Enjoy a Healthy Valentine’s Day, Advises Newport Beach Chiropractor


Chiropractors are jumping on the “holiday special” bandwagon by sending out email and hard-copy offers linked to Valentine’s Day. It’s a smart idea – because Valentine’s Day is all about love. Sure, most of us focus on spoiling our significant other – with candy, flowers or a trip to a fine restaurant. How about taking a different tack and showing your concern for maintaining good health for you and your date?

Go ahead and gift your significant other with dark chocolate. The rich candy offers a wide variety of health benefits, particularly if you opt for organic chocolate with at least 70 percent cacao.

Among chocolate’s healthy properties: It contains fiber and a variety of minerals, including iron, magnesium, copper, manganese, potassium, phosphorus, zinc, and selenium. Chocolate is an antioxidant – reportedly superior to blueberries or acai berries. Dark chocolate also stimulates the release of nitric oxide (NO), which relaxes your blood vessels. Thus, it can lower blood pressure.

However, instead of following up that sweet gift by going out to dinner and eating a heavy, high-caloric meal, why not cook up a tasty, healthful meal at home? You can Google a fast and nutritious meal that you and your honey can share.

Opt for a new experience to lift your spirits. Find someplace the two of you haven’t been to before, and spend the day exploring a museum, a new hiking opportunity, or any of the tourist attractions you, as a local resident, have never bothered to visit.

Finally, show your spine some love by concentrating on proper posture, exercising to improve your core strength, and managing your weight so you don’t place extra stress on your spine.

Of course, you can always opt for a massage at Wellness Choice Center in Newport Beach.

Or treat yourself to a chiropractic adjustment by Dr. Nona Djavid of Wellness Choice Center. Chiropractors focus on correcting spinal misalignments, or vertebrae that have shifted out of alignment. Misalignments can lead to many health complaints, from headaches and back pain to ear infections and even attention deficit hyperactive disorder (ADHD). Chiropractic adjustments can repair the misalignments and the disorders associated with them. Chiropractic can also protect weekend athletes from injuries.

What’s more, chiropractors trained in Chiropractic BioPhysics (CBP) take that one step further, correcting spinal misalignments by remodeling and realigning the spine to restore normal nerve flow.

At Wellness Choice Center, Dr. Nona Djavid and Dr. Jane Macris are among only a handful of Orange County, California, chiropractors trained in CBP. Wellness Choice chiropractors have helped thousands of Newport Beach, Irvine, Newport Coast, Corona Del Mar, and Costa Mesa, California, residents live healthier lives.
