Our Blueprint For Solving These Problems:

  1. Get a chiropractic evaluation after every accident (new or old)
  2. Get expert advice that can prevent future problems
  3. Never assume the accident was “too tiny” to cause problems
  4. Never assume children are fine after ANY car accident

ADVICE: Find a trusted Doctor of Chiropractic who can properly assess for ANY DAMAGE that may have happened (even the small one, even if they happened long ago). They can help you more than you know.

REMEMBER: Small problems now always lead to bigger problems later. (think cavities versus root canals)

LASTLY: If you have never been properly evaluated, call us today. AND, if you know someone that this information might apply to, please help them find their way to our office, or an office just like ours – before it’s too late!


 

Why Do Kids Need A Vitamin D Supplement?

What Every Parent Ought To Know About Vitamin-D For Kids…

Secrets Of The Super Healthy Revealed!


Parents, Do You Know…

  • How important Vitamin-D is for your child?
  • Who to trust for specific and accurate advice?
  • Exactly what to buy – and, what not to buy?

There is a vast body of science showing the many health benefits of vitamin D. You may be surprised to learn the important role that vitamin D plays in your child’s health. 

  • Acne
  • ADD/ADHD
  • Asthma
  • Allergies
  • Bone health
  • Cold/flu
  • Depression
  • Diabetes
  • Dental cavities
  • Gluten intolerance
  • Infections, bacterial/viral
  • Obesity

Vitamin D Helps Regulate Your Child’s Immune System?

Vitamin D3 is a potent immune system modulator. There is plenty of scientific evidence that vitamin D has several different effects on immune system function that may enhance your child’s immunity and inhibit the development of autoimmune disorders.

Good Question: Could vitamin D help my child’s allergies, asthma, eczema, food hypersensitivity issues, propensity for colds and infections? 

Vitamin D Helps Regulate Your Child’s Blood Sugar?

The active form of vitamin D plays a role in insulin secretion under conditions of increased insulin demand. There is reason to suggest that insufficient vitamin D levels may have an adverse effect on insulin secretion and glucose tolerance in type 2 diabetes.

Good Question: Could vitamin D3 help regulate my child’s blood sugar and help ward off the development of diabetes?

Vitamin D Enhances Your Child’s Brain Function?

Vitamin D isn’t just good for boosting hormone levels and promoting bone health. There are actually receptors for Vitamin D in the central nervous system and in the hippocampus (memory and spatial recognition) region of the brain – and in these areas, Vitamin D not only protects neurons, but also regulates enzymes in the brain and cerebrospinal fluid that are involved in neurotransmitter synthesis and nerve growth.

One recent study investigating Vitamin D and cognitive function found that the lower the Vitamin D levels, the more negative the performance is on mental tests. Another study found that people with lower vitamin D levels have slower ability to process information.

Good Question: Could increasing vitamin D enhance my child’s brain chemistry and overall mental abilities?

The Right Kind, The Right Dose!

Here are a few links to what we take and recommend to parents. We prefer LifeSource, a Christian based company that offers high quality products at very affordable prices.

Liquid Option – our favorite

Capsule Option #1 – 5,000i/u

Capsule Option #2 – 1,000i/u 

Chewable Gummy Option

Vitamin D Specifications For Kids

Type: Vitamin D3 is the only option. This is the natural form of vitamin D. Typically prescription vitamin D is in the form of vitamin D2, the synthetic version (not good). We prefer liquid vitamin D3. It is far easier to consume than pill version, especially when you need to adjust dosage for child versus adult or for maintenance versus recovery.

Dosage: The are 4 modes of thinking here (child, adult, maintenance, recovery). Maintenance versus recovery refers to maintaining optimal immune system function (not sick) versus improving a weakened or challenged immune system (being sick).

  • Child (maintenance) = 2,000 i/u per day
  • Child (recovery/sick) = 4,000 i/u per day
  • Adult (maintenance) = 5,000 i/u per day
  • Adult (recovery/sick) = 10,000 i/u per day

NOTE: There is more inaccurate and outdated information about vitamin-D on the internet today than there is good information. The guidelines above come from a large volume of personal research cross referenced with the most credible sources we know of. You can, and perhaps should, get your vitamin D levels checked. We never have. We just follow the guidelines listed above!


