In Need of Some D

In Need of Some D
The season of gloomy and sunless days are upon us in Seattle. You may be feeling a little “blue” but passing it off as seasonal depression… or you could be feeling, tired or sick and spend your time counting down the minutes until sunny days are back. 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 ...

The Silent Killer

The Silent Killer
The nervous system is responsible for every function in our body. From waking up in the morning to walking, talking, breathing, digestion, immune function and going to bed. Your nerves travel from the brain, down into the spinal cord, branching out into organs and limbs throughout the body to every tissue and cell. Misalignments in your spine due to injuries, poor postural, sleeping and sitting improperly, can place abnormal stresses that can shift the vertebrae out of place. These shifts and imbalances can pull on these delicate nerves and exert pressure reducing energy from reaching its intended destination. Chiropractors call this “Nerve Interference," a dangerous and usually silent condition with health altering side effects if it is left uncorrected. Over time if organs don’t receive proper nerve supply they are prone to weakness and disease. Most organs don’t have pain...

Escape Seattle: Jamaica

Escape Seattle: Jamaica
Seattle in the winter can be tough. For those of us with any sense, it’s time to pack up, ditch the traffic, and cash in your vacation hours to rejuvenate at the beach. But which one? After recently returning from the Caribbean, I would like to recommend Jamaica. Jamaica is home to the world’s fastest man: Usain Bolt, the world’s best rum: Appleton, and the world’s best reggae, including the legend himself: Bob Marley. The island is nothing short of a spicy cultural paradise. Eat the local street food like cheese patties (dough stuffed with beef and cheese), jerk chicken and curried goat. Drink Magnum (tonic wine), Appleton, and whatever once-off special the bartender is slanging by the pool. Where you stay is conducive to what you will do, but regardless of where you are on this magical island, you’ll...
