Are You Missing This Critical Key To Sustainable Wellness?

Last week, I made the claim that attitude is the first wellness. In a nutshell, I proposed that, unless we are willing to take responsibility for our own choices and change the behaviors that have been impacting our wellness in a negative way, our health will deteriorate over time. Your willingness to change is the […]

A Simple Plan To Beat Brain Fog

Now that we are past the holidays, I want to get back to our discussion about brain health. I was reminded recently of a patient I treated years ago who complained of brain fog. Let’s call her Connie. Connie, Interrupted Connie was in her 50s when she first came in. She was elegant, well-educated, and […]

Christmas And The Healthy Brain

The holidays are in full swing now and my prayer is that you are enjoying them in good health and joy. As 2018 winds to a close and we step into 2019, I’ve been thinking a lot about your brain. After all, your brain is the hub of all wellness – physical, mental, emotional, spiritual, […]

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. I feel like I’m being surrounded by resources to help me tackle this important issue. As a chiropractor, it’s natural for me to emphasize the brain […]

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 Meditation Really Help You Improve Your Health?

One topic that I frequently address here on “Wellness Wednesday” is stress management. Unmanaged stress is the root cause of up to 70 percent of common medical problems. Consider a short list of common health problems that are directly associated with stress: Insomnia Headaches Difficulty focusing Neck and back pain Acid reflux Ulcers Depression Surpassed […]

It’s Not What You Think: Introduction To Meditation

I’m really excited about the next couple of weeks of “Wellness Wednesday,” because we’re going to kick over some long-established, wrong ideas. In doing so, I believe we’re going to open you up to good health in a way you might never have expected. One of the guiding principles of my practice is that wellness […]

The Holidays Can Be Good For Your Wellness

Here on “Wellness Wednesdays,” we talk about the things we can do for our bodies to maintain (or achieve) optimum health. Most of the time, we talk about nutrition, diet, and lifestyle issues. But wellness is a diamond with many facets. I talk to people almost every day who naturally associate the winter holidays with […]

Is Your Heart Ready For The Holidays?

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas…even here in Southwest Florida, where most of us celebrate Christmas in shorts and t-shirts. I appreciate the effort people make around here to recreate the holiday experience they had when they lived up north — with colored lights and digital icicles and miles of garland and ribbon. […]

The False Facebook Face: How Hiding Your Real Self Can Make You Sick

Several months ago, a patient whom I’ll call “Bruce” came in for a regular adjustment. I’ve known Bruce professionally for a few years. He is gregarious, quick with a joke or a snarky comment, and easy to talk to. His Facebook page is full of pictures of his friends, his kids, and his grandkids. He had […]

Protecting Your Health By Fighting Loneliness

On last week’s “Wellness Wednesday,” we introduced a topic that surprised some of our readers. As I’ve often said here, even though my diploma says, “chiropractor,” my work with patients extends beyond the spine and nervous system. We take a holistic view of wellness that includes nutrition, movement, hydration, sleep, and mental, emotional, and spiritual […]
