7 Ways To A Better Diet For You And Your Family

Thursday, December 6th, 2012

A 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.

5 Tips For Staying Ahead Of Holiday Season Stress

Wednesday, November 28th, 2012

Whether you’re ready for it or not, the holiday season is just around the corner.  For some people, this can be a time of overwhelm and stress.

Here are some practical tips that will help you cope, manage or even prevent stressful situations and the effects of stress on your well-being during this holiday season:

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.

4. Create Goals: This is a powerful way to take control of your life and create the life you want.  Goals give you a direction in life. You will bust through stressful situations faster when you know you are on a journey to creating the life of your dreams and vision.

5. 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.

Do a self-inventory.  How is stress affecting you right now? Where are the sources of stress? How can you apply these tips to make your life and your holiday season stress-free?

 

Reactive or Proactive Health Choices?

Wednesday, July 13th, 2011

In today’s fast paced society, sometimes it’s easy to lose track of your health and wellness goals. In some cases, some people don’t take their health seriously until something extreme occurs, like a heart attack or cancer. 

To be healthy and stay healthy you must be proactive versus reactive.  If you find yourself rushing to the doctor’s office or pharmacy once a symptom or pain appears, that’s being reactive. In most cases, by the time the symptom appears, the underlying problem has already been developing.

Taking the proactive approach to your health and wellness puts you in charge and empowers you to make the right choices for your health and wellness way ahead of time. 

When making those health choices, you must include these 5 fundamental pillars to great health: 

  1. Keeping your spine and nervous system optimized with chiropractic care.
  2. Exercise regularly. Minimum 3 times / week.
  3. Eat wholesome, natural, nutritious foods.
  4. Manage your stress and overwhelm.
  5. Create a vision for your life along with well-rounded goals.

These 5 pillars to great health form the foundation to the wellness model taught at Back To Health Chiropractic Centre.

You can read more about each pillar through the various articles on our website.

Choose wisely today. Your health, your happiness and your quality of life depends on it.
