Is Chiropractic Safe and How to Detox Safely with Dr. Hardick

I’m here today with a holistic living expert I really admire. Dr. B. J. Hardick is known far and wide for his passion for teaching others how to design a lifestyle that supports the body’s natural ability to heal. He’s a master recipe creator and his book Maximized Living Nutrition Plans is used by over 500 chiropractic health clinics around the globe as a basis for nutritional counseling.

Healing the Body With Chiropractic Care

In addition to his chiropractic practice in London, Ontario, Dr. Hardick regularly contributes recipes and articles to sites like FoodMatters.com, MindBodyGreen.com, and the Huffington Post, not to mention his own blog at DrHardick.com with tons of quality info on whole food nutrition, his guided 7-day detox, best supplements to take, and more. Be sure to check out his links in the resources below!

Today he explains what chiropractic can do for the body, whether it’s safe for kids, and practical life changes that can help anyone detox and regain a natural state of balance.

Let’s dive in!

Dr. B. J. Hardick on How Parents Can Make a Difference

What makes Dr. Hardick stand out from the pack is his positive, upbeat, and balanced approach to making healthy choices in a toxic world. Even in the face of challenges, it’s not all doom and gloom. One thing I especially love to hear as a mom — Dr. B. J. credits his parents for instilling his outlook on health, even in the face of challenges. He explains:

My parents always had … this underlying philosophy that really we were created to be healthy. Even in the early days before there was a lot of education or a lot of access to information they really aligned with the philosophy that the body was supposed to work properly provided we don’t mess it up.

I only hope I can do the same for my kids!

Humans have been benefiting from bees and their nourishing superfoods since prehistoric times, from Cleopatra using honey to keep her youthful glow to Hippocrates prescribing propolis to cure everything from sores to bacterial infection. Beekeepers Naturals is dedicated to bringing the age-old benefits of bee products to modern times. They offer really high quality propolis, royal jelly, bee pollen, raw honey, and many other products. And all of these are sustainably sourced from a company that is dedicated to protecting and improving the bee population. My personal favorites are their propolis spray, which helped me head off a scratchy throat, and their B.LXR mix which is a mixture of all their bee products as a natural brain boost I use to stay sharp on busy days.

  1. I can’t get to this episode.

  2. I also could only listen to the podcast if I clicked the download link.. there’s something wrong with the audio player on this page!
    Thanks for the episode, it was good!

    • Hi Katie,

      So sorry about that. Everything is working fine on my end. Would you mind to make sure your browser is up to date?

      • Hi Katie – No worries, like I said, I was still able to listen to it if I went to the Download link and listened to it there. It was odd. I just tried it again today in the same browser, and it worked fine! Hope it was just a glitch on my end 🙂

  3. My podcast player is showing the file to be 0Mb. I just refreshed the episode from the RSS. Same result.

  4. I cannot listen to the podcast as well. I listen on my iPhone and it always says the podcast is unavailable. Same for my friend.

  5. Hi there Katie. This isn’t working for me here on the website or on my podcast end.

  6. First of all, I love this podcast and I think it does a good job of purposely not shaming “mamas” for not being perfect. I take issue with the comment that Dr. Hardwick made about his mother potentially doing something “wrong” with her lifestyle to cause a C-section. I’ve seen heroin addicts give birth to healthy babies and friends who are super fit and healthy have C-sections … let’s stick to what we can control. Hoping he gets to that as the interview continues. Even then, healthy people still get sick …
