THE TIPPING POINT IN HEALTH AND DISEASE

Health and Disease (as it relates to the Human behavioral component) is based on the premise of “THE TIPPING POINT.” Whether we choose to proactively participate in a plan of action designed to improve our chances to avoid disease and dysfunction or choose to passively rely on an event in life (ex. diagnosis of adult […]

A FICTIONAL LETTER FROM A FICTIONAL PATIENT AND MY FICTIONAL RESPONSE: DOES IT RESONATE WITH YOU?

Dear Dr. Colter, After you performed an exam on me and determined I needed multiple lifestyle changes to progress toward better health, I decided to visit my primary physician. You scared me and I needed reassurance that you were WRONG! My primary physician reviewed my history and asked me what the problem was? I told […]

Thank You For Creating So Much Wealth For My Profession

Ever since I became a physician my goal was empowering patients with information and knowledge. This information and knowledge was supposed to equip them with better lifestyle choices to increase their chances for healthier outcomes in order to pursue abundant opportunities in life. How naive was I? Whether we phrase it Good vs. Evil or […]

KETOGENIC NUTRITION: A HEALTHY APPROACH TO EATING I WOULD NOT RECOMMEND TO THE AVERAGE PERSON

You read the title correctly!! Although there are many health benefits to ketogenic nutrition, it would be a mistake for the average person to jump on the bandwagon and follow this nutrition plan blindly. …and let me add: THIS IS THE PLAN I FOLLOW EVERY DAY! So, why would I discourage a plan I follow? […]

HOW HUMAN DENIAL EXPLAINS A MAJORITY OF DISEASES WE SUFFER FROM

After years of treating patients and studying the diseases they’ve faced, I’ve reached the conclusion a majority of diseases were NOT caused by genetics or germs, but rather: DENIAL . You’re probably saying, “you’re wrong, Dr. Colter”. Heart Disease, Cancer, Type 2 Diabetes, Stroke, Infectious Diseases, etc… are the leading CAUSES of disease and death! […]

WANT TO EXPERIENCE BETTER HEALTH: Stop worrying how others judge you and START relying on how you judge YOURSELF!

As a physician, I never owned the multi-million dollar clinic. I ran a LOWER volume practice. I rented a 1200sq/ft facility in a strip center. I had two treatment rooms. I practiced under these conditions for over 20 years. Doesn’t sound very glamorous does it? The title physician or doctor typically generates a more glamorous […]

SUCCESSFUL “DIETING” FOR WEIGHT LOSS

As a physician who provided nutritional guidance for my patients, I learned over time what it took to help them succeed on their journey to weight loss. It was clear that those focusing predominantly on the scale would unlikely succeed at losing weight and/or MAINTAINING weight loss. I began noticing a pattern emerging that demonstrated […]

WHEN IS THE RIGHT TIME TO CHOOSE?

When is the right time to choose between: a typical nutritional lifestyle including pizza, pasta, fast food or ice cream and TYPE 2¬†DIABETES? When is the right time to choose between: a typical sedentary lifestyle and HEART DISEASE? When is the right time to choose between: a typical “spiraling out of control” lifestyle and DEPRESSION?

IT’S NOT YOUR FAULT…YEAH, IT IS!

Doctors¬† may have discovered causes that validate destructive human behavior and the unhealthy patterns we tend to follow, but it doesn’t conclusively define one’s destiny. Relying on the cognitive (RATIONAL) mind and the foundational structures we establish (via quality patterns of behavior) we have repeatedly demonstrated how capable we are in determining (to a large […]

THE “NEED TO EXPERIENCE”

The Chinese finger trap is designed to prevent escape. When a finger on each hand is inserted inside this apparatus and pulled in opposite directions, this devise traps both fingers making escape very difficult. If we showed this finger trap to people and explained just how difficult it would be to free their fingers once […]

ARE WE CHOOSING SUICIDE

Suicide is defined as: “the act or instance of taking one’s own life voluntarily and intentionally”. . When we choose to avoid essential lifestyle needs: regular quality nutrition adequately portioned regular exercise daily adequate quantities of water intake regular channeling of stress in a positive manner regular adequate sleep regular quality social interaction with family […]

THE ONGOING SEARCH FOR “CURES”

In America, we tend to approach the concept of “health” from a “disease” perspective. We think in terms of health “crises,” health “maladies” (“conditions,”) health “compromises,” etc… The reason we view health from this perspective is because we don’t typically think about our health until something goes wrong. Quite frequently, this is how we approach […]

“Why Monitor A Problem If You’re Not Going To Fix It?”

“Why Monitor A Problem If You’re Not Going To Fix It?” Lifelock, a personal credit monitoring company regularly uses this quote in their advertising. Lifelock differentiates itself from its competitors by accepting ACCOUNTABILITY and taking action to help RESOLVE potential credit fraud (rather than simply pointing out that fraud has been committed.) If, as consumers […]

HELLO, MY NAME IS (YOUR NAME) AND I AM UNHEALTHY

Wow….kinda sounds like an opening comment made at an alcoholics anonymous meeting! Fortunately (YOUR NAME) doesn’t believe (he or she) suffers from this “unhealthy” status and can continue to follow the current path without eventual harmful ramifications. Although everyone has the right to follow their own chosen path, it may be time to reconsider your […]

…JUST WAIT…

I know I should eat better and exercise …just wait… I know I should drink more water …just wait… I know cancer, heart disease, stroke and diabetes is on the rise …just wait… To be honest, I feel fine and enjoy living the lifestyle I’m living …just wait… I can live with taking medications if […]

DO WE TREAT OUR HEALTH LIKE WE TREAT OUR CAR TIRES?

The tire on the left has gone through many miles of wear. As the tread shallows and the rubber weakens the tire begins to lose its ability to perform in a safe manner. It also begins failing to maintain its air pressure. The shallow treads produce minimal to no SYMPTOMS. The only tangible symptom the […]

SYNERGISM: The Path To Good Health Or Disease

Most of us view the concept of Good Health and Disease in simple terms. Good Health is viewed as a state of existence without symptoms or where symptoms exist without interfering with quality of life or function. Disease or “ill health” is viewed as a situation where symptoms directly interfere with quality of life and/or […]

SAFETY IN THE IMPRISONED MIND

For more than three years I have shared realities about health, nutrition and exercise that many have never been exposed to. It has elicited reactions that have ranged from simple curiosity to extreme outrage. These realities have demonstrated the harms we’ve faced following industry guidelines established by organizations with conflicting interests. These conflicting interests often […]
