Lose Weight and be Healthier with this Technique

Lose weight for your health.  Covid-19 infection effects people with co-morbidities more so than people without.  Co-morbidities are underlying illnesses or diseases that a person has prior to covid infection.  Co-morbidities include but are not limited to diabetes, asthma, auto-immune disease, heart disease, cancer and even being overweight.  Even mild obesity can raise the risk of severe covid.  Obesity is defined as being 30 or more pounds over your normal bodyweight.  Mild obesity increased the risk of respiratory failure 2.5 x and also gives you a 5 x greater risk of being admitted to the ICU.  Those with a body mass index of 35 and over were 12 x more likely to die from covid.  Inflammation triggered by carrying the extra bodyweight can increase the risk of lung blood clots three fold.  One of the most important factors for overall health is to be within a few pounds of your target bodyweight. Sadly, society today makes being at a normal bodyweight difficult because of processed foods, junk foods and soft drinks which are the key factors in our nation’s rise of obesity.  These types of foods all play a role in chronic disease and increase your risk of severe covid-19.  To be healthy, diet and exercise are paramount.  All of the recent research points to time restricted eating as a way of building metabolic health.  Metabolic health is overall health.  Cellular metabolism has to do with the control of everything in the body.  Time restricted eating is eating all of your daily food within a certain time window of the day.  For instance, if your last bite of food is at 7pm, your next food eaten would be at 11am the next day.  Your eating window is 8 hours between 11 am and 7pm.  By eating in the restricted time window, you improve metabolic function, burn more calories at rest and lose weight.  In addition to time restricted eating, intermittent fasting is a proven way of losing weight.  Intermittent fasting is a slightly more restricted way of timed eating.  2-3 days a week, no food is eaten say from 7pm to 1 or 2pm.  In conjunction with time restricted eating on the non-intermittent days, weight is lost at a faster rate and metabolism improves dramatically.  And lets not forget the importance of daily exercise.  40 minutes a day of extra activity (not work related) will contribute big time to metabolic health and weight loss.  Ps.  Coffee, tea and water do not count as food.



Gain of function virus research, according to congressional testimony by former CDC director Dr. Robert Redfield, leaves no doubt in Dr. Redfield’s mind that the funded research by Dr. Anthony Fauci and the National Institute of Health resulted in the creation of covid-19 and the subsequent lab leak that created the pandemic.  Dr. Robert Redfield recently made this statement during the first formal hearing  of the congressional select subcommittee on the coronavirus pandemic.  Ironically, the hearing followed the subcommittee’s release of a memo from Dr. Fauci and key NIH figures telling virologists to write an influential article squelching the theory that covid-19 came from a lab leak in Wuhan, China.  Last month the US Department of Energy and the FBI  both determined that the covid virus most likely emerged from a laboratory in Wuhan, China.  This led to a senate vote on declassifying U.S. intelligence documents on the origins of covid-19.


Mushrooms have long been studied for their positive effect on the body’s immune system and their anti-cancer properties.  The lions mane mushroom has been shown to influence neurons in the brain which when researched in mice showed an increase in memory.  They have also been beneficial in treating brain injuries.  Lion’s mane mushrooms also have a positive influence on blood pressure levels and blood sugar.  They are also high in anti-oxidants which repair cell damage.  Whole Foods Market sell fresh lion’s mane mushrooms and they are also available on Amazon.


Cervicogenic Headaches:  These are headaches that are caused by tight muscles in the neck which is the result of fixated (stuck) and misaligned spinal bones in the neck.  Once the spinal bone misaligns the neck muscles become imbalanced and unstable and spinal nerves are irritated.  This results in headaches.  Over-the-counter medications will temporarily reduce the symptoms, but as long as the neck muscles are tight from the stuck spinal bones, the headaches will return. Chiropractic care corrects the condition by freeing the misaligned spinal bone and allowing proper motion.  This removes the nerve irritation and relaxes the neck muscles correcting the cause of the headaches.  Chiropractors are trained in many techniques to safely and effectively correct cervicogenic headaches.


Pregnancy and Prenatal Chiropractic Care Information:   Prenatal pregnancy care is when you recieve check-ups from your OB /GYN, Nurse, Midwife and Chiropractor throughout your pregnancy.  These check-ups help to keep you and your baby healthy.  These regular check-ups during your pregnancy are important to help ease any discomfort you may be having and to ask questions about your pregnancy and baby’s future birth.  From a chiropractic perspective, pregnancy patients will see the chiropractor for pelvic alignment, round ligament care and to improve neural impulse flow to the uterus.  These visits may be bi-weekly at first and then increase to weekly and twice weekly visits as the pregnancy progresses.
