Can Vitamin D Work Without Magnesium?

Can Vitamin D Work Without Magnesium?
Extensive research has shown that vitamin D deficiencies play a major role in the development of dozens of diseases, including breast, prostate, and colon cancer, as well as diabetes, heart disease, arthritis, osteoporosis, psoriasis and mental illness. While many people are beginning to realize the health benefits that vitamin D has to offer in the prevention of disease, they may not be getting the full benefits from vitamin D without also supplementing their diets with magnesium. According to Carolyn Dean, MD, ND, magnesium expert and Medical Advisory Board member of the nonprofit Nutritional Magnesium Association ( nutritionalmagnesium.org ), "Magnesium is a vital nutrient because it converts vitamin D into its active form. "The effectiveness and benefits of vitamin D are greatly undermined in the absence of adequate levels of magnesium in the body. Magnesium acts with and is essential to the activity of vitamin D, and yet most Americans do not get...

Snoring is No Laughing Matter

Snoring is No Laughing Matter
Snoring is not only annoying. but can also can be a sign of more serious health concerns. Stroke, heart attack, and high blood pressure can be the result for men and women who suffer from snoring. SleepPath has created a humorous online video connecting how we snore and how we communicate to bring light to a common sleep disorder. “Snoring really is a serious health concern and it is important that consumers understand the symptoms, the risks, and some of the resources available to reduce snoring,” said Nick Carlone, president of SleepPath. “We created a fun video to demonstrate how our snoring affects our appeal to others. In the video story we offer just one of the simple solutions available for people who suffer from snoring.” Snoring can be an indication of sleep apnea, a serious, potentially life-threatening condition marked by cessation of breath lasting 10 or more seconds.

Meatless: Get Juicing

Meatless: Get Juicing
Whether you want an alternative to your morning coffee, a way to incorporate more fruits and veggies into your diet, or a full-body cleanse, juicing could be the solution you’ve been searching for. Even if you generally eat healthy and enjoy daily doses of fruits and veggies, juicing helps reduce your digestive system’s workload by skipping the breakdown process—when water and nutrients are extracted from food and fiber is discarded. Instead, the body can focus solely on absorbing the juice’s nutrients. Getting started is easy—just wash and prep your produce, throw it in the juicer, and let the machine work its magic. Most machines can handle the skin on fruits and veggies, but the flavor is often more pleasing sans skin or rind. Toss all prepped ingredients into your juicer, and if you choose to enhance the flavor with ginger, garlic, or other herbs, make sure to only add a small amount...

What is Cervical Pain?

What is Cervical Pain?
What is cervical pain? Simply put, it's a pain in your neck. The cervical part of the spine is your neck and is a marvelous and complex structure. It is capable of supporting a head weighing 15 or more pounds while moving in several directions. No other region of the spine has such freedom of movement. This combination however, complexity and mobility, make the neck susceptible to pain and injury.  Quick Cervical Spine Anatomy Lesson This complex structure includes 7 small vertebrae, intervertebral discs to absorb shock, joints, the spinal cord, 8 nerve roots, vascular elements, 32 muscles, and ligaments. The nerve roots stem from the spinal cord like tree branches through foramen in the vertebrae. Each nerve root transmits signals (nerve impulses) to and from the brain, shoulders, arms, and chest. A vascular system of 4 arteries and veins run through the neck to circulate blood between the brain and...

Can Chiropractic Help With Asthma?

Can Chiropractic Help With Asthma?
According to research, the skyrocketing number of asthma cases has to do with environmental variables such as increased pollution, food preservatives, mold and even genetics to name a few. While seeing a young child with an inhaler was quite a strange site in the 1980′s, today it is not that uncommon to see several kids in a classroom take out their inhalers for much needed relief. Asthma has become a huge problem and everyone agrees that future generations can expect to see even higher numbers of sufferers. Unfortunately there is no cure for asthma but there are ways to control the symptoms and stop it from becoming a larger problem that it already is. Experts agree that staying out of pollution, eating right, and living in a clean environment all help with the onset of symptoms, but what you may not have known is that chiropractic care has also been shown...

Good Posture Helps Back Related Health Problems

Good Posture Helps Back Related Health Problems
Your mother was right (but we won’t tell if you won’t). Standing up straight is important. Posture can affect more than the way you look to the world – it can affect the overall function and health of your body! In fact, good posture can help back related health problems. Your spinal column not only provides the framework which holds your body upright, but also acts as protection for your nervous system’s super highway. Nerves travel down from your brain, through your spinal column, and then throughout the rest of your body, delivering important information and orders to your organs and muscles. Nerves exit the column in specific areas and poor posture may lead to pinched nerves that may hinder your brain’s ability to communicate with the rest of your body. The additional pressure on the nerves also may put pressure on your body’s regulatory systems, suppressing your lungs and restricting...
