Stress and your body

Stress is a dangerous thing. While you all agree that stress isn't optimal, most of you wouldn't suggest it to be dangerous. According to Merriam-Webster, the definition of dangerous is: 1 : exposing to or involving danger 2 : able or likely to inflict injury or harm. As a chiropractor, I see injury caused by stress daily. Headaches, neck tension, lower back discomfort, and arm pain are only a few things that we can trace back to stress when searching for their cause. Stress has been declared a hazard of the workplace by Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). Why?

Now I see it differently - Shifting Perspective

Helen Keller:
I have often thought it would be a blessing if each human being were stricken blind and deaf for a few days during their early adult life. Darkness would make them more appreciative of sight; silence would teach them the joys of sound.

HCG Sublingual versus injection

When doing the HCG diet program, it is important to follow the protocols as close to perfect as you can get it. While going through the program, your doctor should be working closely with you as you go through the process. Anytime we are investing in our health, it is highly recommended to get a professional to support you through the process. The decision to participate in a weight loss program sometimes is a difficult thing to do - especially if one of the best choices out there is sticking yourself with a needle everyday!

The Dream ~ Happy Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day

I was born in August of 1965 in the sweltering heat of Opelika, Alabama. Perhaps surprisingly, the year 1965 and the state of Alabama were to be auspicious for The Civil Rights Movement.

In 1965, the Selma, Alabama to Montgomery, Alabama marches were three marches that marked the peak of the United States Civil Rights Movement. Many prominent leaders were involved in these marches, which were born from the voting rights movement, including Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and Hosea Williams.

Clutter Busting and Singular Simplicity

A few years ago I went to visit my friend who is a Buddhist priest in San Francisco. During morning meditation we all sat quietly on our zafu pillows and enjoy the simplicity of the zendo. Only one ornament adorned the altar, a single orchid. In its simplicity and singularity, it was extraordinarily beautiful.


You have your way. I have my way. As for the right way, the correct way, and the only way, it does not exist.”

Dieting can be a challenge for many people, however, there are some things you can do to lose and control weight naturally and easily. Healthy living is a lifestyle! One of the simplest things you can do to lose weight is chew your food. Yup, it's just that simple! By chewing your food you are actually beginning digestion in your mouth so your body can absorb the nutrients.

Self-Actualizing in the New Year ~ Happy 2010!!

With the New Year often comes a desire to re-create, re-evaluate and begin again. It is true that we have that opportunity in every moment, but with talk of New Year’s resolutions in the air, collective energy often propels us towards divine renewal.

Many of us are familiar with the process of defining a goal and doing our best to make it manifest. Often several weeks into the New Year, our goals have eluded us and we feel that we have failed. What started off with the promise of a new vision has ended in disappointment and discouragement.
