Mental Attitude: Chew On This! People who maintain the ability to chew are less likely to develop dementia. This study shows a link between having no teeth and losing cognitive function more rapidly. The action of chewing makes more blood flow to the brain. People with few or no teeth will chew less, resulting in less blood flow to the brain.

Diet: Omega-3 Intake & Young Adults. For the first time, scientists have studied the effects of Omega-3 supplementation on young adults (ages 18-25).

Wellness/Prevention: What Can I Do? According to Leon Chaitow, ND, DO, “Even if conventional medicine tells you that your condition is incurable or that your only option is to live a life dependent on drugs with troublesome side effects, there is hope for improving or reversing your condition.” There are many things we can do to stay healthy and overcome illness once we become ill. The benefits of an excellent diet, a strong exercise program, getting proper rest, and a strong mental attitude (which includes stress reduction) have been studied endlessly with positive results. Being healthy almost always improves your overall body function and decreases your risk of becoming ill.

About chiropractor

Welcome! My name is Dr. David Pearson. Please let me take a moment to share some of my background with you. I have been practicing chiropractic for over 25 years, and I am committed to providing better health and a better way of life to my patients by teaching and practicing the principles of chiropractic wellness. After completing the same undergraduate study that other types of doctors do, for me to become a Chiropractic Physician required another four years of postgraduate college education. I attended Palmer College of Chiropractic graduating summa cum laude in 1985. I have taken advanced courses in quite a few different techniques, such as Gonstead, Thompson, Logan Basic and extremity adjusting. Before going into practice I had to pass a rigorous National Board Examination and stringent licensing requirements. I currently hold licenses to practice in Florida, New York and Colorado. I am a member of the Florida Chiropractic Association (FCA). I also attend post graduate seminars each year and read professional healthcare journals to keep up with the latest research and techniques in chiropractic. I am originally from Western New York, a small town south of the Buffalo -Niagra Falls region, called Jamestown. Lucille Ball was also from Jamestown. My wife, children, and I moved to Palm Coast, Florida a year and a half ago.
