The Calorie Conception

Most people were raised with the idea that calories in equals calories out. Counting calories are mainly linked to a desire for losing, gaining, or maintaining weight. The perception of this idea focuses on numbers rather than nutrients. When you fixate on caloric intake and additionally watch the weight on the scale, you can miss key factors for healthy weight maintenance. It is more important to look at the type of foods you’re eating, rather than the number of calories they have.

Breaking the Cycles

Two important cycles to mentally shift while eating would be eating for pleasure and following a strict, specific diet. Getting in the cycle of eating things for pleasure will increase food intake while you are bored and cause you to choose unhealthier options more and more over time. When you restrict yourself by saying you are on a diet, the foods you eat are only for a short period and are not chosen based on nutrients. Diets are rigorous cycles that do not support long term change.

A Healthy Holiday

During the holidays, food is almost the highlight of every gathering. While food is not bad, the choices of food we eat can be. Some holidays have specific food traditions and indulgences. Indulging on excessive amounts of unhealthy food puts your health in jeopardy. Food can even become an idol. It becomes an addiction to eat in a way that consistently affects the body in a negative way. When these decisions are made over time, our health begins to drop. Rather than waiting until something goes wrong, there is a settle shift that will completely transform your health.

Two Simple Shifts to Transform Your Diet and Nutrition

Performance Over Pleasure

Instead of looking at food as a simple pleasure or a way to lose weight, begin to look at food as a source of energy and health. Food is our fuel source so we can perform to our highest ability. When you are looking at your plate, or in a grocery store, ask yourself if each food will give you energy and assist in healing your body. Eliminate foods that only are for pleasure. When you eliminate these foods in your home, you will simultaneously be eliminating unhealthy habits of eating for pleasure over performance. Food can become more pleasurable when the focus shifts to improving our body’s performance.

Quality Over Quantity

Instead of depending on a diet for change, begin to depend on your judgment of food. When you are in tune with your body and the food you are eating, you will unconsciously begin to lose weight. Just because something has fewer calories, doesn’t mean it will assist in weight loss or health. Imagine if you were given two options as a snack, almonds and a Twinkie. You would actually find the almonds would be higher in calories, however, they would still be the healthier option. The health benefits along with the nutrients in almonds outweigh the harmful effects a Twinkie would cause to your body. When calories are the main goal, it can create unhealthy choices based on numbers rather than nutrients.

Top 5 Ways to Detox Your Home

Three Day Detox

Many programs and products promote a detox to your body. A typical marketed item will include a 3 day cleanse. The problem is a true detox involves more than just your body; it also includes your environment. Detoxing your home will detox your body since you are removing toxins within your environment. Some symptoms that you need to detox your home can include allergies, asthma, migraines, and more. Some people don’t show signs of symptoms, but the chemicals our bodies are exposed to are storing up the chemicals within fat cells that alter weight and hormones.

More Than a Cleanse

Another true detoxing factor is making it individualized to every person. A specified detox will account for many factors including what you eat, past vaccinations, cleaning products, and much more. If you only detox your body short term through food, you will be missing all the other toxins that continue to come into your body in different ways including throughout your home. Making changes in your home will drastically eliminate toxins that are harmful to the body.

Top 5 Things to Remove From Your Home

1. Detergent

Whether it is laundry or dishwasher detergent, they can be extremely harmful to the body. Many studies link detergents to carcinogens affecting the body. Dishwasher fumes can be a toxic nightmare as well as the residue of the detergent staying on the plates and cups you eat and drink from. Find brands that are organic and non-chemical in a health store or online.

2. Surface Cleaners

Bleach, Windex, or countertop cleaners are extremely toxic and hard on your nervous system. Again, you can research chemical-free cleaners to find a toxic-free option. Eliminating these toxic items will remove deodorizers and phthalates. You can create your cleaners using vinegar, lemon essential oil, on guard or thieves oil, and water.

3. Air Fresheners

Anywhere from Febreze or Glade to candles can be cancerous due to the high toxins within each product. This can also include perfume and cologne. These items in your home or car can be swapped with organic oils in a diffuser. When you expose your air with toxins, your whole body can be affected by inhaling it. It is best to stay far away from any air freshener.

