Do your body good…from the inside out

Ballerina Dancing, Therapy and Training in Beverly Hills, CA - Beverly Hills Posture offers Chiropractic Care, yoga, Acupunture, and Massage Therapy, Walker Ozar - Doctor of Chiropractic, Chiropractor in Beverly HIlls CaliforniaBy now, I would guess that most of us know the importance of having physical exercise regimens of some kind to choose from for our weekly rituals to keep the body energized, strong and flexible.

Additionally, it is imperative we make healthy choices with our foods and practice moderation when we decide to “splurge.”  It’s just as necessary to understand that what we put ON our body can have as significant an impact as what we put IN our body.

Our epidermis (skin) is the largest organ of the body. What we put on our skin has a large effect on long-term health and a balanced system. So, becoming mindful of what personal care products we use on a daily basis (i.e. hair products, body lotions and soaps, cosmetics, and even household cleaners) is just as important as knowing about the foods we are ingesting each day.

Why, you may ask?

Because the majority of these products include harsh chemicals linked to cancer, as well as those acting an “endocrine disrupters” (i.e. disrupts fertility and hormonal balance) in both men and women.

Many of the big culprits to avoid include:

1.  Parabens

2.  Sulfates

3.  Phthalates

4.  Artificial Fragrances

5.  BPA (Bisphenol-A) as well as its counterpart and now substitute in many cases, BPS (Bisphenol-S)

These products are mostly used in the packaging of foods, personal care products and just about anything made of plastic, including baby toys and such. Although there have been strides made to create “BPA-free” products, many of those products use BPS in place of BPA. In general, it’s best to choose products packaged in glass over plastic, for example.

Unfortunately, we can’t trust the product by just reading the front label. Labels on these products can say “Natural” and “Organic,“ but that doesn’t mean the product is free from toxins. Learning to read the ingredient list on labels is a key factor in making educated choices in the products you purchase.

To check the toxicity levels in the products you use, get more education overall and receive updates on the latest regarding environmental and food news, explore these fantastic resources:

Spice up your life…and health with Turmeric

Turmeric is a plant (or root) from the ginger family native to South Asia.  It grows wild in the forests of South and Southeast Asia and is one of the key ingredients in many Asian dishes.  This golden-colored spice is, however, a very potent natural anti-inflammatory food, that also improves liver and kidney function. Turmeric can be taken in pill form or made into a paste that can be applied directly to an area of the body that is experiencing pain. Turmeric, Therapy and Training in Beverly Hills, CA - Beverly Hills Posture offers Chiropractic Care, yoga, Acupunture, and Massage Therapy, Walker Ozar - Doctor of Chiropractic, Chiropractor in Beverly HIlls California

The best part of this natural pain-killer is that there are no side effects!  It’s a natural antiseptic and antibacterial agent–useful in disinfecting cuts and burns. When combined with cauliflower, it has been shown to prevent prostate cancer and stop the growth of existing prostate cancer.

Turmeric is also known to reduce the risk of childhood leukemia, stop growth of new blood vessels in tumors, speed up wound healing and assist in the remodeling of damaged skin as well as prevent breast cancer from spreading to the lungs (when tested on mice).

Aside from all of these known health benefits, Turmeric is currently being studied due to the belief that it can help treat psoriasis and other inflammatory skin conditions, aid in fat metabolism and help in weight management, and treat pancreatic cancer.  This “miracle root” has recently been shown to have many beneficial effects on myeloma patients.

Turmeric offers something for everyone.  So why not go your local health food store today and pick up a bottle today?
