Technique Speak Originally, after I had created Koren Publications, I thought that lecturing to chiropractic groups, writing for journals, and working in private practice would be my ultimate professional accomplishments. But life had something else in store for me. Years ago, my family was moving, and boxes and furniture were all over the place. I didn’t notice the large, heavy, sharp-edged laminate piece balanced on its edge behind the door I closed. It fell on me. It was a bad accident, and as a result I had no strength and suffered 10 years of intense pain and paresthesia.
Clinical Concerns One healing practice that deserves to be brought onboard any chiropractic practice is deep abdominal breathing (AB). People everywhere take the respiratory system for granted and indulge in shallow and even paradoxical breathing (PB), where the diaphragm moves opposite to the normal direction. But faulty and abnormal breathing are likely to hamper health and detract from therapeutic gains. Clinical evidence abounds regarding the benefits of good breathing in wellness modalities such as Ayurvedic and Siddha medicine, yoga, and tai chi.
Feature While the Fountain of Youth has yet to be found, it is known that the human body holds clues to a person’s longevity. Components at the cellular level play roles, including telomeres, methylation, and mitochondria. Telomeres are repeating sequences found at the ends of chromosomes, which protect them from deterioration. Without telomeres, DNA would be susceptible to extensive damage, says Adam Killpartrick, DC, CNS. “Think of telomeres as the plastic tips on the ends of shoelaces that prevent them from fraying,” says James Antos, DC, DABCO.
