One Small Adjustment To Get You Ready For Swimsuit Season

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. […]

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 […]

What The Rest of the World Can Teach Us About Healthy Eating

I don’t know about you, but I love to travel. Some of my most-cherished life memories are set in far-away places. Costa Rica is a personal favorite of mine.

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

Duh…Why Didn’t We Think Of This Sooner?

Have you seen this on Facebook recently? It’s from a grocery store in Ohio, but I’d to see the grocery stores in Florida move this direction. Publix? Winn Dixie? Where are you? Whole Foods? Trader Joe’s? How are you not leading the way with this? This is exactly the kind of thing we should be expecting from […]

If I were to go downtown and hustle heroine to people that walked past me, someone would eventually call the police and they would lock me up. Rightly so. No argument with that. Why? Heroine is an overwhelmingly addictive neurotoxin that would eventually eat your brain. That’s not news. However, right now, in my town […]
