One30Twelve Group Introduction- First Challenge

What is Meek Chiropractic's One30Twelve group all about?  This group is on Facebook so you can do it at your own time, place and pace.  Anyone can join.  Whether you are looking for a way to take small steps toward health, or you just want to join to share your health secrets with others.  It is a group where we are all in it together.  To help each other.  Click on the photo above to join. 
You can always start your Twelve months anytime.

Each month Meek Chiropractic will post one challenge for each person to do for 30 days.  They will be simple health challenges.  Each Monday we will post on Facebook a tip to keep you on track with the challenge.  The group is a place where everyone can talk, ask questions, seek advice, help each other.  All questions and answers will not come from Meek Chiropractic.  We just want to help get the conversation started.  
We understand most diet programs or health groups are overwhelming.  Money is tight, life is busy, and focusing on your health is not a priority at the moment.  But it should be.  

August-Challenge One for 30

Drink 8 glasses of water a day-At this point, don't give up other drinks you love.  Just add water. 

Seems simple enough.  But most people don't do it. Americans know how much they should drink and why they need to drink it.  However, only 34% actually do and 10% don't drink any at all. 

Today we are not going to focus on the negative, let's look at the positive. 

Top 10 Benefits of Drinking Water: Don't Medicate, Hydrate!

1. Increases Energy & Relieves Fatigue – Since your brain is mostly water, drinking it helps you think, focus and concentrate better and be more alert. As an added bonus, your energy levels are also boosted!

2. Promotes Weight Loss – Removes by-products of fat, reduces eating intake (by filling up your tummy if consumed prior to meals), reduces hunger (hello natural appetite suppressant!), raises your metabolism and has zero calories!

3. Flushes Out Toxins – Gets rid of waste through sweat and urination which reduces the risk of kidney stones and UTI’s (urinary tract infections).

4. Improves Skin Complexion – Moisturizes your skin, keeps it fresh, soft, glowing and smooth. Gets rid of wrinkles. It’s the best anti-aging treatment around!

5. Maintains Regularity – Aids in digestion as water is essential to digest your food and prevents constipation.

6. Boosts Immune System – A water guzzler is less likely to get sick. And who wouldn’t rather feel healthy the majority of the time? Drinking plenty of water helps fight against flu, cancer and other ailments like heart attacks.

7. Natural Headache Remedy – Helps relieve and prevent headaches (migraines & back pains too!) which are commonly caused by dehydration.

8. Prevents Cramps & Sprains - Proper hydration helps keep joints lubricated and muscles more elastic so joint pain is less likely.

9. Puts You in a Good Mood – When the body is functioning at its best, you will feel great and be happy!

10. Save Money! - Water is FREE! Even if you choose bottled/filtered water, it’s STILL cheaper than that high sugar and fat-filled latte!

Meek Chiropractic ChiroBear

These cute and cuddly bears have a spine that will click when you press on their back. We use them in our office to show kids and parents what it will be like when the babies or kids get their first adjustment.  Each baby or child will get to take a bear home as a gift from our office for braving their first adjustment .  Kids like to pretend they are the doctor as they give these bears an adjustment too.

My Chiropractic Story- Dr. Dani

My Chiropractic Story:
Growing up a very close family member suffered from chronic migraines following pregnancy for over ten years. She had tried every outlet possible without finding relief including being placed on muscle relaxers, anti-inflammations and given injections for years. With no relief, the diagnosis that it was “in her head” and the realization that she was taxing her liver as well as feeling like she was stuck with chronic pain was too much. She finally gave in to a family member’s request to see their chiropractor. Within the first few adjustments she noticed a significant decrease in the severity of her migraines. In the weeks following, the frequency at which she was suffering from migraines also decreased. The family dynamic changed considerably and she was finally able to pull away from the constant fear that she was stuck with having to “just deal with it”.
My realization came quickly that addressing a person in their entirety was a much better approach to simply analyzing the symptoms as had been done in her particular situation. With chiropractic care and some physical therapy she was able to overcome the pain that had been controlling her for the better part of her life. I became inspired to help other families as my own had been helped.
Once at Logan College of Chiropractic I became very interested in nutrition and began working with diet and nutrition. Within a short period of time after subjecting friends and family to my new found knowledge, it was easy to see what an impact diet had on everyday problems with simply tweaking what one ate. While in outpatient clinic I also began working with pregnant women and realized the benefit of chiropractic care not only during pregnancy, but for both the mother and newborn as well. Intrigue immediately turned into a passion for working with pregnancy, pediatrics and children.
Growing up as an athlete I was captivated by the body’s innate ability to heal and move. A Masters in Sports Science and Rehabilitation seemed to be the best route to explore how I could help athletes stay bio-mechanically stable and healthy prior to and post injury.  Sports injuries happen, but through Chiropractic and rehabilitation I have learned how to decrease the chance of injury and re-injury by simply teaching an athlete to fire the correct muscles in the correct pattern use proper form and maintain a balanced spine. I can’t make you an athlete, but I can make you a better one.
