VACATION TIME! July 1st-7th, 2018.

June 29, 2018

NEXT WEEK I WILL BE KAYAKING ON THE 7-LAKE

ESSEX CHAIN LAKES IN THE OLD FORGE AREA OF THE NY ADIRONDACK STATE PARK.

 

LAST WEEKEND I did a Boondock Experiment up in North Conway NH. Boondocking is when you are living out of your truck. Most boondockers have a camper top (my Chevy Avalanche doesn't work with a camper top), but the experiment was a success. Among the "experimenting" was of course cooking off the tailgate and getting a warm shower. I did this with a $5 "Solar Shower bag" from Walmart; it heated the water up beautifully. And then I purchased an electric shower!        Battery --->

operated, works for 51 minutes! Recharges on cigarette lighter USB port! It worked great!

 

 

 

 Making coffee on the tailgate at a parking area alongside the Ellis River in Jackson, NH. -------->

Fresh Coffee in the morning! AHHH!

 

 

 

 

 

7 Mile Kayak tour on the Saco River. Some beautiful scenery!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Sorry, no selfies were made on this last weekend, but I can tell you that the 7 mile kayaking trimmed my waistline and I expect that NEXT WEEKS' week-long adventure will REALLY whittle me down!

 

 

I am here in Salem until Sat a.m. (June 30th), and will return-probably very tanned and svelt-  On Monday July 8th at 8 a.m.   

 

Have a Happy and Safe 4th of July!

Testimonials from Dr. Joe Kish

Testimonials on Chiropractic as experienced by Dr. Joe Kish

PERSONAL HEALTH TESTIMONIALS FROM DR. JOE

My life has been saved with prompt Chiropractic care, on at least three occasions.

 

 

STOMACH function

THE PROPER FUNCTIONING OF YOUR STOMACH.  

A PERSONAL TESTIMONIAL FROM DR. JOE

    I once had a T-5 SUBLUXATION and I didn’t know it. The 5th Thoracic spinal nerve goes through a nerve plexus and controls the proper function of your stomach.  It happened when I was a Police Officer in the Village of Fishkill, NY.  I was rear-ended while stopped at a traffic light. There was no damage to my vehicle, the “tap” was that slight, but I felt a pain in my mid-back between the shoulder blades. That night I took my parents out to dinner. It was their Anniversary.  I remember that I ate the broiled sea scallops. They were great! After dinner, while I was walking to the car, I threw up in the parking lot of the restaurant. I thought I had a “stomach bug”. 

     Fortunately, at this time I was going to a chiropractor regularly and my next appointment was in two days. The next morning I had sausage and eggs and had to run to the bathroom to throw up again. That afternoon I had a hotdog for lunch (this is before I cleaned up my diet!) and could barely keep it down. I was actually getting weak from lack of protein.

    The next morning I saw my chiropractor. I told him about the accident, what I had eaten, and the vomiting. "Hmmm” he said, “It sounds like achlor-hydria (lack of sufficient stomach acid) due to a subluxation.”

He knew just where to check, the fifth thoracic vertebra, and sure enough, it was subluxated. Spinal nerve interference is called “subluxation”. He gently adjusted this bone and said “There, I’ve gotten it, go home and enjoy some protein.” That night I had a steak (protein) for dinner and I had no digestion problems.

I have not had a stomach problem since.

 

HEART function

THE PROPER FUNCTIONING OF YOUR HEART,
A PERSONAL TESTIMONIAL FROM DR. JOE

      My life has been saved with prompt Chiropractic care, on at least three occasions.   The 1st Thoracic nerve goes through your Cardiac Nerve Plexus and controls the proper functioning of your heart.  

     I once had a T-1 SUBLUXATION and didn’t know it until I happened to get my blood pressure checked and my heart sounds listened-to. It turns out I incurred a T-1 Subluxation (“nerve interference” is called subluxation) from a tennis game 2 days earlier when I missed the ball  and "over swung".  Prior to this injury/subluxation I had normal blood pressure and normal heart sounds. Now I had a heart arrhythmia and high blood pressure. These findings were verified by 4 different doctors.

     With a stethescope I also listened to my heart sounds and heard the asymmetric heart beat. I quickly went to my brother (who was a Chiropractic Student-Doctor at the time) and he adjusted the 1st Thoracic bone. He immediately took my blood pressure: Now normal! He listened to my heart sounds: Now normal! I listened-to my heart sounds too, and sure enough, the normal heart beat (and blood pressure),  had returned. I have not had a heart problem since.

LIVER function

THE PROPER FUNCTION  OF YOUR LIVER,
A PERSONAL TESTIMONIAL FROM DR. JOE

     My life has been saved with prompt Chiropractic care, on at least three occasions.   I assure you, if the T-11 nerve is impinged (“nerve interference” called subluxation) it will affect your livers’ proper function.  It certainly affected mine. Many people believe that if they have no pain that they are healthy; sadly this is not true.

      I once had a SUBLUXATION of the T-11 nerve. It happened when I slipped on a staircase and fell onto the very edge of the step. I landed on my back, right at the location of the T-11 spinal bone. Wow, that did hurt – but the pain went away.

A few days later I went for a scheduled blood and urine test which was required in order to get a new life insurance policy. Two days later I received the results and was denied life insurance   (unless I wanted to go into some sort of “assigned risk” pool – at a much higher premium!) -because I had an "elevated Bilirubin level".

 Bilirubin shows up in the urine. It is an indicator of  LIVER FUNCTION.

      By now, I was a licensed Chiropractor, and I immediately understood the nerve-connection involved, and connected that to the fall on the steps. I insisted that my chiropractor check my 11th Thoracic bone. Sure enough, it was subluxated.

I  had it corrected (“adjusted”), and immediately called the insurance agent to demand another blood/urine test. A week later another test was made and two days after that a very confused insurance man called me back to report that the results were: a normal bilirubin level!  ("The first lab test must have been in error", he said!)

     I got the insurance policy from the same agent and the same company that originally denied me. I get a test done every couple of years and I haven’t had a bilirubin or liver problem since.

 

 

BLOOD pressure?

WHAT CAN CHIROPRACTIC DO ABOUT BLOOD PRESSURE?
Well, NOTHING…and maybe... EVERYTHING

     Recently a patient complained of her gradually increasing blood pressure, first in the moderately high range, and then up into the definitely high range: 160/100!  We did pre-and post-adjustment blood pressure testing, and after a week of intensive Chiropractic care, her blood pressure was 120/80… textbook normal.

HOW DID THE CHIROPRACTOR DO THIS?

 He didn’t. He simply adjusted her spine.

Chiropractors do not treat or cure disease, we only locate and adjust spinal subluxations.  Once subluxations are corrected, the body operates with optimum nerve function, and the internal organs can then function at optimum. It took a week for  her body to return to normal function.
