Keep in mind the evidence to back up these benefits varies, and some of it is largely anecdotal. Dark patches on your skin can be caused by too much pigment (melanin), which is triggered by hormones or other causes. Called melasma, this condition is believed to be treatable through the use of topical vitamin E.
Studies show that hyperpigmentation may be only moderately affected by using topical vitamin E oil. The most effective way to use vitamin E to treat hyperpigmentation is to pair it with vitamin C. Vitamin E is high in antioxidants, and it affects blood circulation. That might be why people notice a difference in the firmness and structure of their skin after topical use of vitamin E oil. A 2013 review of the literature tells us that vitamin E and other natural ingredients rich in antioxidants are generally accepted as a treatment for delaying wrinkles, also called photoaging. Some people swear by vitamin E as a treatment for acne scarring. However, studies to understand if vitamin E works for this purpose indicate it isn’t as effective as one might think. While vitamin E does promote circulation, it doesn’t appear to speed healing.
That means that using it for acne scarring might not give you the results you want. Topical vitamin E oil can be used to relieve chapped, dry lips. Since vitamin E promotes cell turnover and regeneration, using it on dry lips brings new cells to the surface faster. The thick and oily consistency of vitamin E oil can also prevent further irritation. Do you struggle with lower back pain, neck pain, or herniated discs?

because you are a self-healing, self-regulating organism controlled by your nervous system. Millions of instructions flow from your brain, down the spinal cord, out to every cell, tissue and organ in your body. Signals sent back to the brain confirm if your body is working right. Improper motion or position of the moving bones of the spine (called a Vertebral Subluxation) can interfere with this vital exchange by irritating nerves. Disturbed communication within the central nervous system causes abnormal function in the body. "A Healthy Nervous System = A Healthy Body" The chiropractor’s main purpose is to detect and correct those Vertebral Subluxations by improving normal positioning, movement, and function of the vertebrae of the spine. Specific spinal adjustments remove nerve interference thereby improving communication between your brain and all the other parts of your body. Our patients choose our office because they desire a natural approach to better health.
Indeed, our mission at Roelofsen Chiropractic is to repair, restore and maintain an optimum state of health through the natural methods of chiropractic care.