4. Antibiotic Products

If you researched hand sanitizer and cancer carcinogens, you will find that the two factors are linked together. Avoid antibiotic soaps, shampoos, and other body products. These products are harmful to the body even though advertised to support it. An easy way to remember that antibiotic products are harmful is understanding “biotic” means living things and “anti” means against. Do not buy products that are against our natural living makeup.

5. Lawn Care

Lawn products include round-up, pesticides, and herbicides. These toxins can mutate the environment from altering the genetic makeup of bugs to creating an overgrowth of fungus and algae. If you are using round up to make your yard look pretty, it is putting your pets and family at risk. These products are linked to lymphomas and many other health factors due to destroying people’s microbiome which makes up the majority of your body.

Shocking Statistics

We are the sickest country in the world. Our life expectancy is decreasing. Our infant mortality rate is higher in America than it is in any other industrialized country. 1 out of 2 people have heart disease. 1 out of 3 people has cancer. These statistics should be eye-opening and awakening.

Sometimes Less is More

We have more doctors and medicine than any other country, yet we remain the sickest ones. If doctors and medication were the answer to all health issues, should we be the sickest country? The definition of insanity is doing the same thing again and again while expecting different results. Our healthcare system has continued to use a system labeled “health” care, yet the system focuses more on disease than true health. With an endless amount of medications and treatments, we should become healthier and lessen the amount of healthcare needed. However, as time passes it proves over and over again that this is not the case.

A New Foundation

If you had no idea the true meaning of health, you would at least understand some necessities for a healthy lifestyle such as clean water, clean oxygen, clean food, clean minerals, and more. You can understand the importance of rest to regenerate your health. You also know that movement is important, beyond working out, for a healthy body. More than just the physical aspects, a healthy lifestyle requires a mindset shift. The core values of Queen City Health Center layout a true foundation for health. If you focus on these five things, you will begin to advocate a healthy life for yourself and see drastic changes outside of following the protocols of our current health care system.

Arthritis and Joint Pain

Impact of Inflammation

Many factors over time can cause both arthritis and joint pain. Putting your body in a stress state due to either nutrition, activity levels, or other stressors will cause your body to become inflamed. When your body has a lot of inflammation, your joints also become inflamed and can be diagnosed as arthritis. Our body’s response to inflammation can result in pain. When our body is in pain, it is signaling that there is something wrong.

The Medical Approach

Typical medical solutions for these issues involve a cortisol shot or a high dosage NSAID (a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug) to alleviate pain. Although pain may be lifted at the moment, these two solutions cause more health issues down the road including heart issues and gut issues. The medical model desires to reduce inflammation, however, the solutions are synthetic and not dealing with the root cause. Fortunately, our body is powerfully and wonderfully made to heal itself. Here are the top five things to naturally help arthritis and joint pain.

Top 5 Solutions for Arthritis and Joint Pain

1. Movement

A lot of joints become inflamed due to lack of movement. The liquid around the joint needs to be released for new fluid to come in. If there is a lack of movement, joints become dehydrated and can cause degeneration. Add all range of motion movements throughout your entire day.

2. Supplements

These natural supplements assist in reducing inflammation and restore strength in your joints. Turmeric, Boswellia, and ginger are great for reducing inflammation. Omega-3 fish oil, cod liver oil, and CBD oil help alleviate joint pain. MSN, Glucosamine Chondroitin, and bone broth help the structure of your joint.

3. Alignment

Medical professionals say arthritis is genetic. This is false; it can be as simple as having a misalignment. Get consulted by a chiropractor who can find the misalignments throughout the body to remove interference and allow the body to heal itself properly. Not only can pain be removed, but also the core issue itself can be removed as well.

4. Diet

The minimum change you need to make to your diet is to eat an anti-inflammatory diet. This includes removing sugars, grains, and processed foods. The ultimate step following this would be to follow a plant paradox diet. This eliminates gluten, high levels of lectin, and also dairy. These foods can cause high levels of inflammation and digestive issues.

