A Healthy Lifestyle Is A Decision Away

Happy Jumping A Healthy Lifestyle Is A Decision AwayHow to have less stress, more peace, more energy, be stronger and healthier, now and for the long run.

Maple, ON – The common health problems that plague many people today, such as heart disease, cancer, diabetes and obesity, are all preventable diseases. This means that often times, these conditions develop because of things that we do to ourselves on a daily bases.

Your lifestyle choices are a big deal when it comes to enjoying the best health. Your lifestyle choices are a big deal, too, when it comes to preventing heart disease, cancer, diabetes and obesity.

You see, being healthy is a decision away. What this means is that you have the power to be healthy, stay healthy or get healthy. It starts with a decision, such as: “I am committing to being the healthiest I can be, now and forever”.

Being healthy, staying healthy or getting healthy is a choice. The choice is yours. With that, other choices follow that will keep you on the wellness and healthy path.

Choices like eating good nutritious foods; choices like exercising regularly every week; choices like managing your stress with effective coping strategies; choices like planing for your life with inspring goals; choices like getting regular chiropractic care to keep your spine and nervous system healthy.

Yes, a healthy, happy, peaceful, stronger and energetic life is a lifestyle. This lifestyle requires a choice. A decision. Are you up to making that decision for a healthy lifesytle? It starts with you.

Go for it!

Stress Impacts Your Health

Monday, July 29th, 2013

An article by guest author, Dr. Dmitri Sokolov of Healthy Kids & Family Chiropractic in Markham, Ontario.  

Stress 300x300 Stress Impacts Your Health“Stress”, this is one of the most heard words in common social vocabulary, and still not many know how it impacts our health and how to overcome it.

Chronic physical, chemical and emotional stress is the biggest contributor for developing serious conditions such as cardio-vascular diseases and cancer. Interestingly enough that those stressors are the same causes of postural dysfunctions, subluxation.

It is obvious to everyone that by observing posture we can very close estimate an individual health state. Think about it, how do you initially determine a person’s state just by looking at them? What denominator you are using? Their posture!

How do you know if person is angry? Their posture!

How do you know if person is tired? Their posture!

How do you know if person is upset? Their posture!

Frustrated? Their posture!

Sick? Their posture!

Stressed? Their posture!

Happy? Their posture!

Now you know why our parents and grandparents kept bugging us with the same statement “SIT STRAIGHT!” They never got tired saying it. Because they loved us and also because they knew, the better posture we have the more stress we can tolerate, we get less tired and ultimately we get healthier.

Now let’s have look at science. Windsor et. al. studied 50 randomly and causation of their death and relation to the spine and nervous system. The result was astonishing. Scientists discovered 139 diseased organs that killed those people and 138 had direct correlation with the spinal misalignment and nervous system in the spine. 99.5 % of those randomly chosen people had chronic condition and abnormal posture and spinal misalignment.

Since there is a very tight relationship between brain and the body, posture and spinal realignment is the key element to turn stress from causing the disease to cause healthy adaptation and healing.

7 Ways To A Better Diet For You And Your Family

Thursday, December 6th, 2012

Fruits 150x150 7 Ways To A Better Diet For You And Your FamilyA 2004 Statistics Canada report shows that many Canadians “do not have a balanced diet”.

There is a huge problem today with the diet and eating habits of Canadians. 

The Statistics Canada report, titled “Overview Of Canadians’ Eating Habits”1, by Didier Garriguet showed that:

 

  • A majority of Canadians don’t get enough fruits and vegitables in their diet.
  • More then a quarter of men and women in their thirties and forties get more then 35% of their calories from fats.
  • People of all ages get more then 20% of their calories from other low nutritional valued foods (such as butter, beverages like soft drinks and coffee, foods that are sugar like syrups, jams, honey and high-fat, high-salt foods like chips). 
  • A quarter of Canadians, including adults and children, eat something that comes from a fast food outlet.

The question that is important here is … “How are your eating habits?” 

In the fast-paced, mass-production world we live in today, it may seem difficult to eat a balanced nutritional diet. However, that’s not true.  Eating a balanced diet is possible and we have been teaching this at our clinic for years. You too can start making healthier eating choices for yourself, your children and your family.

Here are some tips that will get you starting to eat a healthier, leaner and more nutritional meal.

1. Exercise:  Go for a walk, a light run, do jumping jacks or push-ups.  Other ideas are home-based exercise programs, going to a gym, rock climbing or playing a favourite sport.  Whatever form of exercise you choose, it will certainly get you feeling better and it’s a great way to release stress.

2. Eat Good Wholesome Foods: More fruits and vegetables are a must in your diet.  They have nutrients, minerals, vitamins and antioxidants that help support your body.  Smoothies, juicing and “green” shakes are easy ways of getting more fruits and vegitables in your diet. 

3. Get Complete With Any Disagreements: Relationships are a huge source of stress for many people, whether it is family, spouses, friends or co-workers.  Restoring a relationship with another person is many times just a conversation away.  Forgiveness is the key, not the blame-game.  Take time to have that overdue conversation.

Chiropractic Care: One of the many benefits of chiropractic care is a better ability to handle stress.  Stress activates the nervous system, gets you in a flight or fight response and increases stress hormones (cortisol and epinephrine). On an ongoing bases, this can be damaging to your body.  Chiropractic helps restore balance and harmony to the nervous system. If you are under chiropractic care, keep up your check-ups and adjustments.  If you are not under chiropractic care, this is a perfect time of year to get a chiropractic check-up.

How To Prevent A ‘Heart Attack Grill’-Like Incident

Wednesday, February 15th, 2012

Did you hear? Fox News reported about a man who suffered a heart attack while dining at a popular Las Vegas restaurant and the restaurant is called Heart Attack Grill.

Irony, you call it? Coincidence? Or was it a series of choices that led to an impactful wake-up call for this man? Luckily the paramedics arrived in time to help this man and reports say he is alive.

More then likely this wasn’t due to a one-time meal at a high-calorie restaurant but due to a series of choices that culminated in a traumatic and life-threatening incident.

At our clinic, Back To Health Chiropractic Centre, we teach about choices at our wellness workshops and lectures. I tell our patients that the choices you make today in life will shape your future.  And if you want to live a life of your dreams and vision, the choices you make today absolutely matter.  So you owe it to yourself to make the right choices for your health and your well-being, not just for now but for the rest of your life.
