    On a whole, Americans eat a lot more sugar than is healthy. It doesn’t help that sugar comes disguised in all sorts of ingredients on nutrition labels. Agave Nectar, Barley Malt Syrup, Corn sweetener, Corn syrup, or corn syrup solids, Dehydrated Cane Juice, Dextrin, Dextrose, Fructose – the list goes on and on. All of the added sugar found in processed foods in our daily diets wreak havoc on our bodies – especially our bones.

    Consistent, excess sugar in our diets leads to the formation of Advanced Glycation End products (AGEs), which contribute to degenerative eye conditions and other tissue damage, especially in diabetics. AGEs also weaken and can eventually damage collagen. This then has the potential to lead to arthritis and bone deterioration. Excess sugar also contributes to calcium depletion and increased cortisol levels, both of which are detrimental to bone health, and are leading causes of osteoporosis.

    Protect your bone health, and do your best to avoid any added sugars. When craving something sweet, try reaching for fruits or veggies, which have natural sugar, as well as the necessary amount of fiber to prevent a glucose spike.

    We all know walking is good for us. Between desk jobs, long commutes, and marathon TV binges, many Americans lead sedentary lifestyles, so it’s especially important to get up and move around. 20 minutes of walking a day can lead to a healthier weight, decrease your chance of heart disease or diabetes, and improve your overall happiness. But did you know that walking can have a great effect on your spine health?

    Walking is considered a low-impact exercise, meaning it puts less strain on the body, and even helps to decrease pain. Walking has been proven especially useful for people with lower back pain because it lessens inflammation and pain without aggravating the structure of the lower back. While walking is a great form of exercise for nearly everyone, it is important to discuss any new exercise regimen with your chiropractor, and to never attempt any form of exercise that is painful.

    When you set up your Chiropractor appointment, you are committing yourself to long-term healthy practices and a healthier lifestyle. Not only will your Chiropractor be able to correct subluxations and reduce pain while you’re in the office, they will give you an exercise and nutrition program to follow in between visits. To achieve real success and improvement in your spinal health, it is imperative that you follow through with your chiropractor’s program.

    Going to a chiropractor is like going to a personal trainer or a nutritionist. They can only do so much – you must put the real day-to-day work in. To see real results, you must follow through, and stick with program at home. If you do not complete the exercises given to you by your chiropractor, every visit will be one step forward and one step back in the road towards improving your spinal health. In order to complete treatment and obtain optimal spinal health, you must put in daily effort at home.

    Many people think Chiropractors can only be used for back or neck pain. But the truth is, your chiropractor has the skills and experience to be your general physician. Were you aware that your Chiropractor is an expert in nutrition? The idea behind chiropractic is that our bodies, when taken care of, have the ability to heal themselves, without the use of pharmaceuticals or addictive drugs. Part of proper care includes proper nutrition. 

    Nutrition plays an important role in the delicate balance of human health. When we lack proper nutrition, we are more likely to develop a weakened immune system, setting us up for illness. Illness exposes us to discomfort, lost work, and in some cases, stress or depression. Stress and depression have the ability to make us more susceptible to illness or physical injury. Nutrition is ultimately an important baseline for overall health.

    If you ever have any nutrition related questions, or decide that you need a total diet overhaul, contact your chiropractor. Your chiropractor can set up a customized nutrition and exercise plan that keeps your body, your lifestyle, and goals in mind.

    in Latest News

    Back pain is one of the most common ailments in America – up to 80% of us suffer from back pain at some point in our lives. That’s a lot of pain, discomfort, missed work and missed fun. In fact, missed work due to back pain costs our economy billions of dollars every year, and we end up spending an extra $50 million trying to treat it. So what is the most effective, efficient treatment for back pain?

     

    The answer is chiropractic care. Contrary to popular belief, 9 out of 10 patients suffering form back pain do not require any kind of surgical procedure, and medications simply mask the symptoms without treating the underlying cause of pain. Back pain is almost always a structural, physical problem. Chiropractic treats it that way. We realign your entire body and help you strengthen muscles that have weakened over time. Chiropractic treats the underlying, physical misalignment causing your pain, without the use of drugs or surgery.

    Here’s the bottom line: your best bet in fighting seasonal illnesses like the cold or flu is prevention. The viruses that cause these sicknesses can knock you out for over a week, making you miss important events like work or school, and make you feel terrible. But the truth is – these viruses are always in the air and on the surfaces around us – but they only make us sick is when our immune system isn’t functioning at its peak. So what factors weaken our immune system, and how can we prevent them?

     

    Poor nutrition, a lack of essential vitamins and minerals, a sedentary lifestyle, stress, and depression all contribute to a weakened immune system, and put us at risk for seasonal illnesses. Your chiropractor can put you on the path to correct all of these bad habits and emotional ailments. We can discuss an easy, affordable nutrition plan, develop exercises specific for your health and physical goals, and realign your entire body for easy, pain-free functioning.

