Here at Magnolia Chiropractic we do our absolute best to find the source of the pain and then treat it with all natural therapeutic techniques. One therapeutic technique we use is called Cold Laser. How does it work? The laser beams painlessly penetrate the skin, healing energy is then issued into the tissue, which in turn supports our body’s natural method of healing itself.

Did you know:

  • When you have a chipped windshield, most insurance companies will waive the deductible and will pay the full price for the repair.
  • Its’ Simple! In most cases auto glass repair shops will contact your insurance company directly. So all you need to do is provide them with the name of your insurance company and policy number when you take your car in.
  • Also! The majority of insurance companies will not hold you accountable for the chip, so having the repair done will most likely not affect your premium.

Why you should have the repair done:

  • Your windshield provides 30% of your vehicles fundamental structure. In the instance of an accident your windshield helps deploy the airbag, and prevents you from being thrown from the vehicle. If your windshield has been weakened by a chip or crack you are putting yourself and your passengers at risk.
  • Also! Having your windshield repaired is far less expensive than having the whole thing replaced!

Colder, shorter days mean less time outside in the sun, causing a spike in vitamin D deficiencies. Many health care professionals believe that the rise in colds and flu during the winter is due, not to the cool weather, but the lack vitamin D. As a supporter of so many health functions, it would be easier to name the things that aren’t helped by vitamin D.Image

We know that vitamin D is important for bone health and for supporting a healthy immune system. Vitamin D also has remarkable benefits for heart health, increasing flexibility of arteries and improving blood flow. The American Journal of Hypertension published a study showing that people with low vitamin D levels had a greater chance of having high blood pressure. In addition, people who maintain good vitamin D levels have a sharper memory and experience a slower aging process, beginning at a cellular level.

Just be sure you take the more active vitamin D3 form, rather than vitamin D2, which is often used in supplements.

Got (Organic) Milk?

All mammals get nutritious milk from their mothers when they’re born. Humans grow up and swap nutrient-rich breast milk for cow’s milk.  As growing children, we are encouraged to drink our milk for the calcium, with the hopes of building strong bones and later preventing osteoporosis. Our life long devotion to milk can be problematic to our health because milk contains bacteria, antibiotics, and pesticides. “A 1988 FDA survey of milk samples from grocery stores in 10 cities found that 73% of the samples contained pesticide residues.” Environmental Contamination and Toxicology, 1991; 47got organic milk?

A high percentage of cows are infected with viruses, bacteria and other harmful toxins, which can make for unhealthy milk. Cows are commonly injected with harmful growth hormones to stimulate milk production, and elevated amounts of these have been associated with cancer in humans. We already eat the meat that comes from these animals, so by drinking their milk, we’re getting a double dose of these potentially harmful toxins.

The protein that milk provides has been shown to inhibit calcium absorption and has actually been shown to be hard to digest. Milk is also mucus producing and a common link to childhood allergies, sinus infections/congestion, skin problems, ear infections, diabetes, worsening arthritis symptoms and heart disease. As a milk substitute, I like organic rice or almond milk.

It’s true- we do need calcium. What are some other ways to get it? Try increasing your intake of high quality calcium-rich foods, like leafy green vegetables (kale, collard greens, broccoli) or add mackerel, sardines, navy beans, hazelnut and sesame seeds to your diet. Get sunshine because it gives you vitamin D, which aids in absorbing calcium. Try decreasing foods that block calcium absorption, like soda.

The bottom line when it comes to milk‒ even if you have to pay more, it’ll be worth it for both you and your family in the long run to go organic. Milk may not be as crucial to our health or strong bones as a balanced diet of good quality, chemical-free food.
