Stay tuned for Pavlina’s New Years Free Sugar Challenge!!!!

Here’s a message from Pavlina herself:

Want to stay on track with your health during the Holidays Season?

The holiday season is upon us, Christmas is just around the corner and we who live in this North American culture – the holiday party, social gatherings etc. culture –  we are all staring down the face of food and drink abundance.

I just wanted to take a minute here and offer some prospective to all of you who are navigating this season with the ongoing commitment to lead a healthy lifestyle. Whether it is a commitment to choose less processed food, or to lower alcohol intake, or to include x number of serving of vegetables into you daily routine, or to avoid processed sugar, drink plenty of water and etc….

We are all facing a challenge this time of year that might be feared by many… do we stay on track?

Let’s embrace the challenge this year and set a new pattern of behaviour that will take us 1 step closer to our best essay writer, lets practice new behaviour together for easier future.

To figure out what is THE best approach for times like this for YOU is to first  find an answer to this question :

“ Are you a Moderator or are you an Abstainer”?

For some people restricting certain foods is not always fun but for some people it is actually easier to avoid all rather than to try to moderate their intake.

Can you relate to this scenario?  : “ Oh, I already had a serving of Christmas treats that I was not planning on eating so I might as well try all the goodies offered here and have fun time since I already “messed up”, and I will start again 100% tomorrow”….

That kind of approach would be considered the Abstainer – with the all or nothing attitude….It is exhausting for them to continually debate the thoughts in their head like “ Do I have it today or tomorrow?” or “How much should I have?” or  “I have been in the gym, don’t I deserve it?”

Therefore the best approach for the Abstainer is to abstain from all the deviations from their original plan. Whatever boundaries you have set for yourself in the past,  you will need to remind yourself (meditation works great) of your commitment each and every morning and plan for keeping your routine. (practically making sure you have your own foods at an arms length)

The moderator on the other hand, have a general sense of what is moderate for them or they set rules for themselves.  Like “ I will have 1 drink when I am invited out to a party, but I won’t have any drinks at home. “ They are able to have some, feel satisfied and it is easy for them not to overindulge.

Moderators will say, that having a little bit of something makes them want it less.

If you are a moderator, small treat here and there will go a long way for you.

Here are some tips for all to navigate with ease through the holidays

  1. Get sufficient amount of sleep.
  2. Keep yourself well hydrated. Having a glass of water in between drinks will slow down alcohol consumption, or between meals to keep your hunger signals at bay.
  3. Don’t skip on calories by skipping breakfast – lean source of protein and good quality fat with either veggies or piece of fruit will go a long way to stabilize your blood sugar level and prevent the need to overeat later in in the day.
  4. If you are planning to treat yourself, see what is out there that you would love to try, get a small plate out and place 1 small piece of each on the plate ahead of time. Accept this to be all that you will have for the day. This way there will be no room left for the little voice in your head to negotiate whether or not to have more…
  5. Make a commitment  every day to go outside to get fresh air,  connect with nature and at the same time to get some blood flowing through your veins through more movement.

Regardless of where on our journey we are at, let’s just look and see if we can create the warmth, the sparkle, the fabulous feeling that we are really aching for in this holiday from gratitude, from human connection, from shoving up to be fully of service to people that we are around on those days, and see if at the end of the day, when we put our head on the pillow, if we are not bursting out of every cell of our body with this eternal bliss …let’ just see…

If you feel like you would like to get a jump start and prepare ahead for the Holiday season, let me know,  I am here to help . Having a well thought out wellness plan ahead of time can sure take some of the stress associate with the Holidays off.

Yours in Health,

Anatomy 101


The spine is one of the most important parts our body. It has three main functions:

  • Protects the spinal cord
  • Gives the body structure and support
  • Allows us to move freely

The Bones and Joints

The spine is made of 33 bones called vertebra that are stacked one above each other. There are:

  • 7 cervical vertebra in the neck
  • 12 thoracic vertebra in the middle back
  • 5 lumbar vertebra in the low back.

The sacrum is a wedged shaped bone in the pelvis made of 5 fused vertebra. The tail end of the spine (literally) we have the coccyx made of 4 fused coccygeal vertebra. The vertebra are given names based on their position in the spine. L1 is the first lumbar vertebra. There are 2 bones that have special names because of their special function. The atlas (C1) holds up the head and the axis allows the head to rotate from side to side.

