remedies such as diet, essential oils, herbs and natural treatment protocols here as part
of the show. And in today’s episode, we’re going to be
talking about the top 11 headache remedies. And Jordan, there are a large number of people
that struggle, I would say, millions of people, especially in the U.S., that struggle with
headaches on a regular basis. Now, there’s lots of different types of headaches
from migraines to cervicogenic headaches to tension headaches. But, there are many of
the same treatments. And so you’re going to see great results following the tips we have
today. Also, every week on the show we talk about food is medicine, and we’d ask you today
to take a minute and help us spread the message. I guarantee you, by sharing this information,
you’re going to help transform lives. So take a second right now and punch that “Share”
button, click that “Like” button, help us spread the word. So Jordan, why are so many people getting
headaches? And what are some of the root causes? Jordan:Well, first of all, I can tell you
that a headache is not an aspirin or acetaminophen deficiency, right, and that’s not why we get a headache.
There are a lot of reasons, we’re going to go into some of those. I actually think the
number one reason for headaches, and my kids know this very well, is dehydration. And I’ll
give you a headache remedy, when we’re going through this, that works like 90% of the time.
It’s funny, my kids will come and say, “Dad, I have a headache and I already . . .” and
I don’t want to give it up but I’ll tell you in just a moment, they’ve already tried
it. So they know a little bit of that. But it’s interesting how headaches are a topic
that affects everyone. I’ve never done a poll or a survey, but I’m guessing that everybody
has had a headache, right? I mean, I have headaches, it’s not very often, thank God.
I have relatives who have had migraines to the point where they’re carried out in a stretcher,
they’re down for days, I mean, horrible stuff. So migraine headaches, cluster headaches,
whatever you call that other kind of headache, which sounds super scientific – I’ve never
had one of those, I don’t think – but you’re right, tension headaches, it goes sort of
to jaw pain. Sinus headaches, that I do get sometimes. Dr. Axe:There you go. Jordan:You know what’s the worst, I almost
always, when I have a sinus headache, it’s then I fly. You know, like 30,000 feet in
the air is how I treat my . . . isn’t it the worst? Dr. Axe:It is, yeah. Jordan:I mean, there are times when you’re
landing and you have that sort of sinus headache that’s here and here that you just want to
punch the seat in front of you. But anyway, headaches are common, and I believe, you can
get rid of so many of them without having to grab for that bottle of pills. Dr. Axe:Yeah, absolutely. And by the way,
we are live right now with Ancient Medicine Today. We’d love to hear from you, let us
know right now. We’ve got a poll up here on Facebook and YouTube. We’d love to hear from
you. Let us know the city you’re from, the state you’re from, and the country you’re
from, and we’d love to say “Hey” to you here today. All right, we’ve got people joining from all
over the world, right now. We have Pia Lecou watching from Finland. Hey, Pia, thanks for
joining us here today. We have Julie Larson watching. We have Tracey Hall from Dillon,
Colorado. Nanette Belgen said she just shared this live video. Nanette, thanks so much for
being on mission with us. We have Sandie Lee Reynolds watching from Gig Harbor, Washington.
We have Tanesha Yvonne watching from Arizona. And Xolida Zade watching from New York City,
New York. Guys, thanks so much for being with us today. So we’re going to dive in and talk about some
of these remedies. But again, there are multiple causes of headaches, Jordan. And so, we’re
going to get into many of these, everything from food sensitivities are a big one. We’ll
talk about tension in the neck, tension in the jaw, poor posture, all kinds of things,
we’ll get into. But number one Jordan here, this is a nutritional deficiency, a lot of
people have today, in magnesium. Jordan:Magnesium is responsible for hundreds
of different enzymatic activities in our body. Calcium gets a lot of credit as an important
mineral. Magnesium is so important. And when it comes to headaches, not only do you need
to have your proper levels of magnesium from food such as greens, plant foods are really
good sources of magnesium, animal foods to a lesser extent. But taking magnesium is great.
You know what’s great for a headache? Magnesium oil. Dr. Axe:Oh yeah, awesome. Jordan:And you know what’s pretty cool, it’s
not an oil. It’s actually sort of like an extract of seawater minus the salt. It feels
oily, but that is a great way to ease a headache. It’s very absorbent and you put it on certain
areas of the body. Just put it on the temples and especially on the neck, and if you put
it on larger portions of your body, your legs and your arms, it’ll help you absorb magnesium.
Another way to get magnesium is an Epsom salt bath, which is also great for headaches, especially
when combined with essential oils. So, magnesium’s a mineral where deficiency symptoms can include
headaches. Dr. Axe:Absolutely. So magnesium, again, the
great relaxation mineral. Number two here is a gluten-free diet. Now, this can also
go with other food sensitivities, but if you’re consuming gluten, it can cause an inflammatory
response in the body. Many people today, in fact, some numbers show about one out of seven
people are gluten intolerant. And I know, Jordan, for you and I, we believe
that sprouted grains and lacto-fermented grains that are ancient can be much better for our
health. But a lot of people today are going to have gluten sensitivity, so again, gluten
is one of the biggest ones. Sometimes it can be casein and dairy, though, there can be
other things. But if you have a food sensitivity, it can absolutely be causing a headache. And so, one of the things you want to do if
you get a headache, you want to go and start tracking what you’re eating on a daily basis.
