The Chiropractor's WifeThis is a blog about my learning curve on functional medicine and natural health, plus some of the enlightening (and slightly strange) adventures I've had with my chiropractor. Enjoy! -Shannon
Find out how bok choy for breakfast changed my life and how it ties in to our dramatic love story…
Did y'all know that pretty much anyone can make their own supplements, label them as whatever they want, and sell them to whoever will buy them? It's actually pretty nuts, especially when you're an average joe like me who is trusting the recommendations of others...
What our relationship has to do with calcium and magnesium…
April of 2018 was a rough rough time. We had a death in the family, I had a bad flu, and then I became acquainted with “frozen shoulder.” Prior to this I had never heard that phrase or diagnosis. I still don’t completely understand it, but this is what happened to me
When we suddenly found ourselves with regular 3 day weekends (thanks to the excitement of 2020), we made it a priority to get out into nature more. The state of Georgia has an elaborate state park system and we’ve been on a mini-crusade to see as much of it as we can.
The Chiropractor and I have made many trips to Stone Mountain, Georgia together, but more frequently I’ve gone up and down the mountainside solo. A couple of years ago I decided I wanted to do some training for an upcoming trip, too.
Fermentation is a little bit of a mystery to me. I really like most fermented foods (as long as they’re not too spicy) but I don’t quite get the science behind it. And something about the “mother” or “scoby” in the drinks still kinda grosses me out. I’ve never had a burning desire to do my own fermenting.
My 7 year-old nephew Ben is a big fan of his Uncle Brandt. He has been ever since we moved to the area almost 3 years ago. He once told his mom that when he grows up he wants to “crack bones and drink spinach smoothies” like The Chiropractor.
If you never knew Dr. Ryan Adams–Dr. Brandt Adams’ brother–and aren’t aware of how Foundation Chiropractic began, you should know the story because there’s a compelling thread of brother-love that has kept this practice going
How I learned from the Chiropractor’s grandmother to make a powerful herbal tea to promote wellness The thought of making your own herbal tea from anything besides a premade tea bag was foreign to me until I met The Chiropractor.
