Where did you grow up?

Grew up in Munich Germany!

We know you were very fond of you deceased husband Gus.  Can you share a funny story about him?

The funniest story of my late husband was when his return from a long business trip to Japan where he bought several suits! One of them he wore on his trip home and to my chagrin upon picking him up at the Frankfurt airport realized with horror the suit was fire engine red! You see on one of his marine corps duties to Africa he became ill with malaria which rendered him color blind! Gus thought he purchased a brown suite and the sweet Japanese Taylor would not dare disagree with this foreigner upon being asked if the material was brown! The proper way to inquire would have been: please show me your brown material! But my ugly American was not yet savvy enough to know that! He was the laughing stock at the Frankfurt airport!

When and where did you get married?

I got married in Lancaster, Pennsylvania in 1961 while my husband Gus was still studying languages at Syracuse university in Syracuse NY.

A lot of people do not know you are an RN. Tell us about that.

I was an RN at the Münchner Universitätsklinik assisting an ENT surgeon until I got married in June of 1961.

What is your favorite dish to make?  Would you mind sharing the recipe?

I like to cook and my families favorite dish is Rouladen accompanied by potato dumplings and sweet/sour red cabbage! Ingredients:1/4" thick sliced 4-5" wide and approx. 8" long beef slices, small shallots or white onions, cherry tomatoes, Cornichons, about 1/4 piece of bacon,Dijon mustard, salt & pepper.

Slightly pound the meat, spread it with mustard, salt and pepper and stuff it with a piece of bacon, onion/shallot, tomato and 1 Cornichon, roll it up, fasten it with a toothpick or turkey pin and brown in hot oil, sprinkle with flour add vegetable broth to cover the steak rolls and finish baking at 350 for about 1 hour! Periodically turn and baste the steak rolls!

Serve with dumplings and red cabbage! This is also good with Spätzle in place of potatoes! You can purchase red cabbage and Spätzle at:

Choosing the correct pillow...

Correcting your sleeping position can make huge improvements in your neck and back health. There are three key essentials – sleep on a proper mattress, make sure you sleep on your side or back and not your stomach, and make sure your head is properly supported at the right height with the right pillow.The goal to a sound sleep is ‘Spinal Alignment’. Because you sleep on your back, side, or both, the pillow we recommend was created to work for each sleeping position. The ergonomic design offers correct support and stability in sleeping posture. The result is a more sound sleep and less tendency to wake with pain, stiffness and many of the symptoms resulting from lack of support. It is therapy while you sleep!  Call our office today for a FREE pillow analysis.

 

Time for a FREE Massage!

During the month of May refer a new Chiropractic patient to Dr. Taschler and after their second visit receive a FREE 25 minute massage. We accept most health insurance.  As always thank you for trusting us with your healthcare and referring us your friends and family.

Study Findings Show Spinal Manipulation Therapy Effective in Treating Lower Back

The Spine Journal (2018) has just published a study that points to spinal manipulation therapy being the most effective way to treat lower back pain when compared with other methods. The effectiveness and safety of some different mobilization and manipulation therapies were examined. It was concluded definitively that spinal manipulation produces a much more significant effect on the lower back than a mobilization option. Spinal manipulation therapy can be applied appropriately by a Doctor of Chiropractic. Key findings were:

  • 57 percent of patients that took part in the study experienced effective relief of chronic pain occurring in the lower back. 78 percent of the same patients also experienced a reduction in disability. This happened when spinal manipulation therapy was compared to other treatments.
  • When comparing spinal manipulation to the use of physical therapy, 79 percent of these patients reported that spinal manipulation was most effective at relieving symptoms of both pain and disability.
  • It is worth noting here that both mobilization and manipulation therapies tested in this study are considered safe to use as treatments. 

Back pain is more common than you think. In the U.S. alone, 84 percent of the population suffers from some sort of back pain. Within this percentage, roughly 23 percent experience back pain that is chronic, and half again are actually disabled by this severe pain. What are you waiting for? Contact your local chiropractor today and start working with them to find relief from your chronic back pain.

Listening to Your Body – When do You Need a Break?

There is such a thing as too much of a good thing. You might see exercise as a great addition to your lifestyle, but you need breaks from your training, too.  Noam Tamir of TS Fitness New York City explains that your body goes through trauma when you exercise.  So how do you know when to take a break?

  • You're constantly sore: delayed onset muscle soreness, or DOMS, is normal. However, you shouldn't feel this all the time. Allow 24-48 hours in between each workout session.
  • You're always tired: moodiness and tiredness are signs of working out too much. This is because cortisol is produced by exercise. Too much of this can take a toll on your mental health.
  • You have an abnormal heart rate: check your heart rate regularly. If your resting heart rate is higher than average, then it's not ready for your next workout session yet.
  • You're always stiff: if you continue to be stiff long after a workout, your body is going to start changing the way it moves naturally. This can become permanent and potentially cause injury.
  • You've got dark yellow pee: looking at the color of your pee is the easiest way to figure out if you're dehydrated or not. The darker your pee, the more water you need to drink. 

Growing Attuned to Your Body for Optimum Health
Because you actually create micro-tears in your muscles when you exercise, they need time to repair, which will help them grow stronger.  The more you exercise, the more you strain your body. If you're not giving your body the breaks it needs, you could be doing more harm than good.  Take a day of rest between workouts and you’ll be stronger, fitter, and happier than ever!

Over 40 and Lift Weights? Eat More Protein
The British Journal of Sports Medicine has published a review that definitively points to protein as the building block of more muscle. According to this comprehensive review, people who want to be physically stronger should lift weights and eat more protein. This is especially true for people who are over 40. However, there is a caution in the review, explaining that there is a limit to the benefits that protein has. Through the review, they concluded that any protein works on a similar level of effectiveness. By studying 49 past experiments that reviewed different types of protein in both men's and women's diet correlating with their weightlifting, they concluded that protein plays a big part in building muscle. It was found that men and women who ate protein while weight training developed muscles that were larger and stronger. The statistical results were as follows: 10 percent for strength and 25 percent for muscle mass. The researchers also calculated precisely how much protein intake was needed on a daily basis to achieve these results. The answer was 1.6 grams of protein per kilogram that you weigh. Beyond this specific measurement, more protein did not equal more muscle. However, it is worth noting that this number required for daily protein intake is considerably higher than the regular federal recommendations of 56 grams a day for men and 46 grams for women. While there are still more studies to be done on the correlation between weightlifting and protein intake, it's safe to say that eating a balanced diet including protein will help you gain muscle.
