get a flu jab and alzheimers at the same time

message from Dr Tedd Koren:
"Since flu shot season is approaching, we thought it appropriate to remind everyone
that according to Hugh Fudenberg, MD, the world's leading immunogeneticist and 13th
most quoted biologist of our time (over 850 papers in peer reviewed journals), if an
individual has had five consecutive flu shots their chance of getting Alzheimer's
disease or dementia is ten times higher than if they had one, two or no shots. (1)
Dr. Fudenberg reports that this is due to the mercury in flu shots (and many
childhood and RhoGam shots); these toxins build up in the brain causing cognitive
dysfunction. Is this why Alzheimer's is expected to quadruple? (2)

why don't I ‘pop’ or ‘crack’ spines?

Many people when they think of chiropractic care envision their spines
being twisted, yanked, and pulled on with great force. In our office we
offer our patients a low force gentle technique that can
address the structural problems in the body. We use an electronically
controlled instrument called an Arthrostim that provides gentle
repeated tapping motions to help loosen stuck spinal joints and reduce
painful muscle spasms.

The Arthrostim instrument works to correct Subluxations in the spine,
and can also be used safely on the joints of the arms, and legs. Many
people who suffer from shoulder, elbow, and wrist pain as well as hip,
knee, and ankle/foot pain greatly benefit with the low force care.

The Arthrostim (TM) also works well for people that are suffering in great
pain as well as those in chronic pain. An added advantage of using the
Arthrostim (TM)instrument is that patients can be treated standing,
sitting, or laying down. Many people only experience pain and other
problems in certain positions. For example, sitting is often a problem for
people where as laying down is not. By using the Arthrostim instrument
a patient can be worked on sitting down or whatever position is causing
the pain.

The Arthrostim (TM) instrument is a versatile instrument that is
exceptional for people of all age ranges and conditions. It is gentle
enough for newborns and children as well as adults of all ages and
conditions. Many of our patients report that it is more comfortable
adjustment/treatment and they feel better in a shorter period of time.


If the credit crunch is making you work longer hours, and your stress
levels are increasing, take care. Your body may start complaining.

I’ve noticed a big increase in neck, back and shoulder pain since the
beginning of the credit crunch at my busy practice in Hough Lane, Leyland.
I believe it’s a direct consequence of increased pressure and hours of work,
and the stress and anxiety we’ve all been suffering in the past couple of months hasn"t helped.
You can’t hold excessive levels of tension in your muscles without causing
backache and neck pain.

According to BackCare, the charity for healthier backs, 40 to 50 per cent
of the UK population will suffer from some kind of back pain each year,
and about one in 10 GP consultations is for back pain.
"It’s well known that stress exacerbates any underlying problem, and that
sitting hunched in front of a computer screen for hours is asking for
trouble – An increased workload also means that you’re more likely to
leave out going to the gym an not have time for a relaxing walk in the
So how can you keep yourself healthy in these testing times? You need to pay
attention to pain and discomfort. Take preventative
action, find a physical activity or sport you enjoy to counteract the
periods of stress and visit your local chiropractor if you are in pain. To
help local people I am offering a free consultation until 23rd December.
