Simple Yet Impactful Diet Hacks

When it comes to nutrition, sometimes it's the simplest solutions that end up getting us the best results. Instead of committing to one strenuous diet, for some of us the best possible results come from simply eating healthier and being more conscious of what we're putting into our bodies.

Below, Family Chiropractic & Spinal Health Care Center goes over a few simple changes you can make that will end up making a huge difference on your overall health.

Restrict Eating Times

Start waiting longer to eat your first meal and make sure you get in your final meal of the day 2 hours before you go to bed. For instance, if you go to bed at 10 pm, make sure you don't eat past 8 pm in order to get more restful sleep. If you can eat all of your daily nutrition in an 8-hour window each day you'll experience the many health benefits that have been linked to intermittent fasting.

Eat Smaller Meals

Try to eat 3-5 smaller meals per day instead of a couple of large ones. Overeating increases your chances of being outside your target body weight and also forces the body to spend precious energy on digestion.

Eat Clean

Start saying "no" to fast food and foods rich with processed carbs. Start cutting out sugary foods and choose dark chocolate when you're in the sweets section of the grocery store. Eating clean, whole foods will also promote a healthier GI system.

How Chiropractic Helps Veterans

Did you know that chiropractic treatments offer some distinct benefits to veterans in particular? It's true! Not only do chiropractic treatments help with neck, back, and leg pain, but treatments also offer a plethora of additional health benefits that Family Chiropractic & Spinal Health Care Center will go over in a little more detail below.

Drug-Free Pain Relief

In today's opioid crisis getting drug-free relief for pain that comes up in everyday life can be easier said than done. A chiropractor will never try to give you prescription drugs to solve your problem -- we treat the whole individual to root out pain and discomfort for good.

Improved Cognitive Function

As we advance in age, and especially after experiencing trauma on any level, it's important to keep your mind and body firing on all cylinders. Chiropractic treatments help clear up the communication channels between the mind and body. Adjustments have also been shown to improve mood!

Better Sleep

Chiropractic treatments also benefit those who experience less than restful sleep, helping the body achieve stasis and calm. Patients with insomnia have even shown improvements in their sleep.

Chiropractic for Kids

Chiropractic treatment is not just for those who experience back or neck injuries or just for those who are advanced in age looking to optimize their body's functionality. Young folks and children especially have a multitude of benefits to gain from seeking out chiropractic treatment, whether experiencing pain or not.

Below, Family Chiropractic & Spinal Health Care Center goes over a few ways that our treatments benefit kids of all ages.

Growing Pain Relief

As kids grow they experience what we casually call "growing pains." Kids' bodies change over time, sometimes rapidly, which can cause discomfort. Chiropractic adjustments will help loosen up the joints and treat any displaced muscle, providing drug-free pain relief in the process.

Boost Cognitive Function

Chiropractic treatments have been shown to help boost brain activity. The spine is inextricably connected to your brain, communication channels to which can become disrupted due to spine misalignment. Chiropractic treatments have been shown to help boost mental clarity and focus, not to mention reduce depression and anxiety.

Enhance Sleep

Chiropractic adjustments have been shown to promote a healthy night of sleep and even help patients who experience insomnia.

Tips for Back and Neck Pain Relief

It doesn't matter if you're a seasoned athlete, a high-powered corporate exec, or a server at a high-volume upscale restaurant, your body is going to go through wear and tear that might result in everyday pain.

Common areas for pain include your back, neck, spine, legs, and joints -- all of which can benefit from chiropractic treatment.

Below, Family Chiropractic & Spinal Health Care Center goes over a few tips for back pain relief.

Build Your Back, Neck, and Core Muscle Groups

Pretty much the least fun muscles to work -- your legs, core, neck, and back -- are the most important to work. Make sure your fitness routine includes plenty of exercises that strengthen these key areas of the body.

Stretch/Yoga

Stretching, and, particularly yoga, both offer immense benefits when it comes to relieving tension and easing pain in the body.

Mindfulness/Breathing Exercises

Meditation, mindfulness exercises, and breathing exercises have all been shown to inspire your body's natural pain relief capabilities.

Chiropractic treatments are also a great option for drug-free pain relief. Family Chiropractic & Spinal Health Care Center to schedule your consultation today!

Chiropractic for the Executive

Being an executive and having a hand in the day-to-day operations, not to mention having a huge say in the overall direction of your company short and long term, can bring about a lot of stress, plain and simple. Turns out, chiropractic treatments are actually an amazing countermeasure you can take against the wear and tear your body and brain experience from living the high-paced corporate lifestyle.

Below are a few problems the executive might experience and a few ways that chiropractic benefits business professionals at all stages of the game.

Daily Stress

You might have stress and anxieties that arise from your job, in which cases chiropractic treatment is an amazing, drug free solution that aligns your body, bolsters your internal systems (like your GI tract, immune system, and central nervous system), and has been shown to reduce anxiety, depression, and give you a better night of sleep.

Recovering from a Day or Week of Work

How do you recover from a stressful day or week at work? If you just go out for drinks with coworkers, this might not be getting you the best results and teeing yourself up to succeed tomorrow. Instead, do yoga, or visit your local chiropractor. Chiropractic treatments have been shown to boost energy and help the body recover properly from overuse at work.
