I have first-hand experience with this as I was addicted to sugar and baked goods for the first half of my life. Sugars, simple carbohydrates and wheat feed the yeast and it gets overblown in the body. I was raised to be this way by my family as many of us have been. I’ve only been holistic for the last twenty years so I was out of alignment for thirty-four years. Food habits are taught and modeled. In my family, […]
What are the stages of the Inflammatory reaction? The inflammatory reaction is the combination of a number of overlapping reactions within the body. Although a lot of these occur simultaneously a certain order of events may be seen: 1. Tissue Injury Tissue damage may occur from trauma such as a tackle, collision or from an awkward fall. However, quite commonly tissue injury is as a result of overuse, commonly known as microtrauma. 2. Release of Chemicals When tissue cells become […]
The level of education. Professional Manual Therapists are trained in either Naprapathic, Osteopathic, Physical Therapy or Sports Therapy tradition. I am trained to be a Naprapathic Doctor but it is only licensed in two or three states in the U.S. so I and my peers in Michigan are left to linger under a medical massage license given to massage therapists who have only 500 hours of training.

Mixing botanical oils is one of my favorite leisurely things to do. I go into underdrive with my intuition and “sense” about botanicals and meander in my rare lalaland. We learned all of the chemical constituents of them as well in my Master Herbalist class, but frankly, your nose can group botanicals in affinity. I use different ones all the time in my practice. You can get the singles online or at any of the Harvest Health Stores in the area. […]
I want to make something perfectly clear from an anatomical, factual basis. The first line of treatment in musculoskeletal trauma and disorder is THE SOFT TISSUE. The soft tissue is muscle, ligament, tendon, and nerve. What feeds all of your plethora of soft tissue is the blood. Moving the blood with your skin INTACT, not cut, is ideal. There is no front line of treatment that is appropriate for the bones. NONE! It makes no sense whatsoever to treat the bones […]
Of course, it’s possible to have a flexible spine. Take a look; And there are ten more pictures of her doing various yoga poses on this site. Yoga Poses Showing Spine Flexibility I’m bringing this up because I’m trying to bring patients in who have functional scoliosis.
