For those of you that missed last months’ “Wellness Series,” Here are some highlights:
Note: The series covered four hours of material so these sound bites, though intriguing, are just a fraction of what you would learn attending the entire series.
Healthy fat such as that found in raw nuts, avocados, olives, egg yolks, meats and coconut oil is the preferred fuel of the body and has profound health benefits. 50-70% of your diet should consist of healthy fat. Cholesterol is vital to your health and no life form can live without it. You should eat as much as your food raw as possible, failing to do so leads to malnutrition, digestive problems and obesity.
You will never be optimally healthy unless you’re consistently exercising. Frequency, length of time and the intensity of your exercise sessions needs to be modified constantly because too much is bad for you. Anaerobic and strength training exercise are the two best types of exercise for burning fat and keeping it off. Acceleration training is the best for the immobile. Walking or running backwards is better for you than forwards.
85% or more of all diseases have an emotional element. The study of epigenetics is showing us that we can change the expression of our genes. The placebo effect is so powerful it can give you the same outcomes as if you had received arthroscopic knee surgery. You should almost never take an antidepressant for clinical depression, they work no better than a sugar pill. Too much or too little sleep accelerates tumor growth and can cause type II diabetes.
Only 15% of standard medical procedures have been proven scientifically. This is why you don’t want to go to a medical doctor for chronic conditions. One MD says, “All disease results from the disruption of the flow of intelligence.” We discussed three hypothesis for the “cause” of disruption to the flow of intelligence. I presented the most impressive studies performed to date on the efficacy and safety of upper cervical specific care.
The purpose of the “Wellness Series” is not only to educate our patients about this vital information, but be able to share it with the individuals that have not yet experienced the benefits of living a healthy lifestyle and being under upper cervical care. If you belong to a club, church or company that invites guest speakers, or would be willing to invite a guest speaker to share this series, or a portion of it, with the group, contact Sarah here at the office so our community can benefit from knowing what the four pillars of health and wellness are and begin to implement them in their lives.
As you know, Dr. Besso and I run a busy practice. We have specific objectives we want to accomplish on each one of your visits to us. Our primary objective is to assess whether or not you’re subluxated. If you are subluxated, we correct it, and then assess to make sure the correction is complete. There are reasons why we focus so intensely on this, but our focus doesn’t negate the other aspects of health and wellness. We are educated and qualified to teach you on so much more, and know it would be beneficial to you if we did! So starting Thursday, January 10, 2013 from 6:30-7:30 we are offering a series of lectures focused on the four pillars of health. Here’s a little of what you can expect at each lecture:
Folks, this is serious stuff that we just can’t give due respect to in a regular office visit. In fact, I’ve had a heck of a time taking these very broad topics and constructing them into 45 minute power point presentations that I feel will give you the most important information you need to achieve optimal health and wellness. But I think I have managed to create a really great series packed with great info. So bring a friend and your questions to the “Wellness Series”, it may just transform your life!

Where: The Besso Clinic of Chiropractic, 4015 Darrow Rd. Suite A, Stow, OH 44224

STOW, OH — As part of its partnership with the Marine Toys for Tots campaign in 2012, the Besso Clinic of Chiropractic, Inc. will serve as a Toys for Tots drop-off location from now through December 13th, 2012.

Flu season is upon us, and we are inundated with reminders, advice, and advertisements advising us to “Remember your Flu Shot”. In fact, I have been reading about healthcare workers who must submit to mandatory flu shots or lose their jobs (link). Protection from influenza is an important topic. As adults responsible for the care of ourselves and our families, we want protection from the hazards of influenza. But, the question remains: What is the best way to do this?
A scientific study published in The Lancet reveals that influenza vaccines only prevent influenza in 1.5 out of every 100 adults who are injected with the flu vaccine (study link). And the risks are great. Serious reactions to the flu vaccine include, but are not limited to:
· Life-threatening allergies to various ingredients
· Guillain-Barre Syndrome (a severe paralytic disease that is fatal in about 1 in 20 cases)
· Encephalitis (brain inflammation)
· Neurological disorders
· Thrombocytopenia (a serious blood disorder)
So, what is the alternative? A healthy immune system is strong and can often prevent influenza from being overcome by influenza. In fact, Vitamin D3 has proven far better than vaccines at preventing influenza infections. (study link)
Thankfully, our patients are Besso Clinic of Chiropractic are on the right track. Our gentle chiropractic technique aims to bring the spine into proper alignment, especially in the area of the upper cervical vertebrae. When this proper alignment is achieved, the nerves are able to properly communicate with each other. And since the nervous system controls all functions of the body- including the immune system- Chiropractic care can improve immune system function.
Of course, getting plenty of Vitamin D, eating right including avoiding sugar, regular exercise, getting adequate sleep, and avoiding stress are also important. Try to incorporate these into your life during this season, and make time to visit Besso Clinic- and stay healthy through this flu season.
On October 2nd, 2012 Drs. Geoffrey Besso and David Yates of Besso Clinic of Chiropractic on Darrow Road in Stow, Ohio gave away complementary treatments to their current patients as part of their seventh annual Patient Appreciation Day. Then, on October 4th and 5th, Drs. Besso and Yates opened the practice to new patients, offering complimentary consultations, exams, and x-rays. In exchange for these visits, Besso Clinic collected financial and food donations to benefit The Haven of Rest rescue mission and the Peanut Butter and Jelly Outreach for Mason School of Akron, OH.
The week was a great success! Over 130 patients and their families participated in this event, donating nearly 400 pounds of nonperishable food items, and over $2500 to the local charities.
“We have been in Stow for seven years and it has really flown by. We feel extremely blessed to have the opportunity not only to help our patients, but to love them and support a couple of great ministries along the way” says Dr. Geoffrey Besso.
Besso Clinic would also like to thank the many local businesses who partnered with them to make this event a success: Bellacino’s Pizza and Grinders, Burger King, Chick-fil-a, Consigners Collection, Dunkin Donuts, Evelyn Dickerson Hair Design, The Lockview Restaurant and Bar, The Middlefield Banking Company, Minuteman Press, Old Carolina Barbecue Company, Oregon Corner’s Florist, Pizza Hut, Rockne’s, Robeks, Subway, Starbucks, Sweet Frog, Teresa’s Pizza, and Zeppe’s Pizzeria.

Dr. Geoffrey Besso and his team at Besso Clinic of Chiropractic are planning a creative approach to the traditional parade float. They will be bringing a camel along with them to the Fourth of July Parade in Stow, OH.
“We really wanted to find a visual way to show people exactly how Besso Clinic can help them find relief from their chronic pain” says Dr. Besso. “The slogan ‘One Hump or Two…Besso Clinic is for you’ helps them to understand that we can help realign their spine and bring it back to balance. When the spine is properly balanced patients find relief from back pain, migraine headaches, fibromyalgia, and many more conditions.”
While enjoying the Stow July Fourth Parade at 10:00 am, don’t forget to look out for them. We are sure they will be easy to find!
