Are You Deficient in Calcium and/or Magnesium?


Calcium and magnesium are essential for over 300 functions in your body. From a chiropractic standpoint especially, I highly recommend the regular intake of these two substances due to the benefits gained relating to the nerves, bones and muscles.


A deficiency in magnesium and/or calcium can account for many unwanted conditions, such as:

  • Jumpiness
  • Sleep interruption
  • Stress
  • Depression
  • PMS
  • Lowered immune system
  • Nerve and muscle spasms
  • Muscle cramps
  • Anxiety, tension and irritability
  • Soreness in the muscles
  • Arthritic pain
  • Irritable Bowel Syndrome


It’s obvious that calcium and magnesium deficiencies are a pretty common thing, as the above listed conditions are very common. There are a combination of reasons which account for so many people unfortunately experiencing a deficiency in these two necessary nutrients. One of these reasons has to do with the amount of toxins we put into our bodies, not only from a Standard American Diet, but also from the environment and from prescription medications.


The most effective way to address your deficiency is with supplements. Taking CalMag either in capsule or powdered form, you are able to increase the levels of calcium and magnesium in your body, therefore alleviating these conditions. Here at Ryan Lee Chiropractic Center we sell CalMag in powdered form for better absorbancy.


Why You Need To Get Moving


We all know that getting into the groove of an exercise routine can be difficult when you’ve been out of the game for awhile. The hardest part is simply getting started. With that comes motivation to get started – a reason to get moving. The sake of your health alone should be reason enough.


The benefits of exercise extend to stress management, and we all know that stress can account for a lot of unwanted health conditions. Exercise is absolutely significant for your health. It doesn’t have to be a strenuous or intense form of exercise to reap the benefits. Find an activity that you can enjoy, or at least bear, and get yourself moving. The most important aspect is that you’ve stimulated the production of endorphins. Even 30 minute walks per day, a few times a week, could make a big difference.


Not only do endorphins reduce the level of stress you experience on a day-to-day basis, but they also contribute to boosting your immune system, reducing risk of heart disease and helping with chronic pain. If these aren’t reason enough, then I don’t know what is. Give various types of exercise a try – yoga, walking, hiking, swimming, for example, are simple activities to get into – and find something that you can maintain on a weekly routine basis.

What’s Chiropractic?

The Alaskan Assistant

I mentioned in my first post that I knew very little about chiropractic before I was hired to work for Dr. Baastrup.  In this post, I’d like to take you through the basics.  If you’re a new CA, pay attention, this is what it’s all about.

Health is not a binary state, where you’re either “sick” or “not sick”.  It’s a spectrum that runs from death on the one hand, to optimum health on the other.  It’s not just the absence of illness or infirmity, but the presence of “aliveness” and energy.  Health is physical, mental, and social.  Symptoms, the thing many people take to be the primary indicator that something is wrong, are actually “first to go, last to show”, as we say.

If you don’t believe me that symptoms are a poor indicator of health, think of appendicitis.  It comes with incredible pain, yes.  But if that pain…

Why Choose Custom Orthotics?


Finding the right support for your feet can be major. It can mean the difference between feeling balanced, in shape and supported, or suffering from unwanted conditions like hip and neck pain.


The difference between using a mass-produced orthotics product and a custom-made one can be significant. Depending on the condition of your feet, the mass-produced one may not do much – if anything – to serve its designed purpose.


Mass-produced orthotics only address one arch in your feet, while our custom orthotics keep all three arches in mind and take into account the precise and particular imbalances going on with your feet in order to support your arches in the most effective way possible.


The feet are the foundation of the body. They support you when you stand, walk, and run. Feet also help protect your spine, bones, and soft tissues from stress as you move. By stabilizing and balancing your feet, Foot Levelers orthotics enhance your body’s performance and efficiency, reducing pain and contribute to your total body wellness.


Schedule an appointment with us today to get custom made orthotics specifically designed for your feet.

What Chiropractic Treatment Can Do For Your Health


Chiropractic treatment can impact your health to a marked degree. There are several things that happen when you receive chiropractic treatment, which in turn positively affect your immune system.


Chiropractic care does the following for your immunity:

  • Enhances white blood cells
  • Relieves stress on the nerve system
  • Regulates the autonomic nervous system


When patients come in for chiropractic adjustments they’re often surprised by a multitude of bodily issues resolving that they didn’t expect to occur or specifically come in for. This is because the nervous system acts as a communicator from our brain to the rest of the body, therefore being responsible for our main bodily functions. Increased energy, improved sleep, weight regulation – these are just some of the impressive results that come along with chiropractic treatment.
