Logo Design Contest for The Down to Earth Doctor

Posted by admin September - 13 - 2011 - Tuesday Comments Off

Help! I need a clever logo.

I’ve been a full-time holistic lifestyle advocate for nearly 3 years. I’m known world-wide as The Down to Earth Doctor; and I’ve got nothing to show for it – in the form of a logo that is. LOL!

Increasingly, as I’m requested to be a speaker at public events like health fairs, doctor’s conferences, work-place wellness programs, and conventions, participate in radio and television interviews, and asked to be an author for articles and books, I’m asked to provide my logo. It’s about time I get one.

So, I’m asking for your assistance in designing one. And I’m happy to reward you for your efforts. All those who submit an entry will receive a free digital copy of my book Whole Health Healing: The Budget Friendly Natural Wellness Bible for All Ages. The designer who’s logo is chosen to be used, the winner, will receive $75.00 and an autographed copy.


Healing book

To keep this legal, I must state that I reserve the right to reject any or all entrants, all submissions become my property, each person may submit a maximum of 3 original designs, and it’s open to all ages. The deadline for submissions is 12/1/2011.

Now here is some help. I’m branded and known as The Down to Earth Doctor for 2 reasons:

#1) I live very holistically. For example, I raise much of my own food by gardening and farming organically. I have chickens, pigs, and turkeys. My family (wife and 3 kids) get lots of outdoor physical activity by bicycling, hiking, swimming, canoeing, kayaking, etc. We use natural methods of real health care like chiropractic, eating wholesome food, prayer and spiritual growth, and lifetime learning (the real definition of health is optimal mental, spiritual, and physical wellbeing).

#2) I’m told I have a talent for teaching in a very conversational. easy-going, and practical manner. Although this also means I sometimes talk like a country bumpkin and say things like “yah-hey”. LOL!

Also, it may help you to understand what a full-time holistic lifestyle advocate is. My mission is to empower people to make wiser lifestyle decisions, particularly regarding their health. I help people minimize their health care expenses and decrease their dependence on traditional medical care. I say we need more self-care much more than we need more health care.

I also love to say that the only thing man ever really cured is a ham. LOL! By this I mean that our bodies are for the most part self healing and self regulating. We’ve each been gifted with our own internal doctor by God.  The key to optimal wellbeing is to give that inner doctor what it needs to do its job. Yah-hey!

You can learn even more details about me by reading my previous posts on this website.

So there you are. You may submit your design electronically via email to tpotisk@aol.com, or send it in to Dr Tom Potisk, PO Box 11, Caledonia, WI 53108.

Best of luck and may God bless you and your family with whole health,

Dr Tom Potisk

Pet Pictures

Posted by admin November - 24 - 2010 - Wednesday Comments Off

Pets are another wonderful gift from God , ; so are all animals for that matter. They make a nice component to optimum wellness.

Below are some pictures of my family’s pets with a few fun details.

Here is our dog Lou as a puppy getting squeezed by my son Mike and daughter Emily.

Lou is a Jackaby (half Beagle, half Jack Russell Terrier) and a real sweetie-pie. She never seems to get angry no matter how much we tease her. She loves it all! She barks like crazy when someone pulls into our drive way. But I think she would lick the hand of a burglar! LOL!

Lou loves boat rides too!

Lou loves fish. She kisses them!

And Lou gets along well with our cat Rosie! Except when food is involved – Yikes! That smiling face in the background is my son Andy.

Here is a closer look at Rosie. She’s a real lady with white on all 4 feet and the tip of her tail. She acts very dainty!

I’ve often wondered if my kids spoil our pets. Ya think?

And then there is our cat TJ (held here by my daughter Emily) What a life!

Was TJ kind of cute as a kitten?

TJ and Lou get along pretty well too!

My favorite of all is Lou. She found this shelf next to my desk and made herself at home. I wonder who else I’m putting to sleep? LOL!

My point with all this besides making you say “awwww”, is that optimum health and wellness has more to do with just the absence of symptoms. We are all more than just physical beings. Don’t forget to nurture your mental, emotional, and spiritual sides also. Love a pet today; it’s a natural!

Next time, I’ll share pictures of our farm animals – chickens, pigs, turkeys.

Relaxation: Don’t fight it

Posted by admin May - 4 - 2010 - Tuesday Comments Off

Relaxation comes naturally, if you let it.

I observe how my animals relax and learn a lot from them.

Pork Chop and Quiigley take a nap

I find some people are confused about relaxation. For example, some people will say “I’m going to relax and watch TV” or “I’m relaxing with a good book”. This is only partially relaxing. Remember that we are physical, mental, and spiritual. Watching TV and reading a book may relax the physical but the mental and spiritual are left out. This is quite a problem in our current era. All the media and electronics are wonderful advancements but they are stealing our mental and spiritual relaxation.

Recently, a very popular Pastor was interviewed as he was nearing the final chapter of his life. This world renowned Pastor was asked “Now that you can look back and reflect on your extraordinary life, what would you have done differently that you believe would have allowed you to accomplish even more?” His answer was profound. He said “I would spend a lot of time just sitting in a quiet private spot and just listen to God.” Wow!

So the solution to more relaxation is partly elimination (No, not a bowel movement. LOL). By elimination I mean getting away from and eliminating the distractions that interfere with our relaxation. The mind and spirit need as much rest if not more than or physical selves. TV, radio, internet, cell phones, and even background noise all interfere with our ability to really relax deeply.

This concept of real relaxation is so important that I placed instructions about how to attain it in my book Whole Health Healing – The Budget Friendly Natural Wellness Bible For All Ages.

Now if you have not done a true, deep mind and or spiritual relaxation before, you don’t know what you’ve been missing. You will likely discover an aspect of yourself that you will really like – inner peace. That attainment of inner peace is severely lacking in our American society compared to other cultures – especially eastern cultures.

Start by setting a time to be alone, in a quiet place for at least 30 minutes. This runs so counter to the norm in our society that if someone sees you or learns of your plans they may likely suspect that something is wrong with you. Just laugh it off and tell them that what’s wrong is that you haven’t been doing this enough.

Next, after getting in this quiet solitary place, lay or sit comfortably, pray for inner peace, and then just listen to the things around you. You may hear birds, cars, planes and may likely notice sounds you had not been paying attention to – that is a good start. If it’s a totally quiet place you may likely hear your self breathing or even your own heartbeat – this too is good.

The greatest battle you will have is fighting the thoughts of all the things you think you need to be doing that will initially be popping into your mind. It may take days or weeks to master clearing your mind, but each time you work at it you will get a little closer and you will notice 2 amazing things happen: 1) you will feel more refreshed and energetic afterward, 2) you will find it easier to recall and reclaim that feeling of inner peace in tense situations throughout your day.

You’ll also likely notice health benefits like less musculoskeletal pains, lower blood pressure, and even stronger immunity. Best of all – it’s free. Warning, it’s also addictive! Some addictions are good. LOL

Some people wonder “Why doesn’t God tell me what I should do?” When you get in this totally relaxed state, you may find out God was talking all along – you just did not take the time to hear. This is spiritual relaxation, letting go and letting God.

Do you think it would do you good to really relax?
