  • Three types of Stress
    Every day we deal with multiple levels of stress. I do think post COVID, there's a lot more stress than we ever had before. Current research suggests that between 75 and 90% of all doctor visits today are related to stress related illnesses. Elevated stress levels have been linked to many common health problems today which include asthma, diabetes, heart disease and obesity heart disease to name a few. So where does all this stress come from? There are three different types of stress and each one affects our body in a different way. Read more
  • So what is Colic?
    Colic is defined as the inability to comfort a crying young child or baby that exhibits periodic fussiness that can last up to hours or even days. This colic is characterized by a loud piercing cry, tightened or tensed stomach muscles, flexed legs and clenched fingers with the inability to try to calm down. In general it starts about three weeks of age and can last up to three months but even as long as six months. Colic affects approximately 10- 20% of newborns. While the research reports there is no one specific cause and with that in mind, makes it very difficult to treat a colicky baby. Other suggestions include that while you're breast-feeding, you sure don't want to consume foods that give you gas or indigestion like broccoli, cauliflower, garlic, onions and even spicy foods. it may be even as simple as an food allergy to the type of baby formula that you're feeding your newborn.

  • Am I still a Vegetarian if I eat Crickets?
    As I would visit the local Pet Supplies Store Plus and see customers walk out with bags of crickets, I would never think that I would be one day eating them myself. While it is something I wouldn't think of back then, truth the matter is that we have been consuming crickets for hundreds of years and approximately 80% of the population in the world already consume insects regularly (our Western culture has not seen the benefits of these little insects).

  • Get a Grip...Literally
    I remember as a young man, my dad telling the importance of having a strong but firm handshake and I've continued that through my entire career. With that idea in mind, I never truly knew the value and importance of a good grip not only as a young man, but as we age and get into the golden years. The importance of having a good grip for holding on and lifting things, but for simple and basic activities like opening a jar, tearing open a bag of chips or maybe holding onto a bag of mulch as you carry from the car to the flower bed. These abilities may seem nominal basic activities do you show the importance of having a strong grip at a young and older age. I was reading an article from the Journal of the American Medical Association (1999), that stated that in an older person, decreased muscle strength predisposes a person to functional limitations in activities of daily living and can cause disability. We all know that a simple minimum level of strength is needed to perform a basic task. When your strength is much higher than the minimum level, you've got a little bit more in your strength tank to do what is necessary. This reserve capacity as they call it, serves as a safety margin that presents and prevents functional limitations from developing like deconditioning, possibility for an injury or just not being able to do the activity.

  • How Fermented are you?
    Being from a high German heritage, I remember always having sauerkraut at least once a week in my house. While it may be a acquired taste, I still enjoy it today without the ribs that my mom always cooked. Not only for the taste, but for the many of the health benefits that go along with eating sauerkraut on a regular basis. So, what does fermented actually mean? Fermented means when microbes or bacterial or enzyme enzymatic reactions breakdown the food into smaller compounds that are easier for digestion. When most people think of fermentation, I think of either pickles or sauerkraut as their major examples. Fermented foods can also include kimchi, kiefer, tempeh, kombucha, yogurt, sour dough bread, and of course one of my favorites is sauerkraut. There is ongoing research that show that a diet that is rich in fermented foods can bring many health benefits. Fermenting foods allow you to store food for longer periods of time and boosting their shelf life. It will give your body a huge dose of helpful probiotics which are microorganisms crucial to aiding in proper digestion. Read more
  • It looks like that auto accident you had when you were a teenager is finally catching up with you...
    It looks like that auto accident you had when you were a teenager is finally catching up with you. This month I had several patients who had severe pain in their neck that just happened for no apparent reason or cause, it just happened as they stated. While discussing their reviewing history, they didn't remember of any accidents in the last 10 or 20 years that they recalled. The spinal exam showed a lot of restriction and muscle spasm. After the recommendation of neck x-rays, it was determined that they had a spinal level which is typical for the fifth and sixth vertebra in the neck to have significant amount of spinal degeneration and arthritis. I asked them do you remember maybe 30 years or more ago were you may be in a small fender bender. The answer to that is oh yeah, I remember I was a teenager and was rear ended. You know, I really didn't feel any pain I was just sore for a couple days, but it just kind of went away. I said this is the accident that caused this amount of spinal degeneration in your neck and arthritis. Read more
  • How did my Back go out just from picking up a Paperclip?
    I get asked all the time how my back just went out when I tried to pick up a paper clip or just getting the laundry out of the dryer. Well, the answer is very simple and also very complicated as well as to how your body let this happen. So here is the long and short answer. You should be able to do all these activities with ease, without difficulty and no possibility of flareups. What has occurred is that you have allowed your body to improperly adapt and compensate by doing the same thing over and over again without ever changing certain mechanics causing poor body dynamics which developed spinal dysfunction. What you've also done is allow muscular weaknesses and compensations to occur in your back muscles. This is caused by not actively stretching, exercising, changing and adapting you're normal sitting and standing postures that you have to do a continual daily basis at home and work. This weakness occurs when your body is not forced to either change, adapt or progressively improve through either an active flexibility, range of motion or resistance exercise program. Read more
