How Do Nutrition And Chiropractic Work Together?

Written by Melissa Crispell, CNS, CNHP& Dr. Lisette Miller, DC. Posted in Integrative Health.

Functional Medicine &Integrative Health
Functional Medicine is an integrative, science-based healthcare approach that medical doctors, doctors of chiropractic, osteopathic doctors, nurse practitioners, and nutritionists  use to treat illness and promotes wellness by focusing on the bio-chemically unique aspects of each patient, and then individually tailoring interventions to restore physiological, psychological, and structural balance.

Although, functional nutrition seems to be more accurate as everything is food. Our primary foods are what we put in our mouths and our secondary foods are how we nourish our bodies. A balance of primary and secondary foods is imperative for optimal whole-body function.

How to Avoid a Crisis of Illness!

Written by Dr Scott E Rosenthal. Posted in Family Health.

Family Health“But doctor, I didn’t do anything! I don’t know what happened! It’s just my bad luck!” Have you ever made such a statement? One day you feel great and the next it all seems to fall apart.
The “surprise attack” of illness is due in part to the silent nature of the disease process. Symptoms may wait to appear after weeks, months, or years have passed. Sometimes they never arise and no warning is given. It is not uncommon to hear about a “perfectly healthy” person suddenly passing away. The real question is, “What qualifies as healthy?”

TRUST YOUR GUT WHEN IT COMES TO YOUR HEALTH

Written by Dr Jessica Bohl. Posted in Family Health.

Trust your Gut

The phrase ‘gut health’ describes effective digestion and an optimal state of well-being. Just like the saying ‘happy wife, happy life’, ‘healthy gut, healthy life’ may be true as well.

Our digestive tract acts as a guardian between the outside world and the internal workings of our bodies.  If this barrier is healthy, it allows nutrients into the body while at the same time blocking foreign invaders.

Snapper with Roasted Grape Tomatoes, Garlic and Basil

Written by Brian Strauss. Posted in Seafood & Fish.

Red Snapper with Roasted Grape tomatosSnapper with Roasted Grape Tomatoes, Garlic
and Basil
2 cups grape tomatoes, halved
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
3 cloves garlic, sliced
1 teaspoon balsamic vinegar
Pinch or two red pepper flakes (to taste)
Kosher salt
1/2 cup fresh basil leaves, tear or cut with scissors
4 (6-ounce) snapper fillets, with skin
Freshly ground black pepper

Preheat oven to 350 degrees, position rack in the middle of the oven.
Toss the tomatoes with 1 tablespoon of the olive oil, garlic, vinegar, pepper flakes, and salt, to taste. Spread out on a baking sheet and roast until the tomatoes get juicy, about 15 minutes. Transfer tomatoes to a bowl and toss with the basil.
Dry the fish very well all over. To keep the fish from curling in the pan, lightly slash a cross-hatch pattern into the skin of the fish with a sharp knife. Brush the rounded flesh side of the fish with the remaining olive oil. Season with salt and pepper, to taste. Heat a large non-stick skillet over medium-high heat. Place the fish, seasoned side down, in the oil, and cook undisturbed over high heat, until the fish turns both opaque along the edges and golden on the bottom, about 3 minutes. Flip the snapper and turn off the heat and let the fish cook in the residual heat of the pan until the fillets are firm but still juicy, about 1 minute more.
Top with the tomatoes
