How To Discover Your Play Style, And Use It To Improve Your Health

          Play is not only a relief and a respite from the seriousness that stress, illness and trauma bring to our lives, it is actually therapy.   Play time is therapeutic time, point blank.  Child psychologists use this healing tool often, because play is a child’s way to express and release any inner turmoil or fears that the child doesn’t even consciously know they have.   But it isn’t only therapeutic for children, it’s therapeutic for adults too. In fact, I would argue that engaging in some form of play daily is one of the best things you can do to safeguard …

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 …

10 Ways Grounding Can Directly Support Your Health During This Pandemic

  I’ve gotten lots of emails asking if grounding is a good idea as a way to boost health during this pandemic. The medical literature suggests the answer to this is a resounding “Yes!” for many reasons, probably more than you think. As you might know, most patients who suffer serious illness during Covid19 infection do so because of the body’s inflammatory response (the often referred to “cytokine storm” in the lung adds to this), subsequent hypoxia from lung inflammation, and hypercoagulation of the blood, leading to blood clots. These three reactions the body creates as a response to coronavirus …

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 …
