Doctor of Chiropractic and Yoga Teacher Dr. Laura Latham, DC BS RYT on blending chiropractic care and yoga, meditation as food, and being co-captain with her patients

Well this is a TYTP first - I have the partner of a previous guest on the pod today! Dr. Laura Latham is married to episode 5’s guest Dr. Tim Latham! How cute is this?!! I know so many of you loved Tim’s episode, and you’re going to absolutely love Laura’s equally as much. They are both such compassionate, knowledgeable, and intentional providers, which comes across so clearly in each of their amazing interviews.

I so enjoyed sitting down and chatting with Laura about all of her passions, which include chiropractic care and yoga. She is brilliant, and balances those brains with being genuine and down-to-earth. I had the best time talking with her and we connected effortlessly. Ihighly recommend seeking her out for chiropractic or yoga support, she is a true gem of a doctor and a lovely woman!

Doctor of Chiropractic, Nutritionist, and Functional Medicine Practitioner Dr. Tim Latham, DC MS CSCS - transforming lives through conscious living

This man saved my life. Basically.

I’m so happy to be releasing this episode with Dr. Tim Latham, DC MS CSCS, a brilliant jack-of-all-trades. He’s got multiple degrees and areas of expertise, and he continues to learn all that he can about the ever-changing field of integrative health. I was fortunate to have connected with Tim after being diagnosed with a chronic pain + fatigue illness; through testing and non-judgmental conversations, he helped me make easy tweaks to increase my body’s ability to heal, recover, and thrive. I’d honestly never felt better!

This episode is chock full of great recommendations for anyone to improve their overall health, as Tim shares simple ways to increase one’s quality of life through nutrition and movement. We talk about the body’s resiliency, and challenging false beliefs one has about the body’s durability. Anyone who nerds out over science and health will love this episode!

Find Tim, his wife Dr. Laura Latham, and other integrative providers at their group practice in Boston at Back Bay Health & Performance, and you can also catch Tim as an adjunct faculty member in the Integrative and Functional Nutrition program at Saybrook University.

In this episode we hear:

  • all about Tim’s educational background and his many health degrees

  • about what exactly is an elimination diet and what the heck a FODMAP is

  • easy, accessible ways to improve one’s health

  • the body’s resiliency

  • how to challenge negative beliefs

  • what to expect in an appointment with Tim

  • how to avoid feeling overwhelmed when in the midst of a health revamp

  • how Chiropractic isn’t all about back cracking

  • about certain wellness fads and Tim’s thoughts on their validity

  • how mindfulness and breath-work are just as important to address as diet

  • about Tim’s self-care practice

  • some swears - yup, I’ve officially sworn/cussed/cursed on the podcast, folks!
