At the Arctic Circle a prehistoric couple was discovered frozen in ice.  After they were slowly thawed out, it was discovered that the sub-sub-freezing temperatures had actually kept them alive.  

They were identified as homoresearchus and homacademius, and lo and behold they actually spoke a form of English.  When asked what they were doing in such a hostile environment, they answered that they were doing a controlled clinical study to either prove or disprove that newly discovered fire actually provided warmth and protection from the cold.

I have been really getting back into the physical culturist side of my personality, which includes writing, and getting prepared to relaunch my businesses BetterLife Seminars, and Fat Then Fit Now. In doing so, I am constantly pursuing the internet, reading and filling my mind with the latest information available.

However, if you read anything that I write, including my book, you have probably taken note of the fact that  I don’t spend a whole lot of, if any time, talking about all the science or research.

Why?

Because my focus has always been on the person, whether it is a patient I am treating in my office as a chiropractor, or clients I motivate to take control of their health through Fat Then Fit Now.   What is important to me, and should be important to those of us who help others, is taking the whole  of the information and effectively applying it to those who seek us out.

Some folks become so myopic, that they lose sight of the fact that the human body, and human physiology is not static — in actuality; it is very dynamic!  Scientist and researches did not build the human body from the ground up as is done with a building, car or computer —  we are forced to reverse engineer the anatomy and physiology of people.  This means, thankfully, that not everything follows a static plan, and not all of us will react identically to the same stimuli.

Just because I read, participate in conversations about and understand the “research“, doesn’t make a basic, common sense approach any less true or effective.  Yes, it is important for us clinicians to understand the science, but it is also important to not get so lost in it that we lose sight of what is most important — helping people.

I am often baffled at those who strongly desire and require to complicate even the most basic concepts.  Carole Sampson, over at her former blog, CarbSaneR did a review of my book Obesity Undone, and she encapsulated my point of view in a two sentences.

    “It isn’t about pointless rat studies and attacking other people. It is about the human side of the obesity problem and about how changing one’s mental attitude is critical.”

That is the point of everything I write or say.  Do I understand the physiology of digestion, metabolism, lipolysis , anabolic/catabolic effects on muscle tissue, liver, kidney, pancreatic functions, etc…?  Yes I do, but I don’t discuss them, because, when it comes to improving health and well-being, losing weight, getting fit, etc…   what over 15 years of clinical practice has taught me is — most people don’t care that much about the minutia.  All that matters to those who are suffering is — does it f*(&ing work!?

I remember when I was first out of school, because chiropractors are often treated as second class health care providers, I felt the need to overcome this misconception and over-explain every little detail of diagnosis and treatment.  I hated the term “slipped disc” because even though orthopedic and nuero surgeons used it, I understood to “slip” a disc wasn’t possible.  I refrained from using “sciatica,” because my education taught me it was merely a descriptive term and gave no indication of the root cause of the problem.  I was trying to educate my patients with minuscule detail and big medical terms.  Boy, I was an asshole.

It was after a few months in practice, I had a migraine headache sufferer in my office, that I came to realize the truth.

This person had been a patient for about 2 weeks, and I was doing what I was taught in school, adjusting her neck.  I was having limited success,

Chiropractor

when on this particular visit, the patient’s migraine became exponentially worse after a treatment.  I was unsure what to do, so I put an ice-pack on the neck, turned out the lights, and made a phone call to one of my clinic mentors, Dr. Violini.  Dr. Violini was about 80 years old and had well over fifty years of practice experience.  I often tell people that my education prepared me to be a doctor — but it was Dr. Violini who taught me what it was to be a chiropractor.  To make this short; Dr. Violini told me to adjust a certain segment, one that we had never been told in our education that would help with headaches.  I questioned him, when he said — JUST GO AND MAKE THE ADJUSTMENT!  So, I did and the migraine abated immediately.  I called him later and asked him why it worked.  Dr. Violini said, in his heavily Italian accented English; “I don’t know.  When I was first in practice, like you, same thing happened, my boss told me to adjust — I did, headache went away.”

