Podcasts I’m listening to these days

By: | Tags: , , , , , , , , , | Comments: 0

What books are in your backpack? Back in the day the classic question to ask any leader was “what are you reading these day’s”. That question would generate a few book titles that were worth the read. And this question still is a good one because great leaders still read. And I mean real, paper books. Yes we all have our e-readers loaded up and most of us have a few Audible credits that are waiting to get used, but I find the really solid leaders I talk with still […]

How the right attitude and commitments lead to success.

By: | Tags: , , , , , , , , | Comments: 0

Stick-to-itive-ness This week I had a great lesson in keeping commitments and following through even when I feel I have every excuse in the book to back out of those commitments. This blog is going to be different. Rather than a well researched “article” on some health and wellness breakthrough, I’m going to share with you a few hours out of my day. So grab a cup of green tea and get ready for story time with Dr. J:) I hope you enjoy. Story time with Dr. J It all […]

You see more of what you’re focused on This past fall we were due for a new vehicle. The truck we were replacing finally became more expensive to maintain than it would cost to get into another vehicle. And I can say without hesitation that our old truck lasted far longer than our mechanic said it would, which I was thankful for. So after a few weeks of searching we located one that would fit the family needs. Interestingly enough, once we made the deal it seemed that this particular […]

It’s hard to imagine that people are told this is safe and effective.

for the complete original article by Celeste McGovern CLICK HERE Stanford and GlaxoSmithKlein Last summer a team of researchers lead by GlaxoSmithKlein’s Syed Sohail Ahmed and Stanford’s Lawrence Steinman released a startling connection between the nasal flu shot and brain damage. Researchers estimated that the flu shot triggered an auto immune reaction that kills over 70,000 cells in the sleep centres of the brain, resulting in narcolepsy. Narcolepsy is a lifelong incurable condition where victims suddenly drop into deep dream sleep, sometimes a dozen times a day or more. It can […]

More than a storm Alzheimer’s Disease is more than just an oncoming storm. It’s the health care crisis that could cripple our system as we know it. Beyond the impossible economic burden, the lives of Alzheimer’s suffers and the health (mental and physical) of the families that are left to care for these suffers are being destroyed too. And the thing that makes me want to scream is that it’s completely and absolutely avoidable. Our next webinar is on avoiding Alzheimer’s This month we are going to lay down a […]

What sitting can do to your morning workout; you’ll be surprised.

By: | Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , | Comments: 0

Rethinking Exercise When most people think exercise they typically think activities like running or weight training. And your exercise is done for a relatively short period of time, then you head off to tackle the rest of your day. What researchers are learning is that working out by itself won’t compensate for the problems associated with sedentary behaviour. We need to think about activity, not just exercise. Standing vs. Sitting We are learning is that a standing body uses energy quite differently than a sitting body. Even to the point to […]

Your Priority Pyramid and Why There is More than Core

By: | Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , | Comments: 0

There is More than Core with a Chiropractic Approach Over the last few weeks I’ve came across several experts talking about how critical core strength is. And I agree, core strength is an important part of maintaining upright posture and it can have an incredible impact on your long term health and ability to be active for many, many years to come. The issue I am going to present here is that core strength is only as good as the structure and neurology behind it. I have had more than […]

Non-smokers who avoid the sun have the same cancer risk as smokers.

By: | Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , | Comments: 0

The Journal of Internal Medicine has revealed something absolutely amazing about the role of the sun in human health: a deficiency of sunlight could be as harmful to human health as smoking cigarettes. This has been an ongoing study that now stretches almost 20 years and has been tracking 30,000 women. This is the conclusion from the most recent assessment of these women’s health status: “Nonsmokers who avoided sun exposure had a life expectancy similar to smokers in the highest sun exposure group, indicating that avoidance of sun exposure is […]

3 Teas That Can Help Prevent Cancer; and what would a Kelowna Chiropractor know?

By: | Tags: | Comments: 0

Over the last few months I’ve been finding I’m meeting with a lot more people for various reasons. In fact this past week I had 4 different meetings outside my normal “day to day” chiropractic clients. My mission is to meet with as many people as I can to share what today’s chiropractic can do and I want to become the Kelowna Chiropractor that answers people’s questions scientifically and accurately. And of course, when we have these meetings, the “socially responsible” business person has a coffee:) If you’ve been reading […]

Your posture is more about memory and your math facts than fitness and your work outs.

By: | Tags: , , , , , , , , , , | Comments: 0

Every once in a while I get the opportunity to take over the care of a patient who has had chiropractic care since birth. It’s a real honour and usually they have a great story of how they were introduced to chiropractic. I want to share with you the story of John. When John was a baby he suffered from colic. Colic is crampy abdominal pain in early infancy, sometime really severe. Remarkably it occurs in about 1 in 10 babies. An infant with colic is irritable, cries, and often […]
