Maintenance vs Pain Relief Care

I’ve been talking to a number of patients about this lately, so I thought it would be a good idea to share my thoughts on this. There are 2 camps of people who use chiropractic care—those who wait until they are hurting to come in, and those who come in proactively around a once a […]

Dr. E’s Immune-Boosting Salsa & Hummus

Salsa 4 medium tomatoes Small handful of cilantro 2-4 cloves of garlic, depending on how much you love your fellow man Hot pepper of your choosing, depending on masochistic tendencies.
