5 Most Common Posture Problems (and how to fix them) By Marc Perry / 11.28.11 / Medically Reviewed builtlean.com
“..While this article does not cover how to conduct a comprehensive posture assessment, I chose the 5 most common posture problems I see that are caused by a sedentary lifestyle. For each posture problem, I list the (1) identification, (2) cause, (3) problem, and (4) solution.

Keep in mind the solutions listed are only “possible” solutions because some of the causes and problems may not be correctable (i.e. congenital issues, or trauma). Finally, be aware that any posture problem can lead to other problems as the human body is one “kinetic chain”. ..”
7 very common posture issues, and how to correct them
Posted on November 18, 2014 b-reddy.org
“..It’s very often the person’s knee gets hit / gives out inwards. The knee likes to hinge. It likes to go forward and backward. It does not like to go side to side or rotate.

Hip pain

Femur general picture..

Because the femur is part of the knee

This posture has implications at the hip. When the knee is always rotating inward, it’s because the upper leg is turning in and the lower leg is turning out. Where does the upper leg start? Way up at the hip. While the hip can deal with rotational forces much better than the knee, too much rotation in one direction can piss it off as well.

Corrective Methods For Common Postural Deviations: The Anterior Pelvic Tilt July 7, 2006 by MindandMuscle Nutrition
woman lifting weight plateby: Marc McDougal mindandmuscle.net
‘..
Your chest position effects your pelvic position. The Thoracic Cage is roughly the area from your shoulders to the bottom of your ribs, and movement here causes a muscular chain reaction all the way down to your pelvis. According to a 2002 study in the European Spine Journal, researchers determined, “The findings of this study show that thoracic cage anterior/posterior translations cause significant changes in thoracic kyphosis (26 degrees ), lumbar curve, and pelvic tilt.” The stability of this area is governed by many muscles, including the internal/external obliques, the lats, the transversus abdominus, and the deep muscles on the spine called the multifidus. Tightness or instability of any of these can cause shifting of the Cage, which can then translate to a shift at the pelvis.
A pelvic tilt will most certainly cause the muscles of the lower limb to compensate. It’s not always easy to tell what caused what, but usually one will find an internally rotated femur accompanying a forward pelvic tilt. Simply put, this is when the knee starts to turn inward during standing, walking, squatting, etc.

Is one of your legs longer than the other? Do you feel like you’re constantly bearing more weight on one side? Well then it’s most likely do to a hip/pelvic elevation. And the good news is that it can be corrected. But first we have to identify it, know what causes it, and how it may interfere with your body’s own natural biomechanics. Well it just so happens that today’s video covers all that and more. So sit back – uh I mean stand up (cause it’s better for you) – and enjoy!

And like I promised in the video above here is the exercise routine that will help correct your hip/pelvic elevation…

Assisted Hip Lift (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PhH7NS…) – Hold for 1 min, then switch sides and repeat.

Cats & Dogs (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nQ3AxI…) – Do 10 repetitions.

Hooklying Gluteal Contractions (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NTyjNI…) – Do 3 sets. Each set consisting of 20 repetitions.

Hooklying Knee Pillow Squeezes (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MDUEFg…) – Do 3 sets. Each set consisting of 20 repetitions.

…if you have any questions or concerns along the way, please don’t hesitate to contact me. Oh and don’t forget, the first one to send me a messenger bird (hawk preferably) wins a free session 🙂

Understanding Your Spine: Cervical Lordosis Aug 25 2016
Posted in: Understanding Scoliosis clear-institute.org
“..What’s not normal (and when you start running into problems and pain) is a flattened neck that has lost its natural curvature, also called a “military neck.” The curve can straighten out (a condition called hypolordotic/alordotic) or even face in the wrong direction (which is known as a reverse curve or kyphotic).
What Causes Loss of Cervical Lordosis?

Loss of the healthy curve in your neck can be due to a combination of factors. Sometimes, it’s not one event in particular, but a combination of accidents or injuries and repetitive, prolonged actions, such as constantly looking down at a phone or computer. This repetitive posture puts strain on the body over time and can lead to issues with cervical lordosis. The risk is higher if there is pre-existing damage to the ligaments and discs caused by a fall, car crash, birth trauma, or other incidences..”

Tips To Help Prevention Of Lumbar Lordosis:

Keep your feet flat on the floor when sitting. Put a small wedge on your chair or adjust your chair to sit so that your knee should be slightly lower than your hip. Support your back lower curve because too much or too little of a curve can cause problems.
When standing, support your back by resting one leg higher on a step.
When standing, do not lock your knees straight.
Keep a flat pillow under your belly if you sleep on your stomach. Sleeping on your back is better with a pillow under your knees.
Do not wear high heel shoes, your posture will tend to fail. Always wear shoes that provide good support.
Maintain your buttock muscles and belly (abdominal) strong and firm.

Lower Back Pain from Lordosis? Easy exercise to fix
https://youtu.be/txb-U_yI_-A
“This addresses Lumbar Hyperlordosis leading to lower back pain. Lordosis is caused by too much anterior pelvic tilt in the hips making the lower back over extend or over arch. This put way too much stress on the lower spine and SI joint. It is an extremely unstable position to be in and will almost always lead to pain or injury. This simple exercise attempts to put the lower back into a more neutral position through different ranges of motion. This is a stretch that you can do as much as you want to restore flexion to your lower spine. Remember that your spine has not been moved in this position in a long time so you may possibly feel some discomfort at first. But don’t worry this uncomfortable position will soon feel better and better and will hopefully become more of a neutral position for you. Try this stretch and exercise to relieve the lower back pain caused by lordosis and anterior pelvic tilt…”

This should be present in the range of 20°-40°.[1], [8] Thoracic hyperkyphosis is a defect that is easy to see from the side, in a lateral point of view. This is detected when the flexion curve of the thoracic part is over 40°. [7]..”


