Yeah I'm quite aware that this will certainly not be a miracle cure (they say it themselves) to all my health troubles, but at least I will (might) benefit from it regarding healing processes of the body and overall health. It can go in the mix of various health approaches, such as proper diet, lifestyle, exercising, good sleep, etc...

I've been to osteopaths some times, but chiropractic actually sounds like something worth trying out. I wonder however if at least one of the osteopaths I previously consulted wasn't also a trained chiropractor. Will look into it.

I agree with Van.

I lean forward also and I went to a chiro for quite awhile which did nothing that I can notice. I go to a functional movement chiro now and it is amazing how he corrects problems. It usually hurts like the devil but it sure fixes me up. My wife goes to him also occasionally. We call it the "Torture Chamber". ;)

Essentially it seems that he is doing what a rolfer does, in that over time our poor posture results in muscles lodging themselves in bad spots and after awhile they stick to each other make proper movement difficult. He simply figures out the offending muscles and massages them very deeply unsticking them which allows them to move to their proper position.

Whatever he is doing it works.

BTW like Van I do a variety of things like; bike a lot, Yoga, Tai Chi, and his list also.

If you do no physical activity regularly, you can spend what you like on whatever treatment you like, but it is a waste of money IMO.

I have heard of this particular adjustment before, and think it has merit.    What does seem like a used car sales pitch is that it can correct all.  If you have poor posture etc.,, it's too easy to want a magic bullet that will correct your condition.  Chiropractors seem to promise this.   I myself work on my posture, check in with my breathing, stretch and do yoga, weight train, roll on pneumatic balls to stretch my spine, and hang from bars... the list goes on.  But modern man sitting at a computer like I am now (not squatting) and living a mostly sedentary life will lead to the need to do more than just merely go to a chiropractor once a month or week or even every day.     But having said all that,, please let us know if you do get yours adjusted and what changes you notice, or don't notice.

Health / Atlas vertebra correction
« Last post by JeuneKoq on Today at 04:37:35 am »
To cut it short, the Atlas vertebra correction is a process in which your atlas vertebra is put back to it's right place with the use of a vibration device.
The Atlas vertebra is the first vertebra of your body. It supports your head, hence the name Atlas, a figure in Greek mythology who supports the world on his shoulders.  Most people have it more or less unaligned, and this might be the cause of several health problems such as migraines, neck pain, chronic fatigue, idiopathic scoliosis, tilted pelvis, one leg feeling longer than the other, etc...
The vibration device untightens specific muscles and tendons in the neck, enabling the Atlas to go back to it's natural position. Only one session is needed, though you will probably get one or two check-ups later. Because nerves and muscles get unblocked after the Atlas is realigned, it is said that the body's natural healing capacity expresses itself more fully. Some people will find that the health problems they once suffered from, previously caused by the misalignment, tend to disappear over time. Back pain disappears, so does neck pain, less headaches, realigned spine, better posture, possible detox effect...

Here's a website in English that will probably explain it better than me:

And here's some videos:

Gentle Upper Cervical "Atlas" Spinal Correction



I am thinking about correcting my Atlas, mostly because my head and shoulders tend to lean forward (poor posture). I also have light scoliosis, chronic fatigue, and some form of depression which could be at least partially due to biological factor, as opposed to psychological.

What are your thoughts on the Atlas vertebra correction?
Has anyone ever gotten their Atlas realigned before, and could testify to it's effectiveness?
Do you think it's a safe and natural thing to do, realigning it, knowing that most people on this planet have it unaligned?
Do you have an idea what could be the origin, or the cause of almost everybody having their Atlas vertebra misaligned? (I'm open to any suggestion, but know that I will be most dubious of surrealistic explanations such as alien engineering, Illuminati ect...)

They just stay like that in the 1st two pics, in the last one I raised them with a spoon.

Does everything look good to you ?

I'm not familiar with that type of fermentation set-up, with the ingredients exposed to air in a wide bowl, so I really can't comment.

