DR. HOWARD ZAMICK WILL BE IN THE OFFICE THIS SATURDAY FROM 8 a.m. - 12 noon., NEW PATIENTS WELCOME

Consider this, whenever you catch an edge snowboarding your body is whipped down (either frontwards or backwards) ending with your head. It's a lot like crack the whip! This abrasive reaction builds stress and tightness in your back, it's no wonder that learning how to snowboard is considered one of the most challenging and painful winter sports. Chiropractic care, acupuncture, and a warm massage therapy with heat packs can go a long way in keeping your alignment from slipping away - leaving your hurting for months. The sooner you get treatment, the more can be done in the way of prevention. Over the long term tight muscles adapt and hold in stress, it is best to help reset them early on

Starting out 2013 with a plan to get in the best shape you can is tough.  Regular exercise, healthy diet, decreased stress, and better sleeping habits are all important.  Over the holidays I read "WHEAT BELLY", and have changed my eating habits accordingly.  Here is another article I came across that explains the benefits of ALA, or alpha lipoic acid.

Shed Belly Fat With Alpha Lipoic Acid
ALA is a potent antioxidant capable of enhancing the activity of other antioxidants including vitamin C, vitamin E, glutathione and coenzyme Q10. ALA is known to assist with diabetes, blood sugar control and cellular energy. Often referred to as R+ lipoic acid, ALA plays a key role in the processing of proteins, carbohydrates and fats. It also influences the balancing of blood sugar levels by enhancing glucose uptake. In type 2 diabetics, ALA has been shown to inhibit glycosylation (the abnormal attachment of sugar to protein) and has been used to improve diabetic nerve damage. Basically, ALA acts as a coenzyme, or partner, in the production of energy by converting carbohydrates into energy. A study published in Hypertension (2002) investigated the effects of ALA on insulin resistance, hypertension and free radical stress. Researchers found that ALA reduced blood pressure and prevented insulin resistance in rats who were fed sugar water by preventing an increase in oxidative stress (which is typical after a high-sugar or-carb meal). As an extra bonus ALA has been shown to improve energy metabolism and decrease oxidative stress associated with aging. I recommend taking one sachet of the Metabolic Repair Pack twice daily for optimal results.
