Because of many links to our two sister sites, and we have been accused of being a link farm, a dreaded connotation. It's irritating but to find links to the subjects in bold you have to copy and paste it into the site search function in the navigation bar on your left.


SLOW FOOD, made fast, is our slogan. Sometimes that can't be done, but generally healthy eating doesn't mean laborious cooking. Take our Lentil protein dish for example. Nothing could be easier than to add this magical cholesterol-lowering food to your menu. Tofu nutrition you can literally prepare in the time to take to fry a couple onions, but yes our lekker healthy lamb mutton stew does take about an hour and a half. Cook enough and it'll last you three or four days. We're having tofu tonight. Dus minder opvliegers! Suffering from menopause?

Whether you live in a sports crazy country like South Africa, or a country with mad stairscases like I do, foot and ankle injuries are common and, if not cared for properly, lead inexorably to plenty of cases where one could write volumes of ankle joint pain casefiles.

Every sprained ankle should have the ankle mortise and subtalar joints assessed. Neglected they just lead to painful feet and ankles in the future. Worse, because they change your gait, they start to cause knee, hip and back problems.

Ankle mortise and subtalar joints.

Love your meat? Thank your lucky stars you don't live in the Netherlands! It's tasteless and horrid!

But do make sure you are balancing that cholesterol with plenty of soluble fibre and phytosterols. Otherwise the chances of seeing the grandchildren grow up ...!

If you have raised cholesterol then our authentic hummus recipe is right up your street. Chickpeas are one of the six SUPERFOODS regular mentioned for raised cholesterol. I make two cups of hummus twice a week. Apple diet is another...

Hummus ingredients.


At this page you will also find tables that will help you to interpret your own cholesterol figures. Getting your cholesterol blood profile into shape is really not that difficult, without the use of nasty Statins with all their side effects. Quaker Oats recipes for breakfast, an apple for lunch... really, it's not rocket science. You can do it too. FOODS TO AVOID HIGH CHOLESTEROL ...

QUAKER OATS RECIPES are all about the soluble fibre.

Much of the research now is fingering raised blood sugar rather than cholesterol as the source of our poor cardiovascular health; in fact what you do or don't eat has very little influence on the fat profile in your blood.

Interesting challenges of the day

1. Mr S is a 76 year old man with neck pain of some 9 months duration. Luckily, most of the discomfort is upper cervical which is only rarely arthritic; his lower cervical spine is a degenerative mess that I've left alone. After seven treatments his pain and stiffness is 50 percent better, and he's happy in the circumstances. He can sleep through the night now and that makes a huge difference.

2. Mr P is 32 year old man with very severe lower back pain radiating to the big toe which is 30 percent numb. He had an episode three weeks ago, took anti inflammatories and was soon better as is typical of the medial disc herniation. But before it healed, after a trivia it came roaring back, much worse. The characteristic crossed sign was evident; sitting in a chair, straightening the right leg provoked severe left back pain and tingling in the leg. He's doing well.

3. Severe lower back pain is scary; just ask Mrs P. Just watching her get out of the car I she was in trouble; she had a slipped disc at L4 making her lean towards the opposite side; luckily she had no pain in the leg. Despite family pressure that this was far too severe for a chiropractor, she persevered. Within five days she was standing upright, and after two weeks almost painfree. 

Despite a hectic job, she wisely took my advice and stayed home for what I call exercising bed rest.

4. Mr S has had lower back, groin and back of thigh and calf pain for fourth months.

He has a pincer deformity in the hip causing the stabs in the groin, and a degenerative facet causing the sciatica. Both are responding well to chiropractic and he's well pleased; sixty five percent better after three treatments.

5. Mr T is a wise man; he's taken a warning TIA seriously and has lost 15 pounds, and has at least as much again to lose. A change to a low starch diet and half hour daily walk has made the difference; but the walking is making his foot and back miserable. The expensive orthotic is hopeless; luckily his hips and back are fine, but he needs a simple heel lift.

6. I too have had serious lower back issues, luckily fixed by my own chiropractor; so I too have to do my exercises, take care when lifting supers full of honey, gardening and using the chainsaw. Regaining the function of your spine is just as important as the pain.

7. My own granddaughter, only 7 is hypermobile giving her pelvic, knee and ankle issues. Xrays show a mildly dysplastic hip. Years ago we would have called it growing pains. She too regularly needs chiropractic care and luckily responds well. Increased range of motion is more difficult than too stiff in my opinion. Our care is for kids too.

8. This 65 year old lady is a serious gardener; every day she is bending, lifting and digging for 2 to 3 hours a day. It regularly catches her in the sacroiliac joint, so she has a treatment once a month that sorts it out. She does her lower back exercises faithfully.

9. This 88 year old lady is an inspiration; every day she is busy in the community. With a nasty scoliosis she manages very well with a chiropractic adjustment every six weeks and exercises faithfully done.  

10. Mr X is a 71 year old retired man who wants to continue with maintenance care every six to eight weeks; he had suffered from two years of lower back pain when he first came a year ago. He has no discomfort now after 8 chiropractic treatments, but is aware that danger lurks.

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. Mr D is a 38 old year man with chronic shoulder pain after a rotator cuff tear playing cricket. It responded well to treatment, but he knows he must do his exercises every day; for two years he couldn't sleep on that shoulder.

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.

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.
