Chiropractor Bloemfontein ...
Whilst headaches can occasionally be serious, the vast majority of
chronic recurring headaches are caused by a problem in the upper neck
for which your chiropractor is your best port of call. Consider for
example this What causes headache CaseFile in which a lady was for years
told her headaches were caused by arthritis of the neck.
What causes headache CaseFile ...
Of course there are many causes of headache, meningitis being one of them. Headache, high temperature and a very stiff neck? Don't visit your local chiropractor, get to the emergency rooms NOW. Meningitis ...

"Losing one glove is certainly painful,
but nothing compared to the pain,
of losing one, throwing away the other,
and finding the first one again."

Low back pain @ Chiropractor Bethlehem Brandfort
There's heaps of scientific evidence now confirming that your chiropractor should be your first port of call if you have uncomplicated Low Back pain ...
What is perhaps more controversial is whether a chiropractor can help you with a severe slipped disc with radiating pain and a foot drop. But every chiropractor treats these on a regular basis, sometimes succeeding, sometimes not.
Much depends on whether you are prepared to
follow your chiropractor's instructions down to the last detail. One
sneeze can ruin everything, so can sitting and the greatest factor,
whether you go for chiropractic or surgery is whether you are prepared
to stop smoking for two months. Discs need oxygen to heal.
Slipped disc ...
Slow food, made fast
Good health is much more than having your spine-in-line. Healthy joints demand the right juices for their 'hyaline cartilage'. That's the super-smooth shiny white stuff that lines the joints. Research done at Harvard Medical School proved that a chicken bones bouillon is extremely beneficial for 'hardnekkig' arthritis.
Good joint health is also about plenty of Omega-3 oils in your diet, and limiting Omega-6 oils, read seed oils. The best way of course is fatty fish like salmon, pilchards and sardines, but they are hugely expensive far from the ocean. That means more
Fish oil ... but perhaps it repeats on you. Flax seed nutrition information is an inexpensive alternative. Grind the seeds (less than R20 /kg) rather than flax seed oil as it goes rancid very quickly. Plus the lignans in flax seeds are vital anti-cancer food.
Try making your own dips. You can rattle up our Moutabel Baba Ghannouj literally in ten minutes if you have fresh brinjals, but you need my favourite seed paste, Sesame
Tahini ... much nicer than peanut butter. Make it at home in a jiffy.
Our Smoked Salmon Dip recipe is without equal. Perhaps using smoked trout. Smoked salmon dip recipe ... rich in omega-3 fatty acids.
And of course strong bones need plenty of exercise. This next page I call the most important page at Chiropractic Help ...
Causes of osteoporosis ...
The saying "prevention is better than a cure" has new meaning when talking about osteroporosis. Because there is no cure! And it's better that women should assume that they will get at least osteopaenia and take the right action when still young. Like walking regularly...

"Occasional smoking or just second-hand smoke damages DNA causing cancer."
"Most smokers are already well aware of their increased risk of acquiring lung cancer. Fewer people know about the patients I see every day, those with cancer of the lips, mouth, nose, throat, sinuses or larynx (where the voice box is located).
These cancers account for about 6 percent of all cancer diagnosed annually in the U.S. Ninety percent of these cancer victims can blame their illness directly on tobacco use."
Paul Donald, M.D.
Over 1,000 Americans per day die directly from smoking.