CAUSES

Kyphosis Causes and Treatment By Jeffrey M. Spivak, MD Peer Reviewed spine-health.com
“…Osteoporosis-related kyphosis. The most common cause of kyphosis in adults is from vertebral fracture due to osteoporosis. This can occur in both men and women, but is more common in females than in males.2 As osteoporosis weakens the vertebral bones in the spine, the vertebrae are susceptible to fracture that typically occurs in a wedge shape – with the front of the vertebra collapsing and losing its height and the back of the vertebra maintaining its height. As the front of the bone is crushed, that segment of the spine tips forward, resulting in an excessive kyphotic curve and forward stooped posture. Treatment typically will address the underlying osteoporosis (to prevent future fractures) as well as pain reduction and possibly surgical repair of the fracture…”

As you spend time in a flexed (bent) position, your head begins to retain a forward position. This causes increased stress and weight on the spine and neck. The head should be directly over the body, creating a straight line from your shoulders to your ears.

By practicing proper posture and engaging in exercises to strengthen the back and neck, you can lighten the load. This will give your spine a break. ..”

How To Find Your Muscle Fiber Type

To find the predominant fiber type in a particular muscle in your body, we need to test the repetition limits of a muscle compared to its maximum strength. Keep in mind, these limits can be altered by your training and are, therefore, just rough estimates.

First, determine your one rep max (known as the 1 RM) for an isolation exercise for that muscle group, e.g. the dumbell curl. Find the weight you can only do one rep with. You want to use an isolation exercise because any exercise that uses any other muscle groups will skew the results. ..”

“..These muscles all originate from the scapula and insert in the humerus. The subscapularis muscle, for example, is very important for the internal rotation of the humerus. It arises from the subscapular fossa and inserts on the lesser tubercle of the humerus. The teres minor muscle originates from the lateral scapula border and inserts on the greater tubercle of the humerus. The supraspinatus muscle has its origin in the supraspinatous fossa and inserts on the greater tubercle of the humerus – similar to the teres minor muscle. The fourth muscle of the rotator cuff is the infraspinatus muscle. It originates in the infraspinatous fossa of the shoulder blade and inserts on the greater tubercle as well…”

The Rotator Cuff – S.I.T.S Muscles By Laura Inverarity, DO Updated April 30, 2017 verywell.com
“..The Four Rotator Cuff Muscles:

The four muscles that form the rotator cuff are the supraspinatus, infraspinatus, teres minor, and subscapularis.

Often the mnemonic S.I.T.S is used to help remember the muscles that make up the rotator cuff.

Supraspinatus: The supraspinatus muscle originates above the spine of the scapula and inserts on the greater tuberosity of the humerus. The supraspinatus abducts, or elevates, the shoulder joint out to the side. It also works with the other rotator cuff muscles to stabilize the head of the humerus in the glenohumeral joint, or shoulder joint.
Infraspinatus: The infraspinatus muscle originates below the spine of the scapula, in the infraspinatus fossa, and it inserts on the posterior aspect of the greater tuberosity of the humerus. The infraspinatus externally rotates the shoulder joint. It also works with the other rotator cuff muscles to stabilize the head of the humerus in the glenohumeral joint, or shoulder joint.
Teres Minor: The teres minor muscle originates on the lateral scapula border and inserts on the inferior aspect of the greater tuberosity of the humerus. The teres minor muscle externally rotates the shoulder joint. It also works with the other rotator cuff muscles to stabilize the head of the humerus in the glenohumeral joint, or shoulder joint.

Subscapularis: The subscapularis muscle originates on the anterior surface of the scapula, sitting directly over the ribs, and inserts on the lesser tuberosity of the humerus. The subscapularis muscle works to depress the head of the humerus allowing it to move freely in the glenohumeral joint during elevation of the arm. It also works with the other rotator cuff muscles to stabilize the head of the humerus in the glenohumeral joint, or shoulder joint…”

This video was put on as a test for one of my classes that I don’t teach anymore. I have no plans of redoing it or doing any more chapters for those who keep asking. There are 2 or 3 mistakes. Rectus abdominus originates on the pubis and inserts at the costal angle. Orbicularis oris is around the mouth and orbicularis oculi is around the eye. Brachioradialis originates on the distal humerus and inserts on the ulnar tuberosity (really fascia between ulna and radius). I’ve heard both protagonist and agonist for the opposite of the antagonist. I assume they are both correct.

the
Elbow

The elbow is a synovial hinge joint located between the upper arm and forearm. It is formed by the meeting of three bones: the humerus in the upper arm and the ulna and radius in the lower arm. Like all other hinge joints, the elbow permits movement in one plane, namely the flexion and extension of the forearm relative to the upper arm. However, the elbow also allows the wrist to rotate by pivoting the radius around the ulna. The muscles of the elbow cooperate to perform the many movements at the elbow joint, giving both great strength and flexibility to the arm……

The flexor group – including the brachialis, biceps brachii, and the brachioradialis – bend the arm by decreasing the angle between the forearm and upper arm. The brachialis is the primary flexor of the elbow and is found mainly in the upper arm between the humerus and the ulna…”

The elbow is a synovial hinge joint located between the upper arm and forearm. It is formed by the meeting of three bones: the humerus in the upper arm and the ulna and radius in the lower arm. Like all other hinge joints, the elbow permits movement in one plane, namely the flexion and extension of the forearm relative to the upper arm. However, the elbow also allows the wrist to rotate by pivoting the radius around the ulna. The muscles of the elbow cooperate to perform the many movements at the elbow joint, giving both great strength and flexibility to the arm……

These muscles can be broadly grouped into the flexor and extensor groups of the forearm.

