BLESSINGS: Carters and Kennedy

In the September issue of Time magazine was an article about former President Jimmy Carter and his wife that amazed me! At the age of 93 and his wife at 91, they work building and remodeling houses. They don’t sit in comfortable chairs and watch TV like I do at 82; they get up and go to work! They both are an example of what America is made of and what we should be doing as Americans. God bless them.

SOUZA: Return to Senate

I would encourage voters in November 2018 to vote for Mary Souza (R) for Idaho State Senate District 4. She received an A rating from the NRA. Her opponent, Cory Jane English (D), a progressive liberal, received an F grade from the National Rifle Association. The choice is clear.

KAVANAUGH: The fuzzy past

This attack on Brett Kavanaugh’s character, over an alleged incident that is 36 years old, at a time and place unknown, by an accuser who, according to The New York Times, said that the incident at a party happened, but it might not have been Brett Kavanaugh, it could have been someone else. So, where, when and who are the unknowns? But, for self-righteous Democrats, that’s plenty of ammunition to block a conservative Supreme Court nominee. How pathetic.

SCHROEDER: For state House

Rebecca Schroeder is running for the Idaho state Legislature in district four. Rebecca’s son Brady was born 11 years ago with Cystic Fibrosis. After having doors closed to her at the state and national levels, she became a spokesperson for CF research. She understands firsthand the lack of access to health care and how it can impact any family. She has worked diligently to get the Medicaid Expansion initiative on the November ballot. She has reached out to those in the community, relentlessly knocking on doors. I hope that you will both vote for her this fall and join in her campaign at rebeccaforidaho.com.

COMICS: BCN rules!

I have been a subscriber to The Press for 10 years since we moved here and am an avid follower of certain comics. I regretted when you eliminated the comic with the policeman and the south African connection several years ago (I forget the name). It was sensitive, multiracial and sweet. Then I think we had Phoebe and her Unicorn which left me unimpressed. Then you substituted Wallace the Brave, which is also uninteresting for me, but some may like it. This runs all seven days. “Nancy” leaves me totally cold.

HISTORY: Honor local legacies

My family has lived in Coeur d’Alene since 1936. Unlike many other communities across the country, this community has shown little interest in preserving the buildings of the past. Other towns and cities have used their past and their old buildings to help stimulate their local economy and emphasize their uniqueness. Do we risk becoming a generic town with shining new tin sheds and boxy brick buildings? Such disregard for these ties to our past do have permanent harm to the unity and cohesion of the community. Many of us can remember some of those buildings that were torn down, their unique architecture and how their existence today might fit our present day needs. What is progress? Recently developers have upgraded the Elks and Wiggets, Bravo!

Way too commonly people are full of hot air. That air may come out your mouth in the way of belching or burping, or out your back end as gas or flatulence (and a few other nicknames). Although a minor amount of gas is normal, there comes a time when the excess build-up is not only uncomfortable, but an indication that something is wrong in your digestive tract.

Hip pain: Solutions for relief

Hip pain is common in all ages and it can begin for a variety of reasons. Below are three of the most common conditions that contribute to hip pain. For many adults, arthritis can cause aching pain as the joint begins to wear down over time. It affects women at a higher rate than men. Hip joint arthritis doesn’t only cause pain in the hip, but causes pain into the thigh and groin area. This often leads to swelling or stiffness in the hip and upper leg, resulting in a loss of range of motion. Another common cause of hip pain is tendinitis, which usually occurs from overuse of muscles in the hip. This typically happens in younger athletic individuals who participate in running, lifting, kicking sports or dance.

TAX PLAN: Burden for the young

For decades the Republican Party has touted the need for fiscal restraint and a balanced budget. In reality, even with a Republican majority in Congress, their new tax plan has added $820 billion to our nation’s debt in a period of only 11 months. One percent of our population controls 52% of our nation’s wealth; that number is certainly not going to decrease. The President and Congress will point to the economy and the low unemployment rate; however, when you spend a trillion dollars more than you receive in revenue, in one year, the economy should be rosy. Congress should have listened to Warren Buffet’s advice.

Local Republicans did the right thing getting rid of Commissioner Eberlein. His view of 95% of us would fall under the category of “Deplorables.” How else would you justify charging working families double the normal property tax because they didn’t sign a one-page form? Claiming the state requires “undue hardship” is clearly ambiguous enough to say that everyone qualifies.

If it was just feeling hot, that would be one thing. We all get too hot at various times of our lives. But hot flashes are different. Many times they are also associated with feeling sick or flu-like just before the onset. It is generally localized and intense in the face, chest or even legs, and it’s difficult to cool down.

All of them have spent the summer months fast asleep, waiting for the summer heat and dryness to dissipate so they may rule the earth … or at least the spray zones, seeps, rocks and vegetation alongside our local streams, rivers and lakes. Thankfully these 2- to 2.4-inch long predators are not after us, but the insects, snails, worms, millipedes, mites and spiders they’re after had better watch out, for they are on the menu!

