There you are having a perfect day; you feel good, the weather is comfortable and everything in Life just feels right. You are in your own world but then you start to notice trash that someone didn't put in a receptacle. Other people's actions start to annoy you and you think " How can they be so unaware to pollute." How much extra energy would it take for them to carry their trash until they found a proper trash can?

As you continue you notice a person struggling in their wheel chair to get up onto the curb. You want to help but you have a choice, will it be ok you think. Will I make myself late for my next appointment. Oh they look dirty and un-kept, I really don't want to get involved. People, when is it time to ......

I Slept Wrong!Oh I just slept wrong last night!
I always wonder why people think that when they wake in the morning with pain it is because they feel they slept incorrectly that night. The truth is, that very rarely that is the cause. Our body is always adapting to stress, so we are daily in and out of alignment which may or may not equate to pain, soreness, or discomfort. Why doesn’t this cause pain daily, is that the body shifts to correct one stress but when there are too many things causing stress the body can adapt no longer and that equals pain, soreness, and dysfunction. That is why chiropractic care is not about pain or symptom relief (even though that is what is done) , but about keeping your body functioning at its optimum levels. With ......

Well one way to beat the heat is to travel to a cooler climate. My wife has dreamed of snow skiing on her birthday which is in July. We all know that will never happen in the USA. Here we are in New Zealand where her dream has finally come true. Cool weather in July is nice for both of us. Have you ever wondered how the Southern Hemisphere celebrates Christmas in December when it can be hot down here. Well they celebrate Christmas July 25; it was funny for us to see Santa on the mountain with Christmas songs on their loud speakers. A wonderful place New Zealand, very friendly people and excellent food. I know what lays ahead for me when I return, but for now I am very happy. Be well all.

Are we young forever?
I was recently talking with my wife about ageing where she stated that when she was in her twenties she never thought about getting older. (I will be 67 y/o this year and she is younger than me.) I suppose someone out there can write a book on our thoughts as we grow older; our priorities through the ages as they change as we age. When we are in our twenties we have energy to conquer the world; we can take on all obstacles with a fever of enthusiasm and determination to not let anything get in our way.  
This period can go on for 20-30 years, but then you enter midlife, your 50’s to 60’s. Of course in the past this age was considered old, but that is no longer true. You have ...

The Choice to Not VaccinateHow would you react?
What if a reporter wrote a story or reported in the media about one of your core beliefs (religion,work,values,family) and the substance of their story was misleading or not even true. How would you feel; upset, angry, frustrated, miffed? You listen to a report and you wonder where they got their information. How could they be so off, especially because you have the actual facts with the research to back up your beliefs.
I am always educating people on the true value of chiropractic care, how it effects profound pain relief, and over all well being.  For years, I  thought that it was just my profession that was so misunderstood. But recently NPR did a story on corruption within the Red .........

Is a food sensitivity the same as a food allergy? If you happen to have food allergies it would be obvious because after eating a certain allergen food you would have some type of reaction to your body. It could manifest as a rash, a coughing attack or even constant sneezing for a period of time. Whereas having a sensitivity to certain types of food will cause inflammation in your body. If this goes on long enough you become more prone to injuries because the inflammation will cause swelling, weakness and irritation in your tissues. I have had patients with food sensitivities to: almonds, avocados, and broccoli just to name a few foods you would normally think there would not be any problem. I offer a nutritional consultation session using ......

Does it matter what the label states on a nutritional supplement? Why would a supplement cost a third more than another product that states the same ingredients, with the same ratio yet it may be less/more expensive. Well a Bentley and a Kia are both  automobiles, however the quality of one is superior to the other. It's the same with nutritional supplements; the only place I recommend my patients purchase their health vitamins and other products is from either me or a health food store like Whole Foods. One of the things I specialize in is developing a personalized supplement program for my patients.  Never purchase your products from Costco, CVS, Trader Joe's. These stores all carry some products that are good quality ......

Resolving those aches and painsIs a small ache and pain really because you slept wrong the night before?  Whenever our body has a symptom, there is always a reason.  Usually it's not because you slept wrong the night before.  STRESS, whether it's chemical, physical, or emotional, can cause our body to create symptoms that we have no idea why those symptoms are there.  More and more people seem to be internalizing their emotions, and not dealing with them in a healthy manner.  People that seem to be angry a lot might have headaches and/or knee pain, because the meridian that correlates to anger runs from our skull to our toes.  My work in Energetic Medicine handles these issues.  When you have an unknown symptom of aches and ............
