With its physical changes and promise of the birth of a child – a life-changing event – pregnancy can mean stress for a mother.
While stress during pregnancy is natural your Hinterland Chiropractic doctor recommends keeping stress levels as low as possible as stress can have a lifelong impact on a foetus. To keep your pregnancy as stress-free as possible, your doctor shares with you the following stress-busting techniques.
The best way to treat stress is to avoid it. This is doubly true of pregnancy – minimising stress before pregnancy is the best way to deal with it. However, even late in term, small decreases in stress can make an enormous difference. Continue Reading →
We all put up with occasional headaches, but a migraine is much more serious as it can bring your life to a screeching halt.
While most ‘answers’ to migraines are drug-based, at Hinterland Chiropractic we use the latest research to find the most effective strategies for patients enduring this debilitating problem.
What is a Migraine?
Migraines often come with warning signs – preceded by visual disturbances, tingling in a limb, or an ache beneath the eyes and forehead (Pain Med 2008; Epub). Then comes the main event, throbbing pain, nausea, light sensitivity and vertigo. Continue Reading →
Multiple daily servings of fresh fruit are known to reduce weight and supply vitamins, minerals, and fibre. But your trusted Gold Coast chiropractor at Hinterland Chiropractic also wants patients to know that fruit has the ability to dramatically reduce risks for chronic diseases, such as cancer, cardiovascular disease and diabetes.

Flavonoids also promote antioxidants, which can prevent or delay cell and tissue damage and disease. Continue Reading →
The holidays are behind us now and the New Year has begun, for better or worse.
For those among us that struggled to maintain healthy lifestyle habits, the time for excuses and interruptions has passed and the time for turning good intentions into positive actions is now upon us.
Making New Year’s Resolutions and setting goals for the up-coming year are common methods of trying to learn from the old and improve in the new. Like breathing: out with the old and in with the new.
Because of repeated failures to keep resolutions and meet goals, it is tempting to mitigate the pain and embarrassment of failure by not making any new resolution. If we don’t set any goals, we can avoid failure, depression, and embarrassment if we don’t meet those goals.
Problem solved, right? Nope. Not at all. Continue Reading →
Apples grow all over the globe, varying in taste and appearance. But they all have miraculous health benefits including protection from lung disease, cancer, stroke, diabetes and asthma.
That is why Hinterland Chiropractic encourages you to pick apples, from either stores or orchards. Apples are delicious and “pick up” your health.
According to scientists from Cornell University the benefits derive from a combination of phytochemicals, not a specific vitamin or nutrient (Nature 2000; 405:903-4).
Organic apples pack a powerful punch against cancer. Eat the entire apple as the skin is rich in fiber and is considered particularly effective at fighting cancer. Continue Reading →
Are you suffering from unexplained discomforts such as headaches, muscle tension, or general ill feeling? Perhaps you are more exhausted that you used to be and have trouble sleeping?

At Hinterland Chiropractic, we recommend chiropractic and meditation as natural and practical approaches to helping to alleviate stress and anxiety and lead to a better quality of life and wellness. Continue Reading →
