Based on the unprecedented beginning of 2020 we feel that the rest of 2020 will be focused on “Proactive Healthcare” rather than Reactive Healthcare. This is exceptionally good news for those of us that have been preaching healthy lifestyle choices for several years now! The world has just had a massive wakeup call and I feel that many people are waking up to the importance of preparedness versus damage control!
As patients there are many simple things that each of us can do to improve our health without breaking the bank. At Harper Chiropractic we believe that you are responsible for your health. We also believe in giving you as many tips on things that you can do for yourself that do not have to cost a fortune. We are extremely excited to be able to offer our patients the critical components to increased health in one easy, convenient, package. Dr. Harpers Preconditioning Pak formulated for us by OHS (Optimal Health Systems) makes getting your daily requirement of Magnesium, Vitamin D-3 and K-2, Iodine, Selenium, and as an added bonus the pak includes an Adrenal Support which we all need! There is also a supplement to support our mitochondria which is the powerhouse of our cells! You can purchase the 30-day pak at the clinic or by following the link on the clinic website or going directly to the OHS website. I am excited simply because it eliminates a drawer full of various supplements that I am currently taking is easy to tear off and slip into a pocket or purse to take when you are ready! https://www.harper-chiropractic.com/preconditioning-pak/
The other thing that I cannot stress enough is how important the elimination of processed foods is for everyone’s health and wellbeing! Processed foods are full of added sugars as well as preservatives. Preservatives are meant to keep foods from breaking down. Our Stomach’s cannot breakdown and absorb even the little nutritional value that may be found in these foods. They supply no nutritional value, provide far too much added sugar and do nothing to nourish our bodies. In fact, many of the chemicals found in some of these things trigger the receptors in our brain that tell us when we are full, which increases our desire to eat more to feel satisfied. This is a recipe for disaster. Sugar is also the fuel that feeds diseases, including cancer. Sugar makes the body more acidic (inflamed) which is a prime environment for breeding disease, not to mention causing increased musculoskeletal and joint pain. By eliminating processed foods and replacing them with fresh, farm to table choices we increase the alkalinity in our system, decrease pain and just feel better overall! Check out the Metabolic diet, available for download on the www.harper-chiropractic.com website (Click Here For Link). Trying to make healthy carbohydrate choices is also important as the body readily breaks these down into sugars that are used as fuel for our body. Virtually everything we consume including protein will eventually be converted to glucose over time. However, making the body work harder to do that keeps the system from being flooded with sugar it cannot immediately use which necessitates storage in our fat cells, and our liver. This is not what we want to happen. We gain weight and we soon find ourselves developing Fatty Liver Disease. This is generally a precursor to type II diabetes, Metabolic Syndrome, Heart Disease Etc. The good news is that you can have a profound effect on your health no matter where you are just by making the simple changes I’ve talked about here! It is NEVER to late to make changes. And the best part is that everything you do will make a difference, and this gives us the affirmation to keep making changes! It’s a win win!
The moral of the story is it’s never to late to take responsibility for your health, and improving your health can cost a much or as little as you are prepared to spend and your health is the single most important investment you will ever make!
