Believe in Yourself

Believe in yourself, embrace those around you and never stop growing!

This week’s Article of the Week is written by Deb

If you have been around me long enough, you have probably heard me mention my brother-in-law Paul, who is currently in university. It’s worth repeating for those who haven’t heard. They are truly an inspiration to me.

My sister Kate married a Texan and they have lived in Texas and more recently Oklahoma in a beautiful house, went to an amazing church and were surrounded by very good friends. At the age of 52, Paul decided he wanted to go back to school and study to be a physician’s assistant. He had worked in similar fields when he was younger as he had been a paramedic on an air ambulance and spent some time working at the fire department. Kate fully supported his decision as he applied to various universities. He was accepted to a university in Arkansas. I remember Kate saying here they were in their 50’s, they were selling their house and moving on campus to a 1 bedroom apartment …she hoped she could cope with campus living!

Before school started, Paul finished off a project he had been working on for some time. He had interviewed 100 people over the age of 100 to get their perspective on life. Many said their faith and continually learning new things helped them stay sharp. He sent it off to print – his book was done.

Paul was a success at school. The younger students sought him out for advise and to calm them down when they were about to crack from the pressure. His calm demeanor kept them focused and a little less stressed. They helped him with technology. He was called upon in class to share life experiences he had while working in the field. Kate also embraced her new life. She would often put together a hot breakfast and deliver it to their early study groups or have them over for dinner. University living was fulfilling and they embraced all those that were around them.

A few months ago a young student asked Paul if he would marry her and her fiancé during school break. He had been there for her and she really wanted him to officiate at her wedding. Paul met with the young couple and really liked who they were together. He took an online course and Paul married them a few weeks ago.

They have since moved to Little Rock, Arkansas where Paul is completing his 2nd year doing rounds at the local hospital. We’re all looking forward to hearing how the next leg of the journey goes. I am so proud of them both!

The investment that he, and his supportive team of Deb and Sue, make towards your long term care plan is by far the most thorough and well thought out that I have ever experienced.

I can also attribute a successful and remarkable quick recovery from 2 Total Knee Replacement surgeries to having good chiropractic care supporting good health healing! Dr. Neil is not only a caring friendly professional, he is also highly experienced and I wish to recommend him to anyone that needs a boost to daily health.

  • 5 star rating  I have been a proud client of Dr. Neil and the support team since 2016 and wouldn't think of going anywhere else. I tried other chiropracters previously and the experience at Ancaster Family Chiropractic is far superior than any other. The atmosphere is positive, friendly and professional. The set up is great and the organization/structure just makes sense. I love having a key fob...makes me feel important! They actually teach about chiropractic care for a greater understanding of same. The name is fitting as you feel like part of the family. Thanks for everything you do.

  • 5 star rating  I promised a haiku to show my appreciation, so here it is!

    Dr. Neil is great

    I have never felt better

    Go see him today

    In all honesty, Dr. Neil has been a huge help getting rid of my headaches and chronic sickness - issues that no medication in the world could help. He’s a class act and treats his clients like a true professional. If you’re dealing with any sort of health issues, I would recommend booking an appointment with him.

    Thank you Dr. Neil and your team (Deb & Sue are fantastic!) for your commitment to my health and your welcoming environment. I look forward to my appointments!
