JOY OF LIFE CHIROPRACTIC - Dr. Laura LaJoieLifelong health can sprout from just a few healthy choices—and those seeds can be planted today, according to Dr. Laura LaJoie of Joy of Life Chiropractic.

She says too many people think attaining a healthy lifestyle means abrupt changes and a radical makeover. In reality, small, incremental steps are the keys to optimum health. Daily health care “maintenance” is more effective (and easier) than planning a massive switch.

Dr. LaJoie recommends starting simple: Drink more water, add a few veggies to your diet and increase your activity with a daily walk or light exercise.

Most importantly, make sure to take stock of your nervous system. If you’re suffering from continual or habitual pain that other doctors may describe as “normal,” you need to schedule an adjustment at Joy of Life Chiropractic. Headaches, back pain and the like are all common—but they are NOT normal!

“The biggest problem facing our health care system today is that the system is designed to treat problems that already exist versus obtaining and maintaining optimum health,” Dr. LaJoie explains.

Be healthy by choice, not by chance. Dr. LaJoie can help you achieve optimum health, regardless of age or stage. Call to GET CHECKED TODAY and plant more seeds for your healthy life! Call (503) 682-9596 for more info.

WILSONVILLE VETERINARY CLINIC - Dr. Kristen HardingeGiving your pet the food off your plate may seem harmless, but there are several foods that we enjoy that can be dangerous for our pets.

1. Chocolate/Coffee contain a substance that can cause heart problems or seizures at higher doses. Dark chocolates are the most dangerous.

2. Grapes/raisins can cause kidney failure.

3. Xylitol, a common sweetener in gum, food, and toothpaste, can cause dangerously low blood sugar and even liver failure in pets.

4. Onions/Garlic can cause red blood cell damage, particularly in cats.

5. Bones might seem like a special treat for your furry friend, but they often splinter and may puncture the intestinal tract or become lodged, requiring surgery.

6. Well-meaning, loving owners like to give their pet a taste of the holiday ham or a bit of bacon grease on their food, but Fatty Foods can result in pancreatitis which causes severe vomiting and diarrhea that requires aggressive treatment.

7. Alcohol/Marijuana can likewise be harmful to your pet. It is important to consult with your veterinarian if you suspect that your pet may have consumed either of these substances.

This is by no means an all-inclusive list. If you suspect that your pet may have consumed any of these items, or if you’re not sure if something may be poisonous, please consult your veterinarian, veterinary emergency clinic, or animal poison control. Prompt action and treatment is more effective than waiting until your pet is showing symptoms.
