This wonderful season is a time for sunshine, new life/growth, warmth & a time to recharge the body!
Make this seasonal change an opportunity to re-invigorate your health & evolve to a higher level of function! Here are some great tips & ideas to include this spring to spruce up your body, your health & your life!
Get out there is nature and absorb the patience, flow and energy that comes from connecting with the great outdoors. Use all your senses; taste, touch, sight, sound & smell. Kick your shoes off, get down in the dirt and feel it!
As many of you will know I've just completed a 21 day cleanse! So, I'm really 'hot' on detoxing at the moment! What I experienced though was profound & impressed upon me the need for our systems to clear out the garbage periodically. Even though I felt I lived very clean & only (well mostly!) put the good stuff in, I still experienced wonderful detox changes throughout my cleanse. So, even if your doing a great job their is something special about hitting the reset button to allow your body to get on top of things. Anyway, isn't this the time for spring cleaning!
On a side note - my wife Dallen has just started a Functional Nutrition course with renowned Nutritionist Cyndi O'Meara so she will soon be able to give advice on appropriate cleanse protocols that will work for your body - keep posted for more soon.

1/2 cup cashews (organic activated Best but not essential).
8 dates (organic pitted best)
1 large or 2 small apples core removed, red or green (organic preferable)

We live in a society where the ‘quick’ reins supreme. Fast food, same day delivery, fast weight loss, quick pain relief and the list goes on and on, but what is this really doing to us? How is this serving us? Yes we are getting our fat free, low cal, no carb/high carb orange decaf mocha frappuccino in record times where even Usain Bolt starts to worry, but it starts to put unrealistic expectations on the reality of our situations especially towards our health.
Most people are looking for that one thing at that one time to “cure” them of everything that they have going one and it simply doesn’t work like that. Dr. John Demartini said “Those looking for the magic bullet often get shot” and this reins true to our health where we spend the time and money to fix something but in reality we are just masking the symptoms and letting the underlying problem continue to fester.
One of the core principals in Chiropractic stated in Ralph W. Stephenson’s book the Chiropractic Textbook is The Principal of Time where it states, “there is no process that does not require time” and this applies to everything. Lets look at learning. Can we really expect to learn a new thing instantly? Do you remember how long it took you to walk? How long it took you to write? How long it took you to talk to "that girl/boy you liked"? I'm sure some of us are still learning some of these. How can our health be any different? We were born with the potential of true health and we are the ones that over time that have compromised that potential. Do you have 5,10, 20 or even 50 years of poor health choices? Did those poor choices affect the way your nervous system works? How has your body coped with those choices? Can you expect your body to magically get back to that point of optimal health? It's going to take some time, commitment and patience on your part.
1. Get Adjusted
Regular chiropractic adjustments help to ensure your spine is in its optimum position and working at its best.
2. Move It
Move your body often, in all directions and through all ranges. For best results, perform activities you love that involve global movement of all parts of the body.
