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.

Our webinar this month is all about traumatic brain injuries. Dr. Jenkins just returned from a multi-day seminar and we are super excited to pass the learning on to all of you. TBIs refer to a variety of conditions such concussions, strokes, or really any injury that occurs to the brain after birth. I, however, would like to focus my blog on strokes though.

This is a book you will want to own; A Mind of Your Own

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

Dr. J’s Book Review of A Mind of Your Own by Dr. Kelly Brogan MD I still remember the first patient that told me that their depression was improving since they started chiropractic care. Her name was Gloria and she had been on antidepressants since her last postpartum depression diagnosis 20 years early. As a new grad, I didn’t really have an appreciation of how magnificent the human body, brain, and spinal cord were. I had the “science” in my head but had a hard time understanding how profound Gloria’s […]

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 […]

The study he was referencing was about chiropractors correcting the curve in the neck and how the nerve system of those patients corrected the scoliosis in the mid and lower back. Mind boggling! Now […]

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 […]