Was there something you ate that meal before your headache came on that is a potential
trigger? Again, certain grain products, especially gluten, dairy, food additives is another big
one that can cause some form of reaction. So again, and there are some testing that
can sometimes would be beneficial, IgG testing, some IgE. But the best way to really know
is by listening to your body. Now Jordan, this next section here, you and
I both love essential oils. And by the way, we’d love to hear from you. If you have ever
used essential oils for a headache, neck pain, or any type of pain or discomfort, let us
know the essential oil that you used and the results you saw with using essential oils.
Jordan, here are two of your favorites, peppermint and lavender. Jordan:Absolutely. Lavender is the best. You
want to rub it on your neck, you want to rub it on your head. You can even take lavender
internally, especially if it’s organic. A couple of drops, very good to ease anxiety,
diffusing it, rubbing it in your hands, smelling it right out of the bottle, rubbing it on
your feet. Those are all great things to do. And when you’re getting magnesium in the form
of an Epsom salt bath or applying magnesium oil, lavender is great. And peppermint, got
to be careful applying peppermint because it’s very strong. So you want to be careful
on the eyes, and I’ve made the mistake of putting oils like that on my head that then
came down my face, you know the rest. Peppermint is awakening, but that combination, smells
great, and I do believe, it helps with a headache. Here’s what you alluded too that I want to
mention or clarify. Writing things down is really important, because people that have
cluster headaches or migraines, I think it’s important to know their frequency and the
severity. So I would journal this, because here’s why. When someone has a headache, especially
if they don’t want to do something, you hear about it. “Man, I would but I just have this
headache.” My kids are great with this. “Oh, you know what, I just really have a headache.
I would but I have a headache.” We don’t see people going around saying, “I don’t have
a headache today.” You don’t know when you don’t have one. It’s really sort of on or off, and then of
course, if you got migraines or cluster headaches, they can be severe or minor. But start journaling,
and I’d love to see a week over week or month over month basis, if you can reduce the severity
and the frequency of headaches, and essential oils are a great way to do it. I think certain
chemical fumes can cause headaches, essential oils can help them go away. Dr. Axe:Yeah, totally agree. What I’d love
to see with peppermint and lavender, what I would do is I would do a few drops, typically
three drops of each. You can do them neat, straight on the skin, right on your hand,
and rub them. If you’re having a pain, wherever the pain and discomfort is, especially though
the upper part of the neck, where your neck meets the base of your skull and also on your
temple area and forehead, rubbing those essential oils on that area or doing a great mixture
of magnesium with peppermint and lavender, what a great combo for that. And sometimes,
even taking a warm compress or hot compress on it for one minute, holding it on there,
can help you actually feel the results even faster. Now, number four here, Jordan, chiropractic
care. Now, chiropractors really deal with misalignments of the spine and this can absolutely
help headaches. In fact, I saw a medical study, Jordan, where chiropractic was more effective
than medications at the treatment of headaches. And so chiropractic, tried-and-true, absolutely,
probably the number one natural treatment, holistic treatment when it comes to headaches. Now, one of the big things, Jordan, we know
that can cause headaches is sitting at a desk all day and poor posture. You know, a lot
of times, people don’t realize this, but when someone’s looking forward, there should be
a curve in the neck at 45 degrees and really, your ears should be right over your shoulder.
Most people today, though, start to look down and get their head forward and they sit like
this all day. What that’s doing is putting tension on all of these posterior cervical
muscles, okay, these muscles in the back of your neck, causing tension and muscle spasm.
So again, if you’ve got poor posture, seeing a chiropractor oftentimes, they can prescribe
rehabilitative exercises. Some of the best things to do, Jordan, I know
I’ve been going to the gym lately and seeing a lot of people in there. You know, especially
all the guys, it’s like, it’s all chest and bicep and no back. I mean, you want to be
doing things like rows and pull-ups and reverse, things where you’re really working those back
muscles, opening yourself up, getting up from your desk every hour, walking for just a couple
minutes, staying loose. But again, seeing a chiropractor can have great results in helping
you overcome headaches. Jordan:Absolutely. We’re here at Ancient Medicine
Today talking about 11 natural headache remedies. And guess who needs to hear this? Everybody
because you’ve had a headache and you’re going to have another headache. We want to make
sure that they’re less severe and less frequent, and we want to help you get rid of a headache
quick. So if you’re someone who has headaches and
wants to overcome them, let us know. And more importantly, if you know somebody who has
headaches, and there’s people where it completely disrupts their life, share this message. We
do these live videos, Ancient Medicine Today, to transform your health while helping you
use food as medicine. I just thought of these top 11, we left one out. My number one treatment
for a headache is getting a babysitter. Dr. Axe:That’s pretty good, Jordan. I like
that. All right, we’re getting a few great comments here from people. Heather Schanz
says, “I love essential oils, and I use rosemary scrub and it really helps clear up my sinuses
and sinus headaches using rosemary oil. I also use peppermint and lavender with that.”
