Wellness Reflections: Stop Tolerating!

Stop Tolerating

The definition of toleration has two different meanings: 1. to recognize and respect (i.e.: the rights, beliefs, or practices of others). 2. to allow without prohibiting or opposing; to permit (to put up with) So on one side we find that tolerating is an act of higher human quality, one of respect for one another’s differences; where we can agree to disagree. There is also the other more sinister side, the allowing of or permitting without opposing of behaviors by others…

Osteoporosis (D3 & Exercise VS Calcium and Hormones)


Mary is approaching her mid 40’s and is concerned about early menopause and its related osteoporosis so she fully expects that her MD will put her on hormone replacement therapy. That’s what conventional thinking tells us right? When a woman gets above 45 she will suffer osteoporosis from menopause. What if that is not true? What if osteoporosis has mostly nothing to do with the lowered estrogen levels that causes menopause? Long-term studies show that women who were athletic as teenage girls…

Nutritional Supplements

The Wellings live in a major urban center and unfortunately their city is one of the most polluted cities on the planet (no joke). Normally, if a person lives right with healthy food and regular exercise habits it is reasonable to expect that they can get by without having to take food supplements to stay healthy. That is not the case when a family lives where they are exposed to daily pollution. There are three reasons why we almost all need…

Red, itchy watering eyes, sinus congestion, post nasal drip, coughing and even skin reactions, etc. are commonplace signs of allergic reactions to something (an allergen) the body was exposed to, internally or externally. In technical terms an “allergen” is a foreign substance that stimulates an allergic reaction in the body. The reaction is mostly due to histamines in the body that over respond during an inflammation cycle. That is why over-the-counter medications that have anti-histamines are the common medications taken…

Chiropractic Focus – Asthma

Asthma Attack

When there is difficult or laborious breathing and it is not caused by an advanced lung disease such as TB or lung cancer, the most common diagnosis is Asthma, where the bronchial tubes (air pipes) close down and make normal breathing difficult. This is commonly seen in children but it can persist long into adult lives. Why do the air pipes close down? The family or ENT doctor will usually prescribe an inhaler that sends a steroid mist into the…

Chiropractic Focus – Neck Pain


Did you know that people have the same number of neck bones as a Giraffe? Yes it’s true. There are seven bones. In a previous blog I mentioned how the upper part of the neck is known as the “headache zone” and today we will discuss the other common problems related to misalignments of the seven bones in the neck. Pain in the neck comes from actual damage being reported to the brain in any of the tissues or structures of the…

Chiropractic Focus – Migraine Headaches

Migraine Headache

Christopher has been missing more school days because of his regular Migraines. There is concern over taking strong medications so the family looked into Chiropractic for an alternative solution. Migraine Headaches afflicts 8% of the population and women suffer this type of headache much more than men. Truth is a Migraine is not just a bad headache as many people think! It is a series of physiological events that occur in the body that concludes as a severe headache. Migraines…

Chiropractic in the Philippines – An Introduction

Chiropractic Angel

Almost every Filipino is well aware of prioritizing dental health. Getting their teeth cleaned, managed and sometimes restored. But when it comes to spinal health, the average Pinoy is often left in the dark. “Chiropractic in the Philippines? What is that?” Sad to say, many people no longer have their teeth or the need for a Dentist any more; but, last time we looked, people always have their spine. IMAGINE… what if there were NO DENTISTS in the Philippines? What…

Chiropractic Focus – Scoliosis

Scoliosis may be functional or congenital

The Welling family is having a fit, they just were told by the doctor that their daughter Anna has scoliosis! What is the cause and what is the cure? There are visions of the Hunch back of Notre Dame from in the movies and yet there doesn’t seem to be much of an explanation of why and what can be done. The typical are general stretches or exercises if mild and wearing a back brace in more advanced cases; then…
