Correct Your Neck!



You need to correct that neck curve... What is the fastest way to do that? Use true neck traction, use a neck pillow, and do neck exercises. If you have a Chiropractor adjusting you too, even better. That is why I like this video; there's even before and after pictures. I like how he even uses a wall for resistance. You can use your hand or even a towel too... Here is where you can find the "true neck traction" with the posture pump... And, of course, my favorite pillow...

Miracles of the Chiropractic Adjustment...

As a Doctor of Chiropractic, I've seen a few different conditions. Even though my main focus was neck and back pain, the patient's would often mention other problems that seemed to resolve since undergoing treatment. A couple examples are: a patient being seen for upper and mid-back pain saw their heartburn resolve. Someone with lower back pain saw his foot issue resolve. There have been numerous cases like this... You know what - that individual didn't care how it happened really, just that it was gone!

Yet Another Fake Sugar...

Okay, here's the bottom line - if you want something sweat, use real sugar, don't use aspartame, something else fake, even stevia (primarily in tampered with looks pretty natural and comes from a plant, but who knows what they do to it?). Natural cane sugar is your best option.

They are finally acknowledging that aspartame is absolutely toxic (you know the fake sweetener in many things - all diet sodas for example). Anyway, my point is, they've got a newer sweetener - except it's made from chlorine - this may be even worse??? Are we going from bad to worse? - you be the judge... Watch out for it; don't eat it!

Am I Getting Enough Vitamin D?

When doing the basic blood test, anything less than 30ng/ml is considered low. According to the CDC(Centers for Disease Control) a significant number of males come up short of this number. Most areas it's very difficult to get enough sun because the angle to the earth is such that for most of the year you won't get the Vitamin D.

Here's what to do: You can always move to central Florida or further south where you are at a latitude where you get Vit D all year. That can a bit difficult though so I recommend taking a supplement. Also, keep in mind that animals store this vitamin in their fat. Therefore don't be afraid to eat meat with so fat. Lastly, don't drown yourself in sunscreen when you do go out. If you know you may get burnt - cover up.

Do You Do These Thing?

You posture - maybe just the way you sit or stand on a regular basis, will affect your health. You see, when things are not in good alignment, it will put pressure on nerves.

Sitting too much? Look at the Treadmill Desk!

I just watched how workers can be on a treadmill while working on a computer. I'm a fan of multitasking but sometimes it can be counter productive. For example - how can you type good while on a treadmill?
It's funny, I just met a woman at my gym I go to. I asked her: "do you mind if I change the channel?" She told she wasn't watching, and showed me her book. I just can't read or type while moving. I guess of you can, all the power to ya.

Do You Have A Lower Back Support Belt?

I am going over how to use my favorite support belt. I like it because it's easy to use, it does the job, and you can wear it under clothes. Most people will have and undershirt, wear it over that, and under your next shirt. When you have it off, you can roll it up really small so it's out of the way...
