.There's been several studies that suggest vitamin C can help prevent stroke.  An interesting recent study looked at vitamin C levels in patients that were healthy (no stroke) and patients that has a stroke.  The results were telling:  vitamin C levels in patients who hadn't had a stroke were normal, while the participants with depleted vitamin C levels were the patients who'd suffered a stroke.

According to the Journal of Occupational and Environmental Medicine, Chiropractic patients were less prone to recurring low back disability compared to patients who received care by a  physician or physical therapist.   16.9% of physical therapy patients had recurring disability. 12.5% of physician patients (traditionally treated with medicine) saw ongoing flair-ups, but just 6.2%- less than HALF of the other 2 groups- of chiropractic patients had ongoing issues.

Indeed, as chiropractors have said for years, it appears that chiropractic care and adjustments gets down to the root of the problem versus just responding to symptoms.

 “Every day in the United States, 105 people die as a result of drug overdose, and another 6,748 are treated in emergency departments (ED) for the misuse or abuse of drugs,” according to the CDC.  Here's the kicker- most of that number is painkillers.

Of further note, a recent CNN article tossed this tidbit out: “A recent Johns Hopkins study showed that between 2000-2010, opioid prescriptions given after pain-related doctor visits nearly doubled - from 11% to 20% - while identification and treatment of pain stayed the same.”


Chiropractic is SAFE, EFFECTIVE, and NATURAL.  Tell your friends and family that there is no "magic pill" that takes care of musculoskeletal pain.  Rather, it's important to treat the cause through chiropractic so the body can heal itself...thus alleviating the need for painkillers.
