Dr. Lou always said “Take your Vitamin D”

August 24, 2010

It’s no news or secret that vitamin D is critical for your body. It’s also old news that those of us living in the northeast miss out on vitamin D production from the sun during the winter. Supplementing with Vitamin D also has an impact on your risk of acquiring certain diseases. Research is suggesting that Cancer is one of those illnesses. I would highly recommend the book “The Vitamin D Solution” Read More on Vitamin D and...

Chiropractor Chiropractic Portland, Maine

Doc encourages mustache growth to fight cancerBy Betty Jespersen, Special to the Sun JournalPublished Aug 11, 2010 12:10 pm Dr. Lou Jacobs, a Farmington native and Portland-based chiropractor, is encouraging men to grow mustaches to raise money for cancer research. Growing a mustache to raise awareness of cancer is an odd thing to do, but Dr. Lou Jacobs is hoping the idea is quirky enough to catch on. The Farmington-born chiropractor and acupuncturist with a busy practice in Portland sports a waxed, handlebar mustache that he started growing when his mother, Patty, was diagnosed with inflammatory breast cancer last year. A runner and locally known volunteer in Farmington, she died in May of complications from the aggressive disease. Now his father, Bert, a psychology professor at the University of Maine at Farmington, has contracted leukemia and is scheduled to have a bone-marrow transplant later this month. “At first, I grew it as a joke and Mom thought it was funny,” Lou Jacobs said Monday. “She kidded around and said she would have preferred I had been a clown rather than a chiropractor.” He had contemplated organizing the mustache-growing fundraiser when his mother was still alive, but it wasn’t the...

Oregon Wild Hair Enterprises

August 18, 2010 I found myself with an empty tin of Oregon Wild Hair Mustache Wax. With 2+ inches of handlebar bilaterally, I can’t really do without it. Without wax I look more like a walrus than a man with a handle bar. I wax the mustache once a day. Every morning. It generally lasts the rest of the day unless I wash it out. Yesterday was the end of my supply. I knew that I had a shipment on the way as part of my sponsorship from OWHE. The problem was, it hadn’t come yet and all I had at home to groom the stache was a bottle of olive oil and a tube of cherry chapstick. Neither appealed to me. This morning, for the first and hopefully last time, I waxed with chapstick. It tasted and smelled horrible, didn’t hold together well and it made my coffee taste like a candle. By late morning my package from Mark & Susan, owners of OWHE had arrived. In it, enough moustache wax to last a year. They also included two wonderful coffee mug/Beer mugs. Thursday, August 18, 2010 was a great day in Portland,...
