In this episode we will re-examine the value of structural support as a tool in overall health and disease prevention. In particular, we will look at the incredibly important connection between maintaining healthy spinal alignment and how this contributes to overall brain health protection and optimal brain function.
You will hear from my colleague, Dr. Joshua Logan, founder and operator of True North Health Center in Colorado Springs. His private practice has been voted Best Chiropractic Clinic and Best Holistic Pain Management Clinic for several years in a row. Dr. Logan works with the scientifically valid belief that the body is the best doctor and that it was designed to be able to heal itself when given the right tools and support.
In this episode we will explore the connection between proper spinal alignment and movement and how it affects the immune system, organ function, specifically brain function, and neuroplasticity. You will be shocked to learn how even small malalignments of the spine can have a huge impact on the body overall.
Fun Fact: Did you know that chiropractic adjustments improve neuroplasticity and cell adaptability to stress? (Its a like a non-herbal adaptogen!)
In this episode, we also do not shy away from the common questions people have about the safety of chiropractic adjustments. As always, we hope to empower you to self-advocate to find the best chiropractor for your health needs, so we spend some time discussing how to select a chiropractor to fit your needs!
As always, we leave you with some practical steps you can take TODAY to start improving your health. All resources mentioned in the podcast will be made available for you below!

In this episode of Rethink It, we talk about oral health and dentistry and the powerful connection this has to the brain. Our guest, Dr. Dawn Ewing has served as executive director for the International Academy of Biological Dentistry and Medicine for over twenty years. As a dental professional, and doctor of natural medicine, Dawn discusses the important connection between oral health and overall health. As a mother of an autistic child, she has experienced personal struggles that lead to a career as a life-long researcher in the area of brain health and oral health. In this podcast, she provides some valuable insights about the function and physiology of the mouth. We talk about the progression of understanding in dentistry as it relates to overall health, as well as long-term brain health and several other interesting (and some might say, controversial) topics. We touch on the history of fluoride use in dentistry, the truth behind root canals, amalgams, composite materials and much more. This episode covers a lot of relevant ground that you will not want to miss!
Fun Facts: Did you know that the fuzziness that you get on the outside of your teeth when you wake up in the morning is the excretion (or poop) from the bacteria inside your teeth?

About Physica Energetics
This professional line is one of our clinical favorites as it integrates ayurveda, homeopathy and nutritional medicine. It is also the trusted brand in many natural-based cancer clinics, including the Hope4Cancer Clinics. A small company, producing small batch products, this company practices what it preaches. They don't even use barcodes on their products because barcode scanning has been shown to change the energetic frequencies of plants. Since Physica is focused on energetics and is a plant-sourced company, they refuse to expand to the size that will require corporate interventions including something as seemingly small as the use of barcodes.

How much do hormones affect our short term and long-term brain health?
In this episode we will unmask the massive impact that hormones have on our mental clarity and focus. We will be looking at the science behind hormone imbalances and brain fog, while also looking at strategic, effective hormone-hacking techniques to bio-hack our brains for a lifetime of sharp thinking and function.
You will hear from Meg Richichi, LAc, from the Hormone Lifestyle Zone. Meg has 30 years of experience working with women’s hormones as a Functional Integrative Practitioner. We discuss a lot of practical strategies to help women support optimal hormone function throughout their lives. We give you some insight into how to identify if hormones are contributing to your brain fog and how to manage it. Listen as we share some stories from our different practice experiences.
The best part of this episode, in my opinion, is that you will being hearing from someone whose training is vastly different than my own. Meg’s background is as a licensed acupuncturist who stumbled into integrative and functional health because of the health issues she was consistently seeing with her acupuncture clients. You will be able to appreciate that integrative medicine, when done well, will bring together the best research and practices from all health traditions: western medicine, acupuncture, Chinese medicine, Ayurveda and more. Join us for a fun and educational conversation and walk away empowered.

We will discuss the testing that can be done to help narrow down the causes of brain fog, inattention and early dementia and what is commonly seen in post-trauma testing. We will talk about the differences seen in physical traumatic brain injury vs. emotional trauma or neglect. We will be talking about the leading holistic recommendations to deal with these issues along with Dr Varkiani’s recommendations in working with a psychologist.
In this episode, we dig into the history of ADHD, some of the famous historical figures who have been posthumously diagnosed with it, the research surrounding ADHD and the link to dementia later in life. We really dig into the view of the root causes linked to this diagnosis and how to address them with robust lifestyle and brain hacking techniques. This episode exposes the myths behind traditional pharmaceutical treatments for ADHD as well as the risks associated with them. You will gain some practical steps to help you figure out how to not just manage, but recover and heal and help others along the way.
