Chiropractic: An Alternative Medical Solution

Chiropractic is known to be a drug-free and surgery-free kind of care, a method of relieving pain. It is an alternative medicine dedicated to treatments for illnesses relating to the nervous systems or musculoskeletal systems.  Chiropractors believe that a natural approach to alleviating patient’s health thru the body characteristic of healing itself is an element. It is then the duty of the chiropractor to make this possible to achieve the patient’s health goals and improve their conditions.  In brief, chiropractic is a natural system of care that understands nature’s ways.

Medical research and studies proved that chiropractic benefits help to improve the following medical conditions:

Sciatica

Lower Back Pain & Neck Pain

Headaches – Tension & Migraine

Colic & Ear Infections

Neurological Conditions

Blood Pressure

Frozen Shoulder

Scoliosis

Arthritis

Asthma

 

Chiropractic as a system of relieving pain may correct the problems that caused the pain rather than settle to a temporary relief by taking medications.

The first chiropractic adjustment took place and developed in 1895, tried on a partially deaf janitor, by a magnetic healer named Daniel David Palmer of Davenport, Iowa. Mr. Palmer then concocted the term “Chiropractic” for his manual therapy technique, which was derived from two Greek words (which means “with hands”).

From then on, millions of people around the world have relied on the remarkable benefits of Chiropractic. Although there are some misconceptions about it, it is quite a reverse because chiropractic programs encompassed an entire year of PHD-level advanced nutrition training. In fact, it is promoted and recognized to live pain-free and well with a proper Chiropractic care!

 

 

 

Hakuna Matata…No worries!

Remember the movie “The Lion King”?  “Hakuna Matata” is a song in this film and sung by the characters, Simba, Timon & Pumbaa.  The warbling of the song displayed exuberance, what with these creatures acting out fantastically thru the tunes and you get to wiggle…..

And it boosts your energy saying this every day:

You do not have to think of anything but bright ones and be hopeful.

Hakuna Matata is a famous Swahili phrase which means “ No worries”.  Such a wonderful phrase! Which makes me wonder how people like me, who is a worrier, failed to uncover the true meaning of Hakuna Matata. Anyhow, it is not too late, “don’t worry, be happy”, so they say. At the end of the day, we will not stop learning until our last breath.

One of the things that pep me up during tough times, is going on nature hopping. It really makes me feel at PEACE with myself. The sea….I love the sea, its calmness, and cool breeze. And may I also add that at work, I am a learned marine underwriter. I admit that it is in my personality that I do like things relating to marine.

I have gone to a lot of breathtaking beaches in the United Arab Emirates, take a look:

The sea makes me experience real quietude and the urge to care for myself which I neglected for a time.

Still, on a positive note, I will end my blog thru this avowal:

Hakuna Matata……la la la la….

Melancholy Emerges Unexpectedly

Sometimes you feel sad without any reason at all.  I am an extrovert as I portrayed often but I feel that I am an introvert as well.  Maybe a cross between them, I am not so sure.  What do you think I am when by chance I attended a funeral mass while in a foreign land? I will share the details of the incident. Because I was late for the 5:30 P.M. mass, I stayed longer for a warm-hearted prayer.  Obviously, it was my first time in that church. I sat in the 5th row.  The altar server was asking me if I ‘m going to attend the mass and if I will I should move forward.  I was told to get the book for the mass as well. I smiled sweetly as I was glad there is still a mass. When I saw the book, it was written Mass for a funeral (it was a special mass, not the funeral itself).

I said to myself:  “It is still a mass”.  I have moved then to the 3rd row. It was a very solemn mass and I was so engrossed with it. Until I found out that I have seated along with the family members of the departed one.  After the mass, they were asking everyone to join them for a dinner that they have prepared in the function room of the church.  Do you think I will go in if I am an introvert? I did not.  So your guess is as good as mine.

The Church

 

I maybe a melancholic- type as far as temperament is concerned, because more often than not, I am analytical and quiet.  Dissecting it deeply, yes I agree that  I am melancholic. But a person with a melancholic type of a personality is a perfectionist introvert so they say. Maybe I am a perfectionist introvert, I do regret.

I am expressing my thoughts about melancholy as this year has brought me tough challenges that made me feel lethargic. Though I have embraced it positively. No worries at all, I should look at the bright side.

I recall that in 2015, my friend Alerose, was encouraging me to visit South Korea. We both love  this country’s culture and it was time to pack our bags in February  this year when we were feeling wretch about adversities in work life that we were trying to put behind us even for a while.

So we flew to this lovely place.