    Green Tea Health Benefits

    Posted by Mission Chiro

    The benefits of drinking green tea have been understood for centuries, since it was first discovered in China approximately 4700 years ago. According to legend, the Chinese Emperor Shen Nong, who was an herbalist as well, discovered tea when the leaves from twigs that were being used for a fire flew up and landed in a pot of boiling water. Shen Nong, an avid researcher, extensively tested the concoction and found tea to be the antidote to more than 70 different poisonous herbs. In addition, he believed it was useful for treating other ailments such as bladder problems, tumors, lethargy and abscesses.

    As Japan and China top the list of countries with the highest life expectancy (82.6 and 82.2 years, respectively), and are also the highest in green tea consumption, there may be some truth to the beverage’s benefits. Both green and black tea come from the leaves of the same plant (Camellia sinensis), however, green tea is very minimally processed, while black tea is made through a fermenting of the leaves. Due to the minimal processing involved, green tea retains more of the healthy antioxidant polyphenols. The antioxidants particular to tea are called catechins, which are thought to be the main source of green tea’s health benefits.

    According to an article in Harvard Women’s Health Watch, catechins are better at stopping oxidative damage to cells from free radicals than both vitamin C and vitamin E, and several studies have found a link between the consumption of green tea and a reduced rate of cancer and heart disease. It has been found to be particularly effective against cancer of the bladder, breast, ovary, pancreas, lung, colon, prostate, skin and esophagus. In addition, green tea has been found to lower LDL (bad) cholesterol, raise HDL (good) cholesterol and improve the function of the arteries.

    Drinking green tea has also been shown to have a protective effect against stroke, osteoporosis, periodontal disease, and reduces the incidence of bacterial and viral infections. It helps control blood sugar levels, reducing your chance of contracting diabetes, and reduces the inflammation associated with Inflammatory Bowel Disease. It also helps to boost metabolism, helping to burn fat.

    A study in the European Journal of Clinical Nutrition in 2006 reported that drinking green tea was even more beneficial than drinking water, as the tea provides not only hydration on a level with that of water, but it also contains healthy polyphenols. Another 2006 study in the Journal of the American Medical Association found that drinking green tea reduces the risk of death from all causes, which is not the case with black tea. Drinking an average of three cups of green tea per day (as they do in Japan and China) confers the greatest amount of health benefits, providing you with 240-320 mg of polyphenols.

    Using one teaspoon per 5 oz. cup, pour water that is hot, but less than boiling, over the leaves and let it steep for two to three minutes. Using water that is too hot will make the tea taste bitter and astringent. The thousands of studies on the positive effects of drinking green tea amount to a substantial body of literature in favor of giving it a try.

    Great Source for Reliable Information on Nutritional Supplements

    Have you ever found yourself tuning out information about nutritional supplements because it all seems confusing and contradictory? If yes, you are not alone. One headline says 'get more X' the next headline says 'be careful about too much X' and another says 'X supplementation not necessary at all'. Headlines are meant to sell newspaper and magazines. They report on what's new not necessarily what is backed by the most evidence. And, the stories are often selected based on findings that are contrarian or against conventional wisdom. After all, who is going to buy a magazine with the headline, "No change in guidelines – eating more plant-based foods is still good for you." 

    Consumers really need a reliable source of evidence-based recommendations for nutritional supplements. Since these are not regulated by the FDA, there isn't a government run website that you can count on to be unbiased. There are several private companies, non-profits and even individuals that claim to offer comprehensive unbiased information on nutritional supplements, but who has the time to sift through all of these to figure out whose information is the best?

    At the risk of offending a number of other great sources, this article is a plug for the Linus Pauling Micronutrient Information Center at Oregon State University at http://lpi.oregonstate.edu/infocenter. Chances are this is a source you've never heard of or looked at, but you should. 

    When you visit the website, you'll have a chance to subscribe to the newsletter near the top of the page. Do it. This isn't another email newsletter but rather a printed, bound newsletter sent to your house containing all of the Institute's latest research.

    The folks at OSU are doing excellent work to bring us all trustworthy, evidence based recommendations on the tens of thousands of nutrients in our foods. Take some time to look at their website, bookmark it and share it with others. If there are concepts or terms you don't understand, feel free to ask us during your next appointment or send us an email.

    Fall Prevention in Older Adults

    Posted by Mission Chiro

    Falling is never good at any age, but is a particularly hazardous event for the elderly, who are not able to reduce the impact of a fall as well as those of younger ages. Most falls occur in women, and the risk increases with age. Fully two thirds of those who experience a fall will do so again within the following six months. So what can older adults do to help prevent a fall in the first place? The greatest contributors to falls in older adults are osteoporosis, reduced physical activity, impaired vision and environmental hazards.

    Osteoporosis is a condition in which the bones become increasingly more brittle and full of holes, and is more prevalent in women after menopause. The drop in hormones such as estrogen that occurs at this time contributes to bone loss, as well as a deficiency in vitamin D and calcium. And as physical activity also commonly begins to drop off as we age, bones are likely to become more brittle from the lack of weight-bearing exercise.

    To help reduce the progress of bone loss, be sure to get enough calcium and magnesium in your diet. Most people usually get enough calcium, but are not aware that they must also consume a sufficient amount of magnesium for the calcium to be absorbed into their bones. What often happens is that someone will go overboard taking calcium supplements, and as there is not sufficient magnesium for its absorption, the calcium will build up in the person’s soft tissues instead of their bones, contributing to arthritis. You should aim for a ratio of calcium to magnesium of at least 2:1 in order to maximize bone absorption.

