Preserve Your Herbs After snipping or pulling your herbs and giving them a light wash, remove lower leaves from the stems and tie the bunch of herbs together close to the top of the stems. Ideally, a bunch should contain no more than 5 10 stems to facilitate ventilation.

Find a dry, warm (not humid), dark and well ventilated place that is out of the way of pedestrian traffic or constant rummaging. The ideal temperature for drying is around 68ºF/20ºC. If you do not have a dark spot in the house, you can try tying paper lunch bags over each bunch and piercing airholes in the bag. This has the added bonus of also keeping the dust off. Leave the herbs to dry for 1 - 3 weeks. Check them every now and then to see how they are drying - thicker stemmed herbs will take longer. When they crumble they are ready to be taken down. Remove the leaves and bottle them in airtight glass herb jars (or other jars you have around). You can keep the leaves whole, or crush them in your fingers. Label the jar and date it. Store the herbs for up to one year.

FALL 2013

To illuminate a carved pumpkin, string lights are preferable to candles for most designs: Wrap a strand of 20 lights around a glass jar, and secure wires with tape. Cut a hole in the hollowed-out pumpkin for the cord, and place jar inside. Unplug lights before leaving the house or going to sleep. If using a candle, place it in a glass or votive holder, and cut a hole in the back of the pumpkin for ventilation (or leave the top off ). Battery-operated candles are another good alternative.

November Folklore November take flail; let ships no more sail. If trees show buds in November, the Winter will last until May. There is no better month in the year to cut wood than November. Ice in November brings mud in December.

Ingredients: •Jalepeños •Quail breasts •Cream cheese Method: Skin birds, then remove legs at hip joints and filet away breast meat. Soak the meat in lightly-salted water for about thirty minutes. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Split jalapeño peppers in half, figuring one pepper for every two pieces of meat. Remove seeds and core from the inside of each pepper. Press cream cheese into cavity of each pepper and lay a strip of meat over the cheese; fasten with a toothpick. Lay poppers on a cookie sheet or baking dish, meat side up, and place into preheated oven. Bake approximately 20 minutes, or until the bottoms of the peppers turn brown. Serve with plenty of cold beer! For more visit

Are you exploring Loveland? Share what you discover!

#LivinginLoveland AM CAFF FEINE E

8:00 AM


10:00 AM After our fill of coffee, breakfast, and people watching we hop in the car and drive to the Promenade Shops at Centerra for some retail therapy. The outdoor mall on Centerra Parkway provides a wide variety of stores and a beautiful view of some of the open spaces surrounding Loveland. We also checked the Promenade Shop’s website before leaving The Coffee Tree to plan out which stores we need to stop at and check for any deals of the day. With our plan of action and a list of neccesities we are ready to shop! After stowing away our many packages of deals, we take a stroll through the Chapungu Sculpture Park behind the shops of Centerra. The trail winds through a collection of Zimbbabwe stone sculptures tucked within 20 acres of open space. The crisp fall air and the beautiful surroundings leave us refreshed and inspired.

It’s another beautiful day in Loveland, but as fall settles in so does the chill in the air. That chill has us craving a steaming cup of coffee and a warm breakfast! We start our day at The Coffee Tree in Historic Downtown Loveland at 210 East 4th Street. The atmosphere is inviting and the tables are usually filled with chatting friends, regulars stopping before work and the usual coffee connoisseurs. Our drink of choice is the velveteen rabbit latte, which combines caramel and white chocolate flavors. For breakfast we order a panini with eggs, ham, and pepper jack cheese warmed to perfection over a whole wheat English muffin. Once our order is ready we sit near the front windows to watch the street come to life with the gradual opening of each store and the lively congregation of people walking along the sidewalks of the downtown area. 7

SUMMER 2013 /


12:00 PM When we get back in the car it’s time to drive to one of our favorite stops. Our morning of shopping has worked up our appetite and lunch at Nordy’s Bar-B-Que & Grill is exactly what we need. This family owned and operated restaurant has perfected their own line of original sauces to compliment their BBQ creations. We recommend Nordy’s BBQ ribs, which are hickory smoked for up to 5 hours to make sure the meat is falling off the bone when it reaches your table. If you stop by during the week between 11:00 A.M. and 2:00 P.M. and can’t decide on one dish, we recommend ordering the buffet to try a little of everything

FALL 2013


2:00 PM After seeing the unique sculptures at Chapungu Scuplture Park, we are inspired to take our own walking tour of the local sculptures displayed around Loveland. Art has been well respected and given the spotlight on many occasions in Loveland. Every year Loveland hosts the largest juried outdoor sculpture show in the nation, Sculpture in the Park. A strong artistic influence has helped to procure over 300 public works of art and over 200 bronze sculptures for the community. The Benson Scuplture Garden, located at 1125 West 29th Street, provides a single outdoor setting for everyone to enjoy the beauty and craftsmanship of a large collection of sculptures while walking alongside Loveland’s stunning landscape. This is also where the Sculpture in the Park show is held each summer.



