Hello Special Young Person,

Has a doctor or your teacher told your parents that you have a reading problem?

Are you always getting into difficulties with your teacher because you can't read too well, and she says your spelling is simply horrible? Always getting into trouble too? Perhaps you find it hard to concentrate for very long.

There is good news for you.


There are some natural supplements that you can take that will make a world of difference; they will help you concentrate in school too. Natural foods are always safer than drugs.

Just look at the mistakes below that poor Christopher Robin made in his Bible stories test. Ask Mom or Dad to help you correct them.



  • MOSES LED THE JEWS TO THE RED SEA WHERE THEY MADE UNLEAVENED BREAD WHICH IS BREAD WITHOUT ANY INGREDIENTS.
  • THE EGYPTIANS WERE ALL DROWNED IN THE DESSERT . AFTERWOODS , MOSES WENT UP TO MOUNT CYANIDE TO GET THE TEN COMMANDMENTS.
  • JESUS ENUNCIATED THE GOLDEN RULE, WHICH SAYS TO DO UNTO OTHERS BEFORE THEY DO ONE TO YOU. HE ALSO EXPLAINED A MAN DOTH NOT LIVE BY SWEAT ALONE.


Tomorrow night you can enjoy a few more of poor Christopher's mistakes.


For Mom/Dad

If you think these are in bad taste, please let me know, via Contact.

What really compounds a child's life is a poor diet PLUS a writing problem. Then they are likely to have attention deficit PLUS dyslexia , and school becomes pure misery for them. Then they make life miserable for their teacher, and for you!

Make sure your kids are getting plenty of fruit as in this simple apple salad recipe. An apple a day is not some urban legend; it's scientifically proven.

And, of course, plenty of water is important too. Here are a few imaginative ways in which you can get your kids to drink more liquid, without getting into colas laden with chemicals and sugar.




Nothing is more important, kiddo, than some good nosh before going off to school. If you're not getting the good stuff to eat, your brain doesn't tick properly, and then your spelling just goes haywire!

I'll bet you could get Mom to teach you to make this smoothie every morning. It's so easy; just a couple strawberries, half a banana, half a peach or apple and any of your favourite fruits. Add a slosh of yoghurt and you're home and dry. Oh, walnuts on your cereal. Yum, they are full of omega 3. 

Walnuts are hard to get in my country, but we have plenty of pecan nuts. My granddaughter, Ruth, who is only seven can crack them; so could you.

OLIVE GARDEN SALAD RECIPE

Start them young and you will be astonished how children will take to salads. You should just see my grandkids, 2&4 tucking into olives and salad! Here's an idea for a basic Greek salad. OLIVE GARDEN SALAD RECIPE ...



GROWING AVOCADO TREES

Got room in your garden for a minature avocado tree? Not in the frozen north I confess, but in all temperate climates. Above you can see She-who-must-be-obeyed planting a Pinkerton avocado to add to our Hass and Fuerte. Our grandchildren are having avocado every day for lunch at the moment - they adore them. AVOCADO FAT ... good stuff.




Dear Parent, please, please think of alternatives before starting your child on a life time dependence on drugs for solutions. Sometimes it is necessary - if your child is diabetic - but for Dyslexia? Read more about Iatrogenic Disease, doctor-caused disease, most of which is about the harmful effects of drugs. Click here. IATROGENIC ILLNESS ...


Research is proving that the best treatment for Dyslexia probably has to do with certain fats. The brain is made of fat after all. We too feel that hydrogenation of oils may have much to do with it, though it is not yet proved. But trans fatty acids haven been proven to cause havoc with your cholesterol profile, so it's good to avoid hydrogenated foods in any case. The best fats are found in avocados, olives and olive oil and fatty fish like salmon. I strongly recommend avoiding margarine, supermarket salad dressings. READ FURTHER about margarine.

WAYS TO COOK SALMON

If you have a child with a condition like Dyslexia or Attention Deficit then fatty fish should be on the menu every day in one form or another. Perhaps a fish soup twice a week, broccoli and salmon go wonderfully together as do these mackerel recipes. Shouldn't some of this smoked salmon dip recipe be perfect for kids lunch ideas? Making up healthy lunch boxes for kids is obviously a challenge for every mum - you are after all competing with 500 other mothers. But please some fish in your packed lunch ideas.

