Exercise Reduces Symptoms from Fibromyalgia | Central Chiropractor

Fibromyalgia is a mysterious disorder that has been misunderstood for many years, however, there are lots of treatment options available to relieve its symptoms. When it comes to fibromyalgia, exercise can be beneficial to relieve it.

How does exercise help fibromyalgia?
Exercise will be an essential part of fibromyalgia therapy, although your chronic pain and fatigue may make exercising seem excruciating. Physical activity reduces symptoms such as fatigue, depression, and can even help you sleep better. Exercise can be a fundamental part of managing your symptoms.

Exercise for Fibromyalgia
Getting regular physical activity 30 minutes per day, helps reduce perceptions of pain in people with fibromyalgia, according to a 2010 study published in Arthritis Research & Therapy. The signs of fibromyalgia may make exercising a challenge, although exercise is a commonly prescribed treatment for chronic pain.

During a research study, the research team separated 84 minimally active patients…

The Coffee Enema: How and When to Do It

The Coffee Enema: How and When to Do It - El Paso Chiropractor

On accounts of various individuals and healthcare professionals today, coffee enemas have been utilized to relieve various conditions and illnesses. The following article emphasizes several important basic information people should know before utilizing a coffee enema. It's fundamental to assess the individual's health as a whole before attempting any procedures on your own.
Using enemas for therapeutic purposes has been around since ancient times and is referenced in both the Dead Sea Scrolls and a third-century Aramaic manuscript. There are many things you can use in an enema like probiotics, essential oils, and chlorophyll; but my favorite and probably the most popular ingredient to use in a therapeutic enema, is coffee.
Using coffee dates back to World War I, when it was discovered that administering coffee rectally provided pain relief. This prompted studies which showed that coffee dilated bile ducts, restored the liver, and released toxic bile and waste products into the digestive tract to be carried out of the body. Since then, coffee enemas have been shown to help with many health conditions like arthritis, depression, cancer and inflammatory bowel disease.
In my personal experience, doing a regular enema healed the scar tissue in my intestine, was huge in healing my crohn’s disease, tackled a lingering candida issue, and regenerated my bowel function. Most importantly, it saved me from having to have one of those beautifully attractive colostomy bags that every 20-year-old wants to have when they’re looking for Mr. Handsome Man.
Because of coffee’s ability to address the toxic cause of chronic disease, Dr. Max Gerson adopted it into his cancer healing program, and countless doctors including O.A. Meyer, Martin Heubner, William Kelley, Harold Manner, Nicholas Gonzales, W. J. Mayo, and Linda Isaacs, have done the same. Dr. Peter Lechner (an oncologist surgeon) of Austria conducted a trial of the Gerson cancer therapy in the post-surgical treatment of metastasized colorectal cancers and reported in 1984 that “Coffee enemas have a definite effect on the colon which can be observed with an endoscope.” Currently, coffee enemas are being tested for the prevention of pancreatic cancer and were even listed in the Merck manual from 1899-1977 (and was removed to make room for new material…not because of ineffectiveness).
And hey, if it works for cancer it works for me right? If you’re wanting to heal intestinal scar tissue, use essential oils in your enema. If you want to gently cleanse the gut, use chlorophyll. If you want to address and re-populate your gut flora, use probiotics. If you’re serious about detoxing, pull out the big guns and use coffee.

How To Do a Coffee Enema

Fill a small coffee pot with filtered water. Add 3 tablespoons of coffee, bring to a boil, and reduce heat to low and simmer for 15 minutes. You can let it cool down to room temp or slightly higher than body temperature (which I prefer). This could take an hour or two. Attach the hose and attachment piece to your enema bucket and clamp the hose. Strain and pour in the coffee solution. Grab your iPad and head to the bathroom. Put a little olive oil on the attachment and insert into your bumper. I know…it’s weird but you’ll get over it. Lay on your right side or hang out in down dog (on your knees) and unfasten the clamp. You can also hang the bucket on the door knob. Release the solution and clamp the hose if you need to slow down the flow or if you feel cramps. Once your solution is gone, clamp the hose, pull out the attachment, and either invert or lay on your right side, knees to chest, and breathe deeply to bring the solution deeper into your colon. Try to retain the enema for 15 minutes so you can get all the effects of the coffee. When your 15 minutes is up you’ll know it. Go…sit on the loo…and let er’ poo. When you’re done, clean your toilet, take a shower, rinse the bucket and sanitize the attachment. Go run a marathon…you’ll feel like you want to.  How often should you do a coffee enema?
Many programs recommend doing enemas every day during a detox. If you have cancer or a severe medical condition, programs like Gerson Therapy would advise using it several times a day (and sometimes in conjunction with castor oil). To me, that seems like a lot. Once every 2-3 days or as needed, is a more balanced approach.