Through a lot of research and a chance meeting with a gentleman who was a chiropractor, medical doctor and neurologist — I finally learned the reason why this particular adjustment worked.  Excitedly, I shared this newly discovered information with my many migraine patients.

Do you want to know something?

Not a single one of them cared.

They were simply glad they no longer suffered from frequent migraines, and didn’t have to any longer take medication.

There are plenty of academics, researchers and bloggers out there who are so dogmatically attached to science, that they are almost religious in their worship.  As I wrote in an earlier posting, they become so focused on examining a droplet of water — they miss the majesty of the ocean. These folks can’t wrap their minds around a simple fact — in many cases, low carb eating works, and no matter how many studies support or contradict this truism — most overweight or obese people don’t care — they simply care that they drop weight and become healthier.  And, isn’t that what is truly important?

Instead of worrying so much about the worshiping at the altar of science, perhaps to undo obesity, a little common sense is all we really need. 

Aloha, Ciao and Stay Healthy,

Joe

Art, Science & Philosophy


I read many research articles, web publications, professional journals, blogs, etc…. I would say out of my week, I devote, on average, about 15 hours reading up on chiropractic information and probably another 15 on general health, weight loss and fitness.  I am involved in both, so I not only desire to keep up-to-date, but it is my responsibility.

Something that really bothers me in much of the debate over weight loss and fitness, is the thinking that because it is in the research, it must me correct and if it isn’t in the research, it must be wrong.  So many downplay the impact of anecdotal experience that they miss the complete and larger point — in health care anecdotal evidence, is often times the basis for case studies; a tool that can’t be left out of any practitioner’s repertoire.  To omit what happens in an individual experience is simply close minded to the importance of applied clinical information.

Now perhaps, I am biased.  I am willing to admit to that, because I am a clinician, but I also am an adjunct faculty member, so I spend some of my time in the world of academia. It is important to understand, that when we read something, there are going to be different types of interpretation.  Interpretation that is based upon who is reading, interpreting and then giving knowledge, or treatment, based on certain information.

The researcher:  A good researcher focuses on the data.  There are few, if any outside influences or experiences to effect the conclusion; which again is based solely upon the data.  Ideally, the researcher should operate in a vacuum, unfortunately, because money influences the ability for one to do research, this isn’t always  the case.

The academic:  A strong adherence to research data and texts.  Since many, not all, in academia have little to no outside experience,  their ability to apply this data to people in the real world is limited.  The academic gives a strong foundation in instruction, that is why many health care  professional schools are rooted in the core sciences for the first year, devoid of any clinical application.  The understanding of the core concepts is very important, but it can be limiting in real world application.

The clinician: Understand the core concepts of the academic, takes in as much information as possible from the researcher, then utilizes a comprehensive approach based upon clinical analysis and experience to design an effective treatment plan/protocol for the patient.  The clinician can’t be so myopic in his or her view to limit themselves to a standard protocol that may not be working.  The clinician must be willing to adapt, because their is an understanding that each individual is unique, and responses are often times different to the same protocols.  The clinician can actually  see good in contradictory research and take parts from all research, even those that academic and/or researcher would view as contradictory, to benefit the patient.

The clinician’s skilled are a combination of:

The science: The research and foundation principles.

The philosophy: The individual belief system that drives the clinician to care for others.

The art:  The application of all of the above.

It is important to understand who is giving us information concerning fitness, exercise and weight loss, therefore we can take the strong points of each when making a decision.

Many get so bogged down in who is right and who is wrong, that the benefits of each gets lost.  And worse yet, many get so lost in the minutia, focusing so intently on a drop of water they miss the majesty of the ocean, they never see the complete picture.

Their view is so narrow, that their vision is not merely distorted, it may as well be absent.

The Genuine HEALTHcare Crisis Isn’t About Funding or Coverage


My friend Dave, over at the LuLac Political Letter has been going on and on and on for the last couple of years defending the healthcare reform bill.  I think he has probably written more about it than he has about the tearing down of his beloved St. John the Baptist.  It is time to realize that the battle concerning the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA), informally referred to as Obamacare, is officially over — even if there are those who simply won’t accept this.

If you are for it celebrate.  If you oppose it — get over it.  Any person with even a passing knowledge of U.S. politics understands that once a bill is passed, signed into law and then upheld by the Supreme Court there is nothing left to do.

