Bad Press: Does Coconut Oil Really Promote Heart Disease?

The American Heart Association made waves last summer when it issued a report condemning coconut oil as a promoter of cardiovascular disease. Coconut oil devotees across the world were openly skeptical, but for the average American, the AHA’s position caused doubt and confusion. They had been told that coconut oil was a healthy alternative to processed or grain-based oils, and now the vaunted American Heart Association was saying just the opposite. Many swapped their naturally-sourced coconut oil for corn or canola oil, as the AHA suggested. After all, wouldn’t the premiere cardiac-health-promoting organization in the most medically advanced nation in the world know best?

Well … not necessarily.

A New Beginning

Welcome to Rollette Chiropractic Center's Information Station! If you're looking for a reliable, comprehensive source for the most up-to-date facts concerning chiropractic care and general wellness, then you've come to the right place. In particular, we want to keep you informed about issues that don't always get as much attention in the mainstream press.

If you're not familiar with the basic principles of chiropractic, we'll start from the beginning. Chiropractors are the only professionals trained specifically in correcting and maintaining the natural alignment of the spinal column.

Why is this important?

When the bones in your spine (vertebrae) move out of alignment, these positional changes can create pressure on the nerves that branch off the spinal cord, causing inflammation and irritation. This in turn interferes with the function of the spinal nerves. These misalignments are known as subluxations.

The alignment of your spine can be affected by numerous everyday physical, chemical, and emotional stressors. Even infants and toddlers are often affected by subluxations caused by the normal birth process, or the by the typical bumps and spills that accompany their unique stage of development. Over time, these subluxations often linger or even worsen, causing dysfunction in the nervous system.  Literally any bodily organ or function governed by the brain, spinal cord, and spinal nerves can become compromised by the inflammation and irritation that develops as a result of these subluxations.

The good news is that these subluxations are correctable, and that any non-degenerative changes in the bones of the spine or spinal nerves can be reversed with chiropractic care. Wellness packages can help you maintain your spinal health once corrective care is completed.

At Rollette Chiropractic Center, we hope to transform the health of the individual and the community in the most natural, effective, and non-invasive ways possible. A vital part of that mission involves keeping others informed about their full range of healthcare options.  We look forward to taking this wellness journey with all of our patients and readers, and welcome your questions and feedback.
