Gratitude is good for your health, so this month we want to help you keep your focus on the good things in life rather than getting mired down in holiday stress and sickness. Our featured products, monthly challenge, and massage spotlight all fit the theme of strengthening the body inside and out, allowing you to accentuate the positive each day.
Douglas Laboratories Ubiquinol-QH
Product of the Month
Ubiquinol-QH from Douglas Laboratories contains a form of Coenzyme Q10 that’s already optimized for ideal absorption and function within your body.
Cardiovascular health and resistance to oxidative stress
WHO NEEDS IT?
Ubiquinol is a reduced, active form of ubiquinone, commonly referred to as Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10). It functions as a potent antioxidant and is directly involved in up to 95% of your body’s cellular energy production. A deficiency of CoQ10 can decrease the aerobic function of every muscle in your body, including your heart.
Recent clinical studies indicate that the bodies of older adults gradually become less efficient at converting CoQ10 to ubiquinol, leaving them vulnerable to oxidative stress and muscle weakness. Douglas Laboratories created Ubiquinol-QH, a highly-soluble, biologically-reduced form of CoQ10 designed for optimal absorption, in response to this important research.
WHAT DO I GET WITH THE MONTHLY SPECIAL?
This November, a full month’s supply of Ubiquinol-QH is available for 15% off our regular price. Call (985) 345-9504 or stop by our office to place your order.
Detox Massage Therapy
Most of us enjoy indulging in some of our favorite foods this time of year—many of which are loaded with sugar, processed ingredients, and proteins that promote inflammation. The good news is that massage therapy can help the body flush out these harmful substances.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
Massage therapy stimulates the lymphatic system, which provides systemic detoxification.
AM I A CANDIDATE FOR DETOX MASSAGE?
The vast majority of individuals can safely receive detox massages, as long as they communicate clearly with their massage therapist regarding their health history and current conditions before beginning therapy.
HOW LONG DOES A DETOX MASSAGE TAKE?
Detox massage can be performed in either 30- or 60-minute sessions. You can choose what works best for you, or your massage therapist may offer a recommendation based on your individual circumstances.
30-Day Wall Push-Up Challenge
Challenge of the Month
Every November, Rollette Chiropractic Center sponsors the 30-Day Wall Push-Up Challenge.
WHAT DOES IT DO?
Strengthens the upper body, including the arms, shoulders, and chest
WHY WALL PUSH-UPS?
Wall push-ups are good for beginners or for people with certain medical conditions because they provide less resistance and reduce stress on your joints, including those in the spine. They offer a less aggressive but still effective form of strength training, and also engage the body’s core muscles to increase stability, balance, and stamina.
WHAT IF I’M TOO BUSY?
Good news! While the number of push-ups you perform increases daily, even the latest stages of the challenge should require no more than 2-3 minutes each day to complete.
HOW DO I PARTICIPATE?
This guide to our 30-Day Wall Push-Up Challenge offers a reference chart that indicates how many push-ups you need to do each day to complete the challenge, as well as step-by-step instructions to ensure you do them safely and effectively.
The 30-Day Wall Push-Up Challenge will strengthen your arms, shoulders, and chest without offering excessive resistance or putting too much stress on the spine and joints, making it an ideal exercise for people who need to take a less aggressive approach to upper-body training.

Silver Wings Colloidal Silver
Silver Wings Colloidal Silver is a high-quality blend of silver particles in ionized water.
Optimal immune function
WHY DO I NEED IT?
Colds and other respiratory infections tend to peak in the fall and winter months, resulting in many complications, sick days, and even hospitalizations. Typical treatments for these ailments can cause unpleasant or even dangerous side effects. Silver, however, is known to be a powerful anti-microbial (germ-killing) agent and generally causes no side effects unless taken in extremely high doses over a long period of time. Silver in the form of a concentrated colloid offers a safe, natural alternative that can help fight off these common seasonal illnesses before they become a direct threat to your health.
WHAT DOES IT COST?
A 4.1-ounce bottle of Silver Wings Colloidal Silver can be purchased at our Front Desk for only $12 + tax.
