Are you sitting yourself to an early, fat, death?

As a chiropractor, I’ve known for years that sitting was harder on our low backs than standing.  Every day I tell people that sitting puts about twice as much force and pressure on our backs as standing. As an onsite wellness provider, it’s important for me to be able to assess an employee’s work environment, […]

How to Make the Best Cup of Coffee EVER!

I am not a fan of our Keurig. At first it was cool to have all the different flavors and to be able to make just one cup. We bought the tray to put underneath to store the K-cups.  We bought the counter-top lazy-susan, and bought all sorts of different flavors – we bought, we […]

Purpose-Driven Chiropractic

Chiropractic Orientation.001

Please take a few minutes (like 6) to watch this video on the purpose of chiropractic. The vast majority of the public considers the chiropractor to be the “go to” guy or gal to visit if you injure your back, or neck.

Years ago, my friend, Doug Hughes and his wife went to California to view a taping of the Price is Right.  Doug’s wife was a HUGE fan of Bob Barker and the show. The cool thing was, and I predict not too many people are aware of the fact that Bob Barker holds a black […]

It pains me to hear about, or see on Facebook, that a child is suffering from some sort of significant health problem.  It’s not uncommon for children to suffer a variety of health problems that rob the entire family of peace and serenity…..ear infections, colic, allergies, autism, ADHD, nightmares…. The list is endless. As a purpose-driven […]

3D Small People - Watering Of The Germ

Leadership coach, John Barrett, says, ”It’s difficult, if not impossible, for leaders to inspire others to achieve without having a high level of achievement themselves.” John C. Maxwell, says, “Leaders must be close enough to relate to others, but far enough ahead to motivate them.” The word doctor literally means teacher, and if I am […]

Spinach Florentine Burger Recipe

Bloomingfoods, our local food co-op, serves these occasionally on their food bar.  I’m not typically a fan of cooked spinach, but these are incredible, and every time they are served, I eat them for several meals. The co-op isn’t really free with their recipes – which I don’t really understand, since I would buy the […]

I Challenge the Notion of a Food Addiction

Is there really such a thing as a Food Addiction? I know from my academic studies of addiction that there are basically 5 addictions: 1) Drugs and alcohol, 2) Sex, 3) Gambling, 4) Work, and 5) Food. Here’s where I might be nit-picky, but I’m trying to make a point: People who are food addicts […]
