January 30, 2023

Dear patient and friend,

 

In the journals I read I often come across new developments in the science of chiropractic.However, people like you never become aware of these important ideas since the media reports so little of it.

 

Therefore Iíve taken yet upon myself to keep you informed of crucial breakthroughs because I know how important they can be to you, your family and friends.As your doctor, I believe itís part of my sacred trust.So for your information and consideration, here are these unique and revolutionary developments.

 

 

 

Weatherproof Your Body This Winter

OK, it's time for a quick lesson in weatherproofing your body. Particularly when you're in the throes of winter (like now), skin health is pivotal. Here are some simple strategies to keep your skin healthy during the winter months:

        Go easy on the water: Many of us have a tendency to languish in a hot shower or bath when it's cold outside, but that's exactly the recipe for skin disaster. Why? Because, contrary to what you might think, water actually depletes the skin's natural moisturizing capabilities, particularly overly warm / hot water. As the water evaporates, it takes natural oils with it, leading to dry, flaky, unhealthy skin.

 

        Lotion is your friend: A good moisturizer is key to protecting your skin during the winter months, and even more so after contact with above-mentioned water. Choose a product that lubricates the skin, slows the rate of water evaporation, and leaves your skin with that "silky-smooth" look and feel.

        The sun is still there: Winter might bring less daylight hours and more overcast skies, but that doesn't eliminate the potential for the sun's rays to harm your skin. A good sunscreen is still essential during the winter months whenever you plan on being outdoors for more than 15-20 minutes at a time, particularly during the hours of the day when the sun's at its most intense: 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Ditch the sunscreen and you'll age your skin and increase your risk of developing skin cancer.

 

        For some people, diet goes out the window during winter. After all, why stay in shape when you're blanketed in cold-weather clothing all the time? Unfortunately, poor diet can take a toll on your skin, so make sure you eat plenty of skin-supporting foods during winter (and throughout the year). 

 

        Your skin is your body's largest organ, so take care of it this winter by incorporating the above tips intoyour daily routine. Your skin will thank you for it.

I first came to see Dr. Weber because of neck and back pain that was moderate to heavy in nature that occurred daily.I had been to a chiropractor in the past with some results. Finding the right chiropractor was extremely important to me. Dr. Weber explained what was wrong and was very thorough in his examination and report.I have had good results since seeing Dr. Weber.Other members of my family are also receiving the benefits of chiropractic care for their neck and back pain.I would recommend anyone suffering to get help and not put it off.I just love the results I have been getting chiropractic care.

I first sought chiropractic care for both neck and back problems.I had these problems for years and they were at the high end of the severity scale.It was hard to turn my neck without pain. I previously had tried Tylenol but was not getting the results I wanted. A friend recommended chiropractic care to me and I had a very good first impression of Dr. Weber and his staff. My results have been very beneficial to my overall health.
