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 […]

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. […]

Let’s Get Back To The Fundamental

People sometimes ask me why I named my practice Fundamental Health Solutions. When you’re thinking about a name for a business, you want to capture the core values that underpin the whole operation. For me, that was getting people back to the basics of wellness. I’ve been practicing for over 25 years now (I can […]

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, […]

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 […]

Simple Tips For Managing Headaches

I hope you’ve been drinking plenty of water and eating plenty of water-rich foods since last week’s “Wellness Wednesday.” If you missed it, we talked about delicious summer-friendly foods that can help you keep hydrated during the blast-furnace months of a Florida summer.

Beat The Heat: Tasty Ways to Stay Hydrated This Summer

As we head into the hottest part of summer here in Southwest Florida, I’ve been thinking a lot about staying hydrated. I’m not talking about the 15-minute hydration that happens every afternoon around 4:00 if you happen to be standing outside. I mean the act of intentionally putting water into your body, usually through the […]

Diseases The Mediterranean Diet Can Treat Or Prevent

Among the thousands of diet options that line the shelves at Barnes and Noble, few are as effective (and none are as ancient) as the Mediterranean Diet. Birthed in Old Testament times along the eastern shores of the Mediterranean Sea, this is how people have eaten in that part of the world for thousands of […]

What Makes The Mediterranean Diet So Powerful

Last week, I presented a challenge for you to think about: are you feeding your body in a way that promotes health and wellness, or disease? Specifically, I challenged the way we eat here in America. No matter what age you are today, it’s crucial to understand that the choices you make with your body […]

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. There is something about stepping away from the daily routines of life and experiencing something fresh and new that excites me. It’s easy to lose yourself […]

Is Your Food Promoting Wellness…Or Sickness?

If there’s one comment I hear more than any other from my readers, it’s “for a chiropractor, you sure write a lot about diet and gut health.” There’s a reason for that. More Than Wellness…Wholeness As I often share here on “Wellness Wednesdays,” wellness is not just a well-aligned spine. Your bones, nervous system, organs, […]
