Helping you EAT, MOVE and THINK your way to better health
The clocks have just gone back, the first frosts have hit and we are suddenly reminded how this time of year often means slips, slides and FALLS...

Stepping out of the house first thing on a frosty morning can be a slippery manoeuvre at this time of year. Often an overnight frost isn't all that obvious and we walk without thinking, put a foot down the wrong way and bang! You're looking at the world from a different perspective.

In these months, much of our time at the practice is spent adjusting those who have done just that. By getting adjusted now, we can help you by realigning your posture to give you better balance so you are less likely to fall. To get that spring back in your step, book in to see us but, in the meantime, some things to think about:

do consider how you walk and don't step on your toes as that pushes your weight forward making you off balance.
adjust your pace and be aware of where you are putting your feet.
do we need to add that high heels are out? No, I didn't think so!
During your next adjustment, we can check your posture is as balanced as possible – or if you don't have an appointment booked, call or contact us here.
At the practice –––>

Estelle is now back to work and you can book appointments with her on Monday and Thursday afternoons or Tuesday and Wednesday mornings. Also starting this month, our practice hours have been updated. You can see the full schedule here.

December is looming and, along with all that the month brings, it's also Toy Day at Naturally Chiropractic. On December 4th, we are offering an adjustment in exchange for either a toy or food that will be donated to the Salvation Army and Whitley Bay Food Bank. We are always so grateful for your generosity, so thanks in advance.
Full details are here.
Warming up –––>
With the colder weather comes the instinct to eat more warming comfort foods. These can often feel stodgy so focus on the best in seasonal vegetables then add a touch of spice for extra heat!

Spiced Vegetable Soup
Adjust the spices and vegetables in this to suit your tastes. Root vegetables give a hearty texture but cauliflower and broccoli are also good additions.

Ground spices: 1 teaspoon each of brown mustard seeds, cumin seeds, paprika, turmeric, coriander seed and ginger
Fresh spices: 2 green chillies, finely chopped, and 1 bay leaf
Vegetables: 1 large onion, 2 garlic cloves, and around 200 grams each of parsnip, sweet potato, butternut squash, carrots and savoy cabbage.

Gently fry the onion and garlic in 2 tablespoons of coconut or olive oil. Once they start to soften, add all te dry spices and stir until they are fragrant. Add all the chopped vegetables and fresh spices, stirring well to coat with the spice mix. Cook for a few minutes before adding 1.5 litres of water, or chicken stock if you have it. Simmer gently for 30 minutes then add salt or any seasoning to taste. This recipe is great with a handful of freshly chopped coriander sprinkled on top when served.
