Acupuncturist Christine Gibbons Expanding Hackensack Hours

We are happy to inform all of you that acupuncturist Christine Gibbons is now seeing patients at 344 Summit Avenue, Hackensack on Mondays,  Wednesdays, Thursdays and some Friday mornings. She has already been serving patients at this location for many years, and we are thrilled that she is now able to accommodate even more!

Christine is well known to some of our patients and I can recommend her highly to those of you who do not know her already. Many times the addition of acupuncture to your health regimen can help energize healing, reduce pain or inflammation and increase flexibility without the use of drugs. This makes acupuncture another wonderful companion to Chiropractic care for many of our patients. I have every confidence in Christine as a gifted, very experienced, and gentle practitioner of this ancient art.

If you wish to add acupuncture to your quest for optimum health or if you have questions about acupuncture or Christine's practice you can call 201-487-0036 or go to her website christinegibbonsacupuncture.com for more information.

Choose Chiropractic First For Chronic Pain

According to new proposed guidelines for opioids and chronic pain set forth by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the CDC is recommending conservative forms of pain management for those suffering from chronic pain as an initial treatment option, such as chiropractic care. The side effects associated with opioid usage for chronic pain can be severe and at times even deadly. Thus, the CDC is now advising physicians to first recommend conservative care in the treatment of chronic pain. Fortunately, chronic pain associated with the back, neck, spine and extremities can often times can be managed very successfully through safe, natural chiropractic care when delivered by a licensed doctor of chiropractic. If you are suffering from chronic pain, we urge you to call your local doctor of chiropractic today and schedule a no-obligation consultation to see if chiropractic care may be able to help, without all the negative side effects associated with drugs and surgery.

Nighttime Needs To Be Nighttime

Artificial nighttime light may be a significant contributor to obesity, according to new research. In the study, researchers found that nighttime light along with lack of exercise and poor diet accounted for approximately 73 percent of the variation in rates of obesity and excess weight among women and 68 percent among men. Another very recent study found those using tablets for 30 minutes prior to attempting sleep were not only less tired, but their electrical brain activity was also modified. Researchers believe artificial light later in the evening contributes to both unhealthy weight gain and lack of tiredness by suppressing melatonin – a hormone essential in regulating sleep cycles as it anticipates the daily onset of darkness. Using artificial light later in the day when your body begins preparing for sleep confuses the body and as shown by new research, is associated with negative consequences including both unhealthy weight gain and difficulty in getting to sleep. If you’re experiencing unwelcomed weight gain and difficulty in getting and staying asleep, try cutting out all computer work and exposure to bright lights at least 1-2 hours prior to bedtime.

Lowering Stress In Childhood Improves Heart Health In Adulthood

Want to lower your child’s risk for heart disease later in life? Provide them with a happy, low stress environment and you will have done so, according to a new study. In the study, adults who stated to experiencing less stress in their childhood years were 15 percent less likely to have calcium deposits in their arteries - calcium deposits contribute to narrowing of blood vessels and increase the risk for heart attacks. While researchers have a few theories as to why stress in childhood appears to lead to increased cardiovascular disease later in life, the important thing is to provide your child with a low stress environment. After all, there’s plenty of time for stress later in life, as many of us know!
