I was asked on a podcast the other day what I thought the future of healthcare was going to look like. I said I was very optimistic that wellness was going to become a much bigger thing. People have started to use the phrase “take control of my health,” which I have never heard before. While this...

From a biochemical perspective, oxygen is important to both the quality and length of your life. Despite this, we don’t do much to maximize the oxygen we bring in to our bodies. When we sit in a slouched or hunched forward position, it limits the amount of room we have to breathe. This slight red...

Sometimes in life we are confronted with information that makes us doubt a lot of the older information we once trusted; information we have held close to our hearts as truth. Information that we got from people and sources that we were told to always trust, like our parents. Due to the people th...

In an online interview the other day, I was asked about my favorite quote. I used this quote in my book, “Pillars of Wellness.” It was said by Nietzsche “No one can build you the bridge on which you, and only you, must cross the river of life.” I like this quote because it is true and raw. The co...

I see a lot of women in their mid to late 20s who have just had babies, and they tell me they now pee a little when they laugh or move too quickly. This is completely avoidable with the proper exercises. The issue is that the muscular function and tone in the pelvic floor are too low. Building th...

Is this discussion like the old question; Are you out of shape? But it's rather how your body and muscles are toned. If you or someone you know has scoliosis, plantar fasciitis, carpal tunnel, or frozen shoulder, they often wonder how to fix it. All of these issues come from a tone problem. I def...

During the past few years, I have seen an increase in anxiety and stress in my patients. I have tried to develop a diplomatic way of saying this, but I can't, so here it is. People would be better off caring less about a lot of stuff. Not important things, but a lot of the other things that are j...

I have talked a lot about the notion that the word “love” is a verb. I'll give you an example from my own life… One of the small things I do everyday for my wife is make her a hot beverage in the morning. It is a small thing that takes five minutes, but I like knowing that when she gets up, it is...

I love seeing things that prove people are good. I was told about a blood drive by my office manager, the fabulous Racheal, so I made an appointment. However, I didn’t think I would have to fill out a bunch of paperwork the day of, so I didn’t do it ahead of time. While I was filling out the 54 h...

I am sure many of you wonder why I make such a big deal about psychology and talk about mental state so much. The reason is because of my study of neurology and biochemistry. Psychological stress does not just stay in your head. It goes all over the body and often ends up in the gut, where it wil...

In today's world, much of how we think life should be comes from social media. People talk about how they “crush the day" or get up at 4 am to make it all work. What is not always talked about is how we can do that. For instance, I have an entire team that helps me. In addition, my wife, who has ...

I keep seeing headlines about protecting yourself against various illnesses or what pharmaceuticals to take for this issue or that issue. For that reason, I decided to do a pillars check-up this week and figure out how to make yourself as healthy as possible.  First, I wanted to make sure that yo...
