The Enchantment of Autumn Your Body Will Thank You for Staying Outside
September is a fine month to live in New Jersey. The crowds are gone from the shore, which leaves more room for locals to enjoy the waves and sand. The shore is just as beautiful and the weather is just as pleasant, so for those of us who live close, it’s a real treat, especially on those late-season days that faintly echo the summer heat before true fall weather kicks in. The kids are back in school, which also helps mitigate the beach crowds. When I was young, I loved the first few days of school and seeing my friends again. Of course, the enchantment wore off after a week or so. At least there were fall sports to look forward to.
Young people have to spend more time indoors, and I’m sure many of us will follow suit as the weather gets chillier. For a while in September and October, we hit that sweet spot where it’s the perfect temperature for afternoon walks along the boardwalk or in the park. Later in the season, it’s easier to justify cozying up indoors.
“There’s still something enchanting about an afternoon walk bundled up in jackets and mittens, soaking in the beautiful autumn colors.”
As for us, our No. 1 focus is on our patients’ health, so we’d be remiss if we didn’t express our endorsement of outdoor activity. If you have the capacity, the cool weather feels refreshing as you work up a sweat jogging or cycling. If not, there’s still something enchanting about an afternoon walk bundled up in jackets and mittens, soaking in the beautiful autumn colors. Another way to feel better is to come in for our wellness services. We see an uptick of stay-at-home moms this season, because with the kids in school, they finally have some time for themselves. We love seeing those faces that we’ve missed all summer and hearing the stories of your family vacations and the trouble your children got into. That’s one of our favorite parts of this practice: When our customers come in for treatment, you can usually see on their faces how much they need it. Whether it’s acupuncture, neck and back pain relief, or K-Laser therapy, we want to give you a reprieve with whatever bothered you this summer.
As the weather gets cooler, we’ll gear up for Halloween. Every year, we see regular costumes put on over and under the requisite coats and jackets. As for me and mine, we’ll be bundled up inside watching the scary Halloween movies I loved as a teenager: “Nightmare on Elm Street,” “Friday the 13th,” etc. It’s not everyone’s cup of tea, but it’s been a traditional part of my holiday since I was younger. I hope you have a wonderful fall season. Remember, even when it’s chilly outside, there’s some real beauty to see. Stay active; your eyes and your health will thank you.
Have a wonderful fall!
– Dr. Marron

The Benefits of Seasonal Eating
The nutritional benefits of fruits and vegetables hardly need explaining. While the stock of protein, carbs, and fat seems to rise and fall at random, the value of fruits and veggies never wavers. These health staples, though, can put a dent in your wallet if you’re not making the right choices at the market. One way to feed your family healthy and delicious produce on the cheap is to eat seasonally. Not only will this save you money, but you will also vary your diet, support local farms, and put the freshest foods on your table. Ever wonder why tomatoes cost so much more in December than in July? The answer is simple: shipping distance. The less a tomato needs to travel to make it to your plate, the less it will cost. Transporting produce long distances is expensive because it needs to be protected and temperature-controlled. Eating seasonally means you’ll save a ton on fruits and veggies. Even better is to cut out the middleman entirely and buy directly from a supplier. In his exceptional cookbook, “Six Seasons: A New Way With Vegetables,” Joshua McFadden writes, “The best way to eat with the seasons is to frequent and support local farms, markets, and grocery stores that are doing good things.” Farmers markets have exploded in number and popularity recently, and the USDA website (ams.usda.gov) has a directory of markets that you can search for by ZIP code. Learning what’s in season at a given time might seem like a daunting task, but there are plenty of tools to help you. Again, the farmers market is your friend here. You can ask what’s in peak season
now and what to look forward to in the coming weeks. Apps like Farmstand will also let you know the freshest crops in your area and alert you to deals on produce. Even if you opt for a grocery store rather than farmers market, you can still save by eating seasonally. You’ll be shocked how much you save by buying what’s on sale. And guess which items are usually on sale? The ones that are in-season and abundant. Getting the nutritional benefits and great taste of fresh produce doesn’t need to cost an arm and a leg. Eat seasonally and locally, and the savings will pile up.
ARE YOU AWARE? How Many Americans Suffer From Chronic Pain?
How many Americans suffer from chronic pain? The American Academy of Pain Medicine claims it’s over 100 million, making it the most common major medical condition in the country. This statistic might surprise you, but it highlights the need for a National Pain Awareness Month. The American Chronic Pain Association, leading a coalition of health care professionals and consumer groups (including the NAACP), dedicated September to raising public awareness of issues related to pain and pain management. What does that mean for you? Luckily, there are ways for you to get involved. One easy way is to spread the word. If 1 in 3 Americans suffer from pain, that means it’s likely that a friend, family member, or even yourself suffer. Call local news and community leaders to ask them if they have plans to mark the month.
You can “like” ACPA on Facebook to stay updated on new developments regarding chronic pain, and be sure to like and share their posts to spread the word. Additionally, there is a link where you can donate to the nonprofit group. Their website, theacpa.org, is also a helpful resource. You can go there to find tips on dealing with chronic
pain and how to talk about it with friends and family. Instructional videos on the website offer information about medication safety and relaxation techniques.
If you struggle from chronic pain, stop in to Marron Wellness Center where we’ll be more than happy to help.

If you have chronic pain, stiffness, or fibromyalgia, you can really benefit from K-laser therapy. If you have question about how you can benefit from K-laser therapy, feel free to call our office or schedule a free consultation. Treatment of the Future: K-Lasers Aren’t What You See in ‘Star Wars’
As a child, you may have fantasized about a future with jetpacks, hoverboards, and lasers. Unfortunately, if it’s jetpacks and hoverboards you seek, we can’t help you. But if a laser used to accelerate the healing processes in your human body isn’t as impressive as the lasers you dreamed about in your youth, well, you’re a hard one to impress. K-Laser therapy has the power to do just that. These lasers can help you heal, relieve pain and inflammation, and generally help you enjoy a higher quality of life. It’s safe, noninvasive, and state of the art. HOW IT WORKS K-laser therapy uses a frequency of amplified light that penetrates substances without vaporizing or damaging them — the opposite of what you see in “Star Wars.” Its mild nature is why we call it “low-level” laser therapy. To use it as a tool to reduce pain, stiffness, and other discomforts, our chiropractor and physical therapist direct the laser at certain key points. It fosters blood flow and permits more efficient drainage of the substances that trigger inflammation in tissues, like lactic acid. The warming, circulation-boosting effect of laser therapy also helps relax tight muscles and relieve painful knots.
