They’re not sexy. You can’t see them on the beach. Most people don’t know their names. But when properly trained, they can dramatically reduce the risk of spinal pain and injuries. They’re your core muscles – those small muscles in your pelvis, lower back, hips, and abdomen that glue you together. Strong core muscles provide […]

Think about how your life has changed to reduce the risk of exposure to the coronavirus. Physical distancing. Frequent and thorough handwashing. Working from home. Virtual schooling. More online shopping. Curbside pickup of groceries. Whether you did any or all of these things for a period of time or continue doing them to this day, […]

I’ve always believed in responding to adversity with gratitude. But I can’t remember a year in the history of Natural Healthcare Center that has brought more adversity than 2020. And I’ve experienced plenty over the years. In 2010, a blizzard dropped 36 inches of snow that left us without power for two weeks. In 2012, […]

I seldom use the term “obesity” in conversations with patients. Although “clinical obesity,” “morbid obesity,” and “overweight” are diagnosis codes that doctors use in notes, society has become too frivolous with those terms. They can easily be misconstrued as demeaning or judgmental. I talk about body composition. Part of body composition is body fat, along […]

Dr. Jeffrey Bland is one of my heroes. He’s the father of functional medicine, which provides the foundation and inspiration for our approach to patient care at Natural Healthcare Center. Dr. Bland recently wrote an article about the challenges of COVID-19 – not for society as a whole, but for each of us as individuals. […]

When I mention toxification, and the need for detoxification, most people think of obesity and lack of energy. They think of bad skin and bad breath. They focus on how harmful toxins affect physical and nutritional health. The impact of toxification on the brain, however, is often overlooked, especially for children during their developmental years. […]

I’ve had people ask me why I’m not posting videos on social media about how to exercise while staying at home. They ask why I’m not trying to sell more nutritional supplements. The reality is that COVID-19 hasn’t changed my vision for Natural Healthcare Center. For more than 30 years, I’ve been working to reverse […]

It’s a scientific fact that disease starts at the cellular level. Cancer and tumors are the result of abnormal cell division. Inflammation inside an artery that creates plaque is caused by unhealthy cells. How you feel and function is determined by the health of the 20-30 trillion cells in the human body. This is why […]

Health factors

Why is it that our health takes a backseat to just about everything else in our lives? When you feel physically ill, you still go to work. Taking a day off due to illness is almost unheard of now that most people have the ability to work from home. And you can forget about unplugging […]

Man visiting his girlfriend in the hospital

In my previous blog post, I discussed the process of diagnosing the precise causes of the intense pain, neurological weakening, and muscle atrophy I was experiencing, and then determining that surgery was the best and only option. One of the most challenging parts of this entire experience for me was the early stage of recovery. […]
