The Backstory On Jen And Mary

Part 1Part 2 

One day long ago…

Mentor: Question for you today Mary… how would you define health?

Mary: I guess I would say health is feeling good, feeling full of energy, not having any issues to complain about, and… ummm (long pause)

Mentor: Okay, that is what most people say. What if I told you that is a very incomplete, and in fact, very dangerous way to define health?

Mary: I would say… tell me what the right answer is. (laughter)

Mentor: I will, but before I do that, let me quickly explain why that definition is so incomplete and dangerous. Do you know how many people FEEL happy and healthy, but end up with cancer or heart disease?  It happens everyday, and to a lot of people. My point is, just because a person FEELS healthy doesn’t mean they are healthy. In fact, cancer and heart disease can silently develop over several years before people start feeling anything at all. That’s why 5 out of 6 people will develop heart disease or cancer in their lifetime. So, there has to be a better way to define health than just going by how you FEEL, right?

Mary: When you put it like that – I should hope so!

Mentor: That’s why so many people are sick nowadays. They have never been taught how to define health, and therefore approach it properly. If it’s okay with you, let’s talk a little more about this while we get you adjusted today, okay?

Mary: Sounds good to me Doc.

Mentor: Let me ask you a question… Do you think it’s easier to maintain your health than it is to regain it once it’s been lost?

Mary: My father always said it’s easier, and less expensive, to maintain your car than it is to repair it once it breaks down.

Mentor: Great analogy. Can you see how that might apply to the current state of our health care system?

Mary: I guess so. The system seems to cater more to the breakdown mentality than to the maintenance mentality. When I say that, I think of my sister and people like her.

Mentor: You are right, it is a flawed and failing system. But, I think it’s failure serves a purpose. Maybe we needed to see what happens when we fail to understand health and lose focus on what’s really important?

Mary: I think I see where you are going with this. We are taught to go to the doctor when we feel bad so we can feel better again. But, we never really learn what caused the problem in the first place. Therefore, we never learn how to change our thinking or our behavior. We just keep repeating the same mistake over and over again.

Mentor: Precisely! I understand we all want to feel great, but there is a right way and a wrong way to going about it. It all starts with how you define health. Get it right, and you will live very well. Get it wrong, and you will end up like everyone else… heart disease, cancer or both.

Mary: Okay, so how do you define health Doc?

Mentor: I was hoping you would ask. The best definition of health from the World Health Organization is this… health is optimal function, a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being, and not merely the absence of symptoms or disease. Long ago, I was taught that if I focused on improving function in my body, I could better control how I feel. That made a lot of sense to me. Since then, that is what I focus on daily, the chiropractic F-word… FUNCTION. My entire lifestyle revolves around function. How I eat, sleep, stand, sit, think, supplement, exercise, etc. That is why I still go and get adjusted myself, even when I feel fine!

Mary: Basically, most people are missing the boat by only focusing on, or defining health, by how they feel?

Mentor: Exactly! Again, health is optimal function physically, chemically, emotionally, and not merely the absence of symptoms or disease.

Mary: So, you are saying that if a person can focus on function, they will subsequently feel better as a result? Basically that is how you get to have your cake and eat it too?

Mentor: Yes! Now you are getting it!

Mary: That’s what I like about our conversations. I always learn to look at things differently. Like I said before, you are the only doctor I know that talks about stuff like this.

Mentor: I know. Imagine how different the world would be if more doctors were having discussions like this with their patients.

Mary: (sigh) Again, I can’t help but think of my sister, Jen. She seems to be in a downward spiral. She has all these doctors appointments, takes all these medications, and none of it seems to be making a difference at all.

Mentor: She probably isn’t being coached to focus on cause versus effect, function and lifestyle like you are. She needs to change her ways, like you did, before it’s too late!

Mary: I keep telling her that, and just when I think I am getting to her, she falls back into her old ways.

