Neck Pain In The Car...

Have you ever noticed how taxi drivers very still. I have a family member who is driver and I must say he always seems so relaxed and in control behind the wheel. They don't even flinch. Whereas I'm turning my head, my body, even both to look here, there, blind spots, you name it.

I guess if you're a driver and you move around a lot, there's a greater chance you can throw something out of whack. More alarming is having a horrible posture that you do everyday in the car; your body will start to conform to that posture. You know, that posture where you have a low right shoulder, that arm on the gear shift, and the left shoulder high with that arm up on the steering wheel.

Coffee Prevents Liver Cancer

One big bonus is that coffee tends to have a diuretic effect. This is good because it flushes one out. With many it seems to flush things out both ways too. This is the body greeting rid of waste. With any disease process, these harmful waste products tend to build up. This takes the body well out of its equilibrium for an extended period of time, and allows a breakdown somewhere.

It helps to clean the kidneys out in the same fashion as well. You often hear about individuals doing a special kidney and liver cleanse which will include possibly some vitamins or minerals and a flushing out scenario.

Researchers in Italy discovered that coffee consumption appears to cut cancer risk by 40% and three cups per day may reduce it by 50%. Let me just say that coffee has always been a good thing, no matter what anyone says, packed with antioxidants, it does much more good than harm...

When I Gave Up Sugar...

A Study showed us that sugar is more addictive than cocaine and morphine. That's a bit scary, but if you think about the people you know who need their sugar fix.

Sugar is Involved in almost most disease processes, in fact cancer feeds on it. 
What about Diabetes? You can end type II by stopping sugar. Of course it's so addicting, many can't do that, they just take the medication.
 I myself stopped it in coffee so long ago I can't even remember when, nor do I like it in my morning cup.
Feel like you need that sugary snack; have a natural sugar or something else.  Maybe cheese, cold cuts, peanuts, carrots, celery...  
You probably weren't aware that we didn't normally have sweet dessert until well into 1600s...

I Have To Sleep Upright?

What do you suggest for my neck? I've seen a couple people who've Had to sleep with their head upright, whether it's to help an ear issue, heart burn problem, dizziness, etc... 

The best thing I've found is to use a travel pillow around the neck when sitting on a couch or chair. A recliner is the best because you can tilt back slightly.

The travel pillow I'm referring to is a u- shaped pillow. 

I know you've seen them at the airport or on the plane. Someone traveling on the plane is basically sitting upright or with a slight incline. That's where these pillows have become most popular. You can buy one last minute at the airport, but I would get it here.  I see people all the time with them attached to their luggage, carry-on- or belt...

Ear Flow With Aligning The Neck

Did you know that aligning the neck spine may help ear flow? Do you often feel like water gets stuck in your ear? Do you suffer or have you suffered from ear infections? Do you get ear PAIN? If you do then water may be getting stuck. 

When this happens you mat be poking and prodding the each leaving you a greater chance of pain or problems. When DD Palmer discovered the power of the first real chiropractic adjustment, it actually had to do with the ear. Talk about ear flow; a man by the name of Harvey Lillard had lost his hearing when an adjustment opened thing up, and he could hear again...

Think of the sinuses much the same way. If you have misalignments in the spine, more specifically the upper neck, The sinuses and sinus pathways won't be as open and free flowing as they should.

For me, I will often feel the ear channels open up when I do neck traction, putting the normal -C- alignment back in the neck.  Be careful not to jam was in the ear by pushing in further with a Q-tip.  If you have too, take a trip to your doctor's.  They can look in the ear with their scope to see if wax is blocking the passage.

Lastly, using a pillow like the traction pillow will not only help restore neck alignment, it will keep you from sleeping on a painful ear.
