Assisted My Son with His Poor Eating Habits

Imagine ending up at an Oklahoma City chiropractor because of your son’s poor eating habits! It sure sounds strange, but that is exactly what happened to my husband and I after a few years of trying to deal with our son not eating properly. We’re not picky parents about our children and what they eat, not really. We obviously want them to eat well, but it’s ok if they steal a snack or two here or there or have fast food once a week. The problem is that our son simply wouldn’t eat, and it began to harm his health.

As everyone knows, it is absolutely essential that growing children have as good of a diet as possible. The years in which their bodies grow and their minds develop are crucial for a healthy adulthood. Continue reading Assisted My Son with His Poor Eating Habits

Chiropractor for Lower Back Pain

I am not sure what I did to my lower back, but it is killing me. It is hard to get up and move around, and walking for more than a few minutes really makes me want to fall down to my knees and cry. Of course, I can’t cry because that is not in my character, but it sure seems like it would be nice right about now. I am going to try to find a good chiropractor in Beverly Hills to go visit and get some treatment for my back.

I hope that they will be able to do the trick, and to make my back feel like new again. Of course, that sort of view is probably a bit too optimistic to be realistic. I might have a really good treatment session on my first visit though, for all I know. it is definitely possible. Although, I am not going to bank on it, or anything like that.

Time to Get Serious About Nutrition

The San Rafael chiropractor I ended up going to in order to find the cause of my chronic muscle pain really brought home to me how important nutrition is in every person’s life. I never learned much about eating right, or even eating a diverse group of foods. My parents were definitely the junk food type, and unfortunately us kids followed their lead. It’s far easier to just not make great meals at home and swing by a fast food restaurant for lunch and dinner. Eating even a fair amount of junk food isn’t terrible as long as you balance it with something else.

I never got around to achieving that balance. The result? I had a heart attack that came out of the blue when I was in my late fifties. My arteries were blocked up pretty good, and I eventually had to have bypass surgery to fix the problem. Sadly, my doctors didn’t know much about nutrition except to say quit eating junk food.

I Had Some Balance Issues

I started to get concerned when I fell for the second time in less than a week. The first time, I just attributed it to me being clumsy. The second time though, I knew that there was something wrong with my balance. I wanted to get it checked out, so I contacted my doctor, who saw me immediately. He is the one who suggested that I visit a Santa Rosa chiropractor after doing a complete examination along with blood work. Everything had come back normal, and he told me that it could be something as simple as my spine needing adjusted.

He referred me to a chiropractor who has an office fairly close to my apartment, and I was happy that he could see me quickly too. I was honestly that worried about falling for a third time. The examination was much easier than I expected. He did some X-rays so he could have a look at my spine, and he also had me demonstrate my range of motion for him. It was not the best, but then again, I had been slowing down for some time because of my age. Continue reading I Had Some Balance Issues

Our Son Was Nearly Hit by a Car

My ten year old son was crossing the road about two months ago when a car came racing down the road, easily going twice the speed limit. He narrowly missed hitting my son, but he was still injured when he jumped back and hit the curb. I knew that we had gotten extremely lucky because it could have been so much worse. I took my son right to the hospital emergency room to be checked out. They did some testing because his back was hurting. The ER doctor suggested that I take him to a Santa Barbara chiropractor because while there was bruising and he was sore, there were no internal damages that would require a hospital stay.

He explained that a chiropractor would be able to perform some adjustments on his back and get him feeling up to par again. I had no idea that a kid could even go to the chiropractor as a patient. I thought this was something that only adults did. Continue reading Our Son Was Nearly Hit by a Car

My Mom Has Cancer and is Doing Okay

For years, I wondered if anyone in my family would ever be sick and need the use of medical marijuana. I soon found out the answer to that because my own mother has cancer and she now gets medical marijuana in Marlton NJ where she lives. Cancer has been a very scary thing to me, and it has been so scary to watch my mother go through it. However, I am glad that she is someone who lives in a time where our medical community can do so many more things for a patient to keep them alive and to keep them comfortable as well.

Mom has always been really good with her health. I can’t say the same for myself. My mom has been really into exercise for as long as I can remember. I have never seen her weigh more than 5 pounds over her appropriate weight. She walks, bikes, swims and so many more things. About a year before her diagnosis, she also took up golfing. Continue reading My Mom Has Cancer and is Doing Okay

My Car is a Total Loss

It did not really seem all that bad at the time, but it turned out that my car could not be fixed for a reasonable price. I had problems as well, although I did not suspect that it would be very serious at the time. I was hurting. The guy ran a red light and struck me at about fifty miles an hour. The police were there about five seconds later, they were chasing this guy. I was dazed and so this stuff did not enter with me. A San Leandro chiropractor had to fix my back, although it was about a week before I realized that it was not going to get better unless I did something about it.

Moving Has Been Really Good for Me

I knew that life would be different after moving to California, and I have really loved every bit of it. It’s so different from where I grew up and have lived all my life in the Eastern portion of the United States. I go to a chiropractor in Carmichael CA that I have ended up marrying. He lives a good life, and he has taught me how to take better care of myself. After living in a state where it is cold for a long time each season, I now live in a state where people get outside in the sun to get exercise and feel better. It is so nice and I have felt right at home with all of it.

What are the things that struck me when I move to California was seeing how many people are out on the road every day. There are people walking and riding their bikes everywhere. Where I lived before, it’s pretty real, and it takes a long time to walk anywhere. So many people don’t do it. Most people spend their time in their car going to wherever they need to go. And because the winter season is so long because of the snow and the bitter cold temperatures, a lot of people don’t get out for at least half of the year. That was normal to me while I live there.

Once I moved to my new state, I decided that I wanted to get out of it more too. I found it really help the way that I feel everyday. I began to feel happier. I know part of this was getting more vitamin D because I was out in the sunlight everyday. But it also felt good to get out and stretch my legs after work, walk through the neighborhood and get to know my neighbors, and even lose a little bit of weight. Not long after I moved here, I started going to a chiropractor, and that is when I met my new husband.

No Need to Be Stubborn

It took the effort of my entire family to get my grandfather to go to a chiropractor in Cary NC. He had been dealing with back pain for quite some time, but never do anything about it besides getting some pain powder from the drug store and dissolving it in a cup of water. It’s not like he couldn’t afford to go, as he was getting health care from the government because of his military service. We tried many times to get him to go, but he just wouldn’t do it. He just kept telling us that his back would heal on his own without the help of some kind of quack. Although he wouldn’t admit it, he was really afraid to go any kind of medical professional for help.

The exact reason why he was afraid of medical professionals wasn’t exactly clear, but my grandfather has often told us many times about various trips to the doctor that he’s taken in his life, and how he didn’t like any of them. Continue reading No Need to Be Stubborn

Desk Job Put a Strain on My Neck

My neck started hurting after I got a desk job. When we switched to laptops I still wanted to use a regular keyboard and a mouse. I cannot stand the touchpad and the keys on the keyboard of a laptop. This puts the screen too far away from me, and I lean my neck forward to see it. So much for following good ergonomic recommendations. I ended up pinching a nerve in my neck that lead to sensations of bugs crawling in my right ear and a similar sensation across my face to my nose. A San Francisco chiropractor was on my list of necessary calls to make on my way home from work on Monday. The reason I called is that I fixed how I sit at my computer a couple of weeks before, but I still had the odd sensations.

The IT department hooked me up with a flat screen monitor I could attach to my laptop when at my desk. The keyboard was right in front of it, so that fixed my problem of poor body position while using a computer. However, I did not feel any better in my neck even two weeks later.