5. Testing

If you have tried tips 1-4 and are still experience symptoms of joint pain, get your gut tested. You can be following the supplements and diet recommended, but due to the condition of your gut, it cannot handle the change. With the westernized diet, it has destroyed our digestive system. After being tested, you can focus on healing your gut. Your gut can be connected to arthritis and joint pain.

Back Pain Epidemic

Number One Visit

The most common reason people see a doctor is due to back pain in America. Whether patients visit for pain relief or endure back surgery, a common medication prescribed is an opioid. The opioid crisis has become an epidemic in itself. Even for mild cases, most Americans are also used to taking an NSAID (nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug). Instead of accepting the risk of falling into a medicated reliance, there must be another solution to healing these issues.

Providing Another Solution

Most back pain issues start as a mild ache, but over time create a larger issue. Instead of looking for sources to mask pain, we should focus more on what your body is telling you. When your body has a pain response, it signaling that there is a specific cause needing to be healed. Chiropractic care has shared the great connection between the spine and the rest of your entire body. Instead of undergoing unnecessary surgery, or relying on medications, there is another solution to these five underlying causes of back pain.

5 Back Pain Causes + The Solutions

1. Subluxation

Each joint within the spine needs to have movement. A subluxation occurs when there is an interference to the joints, vertebrae, or disks. We sit 90% of our day from things such as sitting at work, sports injury, sleeping wrong, and more. This creates a stress response, like back pain.

Solution: Go to a chiropractor to get consulted, x-rayed, and then adjusted to remove subluxations within the spine.

2. Inflammation

There can be inflammation within your apophyseal joints. These joints can be jammed. It is most common with anyone who has a pelvic tilt, athletes, or people who sleep on their stomachs. If you have forward head posture, your joints can lock up as well. When these are inflamed, it can cause back pain.

Solution: Strengthen and stretch your hip flexors and hip extensors. Also, eliminated foods that increase inflammation.

3. Disk Issues

This can include disk herniation, a bulging disk, disk degeneration, or broken disk. Inside our fluid-filled disks, there are ligaments. Movement creates the flow of old fluid and new fluid. You can also tear these ligaments over time and loss the proper curve in your spine which then distributes weight on your spine improperly. This will eventually cause back pain.

Solution: Prioritize movement daily, which can also be used as preventative care. Perform a full range of motion exercises.

4. Organic Issues

Kidney issues, like kidney stones, can cause a dull aching pain. Digestive issues, like constipation, can cause back pain. Added pressure while pregnant can also cause back pain. Upper back pain can be signaling gull bladder issues, such as inflammation.

Solution: Consult with your chiropractor on nutrition to heal the gut. Also, getting specific adjustments to the spinal regions connected to these organs.

5. Muscle Strain/Tear

This is the least common issue that stems from back pain. Most people assume this is the issue because of your muscles spasm. Car accidents or sports injuries typically cause this and would be considered as an acute injury as opposed to the other causes.

Solution: Have your chiropractor take x-rays to see all possible reasons for back pain to identify this cause. Rest and adjustments will allow your body to properly heal itself.

Dieting FADs

There are many diets and programs spread over the internet, television, and books. When a person chooses to try multiple programs, it is referred to as “yo-yo dieting.” This involves completing a program, but gaining the weight back after the program ends. Each program promises weight loss, but what happens when the program is over? How do you maintain the weight you are looking to achieve?

Create a Foundation

Unfortunately, there are countless ideas and opinions about how to lose weight best. Instead of it being black and white, weight loss is truly dependent on your body. Many factors play a role in weight loss including hormones, calories, diet, exercise, and more. For example, if your hormones are imbalanced and not working properly you will have a hard time losing weight. If you are consuming an immense amount of calories, you will inevitably gain more weight. A true weight loss program needs to be individualized, but a general weight loss can be founded on these five crucial steps.

5 Foundation Tips for Long-term Weight Loss

1. Remove Certain Foods

The main foods you want to remove are sugar, grains, bad fats, and dairy. The majority of many people’s diet contains each of these foods mainly stemming from the food pyramid given to us promoting these food groups. There are many diets such as the Keto and Paleo, but the only diet to focus on is an anti-inflammatory diet. Inflammation is what causes weight gain, imbalanced hormones, and disease. The body creates a natural anti-inflammatory called cortisol. When you eat these foods causing inflammation, cortisol increases, and your body goes into survival mode. When your body is in this stress state, you will gain weight and sustain an imbalance of hormones.

