Farewell UBC

Posted by: | December 10, 2010

Another era has come to an end for me. Today I say goodbye to many friends and colleagues at UBC as I move on to new adventure and exciting opportunities. In January I will begin studying at the New Zealand College of Chiropractic, finally pursuing a dream I’ve had for some time. Good-byes have never […]

Last week HSE hosted its first workshop specifically on men’s health issues. Dr. Hal Gunn of Inspire Health presented “Cancer and Men: What You Need to Know”, which was very well received by its participants.

What Does Chiropractic Have to Do With the Common Cold?

Posted by: | July 23, 2010

Chiropractic may be the most misunderstood alternative health care discipline out there. I was once guilty of believing it was solely a cure for back pain, though have discovered the preventative health benefits this complementary medicine offers stretch far beyond the lower back. Think of your body as a running car for a moment. In […]

Going Organic: It’s easier than you think!

Posted by: | June 25, 2010

About a month ago, I made a very sudden and drastic change within my household. As I perused my kitchen one evening, opening the cupboard doors, the fridge and freezer, I began to see the environmental impact and physical blow my food had on both my body and my planet. I wanted to finally feel […]