Mentor: I know how that goes. I have conversations like this all day long with so many people. They seem to agree with me at first, but as soon as they start feeling fine again, they lose focus and go right back to their old ways.

Mary: You must get really frustrated with people.

Mentor: It can be frustrating. But people like you, the ones that really get it and appreciate it, are the ones that keep me going. People like you keep me excited about what we are doing for people here. Speaking of which, let’s make sure you got this. Pop quiz Mary, what controls most of the functions in your body?

Mary: My nervous system, which includes the spinal cord that runs through my spine, which is why I come see you. You ask me that like every visit Doc.

Mentor: I know. I know.  It’s just such an important thing to know and appreciate, I want to make sure you never forget it. I also want to make sure you learn to appreciate it for what it really is. Remember this, your nervous system is your body’s operating system. It regulates function from head to toe, thus it regulates your health. With that being said, here is the takeaway for today… when defining health, you have to consider how well the operating system is controlling bodily function. If it is doing it well, you will be in good shape. If it is doing it poorly, your health will surely be compromised – which CAN happen without you even feeling it!

Mary: I never heard you say it like that before, but that makes sense.

Mentor: You could rework the definition to say, health is optimal nervous system FUNCTION.

Mary: So, if I just come see you, get my spine and nervous system “tuned-up”… I will be fine, right?

Mentor: (laughter) Although that may be a big part of the picture, it’s not that simple Mary. I want you to leave this conversation thinking this… in addition to getting chiropractic adjustments, how many other ways can you improve your lifestyle to improve how your nervous system functions.

Mary: I think I am starting to put it all together. But, how do I know what increases or decreases nervous system function? I might know how to define health and function, but how do I know if I am doing enough? There must be a lot to it, right?

Mentor: That is an awesome question! I am working on a simple checklist you can use to measure how you are doing in this area of life. It will take a lot of the hard work and guess work out it for you. I’ll share that with you on your next visit, okay?

Mary: You are awesome Doc. Thanks for doing what you do.

Mentor: You are welcome Mary. Hey, two more things… First, keep forwarding those emails and sharing these conversations with others, especially your sister. Second, your kids are due for a checkup. I saw your husband yesterday for his regular visit, and mentioned that to him as well. I know they may be feeling good, but we need to make sure their bodies are functioning properly as well, okay?

Mary: Already planned on doing that on my way out today.

Mentor: Of course you did. I am going to start calling you Super Mom.

Mary: (giggle) Shhh, don’t blow my cover Doc.

Mentor: See ya in two weeks Mary.

The Conclusion…

  • Your personal definition of health is more important than you think. It dictates how much you will have and for how long.
  • Put your focus on improving how your body functions, and you will subsequently reap the rewards of controlling how you feel.
  • The key to outrageous health is optimizing function from the inside-out. A form of health care, like chiropractic, combined with a well designed lifestyle is the truest path to achieving this goal.
  • There is always room for improvement… not matter who you are, or where you are at in life. Yes, you can!

Action Steps…

  • Review the action steps from last week’s Part 2 lesson.
  • Redefine your understanding and approach to health by putting more emphasis on function in your lifestyle.
  • Use chiropractic to keep your nervous system “tuned-up” and highly functional.
  • Stay Tuned For Part 4!

Lesson #2: The “Trick” To Mastering Your Health

Health and disease is not that complicated. We simply have to refine the way we think about it. This lesson can do just that!

Please HELP US spread the word by SHARING this page!


Remember, Jen and Mary are close sisters who live in Colorado. Jen is the one who is constantly struggling with her health, the idea of aging too fast, and uncertainty about what the future holds for her and her family. Mary is the one who seems to juggle life easily and comfortably, the one who always expresses optimism and certainty about the future for her and her family. Maybe you know someone like Jen and Mary?

Below is another important lesson Mary picked up long ago that changed her forever. In typical fashion, it came from a person she refers to as her health “mentor”. It’s a lesson we all need to hear and share.

