Releasing Chronic Pain to Find Relief… 6 Ways That Work

    After attending a medical conference about cutting edge treatments for pain and pain management breakthroughs, I was shocked to hear how very little we can actually do to help treat chronic pain. Even the most advanced pain medicine specialists in the country stated that we can only treat about 30% of chronic pain, and that if patients feel their pain has lessened by about 30%, even with the most advanced surgical options and strongest pain relief prescriptions that we have… that is considered a total success. We were told that we should tell our patients that the left …

Trying It Out For You: Compression Therapy

  Therapeutic compression treatments have been around forever to help treat cardiovascular issues and lymphatic issues in the body… …but until now I have only seen them used in hospital settings.     There is a new trend that offers compression therapy in a spa setting, where you can sit for a 30 or 60 minute period of time, wearing a garment that inflates (similar to a large blood pressure cuff) on and off, forcing blood and lymphatic fluids up the limbs. It’s called intermittent pneumatic compression (IPC) and it’s something I’m familiar with because we put these exact same …

What if the ground outside your home is littered, hazardous, sprayed with chemicals and pesticides, full of fire ant mounds or rocks or broken glass? What if you have mobility issues, what if you can’t stand or walk, what if you are recovering from a major illness and the thought of going barefoot is so overwhelming you’d rather not ground at all?

Trying It Out For You: A Salt Cave (aka Halotherapy)

  Halotherapy is simply the inhalation of aerosolized dry salts… …which is quickly becoming a very popular new therapy added to many spas.   These salt therapy lounges can be very beautiful, with gorgeous Himalayan salt wall features and flowing loose salt over the floors to give the appearance of a salt cave, while plain old sodium chloride crystals (table salt, basically) are aerosolized into the room’s air for inhalation. These spas claim that halotherapy can improve respiratory allergies, fix chronic dermatologic skin issues like atopic dermatitis and psoriasis, and even decrease the frequency of upper respiratory infections.   But …

The Healing Power Of Grounded Touch

  I recently received an awesome question from a reader. It was: “If a very sick person is lacking in the earth’s electrons, can they unknowingly ‘steal’ those electrons from another person by touching them?”   The short answer to this is: yes.   When you were a kid, did you ever walk around in your socks, rubbing them on a carpet repeatedly so you could sneak up to your sibling and shock them? (Or was that just me, LOL?). If you’ve ever shocked someone when touching them, you know this on a large scale — with a large quantity …
