Vitamin D Supplementation for Fall & Winter Months

Written by Dr. Pete Haggenjos.

I am in favor of obtaining nutrients through real food sources as much as possible. Yet, Vitamin D is tricky. Our bodies only produce Vitamin D through 30 minutes of direct sun exposure in the warm months of the year. From October to April, most people in this part of the world lack adequate sun exposure for optimal Vitamin D levels.

Healthy Fats & Oils

Written by Dr. Pete Haggenjos.

My kitchen is stocked with olive oil, coconut oil, and butter from pastured, grass fed cows. If you asked most Americans if they thought my fat and oil selections were healthy, they would probably only agree with the olive oil.

“It’s my genes….”

Written by Dr. Pete Haggenjos.

Genetics play an important role in creating who we are, yet there is more to the story than most realize. The field of epigenetics (‘above the gene’ or ‘on the gene’) is revealing that genes can be essentially switched on or off based on many environmental factors….including our own thoughts!

Unnecessary Antibiotic Use Creating Problems

Written by Dr. Pete Haggenjos.

Recommendations for Baby-Carriers, Strollers, and Good Spinal Health for Kids

Written by Dr. Pete Haggenjos.

This website has some great information and research for parents. It is the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association. Just like for adults, even babies and children should not be limited to the same position for long periods of time. Movement is the key! In the case of babies, this means holding them in a variety of different positions, not keeping them in one position all day.
