This week is International Infection Prevention Week. So we at Healing Lotus Acupuncture would like to remind everyone (health care providers, patients, parents, kids and the general public), of the extreme importance of washing your hands with soap and water to prevent the spread of disease.
Germs (viruses, bacteria, fungus) can easily be spread by not washing your hands correctly. These germs can promote the spread of gastrointestinal and respiratory illnesses like:
Below is a great video I use to educate kids on how germs are spread.

Vitamin C (a.k.a. ascorbic acid) is one of the worse supplements you can buy over – the – counter (OTC). Like other OTC supplements, you never know what you’re truly getting in the ingredients, because most all OTC brands use low-quality ascorbic acid that has been sourced from China, the world’s largest producer of ascorbic acid. Between the years 2013 and 2015 China contributed 80 – 90% of the world’s vitamin C supply.
If you remember, China does not have a very solid reputation when it comes to quality, especially as it pertains to keeping chemicals and unknown substances out of their products; i.e. recent examples include lead in toys, contaminated infant formula and powdered milk.
To make this problem worse, the U.S. government does not test imported vitamins and supplements or their ingredients. For cheap OTC supplement brands this is a plus, because they can adulterate the products with unknown substances.
This is just one of many reasons I strongly recommend patients and consumers alike to purchase physician grade supplements, which are held to a much higher standard of scrutiny.
Thorne Research is recommended for 3 main reasons:

According to the American Heart Association 1 out 3 or 77.9 million adults have high blood pressure, half of whom don't have it under control. Heart disease is also the leading cause of death for both men and women. In the Quad Cities, the prevalence of heart disease is 9.2% compared to the national average of 6.1%.
Unfortunately, Western medicine's answer to high blood pressure is to suppress the symptom with prescription drugs, which you are expected to take for the rest of your life. That's not a treatment! Getting to the root of the problem and treating the root is the answer to better patient outcomes.
On February 10th at 6pm – 7pm inside Moline Chiropractic Clinic, Dr. Wayne Davis of Moline Chiropractic Clinic and Scott Stewart, MSAc., Dipl.Ac., LAc. of Healing Lotus Acupuncture will be giving a presentation on many of the often overlooked causes of high blood pressure, and the effectiveness of Eastern medicine and chiropractic care, along with lifestyle modifications, which can naturally lower blood pressure. There will also be a brief synopsis on how the mechanism of acupuncture and chiropractic care can modulate the body’s innate regulatory system, and thereby lower blood pressure.
These events fill - up fast, so be sure to reserve your seat. You can also call our office with any questions you might have, (309) 764.4753.
