                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

Allergies and Asthma

 Nutritional Approaches for Allergies and Asthma

In addition to avoiding one's specific hypersensitivity triggers such as dairy products, shellfish, or gluten, there are many proactive nutritional solutions available. All will help restore the body's natural ability to create internal balance and more normal functioning.

The most important recommendation is to drink enough water. Most of us don't do this. Coffee, tea, juice, and soda don't count. Water is the key - eight cups per day are recommended. If you're not used to drinking water, start with four cups per day, get used to doing that, and work your way up to eight cups per day.

Put simply, if you're not drinking enough water, your internal metabolic environment is toxic. For those with hypersensitivity problems, not drinking enough water exacerbates the problem. Drink water!

Also, make sure you're doing food combining - eating portions of protein and portions of carbohydrate at each meal. Combining protein and carbohydrate is metabolically efficient, keeping your blood sugar level throughout the day, and removing unwanted stress on your endocrine and other systems.

Allergies and asthma are big business. Approximately 50 million Americans suffer from allergies, and approximately 20 million suffer from asthma. With some overlap between the conditions, more than 60 million Americans experience either allergies, asthma, or both.

The costs for medications, hospital and emergency room admissions, and loss of business productivity are huge - approximately $18 billion annually.1 And, the impact on children is significant and ongoing - 14 million school days are missed annually due to allergies and asthma. These disorders are the number one reason for school absenteeism.2

Standard treatment for allergies and asthma consists of a variety of medications, and if you have one of these disorders, you know all about the meds. For allergies, typical medications include antihistamines and corticosteroid nasal sprays. You may also undergo more aggressive therapy - desensitization injections, known as immunotherapy, which are given regularly over a period of years.

For asthma, the gold standard of medication is inhaled corticosteroids. Asthma inhalers are now so much a part of daily life that they appear regularly as props on television serials and in film. In plot-driven, contrived "difficult" moments, lead actors - children and adults - pull out their inhalers and take a quick dose.

The challenge, of course, with allergy and asthma medication is there is no end-point. There is no cure. Asthma and allergies, for the most part, are lifelong conditions requiring lifelong medication. Might there be a better way, an alternative solution?

"Alternative" is the key word. Medical treatment is designed to combat symptoms, and is successful to a certain extent with allergies and asthma. Underlying causes are not addressed, however, and symptoms continue year after year. What else might be done?

Enter chiropractic care. Chiropractic health care, with its unique comprehensive approach, is able to offer positive benefit to a variety of conditions and ailments. In the case of allergies and asthma, these "hypersensitivity conditions" may respond well to therapy designed to normalize the body's flow of nerve signals. To use a metaphor, chiropractic treatment removes roadblocks to the body's natural healing abilities. Restoring these imbalances may help reduce such hypersensitivity reactions.

Chiropractic care frequently includes nutritional counseling, a critical component for people with allergies and asthma. Such individuals need as much physical optimization as possible, and nutritional awareness is key. A balanced food plan will help support all metabolic systems, reduce irritation caused by deficiencies, and provide fuel for exercise programs.

The benefits of chiropractic care are wide-ranging, and may be very useful in cases of hypersensitivity disorders such as allergies and asthma.
