Cold and Flu Season is Upon Us!

Are supplements really going to help me?  Vitamins, and for that matter, all supplements are an area of controversy among some groups.  Some people swear by them, while others would argue that all you get with supplements is expensive urine.  So who's right?  The jury is still out on whether whole foods versus supplements are the absolute best ways to get your daily allowances.

One thing is for sure, though.  Most people aren't eating a perfectly balanced diet.  Are you? If you aren't sure, it is a good idea to add a daily multivitamin and mineral supplement.  Adequate vitamin and mineral balance will help your body maintain your immune system and proper inflammatory responses.

One way to test how well absorbed your vitamin is, place one pill in a cup with vinegar and leave overnight.  If it is not dissolved by the morning, chances are you are paying for expensive urine! (Sorry!)

Do You Have "Dead Butt Syndrome"?? It's more common than you think...

You may think of your rear as something that is just "there".  The truth is, however, that your booty is probably the most important group of muscles in your body!  And just because you are active, doesn't necessarily mean that yours is up to par.  Did you know that there are 3 gluteal muscles?  There is the gluteus medius, gluteus minimus and everybody's favorite; Gluteus Maximus. 

If your boo-tay isn't functioning properly, you may be in trouble.  The gluteus medius, specifically, has important function for your gait (the way you walk).  When your gluteus medius is weak or "dead" it ends up taking on loads it is either not fit for, or defers them to other muscles all together, which can lead to pain, altered mobility and function and potential problems at other sites such as your knees. 

So, do you have "Dead Butt Syndrome"???

Hoping February has been an amazing month for you and yours! Can you believe it is almost March?! Things have been going great here at the Irvine office, the gym is taking off and we are having lots of fun. Yours truley has started working out with a GREAT personal trainer, and let me tell you, this chiropractor is feeling the burn!  If you haven't had a chance to come visit your favorite chiropractor at her new Irvine location yet, stop by!  If you are afraid you have dead butt syndrome, we can help with that too!
