2013 Brain Awareness Week Chiappino
Greetings!


The last of the snow is finally melting.. let's hope it's a good sign that the wild winter weather is behind us and that spring may soon be on its way.

March is National Nutrition Month. Go high tech this year...get the whole family involved in the quest for proper nutrition with the help of some handy food apps that are both fun and educational!

Brain Awareness Week is March 11-17. A well balanced diet, chiropractic care, massage, and exercise all help to maintain a healthy brain. In addition, neurofeedback is an excellent therapy to condition the brain for peak performance and retrain abnormal brain waves that underlie a host of brain-based disorders. Check out Chris' story below on how BrainCore helped her become ADHD med-free.

In recognition of Brain Awareness Week, we are offering $50 off a QEEG brain map for the month of March--please mention this newsletter when booking your appointment.

Wishing you a healthy, happy spring!

A study published in Journal of Virology reveals that annual vaccinating against the Influenza A virus weakens immunity to other viruses.

In addition, the Center for Disease Control (CDC)reports that the vaccine was only 9% effective in people 65 and older.
