Every Day Holds the Possibility of a Miracle

I, Dr. Sarah MacArthur, live in a World where miracles don’t just happen but are expected every single day

This statement plays an integral role in my life and my journey to be where I am today. Here I am going to share with you why this word resonates so deeply with me on both a personal and professional level.

I have always had a rather positive outlook on life for as long as I can remember; it has always been something that I have thought of as a key characteristic of my personality. I also know that it is from my experiences that I am able to view the World as I do today. My mother is a walking miracle. She was diagnosed with chronic pancreatitis, a very painful condition, at the young age of 21. At the time her medical doctors did not fully understand what was wrong with …Read more

I Stand For A World Where Ego Does Not Stand In The Way Of Prosperity

I stand for a world where ego does not stand in the way of prosperity

My name is Dr Rich Baez and I stand for a world where ego does not stand in the way of prosperity.

Prosperous is an interesting word. It is a state of thriving socially, in health, and in happiness. It is something I can say with confidence we all strive for. But we don’t always achieve it, do we. So what’s standing in your way?

I’ve noticed with myself that I was letting my ego get in the way of true happiness and joy. I feel like I’ve always know this to a degree but never really had a way to overcome that limitation. Maybe you can relate..

After quite a bit of soul searching, reading, and discussing with my community I began to understand what truly matters to me. It isn’t the superficial things I was …Read more

5 Tips that I have learned to Conquer Overwhelm

Living here in Boulder, I know the stresses families go through to just be able to sustain living here by the mountains, let alone enjoy all this beautiful place has to offer. I know what it feels like to wonder where all the hours of the day are going, and below I’m going to include my 5 tips to help keep you sane and OVERCOME that overwhelmed feeling.

Growing up in a big family, I’ve seen a lot of moms that are struggling balancing work and personal life. Feel like there’s not enough time in the day for you to complete all the to-dos that are lined up? You have to take two of the kids to their sports practices, one to their voice lesson, you still have to make dinner, not to mention you’re still working during the day too? And when are you going to squeeze in a workout …Read more

Is Stress Making our Kids Sick?

Have you ever stopped and asked yourself, “Why are our children becoming more ill year after year? Why are rates of ADHD, Autism, and Depression/Anxiety rising at such an alarming rate?” If not, let me share with you what I have found, because this trend keeps me up at night.

Our Bodies are Delicate

If you are like me, you were taught from an early age that our body is virtually indestructible. Fall out of a tree? Walk it off. Mom running late from work? Order a pizza. Grandparent passes away? Go to school the next day. For simplicity, let’s call these factors stress.

Stress is all around us, every day. Some of it is BIG, and some not so much. The bottom line is stress ACCUMULATES.

What Happens When Stress is TOO High?

Our bodies are meant to be dynamic, and ever-changing. Have you ever noticed that your body temperature is relatively the same your whole …Read more

4 Ways to Stay Healthy During the Winter

We’ve all been there, you wake up and your head hurts, you’re starting to feel congested, tired, maybe your stomach doesn’t feel great. It should come as no surprise that people typically tend to get sick during the winter months more frequently than in the summer months.  When you come in contact with any kind of cold or flu it is directly dependent on the state of your immune system whether or not you express those symptoms. Here I’m going to lay out 4 very important factors that play into a persons immune system and outline the ways in which you can prevent getting that nasty cold bug during the winter.

1. Rest

It is imperative that we get enough sleep during this time of year when we are exposed to more colds and flu’s within confined spaces. When you aren’t getting enough quality sleep consistently every night it puts a lot …Read more

Have you had a concussion? #1 thing you have to do especially if you’ve played rugby

Rugby is one of the fastest growing sports in North America with a high level of participation right here in Boulder Colorado. In fact, the USA rugby headquarters is right in our backyard in Lafayette. When people hear about concussions the first sport that comes to mind is football, however, there is a high incidence of concussions amongst rugby players largely due to high collision rates with no

 helmet protection. Rugby players wear mouth-guards which offers slight shock absorption but still players are at a high risk of getting a concussion, accounting for 25% of all rugby related injuries.

One of the largest focus’ in research right now is head trauma and how it affects the brain and spinal cord. Some symptoms of a concussion include dizziness, migraines, vertigo, brain fog and mood changes. These symptoms decrease over time but all too commonly rugby players return to play before the symptoms fully …Read more

3 Hidden How-To’s for Combating Depression

Unfortunately, depression has become such a commonplace term and occurrence; even childhood favorite comics make light of the very dark situation.

In fact, it’s so common, I’m sure you can name at least two people – maybe even you or someone you know – that have gone through this state in life. Sometimes it can be short lived, and sometimes it can be dragged out for years – and much of that depends on how you handle it. Below are three simple, concrete action steps you can take to shift your mindset, and in turn, your perspective to help you fight depression.

This action step attacks depression on many fronts. It allows you to get out of …Read more

What a week in Mexico City taught me

2017 Mexico Outreach Trip

Let’s set the stage. 12 Doctors of Chiropractic and 6 students closed their doors and packed a bag and headed to Mexico City for a singular purpose…to change the landscape of health in Mexico. Doctors from London, Barcelona, El Salvador, and all across the United States came together to fulfill this promise.


