We’re often asked by parents: “how young is too young for my child to be adjusted?”  Our answer is right up there: “I like them wiped off first.”  Essentially, we want to see them as soon as you’re ready to bring them to us.  It’s a lot easier to raise healthy kids than it is to try to correct and combat issues later in adulthood. Chiropractic care is extremely safe and effective for children, whether you are bringing them as part of a preventative, healthy choice or to address a specific issue that chiropractic care may...

You may have read my earlier post about the “Dirty Dozen” foods with the highest pesticide amounts that you should always purchase organic to eliminated approximately 80% of your pesticide intake.  The “Clean Fifteen” are the foods with the lowest pesticide amounts that are pretty safe to eat conventionally grown.

The Dirty Dozen

Organic food benefits not only consumers, but producers and the environment.  Organic farmers are not exposed to the chemical pesticides and fertilizers that conventional farmers use, which in turn reduces chemical run-off into the soil and surrounding water.  This keeps the environment healthier and ensures that the soil will continue to produce excellent crops for years to come.  But reduced chemical use on the crops also means that the individuals eating organic fruits and veggies are swallowing fewer chemicals. Unfortunately,...
