Best part of my job is:
✅helping families learn a holistic spin on what life throws your way.
✅2nd best part is getting hugs, holding babies and kids telling me they play “Dr. Heidi” at home.
✅3rd best part...babies like this one with thighs for days! Deliciously adorable. 🍎🍎🍎
Kids need chiropractic too! Have their spine and pelvis checked as they learn to crawl, walk and run. If they are not crawling normally, butt scooting or using one leg out as a tripod you need to bring them in!!
Ideally we would see them from the start so we can monitor the shape of their head, strength of their neck as they lift it up and make sure they tolerate tummy time. Don’t let your kiddos get a flat head! That tummy time it’s absolutely necessary. As babies learn how to walk they fall a lot. Let’s keep their spine and pelvis in check.
Pediatric chiropractic care is not only extremely gentle but it is important for the growth and development of a child. My favorite thing is teaching children what their body should feel like so they know when something off. We want to equip children with the tools necessary for self-care emotionally and physically!!

Ever hear that you should start your day with warm lemon water? But do you know WHY?? It stimulates your liver to dump out the toxins, kickstarts your digestive system to get your juices flowing, boosts energy without caffeine and provides antioxidants to keep you youthful. Why WOULDN’T you drink it daily? I also grate in fresh ginger and add a spoonful of ginger juice to aid in digestion and have a heavy dose of anti inflammatory benefit. Try it!
Another year older...another year wiser! I had a great birthday filled with loving messages, flowers, cakes and hugs and kisses. 🎂 🎂 thank you everyone!! You know how to make a gal feel special.
That’s my goal this year-better self care. I’ve only got this one body and I must be kinder to it. I guess that wisdom comes once you no longer can hop out of bed without stretching first!
Brrr. It’s cold and snowy and I’m a lazy lump who doesn’t feel like doing anything but baking and then eating it. Moms...ever wish someone would take of you, feed you a yummy lunch and tuck you in for a nap? That’s where I’m at today. The Tank is at zero. So, today I will listen to my body begging for rest and not ignore the signals. January always seems to catch up with me.
Huck a buck is a bread that is baked in a Waldorf Early Childhood program. It is soooo good right outta the oven! Usually I slather it in honey butter and top with some sliced apples. But today I was craving pumpkin. And I have a recipe for pumpkin butter is was dying to make using my essential oils to bump up the flavor.
Did you know you can use food grade essential oil’s to amplify flavor of your food? There’s only one brand that has it on the market. Young Living. For years I bought food flavoring for brownies and frosting and such at places like Williams Sonoma and Sur La Table. Now I can just use my oils!
I used the recipe from the Essential Edge news magazine that Young Living puts out. Here is the recipe:
Ingredients needed for apple pumpkin butter
One 15 ounce can pumpkin
1 3/4 of a cup unsweetened applesauce
2/3 of a cup maple syrup
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
One cinnamon stick
1 inch piece of freshly grated ginger
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 to 2 drops each of cinnamon bark vitality oil, clove vitality oil and nutmeg vitality oil from Young Living
Bring the pumpkin, apple sauce, maple syrup, lemon juice, cinnamon stick and grated ginger to a simmer in a large sauce pan. Cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally until the butter thickens, about 45 minutes. Add vanilla and essential oils. Simmer on low for 10 minutes until the butter is desired spreadable consistency. Pour into clean jars, cover and refrigerate. Spread on toast, dip apples into it or eat by the spoonful!
