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…..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!

What is Contemporary Medical Acupuncture

Contemporary medical acupuncture (also known as functional integrated acupuncture or biomedical acupuncture) takes the traditional form of Chinese acupuncture and modifies it using modern day scientific understandings of human physiology and anatomy. At first glance contemporary medical acupuncture appears very similar to the traditional Chinese approach, as the same small, thin needles are placed in specific points on the body for a period of 5 to 30 minutes and removed. However, there are considerable differences between the approaches.

 Contemporary vs. Traditional

In contemporary medical acupuncture, treatment is given after a conventional medical/neuro-functional diagnosis. This diagnosis is made based on established methods of a medical history taking and physical examination. After the diagnosis is established, the practitioner will use acupuncture needles to influence the physiology of specific structures that were identified in the initial examination. Needle placement will be determined based on specific goals to affect local tissue structures, target specific spinal segmental outflow, as well as influence central regulatory effects on the nervous system. In summary the points used in this form of acupuncture are chosen based on their specific neuroanatomical and neuromuscular location related to your specific pain or dysfunction. The practitioner will typically use contemporary medical acupuncture as another treatment tool along with other therapeutic approaches such as: manual joint manipulation and mobilization, soft tissue techniques, stretching and rehabilitation exercises.

On the other hand, a traditional Chinese acupuncturist or Nathuropathic doctor will also do a very comprehensive history/physical examination but make a diagnosis based on complex theories regarding disturbance in the body’s balance (energy) that need to be addressed with treatment. This traditional form of acupuncture involves the similar use of small needles inserted at specific points on the body, but aimed to help to regulate the flow of energy or Qi. Dysregulation of this energy in the body is stated to be at the root of all ailments and disease. By regulating the state of qi with the needles, traditional acupuncturists aim to help guide the body back into homeostasis. While modern science may find it difficult to explain in conventional medical terms, traditional Chinese acupuncture has been around for more than 2500 years and has produced positive results for centuries.

Since contemporary medical acupuncture lends itself to the same method of understanding musculoskeletal complaints, it makes for an excellent clinical tool for many modern day manual practitioners to add to their current toolkit, including chiropractors, physiotherapists, massage therapy and more.

Commonly Treated Conditions (based on current evidence):

  • Neck pain
  • Upper limb pain, (especially rotator cuff tendonitis, tennis elbow and golfer’s elbow)
  • Lower limb pain
  • Low back pain
  • Chronic knee pain
  • Myofascial pain – including myofascial trigger points
  • Fibromyalgia

neck pain

Our neck, likewise called the cervical spine, starts at the base of the skull and contains seven little vertebrae. Unimaginably, the cervical spine bolsters the full weight of your head, which is all things considered around 12 pounds. While the cervical spine can move your head almost every way, this adaptability makes the neck entirely powerless to agony and damage.

The neck’s powerlessness to damage is expected to a limited extent to biomechanics. Exercises and occasions that influence cervical biomechanics incorporate expanded sitting, dreary development, mishaps, falls and hits to the body or head, ordinary maturing, and regular mileage. Neck pain can be troublesome, and it can have an assortment of causes.

Here are the absolute most average reasons for neck pain:

Damage and Accidents: An unexpected constrained development of the head or neck toward any path and the subsequent “bounce back” the other way is known as whiplash. The abrupt “whipping” movement harms the encompassing and supporting tissues of the neck and head. Muscles respond by fixing and contracting, making muscle weakness, which can result in agony and solidness.

Serious whiplash can likewise be related with damage to the inter vertebral joints, circles, tendons, muscles, and nerve roots. Auto crashes are the most widely recognized reason for whiplash.

Becoming Older: Degenerative clutters, for example, osteoarthritis, spinal stenosis, and degenerative circle illness legitimately influence the spine.

Osteoarthritis, a typical joint issue, causes dynamic decay of ligament. The body responds by framing bone goads that influence joint movement.

Spinal stenosis causes the little nerve ways in the vertebrae to tight, packing and catching nerve roots. Stenosis may cause neck, shoulder, and arm pain, just as deadness, when these nerves are unfit to work typically.

Degenerative plate illness can cause decrease in the versatility and tallness of intervertebral circles. After some time, a plate may swell or herniate, causing shivering, deadness, and pain that keeps running into the arm.

Everyday Life: Poor stance, corpulence, and frail stomach muscles regularly disturb spinal parity, making the neck twist forward to redress. Stress and enthusiastic pressure can make muscles fix and contract, bringing about agony and solidness. Postural pressure can add to incessant neck pain with indications stretching out into the upper back and the arms.

Chiropractic Care of Neck Pain

Amid your visit, your specialist of chiropractic will perform tests to find the wellspring of your pain and will ask you inquiries about your present side effects and cures you may have officially attempted.

For instance:

  • When did the pain begin?
  • What have you accomplished for your neck pain?
  • Does the pain emanate or travel to different pieces of your body?
  • Does anything decrease the pain or exacerbate it?

Your specialist of chiropractic will likewise do physical and neurological tests. In the physical test, your specialist will watch your stance, scope of movement, and physical condition, taking note of development that causes pain.

Your specialist will feel your spine, note its ebb and flow and arrangement, and feel for muscle fit. A check of your shoulder region is additionally all together. Amid the neurological test, your specialist will test your reflexes, muscle quality, other nerve changes, and pain spread.

In certain cases, your chiropractor may arrange tests to help analyze your condition. A x-beam can demonstrate limited plate space, breaks, bone goads, or joint inflammation. A mechanized hub tomography filter (a CT or CAT check) or a magnetic resonance imaging test (a MRI) can demonstrate protruding circles and herniations.

