I hound my dad at every opportunity to eat less, put down the salt shaker, cut out the butter, consume less alcohol, start an exercise routine, and the list goes on and on. Frankly, the man doesn’t take the best care of himself…and selfishly, I wish he did. He has a gym membership and a daughter that’s a dietitian. I review his labs, make suggestions, and yet…nothing ever changes.
Unfortunately, my dad has this non-healing wound on his leg. Wanting to take the “non-Western” route, he has been seeing a chiropractor for the past many, many weeks receiving infrared treatments. I haven’t done any research myself, but based on conversations with my mom, it all sounds very experimental. As it would end up, my dad’s wound is still not healed.
