    165lbs of Rompin, Stompin, Airborne Romance in Jump Boots!     Purchase the Movie "Joy" at Amazon!

     I'm going to start off by apologizing to the QVC home shopping network but I find similarities between their philosophy of customer service and ours so here goes... There is a movie running on cable TV now entitled simply "Joy".  It is starring Jennifer Lawrence as real life Joy Mangano who is an American inventor and entrepreneur known for many inventions including the self-wringing Miracle Mop.  It is an inspirational movie of course and focuses on the difficulties inventors and entrepreneurs face as they try to use their creative talents to "change the world" in some meaningful manner.  People like Joy Mango are unique in their ability to recognize a need and then create a solution.  Most of these individuals should be considered "geniuses" because of these talents and we owe most of what is around us and what makes our lives better for their contributions.  It's the early 1990's and one of Joy's struggles, of course is to find some way to gain exposure for and market her Miracle Mop.  Demonstrations in the Wal-Mart parking lot can only get her so far and by "a little luck", someone knows someone and she finally gets a chance to show her Miracle Mop to the budding TV Shopping Show QVC which started in 1986.  The main QVC character she is dealing with is Bradley Cooper who makes decisions about which products will be featured on the show.  At some point in the negotiation, Cooper explains to her what QVC stands for!  "Quality, Value, Convenience" is their acronym mantra and at that point in the movie, I shouted "YES! That is what we are all about"!  It's a standard all of us should strive for as we seek to serve, so thanks QVC for setting the example!  So, that's the story.  I've added "Results" to our adaptation of their trademarked acronym because in the end that's what we all want. I'm sure the Miracle Mop fulfilled that category also!  It's what we are trying to provide with each and every interaction with you!  Remember, Doctor means "Teacher" and my job is to teach you how to best use your limited amounts of "Time, Money and Energy" on health care matters and we focus on Nutrition, Exercise, Skin Care, Stress/Sleep and Micronutrition.  We call it "The Inside Outside Way of Life".  Some do it different, Nobody does it better. QVCR, it's a "Magic" combination.   

    Check out the Joy Mangano Website!  Pretty amazing what this lady has done

    We can now  analyze Yes! Visceral Adipose Tissue or VAT!  It's good to know! with our DXA Scanner   Are you FOFI, TOFI or TOTI?

    DXA Scanner analyzes your Visceral Adipose Tissue or VAT!


    Our Hologic Discovery A DXA scanner now can analyze your Visceral Adipose Tissue or VAT.  This fat is fat that accumulates within the abdominal cavity around your organs. Zone author, Dr. Barry Sears in his book "Toxic Fat" teaches us the dangers of this fat.  Fat that you can pinch and the fat within the abdominal cavity is considered possibly the largest hormone secreting organ in our body.  Numerous hormones are secreted by this tissue and help control eating and appetite such as Leptin which is known as the "satiety hormone" and if all is working correctly, Leptin when secreted in adequate amounts by your fat cells will tell you when you are full and help control hunger. But, the fat within the abdominal cavity doesn't behave like the fat you can pinch. The VAT secretes hormones that put our bodies into inflammation which is a cause/characteristic of most chronic diseases. Things which increase VAT include overeating, especially refined carbohydrates, sugar and fructose, stress and excess alcohol.  Excess Visceral Fat is also associated with Fatty Liver and Insulin Resistance. It is possible to be TOFI, Thin Outside Fat Inside or FOFI, Fat Outside Fat Inside or TOTI, Thin Outside Thin Inside. The easiest way to find out with accuracy is a DXA Body Composition Scan which is cheaper and less radiation than a CT Scan.  The DXA analysis is essentially equivalent to a CT Scan.  We are starting to reanalyze your old scans and will be able to compare them with a new scan when you get it, so give us a call and let's get it scheduled.

    How the Sun sees you! Amazing images from a UV Light Sensitive Camera!

    Grrrrr....I'm gonna burn you!Her is the Video of the UV Light  Sensitive Camera!


    For most of us 80-90% of what we don't like about our skin is related to sun damage from UVA, UVB and Infrared radiation from the sun (meaning premature aging). The only thing that trumps sun damage for some is heavy smoking. We know that the sun damage is cumulative, meaning sun exposure when we are young is with us forever and is additive to our current dose we get every day.  Some of the early damage from the sun will not be apparent for 30-40 years when skin cancers begin to emerge, all related to early sun burns. Other problems such as pigmentation and loss of collagen (wrinkles) are also consequences of Sun Exposure.  This YouTube Video shows very dramatically how a special UV sensitive camera can show us sun damage much earlier than we can see with our eyes which only are able to see light in the visual light spectrum (colors of the Rainbow) or ROYGBV.  It also shows how effective Sunscreens and Sunblocks are in preventing UV light penetration of our skin.   Check out our web page "The Dark Side of the Sun" for more information.

    Memorial Day, a Day to Remember Fallen Comrades

    The Ultimate Level of Commitment!


    "The 30th day of May, 1868, is designated for the purpose of strewing with flowers or otherwise decorating the graves of comrades who died in defense of their country during the late rebellion, and whose bodies now lie in almost every city, village, and hamlet church-yard in the land. In this observance no form of ceremony is prescribed, but posts and comrades will in their own way arrange such fitting services and testimonials of respect as circumstances may permit." Read Pvt. Treptow's Pledge and check out the beautifully worded complete text of the original order issued in 1868 at Headquarters Grand Army of the Republic, Washington, D.C.
