Knockout Superbugs Safely with Natural Home Remedies
Commercial cleaning products have a whole laundry list of toxic tongue twisters. Phthalates, phenols, flame retardants and per-and polyfluorinated alkyl are just to name a few. Exposure to these standard, harsh unnatural cleaners slowly wear away at your immune system leaving us vulnerable to invaders. All these antibacterial sprays and solutions affect the ecosystem of our lives.
For the most part, a simple DIY solution is all that is needed to wipe clean a surface or keep bad bacteria away. Here are two alternative natural recipes to common cleaning chemicals.
Tub Scrub….. This is an abrasive, antibacterial cleaners
will leave your bathtub and shower clean without compromising your skin's
delicate surface. 1 cup of baking soda, 1 splash of water, 5 drops of
peppermint essential oil. Add all ingredients into a jar and mix. For cleaning, add a scoop to your sponge and rise with water after scrubbing.
Tea Tree Oil Hand Sanitizer….. Forget the commercial hand sanitizers that mess with your skin's microbiome. Use this recipe as a nontoxic alternative. 3 tablespoons aloe vera gel, 1 tablespoon filtered water, 5 drops tea tree essential oil. Add contents into a non-toxic dispenser. Use as often
as you like.
From Olympic gold medalists like Katie Nageotte, to painters, firefighters and gold-medal moms, everyone deserves world-class chiropractic care.

Key Benefits of Foam Rolling Restore/Maintain Range of Motion
Tissues can often become restricted in gliding or movement, whether within an individual muscle or a muscle adhering to surrounding tissues. This can result from injury, repetitive micro-damage, chronic shortening, lack of movement, and/or over/underuse. Foam rolling over these tissues can manually move and create a shearing force to move and glide more freely. Movement should be slow over the foam roller at a rate of 1 inch per second and pausing, or slowly moving back and forth, over restricted or painful areas.
Moves Fluid Through the Tissues - Blood provides nutrients and oxygen to every cell and tissue in the body and then lymph drains the debris and carbon dioxide from the tissues and detoxifies the area. Fluids can get stagnant and may not flush the tissues when muscles are not getting adequately worked or moved through a full range of motion. Foam rolling can act like a pump to push and force fluid to migrate in and out of the tissues. This can help remove toxic waste substances and allow fresh, nutrient filled blood to enter the area to help the tissue to recover and stay healthy.

Box breathing is a powerful, yet simple, relaxation
technique that aims to return breathing to its normal rhythm. It can be used to
clear the mind, relax the body, and improve focus.
Whether your job creates moments of high stress or anxiety,
your kids or family members challenge your patience, or you randomly have
moments throughout your day that you worry or clench your teeth, box
breathing can help bring you back to a calmer and optimal resting
While you can do this anywhere, it is preferable to sit with
your back supported in a comfortable chair and your feet on the floor.
1. Close your eyes. Breathe in
through your nose while counting to four slowly. Feel the air enter your lungs.
2. Hold your breath inside while
counting slowly to four. Try not to clamp your mouth or nose shut. Simply avoid inhaling or exhaling for 4
3. Begin to slowly exhale for 4
4. Repeat steps 1 to 3 at least
three times. Ideally, repeat the three steps for 4 minutes, or until calm returns.
If you find the technique challenging to begin with, try
counting to three instead of four. Once used to the technique, you may choose to count to five or six.

Is Your Low Back Pain Caused by Slouching Posture?
One of the most common Musculo-skeletal ailments in today’s society is chronic low
back pain. In many cases, it is caused by weak abdominal and core muscles
leading to excessive extension among the joints in the back of the spine.
Conventional treatment is intended to restore movement to any segmental
restrictions and strengthen the surrounding “core” muscles
to correct the global imbalance and remove the excessive straining force on
those involved joints. This, however, is not easily achievable if there are
other forces at play complicating this seemingly simple strategy.
If the upper back is even slightly hunched, the shoulders are rounded or the head has
started to migrate forward, the upper body’s center of gravity begins to shift
forward. To adjust for this, the body will create the extra extension in the
low back as an attempt to maintain a more neutral center of gravity. Not only
will this put the extra joint strain on the spine, it will also create adaptive
tightening of the low back muscles to try and support this position.
If you are experiencing low back pain and tightness that does not seem to improve with
other conventional methods, consider improving your upper back, shoulder and
neck postural imbalances to help get better results.

Tips to Minimize Weight Gain Through the Holidays
It has become tolerated and even expected that people will gain
and inches through the holidays. Whether it is due to overeating,
sedentary lifestyle or even holiday stress, most people will add
the scale during the month of December. Here are a few tips to
those pounds off.
1. Stay Active – Make a special effort to schedule more time or
more physical activities to your calendar during the holidays.
2. Stay Hydrated – The humidity decreases in the winter months
requiring you to drink more water to stay hydrated. It also helps
drink more water before parties and meals as you will be less
to eat as much if you fill your tummy with water.
3. Get plenty of rest – This year more than ever, rest is
keeping your body healthy. Depriving your body from sleep has
also been linked to weight gain as we tend to be hungrier and eat
4. Manage your stress – Stress typically creates elevated levels
cortisol which leads to increased hunger, elevated cravings, and
poor food choice.
5. Practice Mindful Eating – Try your best to prepare your meals
portions and not have foods and snacks sitting out around during
the holidays, making it easy to routinely graze on less-healthy
options. If you are going to have a high calorie meal, keep it to
that meal and don’t allow yourself to throw out all of your healthy
eating habits and binge
eat all day or all weekend.

The wonders of Vitamin D and is it a
Vitamin or a Hormone?
A vitamin is an
essential nutrient that our bodies must obtain from food. This is not truly the
case with vitamin D as our bodies can manufacture it and convert
it into a more useful form in the presence
Here is how vitamin
D plays important roles in various
systems throughout the body:
Musculo-Skeletal - regulates calcium levels which
is necessary for
strong bones and proper muscle function
Immune system - has been
shown to strengthen the immune system
and improve autoimmune diseases
Metabolism - low
levels have been
shown to affect
insulin levels and
has been correlated with obesity
Cardiovascular system - can help prevent blood clots, strengthen heart muscles and
support the linings of blood vessels
Psychological/Emotional - helps regulate
mood and has been shown
to prevent anxiety and depression
