The Body is Brilliant- What Self-Healing Looks Like 

Here at Life University (Life U), it is common for students and faculty to get used to hearing and throwing around terms such as Vitalism and self-healing, but occasionally it can be easy to forget that these life-changing healthcare concepts are not necessarily public knowledge to the rest of the world. If you are new to the Life U community or simply interested in learning more about what Vitalism and self-healing looks like, this article will serve as a solid introduction.

Thrifting: Kinder to the Planet and Your Wallet

Life University (Life U) is committed to a more sustainable future. This is perhaps most evident in our Human Ecology program, which explores how human behavior impacts the larger environment. To that end, we love to share simple and easy ways that our Life U community can make a positive impact on Mother Earth. There is one everyday lifestyle choice that has substantial environmental implications: fashion.

Faces of LIFE- Stephanie Fischer

Stephanie Fischer grew up in South Florida in a Hispanic household, living with her mother and her brother. She considers herself to be very family-oriented and keeps up with her family as much as she can. For her undergraduate degree, Fischer achieved a Bachelor of Science in Alternative Medicine from Everglades University in Boca Raton, Florida. Coincidentally, one of her favorite professors attended Life University (Life U) and “planted the seed” for Fischer over time that she should consider furthering her education at Life U as a chiropractic student.

Stress Management Tips in Time for Busy Holidays

In an ideal world, the holidays are meant to be a time of light, love and laughter. We hope that, along with friends and family, you will get in the holiday spirit by joining in the festivities surrounding Life University’s Lights of LIFE holiday campus-wide lights displays, which run from Thanksgiving Night to New Year’s Eve. But despite the colorful decorations and general sense of goodwill, the holiday season can often become a pressure cooker for stress, as familial obligations, financial worries and more start to build up.

A bit fit? Examining Fitness Trackers’ Effectiveness

Have you ever had a friend who complained that they didn’t want to work out because they forgot their FitBit or Apple Watch at home and therefore their efforts ‘won’t count’? I have seen this, and I am also guilty of kicking myself for forgetting my beloved fitness tracker watch in the charger at home. This obsessive and seemingly counter-productive fixation on tracking steps and fitness begs the question: Is all this emphasis on digital fitness tracking and wearables even helping people?

My 1st Quarter, Slice of LIFE

My First Quarter- Keely Nguyen

I would honestly say it’s the close friend group that I made. I made all my best friends at orientation. We are all still really close now. But because I was part of the ‘Covid Quarter,’ I had classes completely online. So, I didn’t get the full Life University (Life U) first-quarter experience, but because I had all of them in my cohort going through the D.C. program, they made my first quarter more memorable because we got to study together, [sit] through lectures together. It created a really great sense of community even though we weren’t in classes on the ground.

Faces of LIFE- Dr. Selina Sigafoose-Jackson

The Sigafoose Family is synonymous with Life University (Life U). Dr. Selina Sigafoose-Jackson’s parents, Dr. Jim Sigafoose and Patsy Sigafoose, are both co-founders of Life U. Their daughter continued the family tradition, graduating from the College of Chiropractic program at Life U in September 1989. Sigafoose-Jackson was born and raised in York County, Pennsylvania and never expected that she would end up back there, but that is exactly where she and her husband Dr. Kevin Jackson have lived since moving from Florida some 31 years ago.
