Can Adjustments Make Birth Easier?


A neat study recently landed on my desk.  The findings are that when a woman gets adjusted, she gains greater control of her pelvic muscles and these muscles tend to relax more when resting.

These are the exact muscles Moms use to push a baby out and the get stretched to let the baby out.  The researchers concluded that the logical outcome would be as easy and trouble free a birth process as possible.  For mom and baby.

Astroturf

How bad is the media being used to manipulate you?  Really bad, that's how bad.

Here is a couple of examples that are just mind blowing.

First, what is astroturf?  Watch this Ted Talk.  It is illuminating.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-bYAQ-ZZtEU&feature=youtu.be


Now, remember the hype about how everyone should be taking Statins?  Statins are the cholesterol lowering drugs that I have told you are bad for you for years, showing you study after study.  But there is this organized campaign to make them universal.  Crazy talk.  Astroturf!

Check out this article just published:

They don't prevent heart disease, they cause it!

Now watch; consider all the recent hysteria about measles.  A few cases, no one seriously ill, what used to be a normal part of childhood.  All this media frenzy has the hallmark of astroturf.

Now you know how someone, with something to sell you is trying to influence you.

If it sounds like hype, walks like hype... it is hype.  Crazy world.

Low Back Pain Bugging You?

Low back pain...  Many have it, few know what to do about it.  Here is what the latest scientific info says about it.

Click link below- 2 minutes review.

Executive summary:  If low back pain occurs, it will reoccur sooner or later.  Only chiropractic care is proven long term management strategy yielding massive improvement but maintenance is necessary to sustain gains.
