Pick up any vitamin bottle in your house. Do you know where the ingredients came from?

Recognizing ingredients is crucial when it comes to your supplements. Make sure they are derived from a natural source and that you are taking a food-based - not synthetic - vitamin that your body will be able to absorb correctly.

Not only are ingredients important, but where you are purchasing them from matters too.
Knock-offs of vitamins and supplements have become a common issue when ordering from online retailers such as Amazon.

The easy route isn’t always the best route, especially when it comes to your health, but that doesn’t mean taking care of your body is hard!

We take the time to research trusted brands and curate our inventory to fit the needs of our patients. We make sure the ingredients are grown, harvested, and packaged using trusted practices.

Furthermore, making sure the supplements are high in bioavailability, (meaning it has a high percentage of traveling through your blood vessels and reaching the site in your body it was administered for), is an important factor when choosing the brands.

Be sure to ask us at your next appointment about our online supplement store and how we can curate a plan to fit your needs.

Ingredients matter.
Synthetics, dyes, and sugars don’t belong in your vitamins & supplements.

Many big box stores add fillers to the vitamins they sell, which means that your body won’t know how to process or absorb them. In short, you aren’t receiving the nutrients you think you are.
Colors are added to make the capsules more attractive. These show up as cheap, sugary dyes in our children's gummies or vitamins. It is very difficult for your body to detoxify dyes, especially if you don’t have the genes necessary for the process.

Our bodies can naturally filter, which is why it is okay to have “bad” things in moderation. Your body is built to filter the bad stuff out. The problems arise when there is overconsumption of these “bad” things and stress. These factors inhibit the body’s natural ability to detoxify.

Purchasing your supplements from a trusted source ensures they are made with high-quality, food-based ingredients. But how do you know who to buy from?

We’ve got you covered.

Bridges offers supplements with the best ingredients nature has to offer! We’ve taken the time to research & curate a diverse online store, so you can purchase with peace of mind. We wouldn’t recommend anything that we wouldn’t use ourselves.

As you may already know, we are officially in our new space.

We love it already, and we definitely feel the energy around it being the right spot for our intended vision.

As we continue settle in, here's what you should know about your commute to your appointments:

-Until we are able to install new signage after some building updates, you may see that the building is marked as Pearl Insurance - they have moved and we are now in the space so you're in the right place! We do have some Bridges signage as well that you'll notice as you walk from your car to the front door.

-Some GPS apps might take you down the street depending which direction you are coming from. If this is happening for you, we find that it's helpful to use the address 2599 Evans City Rd instead of our actual physical address listed on our site and social.

Thank you for your patience as we continue to settle in and are excited to have you come alongside on the journey of our business future and growth in this new location.

Pain is a danger signal and we should always be listening to our bodies.
But what happens when the pain becomes chronic? We can’t take ourselves out of it as easily, finding fear and stress around every corner.

Think of it like this -> when you touch a hot burner, your brain says stop! Chronic anxiety roots itself in your body. When you choose to say “that is a fearful thought, but I am safe right now”, you are telling your brain to turn off the danger signal.

The value of telling your brain that you are safe is huge. Mindfulness brings a sense of safety.

Did you know they are starting to document the reversal of chronic pain using mindfulness techniques? When you choose to turn those thoughts around with a moment of mindfulness, you can return to your day with a new outlook.

Acupuncture helps to reorganize Qi so the body can realize that it is, in fact, safe.

Next time you find yourself in a moment of pain, anxiety or stress, remind yourself that yes, this sucks and it hurts, but “I am strong and I will get through this.” (or another positive “I am ______” statement)

How often do you catch yourself and are remembering to take a breath?

Do it now. Close your eyes and take three deep breaths.
Bring yourself to the present moment.
How do you feel?

Overwhelmed? Stressed? In pain? Worried?
Go where the sensations are - physically and emotionally.

Bringing attention to these emotions will often help them dissipate and you will realize that they don’t hold as much space as you previously thought they did.

Feeling better? We hope so.