2. Intermittent Fasting

When you do intermittent fasting, it gives your body time to heal and reset. When you limit the window of time you are eating, you eat less and your body uses stored energy (fats) during the fasting state. Working out in your fasting period will also kick your body into burning fat faster. A common way to do IF is fasting 16 hours and eating within an 8-hour window. More benefits from this system of eating include boosting your immune and digestive system, lowers insulin levels, oxidizes your body, and more.

3. High-Intensity Interval Training (HIIT)

Movement and exercise are vital for weight loss. This type of workout, however, is beneficial due to its duration in time and health benefits. HIIT does not raise stress levels or interfere with hormones. It also does not burn muscle; instead, it keeps you in a fat-burning mode. Sometimes the type of workouts you do can make your body hold onto weight due to the excess of stress you are putting on your body. HIIT workouts can be as short as 10-20 minutes long and utilize your fat as energy even after the workout is complete.

4. Apple Cider Vinegar

Apple cider vinegar helps improve digestion, breaks down food, and improves your microbiome. It is recommended to take one shot of ACV in an 8 oz. glass of water first thing in the morning and can be repeated right before bed. This also stabilizes blood sugar levels and keeps insulin levels down. You can research the many health benefits ACV has along with supporting weight loss.

5. Don’t Eat Before Bed

Make sure the last thing you eat is 3-4 hours before going to bed. When you go to sleep, your body uses glucose to regenerate your body. After your body burns through glucose, it will produce ketones that shift your body into a fat-burning state. Begin by shifting late-night eating habits to drinking tea or ACV because it will not disrupt your fasting state.

The Harmful Prescription

The amount of issues for woman’s health have sky rocketed whether it has to do with menstruation, PSCOS, cramping, and more. The scary factor to many of these symptoms is caused by a prescription of birth control. The prescription is being used toward those symptoms rather than to prevent pregnancy as it was originally intended for. Birth control not only masks these symptoms, but creates a lot more health effects when it comes to woman’s hormones. Birth control alone can affect not only the chances of getting pregnant in the future, but also increase the risk of having cervical and breast cancer. Birth control synthetically alters how the body is supposed to naturally function and creates an interference to your body adapting in a healthy way.

The Root of Imbalances

A menstrual issue means your body is dealing with a hormone imbalance. Addressing the root cause is the only way to eliminate these health symptoms. The increase of (chemical, physical, and emotional) stress in our society adds to the likeliness of a hormone imbalance. Some stressors are unavoidable, but there are many you have the ability to eliminate in from your daily life. Missing a menstrual cycle or not having them at all is extremely unhealthy to your body. Masking hormonal issues takes a negative toll on your overall health. Your cycle should last 5-7 days to produce the endometrium. This means your body has enough lining to reproduce, proper hormone balance, and overall health. The only way for your body to heal itself is to balance itself out with zero interference so it can become more resilient to stress.

4 Ways to Change Hormone Issues

1. Anti-Inflammatory Diet

There are many resources online or in books that elaborate on this type of diet, but eliminating foods such as pasta, bread, rice, and grains will allow your body to stabilize itself to remain in homeostasis, which ultimately is the only place your body can level its hormones out naturally.

2. Adaptogens

Unlike medications that mask symptoms, adaptogens support the body to be more resilient to stress and level the hormones within your body. Some amazing examples of these would be a high quality CBD oil or Ashwagandha.

3. Reduce Stress

Eliminating unnecessary stressors can be emotional, chemical, or physical. Emotional stressors can be dealt with by evaluating your mindset and surrounding yourself with a support system. Chemical stressors can be avoided when you are conscious of things such as makeup, laundry detergent, air fresheners, and more. Physical stress can be eliminated when you are educated on how a woman’s body operates under intense training or exercise.

4. Chiropractic Care

Adjustments help your body adapt to the environment around you. A response is sent to your parasympathetic and sympathetic nervous system to come into balance. When these are in balance, your endocrine system works healthily and your hormones produce properly.

