Results don’t lie

In the health space, in particular, too many people play to too many agendas and vomit their inconclusive biases in studies with data that lacks consideration for every conceivable variable. To do this would almost be impossible or at the very least cost prohibitive. So, what are we left with? Many unknowns that could give us the answers we desire and need to make an informed decision based on all of facts/data rather than partial which could affect our health or the goals we're trying to reach. Headlines are sensational and confuse those who've benefitted from their way of thinking and living. With partial or minimal data and sample size studies (subjects in a study) being spewed all over magazines, newspapers and the net, [...]

Emotions Affect Performance

The Association for Applied Sports Psychology work with athletes, coaches, non-sport performers (dancers, musicians), business professionals, and military, firefighters, police). Dr. Kristen Dieffenbach, an executive board member, and Certified Mental Performance Consultant will discuss emotion regulation for athletes and non-athletes and the science behind it.

Anxiety Disorder and Nutrition: Is There a Link?

Rarely do we consider anxiety as a normal human experience. Consensus about its origin shows anxiety was needed for survival to keep us alert and safe from danger. However, if we manifest anxiety beyond what we were designed for, exaggerated in excess of real danger, when under psychological distress or disease, that is abnormal. Anxiety disorder occurs from a set of risk factors and variables such as genetics, brain chemistry, personality, and life events. It affects 18.% of adults in the United States (approximately 40 million adults between 18 to 54 yrs old) In this episode, Dr. Webster and I discuss causes of anxiety often unknown or dismissed by many, such as emotions (what we’re feeling), medication, supplements, food, and genetics. Are you contributing [...]

Back pain and its affect on the pain/brain connection

Please visit iTunes or iheart and rate and subscribe to the show ​Dr. Webster and I discuss how chiropractic is going beyond improving the function of individual joints. A growing body of evidence indicates that injury, pain, and inflammation from back pain not only affect the individual joints involved or a region of the spine but also has a significant impact on the function and structure of both the sensory and motor brain function. How can the pain/brain connection affect​ ​ memory, language skills, cognitive function, decision-making, and appraisal, in chronic back pain patients? Compelling new evidence demonstrates reduced gray matter ​(​fewer brain cells​) ​in numerous parts of the brain in people with chronic back pain.  How can chiropractic manipulation and motor-skill training affect [...]
