Your Health and Wellness: Speed Walking for Weight Loss and Beyond

Posted by Carlson on Sep 7, 2017 6:26:52 PM

Speed walking is a general term for just walking fast. While some think that running is your best option, walking is an incredibly healthy solution people of every age and fitness level can enjoy.

Most start speed walking for weight loss, but the health benefits can be realized even without changing the number on the scale. If your goal includes losing a few pounds be sure to change up your walking routines and speeds. Your week should consist of short and long walks at interval speeds. The one thing people forget to add to this regimen is one day of weight training. Mixing up your walking not only builds your aerobic capacity but it also can keep you from becoming bored - which is the enemy of healthy habits. If you've already committed to an improved diet, walking can transform your efforts into sustainable weight loss. (If your diet is less than great, be sure to check out this blog!)

5 Supplements to Improve Insulin Sensitivity

Posted by Dr. Christopher Gross, D.C. on Jul 6, 2017 11:02:00 AM

Your blood sugar level refers to the amount of glucose in your bloodstream at any point in time. Glucose is used by most cells in the body for energy, and is especially required by the brain.  A constant blood sugar supply is vital, and it must stay within a tight range. In fact, if it goes too low or high, severe illness and, potentially, even death can occur.

Why Dieting Can Make You Fat

Posted by Dr. Christopher Gross, D.C. on Jun 25, 2017 10:02:00 AM

According to Einstein, doing the same thing over and over again, expecting different results is the definition of insanity. It’s an addiction to insanity in our culture, the weight loss diet.

Despite plenty of scientific evidence that diets don’t produce lasting results for most people, and despite countless numbers of dieters, most of them women, thrown into a lifetime of damaging despair, low self-esteem, and self-hatred thanks to failing diets, our culture still blindly adheres to the low-calorie diet.

What Should I Eat to Prevent Bone Loss?

Posted by Carlson Chiropractic on May 20, 2017 11:57:00 AM

 

As we age, our bodies lose bone mass – it’s a fact of life. Our bone mass is attained at its highest density in our late teens and early 20’s. There is less of a risk of developing osteoporosis in adults who achieved a high bone mass in their 20’s. Low bone mass can cause severe neck and back pain, as well as fractures.

Even if a strong bone density was not achieved early in life, or a diagnosis of osteoporosis has been given, there are measures to slow the process of bone loss. There are many important steps to take to stop osteoporosis. Exercise and healthy eating are a must. Let’s take a look at good nutrition choices for healthy bones.

A Few Words About Osteoporosis and Bone Health

Posted by Carlson Chiropractic on May 8, 2017 3:57:00 PM

Osteoporosis is a condition in which the bones weaken and are at a significantly higher risk for fracturing. As people age, especially women, bone loss is one of the health indicators that are noted at a regular check-up. The painless, fast process of bone density testing is the best way to identify if you have osteoporosis or osteopenia. Osteopenia is an indication of lower than normal bone density and is a good “wake-up call” for proactive bone strengthening measures.
