    Have you had back pain in the past 30 days?

    At some point we all experience back pain. It is very common, but like all symptoms, it is best to pay attention to what your body is trying to tell you instead of trying to ignore it.

    Health Tips By Doctor Polucki, Planning To Fail

    “Failing to plan is planning to fail.” Benjamin Franklin

    In 2013 Americans spent two and a half times what most people in other countries did on healthcare. We took more drugs than anyone else on the planet and for all the money we wasted and drugs we took, we fell in the bottom third of health statistics.

    Health Tips By Doctor Polucki, Why You Need To Quit On Your Resolution

    This starts the second week of 2014. Has your resolution made it this far? Have you started on keeping it?

    While most of us make bold declarations about health and quality time with family every December 31, very few of us stick to our promises of upgrading our programs. Here is why: We have been sold a tool without any instructions on how to use it and even the best screwdriver doesn’t help you much when you need to pour a foundation on a new home.

    Health Tips By Doctor Polucki, Decompress From Daily Stress

    The daily stresses we face chemically, from thousands of substances that didn’t even exist for our grandparents and emotionally from social situations brought on by our disposable-microwave society can cause the same amount of internal damage as physical injury.

    While there are countless cover ups to enhance beauty, the secret to beautiful healthy skin is what you put in your body, not what you put on it. There are 15-20 layers of dead, water-proof skin that helps protect us from outside injury, including the metabolically toxic hormone disruptors found in most make-up and skin-care products.

    Rule #1 for great looking skin: If you can’t pronounce the ingredient, you probably should not put it on or in your body.

    Thyroid, Osteoporosis, Menopause, Arthritis And The Second Opinion

    Too often, a doctor’s visit results in a prescription based on a few symptoms, no lab work and the current marketing trend of the drug companies.

    It is no wonder that we, Americans spend 2 and a half times more on healthcare than any other country, consume 75% of the pharmaceuticals manufactured on the planet and rank 29th out of 30 countries in health statistics.

    Making prescription drugs more accessible through mandatory subsidies only benefits the drug and insurance companies but does nothing to reform healthcare in this country.

    Health Tips By Doctor Polucki, Natural Sports Enhancement

    Pushing the limits of speed, strength, endurance and flexibility has its rewards and can take its toll.

    While most people’s health problems are caused by too little exercise, athletes have a unique set of stressors that contribute to injuries and illnesses.

    Every sport has its own common injuries but more often than not there are early warning signs that can help you avoid an injury that could put an end to your favorite activity for you permanently.

    Are you constantly hungry or thirsty? Do you get even more hungry for carbohydrates (sweets, bread, pasta, cereal) after you have some to eat? Do you have to urinate more frequently than you used to?
