Diet Mistakes Corrected By The Mediterranean Diet

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 […]

Pros and Cons of the Ketogenic Diet

Some diet plans work. Others are dangerous. Some are just stupid. Last week, we began talking about the Keto (or ketogenic) diet.

Introduction to Ketosis: A Map To Get There

Sometimes, when you’re a chiropractor, you touch a nerve. So it seems that last week’s post about emotional detox impacted some people in the ways I hope all my articles would. As hard as it was to say some of the things I had to say, the comments I got afterward would suggest that it […]

20 Benefits of Fasting: Physical, Mental, and Spiritual

America is getting fat. Maybe you’ve noticed it happening gradually around you…or to you.

Is The Mediterranean Diet An Effective Weight Loss Tool?

We have a lot of ground to cover today, so if you’re just joining us, it might help to take a few minutes to […]

Is Your Food Promoting Wellness…Or Sickness?

“These are the times that try men’s souls.” — Thomas Payne As I am sitting to write, the news is on in the background, and Hurricane Irma is bearing down on the Caribbean. It wasn’t that many days ago I was watching Texas with the empathy of a survivor, feeling like we had dodged a […]

Understanding Intermittent Fasting and Weight Management

Now that we’ve crossed over Memorial Day weekend and graduation season, it’s time to take a deep breath and enjoy a little summer R&R. I actually got to take a few days away with my daughter this week, which is as enjoyable as it is rare. I hope you’re able to take a little time […]

A Battle Plan For Winning The War In Your Body

On last week’s “Wellness Wednesday,” we started looking at the body as a kind of corporation, where the lungs, kidneys, and gut perform daily operations under the direction of the brain’s management team.
