INSOMNIA...Are you reading this at 2:00am?

If you are reading this at 2:00am, you may have insomnia. Up to 40% of Americans report at least occasional insomnia, and of those, 20% have severe insomnia. Almost one third of adults have frequent trouble sleeping. Insomnia is the inability to get the amount of sleep you need (trouble falling asleep, trouble staying asleep, waking too early, or some combination of these) plus feeling terrible the next day (sleepy, tired, irritable). Insomnia affects the quality of life as well as causing serious health problems such as decreased immune response, depression, and anxiety to start. People with insomnia will have a much harder time functioning during the day then do people that have gotten adequate sleep. While it is true that our sleep needs are individual, sleep is essential to daily living as well as to repair and restore the body. Insomnia is not a disease or a diagnosis but it is recognized as a "major health problem". It is a symptom of something else. The important thing is to determine and then help the specific underlying cause (s). There are many causes of insomnia but the main ones include nervous system imbalance, glands that are exhausted (thyroid and adrenal), and nutritional deficiencies. Most cases of insomnia will resolve when one or more of these conditions are handled. Please help someone (or your self,) with insomnia. Ask our staff for a complimentary card that entitles the bearer to a Chiropractic Examination* or a Nutritional Response Test* to determine the cause of insomnia today!

*Offer good for new chiropractic or nutrition patients only.

Did You Know...Study finds: Chiropractors don't raise stroke risks! (we knew that!)
Keeping you informed!
A report published in the "Spine Journal," confirms what chiropractors have said for years: chiropractic care does NOT cause an increased risk of strokes. Frank Silver, researcher and professor of medicine at the University of Toronto, states, "We didn't see any increased association between chiropractic care and usual physician care, and the stroke.

Condition of the Week: Knee Pain
Help someone today who has Knee Pain!
Knee pain can be caused by muscle imbalance, repetitive strain and injury to the muscles, ligaments and cartiledge surrounding the knee. A thorough exam can reveal the cause of your pain. Don't be surprised if the doctor examines your lower back at the some time he examines your knee. Pressure on the nerves in your lower back can be the cause of weakness and or pain in your knee, allowing it to become more easily injured. Chiropractic care can be very successful in relieving and correcting these painful and disabling conditions.

Nutrition Myths---Don't Be Fooled
Myth #4---Avoid Coffee and Caffeine
It is a myth that coffee and caffeine products contribute to serious health conditions such as cancer and heart disease. According to Harvard researcher Walter Willet, recent developer of the new Food Pyramid, people who drink coffee in moderation are doing little to contribute to their cancer and heart disease risk. He states that they may even be getting some benefits. While it is true that too much caffeine can have a powerful effect on your ability to sleep, increases anxiety, irritability and headaches, coffee drinkers have fewer kidney and gallstones and a 50% lower suicide rate than non-coffee drinkers.
