Love Gets Good Vibrations From Chiropractic Care 2013

Five words or less(NewsUSA) – “I Get Around.”
That iconic ’60s song resonates deeply with the Beach Boys’ Mike Love — and not just because he co-wrote it. These days, it’s also something of an ode to how his life has improved, thanks to chiropractic care.
“In more than 50 years of performing over 100 shows a year, I’ve traveled by car, van, bus, train, plane and occasional boat,” he says of the toll all that touring has taken on his body. “Chiropractors have helped me remain mobile and pain-free.”
That makes Love, who’s a big supporter of the Foundation for Chiropractic Progress, one of the growing number of Americans who’ve turned to what the journal Chiropractic & Manual Therapies calls “one of the most frequently utilized types of complementary and alternative care by older adults.” In fact, an estimated 14 percent of patients cared for by chiropractors are age 65 and over.
And while many older adults seek chiropractic care for its high patient-satisfaction scores and relief from musculoskeletal pain, chiefly back and neck pain, that’s not all they’re consulting such doctors about. The same C&MT article also noted that chiropractors help manage patients’ health conditions through lifestyle counseling, including exercise and nutritional support.
As for the lead singer of the Beach Boys, whose biggest-selling hit, “Kokomo,” reached number one in 1988, he still loves performing in front of audiences worldwide. “With my active lifestyle,” he says, “I use regular chiropractic care as a complement to my daily practice of transcendental meditation and hatha yoga.”

What You Drink and Your Immune System?

Most people know that their bodies are made up of a great deal of water, but may be surprised to learn that number is about 70 percent—and yet studies show we don’t drink enough to replenish what we need.

Other drinks to be sure, but water? Not even close.

Emphasizing this point is a study conducted by Dr. Alyson Goodman for the Centers of Disease Control and Prevention that suggests one in 10 Americans drinks no water every day.


She calls these results “mindboggling.”

“Water is vital for life,” says Goodman. “Many health risks decrease when you drink plain water.”

Goodman believes that the non-water drinkers are getting their water from coffee, sodas, food and other sources, which might theoretically be okay, except for the calories that are associated with those other liquids.

According to Dr. Theodore A. Baroody, in order for a body to function well, it must have water, and in order for it to function properly, it must continuously work to maintain a proper pH or chemical balance.

To this end, the benefits of drinking water can’t be measured (preventing dehydration chief among them), however, adding alkaline water to a diet already rich in nutrient dense foods can help maintain a body’s pH balance, as well as aid in avoiding cancer, weak bones, premature aging and fatigue.

“An unbalanced pH can force your body to borrow important minerals from your vital organs and bones in order to remove excess acid,” Baroody says.

Water such as Alkame Water not only helps regulate these important pH balances in the body, but can boost the immune system, improve cardio-respiratory function and enhance energy levels. It even fights oxidative stress and free radicals.

Unlike its tap and bottled counterparts, Alkame Water goes through a process called “micro-clustering,” in which the molecules that make up water are broken up into smaller “clusters,” allowing body cells to absorb the water much faster, and in turn hydrate you more efficiently.

“If someone were to ask me, ‘What is the one thing I can do to have better health?’ Then the answer would be simple: Start drinking alkaline, ionized water,” says Dr. Robert O. Young, PhD, author of the “The pH Miracle.”

How to Navigate Constipation During Summer Vacation

For many Americans, it’s vacation season, which means long road trips and airport shuffles to visit family, friends and the exciting destinations in between. After finally checking into your hotel room, it’s time for pool lounging, leisurely conversations over dinner or sight-seeing with old friends and new. But, let’s be honest, not everything that comes with your vacation includes white sandy beaches and tropical drinks with the little umbrellas.

Sometimes traveling can be an ordeal—switching time zones, trying new foods and not staying hydrated. On occasion, those strains can lead to constipation for some folks.

International travel expert and best-selling author Joel Widzer, Psy.D, agrees, adding, “Even once travelers arrive safely at their destination, they often don’t anticipate the possible effects of different cuisines and local foods. I always suggest they bring along a laxative to be on the safe side.”

To avoid running into stomach aches and constipation troubles, keep the following tips in mind:

•    Stay hydrated.
•    Eat well-balanced meals.
•    Do not ignore the urge to have a bowel movement.

The advice isn’t only recommended for traveling, it’s also a good practice to follow at home. However, if you still happen to experience constipation, try Senokot tablets. Senokot products contain a natural vegetable laxative ingredient that provides gentle, overnight relief from occasional constipation, plus they have been recommended by physicians and pharmacists for over 55 years. Senokot TO GO tablets, a small package of four tablets, are a must-have travel companion as we enter the vacation season. They’re convenient and subtle. Please read full product label before use.

Which Plans Provide Highest-Quality Health Care?

 Choosing the right health care plan can have a big impact on your quality of life, especially if you’re a senior or otherwise Medicare eligible. With the 5-star Special Enrollment Period underway through November, now is the time to consider whether your current plan provides the high-quality care and value of a 5-star Medicare health plan.

To help Medicare beneficiaries understand why quality matters and what it means to their health, Kaiser Permanente, which has the most 5-star plans nationwide for 2013, is sharing information about a key area to consider when evaluating a Medicare plan — preventive care.

“Medicare members should select a plan that is proactive in helping them stay healthy and active as they age. They need to know if their plan does a good job preventing them from getting sick through screenings, vaccines and tests,” said Jed Weissberg, M.D., medical director, Kaiser Permanente Medicare plans. “They also need to know how well their plan manages chronic conditions such as high blood pressure, high cholesterol and diabetes.”

Kaiser Permanente scores well above the national average in preventive screenings. For example, only one in six traditional Medicare members — 16 percent — used a free preventive service in 2011, according to the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services. By contrast, nearly 90 percent of eligible Kaiser Permanente Medicare members received breast cancer screenings, and nearly 88 percent received colorectal cancer screenings, as reported by the 2012 Healthcare Effectiveness Data and Information Set, commonly known as HEDIS.
Ratings matter, because if CMS rates a Medicare health plan 5 out of 5 stars, beneficiaries can feel confident about choosing the highest-quality plan available and join that plan almost any time of year.
