Healthy, Happy People Have These 7 Habits In Common. How Many Of These Habits Do You Have?

Maple, ON – Health and happiness … two attributes that all people thrive for. People say, “without your health there is nothing”. I have noticed too that people are consciously or subconsciously searching for happiness in their life.

Interestingly, I have yet to meet a person who is sick that is happy and I have yet to meet a person who is unhappy that is generally healthy.

I have learned that to get what you want in life, look at other people who have what you want and do the same things that they are doing. So, if you are striving to better your health and are searching for happiness, do what other healthy, happy people do.

Here are the 7 Transformational Habits Of Healthy, Happy People:

1. They Get Regular Chiropractic Care – As a chiropractor, I meet many people who are searching for better health. My newest patients, when they come in with pain, stress and other health problems, the last emotion they are expressing is happiness. Some are frustrated with their pain and illness, some saddened and some are worried. But something amazing happens when they pursue chiropractic care … they get healthier, they become pain free, they handle their stress better and their quality of life improves. And this makes them much more happy!! The healthiest, happiest people I have ever met in my life are chiropractic patients. Chiropractic offers a unique approach to health care that aims to discover the root cause of the pain or health problem and then assists in correcting the root cause. Chiropractors work on balancing the nervous system by correcting spinal misalignments that interfere with healthy nerve transmission. The nervous system controls all bodily functions, all healing and all repair. The nervous system, especially the brain, is also involved with emotions and memory. Therefore, when the nervous is functioning optimally, people express better health, better function and improved emotional control. It’s no wonder that people who get regular chiropractic care are healthier and happier.

453 Million Prescriptions … And Canadians Still Getting Sicker?

Monday, January 27th, 2014

Chiropractor in Vaughan (Maple, ON) discusses how to express health naturally from the inside out.

pill bottleChiropractic is often referred to as the missing piece of the puzzle? Actually, I like to be more specific and say chiropractic is the missing piece of the health care puzzle.

Well, consider this … 453 million prescriptions are filled out annually (2008 stat). That’s an average of 14 prescriptions per Canadian citizen a year!!!

However, heart disease is on the rise. Cancer is on the rise. Diabetes is on the rise. Obesity is on the rise. The quality of health for children is declining.

Let me ask you, if Canadians are taking so many drugs, why is that people are getting sicker? 

You see … more drugs is not the answer.  Why? … Because health comes from within, not from a plastic bottle with chemicals.

This is why chiropractic is different. Chiropractic doesn’t add health, it removes the interference to the expression of your inborn healing.

Spine Back

You have the ability to heal, naturally from the inside out and this is expressed through your nervous system (brain, spinal cord and nerves).  But a shift in spinal bones (spinal misalignment) will cause an interference in that expression of normal health.

Today’s tip, then, is to make spinal care a fundamental pillar of your health and wellness.  Chiropractic works to correct the problem by removing the interference with specific scientific chiropractic adjustments. With the interference removed, the body is in a better position to naturally express full health. Research shows that an optimal spine equals optimal health. 

If you are stressed-out, in pain or already have a health problem or condition, give yourself an opportunity to be guided to heal from the inside out with chiropractic. Get a chiropractic spinal check up today with a chiropractor in your community. If you are looking for answers and want to see how chiropractic can help, please give us a call.

If you are currently under chiropractic care, congratulations and keep it up.  

Be part of health care, not disease care.  It’s about better living naturally, not better living by chemistry. Choose chiropractic today for optimal health. An optimal spine equals optimal health.

If you are new to chiropractic and want to see how chiropractic can help you relieve pain, conquer stress and express more health, give us a call at (905) 303-1009.

5 Stress Relief Tips For The Holidays

Monday, December 16th, 2013

Chiropractor in Vaughan gives advice for conquering stress during the holiday season.

Stressed At WorkMaple, ON – Stress seems to be an ongoing problem for many people throughout the year. However, when it comes to the Christmas and holiday season, it feels like the stress builds up by 10 times. The holiday season is meant to be a festive time to enjoy with family and friends. Make this year’s holiday season more festive, more cheerful and less stressful with these five stress relief tips.

5 Stress Relief Tips For The Holidays

1. Get good quality sleep. People are more concerned about the amount of hours they sleep (quantity) versus the quality of sleep. Although you want to get a good 8 hours sleep a night, it’s way more important to be sure you sleep through your entire sleep cycles. Planning your bedtime and wakeup time around the natural sleep cycle will help your body rest better at night and recurperate from a stressfull day. The average human sleep cycle is 90 minutes. You go through several sleep cycles a night. So, if you complete 5 sleep cycles, that means you slept for 7.5 hours (7 hours and 30 minutes). If you complete 4 sleep cycles, that means you slept for 6 hours. People that have followed this tip have told me that they woke up feeling more refreshed and more rested in the morning. These numbers are used here as an illustration. It may be different for you. The key is to find out what your average sleep cycle is and plan your bedtime and wake up time such that you wake up at the end of you last sleep cycle.

Stress Impacts Your Health

Monday, July 29th, 2013

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

Young Woman Holding Her Neck in Pain“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.

4 Health Benefits To Walking And Running

Monday, May 27th, 2013

Family WalkingThe American Heart Association journal Arteriosclerosis, Thrombosis and Vascular Biology published a study recently about the health benefits associated with walking and running.  At Back To Health Chiropractic Centre, we teach that the key to life-long wellness is prevention and healthy lifestyle choices. One of those lifestyle choices must be in the category of exercise, which is one of Back To Health Chiropractic Centre’s 5 Pillars of Great Health.

One of the easiest forms of exercise you can do that requires no gym membership, no weights and no equipment is walking and running.  Our clinic is a big advocate of walking and running as a form of exercise because of the many exercise-related health benefits they provide.

Here is what the American Heart Association journal Arteriosclerosis, Thrombosis and Vascular Biology reported:

Walking and running can:

  1. Lower the risk of high blood pressure.
  2. Lower the risk of high cholesterol.
  3. Lower the risk of diabetes.
  4. Lower the risk of coronary heart disease.

Also, the health benefits increase the more people walk or run each week.

Keeping healthy is a process that involves lifestyle factors such as eating good foods and getting regular exercises.  Many of the degenerative diseases such as heart disease, diabetes and cancer can be prevented with better lifestyle choices.  Start your wellness journey today by going for a walk or a run.

Healing is the rediscovery of who we are and who we have always been.” – Joan Borysenko

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?