Perhaps the president will finally stop listening to the neocons and interventionists whose recommendations have gotten us into this mess in the first place! Here’s a strategy: just come home.

What is “home”? Where is it? Where are the boundaries of “home”?

We are a nomadic species and therefore our home is the whole planet. Sure, mistakes have been done and we have now to deal with the consequences of those mistakes — the first mistake being to use the fire, especially for cooking. The next ones were to grow crops, settle in a place called “home”, identify oneself to a national group and to a dogmatic religious faith.

Nobody has a suitable fix to the mess we are in, not even Mr. Ron Paul.

Obama Has No Middle East Strategy? Good!



Written byRon Paul

Sunday August 31, 2014



 Last week President Obama admitted that his administration has not worked out a strategy on how to deal with the emergence of the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) as a dominant force in the Middle East. However, as ISIS continues its march through Syria and Iraq, many in the US administration believe it is, in the words of Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel, a threat “beyond anything we have ever seen.”
 
 Predictably, the neocons attacked the president’s speech. They believe the solution to any problem is more bombs and troops on the ground, so they cannot understand the president’s hesitation.
 
 Chairman of the House Armed Services Committee Buck McKeon made it clear that fighting ISIS is going to cost a lot more money and will bring US forces back to Iraq for the third time. The post-Iraq, post-Afghanistan peace dividend disintegrates.

Mr. McKeon said last week:
ISIS is an urgent threat and a minimalist approach, that depends solely on FY15 funding or pinprick strikes that leave fragile forces in Iraq and Syria to do the hard fighting, is insufficient to protect our interests and guarantee our safety in time.
 
What does this mean in practice? If the neocons have their way, the Federal Reserve will “print” more money to finance another massive US intervention in the Middle East. In reality this means further devaluation of the US dollar, which is a tax on all Americans that will hit the poorest hardest.

A new US military incursion will not end ISIS; it will provide them with the recruiting tool they most crave, while draining the US treasury. Just what Osama bin Laden wanted!
 
 McKeon and the other hawks act as if they had only recently become aware of the ISIS. Or if they noticed it, they pretend US policy had nothing to do with its rise.
 
 McKeon also said last week, “ISIS threat was allowed to build and fester over a period of time.”
 
 In fact, US regime change policy in Syria was directly responsible for the rise of ISIS over these past three years. As journalist Eric Margolis observed recently, the emergence of ISIS is the “mother of all blowback.” The neocons who want us to get tougher on ISIS, including a US attack on Syria, are the same ones who not long ago demanded that we support groups like ISIS to overthrow the Assad government in Syria. US-trained and funded “moderates” from the Free Syrian Army joined the Islamist militias including ISIS, taking US weapons and training with them.
 
 Three years of supporting any force that might overthrow the secular government of President Assad has produced a new monster in the Middle East that neocons insist the US must slay.
 
 Why can’t they just admit they were wrong? Why can’t the interventionists just admit that their support for regime change in Syria was a terrible and tragic mistake?
 
 If ISIS is as big a threat as they claim, why can’t they simply ask Assad to help out? Assad has never threatened the United States; ISIS has. Assad has been fighting ISIS and similar Islamist extremist groups for three years.
 
 Why does the US government insist on aligning with theocracies in the Middle East? If there is anything that contradicts the US Constitution and American values it is a theocratic government. I do not believe that a majority in the Middle East wants to live under such a system, so why do we keep pushing it on them? Is that what they call promoting democracy?
 
 A lack of strategy is a glimmer of hope. Perhaps the president will finally stop listening to the neocons and interventionists whose recommendations have gotten us into this mess in the first place! Here’s a strategy: just come home.

Sure. Cooked broths always left me with a heavy feeling in my gut. No discomfort beyond this, just a heavy feeling. I don't get this with fermented versions.
Thanks, Eric.

I am making my first raw bone/vegi broth. It is OK to uncover the bowl cover and rearrange the contents during the fermentation process, right?