    Increasing physical activity will also help to slow bone loss. It doesn't have to be anything particularly strenuous, but even just walking or swimming on a daily basis can have a positive effect on bone density. If you are able to carry some light weights with you while walking, that will add to your bone health. And if you can take that walk in the sun you will also increase your levels of vitamin D.

    Vision problems common in older age, such as cataracts and glaucoma can alter depth perception and reduce peripheral vision and sharpness of sight, which can lead to a fall. Vision should be checked regularly so these things can be treated early. And if vision is a problem, place brightly colored or glow-in-the-dark strips where there are steps in the house so they can be seen better. This also goes for things like grab bars and other physical aids that may be difficult to discern in low light.

    Lastly, one third of all falls among the elderly occur due to an environmental cause in the home. The most common cause is tripping over an object on the floor. Someone should do a walkthrough of the home to identify and remove possible tripping hazards. Make sure all pathways are free of clutter and all rugs secured. Be sure there is adequate lighting in all areas, with switches that are easily reached or lamps that are touch activated.

    Taking these steps can reduce your risk of a fall and help ensure many more years of living an active, healthy life.

    Exercises for Sciatica Pain Relief

    Posted by Mission Chiro

    in Latest News

    Sciatica (or sciatic neuritis) is a set of symptoms arising from the compression or irritation of the sciatic nerves or nerve roots. It is experienced as pain in the lower back and buttocks, and sometimes in the legs and feet, and may be accompanied by tingling sensations or numbness, muscle weakness and restricted leg movement. The pain may be felt to "travel" down the leg, and is commonly felt only on one side of the body.

    If you suffer from sciatica, it is important to remember the term "set of symptoms." This means that it is a description of the effects, rather than a diagnosis or exact description of what causes them. Sciatica can be caused by several different conditions. For this reason it is important to see your chiropractor to get an accurate diagnosis to determine the actual cause of the symptoms in your case. Any treatment regime or set of prescribed exercises will depend on the exact nature of this diagnosis, and cannot be generalized.

    Following an examination, your chiropractor may recommend a series of chiropractic manipulations to treat the underlying structural cause of the condition, but will also prescribe a series of exercises to relieve the pain by stretching tight muscles that may be contributing to it by maintaining pressure on the sciatic nerves. Exercise is often felt by the sciatica sufferer to be counter-intuitive, because the pain can be so severe that one is tempted to take painkillers and go to bed and rest until it subsides. But in reality one of the best forms of self-treatment is exercise, either in the form of walking or gentle stretching movements. The exercise will strengthen the muscle groups that support your lower spine and back, stimulate blood flow to the area to promote healing, and cause the production of endorphins, which are natural painkillers.

    Exercises to relieve the symptoms of sciatica may vary, depending on the specific cause of the condition, but a few general observations can be made about them. Most sets of sciatica exercises involve strengthening the abdominal muscles, which better support the spine and keep it properly aligned when they are strong. Sciatica exercises also often include gentle stretching of the hamstring muscles. Once the initial sciatica pain has been treated via chiropractic manipulation or other means, walking is often a great form of self-treatment, because it contributes not only to healing by promoting blood flow but also strengthens the muscles that support the lower back.

    In some cases, "press ups" (lying on your stomach and pressing your upper body up with your arms, similar to the chataranga or "up dog" pose in yoga) can be beneficial. "Curl ups" (lying on your back with your knees bent and gently curling the upper body up and holding the position for a few seconds) can also strengthen the abdominal muscles, and are easier than traditional "sit ups." Leg raises (lying on your back and gently lifting first one leg and then the other and holding it for a few seconds) can also be effective. If your sciatic pain is severe, you may find these and other exercises easier to perform in water.

    With all sets of exercises used to treat the symptoms of sciatica and relive its pain, there are three things to remember. First, as mentioned above, don't start a generic set of these exercises without consulting a professional to determine the exact cause of your symptoms. Second, "easy does it." Don't strain or try to attain or hold any position that is uncomfortable for you. And third, be consistent; the benefits of exercise for sciatic pain depend on doing them regularly.

    Show your care for nature at the beach clean-up headed by the San Diego Coastkeeper on Saturday, January 12, 2013 at the Oceanside Pier in Oceanside, California from 9:00 am to 11:00 am. Volunteers will meet at the parking lot near the lifeguard tower of the Buccaneer Beach.

    With the organizer’s discovery of the increased volume (by piece) of garbage being left behind by beach goers after a similar drive done in 2012, the said activity aims to minimize if not completely eliminate the presence of trash near the beach especially non-biodegradable pollutants like cigarettes, styrofoam fragments, and plastics.

    The San Diego Coastkeepers hosted beach clean-ups before, with the ones done in 2007 and 2012 having a record of the most numbers of participants.

    For further details including information about other upcoming events within the local area, interested parties may visit http://www.sdcoastkeeper.org or http://visitoceanside.org.
