For Tai Chi Students: Running Thunder Hand (Wim Demeere-Brussels)

We talk about this a lot in class; and practice it almost every session. Here, Wim, has fleshed out some nuances and applied it ways that, once you see them demonstrated, seem intuitive and natural – given everything else that we do.

Insomnia: Another Reason to do Tai Chi?

Yep!

Mountain of Evidence = Compelling

Keeping in mind that it is evidence that causes us to believe what we believe – or keep believing what we believe…

…I don’t remember all of the story that I told myself in the days prior to taking fish oil… I know there was the I-will-be-tasting-it-all-day part, and the it-is-expensive part, I remember those. Anyway, at some point ten to twelve years ago, I think, I was reading a review article (an article reviewing all of the available research at the time) and finally conceded that there was a mountain of evidence in favor of it (and the article detailed the who to buy from, how much to take, etc. making my choices confident – because I trusted the source of the article!).

So, I began taking it.

Here is a report on a new research study, pretty much like many of the earlier studies in that it relates fish oil to brain health, that you might find compelling. If so and you need details on the when, where, why, and how, then just give us a call. (425) 348-5207.

P.S. – I know that the JuicePlus+ people have produced a brand new product that is a plant-based omega 3 product, but I have not gotten enough information, yet, to recommend it. The fact that we can trust that it is impeccably healthy doesn’t go far enough, by itself. So far I have not seen that it actually covers all the things an omega 3 supplement should. Eventually, there will be published research, like there is for all the other JuicePlus+ products, and we won’t have to wonder: we will know. For now, I need to do more study and learn more about it.

“Remarkable and a major breakthrough” I Don’t Think So

More amazing research on the benefits of fasting!

I have been a student of fasting for over 40 years, and this is the second recent report on new research showing that the benefits are almost unbelievable: but they are predictable and do happen over and over and over.

I reported, briefly, a couple of years ago about research on fasting that was remarkable and a breakthrough – but there isn’t any research news on fasting that is not positive – it is all almost too good to be true.

This is news that I can not help but share. I hope that you find it helpful.

All NSAIDs Linked to Increased MI Risk: Medscape Article

Published in Medline, by Pauline Anderson, May 10, 2017

Use of nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), including naproxen, considered by some as one of the safest drugs in this class, is associated with a significantly increased risk for myocardial infarction (MI), results of a new patient-level meta-analysis show.

The analysis showed the heightened MI risk occurred as early as the first week of use and the risk was greater with higher doses.

“This new research on NSAIDs reinforces what physicians know already, that patients should use the smallest possible dose for the shortest possible time,” Michèle Bally, PhD, an epidemiologist in the Department of Pharmacy and Research Center, Centre hospitalier de l’Université de Montréal, Quebec, Canada, told Medscape Medical News.

Even though the research suggests the increased MI risk lessened over time, “the findings were not conclusive enough about longer duration,” said Dr Bally.

But for most patients, the risk is very small, she noted. “If you average people with different baseline heart risks, the risk specifically due to an NSAID is only about 1% per year, so out of 100 people treated continuously for a year, there will be one extra heart attack.”

The research was published online May 3 in BMJ.

Although previous studies have linked both traditional and cyclooxygenase-2 (COX-2) selective NSAIDs to increased MI risk, the timing of the risk, the effect of dose and treatment duration, and the comparative risks between different drugs are poorly understood, the researchers note.

The recently reported Prospective Randomized Evaluation of Celecoxib Integrated Safety Vs Ibuprofen Or Naproxen (PRECISION) study found that at moderate doses, celecoxib was noninferior to ibuprofen or naproxen with regard to cardiovascular safety.

Consumer Reports: Real Relief from Back Pain

WSDOTworker150x150   (How many safety features can you find on this WSDOT site photo – arguably the largest organization in the State dedicated to safety? Yet, he doesn’t bend over correctly at all.)

I keep forgetting to mention that the current issue of Consumer Reports features a cover story on back pain. It is a very good review of what most of mainstream medicine recommends, and therefore what most people are doing – the lack of effectiveness, cost, and risks associated with that approach. And it covers alternative methods of addressing back pain, the proven effectiveness (which is why it is the cover story), cost savings, and safety. All of that is old news if you have been reading this Blog long (and if you search any of the key words in this Post you will find many posts – there are over a thousand here – on that subject).

Two things are interesting to me about the article: what is right in plain sight, but missed entirely due to mindset; and how, still, the recommendations regarding how to bend and lift are erroneous – harmful even.

First, the mindset thing. Modern medicine is about treating symptoms: some will argue that but just look at what is said and what is the object of all the focus – back pain (a symptom) in this case, but it is everywhere all of the time if you look. And while they fairly accurately talk about the causes, they fail to conclude that substantially addressing these causes would be a means of preventing the symptom. Instead they point out, for example, that abnormal findings on X-rays is common among people who do not suffer with back pain. (That should be a clue, why isn’t it?)

Secondly, but related, is this whole business of correct bending and lifting technique – how could they get it so thoroughly wrong so consistently. How could they not connect the dots – remember the ‘they’ is the authoritative bodies of professional experts spewing opinions, guidelines, and recommendations (shifting gazillions of dollars within the economy)… but let’s not go down the cynical path.

I share all of this because we have a copy in the reception room – with the best parts highlighted (be me:-). Read it, but ignore the part about how to bend and lift, and talk with me about that.