The Backstory On Jen And Mary

Part 1

One Day Long Ago…

Mentor: Mary, we have talked about how the body is designed to heal itself and prevent disease, right?

Mary: Yea Doc, a bunch of times.

Mentor: Would you like to learn a little more?

Mary: Sure, why not.

Mentor: Have any of your previous doctors ever talked about this kind of stuff with you?

Mary: (chuckle) Actually, you’re the only doctor that has ever talked about stuff like this with me.

Mentor: Maybe that’s the reason why so many people are sick and tired these days, huh?

Mary: Good point!

Mentor: Let’s talk about something I got from my health mentor, who just so happened to be a chiropractor as well. He taught me that there are two important steps to mastering control of your health. The first, is understanding core principles of health. The second, is applying them daily.

Mary: Basically, being able to talk the talk, and walk the the walk, right?

Mentor: Exactly! So, tell me what we have learned so far together.

Mary: Well, I do believe the body was designed to heal itself. You also taught me that we are designed to live at least 100 years with good health, and that our body is designed to prevent or fight off disease when it’s strong, healthy and capable… and… ummm… (long pause)

Mentor: You can stop there. You already know more about health and disease than 99% of the people out there. Honestly, I am very proud of you – you have been paying attention!

Mary: Sure have.

Mentor: Mary, you get the concept… but, now you need to learn how to actually apply that understanding daily.

Mary: That’s the tricky part right?

Mentor: The “trick” as you call it is having the right mindset or perspective about health. The rest is simple daily habits. There really is no “trick” or magic bullet.

Mary: (groan) I knew you were were going to say that.

Mentor: Remember our first conversation long ago when you came to me for help with headaches and all those other issues we discovered? I talked about getting your body back in balance physically, neurologically, chemically, etc?

Mary: I remember that. You were the first doctor who actually wanted to focus on the cause rather than the symptom.

Mentor: Right, and another takeaway from that conversation should have been this principle… our body can only heal itself and prevent disease WHEN functioning properly.

Mary: Yup, I remember that too.

Mentor: Do you remember what controls all function in your body Mary?

Mary: Duh… the nervous system, which includes the spinal cord that runs through my spine, which is why I come see you. (laughter)

Mentor: (laughter) Now you are just showing off. But seriously, most people don’t understand what you just said. You now know how the nervous system sends messages to all other parts of the body, and when that communication system is optimized, so is your ability to heal and promote health. Conversely, you know that when that system is even slightly compromised, then your health will be compromised, and so will your ability to heal and prevent disease. This is simply how the human body is designed to work, right?

Mary: Yea, I wish someone would have shared that principle with me a little earlier – especially after that whiplash accident in high school I told you about!

Mentor: Exactly! Okay, so let’s package up this idea so you can be on your way today. To maximize bodily function, you want to maximize nervous system function. This is what I mean by “application” or what you referred to as “walking the walk”. I’ll give you my top 6 lifestyle strategies in order of importance and why I do them. Are you ready?

Mary: Ready!

Mentor: Number one: I get my spine checked by a good Chiropractor regularly to make sure it is not causing interference, tension or stress to my brain-body communication system.

Mary: You get adjusted too?

Mentor: Of course I do!

Mary: Can’t you adjust yourself?

Mentor: (laughter) No Mary, that’s impossible. I will explain that later. Let’s get back to the list. Number two: I drink plenty of water everyday because I know that nerves, muscles, organs and glands are designed to be hydrated in order to function properly. Number three: I eat plenty of raw, energy filled foods everyday because I know my body’s design requires daily building blocks to create energy and repair itself. Number four: I supplement my diet with other essential nutrients that I know are low or missing in my diet. Number five: I exercise and stretch almost everyday, even if it’s only 10-15 minutes, because I know my body’s design requires movement to promote health. Number six: I take time everyday to train my brain to see the love and beauty in my life.

