Years ago, I can’t remember how many but it’s been a while, it became obvious to me that whether we like it or not we need to supplement with fish oil. “We” being most of us, I am sure there is someone who doesn’t need it. The mountain of research in favor had reached a point though where I began to search out a source and think through the details of what supplements would do the trick. (At the time I got a lot of my information from Dr. Dan Murphy, a guy who follows the research and knows a lot about a lot of things.)
Anyway, for the purposes of this Post, here is information in favor of the decision to take fish oil. It’s still a good decision.
As usual you can’t just buy the cheapest thing you find at COSTCO or WALMART like everyone else does – that won’t do it; in fact we pretty much know where that will get you. Here is an earlier Post with the necessary choice-making details.

“U.S. spending on prescription drugs soared last year, driven up primarily by costly breakthrough medications, manufacturer price hikes and a surge from millions of people newly insured due to the Affordable Care Act. Spending rose 13 percent, the biggest jump since 2001, to a total of $374 billion, according to a report released Tuesday by the IMS Institute for Healthcare Informatics. After accounting for population growth and inflation, the increase equaled 10 percent.”
This week’s news on the radio is about how the large employers are subsidized by the fact that their low wage, low benefit employee packages force people into the social “safety net” of publicly funded programs (think the Washington Apple health “insurance” – aka welfare, for one).
Somehow we are supposed to believe that this whole thing isn’t playing out exactly as it’s designed to. The only good news is that parasites can’t survive if they kill off the host entirely.

A patient and I were talking about his exercises. He wasn’t doing the ones I gave him but he was doing several – a couple that I would never recommend because they put the low back into flexion, increase the stress on the lowest disc in the spine, and put the back in a very high risk situation. Anyway we had to discuss that but, in the course of the conversation, the sock drawer came up…
And the question of why the socks would be in the lowest drawer. Good question. Put the stuff you handle everyday (or all day every day, even moreso) at the level of between the knees and the shoulders. Then always maintain your neutral spine when bending, even if you are only bending over far enough to do dishes.
Remember that the lower you go into a bend and lift event, the more you have to sink your weight into your heels and pull your hips back. If none of this makes sense be sure to talk with me about it on your next visit. We all go through the bend and lift motion every day. Do it wrong a million times and you get hurt, eventually. Do it correctly a million times and you stay fit and healthy and out of pain.
Then you can get to the socks no matter what drawer they are in:-)
