Dr. Ellie’s Health Tips:

Health Tip of the Month: Nuts to you!!! According to Mercola.com (the world’s largest natural health website), people who ate at least 1/3 oz of nuts per day had an average 23 percent reduced risk of death due to cancer, diabetes, respiratory and neurodegenerative disease during a decade –long study. Previous research found that eating nuts at least five times a week lead to a 29 percent reduction in mortality risk due to heart disease; a 24 percent reduction for respiratory disease; and an 11 percent reduction for cancer. Most nuts’ nutritional makeup closely resemble an ideal ration of the basic building blocks- fat making up the greatest amount, followed by a moderate amount of protein and a low amount of non-vegetable carbs. The healthiest nuts to eat are raw almonds (with skin on), macadamia nuts, walnuts, Brazil nuts, pine nuts, pecans, pistachio, hazelnuts and cashews.

Thought for the Month: Vitamin K2 is every bit as important as vitamin D for protecting your heart and bone health; it’s essential for activating enzymes involved in transporting calcium from your arterial walls to your bone.

Chiropractic Thought for the Month: A case study published on July 17, 2014, in the Journal of Pediatric, Maternal & Family Health documented chiropractic care helping a 9-year-old girl who was suffering from chronic ear infections, neck pain, headaches and hearing loss. The study records that over the first three weeks of chiropractic care, the girl did not experience a single headache. After three weeks of chiropractic care, she was brought to an otolaryngologist for reevaluation. It was found that her hearing level had returned to 95% of normal. As a result of these profound improvements surgery scheduled for tympanostomy tubes was considered unnecessary, and the procedure was cancelled. “Numerous studies have identified positive outcomes in otitis media with chiropractic care based on the detection and removal of subluxation,” the study concludes. “This case study demonstrated a total remission of chronic ear infections in a girl under chiropractic care.”
