Question everything. Never vote for a politician who backs bills which seek to limit freedom of speech for those who question medical procedures, epidemics or standards of care. Stay informed.

Back in the 1940-50s a Lobotomy in the treatment of certain mental disorders was considered "Settled Science". If a doctor questioned this barbaric procedure he would have been viewed as ignorant or inadequate.

In fact, in 1949, the inventor of the procedure, Doctor António Egas Moniz, was awarded the Nobel Prize for his discovery. Lobotomy was considered Standard of Care, and any neurosurgeon not performing this accepted procedure would have been considered sub-standard.

Looking back now, we realize how ignorant these doctors were, and how dangerous this procedure was. Thousands of patients had their SELF destroyed by this procedure and became docile, robotic, non-humans

So, when you hear someone say the phrase "Settled Science, just remember that the Lobotomy used to be that. When you hear someone talk about Standard of Care, realize that this is often based on no meaningful research, and based entirely on the opinions of a few "experts" in the field.

There is no such thing as Settled Science, everything should be questioned and studied.

Standard of Care is a false paradigm implying that we know everything about a subject there is to know, and that this model should not be questioned.

Think, study, watch, research, debate; we are figuring it out as we go.

A country level analysis measuring the impact of government actions, country preparedness and socioeconomic factors on COVID-19 mortality and related health outcomes 07/23/2021

A country level analysis measuring the impact of government actions, country preparedness and socioeconomic factors on COVID-19 mortality and related health outcomes

What has made the difference in reducing mortality from COVID? Perhaps not what you think.

A country level analysis measuring the impact of government actions, country preparedness and socioeconomic factors on COVID-19 mortality and related health outcomes In this exploratory analysis, low levels of national preparedness, scale of testing and population characteristics were associated with increased national case load and overall mortality.

[07/19/21]   Hello, Everyone! Dr. Erica here!

I want to thank each and everyone of you for all of your well-wishes and support in my absence. I am happy to report that I am healing well from my knee surgery. It has been challenging at times, but I am making great progress. Thanks goes to Dr. Oana Balasa at Fitness and Rehab here in Fairfax for all of her support and expertise.

I would like to thank Leticia Graves who has made nine thousand, six hundred and forty two phone calls and kept our boat floating in the right direction throughout this time. I truly could never do what I do without her steadfast commitment to our practice.

I would also like to thank Dr. Carmel Wiseman who has lovingly taken care of all of our patients.

I am also grateful to Jamie Frame our wonderful assistant who has supported our team in so many ways (by the way, he is going to nursing school at Duquesne University in Pittsburgh this fall! We are so proud!!). It has made practicing so much better during this time.

I expect to be back (perhaps with a limp) to practice on Monday, July 26th and can't wait to see you!

Cheers,

Dr. E

Research that makes our hearts sing. Literally. One Session of Spinal Manipulation Improves the Cardiac Autonomic Control in Patients with Musculoskeletal Pain: A Randomized Placebo-Controlled Trial

"Conclusion.
In patients with musculoskeletal pain, spinal manipulation on the upper thoracic spine led to an immediate improvement in the resting cardiac autonomic control without an effect on the blood pressure responsiveness to a sympathoexcitatory stimulus. Myofascial manipulation or placebo did not change cardiovascular autonomic control."

And let their brains expand. And throw in a chiropractic check-up.

With summer around the corner, it’s a good time to remember we don’t need to entertain our kids.
We are a society afraid of boredom. We are addicted to entertainment and the stimulation of certain neuro centers in the brain. We are losing the ability to just be.
Studies have shown that boredom stimulates problem solving areas of our brains that cannot be accessed in any other way. Boredom begets creativity and new thought pathways.
When we deny our children their God-given right to boredom, we are restricting their development.
Do you remember the hours you spent in boredom as a child? We would daydream in the waiting room, stare at the dust motes dancing in the sunlight, invent new games, draw, read, create, research. We were building important neuro pathways. Did we whine to our parents that we were bored? Of course! But we quickly learned that this would only lead to chores or being forced outside regardless of temperature or weather.
When we had a question, there was no Google. We had to ask another person, look it up in a book, or, gasp, ruminate on it until we found the answer within our own brains. We developed common sense and logic, because we were experiencing the world firsthand and engaging our problem solving.
So, don’t be afraid of boredom! Every generation before this one has had to learn to live with it. And they have benefited because of it.
Give your children the gift of boredom.

More research about the use of Applied Kinesiology and adrenal function and allergies.

