Why Do I Have to Take All This Weird Stuff?

As healthcare practitioners, we know that most of our professional advancement comes as a result of tackling new challenges. For example, a patient with a new condition may challenge us to come up with a new approach. Sometimes, all it takes is a question from an inquisitive patient to lead us to communicate in a […]

Letters from the Quarantined:
Coronaphobia vs. the Immune System

It’s been great hearing from practitioners, friends, and staff during our quarantine. They’ve sent me emails containing bits of humor and intelligence that you might find useful, so I’m sending this out to everyone coping with confinement in the CoronaSphere (a term coined by Bill Whittle). Please enjoy with your morning coffee. There have been […]

It just GOT REAL:
Defeating the Monster of Immune Depression

For twenty years the entire raw milk community has been preaching about the immune system benefits of raw milk and raw dairy products. The FDA and CDC has suppressed us. Mainstream media has scorned us. Industry has done everything possible to make sure that raw milk is cut off in the markets, in the legislature, […]

The Party is Over—Time for Americans to Rebuild Their Health

I think it is important to see what is really happening in the real world of conscious people who know the critical importance of a healthy immune system and the gut biome. Clearly the FDA and CDC don’t. We all totally agree that social distancing and hand washing are important, but where is the CDC […]

The Egg Scare Continues!
Let’s Get the Facts Straight

For years, that boogey man cholesterol has been convincing many of us to never eat eggs, especially yolks. This phenomenon carries on even after many studies have come out assuring us that our fear of cholesterol is based on nothing more than a myth. Yes, the cholesterol myth still exists. After a recent and somewhat […]

You will love this five-minute ABC News piece on Localish. Modern technology matched with pastures and the whole goodness of nature makes a great story. Raw milk is the first food of life for a reason. And it is not sterile! It builds immunity through gut biome biodiversity and the whole food that feeds the gut micro biome. The raw […]

Reclaiming the Lost Art of Nourishment

In this day and age of instant gratification, the art of truly nourishing our bodies has been lost. Rather than looking to food for its honest purpose—providing the fuel our bodies need to accomplish everything it must do each day—food is now just the stuff we consume to fill the void in our bellies. We […]

Healing with Gemstones:
Fact or Fiction?

When all is said and done, everything in the universe is energy. Even a seemingly dead old rock emanates its own energy! There is not a single thing I have studied that lacks this powerful ability to affect change in our bodies, our minds, and, yes, even the very spirit that dwells within us. In […]

Got Viruses? Get Raw Milk!

There are large, well-designed, peer-reviewed studies published in EU scientific journals showing that consumption of raw milk prevents colds. Colds are viruses! Every year the cold or flu virus is different, and our bodies adjust to the new threat, if our immune systems are healthy and strong.  These studies also show that raw milk consumers […]

Unexplained Fatigue:
Has Your Get Up and Go Got Up and Gone?

In the words of Samuel Butler, “Life is one long process of getting tired.” Maybe Mr. Butler was experiencing unexplained fatigue when he wrote his famous quote. This phenomenon is no stranger for many of us. I’ve experienced it myself and worked with many clients who have as well. They’ve come to me and simply […]

Can Proper Diet and Supplementation Heal Your Back Pain?

You are what you eat—and so is your back. Back pain is on the rise. Experts estimate a whopping 80 percent of the population will experience back pain at some point in their lives.

Help, I Have GERD!
A Tale of Two Sphincters

According to MarketWatch.com, “The global Antacids market was 6120 million US$ in 2018 and is expected to be 6460 million US$ by the end of 2025, growing at a CAGR of 0.7% between 2019 and 2025.” An impressive number, especially when you consider that all these sales are meant to reduce or eliminate a key […]

Demystifying the Mitochondria:

As a member of the Weston A. Price Foundation, I’m privy to a wonderful publication called Wise Traditions. This quarterly journal delves into nutrient dense foods as well as health issues discussed by top-rated doctors, scientists, and other holistically minded people.

The Two Most Important Tools for Health

As I’ve stated before, we need to do the following to stay healthy: move well, sleep well, eat well, and think well. This principle is loosely borrowed from Dr. James Chestnut, who was the first recipient of the Certified Chiropractic Wellness Lifestyle (CCWL) and whose book Live Right for Your Species Type is still the […]

Let’s Make 2020 the Year of Seeing Things Clearly

There was once a time when the year 2020 sounded incredibly futuristic. We’d never reach it—but if we did, there’s no way we’d look at our daily lives the same way in 2020 as we did back then. Surely, everything would be different. Right? Yet we’re just a few days into this visionary year and […]

The Proverbial Milkshake:
Improving One of America’s Favorite Treats

I suppose that the majority of my readers would shamelessly admit that they’ve enjoyed many, many milkshakes in their lifetime. I too am guilty. (Smile) As a matter of fact, milkshakes are one of my favorite childhood memories. I especially remember the fun of going to the corner drugstore with my girlfriends to sip on […]

Role of Chiropractic Adjustment in Pediatric Health Care

At the Erin Mills Optimum Health clinic in Mississauga, Ontario, we see many people, including children, seeking chiropractic adjustments to obtain relief for their neck and back pain.

Children, especially those who suffer from chronic health […]

The Dream State:
The Physical, the Emotional, the Prophetic

Do you dream often? And if you do, are you aware of what, why, and how your dreams happen? In recent months I’ve experienced some disturbing occurrences in my life, and I noticed that my dream state became much more active than I can ever remember. I’m even having the same dreams and similar dreams […]

Self-Health Habit #12:
Get More Sleep

Sleep is one of those things that most of us don’t get enough of. Though the restorative impact it has on our bodies is well known, I bet we don’t even know the half of it. The busyness of this time of year can be an arch enemy of slumber, so make sure you don’t […]

The Vanilla Queen:
An Entrepreneur Par Excellence

I recently wrote a fun blog post titled “Baking Better Cookies” in which I offered some healthier cookie recipes for my readers. Many (if not all of them) called for vanilla as one of the ingredients, but since I’m not one of those weekly cookie bakers, I was stunned when I shopped for a bottle […]
