For a long time, it was accepted that really the only thing that determined the health of our kids was their genetics. The Gene Theory basically stated that humans are “coded” for either health or various forms of illness and disease… and that there isn’t much you can do about it.
Thankfully , once that theory was actually researched and studied, it proved to not be true. We learned that our environment and lifestyle have a lot more to do with the health outcomes of our children than their genetic code, through a concept called epigenetics.
As parents, having an understanding of how this works can honestly be both exciting and scary! It’s exciting because it means that traditional medicine was way off base and for the most part, our children’s health is not just left to random chance and good or back luck. But it’s also a bit scary because it truly means we have more control and say in...
Hi PWC Family!
Some of you may have already caught what’s going on with our Facebook posts the last 24 hours, but we wanted to make sure everyone is in the know about this amazing kiddo Levi who’s healing journey has led him to PWC this week!
Levi and his twin sister, Lainey, suffered a drowning accident on November 28th of last year. His incredible family has been on a healing journey ever since. Lainey has made a full and miraculous recovery, but Levi still is struggling through a “neurostorm” challenges… which is led him to PWC, which is our specialty as many of you know.
There is so much to this incredible story, and since PWC is such a supportive, empowering, and strong community… we’d love for you to catch up, keep track, and most importantly add Levi to your prayers !
One other reason we wanted to get this message out to you via our email, blog, text, and social media is to let...
In this wildly helpful video blog, Dr. Tony maps out 5 Steps to take for your child (or for yourself) to help get better sleep !
Sleep is something Dr. Tony himself struggled with massively for the first 20 years of his life, and he shares that story here and how Step #5 was the key to him finally getting that figured out and back on track so that his focus , concentration , and regulation could get back in order as well!
Please share with someone who you know needs this video blog and help with their sleep !
This Back to School Transitions topic is something we normally talk about and support our community with in August to September time frame, but as we all know too well… the last year has been anything but normal.
And with most of our kids recently making their way back to at least some form of in-person learning (YAY!!!), we wanted to launch a ‘Series’ of helpful emails, blogs, posts, and videos over the next few weeks to help your family have as smooth of transition back to school as possible !
This first post will really lay out 3 Steps to Smoothing Back to School Transitions overall, and then each subsequent one over the next week or two will dive deeper into each of those 5 Steps!

Our kids feed off our energy and emotions like nothing else. If you think their friends and teachers are influential in their life, try being you! ;)
As parents we’ve seen an absolute “surge” of stress from the...
Earlier this week, we provided the first adjustment to a young man who for years had struggled with constant neck and shoulder pain, sinus and respiratory issues , as well as sleep and focus challenges.
After just 1 adjustment, he had way less tension in his neck, greatly improved mobility, could breathe easier, and felt his brain "kick on" again! The smile on this young man's face was truly priceless - he was just so happy to feel better instantly like that!
It took me (Dr. T) back nearly 20 years ago to my first adjustment, that immediately began to clear all the same challenges I was having at that age already... chronic neck and shoulder issues that PT, Aleve, and Tylenol couldn't touch, along with serious sleep, sensory, and focus challenges that had built up over the years. I too had a big, crazy on my face after that first adjustment as a young college kid, because I just knew it had set me on a new path to a far better life!!!...
We all know that if you add it all up, 2020 was a straight dumpster fire of stress on top of stress. We entered last year already overstressed, tense, and anxious... and then all that transpired sent a "surge" of stress on top of that.
For most of us, it hit us in pretty much all directions - work, home, family, and more. Perhaps most sad of all, it hit our kids hard too. Remote learning has been an immense struggle for so many, no matter their age. Every day is a battle, the same battle.
So, what if there was actually a way to effectively "switch off" our stress and in turn, "boost" and "activate" our mood and happiness?
For so many parents especially, this email and quick explanation of things will seem unbelievable. So many parents and people have been stuck in constant fight-or-flight mode for so long, they don't know anything else.
Last year before the covid-chaos even hit, I had a mom genuinely ask me during her...
Every year in January most of us take a fresh look and a fresh run at our health, but after the hot mess that was 2020... let's really rock it this year and get our health to the best it's ever been in 2021!
To help you with that process, our PWC Team has committed to DOUBLING the amount of helpful educational content we share with you in all forms! We're going to be sending twice the amount of helpful emails and texts, doubling our Facebook and Instagram content, starting our YouTube channel and Podcast, and also offering 2X the amount of in-person Health Workshops at PWC on Thursday nights all year long!
We got you, you got this! Your stress doesn't stand a chance in 2021 with us on your team!
To kick us off, let's start with where we all need to start, diving right into the most important aspect of our health and wellness - the Central Nervous System .
The focus of this email is the quote that is the foundation of our Perfect Storm workshop,...
The "new normal" does NOT have to be constantly being exhausted, cranky, anxious, and living with constant pain in your neck, head, and shoulders!
This Video Blog is a recording of Dr. Tony's live webinar on the topic, where he provided a 5-Step (plus some bonuses) of Action Items you can build into your weekly routine that help you "outpoint" the stress that consumes and takes down more parents today!
Get AHEAD of your stress finally, and not only will your life be dramatically more enjoyable and joyful... but your kids will then learn it's possible for them too!
This is a must read if you feel like your kiddo is constantly sick and you don't know why. If you're ready to see your child thrive, this story is for you!
"There is a saying in life that goes “one day we’ll look back at this and smile” and that very much applies to the story I’m about to tell you.
In 2015 at the tender age of 3, my oldest son, Colton, was diagnosed with “RSV” or restrictive airway disease. This diagnosis came after two long years of chronic sinus infections, coughs (which lasted months at a time) and restricted breathing, which, at it’s worst, landed us in the intensive care unit at a major hospital whose staff stood by - ready to perform an emergency throat trach as my son lie there, gasping for oxygen.
These are times that as a Mom are incredibly hard to relive. Even as I write the words of my story, the rush of fear, uncertainty and helplessness that I felt then come rushing back like taunting...
