It’s Summertime!

It seemed like it would never get here, but it finally is summer. The last few weeks, we’ve had some travels, but last week’s blog finished up our winter/spring series on Practical and Reasonable Ways to Regain and Retain Health.

I really enjoy writing and truly hope that the information we’ve been sending to you over the years has been a blessing and encouragement. We have been writing this blog since early 2016 and actually have over 70 different posts on health and wellness!

This summer, I am going to do something different: I am going to go back through the 70+ posts and pick out ten that contain information that has and continues to impact me personally and the way I practice and live life day to day.  At the beginning, I will add a few comments regarding any new information or changes that have come out since the post was first shared.

Most of the time when I come up to the office on Saturdays to write, Maisey typically comes with me, but usually just gets bored and falls asleep. Liz always seems to know when we’ve been up here on a weekend… something about black fuzzy fur by her chair.

I look forward to reviewing and sharing with you some of the most impactful information we have written about over the last four years. I really appreciate all of you who read these posts! It has given me a reason and purpose to explore health and wellness to a depth I just wouldn’t have gotten to if I wasn’t writing to teach and inform another. So, thanks! Look for the first summer installment next week!

Yours in Health,

PS: Don’t tell Liz Maisey was up here!

Wow! The last newsletter I sent out was March 14th, 2018. Where did the time go? I hope those of you whom I haven’t seen in the office since then are doing well.

The main reason for the interruption of this series on Exploring the Paleo Lifestyle was the unfortunate passing of one of my younger brothers, Mathew Albert Williams. He passed the week after the last newsletter went out. This obviously hit our family hard and put us into “emergency operations mode” for awhile. Also, as most of you are also aware, we said goodbye to our long-time Staff Lead, Geri Warner, in July when she moved to Florida. We have had quite an eventful middle part of our year!

God Wasn’t Caught Off Guard With Matt’s Passing…

I was, but God wasn’t. It isn’t how I wanted things to play out, but I know He knows best. I am also of the opinion that we must have needed a big break between blog posts – maybe we’ve just been waiting for someone to get on the train and you’re here now – so let’s get going!

I started out this year with the intention of completing a series on exploring the Paleo lifestyle. We have been working through Paleo Magazine’s special edition of Go Paleo: The Step-By-Step Guide to look at how our pre-industrial ancestors lived. Part of the reason the Paleo movement has taken off is because a lot of the diseases we deal with today, like cancer, heart disease, autoimmune issues, etc., were not nearly as prevalent in our fore bearers. The argument could be made that people were just dying of something else instead, like war and pestilence! While I am sure that may have also been true, some of the issues we face today are likely lifestyle based. The last topic we reviewed (ironically enough) was on getting rest: Protecting Your Sleep.

The topics we have left to finish out before the end of the year are:

  1. Enhancing Sleep

  2. Unplugging

  3. Connecting with Others

  4. Strategies for Sunlight Exposure

  5. Strategies for Getting Out, Moving, and Playing

I am aiming to get this all wrapped up by Christmas – my present to you! Look for a post or two every week til the end of the year. I encourage you to review the whole series as you head into 2019 – now is a good time to start planning on a healthy and happy new year!

 

This is a picture of my brother Matt (he is the tall blonde guy – people used to get us confused all the time!). He made me laugh a lot, shared my bent on politics that broke with the rest of the family a little bit (this made for lively conversation and plenty of practice for all on patience), and I loved him very much. He will be missed, but I take comfort again in the fact that “God wasn’t caught off guard.”

I look forward to sharing the rest of the story on Paleo with you before the end of the year!

Yours in Health,

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 educational emails to our patients, relative to lifestyle, health, longevity and disease prevention. These emails/posts are housed permenently on my website. It is a great searchable site and I encourage you to check it out! You will never receive solicitations from us, and we don't trade or sell our data base. If you don't want to receive these emails, simply scroll to the bottom and click unsubscribe!

We have some great topics to cover over the next six months, and I think you will find them helpful to you personally and potentially to your loved ones and friends. Something new we are going to do this go-around is some interviews with other health practitioners and people that work in the health and fitness industry. I hope to corral Dr. Markley (one of my practice partners for the last 25 years), who is one of the foremost experts on nutritional protocols for health conditions in the region, and get some of his thoughts on a good basic "nutrition package" for health maintenance and prevention. I also plan on interviewing Dr. Sue (my other practice partner and wife of 31 years!), and have her talk to us about care for infants and pregnant mothers. She does an excellent job working with both, and I am actually really looking forward to getting some insights from her for you all and for myself. It is also on my list to talk with a local spine surgeon on some of the reasons they would and would not recommend lower back surgery. In the middle of all that, we will continue to hit my favorite things: chiropractic, exercise and healthy eating.

I promise not to leave you hanging!

I am really looking forward to a new season of writing, and to bringing you some helpful information and interesting interviews. Keep your eyes on your inbox or go directly to the blog site from time to time to see what is new. May God bless you on your pursuit of good health and a full life!
