Get Well. Stay Well.

Letting Go..

Date: May 10, 2017 | Time: 5:00am

This has been a year of letting go. Letting go of things both willingly and unwillingly. Letting go can be difficult for some of us so we tend to avoid it. The question I ask myself is why is it so hard to let go of things? There are even things that I hold onto that I know are not good for me whether it be relationships, material things, or even feelings for that matter. I find myself being cluttered.... <view entire article>





Reflection

Date: January 1, 2017 | Time: 8:12pm

As I reflect upon 2016 there are definitely things that I could have done better. I feel like I was lost the majority of the year. I lost my way. I had no direction, no goals, and no discipline to get anything done. I did a lot of reading, thinking, and reflection. Now it is a new year and I am ready for a new me. When I think of 2017 I know I will not make New Year resolutions. I.... <view entire article>





My Little Buddy..

Date: April 6, 2016 | Time: 2:57pm

As written by Jenny Poor Warning: Be advised there is sensitive material at the bottom. On January 7th 2016, I found out I had round worms. This came as a surprise to me, as I consider myself to be a clean person. After doing further research, I learned that most people probably have parasites. If you eat out; if you have indoor pets; if you live on a farm; if you get dirty river or lake water in your.... <view entire article>





Confessions of a Mom..

Date: August 9, 2015 | Time: 6:22pm

This is written by Jenny Poor. I am going to admit a wrong doing that I did 6 1/2 years ago. This confession isn't so you will feel sorry for me or so you can tell me that it is ok. My reasoning behind all of this is so hopefully I can shed some light on the effects of poor choices moms sometimes make. On November 18, 2008 I gave birth to a handsome, funny, quirky, empathetic, wonderful, awesome little.... <view entire article>





Know Your Numbers!!!..

Date: April 12, 2015 | Time: 12:25am

In our society numbers are very important, in fact, you can go through a single day without needing to know a number. We live our lives by the numbers: phone numbers, pin numbers, stock market numbers, etc. Yet, many of us don't know the numbers that SHOULD be most important to us, which are our health numbers. The health numbers that I feel are most important for this post are heart health numbers. Knowing your heart health numbers could literally save.... <view entire article>





Success

Date: March 26, 2015 | Time: 6:27am

I read something this morning that Dr. Bernard Jenson said at one time regarding a patients success at a healthy lifestyle that really struck home with me. He said, "The best doctor can do little for an uncooperative patient. So much depends upon the patient's determination to get well, upon his or her willingness to make major lasting life changes, that a great deal hangs on the patient's attitude. It is only now, in recent times that people have begun to.... <view entire article>





Dry Skin Brushing..

Date: February 17, 2015 | Time: 3:21pm

Dry Skin Brushing When I first heard about dry skin brushing (DSB) I was kind of skeptical about it. I mean, really, how does taking a brush that looks like horse brush (or at least what I always thought a horse brush to look like) and running it over your skin help anything besides sloughing off dead skin? But it is so much more than just skin care. When you think about it, our skin is like a gateway to the.... <view entire article>





Betrayal

Date: January 29, 2015 | Time: 12:26pm

One of the amazing people who works in our office received a cancer diagnosis yesterday, so this disease has now made its way directly into our path. We have already been on a mission to educate patients about what we put in our bodies and making better choices and this has just intensified our passion. While this is not a diagnosis we want for our work family member it is one that we will take on as an opportunity to.... <view entire article>





Life's Path..

Date: January 22, 2015 | Time: 8:50pm

This blog was written by Jenny Poor, CNHP. She has worked in our office for the last 4 and half years as our lab administrator. She is an amazing person and a natural born caregiver (almost to a fault), I can not wait to see how she takes her education and changes our little part of the world. It's funny where life takes you and the path that God has planned out for you. If you were to tell.... <view entire article>





Motivation vs. Inspiration..

Date: January 11, 2015 | Time: 4:20pm

Motivation seems to be something that everyone wants and yet we all have a hard time getting it. What is interesting is that people seem to think that motivation and inspiration are the same thing. People seem to think that the two have the same meaning and the two words are often used interchangeably. This is not an accurate assumption. Let's look at the meanings of each of these words. Motivation: (as taken from the Dictionary) 1. the act or an instance of.... <view entire article>
