Welcome to my new website and my blog. Please note that some of my health articles I’ve written for my regular column “To Your Health” in the Community Press have been archived. I’ll be adding more of these on a regular basis so feel free to check back in from time to time. Please browse through my website and learn about spinal decompression therapy. If you have any further questions feel free to send me a message on the provided email box on the Contact page.
Things have been a wee bit crazy lately with all my scrambling to get the Quinte Decompression & Pain Clinic organized for its opening in April/11. I haven’t had a lot of time to devote to the blog, but that will change soon.
In other news I intend to teach an evening course in September called “Nutrition Demystified” in the Continuing Education department at Loyalist College. I’ve taught nutrition/fitness related courses at the community college level before but haven’t done so for a few years. I’m quite looking forward to doing so again. This course is intended to be a little different from traditional courses on the topic in as much that although it is based on sound science, there will be considerable emphasis on practical information. In fact we’ll even take one evening to visit a grocery store to learn how to understand labels and to demonstrate that it really is inexpensive to eat healthy. More information about this will be available when the fall edition of Loyalist’s magazine “Focus on Lifelong Learning” is delivered.
Well that’s all for now. I’ll be back later.
