  1. 1. Health-Fit ChiropracTIPS EXERCISE KEEPS YOUR BRAIN FIT TOO The American public continues the ever-increasing trend of adopting sedentary lifestyles and obesity. Many of our schools are cutting physical education classes across the country despite scientists having the strongest evidence in human history that exercise is critical in supporting human health. Although we are seemingly not prioritizing fitness and exercise, most of us recognize and are aware of the fact that exercise is good for us and should be an important part of a healthy lifestyle. Something that many of us don’t consider though is the mental impact of physical activity. Evidence is emerging that exercise can significantly prevent age related cognitive decline. New studies continue to support the belief that both dementia and Alzheimer’s can, to some extent, be prevented or the progression curtailed with an appropriate exercise regime. One study suggests that after one year of mid-life aerobic exercise there were significant changes in associated brain volume of the affected brain structures as well as improved spatial memory. There is even evidence to suggest that it works as a preventative measure too. Just one hour of exercise a week can reduce your risk of dementia by as much as 50%. Not only does exercise help with cognitive and memory decline, but also has an effect in depression. When you exercise, your body releases endorphins which interact with your brain and reduce your perception of pain as well as provide a positive feeling in the body, similar to that of morphine. For example, the feeling that follows a run or workout is often described as “euphoric.” That feeling, known as a “runner’s high,” can be accompanied by a positive and energizing outlook on life. BUTTER IN YOUR COFFEE??? Have you ever wondered why there’s so many people talking about putting butter in your coffee? Well there’s actually a point to it that might make a big difference in your energy levels or waist line. When people consume coffee in the morning with a high fat source like butter, coconut oil, heavy whipping cream (or I’ve even heard of a raw egg) it takes the place of their breakfast and leaves them feeling satisfied and not hungry. The lack of sugar that these offerings provide have the body (and brain) operating off of a different energy source (different than the normal sugar based energy) which could lead to increased energy and believe it or not, increased fat burning throughout your morning. The next time you’re in our office, ask us about our favorite choice of coffee! Fun Facts• One out of 20 people have an extra rib • The second best-selling game of all time is Jenga.

Our on-site care program reduces recordable rates and worker’s compensation claims by focusing on soft tissue discomforts and injury preven- tion. In 2006, OSHA provided a ruling and documentation employee also receives med- ical treatment, a job transfer, restricted work activity, or days away from work, it would then be considered a recordable injury. The A.R.T. provider and the safety manager/human resources department work in conjunction to follow the correct care path for each em- ployee. This will decrease the company’s worker’s compensa- tion costs considerably. SITTING: WHAT THE RESEARCH SAYS Over the past year, you may have read an article or watched a news clip on how sitting is the new smoking. While it may seem like sensational reporting meant to draw you in, the truth is that we are sitting down more than ever before in history and an abundance of research has shown that it is detrimental to our health. Sitting has become so prevalent and so pervasive that we don’t even question how much we’re doing it. And, everyone else is doing it, so it doesn’t even occur to us that it’s not okay. In that sense, sitting has become the smoking of our generation. We now spend more time sitting throughout the day than we spend sleeping. This type of sedentary lifestyle is literally killing us. Studies have shown that sitting shortens life expectancy, and is associated with increased incidence of heart disease, type 2 diabetes, and certain cancers. Research has also shown that sitting is an independent risk factor for these conditions; meaning exercise alone will not decrease your risks. What does make a difference is nonexercise activity. There’s a difference between official exercise activity like running, biking, or lifting weights, and so-called nonexercise activity, like walking to your car, mowing your lawn, or simply standing. In other words, you need to take every opportunity you have, throughout the day, to get out of your chair. Here are a few simple suggestions you can do at work and at home: • Take active micro-breaks. Getting up for a minute or two at least once an hour can make a huge difference. Studies have also shown that it increases productivity. • Stand while talking on the phone or during a conference call. • Take the stairs instead of the elevator. • Walk or ride your bike to work. If you do drive, park farther away. • Consider getting a standing desk and change your working position throughout the day.