The flexor group – including the brachialis, biceps brachii, and the brachioradialis – bend the arm by decreasing the angle between the forearm and upper arm. The brachialis is the primary flexor of the elbow and is found mainly in the upper arm between the humerus and the ulna. Superficial to the brachialis is the long biceps brachii muscle that runs anterior to the humerus from the scapula to the radius. The biceps mostly functions as a flexor at the elbow, but it is also able to supinate the forearm and turn the palm of the hand anteriorly. Although it is found mostly in the forearm, the brachioradialis is the third flexor muscle of the elbow, running from the distal end of the humerus to the distal end of the radius.

Two muscles – the triceps brachii and anconeus – act as the extensors of the forearm. The triceps brachii is a long muscle that runs posterior to the humerus from the scapula to the olecranon of the ulna. The anconeus is a much smaller muscle that begins at the distal end of the humerus near the elbow and ends at the olecranon. Working together, these two muscles increase the angle between the humerus and the ulna and radius, straightening the arm until the olecranon locks into the olecranon fossa of the humerus at full extension.

The rotation of the forearm is accomplished by two muscles that cross the elbow: the pronator teres and the supinator. The pronator teres crosses the elbow at an oblique angle from the medial epicondyle of the humerus to its insertion on the radius. When contracted, the pronator teres rotates the radius and forearm medially so that the palm faces the body’s posterior. Its antagonist, the supinator, crosses the elbow obliquely at a right angle to the pronator teres and connects the lateral epicondyle of the humerus to the radius. Contraction of the supinator rotates the radius and forearm laterally so that the palm faces the body’s anterior.

Nine more muscles of the forearm cross the elbow to move the wrist and fingers of the hand. The flexor group – including the flexor carpi radialis, flexor carpi ulnaris, palmaris longus, and flexor digitorum superficialis – have their origins on the medial epicondyle of the humerus and run along the anterior forearm to the palm of the hand and fingers. These muscles contract to flex the fingers as in making a fist and flex the wrist to move the hand closer to the anterior forearm. The extensor group – including the extensor carpi radialis longus, extensor carpi radialis brevis, and extensor digitorum – have their origins on the lateral epicondyle of the humerus and run through the posterior forearm to the back of the hand and fingers. …”

How To Deadlift: A Beginner’s Guide Todd Bumgardner, CSCS September 01, 2017 • 7 min read bodybuilding.com
“…So, why deadlift? Quite simply, the deadlift is one of the most effective exercises for developing the pure strength that’s a precursor to bodily size and athleticism. Since it’s a full-body exercise that recruits a lot of muscle mass, the deadlift also builds total-body muscle.1 It’s also one of the few exercises that directly targets the hamstrings, a group of muscles often neglected in the weight room.2

The deadlift also improves posture. We live most of our lives in front of our bodies, ignoring our rears. In turn, we develop bodily frames without balance, leading to a host of postural issues—hunched shoulders and weak backs, for example. Deadlifting reintroduces us to our body’s backside. Posterior training balances the body, giving us cause to stand taller and with greater strength.

In short, deadlifting will support your aesthetic goals, help you build better posture, correct various strength imbalances, help you build total strength, and turn you into a total gym badass. After all, there’s nothing quite like ripping heavy weight from the ground…”

Inflammation and thickening of the iliotibial band result from excessive friction as the iliotibial band slides over the lateral femoral condyle. The iliotibial band is a thick band of fascia that extends along the lateral thigh from the iliac crest to the knee. It inserts into the Gerdy’s tubercle of the tibia. The iliotibial band is a continuation of the tensor fascia lata muscle. The tensor fascia lata muscle arises from the outer surface of the anterior iliac crest, between the tubercle of the iliac spine and inserts into the iliotibial tract. The gluteus maximus also inserts into the iliotibial band. Function of the iliotibial band The IT band extends, abducts and laterally rotates the hip. The IT band also contributes to lateral knee stabilization. The IT band is repeatedly shifted forward and backward across the lateral femoral condyle. Impingement usually occurs around 30 degrees of knee flexion. There may be swelling, tenderness and crepitus over the lateral femoral condyle. The condition of ITBS around the knee most commonly occurs in runners, cyclists and other athletes undergoing exercise with repetitive knee flexion and extension.

Common Muscular Diseases by HANNAH RICE MYERS Last Updated: Aug 14, 2017 livestrong.com
“..The human body consists of approximately 640 muscles that are named, in addition to an innumerable amount of smaller muscles that are not. All of these muscles combined play an intricate role in the way your body moves and works, each with a different job. As with any part of your body, muscles can become weak or injured due to a variety of disorders or diseases…

Sprains and Strains

While similar in how the injury is obtained, the difference between sprains and strains is the area of the body affected. A sprain is a stretched or torn ligament, while a strain is is a stretched or torn muscle or tendon.

