This won’t be easy. I’m choking back tears as I write. But I am also smiling on the inside. Every so often I am asked about my past: Where did I grow up? Tell me about your last name. How is it that you rode your bicycle across America and then in the middle of […]

What if Albert Einstein had been put on Ritalin?

Here I am with my coach, Dr. Kevin Pallis. See that fire behind us? Once it dies down a bit, my coaching tribe and I are going to walk barefoot across a bed of burning embers. Crazy, huh? And that coach…Dr. C – you talk about him a lot but he looks pretty unobtrusive…normal, dare […]

I have a confession to make: I am more of a stress management doctor than a back doctor. Sure, feel free to lump me into that catch-all group of chiropractors whose main focus is to fix backs. Yep, backs I fix. And necks. And knees. And whatever else seems to be aching, creaking, pinching or […]
