Osteoporosis: To Drug or Not to Drug – That is the Question

Posted on

Greetings from Dr. T:

On Wednesday, May 6, from 6:30 – 7:30 p.m., I will be presenting a free and informative talk, Osteoporosis: To Drug or Not to Drug – That is the Question.

Osteoporosis is a common bone condition that makes bones thinner and more fragile because of reduced bone density, and it puts people at risk of fractures, especially of the hip, spinal vertebrae and wrist.

Do you already have osteoporosis? Are you at risk? How do you get tested, and then what? There are simple things you can do – from diet and supplements to exercise – that can help build up your bones and lower your chances of falling and causing painful bone fractures. I will explain what causes this condition and simple steps you can take towards your own healing.

To reserve your free seat at the talk, call Thorburn Chiropractic and Wellness Center at 818-841-1313. Bring a friend!

Until next time…

Yours in health,

Dr. T

Celebrate Earth Day Starting with You!

Greetings from Dr. T:

You can take steps towards making the world a healthier place by changing the part of the world you live in – starting with reducing chemicals in and around your body.

Here’s some easy ways to get started:

• What kind of deodorant do you use? If it contains aluminum, change to one that is natural and aluminum-free. Aluminum has been associated with a variety of health issues including breast cancer, Alzheimer’s disease and kidney problems. It entirely stops perspiration, which is a necessary body function.

• Take a look at your personal care products – skin care, hair care, make-up – and find out what is in them. Gradually replace those that contain toxic chemicals with natural, organic products.

• Switch your household cleaning products to Amway LOC (Liquid Organic Cleaner) or another organic, nontoxic cleaner.

• Use low suds detergents for your clothes washer. Only wash full loads.

• California is in a serious drought. Use the timer on your cell phone and see how long it takes for your typical shower. Work towards cutting your shower time down to three minutes.

• Use natural, non-drug pain killers, nasal sprays, sleep aides, etc.

• Change your vitamins to nutrients that have no synthetic ingredients. At Thorburn Chiropractic & Wellness Center, we have a full line of food based nutritional products, so ask us about them during your next visit.

Until next time…

Yours in health,

Why Your Baby Needs to be Seen by a Chiropractor

Posted on

Greetings from Dr. T:

You may read the above statement and ask, why would a baby need a chiropractor – they are too young to have back pain!

If you think of chiropractic as only a pain-relief profession, you will think that a baby going to a chiropractor is quite silly. However, if you understand what chiropractic is truly about, you will realize that your child has a spine and it is important to keep that spine healthy so that the nervous system within it is healthy, too.

Your nervous system controls all body parts and functions. In order for you to be healthy, your body must be able to regulate itself and communicate well with itself. The nervous system is the body’s communication system and it must be healthy in order for you to be healthy.

When a bone in the spine shifts a little out of place, pressure is placed upon a spinal nerve and the nerve’s ability to work is reduced by 60% or more! These shifts of the spine are not usually painful so we do not know that they are there and so do not treat them. If left untreated by a chiropractor, the body part connected to that nerve will not be able to work correctly and will become unhealthy.

A baby’s spine can become slightly misaligned during delivery — especially difficult labor or delivery –- or from being pulled on, from falls, etc. Why let a child suffer with a misalignment and the resulting ill health when it is very easy to get them checked and treated?

You cannot tell if your child has misalignments based on pain, symptoms or how they look. It must be checked by us. Babies are easy to treat. The treatment is very gentle and they love it!

Until next time…
