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...

After an earlier social media post, I realized I was using terms I have yet to define that will help with your muscle function knowledge. Muscles have 2 functions that are equally important but very different. Muscles have tone and strength. Strength is how hard a muscle can contract at any given...

As I said, one of my favorite philosophers is Frederich Nietzsche, and one of his quotes I find fitting for the time we are in now is, “Sometimes people don’t want to hear the truth because they don’t want their illusions destroyed.”  We have a lot of illusions going on now. Like the government ...

When you think about relaxing and luxury, many people think about a massage. While a massage can be very relaxing and part of any good luxury vacation, we should also view it therapeutically. For instance, after most deep tissue massages, you are instructed to “drink plenty of water,” but do you ...

I touched on how important small choices are to who we end up being yesterday, and I also wanted to touch on them for relationships. Over the last 15 years of doing what I do, I have watched people's relationships fall apart and end. I have also seen people fortify and rebuild their relationships...

I have not posted about chiropractic, and as someone that loves it as much as I do, I should. There are a lot of issues that only an adjustment can fix. My personal story with chiropractic started when I hurt my back in high school and could no longer walk. I saw everyone with a license to treat ...
