Personal story:

For years before I became a Doctor of Chiropractic, I was concerned about the scallops around my tongue, I had learned that this may be a problem with absorption of  Vitamin B complex in my body. As I worked in a health food store, I had access to lots of different brands; some of them with mega dosages. None of the brands took away the scallops.

After chiropractic college, I attended a seminar by Metagenics and tried their Multi-Vitamin/Mineral; I took half of the recommended dosage and  in two weeks, the scallops were gone, never to return. Their formula was highly absorbable unlike previous products that I had tried.

Straw Men on Parade: When Research Findings Get Misrepresented

The simplest way to explain a straw man argument is that it is a fallacy based upon the misrepresentation of an opponent’s position.

It may oversimplify the opponent’s position or quote it out of context, stacking the deck so one’s argument may run over the opponent with the crushing totality of a Panzer tank division. In its worst incarnation, the straw man misrepresentation is deliberate and only the weakest target is chosen- that target is then held to represent the totality of the opponet’s being.

What is obvious and disturbing is that straw men are not just marketing ploys that we’ve become jaded to seeing in television commercials; they are found even in the highest echelons of peer-reviewed journals in medical literature. Straw men seem to have been particularly dominant in publications critical of alternative medical approaches, even appearing in at least one instance in a pharmaceutical company’s attempt to denigrate another company

Neurological Disorganization – AKA Switching – A Problem Dealt With Applied Kinesiology

Do you have trouble following directions? Overly clumsy? Suffer from quick temper or mood changes, or have learning difficulties. Then you may be “switched” or have a problem with neurological organization which can be fixed with Applied Kinesiology.

What is switching?

Basically the nervous system has two functions: to receive information and to transmit information. Switching seems to be due to a functional error in information processing.

Improper transmission from sensory receptors (information from outside to brain) causes the Central Nervous System(our brain and spinal cord) to create inappropriate strengthening and weakening of the muscles and formation of incorrect neural patterns and responses.

Neurological disorganization or switching essentially is the body’s response to a stimulus overload – Physical, Psychological or Nutritional / Chemical.

How would you know if you were “switched.”

Do you have one or more of these symptoms?

a) You have trouble following directions: for example, a massage person asks you to lie face up and you go face down.

b) Complaints of brain fog, reading difficulties, falling asleep, learning disabilities, mood changes, confusion, emotional fragility or quick temper or jet lag that just will not go away no matter what you do.

c) You may have been diagnosed with ADD or ADHD

d) Uncoordinated or clumsy movement or walking, for example, you are constantly tripping over the crack in the sidewalk that is not there.

e) You have problems w/ balance or you have cranial faults or thyroid problems that recur.

f) You have problems raising your left shoulder but the pain is in your right shoulder.

What could have caused the “switching.”

a) Your parents encouraged you as an infant to walk before you had efficient bilateral function as in cross crawling on the floor.

b) You are constantly on exercise machines that do not repeat the natural cross pattern of the body that is when left leg goes forward, the rt. arm moves forward, etc.

c) You do (or have done in the past) a lot of recreational drugs.

d) You may have eaten food additives or any noxious stimuli, refined sugars, or experienced environmental or chemical toxicity.

e) You may have nutrition deficiencies: Vitamin A, iron, folic acid, copper, choline, RNA, water.

What you can do to correct it:

a) Reducing the stressors such as recreational drugs or food additives for example will often self-correct the disorganization pattern.

b) On occasion, it needs to be addressed directly correction of Acupressure-pts – K27, GV 27, CV 24 or checking for Ocular Locking – diminished eye coordination or correcting the Cranial respiratory mechanism This is done by an Applied Kinesiologist.

c) You can correct the nutritional deficiency.

d) Do exercises such as cross crawl, balance board, cross country machines, certain martial arts movements that repeat the natural cross pattern of the body that is when left leg goes forward, the rt. arm moves forward, etc.
