Chiropractic works

Why do most people go to see a chiropractor instead of a doctor when they have problem with their back or anything that's related to the spine? Simple. Because chiropractic works.But for my Buddy Albert he turns to chiropractic to have a normal blood pressure.

Nowadays, it seems as if everybody have this problem. If you are worried about your high blood pressure, a chiropractor could help. In one study, 21 patients with blood pressure problem were randomly assigned to one of three groups: one group received chiropractic treatment, another given "fake" treatment, and the last group receives no treatment at all.

Results showed that systolic and diastolic blood pressure decreased significantly in the active treatment condition, whereas no significant changes occurred in the placebo and control conditions.

Vinegar can cure

Vinegar contains agents proven to help kill bacteria and fungus, one of the medical benefits of vinegar is it can help cure athlete's foot and other foot fungus. Soaking your feet in vinegar, just once a day, will help change the PH levels in your skin so that fungus cannot grow. Bacterial killing agents found in vinegar, will help kill the existing bacteria and fungus.

Another one of the many medical benefits of vinegar is it can help relieve cramps- such as a calf or leg cramp. Muscle cramps can be excruciating, and pain medications can take a while to take effect. Very often muscle cramps are caused by low potassium levels in the body. Taking one teaspoon of vinegar orally when you are suffering from any type of muscle cramps will quickly cause your potassium level to rise and help relieve the cramps.

The goodness of water

How many times have you heard the saying drink eight glasses of water a day and you will look and feel great. Then you are thinking, you hope you are near a restroom all day. But the fact of the matter is that water, which really has no nutritional value, is really very good for you.

Drinks like soda and ice teas have a lot of caffeine but they are also very fattening. There are several ways that water can be beneficial to you.

Water helps you lose weight, you can't just drink water and expect to lose a ton of weight but drinking 8 glasses of water a day, will flush out your system and keep the bad stuff out of the blood stream. The fact that your body is 75% water should help. Water also keeps your kidneys hydrated and that will lessen the chance for kidney stones. Water also keeps your skin hydrated so you won't have dry itchy skin.

Water can after a while be boring to drink and when that happens most people stop drinking it, to keep your water fun try adding a fresh lemon to it or try those fat free, sugar free mixes like Crystal Light. Even though water is pretty much tasteless it can be boring and then you get bored. Continue to drink water on a daily basis and you will see a difference in your skin and on your scale.

Dark Chocolates

Dark chocolate is also said to be a good choice of copper and magnesium which is essential in maintaining a regular heartbeat and maintain levels of a person's blood pressure. Eating a large amount of dark chocolate is not good for anyway in terms of fat and calories even though there is a great potential for it to be a health benefit anyway. Eating too much of anything is not a good thing.

Too much chocolate can also give you a soft of jolt because dark chocolate has caffeine in it. So they more you eat you may get that sugar chocolate rush a bit too much. But if taken in moderation, you will see the health benefits sooner rather than later. Too much of it will give you a belly ache and just the right amount may prevent you form having a heart attack

Balance is the key

Some people think that they can eat anything if they have a regular exercise program. The famous runner Jim Fix who wrote The Complete Book Of Running thought he could. In an interview with a newspaper he said that it he was not concerned about his diet because a running program of 10 miles a day would sufficiently burn up whatever he ate. He said for breakfast he had fried egg, sausage, fried potatoes, butter and cream-talk about cardiac disaster! As you may recall, Jim Fix died suddenly while on a daily run.

On the other hand, some folks watch their diet religiously but are rarely physically active. They eat grains, fruits and vegetables and know the latest nutrition facts, but they don't move their bodies. They approach doesn't work either. What does work is the balance of a healthy living style that includes a low fat way of eating and regular exercise. Balance is the key.

Building stronger leg and stronger hips through training

Falls are very dangerous as you get older. Can you prevent them? Yes, strength training helps you regain your balance after having been slightly knocked off center. Building stronger leg and stronger hips through strength training can postpone and possibly even preven these highly destructive falls. Strength training gives you more confidence, more control over your own body. With that, you have a less chance for injury and less chance for falls.

In one experiment that was done they took 10 people (average age 90) and had them do simple leg exercises three times a week over eight weeks. They not only built up their strength but saw improvement in their lives from moderate muscle pumping. They became more mobile, more flexible, and their walking speed noticeably improved. They had a doubling, even tripling of the muscle strength in their legs. Two of them threw away their canes!

If 90 years old were able to do strength training and benefit from it. Surely it will help you.

Few tips that may help keep your weight down

At buffet or dinner, fill your plate with fruits and vegetables. Then add very small portions of other foods. Be the last one in line to get your food, and then eat slowly. This way you won't finish eating before others and be tempted to go back for seconds.

First, put your food on your own plate and eat from that only. Don't hang around the food plate. Get involved in conversation and activities. Sip on a low calorie drink with lot's of ice all evening. Nibble on vegetables and not chips. Don't drink. Alcohol is high on calories.