Bonus Tip: Hormone Testing

Chiropractic care helps immensely with issues involving stress to the body, but also offers hormone testing.  Ask your chiropractor for more information about testing your levels to see exactly which hormones are imbalanced. Chiropractors are not trying to mask symptoms, they are the ones willing to do what it takes to find the root cause.

A Need for Change

There is something drastically wrong in our healthcare system when our country consumes the most prescribed drugs yet the third leading cause of death is medication. Not only are we consuming most of the medication, but also opioids specifically are at an all time high. Simultaneously, we are also cutting out organs, removing pieces of our spine, and consuming chemicals every single day.

The Paradigms

The two options we have will determine the course of our life. The most popular one being used is the medical paradigm, while the other holistic approach is the vitalistic paradigm. We have been convinced as a society to automatically side and trust the medical paradigm. The medical paradigm says your body is weak, unintelligent, and needs doctors and medications to function properly. Prevention is a medical tool that only blocks your body’s ability to adapt and, over time, makes you sick. If you cannot adapt, your body is not healthy. Another issue is that it does not line up with science, physiology, or the philosophy that our body is powerfully and wonderfully made. The main concept of the vitalistic paradigm says our body is powerful and can regulate itself without interference. God created a complex system that works together with the ability to heal and restore.

Overload of Stress

Stress causes interference to the body whether it is physical, emotional, or chemical stress. How resilient we equip our body to be determines the outcome of interacting with these types of stress. For example, if you work out and are recovering the following day, you are allowing your body to become more resilient. The first way to increase resilience and health is to eliminate unnecessary stress such as chemical stressors. This include medications, which only block your body’s ability to heal, adapt, and restore itself as it was created to. Knowing which paradigm you choose will miraculously define the health for your life.  You have to ask yourself, “which will it be?”

The Medical Paradigm

1. Your body is weak, unintelligent, and needs medicine to be healthy.

2. Healing comes from the outside in.

3. The Germ Theory stating that viruses and bacteria are the cause of sickness.

4. You can take a medication every daily and be healthy.

5. Your body is separated into systems.

6. A cure is in the form of a pill.

The Vitalistic Paradigm

1. You are powerfully and wonderfully made. Your body is self healing, self regulating, and doesn’t not need help healing.

2.  Your body needs no interference.

3. Medications block your body’s ability to adapt and is the opposite of healthy.

4. Epigenetics explain that genes alone do not determine our characteristics.

5. Your body is the sum of its parts. Every part has a role.

6. The cure is inside of you.

The Newest Research

In 2019, studies have shown that chiropractic care is an effective protocol in aiding the breech presentation in the birthing process. Annually about 4 percent of women report to their obstetrician with a fetus in breech presentation, or rather when the fetus us not head down but rather has their buttocks or feet closer to the cervix. Expectant mothers notice their baby is in a breech position most notably by symptoms such as heavy pressure on the pelvis, kicks felt to the pelvis or to the ribcage.

Drawing Conclusions

The Journal of Pediatric, Maternal and Family Health Chiropractic did a recent case study which found positive health outcomes following Chiropractic care of a pregnant patient with a transverse lie fetal position. Throughout the case study, a patient at 27 weeks pregnant was adjusted 29 times using Webster Technique (developed particularly for prenatal women) and had pre and post confirming the transition of the fetus from breech to a vertical position with the head facing downward. Another study in 2012, a pregnant patient of 30 weeks with twins was diagnosed by her obstetrician of breech positioning, underwent 5 adjustments over 3 weeks. Her obstetrician confirmed that the involved twin was in proper vertical position post treatment and the patient had a successful drug free, vaginal birth one month after the initial visit to the chiropractor.

