Happy New Year! 2018

Happy New Year!

Let’s begin with a thoughtful healthy and fit mindset as we start into 2018.
Sexy is the New Healthy!
Better your best…

It’s sort of cute how in the Philippines, when a person is thin, they refer to that as being “sexy” – not meaning what Westerners mean by that.
So in that context a thin person, not an unhealthy type of thin person like anorexia, but a person with the right weight for their height, or the proper BMI; right percentage of body fat for their gender, this is a person of normal weight and shape. In such a state or condition a person is in fact quite healthy. Continue reading

Affordable Chiropractic – an investment for health

Chiropractic – an affordable investment for health

Conventional Wisdom says that “an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure” and nothing could be more true than an  affordable investment in chiropractic care.

When people suffer from reoccurring health problems that keep coming back or from unexpected injuries that, if mismanaged, can become a lifelong problem? They are a crossroads.

To the left is a conventional medical pathway where expenses are heavy on testing, diagnosing and only a small part for treatments.

To the right is non-medical and non- drug treatment consisting of Chiropractic and proper lifestyle actions. Costs are based on the number of required treatments. Fix it or patch it up. Which is the more expensive in the long run? See, you are getting wiser already.

Yours in Health,
docMIKE

Sports and Chiropractic Care

Sports and Chiropractic Care

Life is great when you can enjoy your favorite activities and sports is a common activity of interest for so many people. Unfortunately, there are times when these sports related activities cause you injury.

As a result, either immediately or gradually – you’re unable to continue enjoying your sport because of injuries that did not heal. Sort of insult over injury.

Nature has a great capacity for healing; however, there are times when interventions are necessary, even surgery. However, when your body has healed and it’s clearly not a case for surgery, what are you supposed to do? This is when Chiropractic steps into your life. Continue reading

Children and Chiropractic Care

Children and Chiropractic Care

Child development markers are critical for lifelong health and pediatricians are tasked to monitor children for abnormalities in development. Chiropractors perform a critical specialist role in spinal development such as scoliosis.

There are severe deforming cases of scoliosis and there are functional cases. Chiropractic brings a depth of expertise that prevents the need for spinal surgery and provides true preventive health services for children.

Spinal misalignments begin for most people during childhood. The active life of a child makes them prone to multiple injuries that may seem innocent enough but in truth set the foundation for the spinal misalignments chiropractors find in adult patients. Continue reading

The Elderly And Chiropractic Care

The Elderly And Chiropractic Care

It is common knowledge that throughout life we go through minor or even major injuries. But nature – being as powerful as it is – we heal. However, we rarely heal 100%.

So decade by decade small problems accumulate and linger. As we age we experience more disability or reduced ability.

Chiropractic is known worldwide as a profession that helps restore ability, prevents disability, and eliminates much of the pain that could potentially ruin our days, our months, our lives. The reason people have learned to appreciate and respect that special role chiropractors bring to our families and to the ones that we love that are aging, is to help them live more meaningful active lives and reduce their overall need for medication. Truly a good thing! Continue reading

Sugar Only Available. Really?

This is a public health announcement. Restaurant owners please read.
Stop Tolerating

Filipino restaurant establishments that fail to offer non-sugary drinks on their menus for their customers are contributing to the epidemic of Diabetes in this country.

Let me make this simple… this is a public health problem and everyone needs to be part of the solution. Truth is if you are not part of the solution, you are part of the problem. Continue reading
