Exercise and Rest

DR Carr/Home, Exercise, Health, Sleep
The best exercise is the one you will do regularly…almost in any form. My suggestions: Yoga – there are many benefits to yoga, among the best are: increased strength, flexibility, endurance and balance. Interval Training – Benefits: very time effective, and it increases fat burning efficiency of the body, even when not exercising. Interval training is done by exercising at maximum intensity for 30 seconds, minimum intensity (or rest) 60 seconds, then repeat for a total of 8 times. Total time intense 4 minutes, total time exercising 12 minutes. Interval training is best done 2-3 times per week.

Supplements

Supplements are just that – supplements to your diet. Do not replace good food choices with pills/potions. But with today’s industrialization, mass production, and urbanization, it is virtually impossible to get all that we need from our foods. Even the right food may not have the nutrition it was meant to have because of depleted soils, improper picking time for optimal nutrient content, poor growing conditions, etc. I consider the following to be basic essentials for supplementation: Multi-vitamin – the best is a vitamin that is from a “natural’ whole food source and has a wide selection of nutrients.

Throw away “table salt” (it’s just Sodium Chloride). Replace With Health Giving Foods Make healthier choices.

Suggestions for Spinal Correction

DR Carr/Home, Health, Uncategorized
Suggestions to Follow During Spinal Correction Avoid rubbing, probing, or “poking” in the areas your doctor adjusts. Avoid sudden twists or turns of movement beyond normal limits of motion, especially of the neck. Avoid extreme bending of your spine in any direction; avoid stretching, reaching or other overhead work. Be particularly careful when brushing or shampooing your hair. Avoid bending or stooping sharply to pick up objects; rather, bend your knees to minimize the strain on your lower back. When lifting, keep your back straight; bend your knees and let your legs bear the strain. Hold the object lifted as close to your body as possible. When bathing, sit rather than recline in the tub. Lying back against the tub may cause a vertebra to slip out of its normal position. If you are…