5:00 PM After our tour of Benson Sculpture Garden we make a quick trip home to drop off our packages from shopping and freshen up for dinner with friends at Next Door Food and Drink. The restaurant’s name is very fitting as it is located right next door to our final stop for the night at the Rialto Theater. Next Door offers tapas, lunch, entrees, happy hour and a late night menu which only proves that its always a good time to go Next Door.


7:00 PM Our eventful day comes to an end at the Rialto Theater where we take in one of the musical performances. The timeless building and art deco backdrop only add to the wonderful experience. The Rialto Theater offers music, theater, film and community events with both national and local performers in the 446 seat theater. When the Rialto opened in 1920 it was a silent movie theater and to honor that tradition the Rialto shows silent films accompanied by a live orchestra twice a year. On October 31, the Rialto will be showing Alfred Hitchcock’s silent film The Lodger. Be sure to get your tickets early for the classic performances such as The Fiddler on the Roof and The Nutcracker, which are sure to sell out quickly.

Planning Your Fall





“Get Back To Nature”

STAYCATION If you have vacation days that need to be used up, weekdays in the fall are a great time to visit the Denver Museum of Nature and Science. Even if you have been before the ever changing exhibitions will provide something new to educate and wow you and your family. This fall “Mythbusters: The Explosive Exhibition” will open and provide a unique, fun and even hands on look into the experiments and demonstrations from the hit TV show.

Keep the nature theme of your staycation going and head to the Denver Botanic Gardens. With plants from all over the world, you are sure to see something you have never seen before. The best Mother Nature has to offer is here and visits always induce a sense of calm and sheer awe of our remarkable ecosystem.

Now that you have seen nature from across the world and through history, it is time to enjoy what we have in our own backyard. Everyone from Colorado knows that the fall foliage here is absolutely breathtaking and many of us take it for granted. Plan a day trip drive to one of our great national parks and soak in the beauty of Colorado in the fall. One of our favorite parks is the newly opened Staunton State Park near Conifer. This 3,800 acre park provides beautiful scenery and great hiking trails and is a great addition to our already wonderful Colorado parks portfolio.

“Sports Lover”

STAYCATION As all sports fans know, fall is the greatest time of the year for edge of your seat game action. Broncos, Buffs and Rams football, baseball playoffs, Rapids soccer; the choices are sometimes overwhelming. Instead of channel surfing, plan a staycation of visiting sports venues. Whether you are a Buffs fan or a Rams fan, a firsthand college game day experience cannot be topped. The passion of students and fans is un-paralleled and the atmosphere is always electric. Whether it’s Folsom Field in Boulder or Hughes Stadium in Fort Collins, catching a game is perfect way to spend a Saturday afternoon. If you are lucky enough to score tickets to a Broncos game, make a day out of it. Denver is known as one of the best tailgating cities in the country and a good tailgate party outside of Sports Authority Field at Mile High is the perfect way to kickoff Broncos gameday.

MANY OF US TAKE OUR GREAT STATE FOR GRANTED. People come from all over the world to visit our museums, national parks, shopping, restaurants, and sporting events. We have endless amounts of entertainment at our fingertips and a growing economy means we will keep adding to that list. Staycations may lack the glamour of going to an exotic locale, but it just may be the best, most affordable and memorable vacation your family has been on.

October 19th is the Colorado Rapids last regular season home game at Dick’s Sporting Goods Park and whether or not you are a soccer fan this is a sporting event that you must experience in person. The Rapids are in the middle of another excellent winning season, so the crowds are loud and the games are pulsepounding.

HALLOWEEN SAFETY Halloween can be a fun and scary time for all ages. Perhaps the scariest part of Halloween is that it can be quite dangerous for children that are not properly prepared or joined by an adult. by Kimba ORR


ccording to a Halloween safety study by Safe Kids Worldwide, twice as many child pedestrians are killed while walking on Halloween than any other day of the year. While we would not want to deprive any anxious trick-or-treaters of their special night we do suggest taking proper precautions. Each year we try to top our last costume creation but it is important to remember that safety must always come first! When picking out a costume make sure it fits properly and doesn’t hinder movement. If a costume is too long it may cause trick-or-treaters to fall down or stumble, which is especially dangerous when crossing the street We suggest using non-toxic face paint instead of wearing a mask to ensure that your child will be able to see their surrounding clearly. If you choose to go with a mask be sure it fits properly and is easy to see out of. Another way to ensure your Halloween is a safe one is to make sure trick-or-treaters can be easily seen by motorists. Try adding in some reflective tape to the costume, shoes, or candy bag of your little monster. Give your goblins a creepy glow by sending them out with a glowstick. They can be carried or worn as a necklace, but remind kids not to break them open or chew on the glowsticks because the liquid can be hazardous. A lightweight flashlight is also a good idea; just add fresh batteries and they are ready to go! Feed your child a snack or a light meal before leaving on their Halloween adventure to reduce the tempation of sampling every piece of candy right away. Adults should always

