Fascia: The Body’s Transmission System

We spend a lot of time talking about the nervous system and how it controls what we’ve done.  And, being a chiropractor, I really do appreciate its importance. But I’ve always asked myself, what if there’s more to the story?  Nerves have to function digitally, with action potentials that only fire in an “all-or-nothing” pattern, […]

Building a Better Brain

Happy belated Mother’s Day to all the mothers out there!  My mom has been an irreplaceable part of my life, and I don’t know if I’d be where I am today without her support.  I will also soon be a father myself, and I was really excited to celebrate the day with my wife as […]

Nasal Breathing 101: What Is Disordered Breathing?

How Do You Breathe? On the face of it, it sounds like a ridiculous question.  But the truth of the matter is most folks aren’t doing the best they can, and the numbers are getting worse.  Sleep apnea cases are on the rise, about 1 in 12 Americans suffer with asthma, and over 100 million […]

Acids & Bases: Understanding pH, Redox, and Your Health

This week, I hope to blend some of the physics we’ve been learning with chemistry.  This is because, at the root of it all, living systems exist due to negative entropy.  This blog post would be a good refresher.  This is done through motion and flow at the quantum level.  Very few people, like Fritz […]

Love Your Lymphatic System

It’s funny that although 80% of the extracellular fluid in the body is lymph and 20% is blood, we spend a whole lot more time talking about the latter. If you neglect this often-forgotten system, then chances are you may struggle with never-ending chronic health issues. Blood is a fluid that goes through arteries, capillaries, […]

Your Body is Amazing Part 8: Health Is Voltage

All cells run on energy.  That energy comes from the sun either directly (sunlight) or indirectly (food).  You may have heard me mention acid-alkaline balance multiple times throughout the blogs and on social media.  pH is a measurement of acidity and alkalinity, but also a measurement of voltage in the body. Everything in this universe […]

How to Optimize Metabolic Health

What Is Metabolism? Metabolism is the entire suite of biochemical processes that occur within living organisms whose goal is to change food into energy by either breaking something down (catabolism) or building something up (anabolism).  Cells convert relatively simple nutrients into energy and building blocks needed for growth and survival. The term “metabolism” refers to […]
