Would you do this for your spouse?

Anyone who has been or is in marriage and has kids understands the complexities of what a marriage can bring both good and bad. What can complicate things even more is if one spouse isn’t healthy and isn’t getting the support that they need at home. This is an unfortunate but common thing that I see when dealing with people that come in to my clinic. They may have some form of chronic metabolic, neurologic, or structural problem that affects their ability to be who they really want to be. Add a spouse who has written them off or doesn’t understand and you have a dilemma which is hard to correct. I can do everything possible to help get someone’s health back and they do everything they can to get their health back which is great, but without the love and support at home it is going to be tough to keep their mental and physical health.

When ever their is a physical problem the spirit also gets hurt. Having 30 years of this is going to take time. Investing in your health so you can have the life of your dreams is imperative in this day and age. Life is to short to spend most of it not feeling well and feeling like a prisoner of your own body. I may not have all the answers but I will leave no stone unturned in helping you regain your health.

I missed Wannigan days this year. I can’t believe I didn’t make it up there. Mary and I had a great weekend, we stayed over night in the cities and had a blast. I’m fighting a bit of a summer cold so I’ve been burning the midnight oil to much. no sugar, more sleep, and really watch the diet. Watch out for St.Croix Falls athletic teams in a few years. They have some stellar athletes on their 8th grade baseball team. Osceola beat them by one last weekend. I look forward to watching these kids play in high school. Nothing like a good St. Croix-Osceola rivalry. Until next time, keep the communication open and your past doesn’t have to define your future. Dr. E

Osceola Jr. High baseball champs.

  • Should you go gluten free? Why, and how.

    When I talk to patients about going gluten free and giving up some of the foods they truly cherish it can be difficult for them at times.  I try to explain to them that it is not only for people who have been diagnosed with celiac's disease which is a terrible condition where the villi of the stoma
  • I'm Not Dead Yet!

    The last 9 months have been a real challenge for my family dealing with my fathers poor health.  He's been in Hospice for 3 weeks now and after a family vigil last weekend we thought that was it.  Somehow my dad who has horrible diabetes is still hanging in there.  This morning I told him when he

     This past year has been a great year for me.  I got reunited with old Gopher football players which was a thrill for me again.  Mom got through her bypass and is doing great now.  Riley had a great summer in baseball and Connor is swimming hard year round, and Mary is still enjoying working wi
  • Are You Toxic and Insufficient, or Pure and Sufficient?

    The grad parties are over and now I can get clean again. My discipline wasn't the best over the weekend and I tell you, it's much easier to keep your diet clean and feel great then eat poorly and feel like crap. I had a conversation yesterday with a patient and she couldn't understand why she was
  • Not being able to do what you want to do is no darn fun.

    I hope all of you had an incredible 4th of July weekend.  It sure was a busy one for me.  It started early friday morning with the Siren 5 k run.  I did a 19:40 which was pretty good.  That's 3 sub 20 minute 5k's this year.  Interesting how I wasn't running that fast 5 years ago.  The only thi