check all treats first to make sure they have not been tampered with and are safe to eat. Any candy without a wrapper should be thrown away along with any candy that has wrappers that appear old, torn or faded. Homemade gifts are nice but if you don’t know the person giving these special treats it is best to be cautious before consuming! The popular hours to trick-or-treat are from 5:30 to 9:30 p.m. Go with your child if he or she is under the age of 12. If you aren’t able to go make sure there is a responsible adult with them. If they are over the age of 12 and want to go with friends, encourage them to stay in a group. Be sure to remind trick-or-treaters of all ages to follow a few safety rules before starting their night. These rules include, going to the intersection to cross the street, obeying all traffic signals, and staying on the sidewalks whenever possible. Remember to NEVER dart between parked vehicles or into the street without checking for traffic. There are several things for motorists to consider as well on Halloween. When driving, enter and exit driveways and alleys slowly and with caution. Watch for pedestrians in residential neighborhoods and be sure to turn on your headlights early. If you are driving with a costume on the same rules apply! Be sure you can see clearly and your movements are not restricted. This may seem like a lot of things to remember but by putting safety first we can make it a very happy Halloween for everyone!

Some of Carrie’s most recent work includes a collection of goddess inspired painting commissioned by a local beauty salon and an outdoor sign for Morrison’ Rock N’ Roses boutique. When driving by the Morrison Holiday Bar two of Carrie’s original paintings can be seen on the windows above the main level awning. Carrie will also design a one-of-a-kind tattoo for you, and enjoys drawing women and nudes. Landscapes, portraits, and henna inspired art are also ‘on her palette’, as she says. She creates artisan jewelry, one- of- a -kind handbags and personal accessories, and also likes to rework vintage clothing. Contact her @ or find her on LinkedIn: Carrie.E.Shipley

only five. Carrie’s dad brought her home from kindergarten, but he had to run an errand and when Carrie’s mom came home Carrie had painted the entire sliding glass door, proudly displaying her art work. Carrie was quick to show her mom that it would wipe right off! From

that day on, her mom would let her paint the door so everyone could see from the inside and out just how talented young Carrie was. After graduating high school, Carrie left her longtime home in Southern Indiana to continue


pursuing her passion for art at the Maryland Institute College of Art (MICA) in Baltimore, Maryland, where she majored in Fibers. She continued her education at the Rocky Mountain College of Art and Design (RMCAD) in Denver, Colorado majoring in Illustration and Art

Education. Carrie moved to Morrison and accepted a job in Lakewood at a Jeffco school teaching Jr. High art. Carrie says, “The children were wonderful to work with, helping them discover their hidden talents was very rewarding.”

For the past year Carrie has filled her time as a freelance artist, providing mixed media art in the Denver metropolitan area. She has continued to thrive through her art and the popularity of her work has spread quickly by mere word of mouth. When given the choice, Carrie prefers

to work with ink and watercolor, even though she feels that watercolor is sometimes overlooked. While at art school, oil and acrylic classes were readily available but watercolor classes were harder to find. The technique can be difficult but she feels it should be appreciated in the same way. Carrie uses her love of watercolers in staining archival rag paper and canvases,

which creates depth in the backgrounds of her work. Carrie has recently been given a very exciting opportunity to once again showcase her talents. She has been asked by the Robin B. Gallery in Chicago to be one of thirty artists to showcase their work at their ‘Grand Opening’. The “Celebrate Chicago!” exhibit opens Thursday, October

3rd at 6pm, and will feature works of each artist represented by Robin B. It will give the community a oneon-one opportunity to personally meet the artists behind the creative expressions of what Chicago means to them. Carrie’s personal showing will be at the museum in May, 2014 where she will be in attendance to meet collectors and discuss her art. BY KIMBA ORR

The time for piling on clothes has arrived and, with that, the dreaded fear of looking like an urban Eskimo. But staying warm doesn’t have to equal feeling unwieldy. Bundle up in style with sleek separates and laid-back accessories. Pile On Thin Layers Several layers of body-conscious knits, plus a neck-warming scarf, can be as cozy as your favorite chunky fisherman sweater. A waist-cinching belt finishes off the slenderizing look. Trade Your Coat For A Cape Give yourself a break from your everyday winter coat and trust a chic wrap-around to keep the cold air out. Balance With Sophisticated Accessories Gorgeous black boots are a winter style must-have — period. Wear your heaviest of sweaters, and scarf, and hat, but tuck your pants into sleek boots — even Elle Macpherson’s fringe feels sophisticated — and your heavier top-half will immediately be balanced out.