 

BREAKING NEWS

Massive Scientific Error Reported Regarding Daily Dosage 

A recent investigation that went viral was Researchers at UC San Diego and Creighton University have challenged the intake of vitamin D recommended by the National Academy of Sciences (NAS) Institute of Medicine (IOM), stating that their Recommended Dietary Allowance (RDA) for vitamin D underestimates the need by a factor of ten.

In a letter published in the journal Nutrients the scientists confirmed a calculation error noted by other investigators, by using a data set from a different population. Dr. Cedric F. Garland, Dr.P.H., adjunct professor at UC San Diego’s Department of Family Medicine and Public Health said his group was able to confirm findings published by Dr. Paul Veugelers from the University of Alberta School of Public Health that were reported last October in the same journal.

“Both these studies suggest that the IOM underestimated the requirement substantially,” said Garland. “The error has broad implications for public health regarding disease prevention and achieving the stated goal of ensuring that the whole population has enough vitamin D to maintain bone health.”

The recommended intake of vitamin D specified by the IOM is 600 IU/day through age 70 years, and 800 IU/day for older ages. “Calculations by us and other researchers have shown that these doses are only about one-tenth those needed to cut incidence of diseases related to vitamin D deficiency,” Garland explained.

Robert Heaney, M.D., of Creighton University wrote: “We call for the NAS-IOM and all public health authorities concerned with transmitting accurate nutritional information to the public to designate, as the RDA, a value of approximately 7,000 IU/day from all sources.”

Omega-3 For Kids? What Every Parent Ought To Know

Why Do Kids Need An Omega 3 Supplement?

What Every Parent Ought To Know About Omega 3 For Kids…

Secrets Of The Super Healthy Revealed!

Parents, Do You Know…

  • How important omega 3 is to growth and development?
  • Who to trust for specific and accurate advice?
  • Exactly what to buy – and, what not to buy?

Omega 3 And Intellectual Potential

If you want your child to reach his or her maximum intellectual potential, the research is clear that plentiful intake of the omega 3 fat DHA (docosahexaenoic acid) is essential.

In the US, most kids get hardly any of this healthful fat, found primarily in seafood, in their diets, are most likely missing out on this simple opportunity to boost brain performance.

Most recently, two new studies have confirmed that boosting your child’s intake of DHA as an infant and into the school-age years may be a simple way to generate measurable improvements in their brain function.

Omega 3 Benefits For Kids:

  • Supports healthy brain development
  • Cognitive skills / function
  • Concentration function
  • Supports a healthy nervous system
  • Supports healthy eye function
  • Supports retinal growth and function
  • Supports visual function

In Sweden a study was conducted of 15 year old school children and found that those who consumed fish high in omega 3’s more than once per week had 15% higher grades than those who consumed fish less than once a week. Not only that, another study showed cumulative benefits from prolonged ingestion of DHA may eventually over time have positive effects on school performance. 

Nearly 100% of the time I do a supplement label analysis in the clinic, I notice the parent is buying the wrong omega 3 supplement… either the wrong type, the wrong ratio, or the wrong dose. It is imperative to get this right. I hope this article helps you do just that. Please share this info with others! -Dr. Burns

Omega 3 Specifications For Kids

Type: The 2 key players are DHA and EPA (docosahexaenoic acid and eicosapentaenoic acid). Other forms include omega-6 and omega-9 (not worth discussing or buying). The plant form of omega-3 is ALA (conversion of ALA to EPA and DHA is not promising – so, stick to DHA and EPA based supplements). 

Ratio: DHA is the ‘builder’, while EPA is the ‘maintainer’. Therefore, children require more DHA while adults require more EPA. The ideal ratio of DHA to EPA should be 2:1 or greater. Conversely, the ratio for adults should be EPA to DHA of 2:1.

Dosage: There is much confusion about dosage. Most sources are incorrect and far too low. The ideal dose for children is 1,000-1,500mg/day. The ideal dose for adults is 3,000mg.

