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

Details

This week's HTYH is a continuation of Cindy's story: Towards the end of my drinking I spent a lot of time at my doctor's office. I don't know if I qualified for being a hypochondriac, but even when I wasn't sick--I thought I was.

When we drink too much alcohol, everyday, it causes us all sorts of health problems. My stomach was constantly upset, my digestive system was out of whack, I had headaches and my nerves were shot, but alcohol was never mentioned as a probable cause for my ailments...

Details DR. JAMES NILL

HOLISTIC CHIROPRACTIC CARE

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...

HERE'S TO YOUR HEALTH

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 had a very short drinking career; it grabbed me and took me down---somewhere I never thought I'd be. Alcohol began to run my life; I didn't go anywhere or do anything if alcohol wasn't there. I stopped sports and all extracurricular activities at school because they interfered with my partying--partying is all I thought about. I no...
