June’s Supplement of the Month is Multivitamins! Come pick yours up today!
Jessica LeClair, D.C., is a recent graduate of Northwestern Health Sciences University. If she looks familiar, it’s probably because she’s been an intern at Langford and Karls Chiropractic for the past year!
Dr. LeClair grew up in Apple Valley, and attended Rosemount High School. Her pre-chiropractic coursework was completed at University of Wisconsin–Oshkosh, where she was a chemistry major with emphasis in biomolecular science. Her first experience with chiropractic care was when she was a high school student with incessant headaches; prior to this point she had been considering a career in teaching or nursing, but as soon as she was introduced to chiropractic care she was hooked.
In her spare time, Dr. LeClair enjoys rock climbing, reading, and spending time with her friends and family. Most recently, however, much of her time has been spent planning her August 2014 wedding.
Dr. LeClair loves meeting new patients of all ages and walks of life, and firmly believes in empowering them to take an active role in their care. She has a deep-seated passion for wellness and helping people feel their best, and is so excited to be a member of the Langford and Karls Chiropractic team! To set up your appointment with Dr. LeClair, give us a call at (651) 699-8610.
NATURALLY DYED EASTER EGGS
- Hard boiled eggs (as many as you want to color)
- 1/4 head red cabbage, chopped; 4 cups of water; 2 T of vinegar – makes blue
- Skins of 3 red onions and two handfuls of spinach; 2 cups of water; 3 T vinegar – makes a jade green
- 2 T paprika; 1 cup water; 2 T vinegar – makes a pale orange
- 2 T turmeric; 1 cup water; 2 T vinegar – makes a vibrant yellow
- 1 beet, peeled and chopped; 4 cups water; 2 T vinegar – makes a pretty pink
- Skins of 3 red onions; 2 cups water; 3 T vinegar – makes a purplish brown
I’ve heard you can do 1 cup frozen blueberries soaked in 1 cup of water (without vinegar) and get a grayish-blue if you want another color.
- With each colored ingredients in a separate pot, bring to a boil with the designated amount of water. Boil for about 15 minutes.
- Turn off the flame, remove the ingredients, and add designated amount of vinegar. Allow mixture to cool.
- Pour the colored waters into separate dying containers with a hard boiled egg in each (you can do more than one if you want some of the same color).
- Let your eggs soak in dye over night. We made them in the afternoon, and removed them from the dye the next morning and let air dry.
So for example for blue: Combine 1/4 head cabbage, chopped with 4 cups of water and bring to a boil. Boil for 15 minutes. Remove the cabbage from the water, and add 2 tablespoons of vinegar. Allow to cool before transferring to your dying container with the hard boiled egg. You would repeat this for each of the colors.
Any leftover ingredients can be put to use after! We love boiled beets in salads, spinach with eggs, and cabbage with a number of other things. Ingredients you do not eat, can be composted.
And since these eggs were dyed in food, feel free to use them for your favorite deviled egg recipe. Enjoy!

How often are you pressed for time at lunch so you run into a nearby fast-food restaurant. You eat quickly so you can get back to work and finish a report that’s due today. Is it surprising that you might feel sluggish, bloated, or experience reflux or heartburn? Eating meals with a high fat or high carbohydrate content while under stress is a recipe for digestive system meltdown! (Standard Process)
With the holidays coming up it is likely that most of us will be indulging in large meals that are full of rich foods loaded with fats and carbs. The amount of food consumed at a Thanksgiving meal is typically more than we would normally eat in one sitting; and if you have a large family like I do then you may be eating quickly to ensure you get to at least sample everything that is served before it is all gone! This leaves you feeling bloated and sluggish; you may experience heartburn gas, burping, and maybe even constipation or diarrhea.
Avoid these symptoms by taking 2 tablets of Zypan before you eat your holiday meal! Share it with your family and friends!
You can purchase a bottle of 90 tablets at Langford Chiropractic clinic for $13.00. Do not use this product if you suffer from ulcers or ulcerative colitis.
Our digestion is slowed by:
* Poor Food Choices – The Standard American Diet is chock full of foods that slow digestion, which can lead to heartburn and indigestion.
* Natural lack of enzymes or when our enzymes aren’t working properly: As we age, our ability to digest protein, fats, and carbs decreases
* Not taking enough time to chew your foods properly: Eating quickly can lead to inadequate chewing. Foods that aren’t chewed properly can be drier, which puts more stress on the esophagus
* Emotional and physical stress
