Dr, Justin Ashlock (of
Ashlock Chiropractic, 12899 E. 76th St. N., #101, Owasso, OK 74055) spoke
to the Collinsville Chamber of Commerce Thursday August 5, 2010. The topic
of his address was making healthy choices now to hopefully avoid medical problems
rather than waiting for a health crisis to occur.
With heart disease and
cancer the top killers (along with stroke and diabeties as the top disablers),
Dr. Ashlock recommended exercise and diet choices to greatly reduce the risk
of each of those illnesses. He also noted the importance of reducing stress
as it contributes to most health problems. Less caffine, more downtown and
more routine/sleep were recommended.
A sample of Dr. Ashlock's
key points: our nation uses too many pills; we unfortunately wait and treat
the sick rather than working to keep people healthy; and it takes about 21
days to change to a healthy eating habit so stick with it.
