Are You Preparing for Your Best Year Ever? We can help.

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

It’s the time of year where golf clubs are stored and skis are getting tuned. Many of us are patiently awaiting the mountain snowfalls so the lifts can start turning at our favourite local ski resorts. It doesn’t seem to matter if you’re a Big White, Sun Peaks, Silverstar or Apex family, we’re all thinking the same thing, “How much snow did we get on the hill last night”? At Lighthouse we have a special relationship with the ski community as Dr. Jenkins daughter races with the Big White Ski […]

Top 10 things people do to get and stay healthy in the summer   In Kelowna we are blessed with the unofficial nickname, California North, when it comes to our weather. And this year is no exception. Now that we are through spring, our summer is incredible. There are some drawbacks to having some of the best weather in Canada. It attracts a lot of crowds so our city is bursting during the summer and many locals tend to loose their minds once the weather shifts. People who are otherwise […]

It Took 30 Years for Mainstream Research to Acknowledge This Fact.

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

The British Journal of Sports Medicine recently published an article (March 31, 2017) stating that “Saturated fat does not clog the arteries: coronary heart disease is a chronic inflammatory condition, the risk of which can be effectively reduced from healthy lifestyle interventions.” It may come as a shock to you but many doctors have been preaching this message for 30 years. So basically we have lost an entire generation to heart disease because we have been focused on the wrong target. This confirms the suspicions of heart surgeon Dr. Dwight Lundell about […]

Post concussion syndrome and the nutrition that can heal you faster.

Register here for our “Broken Brain Webinar” What researchers have know for a while Several years ago I was at a conference in Toronto and the keynote speaker was a central nerve system and nutrition expert. He shared a study that was almost 15 years old at the time, so I think it’s important to know that this information has been around for a while. Progressive neurologist were treating concussion with a combination of healthy fats and other supplements to radically reduce the recovery time of the athletes. Damage continues […]

Fitness Does Not Equal Health!

By: | Tags: | Comments: 0

I run the risk of being misunderstood right away with this post, but I’ll do my best to qualify my statement. Physical fitness is an ABSOLUTE REQUIREMENT for human health, but fitness and health are not the same thing. Fitness as a Buffer for Bad Habits Lifestyle choices such as poor nutrition, excessive alcohol consumption, or smoking are often justified as “OK” if the person is physically active.  If you already have some of these unhealthy habits, exercise will likely offset some of the damage, so it is a good […]

A few weeks ago I wrote a blog post on how important your nerve system is in getting you the results you want in your performance, on and off the field (or ice, road, trail or pool. . . . where ever your playground is). Here is the link if you missed it. I wanted to finish up with some super practical suggestions that many times go left unsaid because people think they are just too simple.

Concussion is not all in your head

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

Some stat’s on concussion. . . 3.8 million concussions recorded in the USA, that’s double the number in 2002. Nearly 500,000 children were concussed. One third of concussions happen during practice (often not attended by doctors or trainers who know how to properly manage concussion). 20% of high school athletes will experience concussion during the sporting season and one third of those athletes will have a second concussion during that same season. The highest growth of concussion rates is in middle school athletes. There are half as many concussions in […]

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 […]

What an athlete looks like with and without today’s chiropractic

By: | Tags: | Comments: 0

This week was a shock. I personally saw the contrast of an athlete who has had chiropractic care from birth compared to one without. This first x-ray you will see is of my oldest; 15 years old and involved in competitive sports. In fact his #1 sport is one of the highest impact sports on the planet, ice hockey. He’s has been banged around with the best of them. As he advances, it only get’s more competitive and aggressive. He’s had multiple injuries throughout his career, sidelined with broken bones and […]
