While nutritional food choices are first and foremost to our approach to a healthy lifestyle at the Chiropractic Family Center of Brick, we know from education and from our personal experiences there are conditions where a supplement can boost the response our patients want. We offer a variety of supplements for sale in the office, but many of our patients and family members use our recommended suppliers to advance their understanding of nutritional supplements.  We can also set you up with a Patient Direct account which allows you to independently order and monitor your personal use of supplements.

We recommend Science-Based Products from Metagenics because they

…meet the highest standards for research and quality manufacturing to help make natural approaches safer and more effective. Here you’ll find a wide range of products to meet your specific needs to help you reach your best health possible.

We also recommend and sell products from Anabolic Laboratories which cites:

Overwhelming research has shown that many of the health conditions prevalent in today’s population are caused (at least in part) by poor diet and a lack of adequate exercise. Nutritional supplements can greatly assist you in obtaining the nutrients you need in order to defend yourself from poor health.

Standard Process has introduced a simpler way to order supplements with a new Patient Direct feature. They believe

At Standard Process, providing high-quality herbal and dietary supplements to support the health of your patients is essential to our mission. Making our supplements easily accessible while preserving the health care professional-patient relationship is at the core of this mission. That’s why we’re launching Patient Direct by Standard Process, a refreshed online patient ordering platform that offers an upgraded, more simplified experience for both you and your patients. Its main objective is convenience, which ultimately improves patient compliance.

Please check out these suppliers and their products, then we can discuss them with you at your next visit.

…and remember, nutrition begins with the food choices you make and the movement you choose for your body!

Decompression Breathing

Decompression breathing is an exercise found in the foundation training protocol.  According to Dr. Eric Goodman in his book True to Form, a body compressed and grown rigid under gravity’s excessive pressure is a body in which proper respiration has been stunted, effectively reining in every move the body makes and every stand it takes.  It is one of the first exercises one should learn how to do effectively before going on to the other poses.  One of our chiropractors, Dr. Christopher Yanchus, is certified in teaching this great exercise protocol.  The minimum for doing the decompression breath is three repetitions.  Do the exercises whenever you can, but you should especially do it three times or more in the morning on awakening, three or more times in the afternoon, three times or more before bed, and during every Foundation Training exercise.   Check out the video below to learn more about how to do this exercise correctly.
