You may have heard that diet soda is not good for your health, but do you know why?
If you have type 2 diabetes, consider the following information the Chiropractors at AICA Atlanta have learned regarding the dangers of artificial sweeteners.
Type 2 Diabetes and Diet Soda
Both diet and non-diet sodas contain many ingredients that are detrimental to your health. Non-diet sodas are full of added or processed sugars like high-fructose corn syrup.
The American Heart Association says that added sugars are directly linked to high blood pressure and triglyceride levels, which both contribute to heart disease and type 2 diabetes. Such beverages contain unnecessary empty calories and contribute to the obesity epidemic in America.
If you are looking for easy ways to incorporate new healthy habits into your life, the Chiropractors at AICA Atlanta recommend walking more often.
Walking is one of the easiest ways to exercise and is completely safe for everyone, regardless of age or medical history.
The National Institutes of Health says that walking is useful for increasing personal energy and balancing mood swings, while also serving as an excellent channel for:
Recent information has changed general attitudes toward consuming reduced-fate, low-fat, and other fat-free foods.
These types of food often replace healthy fats with processed sugars, salts, and refined carbohydrates, which all dramatically affect how type 2 diabetics feel and function.
When you consume the ingredients and chemicals that are found in fat-free foods, your glucose levels spike. For type 2 diabetics, this can result in some detrimental consequences including heart attack or stroke.
Since November is National Diabetes Awareness Month, the Chiropractors at AICA Atlanta are promoting education around how people with diabetes can manage their condition more effectively.
If you have type 2 diabetes, consider the following information that highlights what types of food you should avoid at all costs. When you are ready for additional help, call the Chiropractors at AICA Atlanta at (404) 889-8828 to schedule a free consultation within the week.
Subluxations are misalignments that develop within one or more of your vertebrae and hinder nerve circulation.

The Chiropractors at AICA Atlanta treat subluxations on a daily basis and are experienced at rendering specific techniques that provide immediate pain relief.
If you suffer from subluxations, consider the following information that highlights some of the lesser known causes and why Chiropractic care is the perfect solution.
Heart disease tops the list for the leading cause of death in the United States.

In order to help you get through the holidays without becoming overwhelmed or stressed out, the Chiropractors at AICA Atlanta are here to show you how to use positive stress to your advantage.
At first glimpse, healthy stress may seem like an oxymoron—but it’s true, stress can be good for you in certain situations and certain doses.
Your body is able to respond to stress, and this has been one of the keys to our continued existence—but what good can it do for us in contemporary times?
Turns out, more than you may think.
It can be difficult to keep your immune system in tip-top shape, and winter months and cold and flu season put it to the real test.
While eating a healthy diet, exercising often and getting regular chiropractic adjustments all help, there’s, even more; you can do.
The Chiropractors at AICA Atlanta recommend giving your immune system a lift by avoiding these sometimes-surprising saboteurs:
The Chiropractors at AICA Atlanta have no doubt that you have experienced an afternoon energy crash, uncontrollable yawning or the simple desire to close your eyes and rest.
It may be hard to remain alerted, but it’s even tougher to decipher the information we receive about sleep, the best way to get it and most importantly, how much we need.
And, it seems we’re a tired bunch; a recent Gallup poll shows that 40 percent of us get less than the currently recommended seven to nine hours. Is that really how much we need?
The truth is it depends. Your sleep needs are determined by your age, your health and how you perform with different amounts of sleep.
If you suffer from insomnia or are restless throughout the night, you know how awful it can be trying to make it through the next day.
According to the National Sleep Foundation, more than 50 percent of American experience some sleep disorder, making it almost impossible to perform at peak levels during the day.
If you suffer from insomnia or are unable to get a full night’s rest because of chronic pain, contact the Chiropractors at AICA Atlanta right away.
Sugar tastes amazing.
However, the more AICA Atlanta’s Chiropractors learn about the health effects of sugar, the more we understand why it’s important to avoid it, especially if you have Diabetes.
