As the winter of 2016 began, so did the discomfort in my neck; something I had become accustom to over the past twenty plus years. I was told by a Chiropractor years ago that it was the result of a worn disc in my neck, caused by poor posture. I guest sitting behind a desk for all those years had taken a physical toll on my body. Once I discovered the cause the resolve was to change how I sat for eight hours a day. I was in luck, a promotion within the department sent me to a new work area where technology and medicine had crossed paths, ergonomics. It only made sense that a hospital would be conscious of their employees well being. The discomfort seem to lessen as I begin to retrain the spine in my new ergonomic workspace.
Faced with the same issue as I once gain had to adjust to a new workspace, it dawned on me to seek the services of a Chiropractor for relief. Not only did I receive adjustments on my spine, but information that would give me a new perspective on everything health.
Much of the foods we eat, the medications we take, utensils we use, and the environment we live in has a lot to do with the aches, pains, and disease we’re conflicted with.
For example, many studies have proven the negative effect of sugar, not only to your waistline, but to our overall health. “According to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, added sugar shows up on food and drink labels under the following names: Anhydrous dextrose, brown sugar, cane crystals, cane sugar, corn sweetener, corn syrup solids, crystal dextrose, evaporated cane juice, fructose sweetener, and fruit juice.” Just so you know, my research shows there are 56 names disguised as sugar, how much are your consuming?
It’s almost impossible to avoid sugar, but you can control your intake by reading labels and turning to organic products. Buyer be ware, not all organic products are created equal.
Not only have I benefited from the adjustments by my chiropractor, but I’ve opened my eyes to a whole new way of eating. Please join me for the month of February, as we strive to reduce our sugar intake (foods & drinks) leaning towards a healthier lifestyle.