Right: Velvet by Graham and Spencer Ponte Tindall skirt in Charcoal, $84.00, Left, clockwise: AG Jeans The Coated Biker Jacket in Black Slick, $295.00,; Butter London Nail Lacquer in Thames, $15.00,; Rachel Zoe Silk Jane Blouse in Black/White, $400.00,; Frye Carson Heel Oxford in Camel, $198.00,

1. Ponte Whether it is a classic pencil skirt, a slim fitting little black dress or a pair of skinny black pants Ponte is fall’s “it” fabric and is showing up everywhere. Typically made from a soft, stretchy blend of nylon, rayon and spandex this sturdy stretch knit fabric works like a charm to lift, shape and smooth. As a bonus it is incredibly durable and easy to care for making any ponte piece a must-have for the season! 2. Black and White This fall, bold geometric prints in stark black and white are right on trend. Invest in printed separates that can easily be mixed and matched with classic closet staples. Pair a pretty chevron striped blouse with dark denim or match a boldly striped maxi skirt with a denim shirt and leather boots for a fun, casual day look.

SEASONAL WEAR: FALL TRENDS BY ALLISON PATRICK; DRAGONFLY BOUTIQUE With temperatures starting to cool and the leaves starting to turn new trends are beginning to emerge for the coming fall fashion season. While we all have our favorite pieces that we go to year after year we are also always looking for the next best thing to add to our wardrobe. Here we countdown the five biggest trends of the season that will not only have you looking stylish but will also be versatile enough to pack away for next season along with the rest of your fall favorites:

3. Coated Denim and Faux Leather Details From coated denim pants and jackets to faux leather trimmed tees and tanks this season you can get the luxe look of leather without the staggering price tag. A coated denim moto-jacket combines two of the season’s hottest trends and makes it to the top of our must-have list! 4. Oxfords and Brogues These classic menswear shoe styles are getting a seriously feminine makeover for fall. From classic lace-up oxfords setting atop a stacked heel to funky metallic wing-tips on brightly colored soles, one of fall’s biggest shoe trends is taking a note from the boys. This trend is easily dressed down with denim and a chic button-up or dressed up with patterned tights, a pencil skirt and a silky blouse. *We love the Frye Carson Oxford Heel in Camel

5. Emerald Green Whether you’re investing in a pair of stunning emerald green earrings or a silky green blouse make sure to pick up at least one statement piece highlighting this season’s biggest color trend. Go bold with an emerald green leather bag or make a smaller statement with shimmering green nail polish. *Try Butter London Nail Lacquer in Thames

FALL 2013


Cool Weather Wear & Care Your favorite fall staples will look better and last longer when you take time to care for the garments & accessories seperately.

KNITS & SWEATERS Remember that delicate knits and sweaters are best left folded. Many knits can “grow” or stretch on the hanger so designate a spot in your dresser for items that need to be folded. When dressing for the season make sure to save your jewelry for last. Knits are easily snagged by even the most delicate of chains so take extra caution to ensure that your best baubles don’t snag your favorite cardigan. Finally, invest in a pill remover. This handy little tool removes pesky sweater pills in one simple swipe and will bring new life to even the oldest of sweaters. DARK DENIM Always wash your dark denim inside out, in cold water and with like colors. Darker denims are heavily saturated with dye so with a new pair you want to wash at least once before wearing to avoid the dye transferring to lighter colored fabrics. With all denim it is best not to dry them in the dryer – heat not only breaks down the stretch but also weakens the cotton fibers (in short, it will reduce the life of your favorite pair of jeans) but especially in the case of dark denim avoid the dryer to preserve their rich, dark color.


SCARVES Most days scarves are a quick, finishing touch to an outfit that we simply wear from point A to B and, therefore, do not need to be laundered daily. I recommend picking up an at-home dry cleaning bag to toss your scarves into when they need a little freshening up. Many scarves are made from delicate, dry-clean only fabrics and this is an easy and aordable method to keep your scarves looking fabulous all season long. LEATHER BOOTS & SHOES Visit your local shoe store and stock up on weather-treatment spray for your leather boots and shoes. We recommend Nikwax Fabric and Leather spray that waterproofs any shoe in seconds. Many specialty stores also carry similar sprays that can be used on rubber boots as well as boot deodorizing sprays that will keep your favorite pairs smelling like new. FALL 2013

TRENDS FOR MEN: STRAIGHT FROM THE RUNWAY COZY AND STYLISH CAN GO TOGETHER ADD IN A FEW OF THESE TIPS AND LOOK SHARP ALL SEASON LONG STATEMENT SCARVES As big as a blanket or twisted up and knotted tight, a bold neckwear choice can make or break an ensemble. CAMO From traditional bright green and olive tones to deconstructed interpretations of the print, camo has officially traveled from the runway to the streets. PLAID The on-again, off-again love affiar with plaid is in full swing - try it in everything from hats, bags and ties to socks, scarves and jackets. BURGUNDY A trend that was all over the runways and embraced in subtle ways like shoes and accessories, as well as statement-making pieces like coats.