Flax seed and walnuts are the best vegetarian options.

Plus an Omega-3 1000mg EVERY DAY for your child. For all of us really, it's just especially good for dyslectics. WAYS TO COOK SALMON ...

Interesting challenges of the day

1. Mrs B has had one of the nastiest of conditions; vertigo caused by a disturbance in the inner ear. Falling repeatedly and vomiting she consulted her doctor but medication didn't help. After two sessions of the Epley manoeuvres she was 50 percent better. After two weeks she was 75 percent improved; no longer vomiting or falling. She's not enjoying the Brandt Daroff home exercises.

2. Mr S, a 48 year old man, has right low back pain, groin pain and a numb feeling in his lower leg when he sports. For six months he's been off football. He too has two problems; a very treatable lumbar facet syndrome and a very serious blocked artery in the groin; it's called intermittent claudication. Smokers beware.  

3. Mr S looks like the leaning tower of Pisa; he has a slipped disc at L5 making him lean towards the opposite side. It's called the postero lateral disc hernia; we'll fix it, but he has to stop for a week or two. Antalgias are serious so take them seriously. 

4. Mrs V too has  two conditions; a chronic low grade sciatica giving her an ache in the right leg, and a threatening Morton's neuroma. She's glad I'm back in Holland; chiropractic fixed it before, and we'll fix it again. 

5. Mrs W is one of the lucky ones, says her doctor. I agree. He says only 40% of patients with lumbar stenosis have a successful operation. We fixed a nasty slipped disc three years ago, but it came back two years later; the surgeon did a fine job but she has a weak ankle now giving her subtalar joint pain; it's routine stuff. 

6. I myself had an acute exacerbation of a femoral nerve lesion last year. One immediate treatment of the new strain by my colleague has fixed the pain in the lower back, but there's some residual numbness in the lower leg; no soaring tomorrow alas.

7. This lady is a 86 year old woman with a 63 scoliosis. Chronic lower back has been her lot in life but she's well pleased with chiropractic and comes for chiropractic help once a month; some conditions you can never cure.

8. She is an 78 year old woman, is doing remarkably well with a bad sciatica. But over 200 pounds she is not losing weight; in fact, gaining despite my suggestions. She's high risk for a stroke. I have referred her to a dietician to crack the whip.

9. A 61 year old man with upper cervical pain yesterday; it's not severe but also not getting better of its own accord. He's afraid it may turn very acute as when I treated him three years ago. Since then it's been fine. 

10. A 64 year old woman has had scheuermanns disease; it's left her with a spinal kyphosis and chronic middorsal pain. She responds well to chiropractic treatment provides she come every six weeks or so for maintenance treatment.

11. Mrs C has been having severe headaches, and taking a lot of analgesics. It's a non complicated upper cervical facet syndrome, and she's doing well.

12. Mrs D, a middle aged woman with hip pain of one year duration, despite other treatment. Xrays reveal an impingement syndrome and early hip arthritis. There's much to be done.

13. Mr D, a 71 year old man, has a severe ache in the shoulder and midback since working above his head. Trapped nerve tests are negative but he has advanced degenerative joints of Luschka; after just two treatments he is 50 percent better. Can we reach 90?

And so the day goes; chiropractors shouldn't be treating the elderly most medical sites state but that's so much bunkum.

Interesting questions from visitors

Greetings, Dr B.
You helped me quite some time back with a soothing and professional response which turned out to be exactly correct. I now consult a local chiropractor. You write a superb newsletter, too.

Your own unresolved problem. Pose a question

Knowing that up to 70% of the time the correct diagnosis is made with no examination, no special tests, no xrays, but just from the history, there's a fair chance I can add some insight to your unresolved problem. But at least 30% of the time, I may be quite wrong! Give plenty of detail if you want a sensible reply.


You visited this chiropractic help site no doubt because you have a problem that is not resolving and want to know more about what chiropractors do.

The quickest and most interesting way is to read one of my ebooks of anecdotes. Described by a reader as gems, both funny and healthful, from the life and work of a chiropractor, you'll love them. Priced right at $2.99, though Kindle fiddles the price without telling me.
