Winter is officially here and that means cold temperatures (negative degree temps in the past week here in the Midwest). The drop in temperature causes car troubles, roads to freeze over, and can even wreak havoc on your health. The colder it is the more we try to avoid going outside. This means way more time is spend on the couch than being active which causes problems with the spine, specifically the back. This is why seeing a Chiropractor is very important during the winter months. Staying aligned keeps everything working properly and can even help boost your immune system to fight off any cold/flu like symptoms we are prone to in the winter.
Another thing we often see when it starts to get cold is weight gain. Although Chiropractic alone can’t prevent you from gaining weight, it can help to keep your joints in good condition and allow them to survive the cold and a few extra pounds without additional discomfort. If weight loss is a resolution for you this year, Whole 30 is a great program to start. It focuses on teaching the body to burn fat rather than sugar. The book provides numerous recipes that can be made with items you can find at a Woodbury grocery store.
