May Health Retreat Cancelled

Hello All,
Thanks for your interest in our upcoming health retreat.  Regrettably we will not be holding the May retreat this year.  We hope to be back up and humming some time later in the fall and look forward to sharing our passion for health and healing with you all………….beachside!         Seek Health!

Success……….what does that mean to you?

I have been thinking about achieving goals recently!  We all have so much opportunity…….so much potential and yet so often we fail to mine it completely.  There is so much more we can do.  I am sure you all know someone you look at and go, “Wow, how did they…I mean how do they.”  I know I have quite a few people in my life that make me feel that way.  The question is why are we not fulfilling our potential.  Or if we are, how did we achieve this level of action?

Here is my thought for all of us today!  ‘Success starts and ends as a thought”   How will you craft your thoughts today?

Dr Esser featured in Mayo Clinic Resident Education Videos

I was recently featured in several Mayo Clinic Musculoskeletal exam videos to help educate doctors in training so they are more competent in their examination of the limbs and spine!  Any time I can help positively influence the education and thus the future patient care of our docs it is a real pleasure.  Hopefully they will go on to use the info we shared for good in the decades ahead.  

Dr Esser quotes in Folio Weekly

Massage can be a powerful adjunctive or a primary method of care depending on your diagnosis and health goals.  I was recently interviewed regarding the benefits and applicability of massage for Jacksonville’s Folio Weekly Health and Beauty Edition.   Enjoy the read:  Folio Weekly: That Touch of Healing

The Science is Clear

When I was a young lad, sitting in a mango tree in Lake Worth, FL and listening to my Grandfather Dr William Esser ND DC I always thought there must not be real science to support the truth of lifestyle medicine.  I thought, if there was; how could anyone not believe and live what seemed so obvious.  I mean, gosh everyone who comes to the Ranch improves.  Not always 100% but no one came without some improvement in their symptoms.  Surely if science would just show that all this was for real then no one would do anything different.
So when I went on to medical school, I assumed that the studies, the evidence just wasn’t there.  But then I found out the truth.  The science was there.  The evidence was there, both large epidemiologic studies, prospective studies and on and on….ad nauseum……
I learned a hard truth to this day…..just because the evidence is nearly incontrovertible doesn’t mean people will change or live out there lives a certain way.  It doesn’t mean people will choose to do what is “right”   or what is “good” and health promoting for them.  No, unfortunately despite remarkable clarity in the vast majority of studies that whole food plant-based nutrition is an essential component of health, the overwhelming majority of academic societies, organized business and other organizations fail to promote it to the public.  As a result, much mis-information is promoted and the cycle of illness, decay, dysfunction and premature death continue.
But, there is hope.  There is a renaissance in this message and it is going on all around us.  There is a new and exciting energy for spreading the truth and the validity of this message.  Together we have the opportunity to take back our collective health and to hand on to the next generation a message of hope, of healing, of wellness, of empowerment.  You and I do not have to suffer such heavy burdens of sickness, and the most powerful forces leading to our best health are our feet, fingers and forks!
