Hi Everybody Dr. Norris Here,
I hope you had a great holiday season. I did a bit of travel to see family. But I did manage to take some much needed time off. Last year was good for Norris Chiropractic. We saw almost 200 new patients and were able to help a lot of people with painful conditions. This year I will continue to provide quality affordable health care.
As to New Year’s resolutions, I am keeping it simple. I resolve to eat more plants, keep moving and make it to 2017. Here is an interesting story.
Doing The Right Thing
One of the most common resolutions is to improve oneself. Eating better, exercising, more sleep or perhaps relaxing more is your thing. Ever wonder what would happen if you tried to follow every health rule ever written?
What if you genuinely spent a year learning and living by the advice of every diet and workout plan you could find? Author AJ Jacobs decided to give it a try. His previous endeavors include: Spending a year living biblically and following every rule mentioned in the Bible. He became a single woman for awhile to investigate dating. He’s also the Editor at Large of Esquire magazine and an author who has published several books about his experiments. So he was serious with this “abide by every health rule” experiment.
He experimented with near starvation, radical diets, numerous exercise routines, endurance races, and more. His conclusion was this: You’ve got to be very careful about who you listen to.
During his experiment, he met people who told him all kinds of bizarre things, including the idea that you should drill holes in your head to mix up the electric pathways. His takeaway: Don’t pay attention to every health fad you may hear of. He concluded with: “Whatever you love, whatever makes you happy, is what’s going to be best for you. The healthiest lifestyles include moderation in all things, including workouts and diet, and a mental awareness of the messages your body is sending to you."
Well said AJ. Whatever improvements you want to make in 2016, if they somehow cause pain,
don't suffer I can help.
Because you don't have time for pain!HEALTH TIP: The Detox Diet
