March is Brain Injury Awareness Month!
The #ChangeYourMind public awareness campaign provides a platform for educating the general public about the incidence of brain injury and the needs of people with brain injuries and their families. Individuals who join us to help raise awareness with the #ChangeYourMind campaign are essential to:
De-stigmatizing brain injury through outreach within the brain injury community
Empowering those who have survived brain injury and their caregivers
Promoting the many types of support that are available to people living with brain injury
Condition of the Month
Fibromyalgia is known for causing widespread muscle pain and exhaustion. If you are suffering from this condition, you may have pain and tenderness throughout your body. Other symptoms may include:
- Feeling stiff upon waking
- Fibro fog – problems thinking and remembering
- Abnormal headaches
- Problems getting a good night’s rest
- Numbness or tingling in the hands and feet
- Painful menstrual periods
Often, other conditions coexist with fibromyalgia:
- Chronic fatigue syndrome
- Inflammatory bowel disease
- TMJ – temporomandibular joint dysfunction
- Interstitial cystitis
- Tension headaches
- Anxiety and depression
One area that is able to help fibromyalgia patients find some relief is that of upper cervical chiropractic care. As we noted earlier, proper brain function is a vital part in keeping fibromyalgia at bay. One way to ensure good brain function is to correct the bones of the upper cervical spine. Studies have shown that if these bones are misaligned, even by ¼ of a millimeter, they can cause problems with the brain. The brainstem was designed to be protected by the C1 and C2 vertebrae. However, if these bones move out of place due to a car accident, a trip and fall, or other minor trauma to the head, the brainstem may be placed under pressure. This causes it to send improper signals to and from the brain, leading to all kinds of health problems. If the signals coming through the brainstem are changed to tell the brain there is pain when there is no pain, fibromyalgia can be the end result.
Chiropractic can use a gentle method to help realign the bones. This often leads to a decrease in the symptoms of fibromyalgia. Some see it go away and not return.

I (Dr. Baker) found out recently I do not have adequate measles immunity, via a titer test. I do not plan to get a measles shot. Even if I wanted to, I would also have to get a vaccine for mumps and rubella in the same vaccination. I do not want or need these but I have no choice. Why won’t they make safer vaccines? They could. There is a rising anti-anti-vaccine mob reaction right now due to a measles outbreak in another state. You would think children were dying left and right. But no, they are not.
There are certain populations that do not vaccinate based on (religious) beliefs. Parents who decide not to vaccinate are shown through polls, to be highly educated individuals; not the rabid, misinformed parents the media influenced by Big Pharma would have you believe. It is not a decision made lightly. Yet there are rumors the “Feds” may attempt to remove the right to decline vaccination. Various states are taking this up in legislation meetings currently. Are we ready for a police state? Are we ready to have social services remove that number of children from their Catholic, Christian Science, Amish, Mennonite, home schooled, educated parents’ homes? Are you ready to be forced to have a flu shot?
There are highly educated scientists, doctors and researchers who have studied the deaths and disabling effects of vaccines on some children. The pharmaceutical industry has protected itself against litigation in cases where children died, yes died, or were irreparably damaged by their vaccinations. It’s now a separate system: the Vaccine Adverse Reporting System. On 60 Minutes there was a report where a pharmaceutical owner revealed that prescribing long term opioid use was granted by the FDA without one single study showing it was safe. On the contrary, they knew the dangers. Where is the media outrage on 155 deaths/day in the U.S.A. from opioids?
They let aspartame/Splenda come back on the market to help megafood industry increase profits even after removing it for safety concerns. The recent recall of contaminated blood pressure medications; aborted fetal tissue used in making rubella (MMR vaccine), varicella (chicken pox) and hepatitis A vaccines. – The National Catholic Bioethics Center 2006; Revised 2018).
The reports are endless on the drugs released and cleared for public consumption, then recalled due to deaths and damage. This is the institution you would put your trust in for your children’s safety? Go to nvic.org for vaccine information based on science and data. Barbara Lowe Fisher has testified before congress.
More and more articles and research are showing that interval training is just as effective as longer cardio training. Studies show that short bursts of high energy output balanced with slow down are showing benefits even an hour after exercise. This is good news for busy people, which seem to be most of us! Check out your favorite exercise guru or go to mercola.com to find out the science behind shorter, effective work outs!
May the saddest day of your future be no worse than the happiest day of your past.
May your troubles be less, and your blessings be more and nothing but happiness come through your door.
May God bring good health to your enemies’ enemies!
