One of My Most Valuable Tools

I look for, and help correct, spinal problems. Why the spine? The spine houses the spinal cord and allows branches of the nerves to get out to every organ, tissue, and cell in the body. Spinal issues can disrupt these nerves, altering the brain’s ability to communicate with, and properly control, the vital bodily functions…

Turning Fantasy Into Reality

What we do, what we have, and what we experience in our day-to-day lives is reality. As humans, we have an incredible ability to create images, conjure up scenarios, and think about things that have not even happened. This makes us unique in the animal kingdom, as deer, fish, and worms do not fantasize about…

It’s Never Just One Thing

At 212 degrees, water boils. Boiling water produces steam. That steam can power a train. At 211 degrees, water is very hot, but not boiling. A good question to ask is what is so special about that one degree? What is it about that 212th degree that is so special? So powerful? So different from…

I remember weeding flower beds in our yard growing up. My mother would give us that little tool that looks similar to a screwdriver, except the metal end is shaped more like a triangle with two teeth-like points on the end. She would send us out, reminding us, “Make sure you get the roots!” This…

Honor ALL Emotions

Humans are very emotional beings. The vast range of emotions we are able to experience is a big part of why the human experience is so deep and powerful. Emotions come and go…we have ups, and we have downs. It appears that these emotions control us. And they can. But the truth is we can…

My Take On Some Big Issues

There are many debates within the scientific and healthcare communities when it comes to causes of, and contributors to, the rapid rise in chronic illness. In an effort to explain the boom in diabetes, asthma, allergies, auto-immune diseases, heart disease, cancers, autism, learning disabilities, etc., it is logical to look at what in our environment…
