I don’t know about you, but I love Halloween. It’s my favorite holiday. There’s something about the cooling weather, the turned leaves, and the excitement in the air that just makes me happy every time it rolls around. Although I am dreading the snow and cold that I know will come soon, Halloween has always been my favorite time of year. Pumpkins are out and ghost stories can be found everywhere. Besides, you can go out and find free candy if you’re younger (or have young children) and the day after Halloween, the candy that you’ve been craving for a month by now goes half price! Honestly, there doesn’t seem to be much better than being able to dress up and pretend to be something you’re not for a night, forget your responsibilities, and either get candy or give candy out to kids who you know are going to be ecstatic and sugar high for the next week at least.
While this is a wonderful time, we must also remember that not everything is great all at once. This is especially true of the candy that you either collect or are left with at the end of the night. It is always so tempting to eat as much of it as possible, but as we know that will likely make you sick. If you portion out your candy, at least, it will last longer. Now you may be asking, “Why are you telling me how to eat my candy? You fix backs.” This is true, but chiropractors can also give you diet tips and help you figure out what a good and balanced meal for you would be. This means that yes, we are qualified to tell you that you shouldn’t eat that fourth snickers bar, even if it is the fun size. We know there’s nothing fun about less candy for anyone but your dentist, but it will help you in the long run. While Halloween may bring out your inner child, it unfortunately won’t bring out your inner child’s metabolism and that’s where the problem may arise.
Come in to Wirth Chiropractic and see what we can do for you. We can help you with any back or neck pain, but we also may be able to help you see what damage eating too much candy can do. Don’t worry though, we won’t tell if you sneak a KitKat out of your kid’s bag.
