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.
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 only a few diets that I recommend because it works to sustain health and that is the
"The Mediterranean Diet" and "The Paleo Diet"

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

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.
