June 2012


Welcome to our June Newsletter.  I hope this month finds you staying well and keeping healthy.  The farmer’s markets are open and the local produce is looking good.  Eat your veggies.  Your body needs vitamin D, so go out and get some sunshine.  Hop on your bike, or paddle board, or in your kayak and get some exercise.  Remember the five facets of health.  Proper rest, exercise, nutrition, a positive mental attitude and chiropractic care!



Intro to Chiropractic

Have you ever tried to refer a friend or family member to our office, but they resisted due to some uncertainty or apprehension about trying chiropractic?  Here’s a great video to share with them about using chiropractic for their lower back issues.  



Kids: Neck and Back Pain?

Do children have a need for chiropractic care.  From a strictly musculoskeletal point of view it would appear so.  Here are two graphs showing the prevalence of neck and back pain in children.





Natural Mosquito Relief

I’m sure you’ve been reading all the headlines about how this will be a bad mosquito season.  You just knew that we would pay dearly for such a mild winter.  Right?  In fact, many of us simply couldn’t enjoy ourselves last winter, with all the worrying about the upcoming pollen and mosquito apocalypse.  Well, here are some natural alternatives to ward off the mosquito assault.  God bless and stay safe out there!  Read more



Feeling Blue?  Try Some Sun. 

A large cross-sectional study of adults suggests a link between low vitamin D levels and depressive symptoms.

The study, published in the November 2011 issue of Mayo Clinic Proceedings, involved 12,594 participants.
All participants completed baseline examinations that included measurement of serum vitamin D  levels and an assessment using the Center for Epidemiologic Studies Depression Scale (CES-D).


According to the investigators, low vitamin D levels were common in the sample as a whole, with 50.7% of participants having levels in either the deficient or the insufficient range. 


In the overall sample, higher vitamin D levels were associated with a decreased risk for current depression, based on CES-D scores. 

This study was one of several that has looked at a connection between depression and Vitamin D.  While other study results have been mixed, it is my opinion, that vitamin D supplementation is a safe preventative strategy when combined with blood testing.


Eating Berrys May Delay Memory Loss

Increased consumption of blueberries and strawberries appears to slow cognitive decline in older women, according to an analysis of data from the Nurses’ Health Study (NHS).


The researchers found that greater intakes of blueberries and strawberries were associated with slower rates of cognitive decline. “Specifically, eating 1 or more servings per week of blueberries or 2 or more servings per week of strawberries appears to be associated with memory benefits,” lead researcher Dr. Devore said.


So get out and do some berry pickin’!  Then some berry eatin’!


Pizza Joint Music

I came across a video of a couple of guys playing music at a pizza place in Utah.  They have an interesting background.  One is a deputy prosecutor, the other is a defense lawyer.  I think you’ll be impressed.  I was.  Turn up the volume on your computer.  I’ll betcha can’t watch just one!