So I’m asking us to be civil and to treat people like we’d like to be treated. Simple? YES!

The Senators on either side like to grandstand with questions they know the nominee either will not or should not answer. The highly-coached nominee gives scripted non-answers to the occasional pertinent question that is highly relevant and should in good conscience be answered.

Decompression therapy vs. traction for neck, low back pain

You may be wondering what the difference is between spinal traction and spinal decompression. The main difference is the advanced technology behind spinal decompression, which has shown to lead to better results. With traction, there is only a static pull on the spine. For example, if traction is set at 50 pounds, then it pulls at 50 pounds. Regular traction systems used by many practitioners only pull on the spine at a pre-set rate and force. This results in a stretch of the spine, joints and soft tissue. After a few minutes of traction your body says, “Hey, I’m being stretched,” and it creates a reflex in the surrounding muscles, resulting in tightening or spasms.

WHY am I sick?

If a tree in your yard or a flower in your garden suddenly died or was sick, would you just chop it down or pluck it out and throw it away, or would you take it somewhere (such as the University of Idaho Extension Office Master Gardener Clinic) to find out WHY it is sick or dying and try to rescue it? If your car stopped running or was making some horrible sound, would you just take it to a junkyard and dispose of it, or would you take it to a mechanic for a diagnostic workup? Would you be happy if they just duct-taped it together and said you’re good to go? If not, why do that to your body? The number one question you should always be asking is “WHY?”

I was given the options of disposing the body in a woods or hauling same to the transfer station.

Want to improve your flexibility? Learn how…

As adults, we tend to lose a lot of our natural flexibility as the years pass by. Although it’s annoying, it’s a natural part of the aging process.

In order to help reduce the frequency of these symptoms, it is important to maintain flexibility. Below are tips for maintaining or increasing your range of motion as you age and protecting your quality of life for years to come.

Brain fog - brain smog

Brain fog is an increasing concern for many people. Definitions for brain fog vary a bit, but for the most part it includes the following: mental cloudiness, feeling like a veil is over the brain, forgetfulness, being easily distracted or difficulty concentrating, mild confusion, sometimes you have to stop for your brain to “engage,” easily overwhelmed, getting lost easily, forgetting where you put things, difficulty following directions or following a line of thought, temporary disorientation, etc. It is common with certain illnesses, such as “fibro-fog” associated with fibromyalgia. It is also associated with several classes of medications, with insomnia or sleep deprivation for any reason, with autoimmune diseases and much more. The gist of it is that your brain feels like it is cloudy. This is different from dementia, which several of the above symptoms can also be associated with.

However, physical therapy, occupational therapy or speech therapy, are life-changing when it comes to preventing long-term physical impairments and overall well-being during oncology care.

However that being said, it doesn’t mean it’s being done in the best way for your body. Just because you have golfed, water skied, and biked for 10 years doesn’t mean you are doing it right.

FA LA LA and HO HO HO, ‘Tis the season for great joy, right? Not stress, presents, no working out, money talks and families fussing. How should we spend this Holiday season? I say the twelve days of Christmas need to be easier not more complicated. Tailored to your families needs and not some idea cooked up online or in a magazine. I mean I like Norman Rockwell, Carl Larsson, Thomas Kincaid, and Greg Olsen’s beautiful Christmas pictures and the feelings they evoke but not the guilt and pressure that might come with it. You see the ultimate holidays was meant to bring families and friends together, not with the pressure of perfection but with the pleasure of the moments shared. It isn’t about the house being perfect, the lights outside, the decorations and the food. Although I sure like all that, but it is about the laughter, the joy and the memories created that will fuel us through the next year. So let’s get you moving and add some mind body health to our lives.

Healthy kingdom: 6 habits

Oh, so you wish for a healthy, kingdom? I know the feeling, with children, parents and responsibilities that line the castle wall, sometimes I think the king and queen will never find time to make healthy choices. How will they choose wisely when they are trying to storm the castle, slay the dragons and look lovely for the kingdom?

Oral Cancer Awareness: There's no crying in baseball

Cancer continues to touch so many lives of the people I know and love. Oral cancer in particular has touched my families life for the past 14 years, so I wanted to share some things to increase awareness, as early detection and prevention is the key. Of course that doesn’t mean the outcomes are always successful, but oral cancer needs to be talked about and understood.

Race for life

Early morning is always peaceful to me in North Idaho, and no one was out Sunday morning on my way driving to the Coeur d’Alene Race for the Cure. I had my car loaded with items for our booth, and I don’t know what happened or what started it, but a wave of emotion poured over me and I started to tear up.

Simple, do any where, relaxation techniques

Winter is often long and challenging here in the great northwest but everyone keeps their sanity by heading outside for lots of winter activities. I love it, there is no better life. Along with the fun of all of that, however;is the fact that we often over schedule ourselves and we end up needing simple ways to take care of ourselves.

