DID YOU KNOW THAT CHIROPRACTIC CAN PROLONG THE LIFE OF YOUR SPINE?
When a vertebra in your spine becomes misaligned, it tends to become fixated in this position and does not flex, extend, and rotate as it normally should. This fixation causes the other vertebrae above and below to make up for this lost motion by moving beyond their normal limits of motion, thus stressing ligaments, discs, and other soft tissues. After time these over stressed vertebrae and their components begin to break down. A chiropractic adjustment can free up the “stuck” vertebra, allowing it to move properly, and in turn take the excess workload away from the vertebrae surrounding it. If you are having pain, stiffness, or reduced range of motion don’t wait to get it taken care of. Chiropractic is an inexpensive, safe, and highly effective means of treatment.
IF YOU EAT PROCESSED MEATS PLEASE READ BELOW.
Processed meats are often laden with nitrite or nitrate based preservatives. These preservatives are converted to highly carcinogenic (cancer causing) compounds called nitrosamines when heated, or when placed into highly acidic environments such as the stomach. Nitrosamines are a contributor to a wide array of cancers. For those that just can’t stay away from bacon or sliced deli meat, be sure to take a vitamin C supplement along with your meal. Vitamin C actually inhibits much of the formation of nitrosamines. It is still best to avoid these foods however. Best Wishes!
