It's funny looking back at some of the things I have written about cannabis and being in my current position. I remember thinking that maybe someday people will use this for pain. It's odd sitting here knowing that that day is today. We were able to get the most widely legal form of cannabis that...

Headaches come in a variety of severity and origins. The most severe is a migraine headache. I classify it as the most painful because we are the reason we get them. Migraines have an origin in the lack of oxygen to the brain. When the brain loses oxygen, the blood vessels contract to increase th...

I had someone come in a couple of days ago, and they were getting tired, edgy, a little snappy, and felt kinda bad. They couldn't figure it out and thought they might be sick or coming down with something. After testing them, they didn't test that badly. After testing, we talked for a bit since t...

I had a young man come in the other day, and his primary issue was that he had a significant internal rotation of his feet. He was pigeon-toed. The father told me how the other doctors had been looking at his feet and ankles and could not explain to anyone why the son had this issue, so they told...

I do not know if I have put out my list of lifting rules, so here are some of them. Muscles move in precise patterns or ranges of motion. Always ensure that you are following the range of motion strictly. Muscles move a joint, a single joint. If anything moves besides the one joint you're exercis...

Lots of people have asked about my thoughts on mammograms and breast care. First, if you have no idea if you have any family history of breast cancer or if you know people in your family who have died from breast cancer, get a genetic test to determine your level or risk. This can also be done on...

As I research and see things following a pattern, it is more and more apparent that the body was designed to heal itself. The research that I am doing, and is ongoing, shows that higher LDL cholesterol levels are due to a lack of physiological and chemical level needs. What I mean by that is that...

So, I am about to start a giant fight with people but let's talk about it. Calories in vs. calories out for fat and muscle levels is NOT all you have to worry about. Chemistry matters. Does the body respond to 2000 calories of lemonade the same way the body responds to 2000 calories of vodka? No,...

One of the most important mindset positions and struggles people go through is the balance between being content and complacent. It has developed into the saying that strives to be content but never complacent. This is a fine balancing act. On the one hand, you should be happy with what you have ...

I am seeing more anxiety and stress in my patients over the last few years. Yes, Covid is a thing, or was it a thing? Are we over that now with the Russia thing? I am not sure. On top of their normal lives, they worry. I have gone round and round trying to come up with a nice or soft way of sayin...

I get asked all the time what the best way to lift or what style of exercise people should not do is. For those who do not know, this is a big conversation in the exercise and health community. The real answer isn’t “CrossFit bad and my way good.” The real answer is highly dependent on your goals...

We use words daily, and I don’t know if we truly understand their meaning. For instance, it is impossible to be brave if you are not scared. Bravery is overcoming or doing something even though you are scared. Being scared is a prerequisite for being brave. Being peaceful can only come from a vio...
