Why is wheat making people sick?

Why is wheat making people sick?  I think about this a lot and I’m going to break down some of this.  There are a lot of theories out there, but overall many people feel better when they don’t eat wheat.  I’m going to go over 3 theories of why this is happening and my opinion […]

Our Patient Appreciation Day/ Kirk Care Food Pantry Food Drive….

We recently had a Patient Appreciation Day and food drive to support the Kirk Care Food Pantry. I have to say, it was the biggest success because, (and I have to brag) but we have the best chiropractic patients in St. Louis.  Your donations filled up an ENTIRE truck and the volunteers from Kirk Care […]

1 Minute Meditation

Wow, is it hard for me to get 20 minutes let alone 5 minutes to myself to meditate.  First of all, I am so easily distracted.  One little noise or my kids in the other room doing something that they know they shouldn’t be doing, and my brain is not in the right place.  I […]

Reducing Aluminum Exposure for your Family

This week I watched a documentary (The age of Aluminum) about something I already thought I knew about, Aluminum.  So I started questioning practice members in my office this week, “does anyone else know about aluminum.”  The short answer is NO.  The possible links that are being researched are a little scary.  Things like Alzheimers, […]

It is always amazing to me how the body can heal itself when it is free from interference.  Here’s the latest success story from our clinic.

“Yo-Yo Chiropractic”

Check Spine Light

What would you do if your car’s low oil light came on today?  Would you immediately top off your engine with some 10W-30 weight or put some black tape over that little annoying light so you wouldn’t have to deal with its foreshadowing glow any longer?

     If you continue to ignore the warning light, […]

“Molding Back to Normal”
 
 
 
 One of the most important benefits of Chiropractic care is the restoration of normal alignment and mechanics to your spine.  But getting the shape back to where it should be takes time and effort… especially if your spine is tight and rigid to begin with.

“Launching Your Care…”

 

 
“Launching Your Care…”

In its heyday, the space shuttle would generate nearly 8 million pounds of thrust just to lift itself off the launch pad into the atmosphere.  Once beyond the earth’s gravitational pull, it didn’t require as much effort to stay in space and could effortlessly cruise at 17,500 mph with a fraction […]

“Cutting Off the Effect…”

“Cutting Off the Effect…”

If predisposed to chronic life debilitating migraines, no rational person would agree to a beheading to pre-empt the next one.  But fear misplaced faith and little knowledge of how the body innately works could influence such a move on ‘lesser’ body parts…like a gallbladder, some adenoids or a pair of tonsils.
