February 2019 Health Newsletter

Print-Friendly Newsletter

February 14, 2019

Dear Friends,

February is a month when we are asked to think about love. "Love your neighbor as yourself"..."Love one another as I have loved you"..."All you need is love"..."Love is the answer"..."Love me, love my dog"...and lots or other expressions of love.

But we don't always think about the fact that loving ourselves and loving one another often takes a backseat to the tasks of life, the worries and the stresses that steal our joy. Love begins within ourselves and is nurtured by the understanding that we are each and all created of love and are forces of love in the universe.

I would like to ask you to think this thought when you open your eyes in the morning and close them at night, "I am loved and I love myself and those around me". Maybe not everyone loves us, but that doesn't matter. Not one of us would be here if it weren't for the power of love!

The staff and I love you and we love to help you be the healthiest you can be. Happy February...Happy Valentine's Day...Healthy Heart Month...Happy Love yourself month! Celebrate with an Chiropractic adjustment given by a chiropractor who LOVES what she does, and who loves her patients! Can you guess who that might be?

 Office hours are Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday 9 -1 and 3 -6 and Saturdays 9 - 1. Call 201-525 -0707 to make an apointment with Joan, Jolanta or Debi at a convenient time.

All the best and we'll see you soon!

Carmel-Ann Mania, D.C.

Don't let your feet let you down

Do you notice fatigue, soreness or pain in you feet or legs? Are you experiencing pain or tiredness in the lower back? Do you notice these more than you used to after exercising or a long workday? Did you know that your feet are unique structures that support is a dynamic way both weight bearing and motion functions of the rest of the body? There are 3 arches in the feet that act to support our� legs, hips, back and neck in what is called the "kinetic chain". When we are balanced from the feet up, then the body can overcome even quite significant differences in leg length, knee, issues, hip, back and neck pain, as well as foot problems. And, that pain in your feet might be coming from an instability in the spine that can be helped by spinal pelvic stabilizing orthotics for your feet!

I want to make you aware that as a service to our patients, we offer digital foot scanning free of charge to patients and their families. Insurance may pay all or part of the cost of custom spinal pelvic stabilizing orthotics, and we work with patients whose plans do not cover to help them afford to get the care they need. Please call the office (201-525-0707) to schedule a free digital exam with your next office visit and find out if custom stabilizing orthotics are likely to help you!

Reduce Your Risk of Adverse Drug Events with Chiropractic Care

If you are in chronic pain from back problems, you may be tempted to try anything to keep the hurt at bay. This might include taking addictive opioid pain killers or analgesics that have negative side effects. These prescription drugs can cause "adverse drug events," which refer to any sort of injury or side effect caused by a medication. Even scarier, the mortality rate from adverse drug events has been rising dramatically. No one wants to die from a pain pill or end up addicted to it. The Good News: Adverse Drug Events Can Be Avoided The next time you are tempted to just medicate your back pain away, contact your chiropractor. By getting comprehensive chiropractic care, you may be able to reduce or completely eliminate your dependence on prescription pain medication. In fact, it's been proven to work. One recent study showed that chiropractic patients had a 51% reduced likelihood of adverse drug events within 12 months compared to nonrecipients. Comprehensive chiropractic care for back pain can include spinal manipulation and adjustments, pain relieving exercises, and other wellness protocols that are safe, non-invasive, and dont have those pesky and often dangerous side effects of drugs. Reduce Pain with Chiropractic Care Today There is no need to risk adverse drug events when there is a safer option with chiropractic care. Contact us today for a consultation!

Seniors: Eat More Vitamins, Lower Your Risk of Frailty

A recent study has linked eating a vitamin-rich, balanced diet with a lower risk of developing frailty for adults age 65 and up. The research comes from the School of Medicine at Universidad de La Frontera in Chile. The study looked at over 1,600 adults over the age of 65, none of which had developed frailty as they got older. All of the participants offered in-depth information about their diet and food habits. After the end of a follow-up period of about 3.5 years, 5.4% of participants (89 adults) had developed frailty. Frailty is defined as a lowered amount of physiological health and functioning. It often includes issues like fatigue, weakness, low activity, and slowness. Most people expect older adults to develop frailty as a byproduct of old age, but frailty isn't totally age-dependent. The Chilean study revealed that the seniors with the lowest levels of vitamin B6 at the beginning were 2.8 times likelier to develop some measure of frailty by the end of the research period. This is in comparison with participants who regularly ate vitamin B6-rich foods like bananas, sweet potatoes, fish, tofu, and chicken. Additionally, participants with the lowest vitamin E levels were 2.3 times likelier to develop some kind of frailty as opposed to those adults with diets rich in vitamin E. Finally, the seniors who ate the least amount of vitamin C were 93% likelier to become frail than their counterparts who regularly ate vitamin C-packed foods like dark leafy greens, broccoli, and lemons.
