You are not alone.

You are not alone when you feel the pain of grief. I was at my good friend and skiing buddy Dave Landgraf’s funeral this past saturday and it was a tough day for me and everyone who knew him. Dave was hit while riding his bike south of Hayward by a distracted driver. What an incredible testimonial to his life when over 3000 people showed up for his funeral. Dave is the king of the American Birkibeiner skiing all 38 of then and being a national and world champion in his age group. Dave taught PHY ED in Bloomer for 30 years and was their head track coach for over 25 years. Dave will be truly missed and another reminder to live your life with no regrets.

Osceola was put back on the map this past weekend when Casey Danielson age 16 made it to the quarterfinals of the Women’s U.S. amateur golf tournament in Rhode Island. I watched her match live on the golf channel and she fought a valiant battle losing 1 up. Congrats to Casey. I think she is going to have a great pro career someday.

After the funeral I quick drove over to Bloomington to catch a seminar on CORTISOL MELATONIN CIRCADIAN RHYTHM PHYSIOLOGY. Cortisol is a stress hormone produced by your adrenal glands and goes to every single cell in your body. Your cortisol levels should be highest in the morning and lowest at night. If it’s low in the morning you are not going to have any energy and if high at night you probably have a hard time getting to sleep and or staying asleep. If your cortisol levels are high then your melatonin levels are low. That is why you hear of people taking melatonin to sleep. The most important thing to find out is what i s driving your cortisol levels to high or to low? It could be many different things from infection, to bad gut function, over stressed in your life, and many other factors which need to be investigated. I highly encourage you to come in and get a Adrenal stress index test done. It’s an inexpensive saliva test which you take and do at home, send it in and we get results back in 10-14 days.

Ok, school starts in a couple weeks so It’s that time of year to gett he kids in and get their spine and nervous system checked out. Fall sports have already started and the big rivalry game between St. Croix Falls and Osceola is this friday night at St. Croix.

Congrats go out to the Osceola braves for qualifying for the state Baseball tournament in Coon Valley this weekend. What a classic 15 run game they won against the Haugen nights last friday. Go Braves!!!

Until next time, go cheer your favorite team and take daily action to be the healthiest you can possibly be! Dr. E
