Yes, I know it’s been a long time, but I’m back:)

After focusing on other aspects of my business for a while, I really came to miss my monthly emails to you guys!  It helps me learn by doing this, and I always learn from our community as well…its awesome! (thumbs up emoji here).

Just last week I presented at the Cafe of Life Chiropractic and Massage office here in Longmont, Colorado.  If you haven’t been there, you’re missing out.  Dr. Jessica Thompson has created a beautiful healing environment filled with fantastic people who love what they do.

So what is the #1 thing you can do for your health?  That was the topic of what I shared last week, and it turns out it’s making sure your gut is in tip-top shape.  According to what the latest science is teaching us, our guts control just about everything when it comes to being healthy…and therefore…happy.


“All disease begins in the gut. One man’s food is another man’s poison. Let food be thy medicine, let thy medicine be thy food.”


Ya Hippocrates had it right over 2000 years ago.  Disease begins in the gut, and what’s on the end of our forks decides who we are. Many consider the next frontier in conventional and holistic medicine to be the gut as millions of dollars of research is being poured into this fascinating area of research.

So what health problems are connected to poor gut health?  Pretty much everything you can think of including allergies, skin issues, gastrointestinal conditions, obesity, arthritis, fatigue, depression, anxiety, autism, alzheimers, multiple sclerosis, cancer, heart disease, etc., etc.  You get the point.

The gut is the main focus of my practice because every single thing we do every moment of every day either promotes or degrades our “gut garden”.  This includes food especially as this is what “feeds” the millions of microbes in us.  If they do not get what they need, then they do not have the tools in their toolbox to create health for us.


We can program ourselves to create health, or sickness. Epigenetics is the study of how we have control over this “expression” of our genes towards disease or not.
Other lifestyle choices form the foundation for robust gut function including enough deep sleep, movement, and stress management/elimination.  In fact, stress is connected to most doctors office visits.  All these things and more affect the ratio of “good vs bad bugs”.

Lastly, our guts are intimately connected to brain health and therefore things like depression and autism.  Did you know that 95% of the serotonin we need to help regulate our mood is manufactured in our guts, not our brains?

If you live with sub-par health (and most people do) and are ready to do something about it please fill out your health history here.  We will sit down and discuss your health challenges and goals in a free 45-minute health consultation over Skype or at the Cafe of Life.  To learn more about me and what I do visit

One of my favorite quotes reads, “The Groundwork of all Happiness is Health”.  No one has a monopoly on our health, it’s up to each one of us (not our doctor) to own it.  Like I tell my students all the time, it’s hard to be happy if you aren’t healthy because it affects everything you do in life.
