“Better Than Drugs…”

“Better Than Drugs Berries Are So Powerful Even Scientists Are Stunned”

That is the title to cover story of the current BottomLine Personal. It goes on to talk about “Berries and the Brain”, then “Berries and your Heart”, and finally “Berries and Cancer”.

The message: Berries are Good with a capital G. I could not agree more.

Get your Berries here…

This should bring to mind a few of the things from class: not just the drills, but the words that go with.

Calcium Supplements May Increase Dementia Risks

Filed under: Uncategorized — doctordilday @ 12:13 pm

This is from BottomLine: Personal, April 1, 2017 (And, no, it’s not a joke!)

“Calcium supplements may increase dementia risk, reports Silke Kern, MD, PhD. Recent finding: Women over age 70 with a history of stroke who regularly took calcium supplements had nearly seven times higher risk for dementia than other stroke survivors. If you had a stroke, ask your physician whether the risk from calcium supplements outweighs the benefit.”

(Silke Kern, MD, PhD, is a neuropsychiatric researcher at Sahlgrenska Academy, University of Gothenburg, Sweden, and coauthor of a study of 700 women, published in Neurology.)

[Note: Calcium, and other individual supplements, have been discussed repeated on the Blog, in the office, and at the presentations done from time to time in the office. The question, chiropractically, isn’t a risk/benefit question regarding an individual supplement, given to treat a problem. The question is, “How do you make sure that you are getting all the minerals that you need to promote health?” The answer is to eat 7-10 servings of vegetables and fruits each day, as well as berries, nuts, legumes, and whole grains. And if you can not, will not, or do not do that: eat JuicePlus+ whole food products that will provide those foods.]

Imagine being a woman over 70 who has had a stroke – then finding out (if you found out) that taking that Calcium supplement that so many people still recommend, may have contributed to that stroke! Whole food is the answer to health: not an isolated, individual, nutrient.

Typical

Filed under: Uncategorized — doctordilday @ 11:53 am

A patient was in yesterday that has not been in for over eight years, which is typical for her. She complained of moderately severe low back pain, again typical for her, that came on a few weeks ago (after lifting some packing bins… which is typical). She said that episodes of low back pain had come and gone over the recent years (typical in these kinds of cases), but now she was taking four Advil and one muscle relaxer every eight hours, and not sleeping more than a couple hours at a time. Her right leg was also beginning to feel numb to the touch.

She had gone to the medical doctor, who recommended drugs – they added one to the nine she already takes daily, recommended heat, and to “Follow up in two weeks if not improved.” Again typical, typical, and… typical.

Paperwork-wise she had to be treated like a new patient, but actually she has been a patient here for over thirty years. So after she was examined, she was adjusted, and I recommended she stop the heat that others had suggested, and try ice the way I recommend it. She left still limping and bent over.

The phone message that she left this morning said that she was “so much better”, had slept 8 hours straight, and overall she thought it was “amazing”. She just wanted to let us know. And she said she would see us for her next scheduled appointment.

Typical.

Tai Chi Classes: Research Speaks!

Filed under: Exercise, Tai Chi Chuan, Uncategorized — Tags: , — doctordilday @ 12:48 pm

What follows I lifted from a report on a research paper involving our style of tai chi (the first section of the Hand Form was taught). After laughing uncontrollably, I thought I would share it because, the very same thing could be said for why some people do not continue for long in tai chi classes… just saying.

“Participants generally enjoyed Tai-chi for the benefit it brought to their physical and mental health. Others found it to be a pleasurable activity although a few did not enjoy the level of persistence required by the slow yet energy-demanding Tai-chi movements. Other difficulties arose from the complexity of movements.

Our class is Monday nights at 7 p.m. at the Everett Peak Health and Fitness club on the corner of Hewitt and Rucker. Fees are $5 pre-paid (5 or 10 classes) or $10 per class, otherwise.

Cell Phone Radiation & Your Health: the R2L

family-2

The R2L Reduces your exposure to damaging electromagnetic frequencies. We have them at the office if you would like to decrease your risk. ($29 plus tax = $31.69).

“The R2L is the smart choice for reducing your family’s exposure to cell phone radiation…

…because it’s the only product PROVEN to reduce your exposure to cell phone radiation up to 70%; that shows you that it’s working. Today, we use our cell phones and smart phones a lot more often than when the safety standards were written 30 years ago, and we’re exposing ourselves to far more radiation than anyone could ever have imagined.”