1. WEAR RUNNING SHOES - they provide additional grip and foot security. 2. REMEMBER WATER! Or use a hydration belt. 3. TAKE A RUNNING LIGHT - don’t be caught on a trail when it gets dark. 4. TAKE A WINDBREAKER - the temperature can change quickly on the trails. 2. CARRY YOUR CELL PHONE - for those “just in case” moments.

ave you been looking for a way to change up your current training routine? Try using one of the great assets Colorado provides by incorporating trail running into your training routine and break up the monotony of always training on a gym track, treadmill, or pavement. Trails are a great place to run or hike and have several distinct advantages compared to running on the pavement. Some of the obvious benefits include the great scenic views and a break from the daily grind in the city. The first major benefit of trail running is that trails offer natural impact absorption which means you are not putting as much force on your body when you are running compared to pavement which does not offer any impact absorption. When you are running every time your foot lands you are placing about 3 times the force of your body weight on your heels. This can quickly add up to a lot of excess force on your body and build into an overuse injury, soft tissue injury, or possibly a fracture. The second major benefit of trail running is the improved air quality. When you are on the trails you will have a break from the pollution produced by cars which most likely surround you if you are running in the city. The amount of air contaminants are generally less along the trails and this can make it easier for you to breath. These are just a couple of the great benefits you can experience if you transition to include trail running in your exercise routine. You will more than likely fall in love with trail running if you do it regularly, and that’s ok. There are great options for continuing your training with trail running clubs or even trail races. If you do enjoy the trails and decide you want to compete at a trail race the XTERRA Colorado trail run series is a great place to start. This series includes a 5k, half marathon, and full marathon, which will accommodate all levels of runners. The XTERRA Colorado trail run series has four races in the 2013-2014 seasons. Make sure you consult your health care provider if you have never ran, or you are looking to begin a training routine to make sure you’re healthy and ready to take on the majestic Colorado trails. 39

Pile 2 Tbsp. of filling into the center of each; pull up the sides and pinch together to create a nice secure package. 4 Grease a cookie sheet and bake the kolaches until golden brown, about 15 minutes. Brush the tops with melted butter and either enjoy immediately or let cool and wrap in foil for tomorrow’s breakfast-to-go. Remember to remove the foil before microwaving!

HISTORY OF CHIROPRACTIC During his time as a magnetic healer, DD Palmer started to theorize that the nervous system was the primary internal factor that alters a person’s health, and with this thinking, the study and practice of chirpractic was born. by DR. ROBERT SINDORF, DC


aniel David Palmer, better known as DD Palmer started chiropractic in 1895. DD Palmer had always been interested in the human body and practiced magnetic healing in Davenport, Iowa. During his time as a magnetic healer DD Palmer started to theorize that the nervous system was the primary internal factor that alters a person’s health. The first spinal manipulation was performed on September 18th, 1895. At DD Palmers store the janitor, whose name was Harvey Lillard, was deaf and had been deaf for 17 years. DD palmer found out that Harvey Lillard had a large lump in his back and this lump occurred around the time he was lifting something heavy which then resulted in Harvey instantly losing his hearing. Now was the time for DD Palmer to test his theory that a malpositioned vertebra could affect the spinal nerves and in this case alter Harvey Lillards ability to hear. DD Palmer used his hands to reposition the vertebra and Harvey Lillard shortly afterwards regained his hearing. After treating Harvey Lillard, DD Palmer was even more convinced the spinal nerves control the body and that repositioning a vertebra could take pressure off the nerves and allow the body to function the way that it was designed too. Another patient of DD Palmer, Rev. Samuel Weed, named chiropractic by combining two greek words. Cheiro which means hand, and praktikos which means practical or do; when these two words were put together it formed the word chiropractic which means “done by hand”.

Within one year of helping Harvey Lillard, DD Palmer opened up his first school. With the help of Solon M. Langworthy they brought Chiropractic into a science and a discipline. DD palmer later sold his school to his son BJ Palmer and the school flourished. In the 1920’s his college had an enrollment in the excess of 1,000 students. Currently Doctors of Chiropractic undergo a rigorous and challenging post graduate education. After completing a bachelor’s degree, Doctors of Chiropractic then attend a 4 year graduate program at an accredited chiropractic college. This education requires a minimum of 4,200 classroom hours and approximately 555 hours of adjustive technique courses. They must also pass 4 sets of national board examinations and a physiotherapy national board exam. Just like all medical fields doctors of chiropractic have many specialties and multiple post doctorate areas of study. Doctors of Chiropractic can get post doctorate certifications in veterinary chiropractic, rehabilitation, sports physician, spinal trauma, and sport science. Doctors of Chiropractic can further go into Diplomat programs which require an additional 3 years of course work before they are board certified in: acupuncture, clinical nutrition, radiology, neurology, diagnosis and internal disorders, orthopedics, rehabilitation, sports physicians, family practice, and pediatrics. With so many specialties in chiropractic it is important to know what specialty you are looking for and how the doctor may benefit you best.

