JANUARY 2019

5 GET GOOD, QUALITY SLEEP EVERY NIGHT. 6 AVOID TOXINS IN THE ENVIRONMENT, AND DETOXIFY ONCE A YEAR. 7 READ AND LISTEN TO POSITIVE INFORMATION. 8 VISUALIZE YOURSELF IN A HEALTHY, HAPPY STATE. 9 SURROUND YOURSELF WITH HAPPY, POSITIVE, UPLIFTING PEOPLE. 10 KEEP YOUR NERVOUS SYSTEM (WHICH CONTROLS YOUR ENTIRE BODY) FREE FROM INTERFERENCE BY HAVING YOUR SPINE ALIGNED WITH REGULAR SPINAL ADJUSTMENTS. We’re all recovering from the disasters that struck our area, and it serves as a reminder that anything can happen at any time. We need to be prepared for what may come, including health problems. If you want to have a fantastic 2019 and make sure you can be there for your loved ones for years

year has been a real challenge for them: My sister was diagnosed with cerebellar ataxia — a condition caused by the shrinkage of the cerebellar portion of the brain, which controls balance and gait. Since this affects how she walks, she ended up needing a knee replacement. While recovering from the knee surgery, she fell and broke her hip! As terrible as her condition is, if she hadn’t previously been in such a healthy condition, her recovery would have been insurmountable ... which brings me to you! I hope you are thinking about your health goals for 2019. Maybe your goal will be to lose weight, get stronger, have more energy, eliminate pain, reduce medications, etc. These are all essential, and we are here to help you achieve your goals in all these categories. However, you need to fix the foundation of your body so that, if you have a health crisis, your body can heal more quickly and efficiently. I call it “health disaster preparedness.” These are the crucial steps to follow for the improvement of your health — not just in the new year, but for the rest of your life: 1 MOVE YOUR BODY AT LEAST 30 MINUTES A DAY. 2 HYDRATE — DRINK MORE WATER. 3 BE COGNIZANT OF WHAT YOU ARE GRATEFUL FOR, EVERY DAY. 4 FUEL YOUR BODY WITH HEALTHY FOODS.

Happy New Year’s from my family — and my amazing team, Rosey and Diana! We were thrilled to have our son Darren home with us for Thanksgiving weekend. We were able to visit with Susan’s family in Whittier and then stay with my sister and her husband, who live on the beautiful island of Coronado, near San Diego. Susan always says that Coronado Island, with its beautiful beach and the Hotel Del Coronado, is her “happy place.” During the holidays, they even have an ice skating rink on the beach!

When we got home, we said goodbye to our son as he embarked on a 6-month bicycle tour through Europe. For Christmas, we flew to Denver, Colorado, to spend it with our daughter Marissa, her new husband, Bryan, and their two dogs. We even took our dog, Pippi, on the airplane with us. My sister, Christi, and her husband, Tom, who are in their 80’s, have always been very active and healthy. Tom used to be an avid mountain climber, and they were always physically active outdoors. They have really taken care of their health throughout the years. However, this

to come, this is the list to work on. Fix these areas, and watch your joy and happiness soar!
