• What To Do with Fat

    Filed to Diet, Paleo

    This week, we are going to tackle one of the more confusing and contradictory topics so far: dietary fat. When we hear the word fat, it is usually in a negative context: "I feel fat," or "That food is high in fat," or "That fat is bad for you." While you may "feel fat" and some "fat is bad for you" food that "is high in fat" is not necessarily a bad thing. In fact, we need fat to survive!

  • Paleo Eating Overview

    Filed to Diet, Paleo

    Last week's newsletter introduced the concept of a "Paleolithic Based Lifestyle," or what is commonly called Paleo for short. We talked about how the Paleo movement looks at how people lived and ate in the past, and how it relates to the chronic physical and mental health issues of today. Paleo attempts to extract helpful lifestyle choices of those eras and apply them to modern living to help people live fuller, healthier lives.

  • To Paleo or Not to Paleo... That is the Question!

    Filed to Paleo

    Happy New Year! 2018, who would have thought! Well, it is here like it or not, and I am trying to be grateful for another year, even if it is 9 degrees outside.

    Since it is a new year, I figured I would start out with a new blog series. For those of you who have been getting our newsletter for awhile, this is old news, and I hope it will help you as you continue to live a healthy and full life.

    For those of you who have not received our newsletter before, welcome! I would like to say it comes like clockwork, but it usually comes in bursts and series followed by lulls (not to be confused with ...

  • Interview with Dr. Sue

    Filed to Interview

    This week, I am going to interview one of my favorite chiropractors... Dr. Sue Williams. Some of you may think I like her so much because she is my wife, and you couldn't be wrong! But, besides being a great wife and amazing mom to our two sons, Josh and Caleb, she is one of the most talented chiropractors I know. You might be interested to know, however, that she is not the chiropractor that I usually see for care, but I will let her tell that story a little bit later.

    Doug Williams (DW): Hi, Dr. Sue! Can you tell us a little about your background?

    Dr. Sue: I grew up in a small town in nort...

  • Don't Forget To Breathe

    Filed to Updates

    A week ago, last Saturday, I was pondering the above statement... a lot! My oldest son (Josh) and I had just started a half marathon. This wasn't new for us;  it is something we have done on a number of occasions over the years, but this one was different, namely because it started around 9500 feet above sea level! Dr. Sue and I had traveled to Denver and were staying near Breckenridge, CO with our family. When I signed up for the race several months ago, in Lafayette at 692 feet above sea level, it seemed like a good idea. At the start, I wasn't so sure. The fact that it began uphill led ...

  • The Importance of Routine

    Filed to Routine

    I woke up this morning at 5:20 am. It is Sunday. I didn't particularly plan on waking up at that time and I didn't have an alarm set. I rolled over and went back to sleep; after all, church didn't start until 9am! Over the last six months, I have changed my morning routine in order to participate in several running races over the summer and fall. A number of the races are in different states and require an investment of time and money, and I didn't really want to show up to unprepared. So, five mornings a week, I wake up at 5:20 am and try to do something that will move me towards my goal.


  • Annnnnnnnnd.......We're Back!

    Filed to Updates

    Wow! The last blog post I wrote was back in February! I didn't mean to leave you hanging quite that long! It is a good thing I didn't forget Maisey (our dog pictured above) all that time!

    The initial goal I had when we started our blog was to put up a year's worth of material, check the feedback and see if it made sense to continue. I am glad to say we met our original goal last February! The feedback from the first year was very positive and I have decided to continue.

    A note to those who have joined our chiropractic practice since last February:

    Starting in 2016, we began to send educatio...

  • Frailty: Putting It All Together!

    Filed to Frailty, Healthy Aging

    Over the last few months, we have been working our way through the topic of Frailty, which is really a study of how the body unwinds over a life time. Most of the material we have been drawing from has come from an article published in "The American Geriatrics Society." While some choose to look at topics like Frailty and the unwinding of our bodies over time as a bad thing, this article and our blog series took the approach that we are "Fearfully and Wonderfully Made" and understanding how we function in youth and as we age can help us live as full and complete a life as possible! The lens ...

  • Frailty and the Nervous System

    Filed to Frailty, Healthy Aging

    The Nervous System Lies at the Hub of Frailty

    We have been working through a series on Frailty, essentially what happens to our bodies as we age. This material is important for several reasons, not the least of which is, because it is going to affect all of us, if we live long enough, and knowing what is coming can be comforting on some level.

    However, more than that, I believe that understanding how we are "fearfully and wonderfully made" allows us to not only appreciate what we have been given in our bodies, but also inspires us to take the best care possible of them.

    With that in mind, we h...
