Various notes and posts from Dr Chet and Trudy

Canadian Mountain Bike Champion happy with his results!


Dr. Chet treated me last November at a Mountain Bike Race in East Timor. I had just dislocated my shoulder for the 4th time and the motion was very limited and it was unstable when riding. Within two treatments my shoulder had better range of motion than it has had in 6 years, and it felt very secure. Since then it has remained stable and has allowed me to keep bike racing around the World without problems. Dr.Chet is one of the most down to earth and approachable guys you will ever meet. He listens, and is very optimistic as he works his magic. He not only heals your body, but also any doubts you may have in your mind about the physical condition. By far the best treatment I have had in 8 years as a Pro mountain biker.

Sweet Kuwait

Bird houses for the migrating birds from across the world

Keeping the harvest from the birds

Wonderful dates in Kuwait

At a Date farm on the Saudi Border of Kuwait, the birds are loved. The owner has built large birdhouses to protect the migrating flights, and let them rest for their continued journeys. ย The birds are welcomed with water and food from the date plantation.

Most of the date harvest is protected with cloth bags to prevent damage, but enough are left open to provide food and energy for the birds as they make their yearly migrations.

Touching Base With Family And Friends

Trudy and I took a break from our work schedule and recently took a two month holiday through France, Germany, and the West Coast of the USA, meeting up with friends and family all along the way. We are now recharged and ready to get back out into the the world and help you feel better, inside and out!

History In Music

The sun was momentarily peaking through the rain clouds upon our arrival to Amsterdam. On our last train connection toward the central station we met a gentleman from Germany on his way to care for his son. At some point in the conversation he described a trip he had made with his wife to Leningrad, years before, to visit the resting place of his father. His father had died in the Battle of Leningrad during WWII just prior to his birth. He described the joy of seeing his own children grow and mature and wished his father could have felt and seen the same. The emotions and images he described were intense, but the overpowering sense of love for his children seemed to leave us feeling a sense of joy at the end of the conversation that was unexpected. Darkness truly can be the canvas from which we can paint a picture of life’s brightness and light.

Ineke and Trudy at the Amsterdam Concert Hall

The next evening at dinner, we met a woman named Ineke. She was dining next to us and we found she was on her way to the symphony. She had a background in Music History and had an ongoing love for music since childhood. She was very excited about the evening performance and gave us a detailed description of the upcoming concert. It turned out that the main piece to be played by the Koninklijk Concertgebouworkest (Royal Dutch Concert Symphony) was written in 1943. The Russian composer Dmitri Sjostakavitsj had written the music to enable the listener to feel and understand the emotions of battle, The Battle of Leningrad. Needless to say, we bought tickets and enjoyed a unique experience that tied the lives of complete strangers together with common understanding. Ineke’s description of the evenings movements, combined with our conversation on the train, allowed us to hear and feel a piece of history, via music, that touched our hearts.


Provence-Alpes-Cote d’Azur

Fresh For Your Kitchen

It may be cheaper to drink the wine while in Valbonne, than to eat the grapes directly! At the height of tourist season the merchants are willing to see what the market will bear, and the tourists seem to be very willing to spend.




Gorge du Verdon

We spent a few days enjoying the summer sun and then, on one cool and rainy day, found our way to the Gorge du Verdon.ย A great hike down to the cold, blue-green water got our blood pumping.

This was the first time in the recent past that I have been able to actually feel cold while swimming. The tropics just have no cold water! We swam in the river until shivering, getting ready for the warm hike back to the top.
