Too much refined sugar can harm your immune system.

Avoid Sugar, Boost the Immune System

Visits to your Knoxville chiropractor at Homberg Chiropractic and Wellness can boost your immune system by properly addressing spine mis-alignments that affect messages from your nervous system to the rest of the body. However, you must also do your part to keep your immune system healthy through the food you eat. Did you know that

Digestive System, Overall Health Connected

Some of you may have heard or read things about the connection between the digestive system and the brain. Others might find that a bit odd, but the connection is real. An unhealthy digestive tract can affect many other parts of the body. We rely on our digestive systems to extract the vitamins and nutrients

Good Nutrition - Organic Produce

Good Nutrition

Hippocrates was a Greek physician and is sometimes known as the father of western medicine. He once said “Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food.” If good old Hippocrates were alive today, he’d be eating those words – no pun intended. Our modern day food supply, unless it is organic, should hardly

Organic vs All Natural

Organic vs All Natural

I choose to eat mostly organic food because I don’t want pesticides, and who knows what else to be part of my diet. Eating clean foods is good for my body and helps me feel better. I’ve had a number of patients ask me about eating organic, what the benefits are and what the difference

The Healthy Berry that Shouldn’t Come in a Can

You might only think of cranberries as a Thanksgiving side dish, but these tart berries can be more than just a once-a year-treat.

Vitamin D

I’m sure you’ve heard me mention the importance of vitamin D many times, and with cold and flu season approaching us, I am going to mention it again! We don’t find vitamin D in many foods. We can get it from sunlight, but we don’t get a lot of that during the fall and winter.
