                We are Moving! 

Dear Patients,

It is with great pleasure that we write to inform you that on September 14, 2017 we will open our doors in a more spacious and comfortable office. Our new address will be: 4004 W St. Joe Hwy - still here in Delta Township, barely 2 miles from our current location. Our phone number will not change, it is still 517-327-7463 and our contact email address is still cornerstone@drkillian.com. The new location is near the corner of Waverly & St. Joe, on the north side of the Home Depot/Sears Outlet/Ollie's parking lot and we will have much better parking facilities. 

Since we opened for business at our current location in 2001 your loyal support has helped us grow, and now we need more space to serve you better. We have been praying for guidance concerning our location for quite some time and feel that this is an answer to those prayers. We will have better adjusting rooms, the ability to add more massage rooms, and offer additional therapy services as well.

As we progress in accomplishing the details involved with such an endeavor, we will make ourselves available to answer any questions about the new location and our services. Please feel free to ask and we'll be happy to help. We look forward to continuing to care for your chiropractic and massage needs here and seeing you at our new location soon!

We sincerely thank you for all your prayers.
God Bless,

Dr. Brian Killian & Staff
Cornerstone Chiropractic and Massage

A Fresh Coat of Paint

A Healthy Diet Includes Fruits and Veggies
Regular Chiropractic Care and a Plan for Good Health
Worldwide, the number of people with diabetes, heart disease, and cancer continues to increase. Despite the expenditure of well over $100 billion in pharmaceutical research and new drug development, the impact on global health in the area of chronic disease has not been significant. It is reasonable to conclude that solutions to these dire problems lie elsewhere.

In fact, lifestyle has come to be recognized as the key factor in both causation and treatment of these life-threatening disorders. A healthy diet, regular vigorous exercise, and sufficient rest are the cornerstones of such meaningful lifestyle change.

Regular chiropractic care is a critical supplement to these healthy lifestyle choices, as it provides necessary support to the functioning of the nerve system, your body's master system. With a healthy nerve system, your body is able to make the best use of the good things you're providing in terms of food, exercise, and rest. Adding regular chiropractic care to your lifestyle plan contributes substantially to your overall health and well-being.

As all real estate brokers know, a fresh coat of paint will make any property look good. Whether your home is a row house in Baltimore, a Paris atelier, or even a Winnebago, a new coat of paint will bring a shine to the interior and put a smile on the faces of both residents and guests. You may find that a similar smile will appear on your face and the faces of your friends and family members when you engage in activities that provide you with a metaphorical fresh coat of paint. Specifically, you'll obtain your "new look" by incorporating a healthy diet and regular, vigorous exercise in your daily routine.1,2

But what exactly is "a healthy diet," and what is really meant by "regular, vigorous exercise"? A healthy diet consists in a daily practice of consuming food from all five food groups: fruits, vegetables, grains, proteins, and dairy. Importantly, a healthy diet includes at least five daily servings of fresh fruits and vegetables. Overall, the more colors on your plate, the better. If you're consistently eating yellow, green, red, blue, orange, and purple foods such as squash, corn, grapefruit, kale, broccoli, apples, peppers, blueberries, carrots, oranges, potatoes, and eggplant, you're well on your way toward a lifelong healthy diet.

The grains food group contains whole grains such as whole wheat, brown rice, bulgur, and barley. For those who require gluten-free whole grains, the numerous choices include amaranth, buckwheat, quinoa, brown rice, and teff. The protein food group includes beef, lamb, chicken, eggs, fish, beans and peas, and nuts and seeds. There are plenty of protein sources for vegetarians and others who don't eat meat or other foods derived from animals such as eggs and milk. The dairy group is included to provide sources of calcium.3 These foods include low-fat and fat-free choices such as milk, yoghurt, and cheese. If you're a vegetarian or have allergies to dairy products, other sources of calcium include kale, collard greens, spinach, salmon, sardines, blackstrap molasses, and beans. For men and women aged 19 to 50, the recommended daily requirement for calcium is 1000mg. For women over age 50 and men over age 70, the recommended daily requirement for calcium is 1200mg.

Regular, vigorous exercise means doing at least 30 minutes of exercise five days a week. Walking, running, bike riding, swimming, using an elliptical machine or treadmill, and weight training are all good choices. Lifting weights three times a week and doing some form of aerobic exercise two times a week is one example of such a program of vigorous daily exercise. For some people, walking five days a week for at least 30 minutes each day represents an optimal program. Find out what works best for you and do that consistently. Change your program every few months to keep both your mind and body challenged. Again, the specific form of exercise is not critical. What works for one person will not work for another. The key is consistency. Five days a week, at least 30 minutes a day.

Your fresh coat of paint is not merely metaphorical. Once your new lifestyle changes take effect, probably within three to six weeks, you'll begin to develop an inner glow and an outer glow that will be visible for all to see.
