CBD could be the best solution for you.

Healthcare Associates of Florida, Inc. (HCA) in Coral Springs Florida is now marketing the only pharmaceutical-grade 99% pure cannabidiol (CBD) currently available - a rich full spectrum Cannabidiol oil that is packed with the nutrients from the hemp plant.  HCA’s mission is to offer users a safe, effective alternative to prescription painkillers, other toxic prescription drugs and over-the-counter drugs that contain harsh chemical compounds alien to nature’s perfect remedies. 

Extracting our cannabidiol (CBD) from the hemp plant is a costly process. Cannabinoids have two famous components, THC and CBD. Of which, the former has psychoactive properties which by law is illegal in many places if there is more than .03% of the THC component in the product. Thus, the legal CBD must be extracted in such a way that it contains less than .03% of THC. The CBD products offered by Healthcare Associates of Florida are non-psychoactive, and acceptable within all 50 states of the United States.

HCA's CBD Oil is a safe, effective alternative to prescription painkillers, other toxic prescription drugs and over-the-counter drugs that contain harsh chemical compounds alien to nature's perfect remedies. The marijuana plant has long been known to have medical benefits but it has remained illegal in many areas because of the psychoactive properties in THC which is one of its components. Now that the methodology has been developed to separate the CBD from the THC, the health benefits can now be made available without restriction.

CBD Oil has been shown to be very effective in treating a wide range of ailments.  Conditions responding favorably to CBD include diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis, cancer, epilepsy, antibiotic-resistant infections, alcoholism, PSTD, neurological disorders, alzheimers disease, depression, menstrual cramps, migraine headaches and related conditions.

How does CBD work in the body?  It is now understood that the human body has an Endocannabinoid system, which is why quality CBD has been shown to be an effective form of alternative treatment. The Endocannabinoid system (ECS) is a group of endogenous cannabinoid receptors located in the mammalian brain and throughout the central and peripheral nervous systems, consisting of neuromodulatory lipids and their receptors. CBD specifically interacts with the CB1 and CB2 receptors that send signals to wake up and strengthen the immune system naturally. The boost of the immune system can help the body fight off the bad cells that are weakening it in the first place.

To find out more about the health benefits of HCA CBD Oil products, contact the Healthcare Associates of Florida, Inc. corporate office at (954) 755-2644 or visit for more information and to order CBD Oil products.  You can also send a text HCACBD to the number 44222 for more complete information sent directly to your phone for review.

House Introduces Bill to Expand Chiropractic Access...Military Retirees Families

A bill introduced last week in the House of Representatives and supported by the American Chiropractic Association (ACA) would expand access to chiropractic services to military retirees, dependents and survivors through the Department of Defense TRICARE health program. The legislation (H.R. 4973), introduced by Rep. Mike Rogers (R-Ala.) and Rep. Dave Loebsack (D-Iowa), would not only enable those who currently receive chiropractic care to continue their treatment but would also establish, in the wake of the nationwide opioid crisis, an important non-drug option for pain management in the program. "Chiropractors have become valued members of the military health care team. Their non-drug, non-addictive and noninvasive approach to pain management has proven effective in helping members of the military to recover from injuries, manage chronic pain and enhance their readiness for duty," said ACA President David Herd, DC. "This bill would ensure that military retirees and military family members have access to the same quality care." Chiropractic services were first made available to active-duty military personnel following the enactment in 2000 of legislation to create a permanent chiropractic benefit within the Department of Defense health care system. As part of the pilot program before full implementation, retirees, dependents and survivors were also granted access to chiropractic services on a space-available basis. At the time, it was found that the benefit was valued within the TRICARE community. Today, chiropractic is available only to active-duty service members at more than 60 military treatment facilities in the United States, as well as bases in Germany and Japan. Chiropractors focus on disorders of the musculoskeletal system, most often treating complaints such as back pain, neck pain, pain in the joints of the arms or legs and headaches. Widely known for their expertise in spinal manipulation, chiropractors are also trained to recommend therapeutic and rehabilitative exercises, and to provide dietary and lifestyle counseling.

Jump For Your Adjustment!

Looking to increase athletic performance and possibly your vertical jump height? Give an adjustment a try! A small blinded trial was conducted recently in young female athletes who were suffering from ankle joint dysfunction to see if an adjustment to the joint could affect their vertical jump height. The ankle joint, more technically referred to as the talocrural joint, is the joint formed from the ends of the lower leg bones (tibia and fibula) and the top bone of the ankle, the talus. Half of the female athletes with ankle joint dysfunction received an adjustment to their ankle joint once a week for three weeks while the other half received a sham treatment once a week for three weeks. On average, those receiving the adjustment to their ankle joint saw an average 0.47 cm increase in their vertical jump as compared with the sham group. It’s important to recognize that adjustments provided by doctors of chiropractic can be delivered to and benefit more than just the joints of the spine. If you or someone you know is suffering from pain or dysfunction, or is simply looking to enhance their physical performance and overall health, give your local chiropractor a call today!

Obesity Linked to Chronic Back Pain

In a study published in the January 2013 issue of Spine, researchers in Norway have established a positive link between obesity and chronic lower back pain. The study was backed by census data of nearly twenty thousand men and women, aged 30-69 years and collected over a decade. Participants were divided into two groups; people without chronic back pain and those already experiencing chronic back pain. For the purposes of the study, 'chronic back pain' was defined as pain persisting for at least three months continuously over a year. The results, adjusted for age, physical activity levels, and other health factors indicated that the subjects who were 30 or more pounds overweight were 28 percent more likely to experience chronic lower back pain. The researchers pointed out that while the obesity may lead to the lower back pain, it is also possible that the lower back pain may lead to an increase in the subjects' obesity, due to decreased physical activity.
