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.

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 […]

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. As this is something that has affected my own life. I don’t talk about it much because it still brings me to tears and if my […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 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 […]

Your vagus nerve may hold the secret to really beating cancer If you’ve been reading some of my blog posts over the last few months you will have heard about the two sides of your nerve system — the sympathetic (or stress response) side and the parasympathetic (healing and recovery) side of your nerve system. A recent article in the Journal of Biological Regulators and Homeostatic Agents (which I’m sure everyone has a copy of . . . . ) the scientist wanted to understand how much healing happened when […]

Free Webinar on Building a Titanium Reinforced Immune System to Avoid Cancer. The term “war on cancer” was coined by then President Nixon in 1971. Since then, the US federal government has spent well over $105 billion on the effort, that was in 2009. By 2013 spending rose to 4.8 billion a year. . . . and that doesn’t include the billion’s of dollars we also spend in Canada. In some articles it is estimated that the Nixon administration said there would be a cure by 1976. According to the […]
