Headphones and Peppermints for a Killer Workout

Listen to Music to Achieve a Better Workout

Next time you are gearing up for your workout, don’t forget your headphones. Listening to music while working out is a simple and very effective way to enhance your performance and get more out of your exercise routine.
Research continues to demonstrate that exercisers rate their session with music as much more positive than their session without. Listening to music during your workout boosts your need to tackle the next level of fitness, adopt a more varied regimen of routines and stay focused longer. This can push you past a wall or plateau that you may have hit. Upbeat tracks encourages more speed, allowing many athletes to achieve their personal best record performances while listening to their favorite tunes.
When you are exercising, music can reduce your idea of how hard you have to work. Hearing music you associate with peak performance will fire areas of the brain that deal with your long-term memory. It can inspire you and help you shift up a gear.

While I do see an excellent opportunity to get more efficiency out of the time invested in exercise with music, I can understand that many people might choose to enjoy their workouts in silence and unplugged. This can be a stress-fighting, peaceful, and meditative opportunity in the day that is all too often filled with screen time and being constantly tuned-in to some form of distracting media.

Peppermint is Another Simple Performance Enhancer

The research regarding peppermint reveals that all performance parameters improve, churning out 50 percent more work, 20 percent more power, and a 25 percent greater time to exhaustion. Improvements were found across the board in all those physiological parameters, indicating increased respiratory efficiency. They may attribute these remarkable results to the peppermint opening up their airways, increasing ventilation and oxygen delivery.
Every measurable performance parameter improved, including more than 52 percent more vertical distance and 40 percent more horizontal distance covered. Increased respiratory efficiency proved to be the pivotal factor. The actual physical performance can be enhanced as well. Participants did more push-ups, ran faster and showed a trend toward stronger grip strength in the peppermint odor condition than in the non-odorized control condition.
You can achieve the performance enhancing benefits of peppermint in a few different ways. Diffuse the scent in the room as aromatherapy, apply peppermint oil topically on your upper lip, suck on a peppermint (be careful not to choke), or drink peppermint infused water during your workouts.

Ergonomic Sleeping Pillow

Stop Waking Up with Neck Pain and Headaches

We spend a third of our lives sleeping. Let’s make sure that our bodies find a comfortable resting position during this time. Most of our day-to-day tasks encourage our heads to drift forward over our shoulders causing tremendous strain on the muscles, tendons, joints, nerves and bones. Reading, driving, sitting, using cell phones and computers all stress our bodies into improper alignment. There are many serious repercussions in our health. Even a 30% decreased lung capacity has been found with anterior head carriage!

This ergonomic sleeping pillow’s design allows your head to rest lower, providing proper positioning of the neck during sleep. Many of my patients find great relief when switching to this more comfortable design. Buy it online now using this link!

Natural Alternatives for Heartburn and Acid Reflux Medications

heartburn acid reflux

Natural Alternatives for Heartburn and Acid Reflux Medications

Proton pump inhibitors (PPIs) like Nexium, Prilosec and Prevacid are taken daily by 20 million Americans for heartburn symptoms. These drugs have been linked to a heightened risk for a number of serious health problems that are much scarier than heartburn, including: chronic kidney disease, pneumonia, osteoporosis, hip fractures, dementia, heart disease, and heart attacks.
There are many ways to eliminate heartburn or acid reflux without drugs, starting with eating real food and probiotic-rich fermented foods like Kefir. There are also supplements available to help treat the underlying cause without the nasty side-effects.

The theory that heartburn symptoms is caused by too much stomach acid has been disproven. Most cases of heartburn are actually caused by one or more of the following scenarios:

  • Insufficient amounts of stomach acid: That burning sensation is not caused by too much acid, but instead by the rotting food that is sitting in your digestive track because it is not being properly broken down due to lack of stomach acids. Swap out your processed table salt for an unprocessed Himalayan salt. Take a tablespoon of raw, unfiltered apple cider vinegar before meals and/or take a hydrochloric acid supplement with meals. (Order a supplement here and enter code: BaltuskaChiropractic)
  • Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori) imbalance: While H. pylori can be part of your normal healthy microbiome, it can cause problems, including symptoms of acid reflux and heartburn if there’s an overgrowth of it. This typically occurs over time as a result of poor food choices. Avoid processed, high sugar “food-like” substances.
  • Hiatal hernia: Some people actually have anatomical abnormalities in which part of the stomach actually slides up through the ring that the esophagus descends. See a Chiropractor to have your stomach adjusted into proper position.
  • Food allergies: Hypersensitivity to foods often contribute to acid reflux.  Eliminate common culprits such as wheat, dairy, sugar, caffeine, alcohol, and nicotine.

