June 2018

June  is Mens Health Month -- a great time to encourage the special men in your life to make their health a top priority and to schedule a health assessment this month!  

Statistics show that men visit the doctor less frequently than women. Misalignments in the vertebrae can happen quite easily and can affect many areas throughout the body -- chiropractic care can help pinpoint underlying causes and help with headaches, earaches, high blood pressure, repetitive workplace injuries, sports injury prevention and can facilitate recovery. 

Life gets busy -- don't let your health goals fall by the wayside.  Eat healthy, reduce your stress.   Try acupuncture for your knee pain!  Come in for a massage!  Our staff has a wide range of healing modalities to help improve your health naturally. Schedule your visit today! 631.265.1223. 

We want to wish all our dads a very Happy Fathers Day and offer our congrat-ulations and best wishes for success to all our graduates!

Yours in health,

Dr. Keri Chiappino and Dr. W. Brent Reynolds

Anxiety Bad for Your Nerves... and Now Your Brain, Too
Midlife Anxiety as a Possible Cause of Dementia?

Everyone gets anxious from time to time -- it's a normal reaction to stressful events in our lives. However, anxiety that crosses the line and becomes excessive can be a debilitating disorder that compromises everyday living. 

Anxiety disorders can manifest as panic attacks, excessive rumination, obsessive behaviors and chronic worrying, and can trigger gastrointestinal distress, migraines, insomnia... and possibly dementia.

In a new study co-funded by the Alzheimer's Society,  researchers found an association with  moderate to severe anxiety in midlife and dementia in later life.  The study authors found that excessive anxiety "speeds up brain cell aging and degeneration in the central nervous system" which may increase vulnerability to dementia. 

Neurofeedback brain-wave training can help to regulate abnormal brain-wave patterns that trigger anxiety -- without medications and the severe side effects that often occur. Neurofeedback therapy actually trains the brain to produce calm, normal brainwaves, reducing anxiety and potentially reducing the risk of cognitive disorders like dementia and Alzheimer's Disease.

Check out my video above for more info, and then call our office to schedule a QEEG brain map to discover if you are a good neurofeedback candidate.

Speaking About Brain Health...

Want to  help improve your brain's age?  Reduce the stress in your life with deep breathing meditation. 

New research has established a neurophysiological link for the first time between meditation and breathing exercises.  Combined, the two have been shown to impact noradrena line levels in the brain,  a natural chemical neurotransmitter that can help the brain grow new connection between cells. 

In the elderly, meditating can help preserve important grey matter in numerous regions in the brain, potentially helping to reduce the risk of dementia, and helping to retain a more youthful brain.  For those with attention disorders like ADHD or traumatic brain injury, mindful meditation can provide cognitive benefits such as improved focus and feelings of calmness.  Other benefits include decreased emotional reactivity, decreased anxiety and social anxiety fears.
Setting aside time each day to practice deep breathing mediation enables the mind to disconnect from the stressors in life that can be detrimental to memory and overall brain health.  Commit to 25 minutes a day -- your brain, and body, will thank you for it!  Check out Dr. Chiappino's downloadable guided meditations  at

Chiropractic for COPD 

Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is a common lung condition that affects close to 200 million worldwide, for which there is no known cure.  Experts say the number may be much higher, as many people who struggle with wheezing, coughing and difficulty breathing issues don't even realize they have the condition, attributing flareups to the natural aging process. 

A newly published systematic review has shown that positive changes in lung function can be achieve through chiropractic care.  In five out of six studies reviewed, participants showed improvements in lung function and exercise performance following chiropractic adjustments.

Being mindful to reduce your exposure to toxins reduces the risk of developing this widespread condition -- i.e. refraining from smoking or vaping (don't let e-cigarettes fool you -- they contain formaldehyde, heavy metals, and particles that can get stuck in the deepest parts of your lungs), reducing exposure to toxic fumes in the workplace, and avoiding the use of harsh cleaning chemicals in your home and on your body. 

Young Living's line of pure essential oils for personal care and cleaning products offer a naturally healthy and effective alternative to chemical-laden products, helping to protect your lungs and overall health.   Visit our website or call our office to learn how to incorporate essential oils into your daily living!