"AK MMT Examinations and Laboratory Tests: Concurrent Validity Review
Members of the International College of Applied Kinesiology have published outcomes research on adrenal gland dysfunctions since Goodheart first published an article on this in 1964.97 These have been presented in numerous clinical outcomes trials (case and case-series reports).14 The endocrine glands are of course controlled by the nervous system, and this may be why chiropractic has been helpful throughout its history for endocrine-related disorders.98
Deriving accurate and useful clinical prediction rules (CPR) for a variety of biochemical and neuromusculoskeletal conditions have been reported by biomedical and chiropractic researchers. This philosophical shift is in its professional infancy, but it is quite clear that it has an immediate impact on chiropractic and complementary and alternative medical practice, and it is likely that the professions will de-emphasize the application of nutritional or functional medical therapies based solely on biochemical theory and continue to develop and validate clinical prediction rules.
Plausible to Clinical
Schmitt and Leisman conducted a controlled clinical trial in an attempt to determine whether the AK MMT could identify individuals with specific hyperallergenic responses.16 Seventeen participants were found positive with AK MMT screening procedures indicating food hypersensitivity (allergy) reactions. Each participant showed muscle weakening (inhibition) reactions to oral provocative testing of 1 or 2 foods for a total of 21 positive food reactions. Blood drawn subsequently were both a radioallergosorbent test (RAST) and immune complex test for IgE and IgG against all 21 of the foods that tested positive with AK muscle screening procedures. These serum tests confirmed 19 of the 21 food allergies (90.5%) suspected from the AK screening procedures. This study represented a conceptual expansion of the standard neurological examination process for food allergies.
Lebowitz conducted an observational cohort study on 100 participants to evaluate whether oral nutrient testing of protein and starch together in a food-sensitive (hyperallergenic) group and in the non-food-sensitive control group produced differing findings on AK MMT.90 In the participants with no history of food sensitivities, a protein and starch combination produced weakening in 1 of the 50 participants. In the participants with a present or past history of food sensitivities, the protein and starch combination produced weakening in 46 of the 50 participants. 98% of the nonallergic group were unaffected by the protein and starch combination, whereas only 8% of the sensitive group were unaffected.
Moncayo and Moncayo are endocrinologists trained in musculoskeletal methods (AK) who have published a number of papers showing that the AK MMT can diagnose and properly guide treatment for patients with thyroid gland dysfunctions as detected by musculoskeletal examination findings and confirmed by blood testing.87,88
Jacobs and a research team from Northwestern College of Chiropractic conducted a multicenter clinical trial in 1984 involving 65 patients who were independently evaluated for thyroid dysfunction by AK and laboratory testing. 93 They found that therapy localization to the neurolymphatic and neurovascular reflexes for the teres minor muscle (associated in AK with the thyroid gland) correlated with standard clinical assessments of thyroid function. Each patient was rated on a scale of 1 (unquestionably hypothyroid) to 7 (unquestionably hyperthyroid). AK ratings correlated with clinical ratings (rs = .36, p < .002) and with laboratory ratings (rs = .32, p < .005). Correlation between clinical and laboratory diagnosis was .47, p < 0.000. Three AK therapy localizations had a significant correlation with the laboratory diagnosis (p < .05).
As in the Jacobs and Moncayo studies mentioned previously, the interaction between thyroid dysfunction, nutritional support, and muscle strength is indicated in a study by Leaf. 92 Participants participating in the study answered a survey containing thirty symptoms relating with either hypo- or hyperthyroidism. The study was done to determine the effect on a weak teres minor muscle of putting nutritional substances on the skin or in the mouth. Four nutritional substances – niacinamide, vitamin E, inositol, and thyroid extract – were placed on the skin, and the teres minor muscle was retested for strengthening. The substances were then put in the mouth, and the teres minor was again tested for strengthening. Placement of the nutrition on the skin produced a random response. This study suggests a selectivity of chewed nutrition affecting an apparently associated muscle.
Naturally, the alterations found both symptomatically and in steroid metabolism as measured with the ASI or the AK MMT in this report are unlikely to be the only route to a complex state such as stress syndromes, but perhaps describe a distinct and identifiable subset of vulnerable individuals.
This notion has some predictive implications. It might be possible, perhaps early in life, to identify individuals with reduced glucocorticoid metabolism who are at increased risk of stress-related illness and related disorders on exposure to trauma later in life. To test this, it will be helpful prospectively to follow cohorts such as the offspring of women who had significant ASD during their pregnancy. It also implies that use of adrenal gland nutritional support during the early phase of development of symptoms may aid in the reversal of this condition in vulnerable individuals and their children. Recent clinical evidence suggests that this might be the case.99–102
More research is needed before there will be a thorough understanding of the relationship between placing nutrition upon the tongue and the performance of a muscle when tested manually. One of the major problems in designing a research study is the number of factors that influence the manual muscle test, such as the cranial-sacral primary respiratory system, neurological reflexes, joint and muscle injuries creating arthrogenic muscle inhibition, and many others. As Goodheart first pointed out, ''… the nutritional factor is only one component of the composite whole of the particular problem posed by the particular patient."74
