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…..how 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,

Pavlina

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!

knee-pain-treatmentOsteoarthritis is often seen as an inevitable part of aging. As it turns out, people younger than 65 may also develop osteoarthritis.
