Happy 4th of July to everyone. I hope you and your loved ones are going to have a wonderful holiday and truly get to enjoy this time together. This day is all about celebrating our independence and freedom, but it’s a lot more than that. It’s about celebrating the human spirit and the pursuit of freedom, independence and happiness on our own terms against all odds. This may be a reach, but one of the biggest reasons I see such incredible miracles in my office, against all odds, is because of this human spirit. We are meant to be healthy, happy and have the freedom to live the life we deserve. For me it’s all about the kids and making sure they have that opportunity. If you know kids with health concerns of any kind that need my help, please let them know. Also, please don’t forget to help out with the Love Has No Color project (See post below and link).
Office Hours Monday: I will Be seeing practice members Monday morning 8-10 and afternoon 3-6 pm.
Helping Others, Especially Kids, Is Our Right and Duty as Fellow Human Beings On This Planet
I love helping others. For me helping others is truly a way of life and how I was raised. Chiropractic was a very obvious choice for me, as helping others is literally the job description. A few years ago, I joined a humanitarian group called The New Renaissance that makes it their mission to help the youth of the Fort Peck Native American Reservation in Montana via a charitable arm called “Love Has No Color”. Here is the thing, if you are still reading you know where I am going with this newsletter, I am going to ask for money! You’re absolutely right, I will ask for money and any other kind of resource I can for these incredible kids that by no fault of their own were born into a very difficult situation. Life on the reservation is incredibly harsh, rife with abuse of drugs and alcohol, teen pregnancy, as well as the highest rates of teen suicide in the country, disease, unemployment, poverty, high dropout rates from school and hopelessness. This August we are looking to bring 2000 backpacks full of school supplies, 20 tons of high quality, non perishable food and we are also going to repair an orphanage with 16 boys that really need our help.
“Love Has No Color is dedicated to wiping out extreme hopelessness on Native American Reservations across the country. We are currently helping Native Americans on the Fort Peck Reservation in Eastern Montana. Love Has No Color is recognized as a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt public charity. We do not simply hand out gifts and money to the Reservation; we provide programs and support to enhance and brighten the futures of each and every child.We help Native American children living in third world conditions right here in the United States. This is a partnership with the tribes, not a charity or handout. We help people to help themselves. We provide them with hope, self-esteem building activities, and many other tools so they understand there is life beyond the reservation. Time is running out for these people. The suicide rate for children is one of the highest anywhere in this country. We bring awareness to the wretched conditions America’s first people must endure. Once people witness the situation, almost 100% of the time, they’re eager to help out. You can actually see results and changed lives because of your involvement. Their needs go beyond poverty, crime, drugs, and obesity…they have had their human rights and dignity stolen from them. This is not a once-a-year mission where we are there for a short time and then leave. We are a continuous, integral part of their community. We have formed a partnership with the tribe.
Love Has No Color is a partnership with the Assiniboine/Sioux tribes to end extreme hopelessness for Children on the Fort Peck Reservation. With Chiropractic care for the children, youth fitness initiatives (like our street hockey rink and basketball court), and life changing seminars, LHNC is slowly changing the way that the kids at Fort Peck think about their future. We, with the help of The Tribe, restore the health, dignity, cultural identity, traditional values and hope to all on the Fort Peck Reservation.”

Pediatric Chiropractic Recommendations
I strongly recommend for all babies to have their spine and nerve system evaluated evaluated and adjusted as needed on a regular basis (as early as a few hours/days old). I check my son for misalignmenmts on a regular basis, and he gets adjusted on a regular (weekly) basis. Not because something is wrong with him, but because I want for him to be able to express his full human potential. This potential, the way we function, heal and think is abstracted and interfered with by spinal misalignments. My son, my wife and myself will keep getting regular chiropractic care as long as we are around.
Saturday hours 8-10am are available by appointment. Remember, the best time to start feeling better and taking care of your health and your family’s health is right NOW! If you, or members of your family have health concerns; please don’t hesitate to call me and make an appointment.
Love Has No Color
It that time of the year again when my office is fund raising for the Love Has No Color Project where we help kids on the native american reservations at Fort Peck and Wolf Point Poplar, Montana. These kids are leaving in third world conditions. Hunger, abuse, disease, high dropout rate from school, teen suicide rate higher than the national average and more. We have an opportunity to make a difference, actually over the past 11 years, The New Renaissance humanitarian efforts have done just that. We actually got to witness the teen suicide rate go down drastically over the past few years. More than anything else, we bring hope to these kids. We have fun days with them, we donate thousands of backpacks full with school supplies, donate food to the families on the reservation and refurbish old houses. This is all because of your donations. I will be posting more about this project in the coming weeks. If you are interested to participate please ask me how you can help.
One way to donate and learn in the process is through Crowrise

If you’ve checked a few items on the questionnaire that cause you concern, I recommend that you take advantage of our complimentary Baseline Assessment
Baseline Health Assessments For Kids
The major focus in my office is on kids and the health of their brains and nervous systems. I believe that every child has the birthright and the potential to be healthy and vital so they may develop to be a wonderful, healthy adult.
As a new father, I understand the special mix of concerns, hopes and excitement we for our children, their health and their overall well-being. Over the past 10 years I have dedicated my life to gain the knowledge and tools to help families raise healthy and happy children.
Over the past few years I have noticed a dramatic increase in cases of pediatric health issues. These issues vary drastically from emotional, behavioral and personality changes, to sensory integration problems, developmental delays, immunity, learning disabilities and more. These serious health issues are the daily reality to many parents in our community and many of my patients.
So many of these parents are unaware that impairment, or damage to the nerve system is not always about pain. It can cause subtle (and not so subtle) changes in a child’s development that can affect everything from personality and behavior to adaptation, creativity, and more. My mission and calling in life is to help these kids and their families regain their health and quality of life. As part of my effort to help my community it is essential that I inform and educate as many parents as I can about the early signs of nerve system dysfunction and the devastating effects it has on kid’s development.
We developed this incredible assessment tool (the colored wheel) so parents can recognize any health issues and take action early in their child development and improve the outcome. We’ve seen incredible results with these kind of issues when action and commitment were taken by parents. Call today to schedule this non invasive baseline assessment for your child. The best part is that it only takes a few minutes and it is at my expense!
I am excited to introduce baseline assessments for all children!
This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to get the answers that you are looking for. There are only a handful of chiropractors in the nation that are offering these baseline assessments and treatment for children. Watch the video to learn more.
