Remember, it’s better to stay well than to get well!
More people today suffer from stress induced diseases than during any other time in history. The demands of daily life, combined with poor nutritional choices and sedentary lifestyles, have contributed to this. The average American’s diet consists of far too many fast foods, refined and processed foods and chemically injected meats. The body’s biochemical mechanisms have no way of properly assimilating these man-made chemicals, resulting in markedly increased rates of obesity, cancer and digestive problems. Gold Naprapathic & Wellness Center offers Naprapathy, Massage Therapy, Orthotics, Auriculotherapy (Acupuncture without needles) and Functional Diagnostic Medicine.
Stress accumulates in the body and will ultimately result in havoc wreaking illnesses and muscular imbalances. When people hold stress in their bodies, whether it is in their necks, stomachs or elsewhere, the results are the same: pain, dysfunction, and, eventually, disease. Poor posture and lack of adequate physical activity also creates muscle imbalances that can cause scar tissue to form within the muscle which, over time, will cause pain or make the individual more prone to injury.
Common conditions treated by your Naprapathic Doctor:
Naprapathy uses manual medicine, nutritional counseling and modern technology to address these conditions and symptoms. A practitioner of Naprapathy, a Naprapath, believes that the body, given the right environment, has the ability to heal itself. Naprapaths utilize their knowledge and specialized techniques to help the patient get on their road to wellness.
