At Beebe Chiropractic we know how important whole body health is. Below we have outlined a few things we would like you to keep in mind this Spring, in order for you to set yourself up for health success in the months to come.
Buy Local Organic Produce
By supporting local organic produce, you are doing more than just staying healthy and helping yourself, you are building a bigger and better culture for your community. You can probably guess why local organic produce is better for you – less nutrient loss through processing and imports before, but how else is buying local making an impact?
By supporting local produce, you are helping to make a difference in the famers’ lives which allows the rest of the community benefit from fresh food at reasonable prices now and in the future. If farmers are doing well, they will be less likely to sell their land for commercial development purposes – this is beneficial to keeping taxes lower and benefits the local environment and wildlife habitat that Oregonians treasure.
Research a Cleanse
Unless you are already eating a vegan-like diet, you are naturally building up toxins within your body. Short-term these toxins may affect your energy levels, thought processing, and may induce physical ailments. Long-term, if a cleanse is not performed, toxins can cause inflammation which can possibly lead to autoimmunity, heart disease, and cancer.
Everyone’s diets are different and not every cleanse is the same! It is important that you evaluate your diet and do what is best for you. Research and implement the correct cleanse for you.
Here is a general overview for types of cleanses. You can categorize cleanses from beginner, intermediate, and advanced. Beginner will have you cut out certain types of foods from your diet such as dairy, animal protein, sugar, and wheat/gluten, and processed foods. If you have already cut most of these out then you may want to try a vegan cleanse. Finally, you may want to try a raw food or juice cleanse if your diet is already clean, you just have to make sure you are ready physically and mentally. If you have any other questions, give us a call or schedule an appointment with Dr. Beebe.

Spend time outdoors.
While the seemingly infinite technology we have at our fingertips is great and makes our lives easier in many ways, we can also just as easily become negligent of the negative impacts staring down on a screen can have on our health. Our bodies have evolved to naturally benefit from the outside world around us and while it is best to regularly spend time outdoors, even a weekend trip will help reset our bodies.
The constant bombardment of stimulation our minds take in on a daily basis is more draining than we notice. Take a step back from it all and then a step outside, listen to the birds chirp and watch the trees sway in the wind. Taking in the stimulation our bodies naturally process will help act as a natural refuel and recharge for your mental battery. Even just for a moment, escaping the noise, stress, and busyness of our everyday lives and relaxing outside will improve your health in the long run. Have you taken a 15 minute walk today?
Clean and Declutter your home.
Having a cluttered living space with unfinished “projects” can, as you may expect, induce stress and fatigue just as if you were unorganized or have unfinished projects at work. Keeping your home clean regularly, rather than doing a deep clean occasionally, will feel more natural rather than something you feel like you have to do as a chore.
This will allow for your home to feel relaxing and recharging rather than another place where you have work to do. This will improve your health by sleeping better, helping you stay organized in other facets (such as finally getting on that consistent gym schedule), and an overall more positive mental state.
What steps will you take to better your wellness this Spring? We would love to hear from you.
