Today we live in a very fast-paced world. It takes a lot of energy to squeeze in work, household chores and daily activities with our friends and family. Many of us rely on the boost that we receive from the new craze: ENERGY DRINKS! But what do they actually do for us? Recent studies show that they are more harmful to us than we realize. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention states that 31 percent of Americans aged 12-17 and 34 percent of 18-24 year olds consume energy drinks.

The Harmful Side Effects:

 Caffeine Addiction: Energy drinks can cause caffeine addiction in a young population that doesn't require the caffeine boost. Caffeine is a stimulant drug that gives a temporary energy boost and increased mental awareness. Caffeine will stay in the body for several hours and that energy and mental awareness that you receive after drinking your energy drink will crash as soon as your caffeine levels start to drop.

Nervousness: Many people feel restless and irritable after drinking an energy drink. Some people even become jittery or nervous. Your hand may tremble or shake and your heart may race if you consume too many energy drinks.

Hypertension: Your blood pressure may rise soon after you drink an energy drink. You may also experience a rapid heartbeat or a racing pulse. Those who have been diagnosed with hypertension should avoid energy drinks.

Weight Gain: Energy drinks typically contain high amounts of sugar and are very high in calories which will cause you to pack on the pounds.

Insomnia: You should avoid drinking energy drinks in the evening. You may have trouble sleeping after consuming energy drinks late in the day. Insomnia and a poor night's sleep may be the cause of your lack of energy and may tempt your to drink more energy drinks.

Serious Medical Conditions: Consuming energy drinks may also cause dehydration, manic episodes, chest pains, seizures, heart attacks and even sudden cardiac death, Do not consume energy drinks if you have heart conditions or are currently taking prescription medication.

It takes white flour, white sugar and water to make a biscuit... if you consume white flour and sugar on a daily basis you can cause stiff joints and inflamed muscles. In addition to cutting these things out of your diet you need to add lubrication to the inside of your body. You should take at least 6,000 MG of a pharmaceutical grade Fish Oil and consume at least half of your body weight in ounces of water everyday to hydrate and lubricate your body. This will help reduce the stiffness and inflammation that you have in your body. If you start with these basic steps you will be on your way to feeling better and becoming more active in no time.

 

The Houston Conference Classification categorizes spinal subluxation as follows;

Static Intersegmental Subluxation

  1. Flexion Malpostition
  2. Extension Malposition
  3. Lateral Flexion Malpostition
  4. Rotation Malpostition
  5. Anteriorlesthesis
  6. Retrolesthesis
  7. Altered Interosseous Spacing (increased or decreased)
  8. Osseous Foramina Encroachment

Kinetic Intersegmental Subluxation

  1. Hypo-mobility (Fixation Subluxation)
  2. Hyper-mobility (Unstable Subluxation)
  3. Aberrant Motion (Paradoxical Motion)

Sectional Subluxation

  1. Scoliosis and/or alteration of curves secondary to muscle imbalance.
  2. Scoliosis and/or alteration of curves secondary to structural asymmetries.
  3. Decompensation of adaptational curves.
  4. Abnormalities of motion.

Paravertebral Subluxation

  1. Costovertebral or costtransverse disrelationships.
  2. Sacroiliac Subluxation

Low levels of B12 increase your 'Homocysteine', a substance that is well known to be associated with many mental conditions- depression, schizophrenia, alzheimer, mood disorders, as well as all other types of cancers. It might only be a link, but better be safe than sorry. Keep your Vitamin B12 levels above 550 and you should be safe.

Where to buy Vitamin B12 injections online for a reasonable price?

If you're looking to buy Vitamin B12 injections go to TrimNutrition. TrimNutrition gives you two possible forms of B12, Methylcobalamin and Cyanocobalamin. Methylcobalamin is the most active form of B12 and is present naturally in the human body, making it the most readily absorbable form of B12.

The term "Subluxation" is used by Doctors of Chiropractic to depict the altered position of the vertebra and subsequent functional loss, which determines the location for the spinal manipulation. "Subluxation" has been defined medically as ".... a partial abnormal separation of the articular surfaces of a joint." Chiropractors have described the term to include a complex of functions as "...an alteration of the biomechanics and physiological dynamics of contiguous structures which can cause neural disturbances."

Chiropractic Viewpoint on Subluxation

  • Hyperemia- an excess of blood in a specific area of the body.
  • Congestion- Joint dysfunction affects the muscles in different ways, with some muscles developing trigger points, or areas of congestion, where toxins develop, irritate the nerve endings and produce pain.
  • Edema- When the body's tiny blood vessels are damaged or pressurized, excess fluid may leak from them and build up in the tissues, leading to swelling.
  • Minute Hemorrhages- A small amount of bleeding or an abnormal flow of blood, minute hemorrhages may develop within the body's blood vessels as a result of certain triggers.
  • Fibrosis- Detailing the replacement of normal tissue with scar tissue.
  • Local Ischemia- A very specific type of muscle pain, ischemia refers to a lack of blood flow in the muscle. leaving the muscle very painful to touch.
  • Atrophy- The muscle shrinks and may partially or completely waste away as a result of inactivity.
  • Tissue Rigidity- Eventual rigidity and adhesions form not only in joint capsules, but also in ligaments, tendons and muscles.
