Digestive System, Overall Health Connected

Some of you may have heard or read things about the connection between the digestive system and the brain. Others might find that a bit odd, but the connection is real. An unhealthy digestive tract can affect many other parts of the body. We rely on our digestive systems to extract the vitamins and nutrients

Be Mindful of Your Wallet, Purse

It happens every day. A male patient visits the office and before lying on the table to get adjusted, he takes his wallet out of his back pocket. This wallet looks as if he has a year’s worth of receipts in it! Or a female patient sits her handbag on the side table when she’s

Neck Pain in Kids is Becoming More Common

It is becoming increasingly common that I see teenagers in the office who are suffering from neck pain. Upon reviewing x-rays of the patients, I see that the typical curve in the neck is reversing and their disks are resembling that of a person in their 70s!

Naps Are Not Just for Kids

More than 30 years ago, Robert Fulghum wrote a book entitled All I Really Need to Know I Learned in Kindergarten. I’m not sure if this is in the book or not, but one thing that you learned in kindergarten remains useful throughout your life. Taking a nap in kindergarten, not sure if they even

What We Actually Have is Sick Care

I have to shake my head and chuckle a bit when I hear news about Congress discussing yet another health care bill. I don’t argue that this is a system in our country that needs desperate help. However, what we have in the U.S. is actually sick care, not health care. We learn to seek

Back to School: Backpacks, Shoes and Breakfast

I can’t believe it, and I’d bet parents of school-aged children really can’t believe that it’s time to go back to school! Here are a few things to think about as you’re shopping for stocking up for the school year: Backpacks (you had to know that was coming!): Overstuffing backpacks can cause a great deal
