Health Tip of the Week: Keto Fights Cancer

51 % of men and 41% of women are expected to develop cancer in their life time. Major research is now showing that cancer is a metabolic disease.

Adding a metabolic and ketogenic diet to your care plan can dramatically increase your survival and remission statistics. This ketogenic diet even is showing tremendous success with incurable late stage cancers.

A ketogenic diet is a diet that is practically void of carbohydrates. The diet is filled with healthy fats, low carb fibrous vegetables and modest protein.

Eating these foods forces the body into ketosis (burns fat for energy) and basically starves cancer cells, shrinking them until they disappear. Google metabolic, ketogenic diet or better yet purchase the ground breaking book, "Cancer as a Metabolic Disease."

Thought for the Week

Plastic is a big problem for our environment. One piece of plastic could take up to 1000 years to breakdown and degrade. The ocean is filled with 165 million tons of plastic. Plastic fills our landfills. To help our planet's environment, every person needs to make a conscious effort to recycle their plastic. If you do not see recycle garbage containers, bring your plastic home.

The worst offenders are plastic eating utensils and plastic straws. These most always and up in the regular garbage when they should be in the recycle container. Consider using paper straws or no straws at all.  Reusable shopping bags are the way to go. If you have to use a plastic garbage bag, make sure they go back to the stores recycle container. Store your food in glass containers, not plastic.

Chiropractic Thought for the Week

As a practicing chiropractor with over 30 years of experience, it is easy to see the trends that occur in a chiropractor's office. In the early development of chiropractic (1900-1950), chiropractic's main focus was health care, removing nerve interference so that the body could properly function and express itself.

The next half of the century (with the inclusion of insurance coverage) saw chiropractic care move towards back and neck pain cases, even though the same chiropractic overall health benefits continued to be present. In the last 15 years, it seems that the emphasis (while still pain related) is shifting back towards more overall health and wellness.

More and more people are using the chiropractor like a gym membership, just for the health of it. And more and more pregnant women and small children are coming to the chiropractor for the natural drug-free health benefits. I like this trend!
