I Dared Him To Answer This

2021-09-10T17:21:09-04:00

As we (hopefully) turn the corner toward spring, more and more folks will be gearing up to shed those unwanted winter quarantine pounds. So I challenged a personal trainer friend of mine and asked him: “If you had just a few minutes to transform someone’s fitness forever, and you could never speak to that person again, what advice would you give them?” Here’s the 4 gems he answered with: 1. Try not to do too much too soon. Waiting rooms are full of weekend warriors who injured themselves or fizzled out by going hard when their bodies simply weren’t ready. Sometimes [...]

Top 4 Biggest Pain Myths

2020-06-17T15:01:01-04:00

Today I’m laying down a trail of bread crumbs that, if you follow it, might just lead you (or anyone you care about) to be pain-free, or far closer to it. So without further suspense, here are my Top 4 Biggest Pain MYTHS: “It’s better just to lie in bed.” It’s a common misbelief that the answer to pain is simply to rest it.  This one’s been debunked for a while actually - research shows that most painful conditions need some sort of movement in order to heal.  Movement helps blood flow, preserves muscle strength, and prevents fear that inhibits recovery. What type [...]

“Good actions give strength to ourselves, and inspire good actions in others.” -- Samuel Smiles   You may not know this. But many people are participating in a campaign called Dry Feb this month. Check it out here: https://www.dryfeb.ca/about The short version is you agree to give up alcohol for the month of February to help raise funds for cancer research.  What a great idea.  Do something for your health and contribute to a cause while you’re at it!

Your 2020 Fast-Start Plan

2020-01-01T12:48:47-05:00

Happy New Year! Today’s tip is simple and straightforward, the way I like it. Hormones dictate how we feel.  The amount of confidence, joy, energy, and connection with other humans you experience are all tied to your hormonal well-being. And how you eat is a big factor in your hormonal health. You can effectively change the person you are…become happier, stronger, more motivated, more loving…simply by eating better. If you want more out of 2020 – start there. Sound obvious?  Perhaps.  But here’s something else to think about: this is not only about choosing healthy options.  For instance, did you know [...]

Are You Toxic? (The Answer May Surprise You)

2019-12-10T15:36:31-05:00

Cautionary tale today. A “chemical revolution” over the past 50 years has polluted nearly every aspect of our lives. The truth is we still have much to learn about the long term health risks this poses. But research has shown that every single one of us carries synthetic chemicals in our body. And it’s estimated the average person is exposed to 200 chemical toxins a day. Bill Moyer, author of the Moyer report, was tested for chemical toxins in his blood and urine at Mount Sinai School of Medicine. They found 84 different hazardous chemicals, including some that’ve been banned for [...]

Try This Little-Known Harvey Specter Success Secret

2019-11-26T13:48:37-05:00

Let me share something personal. One of my favourite shows is Suits. I just love all the witty back and forth, the intense personal and courtroom drama, and well…I’ve got two words for you…Harvey Specter. I admit: I’m a fan. As a chiropractor, one of the things I appreciate about Gabriel Macht (the actor who plays Harvey) is how well he portrays the character’s posture and body language. If you haven’t seen the show, Harvey is a high-powered corporate attorney, known as “New York’s best closer”.  And from the moment he enters a scene, you don’t have a shred of doubt [...]

83-Yr-Old Gets Her Groove Back

2019-11-11T13:38:30-05:00

Meet my patient Doreen. We started working together when she was 82, after we met at a retired persons association meeting where I’d given a talk. Like most people her age, she had several health concerns.  But with regular adjustments she soon found herself with an extra spring in her step.  Most notably, the stiff neck she’d suffered with for years had regained almost full range of motion. Watch this brief video to hear Doreen tell the story in her own words: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=edQX7zo7frw&feature=youtu.be Here’s what I love about this… Her body, at her age, still has the power to heal! Over [...]

How would YOU help these people?

2019-11-05T12:37:39-05:00

Take a minute and look at the picture below.                 Now let me ask you a question: How would you help these people? The man covering his ears probably can’t hear that well, would you give him a hearing aid? Should the woman in the middle get glasses? What about the man on the right?  A microphone?  Maybe some meds? What drugs would you prescribe for these folks to help them hear, see and speak? You’re right. These are ridiculous suggestions to fix obvious problems. If they’d just remove the interference (i.e. their hands [...]

Why You Should NOT See A Chiropractor For Back Pain

2019-10-22T14:25:53-04:00

In 1927, R. W. Stephenson wrote The Chiropractic Text Book. This text included the entire learning program, from freshman to senior year, for chiropractic study.  Since back and neck pain are the two most common reasons people choose chiropractic, how many times do you think back pain would be found in the index? Keep in mind this is the complete chiropractic text at over 414 pages long. What’s your guess? 50 times? 100? Every page? The answer is [drum roll please]… Not even ONCE. And the reason it's not listed is because chiropractic was founded on principles of healing and well-being, [...]

And I’m finally getting around to having a plan in place to get back into things.  What I’m remembering – and why this may be useful to you – is that it’s no small task.  There’s work, planning, and dedication that goes into it.
