Foods That Tell a Story

One late August afternoon, with a chilly 60-degree breeze whizzing by me, I sat still, nearly motionless. I had that fall feeling. The end of summer was quickly approaching, bringing shorter days, earlier sunsets, and tighter schedules. Although I’m not a fan of endless sunlight, I do like the ease and freedom of long summer […]

Good To Know:
Ragland’s Test

There are many “SIMPLE” tests you can perform on your patients to determine the function of the body and the body’s systems.

The Art of Total Relaxation:
Physical, Emotional, and Spiritual

It may seem as if the only people who can reach this most serene state of being exist in religious or spiritual communities that are dedicated to keeping separate from worldly experiences. The rest of us must deal with the noise of the world—both the good and the bad—every day of the year! Nevertheless, in […]

Every Patient Visit Is an Open Book Quiz

As a healthcare provider, I find value in displaying charts on the wall and keeping other references handy that remind me of successful procedures and applications of Standard Process whole food supplements, including when to use them.

How Whole Food Supplements Helped Save My Rescue Dog’s Life

I adopted Snuggles, my Redtick Coonhound-Labrador mix from a shelter run by the Palm Valley Animal Society in Edinburg, Texas.

Ignite Your Digestive Fire:
Why You Need the Intrinsic Factor

Most of you know about the importance of eating healthy raw foods such as raw milk and fermented foods made from raw vegetables.

Muscle Testing:
Fact or Fantasy?

Muscle testing—what a wonderful tool. Chiropractors have been using it successfully since 1964, and since then other healthcare practitioners have incorporated it into their practice, including neurologists. Yep, on the sidelines of sporting events you will occasionally see a neurologist pushing on an athlete’s arms to determine neurological injuries. Muscle testing was developed by Dr. […]

“Why Do I Have to Keep Coming Back, Doc?”

Patients who are new to natural healthcare can be a bit finicky. I can say this with love and respect because I was just like that as a new patient years ago. I grew up in the “medical model,” where any symptom was undesirable and should be immediately suppressed with the latest medication. I was […]

Why Nutrition is Essential for the Chiropractor

When I was a young chiropractor, I often heard stories about the adjustment that would finally bring patients the relief they had long sought. I also wondered when this “magic adjustment” would take hold and resolve the back issues and subluxation complexes of my own patients. It wasn’t until I undertook Dr. Scott Walker’s Neuro-Emotional […]

Edible Flowers:
Beautiful, but Are They Nutritious?

Pickles:
Food that Tells a Story

Summertime brings more than warmth to my body. It also brings thoughts of preserving the abundance that the season so generously gives us. It’s the beginning of the long-awaited harvest—a time of year I love! In a climate where it’s possible to keep gardens, many of us grow cucumbers. Oodles of them. And when there […]

Gardening Part III:
Growth (Figurative and Literal)

It’s been a while since I’ve written about my gardening adventures—and I have plenty to update! The theme of my last two gardening posts was about if gardening is worth it, in terms of effort, time, and money. My conclusion was a resounding yes! Now, a few years and one move later, my knowledge has […]

Weight Loss, Real Probiotics & a Skinny Me!
