Snot Cute?

Snot!

Back to school season is GROSS!  All the kids are mingling together and sharing loads of new germs around school.  It’s likely you have a running nose, or a sneezy, snotty kid on your hands!

If you take a look at what’s in the tissue you will have a load of information on how to help your child ease the back to school symptoms.

If mucus is green its a sign that there could be bacterial infection.

Brown or yellow indicates a viral infection

Clear indicates a sign of allergy or viral infection

For a dry nose, or a constant picker it could mean there is a parasitic problem.

 

Now, eliminating the problem of a funny acting nose can be treated properly.  Dr John can help you navigate a snot problem, or a back to school stress problem.

 

There is a lot to do around supporting kids through this time. You can offer a drink of herbal tea that boosts immunity, and calms the system, like chamomile or lemon balm.  Make sure they get enough sleep, and cut back on refined sugars and juices. Getting loads of exercise when they aren’t in school will boost immunity, improve sleep, and help their brains perform better on tests.

 

We want to ensure that you are doing everything you can for your kids health, and we have lots of ways to help you here!

Overwhelm and Stress

How is Stress affecting you?

Emotional stress, physical stress, and spiritual stress can all contribute to leaving you feeling overwhelmed, and spent. Stress is an ever evolving system response to the changing stimulus of our environment.  We can feel stressed by our jobs, personal conflicts, project deadlines, demands of time or money. It may surprise you that the feelings of stress may have nothing to do with the stress in your life.  Poor posture, prolonged sitting, and accident, or an old injury can all lead to spinal stress. Chronic pain and muscle tension can cause you to experience nervousness and irritability,or nervousness and irritability can cause chronic pain and muscle tension.  We can help you unravel this catch 22.

Chiropractic care can help give your nervous system a greater capacity to adapt to stress. Like a vacation, in just a 15 minute appointment.  Chiropractic can be similar to exercise by reducing tension in the nervous system, improving your ability to tolerate and adapt to the stresses of modern life. We seem to exhibit stress and strain in the weakest area of our bodies. That area will be the first to go, like the weakest link in a chain. Finding the weak links in your spine and helping restore better function, can make a profound difference in your response to stress. Stress can show up as an upset stomach, recurring headaches, back pain, or muscle stiffness. Others may have nervous twitches, allergic reactions, or chemical sensitivities. Regardless of how your body responds to stress, your nervous system is involved, which is why chiropractic is such an important adjunct to your busy life.

The chiropractic approach to stress is to help normalize the function of your nervous system by removing interferences caused by spinal joint dysfunction.
