HERE'S TO YOUR HEALTH: CINDY'S STORY PART III

Details

This week's HTYH is a continuation of Cindy's story: After I started drinking alcoholically, I went down hill really fast. I was no longer that kid with great expectations, hopes and dreams who bounced back from bad nights—everything turned dark and I was miserable. When I arrived around the tables of AA and I heard other alcoholics say that they were sick and tired of being sick and tired—it rang like a bell and it fit me to a "T." I knew that was me and although I was still trying to be 16...

A HEALTHY DAY: POSTURE

Details DR. NILL

Most of our daily activities work against good posture. We spend large portions of our days sitting in an uncomfortable chair, peering at a computer terminal. Muscles tighten and joints get stiff as we make our way through our daily tasks and responsibilities. Neck muscles, lower back muscles, thigh muscles (quadriceps and hamstrings), and calf muscles shorten, lose their mobility, and become stiff and sore. Aches and pains add their burdens to chronically poor posture. Over time we become even...

Details

This week's HTYH is a continuation of Cindy's story: I took a drink, the drink took a drink and the drink took me and it didn't take very long for that to happen.

I stopped sports and all extracurricular activities at school because they interfered with my partying--partying is all I thought about. I no...

CHIROPRACTIC AND THE NERVE SYSTEM

Chiropractors are specialists in analyzing and correcting nerve interference. Chiropractic care restores the free flow of information between your brain and the rest of your body. When your body's physiologic systems receive accurate information - on time and in the right sequences - they can do the jobs they were designed to do. The result is dynamic, vibrant, fully expressed health and well-being.

EXERCISING ALFRESCO

In "The Producers", the riotous Mel Brooks movie classic from 1968, the wily and almost washed-up Broadway producer Max Bialystock (played famously by Zero Mostel) takes timid accountant Leo Bloom (Gene Wilder) to lunch. Bialystock steers Bloom to a hotdog vendor's run-down sidewalk stand just outside an entrance to New York City's Central Park. "We're dining alfresco" Bialystock pompously intones, sardonically tracing a big, broad semicircle with his hotdog to symbolically...
