Here’s something you do NOT want to put in your body!

November 28, 2010

I STRONGLY encourage people to not eat genetically modified foods. Do I have data I can point to that proves genetically modified foods are harmful to human health? Not yet. But the anecdotal stories are piling up. Read this link, this is important. I’m especially interested in what vets are seeing with animals, especially what happens when they switch them back to a non GMO diet.

Folks, eat real food. GMO-based food is NOT real food. It’s scary stuff that is designed not to improve human health but to improve Monsanto’s profits. Don’t be fooled.

These were veterinarians and farmers who had taken
livestock—pigs and cows—off of GMO feed. What do you suppose
happened? Death rates dropped, still born rates were down,
litter size was up, and overall health improved. One farmer
was ecstatic about the huge increase in milk production in
his herd; another described how healthy his pigs looked—even
down to reduced blood shot eyes.

The vets I spoke with had all been in practice long before
1996, when GMOs were introduced. Each had his stories about
the surge in diseases and disorders after GM feed came on
the scene. One told me that the jump in dog and cat
allergies correlated exactly with the introduction of GM pet
food. Whenever he switched his allergic animals to an
organic (non-GMO) brand, their symptoms such as itching
would usually disappear. Others described inflammation,
infections, and gastrointestinal disorders.

Both vets and farmers saw differences inside GM-fed animals
during autopsies or butchering, including liver damage,
stomach ulcers, discoloration, and an awful stench. One
farmer said that after seeing the alterations inside GM-fed
animals, he and his wife started a strict non-GMO policy for
their family’s meat.

Testimonial from a rock climber

November 24, 2010

First, our clinic would like to wish all of you a happy and healthy Thanksgiving holiday. While we live in “interesting time” with much uncertainty and turbulence, we all still have MUCH to be grateful for. I encourage all of you, while you’re hustling and bustling for this holiday season, take a minute or two tomorrow to think about 5 things for which you are profoundly grateful. You’ll be amazed at how much better it makes you feel. And don’t forget to move!

Now, I recently sent an email out to some clients we hadn’t heard from in awhile, just checking in to see if all was well. One sent this message back, thought I’d share it with you folks. When he first came in he had shoulder pain bad enough that he wasn’t able to pursue his passion of rock climbing.


I still have two open slots with you guys and intend to use them as future “tune ups”. The reason you don’t see much of me is that you have done such good work! I’m still rock climbing twice a week and pain free. I think you guys are just amazing. It’s too bad more people don’t realize that nature works pretty well at healing things! We (as a culture) are so ingrained in prescribing pills, cutting things out or replacing them with Titanium. What a shame.

a message about the airport pat-downs

November 23, 2010

I know this topic of airport security screenings is all the rage right now, both figuratively and literally. I have strong feelings on this topic. Yes, I want our air travel to be secure but it’s difficult for me to believe that the only two options I have to ensure my safety are either being irradiated or fondled. I object to both options and view them as violations of my 4th amendment rights against unreasonable searches.

That said, the odds are increasing by the day that if one requires travel by air that they’ll come across these scanners and methods. I would encourage everyone to avoid the scanners. We simply do not have enough information to guarantee they are safe. Period. And anyone who tells you they do is lying. Now, neither do we have conclusive information that they are a health hazard. They COULD be perfectly safe. But that is not a gamble I’m willing to take with the data currently available.

With respect to the pat downs, I haven’t had the indignity of experiencing one of these yet and am not looking forward to the experience. But I’m old enough and somewhat mature enough to put the experience into context.

But what about children?

Here’s a very interesting commentary from a news service I subscribe to. The guy who runs it interviewed someone who has experience working with traumatized children and I think you’ll find his perspective on these pat downs to be illuminating.



No video this time…just a very important

Please read and if you agree with me that it’s
important, please share.



=== It’s sick – plain and simple ===

There’s been little discussion about the
euphemstically-named full-body “pat downs” taking
place in US airports as they effect CHILDREN.

We’ve put up numerous videos now of very young children
being stripped searched in public, touched against their
will, and, in any other place and under any other
circumstances, molested by TSA screeners.

Parents are counseled to tell their children that
these “screenings” are a game.

The US news media’s comment on this?

Deafening silence.

Instead they ask us if we aren’t being “too sensitive”
and tell us there needs to be a “balance between
security and privacy.”

Children are being taught that anyone in uniform
has free access to their bodies…that they can’t
say “no”…and that their parents are unable to protect

In turn, parents are being taught that they
cannot protect their children.

The only word that comes to my mind to describe
this enterprise is “criminal.”

Did not the TSA, Homeland Security, and the White
House (and the jackals in Congress that fund this
insanity) anticipate this as an outcome?

