Cheers to my Rolfing colleague Sandy Henningsgaard who recently posted about her experience working with NFL Running Back Adrian Peterson .

Sandy wrote: “Wayne and I have been working with NFL Running Back and MVP for the Minnesota Vikings for years. Peterson is the only running back to come back and last a full season after injuries from ACL and MCL torn ligaments, and who went on to (almost) break the record for the most yards in a season.

Adrian Peterson has agreed to be featured in an article for the Rolf Journal. And on November 7th, during the Vikings nationally televised Thursday Night Football game, the announcers casually mentioned that they had talked to Adrian before the game and he said that he was ready to go because of Rolfing.”

Awesome work Sandy!! Thank you for sharing this excellent story on just how effective Rolfing can be.  For more information on the benefits of Rolfing, visit my Denver City Rolfing website.

 

Ten Amazing Benefits of Kale

 

How-to-Plant-Kale-Home-Grown-Fun

 

I love chatting with my Denver City Rolfing clients about health foods, Kale is being called “the new beef”, “the queen of greens” and “a nutritional powerhouse.” Here are ten great benefits of adding more kale to your diet:
1. Kale is low in calorie, high in fiber and has zero fat. One cup of kale has only 36 calories, 5 grams of fiber and 0 grams of fat. It is great for aiding in digestion and elimination with its great fiber content. It’s also filled with so many nutrients, vitamins, folate and magnesium as well as those listed below.
2. Kale is high in iron. Per calorie, kale has more iron than beef. Iron is essential for good health, such as the formation of hemoglobin and enzymes, transporting oxygen to various parts of the body, cell growth, proper liver function and more.
3. Kale is high in Vitamin K. Eating a diet high in Vitamin K can help protect against various cancers. It is also necessary for a wide variety of bodily functions including normal bone health and the prevention of blood clotting. Also increased levels of vitamin K can help people suffering from Alzheimer’s disease.

4. Kale is filled with powerful antioxidants. Antioxidants, such as carotenoids and flavonoids help protect against various cancers.
5. Kale is a great anti-inflammatory food. One cup of kale is filled with 10% of the RDA of omega-3 fatty acids, which help, fight against arthritis, asthma and autoimmune disorders.
6. Kale is great for cardiovascular support. Eating more kale can help lower cholesterol levels.
