Reducing Golf injuries

Golf Swing

Golf has become a power game. It’s all about power and distance. Statistically, most people drive the ball less than 200 yards, but they get a big case of ‘distance envy’ when they see the pros on television reaching 300 yards. Once they start trying to match what the pros are doing, injuries are bound to occur simply because they have not conditioned their body to swing that hard. Golf-specific training and conditioning are the best ways to improve your…

Wellness Reflections: Mid-life Crisis

Mid Life Crisis

Midlife crisis is a term coined in 1965 by Elliott Jaques stating a time where adults come to realize their own mortality and how much time is left in their life, as noted in Wikipedia. Men tend to experience this event at the ages of 40 and 60 and women experience their version at the ages of 30 and 50. For a few people the fear of an impending death approaching sparks this crisis; for most it is actually a…

Liver and Gallbladder Flush

The liver and gallbladder flush is an important detoxifying agent which will help restore normal functional capacity of these organs in people suffering from chronic-degenerative diseases.  If you want certainty that this protocol really worked its best to have a diagnostic ultrasound sometime before and then after to verify that stones were in fact expelled. People have been successful for decades by following these directions:  through Saturday noon, you should drink as much apple juice or apple cider as the…

Wellness Mapping

Here is an interesting health coach / life coaching tool helpful in prognosticating your future health. The purpose of any life coaching tool is to create awareness, and the ensuing impetus to cause someone to make positive changes in their life. Demosthenes proclaimed, “Nothing is easier than self-deceit.” Very often, the future consequences of what you are doing today begins with the fact that you are believing things to be true that are not true. Why do we do that?…

Insulin Resistance is Caused by Fat in Muscles.

The WHO (World Health Organization) has warned that Diabetes Type 2 (caused by improper lifestyles) has reached epidemic proportions; some regions of the world at greater risk than others, mostly due to geographic and economic factors. The focus on Diabetes by western Medicine is to manage blood glucose levels.

Living a “Balanced” Life

Life is good… until it isn’t. When things happen, especially unexpected things, we are out of our normal order, we are disturbed, feel out of balance and for many these are stressful times. Life is out of balance! What happened? Life was strolling along just fine but then an event took place that takes us “out” of normal order. So life’s experiences tells us that we need to always maintain a balanced life. I agree that life is better when we…

About Pillows and Mattresses

Why is this topic important to your wellbeing? Health is preserved when cells regenerate overnight. A good night sleep is essential to your health.It is true that some people may not use a pillow at all but unless there are compelling reasons otherwise, we need to sleep on just one pillow. Two or more pillows will cause the neck to lose its lordotic curve (lordosis: forward natural bending) so my advice is to lose the habit and select the one better pillow for…

What is the Proper Sleeping Position?

As a Doctor of Chiropractic, a spinal expert, it is very common for people to ask me the question: “What’s the best sleeping position?” The short answer is to sleep on your back with some right and left side sleeping but never on your stomach.

Custom Foot Orthotics

Custom Foot Orthotics aka Spinal Pelvic Stabilizers Normally we don’t think about getting shoe inserts but some of us have bad feet and should consider what a custom-made foot orthotic can do for you. What do I mean by bad feet? If you experience foot pain, for starters; but even if your feet don’t hurt they could cause knee or hip problems due to the poor 3-arch support our feet need to have the necessary support for the body’s frame, especially in motion.…
