December Condition of the Month: High Blood Pressure

Do you suffer from High Blood Pressure?

Did you know that regular chiropractic care can significantly lower your blood pressure? About 1 in 3 adults in the United States has High Blood Pressure. The condition itself usually has no signs or symptoms. You can have it for years without knowing it. During this time, though, High Blood Pressure can damage your heart, blood vessels, kidneys, and other parts of your body. 

Are you really safer getting the flu vaccine?

It’s that time of year again; the time when insurance companies and doctors start pushing the flu vaccine.  Many of you have asked my opinion regarding these vaccines.  It seems as if the flu vaccines are being offered earlier every year.  This year, I began seeing signs advertising free flu vaccine as early as August.  Isn’t this before the traditional flu season?  This year, six different flu vaccines have been developed, all of which report to offer protection against the 2009 H1N1 swine flu.  However, before getting inoculated, consider the following ingredients that the various flu vaccines contain:  egg albumin; hydrocortisone, a known steroid; formaldehyde, which is a known carcinogen used in embalming fluids; phosphates, some of which are salts and are corrosive to human tissues; mercury, which can lead to numbness, burning, and itching; thimerosol, which is an inorganic mercury that has been linked to autism.  I urge each of you to pass this information on to others.  As with anything in health care, you need to research the information, pray about it, and make a wise and informed decision.

As always, we will be praying for you and your family during this flu season!
