Episode 11- Chiropractic 101

So we finally get around to discussing Chiropractic, what it is that I do and how it can help you and your family live a healthier life.  Enjoy?  refs also coming soon too! 

Episode 10 - Death by Sitting

In our tenth episode we discuss the urban myth that your desk chair and workstation are out to get you, only to discover that not only is it true, but apparently it is all part of a grand master plan devised by flip flop sandals. Ergonomics to the rescue... Refs coming soon.

Episode 9 - Healthy Tech

Beyond the obvious advances in medical technology, we explore the idea of generic tech helping us live a healthier life.  Some consider it a bane on real social interaction and therefore our wellbeing however, we put forth thoughts and sources that suggest otherwise.

Episode 7 - Medicating healthy People?!?

This episode has us perilously close to losing our 'clean' rating and going explicit with a research report suggesting everyone should be prescribed cholesterol reducing medication (statins).  We manage not to get to ranty and also review other timely material that completely refutes the initial report.  Also feedback and upcoming episode preview and finally we share the meaning of life - listen for it...

Episode 5 - Just six things...

We play the 'what if' game and discuss what we believe are the top six essentials for healthy living.

The six essentials are:

1.) Be in your truth/be mindful

2.) Always start with Why

3.) Get adjsuted (i.e. regular chiropractic care)

4.) Meal Plan 

5.) Move 

6.) Kaizen - Japanese concept translated as: Continuous incremental improvement

The list is mine, but some of the concepts are borrowed.  #1 comes from Susan Orman

#2 comes from Simon Sinek (his TED talk and book - Start with Why) 

Episode 4 - Moderation or not...

We discuss two book reviews and offer our opinions on the subject of moderation.

Episode 2 -Stress

In our second episode we discuss stress.  What it is, what it can do to you and more importantly what you can do to manage or minimize it.  Listen, enjoy and learn.

If you're sharp you would have caught my mistake on this podcast.  I do of course listen to each episode after the fact, but we record live and re-edits just don't make sense.  So... if you can point out my mistake and what I should have said (email me @ drmattdc@rogers.com) - the first 3 people to do so will get a special prize!