The uncomfortable symptoms that your body is signaling to you is a cry for help to correct an imbalance before it becomes a larger problem. When you mask this signal with prescription drugs, it only allows for the imbalance to fester into something far worse that is harder to correct. If you have become dependent on medication to control your acid reflux and heartburn symptoms for some time, do not stop taking them “cold turkey”.  Instead, as you ease into some of the natural alternatives, slowly wean your dependency over time. It will be worth the hassle and effort to avoid the disasters of long term use.

What is a Charley Horse? How do I Stop these Muscle Cramps?!

causes-remedies-charley-horses

A charley horse, or muscle cramp, is a common condition that results in your muscles becoming tight, stiff and extremely painful.

These muscle cramps are referred to as “charley horses” because of Charley “Old Hoss” Radbourne, an 1880s-era baseball pitcher who often suffered from muscle cramps during games.

What Causes a Charley Horse?

About 1 in every 3 adults is affected by muscle cramps in their lower limbs. I get asked very frequently from my patients about these pains. In many cases, the pain is temporary and goes away on its own, but for some the cramps interfere with sleep, quality of life and daily activities. Anyone can get a charley horse, but they’re most common in the following populations and scenarios:

  • During exercise
  • At nighttime, especially in the elderly
  • In pregnant women
  • In people with neurological disease
  • During kidney dialysis

Many medications are also associated with muscle cramps, including statin cholesterol-lowering drugs, blood pressure drugs, certain asthma drugs, diuretics and more. In addition, the following factors may also increase your risk of a muscle cramp:

  • Poor blood circulation in your legs
  • Muscle fatigue
  • Dehydration
  • Mineral deficiencies, including magnesium, potassium or calcium

Is Magnesium Deficiency Causing Your Charley Horses?

Up to 80 percent of Americans are not getting enough magnesium and may be deficient. Magnesium is often thought of primarily as a mineral for your heart and bones, but this is misleading. Researchers have now detected 3,751 magnesium-binding sites on human proteins, indicating that its role in human health and disease may have been vastly underestimated.

If you suffer from headaches or charley horses, low levels of magnesium could be to blame. Magnesium is necessary for activating muscles and nerves, and a key sign of ongoing magnesium deficiency can be headaches, muscle contractions and cramps like charley horses.

Low Potassium Levels May Also Trigger a Charley Horse

Potassium, a mineral and electrolyte, is essential for your cells, tissues and organs to function properly. It plays a vital role in heart health, digestive and muscular function, bone health and more. One of the symptoms of low potassium levels is muscle cramps.

While potassium is found in many foods commonly consumed in the U.S. such as fruits, vegetables, dairy products, salmon, sardines and nuts.

Potassium is a nutrient that needs to be kept in proper balance with sodium in your blood. If you consume too much sodium, which is common if you eat a lot of processed foods, you’ll have an increased need for potassium.

Others who are at particular risk of low potassium, or hypokalemia, are those with chronic malabsorption syndromes, such as Crohn’s disease, or those taking heart medicine. However, anyone who eats a poor diet with an excess of processed foods and not enough fresh, whole foods is potentially at risk of inadequate potassium levels and related muscle cramps.

Green vegetable juicing is an excellent way to ensure you’re getting enough nutrients for optimal health. Some additional rich sources of potassium are: Lima beans, winter squash, cooked spinach, and avocados.

Too Little Calcium May Trigger Muscle Cramps

Low blood levels of calcium may increase the excitability of nerve endings and the muscles they stimulate. Good sources of calcium include nuts, seeds and raw, organic, grass-fed dairy, and vegetables. Homemade bone broth is another excellent source. Simply simmer leftover bones over low heat for an entire day to extract the calcium from the bones. You can use this broth for soups and stews or drink it straight.

What to Do If You Get a Charley Horse

A charley horse often occurs without notice, sometimes waking you up from sound sleep. If you’re lying down when the pain starts, stand up and put some weight on your foot. (Easier said than done) Walking around will help to increase blood circulation to your muscles and possibly help to soothe and relax the cramp.

You can also try a simple stretch. If the cramp is in your calf in the back of your lower leg, pull your toes and foot upward until you feel a stretch in the back of your leg. You can also do this sitting down with your legs outstretched. Put a towel around your feet and gently pull both ends toward you until you feel a stretch.