Ligaments are the tissues responsible for connecting the bones at the joint, such as an ankle or wrist. Common causes of sprains include …

Tendons connect the muscle to the bone and are affected during a strain. …. The most common symptoms include muscle spasms, difficulty moving the injured area, pain and swelling.

In both cases, treatment typically includes rest, ice, bandaging the area so it remains immobilized and pain medications that reduce swelling, such as ibuprofen. Physical therapy may later be necessary.

Myositis

Myositis is an inflammation of muscle fibers — a group of muscle diseases in which inflammation and degenerative changes occur. …

The most common diseases associated with myositis are dermatomyositis and polymyositis. While polymyositis results in muscle weakness in the muscles that are closest to the trunk of your body, dermatomyositis causes both muscle weakness and a skin rash. In both instances, the doctor typically treats with prednisone, a steroid.

Muscle Cramps

Muscle cramps are sudden and involuntary and can happen in one or more of your muscles at once. …

Muscular Dystrophy

Muscular dystrophy is not one muscular disease but a group of 30 genetic diseases that affect the muscles, causing weakness and complete loss and degeneration of the muscle. ..

Medical: What causes flatulence” (“gas”)?

Flatulence: Causes, symptoms, and remedies Last updated Wed 24 May 2017 By Christian Nordqvist
R eviewed by University of Illinois-Chicago, School of Medicine medicalnewstoday.com
“…gas, mainly in the form of hydrogen, methane, and carbon dioxide, is released.

As the gas builds up, the body may need to eliminate it, either through the mouth, by belching, or by passing wind through the anal passage.

Flatulence often occurs without the person being aware of it. There is no smell, and the amount is tiny. When there is a smell, there are usually small amounts of sulfur gases. If food has not been properly digested, it starts to decompose, or rot, releasing sulfur.

The Wolff’s Law On Bone Transformation And Remodeling, Part I .naturalheightgrowth.com
“..Bone is anisotropic (it has different strength and stiffness depending on the direction of the load). Bone will grow, build, adapt, transform, and remodel due to enormous stress or force. The larger the forces the shin bone sustains, the greater the osteoblast response.

For example, by sitting with 30 lb ankle weight on each leg, the ankle weight and the earth’s gravitational pull will cause your shin bone to remodel. Thus, by eating nutritional foods and taking supplements daily, your shin bone mass density begins to thicken and lengthen due to the downward force exerted by the weights & gravity…’

    This is How Your Bones Heal
    By Brett Sears, PT | Reviewed by a board-certified physician
    Updated June 27, 2017 .verywell.com
    “…Definition:

    Wolff’s Law states that bone grows and remodels in response to the forces that are placed upon it. After injury to bone, placing specific stress in specific directions to the bone can help it remodel and become normal healthy bone again. Your physical therapist should understand Wolff’s law to help guide your rehabilitation after a fracture or broken bone.
    How Does Wolff’s Law Apply to Physical Therapy

    Wolff’s Law applies to physical therapy in the treatment of osteoporosis and after a fracture.

    If you have osteoporosis, your bones may be brittle and weak. This can lead to pathologic fracture, most commonly in the spine or hip. Weight-bearing and strength exercises are usually recommended as a non-medicinal treatment for osteoporosis.

    If you have suffered a fracture, bone healing occurs while you have been immobilized with a cast or splint. After immobilization, gentle range of motion and stress can help improve the overall strength of your bone. This can help ensure that your bone is able to tolerate the loads and stresses that you may encounter during normal functional activities…

    Your PT can help guide you by prescribing the right exercises for you to do that will add a gradual and progressive stress to your injured bone.

    For example, after an ankle fracture, your doctor may order that you remain non-weight bearing for a few weeks immediately after the injury. During this time, there may be some benefit of early mobilization for your ankle. Your physical therapist can prescribe safe exercises that you can do that will place gentle stress through your bone while helping you maintain mobility….”

    “..Comparing Tendinitis and Bursitis

    Broadly speaking, tendinitis and bursitis are differentiated by the types of tissue affected:

    Tendinitis refers to inflammation of the tendon, the rope-like, fibrous tissue that connects muscle to bone. When a muscle flexes or relaxes, the tendon acts like a winch and causes the bone to move. Tendons can be small, like those found in the hands and feet, or large, like the Achilles tendon.

    Bursitis is the inflammation of the fluid-filled sac, called the bursa, which acts as a cushion between bones and the tendons or muscles surrounding the bone. The bursa greatly reduces the friction as these structures regularly rub against each other. The major bursae are located adjacent to the tendons of the large joints, such as those in the shoulders, elbows, hips, and knees…”

    “..Physiology of fracture healing

    Fracture healing involves complex processes of cell and tissue proliferation and differentiation. Many players are involved, including growth factors, inflammatory cytokines, antioxidants, bone breakdown (osteoclast) and bone-building (osteoblast) cells, hormones, amino acids, and uncounted nutrients.

    Fracture healing can be divided into three phases.

    The inflammation phase is the first stage of healing. Immediately upon fracture, a blood clot forms, allowing the influx of inflammatory, clean-up cells to the wound area. ..

    The second, reparative stage begins about two weeks after the fracture occurs….

    The final step of fracture repair is known as the remodeling phase…..

