  • For nearly 10 years the focus of my life was working with urban poor people.  In one of those experiences essentially 10 of us were in the midst of overwhelming human need.  The number of meaningful things that needed to be done was endless.  I couldn’t begin to count how many times people would come up and say:  “Pastor, someone needs to do something about . . .”  With every identified problem, there was a recommended program, service or ministry that needed to be started.
  • After studying nearly four thousand children, two Dutch physicians concluded that 88% of children with acute ear infections never needed antibiotics.  This startling discovery occurred after testing fluid samples taken from the child’s ear.  In all 88% no traces of bacteria were found, therefore, making it impossible for antibiotics to have any effect.  When was the last time you saw a child with an earache get tested for bacteria?

    Another Life Threatening Warning

    June 27, 2016

    Thank you to a concerned patient that forwarded me this urgent warning.  All drugs containing PHENYLPROPANOLAMINE have been recalled.  Please read this CAREFULLY. Also, please pass this on to everyone you know.

    DO NOT TAKE anything containing this ingredient.  If you have any of these products dump them down the toilet.  It has been linked to increased hemorrhagic stroke (bleeding in brain) Among women ages 18-49 in the three days after starting use of medication. 

  • Medical researchers now say that over half of the people with heart disease never had high cholesterol or high blood pressure.  This has medical researchers baffled.  They wonder why people have heart disease when these two “causes” are absent.

    For years all we have heard is that if you have high cholesterol or high blood pressure you’re a goner.  If you don’t then you’re OK.  The truth is these tests are only a symptom of the underlying cause.

    Sunshine: Friend or Foe?

    June 13, 2016

    As summer arrives, we welcome longer, sunnier days. But the sun is a double-edged sword: it’s a source of vitamin D and a natural mood-enhancer. It can also be a dangerous foe causing sunburn, sun stroke, even skin cancer. It’s important to stay aware of the sun and its positive - and negative - effects. The same applies to our spinal health.

  • When planning your summer vacations, remember the sunscreen,  but don't forget your spinal health!

    Summer is finally here. 

    Many of us will plan vacations in an attempt to leave our day-to-day cares behind. Unfortunately, we can’t leave our spinal subluxations behind when we hit the highway. Spinal problems do not take vacations.

    EnJOY the Journey

    May 30, 2016

    We all have goals. But what about the journey?

    There’s no joy in the process if you’re gritting your teeth, trudging along, or fighting the change every step of the way.

    Enjoy a Galaxy of Good Health

    May 23, 2016

    We look up at the night sky in wonder. With the naked eye, we see the big dipper, meteors blazing across our field of vision, and the glorious blue-green curtains of the Aurora Borealis. 

    But there is so much more. With binoculars, a single star turns into a double; with a telescope, far-off galaxies become visible. 
    Without the proper instruments, and the knowledge to use them, all these wonders remain hidden. 

    Our spinal health is like that: with the proper instruments, in the hands of a skilful practitioner, much is revealed.

    Silent Killers and Your Best Defense

    May 16, 2016
    Many adults suffer from hypertension, also known as high blood pressure. The problem is, hypertension is mostly symptom-free. That’s why it’s called the “silent killer” – many don’t even know they have it.

    Similarly, more than 80% of patients with phase one subluxations don’t know they have them because there may be no pain or change in their range of motion. Just like hypertension, their spinal problems are silent, but no less real. And just like hypertension, leaving subluxations untreated can lead to serious health risks.

    World's Hardest Job...Mom

    May 2, 2016

    Moms are 24/7.  It's truly the world's hardest job, but we like to believe the most rewarding as well.  

    Mother’s Day is around the corner. As we celebrate Mother’s Day, we celebrate all the things mothers do to care for their families, every single day. But when you think about it, a mom is a mom every day of the year, 24/7. Even when her kids are grown, moms still care about and think of their children.
