Dr. Ellie’s Health Tips:

Health Tip of the Month: Are you a gum chewer? Chewing gum ingredients, many of which are potentially dangerous, enter your body directly through the walls of your mouth, bypassing your digestive system, which would ordinarily help to filter some of the toxins. Common ingredients in chewing gum linked to cancer, organ toxicity, weight gain and more include aspartame, BHT, calcium casein peptone, gum base and titanium dioxide. Chewing gum has also been linked to disruptions to digestion and dental erosion, while doing nothing to curb appetite or weight gain. Yikes!

Thought for the Month: This will never be a civilized country until we expend more money for books than we do for chewing gum. ~Elbert Hubbard

Chiropractic Thought for the Month: Chiropractic, safe and effective health care for well over 113 years! Chiropractic was discovered in the United States in 1895, but history documents ancient civilizations using spinal adjustments as a primary health care method. The Greek philosopher, Hippocrates even said, “look well to the spine for the cause of disease.” Our own Thomas Edison once said, “The doctor of the future will use no medication, but will interest his patients in the care of the human frame, diet, exercise and the cause and prevention of disease.”
