Chiropractic Care and Your Immune System

Boost your immune system chiropractic careWhile chiropractic adjustments don’t specifically treat your immune system, improving the immune system’s functioning is one of many ‘fringe benefits‘ of chiropractic care.

How does chiropractic care help your immune system? 

  • Chiropractic adjustments help correct ‘subluxations’ (or joint dysfunctions) in your spine.
  • Your spine houses your nerves.
  • Your nerves effect every area of your body, including your immune system.

When the joints in the spine are better aligned, and stress is relieved from the nervous system, the communication within the nervous system is improved; thus helping the immune system function properly.

Children, in particular, seem to benefit the most from this ‘fringe benefit’ of chiropractic care. We’ve seen great results with chiropractic adjustments helping children with ear infections, tonsillitis, allergies and asthma – just to name a few.

If you’re not feeling your best, (or even if you are!) call to arrange your chiropractic appointment, and maybe you’ll experience one of the many ‘fringe benefits’! 519-258-8544

Back to School Tips

Happy Healthy Back to school TipsWe all want our children to be happy and succeed in school. A successful school year begins with a success start to the school year.

Here are our ideas to help you prepare yourself, your children and your house for a great school year.

Reset internal sleep clocks

Returning to a normal sleep schedule can be the most challenging part of children going back to school.

Get your kids into bed 15 minutes earlier than their summer normal, and awake 15 minutes early each day until they are back on their school sleep routine well in advance of the first day.

Get organized

Reduce stress on the entire house by getting organized. Create a family calendar and a calendar for each child. It’s the perfect place to document all after school activities, field trips, doctor appointments and assignment deadlines.

Involve the children in updating their calendars and checking in daily to see upcoming priorities.

Shop, but don’t over shop

Most children will require some clothes and supplies for back to school, but this is a good opportunity to demonstrate to your kids that a happy life doesn’t revolve around owning “things” – just buy them the necessities and the basics.

A good life is focused on what’s important; family, experience, personal growth and expression.

Plan meals ahead of time

  • Take the time to prepare a week’s menu in advance to help:
  • Remove much of the stress related to meal planning
  • Avoid time consuming extra trips to the grocery store
  • Eliminate expensive and unhealthy fast food meals

Involve your children in choosing school lunches and meal planning to help them understand the importance of making healthy decisions.

Appointments

Use the last few weeks of summer to take care of your child’s health. Taking care of doctor visits now (including your chiropractor!) will ease the stress of a new school year.

Getting into a well organized back to school routine will help establish lasting good habits. Reducing stress within the family dynamic will help everyone focus on what’s important; another successful school year.

From our families to yours, we wish you all the best!

Healthy and Happy Back to School Routine

3 happy girls in schoolMake it easy on yourself and your children by having a healthy back to school plan in place well before the first school day.

Taking the time to be well prepared in advanced will save your family time and stress when the first bell rings.

Reset internal sleep clocks

Returning to a normal sleep schedule can be the most challenging part of children going back to school. Children need proper sleep for them to function at their best and if their summer wake up time is off from their school wake up time, your kids will suffer when they return to school.

Get your kids into bed and awake 15 minutes early each day until they are back on their school sleep routine well before the school year begins.

Get organized

School can be stressful for not just the kids but for parents as well. Spend time creating a family calendar and a calendar for each child. It’s the perfect place to document all after school activities, field trips, doctor appointments and assignment deadlines.

Involve the children in updating their calendars and checking in daily to see upcoming priorities.
