Why the Primal Lifestyle?

Information bombards us daily. New dietary studies are published in the news on the regular basis. Yet they serve only to confuse us by offering contradictory information. The USDA publishes their food pyramid which was not designed by using science. It came about...

Vibrant Health, or out of pain?

Medically, we're not where we should be when it comes to health. I assert that part of the reason for that is we have misunderstood symptoms and what we should do about them. Are symptoms something we should suppress? Or are they a message from the body? Most people...

The Importance of Stress

Important? Stress? Really? Yes, really. Stress has long been considered a bad word, or at least, a bad thing. We can be overwhelmed by it, have stressful jobs, and even the word itself is enough to make us clench our teeth and shrug our shoulders to protect ourselves....

The Importance, and Futility of Exercise

Exercise. For years it has been said that if you want to lose weight and be healthy, you need to exercise. If you talk to twenty people about what kind of exercise you should do, you'll get twenty different responses. Even if the quest is just to lose weight. Many...

When I first attended Chiropractic school, I was beginning the process of questioning just what was wrong with health and healthcare. The biggest problem that I see is the faulty assumption that medicine equals healthcare. It doesn’t. Medicine is the study and...

Great stuff by Paleo Leap!

The folks at the site Paleo Leap have got it right as far as I'm concerned. It goes to show that Paleo is more than simply a way of eating, it's a philosophical approach to living. As they produce articles that deal with genetics, nutrition, exercise, stress, as well...

Acceptance Aids With Healing

I don't like pain. I really don't. Most people I know also don't like pain. It hurts! You know what? It's supposed to hurt. It's supposed to motivate you to change something in your life. All symptoms do. They are messages from your body, and when you have a symptom,...

Powerful Chiropractic Testimonial
