The two little girls, Sarah and Jennifer, loved to be in our office… they often were the last appointment of the night and they delighted […]

Take a second to consider: Clean up your “healing” language.

Posted on by Jennifer

When we are “sick”, we naturally want to complain and list all our symptoms. A better way to refer to this healing process is as a “project.”  For example, “My body has a healing project right now. It’s created a rash to push out what it doesn’t want.  I’m investigating the cause.”  Seriously! Your body […]

Your Fingernails Tell a Story

Posted on by Jennifer

For twelve years, my husband and I have had an “article of the day” that we’ve handed out to our patients.  You can imagine how many articles we have created over time!  Interestingly, one of the most popular articles (that people often ask to see again) discusses how the appearance of your nails can tell […]
