Master your own health

Watching the Masters golf tournament is one of my favorite sporting events every year.  What I love is how the tournament always comes down to the final day and final 9 holes.  This year was a little anti-climatic since no one really came out and challenged the winner Bubba Watson with eagles or birdies on the back 9.

Golfing is the one sport where total responsibility lies on the golfer.  Every decision, shot, and end result lies on the split second dynamics of the golf swing and contact through the ball.  Everyone thought Bubba was crazy to go for it in 2 on number 15 when he had trees in front of him, but that’s Bubba, he goes for everything.  I love seeing golf like Bubba, small town kid who swings from the heels and defies all traditional fundamentals of golf.  He’s an out of the box golfer who hits towering drives and has fun on the course.  He’s never had a lesson, he’s a total feeel player who takes full responsibility for his golf swing.

Our health is our own responsibility.  If we all took total responsibility for our health we would all take much better care of our selves.  If you think your insurance company is going to take care of a poor lifestyle forget about it.  Drugs aren’t going to do it either.  Good daily choices in what you eat, how you move, and how you think are what are going to make the most difference.  I can adjust you until the cows come home but if you keep polluting your body it won’t make much difference.  Take charge of your health right now this very moment and start taking action today for your choices.  We will both be glad you did.

I got my first golf round of golf in on Saturday.  It’s interesting how I hit the ball as good as I ever have, but the seven 3 putts I had destroyed another good ball striking round.  Drive for show and putt for gold.  I better work on my putting.

Tax day tomorrow.  Wow, interesting how I haven’t heard any patients talk about taxes.  Maybe that’s a good thing?

More snow!  I guess that’s just April.  I feel for the track, tennis, baseball, soccer, and softball teams who have to play in this cold. If you get a chance go over to the football field and track and give it a shot.  What a great complex.  I’ve been using both the field and track and what a nice soft surface to run on.  Running sprints and adding fat burning exercises such as burpees, jumping jacks, mountain climbers, kettle ball swings, planks, are all a great way to burn fat, and get fit and healthy.

OHS, great place to run.

That’s it for this week.  Don’t forget about leaky gut syndrome workshop next monday night 6:30 my clinic.  Call and reserve your spot.  It’s free!!

Happy Birthday goes out to my son Riley Edling who turned 17 yesterday!  Dr. E

    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 remembe