Healthy Mother and Baby

The conventional resolution to a breech fetus at the point of delivery, is a cesarean procedure but there is a complication to both mother and baby. Infection, hemorrhage, injury to organs and a risk of additional surgeries are possibilities for birthing mothers let alone the possible risks to the infant including breathing problems, lower APGAR scores and possible fetal injury during the procedure. Prior to delivery, the established method of turning fetus is through External Cephalic Version or ECV. This involves the doctor using their hands to manipulate the baby’s position by forcefully pushing on the mother’s belly and abdomen to turn the baby from the outside. One obstetrician stated that the procedure reports a 50/50 success rate of turn and it is very uncomfortable and painful for women. The Webster technique is a specific chiropractic analysis adjustment. The goal of the adjustment is to reduce the effects on pelvic joint dysfunction and in doing so, function in the sacral/pelvic region is improved. Relaxing the tense muscles and ligaments around the pelvis, may allow the baby to comfortably assume the best position for birth.

Four Ways to Have a Healthy Pregnancy

1. Awareness of Stress

The first step in a healthy term is decreasing stress and the level of the stress hormone known as cortisol, that can increase up to 4 times more than normal whilst pregnant. Gentle stretching, breathing exercises, meditation and regular sleeping cycles can reduce high tense and anxious moments to aid in the body’s balance to stress.

2. Chiropractic Care

Prenatal patients experiencing pelvic discomfort, lower back and sacrum pain have garnered relief throughout their term of pregnancy and being under chiropractic care. Low force techniques such as Webster and Thompson technique allow the misalignment of the body to be corrected, ligaments to be relaxed and the nervous system to be in balance for the birth of the newborn child.

3. Nutrition

Food is a crucial part of life and especially during pregnancy. Having enough carbohydrates for energy is key that comes from whole foods such as lentils, legumes, fruits and vegetables. Decreasing trans fats such as vegetable and canola oils can reduce the chances of hypertension, obesity in the child and Diabetes Mellitus. Using ghee and avocado oil to cook hot food, wild caught fish and avocados can introduce good healthy fats into Mother’s and baby’s system before birth to help with absorbing nutrients and to produce important hormones. It is important to remember that though weight gain occurs during pregnancy, which some woman are self-conscious of during this time, it is important to remember that undernourished mothers can produce less milk by 30% and lower calorie milk by up to 20% so proper food intake is key during and after pregnancy.

4. Movement

It is helpful for your body to adapt for the pregnancy by incorporating low impact exercises such as walking or yoga. In addition to exercising, stretches are equally as important to be prepared for your birth.

Vacation Season

Whether you’re an avid traveler or  go on a vacation once a year, there are many preventative ways to assure a healthy travel experience. Most vacations involve indulgence of food and drinks followed by a week of your body recovering. After eating certain foods, you may feel fatigued which disables you to enjoy your vacation to the fullest. Most vacations also cost tons of extra money solely due to going out to eat. Luckily, we have some tips to help you out!

Health Concerns Over Time

One of the main places that is impacted while traveling is your spine. Your spine is connected to your nervous system which controls the functioning and healing of your body. It is important to know how to prevent negative impact to your spine while also staying healthy during your travel experience.

3 Ways to Assure Healthy Traveling

1. Traveling Process

A healthy trip begins with the mindset going into it. Being aware of your posture while driving can prevent aches and pains during your travel experience. A posture tip for the car would look like arranging your rear view mirror high enough to where you can see, but also in a position to make you sit up straight. Having the seat leaned back, leaning to the side, or driving with one arm can cause misalignment over a long period of time.

2. Prolonged Sitting

Don’t go more than a couple hours sitting. At rest stops, make it priority to do some jumping jacks, squats, and stretches. Even during your drive, or ride on an airplane, you can wobble your body back and forth to keep your spine in movement. Other ways to take advantage of prolonged sitting is wiggling your toes and moving your legs.

3. What You Eat

Food for long road trips are typically purchased at a gas station along with caffeinated drinks. To avoid these options with high fructose corn syrup and other added sugars, go to your local grocery store to prepare in advance. Purchase organic whole foods that are convenient and healthy for your body to function such as bananas, blueberries, and coconut water. Even at your destination, instead of eating out purchase organic groceries like grass fed meat, free range eggs, and lots of fruits and vegetables. This saves money, time, and health. 

Follow Up Trip

It is vital after traveling to visit your chiropractor. Getting back to your normal routine adjustments will keep your spine aligned and strong. Your chiropractor will be able to adjust specific areas effected by long distance driving, airplane rides, and more. Your body will thank you after traveling.
