Happy August!

What's on your summer bucket list?

The final countdown to summer's end has begun, but there's still plenty of time to take advantage of all that our beautiful island has to offer.

If a good stretch is what your body craves, why not try an outdoor or beach yoga class? How about a day of exploring one of our many nature preserves and hiking trails. Or, maybe a free outdoor concert is just the thing to kick back and unwind.

Whatever your choice, we hope you make time in your busy schedule to create great summertime memories with the ones you love. We'll be doing just that from August 17th-24th, so please schedule accordingly. Massage and acupuncture services will still be available while we are gone.

Enjoy the remaining weeks of summer 2014!

Tylenol During Pregnancy Linked to Poor Gross Motor Development
Study also notes 70% increase in behavior problems at age three
pills3.jpg

An estimated 65% of women take Tylenol for headache, back pain or fever during their pregnancy. However, a recent Norwegian study sends up a red flag, suggesting that that the drug is not as harmless as once believed.

Study results revealed that acetaminophen, the active ingredient in Tylenol, produced adverse developmental outcomes in the children of mothers who frequently used the drug during pregnancy.

Researchers found that Tylenol-exposed children tended to walk later, have poorer communication and language skills, as well as behavioral issues at age three.

Avoiding all possible neurotoxins is critical during pregnancy to protect the health of your child. Gentle chiropractic care provides a holistic, non-drug and non-invasive means of relieving sciatica, lower back pain, carpal tunnel syndrome, shoulder tension, headaches and other conditions associated with pregnancy. In addition, chiropractic care has been shown to significantly reduce the length of labor by up to 50%.

Are you expecting? Come in for a prenatal chiropractic visit this month and you'll receive a complimentary medical massage! You must book your appointment by August 31st. Call 631.265.1223.

The Skinny on Fats

Are you eating enough fat to keep your mind and body healthy? Do you know which fats are beneficial to your health?

Essential fatty acids (EFAs) are the good dietary fats that help the brain fire information efficiently from synapse to synapse. EFAs are particularly beneficial for children and adults with learning disabilities and attention deficit and hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). They help the brain cells send and receive messages, enabling the brain to operate efficiently. Docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), found in fish seeds and nuts, is another important essential fat that has been shown to be beneficial to those with ADHD. Incorporating these healthy fats into your meals can significantly improve focus and behavioral issues.

If you are struggling to keep an ADHD child on track or your family healthy, our holistic health coach Lety Algeri can help you make diet modifications that will appeal to your family's taste buds and make a positive impact on their overall health. Contact Lety at 631.806.9259
