If a patient had a hurt low back we would adjust them, give them some home exercises, tell them to ice and they would improve. And quickly. Insomnia, adrenal fatigue, and depression? All easy fixes with a few natural treatments. But then ten years into my practice, something changed. Some patients stop responding as well to the work we were doing. It baffled me. For ten years everyone got well, why would some people not respond? Around that time books like Wheat Belly, Grain Brain, and Blood Sugar Solution were starting to emerge. We were learning that our food was being genetically altered. That sugar was […]
