Do You Break the Rules?

Turns out, the quality of our health is the result of a set of very simple rules. Play by the rules and you have the best chance for optimum health.

Break the rules and you'll pay for it. Not always immediately, but eventually. Here are 10 of the most obvious ones:
  1. You shall breathe. If you stop breathing, breathe in a shallow manner or inhale pollutants, there will be price to be paid.
  2. You shall ingest nutrition. Quality food is needed to fuel, grow and repair your body.
  3. You shall expel wastes. If you expel wastes too quickly or too slowly, you'll suffer.
  4. You shall hydrate. Drink enough so you never feel thirsty.
  5. You shall move. A sedentary lifestyle causes stagnation, poor circulation and hampers the function of the lymphatic system.
  6. You shall rest. Your body needs time to renew and repair.
  7. You shall adapt to your environment. The nervous system orchestrates every cell and tissue.
  8. You shall love. Love your neighbor as yourself.
  9. You shall forgive. Forgive others and forgive yourself.
  10. You shall die. Many try to break this one, but it's natural. It's part of the plan.
Valuing your health and following the rules permits you to live a purposeful life!

Why Chiropractic is the Best Solution for Sciatica Pain


Sciatica and chiropracticSciatica and chiropractic
Sciatica pain is often so debilitating that it forces people to miss work and other normal activities.  Of all patients with low-back pain, sciatica patients have the highest level of disability (1).  In fact, patients with sciatica are disabled for an average of 72 days according to Norwegian public-health records.
Fortunately, a recent study offers hope to sciatica patients: chiropractic care can speed the recovery from sciatica flare ups and allow patients to return to work sooner (2).

The study evaluated 44 Norwegian workers after they came to the hospital with severe sciatica pain. Most of those patients had been experiencing pain for three or more weeks prior to their hospital visit.
The hospital chiropractor examined each patient to evaluate his/her posture and gait, range of motion, and palpation of the lumbar spine.

The chiropractic then performed various joint adjustments to the spine and other limbs that had been injured through patients compensating for pain. Ice treatment was also used to relieve soft tissue soreness.Patients were treated daily in the hospital and later three times a week for the first two weeks. Some patients needed additional follow-up treatment but typically did not exceed 14 treatments.

In matter of 21 days, 91% of patients returned to work full-time. Two patients returned to work part time. Researchers concluded this study demonstrates the potent benefits of collaboration between chiropractors and orthopedic surgeons. Chiropractic care can put an end to your sciatica pain so you can begin living your life fully again.
