2018: The Year of the Mind

By | Emotional/Mind Health, Health, Nutrition, Physical Health | No Comments

This year I have decided to dedicate myself to developing my mind. Thus, I have dubbed 2018 “The Year of the Mind.” I’ve never done a New Year’s resolution and don’t necessarily consider this to be that. Developing my mind beyond anything I ever thought possible will be my focus this year and will continue long after this year. I have spent time developing my mind in the past, but not to the level I’m planning on this year. I welcome those who wish to join me with all or some of the things I’m doing below. Being an osteopathic…

A Unique Test To See If You’re Tongue Tied?

By | Health, Physical Health | No Comments

Tongue Tie Q&A with Sarah Hornsby, RDH, Myofunctional Therapist on Facebook Live at 4pm MST December 12, 2017: Register Here I have been studying the tongue ties and the associated anatomy for several years now. After having a frenectomy to release my tongue tie, I became aware of just how much the tongue can affect the rest of the body. One of the things I recalled after having my tongue tie release was how much tension had been taken off the front of my body. Recently I was experimenting trying to understand tongue ties better. While standing, I arched my…

Is It Really Possible Prevent Hair Loss and Regrow Hair?

By | Health, Physical Health | No Comments

I don’t remember exactly when it happened. It was sometime around my late 20’s or early 30’s. I could tell my hair was thinning and I was finding more and more hair follicles on my pillow. I figured the inevitable process of aging was starting. For the next decade or so, the process only progressed. Luckily it happened slowly, but I know the bald spot on the back of my head is growing (just like the number of hairs growing out of my ears). I realize it could be much worse and I never did anything to try to change…

Solving a Peculiar Case of Pelvic Pain

By | Health, Medicine, Osteopathy, Physical Health | No Comments

Pelvic pain is not always what it seems. I recently saw a woman in her early 30’s who had been having pain over her pubic bone region for over a year. The pubic bones are the part of the hip that meet in the front. Her pain started when she was in the third trimester of her pregnancy with her first and only child. Unfortunately over a year later, her pain had not gone away still. She had tried going to a chiropractor and physical therapist prior to seeing me. She said that although the chiropractic treatment had helped, she…

The Most Compelling Reason To Heal Your Trauma Down To The DNA

By | Emotional/Mind Health, Health, Osteopathy, Physical Health | No Comments

What if we looked at cultivating our health differently? What if we were more proactive in cultivating both physical and mental health? It might surprise you how that could change not just you, but your family in the present and the future. Many patients who have had quality osteopathic treatments, myself included, describe feeling like their body is being unwound. They describe feeling lighter and looser. Movement becomes easier and more efficient. Sometimes patients describe feeling a natural high as endorphins are released. Over time, some patients start to understand and experience how this unwinding has an effect on their…

Osteopaths – Silent Influencers of the World

By | Health, Osteopathy | One Comment

From authors to patients to presidents, osteopaths have had a large effect on the world around us since the 1800’s. The osteopathic profession has silently influenced much of the world around us and yet most of the public does not know we exist. Since its origins the osteopathic profession has been faced with a strong resistance and faced many uphill battles. Many of the contributions from the osteopathic profession go unrecognized and uncredited. Andrew Taylor Still, the founder of osteopathy, came up with the theory of an immune system in the body a generation before Paul Ehrlich and Eli Metchnikoff…

Osteopathy For Lymphedema: A Patient’s Story

By | Health, Osteopathy | 3 Comments

“Congratulations! You don’t have breast cancer,” said the surgeon as Monica woke up from her surgery. They had removed all of her breast tissue and all the lymph nodes in her right arm. Five years later when she was sitting in my office, she said, “What they did not tell me was that I was going to have to live with my arm this swollen. I have to wear this sleeve that does not feel like it does anything.” Monica’s right arm had swelled up like a balloon right after the surgery and had been like that for five years….

Osteopathic Medicine: We Feel Your Pain

By | Health, Medicine, Osteopathy | 2 Comments

“My doctors are starting to question my back pain,” said Meghan, “They have run a lot of tests and can’t find any reason for my pain.” Meghan heard about me from another patient and came with a hope that I could help her. “I’m starting to worry that they’re right and there really is nothing wrong with me,” she explained somewhat despondently. “Lay down on the table.” I said, “Let’s see what we can find.” Meghan laid down on her back. I examined her whole body. There were dysfunctional areas that felt “tense” and “stuck” from her feet all the…

The Musculoskeletal System Never Acts As An Isolated System

By | Health, Osteopathy | No Comments

I remember hearing a cardiologist once say that the cardiovascular system has nothing to do with the musculoskeletal system. I have also heard as much from other specialties during my medical training. This idea of separating systems has become so ingrained in our mentalities, that patients often ask if their problem is caused by a muscle, joint, nerve, tendon, etc. The problem with this mentality is that we are acting as if things actually do act in isolation from each other. In reality, they do not.   We separate systems in order to simplify the complexity of the human body….
