Nutritional Adjuncts to the Fat Soluble Vitamins A, D, and K

Posted by on Mar 18, 2013 in Nutrition | 0 comments

By Christopher Masterjohn The “K” in “vitamin K” stands for “koagulation,” the German word for blood clotting. From its discovery in the 1930s through the late 1970s, we knew of no other roles for the vitamin. The 1990s had come and nearly gone by the time awareness of its role in bone metabolism broke out of the confines of the vitamin K research community, and only in the twenty-first century has its role in preventing calcification of the blood vessels and other soft tissues become clear. Vitamin K2, found in animal fats and...

Turmeric, Bromelain, and Quercetin

Posted by on Sep 5, 2012 in Nutrition, Wellness | 0 comments

Do you like curry? If you do, and eat it regularly, you’re probably helping yourself more than you think. Most curries contain a spice called Turmeric. Turmeric is a plant from the ginger family. It is a native of southern and southeastern Asia and is typically produced as an antiaging agent in cosmetics, to protect food from sunlight, as a dye, as a spice or food additive in many recipes, and as a natural medicinal. Turmeric can be used as a natural anti-inflammatory without the common side effects of other NSAIDS. Its active ingredient,...

Organic Vs. Traditionally Grown Foods

Posted by on Jul 23, 2012 in Uncategorized | 0 comments

Growing health trends are pushing people to be more conscientious with the foods they’re choosing. Due to the inherent health risks associated with diets high in foods containing unacceptable levels of pesticides and other environmental toxins, people are looking for more natural and healthy alternatives. Due to increased demand, foods labeled “organic” are becoming far more common on our grocery store shelves than they once were. So what does it mean if a food is labeled as organic? Simply put, the “USDA Certified Organic” label...

Don’t Let Your Weight Manage You!

Posted by on Mar 23, 2012 in News Feed, Nutrition, Weight Loss, Wellness | 0 comments

Weight loss has become a 40 billion dollar a year business in America. People are constantly chasing the latest fad diet, or the newest extreme detox program, or even still, the latest and greatest work-out strategy. Here’s the bottom line people: if you utilize more calories than you take in, you will lose weight. If you take in more calories than you utilize, your body will convert these excess calories to body fat, and you will gain weight. To start out, let’s discuss some of the factors that regulate body weight. These factors include...

Adrenal Fatigue

Posted by on Mar 16, 2012 in News Feed, Nutrition, Wellness | 0 comments

The adrenal glands!!! Some would argue the most entertaining of all our glands! Really no one argues that. But they are interesting. The adrenal glands sit just on top of the kidneys. They secrete some really interesting hormones like cortisol (stimulates use of fat for energy production and regulates blood glucose levels, suppresses the immune system to fight inflammation) , aldosterone (regulates electrolytes in the blood-ex. salt), DHEA (a steroid precursor to estrogen and testosterone), and catecholamines. The outer layer or cortex...

Migraines…Not Just Your Average Headache!

Posted by on Feb 29, 2012 in Headache, News Feed, Nutrition, Wellness | 0 comments

There’s nothing quite so debilitating as a  headache right in the middle of a day that should have been productive. Your kids are screaming, or there’s work to be done, or you’re trying to sleep, and out of nowhere the headache bus takes a wrong turn and collides with your head. While average headaches can slow you down a bit, migraine headaches can stop you in your tracks and knock you straight onto your back. Roughly 23 percent of the American population suffer from migraine headache. The statistics say that migraines have a slightly...

Plantar Fasciitis

Posted by on Feb 21, 2012 in Foot Pain, News Feed, Wellness | 0 comments

Plantar Fasciitis is the inflammation and or micro tearing of the fascial complex on the plantar surface or bottom of the foot. Plantar Fasciitis commonly presents with pain in the affected heel or medial arch of the foot. These types of injuries usually occur due to overuse or faulty bio-mechanics of the ankle foot complex during the gait cycle. Custom made orthotic inserts have been shown to reduce the incidence of Plantar Fasciitis pain in the short-term. Orthotics help to correct  for over pronation and excessive supination of the foot....

Stress and Mindfulness

Overworked, underpaid, tired, irritable, worried, depressed, numb,speeding through our days on autopilot and STRESSED!!!!. Sound familiar? For many of us, this is a pretty accurate descriptor of the manor in which we pass our lives away. We find ourselves in survival mode, simply trying to make it through the next minute or hour. We are haunted by the memories of past mistakes and the hope or fear of a future that may or may not ever come. We spend our waking moments lost in our thoughts and unable to let go and awaken to the present moment....

Cardiovascular Health!

Posted by on Feb 2, 2012 in News Feed, Nutrition | 0 comments

In 2009 599,413 people died from heart disease. The next closest cause of mortality was cancer coming in at 567,628. Heart disease has been the number one cause of death in the United States for the past 8 decades. The only year that heart disease was not the number one killer was 1918, and that was due to a large-scale flu outbreak. Some common risk factors for cardiovascular disease are type 2 diabetes, hypertension and elevated LDL and VLDL, or low density lipoprotein and very low density lipoprotein respectively. Those are just fancy ways...

