Gently restoring healthy joint function

By Dr. Melanie Brown | Originally posted at The Mountain Times on 03/31/23 Our professor in chiropractic school would say, “We do not crack backs; we restore healthy joint function!” Unfortunately, some people shy away from chiropractic therapy because they don't like the idea of their joints being “cracked.” Thus, most chiropractors don't use that terminology to describe chiropractic joint manipulation.

Tenacious D: Benefits of the vital vitamin

Dr. Melanie Brown | Originally published by The Mountain Times on 03/01/2023 When we were in Maui for Christmas this year, we wanted to “bottle it up” and take it home. Our lingering colds disappeared, our moods improved, and our energy increased. Unfortunately, you can't bring the beach back with you.

Pure Life - Good Health and Nature

Nature Walks Can Start You Down Path to Good Health

Dr. Melanie Brown | Originally published in Mountain Times | October 1, 2022 We ran into friends at Wildwood Park for the second time a few weeks ago. When I said, “Fancy seeing you here again,” they asserted that nature walks were a part of their healthcare plan. Brilliant! If only more people would think this way! No “magic pill” exists for good health, but nature cures! Time in nature is...

Healthy Eating Can Improve School Performance

Dr. Melanie Brown Originally published in The Mountain Times on 09/01/22 School is back in session, and many parents will get back to preparing school lunches for their kids. The local universal free lunch program ending in the public schools gives us another incentive to prepare lunches at home. However, they might worry about how to promote healthy eating when they're in a hurry every morning to get out the door. PURE LIFE...
