An Apple a Day . . .

Apples

What is so good about an apple? Is it the color, ranging from ruby red to pale pink? Is it the crunch? The sweetness? Or is it, instead, a combination of all of these qualities, plus the natural goodness derived from the apple's secret ingredients — phytonutrients? If this were a multiple choice quiz, the answer would be "all of the above". Importantly, in addition to possessing numerous appealing physical qualities, apples contain an abundance of health-promoting biochemicals known as phytonutrients.1,2 These specific organic molecules are derived not only from apples but many other fresh fruits and vegetables, and help power the immune system, protect against cancer, maintain healthy eyes, and assist cells in clearing out metabolic waste products such as free radicals.

An apple may be considered one of Nature's abundant miracles, and all fruits, vegetables, and grains may be regarded in the same light. Fresh produce, including grains, are nutritious in that they provide us with vitamins, minerals, and raw materials for energy. As well, these foods help us attain and maintain optimal levels of health and well-being by furnishing us with a broad range of power-packed, almost magical chemical sequences, the phytonutrients, that assist each and every cell, tissue, organ system, and physiological structure do its job in the best way possible.3

These are some of the reasons why "an apple a day" is so important to good health. One could also add "an orange a day", "a tomato a day", "a squash a day", and "a serving of broccoli a day". Overall, a healthy lifestyle includes eating at least five servings of fresh fruits and vegetables each day. Good nutrition helps support our other healthy lifestyle choices, including doing at least 30 minutes of regular, vigorous exercise each week and obtaining sufficient restful sleep. The time and effort we spend in consistently achieving these healthy lifestyles help us reap the substantial rewards of a lifetime of good health.

As well, regular chiropractic care helps us put everything together in the arena of long-term health and well-being. By detecting and correcting spinal misalignments and areas of spinal dysfunction, regular chiropractic care helps ensure that the nerve system, the body's master system, is working at peak capacity. In this way, regular chiropractic care helps ensure that all other physiological systems, including the cardiorespiratory, gastrointestinal, and endocrine systems, are doing their jobs effectively. Regular chiropractic care helps us get the most out of our commitments to a healthy lifestyle and helps our families and ourselves achieve high levels of health and wellness.

Reviews By Our Satisfied Patients

  • "Hugs to Dr Tazzi and his entire staff. I had never been to a chiropractor and was frankly scared to death. I came in for a consult and xrays about two years ago now. I was bent over and couldn't stand straight up at times. My right leg would drag and my hip was so painful. Since that time I have had a AMAZING transformation. I have even now lost more than 140lbs. I was in so much pain and depressed from this I had about given up. I now have my life back. I have rode rollar coasters again, ran and play with my kids, ride a bike and have started rebuilding the life I had lost. If you have issues seriously go in get a consult and listen to them. Get your life back!!! One happy girl here. Thanks again Dr Tazzi, till next time. Best wishes from a to be new Florida girl."

  • "I was so very nervous about going. I from the moment I walked felt welcomed. It takes a lot to get me to a doctors appointment because I work in health care and feel like I never leave. I can not say enough good with the care I have received from Dr. Tazzi and his staff. I whom was barely walking a week and a half ago feel so good now and have very little discomfort. I am regrettable now only about one thing. That I didn't go sooner! Thank you for everything but most of all thank you for giving me the feeling that I have my life back...."
