How To Leave Bloating, Extra Weight, and Horrible Sleep in 2017

How To Leave Bloating, Extra Weight, and Horrible Sleep in 2017

This is 99 years old. I’ve been practicing as a chiropractor more than eight years now and treating generations of families. What a gift to witness how people age. Our genetics load the gun, our lifestyle pulls the trigger. The magical age where people start to notice that their bodies hurt and fall apart seems to be around 39 or 40. Before that, youth is on your side, lifestyle be damned. 😅 I love this photo not just for the beautiful yoga expert who is dancing on TV but what ‘good 99’ looks like. What are your goals for this brand new year? Good 40 or bad 40? Good 50 or bad 50? Good 80 or bad 80? Energy, peace, connection, and growth or endlessly visiting...

How I Lost The Baby Weight Without Trying

How I Lost The Baby Weight Without Trying Happy New Years, Friends! I hope this email finds you well:  hopeful and in good spirits after the holidays.

On A Very Special Episode of HBO’s Ballers:  Killing Pain with Pain Killers

I’ve recently emerged from living under a rock and got expanded cable.  Blame it on having a baby and actually being home!  We didn’t even have a remote control until recently (feel free to judge). At the recommendation of my father who knows I work in sports, the HBO series, Ballers, was at the very top of his ‘catch up with living in 2016’ list.  And so I did!  After binge watching all of Season 1 and just getting into Season 2 I can say a few things about my addiction to this show: Given that my patients include elite professional athletes from the NFL, NBA, Horse racing, etc., the show is so real it’s almost eerie instead of entertaining. Ballers is based here in...

‘Ain’t Nobody Got Time For That Crispy Coconut Chicken Fingers’ and Your Health

Do you feel like you don’t have enough time to make a healthy home cooked meal? (Like me). Are you always on the go trying to find time to sit down and eat a quick bite of whatever you can get your hands on? (Like me). Well you are not the only one! This trend has unfortunately become an epidemic in America today. We’ve all adapted to a fast paced lifestyle and are taking less time for ourselves and our personal wellness.  Work, kids, spouse, errands, repeat.   We are trained from a young age that it is okay to scarf down a quick meal like fast food or sandwich while driving in our cars.  It’s the ‘grab & go’ lifestyle.  Sound like you?...