My name is Dr. Rich Baez and I practice in Boulder, CO. The decision to close up shop and head to Mexico City was an easy one to make. This was the 5th trip I have embarked on in the past 4 years, spanning from India to El Salvador. These trips each hold a special place in my heart. There really is nothing like going to a different country where you do not know the language, where these patients are trying to tell you their stories, and in that moment the only thing that you can …Read more

EMS Training + Running and Cycling

Special Guest Blog from Andrea with FitTec
EMS Training + Running and Cycling

As we live in one of the most active states in the US, many of our clients are runners, cyclists and overall fitness enthusiasts. EMS training and endurance training are great compliments to each other. Chris McCormack, winner of the 2010 Ironman world championship in Kona and Usain Bolt, world record holder for sprinting, both use EMS training to help them reach their goals.


What makes EMS such a great tool for endurance athletes?
Core Stability and Strength. Core strength is the pillar that translates into speed. Developing speed is actually a force that is being transferred from your core, your power house, to your appendages (your arms and legs). If your core is not stable and strong, you will absolutely have an increased risk of injury and diminished capacity for speed. Your core also acts as a shock absorber so impact …Read more

Community Creating Community

Last week I had the opportunity to spend the weekend in San Jose, California with 70+ plus Chiropractors and service professionals from around the globe.


I have to tell you, we had an amazing time. It was great to see everyone. It had been a while since we have had the opportunity to reconnect with many of whom we consider family. In fact, the last time we saw many of them was on our last El Salvador Outreach trip in June of last year (I absolutely cannot wait to get back down there).
I can guarantee you know the feeling when you see a best friend or loved one who you haven’t seen for a while. When you see them again it’s like you were never apart. You pick up right where you left off and hit the ground running again. It is an amazing feeling. You know what I’m talking about?
I …Read more

Autism & The Brain Body Connection

According to the CDC 1 in 50 children will now be diagnosed with autism.

That is up from 1 in 10,000 in 1970s. To say there is a problem is a gross understatement.

It’s time for society, especially in Boulder Colorado, to start asking relevant questions. Like what has changed in this short amount of time to cause such an alarming rise?

This article won’t go into the various causes, but will instead look at one of the most overlooked factors affecting the quality of these children’s lives.

Life is How We Perceive It

I love the quote above because it incorporates two things I love: philosophy and science. No one would argue that our inner experience is a result of the cultural and familial “lens” we see the world through. Our beliefs and experience shape the way we see and interact in the world.

However, many people fail to contemplate how our nervous systems shape our …Read more

The Best Doctor in the World

Do I have your permission to challenge you? To say some things that may challenge what you currently believe to be true?

My name is Dr. Rich Baez and I stand for a world where your current state of health does NOT dictate your future.  . . . . your CURRENT state of health does not dictate your future. This is the foundation that I live my life by, both in and out of the office. You see, people come into my office because they are sick. They have exhausted both medical AND alternative modalities. In fact, many patients have been told that there is nothing more that can be done and they should go home and learn how to live with their diagnosis. THIS IS NOT OK….because your current state of HEALTH…does not dictate your future.

If you get to know me and hear what patients come into the office for, …Read more

Your Current State of Health Does NOT Dictate Your Future

I, Dr. Rich Baez, stand for a world where your current state of health does NOT dictate your future.

Have you ever noticed yourself looking at someone on the street or maybe a family member who’s health is not where you think it should be? What did you find yourself saying? Was it an internal conversation, or did you start a conversation? I want to share a story with you, one that speaks to the heart of this issue.


My grandfather grew up in the mountains in the state of Michoacan, Mexico. Imagine walking out your front door and seeing mango trees, papayas, and other delectable fruits right at your fingertips. Homemade tortillas from locally grown corn, fresh meat from chickens, goats, and cows. This truly was a paradise. However what ended up happening over the course of his life was over indulging in sweets, fruits, tortiallas, and alcohol. It was this over …Read more

Why I Love Working With Norwegian Patients

When someone comes into my office for the first time, I like to give them a tour.  Something that people always notice is the front page news articles of me in another language.  When they ask, “what is that and what language is that in?” I reply, “Those are the two trips I have taken to Norway to talk about the kind of care we provide in the office here.”  Then I go on to explain that there have been over 50 people who have come from Norway to Boulder to receive care at our office.  Most of the time people’s reactions are that of disbelief or amazement.  Then the next logical question…. “why would someone come half way across the world for Specific Chiropractic care.”  The answer is simple… Results.

In my experience, I have found that people will do almost anything if they believe they will get the result …Read more

Can Good Health Really Be That Simple?

Can Good Health Really Be That Simple?
Have you ever been speaking with your doctor and felt like you were hearing a foreign language? I can tell you how it feels from both sides of the table! It is frustrating hearing jibberish and it is also frustrating seeing glazed eyes while trying to explain a complicated topic, like health.

Take a moment and think back to high school biology when learning about the human body. Do you remember how complicated and confusing it all was?! Now imagine spending the next 8 years diving deeper and deeper down that rabbit hole with Neurons on this side and beta amyloid plaques over there. It gets complex!

The biggest challenge once a diagnosis has been given is explaining exactly what is happening in ENGLISH! It’s difficult to take all this information we are taught and break it apart into tangible pieces. Believe me…I get it!

So, what …Read more

My name is Dr. Rich Baez and I would like to share with you the three secrets to maximize brain health. Now, I’m sure you are very aware of the basics like a healthy diet, exercise, and meditation…but what I am going to share with you in this article are the three less commonly known facts to maximize brain health.


#1 Nourish the brain:

When it comes to supporting the brain, my main focus is fat. The reason to focus here is: “The human brain is nearly 60 percent fat. We’ve learned in recent years that fatty acids are among the most crucial molecules that determine your brain’s integrity and ability to perform.” What I am here today to do is illuminate the mystery behind the good fats, primarily Omega-3 fatty acids, AKA fish oil. Many of you have probably heard about fish oil at some …Read more