about the author: These articles were written exclusively for the Living In... magazine publisher by Dr. Robert Sindorf who practices in the Kansas City area. Dr. Sindorf clients include a professional baseball team, multiple professional athletes, USATF National Champions, and multiple amateur athletic clubs. Dr. Sindorf has a Doctorate of Chiropractic from Cleveland Chiropractic College, a Masters of Science Degree in Anatomy and Physiology Instruction from New York Chiropractic College and a Bachelors of Science Degree in Kinesiology from Kansas State University.


5 things to consider when looking for a new doctor of Chiropractic:

about a doctor and their clinic by using the Internet. Make sure you look up their website and find out what kind of experiences others have had at their clinic. I always advise people to look for a testimonials page because this will give insight to what conditions are commonly treated at their clinic. These conditions can range from spinal complaints, TMJ, headaches, nerve entrapments, athletic injuries, pregnancy, dietary problems, or musculoskeletal pain.

1. Know the doctor’s specialty and what you need:

4. Feel comfortable with the staff:

Just like all health fields doctors of chiropractic have specialties. These may range from sports medicine chiropractors to chiropractic internists. If they are a sports chiropractor they will be very well skilled in dealing with muscles, joints, and proper rehab exercises. If your Doctor is an internist they will be more inclined use supplements, diet, and joint manipulation to benefit you and your health.

It is important to feel comfortable with your doctor but make sure you are also comfortable with the front desk staff. You will spend time working with them and talking to them every time you come into the clinic. The front desk will work with you when you check in and answering any insurance or office charge questions. You want to feel comfortable no matter who you are talking to in the clinic.

2. Get a referral if possible: A medical referral is a great thing. It can come from another medical field or from a friend or family member that has had a great experience with their doctor. The referral can help you feel more comfortable when you are going to the doctor for the first time. It can also help you to make sure you are going to the correct doctor of chiropractic for your specific condition.

3. Research the doctor: The world today has made it very easy to have all of the information that you need FALL 2013

5. Understand your charges at the office: Financial obligation is always a portion of your office visit that you may or may not feel comfortable with. Therefore, it is important to completely understand what charges you are responsible for at each visit. Make sure if you don’t understand the charges that the front desk staff takes the time to completely answer these for you. If you have insurance it is important to make sure your doctor of chiropractic is in network with your insurance company.

CHIROPRACTORS Dr. P. Paige Mott, DC Choosing a holistic approach to healthcare has become a rising trend among Loveland residents and the most common form of holistic health care in Loveland is provided by chiropractic care. To help Loveland residents make informed choices about chiropractic care, this edition of Living in Loveland includes two articles on The History of Chiropractic Care and How to Select Your Chiropractor. Loveland residents are health oriented and progressive. This makes chiropractic care a natural philosophical fit for many Loveland residents. The holistic nature of chiropractic care usually includes an emphasis on a healthy lifestyle including exercise, nutrition and preventative care.

FALL 2013

Loveland residents are very active and many participate in mountain sports which sometimes results in injuries. Treatment of injuries with chiropractic care is a well-respected and essential part of unified medical treatment that often includes other medical professionals. The Loveland chiropractic community includes approximately 20 clinics. In addition to chiropractors, these clinics are often staed with massage therapists, nutritionists and acupuncturists. The Living in Loveland magazine is a lifestyle magazine and we are pleased to provide you with a peek into the life of Dr. Paige Mott.


