The Facts About Chiropractic Therapy

chiropractic-ca

Chiropractic treatment or therapy is a form of alternative medicine that is gaining popularity all over the world. It involves spinal adjustments and manipulations that are targeted at certain parts of the body in order to get rid of pain and give relief to the patient.

This form of therapy mainly focuses on the spinal region and the central nervous system. If there is any kind of imbalance in the system, it can affect a person’s health and lead to a lot of stress and illness. By using various massage techniques, chiropractors can help to bring back the balance and get rid of tension in that area.

What Happens During the Treatment

Pinched Nerves: When there is excess pressure applied on the nerves, the spine may go out of alignment and any sudden movement can cause the spine to twist and the nerves to get pinched. Stiffness in the back or neck is a common symptom of this problem. A professional will make tiny adjustments in order to release the nerves from this position and also help the spin to get back to its proper place.

Do you ever find yourself in a place where you’re sluggish and fatigued each day? Do you find yourself going to bed late, fuelling the fatigue? Are you finding that breaking the late-to-bed habit is an ongoing process? If so, have faith.

This was me for a long time. I then came to realise there were aspects of my life that were contributing to this low energy. In turn the reduced energy levels affected my confidence.

I began to recognize this as an opportunity for me to develop a way of taking myself from having virtually no energy to feeling motivated to move and do!

The personal development research I have completed over the years, and that I still continue on a daily basis, is revealing that certain aspects need to be in place for my energy levels – and hence my mood and confidence – to increase:

Sitting in the Office All Day: The Good, the Bad and the Ugly

The good: working eight hours-or even more-a day at the office can certainly fatten your wallet. Unfortunately, your waist can pack on some fat too. And that’s just the start of it. Sitting in the office all day can go from bad to ugly. Because let’s face it, the work isn’t that physical, right? Shooting a crumpled paper into a trash bin across the room doesn’t count as exercise. However, if you do make that shot-cool! Nice Steph Curry impersonation.

Seriously though, here’s what being sedentary in the office can do to you in the long run. First, the bad:

· Makes enzymes lazy. The body has fat breaking enzymes. When you sit around all day, the enzymes become couch potatoes and their fat-breaking efficiency drops by a whopping 90 percent.

· Calorie-burning goes slow-mo. It’s not just the enzymes which become sluggish. When your body senses you have limited activity, it goes into what can be described in the computer sense as ‘sleep mode.’ That’s great when you’re stuck at sea and have nothing to eat. Your body will oh so slowly burn fat to

How to Boost Your Energy Easily and Naturally

Despite all these healthy options, it is almost too easy to rely on sugar and caffeine to boost us when we are feeling down or lethargic. Instead, here are some healthier energy booster ways which will sustain better energy levels over the long term as well as in the short term. Furthermore, these will improve overall health rather than providing a quick fix which can be instead detrimental to health.

The first recommended natural energy booster is getting more sleep. This can seem a very difficult thing to do when we are excessively busy, but this does not stop it from being one of the healthiest habits that you can get into that will not only give you greater mental and physical energy, but will also help heal your tired body.

The body repairs and restores itself at night, and sleep is also necessary for our minds to process what we have been doing throughout the day. Therefore, a good, long sleep every night will leave us brighter, less stressed, and with our body performing at its best.

Of course, this can be difficult to achieve if we have very busy, demanding lives. For this reason, it is necessary to put

Can Drinking Too Much Water Kill You?

Nowadays, we hear people mention the 8×8 rule more and more often. We don’t only hear it on TV or at the hospital, but also in the park, at the supermarket or even at the gas station. Everyone seems to know that drinking eight 8-ounce glasses per day is a necessity if you want to stay healthy.

But is it really so? Do our bodies really need that certain quantity of water everyday? Or it’s just an invention whose purpose is to make us more careful to what we drink?

Well, scientists have finally come to a steadier conclusion: It doesn’t matter how much water you drink daily, as long as your body is properly hydrated and you don’t feel the need to drink more.

And after all, there’s no reason to question this, we all know that the human body is capable to make us aware of our deficiencies. Don’t we feel the need to eat when our stomach is empty? Or don’t we start shivering when we’re cold? It’s the same with water, we feel thirsty every time our body needs more liquids.

There’s no point filling up our body with water if there’s no need for it. There’s actually

Reasons to Be Repulsive

We humans are a terribly self-conscious bunch, bound by the shackles of social etiquette and governed by our need to fit in. As a child of rural Ireland, I was taught the following by teachers, clergy, childminders and my parents;

Picking your nose can cause brain damage.

Sweaty people are dirty and unhealthy.

Masturbation can make people cross-eyed.

Forgetting to put on knickers would certainly lead to a chill in your kidneys. (This was also true of sitting on a stone wall or step).

If you get too close to a swan, it will break your neck with its wing.

I gradually worked out that many of these theories are unfounded and have recently embarked on some research of my own. On nights where sleep evades me, I can be found lying awake, scanning scholarly articles and published studies on the actual benefits and risks of what are proposed to be ‘bad habits’. Also I work in the field of personal development and the pursuit of happiness and therefore have a natural curiosity about this kind of stuff. During my casual study, I was pleased to discover 5 good reasons to be rude.

1. MASTURBATION MAKES YOU MERRY!

Always Hungry. Most of the time, thirst is mistaken for hunger. People unnecessarily eat rather than drink. This is because the part of the brain which indicates hunger and thirst is the same area. How do you know thirst from hunger? Hunger happens gradually, not suddenly. So if you become hungry all of a sudden, reach for a glass of water first and not for a sandwich.

Sudden Sweet Tooth. The lack of water reduces the liver’s release of glycogens for energy. The brain sends this as craving signals, which you may interpret as a sign to grab a chocolate bar. When you have that craving, reach for a high water content snack, like a watermelon. Not only will your thirst be quenched, but you
