Certainly this time of year the word resolution comes in to play. I decided to definitively look up the definition in my dictionary (yes, I admit I am technologically challenged and therefore use a dictionary- SORRY!).

So, the definition of resolution- a formal expression of opinion of intention made- Act of determining upon an action, course of action, method or procedure. 

So as New Years approaches and the new year begins, let's all resolve:
- Call your mom more
- Be patient with your kids
- Love your wife/husband more
- Exercise more
- Make better food choices
- Get more sleep
- Laugh more
- Look out for the "other guy or gal" more
- Appreciate things more
- A personal resolution- To lose weight more- I resolved to lose weight in 2016- I think I lost 4 and a half ounces! More to come in 2017, just wait!
- Etc., etc. etc. 

As always, we will be here for your health needs in 2017 to give you all incredible chiropractic care. It is a privilege and an honor.

Please be safe. Lots of happiness to you and yours in the New Year. 

Yours in good health,

Dr. Ray and Health

A Question of Balance

Years ago I was treating a woman in her mid 40's who was in a bad car accident. After some time of chiropractic care I wasn't pleased with her improvement. She kept on complaining of a decent amount of symptoms. I was getting ready to perhaps discharge her and talk to her about another type of care, since I was not thrilled with her progression. On a subsequent visit to the office, I walked into the treatment room and she sees me and starts crying. I said, "I will be back in 1 minute" and when I returned she confided in me that the state of her marriage was in disarray. 

At that point I realized why she wasn't getting better...

Chiropractic care is delivered not just to ease pain and symptoms, it is to help the body get into balance. Through chiropractic and good doctoring and good caring- maintaining balance in body/mind/spirit is really what a good doctor should strive to do for any patient. When you assist your patients in balancing those three factors then you really are helping a human being obtain optimal health, and that is what a good doctor should always have in mind. 

So I came across a couple of super quotes concerning maintaining balance, enjoy:

1- "The best 6 doctors anywhere and no one can deny it, are- sunshine, water, rest, air, exercise and diet." (Wayne Fields)
2- "Nurturing yourself is not selfish it is essential to your survival and well being" (Renee Peterson Trudeau)
3- "Health is a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity" (World Health Organization)

Strive for balance my friends, life is fleeting.

Yours in good health,
