What are the alternatives to dairy? As with any diet change, my advice is always to take it slowly. Never try to eliminate every dairy product from your life all at once. And always attempt to replace rather than totally eliminate.
During the cervical traction the weight of the head is gently lifted off the neck anatomy and may temporarily decompress pinched nerve roots and result in reduction of herniated inter vertebral disk. Visiting a chiropractor near me is the best way to get useful “adjustments” to the spine.

I don’t know about you, but I need all the energy I can get for things like “thinking.” I used to be one of those stoic, work-through-the-night types who thought of himself as a “brain on a stick” – I’ll sleep when I’m dead, I figured. Today, when I look back on my old, ill-informed ways, I can’t help but wonder how much more effective – and creative, and (gosh darn it) BRILLIANT – I would’ve been if I’d done more to take care of my health. Who knew you needed energy to do your best thinking?
