The mindset of being healthy.

Gophers took down the Boilermakers!!

I was thinking how important a good mindset is with anything in life.

I see in practice some people who feel old age is something that just happens and you are suppose to feel bad and not be able to move and take a boat load of pills.

I’ve got my work cut out trying to educate you about your body’s ability to heal.  It doesn’t have to be that hard.  Get out and move your body, eat a really clean anti-inflammatory diet, and don’t live in fear.

I always say the power that made the body heals the body.

Medicine works great if you have a real crisis or emergency, but when it comes to getting and keeping you healthy that’s another thing.

Investing in your health is one of the most important things you can do.

I buy organic food, I buy 2 new pair of running shoes every spring, I workout a good 4-5 days a week, I get adjusted weekly, I get a massage weekly, I pray daily and count my blessings in good and bad times.

Being healthy is what God intended us to be, not sick and prematurely old.

I’m hoping and trusting I’ll be skiing Birkies when I’m in my 80’s.  I’d like to continue working out with the football team every summer as long as I can.  I’d love to walk 18 holes until I absolutely can’t walk anymore.

I said at the thyroid workshop last monday night that the greatest threat to one’s health is the belief that someone else or something else will take care of you.  My job is to help lead and guide you to a better way of being.  You have to put the work in to it like anything important and that you value in life.

I see people transform their lives daily.  It all starts with a mindset that you can get healthy again if you’ve lost your health, and when you get it back it’s a good idea to keep doing the steps that got you healthy.

Well we had a tough game friday night with New Richmond losing 10-0.  A very hard hitting game it was.  A penalty here, a bad bounce there, not able to convert three 4th and ones and it could have been a whole different outcome.  That’s sports.

Now we have to play Rice Lake and they will be a challenge.  The first thing I thought was that we may get killed, then I had to shift my mindset and just because they play all division 1 schools doesn’t mean we can’t compete and if we play mistake free football you never know.  I’m sure they will be heavy favorites, but I can go back over the years and look at huge upsets that have occurred.  The first one that comes to mind is when Phi Slamma Jamma Houston Cougars got beat by NC State in the 1983 NCAA basketball tournament.  I couldn’t believe it then and still after 31 years hard to believe they got beat.  How about Appalachian state going into the big house of Michigan and beating them in 2007.  How about NDSU coming in 2 years ago and destroying the Gophers.

A bunch of the players were over Saturday afternoon getting worked on and they expressed concern about the upcoming game.  I told them to just have a really good week and just keep competing like they have been.  We only had one game where we didn’t play well and that was against Somerset.  They have noting to lose and everyting to gain.  Relax and enjoy the week and lets go up there and smack htem around friday night!!

I’ll be doing another thyroid workshop next monday 6:30 at our clinic.  We had a full house for the last one.  I only have room for 9 people.

Make it a fantastic week and go out and live live to the max!!!

Proud parents.

Great seeing my old football buddies Bob Sudler, Joe Weipert, and Lonnie Farrow at homecoming.  Always great seeing them, and a huge win for the Gophers!!

  • Do this, not that.

    Fall is officially here.  I love those early fall mornings when you wake up and can see the frost on the roof and see it on the ground. It was a great weekend to get out and about with this great weather.  I did most of the 25 k trail run through Rock Creek saturday morning.  Boy, was that a c
