Bozeman or Bust.

It is very important to take time off from your daily routine and go out and adventure life.  While I’m pretty good at doing this, sometimes you need to just get away to appreciate all that you do have and get a fresh jump start to all the great opportunities that life has to offer.

Wednesday night I took off for Bozeman.  I picked up fellow Chiro Dave Leske and my nephew Matt Edling and off we were for the 13 hour and 1000 mile drive to Bozeman Montana.  We got there at 7am thursday morning and the sun was just coming up.. What a beuatiful scene it is at day break on the Bozeman pass from Livingston and into Bozeman. As tired as we all were the beauty of the Bridger mountains and Gallatin Valley gave us a rush of energy.  We checked into the Lewis and Clark motel in Bozeman and then off we were to Bohart ranch for some cross country skiing in the Bridger mountains.  Bohart ranch had the best groomed trails I have ever skied.  I sure wasn’t adapted to the elevation since the first hill I had to stop and catch my breathe.  I thought my heart was going to explode.  I knew I was in for a little challenge on Saturday when we were to race the Rendevoux x-ski race in West yellowstone which was at 6800 feet.

All roads lead to the Lewis and Clark Motel

We had to hit the Bozeman hot springs which felt so good after a long drive and ski.  If you get out to Bozeman hit the hot springs.  Your body will feel so great going from the very hot springs to the cold springs.

Then we were off to see my son Connor who gave us a tour of the campus.  What a great campus and it was nice to see Connor coming into his own out there.

On friday we went to the Museum of the Rockies which had incredible dinasour exhibit and a history of the civil war exhibit.  You have to see that if you get out there too.  Then off we were to West Yellowstone to pick up our bibs and get settled down for the big race on saturday morning.

Incredible trails in West Yellowsotne.

It was fun seeing people from all over the western states come to West Yellowstone for the  race.  This is kind of like our Birkie for them.  I met people from Pocatello Idaho, Salt Lake City, Truckee Ca, and even a skier drove out from Eau claire for the race.  Him and I were the only Wisconsin racers.

It was 25 degrees at the start of the race  and the course looked really fast.  It was a very competitive field and people were doing more racing than most races I race.  The gun went off and I took off at a decent pace but not going to hard.  Well 15 minutes later on the first big hill I couldn’t get my breathe and felt light headed.  I had to stop and let a group of people go by me as I tried to recover.  I knew I had to slow down and just pace my self and I did that.  The next big hill climb I was barely moving and I had to stop again.  This was what the whole first lap was like.  At the half way point I wasn’t sure if I’d be able to make the whole 50k.  Well I relaxed and somehow got my wind and starting picking off people who passed me earlier like I was standing still.  With 2 k to go I passed a young woman skier who said I looked strong and to go get the other guy ahead of us which I did.  Later that night while we went to The Montana Ale Works in Bozeman for supper this same girl who I had past was now our greeter.  We laughed and gave each other a big hug.

Cross country skiing like any passion that you have gets the most out of you and you meet great people when you get out of your comfort zone and just go for it in life.  I encourage all of you to find something you like or would like to try and give it a shot.  You have nothing to lose and everything to gain.  The most rewarding thing about skiing is hte relationships you develop by meeting people and the sense of accomplishment when training and racing.  I have great friends in Dave and Matt and they were able to experience the best of Bozeman and we had a great time.  You too can do what ever you dream about.  This whole Bozeman road trip was jsut a split second idea I had the night before the Birkie and I’ll remember it fondly for the rest of my life

.

It was great to meet up with Scott and Amy Frischmon who own Wild Mountain.  They have a beautiful place on Big Sky spend a couple of hours after the race on our way back to Bozeman.  We also went to the Montana State-Montana mens basketball game Saturday nigth nd that was a lot of fun ecven though we were all pretty wiped out.

It’s back to helping all of you to my best ability.  I’ll be doing a lot of in office workshops so keep posted to emails and facebook as to what lecturees will be given and your ooportunity to attend and get your health back if you have lost it and keep it once you have it.

