Healthy foods for men

Although most people associate chiropractic care with the spine, chiropractors have always had an interest in promoting the overall health and function of the body. A healthy diet is one of the best ways to keep the body and its functions in excellent working order. While it can be said that eating plenty of vitamins and minerals are good for all individuals, men’s and women’s bodies are different and hence ...
 
 

Digestion

Digestion is a function of the body that works endlessly without us being aware of it. Many people wrongly assume that digestion occurs only once we’ve eaten, but the process continues day and night to process the solids that we’ve eaten, distribute the vitamins and minerals around the body and push the toxins out. A strong digestive system is needed to process the complex substances vital for our survival.    ...
 
 

Emu Oil

Have you ever been wandering the aisles of the pharmacy or supermarket and come across emu oil, thinking what on earth it could be used for? Well, this ointment, which comes in varying forms, is a fantastic natural medicine to relieve arthritic pain and swollen sore points. Like many herbal medicines, it’s been around for centuries – held in great stead by Australian Aborigines and more recently, alternative health practitioners.  ...
 
 

Bedwetting

Bedwetting, or as enuresis, is a common occurrence for young children. In the first four or five years of life the problem shouldn’t be of much concern to parents, but it’s after this point that involuntary urination can indicate a deeper problem. This is because it’s assumed that after this age, children should have established proper bladder control.    There are two main forms of bedwetting: Primary and Secondary ...
 
 

Choosing a Women’s Multivitamin

Adelaide chiropractors have long espoused the view that general multivitamins are excellent for boosting levels of minerals and vitamins that we might not get enough of through our diet. The market is jam-packed with so many different products – all promising great things and with different active ingredients. While a general multivitamin is great for both men and women, considering the different hormonal levels within our bodies, the different functions ...

Foods that resemble the body parts they help

If you’re ever confused as to what foods are good for which body parts or ailments, well there’s a simple trick you can use. A trend has been spotted that some of the most common foods in our diet actually resemble the parts of the body they help. The coincidences are startling:    Sliced carrot: It’s been said that eating carrots enhances blood flow to the eyes and has ...
 
 

Colic

New parents often experience a mixed bag of emotions. On the one hand they delight in the wonders of new life and all the wonderful learning experiences and challenges. On the other hand, a change of lifestyle and the pressures of looking after a solely dependent human being can be very stressful. For many parents, this time can also be confusing, and a crying baby can soon grate on the ...
 
 

Breastfeeding and Asthma

In the last ten years, significant research has come to light which highlights the important link between breastfeeding and reducing illness in infants, right through to adulthood. Interestingly, pivotal links have been found between child rates of asthma and breastfeeding.    A Perth study, conducted at the Telethon Institute for Child Health Research, investigated over two and a half thousand infants from preterm to six years of age and ...
 
 

Poor Posture in Children Today

Research from the Chiropractors’ Association of Australia has shown that children as young as three are developing poor posture – all due to their increased use of electronic devices.    The recent study surveyed around 600 members of the public, as well as 126 chiropractors. The results were strongly indicative of a strong relationship between technology use and bad posture.    Traditionally, bad posture has been developed ...
 
 

Knee Injuries

As one of the most used joints in the body, the knee is something we see patients complain about often. If you consider that your legs bear the entire weight of your body, and anything you’re carrying, it’s not surprising to imagine just how much wear and tear it could get from just the most basic activities like sitting, walking and standing.    If we consider the function of ...
 
 

Sport and Chiropractic

Unfortunately, injury and sport generally go hand in hand. The reality is, whether playing sport at the elite or social levels, injuries do occur and they can leave long-lasting affects.    While acute injuries can be hard to avoid in the first instance, building up strength and keeping the body healthy, with a stable musculoskeletal system, can help improve all-round fitness, prevent chronic injury and further accidents.    ...
 
 

Scoliosis

As many as one in ten people will have scoliosis in some form. Women in particular are especially susceptible, with 90 per cent of sufferers being female. Scoliosis often presents during the teenage years, which are a critical formative time both physically and psychologically, and Adelaide teens often consult chiropractors during this time.   The spine has three natural curves; however, scoliosis is defined as the abnormal, lateral curvature ...
 
 

Diabetes and Chiropractic Care

Diabetes is one of the leading causes of death every year in Australia, and the numbers of those being diagnosed with the condition are increasing every year.
