Dog days of summer

The Romans in ancient ti mes celebrated the “Dog days of summer ” from July 24th thru August 24th. I just googled dog days of summer and on wikipedia it came out with some fascinating history about the dog days of summer. Well the hot hot humid dog days are here. I’m looking for a brief break with the heat and the humidity this weekend when buddies form high school will be coming over. Grilling in lower humidity is much more fun. remember to drink a ton of water during the dog days and if you are out working out get your workouts done early.

I haven’t put a post out for a couple weeks. I first got really sick, just 4 days of bad flu like symptoms. That is the first time in 20 years I’ve taken time of because of illness. I’m not used to getting sick and can’t imagine people who have chronic sickness. I do not like being dependent on others but it was nice having Mary help me out for a few days. My energy is back and it was so great getting adjusted when I felt so bad. Chiro adjustments are one of the best things you can do when you are sick. They activate your immune system and all your achy joints will feel much better.

I’ve have a weight loss program that is really geared to address the underlying causes of weight gain. Everyone I’ve seen does not eat breakfast. A protein based breakfast is very important to keeping your blood sugars regulated and not adding more stress to your adrenal glands which produce a stress hormone called cortisol. Eating periodically throughout the day is crucial also. This weight loss/health restoration program works great but you have to be completely dedicated to transforming your life. I can show you how, but you have to have the discipline to do exactly what is necessary. For some it’s easy, for others it is a complete change of thought process that must occur because you are eating the wrong foods, wrong times, aren’t exercising, etc. So this program will transform your life. If interested just send me an email back to see if you even qualify for this specialized form of care.

All the high school sports start in 2 weeks. My son Riley is starting his sophomore year in football and he’s been working hard as the other student athletes have with the OHS bigger, faster, stronger program. We didn’t have that when I was in school. We kept in pretty decent shape playing baseball and hoops but I’ll never forget those dog days of summer 2 a days with Coach O’Donnell. I’d be sore sore and would dread those bear crawls and monkey rolls. I still struggle doing those at bootcamp. Those first 2 weeks of high school football are the worst. If you can get through that you can get through anything.

That’s it for this week. Hope you are all well and keep making great choices with your health. The discipline you have now will pay off when you are older. Dr. E p.s. Enjoy the olympics!!

    You are not alone when you feel the pain of grief. I was at my good friend and skiing buddy Dave Landgraf's funeral this past saturday and it was a tough day for me and everyone who knew him. Dave was hit while riding his bike south of Hayward by a distracted driver. What an incredible testimon

    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.

    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.
