Today's Chiropractic's message
Your body is the world's greatest drugstore. It makes every chemical you need to live a long and healthy life.
Over-the-counter and prescription drugs often have side effects that can be deadly. They are never what your body really needs.
In addition, drugs usually suppress acute symptoms (fever, inflammation, rash, cough, aches and others), which prevents your body from performing its cleansing and healing functions. Suppression of acute symptoms has been shown to cause chronic health problems.
Chiropractic's purpose is to help your body function as it is meant to function - permitting it to be balanced so it may work at its peak and manufacture its own drugs. If your spine is unhealthy, your ability to function optimally and produce your own balance of natural chemicals will be impaired.
Meanwhile, remember to:
Eat, Move, and think Well!!
There is one diet that I only recommend because it works to sustain health and that is a

Natural Flu Treatment
There are a number of supplements that can be beneficial for colds and influenza, but I believe they should be used only as an adjunct to other healthy dietary and lifestyle measures.
(Disclaimer: any serious flu illness, see your primary medical doctor immediately)
Vitamin C: A very potent antioxidant; use a natural form such as acerola, which contains associated micronutrients. 500mg 3x/day
Green Tea made: Drink it hot and often for combating a cold or flu. It causes you to sweat, which is helpful for eradicating a virus from your system.
Oregano Oil: The higher the carvacrol concentration, the more effective it is. Carvacrol is the most active antimicrobial agent in oregano oil. 4 drops 3x/day
Medicinal mushrooms, combo such as shiitake, reishi, maitake. 2x/day
Chicken, Thai, Pho soup, 2x/day
honey, 1 tbls 2x/day
vitamin D, 5000 IU 1x/day
garlic capsules, one 2x/day
zinc, 30-60 mg 2x/day
vegetable juice, 1 glass 2x/day
apple cider vinegar, 1 tbls. 2x/day
coconut oil, 1 tbls. 2x/day
NAC (n-acetyl-l-cysteine) 600mg 2x/day
1/2 cup organic lemon juice, 3 cups of pineapple juice
1 organic garlic cloves crushed, 2 tbsps Manuka Honey,
1/2 tsp organic turmeric, 2 tbsps grated organic ginger,
1/2 tsp organic cayenne pepper, ½ tsp organic cinnamon,
Blend all ingredients, store in glass container,
How to take it: Drink 1 cup 3 to 4 times daily to fight off flu and cold or when feeling under the weather. Take until symptoms are gone.
Plastics to Avoid
#3 Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC) commonly contains di-2-ehtylhexyl phthalate (DEHP), an endocrine disruptor and probable human carcinogen, as a softener.
#6 Polystyrene (PS) may leach styrene, a possible endocrine disruptor and human carcinogen, into water and food.
#7 Polycarbonate contains the hormone disruptor bisphenol-A, which can leach out as bottles age, are heated or exposed to acidic solutions. Unfortunately, #7 is used in most baby bottles and five-gallon water jugs and in many reusable sports bottles.
Tips for Use :
*Sniff and Taste: If there's a hint of plastic in your water, don't drink it.
*Keep bottled water away from heat, which promotes leaching of chemicals.
*Use bottled water quickly, as chemicals may migrate from plastic during storage. Ask retailers how long water has been on their shelves, and don't buy if it's been months.
*Do not reuse bottles intended for single use. Reused water bottles also make good breeding grounds for bacteria.
*Choose rigid, reusable containers or, for hot/acidic liquids, thermoses with stainless steel or ceramic interiors.

Nautral Treatment for GERD
Research has shown that three natural ingredients have remarkable effectiveness in relieving occasional heartburn and acid indigestion, while helping soothe the mucosal lining of the stomach and gastrointestinal tract. The results are fast, the benefits long lasting, and most importantly, you'll experience no side effects whatsoever!
Acid Relief Solution #1
You might be familiar with licorice as a sweet flavoring agent, but licorice also has a long history of use as a soother of digestive discomfort. And there's a special preparation of licorice called deglycyrrhizinated licorice, or DGL for short that is extremely effective at this.
Acid Relief Solution #2
Slippery elm (Ulmas fulva) is an herb famous for its soothing properties. As the name implies, extracts of the bark of the slippery elm tree are often "slippery" due to the fact that its mucilage, found in the inner bark, produces copious amounts of compounds called polysaccharides. These compounds are very similar in nature to the makeup of the mucus in your stomach that protects it from stomach acid and can augment your body's own mucus production, helping to protect the lining of the esophagus, stomach and intestines.
Acid Relief Solution #3
Most people are familiar with the healing properties of aloe vera. If you split open a fresh aloe leaf, you will see the thick, mucus-like gel contained inside. Perhaps you may have applied this gel to irritated skin as a soothing agent. Well, like slippery elm, aloe is also rich in the polysaccharides that help to restore the cells in your esophagus and digestive tract.
