IN THE NEWS:. (IN MEMORY OF ROBIN WILLIAMS) Why do people who abuse drugs have a higher suicide rate? Abusing drugs recreationally not only leads to addiction but alters the way people think, feel, and behave by disrupting neurotransmission. Over the past few decades, studies have established that drug dependency and addiction are features of an organic brain disease caused by drugs accumulative impact on neurotransmitters. As you alter neurotransmitters you’re setting yourself up for increased levels of depression and other delusional thinking.

WELLNESS: Earthing may actually be one of the best-kept secrets for preventing blood clots—it’s an old practice gaining a new appreciation! In the simplest terms, Earthing (or grounding your body to the earth) is what occurs when you walk barefoot on bare soil, grass, sand, brick, etc. Free electrons are transferred from the earth into your body through your feet, and these electrons are some of the most potent antioxidants known to man. One of the most important discoveries about Earthing is that it makes your blood less viscous, which has profound implications for your cardiovascular health because virtually every aspect of cardiovascular disease has been correlated with elevated blood viscosity. Earthing is so effective at achieving a blood thinning effect that anyone take prescription anticoagulants like Coumadin need to lower their dosage if they start to implement Earthing.

Tulsa Chiropractor, pain, natural health care.CONDITION OF THE WEEK: ADHD Helped With Chiropractic, A Case Study The case was of a 5 year old boy who had been diagnosed with ADHD at age 2. The childs pediatrician prescribed methylphenidate (Ritalin), Adderall, and Haldol for the next 3 years. The combination of drugs was unsuccessful in helping the child. At age 5 the child was brought to a chiropractor to see if chiropractic care would help. The chiropractic examination and x-rays showed noticeable spinal distortion including a reversal of the normal neck curve indicative of subluxations. Chiropractic care was begun and the childs progress was monitored. According to his mother, positive changes in her son’s general behavior were noticed. The medical doctor reviewed and examined the child and based on that assessment and his clinical experience, the MD felt that the young boy was no longer exhibiting symptoms associated with ADHD. He then took the boy off the medications that he had been taking for 3 years.

Tulsa Chiropractor, pain, natural health care.IN THE NEWS: Friends have more DNA in common than strangers People may unsuspectingly choose friends who have some DNA sequences in common with them, a new analysis finds. Researchers compared gene variations between nearly 2,000 people who were not biologically related, and found that friends had more gene variations in common than strangers. The study lends a possible scientific backing for the well-worn clichs, “We’re just like family,” or “Friends are the family you choose,” the researchers said.

FUNNY BONE: AFTERLIFE after dying in a car crash, three friends go to Heaven for orientation. They are all asked the same question, “When you’re lying in your casket, and friends and family are mourning over you, what would you like to hear them say about you?” The first guy immediately responds, “I would like to hear them say that I was one of the great doctors of my time, and a great family man.” The second guy says, “I would like to hear that I was a wonderful husband and school teacher who made a huge difference in the children of tomorrow.” The last guy thinks for a moment, and then replies, “I guess I’d like to hear them say, ‘ Look, he’s moving!'”