Mary: So, it’s all about keeping the body in balance like it’s designed to be, right? Quick question though. Why is love #6 and not #1?

Mentor: (sigh) Oh Mary, you didn’t open last weeks email from me did you?

Mary: Sorry Doc, I won’t lie. I got busy.

Mentor: Don’t be sorry. It’s okay. I send info like this to thousands of people every week. Only a small percentage of them make any us of it, and therefore benefit from it. But, Mary… I want YOU to be one of those people. Last week’s lesson was something you really, really need to hear and learn. Please go back and check it out, okay?

Mary: I will, I promise!

Mentor: Okay, let’s finish this. Remember what’s on the list? That is application. Everything there can be done easily and affordably. But, you can’t get lazy and just do some of the those things some of the time. Said another way, you CAN NOT be a dabbler Mary! It doesn’t work that way. The key to success is consistency. Remember, you simply have get your lifestyle aligned with your design and be consistent about it. If you do, you will find yourself living in a peak state of health like I do. Trust me… it is an awesome place to be!

Mary: Got it Doc. I’ll start working on it.

Mentor: I know you will. Hey, don’t forget to teach your friends and family what you learn here. Remember, their doctors are NOT talking about this stuff with them. Oh, and tell your sister Jen… she really needs to get in here so we can help her too.

Mary: I will Doc. Thanks for the talk. Thanks for everything!

Mentor: You betcha. See you in two weeks for your regular “tune-up”?

Mary: Wouldn’t miss it Doc!


The Conclusion…

  • Our body is only capable of doing what it is designed to do WHEN we take care of it the way it is designed to be cared for.
  • The nervous system is the conduit to healing and health. Maximize nervous system function and you will maximize your ability to heal and prevent disease.

Action Steps…


Per your body’s design requirements, what do you think you need to do more of or less of? EXAMPLES: More stretching and exercise? Less sitting without moving? Improve your ergonomics in the car, bed or at the desk?


Per your body’s design requirements, what do you think you need to consume more of or less of? EXAMPLES: More fruits and vegetables? Less processed foods? More essential fats and minerals? Less sugary beverages or foods? More water?


Are you strategically creating a positive emotional environment? EXAMPLES: More inspirational or relaxing music? Less noise from the news or radio? More prayer and meditation? Less unnecessary confrontation? More “I love you’s” in your day?

The Tale Of Two Sisters

Meet Jen And Mary…

Jen and Mary are sisters who have always remained close and connected. Jen is 2 years the elder at age 42. They were raised in Grand Rapids Michigan by two loving parents who still live in the same house they grew up in. Jen and Mary now reside in Colorado. Jen lives in Fort Collins, and Mary lives in Littleton.

Jen is a mother of 2 (ages 9 and 12). She lives a pretty ordinary life by her own decree. Jen is a stay at home mom who juggles soccer practice with music lessons amidst a dozen other activities on any given day. Unfortunately, the last several years have taken a toll on Jen. She struggles with low energy, bad sleep, weight gain and depression. She also has headaches every week and a new digestion issue that seems to getting worse with each passing month. Jen’s relationship with her husband, who is actually a really nice guy, is consistently stressed for one reason or another. Lastly, she absolutely dreads the idea of turning 43 next month.

Mary is a mother of 3 (ages 6, 8 and 10). She too lives what might be called an ordinary life. Mary works from home part time as a business consultant. She doesn’t have to work, but she likes the adult conversation it offers. She also likes to paint. Mary’ s daily routine is filled to the brim, but somehow everything gets done on schedule. She miraculously cooks most of the families food and is training for her first half marathon. Mary has a great relationship with her husband. They love cracking each other up every chance they can. Mary just got her yearly physical done, but has yet to tell anyone what the nurse had to say about it… “Whatever you are doing… is working really, really well. Can I have some?” She is silently savoring that moment. Maybe it’s because she just turned 40, but looks and moves better than she did 10 years ago.

