Stop peeing in the wind…

Hey Folks!

Do you suffer from IBS symptoms, acid reflux, varied energy levels, and/or various musculoskeletal aches and pains? You don’t need to live that way!

We’ve all slowly wandered astray when it comes to our health, often wondering, “oh no, what’s WRONG with me?” when our health is less than optimal. I’m here to tell you that there is NOTHING intrinsically wrong with you! If you forgot to water your plant or keep it in adequate light, you wouldn’t think to yourself, “the plant is wilting??? What is WRONG with it?” – you would probably think to yourself, “darn it, I forgot to water the plant again”.

So what? What’s the difference?

The difference is that we don’t assume there is something wrong with the plant – we assume we forgot to provide something to the plant that it needs to be healthy. Well if we apply that same paradigm to ourselves, then there is nothing wrong with you either. You are experiencing symptoms because your body is trying to tell you something. It’s trying to tell you that you are either deficient in some required ingredient for health, or that you are being exposed to something that is preventing you from expressing health.

So then, the magic questions are, “what are the requirements to create a healthy human being?” and, “what do I need to do, or avoid, to maintain my health once I’ve got it?”

For the vast majority of us, the answer to these questions is very simple. We need to live like humans should. Many folks believe this means going back to living like “a caveman”, but that isn’t true. We just need to live in a way that would emulate their lifestyle, while fitting it into our modern lives. This way we can take advantage of the benefits of modern living (like toilets and motorized vehicles) while enjoying the health and vitality of living in a more “natural” environment. But, how do we recreate that environment?

The folks in the NHL devote their lives to hockey, Accountants know how to best optimize your income, and I know how to help you live the healthy life you were meant for. I spend a large majority of my waking hours actively making people healthier, reading about making people healthier, or writing about making people healthier. I have spent thousands of hours, completed a masters degree and spend my days helping people improve and maintain their health. Let me be the one to help you too.

The services I provide are designed to make you healthier. They are simple, but not always easy (sometimes they are though!). I don’t provide anything outside of what you need. No fluff. No magic. No BS. I am your resource for information about eating well, moving well and reducing stress levels. When needed I refer to other health care professionals and gladly work with them. If you take the necessary steps to provide your body the base ingredients it needs to create health, it will have no choice but to respond. You can’t take supplements to fix a toxic and deficient diet. You can’t buy fancy supports to strengthen a weak back. You have to meet those basic needs before other things like supplements, supports, and fancy tweaks to your diet can have their desired effect. I wish there was a way around it (as it would be much easier to sell) but there honestly isn’t. No pill will ever replace exercise and an intelligent diet – and taking one with that goal in mind is doing as the title of this post suggests – peeing in the wind!

I’m available for chiropractic care, nutritional counselling and I own and run CrossFit Sudbury (a way of working out that will change your life). Check out the following link and book in for what best suits you. Or feel free to email me any questions you may have regarding chiropractic, nutrition, exercise or health in general. I love this stuff and love helping people. Looking forward to hearing from you!

In health,
