Vitamin D has long been known as an essential nutrient, mainly for its critical role in calcium and phosphate homeostasis. Now, more recently, vitamin D is being shown to be a significant hormone involved in many endocrine functions including the induction of cell differentiation, inhibition of cell growth, immunomodulation, and finally, regulation of other hormonal systems
The Bonfire diet style is “plant-driven” (no, that doesn’t mean vegetarian – it means plant centric). This means regularly eating large vegetable salads – they are essential to eating and being healthy. They should be eaten with lunch AND dinner.
After moving to New England, I noticed that many Haddock recipes were made with bread crumbs, so we came up with a healthy alternative. Even kids love this fish dinner! Buy and make extra for lunch (just be careful at work – having fish at work will not make friends).
It is well known that those who don’t sleep on a healthy cycle suffer from health problems due to their schedule.

How have chiropractic patients had miraculous recoveries from such diverse conditions as infertility, high blood pressure, hearing loss, and enuresis (bed wetting)? By freeing the master system of the body – the nervous system – from interference, that’s how.
If your nerve system is not functioning fully free of interference, it is impossible to be truly healthy. The master control system for your body is your nerve system; consisting of the brain, spinal cord, and peripheral nerves. Chiropractic is dedicated to restoring the body’s ability to regulate and heal itself through normalized nervous system function. Rather than treating sickness with drugs or surgery, chiropractors examine and correct interference to the nervous system (called vertebral subluxation), ensuring that their patients have a healthy, functioning nerve supply to the body.
