Mental Attitude: Anemia Increases Dementia Risk. 
Using data from the Korean National Health Insurance Service-National Health Screening Cohort database, researchers found that seniors with mild-to-moderate anemia have about a 19-47% increased risk for developing dementia. Additionally, the research team also observed that patients with severe anemia have a nearly six-times greater risk for developing dementia when compared to their peers with no history of iron deficiency.

Health Alert: Diet May Help Epileptics When Medications Fail... 
The ketogenic diet is a very low-carb, high-fat diet that seeks to place the body into a metabolic state in which it becomes more efficient at burning fat for energy. In this study, researchers found that nearly two-thirds of kids with epilepsy on the ketogenic diet successfully controlled their seizures. This is an important finding since experts estimate that only about 30% of individuals with epilepsy respond to traditional medicines. Dr. James Wheless, a spokesman for the American Epilepsy Society said, “Although medical therapy is our mainstay for treatment, ketogenic dietary therapy can be a very effective option.”

Diet: Eat More Fruits and Veggies! 
Compared to individuals with healthy blood sugar levels, the average patient with prediabetes consumes fewer servings of fruits and vegetables in their diet. This finding suggests that eating a produce-rich diet can help individuals better control their blood sugar.

Exercise: Reducing Sitting Time Among Office Workers. 
In a recent study, investigators examined the impact of a workplace intervention that addressed organizational, physical environment, and individual behavioral changes to help reduce sitting time among employees in an office setting. The approach led to a significant reduction in sitting time during work hours and throughout the day—improvements that persisted for up to a year. The findings confirm that it’s possible for workplace interventions to reduce sitting time among generally sedentary employees.

Chiropractic: Are Heel Pain and Back Pain Linked? 
That annoying heel pain today may lead to future low back pain and disability. A recent study set out to compare the prevalence of low back pain among patients with and without heel pain and found that those with heel pain were more likely to have back pain than participants without heel pain. The researchers also found a link between reduced foot/ankle function and higher lower back disability. The findings suggest that evaluating foot/ankle function in patients with back pain may result in better treatment outcomes.

Wellness/Prevention: Daily Multivitamin May Reduce Cardiovascular Risk. 
Among a group of 1,708 heart attack survivors, those given a high-dose multivitamin, multi-mineral supplement had a 54% reduced risk for a poor cardiovascular outcome when compared with participants who consumed a placebo. This finding surprised researchers who will repeat this experiment with a larger pool of participants in the future.

I have been going to Dr Baratta for about 25 years. So 25 years ago I had a bout with my back I mean couldn't get out of bed. It was a Sunday and my husband was in the yellow pages looking for a chiropractor luckily Dr Baratta is in the front of the alphabet so it didn't take long to find him. Anyway he said to meet him at his office in 30 minutes we did he fixed the problem and he didn't even charge us extra for a Sunday. Ever since we've been with him. He's an excellent chiropractor always feel listened to and he's always honest like when my back is in bad shape he'll say come in 3 times a week but now it's better still not quite perfect and he'll say every two weeks I never feel like he's trying to make money. He always has gone above and beyond and has always fixed whatever problem I have had with my back

Dr. B is great Chiropractor. I began seeing him a few years ago after being scared away from Chiropractic medicine by a poor Doctor. Other recommendations sent me to his door. After years of abuse to my back I found it hurt to sit, stand, or walk without pain. I'm virtually pain free unless I do something bad. Dr. B keeps everything level, an stretched an more mobile, allowing me to walk 3+ miles a day an bike 45 miles per week I am 68 years young. The office staff is always friendly and professional. Dr. B also treats my husband and neighbors. I highly recommend Dr. Baratta. A very happy mobile pain free client!!

I have been a patient of Dr. Baratta's since 2012. Dr. Baratta has helped to relieve chronic pain issues including neck and back pain, and debilitating headaches. He always takes the time to be present and communicate. Dr. Baratta is excellent!

Dr. Baratta is the best chiropractor in the area! I went to see Dr. Baratta for preventive measures. I did not have much pain, but with my profession back problems are a real issue. Dr. B was thorough and knowledgeable during my appointment. After his adjustment, I left his office with improved posture and flexibility. Dr. Baratta gave me advice to remain healthy during work and was genuinely concerned with my health.

10/10 would recommend!
