You Decide 036: Dr. Tiffany Johnson – Figure Out What You Stand For and Rise Up
ANTI. What a doozy of a prefix. I was recently accused of being anti-medicine, and it occurred to me that I’ve been called anti-this-or-that quite a few times before. First, there is absolutely a time or place for clinics and hospitals. Crisis care is different. But when the body needs healing, I believe in healing….Read More
You Decide 029: Marilyn McMurray – A Family Saved From Devastation by Homeschooling
Just as COVID-19 has “aggressively coaxed” many people into educating their children at home, Marilyn felt forced to remove her son from the school system, and homeschool him instead. Reluctant from the word go, she didn’t know that homeschooling would eventually save her family from a horrible fate, and actually move them from a place…Read More
You Decide 012: Mom’s Thoughts – Don’t Take Yourself So Seriously
In my recent episode with Callyn, we talked about how to reset when anxious feelings take over. Anxiety is what happens when the left side of the brain – our source of logical thought – goes into overdrive. The best way to snap out of that way of thinking, is to get out of the hamster wheel…Read More

From the outside though, it sure looked like life was perfect – amazing family willing to do whatever it takes, hard-working parents who gave everything they had…Read More

About three weeks ago, I decided I was ready to live without it.” (This only after 2 weeks of adjustments) I looked at her,…Read More
Are You “Normal”?
One of the most common things I hear a patient say when connecting on the first day is, “My doctor said this is normal, my friends all struggle with the same thing and so did my mom, aunts and grandma.” Then I ask, “Does it mean that it’s normal? Or…do we see and hear about…Read More
Helping Women to Be Happy and Healthy
In my chat with Chris and Andrea on North Dakota Today yesterday, I talked about women and all of the duties we are responsible for – mom, spouse, business owner, employee, taxi, cook, cleaner, social organizer, planner. That picture of ‘a day in the life’ isn’t always glamorous (or for some, isn’t hardly ever glamorous)….Read More
Life Changing Chiropractic Story on ND Today
About 2 weeks ago, I was journaling and working really hard trying not to “think”. I kept feeling my wheels spinning as I continued to tell my left brain to BE QUIET! Then I started thinking about my purpose: To Transform Lives and with that thought I felt a sense of frustration. I continued to…Read More