Can you become addicted to coffee enemas?

Although some are concerned about becoming addicted to using enemas, I have a hard time wrapping my mind around it. A person can be addicted to anything and people are certainly addicted to drinking coffee in this country (which is far inferior therapeutically). That to me, is a greater concern. The people from “My Strange Addiction” on TLC are not accurate representations of people who utilize enemas.
Despite the great feeling post enema, doing it is a process, requires preparation, a set aside block of time, a good toilet cleaning, and a shower. Do that every two days for 2-3 years while babies are running around and you’ll come to appreciate your ability to naturally take a poo in the loo.

Will my colon become dependent upon an enema?

Many people think their colon will become reliant on an enema to relieve itself. In my experience, this is not the case. An enema is not a laxative or a stimulant. In rehydrates the stool, soothes the colon, and your body evacuates on its own. I had zero bowel function for almost three years and used an enema to regain it. However, an enema should not be used as a crutch for bad habits. If you can’t #2, you need to address your food.

Where can I buy the enema kit and coffee?

Although you can find inexpensive enema bags at Wal-Mart and internal cleansing systems on Amazon, I’ve found that these products are great for single uses but are very hard to clean. Nobody wants to populate the gut with black mold. If you’re serious about detoxing and are using enemas therpeutically, I’d recommend investing in a good one.
I personally use a stainless steel enema kit with Gerson coffee from Pure Life. The kit comes with instructions on how to use the enema and this lovely disclaimer, which I took a picture of for my own amusement.
That aside, I’m not allowed to give medical advice either, so this is my personal opinion on the matter. If you want a medical opinion you should heed the disclaimer and consult your doctor who (unless he/she is super cool) will probably freak out because they’ve never done it themselves and have no understanding of, or training in the therapeutic use of an enema. It does however, make for an entertaining appointment. In addition to heeding the disclaimer, I would also invest in a book on Gerson Therapy.
Sourced through from:
Dating back to approximately around the time of World War I, coffee has been utilized in enemas by physicians as a method to help detoxify the body of harmful toxins and improve illnesses and conditions. While additional research studies are still necessary to determine their effectiveness today, many individuals still use coffee enemas to rid their bodies of these undesired toxins.

Pain in the Quadratus Lumborum Muscle

A majority of the population have at some point experienced low back pain in their lifetimes. Although low back pain is recognized to result from numerous conditions or injuries on the lumbar spine, muscle strains such as a quadratus lumborum muscle strain, are believed to be a leading cause for the recognizable symptoms of pain and discomfort.
The quadratus lumborum muscle is a sizable muscle in the shape of a triangle, located deep on each respective side of the lower back. The role of the wide muscular tissue is to grant mobility to the lumbar spine in sequence for the torso to move laterally from side to side as well as extend and stabilize the lower spine to improve posture. When this muscle is strained or pulled, the symptoms can restrict movement on the lower back and since the muscular tissue is so extensive, recovery from this type of injury usually requires more time and patience to fully heal.

Achilles Tendon Injury

Achilles tendonitis is a medical term used to describe a condition resulting in irritation of the large tendon, the Achilles tendon. Found in the back of the ankle, this condition is recognized as a common cause for injury among athletes. Excessive use of the Achilles tendon results in inflammation together with swelling and pain.
The development of Achilles tendonitis can be associated with two important factors, most frequently among athletes, which are, lack of flexibility and over-pronation. With age, the tendons will begin to lose flexibility, just the same as other tissues in the body. This change causes the tendons to become more rigid and more vulnerable to injury. For some people, the ankle may roll too far downward and inward with each step they take. This is called over-pronation, which places more stress on the tendons and ligaments of the foot, contributing to injury if not corrected.
Achilles tendonitis may also develop from other factors. An increase in an athlete’s …

5 Common Causes for Shoulder Pain

The shoulders are the most mobile joints in the human body. Because the ball of the humerus is designed to be larger than the shoulder socket that holds it, the shoulders need to be supported by muscles, tendons, and ligaments to secure them in a stable or natural position. Since the shoulder can be unstable, it is often a site for many common complications. Below are 5 common causes of shoulder pain and their associated symptoms.
Rotator Cuff Tear
Rotator cuff tears within the shoulder are a very common type of shoulder injury. The rotator cuff consists of a set of four muscles: the supraspinatus, the infraspinatus, the subscapularis, and the teres minor. All of these muscles are attached to the bones of the shoulders by tendons, which purspose is to support, stabilize, and grant the arm movement to move up, down and rotate. The rotator cuff ensures that the arm remains in the shoulder socket. Damage or injury from an accident or gradual wear and tear can result in inflammation to t…
