IDD (Internal Disc Decompression) TherapyTM|
As we reported in our last newsletter, clinical studies have documented an 86% improvement rate for IDD TherapyTM in relieving the pain from ruptured intervertebral discs. It can help with herniated or bulging discs, degenerative disc disease (thinned and/or collapsed discs), posterior facet syndrome, sciatica (pain down your legs that is coming from pressure on your sciatic nerve), acute or chronic neck or back pain, neck or back problems that do not seem to respond to anything else, failed neck or back surgery, and most any other type of neck or back pain, especially if it includes arm or leg pain.
The treatment protocol was developed by a team of neurologists, chiropractors, orthopedists, and neurosurgeons to rehabilitate and heal damaged structures in the spine. A significant part of this medical program uses a patented, orthopedic, decompression machine called the Spina System IDDTM to promote self-healing of your spine. This machine allows targeting of specific levels of your spine.
You heard all about this therapy program in our last newsletter. If you missed it or would like another copy, please let us know and we'll make sure to get one to you. You can, of course, always take a look at any of my newsletters at my web site TheNaturalHealthPlace.com
Several patients have asked if this type of therapy can help their neck or back problems even if they are not so severe that they require immediate surgery. The answer is definitely yes. The results, however, may not be as demonstrable as when you are seeing and feeling the relief from immediate, severe pressure on nerves and other acutely inflamed tissues.
Kettlebells are one of the most inexpensive and effective pieces of exercise equipment ever created. They come in various weights ranging from 9 to 18, 26, 35, 53, 70, 88 and 104 pounds. They were developed in Russia and have been used for everything from general exercise to training Olympic athletes and even their special forces.
Kettlebells are round iron balls with an attached handle. Once you have learned to properly use them, you can do a five to ten minute workout and feel and see the benefits of thirty to sixty minutes of exercise. This sounds like, and is, an effective way for any busy Mom or Dad to get the daily exercise they need. And, do not overlook
the potential benefits of proven strength building for young athletes.|

Some time ago I mentioned in one of my newsletters that you could get the majority of what you needed nutritionally from your foods. The only problem was that you had to select only fresh, organically raised meats and vegetables. That is almost impossible for most of us to do most of the time.
The next best option is to supplement your diet with quality nutrients that can make up the difference for what you do not get in your diet. Most nutritional supplements are made with inferior ingredients to optimize profit potentials. And, if they are in tablet form, they can be very difficult, if not impossible, to be broken down and available to your body.
Of all of the supplements that are available today, I only recommend a few on a regular basis. We all need digestive enzymes, especially as we add years. The best digestive enzyme formulas are made by a company in Wisconsin called Enzyme Formulations. These extremely effective products can only be found in doctor's offices. We have them. If you would like to know more about digestive enzymes and which ones would work best for you, let us know.