Now that you know a little about Jen and Mary, let’s get on with it.

These two lives couldn’t be more different, could they?

Remember, they are very close sisters with virtually the same upbringing and life experiences.

One life is filled with stress, struggle, uncertainty and illness. The other is filled with energy, inspiration, confidence and vitality.

We all know someone like Jen or Mary, don’t we?

There is a reason these 2 lives are so different.

Would you like to know what it is?

Would you believe it has everything to do with a person Mary refers to as her “mentor”, a female Chiropractor she went to for headaches over 11 years ago.

Long story short, they got rid of the headaches. But, what she learned while under care was literally life changing, as you can see.

That brings us to the purpose of The Empowered Patient Project.

Call it whatever you want… The Empowered Sister, Brother, Mom, Dad, etc. This is a story we all need to hear. It is a story we all can learn and benefit from.

It is designed to help you discover what Mary learned long ago.

What does Mary know that her sister doesn’t? Why is it so easy for her to thrive, while Jen struggles? What are her secrets to living what she calls an “extraordinary life”?

You are about to find out.

Get ready… this story may change you in more ways than you can imagine!


P.S. Please share these stories, ideas and lessons with your family and friends. Maybe something they read or learn can help them?

THE TALE OF TWO SISTERS (a story we all can learn from)

Click here for the backstory on Jen and Mary

Remember, Jen thinks and behaves like most people. She puts everything else in her life above her own needs. As a result, Jen has completely neglected her health over the last several years. She feels old, out of shape, stiff and sore most of the time, unmotivated, and always tired. Her medical doctor is pushing to add another prescription to help with the fatigue and depression. She tells her doctor she just wants to get though the day and feel normal again. She is struggling, and as a result, so is her family and relationships.

Her sister Mary on the other hand, learned a very important lesson long ago. Her ‘mentor’, as she often refers to, taught her: “To be your best at caring for and loving others, you must take care of yourself first.” Since then, she has always carved out time to exercise, sometimes only 5-10 minutes before life calls her back. She has developed daily rituals for prayer and gratitude. Her lifestyle isn’t perfect, but she is always trying to improve how her body functions day to day. Mary is thriving, and as a result, so is her family and relationships.


Food For Thought…

The greatest gift we can ever give to those we love is… making our health a priority, never letting it ‘take a backseat’ to anything.


Health often takes a backseat to many things: kids, family, career, hobbies, deadlines, holidays, etc.

On the surface, this seems benign and harmless. But, could this be an enormous mistake with serious repercussions?

Take family for example…

Our health affects how we interact with those we love. It affects how we give love to others. It affects how long we will be around to love those we care about.

Mary was taught a very important lesson… the healthier a spouse or parent is, the better they can perform in that role.


Mentor: “Mary, why do they tell us to put the airplane oxygen mask on first before helping a child or loved one?

Mary: “Because if we are not alive and capable, we can’t help anyone else?”

Mentor: “Correct! Now, can you see the risk we take when we neglect ourselves in the process of caring for others? It is a far bigger risk than most people give credit to.”

Mary: “I do now! I need to work on that.”


People make sacrifices for others, and that’s a beautiful thing. But, to de-prioritize our own health may be the worst thing we could do for, or to, those we love.

Think about the agony a family member goes through watching their loved one suffer with illness.

Think about the monetary cost of managing a family member’s illness – it’s the #1 cause of bankruptcy in the U.S. for goodness sake!

This needs to stop, don’t you think?

The trick, the secret, is to finally understand this…

Our loved ones literally need us to make our health the highest priority.

By doing so, we massively improve our ability to care for them. By doing so, we can be a better example for them.

Look at Mary, she is thriving and happy. Subsequently, so is her family.


