September is one of my favorite months.
When you have 4 seasons, this is the time to put the garden to rest, observe the leaves changing color, enjoy the beautiful smells and prepare for winter. Be prepared for what you know is coming anyway. I’m canning tomatoes and other things, ordering meat from local farmers to freeze, etc. How about you?

What do chiropractic and the summer have in common?
Both are good for you.
Go to the beach, the park, or your backyard for exercise and lots of sun (no sunscreen please, just don’t burn). In the summer your body gets enough vitamin D and other sunshine vitamins/benefits to last you all winter. Remember, your body can store vitamin D, unlike most other vitamins.
But there’s more. Go out for walks and hikes with friends and loved ones; go swimming and have parties. Having friends and relatives over is very healthy – loneliness kills. So don’t think you aren’t doing something wonderful when you hang out and socialize. Remember, backyard parties are good for you too as well as your chiropractor (so don’t forget to invite us).
STOP taking VITAMINS!
Synthetic (made in a lab) and isolated vitamins – not in a complex or the way nature intended in a whole foods, create nutritional deficiencies. Speaking of “isolated’, some of the worst “health” foods you can take are protein bars and powders made from isolated soy and whey protein. Rice and pea proteins are not far behind. Why? Because they are produced at high temperatures and therefore destroy the inherent enzymes in the food. Fortified cereals are just as bad and additionally they have fragmented IRON added in which your body cannot assimilate. Calcium (carbonate) is another damaging product many women think they need to take to prevent osteoporosis. Do not take calcium – it contributes to damage in arteries and kidney stones. I do, however, recommend the bioavailable form – CALCIUM LACTATE with the addition of essential fatty acid in CATAPLEX F as a natural sunscreen from Standard Process. That’s all I use.
If you are interested in adding nutrients to your deficient SAD – Standard American Diet- I recommend Magnesium in all the available forms found in Easy-Mag (Standard Process).
If you take vitamin D3, you should have the active as well as the storage form of this hormone checked in your next lab requisition- please make sure you are adding vitamin A as well. Most people are not aware they work together. Where do you get vitamin A? Liver, egg yolks, grass-fed butter and cod liver oil. If you need more information on how much, when and whether you need to supplement your diet, please reach out to me.
Your spine (also called your spinal column or “backbone”) is made up of 24 movable vertebrae (spinal bones). On the bottom is a triangular bone made called the sacrum and underneath that is your tailbone or coccyx.
Your spine should be straight from the front, and from the side it should have natural curves.
You have three main curves – your neck or cervical curve, your mid back or thoracic curve and your lower back or lumbar curve.
Why do you need curves? Curves give your spine strength. A straight spine is much weaker than a curved spine.
What makes up the curves? Between your vertebra are discs that give your spine much of its curve and also act as shock absorbers so every step you take doesn’t shake you up.
Are your curves not curvy enough (straight) too curvy or just right? There are a number of ways to tell. One is with a posture analysis using the doctor’s hands, using a photographic analysis or an x-ray analysis. Want to know more? Ask us.
Chiropractic for infants? They have low back pain? Of course not! Infants need chiropractic care to ensure that the stress of gestation, labor and delivery has not damaged their spines and delicate structure.
Infants can be damaged by falls – statistics tell us that nearly half of all babies have had a fall from a height (off the changing table, off the bed, down the stairs etc.).
Chiropractic care helps ensure a healthy baby with better resistance to disease, a better ability to discharge toxins, a better ability to absorb nutrients and overall better body function.
Also, correcting subluxations may help a baby who is ill return to health more quickly and more comfortably.
There are many case histories of chiropractic helping children with all kinds of conditions – asthma, colic, constipation, difficulty breastfeeding, ear infections, autism spectrum disorder, vision and hearing disorders, neurological conditions- no matter what conditions babies may have, chiropractic care can help them grow into healthy, happy children.

Q. Do chiropractors have MD degrees?
A. Chiropractors have DC degrees, conferred by a chiropractic college. A major difference between chiropractic and medicinal education is that while MDs are studying drugs, vaccination and surgery, chiropractors are study subluxation analysis and correction.
Back to School support
Every year approaching a new school year for parents brings a sense of stress. The hustle and bustle of back-to-school shopping, schedule shifts and all things that come with a new school year can make this time of year challenging. Did you know that essential oils can make stressful and chaotic times easier to cope with?
Here are three ways essential oils can make this transition smoother for both parents and students!
1. Lavender essential oil is a great aid for those who struggle with their sleep patterns and schedules being disrupted, altered and most likely lessened with a new school year. Getting to bed earlier is cruel for those extra early mornings of getting you and your little ones out of the house prepared and fully rested. Applying lavender on the bottoms of you or your child’s feet before bed is a great way to calm the body and mind to ease into a good night’s rest. Adding lavender to a diffuser right before bedtime increases the ability to fall asleep faster and sleep deeper.
2.Frankincense essential oil does wonders for the brain! When that to-do list is feeling long and overwhelming, using frankincense in a roller bottle and applying it to your wrists, back of the neck or chest will support your mind and body with focus. Adding it to your diffuser and running it in the morning before your day begins will support you in feeling more awake and ready for the hectic day ahead of you.
3.Using Doterra’s immunity essential oil blend “On Guard” or Young Living’s immunity blend “Thieves” in your home approaching a new school year is a great way to boost you and your little one’s immune system to help protect both of you from becoming sick. It’s known that by diffusing “On Guard” for twenty minutes a day is known to boost immune support.
Dr. Weston A. Price is regarded by many as the greatest nutritionist who ever lived. He founded the National Dental Association, which became the research section of the American Dental Association.
In the late 1920s Dr. Price and his wife Florence embarked on a world tour of indigenous people. They traveled Indiana Jones-style by prop planes, steamships, canoes, automobiles, horse drawn carriages, and on foot, visiting hundreds of villages in 14 countries on 5 continents.
All these isolated cultures had two things in common:
