JOY OF LIFE CHIROPRACTIC - Dr. Laura LaJoieLifelong health can sprout from just a few healthy choices—and those seeds can be planted today, according to Dr. Laura LaJoie of Joy of Life Chiropractic.

She says too many people think attaining a healthy lifestyle means abrupt changes and a radical makeover. In reality, small, incremental steps are the keys to optimum health. Daily health care “maintenance” is more effective (and easier) than planning a massive switch.

Dr. LaJoie recommends starting simple: Drink more water, add a few veggies to your diet and increase your activity with a daily walk or light exercise.

Most importantly, make sure to take stock of your nervous system. If you’re suffering from continual or habitual pain that other doctors may describe as “normal,” you need to schedule an adjustment at Joy of Life Chiropractic. Headaches, back pain and the like are all common—but they are NOT normal!

“The biggest problem facing our health care system today is that the system is designed to treat problems that already exist versus obtaining and maintaining optimum health,” Dr. LaJoie explains.

Be healthy by choice, not by chance. Dr. LaJoie can help you achieve optimum health, regardless of age or stage. Call to GET CHECKED TODAY and plant more seeds for your healthy life! Call (503) 682-9596 for more info.

WILSONVILLE VETERINARY CLINIC - Dr. Kristen HardingeGiving your pet the food off your plate may seem harmless, but there are several foods that we enjoy that can be dangerous for our pets.

1. Chocolate/Coffee contain a substance that can cause heart problems or seizures at higher doses. Dark chocolates are the most dangerous.

2. Grapes/raisins can cause kidney failure.

3. Xylitol, a common sweetener in gum, food, and toothpaste, can cause dangerously low blood sugar and even liver failure in pets.

4. Onions/Garlic can cause red blood cell damage, particularly in cats.

5. Bones might seem like a special treat for your furry friend, but they often splinter and may puncture the intestinal tract or become lodged, requiring surgery.

6. Well-meaning, loving owners like to give their pet a taste of the holiday ham or a bit of bacon grease on their food, but Fatty Foods can result in pancreatitis which causes severe vomiting and diarrhea that requires aggressive treatment.

7. Alcohol/Marijuana can likewise be harmful to your pet. It is important to consult with your veterinarian if you suspect that your pet may have consumed either of these substances.

This is by no means an all-inclusive list. If you suspect that your pet may have consumed any of these items, or if you’re not sure if something may be poisonous, please consult your veterinarian, veterinary emergency clinic, or animal poison control. Prompt action and treatment is more effective than waiting until your pet is showing symptoms.

THE HASSON COMPANY REALTORS - Lisa WillettToday, more than ever before, Americans are renting instead of owning a home. As of the 2nd quarter of 2016, the U.S. Census Bureau reports that only 62.9% of all U.S. households are owner-occupied homes, the lowest national homeownership rate since at least 1965, when the census bureau began tracking homeownership.

Remarkably, Zillow reports that nearly 14% of renters in the 35 largest housing markets can afford a median-priced home in their market. 14%! So what’s keeping renters from becoming homeowners? In a word: Uncertainty.

Purchasing a home is a big investment, probably the biggest investment you will make in your life, and many renters simply aren’t ready to go through the process of finding homes they like and making that decision. If you’re at all hesitant about purchasing a home, it’s best to wait. But if you’re looking to build equity and wealth, save money on fast-rising rental rates, and you’re ready for the added responsibility, you should absolutely become a homeowner.

Finding your perfect home doesn’t have to be a process riddled with uncertainty. Realtors like me have extensive networks to help you narrow down your home choices, and my understanding of the current housing market and experience negotiating will ensure you don’t pay more for a home than you have to.

If you’re leaning towards homeownership, contact me today to get your search started!

JOY OF LIFE CHIROPRACTIC - Dr. Laura LaJoieBack in October of 2014, then-Governor John Kitzhaber made October Oregon Chiropractic Health and Wellness Month, citing figures from a seven year study that showed that patients who received chiropractic treatment had an 85 percent reduction in drug costs, among other advantages.

October is also National Chiropractic Health Month, and as part of its 2016 public awareness campaign, the American Chiropractic Association (ACA) has announced that October will mark the beginning of their #Chiropractic1st hashtag, which advocates for a conservative approach to pain management where chiropractic services are the first line of defense.

According to the Foundation for Chiropractic Progress (F4CP), more than 259 million opioid painkiller prescriptions were written in 2012. Perhaps most shocking of all, overdose deaths related to opioid abuse have risen in every county of every state since 1999.

Opioid misuse and abuse is a widespread problem, and even the Center for Disease Control has taken notice: conservative care options like chiropractic are now preferred over opioids for treating things like chronic pain. Chiropractic-care is time-tested (it recently celebrated its 121st birthday on Sunday, September 18th) and can effectively treat acute and chronic musculoskeletal injuries through techniques such as safe and gentle joint manipulation and mobilization.

If you suffer from chronic pain, choose #Chiropractic1st this October. Joy of Life is your best choice, so call (503)-682-9596 today to schedule your consultation, and be healthy by choice, not by chance.
