Two years ago, after losing strength in my right arm and chest and experiencing severe neurological pain, I had an MRI for the first time in my life. This revealed that herniated discs in my lower cervical spine were causing a neurological impingement, which was made worse by a condition called congenital stenosis, or a […]

Seven years ago this month, I wrote a blog article titled “The Tragic Result of Sweeping Mental Health Under the Rug.” Robin Williams had just committed suicide. I pleaded with my readers to take mental health seriously. A couple weeks ago, I saw Simone Biles, one of the world’s greatest athletes who was sexually assaulted […]

I’ve often had patients, friends, and business consultants ask me why we don’t put before-and-after pictures on the Natural Healthcare Center website. They ask why we don’t post videos of chiropractic adjustments on YouTube. Someone once said to me, “I watched this video of a chiropractor on YouTube and the crack during the adjustment was […]

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 […]