DR. P. PAIGE MOTT, CHOICE CHIROPRACTOR Studying With The Real Patch Adams


ogs tug at the heart strings of the Loveland community and Dr. Mott is a dog lover. She has two lovable yellow Labradors. Chiro is the older of the two and serves in Dr. Mott’s family clinic as a therapy dog. Dr. Mott and her staff are exceptional caregivers, but Chiro is a patient favorite. Karma is the younger of the two dogs and is training to become Chiro’s therapy partner. Like most Loveland families, Dr. Mott’s pets are family members and their health is important to her. Dr. Mott teaches a program on how to translate chiropractic healthcare to animals ( and is Board Certified by American Veterinarian Chiropractic Association. Interestingly, Dr. Mott’s journey to becoming a chiropractor began in the trading bullpens of banks located in Los Angeles and Chicago. Dr. Mott was an institutional trader for five years before her life changed at age 27 from a skiing accident that occurred on a business trip. Her injuries required surgery and she was told that she would never walk again without the use of a cane. However, Dr. Mott refused to accept that prognosis and sought treatment from a chiropractor. She was skiing again exactly one year after her accident as the result of chiropractic care. This accident changed her life and her career path. Dr. Mott enrolled in the Palmer College of Chiropractic where she excelled and graduated Magna Cum Laude. As an avid learner, Dr. Mott and her team traveled all over the world to study with other leaders in the healing profession, including the real Patch Adams. After graduation from Palmer College, Dr. Mott toured the United States to find the perfect city. She chose Loveland because she preferred a small community and because she loves the state of Colorado. After eleven years of practicing in Loveland, Dr. Mott knows she made the right choice. Dr. Mott’s commitment to education and excellence continues as demonstrated with the awarding of various certifications including Acupuncture, Pediatric Chiropractic, Wellness Science and Nutrition and the Kalish Method of Natural Hormone Balance. The most treasured of Dr. Mott’s honors is her designation as a Royal Chiropractic Knight of the Roundtable, one of the highest honors in the chiropractic profession.





ENJOY THE HOLIDAYS STRESS FREE Is this your first Thanksgiving meal to prepare? Are you stressing out at the thought? Let us help you plan a day you can enjoy along with your guests.

EARLY NOVEMBER Plan your menu. Turkey is the traditional meat so if you want a fresh one order it now. Frozen turkeys will be on sale for the holidays, so take advantage of the specials. Just remember that a frozen turkey takes 4 to 5 days to thaw safely in the refrigerator so plan accordingly and don’t wait until the last minute to shop. Go to your local florist to order any center pieces you might want for the holiday. Florists are very busy this time of year so plan ahead.




Start defrosting the turkey in the coldest part of the fridge. Start making your shopping list. It may be easier to remember what you need by writing down your menu, pulling out all the recipes, and checking to see what you already have on hand so you are not doubling up on some ingredients and forgetting something else. Your list will undoubtedly be long so check things off as you search your pantry. Go shopping Make pie crust dough, roll out, and put into pie pans to freeze.

2 DAYS OUT The holidays are a good time to bring out your best dishes. Make sure they are free of dust and wash any that have not been used recently. Make sure the glasses are spot free. Check the table linens to see it they are clean and free of wrinkles. Your cranberry sauce can be made now. A couple of days in the refrigerator will enhance the flavor. Cut or cube your bread for the stuffing and lay it out on a baking sheet in a single layer so it has a chance to dry out. Stale bread makes the best stuffing!

THE DAY BEFORE If you ordered a fresh turkey today is the day you should pick it up. Prepare the stuffing, but if you are using raw eggs in the stuffing leave them out until you are ready to bake it. Make the giblet stock for the gravy. (if you don’t know what giblets are, ask your Grandma!) Take out the pie crust from freezer to defrost. Make pies and any other desserts. Peel potatoes and refrigerate them in a pan of water Prepare the vegetable casseroles and side dishes that require baking. You can either bake them today and reheat on Thanksgiving or wait and bake them right before dinner. Set the table tonight or first thing in the morning. Plan out your cooking schedule for the next day. Depending on what time you are eating and how big the turkey is will determine what time you need to start your day, so plan accordingly! If you have a small oven you will need to plan bake times and temperatures very carefully. Writing down a specific timeline for everything will be very helpful.


Don’t panic! If you have stuck to your schedule you will be fine!

Set out the turkey. It should sit out about 2 hours before putting it in the oven. Finish making the stuffing and if you are using eggs it is safe to put them in now. Preheat the oven and if stuffing the turkey do it now. Put turkey in oven, basting every 30 minutes. Cooking time will depend on the size of your bird, so look up recommended cook times. You can easily look up cook times online (we recommend Make the mashed potatoes (about an hour before mealtime set them over simmering water in a heat proof bowl on the back of your stove to keep them warm and fluffy.) If your casseroles are ready but have not been baked put them in the oven an hour before the feast so they will be hot when serving. If you cooked them earlier, reheat 30 minutes before. Check the turkey for doneness in the thigh area or thickest part of the turkey with a meat thermometer making sure it reads 165 degrees. Remove turkey from oven and let it sit 30 minutes before carving. (Now that the turkey is out of the oven you can put the pre-cooked casseroles back in to reheat.) Make the gravy, allowing at least 10 minutes , if you are making a lot of gravy it takes awhile. Put salads and relishes on the table and make sure the beverage glasses are filled. The hot dishes should be put in serving dishes so that they can be passed. Everything should be on the table! Have everyone take their seat and bring in the guest of honor, the turkey!