Repair and clear your gut for good healing.

One of the most important priorities in delaing with people’s health or lack of health is to make sure they have good gut function.

Why is this so important?

Because, your gut has many many fucntions including 80% of your immune system lies right in the gut.  If you have poor gut health then you aren’t going to be healthy and you can have many other dysfunctions of the body becasue of poor gut health.

Digestion starts in your mouth and ends with a bowel movement.  It’s incredible the number of physiological processses that go on.  You have to produce enough hydrochloric acid in your stomach to breakdown your food.  Digestive enzymes must be released to break food down in the intestines, gall bladder and liver is activated during digestion, and a huge host of other activities that we do not have conscious control over but work their magic.

Mary and Connor at old house in 1994

What can get in the way of good digestion is the food we eat.  It can either work for us in a positive way or against us.  Unfortunatly the standard American diet will totally work against your body and totally destroy your gut lining and can lead to many health conditions.  When you lose the integrity of your gut lining your food proteins aren’t digested and go into the blood stream not getting digested and your immune system sets up an attack since this is foreign and can cause a host of problems over time from allergies, to auto-immune condtions, to just plain old poor gut and bowel function.  I guess you could call this a leaky gut condtion.  When you have a leaky gut it must get healed.  I do specific strategies to heal your gut and get you back on the road to better health and well being. It’s imperative that you change you diet, manage your stress, and get some movement in your life.  One of the tests I do to assess gut and bowel activity is a stool microbial test.  It measures how much good bacteria you have in the gut and also measures bad gut bacteria, yeast and parasites which also can cause havoc and wreck your gut and lead to a chronic inflammatory state.  It’s not uncommon to find bad gut bacteria and parasitic infections on the blood work and then on the stool microbial tests.  This must be hadled and I do a prtotocol to fix this.

When you have a leaky gut you probably have a leaky brain which can lead to brain fog, fatigue, and just not feeling good.

Be very conscious about what you put in your mouth.  Stay away from anythnig that is boxed, canned, or processed.  Those along with grains and dairy are offending foods that will more than likely just add fuel to the fire.

The one thing you must never have is high fructose corn syrup.  This is poison!  It will kill your gut, spike your blood sugar, and make you fat and stupid.  Just say no to all sugary and diet pops.

Winter high school sports are well on their way.  Good luck to all the kids who are in extracurricular activites.  it keeps them in the game of life.

It’s been kind of fun checking out different colleges with my son Riley.  He hopes to play a little football also.

It’s great to have Connor back from Montana State for the holidays.  He’s a whiz with the computers which helps me out a ton.

Ok, Christmas is right around the corner.  Don’t stress to much, enjoy it and have fun with your families!!’

Last thyroid workshop is tonight here 6:30 pm.  I’ve got room for 2 more people.

Be ready to jump start your new year with our weight loss program.  Starts first week in January.  Look for details in hte coming week or so.

Fixing knee pain

Knees have been a particular interest for me for ever since I had my first knee injury back in 1978.

At the young age of 16 I tore my right medial meniscus .

I remember not only the physical pain but the emotional distress of not being able to walk or do the normal things kids do.

I remember going down to Central Medical in St. Paul and seeing the Vikings doctor.  He checked my knee and said I had to have surgery.  That was a shocker and my first thing I thought was I hope this wasn’t going to ruin my sports career.

I rehabed it as best I could for what they did back then and 8 weeks later I was playing basketball.

2 years later I was just running down the court and went to catch a long pass and felt my whole right knee explode.

I knew at that moment something major happened and more than likely another surgery was needed.

This was prior to MRI’S, and they did not even know an ACL existed back in 1979.

Surgery was done again, tons of rehab completed, but my knee was still  unstable when I tried punt, play hoops or do daily activities.

I did everything I could but my career was cut short.  19 years of age and that was it.

