Wow, it is so hard to believe this is the fourth issue of In Community Magazine that I am writing right now! A whole year has come and went and it seems like yesterday that I decided to reach out to the community to educate them about how All Kare Chiropractic and Laser Clinic is helping people just like them, to live healthier, happier lives! We do this by working on improving people’s lives, not just their Pain! We address the issues that are causing them to have pain, gain weight, be exhausted, and lose the joy of life! Actually, the way I started this article is a stark reminder of the fast paced life that we now live as Americans! Research shows that the average American family no longer sits at the dinner table for the evening meal, that the average family eats meals on the run (fast food restaurants), and skips meals like breakfast or lunch because “We just don’t have time,” or so people think. Multiple studies have shown that all these poor choices are causing the average American family to eat more calories, and poorer quality foods (highly processed foods, high in sugar, corn syrup, and fat). Other important things we are not doing- we are skipping needed exercise and physical play time with our families. A recent study from the National Survey of Children’s Health showed that 2 out of every 3 adolescents in America are living a low level of physical activity, and that it was more common for the parents of those children to also not exercise and participate in sports. This finding is worrisome because teens are likely to maintain similar levels of physical activity into adulthood, and because physical inactivity is associated with a host of negative health outcomes, including cardiovascular disease, diabetes and obesity, as well as low self-esteem. We need to slow down, de-stress, learn to take time for ourselves and for our families! We need to learn to make better choices when it comes to eating, exercising, stretching, and family activities! On the surface that sounds self-evident! But you may be surprised how often my patients come in complaining of one problem or another. Often it is neck pain, low back pain, weight gain, and fatigue. They don’t know why they are feeling the way they are. Often there has been no accident, no incident even! Just a slow steady progression of pain, or weigh gain, or fatigue, or all the above! Now, you may remember I wrote in my first article that research shows that 70 percent of the conditions that affect us as humans relates back to lifestyle. That means we have a huge amount of control over the things that have been robbing us of quality of life! It also gives hope to those dealing with life threatening conditions like heart disease, diabetes, stomach and liver conditions. Through better lifestyle choices (eating better, less drinking, not smoking, more exercise), we can fight these conditions with our own actions not just the medicine! At All Kare Chiropractic and Laser Clinic we put together treatment plans for improving not only the health of a person, but also improving well being and quality of life of our patients. We do this by first taking the time to Listen to the patient and find out what is really bothering

them about their life! We then do a thorough exam, and come up with a plan to address the patient’s problems. We have many tools at our disposal. I have been listed in America’s Top Chiropractors which is put out by the Consumers Research Council of America 6 of the last 8 years for wellness and rehabilitation care! We use chiropractic adjustments, massage, exercise and stretching, physical therapy modalities, as well as nutritional, lifestyle and weight loss counseling and coaching to treat our patient’s conditions that are causing them pain, weight gain, and fatigue. These back to natural approaches are bringing about Life changing results in our patients by treating their current conditions and helping to avoid future disease processes. Finally, I have to remind everyone about the phenomenal results we are getting with the Zerona Lipo Laser. For those of you that are looking to jump start your weight loss goals, we cannot only help, we can make the changes come faster. Our average patient is losing 6 to 8 inches off their toughest target areas (the stomach, hips and thighs) in just 4 weeks’ time! This helps people feel better about themselves, motives them to continue with the lifestyle changes that will bring about a better quality of life for the rest of their lives!