    5 nutritional steps to accelerate fracture healing

    People who have had a fracture aren’t often told that they can do anything to make their bones heal faster — at most, they’re told to limit the use of the injured bone or limb (not easy to do if the fracture is in your spine!). But there are a number of methods you can employ to reduce your healing time:

    1. Provide the body with adequate energy

    Fracture healing requires more energy than you might expect. Thus, it’s appropriate to increase your caloric intake to promote healing…
    <p.
    2. Check your protein intake

    Bone can be imagined as being somewhat like a sponge made of living protein upon which mineral crystals are embedded…..In addition, protein supplementation increases growth factors like insulin-like growth factor-1 (IGF-1), a polypeptide that exerts a positive effect on skeletal integrity, muscle strength, immune response, and bone renewal…

    3. Increase anti-inflammatory nutrients

    Antioxidants repair oxidative damage. When a bone fracture occurs, a remarkable yield of free radicals is generated by the damaged tissues. In particular, this damage occurs as the tightly bound collagen strands running through the mineral phase of bone are forcefully broken. …. In such cases, antioxidants — including vitamins E and C, lycopene, and alpha-lipoic acid — have been suggested to be beneficial in suppressing the destructive effect of oxidant free radicals on whole body systems and improving fracture healing in animal models and cultured human cell lines.

    Inflammation is an essential component of the healing process in bone…Vitamin C, bioflavonoids and flavonols such as quercitin and proanthrocydins, and omega-3 fatty acids naturally soothe the inflammatory process and speed healing…

    4. Boost your mineral intake

    By weight, bone is roughly 70% minerals (calcium, phosphorus, magnesium, silicon, zinc, etc.) and fracture healing requires available minerals. Most of us under-consume minerals on an everyday basis, so drawing minerals to the healing site can often involve a process of “stealing from Peter to pay Paul.” (See our 20 key bone nutrients for details on average mineral intake.)

    Specific key minerals for fracture healing include the following:

    …. Early research suggested that fractures can heal normally independent of dietary calcium and indeed it has been found that during the first few weeks of healing, calcium is drawn from the skeleton for fracture healing. After that, the diet provides the calcium necessary for fracture repair. Calcium adequacy at the RDA level is important, but unusually high intakes do not appear to speed fracture healing. As calcium absorption is dependent on vitamin D, these nutrients work synergistically. Human studies, in fact, suggest that for best fracture healing both calcium and vitamin D should be obtained in optimum daily levels. Most of us consume plenty of phosphorus and often too much if the diet is high in processed foods and colas. However, the elderly, dieters, and those on low protein diets often do not consume enough phosphorus to meet the needs of new bone formation….

    5. Enhance vitamin intake

    Besides, I knew the end result was healing so if enduring this silly wrist pain in the meantime was part of the journey God has taken me on as He leads me into His call and plan for my life it was SO worth it!

    As I approached the hospital I could feel the Holy Spirit stirring in me more and more. The closer I got the more I knew I was SUPPOSED to be at that office. Walking in I was smiling at everyone, making eye contact, saying “good morning” – I didn’t want to “miss” anyone in case God had sent me there to minister to them…”

    Instantly Healed of Carpal Tunnel Pain – Bethel Church May 21, 2015 bethel.com
    “..We received this testimony from an attendee of our 2015 Healing School.

    One night after the Healing School, a man was tired from the long day and all he wanted to do was get home. But, he felt prompted to stop at a local grocery store. While inside, he noticed a woman whose hand was shaking. As he was waiting to check out, she came up behind him in line with her hand still waving around. “Are you in pain?” he asked. She said she was in a lot of pain because of carpal tunnel. “I just came from a healing conference! Would you like me to pray for you?” he asked. She couldn’t get her hand out to him fast enough she was in so much pain. After a short prayer, the pain was completely gone! The lady was amazed! She was thankful for the chance encounter. The man explained he’d been sent into the store to meet her and pray for her – it was no chance encounter, it was a divine appointment. She walked away healed and feeling known by God!

    How To Use an EpiPen

    EpiPen Alternatives Exist, and They May be Cheaper
    By Rachael Rettner, Senior Writer | August 26, 2016 06:29pm ET livescience.com
    “…But in recent years, the price of the EpiPen has increased dramatically, from $100 in 2007 to a current price of $600 for a two-pack, according to The New York Times. This price increase may limit access to the drug for people who need it, said U.S. Senator Charles Grassley of Iowa, who sent a letter this week to Mylan, the manufacturer of EpiPen, asking about the drug’s pricing. And although health insurance may cover the drug, people with certain insurance plans, such as high-deductible plans, may have to pay the full price, according to USA Today.

    But there is a cheaper alternative to the EpiPen, called Adrenaclick, which can be found at Walmart and Sam’s Club for as little as $142 with a coupon, according to Consumer Reports. Adrenaclick provides the same medication, at the same doses, as the EpiPen, according to Adrenaclick’s website. There’s also a generic version of Adrenaclick, called “epinephrine injection, USP auto-injector.” (There is no generic version of the EpiPen.)

    However, the method of administering Adrenaclick or its generic version is a little different from that for the EpiPen; for example, Adrenaclick has two caps that need to be removed, while EpiPen has only one cap.

    For this reason, it’s important that users learn precisely how to use whichever device they have, the American Academy of Allergy, Asthma & Immunology (AAAAI) said.

