5 Reasons to get Chiropractic Care while Pregnant
Chiropractic care is a completely natural, drug-free way to keep your body healthy and functioning optimally.
It’s safe, and good for all people of any age and health situation, but it has some particular benefits for pregnant mothers. Regular chiropractic adjustments can help ensure a healthier and more pleasant pregnancy, labor, and birth. Many chiropractors are specifically trained in special adjusting techniques for pregnant women. Make sure your chiropractor knows when you’re expecting so he can adjust his technique accordingly.
1. Back Pain Relief
Designed to keep your spine in alignment, chiropractic care can help prevent and relieve back pain associated with pregnancy. Pregnancy is tough on the body’s skeletal structure, especially as baby grows and gets heavier! The weight of your expanding belly changes your posture and spinal curvature, and chiropractic can help correct posture problems and help your spine keep its intended curve.
2. Ease Pregnancy Symptoms
Chiropractic can help ease pregnancy symptoms, such as nausea and vomiting. It doesn’t work for all women, but chiropractic is one way to try to get some relief from morning sickness. If the nausea and vomiting is due in part to nerves pinched by out-of-place vertebrae, an adjustment will help remedy the problem.
5 Tips for Healthy Eating During the Holidays
Your recipe for staying on track no matter what’s cooking.
‘Tis the season for family, festivity, and food—lots of food. Temptations are everywhere, and parties and travel disrupt daily routines. What’s more, it all goes on for weeks.
How do you stick to your diabetes meal plan when everyone around you seems to be splurging? Here are 5 tips that can help:
1. Holiday-Proof Your Plan
You may not be able to control what food you’re served, and you’re bound to see other people eating a lot of tempting treats. Meet the challenges armed with a plan:
- Eat close to your usual times to keep your blood sugar steady. If your meal is served later than normal, eat a small snack at your usual mealtime and eat a little less when dinner is served.
- Invited to a party? Offer to bring a healthy dish along.
- If you have a sweet treat, cut back on other carbs (like potatoes and bread) during the meal.
- Don’t skip meals to save up for a feast. It will be harder to keep your blood sugar in control, and you’ll be really hungry and more likely to overeat.
If you slip up, get right back to healthy eating with your next meal.
