Mind Body Spirit Living – Focusing on Healthy Habits with Dr. Scott Sheriff
January 4, 2017
There are many dimensions to being “healthy”, and committing to prioritizing aspects of our health is often part of the beginning of a new year. Though each individual plan will differ, there are some universal habits that, when incorporated into a regular routine, can contribute to overall health. What are these habits that we should be claiming as part of our “habit refresh”? Our guest this week is a Chiropractor who takes a holistic view of the health of his patients, and focuses on all the ways to help them make small changes that can bring more focus to their health and wellness. Tune in as we get inspired to bring new habits into our lives in the new year!
Dr. Scott Sheriff was born and raised in Racine, Wisconsin. After living for a time in Los Angeles, Milwaukee, and Chicago, he returned to Racine to be closer to his family. On sunny afternoons, you might find him running the paths along the lakefront, walking his dog, local parks or hanging out with friends at almost any coffee shop.
Dr. Sheriff is an active member of the Racine community. He volunteers his time and serves on several committees at the HOPES Center, an organization that works diligently to help mentally ill and homeless people get back on their feet.
Dr. Sheriff studied biology and chemistry at UW-Parkside, graduating with a Master of Science degree in Molecular Biology in 1998. He then worked at UCLA studying prostate cancer and at the Medical College of Wisconsin studying the herpes virus.
In 2003, Dr. Sheriff witnessed the profound effect that chiropractic care had on the healing of a close friend after an automobile accident. He realized that his true calling was to work one-on-one with people – naturally and safely – to help their bodies heal from pain. So, he enrolled in the National University of Health Sciences in Lombard, IL. He earned his Doctorate of Chiropractic in 2007. Since that time, he has pursued further education in nutrition, functional rehabilitation, working with athletes and biomechanics of the foot.
