5 Tips to Maximize Your Health Over the Holidays

Holidays already have you feeling stressed? With the holidays upon us, New Life Chiropractic in Rocklin would like to remind you of the importance of staying healthy over the holidays and share some ideas for maintaining maximum health levels focused on the 5 Essentials.

Max Mindset

We are born to nurture and develop imagination, concentration, adaptability, and planning. All of life and fulfillment requires creativity, strategy, relationships, a sense of humor, flexibility and focus.

These things are developed through adventure, investigation, crafts, arts, reading, journaling, social interaction, physical activity, problem-solving and all that makes up real-life experience. All of these basic necessities of mental function and development have one thing in common: none of them are maximized while watching TV or playing video games. Studies show that there is a direct correlation between time in front of a TV or computer screen and lowered IQ.

Real time: Spend time with your family over the Holidays doing the following activities to Max your MIND:

  • Doing a scavenger hunt
  • Reading a Thanksgiving and Christmas book
  • Doing a craft session weekly

Max Nerve System

Research shows that with spinal adjustments your immune system is up to 200% stronger. During this time of colds and flu viruses, it is essential to have a HIGHLY functioning immune system. God created your brain and spinal cord and your nervous system to control all functions of the human body. The strength of your immune system is directly proportional to the strength of your nerve system.

Real time: if you are currently under chiropractic care, make sure you are getting your adjustments weekly and doing your home care. If you are not currently under chiropractic care, please find a corrective/wellness care chiropractor to evaluate your nerve system for subluxations (interference with the nerve’s flow).

Max Nutrition

What you put into your body affects how you feel each and every day. Food is the fuel that your body needs to continue to power and heal itself on a daily basis. Diets that are high in carbohydrates, have pH or omega-3 imbalances or are nutrient deficient have negative effects not only on your body, but can create many other symptoms such as depression, brain fog, stress and fatigue. It is essential not just to eat a healthy diet, but make sure you have the proper supplementation to fill in any gaps and help your body adapt during times of stress.

Real time: This week (11/23/20 – 11/25/20) we are having our BLACK FRIDAY HOLIDAY SALE and are discounting all product 15-20% so that you and your family can stock up on all the healthy essentials for the holiday season. There is no limit, so this is also the opportunity to gift the gift of health to someone else this season by encouraging them to eat and live healthier with natural supplementation.

Max Lean Muscle

Kids were born to move, kick, jump and fall out of swings. Kids now perform these activities through their video games. This inactivity creates obesity, but also poorly developed muscles, joints, and ligaments. Arthritis, spinal degeneration, and other muscle/joint dysfunctions once reserved for the aged are now being seen in children.

For adults movement is also an essential part of a healthy lifestyle and it is important to get in some type of movement every day!

Real time: Spend time moving your body daily during this Holiday season. Our bodies were created to MOVE. Here are some workouts for you and your family to perform: 

Run/jog from your driveway to the next driveway and back (45 sec). stop and stretch the muscles of your legs, arms, shoulders, neck and back. Then start your MaxT3 workout:

  1. 20 second running in place
  2. 10 second rest
  3. 20 second wall pushups
  4. 10 second rest
  5. 20 second air squats
  6. 10 second rest
  7. 20 second jumps
  8. Rest for 1 minute
  9. Repeat the above sequence 2 more times.

Minimize Toxins

Daily we are bombarded with 1000’s of toxins. Everyday we are surrounded by household cleaning products, personal care products, Teflon, tap water, mold, vaccines, medications, etc. Each of these things has potentially deadly components that will make you and your family sicker every year. Research now proves that our inside environment is 125x more toxic than our outside environment.

Real Time:

  • Replace your cleaning products with non-toxic products, i.e. Seventh Generation or Green Wise.
  • Take a closer look at your personal care products: antifreeze and SLS are found in the majority of your products.
  • Replace your Teflon pans/pots with ceramic, stainless steel or cast iron.
  • Drink only filtered, high pH, non-chlorinated water.
  • Change your filters and investigate your home/work/school for sick building syndrome – MOLD causes allergies and asthma.
  • Do your research on vaccines – most contain mercury, aluminum, benzene, formaldehyde, aborted fetal cells, etc. Studies have linked these chemicals to learning disabilities, autism and chronic sickness.
