Hello Everyone in Natural Health Nation-
Well I hope you enjoy snow, we sure got our fair share this weekend. We haven’t seen a snow like this for quite many years. It was heavy to scoop too. Those kinds of activities, those that we don’t do every day, really show up weaknesses in the back and neck. If you are noticing any problems, now is the time to take care of it before spring gets here with all those activities. We are here to help you with great spinal care!
I decided to change the way that we do this newsletter as I’ve been told I’m sending out too much information at one time and it becomes overwhelming. So, I have picked one article that I’ll talk about and that follows the theme of the month-looking at the Immune System, Flu Shots and Viruses. I’ll try to comment a little more and give you an alternate view of what the mainstream wants you to think. It’s not always an opposite view, just more explanation of how things work.
The article this week is called Antibiotics Linked to Fatal Heart Condition. We all know that antibiotics have saved millions of lives over the years. There is no disputing that. The problem is that we have become accustomed to that and rely on that and don’t think about other ways of protecting our health. Add that to the problem of antibiotic overuse and the bugs becoming so strong that there is no stopping them in some disease scenarios. This article looks at the overuse of a certain antibiotic which has its own set of side effects, which can be fatal. A very interesting statistic that I ran across get the other day is that 97% of colds and flu’s are viral. This means that the antibiotics will have no effect on them and are causing adverse reactions, especially by destroying the gut flora which researchers are finding, have such a beneficial effect on our health and well-being. Again, we’re not telling patients to never use antibiotics, but are looking at common sense needs for this use. This country spends so much money on healthcare that we should never need antibiotics, but it’s just easier to not watch our diet, not exercise, not do health related activities, and just rely on the Dr. and antibiotics. One of our big goals here at Natural Health Chiropractic Center, is to keep our patients from needing antibiotics, and in the long run, never needing to go to a nursing home as they age. We know that life is finite, but let’s feel good and have a great life in the meantime.
Get Healthy, Stay Healthy, and Live Well
