Happy Valentines Day!

What is at the top of your Valentine's Day gift list this year? Are chocolates and flowers at the top? If so, try to mix it up. Encourage your special someone to start chiropractic care and sign them up for a complementary initial appointment!

Chiropractic care is the gift that keeps on giving and has many long-lasting benefits. This care helps reduce nerve interference. It will help your special someone experience greater overall health and well-being. This leads to fewer headaches, better sleep, improved range of motion, and so much more.

Regular chiropractic care can also help with a variety of health conditions such as; digestive discomfort, fatigue, and vertigo. As Valentine's Day is all about hearts, chiropractic care may improve heart health! Studies show that there is a direct correlation between regular adjustments and better blood pressure and circulation.

This year, encourage your Valentine to come visit us!

Trust Your Gut to Health

Recently, we added the "Trust Your Gut" program to our growing clinic. This program helps reset your hormones, conquer your body's stress response, and enhance health performance.

In medicine today, leaky gut (AKA intestinal permeability) isn't typically diagnosed. However, that doesn't mean that it's not affecting your health. Many health issues related to leaky gut syndrome go undiagnosed, misdiagnosed, or are ignored by traditional medicine.

Some common causes of a leaky gut are stress, excess sugar, inflammation, and nutrient deficiencies. Our program helps heal and seal, detox and destress, then replenish and rebuild your gut. If you are interested in learning more, let one of our team members know!