The Prevalence, the Signs, and the Symptoms of Vitamin D Deficiency

Posted by on Jan 31, 2012 in News Feed, Nutrition | 0 comments

Nearly 80% of people in the United States are Vitamin D deficient! So what is Vitamin D and why does it matter? Vitamin D is a fat soluble vitamin. Which means when we supplement with it, the body doesn’t absorb it unless its ingested with fats. Specifically 9 grams of fat. The same goes for Vitamins A,E and K. Vitamin D plays a vital role in the absorption and processing of Calcium and Phosphorus by the body. Vitamin D or lack thereof plays a role in bone integrity and formation, cardiovascular disease/ blood pressure, nervous system...

Sacroiliac Dysfunction

Posted by on Jan 24, 2012 in Back Pain, News Feed, Posture | 0 comments

Roughly 85 percent of the patients we see in our chiropractic office have some form of sacroiliac dysfunction. The sacroiliac joint  (SI for short) is a large series of ligaments between the triangular sacrum at the base of our spine and the ilium or pelvis. This joint is made of the sacrotuberous ligament, the sacrospinous ligament, the anterior sacroiliac ligament, the posterior sacroiliac ligament, and the interosseous sacroiliac ligament. Dysfunction or inflammation in this joint can manifest as low back pain, hip pain, groin pain,...

The Anti Inflammatory Diet – Part 1

Posted by on Jan 19, 2012 in News Feed, Nutrition | 0 comments

The standard American diet is, quite frankly, just awful. The average person in the US eats a diet rife with low nutrient content foods, processed foods, saturated fats, and refined sugars. Our poor dietary choices are reflected in the incidence of cancer, diabetes, autoimmune disease and heart disease in the general population. This brief article will discuss some of the finer points of the anti-inflammatory diet. We will also offer a few tips for those interested in implementing some new dietary changes. So first things first. What are omega...

The Anti-Inflammatory Diet – Part 2

Posted by on Jan 18, 2012 in News Feed, Nutrition | 0 comments

So now that we’ve talked a little about the role of omega 6’s and 3’s in our diet, lets discuss some more specific ideas about changing the way we eat. First and foremost we want to eat a diet rich in fruits and vegetables. A good rule of thumb is to eat a rainbow. In other words we want a wide variety of color in the fruits and vegetables that we eat. Green leafy  vegetables are a great way to start.  Greens are rich in iron, fiber, protein, vitamin K, lutein, and folate. Not to mention they have a lot of vitamin C. Other types of...

Do you have Neck Pain or Upper Back Pain? Do you work on a computer?

Posted by on Jan 5, 2012 in Neck Pain, News Feed, Posture | 0 comments

In today’s increasingly digital world unprecedented numbers of people are working in front of computers. Long hours of work, hunched over a desk, can wreak havoc on the body. Posturally, these types of activities can predispose us to muscular imbalance, neck pain, upper back pain, low back pain, sleep difficulty, headache, and over time, increased levels of degeneration in the spine and surrounding joints. So the question becomes, from the chiropractic perspective, what is the common presentation for the computer worker and how do we fix...

Gluten Sensitivity?

Posted by on Jan 2, 2012 in News Feed, Nutrition | 0 comments

Gluten intolerance and Celiac disease have recently been getting increased attention in the health media. Issues with gluten stem from the body’s inability to break down the the wheat protein gliadin. Reports state that in the last 60 years the incidence of gluten intolerance and Celiac disease has more than quadrupled. So why is that? The simple answer is that our wheat has been genetically modified from it original form so much so that the body now has greater difficulty processing the new structure and lectin content. Who doesn’t...

Dairy: Good or Bad?

Posted by on Sep 21, 2011 in News Feed, Nutrition | 0 comments

Dairy, we love it; especially cheese. But is it good for us past the infancy stage? The simple answer to that question is an emphatic no.  If we look at the natural world, most other infants are weaned off of milk with other foods. The milk digesting enzyme, lactase, disappears with maturity in the human population. The take home message here is that nutritionally, we don’t need it. The majority of dietary milk consumption is utilized for its calcium content.  Calcium is extremely important in the formation and maintenance of our bones and...

Core Stability

Posted by on Aug 24, 2011 in Back Pain, Neck Pain, News Feed | 0 comments

We hear a lot about core stability and strengthening the core these days. So why is it so important? The simple answer here is stability. The core musculature and fascia serve as a base point for the initiation of most, if not all, body motion. These tissues create an effective sleeve that limits the amount of motion in the spine. Really, too much of any thing isn’t good for us.  Excessive motion causes damage in tendons, ligaments, muscles, joints, bones and even potentially organs. Joints with too much motion become sloppy and degenerate...

Auto Injury

Posted by on Jul 7, 2011 in News Feed, Whiplash | 0 comments

A car accident occurs every 60 seconds in the United States, on average more than 5.25 million per year.  Of those 5.25 million accidents, more than 3 million of those result in injury, and half of those result in permanent impairment. Injuries resulting from auto accidents often go untreated or undiagnosed. Symptoms from an auto related injury often times do not manifest immediately within the body. They make take weeks, months or years to present in a way that is noticeable to the patient. People commonly present to our office following an...

I can’t say enough good things about Dr. Hedrick! As a former cage fighter with ALOT of old injuries, finding a good chiropractic doctor is a must and Dr. Hedrick fits that bill. He doesn’t just go from problem to problem, but treats the person as a whole, taking into consideration how one condition sometimes feeds into the other. Anyone from fighters, former fighters/athletes, or accident victims should seriously consider him. Frank M. Palatine, IL
