Thorburn Chiropractic & Wellness Center Adds Acupuncture Services With First Visit Discount

Greetings from Dr. Thorburn:

Beginning, Monday, November 30, acupuncturist Daphne Lim L.Ac. will be treating patients at Thorburn Chiropractic and Wellness Center.

Acupuncture involves gently inserting very fine needles in various places on the body to alleviate pain and to treat various conditions.   This form of Chinese medicine has been practiced for centuries.  It’s based on the theory that energy flows through and around your body along pathways.  Acupuncture unblocks the pathways and helps balance energy.

Daphne Lim L.Ac. is a board certified Acupuncturist and Herbalist who has been practicing in the Los Angeles area for several years. She uses acupuncture as a tool and guide to bring ease and attention to the places that need healing. She utilizes traditional forms of acupuncture, trigger point therapy, individualized herbal formulas, and more to support your health goals. Her expertise includes acupuncture to increase fertility and for facial rejuvenation.

Cosmetic acupuncture is an ancient beauty secret used to minimize fine lines and wrinkles.  Treatment results in healthy, glowing skin.   Increased collagen production nourishes, oxygenates, and moisturizes from the inside out.

We’re very excited about adding quality wellness services to our office, and to celebrate we’re offering a special introductory discount for your first acupuncture treatment.  The first visit is regularly $120, but through December 12, your first visit is only $79!  Call today to book your appointment, 818-841-1313.

And a reminder about Thanksgiving week hours…  We are open today (Monday, November 23) and Wednesday, November 25 from 9:00 am – 6:00 pm, closed for lunch from 1:30 – 3:00 pm both days.  We will be closed Friday, November 27 and Saturday, November 28 so that our staff can spend the Thanksgiving holiday weekend with their friends and family.

Until next time…

Yours in health,

Dr. T

Kid’s Day, Featuring FREE Children’s Exams, Saturday, December 12 Benefiting Toys for Tots

Posted on

Greetings from Dr. Thorburn:

On Saturday, December 12, from 9:00 am – 12 noon, it’s Kid’s Day at Thorburn Chiropractic & Wellness Center!  We will be offering FREE Chiropractic exams for children from infant up to the age of 12.  We request that parents accompanying their children to Kid’s Day bring a new, unwrapped toy to donate to the Marine’s annual Toys for Tots campaign.

Many people mistakenly think the only reason to visit a doctor of Chiropractic is for a bad back, but as millions of parents know, Chiropractic care has many benefits for children. Chiropractic care can help to heal common problems such as ear infections, colic, colds, fevers, sore throats, bed-wetting, asthma and allergies. Chiropractic care is effective in treating many learning and behavioral problems, and promotes general wellness and prevention.

We offer the gift of good health to your child, and we encourage you to bring a holiday gift for a child in need.  Please call our office to make an appointment, and feel free to share this with your friends and family.

Our November monthly special is 20% off our complete line of digestive products, including Enzycore, Multizyme and Zypan.   Since digestive challenges can center around enzyme imbalances, adding additional enzymes through whole food supplements can assist the body’s digestion and contribute to overall good health.  Stay healthy and feel great throughout the holiday season with a well-balanced digestive tract!

And a reminder about Thanksgiving week hours…  Book your Thanksgiving week appointments early!  We will be open Monday, November 23 and Wednesday, November 25 from 9:00 am – 6:00 pm, closed for lunch from 1:30 – 3:00 pm both days.  We will be closed Friday, November 27 and Saturday, November 28 so that our staff can spend the Thanksgiving holiday weekend with their friends and family.

 

Until next time…

Pumpkin – a Nutritional Powerhouse

Posted on

Greetings from Dr. Thorburn:

The bright orange color of pumpkin is a giveaway that it’s loaded with an important antioxidant, beta-carotene. Beta-carotene is one of the plant carotenoids converted to vitamin A in the body. In the conversion to vitamin A, beta carotene performs many important functions in overall health.

Pumpkin is also an anti-inflammatory food.  This means that it helps with joint health, organ health, stress relief and soft tissue injuries.

The high level of Vitamin C in pumpkin helps the immune system and encourages collagen production for the skin to maintain its glow and elasticity.

Pumpkin is a great source of fiber and helps wash out any toxins and keeps your body running smoothly.

Now doesn’t this make you want to eat some pumpkin?

Here’s a recipe for a delicious, nutritious seasonal pumpkin and protein shake you can have for breakfast or a midday pick-me-up.

Pumpkin Pie Protein Shake

Ingredients

  • ½  cup coconut milk
  • ¼ cup water
  • 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ½ cup canned pumpkin

Optional Ingredients

  • 2 rounded scoops SP Complete*
  • 2 rounded scoops Whey Pro Complete*

Directions

Blend ingredients together until smooth.  Enjoy!

*These two ingredients are high-quality whole food nutritional products from Standard Process available at Thorburn Chiropractic and Wellness Center.

Our November monthly special is 20% off our complete line of digestive products, including Enzycore, Multizyme and Zypan.   Since digestive challenges can center around enzyme imbalances, adding additional enzymes through whole food supplements can assist the body’s digestion and contribute to overall good health.  Stay healthy and feel great throughout the holiday season with a well-balanced digestive tract!

Until next time…

The Secret to Happy Holidays – Good Digestion!

Posted on

Greetings from Dr. Thorburn:

Digestion is the process of converting the food we eat into substances we can use on a cellular level.  Did you know that over 70 percent of your immune system is in your digestive track?   This makes healthy digestion a key element in your overall wellness.

While the tendency is to overindulge during the upcoming holiday season, here are six simple steps you can take for better digestive health:

  1. Chew your food.  Chewing your food well allows your saliva to start breaking down the food for smoother digestion.
  2. Handle stress.  When you’re stressed, the fight-or-flight reaction begins and digestion slows.  Your body shuts down blood flow, which affects digestive muscles.  Take time to relax, breathe deeply, and let go of the stresses in your life.
  3. Get regular exercise.  When you exercise, you support the muscles of your intestines, which maintain regularity.  Exercise helps to reduce stress, supporting healthy digestion.
  4. Take supplements.  I can recommend supplements targeted to your personal needs.  From enzymes to probiotics, we have a full range of food-based nutritional products to support your digestive health.
  5. Stay hydrated.  Drinking pure, fresh water supports regularity and the health of the digestive systems.
  6. Eat more fiber.  Eat a well-balanced diet, and avoid processed foods, sugars and highly refined carbohydrates.  Fiber-rich foods are excellent for digestion.

Our November monthly special is 20% off our complete line of digestive products, including Enzycore, Multizyme and Zypan.   Since digestive challenges can center around enzyme imbalances, adding additional enzymes through whole food supplements can assist the body’s digestion and contribute to overall good health.  Stay healthy and feel great throughout the holiday season with a well-balanced digestive tract!

Until next time…
