Should I...

Should I...

I'm often asked, "What exercises should I be doing?" or "Do you think I should get a new pillow or mattress?" or "Do you think yoga will help?"

The short answer is: "How the heck do I know?"

Let me elaborate on this briefly.  The truth of the matter is, what is going to be helpful for one person is going to be terrible for the next person.  What won't cause harm to one person will cause subluxations in the next person.  I often tell people that I run around 50-60 miles per week.  If I recommended that everyone do what I do it will cause problems for most people - it works for me.  I'm also a vegetarian, I wouldn't recommend it for everyone.  My suggestion is to listen to your body.  If you pay attention it will tell you what is working and what isn't.

I'm not the kind of chiropractor who is going to "should" all over you. :)  I will challenge you to evaluate your life currently and identify where you can make small changes which will be beneficial for the long haul in these key areas - your eating and drinking habits, your exercise habits - cardio, strength and flexibility, your relationships, and what you're putting into the computer (your mind) i.e. what you're reading or thinking.  You don't need me to tell you that drinking water versus Coke is going to be beneficial or that going for a walk instead of sitting on the couch watching TV with a bag of Doritos is going to be good for you.

Here is the only recommendation you will get from me: Keeping your nerve system free from interference will enhance all of the other positive changes you are making in your life. 

You live your life through your nerve system - keep it clear, keep it connected.