Soaking in an Epsom salt bath may also help to relieve pain and possibly help with prevention. Massaging the area and applying a heat pack will increase blood flow to the area promoting healing and soothing pain.

Staying well-hydrated is also important for muscle cramp prevention. You’ll want to drink enough pure filtered water so that your urine is pale yellow in color. In addition, performing regular stretching exercises on your legs may help reduce your risk of a charley horse.

Chiropractic care will ensure that your skeletal system is in proper alignment and that your nervous system is functioning well. Regular adjustments will balance any bio-mechanical malfunctions that cause undue tension in specific areas of the body. Schedule your Adjustment online now at this link or call 913-283-9803.

Genes Load the Gun – Lifestyle Choices Pull the Trigger

epigenetic chiropracticWe once thought that the human genome served as a recipe for the body and that when you end up with “bad genes” there is simply nothing that can be done. Sometimes “bad things” happen to “good people” and that was long thought to be the end of story. The fact of the matter is that what you are born with is only the beginning of the story, and every day, through the choices you make in the area of diet, exercise, meditation, and Chiropractic care, you are actually recreating all aspects of your body. 

Although the genes you are born with can be thought of as loading your genetic gun, it is your life choices that determine when and even if those genes are ever fired. This is why a woman who carries a gene for breast cancer does not have breast cancer the moment she is born or perhaps even several decades into her life. Something must trigger the expression of that gene in her body. A recent study revealed that by practicing intermittent fasting, women can significantly reduce the chances of expressing the genes responsible for developing breast cancer. With life choices, we can choose whether or not to express certain genes.

There are thousands of epigenetic switches on each of our 25,000 genes and the position of those switches — whether the gene is turned on or off — is what determines when and if any given gene expresses in the body. 

So the question is, what controls expression of the genes? The pharmaceutical industry is spending billions of dollars looking for pills that will turn these epigenetic switches on and off. Science has already discovered the most powerful keys to the epigenetic switches. A clean diet, consistent exercise, centered emotions, daily meditation and Chiropractic care have all been shown to have powerfully positive epigenetic impacts. Currently, it is estimated that somewhere between 70 and 90% of our genes can be turned on and off epigenetically.

When you eat processed and conventional food, fail to exercise, and struggle to manage stress in life, you are playing a potentially deadly game of genetic Russian roulette. You cannot  continue to abuse the body without suffering in health. The beauty of how our bodies come to be is that we are now creating our body’s future experience with the choices made today.

Foam Rolling: What’s the Point and How do I do it?

Foam RollerWhat is the point of foam rolling?

Foam rolling can provide health benefits by breaking down soft tissue adhesions and scar tissue that is in your fascia. Fascia is a three dimensional fibrous matrix that interconnects and surrounds all cells of the body including muscles, bones, and joints, providing integrity and strength.

Abnormal fascia can cause chronic pain, reduced flexibility, and decreased athletic performance. Foam rolling can be an effective, inexpensive and convenient way to keep your body healthy, limber, fit and flexible. I recommend a high density foam roller.

Whether you are a bodybuilder, athlete, or weekend warrior, foam rolling is important to allow strength along with flexibility and full range of motion.

How to use a foam roller:

Foam rolling is very simple to learn. Choose an area of tightness in your body and place it on top of the foam roller. Slowly roll along the muscle groups end to end until you find a tender spot. Stop right on top of the painful area and hold it there until the pain diminishes by about 75%. Then continue scanning around to find another area to hold until you can’t find any other tender points to work on. Over time, with practice and repetition, you might be able to work out all of the tender points throughout your body and then keep the foam roller handy for maintenance and prevention. You can increase pressure over the soft tissue by stacking your body parts upon one another or repositioning your body in many ways. You can use a foam roller before physical activity, or after, or both to reduce muscle soreness and speed recovery.

Target specific muscle groups with your foam roller:

Paraspinals

Paraspinals: With your arms behind your head, lie on your back, face up, with roller positioned in the middle of your back and your butt off the ground. Roll up and down along your spine.

Latissimus

Latissimus: Lie on your side with your arm overhead. Roll back and forth along your side from your arm pit to your mid-torso.

Gluteus Muscles-Minimus-Piriformis

Gluts / Piriformis: Sit on the foam roller while leaning forward into the side your working on. Roll up and down along the entire buttock area.

Hamstrings

Hamstrings: Sit with the foam roller on your hamstrings on the back of your thighs. Roll up and down along the back of your thighs.

