Healthy Eating is now being called a mental disorder!

I’m speechless…

Choosing healthy foods now called a mental disorder

This is how sick and twisted things are becoming.  It’s called “Healthy Eating Disorder,” and it states that people are nervous about proper eating and making wise choices, and in eating well, they become malnourished.  They would rather you fill yourself up with chemicals, put no thought into what you are doing, and continue buying all the crap that is out there for you to consume.  (more…)

Heartburn drugs under fire

Common heartburn drugs are under fire, as a series of studies from the Archives of Internal Medicine released on Monday demonstrating serious side effects such as increase in fractures and bacterial infections.

Collectively, these drugs are called proton pump inhibitors, but they are better known as Nexium (AstraZeneca), Prilosec (AstraZeneca), Protonix (Pfizer), and Prevacid (Takeda).  These medicines have a total U.S. sales of 13.9 billion annually, as an estimated 113 million prescriptions are filled each year.  Dr. Michael Katz, director for the San Francisco Department of Public Health, states that 60 to 70 percent of people taking proton pump inhibitors do not need to be on them.  This problem is augmented by people being unaware of the risk until now.   (more…)

Motion is Life

God made our bodies as a phenomenally complex grouping of nerves, muscles, joints, and bones that intimately work together to achieve Motion. This is why we say that Motion is Life, and is the key to maintaining a high quality of life and feeling youthful.   (more…)

In the Footsteps of Greatness

I have been spending the weekend at the Grove Park Inn, where B.J. Palmer, the developer of our great chiropractic profession would stay and work on philosophy. His picture is hanging up in the hall next to Presidents, where they honor him as “the father of chiropractic,” (though erroneous, I was still very excited to see him up on the wall).

It is easy to see why he chose this place, it drips of inspiration with an amazing view of the Smoky Mountains. You can really shut out the world here and be still, an art that is all but lost in my generation. Being here in his temporal footsteps is not only motivating, but challenging. Can I contribute a fraction of what he did? Will I leave chiropractic better than when I entered it? My heart declares a resounding yes, and I know it can be done as long as I stay true to the purpose and vision for the second century of chiropractic.   (more…)

Do You want a Healer or a Dealer?

Health care is such a burning topic right now, and with all the press and dinner conversations going on about it, what is missing from the dialogue is health.  If you’ve been following my blog for any time at all, you have heard me talk about Health Care & Sick Care.  What we have in America is Sick Care, in fact you can see it all around you…we have more medicine, more surgery, more hospitals and we are sicker than ever before!  Our current system does not address health, it focus on ameliorating symptoms so we can continue our hectic lifestyles uninterrupted….then we are surprised when our health fails!  Health is proactive, I believe health to be the byproduct of making positive lifestyle decisions repeatedly over time.   (more…)

How Does One Experience Wellness in Today’s Environment?

We will begin by addressing Stress, which is at the root of most health problems. Stress has 3 dimensions, but interestingly enough they each affect your body in the same way.

1.Physical Stress – Car accident, repetitive injury, poor posture, exercise
2.Biochemical Stress – what you eat, what you drink, pollutants, skin products
3.Psychological Stress – the emotional aspect – work, home, financial (this is how you can “think yourself sick.”)   (more…)

Chiropractic described by a patient.

Chiropractic accurately described by long-term patient, Bill Esteb (owner, http://patientmedia.com)

Patients (and insurance carriers) see chiropractors as spine doctors. Both look through the allopathic (medical) lens of symptom treating, seeing the body as a collection of parts that breakdown independently of the others and that being symptom-free is the objective. 

Conversely, chiropractors who practice in a way congruent with the principles of chiropractic see themselves as facilitators, guides and allies. Their holistic view of the body helps them appreciate that each of us is greater than the sum of our parts. Each of us is an experiment of one and that the objective of care is to help patients adapt to their environment and express their fullest potential.” — Bill Esteb.  (more…)

One body, One life

At each moment, you are either moving towards health & wellness and away from sickness and disease, or you are moving towards sickness & disease and away from health and wellness.  If your determination is that you are moving the wrong way, then let this be a wake up call for you.   (more…)
