More than just adjusting backs.

In my 26 years of being a Chiropractor I’ve seen a lot of different trends and in health I’m wandering if as a society we are any healthier?  One of the reasons I’ve been working my tail off attending many seminars focused on metabolic(how your organs are working), and neurological(how your brain and nervous system are working) is to help people finally get some answers for their health condition and for those who are not helped by other health care providers.  This takes a ton of work and I sure wish I would have had this education and insight back in Chiro school.  There are more sick people now then there were when I was in Chiro school.  People are living longer but the quality of life may not be as good.  I just read a study saying how providers of all kinds are not ready to care for the aging population.  It’s the quality of life that matters more than longevity.  Can you do the things you want to in life?  If you can’t then you need to do something about it now.  That’s where I can assist you. Find out what’s not working right and get it going again.

There are answers.  If you do have a chronic disease such as diabetes, peripheral neuropathy, an autoimmune disease such as hashimoto’s thyroiditis, chronic neck or back pain, and the list can go on and on.  You really do not have to suffer.  Do I have all the answers, no, but if you are going to the same doctor for 10 years and aren’t doing any better than something isn’t working.   I guess that could be the definition of insanity, doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results.

You have to have good brain health in order for the rest of your body to work well.  I do a complete neuro evaluation and then look at you metabolically and then put it all together and come up with a game plan to get you on track to better health.  Yes you will have to do some changing with your lifestyle especially the diet , which can be challenging.  But if I do food sensitivity testing and you come back for a food that you should not be eating and you don’t stop it then you will never ever get better.  Doing the right tests are very important.  The gut barrier testing is a great test.  If you have barrier issues in your gut creating a leaky gut then you are probably having a leaky brain also and have gut issues and brain fog issues also.  A barrier is something that protects you from the outside or things from getting in.  You have a gut lining that protects things from getting into your blood stream and running rampid throughout  your body.  If this is breached it can really cause problems.  That’s why healing the barriers in your gut is of so much importance.  80% of your immune system lies in your gut.  If you have poor immune health then you have probable gut issues.  Wuth the standard american diet most people are going to have gut issues even if they are not symptomatic.  A good thign you can for gut health is to go gluten free.

If you want more information on my neuro and metabolic portion of my practice just email me at and I can have you fill out the metabolic assessment form which gives me a good look into how all your organs are functioning, and the neurological assessment form to seee how your brain is working.  Then we can sit dowm and go over these forms and how it effects your overall health and well being.

Ok, got rained on big time at Gopher homecoming this past saturday.  It was great to see all the guys I played with.  Bob Sudler flew in form Miami for the weekend.  Always great to see Bob.  Here are a couple of pics from the game.

    Hitting the sweet spot in life doesn't seem to happen as much as we all want it to in life. I always tell patients that health and life are a lot alike, you are never always at the top and never always at the bottom, but somewhere in between.
