Get Some Sun
The Benefits of Sunlight
Want better sleep and a better mood? Get some sun. What is more natural than sunlight? When the sun is out, try to get as much of it as you can. Go for a walk (especially with friends). Numerous studies show that sunlight is good for your natural circadian rhythm, so you’ll feel sleepier at night and feel more awake during the day.
All energy on earth (except for volcanoes) is from the sun. All life on the surface of our planet depends on sunlight. A new study has found that getting enough natural sunlight each day could help reduce insomnia and improve mood. This study was published in the Journal of Affective Disorders and involved over 400,000 people.
The coauthor Sean Cain writes: “In this study, we observed that the greater time spent in outdoor light during the day was associated with fewer depressive symptoms, lower odds of using antidepressant medication, better sleep, and fewer symptoms of insomnia.”
Greater time in outdoor light was also associated with lowered odds of lifetime major depressive disorder and better outcomes across a range of mood and sleep measures. Additionally, too much light at night throws off your circadian (day-night) rhythm. So stop staring at artificial screens late at night. (1)
7 Essential Oils for the Holidays
When the Holiday season is approaching, turn to Aromatherapy to add to the ambiance. Here are some ideal Essential Oils to enhance your home as you celebrate Christmas, Hanukkah, or Kwanzaa this year.
Peppermint Essential Oil provides a boost of energy when you need it. Peppermint is also a wonderful anti-inflammatory. This means that it may help reduce pain caused by headaches, tight muscles, and upset stomachs. Its menthol component also helps to open congested airways.
Used as an ingredient in many favorite treats, Cinnamon provides a cozy sense of warmth and comfort. Additionally, Cinnamon can encourage a physical feeling of warmth as well. For example, adding a drop to a Winter massage may help heat the skin and the soul.
This Essential Oil helps to create a pleasant and secure emotional state of being. As for physical benefits, we love that Ginger is incredible for digestion. If Thanksgiving indulgences have pushed your tummy to the limit, apply Ginger with a carrier oil to the stomach and massage in a circular motion to help relieve nausea and indigestion.
What is a Chiropractic Adjustment?
Chiropractic care is made up of two parts. First, a subluxation, a physical distortion causing nerve interference or stress, is located in a person’s body. This is done using various instruments and tools that may range from the highly sophisticated, such as X-rays and MRIs, to the relatively simple (body measurement and multiple tests). In the hands of an expert, a simple tool can be very accurate.
Now comes the specialized procedure to correct, release or (the most commonly used word) adjust the patient’s subluxation. This is done to undistort the distortion in a person, correct the hidden stress, and release nerve stress. There are many chiropractic adjustment techniques; over 100 are taught today.
Typically, the adjustment involves introducing force or energy to the part of the body where the subluxation resides to unlock it, to put the part in motion so that the body will reposition the offending part.
An adjustment may take a moment, but its beneficial effects may be lifelong.
When Is The Best Time to See A Chiropractor?
Now is the best time. If you are alive and breathing, you are under stress, and you may have a painless condition increasing in your body called a subluxation.
What is a subluxation? It is a blockage or distortion of your spine and skeletal system that can irritate your nerves, discs, muscles, joints and even block the energy to your internal organs. Subluxations prevent you from functioning at 100%. You may have many in your body right now, undermining your health.
Fortunately, there are chiropractors. For over 125 years, chiropractors have been the healthcare professionals that specialize in the location and correction (adjustment) of subluxations. The effects of chiropractic adjustment can be powerful. That is why chiropractic has become the largest drug-free healing profession in the world.
Since subluxations are usually painless, you never know for sure if you have one or more. Come in for a chiropractic checkup and bring the kids and grandparents to get everyone’s subluxations located, analyzed, and corrected. Are you coming in to get healthy while your family is at home waiting to get sick?
The beauty of chiropractic care: we can locate and correct subluxations before you get sick or have symptoms.