I eventually had ACL repair which provided more stability, and has allowed for some better fucntion when I cross country ski.

Today after 4 knee surgeries I have much degenerative arthritis throughout my knee.

The reason I function fairly well with the knee is I do a lot of conditioning to keep my muscles around my knee, lower extremityes, gluts, and core strong. Adjsuting my spine and lower extremities helps keep my aligned, ARP, laser, and graston techniques work great also.

Stability is crucial.  I actually still do box jumps, kettle ball swings, one leg glut work, and a variety of strength exercises.  Speed and agility is also important.

If you have knee pain or chronic problems the worst thing you can do is sit home and do nothing.

You have to get out and move your body.

If you or a loved one has a knee issue that keeps you from enjoying life then an assessment by me is a good idea.  I’ve been through everything with knees and I know how to get people active again and keep them in the game of life.

The All-star game is upon us.  What a fantastic week for the Twin Cities.

I remember going to the first home run derby in 1985 at the Metrodome.  Dave Parker won it.  It wasn’t even televised back then and I think it was $10 to get in.  No the home run derby is bigger than the game and if you want a ticket you are going to have to pay $400.  Times have changed.

Growing up the all-star game was something I loved to watch every year.  It meant summer was 1/2 over.

Rod Carew, Tony Oliva, Harmon Killerbrew, Robin Yount, Brooks Robinson, Vida Blue, Al Kaline, Hank Aaron, Willie Mays, Pete Rose, Johnny Bench, Reggie Jackson, were all some of my favorites.

Baseball in the summer was my favorite sport.  There is just something about summer baseball.  I’m still playing after all these years.  Wednesday night at Oakey Park the Oakey Owls will be playing at 7pm.  Come on down and enjoy some summer fun.

That’s it for this week.  Take action with your life and enjoy your life to the max!!  Dr. E

Mary and her dad. He just turned 86!

Not being able to do what you want to do is no darn fun.

I hope all of you had an incredible 4th of July weekend.  It sure was a busy one for me.  It started early friday morning with the Siren 5 k run.  I did a 19:40 which was pretty good.  That’s 3 sub 20 minute 5k’s this year.  Interesting how I wasn’t running that fast 5 years ago.  The only thing different is increasing intervals and doing speed and agility work with the high school football players.

Time to enjoy summer.

When I was standing in line to registar for this race and at the starting line waiting for the gun to go off I heard people telling stories of how they haven’t been able to run like they normally would because of injury.  One of the most common one’s I hear in people over 30 or people who put on way to much mileage way to fast is plantar fascitis.  This can be quite debilitating.  Everytime you stand up to walk it hurts like the dickens in the heel.  It’s just about impossible to have any type of productive run when you are compensating due to the pain it produces.  Then when you do run your gait is altered and then you can get a whole bunch of compensation patterns that set in and then watching these people run looks painful.  If you have ever had it you know what I’m talking about.  There is hope.   I see and treat this everyday in my office.  You shouldn’t have to be off for months with this type of problem, but that’s what I hear when I talk or see people that come in.  You have to correct underlying poor biomechanics first.  I usually will use kinesiotape to help and then get custom fit orthotics which work great for most people.  You also need a lot of soft tissue trigger point work to work out the adhesions in the calf and foot muscles and adjusing the pelvis and lower extremities is crucial for good outcomes also.  Once you can walk without pain then go to 1/4 speed jog, then 1/2 and work up form there.  I also like doing a variety of activites to condition the whole body.  You don’t have to suffer if you have plantar fascitis.  Lets get you back in the game of life and start enjoying it again.

