Neuroplasticity is a word that refers to the brain and nerve systems’ ability to change in response to use. Used in the rehabilitation and fitness world, and now more recently in connection with all kinds of other things: here is an article that says the same thing with different words.

Notice where the author did not get help; and where they eventually did. Sad state of affairs, modern medicine.

Old news is new news. If you align yourself poorly with gravity and spent time that way, bad stuff happens.
That graphic is a great one. It conveys – and the research puts the numbers to it – the effect of what we call Forward Head Posture (FHP). FHP is the single most common postural distortion we see in patients with back, neck, headache and shoulder pain complaints (remember Sitting Is The New Smoking?).
Not easy to fix when it been established over decades, and devastating to the biomechanics of movement as well as standing and sitting, this condition is a sign that there is a serious process going on – with or without the pain that will eventually accompany it.
FHP is an obvious outward sign of a complicated (complex) dysfunctional process that involves not just isolated alignment but also compensatory skeletal changes, reflex and other neurological changes, tissues changes (inflammation), and muscular changes (spasm and contracture) that lead to degenerative changes (arthritis), and a myriad of complaints and conditions.
Best to prevent it if possible, correct it early when you can, and address all the aspects of it if it’s well developed if you can’t, won’t or don’t prevent or catch it early. We can help. Call 425.348.5207.

New research on milk…
I highly recommend you read The China Study if you haven’t already. It’s isn’t a new book by now but everything in it is current and there is a lot in it! It is the largest study of it’s type and will never be duplicated.

From The JuiceLady… Don’t read this like it’s an excuse to be confused – it isn’t.
The whole thing can be summed up with this: “:all government dietary guidance should come with a tobacco-style caution: Following this advice could seriously damage your health.”
This Post and many others are listed under “Be careful who you listen to” for a reason.

…if you do, it comes highly recommended, and seems like an amazing place. I didn’t hear about it until last week… I don’t know why.

I had a call today from Canada. A friend wanted to know more about Kangen Water. (His son had visited friends who had an SD501 and was very impressed after drinking it for a few days.) We talked, then we had a 3- way call with Howard Phillips. Howard does the best demonstrations locally and knows the water inside and out. I was impressed with how he could cover the main points over the phone – we usually show people what makes the water different because that way they begin to get the idea better.
The three of us also got online at the same time and brought up the Enagic site where we could look at models and discuss the pros and cons of each.
Howard followed up with an email to my friend in Canada, cc to me, that included the above PDF (my friend had asked the question, actually his wife had). It also included what follows. I just thought that the whole thing was cool so I am sharing it with you. This is how it works. If you would like to know more, give me a call at (425)348-5207.

I am one of them, but it still slays me. Here is a great spot for shooting – especially rifles which need distance. But the gun people (some of them) feel Ok leaving a mess behind (others of course show up with garbage bags and take out as much as they can carry). Why?
When this place is shut down to shooting, these same people will likely have a complaint. I don’t get it.

The medical doctor says, “You should go see your Chiropractor.”
That was the story for the second patient that I saw today.
I mentioned that she hadn’t been in for over a year and a half, and might have stopped by a little earlier. No need to mention that she should have thought to come in herself when she got dizzy – given her history (this isn’t the first time).
Many patients go so long between chiropractic visits that they forget where to go or where they last went to get relief (These patients use chiropractic care for relief only… by definition:-) She had first come in in 2011 and after a half dozen visits got great relief from her chronic severe headaches. Since that time she may make in annually, but not always. She isn’t quite a “typical” patient, but she is not at all unusual either (though most have back or neck pain, of course).
Reminds me of a patient that doctor Thompson used to talk about who would have headaches so bad that she would end up admitted into the hospital. Each time (for at least three occasions) she got clear to the point of being in the hospital (it would take a month or more of doctors visits, regular drugs, etc.) before she remembered that getting adjusted always took care of her headaches.

“As noted in American Medical news, the working, but unacknowledged, philosophy of medicine is “The elimination of all sickness and disease will leave you with health.”* When brought into the light of day this philosophy is obviously flawed and untrue, however, it is the unstated philosophy that many conventional providers are indoctrinated with and the bias that their education contains. This is not “good” or “bad,” but is something you need to be aware of in you interactions with the conventional system of care.”
That excerpt from a book not yet published will give some folks something to think about.

“If you don’t know your own value, somebody will tell you your value, and it’ll be less than you’re worth.”
– Bernard Hopkins, Boxing’s Oldst – and Most Cunning – Champion… via The New York Times.
Yeah, I know. He lost his recent fight. That doesn’t change anything; the guy who beat him won’t be around as long.
