Hope your Thanksgiving was wonderful! I ate way too much, but it is always great seeing my family this time of year.
As we approach Christmas and the New Year, it is important to take a moment to slow down and reflect on the important things in our lives. Family and friends are right up there, but what gets neglected the most this time of year is our health. Don't get so caught up worrying about others that you forget about yourself.

15 Reasons to Visit a Chiropractor this Holiday Season!
Dr. Brenda Trudell
Tis the season for the holidays, food, family and cheer!
And also for stress, weight gain, and more that we fear.
For giving, for laughing, for spending time with friends.
For cooking, for cleaning, and wondering if it will ever end.
The Holidays, for many, can be a blessing in disguise.
With stress, illness and injuries always on the rise.
Make this year different, and don’t fall into the trap.
Take care of yourself with chiropractic and maybe a nice long nap!
The holiday season can be a very stressful time for many. While there is so much to be grateful for, it is also easy to get wrapped up in everything and forget to take care of your own health. Putting others first on occasion can be beneficial, but when it is constant, the toll on your body can be huge. There are some easy ways to stay healthy during the holiday season. This article discusses 15 reasons why it is good to visit your chiropractor during the holiday season.
1. Stress. Everyone knows the holidays can be stressful. Dealing with family members you disagree with or mediating family fights. Finding money to pay for expensive gifts, holiday meals or travel expenses. Traveling and being stuck in airports or driving in bad weather. Or being alone if you have lost loved ones or live far away from friends and family. Everybody has a different reason but the end result is the same. Your body deals with stress by tensing up, headaches, neck pain, low back pain, jaw pain, stomach aches, etc. Many people “throw their back out” every year around the holidays because they get stressed out and don’t do anything about taking care of their own body. You need to put yourself first once in a while, fix the cause of the problem, and get adjusted to treat and prevent injuries from happening repeatedly. Chiropractic is powerful and is great to deal with the negative effects of stress on the body. Trust me, I have a psychology degree, and it sure comes in handy this time of year.

Essential Oils of the Month: Citrus Oils
Citrus oils like Tangerine, Grapefruit, Lemon and Orange are wonderful this time of year. They give us a boost of antioxidants, taste great in drinks and recipes, smell great being diffused in the home, and are powerful non-toxic disinfectants that can be used to clean the house and kill germs. One of my favorite combinations to diffuse during the holidays is Tangerine and Frankincense essential oils. They are also great for the skin and can be added to oils, lotions and witch hazel to make your own non-toxic skincare products. Stock up on the delicious citrus oils to have on hand this holiday season. For more ways to use tangerine, grapefruit, lemon, lime and orange oils, click here.

Looking to Save Money?
Now is the perfect time to use up your remaining insurance and flex plan benefits for 2012!

We would be happy to call your insurance company and check your benefits for you. Stress, weather changes, raking, shoveling, shopping, and being sick can all make us sore and miserable. Let us help you, and save yourself some money at the same time! You have already paid for these benefits, so don't let them go to waste.
