Adirondack MountainsHEALTHY TIP: EAT STRAWBERRIES TO RELIEVE RHEUMATOID ARTHRITIS - Strawberries are packed with vitamin C. People on diets high in naturally occurring vitamin C have been shown to have significantly decreased symptoms of RA and/or fewer flare-ups. It is important to note that some studies have shown an increase in RA symptoms in people taking large amounts of Vitamin C supplements, another reason it is beneficial to get our nutrients naturally from our food. Strawberries are also an excellent source of phenols, nutrients which have been shown to have heart protecting, cancer fighting benefits. It is the perfect time of year to enjoy naturally ripened strawberries, which will have the highest amount of these phytonutrients.

MFR (Myofascial Release) is a form of structural bodywork which combines stretching and pressure to the fascia (connective tissue) and muscles to relieve chronic pain and tension, and allow the muscles to return to their correct position, length and function.  This is very slow-paced work, often accompanied by a release of stored memories and emotions. MFR can help promote relaxation and reduce stress. Removing fascial restrictions also aides the body to function at peek efficiency Along with treatments, patients will learn valuable self-treatment techniques and a better sense of being "in" their bodies to help them maintain progress between sessions and take more control of their own good health.