    “The stress of an anaphylactic reaction is not the time to realize you have a different auto-injector than what was demonstrated to you by your allergist,” AAAAI said.

    Another brand of epinephrine auto-injector, called Auvi‑Q, was recalled last year because it was found to deliver potentially inaccurate doses of epinephrine, according to the Food and Drug Administration. It is no longer on the market….”

    Types of Shock

    There are several different types of shock that are all severely life-threatening if left untreated. The following are the types of shock:

    Hypovolemic shock: caused by great volume losses of blood and fluids
    Cardiogenic shock: linked to heart problems
    Anaphylactic shock: caused by a severe allergic reaction
    Septic shock: linked to body infections
    Neurogenic shock: caused by damage to the nervous system

    First Aid Management for Shock

    A person should call for emergency medical services immediately for symptoms of shock. While waiting for the paramedics, apply first aid to help avoid complications from developing. The following steps are generally recommended:

    Call for emergency medical services immediately or have someone drive the victim to the nearest emergency room.
    Check the victim’s circulation, airway and breathing. If necessary, initiate rescue breathing and CPR.
    Constant check rate of breathing every five minutes even if the victim is capable of breathing on his or her own.
    If the victim is conscious with no injury to the head, neck, spine or leg, lay the person down flatly with the feet elevated about 12 inches to increase circulation. The head should not be elevated. This is called the shock position. However, if there is a suspected head, neck, back, or leg injury, do not move the individual’s position unless there is danger in the immediate environment.
    If there is bleeding, broken bones or other injuries, apply appropriate first aid.
    Keep the person warm by covering with a blanket or coat. Loosen any tight clothing.
    If there is no injury, turn the victim’s head to the side to avoid choking. If there is a suspected spinal injury, hold the person’s head, neck and back in a line and roll the victim to the side as a unit.

    Medical: Chronic Pain Disorder- Causes, Prevention, and Treatment of Fibromyalgia

    Fibromyalgia ˌfī-(ˌ)brō-ˌmī-ˈal-j(ē-)ə
    (Myofascial Pain Syndrome; Fibrositis; Fibromyositis)
    By Joseph J. Biundo, MD, Clinical Professor of Medicine, Tulane Medical Center merckmanuals.com
    “..is characterized by poor sleep, fatigue, and widespread aching and stiffness in soft tissues, including muscles, tendons, and ligaments…”

    CAUSES

    Fibromyalgia Causes, healthline.com
    “..Causes of fibromyalgia

    Experts don’t know exactly what causes fibromyalgia, but a few factors might be involved:

    Abnormal pain signaling

    In people with fibromyalgia, the nervous system may not process pain signals in the usual way. Abnormal levels of chemicals in the brain, spinal cord, and nerves that carry these signals may make people more sensitive to the feeling of pain.
    Hormone imbalances

    Hormones such as serotonin, norepinephrine (noradrenaline), and dopamine help your body to process pain. Lower-than-normal levels of these hormones in the brain and nervous system may interrupt pain signals and intensify your sensitivity to them.
    Genetics

    Fibromyalgia can run in families. It’s likely that there’s an unidentified genetic abnormality that increases certain people’s risk for the condition. Certain genes may control the way the body regulates pain responses. Scientists speculate that people with fibromyalgia carry one or more genes that cause them to react strongly to stimuli that another person may not perceive as painful.
    Triggers

    For many people, symptoms begin after emotional or physical trauma, or a bout with an infectious disease. These factors do not likely cause fibromyalgia by themselves. However, they may trigger the onset in people who are already at risk for it by altering the nervous system’s response to pain.

    The following may also be fibromyalgia triggers:

    infections such as the flu
    repeated injuries
    surgery
    a traumatic life event such as a breakup, divorce, or the death of a loved one
    childbirth

    Sleep disturbances

    Problems getting enough sleep or spending enough time in the deepest stages of sleep are common in this disorder. But doctors aren’t sure if this is a symptom or a cause of fibromyalgia. Abnormal sleep patterns can affect the levels of some brain chemicals.
    ..”

    Possible Causes of Fibromyalgia fibrocenter.com
    “..Possible Fibromyalgia Causes

    Heredity. Research shows that, like many conditions, fibromyalgia is believed to run in families. So it is likely that some people are born with genes that increase their risk of getting it.

    Fibromyalgia can start at any time. But there may be some events that trigger fibromyalgia in those who have an increased risk of developing it.

    Accidents and injuries. Fibromyalgia may be triggered by an injury or trauma (for example, auto accidents and war).

    Infection. Some infections that may be linked to fibromyalgia include hepatitis C, Epstein-Barr virus, parvovirus, and Lyme disease.

    Autoimmune disorders. These disorders occur when the body’s immune system sees its own tissues as foreign and attacks them. Rheumatoid arthritis and lupus are examples of autoimmune disorders.

    Psychological and emotional stress. The onset of fibromyalgia has been linked with certain types of emotional stress…”

    10 Facts About Fibromyalgia By The Editors of Prevention prevention.com
    Fibromyalgia pain is real, frustrating, and frightening. How to spot fibromyalgia symptoms and get the help you need.

    ‘..5. Check your vitamin D intake
    The evidence has been mounting for years that too-low levels of vitamin D may play a role in fibro pain. Scientists have long known that vitamin D deficiency causes bone and muscle pain, and more than half of us don’t get enough of this super vitamin. …

    6. Watch out for tummy troubles
    Up to 70% of fibro sufferers also have to deal with irritable bowel symptoms, such as diarrhea or upset stomach. The two conditions may share underlying causes, according to the UNC Center for Functional GI and Motility Disorders; brain studies indicate that patients with both conditions have greater pain responses and increased awareness of pain.

