It doesn’t get much better.

Summer is really the time of the year I enjoy because of the weather.  We folk up here love our four seasons and although we may bitch about the winter and the extremem cold we are very proud of our winters.  This past weekend was one of those remarkable summer weekends you can look back on when it’s 20 below in the winter.

I went down to the North South Shrine All-Star foootball game Saturday in Oshkosh to watch two of my patients play for the North team.  Mark Johnson from Osceola and Travis Shackelton from Baldwin Woodville played.  They both had outstanding games.  I’m very proud of them.  Mark will be going to UWRF and Travis to Stout to go to school and play football.

It was 34 years ago since I played in that game and I hadn’t been over there since then.  Interesting how some things had changed while others hadn’t changed a bit.  The campus is quite nice.  It’s a long drive to Oshkosh and back but it allowed Tucker Hazzard and I to visit two different campuses.  We stopped at UW-Stevens Point which is a very nice enviromentally friendly campus.  It had been 35 years since I’ve been to that campus and I was impressed  how clean and friendly it was.  I think the UW system is an excellent choice for our young graduating high school students to attend one of these fine institutions.

Summer is halfway done.  We are just a little over 30 days from the first high school football game, the NFL camps start this week.  It’s my favorite time of the year when football comes around.  I’m going to enjoy the hot weather for now but my favorite season is the fall when temps are perfect to workout in and the feel of football in the air is what I love.

Good  idea to get your kids in for a good spine and extremity check up before the fall sports start.  Once they start they put a lot on load on these kids and sometimes their bodies start breaking down.  Adjustments help decrease the load and allow for better recovery.  I’ve helped keep a lot of athletes going over the years and I love working with these kids in keeping them on the field.  Symptoms are generally the last thing to come on and if you can see a dysfunctional movement pattern or a restriction in joint motion and catch it early you can prevent a lot problems from developing down the road.

Remember to keep the diet clean.  A anti-inflammatory diet consisting of tons of vegtables, good fruits, and organic beef, chicken or fish is excellent.  I love adding coconut oil to the diet also.  Good fats are crucial for your body.  Fats like avocados are great.  Try one in a smoothie, it’s fantastic.  Another thing we do at home is have a big glass container of a gallon water, and then we cut up a bunch of limes and put in there with just a little teaspoon of grade A organic maple syrup for flavoring.  Just sip that all day and it’s a great natural detoxifier.  Getting out in the sun for some vitamin D is excellent for your body also.  You want to get as much of your body exposed as possible.  20 minutes or so when ever you can get out is good.  Everyone I check on blood work shows there Vitamin D to be deficient.

Take time to de-stress your mind and body.  Sleep is imperative in repairing your body.  I’ve got to get a good 8 hours a night.  I think young athletes need  even more sleep.  I know my son Riley needs a good 9 hours nightly.  The more you stress your mind-body the more sleep you need.

OK, that’s it, if you haven’t been in for adjustment for a time I’d love to be able to serve you.  If you have a chronic health issue which you are frustrated with or not getting answers give me a hollar.  My metabolic practice incorporates many lab tests which your regular doc typically will not test.

Make it a awesome incredible week!!!

The above pic is the 50 yard line on the new Osceola high school football field.   You may see me out there running the track or doing sprints and body weight exercises on the field.  This is open for public use.  Get out and use it!!  The track is very receptive to your body compared to the old track.

This field I feel is the most incredible facility in the state of Wisconsin.  What a great investment for our kids and our community.

    Wow, what a great week and weekend I had.  It was highlighted by my friend Bob Sudler who came up from Miami for business and was able to come up and spend some time with Mary and I in the St. Croix Valley.  Bob's a great guy and I'm so appreciative that he called me a year ago for the Gopher reun
  • Hitting your sweet spot in life.

    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. If you are having challenges and feel like you are at t
