A blog worth visiting time and time again....
I met freelance writer Jen Miller when she took the inaugural Build Book Buzz Book Marketing 101 e-course several years ago. At the time, she had just authored a regional travel guide to the Jersey shore. Today, she's coming off the successful launch of her memoir, Running: A Love Story: 10 Years, 5 Marathons, and 1 Life-Changing Sport from Seal Press (March 2016 publication date). I've been following Jen's book marketing activities through...

The technique and philosophy Dr. Weiner has is like none other. From the moment I met Dr. Weiner several years ago at the RCC Home Show I was immediately impressed by his no pressure approach. Having been a chiropractor patient with several other doctors at varies times since 1990 I knew what to expect from chiropractor care. What I didn’t expect and was pleasantly surprised with was the long term affects his adjustments geared specifically to my lack of the “arc of life” have done for my life style. I no longer pop 6-8 Advil’s a day and I’m convinced Advil’s stock has dropped because of it. It is a true pleasure waking each morning with no headache and no aches and pains I convinced myself I had to live with. My migraines are now basically non-existent and I can turn my neck from left to right and forward and back with ease; something I could not do prior to becoming a patient of Dr. Weiner’s. If there is any doubt in your mind chiropractor care won’t help you in anyway, think again. The body’s natural ability to heal itself is proven through having the correct adjustment to your spine and neck. The relief of pressure and correct alignment of the spine and neck is essential to the rest of your body working correctly.
