Kacelia Technology will Amaze You: another exciting day added!

I have for years been fascinated by the effects of poor posture on our total health. Research confirms that posture misalignments force our body to compensate in order to function which results in a myriad of maladies.  I learned in my own life that discipline alone can’t keep the shoulders back, head up or hips even. Last December I attended a nutrition convention in Orlando and found the answer to retraining the whole body on vastly improving total posture. I met Dr Evelyn Zuehlke-Haworth and her husband Kelly. Dr Zuehike-Haworth  invented a system referred to as “Kacelia true align body system”. This is an at home treatment that takes only 30 minutes and offers tremendous results quickly.  I actually gained one inch of height in my first session! The Kacelia system was designed by Dr Zuehilke-Haworth. It comes with step-by-step instructions for the patient to use to ensure proper setup at home. The body is supported face down at key points, allowing gravity to exert a gentle downward pressure encouraging the sacroiliac, spinal, shoulder and TMJ joints to be stretched and shaped to an improved biomechanical position. I had the special opportunity to experience the power of this simple looking device during my convention trip and must say I was highly impressed with my results.  You can watch the link to the show, ‘The Doctors” where they demonstrate the Kacelia to learn how it works.

THE IMPORTANCE OF GOOD POSTURE

There are three healthy normal curves, when we look at a spine from the side view. The neck should curve forward, forming the cervical lordosis. The thoracic, upper and mid back area should have a kyphosis curving backward, but not excessively. The lower back should curve forward, forming the lumbar lordosis. It is not hard to envision how an “S” shape is “springy” while a straight or “C” shaped spine causes improper weight bearing. Faulty biomechanics caused by bad posture results in back and neck pain, inflexibility, and impaired function. Many factors can contribute to developing poor posture like bad habits while sitting, standing or sleeping. Excessive sitting will cause the soft tissues in the front of the body to shorten resulting in a “C” configuration that puts abnormal pressure on the spinal discs and joints. As a rule we reach forward much more than backward to counter balance, contributing to this problem. Slouching while sitting or standing causes the thoracic kyphosis to increase, and the shoulders to stump forward. This causes pressure on the internal organs, impedes breathing and circulation, and can result in feeling down and fatigued. A very important part of this unhealthy postural pattern is “Forward Head Posture” FHP. This results in a flattening or even reversing of the normal cervical lordosis causing improper pressure on the cervical discs and joints. The body reacts to this irritation and provokes it to form fibrotic scar tissue and calcification to try to fortify the area resulting in arthritis.

A Little Known Cold and Flu Remedy

In 1928 Richard Simmons M.D. Hypothesized that the virus enters the body through the ear canal. German researchers had great success using hydrogen peroxide for the treatment of colds and flus in 1938. They found that once the germ enters the inner ear they start multiplying and spread to the rest of the body. It’s a good “rule of thumb” to keep your fingers out of your ears to reduce the odds of exposure. Unfortunately the virus is airborne and can still enter the ear.   The treatment entails using a dropper to put a few drops of 3% hydrogen peroxide into the top ear with the head tilted to one side. After two or three minutes drain the ear with a tissue, and repeat on the other side. This should be done as soon as possible when symptoms arise and will be effective 80% of the time. It’s normal for the hydrogen peroxide to bubble and sometime cause some mild stinging. The 3% hydrogen peroxide solution is readily available at most drugstores and is perfectly safe for infants and...

Symptom Relief

PAIN AND STIFFNESS OF THE NECK, UPPER, MIDDLE, AND LOWER BACK The Tru-Align stretches the spine forward and apart. With repeated use, this encourages misaligned vertebrae to adjust into place, and the disc spaces to increase.  This combination reduces pressure on the nerves.  Trigger points which are tender knots in the muscles made up of lactic acid (a waste product left over after the muscle burns energy), are also dissolved. When there is pressure on the nerve, the muscles react by “splinting” or “guarding”, tensing up to protect the area.  This increases lactic acid production, and when the body reaches overload, painful trigger points are formed.  The forward stretching of the spine is passive extension that, not only stretches the muscles and discs apart, but also ends up limbering where the muscles attach to the bones.  This is a form of “passive motion therapy”, which causes the stiff scar tissue attachments to become more elastic, resulting in better flexibility and range of motion. SHOULDER PAIN When there is a traumatic injury to the shoulder, scar tissue is formed to repair and fortify.  Unfortunately, the tissues have a tendency to heal short, and because the natural tendency for the shoulder to roll forward, shoulder extension becomes limited, and the entire shoulder complex, (including the scapula or “wing bone”, loses flexibility.  When motion is limited like this, the muscles constrict.  The body responds to these improper biomechanics by sending in scar tissue to the muscular attachments, and calcium to fortify the bones, resulting in arthritis.  The shoulder is passively extended by the Tru-Align, encouraging the joints of the shoulder to limber...