Another common condtion I see every day is peripheral neuropathy.  This is a neuro-metabolic condition which can effect the feet where you have pain, numbness, or can’t tell where your feet are.  It’s very disabling for people since they don’t know where there feet are in space.  That’s why these people fall alot because they can not feel there feet hit the ground.  I see this commonly in diabetics, peopel with spinal stenosis of the low back where the nerves get pinched is another cause of neuopathy, along with many others.  One of the easiest things you can do to help this condition is getting off gluten.  Gluten is in grain and there are numerous studies which show this creates inflammation and makes peripehral neuropathy worse.  Adjusting the lower extremities, using vibration, laser, and I love the ARP wave therapy we use at our clinic.  The ARP wave helps waken those dying neurons up.  Neuropathy patients are all different and can be difficult cases since they are so varied.  If you have peripheral neuropathy or know someone that does have it you have nothing to lose by giving this a fair shot.  The medical treatment for this is basically Gabapentan medication and then just live with it.

I’m starting to see a bunch of overuse injuries in young athletes who are trying to get in shape for there fall sports.  Most are due to to much stress on their growing bodies and they just can’t keep up and the body starts breaking down.  Do not train through pain.  Good idea to get these kids in here for a good biomechanical evaluation.  Lets get them fixed up so they can enjoy their sport and be fully functional.

I want to give a big shout out to Osceola grad Mark “MJ” Johnson and Baldwin Woodville grad Travis Shackelton for making the shrine football game.  It’s on the 19th of July and those boys are well deserving of this accomplishment.  Mark will be going to school at UWRF and Travis at UW Stout.  Both will be playing football there.  Osceola’s head football coach Scott Newton will be an assistant coach for the team.

July is a great month of summer.  The heat is finally here and it’s a great time to get out and enjoy life.  I’ll take the heat anyday over the cold.  I don’t know how we all do it up here in the winter.

I power washed 8 hours arond our pool area this weekend.  I’m finally done with all the major to do list outside our house.  That was brutal hard on my body.  Be careful if you power wash.  I have a huge gash above my ankle from where I accidently power washed myself.  Those power washers are remarkable.  Talk about getting things clean.

Powerwashing works miracles.

OK, that’s it for today.  Keep up moving your body, cleaning your diet up, and being grateful in life!!

Play like a Champion, train like an underdog

I love the above quote I saw on NCSA which is a recruiting service for high school athletes.  What a great affirmation that would be.  Below you will see some common affirmations that work wonders.  Give them a shot and see your subconscious align with the conscious and watch out world.

Be on the watch for upcoming weight loss classes at my clinic.  I’ve had a couple do a jump start and get started now.  They don’t want to wait which isn’t a bad idea.

Goofball Christmas pic fro 3 years ago.

Yesterday was a day of rememberance service at our church.  It’s a day of remembering loved ones who have passed.  This was the first such service I had been to and it was a really nice service.  I didn’t realize how hard it was going to be.  It ‘s interesting how your emotions can be when you least expect it.  This past year has been quite a process for me dealing with my dads poor health and subsequent death.  The death and funeral was hard but the last year was very tough.  I try to remember all the good times, especially playing golf and going to ball games.  The one thing I learned is that you will never forget the memory of a loved one.  So, take a moment over the holiday season to remember a loved one who has died.  Remember to take care of yourself and love one another even if it is at times difficult to do.  Love is a important part of being a human being.  It can transend all the up’s and downs of life.  Prayer is also a powerful healing tool we should all use.  We all can use prayer.  Pray for one another also.

Mom, Dad, and I 30 some years ago.

Another thing you may want to try is some affirmations.  Aligning your subconcious with the conscoius is very important.  Maybe try a few of these below.  Look in the mirror and say the affirmations 5 times out loud and then 5 times to yourself. If you don’t have a mirroe that’s ok.  Make sure you keep your eyes wide open when you are doing your affirmations.

I am healthy.

I am in control of my health.

I am loved.

I am loving myself

I am forgiving yourself.

I am changing for the better.

I am happy.

I am fearless.

I am giving unconditional love to others.

I have a burning desire ot succeed.

I am a go getter.

I have a wonderful, lasting relationship with _________.

I love and forgive______________.

I am making correct decisions and taking immediate actio!

