Simple Lifestyle Habits That Protect Your Brain Health

For months now, I have been sounding the alarm about brain health, dementia, and Alzheimer’s Disease. I feel like I am standing at the crest of a hill, watching as legions of people march toward a cliff that is crumbling away, the closer they get. That cliff is chronic disease, chronic pain, dementia, and limited […]

Medical Science Proves It: Small Lifestyle Adjustments Can Save Your Health

I appreciate a lot of the medical research that goes on in this country. I don’t necessarily agree with what they decide to do with that information (namely, producing more chemicals to treat disease), but I am glad they are seeking out answers. Sometimes, what they find is instructive for us to make lifestyle changes. […]

Healthy Brain How-To: Know The Risk Factors of Dementia

 Protecting your brain sounds like something football players would be concerned with. Every few years, the NFL makes updates to the design of their helmets, based on the latest research, to reduce the risk of concussion or brain injury. It’s a good idea, but it doesn’t help the rest of us much. I don’t suggest […]

Eat Your Way To Brain Health

Over the last few weeks, we’ve been looking at ways to keep your brain healthy, especially as we move into our 50s, 60s, 70s, and 80s. I hope you’ve been enjoying it as much as I have. For me personally, now that I’ve crossed into my 50s, nourishing my brain has become as much a […]

Simple But Not Easy: Preventing Alzheimer’s Disease

Over the last few weeks, several things have worked together to focus my attention on brain health. First, there was a book, then a conversation, then a phone call.

Meet Glutathione: The Antioxidant Superpower

The heartbeat of my practice is helping people experience and live in wellness in every part of their lives. Of course, wellness manifests itself in many ways, and while my license says I’m a chiropractor, I recognize that living our best life may start with an aligned spine, but it doesn’t end there. In fact, […]

Understanding Dementia 2: Giving Care To The Caregiver

If you haven’t been here on “Wellness Wednesday” with us the last two weeks, I want to catch you up on what’s happened, because if you have a family member or loved one at any stage of dementia (or you want to do what you can to prevent it in your own life), I believe […]

Can Your Leg Day Exercises Make You…Smarter?

If there’s one phrase that sends even the most dedicated bodybuilders away screaming, it’s “leg day.” Whether you’re doing crunches or squats or the wall sitting exercise, leg workouts are usually associated with pain. Not a week goes by that someone doesn’t post a funny meme on Facebook about the torture associated with leg day. […]

Fighting Alzheimer’s Disease…Naturally

It’s been a wild week since my last “Wellness Wednesday.” Just when I thought my summer couldn’t get any crazier, along comes Irma. If you’re here in Naples with me, I pray that this article finds you safe and well (and maybe even air conditioned). Hurricane prep is just part and parcel of living in […]

On “Wellness Wednesday,” we typically focus on the “Eat Right” portion of our mission: “Move Right, Eat Right, Think Right, Live Right.” But there’s more to wellness than just eating right. There are some lifestyle choices we can make that also contribute to our overall health. Growing Well, Not Old What are the characteristics you […]

B Is For Brain: Fight Dementia With Foods Rich In B-Complex Vitamins

I suppose it should come as no surprise, after living most of my life in Southwest Florida: a large percentage of my patients are over 50 years old. With a demographic like that, there are certain health challenges I’m going to see more often than chiropractors in most other areas. One of those challenges is […]