Decreased Joint Mobility

There are many factors that can be involved in limiting the normal range of motion of a joint. Among them are scar tissue, inflammation, pinched nerves, muscle spasm or misalignment of the joint.

Scar Tissue

When the soft tissues of the body suffer an injury, scar tissue is formed to repair the damaged area. Scar tissue is primarily comprised of two types of fibers: Fibrin and elastin. Fibrin or fibrinogen are stiff, non-stretchy, brittle tissue. While elastin is elastic and stretchy. It stands to reason that the more elastin there is in the scar that is formed, the more resilient and similar to the original, non-injured tissue it is. This is one of the reasons that it is so important to do mobilizing physical therapy after an injury or surgery. Inducing movement while the body is repairing the area encourages more elastin fibers to be formed in the scar tissue. Stiff inelastic scar tissue from from an old injury can be rehabilitated. There are several techniques available to reform and cause the tissue to lay down more...

Trigger Points

When a muscle spasm is severe and lasts for an extended period of time, trigger points can develop, especially in areas where the muscle is under enormous pressure. Trigger points, called “ouch points” in Chinese medicine, occur where there is an accumulation of lactic acid trapped in a consolidated area of the muscle. When a muscle burns energy, it makes lactic acid as a waste product that under normal circumstances gets flushed out and carried out of the body through urine. When the muscle is under constant tension, it is producing elevated amounts of lactic acid, in turn making it harder for the body to dispose of it. Trigger points can be felt in muscles as tender, dense rounded bumps, ranging from very small to the size of a grapefruit. It is not surprising that when a waste product gets stuck in muscle tissue, it becomes an irritant and generally results in...

Muscle Spasms

Muscle spasms are varied in their intensity. They can be felt as an annoying stiffness, all the way to feeling like a spiked claw is grabbing the muscle. Muscle spasms can be constant or intermittent and are usually triggered by a “wrong” move. Traumatic injuries from falls, sports, overdoing it at work, exercise or play and car accidents are a few ways to trigger such a spasm. Performing extreme physical activity, not warming up or cooling down properly, lifting or pulling something too heavy, or any other “what was I thinking?” moment can trigger muscle spasms. These situations are considered “acute”, meaning a fresh injury with a sudden onset that usually is resolved quickly. In acute injuries there is usually swelling, inflammation and pain accompanying muscle spasms (please consult the chapter on Hot and Cold Therapy). In other instances symptoms can persist for longer periods of time, these are classified as “chronic” muscle spasms. Seemingly benign causes like drafts, the chills, dehydration or a decrease in necessary minerals can cause muscle spasms. Stress oftentimes can be the culprit as well and usually is an aggravating factor. When we are feeling stressed, it’s only natural to tense up our muscles, especially in the neck or shoulders. Sometimes our whole body can be too stiff, causing a normally safe move to trigger a...

TMJ and Bruxism

Bruxism is when you clench (tightly hold your top and bottom teeth together) or grind (slide your teeth back and forth over each other) your teeth. People can clench and grind without being aware of it during both the day and night, although sleep-related bruxism is often the bigger problem because it is harder to control. The cause of bruxism is not completely agreed upon, but daily stress may be the trigger in many people. Some people probably clench their teeth and never feel symptoms. Clenching the teeth puts pressure on the muscles, tissues, and other structures around your jaw. The symptoms can cause temporomandibular joint problems...

Headaches

The brain does not have any pain receptors. Headaches can be caused by pain sensitive areas of the head and neck: Cranium or Periostium of the skull Muscles Nerves Arteries and Veins Subcutaneous Tissues Eyes Ears Sinus Mucus Membranes According to the International Headache Society, there are over 200 types of headaches. For more information google Dr. Lawrence Robbins Headache Clinic in Chicago. Misalignment and muscle spasms of the upper cervical spine can cause pressure on nerves that cause headaches. Whiplash-type injuries and bad postural habits are common causes of disrupted cervical curves. Restoring the normal cervical lordosis can alleviate headaches, migraines, sinus pressure, disc problems, pinched nerves, and neck pain and...
