Dear Patient and Friend,

Scientists have known for years that walking is great exercise. Regular brisk walking can extend your lifespan up to twenty years! But a new study has shown that walking may offset the harmful effects of poor sleep patterns.

It’s no secret to doctors of all kinds that not getting enough quality sleep interferes with not only your daily function but also your longevity. Insufficient sleep may cost you years off your life. So, anything you can do to improve the way your body works could give you back those lost years.

A huge study in Australia and England followed 380,000 people over 11 years and compared their exercise routines with their sleeping habits. They discovered that those who exercised consistently shook off many of the problems associated with bad sleep – in other words, even if they didn’t sleep enough, exercise helped them to live longer and healthier. Moreover, those who both exercised and slept well were even healthier still. But those who slept poorly and did not exercise were 60% more likely to die early, 70% more likely to get heart disease, and had a 45% greater risk of cancer.

Our July Breakthrough Newsletter

Dear Patient and Friend,

When you are thirsty, your brain and body are calling for more water – but too often, we drink beverages that may seem to quench our thirst temporarily but actually are potentially harmful. So let’s look at what happens in your brain when you drink soda pop.

Besides promoting tooth decay and obesity, drinking too much sugary soda decreases your thinking and memory functions. So some people opt for diet soda, thinking it less unhealthy.

But in fact, a 2017 study showed that drinking diet soda increased the risk of stroke and dementia. Regular diet soda abusers tripled their probability of Alzheimer’s disease and stroke. And those who drank regular sugary soda increased the risk of stroke by 21%, according to a 2020 study published in the Journal of the American Heart Association.

Drinking soda also tends to interrupt normal sleep patterns due to the caffeine and sugar content. It has also been shown to create memory problems, which linger from adolescent soda abuse and last into adulthood.

Nutritionists link soda to caffeine dependence, in which a person exhibits symptoms of being sluggish, irritable, or lacking focus and concentration. Ongoing caffeine consumption from soda can lead to chemical changes in the brain that make you and your brain crave more. This means that you may feel like you need more soda to feel the stimulating effects of caffeine.

While occasional soda drinking is usually okay, drinking it every day leads to health issues, so be sensible, and you’ll be taking better care of your brain.

Our April Breakthrough Newsletter

Dear Patient and Friend,

A long-term research study shows that something as simple as eating two fruits and three vegetables a day can add more healthy years to your life.

Scientists from Harvard Medical School published their findings in the journal “Circulation.” Their conclusion was unmistakable – after following almost two million adults from all over the world, including two studies that watched 100,000 participants over a thirty-year period, eating two servings of fruit and three servings of vegetables per day was the optimal proportion for longevity. People who ate in this way demonstrated a 13% less risk of death from all causes – 12% fewer heart conditions and stroke, 10% less cancer, and a whopping 35% less respiratory disease.

A few guidelines, though – starchy veggies like potatoes, corn, and peas didn’t affect longevity, though they aid digestion because of their high fiber content. Fruit juices don’t extend your life – it’s better to eat the whole fruit, like oranges, grapes, and apples. The fruits and vegetables that seemed to have the most positive benefits were citrus fruits, berries, carrots, and green leafy vegetables like spinach, lettuce, and kale.

A portion is considered 80 grams, or 1/3 cup, so working two portions of fruit (2/3 cup) and three portions of vegetables (1 cup) into a full day of eating sounds reasonable enough. And, remember not to undo the good you do with those fruits and veggies with too much processed food, sugar, or salty fried foods – studies like this help us understand why a healthy balanced diet adds years to your life and life to your years.

Our January Breakthrough Newsletter

Dear Patient and Friend,

Your immune system is responsible for protecting you from infection, and so you have heard a lot about immunity in the news these days. Your body comes fully equipped to defend itself, and that’s why the huge majority of the time you get sick, your body fights it off naturally, even with a very serious illness like COVID-19.

As much as 98% of the people who get coronavirus recover, and that’s because your miraculous immune system takes care of eliminating most invaders like bacteria or viruses, for example.

But did you know that your brain also plays a major role in keeping you safe and healthy? The brain oversees the cells that gobble up the microorganisms that are associated with diseases, and that’s why, in addition to taking good care of your immune system, with Vitamin C, Vitamin D3, zinc, and selenium, for example, you also need to take care of your brain.

Avoid injuries and stress, and arrange to be examined by your family chiropractor, who will tell you how healthy your brain is and what you can do to get it healthier still. Your chiropractor, Wendy Lanser, DC, is a secret weapon to keep you healthy – but only if you go in for a check-up. See your doctor of chiropractic, and ask about the health of your brain – you may be surprised by what you learn.

Breakthrough May Newsletter

Dear Patient and Friend,

Chances are, you have been affected in some way by the unusual and harmful onset of coronavirus infection – COVID-19 has moved quickly through our population because our bodies are unfamiliar with this virus, and therefore we have not yet developed immunity to it, as we have with dozens of other infections.

We will ultimately be fine, as we have come through other viral challenges like ebola, the swine flu, and of course the common cold. This virus seems to affect the huge majority of those infected gently or not at all, while 2-3% do not survive the infection.

If the infection is contained, then not as many people contract the disease, which is why it has been so important to observe social distancing, a technical term that simply means “staying away from each other.” So, other than washing your hands and staying as clean and sanitary as possible, keeping yourself and your family out of harm’s way means we should be wise enough to isolate ourselves, remaining at home, and if we do have to go out, putting six feet or so between you and anyone you engage.

Even though it’s frustrating and difficult, this is an important part of staying healthy during a widespread infection, a pandemic – ride it out, do the best you can, and take steps to stay as healthy as possible.

Dear Patient and Friend,

Unless you live in an area that is warm in January and February, you’re probably looking forward to getting outside for a breath of fresh, spring air. The change of seasons is a time for exhilaration, but it also causes stress for some people.

Spring cleaning, gardening, outdoor sports, getting kids to and from their school and social engagements – there’s a lot going on, and it can be hard to keep up.

That’s why it’s so important to take extra good care of yourself, so the stresses of the season don’t knock you off course. Get enough sleep – seven or eight hours for most people. Drink enough water – at least six or eight glasses a day, if not more. Avoid processed foods, salty and sweet snacks, and instead choose fresh, wholesome, healthy foods and treats.

Everything you do to make yourself healthier is an investment you make in yourself. And one of the best investments you can make is to get yourself and your loved ones a check-up by your family chiropractor, Dr. Wendy Lanser, DC.