Bones and Joints

Here you can see 2 vertebra stacked on top of the other. 3 joints join the vertebra to each other. The large disc in the front is like a soft cushion and provides support and absorbs pressure. The disc has a poor blood supply and receives its nutrition via sucking the nutrients from the body when you move. Behind the disc there are 2 facet joints. The facet joints guide the movement of the vertebra and have a large supply of nerves that feed your brain with information about where your spine is and how it is moving. Your brain uses this information when it is deciding how your organs should function. Some amazing research by Dr. Akio Sato has been done in this field. This is why is it is so important to maintain the normal movement of your spine. Between the facet joints and the disc is a gap called the intervertebral foramen or the IVF for short. The spinal nerves exit the spinal canal through the IVF. There are a number of bumps on each vertebra. You can see the transverse and spinouts processes in the picture. The muscles and ligaments of the spine attach to these bumps.

The Ligaments

There are a number of ligaments that cross between two vertebra. The ligaments hold the bones together while still allowing the joints to move. Some of the ligaments cross the intervetebral foramen and reduce the space the spinal nerves have to exit the spinal canal. When there is joint restriction the ligaments can rub twist and squash the nerves reducing their ability to carry healthy information from the brain to the body or the body back to the brain. With age and lack of exercise the ligaments become shorter and harder, making the joints stiffer. In the long term tight and stiff ligaments pull on the bones and produce bone spurs. Exercise and adjustments to maximize the health of the ligaments will minimize the effects of osteoarthritis in the future.

The Muscles

The Muscles

here are multiple layers of muscles in the back. Some are for supporting our spine and are called postural muscles or core muscles others are for moving our spine and are called the prime movers. The muscles are arranged in different patterns to bend our spine forwards backwards, sideways and rotate to each side. Like all muscles of the body the spinal muscles require good exercise and stretching to maintain their health and the health of your spine.

The Nerves

The spinal cord is the information superhighway between your brain and your body. Without it you could not move any part of your body and your organs could not function. It is made of millions of nerves. The spinal cord is protected by the bony spinal canal formed by the vertebra that are stacked one on top of the other. It is also protected by the duramater, a tough covering around the cord. Between the duramater and the spinal cord is the cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) The CSF is important for protection of the central nervous system (CNS), which includes the brain and the spinal cord and feeds the CNS with nutrients from the blood.

The Peripheral Nerves

The spinal nerves convey information between the central nervous system and the rest of the body. The spinal nerves exit the spinal canal through each of the intervertebral foramen between each pair of vertebra. Like the tributaries of a river the small spinal nerves form larger nerves, such as the sciatic nerve, which runs down the buttock into the leg. This is how your brain controls every single cell and organ in you body. The following chart describes which spinal nerves innervate (supply) which parts of the body. You will notice that all the body parts actually receive information from more than one spinal nerve and the nerves travel a great distance to get to the organ they are supplying. This is why the actual problem in the spinal can be a long way away from you feeling the problem.

Want to Understand Chiropractic?

Then be aware of these 7 principles:

Your body is under the control of the brain and nervous system as long as you are alive.

Your brain is protected by the skull, and your spinal cord is protected by the spinal column.

Spinal bones move out of normal alignment and interrupt your normal nerve flow.

This disruption of normal nerve flow is referred to as a vertebral subluxation.

It is vital to know that subluxations can be silent; causing problems long before symptoms occur.

Chiropractors find subluxations, and by preforming a spinal adjustment, facilitate a return of normal nerve supply.

Normal nerve supply results in a greater expression of LIFE for you!

Statistics show that nearly 30% of whiplash victims experience chronic injuries or disabilities that want long-term medical care. Furthermore, one in seven whiplash injuries lead to severe lingering pain in the neck and back lasting more three years after the incident occurs. Whiplash injuries are particularly debilitating because the resulting pain can affect your neck, back, shoulders and also one or both arms.

Neck and back injuries resulting from any kind of accident are likely to affect an individual’s daily life, potentially preventing them from returning to work, performing normal activities, or even getting out of bed without experiencing extreme pain.

Whiplash is one the most common injuries associated using neck and back trauma, often caused by involvement in motor vehicle accidents, assault, or slip and fall accidents. Whiplash occurs when one’s head is violently forced forward as a result of an impact from behind, and is then jerked backwards. This type of injury affects the soft tissues on the neck, particularly the muscles, tendons and ligaments, and is caused by an abnormal force applied to the neck that causes the neck to move beyond its normal range of motion.

Whiplash Injuries Symptoms

There are many symptoms commonly linked to whiplash. These are mentioned below:

1.Neck pain
2. Fretboard swelling
3. Muscle spasms in your neck
4. Tenderness
5. Headaches

Some victims of whiplash may experience additional symptoms like dizziness, tiredness, nausea and irritability. Unfortunately, some instances of whiplash injuries are disregarded due to the fact symptoms, don’t immediately arise, increasing the prospect of the injury becoming a recurring condition later in life.