Pelvic Health: Body balance after baby

A new baby, there is nothing better! Snuggling them, loving them and nurturing them becomes your new life. Suddenly the aches and pains of pregnancy and delivery are forgotten. But don’t kid yourself this is no little feat that your body just went through to make this precious new addition. Your body goes through an amazing transformation to make your baby and if you are nursing them, you will still have hormones in your body after the birth of the baby. No wonder your body seems a little bit different or odd in its behavior. No wonder you have stiff shoulders, a cranky back or hips that pop around when you move. Maybe your bladder is a little leaky with laughing, sneezing or coughing. Maybe you have pain with intercourse or are completely disinterested in sex at all. Maybe you are constantly constipated after baby and you are wondering why because you never were before. Well we know what it’s like and you are not alone.

Pain: Body-self neuromatrix

What happens in our body to elicit pain when we slip on the ice, take a fall while skiing or get diagnosed with a chronic disease like fibromyalgia? Pain is described as a physical discomfort or some type of suffering caused by illness or injury. We may have always thought of pain as purely subjective, meaning each of us might describe the pain differently, from a fall down the stairs or a crash on our sled. Some might describe the pain as a stiffness with a dull or achy feeling. Others might say it is sharp, shooting or incapacitating in nature.

Health care and customer service

Recently a dear friend of mine, who has cancer and Lymphedema issues asked me to speak with another health care provider who works for a large hospital system in California, regarding her care plan. For approximately 30 minutes I navigated message machines, two people who tried to be helpful and then finally I found myself having to leave a long message on an answering machine at a Lymphedema center. All that and I never even spoke to anyone personally in that center. Now a whole week later no one has even called me back.

T'was the night before

When I was little I loved the magic of the poem “The Night Before Christmas.” My parents had a well-worn book that had beautiful illustrated pictures and they would read it to me each Christmas season. As soon as I could read it myself I would slowly read each page and get lost in my imagination. I would pretend that St. Nicholas was coming to my house in Maryland, landing on our roof with his reindeers and sneaking in my living room to deliver the “goods.” I would wait up as long as I could to try to get a peek of him. I wanted to know him. I wanted to watch him make his delivery. I wanted to see if he was really “jolly.” I wanted to believe. I wanted to believe in something bigger and better than anything I’d ever known.

Ask yourself, are you tough enough?

I don’t know about you, but sometimes I wonder if I am tough enough? This time of year especially I think I get awfully contemplative about what it takes to be tough enough to tackle the new year. Tough enough to do what it takes to live my life according to my values. Tough enough to challenge myself to do the best with my God given abilities. Tough enough to weather the storms of life with my heart intact and dancing in my feet.

Healthy New Year

I love this time of the year! I like the idea of closing the door to the last year and choosing to walk in the open door of the New Year. To me, there is nothing better than a chance to make “new healthy lifestyle choices,” because what else do you and I have but our health?

Christmas relaxation

Relaxation is a necessary part of life in order to be well. It heals the soul, boots creativity and helps you get down to business with what needs to be taken care of in your life. What is so interesting is that I’m not talking about watching TV or cruising on Pinterest as a way of relaxing. I’m talking about true “unwinding” where you tune out the world and tune into your bodies needs. In Eastern medicine this is called meditation but most of us in the Western world are too inpatient to do this type of relaxation. In fact, we fight it because we see it as not very productive. What do you have to show for yourself when you are done?

What is your inspiration?

I have had the amazing opportunity to be a medical facilitator volunteer with an incredible national organization called “Casting for Recovery.” This organization takes 14 Breast cancer survivors, from our geographical region of northern Idaho and eastern Washington, on a 3 day experiential fly fishing trip to facilitate healing of not only the body, but the mind. Participants apply online, and are randomly selected to attend. Each year it is held in a different area. Last year we were at the Flying B Ranch in Kamiah, and this year we will be on Lake Coeur d’Alene.

Get balanced

Do you ever feel out of balance? Do you ever wonder why so much pain and suffering happens to those we love and care for and ourselves? The body self craves balance. It will go to great lengths to signal us when it is out of balance. We will show up with migraine headaches, back pain, knee and shoulder aches and often the inability to get a good night sleep. There may be numbness and tingling in your arm or even swelling in your legs. These physical symptoms are real and it is a warning that the system lacks homeostasis. The body self is saying to you in a very loud voice, “Something needs to change, soon.” I don’t mean for you to quit your job or your commitments to your life, but you may need a serious overhaul and rethinking of your value system and your body self.

Oncology and physical therapy care

The role of rehabilitation and specifically, physical therapy rehabilitation, during cancer care is often not understood. The patient has so much they are facing each day, that the last thing they want to do is go to one more appointment. However, physical therapy, occupational therapy or speech therapy are life changing when it comes to preventing long-term physical impairments and overall well-being during oncology care.
