The reduction of hormones may lead to more symptoms in both women and men. Androgens is the blanket term used for the sex hormones of estrone, estradiol, estriol, progesterone, and testosterone. As we age, it is natural for these homones to deplete. In women, clinically I find they complain of more physical symptoms: Hot flashes, night sweats, aches and pains, and of course ? weight gain. The men in my practice generally show more mental/emotional symptoms such as depression or acting out sexually.
Our immune system is present to allow us to live within our environment in harmony. It would make sense to keep that environment sterile to protect ourselves from coming in contact with germs that inevitably lead to disease right? This doesn't seem to be the case, according to an article in Pathways magazine, produced by the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association. Eliminating bugs by overusing antibacterial products can actually have a negative effect to the immune systems of developing children, and can increase the chances of them having asthma later in life.
Menopause is medically described as absence of menstruation for one year. What women often complain of is menopausal symptoms. These can range from physical symptoms such as hot flashes and cold sweats to mental emotional problems such as anger and irritability to deep despair and depression. However not all women experience these symptoms. Menopause can creep into a woman?s life as early as 30 years old and can come as late as 58. Because of the storage of hormones in the body, usually the symptoms may only appear one to two years after the monthly show has ceased.
So my husband is a fan of Cosco and has to go up and down EVERY isle. A few weeks ago, he brought home a "Griddler Gourmet" Panini Grill. At first I was skeptical of the $90 piece of cookware. However, after much use over the last month, I must say that I am Impressed! I can take frozen chicken out of the freezer, put it straight on the Panini Grill, and have moist chicken breasts in 10 minutes. I also made frozen salmon in 7 minutes. I spray olive oil on the Panini for the grilled veggies. Red Bell Peppers and Carrots are my favorites so far.

Then increase your flexibility! Many amateur golfers believe in order to hit the ball farther they must increase their strength, but in actuality flexibility is vastly more important to the long game than strength. Distance is determined primarily by club head speed. The larger the arc that the club head travels through, the greater the club head speed on contact with the ball.
To hit longer and more powerful golf shots you must be willing to improve your posture and flexibility? the focus of Chiropractic care for over 100 years.
This question comes up frequently when I meet someone new to chiropractic, and many individuals are surprised to hear how much schooling we undergo.
Prolonged sitting is a frequent cause of back and neck pain. While extended periods of sitting are best avoided, for many, it's a fact of life.
When sitting, it's important to keep the back straight, knees bent, and head centered over the shoulders. Slouching forward may be comfortable and allow the spinal muscles to relax but gradually overstretches spinal ligaments, leading to back and neck pain among other problems. I always encourage patients to maintain a "neutral spine" position at all time is ideal.
Spinal alignment is so important, especially as we grow. Many of the spinal problems that we see in adults can be traced back to childhood falls, injury, or more commonly, poor posture resulting from carrying back packs or spending endless hours playing video or computer games. It is very important at this developmental stage to consider care for your child.

Here we are at the beginning of a new year. Most of us have made our resolutions and set our goals.....but are they the same as last year? Are you STILL wanting to lose weight yet again? Are you finding that year after year its the same old resolution of losing weight, eating better, and getting in shape? The first few weeks you are excited, motivated, dedicated.....only to find yourself off track a few weeks later. So what happens? Why do we lose site of our goals? I think it all boils down to one thing: SUPPORT, or Lack of Support.