  • To continuously upgrade our understanding of health
  • To continuously improve our lifestyle and daily habits
  • To put our health first now so we don’t ‘put them through hell’ later
  • To make our own health a priority so we can love our family in bigger ways for longer

The Conclusion…

Learn and apply the ‘true definition of health’. Make improving health and function (the F-word) a daily priority. The stronger, healthier, wiser and more capable we are… the more we can give, love and live.

Action Steps…

Move Better

Make time for exercise and stretching (even if it’s only 10-15 minutes per day), get outside for a walk or hike, sweat a little because it’s good for you, get out of breathe and challenge yourself, go to your Chiropractor regularly, etc.

Eat Better

Eat at least one salad per day, drink more water, try to reduce your sugar intake a little bit every month, learn how to supplement your diet properly, create a diet and health challenge with a friend of spouse, set small goals and reward yourself, etc.

Think Better

Say a prayer every morning in the shower, listen to something positive while getting ready or on your commute instead of the radio, before arriving at work list out loud 10-20 things you are grateful for, read something inspiring, etc.

How to leverage your understanding of dental hygiene to advance your potential for wellness and longevity.


Please LIKE and SHARE this info?

Cliff Notes

*** Bonus points to the people who can read to the very end!

Everyone understands dental hygiene

Most people have daily hygiene habits and a dental hygiene program

There are benefits to having one, and consequences to not having one

Society accepts this as “the norm” and therefore benefits

Few people understand spinal hygiene

Most people do not have daily hygiene habits or a spinal hygiene program

There are benefits to having one, and consequences to not having one

Society has yet to accept this as “the norm” and therefore suffers

The principle and practice of spinal hygiene should be of no less value than that of dental hygiene

The health conscious individual has a Chiropractor just like they have a dentist

They encourage their family to adopt this line of thinking, and act accordingly

They do not wait for problems to arise, they act proactively to prevent them

If a problem arises, they address it quickly to prevent further damage

They do not have unrealistic expectations of the Doctor or their body

They understand cause and effect

They understand the consequences of abuse and neglect

They understand the importance of the Doctor’s role

They understand the importance of their role outside of the office

They think and behave in uncommon fashion, and because of this

They are rewarded with uncommon health and longevity

They live a better life!!

Action Steps

Don’t have a chiropractor? Go find one ASAP!

Haven’t been in awhile? Get your butt back in there!

Haven’t taken your kids in for a checkup? Stop procrastinating!

LaPlace’s Law of Biology

The Laws Of Biology Govern How We Age, As Well As Matters Of Health And Disease

Kinda Important To Know Something About Them, Don’t You Think?


This is perhaps the #1 reason why I still get adjusted a couple times per month – regardless of how I feel! It’s also a major motivator to keeping tabs on my posture as I age. I hope you let this info motivate you like it has motivated me. – Dr. Burns

Please SHARE with family and friends!

You think you don’t need chiropractic, you think chiropractic is only good for back pain… THINK AGAIN!

The Cliff Notes (please read)


LaPlace’s Law states that tube-like structures when stretched will decrease in circumference or close down

Tube-like structures in the human body include arteries, veins, capillaries, nerves, spinal cord, etc. (the important stuff)

Abnormal postures, abnormal spinal curves and abnormal biomechanics can create chronic tension in these tube-like structures

When stretched, the volume flowing through the tube-like structure will increase in pressure and/or flow at an irregular rate

Chronic, abnormal tension of this kind can create stagnation, degradation and degeneration throughout the body over time

Decreased blood flow, hypoxia (decreased oxygen), altered nerve metabolism, decreased nerve flow, etc. are probable under these circumstances

This condition or situation can happen without a person even being conscious or aware of it

This is often referred to as the #1 cause of accelerated aging, as well as a major underlying cause of nearly all disease


Keep the tube-like structures in your body wide open and flowing freely at all times

Fix your posture and biomechanical faults, then maintain these improvements for life

Use chiropractic for its ability to help you regulate LaPlace’s Law

Of course a good diet and a monthly massage is helpful too 🙂
