A recent article in the New York Times raises awareness of the harmful effects of “Energy” beverages. I can understand the need to feel energized to do a presentation, or get through a workout, or to just fight traffic in the morning.
Another question you may ask yourself is: Is there another way? I had plenty of energy as a kid without artificial stimulants, what is different now?
The first suggestion I would make to someone who feels the need for stimulants is to replace the simple carbs (white flour, white rice, white potatoes) and sugars in their diet with quality vegetables and healthy fats. What is missing in the former is nutrients, the latter contains vitamins, minerals and fatty acids which fuel your nervous system and brain.
Next, get moving! Movement is the key to energizing your body, and the benefits are long lasting and wide ranging.
Lastly, take care of your spine and nerve system. Stress is pervasive, when stressed we don’t always make the best decisions – especially with food. People under regular Network Spinal Analysis care report and improved ability to think and concentrate (without stimulants).
We all want to be present, alert and full of energy. You can have this, and be healthy too by taking care of your body and giving it what it needs.

“A central tenant of Network Spinal Analysis is that change rarely comes directly from the area in the body that is defensive, guarded and wounded. Instead, it comes after the individual becomes aware of the area where resources exist. Meaningful change comes when a place of connection is brought to awareness and “inspires” or entrains other parts of the system.”

When your nervous system cannot adapt to current stress and energy demands, the spine, muscles and vertebrae are locked into a limited range of expression. The Spinal Entrainment contact, unique to Network Spinal Analysis, allows the nervous system to “reset” and reorganize through spinal awareness.
The reorganization of the nervous system is demonstrated by improved posture, more energy, wider range of emotions expressed. Lifestyle changes including: change in diet and exercise habits, change in long term behavior like career or a relationships. All these findings and more have been associated with those receiving Network Spinal Analysis Care.

A few months ago I saw a link titled “The Truth about High Fructose Corn Syrup” clicked the link. It went to an industry website that touted HFCS was no worse than sugar, and after reading this article, I realized they are correct, they are both awful.
This article is a must read.