    You may need to see a GI specialist to help your stomach symptoms, but you can start keeping a log of the foods that seem to set you off. Big culprits include heavy, rich meals and caffeine (both can cause your intestines to cramp). You may also want to keep gas-triggering foods, such as beans and cruciferous veggies, off your plate….

    9. Find a no-fail stress soother
    Stress makes fibromyalgia worse, so consider it doctor’s orders to give your body the rest it craves……It’s important to go with the flow, listen to your body, and schedule your day appropriately for your level of strength and energy.

    10. Don’t overdo it on your “good days”
    People with fibromyalgia typically have good days and bad ones. Though it’s tempting to morph into the Energizer Bunny when you’re feeling better, don’t. “Trying to push yourself will just cause added stress, and that can exacerbate your pain and fatigue,” says Rooks. Cram your good days with too much stuff, and you’ll just wind up with more bad days, reports the American Academy of Family Physicians…”

    Fibromyalgia: A Functional Medicine Approach By Susan Blum, MD, MPH Board Certified in Preventive Medicine and a Chronic Disease Specialist Founder and Director of Blum Center for Health
    Posted on 3/13/2012 | By Susan Blum, MD, MPH doctoroz.com
    “..The Digestive System

    The reason the digestive system (referred to as the gut) is so important is because 70% of your immune system lives just under the surface of your intestinal lining, and any disruption in the beneficial bacteria – think lactobacilli and bifido bacteria, those good bugs in yogurt –or the intestinal lining, will cause immune reactions that release inflammatory molecules that travel throughout the body causing inflammation at distant sites. This is one of the core beliefs and approaches of functional medicine, supported by studies in the literature, and evidence I see every day in my practice. Fixing the gut can sometimes completely relieve pain and inflammation in the muscles and joints.

    Every patient with fibromyalgia has a comprehensive digestive stool analysis to help in the diagnosis of what might be out of balance in the digestive tract. I look for dysbiosis, an overgrowth of “bad” bacteria, yeast, and/or parasites, and I look for signs of leaky gut syndrome, a condition where there is increased permeability in the intestinal lining. These conditions can cause distant inflammation and have been implicated in fibromyalgia, arthritis, and autoimmune disease.

    Once I make a diagnosis of dysbiosis and/or leaky gut syndrome, I begin the treatment with herbs and supplements that restore health of the digestive tract. ..”

    Fibromyalgia Prevention healthtools.aarp.org
    “..Reduce Emotional and Mental Stress

    The symptoms of fibromyalgia get worse with stress. You can reduce flare-ups by minimizing those things that cause you the most stress. Eliminating stress inducers like unhealthy relationships or tense work environments is one way to do this. Some stressors cannot be avoided. When you cannot eliminate the source of stress, learning coping techniques can help minimize the effects of stress on your body and your mind.

    Positive stress busters include:

    meditation
    relaxation
    acupuncture
    deep breathing techniques

    Moderate intensity exercise is also a good way to blow off steam in a healthy way. ..”

    Natural Remedies for Fibromyalgia – Fibromyalgia Natural Treatment

    Pain is the most prominent symptom of Fibromaylgia. It usually affects the entire body, although it may start in one area, such as the neck and shoulders, and spread to other areas over a period of time. Fibromyalgia is a form of generalized muscular pain and fatigue. The name, Fibromyalgia, means pain in the muscles and the fibrous connective tissues (the ligaments and tendons).

    You (or someone you know) may be experiencing moderate or severe fatigue with a lack of energy, decreased exercise endurance, or the kind of exhaustion that results from the flu or lack of sleep. Sometimes the fatigue is more of a problem than the pain. Headaches, especially tension and migraine headaches, are common in Fibromyalgia. Abdominal pain, bloating, alternating constipation, bladder spasms, and irritability may cause urinary urgency or frequency. Your skin and blood circulation can be sensitive to temperature changes, resulting in temporary changes in skin color.

    Have you suffered with for a few months, a few years, or too many years to mention? Some may suffer only minor symptoms, while others (perhaps you or a loved one) feel the debilitating affects of Fibromyalgia and are kept from participating in their life, making even simple daily activities almost impossible.

    Here at Power Health we look at the person and not the diagnosis. Our goal is to find out what is causing the problem and help you to correct that without drugs or surgery.

    Both vitamin D and magnesium levels have been found to be low in people with fibromyalgia, but as of yet there is no evidence that taking vitamin supplements are an effective fibromyalgia treatment. Vitamin D, known as the sunshine vitamin, does have some effects on nerve and muscle function, and some studies have suggested that low levels of vitamin D may be associated with chronic pain of fibromyalgia. In a small clinical study published online in the January 2012 issue of Pain Medicine, fibromyalgia symptoms improved in 30 women after 8 weeks of vitamin D supplementation.

    Healed of Fibromyalgia Symptoms Apr 29, 2008 bethel.com

    Damaris started to experience what she described as “daily pain about eight years ago in slow but ever-increasing amounts that in the last two years has become incredibly pronounced and has kept me from sleeping for any restful length of time. I had all of the symptoms of fibromyalgia: intense and constant muscle soreness that only pain medication can alleviate, inability to enter into REM sleep, fatigue regardless of how long I was in bed, headaches, severe joint stiffness that impedes movement, restless leg syndrome. ..”

