Add Accountability to Your New Year’s Resolutions

Add Accountability to Your New Year’s Resolutions

The common social activity when January 1 rolls around is the feeling of “new hope” or the ability to “start again” with a new resolve. We give certain issues a higher priority, even make the proverbial new year’s resolution or commitment. This a healthy human trait, one that says: “Today s the first day of the rest of my life!” In all matters of life where we succeed there is always a driving force I call FOCUS. That is a topic of an earlier blog I suggest you also read today.

The present word of wisdom I wish to share with our readers / followers is: ACCOUNTABILITY. Websters defines accountability (pananagutan) as “the quality or state of being accountable; especially : an obligation or willingness to accept responsibility or to account for one’s actions.”

Chiropractic and Gastritis, natural options

Chiropractic and Gastritis, natural options

Early college year exam stress has Christian Welling doubling over with stomach pains. The doctors say he has gastritis. Why is it that when people undergo stress that some people get stomach problems like gastritis or GERD, while others get headaches or others experience diarrhea or still something else? Since 1895 Chiropractic has understood that these problems may be tied to nerve interferences that result from spinal misalignments, called Vertebral Subluxations.

As we look at the chart of the Autonomic Nervous System it illustrates the pathways for the Sympathetic (yellow)  and Parasympathetic (blue) nerve groupings. Continue reading

What are natural solutions for a Lipoma?

What are natural solutions for a Lipoma?

lipomaEver feel a lump under the skin and worried if it was cancer or a tumor? Well that is exactly what Paul Welling had feared. Having undergone years of perfectly normal annual check ups, Paul was told he had a small lump growing on his back. Alarmed he underwent some checks and was relieved to hear that there were no signs of cancer and this it was just a lipoma.

So what was this lump? It turned out to be a lipoma, a fatty tumor. That sounds ominous when the term tumor is used by a doctor. The truth is there are three type of tumors, the cancerous types, even worst are the metastatic types; and then there are the benign ones. Fortunately the lipoma is the latter, a benign growth. So what is a lipoma? Continue reading

President Duterte’s Neck Problem

President Duterte’s Neck Problem

President Duterte is frequently seen on TV being interviewed or making speeches and he has what may seem to some as a nervous tic on the right side of his neck. Looking at this interview photo we see, as we see so many times, how he props up the right side of his head.

pres-duterte-neck As a spinal expert I see that as a sign of cervical instability. Chiropractors learn a lot about body biomechanics, biochemistry, physiology above most other physicians in order to perform our duty as holistic, naturalistic and vitalistic doctors in the care of our patients. One such focus is body positioning.

I propose that one day President Duterte will undergo a full and proper chiropractic evaluaton, and once the underlying neck problem is identified, we may look for this physical behavior to improve and for the President to have a healthy neck again. Continue reading

Fat Vs. Thin Imagery Worth Seeing

Fat Vs. Thin imagery worth seeing

fat-mriAs America is about to celebrate its annual Thanksgiving Holiday this month and as there are 101 reasons to retouch this topic, people really need to confront the reality that being fat is not good for your health. Governments are stepping up the aversion factors in cigarette labelling requiring pictures of lung cancer to be displayed on the outer packaging of cigarette boxes. Imagine if we really looked the same economic and disease reality of obesity, as we do tobacco, what would the food labels of tomorrow look like? An interesting thought. Continue reading

Leg pain and the Piriformis Syndrome

Leg pain and the Piriformis Syndrome

Slipped disks, pinched nerves and misaligned vertebra or twisted pelvis are commonly associated with leg pain. The one cause that is often overlooked is the Piriformis Syndrome.

Often, when a patient presents themselves to a doctor with this kind of leg pain the examination is limited to the lumbar spine. Big mistake! The pelvis is frequently involved either directly or indirectly as a complicating factor in leg pain conditions; and this includes the piriformis muscle. Continue reading

Mabuhay Chiropractic Angels

Chiropractic Angels

On the anniversary of the Tetrault’s 10th year in the Philippines, noted by Mabuhay Chiropractic Clinics opening the doors of its 6th branch at the Mall Of Asia (MOA) on Nov 1st, one of our chiropractic angels dropped by to give us a cheer and encouragement.
That was Belle!

That made me think about the fact that we have several chiropractic angels like Belle. There are our longstanding CAs like Bernalin, Judy, Gemma and coming behind is Wheng. Also on that list are docMIKE’s former Executive Assistants Sixteen Ramos and Princess Lagman; and we can’t mention Princess without adding Gerwin Nables. Last but not least, to make the list of 10 complete, there is the first angel Mme. Apple and starter of all, docMIKE. Continue reading

Harvard Anti-aging Study says 150 years

 Harvard anti-aging study says 150 years now

anti-agingA recent release on anti aging refers to the Harvard Anti-Aging Study on longevity claims that people can live until they are 150 years of age. Earlier claims at longevity stopped at 120 but since there are people in recent history that have lived beyond this, the boundary is being pushed further.

Yes, there are lots of people talking about longevity, but mostly they are selling or promoting one product or the other. Chiropractic as a profession has long been a proponent of longevity, and not because of any technique or product to promote. Chiropractic works with the underlying causes of health, the empowerment to achieve a lofty goal of 100 years and more. Continue reading

Guard and Guide Yourself to Health

Guard and Guide Yourself to Health

Yes2Starting the blog with this famous quote we can begin to understand the title itself:  “My problems are the result of doing too many of the WRONG things and not enough of the RIGHT things.” GUARD your health by avoiding all the wrong things and GUIDE your health by doing all the right things.”

Last week we discussed re-framing how we view symptoms and that not all symptoms are necessarily bad and not having any symptoms does not mean we are healthy either. This is asking people to rethink many things they thought they got right about life and health but actually have enough of a misunderstanding that it impacts their present and future health. Re-thinking is a good thing when we see it that way! Continue reading
