Since beginning my care here at the Spinal Wellness Center, I have seen a significant increase in my overall strength as well as flexibility of my spine.
My posture has seen dramatic improvement, as well as surprisingly positive changes to my breathing and cardiovascular strength. I look forward to seeing what other changes may occur!

Chiropractic is the largest drugless health profession in the world. It is used by the large majority of professional athletes and celebrities.
It works by removing interference from the communication lines between the brain and the body (the Nervous System). We get to see miraculous changes in people every day we practice. Here are SOME success stories of the past few weeks:
– the 53 year old lawyer whose left arm and neck pain went away
– the 12 year old girl with Tourette’s syndrome whose tics have disappeared
– the 68 year old retired engineer with scoliosis, who drives here from 1 hour away. His lower back pain has almost completely resolved. He can walk and do yard work and is much more active. This is after 5 years of trying other alternative therapies!
– the 30-year old former Division I fullback and current police officer who feels so much better after 3 weeks here. This is after 6 months of care at 2 other chiropractic offices.
There are many more, but you get the picture!
This type of thing is happening in certified ABC™ offices around the English-speaking world. The science of effectively analyzing and correcting bodies is now available, but it might take another generation to become common knowledge.(see new ABC™ website given below.)
We are right here in Ithaca. Be a hero to someone you know and forward this newsletter on to him or her. Both of you will be glad you took the time to do so!

It’s happened again! It seems as if it often happens that some great practice member gets featured in the newspaper after they start care.
This time it is Caroline farmer Calvin Snow. Check out this nice Ithaca Journal story on one of our favorite practice members:
Are You Taking Any of These 11 Dangerous Cholesterol Drugs?
Watch an interview with Dr. Joseph Mercola on this subject:
Tens of millions of Americans are taking cholesterol-lowering drugs-mostly statins-and some “experts” claim that many millions more should be taking them.
Statins are HMG-CoA reductase inhibitors, that is, they act by blocking the enzyme in your liver that is responsible for making cholesterol (HMG-CoA reductase). The fact that statin drugs cause side effects is well established-there are now 900 studies proving their adverse effects, which run the gamut from muscle problems to increased cancer risk.
For starters, reported side effects include:
Muscle problems are the best known of statin drugs’ adverse side effects, but cognitive problems and memory loss are also widely reported. A spectrum of other problems, ranging from blood glucose elevations to tendon problems, can also occur. There is evidence that taking statins may even increase your risk for Lou Gehrig’s disease.
Statins currently available on the U.S. market are:

Optimizing Your Cholesterol Levels, Naturally
According to this article in the New York times, figuring out how we can say no to more and more medical testing may be the single toughest and most important task facing the people who will be in charge of carrying out referrals.
|Don’t Eat This After You Work Out!
The major “eating mistake” people make after they exercise, which throws their hard work out the window….

| Take the Pain out of Bee Stings!
The Sawyer Extractor is a great, inexpensive way to negate the effects of bee stings (and snake bites!) by suctioning out the venom so it appears on the skin as an amber droplet. No pain, no itching, no redness, and no swelling! Why didn’t we all learn about this years ago?
Every home and school should have one.
You can order online The Sawyer Extractor
