You can cut down the weeds, but if you never pull the roots, they’ll just keep coming back!!!

Secondary conditions, or symptoms are most commonly a result of a primary condition or an underlying issue. 

Secondary conditions, or any signs of sickness are just warning signs from your body that something isn't working right.

If we chased the symptoms, or just picked the dandelion, it will keep coming back again. If we dig out the root, or correct the primary condition, we can get rid of the weed and promote health and function in the body. 

Correction is not a quick fix. Think about how long your symptoms have been there. How long were they there before you realized it? Healing takes time, but the end reward of health is so worth it! Quick fixes only last for a few years and then the primary condition has had time to progress. Don’t wait when it comes to your health!

Here at our office, we don’t want to only focus on getting rid of your symptoms. We focus on Neuro-Structural correction. Correcting the primary issue that is causing the symptoms to be there in the first place, allows us to keep the secondary conditions from coming back again. In turn, you get to really enjoy daily activities and hobbies that you were once unable. You get to really enjoy being healthy. 

Recipe: Garlic Shrimp and Asparagus Skillet 

Asparagus is in season!!! 

  • 1 lb uncooked extra-large shrimp, peeled
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • A pinch of crushed red pepper or red pepper flakes
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 2 + 1 tablespoons olive oil 
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 2 cups mushroom, sliced
  • 1 bunch of asparagus, ends trimmed and cut in halves

  1. In a bowl, add shrimp, salt, pepper, red pepper flakes and onion powder. Mix everything well.
  2. In a cast iron skillet add 2 tablespoon of olive oil over medium heat.
  3. Add garlic and sauté for 30 seconds. Add shrimp and sauté for about 4 minutes or until shrimp is cooked through. Be careful to not overcook them, otherwise they will have a rubbery texture. Set aside.
  4. In the same skillet add 1 tablespoon of olive oil and mushroom. Sauté for 5 minutes. Then add asparagus and cook until its tender. Stir occasionally.
  5. Return shrimp back to the skillet and mix everything well to combine.
  6. I like putting butter in at the end when everything is all cooked. Let it melt on top of shrimp.
  7. Enjoy!

DIY Sunscreen
  • 1 cup coconut oil 
  • 1/3 cup almond oil
  • 1/8 cup Beeswax
  • 1/8 cup Shea butter
  • 1/2 tsp Vitamin E 

  • Little under 1/4 cup Zinc oxide — THIS IS ADDED LAST 

  1. Place glass bowl over pot of shallow, slightly simmering H2O. Melt all ingredients (except zinc oxide) completely, stir with a whisk to help it along.
  2. Carefully remove from stove and wipe down condensation on bowl (you do not want H2O getting into your product).
  3. Add zinc oxide. Slowly.
  4. Whisk, whisk, whisk (and whisk some more!) and then carefully pour into container of your choice.
  5. This will take a few minutes to set up. Just walk away and leave it alone to quietly set up.
