Springtime is upon us! The time of year for new beginnings and to plant the seeds for future harvest. I believe that cultivating our health is a lot like gardening. Just as plants, flowers and crops need healthy soil, PLUS additional plant food nutrients to flourish, our bodies must be "fertilized" by eating well PLUS supplementing with specific nutrients to achieve optimal health.
As Shakespeare wrote in Othello, "Our bodies are like gardens and our willpower is like the gardener. Depending on what we plant-weeds or lettuce, or one kind of herb rather than a variety, the garden will either be barren and useless, or rich and productive."
Well said Shakespeare! This statement applies not only to what we eat and what supplements we take, but applies to how we think, and how we live as a whole. My favorite patients are those who value optimal health as a lifestyle choice and see their body as an instrument to becoming a 'richer and more productive' person. With this mindset, they engage in proper lifestyle habits and enroll me as their Wellness coach.
Most of you reading this, are exactly that type of patient. So with Spring upon us, I hope you are ready to bloom by getting plenty of rest, practicing stress reducing techniques, exercising regularly and taking your supplements. If not, remember we are here to help and that the health of your spine is directly related to your overall health!
Until our next adjustment....
Yours in health,
Dr. Heidi & The InnerMovement Wellness Team

CHIROPRACTIC BEATS MEDS IN TREATING NECK PAIN
Do you or someone you love suffer from neck pain? If so, we've got good news for you! Research shows that Chiropractic was more effective than medication in both the short and long term treatment of neck pain. A study published in the Jan. 3, 2012 issue of the research journal Annals of Internal Medicine suggests spinal manipulation is more effective than over-the-counter and prescription medication for relieving acute neck pain.
The study involved 272 adults ages 18-65 with neck pain of lasting 2 to 12 weeks. Spinal manipulation was provided courtesy of a doctor of chiropractic. As an alternative to Chiropractic care, some patients in the study group received medication as monitored by a licensed medical physician. Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), acetaminophen (aspirin), or both served as the first line of pharmacological therapy and those patients who did not respond to or could not tolerate these drugs, narcotic medications and muscle relaxants were prescribed.
The results? "Participants who received medication seemed to fare worse, with a consistently higher use of pain medications for neck pain throughout the trial's observational period," said the study authors. In other words, Chiropractic was a much better choice than medication for neck pain.
Interestingly enough, a third group of patients who received home exercise advice instead of chiropractic care or medication also fared better than the medication group during the study period. That means two forms of conservative, drug-free care - both of which are commonly provided by doctors of Chiropractic - were more effective than over-the-counter and/or prescription drugs.
So remember that the solution to neck pain doesn't lie in a bottle, it's in the trusted hands of your Chiropractor.

Recipe of the Month
Local Honey is believed to prevent the symptoms of seasonal allergies as it exposes you to small amounts of allergens to help your body build immunity. When bees pollinate to make honey, they bring back allergens from the flowers, trees, and other plants. This leaves small traces of those allergens in their honey.
It is best to find raw honey that is as close to home as possible because it is far more likely to contain the same allergens that you are exposed to on a daily basis. The honey should be raw, unpasteurized, and unheated for best results.
There are many other health benefits to consuming raw honey. It has been proven that raw honey has many antibiotic properties and it is known to prevent the formation of ulcers, and certain kinds of cancer. So, as you can see, trying raw local honey to treat your allergies certainly would not hurt, in fact, it could help you with a number of other ailments. The best part, there are virtually no side effects, unless you are allergic. (Children under the age of 1 should not consume raw honey.)

Testimonial by InnerMovement Patient Jani T.
"I've been going to Dr. Heidi for at least 5 or 6 years. I mean religiously on regular basis. I had so many problems with my neck, hands, joints and etc. and every time I go to her, I come out with the same belief that Dr. Heidi is extremely knowledgeable about human health and body, very educated and mostly that she is equipped with a God given gift. God bless you Dr. Heidi.
Besides her excellent service, I can say that Dr. Broosan is also very good on what he does. I see him whenever Dr. Heidi is not available just because she knows my body better than I do.
Office staff is always courteous, nice, kind and efficient. I know Flora for as long as I've been going to Dr. Heidi and I haven't seen anything but top of the line service from her.
I see Victoria for massage and I just love love her technique. Every time I go to her, I leave like a new person. It's the only thing that helps my tense muscles and prevents me from going to doctor's offices for relief. It's preventive service for all kinds of aches and pains.
I just love Inner movement Chiropractic services. Top of the line! Don't take my word for it, just give them a try. Won't regret!"