In the event that nerve harm is suspected, your specialist may arrange an extraordinary test called electromyography (an EMG) to quantify how rapidly your nerves react.

Specialists of chiropractic are traditionalist consideration specialists; their extent of training does exclude the utilization of medications or medical procedure. On the off chance that your chiropractor analyze a condition outside of this preservationist scope, for example, a neck crack or a sign of a natural ailment, the person in question will allude you to the suitable medicinal doctor or pro.

The person in question may likewise request authorization to educate your family doctor regarding the consideration you are getting to guarantee that your chiropractic care and medicinal consideration are legitimately planned.

Neck Adjustments

A neck change (otherwise called cervical control) is an exact methodology connected to the joints of the neck, normally by hand.

A neck change attempts to improve the portability of the spine and to reestablish scope of movement; it can likewise build development of the abutting muscles. Patients regularly see an improved capacity to turn and tilt the head, and a decrease of agony, soreness, and firmness.

Obviously, your chiropractor will build up a program of consideration that may consolidate more than one sort of treatment, contingent upon your own needs. Notwithstanding control, the treatment plan may incorporate assembly, rub or rehabilitative activities, or something different.

Accupuncture

Everybody who has been exposed to straining work and positions has experienced neck pain—only in varying degrees.

In fact, Chronic neck pain is one of the most common pain issues faced by employees and students alike, especially after a long day at work or in school where the neck muscles can be strained from poor posture, whether when you’re leaning over your computer or hunching over your desk.

Causes of Neck pain

While there can be a myriad of factors contributing to your neck pain, experts say that these reasons may be the culprit:

Muscle Strains:

It is very common and possible that your neck hurts because of muscle overuse. Did you know that you use your neck muscles in doing the simplest of tasks such as reading in bed or gritting your teeth?

NERVE COMPRESSION:

Herniated disks or bone spurs in the vertebrae of your neck can press on the nerves branching out from the spinal cord can cause neck pains as well.

INJURIES:

If you have been involved in a rear-end auto collisions which often result in whiplash injury, chances are you can experience neck pains sooner or later. This is caused by the straining the soft tissues of the neck when the head is jerked backward and then forward.

DISEASES:

Certain types of diseases, such as rheumatoid arthritis, meningitis or cancer, can include neck pain as one of the symptoms.

Signs and symptoms include:

  • Pain that’s often worsened by holding your head in one place for long periods such as when driving or working in front of a computer;
  • Muscle tightness and spasms;
  • Decreased ability to move your head;
  • Headaches

While some people can stand Neck pain and don’t mind it at all, a number of cases can be severe enough that it can adversely affect the quality of one’s life.

Because of its position and range of motion, and because it plays a vital role in the support of the head, the neck is more subject to injury than any other portion of the spine.

How Can Acupuncture Help?

Regardless of what caused the neck pain to begin, many people find relief with acupuncture when seemingly nothing else helped.

While this maybe a relatively new practice in the West, Acupuncture has been around the East for centuries now and has proven to aid numerous medical conditions time and time again. In fact, it is an ancient technique, refined through centuries of use.

How does it work?

This traditional Chinese technique uses thin needles that are inserted into the body at specific spots called “acupoints”.

It is based on the ancient belief that blocked chi, or energy is the one that causes pain in the area of the body. By inserting the needles to a certain acupoints, the energy will be unblocked and therefore pain will be relieved.

Many studies and medical trials have conducted to test the legitimacy of the practice and an impressive number of researchers have shown acupuncture to be effective in relieving certain types of neck pain, particularly those caused by whiplash.

Scientific researchers and clinicians have been conducting clinical trials on the use of acupuncture for neck pain since the 1980’s.

In fact, an analysis of 29 studies with a total of 17,922 participants with back and neck pain, osteoarthritis, chronic headache and shoulder pain found that people with those conditions experienced significantly more relief with acupuncture than those who had no treatment.

These studies suggest acupuncture can treat degenerative neck disorders such as ankylosing spondylosis and cervical spondylosis; in many cases. Acupuncture has worked for patients whose conditions could not be solved using conventional approaches.

How to Prevent Neck Pain

In the end, prevention is still always better than cure. Here are some of the healthy practices and tricks on how you can avoid neck pain:

  • Practice good posture. When standing and sitting, be sure your shoulders are in a straight line over your hips and your ears are directly over your shoulders.
  • Adjust your desk, chair and computer so that the monitor is at eye level. Knees should be slightly lower than hips. Use your chair’s armrests.
  • Quit smoking. Smoking can put you at higher risk of developing neck pain.
  • Take frequent breaks. If you travel long distances or work long hours at your computer, get up, move around and stretch your neck and shoulders.
  • Avoid tucking the phone between your ear and shoulder when you talk. Use a headset or speakerphone instead.
  • Avoid carrying heavy bags with straps over your shoulder.
  • Sleep in a good position. Your head and neck should be aligned with your body. Use a small pillow under your neck. Try sleeping on your back with your thighs elevated on pillows, which will flatten your spinal muscles.

However, many folks, especially those who work at computersordesks, have cervical pains. Studies show that a straightened or reversed curve weakens the deep muscles of the neck, since these muscles are forced to hold the spine in an anatomically ill-suited position.

A flawed cervical curve disturbs the neck’s biomechanics (the way joints, bones, and musclesmove together). Changed spinal biomechanics are related with an increased probability of osteoarthritis another painful illness.
