One Healing Modality That Impacts Whole Body Health
Having a chiropractor can help keep your entire body stronger and healthier. How? The spine plays a critical part in total wellness. Having a chiropractor can help keep your entire body stronger and healthier If the spine has shifted out of place--a condition referred to as spinal misalignment or subluxation--pressure is put on the delicate nerves that come out of the spine, causing nerve interference. This translates into the immune system not receiving proper signals and not functioning the way it was intended. Even slight misalignments can put the body into states of imbalance. Very often, chiropractic patients who were simply seeking relief from back pain or poor posture will discover that symptoms they had not related to spinal health will also dramatically improve. There are countless unexpected health benefits which people enjoy as a result of committing to chiropractic care.  Improvement in Asthma Several studies shown the connection between...

If You Get Whipped

If You Get Whipped
Have you ever been in a car accident? According to the National Safety Council, odds are you will have a total of three to four accidents in your driving lifetime whether its your fault or another driver's.  There are about 10 million auto accidents each year, from parking lot scrapes to multi-car pileups.

Specialized Care For Whiplash Injuries In Seattle

Specialized Care For Whiplash Injuries In Seattle
Have you been involved in a motor vehicle accident recently and are experiencing pain? One of the most common injuries sustained as a result of a car accident is that of whiplash.

But before you go and blame it on the rain, your body may just be lacking some D. Despite its name, vitamin D is not your every day vitamin. Actually, it is a hormone that your body makes by itself designed for you to obtain vitamin D mostly through sun exposure, not though your diet. It helps fight infections, including colds and the common flu and will help regulate the expression of genes that influence your immune system to attack and destroy bacteria and viruses. However, here lies one the the biggest problems for people in northern climates like Seattle: the sun is...
