2017 News

Beginning in 2017, Pace Family Chiropractic will welcome a new member to our team. Lori DiBartolo will be consulting with Dr. Sarah and acting as our Biomedical Educator.

Lori has spent the past 11 years researching Autism in hopes to find answers for her son who was diagnosed at 2 years old. Her determination to heal the medical attributes associated with her son's diagnosis has led to her to become a passionate advocate for other children and families. After attending nationwide conferences in biomedical healing and being advised by the two of the top doctors in the field, she began her consulting work for local families and agencies.

Collaborating with Dr. Pace will allow her clients to receive all the assistance they need in one place.  She is excited to work with our neurosensory program and is eager to share her expertise with all our patients. In her free time, Lori is a parent representative at CSE meetings in local school districts and a mom of 3. We are so excited to have Lori aboard and we encourage our families to reach out to her- she is a great resource!

Late Summer Eating

Summer is ending, and it seems as though fall is near. But did you know that according to Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) we are actually in a fifth season known as “late summer?” It is middle of the Chinese calendar, the time when the earth transitions from its more Yang nature to Yin – the time between the expansive growth of spring and summer to the cooler more dormant qualities of fall and winter. It is the season of balance. This season encompasses the last month of summer and the fifteen days surrounding each equinox and solstice. In TCM, it corresponds with the Earth element.
The Earth element governs the organs of the spleen, pancreas and stomach. When these organs are healthy we have a sense of harmony and balance. We are nurturing to ourselves and others. We are strong, practical and hard working.
To attune ourselves to this season, eat foods that are harmonizing or represent the center. Foods that are mildly sweet, yellow or golden in color and round in shape are very helpful. Incorporate organic corn (most conventionally grown corn comes from genetically modified seeds and therefore not recommended), carrots, cabbage, garbanzo beans, squash, potatoes, string beans, yams, organic soy (no GMO’s), sweet potatoes, rice, millet, amaranth, peas, chestnuts, filberts, apricots, and cantaloupe. It is no coincidence that these are the foods that are currently in season. When preparing foods, use minimal seasoning, and avoid too many ingredients.

But what if your spleen, pancreas , and stomach are out of balance? Symptoms of an imbalance in this system include general fatigue and weakness, loose stools or diarrhea, food sensitivities, nervous indigestion, trouble losing or gaining weight, ulcers, anemia, and organ prolapses. Emotionally, you may get overwhelmed easily. You worry excessively, or you may feel like you are “stuck” in your life. If you have any of the above conditions, avoid foods that are cold in temperature or cooling in nature. In addition to the foods mentioned above, pungent vegetables and warming spices such as onions, leeks, black pepper, ginger, cinnamon, fennel, garlic and nutmeg are very healing. Many contain anti- inflammatory properties.
Lastly, when you eat, sit at the table free from distractions. Do not read or watch television. Chew your food thoroughly. Smaller and more frequent meals may be helpful. Remember food should be no cooler than room temperature. Foods should be at least moderately well cooked.
Following these steps along with gentle exercises such as qi gong and tai chi, will do wonders in helping you achieve balance and harmony. Be well.