Quadriceps

Quadriceps: Lay face down with the foam roller under your thighs. Roll up and down your quads and rock side to side to work the entire muscle group.

Iliotibial Band

Iliotibial  Band: Lay on your side with the foam roller on your lateral thigh. Roll up to your hip and down to your knee.

Calves Gastro-Soleus

Calves Gastro-Soleus: Sit with the foam roller behind your legs. Roll up and down along your calves from behind your knee to your heels.

Peroneals

Peroneals / Tibialis: Kneel over your foam roller and roll up to the knee and down to the ankle while focusing on the outer / lateral portion of your shin.

If you have pain/discomfort which does not resolve or worsens with exercise and foam rolling, I encourage you to consider Chiropractic care. After you are more comfortable with your foam roller, a full body routine might take about 10-minutes to complete. I recommended to foam roll anywhere from 3 to 5 times each week. Take this time to focus on deep breathing.

Sitting is the New Smoking – Even if Fit & Active, Desk Jobs are Bad for Health

sitting the new smokingSitting is the new smoking. It is killing us by the masses and we don’t know any better. Our human bodies are not meant to be folded in half for hours at a time. Sedentary lifestyle instigates every co-morbidity known to man. The muscles decondition and atrophy. The organs are squished, restricted in function and get backed up with viscous fluids. The joints degenerate and the nerves get irritated and inflamed. The brain slows with fog. The cardiovascular and lymphatic systems grow stagnant. All that is just the beginning! Compile years of desk time studying, reading, computer work, phone calls, meals, entertainment, and traveling then you have created a human body that is really good at one thing- sitting. We will adapt to the stresses and demands that are asked of us. If the challenge is only that of endurance in the seated posture, then we will lose our mobility. Use it or lose it!

Researchers are taking a closer look at how we position ourselves day to day and are repeatedly demonstrating that standing and moving is a much more safe, efficient way to spend our time as opposed to sitting. Those who are adopting standing workstations, where the day to day tasks can be performed in the upright standing position, are experiencing many benefits including: improved health profiles and lab-work, more efficiency and productivity, better mood, more enjoyment and fulfillment in career, more energy etc. They are finding less fatigue, irritability, brain fog and sick days. Choosing standing over sitting can reduce your risk of obesity, diabetes, heart disease and cancer.

The abundance of evidence is in. Standing desks need to replace the primitive seated work environment in school, home, and work. There are many options available to help you make the switch. You can simply prop up your monitor and keyboard with standard household tables, boxes, and stands of any kind.  Or you can invest in yourself with more elegant and custom fitted furniture like this one from www.anthrodesk.com/

This is the model that we use at Baltuska Chiropractic!

TableChiroCallnowTop Benefits of Chiropractic Care

First of all, your spine protects the most important system in your body, your central nervous system. When the vertebrae in your spine become restricted in their motion, the area begins to degenerate at a faster rate than normal. Degeneration is a normal part of aging, but lack of motion in a joint speeds up the degeneration process. We are now beginning to see advanced stages of spinal degeneration in people as young as 30. This is due to lack of activity and lack of motion in the spine. The health concern with spinal degeneration is that the space that protects your spinal nerves decreases. This directly affects spinal nerve function in a negative way, as the nerves become inflamed.

Some of the later symptoms of spinal degeneration are shooting pain down the arms and/or legs and muscle weakness. Any organ systems these spinal nerves innervate, are also affected and begin to not function as well as they should. This is why chiropractors stress getting adjusted on a regular basis even if you don’t show pain. Pain is often the later stage of the problem.

With that said, your central nervous system controls all function in your body. By keeping your spine aligned, you prevent degeneration of your spine and maintain the health of your central nervous system. Visit your chiropractor today and start feeling better! In the meantime, here are five more reasons why you should get adjusted on a regular basis:

1. Improved Posture & Relief of Back Pain

The research doesn’t lie, as chiropractic is proven to be effective time and time again for neck pain and low back pain. (1,2,4)

This is the most common reason patients seek chiropractic care. Chiropractors are very good at getting to the root cause of the problem, so that you get out of pain. Unfortunately, many patients wait for the pain to get severe before seeking chiropractic care. Pain is your body’s way of letting you know that something is wrong and should not be accepted as normal. One of the most common things we hear in the office before a patient seeks chiropractic care is that “I just thought I’d tough it out” or “I thought the pain would go away”.

