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.

Massage with Becky

If You Are Thinking Of a Massage at Pace, Don’t Wait – Here’s What One Client Had to Say After a Session with Becky:

“I had a massage with Becky at Pace Family Chiropractic, and it was the best massage I have ever had – and I have had a lot of massages! Becky did exactly what I asked; focusing on my hips and legs, while giving me a good once-over too. When she had finished the right side of my body, I actually felt as if I were two different people. My hip joint and leg were so loose and relaxed on that side that I felt like I was in someone else’s body on the right. It was incredible. Luckily, she “put me back together” by moving to the left and working her magic over there too.

“After my massage, I had my adjustment. The rest of my day was fantastic. I could walk much better, and I am still feeling the results a week later!”
- A satisfied Pace client

Becky has been practicing massage for five years, and is a nationally certified New York State Licensed Massage Therapist. Prior to working at PFC, Becky taught Massage Therapy courses at Moore Career College in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. She is now offering 30 Minute Trigger Point Massage Therapy which can help you get the most out of your adjustments while reducing pain in your problem areas all at an affordable rate.

Nutrametrix Daily Essential Kit

Opt for Optimum Health with nutraMetrix Daily Essentials

One of the things that we offer at Pace Family Chiropractic is an awesome line of “nutraceuticals” by nutraMetrix. One of the best deals available is the nutraMetrix Isotonix Daily Essentials Kit, which includes the essential vitamins, minerals and nutrients your body needs in four essential supplements. The cost of the kit is $139.95, which is almost 30% less – a $56 savings- than buying these products individually, so I highly recommend it.

When you purchase the the Daily Essentials you get:

• nutraMetrix Isotonix OPC-3, a powerful antioxidant that helps maintain healthy cholesterol levels, joint flexibility, cardiovascular health and circulation, and combats free radicals throughout your body.

• nutraMetrix Isotonix Multivitamin, which contains 100 percent or more of the recommended daily value of essential vitamins and minerals to complement your diet.

• nutraMetrixIsotonix Activated B-Complex, which delivers metabolically active forms of several vitamins and minerals. Activated forms are important because traditional forms of vitamins B6, B12 and folic acid found in most other B-complex products must undergo chemical changes in order to be utilized by the body.

• nutraMetrix Isotonix Calcium Plus, which delivers calcium and complementary nutrients to keep your bones strong. The unique Isotonix delivery system and the inclusion of beneficial vitamins and minerals – including vitamin D – make nutraMetrix Isotonix Calcium Plus more readily available and easily absorbed by the body.

The kit is available at the office. Ask at the front desk, and don’t wait. Now is the time to optimize your health with regular adjustments and premium supplements.

Until next time,

Dr. Sarah

Here’s another interesting story from a patient I thought I would share with you, and FYI, this is not the only person I have helped with this problem:

“I had a huge lump on my collar bone. My doctor told me it was a calcium deposit resulting from a fall. I couldn’t wear a necklace anymore because it didn’t hang right, and that was pretty disappointing. When Dr. Sarah saw it, she said, ‘that isn’t a calcium deposit, you must have injured your clavicle awhile back and your shoulder needs adjusting!’

“I could not believe it. I had been walking around with this giant lump that my doctor just poo-poo’ed, when there was something simple that could fix it! I was mad….and thrilled at the same time. After a series of adjustments, my collar bone is basically back to normal, and I can wear my jewelry again. Thank you Dr. Sarah!

“A word to the wise: always check with Dr. Sarah if your primary care doctor says there is nothing he or she can do for you.”
