When most people think of chiropractic treatment, they usually think of adjusting the joints to reduce pain – they don’t usually think of nutrition counseling and probably haven’t even heard of an anti- inflammation diet. However, diet is such a powerful component of our health and the pain we feel, that we discuss an anti-inflammation diet with over 90% of our patients. Why worry about inflammation? Classic signs of inflammation include pain, swelling, heat, and redness. Think of a swollen thumb after you smack it with a hammer. It’s clear that your thumb is inflamed when... (Read More ...)

Fermented Foods For Preserving Yes, yes, the term – fermented foods – mostly conjures up visions of alcoholic beverages, both still and bubbly. That is true for our modern North American food culture.  However, it would not be true for most cultures around the world, both contemporary and historical. People have been fermenting foods since early in our human history. It was originally one of very few means of preserving foods from the hunt, the harvest, the kill when not all of it could be consumed at once and more would be needed later.

The Importance Of Vitamin D In the most recent survey  by Gallup Healthways Well-Being, the 50 states were ranked according to the health of its residents. Hawaii was again listed as number one in the nation. That’s no surprise as it is the true “Sunshine State.” Since we produce Vitamin D after adequate exposure to sunshine, Hawaii has all the advantage.  Vitamin D deficiency is a critical element in all major chronic diseases, as well as being a factor in even the common cold and influenza. Lack of sun = lack of Vitamin D Sadly, Ohio was the state ranked 5th from the bottom. The lack... (Read More ...)

The best defense is a good offense. We all know that’s how to play our favorite sport. Did you know it works for food too? What then is our offensive strategy in bread baking? Fermentation. Sour dough bread has been around for thousands of years. Before the aid of modern refrigeration and synthetic enzymes, bread baking always required Time. Time yields lots of beneficial bacteria (they multiply much faster than rabbits!) Bacteria do a lot of “pre-digesting” of true whole grains to make them much easier for us to digest them when consumed. What are we defending against with our offensive... (Read More ...)

We commonly see many patients confusing chiropractic adjusting and exercise therapy. Both can be very helpful for musculoskeletal conditions, and there are are similarities between the two. However, there are significant differences between the two, which helps explain why patients can respond differently to these types of care. Let’s see why: 1.

Is Raw Milk Bad For You?   Awareness is increasing among Stark County residents about the foods we put in our bodies and the health ramifications they present.  We live in a fast paced society and often sacrifice good wholesome nutrition for convenience.  More and more of the diseases and health problems plaguing Americans – and Stark County residents – are being traced to what we eat and what has been done to it before it gets to our kitchens and into our bodies.
