Why Should I Continue If I’m Feeling Fine?

By the time you have disease symptoms, your body could have been in a state of dis-ease for weeks, months, or even years! Some people think pain is the only reason to visit a chiropractor. That attitude is dangerous because vertebral subluxations are often painless. They may remain within you, interfering with your life and…

For Skeptics Only

“I don’t believe in Chiropractic” While chiropractic is unique and different, it certainly is not something that you have to “believe in”. Chiropractic, like gravity, works whether you believe in it or not.

The Wisdom of the Body!

Are you healthy if you feel good? If you said, “Yes” ask yourself if you ever felt good one day and then came down with a cold, the flu or some other condition the next. You probably felt fine the day before you got sick, but were you healthy? What about people who “feel good”…

What is Welness

Everywhere you look these days in health care it seems that all types of providers are offering you “Wellness” services.

At that time chiropractors were called “quacks” for offering wellness approaches. Now you see…

What allows the body to heal?

How To Live Longer!

You are born to express physical, mental and spiritual health; to radiate vitality, harmony, peace, joy, optimism, strength, love and healing at any age. But it rarely seems that way. Disharmony, illness, disease, depression, fatigue, and emotional problems touch so many lives. Too many of us walk this earth with our bodies, hearts and souls…

Health Care’s Missing Link

Chemical Stress and Your Health

Chemical stress is a factor in your health that you may or not be aware of.  This stress comes in many forms.  Preservatives and chemicals in our foods and drinks, products at home like laundry soap, cleaning supplies, deodorant and hairspray. Chemicals in our body can affect many systems including our nervous system, the master…

Nutrition and Strength

As we age, the strength of our muscles plays an important role in preventing falling. It is important to maintain…

Benefits of Exercise

More and more, I encounter folks who lead sedentary lives. They cite lack of time and energy as reasons why they do not exercise. This saddens me because there are so many people who would give everything they have to be able to move their bodies! It is my hope that the information I present…

Chiropractically Speaking About Colds & Flu

  Would you rather be healthy or just feel good? You can be healthy and still not feel well. Coughing, sneezing, headaches, aches and pains are not the result of a lack of medication. Fevers, diarrhea, and other symptoms are natural ways your body responds to infection and disease. These are just a few of the…