I know there are republicans who are vowing to defund or unfund, or not fund or whatever bull$#!t they are being directed by Rush Limbaugh to spew this week — please, get real.

There isn’t a spine in the U.S. Congress, especially on the republican side.  This is a big financial boon to large insurance companies who contribute wads of cash to both parties, not a single politician on either side is going to rock that boat.

The most disturbing fact is that whether this reform stands, is unlikely de-funded, or is replaced with a national universal plan, the cost of healthcare will continue to escalate exponentially and eventually bankrupt any system.

Why?

Because, what gets lost in all of the debate is the reality that today’s medical doctor spends relatively little time curing disease.  Many of the conditions that are crippling the American system are not caused by infectious agents.  The bulk of what the modern medicine man and woman takes care of are the result of poor lifestyle choices, and until that is addressed,

Rush Limbaugh

the cost will continue to rise — no matter the yarn any Limbaugh inspired politician or pundit attempts to spin.

A plethora of chronic diseases in this country can be attributed to tobacco, alcohol or obesity. Either alone or combined, these three controllable variables are primary factors driving up the cost of healthcare.  No matter what rhetoric anyone uses to pretty it up, until these three issues are given their due consideration, the costs will continue to climb.  When it comes to controlling spending, the Affordable Care Act is as stupid as, and even less effective than, placing a bandage on a gunshot wound to the heart. We have learned over time, that no matter how much information exists, people will continue health destroying lifestyle choices — now, the result of these choices will be covered regardless of the lack any self-intervention done by us.

The information on smoking has been out there for decades, yet  for some reason beyond any explanation, people continue the activity.

Alcohol consumption is pushed at every level of media, from sports events to our local, supposedly serious, NewsTalk Station — getting buzzed is sold as an activity in which we should regularly engage. I discuss alcohol from time to time, because it can go hand in hand the topic with which I am very familiar — obesity.

Obesity is the big one.  It is a growing problem, not only in the United States, but worldwide. Last year I was interviewed by author of The Gentle Path To Definitive Weight Loss, Rachel Norwood, whose is based out of France. I have contributed to an international website on the topics of obesity, health, wellness and fitness and I am often asked to give interviews on the same topics.  The problem is not complex, but it is difficult for many people because:

-      The U.S. government has had a food policy that for decades has encouraged the production and consumption of the very foods that make us obese.

-      Dr. Ancel Keys’ silly conclusions influenced Senator George McGovern’s panel which eventually led to the starch-laden food pyramid, that in turn gave rise to numerous low fat, fake food substances, which instead of lowering heart disease has increased it.

-      The U.S. government has given erroneous information about obesity management.

-      It is not all government, the media has helped; everyone from the pudgy purveyors of food pornography at the food network to local beer hawkers at WILK, promote the purchase and consumption of waist widening and health destroying products.

-     And now, Obama-care will offer even more incentive for us to rely on drugs and surgery and not ourselves.

There is much more, but perhaps the most important is the shunning of self-responsibility.  No matter what the influences are, the fact is that we control the type and amount of food we shove down are gullets, and the amount of exercise we put out.  Unless there is an underlying medical condition, obesity should not be having the impact it is on today’s population.  We live in a country in which children as young as eleven are now type II diabetics. That is not only unbelievable, it should be unacceptable.   Obesity and obesity related issues will cost upwards of 300 BILLION dollars and that figure is only going to grow larger.

Unless the epidemic of obesity is addressed and conquered, all the reform in the world is not going to do a damn thing.  As it stands now, doctors are being transformed from professionals who treat disease into nannies who simply give a spoonful of medicine in an attempt to manage the self-inflicted chronic diseases that ail their patients.  Is there some fantasy world where a government reform act is going to stop this?  Not likely.  Even Mayor Bloomberg’s silly soda size ban, if ever put into effect, will have zero impact. It is up to us to educate and be responsible for ourselves.

All of this effort has been applied to the wrong portion of healthcare.  It is time to stop focusing solely on care, and put the emphasis on health, if we want to do anything meaningful for our fellow citizens.
