Adrenal fatigue may be the problem

Adrenal fatigue, exhaustion or insufficiency, whatever you want to call it, refers to lowered adrenal function or output. Adrenal glands produce vital hormones that help our body handle stress. The adrenal glands secrete cortisol, epinephrine, norepinephrine, cortisone, aldosterone and DHEA, to name a few. When we sense a threat, our body automatically moves into a flight or fight response, causing adrenaline and cortisol to be secreted, which will elevate blood pressure and increase the release of glucose in the blood, preparing the body to run or fight or go into survival mode.

Poor memory

One of the most concerning public health challenges we face today is that of cognitive decline. According to the Alzheimer’s Association, deaths from Alzheimer’s have increased 145% since the year 2000, 1 in 3 seniors dies with Alzheimer’s or another disease, and it is estimated to have cost the nation $290 billion in 2019. Think about that for just a moment — 1 in 3 is a staggering number. What’s more concerning is that despite the 82% of seniors who consider it important to get cognitive checks, only 16% actually get regular cognitive assessments, thus depriving them of the chance to get ahead of the disease process. An ever increasing body of research is indicating the criticality of staying ahead of the disease process.

Both on a global scale and right here in our own local area many factors are at work to change the wine marketplace and influence pricing.

The complex health picture

With ever-increasing complexity in life, we learn to compartmentalize our life in an attempt to bring order to chaos. We have our spiritual life, family life, work life, social life, animal/pet life, recreational life and our health. Our health gets further compartmentalized into food, exercise, stress-relief, sleep, hydration, energy and disease-management. The disease-management is even further compartmentalized, or fractionalized, to all the specialty fields of medicine. We have a doctor for our joints, one for our heart, another for our digestive system, another for our emotional health, etc. Even within these specialties are sub-specialties! Wow! Is this wise?

What options do you have when back surgery fails?

I read a very interesting study recently and learned something new. Ever hear of FBSS? No? Me neither. It stands for failed back surgery syndrome. According to a paper in the Journal of Pain Research, up to 74.6% of low-back surgeries fail to completely relieve the pain. It is hard to believe that there is a medical name for this condition, failed back surgery syndrome, or FBSS for short. This condition refers to persistent pain following back surgery and the pain can be in your back, one of your legs, or both legs.

Re-entry center: Look hard at merits

Weighing in on the debate about whether or not Kootenai County should accept an Idaho Department of Correction re-entry center, I am on the “pro” side. As a teacher and administrator at Anchor House/Idaho Youth Ranch for 20 years working with troubled, traumatized youth, I am well aware of our community’s need for resources for persons young and old in the correctional system. We need to end our tendency to respond, “Not In My Backyard,” and consider the merits of the proposal.

2020 is the year of the rat according to the Chinese zodiac and it’s forecasted to be a strong, prosperous and lucky year for all. I share this merely as a fun tidbit to muse over as I am contemplating the mind-boggling advancements we humans have made over the course of several millennia. It is increasingly common to see doctors discussing the benefits of working collaboratively between numerous medical perspectives and recommending adjunct care, like acupuncture. In fact, the acupuncture practiced today is not entirely the same as what was practiced thousands of years ago. One of the advantages of practicing an ancient form of medicine is that we have had thousands of years to sort out what works and what doesn’t. Acupuncture and Chinese medicine have been constantly evolving with modern knowledge to integrate many incredibly insightful observations from millennia past with what is being discovered in cutting edge research. Perhaps more interestingly, modern research is continually making discoveries, some seemingly obscure, that can be explained by ancient theories of Chinese medicine.

How can you have a fair jury trial without witnesses?

The object of any trial under American law is to achieve an impartial and just result. In a trial in the judicial system, jurors take a solemn oath to render a true verdict “according to the law and evidence.” That would be practically impossible without sworn testimony from witnesses. Live testimony is important because of what the witness says, but also because of the manner in which the testimony is delivered. Observing the demeanor of a witness can be critical for the jury in determining his or her credibility.

TRUMP: The thing about advisers

The AP Zeke Miller article on Jan. 5 suggests Trump embraces more risk, doesn’t listen to advisers and is focused on short-term wins. As to listening to advisers: State Department bureaucrats and academic elites do not have a stellar track record. They argue Trump will set back negotiations with Palestine, yet they have not been successful for decades in resolving Middle East issues. A new approach is warranted. Trump is a problem solver and you do not solve problems by letting them fester as politicians and bureaucrats do. Contrary to State Department advice, moving the embassy to Jerusalem occurred without a hitch. Trump has opened a dialogue (a risk) with North Korea which has brought some hostages home.

The avalanche occurred in a recently opened part of the ski area where over 20 inches of new snow had fallen in two days.

Do you believe in chiropractic?

When someone finds out that I’m a chiropractor they usually tell me, “I believe in chiropractic.” I often wonder if they say that to their dentist or medical doctor. I believe in medicine or dental care. I highly doubt it, so why do they say that they believe in what I do? As we begin the new decade, why does this still happen? This profession of chiropractic has been around since 1895. So what leads people to still ask others if they believe in chiropractic? There is a growing list of research studies demonstrating the clinical effectiveness, safety and cost-effectiveness of chiropractic services. I thought I would add summaries from a few of these studies to help those of you that need it.

Eliminating pain without drugs

As addiction to pain medications is skyrocketing, many are looking for more natural ways to resolve pain. When pain doesn’t go away as it should, we need to ask WHY. We need to get to the root of it. Taking medications just masks the underlying problem. It may temporarily feel better, but the problem under the surface still exists. The best way to eliminate pain is to resolve the underlying cause of the pain and address the factors that are preventing it from resolving on its own.

SUPPLEMENTS: Mind MD's advice

The confused public faces a real dilemma when you consider the amount of money spent on vitamins and other chemical supplements. Part of the problem is created by articles, usually through advertisements, promoting the value of these items as an aid to healthy living. The recent advertisement in the Coeur d’Alene Press promoted massive doses of vitamins, especially vitamin C. The excess actually becomes a burden to the body requiring such organs as a kidney to eliminate the excess.

HOSPITAL: Questioning requests

Recently, I’ve received in the mail two requests from Kootenai Health for a donation (and inclusion to my will) to purchase additional medical equipment for their hospital. At the same time, Kootenai Health boasts in TV ads that they’ve “invested $130 million dollars in Northern Idaho.” With that much money to spend/invest, why are they soliciting individual donations from citizens for more medical equipment? It’s not as if they’re struggling financially.

Let's talk about what ails the public education system

One of the first lessons we learn as small children is: Honesty is the best policy. Yet, in 2019, my unvarnished assessment of public schools — that government shouldn’t be in the education business — wound up being the quote that lit the media’s collective hair on fire. I also said that public schools are exceptionally good at indoctrination and teaching socialism. Several Idaho media pundits used it to ridicule me and record their personal outrage. How dare anyone question the existence of government-run schools, especially Wayne Hoffman, to whom people might listen?

A challenge for the New Year

It’s that time of year again. Time to dust off the old journal, set some goals and once again test your mettle by trying to stick to a new habit, regimen or routine for as long as possible. Forgive me for sounding pessimistic. I am not at all against new year’s resolutions as long as their fundamental purpose — doing something positive for yourself — isn’t overshadowed by a sense of obligatory goal setting. Accomplishing your goal will be more rewarding and achievable if you choose something that really speaks to you. Perhaps you would like to be more organized, feel more resilient and composed under stress, get out of pain or tackle another health challenge, or maybe you are looking to start exercising and eating better. The best way to ensure your success is to set yourself up with as many intrinsic motivators, checkpoints and team members as possible to make it happen.
