Tis the season


If you have been to a store lately you know the holiday season starts as soon as you shut the light off for trick or treating.   No matter your denomination or beliefs, we can all agree that the holidays are the most stressful time of the year.  These stresses are caused by our normal day to day and then add planning, decorating, choosing the perfect gift, and wanted or unwanted visitors.  Then there’s the parties, don’t get me started on the parties-or parking at the mall. There’s no time left for anything; and then, fruitcake.

These stresses can and will affect your health.  I talk all the time about stress causing inflammation and that inflammation causes a number of issues depending on your genetic makeup and your daily habits.  What I teach my patients every day is to eat well, move well, and be well.

Eat well– Try to eat good healthy non processed foods.  Plan your total week.  Wendy and I live by the 80- 20 rule.  80% of the time eats good healthy food and 20% eat what you want.  So if you are attending a party eat whatever you want but the day before and after eat smart.

Move well- Exercise!  Exercise is a great way to offset stress and just make you feel great.  Do what you can do; even if it’s a walk for 20 min 3 times a week.  Remember we cannot all run a marathon.  Remember that regular chiropractic adjustments will cause your joints to function properly and in turn your body will function at its peak.

Be Well- The normal day to day stress can cause all kinds of issues and holiday stress can increase these results exponentially.  We can’t choose our genetic makeup but we can choose the factors that increase disease, pain, and injury.  Health is not an event it’s an ongoing process and it’s never too late to start.

Wishing you a Happy Holiday season and Healthy New Year.
