HERE'S TO YOUR HEALTH: DAVES STORY PART IV

Details

This weeks HTYH is a continuation of Dave's story: My counselor asked me, "David where are you right now?"

"I'm sitting in a treatment center," I answered, "Because I tried to kill myself."

"Where's your mother right now?" she asked.

"She's probably at the farm watching soap operas or, a game show and visiting with her friends," I said.

"David, it seems to me your mother's life is going pretty good but yours isn't. You look down your nose at her because she's not educated and you're...

A HEALTTHY DAY: THE NEXT TEN YEARS

THE NEXT TEN YEARS

What does the future hold in store? None of us can know with certainty, although some predictions are possible. Stock market indexes will rise. Then they'll fall. Then everyone will hope that the indexes will rise again. Hemlines will fall. Then they'll rise. Then in two or three years they'll fall again.

The French have a saying for all this - plus ça change, plus c'est la même chose. The more things change, the more they stay the same. In fact, things have changed a lot...

HERE'S TO YOUR HEALTH: DAVES STORY PART III

Details

This week's HTYH is a continuation of Dave's story: We lived on a farm outside of Raleigh, North Carolina. We raised pigs and chickens and the feed came in large white cloth bags with strawberries, flowers, and green stems printed on them.

They didn't look manly to us and although it took lot of work to make them--we never appreciated them. I scoffed at them and called them pig-feed...

Not too many people would agree that "oh, yeah, my work is relaxing". For most of us, work involves plenty of stress. If we're in customer service, there's always a seemingly never-ending stream of customers with an abundance of problems that need to be handled yesterday.

If we work for ourselves, there's the ongoing stress of...

HERE'S TO YOUR HEALTH: DAVES STORY PART II

Details

This week's HTYH is a continuation of Dave's story: I suffered from a hundred forms of fear, fear of being less than others, fear of financial insecurity, fear of what my peers thought, fear of the police, fear of the IRS, fear of my wife's lawyer, fear that I wouldn't be invited back, fear of my boss. I'd be in my office and my boss would walk by and I'd asked him, "How are you, Don?" He ignored me so, I asked him again and when he didn't answer the second time my mind went to work: I'll bet...

A HEALTHY DAY: TRIGGER POINTS & PAIN

Details DR. JAMES NILL

Trigger points are persistent, localized muscle spasms that can cause a great deal of pain.1,2,3 Trigger points alone may be responsible for many cases of neck pain, upper back pain, and lower back pain. This relationship is fairly common knowledge among physicians who treat pain, including chiropractors, rheumatologists, and physiatrists (doctors of physical medicine).

What is not generally known is that trigger points may also be implicated in radiating pain into the arm and hand or...
