HANDS ON APPROACH TO FAMILY HEALTH CARE

W

hile Christy Fetzer, D.C. and Belinda Kummrow, D.C. might be new to the pages of Stride, neither is new to the Fargo-Moorhead community. Dr. Christy opened Fetzer Family Chiropractic in 2006 after graduating from Northwestern Health Sciences University. Prior to graduate school, she worked as a chiropractic assistant at Moorhead Chiropractic Clinic for seven years. “It was a great experience for me to see first-hand the healing that can take place when natural health care is a priority for a family,” says Fetzer. “It really solidified my decision to go to chiropractic school.” After working solo for 3 ½ years, Dr. Christy added Dr. Belinda 19

Kummrow to her practice. Dr. Belinda also has a history in Fargo-Moorhead, attending Concordia College before obtaining her chiropractic degree. In addition to treatment of adults, the care of children is second nature to the doctors and staff. Both Dr. Christy and Dr. Belinda have been certified by the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association (www. icpa4kids.org) which means that they have spent additional classroom and hands-on hours learning about the health care needs of children and pregnant women. “Women under chiropractic care throughout their pregnancies experience shorter labor and delivery times, and children who have had chiropractic care since birth typically

have fewer ear infections and issues with colic. Needless to say, we love taking care of moms and children,” says Kummrow. “We love taking care of dads and grandparents, too. There are no age limits at our clinic!” Stepping into Fetzer Family Chiropractic, patients will notice five treatment rooms and a state-of-the-art digital x-ray system with the capability to perform physical therapies such as ultrasound or electric muscle stimulation. But mostly, the doctors and staff hope patients notice the caring, compassionate, and family-oriented atmosphere. A new patient visit begins with a tour of the facility and continues with a thorough


practice and the staff of Fetzer Family Chiropractic would not want it any other way. “People realize that travel and sleeping on aunt Edna’s pull-out couch over the holidays put some extra stress on their neck,” laughs Kummrow. In addition, many people’s New Year’s resolutions are rooted in health, fitness, and nutritional goals, and clearly chiropractic and natural health care plays a role in all of those areas. “Before seeing Dr. Christy, I could hardly drive my car or walk for extended peri-

ods of time due to knee pain,” says office manager, Kim. “I came in as a patient and now I am on the other side of the desk. I never knew chiropractics would help with anything other than back or neck pain.” This is a common belief in our society today and Fetzer Family Chiropractic can help swing those beliefs in the other direction.

consultation and medical history, which both doctors believe is a prerequisite to developing an individualized treatment plan. The visit continues with a complete evaluation of the spinal joints and surrounding muscles. After evaluating the information from the history and exam, the doctors will recommend a course of action, which includes treatments in the office as well as at-home stretches and exercises. The transition to a new year can be a busy time in a chiropractic

Movement and exercise play a crucial role in brain functioning and development. Movement directly impacts hormones and chemicals that effect learning and emotions. Statistics show kids who exercise are more prepared to learn and perform better academically than sedentary children.

According to the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases 18 million people are affected by peanut allergies, but thanks to SunButter these people will finally be able to enjoy a great alternative to peanut butter. SunButter is made from sunflower seeds for people with peanut, tree-nut and many other food allergies. It is very rare to be allergic to sunflower since it does not fall within the top eight food allergies 49

that account for over 90% of all food allergies. The SunButter brand has seven retail products distributed to over 13,000 stores in the U.S. and Canada.

Here’s an activity based on tips from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. Place an X in the column that corresponds to your answer. Look at the items in the third column and set one or two items as goals. Many behavioral experts say that changing a habit takes at least three weeks. Check your progress along the way and celebrate your successes.

This Won’t Work For Me

I Already Do This

I Will Try This For 3 Weeks

Take two 15-minute walking breaks per day. Drink water before a meal. Choose fruit for dessert. Bring a healthful, low-calorie lunch to work. You’ll save money, too. Portion out your snack on a plate; don’t eat from the bag. Eat off smaller plates. You may eat less. Enjoy lentils; chickpeas; or kidney, pinto or black beans in soups or salads to add fiber to your diet. Keep a pair of comfortable walking or running shoes in your vehicle – and use them! Use fat-free or reduced-fat milk instead of whole milk. Keep a bowl of cut-up vegetables in the refrigerator for snacks. Try a new fitness activity such as snowshoeing or cross-country skiing. Share an entrée with a friend. Snack on fruits and vegetables.

s we begin a new year, I challenge my readers to take small steps toward better health. Remember that changing a nutrition or fitness behavior does not happen overnight. As with learning to walk, we need to practice the behavior, perhaps fall down a few times (not literally, I hope), but then pick ourselves up and try again.

Make half your grain choices whole grains. Julie Garden-Robinson Ph.D., R.D., L.R.D is an associate professor and food and nutrition specialist with the North Dakota State University Extension Service.

Have a green salad instead of fries. Order a to-go bag with your entrée; eat half. Try a new fruit or vegetable (ever had jicama, plantain, bok choy, starfruit or papaya?) 54

Food to warm you up! Try these to ease the weather!

Hot Oatmeal

Oatmeal contains beta-glucan, a type of fiber proven to help lower high cholesterol levels. Maintaining lower cholesterol levels helps reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease and stroke. Beta-glucan has also been shown to enhance the immune system’s response to bacterial infection.

It’s January. It’s Fargo. It’s COLD! But just because the average high temperature outdoors tops out around 18° F doesn’t mean you have to freeze too. Here are a few healthy food suggestions to keep your internal furnace cooking.

Chicken noodle soup

Chicken is protein-rich and a great source of amino acids needed to build muscle and body tissues. Chicken noodle soup recipes usually call for carrots which are high in vitamin A and is also beneficial to eye health. Plus, if you’re feeling a bit under the weather, chicken soup helps reduce nasal inflammation. 61

Green Tea

Nutrition

Of all teas, green tea contains the highest concentration of beneficial phytonutrients – nutrients derived from plants and associated with positive heath effects. Studies have shown green tea has the potential to help fight cancer and heart disease and prevent diabetes and stroke.

Cauliflower and Broccoli

Both are excellent sources of vitamin C and calcium and contain cancer fighting nutrients. Also, broccoli and cauliflower are thermogenic foods, meaning they kick your metabolism into high gear and generate body heat, thus warming you up.
