The Story of the Deaf Janitor
Over one hundred years ago in 1895, in a small town in Iowa called Davenport, a tremendous discovery was made. It was at this time that a man by the name of Daniel David Palmer discovered the science, art, and philosophy of chiropractic. D. D. Palmer had a patient come into his office who had [...]
Raising Healthier Children
I would like to review a paper titled “A Comparative Study of the Health Status of Children Raised Under the Health Care Models of Chiropractic and Traditional Medicine.” This study was printed in the summer 1989 issue of the Journal of Chiropractic Research. Two hundred pediatricians and two hundred chiropractors were surveyed as to the [...]
Colorado Trip, October 2012
I spent a few days on vacation this month in Colorado visiting friends. My partners in crime included a dear friend that I’ve known since we played an alto saxophone duet in high school, her family, and their cat. When there are 3 kids and a cat in the house, you can bet there will [...]
An Inside Job
Healing is an inside job. The difference between your body and $20 worth of inert organic material is an intelligent, organizing life force. This life force does not need to be added into you, because you were born with it. Certainly you don’t need your life force dimmed down or impeded! Every day, we are [...]
ADHD and Spectrum Disorders: Restoring the Neurological Connection
It is any parent’s greatest wish to see their children happy and healthy. There is nothing more joyful than seeing a carefree, innocent smile light up your child’s face. We love our children so much, and we never want to see them hurt or sick. There are far too many children who struggle with their [...]
Acid Reflux: A Power Problem?
Acid-stopping medications are intended to provide short-term relief of heartburn and acid reflux symptoms. Medications interfere with your stomach’s acid-producing mechanisms, or they neutralize acids that have already been produced. Over the long term, suppressing stomach acid can contribute to chronic illness. Strong stomach acid is required to break down proteins, fry pathogens like bacteria [...]
Normal aging, or better aging?
I was researching arthritis and found a simple explanation on an orthopedic surgeon’s website. It’s caused by normal wear and tear, apparently. They were referring specifically to osteoarthritis, which is the abnormal bone growth and spurring that causes motion restriction and nerve damage. As a chiropractor, I’ve seen a lot of X-rays. When there’s evidence [...]
The Amazing Dr. You!
When you woke up this morning, what did you decide to do? Grow fingernails and hair? Replace some worn-out red blood cells? Regenerate the lining of your stomach and intestines? Of course not! You didn’t need to plan for those things, because the amazing Dr. You is on the job, 24/7! It doesn’t matter if [...]
Shine Brightly in Your Golden Years
Want your golden years to shine brightly? Read on. A 2007 study looked at a managed care plan that used doctors of chiropractic as the primary care providers. The goal of the study was to compare the outcomes of this new managed care plan to those of the traditional HMO. After analyzing 7 years’ worth [...]
Could It Be Your Thyroid?
Fatigue, weight gain, and memory loss. Constipation plus cold hands and feet. Puffy eyes, dry skin, and hair falling out. How old does this person sound? If you think they are elderly, you may be right. Or they may be middle-aged and have a malfunctioning thyroid gland. Thyroid disorders are the most common malfunction of [...]