Don’t let the pain get to this point. Just about every patient wishes they would have tried chiropractic sooner because of the relief it provides. Many patients also choose to get regular chiropractic care, once a week or once a month, so that their pain does not ever return or get worse.

2. Fewer Headaches

There are many reasons physiologically why chiropractic can help with your headaches. One reason would be that misalignments in your spine cause stress on your nervous system resulting in muscle tension, neck pain, and headaches. Getting adjusted helps remove this stress. (6)

Did you know that there are two arteries called the vertebral arteries that run between the cervical vertebrae in your neck? When the vertebrae in your neck become misaligned, this causes stress on the arteries, resulting in vascular headaches such as migraines. Adjustments help remove this stress and relieve migraine headaches. (3)

3. Less Stress & Less Anxiety

Everyone is familiar with the central nervous system, the brain and spinal cord. But, are you familiar with the autonomic nervous system? The parasympathetic and sympathetic systems make up the autonomic nervous system and are responsible for the body’s unconscious functions.

Adjustments to the spine help restore the balance between these two systems which is important for controlling stress and anxiety. (5) Again, often times after an adjustment, patient’s often report feeling “Lighter” and “More free”.

4. Greater Energy & Better Sleep

Adjustments positively affect the autonomic nervous system which can help improve energy. In addition, because the central nervous system is calmed after adjustments, the mind is able to relax and many patients often experience a very restful sleep. We’ve had many patients tell us that “last night was the best sleep I’ve had in years”, after an adjustment.(5)

5. Better Coordination & Flexibility

Muscle spasms and tightness occur when there are restrictions in your spine. By getting adjusted, the “tightness” is relieved and patients often feel like they can not only move better, but also feel like they can breathe better.  As mentioned before, the removal of this tightness can also help with tension headaches.(7)

6. Improved Immune System & Fewer Colds

The central nervous system and autonomic nervous system control immune system function. Adjustments improve their function which indirectly affects immune system function. In fact, Dr. Hampton adjusts his family whenever anyone starts to feel under the weather. By getting adjusted before the cold/sickness kicks in, it can help boost your immune system so that virus is defeated before it even gets started.

Believe it in Your Heart that Life is Miraculous

 

old-and-healthy

I was visiting with a good friend and patient of mine earlier this afternoon during his weekly adjustment. He was just about to turn 70 years old and told me about his monthly lunch get-together with his lifelong friends. Over the last few years, he has watched as his buddies let their health slip away. Poor diet and inactivity were catching up with them and causing many different kinds of problems in how they felt and how they functioned. What was once a cheery reunion full of laughter and nostalgic memories now seemed to be a pity party. Each guy would take turns complaining about a body part, explaining why they were worse off then the last guy. They would solemnly talk about their favorite activities that they missed doing since their health deteriorated. Then they would explain how some of the regulars couldn’t attend that day due to hospitalizations or doctors appointments.

This was difficult for my friend to watch. We agreed that the more often we see and hear of people suffering, the more we wanted to avoid such a demise. This would encourage us to take better care of ourselves and do our best to maintain good health in many different ways. I do understand that there are uncontrollable variables that cause pathology in us. I often wonder if I might end up the unlucky diagnosis of a completely random and fatal condition, simply because it would be so ironic for a guy who spends so much time, energy, money, and focus on trying to be as healthy as possible. An outside perspective might shake their head and think: “All that for nothing. What a shame.”

But as the healthy habits and practices become so ingrained, I wonder how others could get along living any other way. It really doesn’t take more than a couple of days falling out of the routines to start to feel worse in my mind, body and spirit. I crave the practices that nourish me. As I reflect upon my life’s calling, I continue to return back to similar ideas. I want to show you how to take care of yourself. I want you to feel vibrant, young, healthy, and alive. I want you to learn to love the practices that nourish your mind, body, and spirit so that you too can live your calling and passion. I smile SO BIG when a patient gets it. 

As for the sick and suffering, please know that you can always do more to nurture yourself. When the health maladies begin to overlap and the medications begin to mix dangerously within your body, the heaviness of self defeat is gargantuan. Know that what is holding you back the most is the limitations you have in your thoughts and your mind. Cyclical negative ideas will stop you in your tracks before even attempting to change your ways. Your body will freak out when you try to trade a bad habit for a healthy one. Break free from those old stories you have been telling yourself and your loved ones. Rewrite a vision for yourself. One that is fresh and revitalizing. Believe it in your heart that life is miraculous and be amazed and grateful when the healing ensues.

I’ll be looking forward to meeting you!
