Daysha has been part of our clinic community for years. She shares about how adjustments have impacted her health and lifestyle, including currently, while she is pregnant with twins! She explains how adjustments helped alleviate pains and nausea usually associated with pregnancy, as well as helping reposition one twin which was breached, by helping realign her hips.
Please give a congrats to Daysha and her growing family!

In recent weeks, a lot of office workers in the Denver Metro area have moved to work from home with the Colorado Stay at Home orders in response to COVID-19.

When was the last time you had an Epsom Salt Bath?
The National Academy of Sciences states that American’s are extremely magnesium deficient. This contributes to America’s high rates of heart disease, stroke, osteoporosis, arthritis, digestive maladies, chronic fatigue and many other chronic diseases.
Our magnesium levels have dropped by half in the last century due to changes in agriculture and our diet. In fact, the modern American diet of fat, sugar, salt and protein actually works to speed up the depletion of magnesium from our bodies.
Magnesium is poorly absorbed through the stomach and studies have shown that magnesium is better absorbed through the skin as from soaking in a bath.
The benefits of soaking in an Epsom salt
• Improved heart and
circulatory health, reducing irregular heartbeats, preventing hardening of the arteries,
reducing blood clots and lowering blood pressure.
• Improved ability for the
body to use insulin, reducing the incidence or
severity of diabetes.
toxins and heavy metals
• Stress relief. Excess adrenaline and stress are believed to
drain magnesium, a natural stress reliever, from the body. Magnesium is necessary for the body to bind
adequate amounts of serotonin, a mood-elevating chemical within the brain that
creates a feeling of well being and relaxation.
• Reduces inflammation to
relieve pain and muscle cramps.
Improved absorption of nutrients.
Recommendation: Add two cups of Epsom salt to a warm bath and
soak for at least 12 minutes up to three times per week.