Give them a shot.  Utilizing this protocol will super-charge your affirmations and burn them into your sub conscious!!

Christmas is only 8 days away.  I am blessed othave my son Connor back safe and sound from Montana State University in Bozeman Montana.  He survived his first finals.   This is a great time to get your kids in for an adjsutment over the break also.

Keep up being positive in your mind and take action .  Remember to play like a champoion, and train like an underdog and you will lose the fear and enjoy success!

Don’t drink the water!

I was up in Canada last Wednesday thru Saturday and I’m telling you it was rainy non stop, very cold, and windy the whole time.  The fish were not biting and I drank out of the tap and got very ill with Giardia.  It sucked the life out fo me.  I couldn’t eat, couldn’t move, and felt a 100 years old.  I was putting my best game face on but running to the bathroom every 15 minutes for 24 hours wasn’t much fun, especially when the out house was 100 yards away and it was pouring outside and 45 degrees.

Canada Dry "Not"

I slept a ton during this time and eventually by monday morning I had gotten over the acute symtoms of having a parasite destroy my insides.  I used Apex’s G.I. synergy which is a combination of products to help kill bad gut bacteria and parasites.  Added high doses of HCL and within 24 hours of being home I was about 80 % better.  Now on a high dose of probiotic and I”m feeling much better.  If you have poor gut health it can really mess everything up.  Remember 80% of your immune system lies in your gut and if it’s compromised you are going to have energy problems and a host of other issues.  Keep your gut clean and health and you will have a lot of energy for sure and you are more likely not to get sick.  Also, when traveling don’t drink the water.

Well, the St. Croix Valley lost an incredible person over the weekend.  Susie Raygor Jasperson was one of a kind human being.  I’ve known her my whole life and she was a giver of life I can tell you that.  She was never afraid to speak her mind.  I remember the first time she met Mary, she paused and said it will never last.  We looked at each other and I said to Mary, that’s our Susie.  It may be the only time she’s been wrong the last 20 years.  Boy, we sure loved her and she is going to be deeply missed.  I going to miss seeing her at all the Braves games.  This past year I’ve seemed to go to so many funerals.  It used to be weddings every weekend in the summer, now it seems to be funerals.

My advice when friends and family are dying is to get out and start living.  Living each day to the max is something I love to do.  I do not like sitting around watching the T.V.  I love playing and having fun.  I know if I’m down or not having a great day then the best anti-depressant is exercise.  Add some good nutrition for your brain and body and watch out world.  We are all here for such a short period of time.  You blink and life has passed you by.  Start living and have no regrets so when the time to pass comes you will feel great about your life here on this earth.  So lets all get busy and live life to the max each and every day!!  Dr. E

P.S.  I just accidently smashed my cell phone and won’t have another one out for 4 days or so. If you need to get a hold of me call me at the office 715-294-3100 or home 715-755-3733

P.S.P.S. I did catch a 17 inch Walleye.

25th Annual Turkey Bowl

This was the 25th annual Turkey Bowl.  It’s always one of the highlights of the year for me.  I love feeling for one day out of the year like I’m invincible on the football field.  Reality soon steps in when on the first play that left hamstring and groin start to feel a shade over 50.

Four have played in all 25 Turkey Bowls.    Tommy Krenz, Kevin Rogers, Terry Bailergeon, and Rollo Grant.  Tommy had an incredible game at QB.  The  red team started making a comeback  when he came in and took charge at QB and made two spectacular throws on the final drive with 70 yards to go in under 2 minutes to go in the game.  On the last play of the game with the red team (who was down at one time by 3 touchdowns ) trailing by four, and on 4th and goal from the 20 yard line Tommy throws one up for Division one Northern Illinois football player Lincoln Howard and he leaped over 3 defenders and somehow comes down with it.  I still can’t believe he caught it and then proceeded to dunk it over the goalpost in celebration.  How the red team won over the younger speedier Black team is beyond me.  This is typical of the Turkey bowl.  It always seems to come down to the final drive.   John Elway has nothing on Tommy Krenz and this years’ game winning Drive.

