Because we are aware of this fact, nothing is more frustrating than laying in bed waiting... waiting to fall asleep and knowing that it’s not going to happen. You may have the laptop propped somehow, playing your favorite show; you may be lazily scrolling through your phone, barely processing the last dregs of your news feed. But when it comes time to shut off the brain and get down to REM sleep, many of us are finding it harder than ever. Our minds are constantly stimulated, from the trumpets of push notifications during a stressful commute to using television as a means of winding down from a stressful day. If the flux of life in Houston has you spun out, read on to find out how chiropractic can help you rediscover restful, restorative sleep.
One of the biggest challenges people face when trying to eat less meat is how to get enough protein. But ask any diehard vegetarian and they will probably scorn such a suggestion. Meat is so engrained in the Western diet that we have scarcely taken the time to learn recipes that don’t have meat as the central source of protein.

The health benefits of walking are well known, but for the purposes of this blog here’s a quick reminder:
The basic health benefits of a good walk are too many to ignore. On days when you can’t spare a second to make it to the gym, a brisk walk may be the only physical boost your body receives. Yet, far too few of us are getting the daily steps we need to reap such benefits. Here is our guide to getting more steps throughout the day.
21st century humans are certainly living longer but it is worth asking how we are living in the later years of our life. The spine is the pinnacle of wellness- the structure that allows us to truly be human. It supports the weight of our upper bodies and keeps us upright; it facilitates communication of the nervous system, allowing for us to process ultra-sensory information in seconds and form ultra-human decisions and reactions to such stimulation. But It is not meant to last forever; spines are simply not meant to last as long as our life expectancies nowadays. Spinal degeneration is the fate of us all, but we also have the power to decide to what degree this degeneration defines our lives. At Greenway Plaza Chiropractic, we believe that spinal longevity is a key to holistic wellness.