    Healed from Deafness, Fibromyalgia and Other Diseases
    Lars, BEd – Coffs Harbour, Australia cai.org
    “..When she was at her lowest she was plagued with permanent thoughts of suicide. She had to move back in at her parents’ place, as she could no longer live by herself anymore. That’s when she started crying out to God and wanted to get in touch with her friend Claudia again. A couple of weeks after being back at her parents place she bumped into Claudia, who then eventually invited her for to come along to a church meeting. This was where I met Rebecca for the first time. Rebecca told us how much at home she felt with us and due to her sickness it was another few weeks before she could come again. During this meeting we talked about the power of God and that God wants people to be healthy and expects his followers to pray for the sick. We read many scriptures like MARK 16:15-20, ISAIAH 53:5, MATTHEW 4:23, and HEBREWS 13:8 and explained them.
    The power of God healed her from EVERYTHING!

    Many people received prayer in that meeting and Rebecca asked for prayer for her glossopharyngeal neuralgia she suffered from. We laid hands on her and prayed in Jesus’ name (MARK 16:18). She was initially still in pain, as if somebody stabbed through her ear, but the moment she stepped outside as she left the meeting the pain completely went; for the first time in 3.5 years and to this day the pain has never come back. She realised that God is real and came back the following week, despite her parents threatening her to chuck her out if she went again. We happened to have a prayer night that Friday and led Rebecca through the Scriptures about how to be saved. We looked at Scriptures concerning baptism by immersion and Rebecca then asked to be baptized, which we did straight away in the upstairs bathtub . Afterwards we looked at some Scriptures about receiving the Holy Spirit (ACTS 2:4, LUKE 11:13), and we then laid hands on her and asked God to fill her with the Holy Spirit. As a result she then started to speak in new tongues and was born again…”

    “..Who Needs Magnesium?

    Magnesium is used in the process of metabolism. The body consumes mega amounts—especially when under stress of any kind. This means athletes can become very prone to magnesium deficiency. Hyperkalaemia, excessive calcium depositing in the soft tissue, ligaments and joints, is a typical sign of magnesium deficiency, as are cramping and restless legs.

    As tissue cell levels of magnesium drop, calcium can leach out of the bones and settle in these places. You may also find it settling at injury sites or areas of low pH in the body, as calcium is also used by the body to alkalize and buffer acid by-products.

    We are exposed to large amounts of calcium in foods these days, but relatively low levels of magnesium. It is often the case that simply increasing magnesium exposure can balance and control that excess calcium…”

    Epsom Salt Vs. Magnesium Chloride by MEG BRANNAGAN Last Updated: Aug 14, 2017 livestrong.com
    “..Magnesium Chloride

    Magnesium chloride is a type of salt that originally comes from seawater. It is often taken orally to resolve mild hypomagnesemia, or it may be given intravenously for those who have severe deficiencies. In some situations, magnesium chloride is used as an emergency medication for a heart attack. Different types of supplements may have varying amounts of elemental magnesium, which means that not all magnesium in the supplement is available for absorption by the body. According to the National Institutes of Health, magnesium chloride has approximately 12 percent magnesium available for absorption. Alternatively, magnesium sulfate, or that found in Epsom salt, contains only 10 percent magnesium available for absorption.
    Considerations

    Although both Epsom salt and magnesium chloride may be given for the treatment of some conditions, consult your doctor if you have any side effects. While Epsom salt is approved by the FDA as safe to ingest, read the directions to avoid overconsumption. Magnesium chloride may interfere with other drugs you might be taking, including some thyroid replacement medications and certain antibiotics. If you must take magnesium to replace a deficiency, your doctor can determine the proper dosage and what drugs are safe to use…”

    Magnesium Chloride Flakes Vs Epsom Salts elektramagnesium.com.au
    “..The best salt sources are from pristine mountainous locations not near industry, populations or mining. The best harvesting methods are from open salt lakes via natural dehydration in evaporation tanks, which provides a food grade quality for drinking water or tofu. This should also be confirmed via independent laboratory testing.

    Dehydration of the salt brine sends the sodium chloride to the top layer, which is skimmed off to make table salt. This process leaves behind the magnesium chloride and other trace minerals in a natural mineral package from Nature.

    MagnesMagnesium Chloride Flakesium chloride flakes are an excellent food source for electrolyte replacement to avoid cramps and magnesium deficiency symptoms. Food grade magnesium chloride flakes are commonly used by Asian food manufacturers to make tofu products. They can also be added to filtered water to make a mineral alkaline drinking water…

    When you soak in a magnesium flakes bath or footsoak the hot water helps the skin to open up and absorb more magnesium. In addition, the body can release toxins and metabolism wastes through the skin. Whatever you can excrete via the skin lifts the load off the kidney and liver to process and eliminate. And it feels so fantastic! Add a bit of candle light and some fragrant essential oils and you’ve got the perfect pampering bath. Relax, revive, replenish!

    Even in the first ten minutes you can experience an overwhelming relaxation and sensation of calmness wind its way through your system. A surge of peace flows through your limbs, then into the heart. Did you know that the left ventricle of the heart has more magnesium receptors than any other muscle in the body? That’s how important magnesium is to the heart and its rhythm…”
