How Do You Define “FREEDOM” In Living Life?
Instinctively, many of us believe FREEDOM is synonymous with one’s ability to participate in boundless (over indulging) pleasures available in life. Although we’re capable of intellectualizing the consequences of this type of “freedom,” hormonally, we’re frequently driven to override our intellect to satisfy our emotional desires. HOW DO WE COMBAT THIS UNHEALTHY REACTIVE BEHAVIOR FREQUENTLY […]

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.

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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
Understanding Our Naive Fear Of Disease
Why shaking hands is out at the Olympics? “Olympians are told to fist-bump, not shake hands, to prevent the spread of norovirus.” Let’s begin this post by excluding the obvious…when skiers are wearing mittens, how does “fist bumping” offer greater protection from bacterial or viral infections than shaking hands? Clearly it doesn’t, but consumers would […]
VACCINES: May or May not SAFELY protect children from Viral or Bacterial infections, but will NEVER safeguard children from today’s CHRONIC DISEASES
This statement by Robert F. Kennedy Jr. does NOT support OR oppose the concept of vaccinations. It simply PROVES that vaccines alone are NOT enough to prevent the growing rates of childhood chronic diseases. . WHAT IS A PARENT’S ROLE IN REDUCING THEIR CHILD’S CHANCES FOR DEVELOPING CHRONIC DISEASES? . 1. Understanding the role NUTRITION […]
HEALTHY CHILDREN FROM AN ADULT PERSPECTIVE
What do you believe plays a more important role in the development of healthy children? Eating healthy, exercising, playing in a social environment with other children, getting adequate sleep, drinking adequate amounts of water, family love, spiritual guidance OR Receiving up to 72 Vaccinations from the age of 0-18? . If we stopped vaccinating children […]
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 […]
ARE YOU IN CONTROL?
When it comes to the length and the quality of our lives, there is no plan of action that guarantees results. That being said, there are choices we can make that increase the chances for longer healthier lives. When Babe Ruth picked up his first baseball bat he wasn’t a natural home run hitter. When […]
IF I HAD A MILLION DOLLARS TO GIVE AWAY, WOULD I HAVE TO FORCE YOU TO TAKE IT?
When the average consumer is exposed to a service or product that is guaranteed to benefit them without any financial cost, is it typically necessary to FORCE them to use it? Why then is it necessary to mandate by law a vaccine policy to FORCE every child to receive up to 72 vaccinations between the […]
THE HUMAN MARIONETTE
Although you may not see or feel the strings, many in society today are controlled by the “medical puppeteer.” We choose not to view our lives from this perspective, but objectively, our actions follow patterns they control. As human marionettes, we’re not interested in the causes of our health conditions and diseases. As human marionettes, […]
LISTEN CLOSELY: Pills and injectables DO NOT CURE chronic diseases!
For sixty years, Martha Ann Lillard has lived with an iron lung to sustain life. An infectious disease overwhelmed her childhood immune system causing irreparable damage. This unfortunate outcome was not based on any personal lifestyle choices she made. Although she lives today, it is important to recognize that 60 years of iron lung therapy […]
Why Americans Fear The Flu, But Don’t Fear Type 2 Diabetes
As we head into “flu season” flu shot advertisements are seen everywhere. Let’s step back for a moment and look at the REAL NUMBERS to determine where our FEARS need to be focused: The Flu: 5% to 20% — Between 9.2 – 35.6 million people in the U.S. will get the flu each year. 200,000 […]
SHOULD IT BE DEFINED “UNINTENTIONAL CHILD ABUSE?”
Whether we choose to have children or it is simply the result of an intimate interlude, society must create boundaries to protect children unable to protect themselves. We acknowledge these responsibilities when we see the physical harm children suffer. Broken bones, serious bruises indicating possible internal bleeding, cigarette burns, etc… are criminal acts we witness […]
Can We Rely On ANY Health Care System To Create Healthy Living?
The United States offers many opportunities in life that many other nations can’t match. Unfortunately, remaining HEALTHY as one ages is not one of these benefits. (REFERENCE: How the Performance of the U.S. Health Care System Compares Internationally) When comparing our Health Care System internationally, the U.S. ranked 11th out of 11 nations. We ranked […]
