Thorburn Chiropractic & Wellness Center and the Spirit of Giving

Posted on

Greetings from Dr. Thorburn:

At Thorburn Chiropractic & Wellness Center, we’re celebrating Christmas by supporting the Salvation Army’s Angel Tree program and the Farm Worker’s Education Christmas program. You can feel great by helping others this holiday season!

The spirit of giving is the very essence of the season and there are always people in need who will appreciate the kindness of receiving. This is the 17th year that Thorburn Chiropractic & Wellness Center has supported charitable holiday giving.  We encourage everyone to think of others during this special time.

The Salvation Army’s Angel Tree program provides new clothing or toys for children of families in need through the support of donors. We have angel tags available at our office with the first name, age, and gender of a child in need of presents. Contributors may take one or more tags and purchase appropriate gifts for the child or children described on the tags.

Unwrapped toys for children of all ages are also being collected by Thorburn Chiropractic for a Christmas party for over 200 children of farm workers through the Farm Worker’s Education Christmas program.

Please decide which program you will be supporting soon as the deadline for dropping off Angel Tree gifts is December 7. The deadline for turning in the Farm Worker’s Education Christmas toys is December 10.

Thank you, and from everyone at Thorburn Chiropractic & Wellness Center, have a very happy and healthy holiday season!

Happy Thanksgiving Recipe & Holiday Hours

Posted on Updated on

Greetings from Dr. Thorburn:

Thanksgiving is just around the corner – next Thursday to be exact – and I wanted to share a light, delicious gluten-free, dairy-free dessert recipe.

Pumpkin Souffle
4 eggs, whites and yolks separated
1 cup roasted fresh pumpkin or canned pumpkin
¼ cup pure maple syrup or sweetener of choice
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
pumpkin pie seasoning to taste
2 teaspoons coconut oil for greasing

Instructions
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Whip egg whites only until peaks form. Mix together the yolks, pumpkin, maple syrup, vanilla and pumpkin pie spice until well blended. Once peaks form with the egg whites, gently incorporate the pumpkin/yolk mixture. It’s very important not to over mix. Fold the combined egg mixture into a well-greased souffle dish, pie dish or small ramekins. Bake until mixture is cooked through and top is golden brown, 20-25 minutes. Serve warm or chilled.

Could SAD Give You Diabetes?

Posted on

Greetings from Dr. Thorburn:

Could the SAD – Standard American Diet – lead to type 2 diabetes?

SAD is characterized by a diet high in meats especially lunch-type meats, milk-based foods (cheese yogurt, cottage cheese, etc.) potatoes, prepared foods, fried foods and sweets.

In contrast, a healthy, nutritious diet has high levels of colorful fruits and vegetables, good fats (avocados, olive oil, nuts), limited eggs, poultry and fish, and plenty of pure, fresh water.

So, of course, the SAD diet could — and often does – lead Americans to a diagnosis of type 2 diabetes. If you are predisposed to diabetes by family history it is essential that you reduce the sugar load on your body so your pancreas can survive.

Type 2 diabetes used to be called adult-onset diabetes because it was typically seen after the age of forty. Did you know that this disease is being diagnosed in children as young as elementary school age? Our diets and computer lifestyles are creating serious health problems.

You can reduce your risk of developing diabetes by making a few changes on a gradient basis.

  1. Get moving – walking bicycling, swimming – any activity that gets you moving.
  2. Eliminate soda.
  3. Eliminate high-fructose corn syrup.
  4. Get a Glycemic index chart. It tells you what foods convert into high blood sugar easily. Avoid those foods with a high Gylcemic index.
  5. Reduce breads, rice and rice cakes, pasta, sweets, and fruit juice.
  6. Eat five real servings of fresh vegetables daily.
  7. Increase the good fats – olive oil, avocados, and nuts.
  8. Do not eat anything hydrogenated (foods that have been altered to become more solid-margarine, shortening). Read labels.

You do not need to develop this disease and by doing the things that reduce stress on your pancreas you can avoid it. We can check your body for signs of pancreatic stress and help you fight back against this health-robber!

November special…We have an excellent 10-Day Blood Sugar Support Program which can naturally encourage the healing process for the organs involved in processing sugars in the body. This program includes a daily nutrition shake, a gentle cleansing supplement, a supplement that encourages healthy blood sugar metabolism and an herbal product that helps maintain blood sugar balance when combined with a healthy diet.

Really? Type 2 Diabetes Can Be Fixed?

Posted on

Greetings from Dr. Thorburn:

Many chronic health conditions can be helped by chiropractic care. This includes the all-too-common problem of type 2 diabetes. The fact that type 2 diabetes can be fixed may seem unlikely until you understand better how the body works in a holistic sense.

Diabetes occurs when blood glucose (sugar) levels rise and maintain higher than normal. This is also called hyperglycemia. Type 2 diabetes is the most common form of diabetes. If you have type 2 diabetes your body does not use insulin properly, which is called insulin resistance. At first, your pancreas makes extra insulin to make up for it. But over time it isn’t able to keep up and can’t make enough insulin to maintain your blood glucose at normal levels.

It’s a scientific fact that your nervous system (brain, spinal cord, and nerves) control every single thing about your body. This ranges from breathing, blood flow, digestion, energy level, to all organ functions, including the pancreas.

Your nerves can become chafed, stretched, compressed, or irritated where they exit the spine due to a vertebra moving out of place. When this happens, the nerve shuts down and certain organs can then work overtime or become weakened and your health suffers. So the first line of defense for chiropractic care and diabetes is identifying which vertebrae are out of alignment and correcting the issue.

At the heart of resolving diabetes is the body healing and producing its hormone insulin and other factors, naturally and normally. By correctly nourishing the organs involved with sugar regulation through tailor-picked organic supplements, in many cases, the organs can heal. It may take a bit of courage to take the next step toward real health, but you will enjoy the results!

More and more people are choosing chiropractic care first — before medicine and surgery. It is safe, natural, and works with your body to create optimum health.
