For the past few weeks, we have been talking about living your best year ever, through our four-part philosophy of “Think Right, Eat Right, Move Right, Live Right.” If you’ve read these articles, though, you probably noticed that I’m not just talking about one good year; I’m setting you up for success for the rest of your life. And if we’re doing it right, a longer life than we would have had otherwise.
Ultimately, “living right” comes down to taking an active role in managing your whole wellness, which has been the theme of my last few articles. If I have one core purpose as a healthcare professional, it’s to give you the keys to your own wellness and the knowledge to maintain it yourself for a lifetime.
As we head into a new school year, wellness is a big concern for parents. There are few things in the universe as efficient as a flu bug drifting through a classroom. So this week, I want to share my top wellness tips for keeping your kids healthy at school, and I will set it […]

Nutrition is more than just eating. Diet is more than just not eating. If you’ve been following my “Wellness Wednesdays” for the past few weeks, you know that I’m looking forward to dinner on Thursday night, when our Fundamental Foods and Friends Dinner welcomes Julianna Saitta of Mediterranean Meals. If it were just about eating […]
Hey, friend, it’s the first Wednesday of the month again, so I’ve been thinking about our next Fundamental Foods and Friends Dinner, which is just a week away – April 11. I look forward to this every month and I hope you do as well. This month’s dinner is absolutely one you don’t want to […]
No matter what age you are today, it’s crucial to understand that the choices you are making with your body today will significantly impact how well it will work when you are in your nineties. It can even determine whether you are still living at that age. Over the last couple of weeks, I have […]
During last week’s “Wellness Wednesday” I came down pretty hard on you. I didn’t mean to. I was just trying to help you get ready for summer clothes without feeling self-conscious about your body. I know how people get (especially in a beach town like Naples) when the weather gets warm. Still, I told you […]
As we head into another swimsuit season (at least here in Southwest Florida), it’s time to confront all the crazy weight-loss ideas that have been littering the checkout aisles and Facebook news feeds for weeks. I used to be shocked and appalled at the crazy things people do to lose weight, like cabbage-only or starvation. […]
As a chiropractor, I’m naturally tuned into the structural and movement aspects of wellness, but as a wellness coach, my mission is to bring a holistic approach to health, and that includes matters of diet and nutrition.
