I like to start my morning with a routine that sets the tone for the rest of my day. Part of that routine is drinking a cup of tea to fuel my body with essential vitamins, minerals, and nutrients. In the winter months, this is especially helpful to add an armor of protection against all the bugs and viruses that come our way in Minnesota.

I am a chiropractor, and I practice solo in my office, so when stuff like this pops up, I need to close down my office. I also need to heal as quick as possible to open my doors back up. Not to mention being down with any illness when you have a toddler… ouch. Read more
