Back on Track and Feeling Great Again

I looked at the websites for various Sacramento chiropractors, knowing that I would recognize the one that I was meant to go to as soon as I saw it. That is exactly what happened too. When I saw the website for Barham Chiropractic, I knew that they were the ones I wanted to go to. I had looked at the team members first on their bio pages, and I really liked everything I read. I liked that I could see what they looked like too, and everyone seemed not only well qualified but extremely friendly too.

I did not decide to go with them just because everyone had a friendly smile and a good education though. I wanted to see what services they offer to patients, and it was seeing that they hydro massage therapy that decided it for me. Continue reading

I Spent the Weekend Hiking

It was a great trip really. We did all sorts of things, in particular we went tubing on this ice cold river and hiking in the Sierra Nevada mountains. At any rate I have been dating this girl for about three months and she is crazy about hiking and she loves to take photographs. We spent a lot of time in a position where we overlooked a place that wildlife would use to drink. I think that sleeping on the ground led me to the Petaluma chiropractors the next week. It did not bother me too much when I got up in the morning, like a lot of time I had some problems getting up and getting the kinks out of my back. However when I got home there was the same issue, when I tried to get up out of the bed in the morning it was a real problem. I was so stiff that it took about fifteen minutes before I could put on my clothes.

It took some work before I found the guy that I thought that I could trust. Continue reading

I Feel Better Now Than I Have in Years

I knew that I was going to need to see a Sacramento chiropractor because of something stupid I did not long ago. I have never been one to back down from a dare, but they usually don’t hurt me as much as this last one did. My grandson was over visiting at my house, and he dared me to ride his skateboard down the road. That seemed simple enough, so I did. Well, it was easy until I decided that it was too easy. I wanted to show off a bit, so I decided to jump the curb with the skateboard, and I fell right on my back.

I know that I am lucky that I did not hit my head, but my wife still insists that i probably did, perhaps even before this crazy stunt went wrong. Continue reading

Making a Team and a Partnership

Jim and Gloria are charter members of the Master Keglers Association bowling league.  Indeed, that was how they’d met; Jim joined the league simply because he had grown tired of watching programs like “Extreme Sports” and felt he was wasting away sitting around evenings in his one-bedroom condo.  So he started bowling and joined the league to get some regular exercise.  That was where he’d met Gloria and tried to teach her the finer points of the game.  Gloria, who’d been on bowling teams in college, allowed Jim to “teach” her, even when she knew he was 100% wrong.  He only learned she knew more about the sport than him when he wandered into a practice meet one day unexpectedly and saw her roll five strikes in a row.

 

But he never held it against her.  After all, hadn’t he set her up with the folks at Lumber Liquidators?  When he did her home floors he’d obtained top quality materials and supplies at rock bottom prices by using a Groupon coupon, thereby reducing the cost of beautiful solid hardwood flooring by nearly 50%.  Now Gloria’s floors looked even better than the alleyways they competed on every week.  Jim had installed the flooring for Gloria and she was eternally grateful.  She told him the new flooring had increased both the appearance and the value of her home.  But she wasn’t grateful enough to let his team win when he was her opponent.  He would force a smile while frowning to himself.  Jim finally started practicing at another alley across town.  Of course, he didn’t know Gloria’s son managed that place.  Nor did he know Gloria was aware of his efforts.

 

Gloria’s son finally blew the whistle.  He knew his mother had her eye on Jim from the start; she’d just been using the bowling competition to keep Jim’s attention.  Gloria’s son gave his mom an unusual Mother’s Day present; he booked her and Jim in a bowling tournament in Las Vegas for Mother’s Day weekend.  Jim wasn’t informed until his manager said he was getting that week off.  His friends at Lumber Liquidators made the travel arrangements using a Groupon coupon so the entire weekend was set aside for Jim and Gloria to enjoy.  That trip and tournament was how two weekly competitors became everyday home teammates.

Who Should Eat Organic Food

Who_Should_Eat_Organic_Food

Why would you ask “Who should eat organic food?”

As much as I would like to dismiss this as a silly question, there are lots of people asking this question.

Not to mention, we are told over and over again that there is no such thing as a silly question.

EVERYONE should eat organic food.

