The British Journal of Sports Medicine recently published an article (March 31, 2017) stating that “Saturated fat does not clog the arteries: coronary heart disease is a chronic inflammatory condition, the risk of which can be effectively reduced from healthy lifestyle interventions.” It may come as a shock to you but many doctors have been preaching this message for 30 years.

Happy Sad It really is no secret, with my growing baby bump, that I am going to be going on maternity leave. Which means in the near future, Lighthouse Chiropractic is going to be taking affirmative action to hire.
