Change is Hard...Or is it?

Did you know that 95% of who we are by the age of 35 is programmed into us? Meaning your brain and body is hard-wired to get out of bed the same way every morning, have the same daily thoughts, and do the same things over, and over, and over again, without as much as a single thought.

No wonder why change is hard. Your life experiences and beliefs have programmed you to think, act, and behave a certain way.

So to make a change means you have to change your programming.

The process starts with becoming aware of your actions and behaviors. Can you wake up 30 minutes earlier? Can you change the way you drive to work just to interrupt your programming? Can you drink tea instead of your morning coffee?

What can you do differently to change the monotony of your programming?

Admittedly, my programming has been faulty lately too. I’ve been telling myself that I’m “healthy”, but my actions didn’t corroborate that story.

I wasn’t exercising and my eating habits were atrocious. But, of course, I had excuse after excuse as to why it was okay. And that I would start tomorrow. Tomorrow…the infamous black hole where all your healthy exercise and eating habits go to never be seen again.

But something had to give. So here I am changing my programming and hoping to inspire you to do the same. Don’t wait until tomorrow. You, your family, and your future self will thank you.

Infant Massage Technique

"I Love You" is actually the name of this handy infant massage technique. It helps activate your baby's bowels to relieve gas and get things moving. And as an added bonus: it's a way to connect with your little one. Make sure to watch the video to learn the technique. 

But I wouldn't be doing my due diligence as your chiropractor if we didn't discuss why your baby might be backed up. There's (almost) always an underlying cause as to why baby's experience excess gas or constipation. And that's something we can definitely help you with here in the office. Reach out to us, we'd love to see your little ones happy and healthy.

Headaches and Chiropractic

A common descriptor I hear from patients when I ask about headaches is, "Yeah, I get them, but they're just the normal, daily headaches." Well guess what? HEADACHES ARE NOT NORMAL! And you shouldn't have to live with them.

Headaches can be due to a number of different causes, but one thing that ALL headaches have in common? It's your body's way of sending up a flare, trying to tell you something isn't right. Your over-the-counter pain reliever is only masking the real issue, not solving your problems. And although popping a pill might be easy and convenient, your stomach, kidney, and liver are not thanking you either.