It is actually quite sad that there is even such a thing as food that is not organic.  Over the course of millions of years our planet has allowed the most beneficial things to grow, and the least healthy things to die off. Yet modern scientists, chemists, and corporations think that they can create better things with a limited amount of time and knowledge.

Anyone who wants to live the best life that they can live is who should eat organic food.

Organic Food vs Conventional Food

Organic Food, by the broadest definition is food that is grown in the ground and has become a food source through natural selection.

It is food that tastes good and has the most beneficial amounts of the nutrients that are the building blocks of our bodies.

Conventional Food these days are genetically engineered, either in a laboratory, or though selective breeding programs to create food that is more resilient to current farming techniques and shipping practices.

Organic food vs conventional food gives us unnatural products that have been created to last longer and be tougher compared to foods that nature created over time that break down easily and are more easily absorbed by our bodies.

It is a sad state of affairs that many people will feed their pets purely organic food, and yet think very little of shopping the middle aisles of their grocery stores, where there is little that is organic, for themselves.

Many want to give up the argument that organic food is more expensive than processed foods. Yet, if you really look at what you are getting, this is not truly the case.

Sure, foods that are labeled as organic, which by current definition means that it is not grown with harmful pesticides, cost more per pound. But in reality, the people who should eat organic food are the ones that have eaten so much processed, pesticide laden junk that they are paying through the nose to take in other dangerous chemicals in an attempt to mask the symptoms of what doing this to their bodies has caused.

Who should eat organic food, other than those that want to fill their bodies with toxins that have been added to the food to kill off pests, and want to eat more of it in order to get the nutrients that they need while filling themselves with things that they don’t.

The body is an incredible mechanism for harvesting energy and the building blocks to repair and enhance itself. But only if you give it the things that it needs to do the job that it has evolved to do, over thousands of generations.

Anything Can Happen when You Have a Hobby That Involves Horseback Riding

My city has long been an area that is home to many horse lovers. It is even common to see riders taking their horses out on the long canals, asway from city traffic for a nice ride. My horse and I have a great relationship, but one day we can across a snake that spooked my horse. I was thrown off and landed in the dirt. It really affected my back, so I went to see a Phoenix chiropractor a few months later. I took too long to go see him because I was being naive about my situation.

My parents were the original equine lovers in our family. They both grew up on separate farms, so when they got together and married, they both made sure to buy enough land to have quite a number of horses. Continue reading

My Poor Posture Caused Severe Back Problems

My neck has been giving me problems for years. Doctor’s have told me that it is likely caused by problems in my shoulder muscles. It has lead to awful posture. I do not have a hump in my back, but it looks like I do. You can especially see it when I walk. It hurts pretty much all of the time, and I had given up on being able to pull myself straight up to regain proper posture. My neck x-ray makes me look like a bird with how my cervical spine goes. I went to a chiropractor in Redding to get help with nerve impingement issues in that area that are a result of my long term poor posture.

The muscles in my back look odd. Continue reading

Chiropractor in Orland Park IL Provides Lifelong Wellness

I had lived in Chicago most of my life, but when a job opportunity a bit south of the city arose, I couldn’t pass it up. For months I continued to drive into the city to see my hair stylist, go shopping and see my doctor and dentist, but the drive and traffic were taking a toll on me and my car. Locating a chiropractor in Orland Park IL became increasingly more important as my old chiropractor in Chicago didn’t offer hours late enough to accommodate my work hours and drive into the city, most especially when winter roads would soon become treacherous.

I had been seeing a chiropractor as part of my wellness regimen for many years. Keeping my spine aligned was a priority as I had suffered with Scoliosis as a teen and knew I needed to be vigilant about my back and posture for the rest of my life. Chiropractic care had become much more than simply preventative maintenance for me. My chiropractor was aware of little changes over the years and helped me cope with daily stresses and strains.

Went to Three Auctions This Morning

Of course this is something I started doing because the guy I used to work for was able to make pretty good money at it. I get the heads up on them from various sources, obviously if you are going to have an auction then you want to publicize it. A Sacramento bankruptcy lawyer sent me a notice for the best one today. He is looking to get the best deal that he can for the client that he is representing, which means that he wants to be able to get the best price possible when they start selling off assets. The trick is to know what is going to sell and what is going to sell at a decent profit. Obviously I am looking for stuff that I can buy low and then sell high, or at least sell at a somewhat higher price. I try to think of the time invested as a hobby. Continue reading