25th Turkey Bowl 2012

Kevy Rogers and I took turns coming in and out of the game.  I had a gimpy hip and hamstring and Kevy pulled his quad on a kickoff.  Kevy can still kick the ball like he did in high school.  Terry B played great Zone defense and his kids participated this year and look for them to be future Chieftain stars.  Rollo was on fire for the black team until big Lincoln someow snatched one of his passes and got the red team back in this year’s game.  We were suppose to play the Turkey Bowl in Las Vegas this year but I had an assumption that we would have perfect conditions and we sure did.   61 degrees with a 10 mph wind from the south.  As Garth form the Valley Wire took the traditional post game picture the wind seemed to shift a bit and I noticed the temp may have gone down a few degrees.  Never mind the weather as a bunch of us got in our cars and headed down to my clinic to get worked on and do some ARP wave since we were all dinged up.  No major injuries this year which is great news.  We’ve had quite a few broken collar bones, wrist, ribs, etc, and many concussions and pulled muscles.  The field was in great shape and it felt like we were playing in September.  Sure was nice not landing hard on a frozen field.

As we have completed 25 Turkey Bowls looking back we’ve had over 200 different people play in this event.  Thank you to all who have played and now it is time to start turning it over to the sons and grandsons to keep the Turkey Bowl alive and well for another 25 years.

Dr. E

p.s.  61 degrees when Turkey Bowl ended at noon and 8 hours later we had 22 degrees and a winter storm.  Sure was fun playing the Turkey bowl in T-shirts and shorts and not snowmobile suits.  Lincoln Howard this years MVP.  Look for Lincoln to be starting tight end for Northern Illinois football team next year.  They are currently rated #22 in the country.

Do this one thing to jump start your metabolism

It was another incredible weather weekend. I with it stayed like this all year. Also, a great football wekend. I was busy friday , saturday, and sunday doing football games with Riley and his buddies. We also got Connor his first car. It’s a 1992 Lexus LS 400 and it’s got a ton of miles on it but rides great and is in mint condition. He’s very happy but knows if he doesn’t get B’s in school that means no keys. I sure hope he takes better care of his care than I do. I’ve been good about taking care of the caddy but the aurora I just kind of let it go after 150,000. Here is Connor and his proud new old car.

This is the one thing you must do if you are going to lose weight. You must have a protein based breakfast to start your day. That means within 30 minutes of rising in the morning you need to fuel your body. I recommend protein to be the base of your morning breakfast. Eggs if you are not sensitive to them, meat, chicken, fish are great sources of protein. I love to add veggies since they are packed full of anti-oxidants, minerals and vitamins. No cereal, milk, or any junk food like donuts. Basically you can eat the same meals 3x a day then snack between meals with a little stone fruit or berries, nuts and seeds. This will help regulate your blood sugar and keep your adrenals from being even more stressed. If you want to jump start your metabolism don’t skip meals, and keep your food more protein based and add a ton of veggies and you will be on your way. Add some resistance type of exercises such as body weight exercises and watch your body change. If you have a goal of losing weight, lets say for example you want to lose 50 pounds I’d prefer you to lose 1 pound a week for a year instead of a quick loss of weight and then plateau.

Did you get your exercise in today? I posted that statement on facebook a few weeks ago and got a ton of responses. Many of you are doing your workouts. I’m telling you, you do not have to do tons of cardio to burn fat and get in great shape. Body weight exercises such as bootcamp which I do every m,w,f, at Wild River Fitness is an incredible 45 minute workout. Come join me. You’ll have to get up early though because it starts at 5:45am.

The Chieftains are 4-0 in football. Watch out Durand on friday night. How about those Gophers being 3-0. Their first big test of the year comes up this Saturday home against the Syracuse Orangemen. The Badgers are struggling. They should have lost that game against Utah State. Come on Big 10, you have a reputation to defend.