There are two possibilities here: either this is
official idiocy and arrogance of the highest order
or this outcome was anticipated and deemed acceptable.

I don’t know the answer…but I do know that as a
government agency that works closely with the CIA
and FBI, Homeland Security and the TSA have access
to hundreds of psychologists and psychiatrists,
in their employ, under contract, and available
at the drop of a dime.

I am not an expert in child abuse so I asked my
friend and colleague Kenneth Wooden for his comment.

Wooden is a former journalist and author of the
chilling and important book “The Children of Jonestown.”

His experience covering the Jonestown story and seeing
the hundreds of children’s coffins that came back from
Guyana motivated him to create a training company that
teaches children how to identify and protect themselves
from predators.

I asked him what he thinks of the TSA’s policy of
commanding its employees to strip search and conduct
full body “pat downs” of small children.

I specifically asked him his opinion of the TSA
advising that young children be told that these officially
sanctioned intrusions of their bodies are a game.

Wooden’s answer follows…

=== The TSA has crossed the line ===

As a national child personal safety expert, I submit the TSA
crosses the line when it allows the patting down of children for
security reasons, cloaked as a game.

The most recent Gallup Poll on childhood abuse revealed that in just one
year, more than a million children were sexually and physically abused.
Along the same lines, the American Medical Association has referred to the
rape and sexual exploitation of women and children as a “violent and silent
epidemic.” Men increasingly reveal how they were sexually assaulted in
their youth, by a rainbow of sexual predators, usually someone they knew.

Given that background – and the number of survivors that have been sexually
abused and exploited – it is beyond comprehension how the Homeland Security
Agency’s TSA can conceive of such insensitive and invasive security checks
on our children and youth. Even worse, they want to depict pat downs of
children as a game! As an investigative researcher/reporter who has
interviewed well over a thousand sexual offenders, I can document that one
of the favorite ploys to lure children and youth into sexual abuse is to
disguise it as a “game.”

How can experts working at the TSA be so incredibly misinformed and
misguided to suggest that full body pat downs for children be portrayed as a
game?!To do so is completely contrary to what we in the sexual abuse
prevention field have been trying to accomplish for the past thirty years.
Such policy could essentially desensitize children to inappropriate touch
and ultimately make it easier for sexual offenders to prey on our children.
This policy is also incredibly insensitive to the countless victims who have
already been traumatized by unwanted touching in their lives and could be
re-traumatized by such pat-downs.

In my judgment as a lifelong journalist and child advocate, such unapprised
actions by the TSA borders on criminal negligence and, legally speaking,
“deliberate indifference to the future emotional well being of millions of
victims and the potential for far too many more young victims.”

=== What you can do ===

Please – if you think this information is important – share this
e-mail far and wide.

As far as I know, this issue is not being discussed
anywhere else in a public forum in America…not
in Congress, not in the news media, not in the White
House, and not in the self-justifying press conferences
of the TSA.

The TSA, and the entire US government White House and
Congress, has crossed the line here.

Think long and hard before you agree to allowing the
small children in your care to be subjected to these

Let the so-called public servants who conceived of and
imposed this system – and now unashamedly defend it –
know what you think.

Egoscue will help your golf swing!

November 18, 2010

We work with a lot of golfers and invariably they’re amazed at how much better they play as they bring their posture back into better balance. Posture is key to a solid, repeating golf swing. If you can’t get your spine into a reasonably neutral position, you have NO chance of maintaining a consistent spine angle through the rotary movement of the swing. And that means that your brain is going to sense that you’re in a slightly different position each time the clubface is about to make contact with the ball, and then it’s going to try to compensate by utilizing the smaller muscles in your hands and wrists and arms. Not good.

Here’s a nice video testimonial from someone who should know. He’s a chiropractor and he’s certified by TPI, the Titleist Performance Institute. Titleist is the manufacturer of the leading golf balls on tour as well as terrific clubs and other gear, and they established their performance institute to train other health professionals in how to learn more about the mechanics of the golf swing and how to better help golfers. A TPI certification means something and this gentleman has it. Listen to him talk about what Egoscue has meant for him and his clients. It’s less than a minute:

Please help us stop Senate bill S.510

November 16, 2010

Got a favor to ask of you guys, The Senate could vote as soon as tomorrow on S.510. This is a really scary bill that needs to be defeated. It’s one more step in the loss of our freedoms, and if passed, it’s a big one. It would give the Dept of Homeland Security authority over all agriculture. Have a backyard garden and you save seeds? You could face criminal charges. Have a backyard garden and sell your lettuce at the local farmer’s market? You could face criminal charges. And it goes on and on.

Here’s a link to read about the bill:

here’s a link where you can sign a petition that will be sent to your senators.

Please act now. If you wait until tomorrow, it could be too late.
