The Untold Story of Ebenezer Scrooge

The Untold Story of Ebenezer Scrooge

This time of year, I LOVE throwing things away, simplifying, downsizing, getting back to basics.  It is amongst the holiday chaos I always like to clear clutter before anything new comes in to my life.  So, the other morning while going through papers, documents, and books I found the famous children’s book How the Chiropractor saved Christmas.  What? you never heard about it before!?  Let me summarize.   It’s a great story about how on Christmas eve, Santa’s reindeer weren’t exactly ready to go.   Dasher wasn’t dashing, prancer wasn’t prancing, so Santa brought in a chiropractor to set them […]

I may have lost my luggage, but we found a gem.

I may have lost my luggage, but we found a gem.

In September of 2016, Labor Day weekend in the states, I spent the long weekend traveling to Barcelona Spain to teach upper cervical chiropractic. I embarked on a trip that would open new doors, opportunities, and change my chiropractic direction forever.  This was the first time I had traveled to Europe since my senior year of high school and I was just as excited then as I was when I was 18.  I was a bit more seasoned, older, balder, grayer, and some might even say wiser. Anyway, I was ready. I always had a strong affinity for the culture, diversity, food, […]

This always happens.

This always happens.

So I do a lot of networking, I mean A LOT of networking in the community of Reading, and also in the chiropractic profession, and the one thing I am hearing from people in the community right about now is…   “Every year, around this time of year, this seems to happen to me!”   Whether its allergies, increase in pain, dry skin, or getting what everyone else is getting, I hear it daily. Oh heck, even my clients already under care who have been doing amazing often have an increase in symptoms during this time of year… So the […]

It’s not me, it’s you

It’s not me, it’s you

…who is responsible for the healing.   You might think it’s a pill, potion, lotion, or healer. But the best doctor is you.     We honor that. In the absence of life, there is no healing, there is no function, there is no coordination.   There is a wisdom inside of you that created an amazing body that…   transmits nerve signals at 100 meters per second…   has more bacteria in a human mouth than there are people in the world…   replaces its stomach lining every 5 days…   has blood that circulates about 12,000 miles…   Healing is […]

The Phenomena of Change.

The Phenomena of Change.

Most people never consider the impact of one simple change.  We live in a fast-paced world that seeks the end before the beginning, that shotguns their diets, exercise plans, and sometimes beers.   But the research is clear.  According to the text The Power of Habit by Charles Duhigg, making one commitment or change, that is executed results in greater health.  That commitment doesn’t even have to be about health!   Commit to changing your finances, and magically people smoke less, workout more, make healthier food choices, drink less alcohol, spend more hours on productive task, and watch less TV.   […]

Find out Why We’re Walking for a Cause.

Listen, If you have been living in the US in the last decade then you have more than likely walked for a CURE.  Whether it was walking for a cure for Cancer, MS, Parkinson’s, Diabetes, etc, you probably have participated in one of these events.  They are all very mainstream, raise a lot of money, and bring people together.  There is nothing wrong with doing this.  In fact, it’s absolutely important to support the people we love, and people in our community!  Now, I wanted to let you in on a little secret about why and what we will be […]

You Don’t Have to be a Yogi to do Yoga

You Don’t Have to be a Yogi to do Yoga

Close your eyes and think of the word yoga. What is the first thing that comes to mind? Odds are you are imaging a fit woman in yoga pants that look flawless on her body doing what appears to be a one-armed pretzel posture. And wondering, how did she get her leg behind her head?

Hey if that is your dream to accomplish one day, great. We will help you achieve it, but […]

Should you be Juicing?

Should you be Juicing?

Should You Be Juicing? Almost every health authority recommends that we get 6-8 servings of vegetables and fruits per day, yet very few of us actually get that. Juicing is an easy way to guarantee that you will reach your daily target. Juicing is extracting the juices from fresh fruits or vegetables and drinking the resulting liquid, which retains most of the vitamins, minerals and plant chemicals. There is debate about whether juicing is as healthy as eating whole fruits and vegetables, but it is a convenient way to add them to your diet if you’re not going to eat […]

The Best way to be HAPPY & HEALTHY is to be YOU!

The best way to be HAPPY is to be YOU!…and that makes you TERRIFIC. This past weekend Jordan (my assistant), my wife Lauren, and I attended a conference in Atlanta GA known as Dynamic Essentials.  Dynamic Essentials was established over 50 years ago by Dr. Sid E. Williams.  Life Chiropractic College was eventually established and built out of the Dynamic Essential meeting.  At these meetings Dr. Sid Williams, known as the defender of Chiropractic, taught chiropractors the principles of giving, loving, serving, and doing out of their own abundance without expectation of return (coined lasting purpose) and how to be […]

New Year, New You? The Age Old Question.

You’ve heard it, you’ve said it…. This year is going to be different!  Well he’re the truth, most new year’s resolutions, goals, plans have already become abandoned by the time you are reading this.  The question to ask is Why?  In my opinion it comes down to 2 fundamental reasons. You don’t have a big enough why!  In the age of WHY, you don’t have one.  Listen, if you wanted to get fit because you want to look like a picture in a magizine ….it might not be a big enough WHY for you (it might be?).  If you’re 20 […]
