Most of us create our own stress. Because deadlines don't produce stress. Debt doesn't produce stress. Traffic doesn't produce stress. And having to speak in public doesn't create stress. What causes these and countless other situations to be stressful is the "story" we make up to surround the deadline, the debt, the traffic and the presentation we have to give.
Your imagination artfully embellishes these stories, making them threatening."If I'm late for the meeting I'll get fired, Read more

It's back again ~ that all too familiar throbbing pain in your head. You suffer from them regularly, but do you know what actually causes your chronic headaches?

We have it made these days, with all of the conveniences our grandparents couldn't even dream of!
But what with cell phones, overnight delivery, drive up windows, microwave ovens, texting and the like, it seems the latest time-saving technology does little more than increase expectations and make us even busier than we were before we had all these modern "conveniences."
How we use time to fulfill our priorities can be a major source of stress.

Imagine the freedom of learning that every effect has a cause! We take this idea for granted, but this was not always the case. In times past many believed that poor health came as punishment from the "gods" or just bad luck. It's difficult to keep and maintain one's health if you don't know what causes poor health.
We see disease and poor health from a slightly different perspective. Germs are a lot like grass seed. They have the potential to germinate and become a healthy green Read more

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.
