Recently I did an interview with one of my clients, Kelsey Abbott, who is a high level competitive triathlete.  Kelsey battled back and shoulder issues for years that kept her from being able to train and compete at her best. She tried every type of therapy she could find, but the issues remained.

I Still Can’t Believe I Was That Bad…

It was July 4th, 1998.  I was 7 months into chemotherapy for leukemia and I had already had 40 different treatments.  When I wasn't flat on my back in the hospital, nearly all my waking hours were spent at home, sitting in front of the television.  My only "exercise" was getting up to eat or use the restroom. That day some friends of mine offered to pick me up and take me to Siesta Key Beach to watch the fireworks.  We got there around noon and...

Weight Training May Help Ease or Prevent Depression

Lifting weights might also lift moods, according to an important new review of dozens of studies about strength training and depression. It finds that resistance exercise often substantially reduces people’s gloom, no matter how melancholy they feel at first, or how often — or seldom — they actually get to the gym and lift.

Ever have one of those days where you get so busy and caught up with things that something you intended to do doesn't get done?  That's what happened to me yesterday. After Sunday School, I went home, ate lunch and then did a multi-hour home session with a woman who was in too much pain to make it into the office.  I had about an hour when I got home to compile my list of things I wanted to write about and then I had a...

An Underdog Story, a Way to Quickly Relax, and a Plant That Is Proving to be a Remedy for Over 32 Diseases and Counting

Recently I made it back onto the golf course after a pretty long layoff and naturally this made golf a topic of conversation with a few of my clients this past week.  One of my clients, Carol, and I were talking about golf, and I happened to mention to her that in the fall I had worked with a local golfer who had won the All-Area Player of the Year Award despite having an abnormal curvature of his spine known as scoliosis. Carol said, "that reminds...
