 Cruciferous vegetables are veggies like broccoli, Brussels sprouts, Kale, cauliflower, etc. they are a class of sulphur-bearing veggies also known as brassicas & contain nutrients that cleanse your liver, fight cancer & of course, provide great fiber for the GI tract. If you don't like to eat them, ask me about a whole food-sourced supplement to take instead! 

Foot problems? This is the time of year we see the most foot issues. #1 cause? Flip flops & going barefoot. The combination of no arch support & unstable footing while doing physical exertion gets men & women alike. The small intrinsic muscles of the foot get strained or worse, the ligaments can get sprained. With switching back to a supportive running shoe & adjusting the misaligned foot, ankle &/or knee, with a little time, most people are back in action in a week or two. 

"EVERY TIME I BREATHE, IT HURTS!" I had a patient a few years back who had been diagnosed with everything from a heart attack to anxiety & prescribed meds all across the board. After several years of chest pain with each breath, a friend recommended he get to a chiropractor. After a few rib & spinal adjustments, he could breathe without pain. After a month of adjusting, there was no sign of sign of it at all. Rib misalignments can be very painful and misleading. Get yours checked today! 

"I'M TOO YOUNG TO BE CRIPPLED!" I had a 32 yr old patient who came in with severe knee pain in both knees. He had already been given 2 kinds of chemical injections, pain killers, muscle relaxers & antiinflammatories over 3 years. In analyzing him, we found significant pelvic & low back misalignment & only a few knee issues. In 2 months of adjusting, he was out of pain & training for a marathon. Don't accept your pain...fight back! 

 TRUTH & TRAGEDY- Healthy human bone is 4 times stronger than concrete. A block the size of a matchbox can support 9 tons. Many people have a diet so low in protein, calcium, other minerals & vitamins that spontaneous hip fractures are a leading cause of hospital visits. The sooner you change your diet &/or add supplements in, the less likely you are to get osteoporosis.
