STRETCHES AND EXERCISES TO EASE PAIN

In his book Live Pain Free, Lee Albert NMT gives symptoms and common causes, information on a supportive life style, and stretches and exercise appropriate for many types of pain, including hip pain, knee pain, low back pain, neck and shoulder pain, plantar fasciitis, tennis elbow, thoracic outlet syndrome, upper body pain, headache, and fibromyalgia.

Albert says that the main cause of pain in the body is muscle imbalance. Some muscles are too short and others are too long. Both feel tight. Since every muscle is attached to a bone, these muscle imbalances can pull bones out of alignment. Misalignment of the skeletal structure can cause compression of the nerves, discs, and other structures of the body including fascia. These twists, compressions, and tight muscles lead to less oxygen in the tissues, which cause a good deal of the pain. He says that pelvic imbalances are at the root of many painful conditions.

He gives four stretches to balance the pelvis, three for the neck, and exercises and stretches for the shoulders, chest, arms and hands, hips and buttocks, inner thighs, and lower legs. He stresses that all stretches and exercises be done gently and to make sure that you are well hydrated, because the lack of adequate water can increase pain.


 A SHORT EXERCISE TO INCREASE LYMPH FLOW

Health Means offered a free on-line Lymphatic Rescue Summit on June 13-19, 2022. One of the presentations was given by Perry Nickelston, DC. Dr. Nickelston spoke on how to help the lymphatic system get rid of the garbage it collects. He said that in order for the lymph to move from the head and lower body to the collarbone area where it drains into the veins, you have to unclog the system. The method he described involves rubbing and tapping key areas of activity to keep the lymph flowing. The sequence can be done on skin or over clothes.

[] Collarbone: Vigorously rub the left side on, above, and below it, and then tap 5 to 10 times. Repeat on the right side.

[] Top of neck: Just behind the jaw and earlobes. Pull down on the left side towards the collarbone and tap lightly on the upper neck 5 to 10 times. Repeat on the right side

[] Shoulder: Where it joins the pectoral muscle. Vigorously rub the left side and tap or slap 5 to 10 times. Repeat on the right side.

[] Abdomen: Put one hand on the belly button and one hand above that. Rub back and forth, up and down, clockwise or counter clockwise and slap 5 to 10 times.

[] Groin: Where the abdomen meets the leg, the inguinal area. Rub the left side and tap 5 to 10 times. Repeat on the right side.

[] Knees: Rub behind the knees with firm strokes up and down and tap 5 to 10 times.

[] Sternum: Tap with fists to free up the middle of the back.

[] Bounce up and down with heels leaving the floor for 10 seconds.

Ways to increase lymph flow include deep breathing, movement that involves both the arms and legs, especially when the arm movement is shoulder height or higher, using a chi machine, rebounding, hot and cold therapy, maintaining adequate hydration, dry brushing, and avoiding tight fitting clothes.


STAIN REMOVAL

After years of running Laundry Camp at the Mall of America, Patric Richardson has written Laundry Love, a book on all things laundry, including how to remove over 65 common stains. He uses a variety of products including familiar ones like washing soda and white vinegar, but a standout product is bleach alternative, 100 percent sodium percarbonate. It is a real game changer when it comes to keeping whites white.
