The Big 50

On May 9 I turned 50. Yes, I was born on May 9, 1957. I am writing to let you know this because there are a few things that I have done over the years to help maintain and actually improve my health.

The list goes like this:

  1. I get regular chiropractic care.
  2. I take vitamins on a regular basis.
  3. I exercise regularly.
  4. I eat organic foods when possible.
  5. I have read and apply the data from ‘The Problems of Work’ by L. R. Hubbard. Using this data has helped reduce the stress of work and every day life.

The effects of over-medicated life styles

In my practice I see many patients who complain of symptoms such as difficulty falling asleep or staying asleep, joint pain, muscle pain, tenderness or weakness, lack of energy, swelling of the hands, feet ankles or lower legs, extreme tiredness, yellowing of the skin or eyes, swelling of the face, throat, tongue, lips, eyes, hands, feet, ankles or lower legs.

Did you realize that if you suffer from these symptoms you may be experiencing side effects from cholesterol lowering medications such as Lipitor? There are alternatives to cholesterol lowering drugs. Call us today to find out more!

True health begins with you

Many years ago when I decided to study chiropractic it was because of a simple belief that all chiropractors have. In fact this belief is instilled in the very definition of the word ‘chiropractic’ and that is that the body is equipped to heal itself when given the right nutrients and chiropractic adjustments to correct spinal misalignments.

The word chiropractic is defined as a method of treating diseases by adjusting the spine and certain other structures of the body. Chiropractic literally means ‘the use of hands’ or ‘done by hand’.

It is this basic idea, that finding the source of the body’s symptoms and tracing it back to the missing nutrient or spinal misalignments to really solve the problem that first led me to be a chiropractic patient and, later, study to be a Doctor of Chiropractor.

Ill health is NOT a way of life! Working with your body with chiropractic adjustments will help your body heal itself. True health IS the way of life.

So, on my 50th birthday, I would like to share the good news with all of you that good health is attainable for you and your family.