Until next time, eat a protein based breakfast, get some weight bearing resistance exercises, and count your blessings. Dr. E

5 secrets to optimize your health right now.

A patient asked me the other day what are the top 5 things they could do for their health if they don’t have any symptoms, just wanted to improve on their health. The first thing I said was she must be doing pretty good because most people are on some form of medication for a lifestyle type of condition like statin drugs for high cholesterol, blood pressure meds, prilosec for ant-acid, and a list of things I could go on and on. Here is my list, short and simple, and incredibly beneficial.

1. Get adjusted to keep your spine align and keep the neurology of your body-mind working optimally. I see bad degenerative spines all day long and trust me, you don’t want to go there.

2. Clean diet. I tell everyone to go gluten free. Grains are inflammatory to your body. You want to deflame your body by eating much more veggies. No breads, pastas, cut the dairy while you are at it. Your aches and pains will diminish and you will lose weight big time if needed.

3. Move your body. Combine strength training with aerobic activities. I’m 50 and I’ve cut back on the endurance and do fat busting resistance body weight exercises and I’m telling you 12 minutes of those 3x week is a hell of a great workout.

4. Keep your mind body functioning optimally by getting adjusted on a regular basis. If you do the above the adjustments really pay off. We all have stress and a great de-stressor is an adjustment.

5. Count your blessings. Be thankful and grateful knowing how blessed we all are everyday. Also, get on a good fish oil. We have some great fih oils at our clinic. Everyone needs these essential fatty acids. Your brain is made up of fat and you better be getting this form of fat in your diet.

Football is here

The Osceola football team had their first scrimmage and they looked pretty good. We will find out friday night when they play my alma mater. Kids are getting dinged up this time of year and adjustments are great for recovery. The volleyball team looks good. The new coach is working them hard. Look for the Chieftains to have a great year. The cross country, tennis, girls golf and boys soccer are looking good. Get out and support these kids.

Congrats to the Osceola Braves for an outstanding and entertaining year. Although they didn’t win at state they can be proud of themselves. Having the Braves here is a great family and community event . Thanks for a great year.

We are having great results with our weight loss and peripheral neuropathy patients. Ok, school is right around the corner. The MN state fair starts this week, and football games start this fridy. It doesn’t get much better than that. Until next time, be disciplined and follow my top 5 above and you will be heading towards optimal health! Dr. E

Is your health as healthy as the the Packer offense?

You know how much I love sports, especially football in the fall. This past weekend was a huge sports weekend in the twin cities. The Gophers had homecoming against the Cornhuskers of Nebraska. I’ve got to be honest, it was the most boring game I’ve been to since they opened the new stadium. Check out the picture below and tell me what’s wrong with the picture?

What's wrong with tis picture?

The Super bowl Champs Green Bay Packers game in to the Metrodome and beat the Vikings but the Vikings played great, especially rookie QB Christian Ponder. Everyone was pondering how Ponder would do, but he rose to the occasion and played admirably. I know Ponder is a very intelligent guy and I know he had prepared him self mentally and physically for this moment. If we would prepare our mind-body like pro athletes prepare for a football game I bet we’d be a lot healthier. Getting your health and keeping your health takes repetition, consistency, and intensity. Everyday we have a choice on how we want our life to be, somedays things happen and it can really through one for a loop. We all fumble in life on occasions, that’s life, it’s how we handle the next opportunity that really matters.The Packers got down right away and their offense didn’t panic. Rodgers was a cool cat out there carving the Viking defense up and in the end the Packers actually got back to being a running team and ran the clock out with a couple of first downs. Just think how healthy we would be if we prepared like the Packers. Be a Champ today and prepare for a healthier you. I know you can.

Make it a great day!! Dr. E. p.s. Anyone lose sleep over the Hale Mary pass that beat the Badgers?
