The Adrenal Glands and Related Muscles

Dr. Goodheart identified five specific skeletal muscles which are related to adrenal gland function. These are 1) sartorius, 2) gracilis, 3) posterior tibialis, 4) gastrocnemius, and 5) soleus. There will be weakness in one or more of these muscles when the adrenal glands are malfunctioning. Because of the attachments of the sartorius and gracilis on the pelvis, (sartorius—anterior superior iliac spine; gracilis—pubic ramus), their weakness in persons with adrenal stress problems may allow the sacroiliac joint to subluxate posteriorly. The sartorius and gracilis stabilize the innominate (one side of the pelvis), holding it in an anterior direction. Many persons with hypoadrenia seek chiropractic help for the care of sacroiliac pain and/or low back pain which is due to the lack of pelvic stabilization normally provided by these muscles. The sartorius and gracilis have a common insertion (along with the semitendinosis) on the medial side of the knee and rotate the … Continue Reading

Prostate: BPH and Increased PSA

Here is some info that I typed to a client, but thought is was good education for all: As for inc urination at night, this can be due to a prostate enlargement, but also the organs hanging down off their ligaments (visceroptosis) pushing on the bladder, it can be from insulin resistance and the body not being able to absorb the water, it can be from being deficient in minerals, a urologicol (bladder infection) from bacteria or fungus, from drinking fluids close to bed time, caffiene can irritate and cause this (eliminate it!), as well as one of the major (as there are 100’s) side effects of long term ingestion of aspartame is inc freq of urination. I am sure there are others. They key is to figure out why you are having this issue. Yes I know the MD said this and that, but they say a lot that … Continue Reading

Your request is being processed… Bacteria Linked To Feces Found In Nearly Half Of Fast Food Soda Fountains

Huffington Post |  Gazelle Emami Didn’t think the fast food industry could get any grosser? Well it can. This time, it’s not the food, but the soda fountains to be worried about. According to Tom Laskawy, a media and technology professional and blogger for grist.org, a team of microbiologists from Hollins University found that 48% of sodas tested from the fast food fountains contain coliform bacteria, which is typically fecal in origin. And most bacteria found were antibiotic resistant, as icing on the cake. The microbiologists published their findings in the International Journal of Food Microbiology. They tested 90 beverages from 30 soda fountains. Their abstract states: …Coliform bacteria was detected in 48% of the beverages and 20% had a heterotrophic plate count greater than 500 cfu/ml. [...] More than 11% of the beverages analyzed contained Escherichia coli [E. Coli] and over 17% contained Chryseobacterium meningosepticum. Other opportunistic pathogenic microorganisms isolated … Continue Reading

Yummy! Ammonia-Treated Pink Slime Now in Most U.S. Ground Beef

By Jennifer Poole, Daily Kos You’re not going to believe what you’ve been eating the last few years (thanks, Bush! thanks meat industry lobbyists!) when you eat a McDonald’s burger (or the hamburger patties in kids’ school lunches) or buy conventional ground meat at your supermarket: According to today’s New York Times, The “majority of hamburger” now sold in the U.S. now contains fatty slaughterhouse trimmings “the industry once relegated to pet food and cooking oil,” “typically including most of the material from the outer surfaces of the carcass” that contains “larger microbiological populations.” This “nasty pink slime,” as one FDA microbiologist called it, is now wrung in a centrifuge to remove the fat, and then treated with AMMONIA to “retard spoilage,” and turned into “a mashlike substance frozen into blocks or chips”. Thus saving THREE CENTS a pound off production costs. And making the company, Beef Products Inc., a … Continue Reading
