While experts may disagree on the finer points of “good nutrition,” what they all agree on is that superfoods are a notch above other foods in their concentration of essential vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients. If these foods can pack an extra ‘punch’ of nutrition, then why not incorporate them in your daily diet?
To help you incorporate superfoods into your diet, here are three amazing superfoods that are easy to find at most stores and, best of all, are absolutely delicious!
Goji Berries are a legendary Himalayan fruit that in some cultures believe is the secret to eternal youth and beauty. While we aren’t quite sure about that particular claim, we do know that these little orange-red berries are loaded with antioxidants and a good source of protein, fiber, vitamin A and C.
Chia seeds are tiny black seeds from the desert plant Salvia hispanica grown natively in South America. The word “chia” is the ancient Mayan word for strength. This superfood contains plenty of antioxidant properties and are rich in omega-3 fatty acids, protein, fiber and calcium.
Coconut oil’s unique combination of fatty acids have several positive effects on our overall health including better brain function, increased energy, and weight loss. Coconut oil is great for cooking, and is a healthy alternative to margarine, butter, or vegetable oil.
By incorporating these recommended superfoods into your diet along with regular chiropractic care, you will be making a worthy investment in your overall health and wellness. Contact Scorca Chiropractic Center today to schedule your consultation.
Chiropractic care represents a viable drug-free pain management and overall wellness solution for patients at all stages of their lifespan, including pregnancy. Chiropractic treatments have been shown to improve pain and discomfort experienced during pregnancy. Chiropractic treatments have not been shown to disrupt the natural pregnancy process, much the contrary, actually.
Chiropractic treatments will help your mind/body balance during pregnancy and help you better manage the labor and delivery process, times of which for experiencing both have even been shown to reduce in patients who have undergone chiropractic treatment prior.
Your body changes during pregnancy, which can lead to poor posture, joint pain, neck pain, and more. Chiropractic care has been shown to minimize or eliminate pain associated with the wear and tear that pregnancy puts you through.

Did you know that stress has adverse effects on the body? Stress can lead to things like headaches, muscle changes, fatigue, and even a loss of sex drive. The world doesn't seem to be getting any less stressful. There are more drivers on the busy roads every day. Some of us spend 2 hours in traffic before and after work. Some of us work less than fulfilling jobs. Others have stress at work or home to deal with.
It's time to start dealing with your stress and time to start developing coping mechanisms to help you manage your stress. Below are a few ways you can reduce your stress every day.
Exercising to exertion is one of the best ways to deal with stress. We are genetically wired from our hunting and gathering ancestors who used to get in upwards of 15,000 steps in per day. Getting somewhere in the range of 10,000 steps today is acceptable. Go for a run, go for a hike, or take that martial arts class. You'll begin to notice your stress decrease.
Knowing the patterns of your mind is important, and meditation is a great way to settle the mind and help you identify thought patterns. Meditation and practicing mindfulness exercises will help build your inner calm.
Some of us are wired for stress and a cup of coffee can take us over the edge. Limit your intake to no more than 50 grams of caffeine per day. Have a cup or two in the morning, but do not have caffeine past 4 pm if you want a restful night of sleep.
Chiropractic care is also a great way to reduce stress. Chiropractic adjustments have been shown to reduce pain, reduce anxiety, and even help with insomnia. Contact Scorca Chiropractic Center today to schedule your consultation.
Many of us make New Year's resolutions that have long run dry by now, but for those of us who are still on track to achieve our wellness goals for 2019, the May-to-June transition presents a perfect opportunity to assess where you're at and determine what you need to do in order to achieve your health and wellness goals.
Below Scorca Chiropractic Center goes over a few questions you can ask yourself to make sure you're still on track.
Pay attention to your body. If you're eating right, exercising, and engaging in active recovery, then your body should be feeling great, not to mention your state of mind. If you're not feeling good or better than you were before you started paying attention to your wellness routine, then maybe it's time to make some considerable adjustments.
If you're being active chances are your body will experience pain and discomfort. Chiropractic adjustments have been shown to reduce overall joint, neck, and back pain the drug-free, all-natural way!
If you're slacking at cardio, yoga, or keeping your appointments with your chiropractor, now is the time to up your game in those realms. Your body will thank you for it.