NOTE: It’s hard to find a high quality product that meets these specifications. Below are a few recommendations from LifeSource, a Christian based supplement company that we trust and recommend.

  • NO Wheat
  • NO Gluten
  • NO Milk or Eggs
  • NO Peanuts, Tree Nuts or Crustacean Shellfish
  • Molecularly distilled and tested for PCB’s, dioxins and heavy metals in each batch, Guaranteed!

What About Cod Liver Oil and Krill Oil?

Neither of these options will meet the ideal specifications listed above (the ratio and dosage of DHA and EPA is suboptimal). Don’t fall prey to good advertising. Stay focused on the details and recommendations listed above!

Source: Wheat Belly, William Davis, MD – 2014
“Fish oil is the only reliable and sufficiently potent source of EPA and DHA. Krill oil, while interesting for its astaxanthin content (a carotenoid similar to betacarotene), provides only a trivial amount of EPA and DHA. Krill is often marketed as having a more highly absorbed phospholipid from of omega-3s, which is true, but it contains so little that you’d have to consume an entire bottle every day to yield sufficient quantity of EPA and DHA. I advocate an intake or 3,000 to 3,600 mg per day (the dose of combined omega-3 fatty acids. EPA and DHA, not fish oil).” “This quantity yields a level of omega-3 fatty acid in the bloodstream of 10% or more, meaning that 10% of all fatty acids in red blood cells are compromised of EPA and DHA, the level that provides maximal protection from cardiovascular disease and a variety of anti-inflammatory benefits.”

How Many Nerve Branches Exit Your Spine?

Do You Know How Many Nerve Branches You Have, And Why It’s Important…

The More Your Know, The Better!

Please SHARE this with family and friends!

We aren’t taught this, but the more a person knows about how their spine interfaces with their nervous system the better off they will be. Keeping the nerve channels open and flowing freely is critical to health and healing!

Our Blueprint For A Healthy Spine:

  1. Proper alignment
  2. Full and symmetrical movement
  3. Routine chiropractic checkups, and tune-ups as needed

NOTE: We need to stop thinking of chiropractic as “back cracking” for back pain. Our spine is literally the pipeline for the brain/body communication system. Chiropractic can be seen as a method for optimizing that system, and should be used accordingly from the beginning to the end of our life.

ADVICE: Find a wellness-based Doctor of Chiropractic for you and your family.

REMEMBER: Our body can heal and self-regulate, given the right conditions. A healthy, well cared for spine is one of those conditions!

Want To Know A Few “Insider Secrets” To Predicting And Controlling How Your Body Will Age?

Things You Never Learn From The Average Doctor Down The Street…

Lesson #5: How To Influence Aging & Longevity With Certainty

Being healthy for 100+ years is possible, IF you know what you are doing!

Please HELP US spread the word by SHARING this page!


The Cliff Notes…

  • Most people are frustrated, confused, and quite frankly scared, when it comes to talking about aging
  • Know this… aging may be inevitable, but aging poorly is preventable
  • Aging poorly has become the common trend these days
  • Aging well is not difficult IF/WHEN you know what you are doing
  • Look at aging like a game… you simply need to play by the rules and have a winning strategy
  • Rules of the game (the biological laws mentioned in the video) include Wolff’s Law, Davis’s Law, LaPlace’s Law
  • These rules are either working for us, or working against us 24/7
  • When we break the rules we always pay a price
  • Abnormal health and aging is not a mystery or a matter of luck, genetics, etc.
  • How we age is a product of our choices
  • Choose to learn and play by the rules
  • Choose to have a winning strategy for aging
  • Choose to live well, and be a good example to others
  • Think better, live better!

The fact that my body will age may be inevitable, but I refuse to age poorly. Instead, I choose to educate myself and do what it takes to age properly. In doing so, I can inspire and empower others to do the same. -Dr. Burns

Action Steps…

  • Use the list below to measure or assess how your lifestyle is affecting your health.
  • Improve your lifestyle as quickly as possible, and be consistent with those improvements.
  • Continue to upgrade and refine your list indefinitely.

checklist.001

This checklist is a more valuable tool than you may realize. It can tell you why you are not feeling well, functioning well or aging well. It can tell you where to work more diligently on your lifestyle. It can improve your quality of life!

