Easter Traditions

Have A Great Easter Weekend!

Easter traditions and there origins.

DYEING EASTER EGGs

The tradition of decorating eggs of all kinds—even ostrich eggs—may go all the way back to the ancient pagans. It’s easy to see why eggs represent rebirth and life, so associating them with spring and new growth isn’t much of a stretch. To celebrate the new season, it’s said that people colored eggs and gave them to friends and family as gifts.

THE EASTER BUNNY

At first glance, it’s hard to imagine what a giant rabbit has to do with any type of religious holiday. But according to Time, the tradition again dates back to the pagans. They celebrated a goddess of fertility named Eostre—and you may recall that fertility is exactly the trait rabbits are most famous for. It’s thought that German immigrants brought their tradition of an egg-laying hare called "Osterhase" to the U.S. in the 1700s.

EASTER BASKETS

If you squint at an Easter basket, especially one stuffed with faux shredded grass, you can totally see its origins as a nest. Remember the German Osterhase tradition? Well, there was more to it—to encourage this mythical bunny to stop by their houses, children would fashion nests for it to come and lay its colored eggs. Over time (and maybe to contain the mess), the nests evolved into baskets.

Bad Diets

Bad Diets Tied to 400,000 U.S. Deaths

Unhealthy diets may have contributed to as many as 400,000 premature deaths from heart disease and strokes in 2015, a new study estimates.

And, it’s not just the things you should be avoiding, such as salt and trans fats, which are contributing to these deaths. The excess deaths may also be caused by what’s missing in your diet, namely, nuts and seeds, vegetables and whole grains, the researchers said.

Cardiovascular disease is the number 1 cause of death in the United States, killing more people than any other cause. Poor diet is the top risk factor for cardiovascular disease death and therefore needs attention when setting health agendas. Debates on dietary policies tend to focus on cutting out unhealthy foods and nutrients, such as trans fats, salt and sugar sweetened beverages. But this study shows that a large number of heart related deaths may be due to the lack of healthy foods.

Stress

What Can Chiropractic Care Do To Help Reduce Your Stress?

One of the effects of stress is muscle tension and contraction. This muscle tension creates pressures on the structures of your body, leading to misalignments of your spine and the other joints of your body. These misalignments cause nerve irritation, which then can cause common conditions such as; back pain, neck pain, headaches, jaw pain, and even high blood pressure.

Chiropractic adjustments correct these misalignments, reduces spinal nerve irritation, improves circulation, and releases muscle tension, which then helps your body return to a balanced, relaxed state. In many cases, these changes can be enough to get your brain to turn off the fight or flight response, and begin the process of healing.

A healthy, balanced spine is a key factor to effectively manage your stress.

Regardless of the source of your stress, its effects on your body will become evident in your nervous system. The nervous system is the organizer, controller, and coordinator of all your body’s processes. All your other systems, including the circulatory, respiratory, digestive, reproductive, hormonal, muscle and skeletal systems, depend upon your nervous system to work properly. Therefore, the most direct method of correcting illnesses should be directed toward balancing your nervous system and this is exactly what chiropractic and stress management care do.

While, chiropractic care cannot neither make your job less stressful, nor can it create a quieter, calmer world. Chiropractic care can however, help you develop a healthier response to your stress and reduce the potential physical damages caused by stress.
