PMS

Vitamins – Are You Wasting Your Money?

Posted on

Greetings from Dr. Thorburn:

The New Year is upon us, a time when many people are motivated by the sense of new beginnings to launch their long-desired quest towards better health.  Whatever your personal health goals may be, adding one or more high-quality whole food supplements that your body truly needs to your daily regime can make a huge difference in your overall well-being.

Certain whole food supplements also have a healing effect. Do you have frequent headaches?  Stomach problems? PMS?  Allergies?  Rashes?  Trouble sleeping?  These and many other chronic issues are often alleviated with targeted nutrition.

Nutrition Deficiency Testing (NDT) is a non-invasive means of testing the body to determine the underlying causes of health issues. When these are corrected through safe nutritional means, the body often can repair and rebuild itself.

We are now also offering Science Based Nutrition lab work, including hair analysis, to help determine your nutritional needs. Combining this with NDT gives you the best chance to heal and save money by taking only the supplements you really need.

At Thorburn Chiropractic and Wellness Center, we have a full line of whole food supplements that we highly recommend.  Call our office to make your first appointment for NDT and Science Based Nutrition lab work and get started on a healthier you!

Through January 31, 2017, enjoy a healthy discount on all of our premier detox programs! Detoxing isn’t the same as fasting.  During a detox, you replace unhealthy food and drink with nutritious ones that have a cleansing and healing effect on certain conditions. With all of these programs, you will be enjoying delicious, healthy foods, whole food shakes, and taking whole food supplements.

First is our Blood Sugar 10-Day Program, regularly $152, now only $122.  Lab tests have proven participant’s blood sugar readings come down to normal levels on this program. Second is our Female Vitality 10-Day Program, regularly $144 – $187, now only $112 – $150 (depending upon if you are pre or post menopause).  Getting your hormones under control can make you feel more energetic, calm, alive, and happy.  Monthly hormonal fluctuations can lead to mood swings, hot flashes, cramps, fatigue, food cravings, poor sleep, and irritability.  The third is our Inflammation 10-Day Program, regularly $146, now just $117. Inflammation can be obvious when you have pain. Or perhaps you have been told that you have an inflammatory condition. Inflammation can be the source of fatigue, skin problems, joint stiffness, dark circles under the eyes, sinus congestion, irregular bowel, bloating, and water retention.  Our 21-Day Purification Program is also on sale through the end of January.  The regular price is $222, now only $178.  This great general cleanse relieves the body of toxins, inflammation, and pain while promoting better sleep and increased energy levels.

Ask us about any of these highly-effective programs to get you on the road towards a healthier New Year!

Until next time…

Yours in health,

Dr. T

PMS – A Natural Approach

Posted on

Greetings from Dr. Thorburn:

Ahhhh those pesky hormones! How many ways can we be affected by them when they go astray?

Premenstrual Syndrome (PMS) often occurs when the hormones are not in balance. Symptoms may include acne, swollen breasts, bloating, mood swings, sleep disturbances, headache, backache, appetite changes, aches and pains, irritability, anxiety and probably a few more unpleasant things. Many women experience such symptoms a week or so before their menstrual cycle.

I do not believe that we were designed to suffer. When we do suffer, there may be natural ways to get things back into balance so the body can heal and regulate itself. There are lifestyle habits one should develop that will help get the hormones balanced, including:

  • Exercise two and a half hours a week
  • Avoid salt, sugar, alcohol, caffeine and chemicals in food
  • Get eight hours sleep each night (yes, you can do it!)
  • Eat lots of vegetables and some fruits

Acupuncture can also help with some of the symptoms of PMS. We have an excellent acupuncturist on staff here in our center.

There are various vitamins and supplements that can help with PMS symptoms including calcium, magnesium, B vitamins, vitamin E, essential fatty acids, black cohosh, chasteberry, evening primrose oil, and more.

But how do you know which ones to take and when?

You could experiment for a few years trying to find the right combination…or you can make an appointment with me for Nutrition Deficiency Testing so we can find the organs of the body that need support so you can heal yourself.

Give your body what it needs and wants so you can feel great again!

This is Beach Week!… Just a reminder that through Saturday, September 3 we are celebrating Beach Week. Come “Hang Ten” with us and enjoy fun, free snacks and drinks, beach music, and more. Tell your friends and family about our New Patient Special. Only during Beach Week, new patients without chiropractic coverage get their first visit for $29 cash, a $177 value! (Those with health insurance pay their usual co-pay as required by their health insurance.)  Every time you refer a new person to us during Beach Week, you will enter our drawing for a one-hour massage and a month supply of our organic multivitamin. There’s no limit to how many times you can refer and enter! Drawing will be held on Saturday, September 3 and you don’t need to be present to win.

Closed for Labor Day….Just a reminder that next Monday, September 5, is Labor Day and we will be closed in observance of the holiday. We are open regular hours through the end of this week – today — Wednesday, August 31and Friday, September 2 from 9:00 am – 6:00 pm closed for lunch from 1:30 – 3:00 pm plus Saturday, September 3 from 9:00 am – 12 noon.

Until next time….

Yours in health,