Honestly, how would you score yourself in each category? Would you give yourself an A+, B, or C-? Are you dabbling by doing well some days, but poorly on other days? Is there room for improvement?

MORE DETAILS FOR MORE SUCCESS

Spine and Posture

The research on neurophysiology tells us that the spine massively influences the nervous system that runs through it, as well as brain function itself. A healthy spine will not interfere with nervous system function, while an unhealthy spine can. This is what chiropractors have been saying since 1895. It is no longer a matter of opinion. It is a fact. How healthy is your spine? Do you know where your problems or weaknesses are? How often do you do something to take care of your spine… everyday, or just when it hurts?

Adequate Hydration

The nervous system is a conductive system coordinating electrical signals throughout the body at alarming speeds with amazing precision. A dehydrated body is not an ideal conductive environment. Are you okay with signals flowing at slower than ideal speed to your heart, muscles, organs, etc? Does that sound like a reasonable or healthy way to live?

Nutrient Rich Diet & Effective Supplementation

Nutrients are the building blocks by which the body repairs itself daily. Most people do not have a well balanced, nutrient rich diet. When you become nutrient deficient, you force your nervous system to work harder to compensate for deficiency. Do you think it’s wise to ask the most important system in your body to work overtime decade after decade?

Additionally, the nervous system has to repair itself like any other tissue, organ or gland. A poorly constructed diet, which most people unknowingly do have, will interfere with this process. Do you think this might explain the rise in neurodegenerative disorders?

Biochemistry

Yes, diet and supplementation have an effect on biochemistry. But, there are other areas that we can focus on as well: pH levels (acidity), sugar intake, effects of medication, unhealthy chemicals in food and cleaning products, etc. Maybe you have some of the basics covered, but there is always room for more improvement, right? After all, we are talking about the health and integrity of our nervous system… the operating system or power plant of the human body!

Movement

Scientists have proven… The nervous system is fed via movement. Said another way, lack of movement literally starves your brain and nervous system of what it needs daily. This is a neurological fact of life. And there is more, abnormal movement is analogous to eating processed food. Again, this is where chiropractic comes in by helping people move better. In essence, we help people ‘better feed their brain and nervous system’ by improving how they move! How cool is that?

Attitude

Science has proven time and again that mood affects neurology, which in turn effects health. Science is also showing us that physiology drives psychology. One of the best ways to improve your mood is to improve the items listed above. In addition, feeding your mind via positive influences daily is no different than feeding your body good food.

THE CHIROPRACTIC LIFESTYLE

What has just been described is called the Chiropractic Lifestyle. It centers every action around improving nervous system function, which in turn improves health from head to toe.

Do you know of any other profession that has a more logical, comprehensive approach to health?

Get yourself, and your family, under the care of a wellness based Chiropractor. They can do more for you than you can possibly imagine!

What separates the healthy from the unhealthy should not be considered a matter of luck, mystery, or genetics. It is merely a matter of lifestyle choices and nervous system function. Get this, and all else will follow.

The Cliff Notes…

  • We cannot measure health by how we feel because we can have disease and feel no symptoms (heart disease and cancer for example)
  • The quantity and quality of our health is proportional to how well our body is functioning, not how it is feeling
  • The nervous system is responsible for regulating bodily function from head to toe
  • To improve and maintain health we must focus our attention on nervous system function
  • There are many ways to improve or increase nervous system function
  • There are many things that inhibit or decrease nervous system function
  • The quality of our lifestyle massively influences nervous system function
  • We can measure health by measuring the quality of our lifestyle, and its impact on nervous system function
  • This is the key to being proactive about health, rather than reactive to illness and disease
  • Think better, get better, live better!

We are slowly waking up to the fact that the nervous system is the gateway to human performance, health and disease prevention. Understanding how to optimize our body and lifestyle to enhance nervous system function is likely the biggest breakthrough to date in human development.
