Health Challenge Day 4: No Added Sugar

Health Challenge Day 4:  No Added Sugar

Health Challenge Day 4: No Added Sugar

Everyone feeling limber from your spinal mobility? Now imagine if you did that every day! You would be a new person.

For Day 4 we are moving in the the nutrition side of our challenge with… No added sugar.

What counts as added sugar? Anything where the sugar doesn’t come naturally with the food. So fruit is approved, however adding sugar or honey to your coffee is not.

Be sure to check out your nutrition labels. You might find yourself surprised by how much sugar is in seemingly healthy items you eat every day. People are often surprised by how much sugar is in salad dressings, smoothies and other pre-made “health drinks”, bread, cereal, milk, yogurt, and even supplements. If you find your supplements have added sugar, let us know and we can recommend some higher quality options for you.

For Day 2 we are moving inward: Meditate for 5 Minutes.

Feel free to meditate using any technique you like, but here’s a basic meditation: Sit up tall with your spine straight, either in a chair or on the floor. You could also do a walking meditation if sitting is troublesome for you. Close your eyes or just gaze softly downward. Breathe slowly and fully through your nose.

Platinum Health Challenge Day 1: Compliment 5 People

Tomorrow we kickoff our Platinum Health Challenge with a little positivity: Compliment 5 People.

Give a sincere compliment to 5 different people throughout the day. Positive words and thoughts tend to crowd out negative ones, making us and those around us less stressed, happier, and more productive. Plus, as you fight the instinct to notice the negative in others, it’s like draining a poison from your system. Your stress level will go down, and life will become a much happier, enjoyable journey.

It's All In The Hips

HipMobility.jpg

Do you sit all day every day? If you're like most people then you probably sit for an average of 11 hours per day.

Do you wonder why your back hurts? One of the causes can be improper tensioning your hips.

Since your hips are directly tied in to your lower back, there are a few mobility stretches that can help alleviate this issue and help you restore your flexibility.

Come join us for this hip mobility class to learn more. RSVP today, space is limited.

Meeting Your Goals

This Tuesday Sept 18th we are having a workshop to help you do just this: Top 5 Things to Know About Diet. I will be teaching about how nutrition and diets work, and offering suggestions to maximize success for everyone. I’ll cover the popular diets like Paleo, Keto, Mediterranean etc. and explain why some people do well and why most fail.

As summer winds down and the changing of seasons begins, it is time to look ahead to the holiday season. To be successful in your goals, it’s important to start preparing for the upcoming months before the holiday festivities are underway. The better prepared you are with strategies around diet and exercise, the more you can enjoy celebrating and feasting with friends and family.

This Tuesday Sept 18th we are having a workshop to help you do just this: Top 5 Things to Know About Diet. I will be teaching about how nutrition and diets work, and offering suggestions to maximize success for everyone. I’ll cover the popular diets like Paleo, Keto, Mediterranean etc. and explain why some people do well and why most fail.

To get you started on your goals now, let's bust a common nutritional myth: “Fasting makes you burn muscle…” Wrong! At least for most of us. Only once you have less than 4% body fat, then your body will start to break down muscle. But before that, your body accesses fat for energy. Burning muscle first would be like storing firewood (fat) to burn for the winter, and as soon as you need energy you throw your sofa in the fire. That makes no sense physiologically if you have enough fat (firewood) to use as energy first. 

Come hear more about this and other myths at our event on September 18th. RSVP to Kristen at info@platinumchiroca.com to save your spot.

Keto, Paleo, Fasting?

Paleo, Keto, Fasting... whats the difference, what is good, and what is not so good?

Dr. Karo will help you navigate your questions about each of these diets, and outline what you need to know to successfully adopt any nutrition program.

Our workshop for September will be held on Tuesday Sept 18th at the usual time of 6:30 pm.The topic: Top 5 Things you Need to Know about Diet.

If your social media looks anything like ours, it has been overrun with articles, recipes, success stories, and failures about the recent Keto, Paleo, and Fasting diet trends. It can be hard to discern what is good, what is bad, and what is right for you!

Dr. Karo will help you navigate your questions about each of these diets, and outline what you need to know to successfully adopt any dieting program.

Tips for Joint Health

Interested in learning more about keep your joints (and especially your spine) healthy? Come to our workshop on August 14... Move Your Spine. Dr. Karo will be leading a mobility class full strategies to maximize your Neuro-Strucutral chiropractic care for both the short and long term.

While there are several different types of joints in the body, they all require the same factors to stay healthy. Our joints are special because, unlike most other parts of our body, there is almost no blood supply feeding directly into them. This is relevant because blood is our body’s way of nourishing itself and removing waste. So for joints, this means there is no pump (the heart) to move blood in and out. Instead, joints rely on internal bio-mechanics (movement) to pump fluids and nutrients in and  out of each joint.

This is why the most important factors for joint health are proper alignment, daily full range movement, and nutrients. For each of us this means we need to make sure we move our joints everyday. One of the key benefits of chiropractic care is the resulting improvement in joint biomechanics of your spine, which creates healthier joint cells.

Interested in learning more about keep your joints (and especially your spine) healthy? Come to our workshop on August 14... Move Your Spine. Dr. Karo will be leading a mobility class full of strategies for how to manage the daily wear and tear on our joints and how to keep your joints and spine healthy over the long term.
