A New Business, And Cold, Cold, Cold!

Hello all.

I hope you're having an exciting new year. Mine is...shall we

Cold, Cold, Cold

Don from Australia sent me this news article.

Severely Injured Miami Gymnast Walks Out Of Hospital

I had heard of this but this was the first news article I had seen on the topic.

As you know, I am a HUGE proponent of Icing pain and injury. When done right, it can be very effective at reducing inflammation and pain. That's for tendonitis related issues.

The article above is about an athlete with a spinal cord trauma that would have left him a parapalegic. Rushed to the hospital he was basically treated with COLD.

This reduced swelling on the spinal cord, which alleviated other factors that end up causing damage and paralysis.

What the article doesn't tell you is that you have to put the patient into a coma (because they're so cold for so long it would be traumatic) and give them meds for side effects of that and keep a constant eye on them. So it's not a simple thing, necessarily.

But the athlete walked out of the hospital, instead of being paralyzed for life.

This is an example of how powerful cold can be at combating the side effects of injury: The process of inflammation and swelling and the damage that causes.

Lucky for anybody with Tendonitis, we don't need to put you into a coma. We don't need to give you meds or keep you under near constant surveillance.

We just need to apply cold the RIGHT way. If you're not already familiar with it, learn how here: How To Reduce Inflammation

A New Focus On Disc Injury

You may or may not know that the last 3-4 years I've been blessed with the experience of a ruptured disc L5-S1. On one hand, it has been very unpleasant and a significant limitation on my life. On the other hand, everything is a learning opportunity.

And I've learned a lot.

I will continue to work on and grow to help as many people as I possibly can with the information provided there.

Over the years it's become -really- clear to me that Tendonitis is something that, for the vast majority of us, we can fix ourselves.

Bad degenerative and bulging and ruptured disc problems...not so much. We can manage it ourselves, but FIXING it requires help.

And in my own search to find a fix, I've found it. And recently I've put a lot of money into acquiring it, for myself, and to provide results for others.

I'm living in Sacramento California now. And I've just opened an office specifically to work on people with disc pain and problem.

3 years of pain and limitation totally gone in 15 minutes? Yep.

For me it lasted a full 20 days before neighboring tightness started tightening things down again. Not bad for 15 minutes. And that was just my first session.

I'm getting my office set up, and working on a new website that's not ready for release yet. Busy busy.

If you know anybody that's committed to fixing their disc problem, please point them to me. First eval and session is always free. I promise you that Sacramento isn't to far to go for rapid recovery.

I'm excited to keep going forward. I hope you are too.
