June 2018 Newsletter

Here we are at the end of June! How have you found these last few weeks of crispy cold mornings? While it may not warm your toes or your nose, the news of the wonderful events your Family Chiropractic team are putting on in the next few months may fill you with lots of warm fuzzies. Coming up are events and workshops to inspire, empower and help you to transform your health and your life! Change Your Thoughts to Improve Your Health When people think about improving their health, they often want to change their diet, exercise more or add in a new supplement… or 10. While all of these things can bring about positive change what many people don’t realise is that it is our thoughts and beliefs that drive our health decisions. Dr. Stuart will teach you tools and strategies to change your thinking but he will also show you how to get your body and mind in a state to make it possible for effective change to happen. This workshop is complimentary for practice members and their guests.

Do you need to eliminate gluten completely?

Out of all the man-made foods in the world, it seems most individuals’ immune systems respond dramatically to wheat and gluten the most. There are well over 50 autoimmune diseases linked to gluten, why is this? In the 1970’s wheat was hybridised, it went from a short stumpy crop to a huge tall crop which had the ability to yield a lot more than the natural form. This resulted in the wheat being mass produced creating an extremely financially viable product.

It becomes a time of over-indulging (and not necessarily in a good way), uncomfortably full bellies and afternoon sugar comas (also known as the obligatory post Christmas lunch nap)!
