Can We Reverse Aging?


Does getting old really have to mean getting frail and forgetful? Is that a reality or a bias? Ellen Langer, Ph.D., a Harvard psychologist, performed a fascinating experiment to find out.

This is what she did. She brought eight men in their 70’s to stay in a converted monastery for five days. Unbeknownst to them when they passed through the doors they entered another time.

Everything inside — including the books on the shelves and the magazines left out to read — were designed to bring on the feeling of actually living in 1959 – Perry
Como and other singers came from a vintage radio. Ed Sullivan chatted away to his TV audience on a black-and-white television, and everything there was from 22 years ago.

How Chiropractic Care Can Help Treat A Cold & Flu


Your immune system is your primary defense against infection and your body has several strategies to ward off invaders. These include physical barriers like mucous membranes, the juices produced by your digestive tract, and weapons such as a fever to wash your system of intruders. These weapons are effective as long as they work correctly. All too
often, our bodies are not working at their optimal level. This compromises our immune system and leaves us vulnerable to illness. Your spine houses your nervous system which controls your immune system’s response. Hundreds of years of observation have proven that chiropractic treatment improves immune function.

Cold vs. Flu: What is The Difference?

It’s important to know the differences between flu and cold symptoms. A cold is a milder respiratory illness than the flu. While cold symptoms can make you feel bad for a few days, flu symptoms can make you feel quite ill for several days or weeks. The flu can also result in serious health problems such as pneumonia and may lead to hospitalization. Typically, flu symptoms include fever, body aches, fatigue, and dry cough. Symptoms for the common cold are normally a runny nose, congestion, and sneezing.