Whiplash, Personal injury Treatment

Proper medical treatment for whiplash injuries varies on a case-by-case basis, depending on the type and severity of the damage sustained. Medical care for patients of whiplash injuries typically consists of bed rest, immobilization of your neck, anti-inflammatory medications, range of motion exercises, ice therapy, high temperature therapy, and avoiding excessive fretboard strain. In severe instances, these injuries may require rehabilitation and physical therapy before they may be fully resolved, as well as monitoring to ensure the victim has not suffered any additional injuries. For more information, visit Spinewise Whiplash Bowmanville.

Some Serious Complications of Whiplash

Whiplash injuries can bring about serious complications if not treated well, including muscle spasms, pain, and ligament damage in the top back and neck. In simple fact, whiplash is one of the most common causes of chronic pain. More severe whiplash cases could cause life-altering complications like permanent fretboard pain, spinal cord damage, vertebrae arthritis, chronic pain or chronic headaches. If the nerve roots damaged in the accident, numbness and weakness in the affected area may last until recovery is complete.


Each and every year, approximately 2 million people undergo a whiplash type injury. In these cases, the chiropractic care can be beneficial. A Chiropractor can help assist patients with both the short and extended effects of whiplash associated accidental injuries. Before we consider the various unique advantages offered by Chiropractic care in the whiplash treatment, let’s discuss what exactly a whiplash injury is.


What is a whiplash?


The name “whiplash” isn’t a medical term at all. Rather the definition of “whiplash” is a non-medical term mostly used to describe a sprain and strain injury to the soft tissues of your neck.


Whiplash is usually associated with an automobile accident, but it may appear in many other instances. Whiplash may also be caused by things such as a fall, or an impact or collision in a sporting event or recreational exercise. Some examples are a fall from a horse, a collision in basketball, or an impact experienced in basketball, boxing, or hockey.


Whiplash is considered an acceleration-deceleration type injury and occurs once the cervical spine, or neck, is abruptly forced to stretch out and move beyond its normal range of motion. This typically involves the neck suddenly extending backward than flexing forward beyond the normal anatomical range of motion. This results in an overload injury due to excessive forces being placed in the cervical spine.


If the initial injury weren’t bad enough, the response of the human body post injury can further complicate matters. After the injured muscles close to the area respond to by means of contracting in spasm to splint and stabilize the area. This limits movement of the head and neck and is the body’s well intentioned efforts to prevent movement and further injury. Essentially the body attempts to create its own soft collar to limit motion on the head and neck. Unfortunately, this tends to eventually lead to chronic ache, inflammation, stiffness and loss of range of motion.


What are many of the symptoms of whiplash? The headache can be a frequent symptom of a cervical strain. In addition to headaches along with neck pain, other symptoms of whiplash may include:


1. Neck stiffness
2. Shoulder pain
3. Back Soreness
4. Changes in vision
5. Dizziness
6. Abnormal sensations in the neck, hands and arms


Dr. Amit offers a wide variety of Chiropractic treatment techniques and therapies to assist patients with headaches, neck pain, back pain and many other conditions. Bowmanville Chiropractic and Wellness Center also serves patients in the surrounding areas in Canada.


Car accidents are something that can bring you completely down. Physical pain comes hand in hand with the mental trauma which is a great deal of taxation on you. Disability of following the ever flowing life force, bringing the full fledged working spirit from within not only harms your career but also the entire system. So it is better to give up in the hands of experts for the best treatments possible. Car accident treatment Bowmansville is one such expertise where you can come with trust for help.

Automobile accidents can happen anytime and anyplace, causing damage to your vehicle, other property, and most importantly your body. Research shows that occupants can be injured considerably more than what you’d expect from a dented fender or a broken taillight. This same research also demonstrates that due to the accelerative forces in a low-speed accident, the injury may actually be greater than that of a higher-speed crash.

Even a minor automobile accident can have major effects on your health. When one automobile is struck by another, thousands of pounds of force are exerted on the neck and spine. Whiplash occurs when the head and neck are thrown or snapped back and forth very quickly. The painful result is injury to the ligaments, soft tissue, and discs of the neck and spine. Whiplash also causes impingement, stretching, or irritation of the nerves and the spinal cord. Whiplash can also cause headaches, numbness, pins and needles in the face, chest, arms or hands, anxiety, neck pain, back pain, ear ringing, dizziness, hearing loss and blurred vision.
