Overall Health Begins With Strong Foundations

Overall health and wellness is tied to every aspect of body function. 

Without good habits, your body's structure begins to break down. And without a good structure, the rest of your body begins to rebel...you'll feel tired all of the time, suffer chronic pain, or find that you just can't think or function as efficiently as you used to.

Just as poor oral health affects your overall condition, bad skeletal structure or nutrition also affects wellbeing. 

Back and neck pain may cause a loss of sleep, pinched nerves impede circulation, and frequent migraines from Anterior Head Syndrome and other conditions cause stress and leave you exhausted. What else can they cause? Check out this partial list of Back and Neck Pain Secondary Conditions.

Eating foods that just aren't good for you challenge your digestive, respiratory and circulatory systems. Letting your waistline expand too much puts strain on your neck and spine -- damaging the very foundation of your body -- which leads back to all of those secondary symptoms we mentioned. 

So what do you do? Eat properly, work ergonomically and exercise, of course! 

And if you're lacking the motivation, start with the little things. I can give you some tips on jumpstarting your healthier lifestyle, address any spine or neck problems to get the rest of you back to working more efficiently, and help you with insomnia, allergies, vitamin deficiency and more.

Liver Health & Function

Today our subject is the liver. Let's take a few minutes to learn about this remarkable organ.

Your liver has many roles and is thought to be responsible for up to 500 separate functions, working hand in hand (so to speak) with our other systems and organs. It supports almost every organ in the body and is vital for our survival.

This organ is a storage warehouse. It stores many substances, including glucose, vitamin A, vitamin D, vitamin B12, iron, and copper, to name a few.

The liver makes up a part of our immune system along with the spleen and the lymphatic system. This system acts as a filter for our circulatory system.

This vital part of your anatomy is key to healthy detoxification and elimination of metabolic wastes, drug residues, and environmental toxins. It breaks down or modifies toxic substances and then they are excreted.

Because of its many functions, your liver is also prone to many diseases. The most common include infections such as hepatitis, HIV, alcohol damage, fatty liver, cirrhosis, cancer and drug damage (especially acetaminophen and cancer drugs).
An old naturopathic saying is that “when in doubt, treat the liver.” This is so true. Because the liver is involved in so many processes, most people will benefit from a liver support program.

We carry many different liver support products. Ask me which one is right for you.