CARVING THE BIRD Place your bird on a cutting board with a deep perimeter well to capture the flavorful juices of the bird as you are carving. A carving set which includes a twopronged fork and a sharp non-serrated knife can be very helpful while you are working on this masterpiece of a meal. Let the bird sit at room temperature for about twenty minutes before you begin carving. This will allow the juices in the bird to settle and will result in a more flavorful and moist meat. If you carve the turkey too quickly the juices will run out and the meat will be dry. If you trussed the bird, which means you wrapped it in twine, carefully remove the string from around the turkey. If you used any skewers to hold the inner cavity of the bird closed remove these now. If you had placed your stuffing inside the bird while cooking use a long handled spoon and scoop the stuffing out. If you are having a hard time getting all the stuffing out make a small incision at the neck of the turkey. You can usually reach the remainder of the stuffing from this side easily. Save yourself a step and put your stuffing into a serving dish now. Start cutting the turkey by first removing the leg and thigh from each side. Begin removing the thigh by cutting through the thin layer of skin holding the thigh to the body of the turkey. Continue with this cut until you reach the hip joint. Insert the knife tip into the hip joint and cut to sever the entire thigh and leg from the body. Repeat this process on the other side of the turkey. Separating the leg and thigh is very easy. Locate the joint between these two parts and cut until you reach the joint. Pull the two apart until you can see the joint holding them together and then separate these two structures. It requires little effort to cut through the seam between the leg and thigh. Since your thigh is now free you want to slice the meat off it. A great tip for everyone is to remove the thigh meat from the bone before trying to cut it into neat slices. Remove the meat from the bone by gently scraping the meat until you see the outline of the bone. Then run the tip of the knife around the edges of the bone to separate it from the meat. The bone is then ready to be removed cleanly. The remaining thigh meat can be sliced neatly and easily into serving sized portions. Removing the wings is similar to removing the thighs. Gently pull the wing until you can locate the ball joint that attaches it to the body. Insert the knife tip into the joint and twist while pulling the wing. The wing will easily separate from the body with a couple additional cuts to remove tendons around the joint. No further work is required because the wing is best served whole. Now you are ready to slice the breast meat. Don’t look like a novice by cutting the breast inward towards the bone. If you truly want to impress your friends and family follow our method for cleaning this part of the bird. Find the breastbone at the top and center of the breast. Make your first cut right down the length of the turkey on one side of the bone. Make repeated slices that are deeper each time. Do this until you are able to cut all of the breast meat from one side of the bone. The breast should come away in one large chunk. Repeat this on the other side of the bone. Place your prized chunk of turkey breast on a cutting board and slice the boneless meat into handsome medallions. Medallion cuts will retain more juices than the thin familiar slices we are all accustomed to having at thanksgiving dinner. Cut the breast meat against the grain for easier cutting and better looking cuts of meat. Trust us your guests will thank you once they taste the difference. Collect your treasured cuts and arrange them on your serving platter becase you are ready to feast!

THANKSGIVING TRIVIA The first Thanksgiving was celebrated at Jamestown. It was about twenty miles north of Jamestown, Virginia. The colonists started a yearly autumn feast on December 4, 1620, at the small 8,000 acre hamlet of Berkeley Hundred. It was called a “day of thanksgiving” to God and was held annually to remember the day they arrived in Virginia in 1619. It is also believed that the first Thanksgiving was celebrated by the pilgrims in 1621 after surviving a year in the New World. The local Wampanoag Native American tribe was invited by the pilgrims to help celebrate because they had helped them work the land and survive the winter. It was held in Plymouth, MA. The feast lasted 3 days. It was not the Thanksgiving meal we think of, but consisted of lobster, rabbit, chicken, eggs, goat cheese, cabbage, leeks, and radishes. Before 1863 The President of the U. S. would declare when Thanksgiving would be held by making a ‘Thanksgiving Proclamation’. President Lincoln officially set aside the last Thursday in November to be Thanksgiving. In 1939 President Franklin D. Roosevelt changed Thanksgiving to the third Thursday of November to try to help the struggling economy by making the holiday shopping season longer. It remained that way until 1941, when congress once again declared Thanksgiving to be held on the fourth Thursday of November.

The first Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade was held in 1924. It featured Central Park zoo animals, people in costumes, and floats. The first large helium-filled balloon was of Felix the Cat in 1927. Each year, more that 2 million people line the streets of New York City to watch the annual Macy’s Thanksgiving Day parade. The Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade began airing on network television in 1948 and is now watched by about 50 million people. Benjamin Franklin wanted the turkey to be our national bird, but Thomas Jefferson vehemently opposed the idea. It is said that Benjamin retaliated by naming the male turkeys “toms” after Jefferson. Approximately 242 million turkeys are raised each year for Thanksgiving dinner. 91% of American homes serve turkey on Thanksgiving because it is readily available. The turkey actually has no historic ties to Thanksgiving. The day after Thanksgiving is known as “Black Friday” and is the official start of the holiday season. The average person consumes 4,500 calories on Thanksgiving Day.
