Reaching Your Golf Potential

There is a new way of reaching your golf potential without getting the latest golf equipment or taking countless hours of golf instruction. What, I am talking about is a new Chiropractic technique called Koren Specific Technique (KST). Why is this technique different from other Chiropractic care and how will this help your golf game?
KST is different because a person is adjusted in the position of misalignment or discomfort. With traditional Chiropractic care a person is adjusted face down, face up, left side up, right side up, but often the person’s problem or discomfort occurs when they are standing or in a position other than lying down. This is very important because often a misalignment can be observed only in a certain posture or position. For instance, a golfer who is having discomfort during their backswing can be adjusted while in the backswing stance. (more…)

If It’s Not Broke, Don’t Fix It

This saying may be a humorous one but there is a good deal of insightful truth behind it. We all laugh at the antics of the main character on the television sitcom, Home Improvement, who is always trying to improve upon some appliance that is already working perfectly. His disastrous results should be a lesson to us of the danger of trying to make something that is already working just fine, work better. Fortunately for us, we rarely think we have the expertise to fool around with some complicated piece of
machinery. We would be afraid to try to improve upon the inner workings of an electric dishwasher. Yet that very situation happens all the time relative to the human body. (more…)

Cancer

An interesting experiment was done some years ago at Ohio State Penitentiary. Volunteer convicts were purposely injected with cancer cells. The scientists wanted to see if they could promote cancer in an apparently healthy person. They found that those men who had a history of cancer, began to develop cancer again as a result of the implanted cancer cells. Tumors actively began to grow in these subjects and they had to be surgically removed from the convicts. Those results were not particularly surprising. What did come as a surprise to the researchers was that healthy prisoners, with no history of cancer did not develop cancer after the implantation of cancer cells. Within a few weeks every trace of cancer was gone. Their bodies apparently killed off all the cancer cells. A conclusion that could be drawn from this study is that the human body has the ability to destroy cancer cells within the body whether they are manufactured there are or introduced. (more…)
