Maximizing your Benefits
It is traditional for many people to embark on a new journey of self-care as part of their New Year’s Resolutions. While we applaud anyone’s efforts at self-improvement at any time, you could lose out on golden opportunities by starting your journey at the beginning of the calendar year instead of at the end. Most insurance plans reset in January. This is why December is an excellent time to get a head start on your self-care regimen for your new way of life. Listed below are three benefits to seeking Chiropractic Care in the weeks leading to the end of the year:

THE COMFORT AND JOY OF CHIROPRACTIC
A New Year, A New You – Achieving Wellness and Maintaining it Long-Term!

Committing to a lifestyle of health and fitness requires determination and hard work. Despite a person’s best efforts, there are many stumbling blocks on the road to well being. People often self-sabotage their efforts by avoiding and ignoring their basic self-care needs. Our Doctors understand these challenges and have come up with a list of four things you should focus on to get in great shape.

Chiropractic Care Enhances Sleep Quality and Depth for Millions

Many factors contribute to restless nights and insomnia. One factor often overlooked during a medical diagnosis traces to the health of the spine. Chiropractic adjustments address the overall health of the nervous system, spine, and organs. Studies on spinal adjustments prove that improving spinal and nervous system health triggers hormones which influence sleep quality. 


Chiropractic Adjustments Benefit Migraine Sufferers

Migraines leave more than 90% of sufferers unable to work or function normally during an episode. Symptoms of a migraine headache cause a person to feel massive head pressure, sensitivity to light, and even the inability to eat or keep food down. The current standard of care for those affected involves powerful pharmaceutical drugs which neither resolve the root cause nor initiate a plan to prevent future episodes. 

Physiotherapy
Cervical Exercises

These exercises will help stretch your cervical spine. Try doing each stretch, 5 repetitions and hold for 5 seconds before moving on to the next stretch. Good posture starts with your head nice and straight, shoulders level, even and back. Your ears should be perfectly positioned over your shoulders and your shoulders above your hips.


Metagenics ® Supplements
We recommend Science-Based Products from Metagenics because they meet the highest standards for research and quality manufacturing. Supplying your body with the nutrients it needs is a great way to assist your body's ability to heal and get the best possible results with chiropractic care.

Maple Glazed and Streusel Topped Pumpkin Bread
Recipe by Chelsea Fanders
Pumpkin Bread
1 1/4 cups all purpose flour
3/4 cup sugar
1 teaspoon baking soda
2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice


1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
2 large egg whites
1 1/2 cups canned pumpkin
2 teaspoons vanilla extract

Streusel Topping
1/4 cup white sugar
1/4 cup all purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
2 tablespoons butter, cut into pieces

Maple Glaze
1 cup powdered sugar
1-2 teaspoons milk (more/less for desired consistency)
1 teaspoon pure maple syrup

INSTRUCTIONS

Preheat oven to 350 degrees and lightly butter a a 9 x 5-inch loaf pan. Set aside.

Whisk together flour, sugar, baking soda, spices and salt in a medium bowl. Set aside. In the bowl of a stand mixer, combine oil, egg whites, pumpkin and vanilla until thick. Gradually add the flour mixture to the pumpkin mixture and mix until just combined. Scrape down sides of bowl to ensure all is incorporated. Pour batter into the prepared loaf pan.

Prepare streusel topping by mixing sugar, flour, cinnamon and butter with a pastry blender or fork until it's a crumble. Sprinkle on top of pumpkin bread batter before baking.

Bake for 50-65 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. If the bread starts to get too dark before the center is baked cover the top with foil to prevent burning towards the end of the baking time.

Once cool, prepare maple glaze by whisking together the powdered sugar, milk and maple syrup.The glaze should be thick but still thin enough to drizzle. Drizzle over bread, slice and enjoy!
