You may have noticed this sit/stand workstation in action at our front desk. Maintaining the static posture during your workday can wreak havoc on your spine and contribute to many common aches and pains. This desk allows you quickly and easily change your position which will help you maintain a healthy spine. Many of our patients think that this kind of set up is outside their budget, but this wonderful Sit/Stand Desk available through PrimeCable is under $200! Just follow this link.

The more I study health, the more I have come to appreciate how crucially important the bacteria in your gut are to your health. There's an amazing list of more than 200 studies, which together explore more than 170 diseases which can be helped or treated with probiotics. Obesity, diabetes, depression, heart disease and irritable bowel syndrome are but a handful of conditions that may be helped by rebalancing your gut flora. Symptoms indicating you're lacking healthy bacteria include gas, bloating, constipation, frequent nausea, headaches, and sugar cravings. We recommend Metagenics "UltraFlora Balance" to many of our patients.
Vitamins, Minerals, Probiotics, and Supplements
Dietary supplements are intended to be just that… a supplement to a healthy lifestyle. It cannot take the place of healthy eating, but it can support it. According to the National Center for Complementary and Integrative Health (NCCIH), "Most individuals can get all of the vitamins and minerals necessary through a healthy eating pattern of nutrient-dense foods." The problem with this, however, is that many people are not eating nutrient-dense foods, either by choice or consequence. Some of the top sources of calories come from grain-based desserts (cakes, cookies, and doughnuts), soda, bread, pizza, and alcohol rather than process free and nutrient packed whole foods. Vitamins, minerals, pro and prebiotics, and supplements can help fill nutritional gaps in our diet and therefore support your better overall health.