Heather, great idea, love that comment. All right, number five here, Jordan. You know
something about herbal formulas, I know that you’ve formulated hundreds and hundreds of
products using herbs. Talk about feverfew and butterbur. Jordan:Absolutely. I think butterbur is the
most effective herb for migraines, also good for seasonal allergies. Feverfew is more good
for tension headaches. But if you have migraines, you owe it to yourself to take butterbur.
You want to use a butterbur extract. You can certainly make a tea but it’s not easy to
find bulk herb of butterbur. But it is really strong in reducing headaches. And I’ve seen
some research that shows a significant response for chronic migraine sufferers simply using
a butterbur extract supplement, and they compared it to various other migraine medicines. And
it worked by itself and in combination with the medicine. The medicines are rough. I mean, I’m thinking
of some right now, they can be really rough and they cause dramatic side effects. But
people with migraines are desperate. Migraines cause missed work, lost jobs, and I know,
there’s athletes, the Football Hall of Fame ballot is coming. There’s one whose career
was cut short due to migraines and was one of the best running backs of all time when
he played. So it’s absolutely disastrous. Butterbur and feverfew are worth a try if
you’ve got chronic migraines. Dr. Axe:Awesome, great advice, Jordan. Number
six here, B-complex, and let me say this quick. You know, we appreciate all of you taking
the time today to watch the show. Remember, every week, we talk about food is medicine.
Hey, help us spread that message right now. There are millions of people that are suffering
with headaches that need to know this information. So take a minute right now, punch that “Share”
button, click that “Like” button, help us spread the word. Now, B-complex is full of many different types
of B-vitamins. B1 to B12, one of the most important B-vitamins is vitamin B6, as it
really helps support circulation and the opening up of your arterial system. And so again,
a lot of times that lack of blood flow, lack of circulation, in fact, Jordan, I’ve known
plenty of people who said, “Oh, I drank coffee or I had caffeine in that. I exercised and
my headache went away.” You want to increase your circulation, B-complex, specifically
B6, can help with that amongst boosting your energy and many other benefits. So, B-complex
or certain B-vitamin deficiencies can absolutely contribute to headache symptoms. Jordan:Right. And we didn’t talk about this,
but you can have a headache due to toxins being released. You know how I know that,
go on a fast and see how your head feels. Because when your body eliminates toxins,
you feel yucky, and I’ve heard it described as a toxin headache. Number seven, bone broth. Now this is interesting
because there is a way to make bone broth that could actually trigger headaches. If
you’re cooking bone broth for 24 to 48 hours, which is what we recommend, it can, in some
people, create a histamine reaction and cause headaches. So if you’re prone to headaches,
bone broth is still great, but make a hotter temperature. So instead of bringing it to
a boil and then reducing to a simmer, keep it higher on the flame for a shorter period
of time and it can actually help headaches, mainly due to hydration and powerful nutrition
in bone broth. So adding bone broth to your diet also helps with your gut, and many headaches
or chronic headaches are caused by hyper permeability of the gut, also known as leaky gut syndrome. Dr. Axe:Yeah, absolutely, couldn’t agree more.
Number eight here, now Jordan, this is one you talk about a lot, stay hydrated. I’ll
give you the floor here. Jordan:Awesome, I get two in a row. So this
is the remedy of all remedies. Now I learned this from a Dr. Fereydoon Batmanghelidj. I’m
really excited because I can pronounce it. Dr. Axe:Well, his name is Batman, too. Jordan:It’s awesome. Now he was a prisoner
of war in Iran. This is an amazing story. And he, as a medical doctor, was a prisoner,
and he would hear the cries and screams of inmates. And he developed over four years
protocols to cure peptic ulcers and headaches using tap water. And he developed certain
systems and protocols. His first book was Your Body’s Many Cries for Water and then,
my favorite title, You’re not Sick, You’re Thirsty! So here’s a headache remedy that I learned
from him, adapted it a little bit. When you have a headache, drink eight ounces of water.
Room temperature is probably better but . . . and drink it quickly, don’t sip on it. Set your
timer for ten minutes and repeat. So you drink eight ounces of water, not anything else,
just water, don’t eat anything in between. Ten minutes later, if you still have a headache,
drink it again. Then go for some of these great treatments. Could you imagine if you
don’t really have a headache, you’re just dehydrated? There’s no doubt that your body works hard
to remove things that don’t belong. But in the absence of hydration, it struggles. So
this is a good tip, and I want to hear from you. If you’re somebody who use this, the
water cure for headaches, let us know about it. Hydrotherapy is great in general. Using
hot and cold showers, compresses, we could talk about that, with essential oils. But
eight ounces of water, right away, following ten minutes later, then try a natural remedy.
Don’t grab medicine first. I promise you your headache is not an aspirin or acetaminophen
deficiency. It is not. So, thank you for giving me that one. Dr. Axe:Oh yeah, great comment here from Ashley.
She said, “Hydration is very important to prevent headaches.” Rhonda Goddard says,
“Aloe vera juice works great as well. I’ve noticed it instantly helps my headache.” Great
thoughts and comments here. Jordan, you know, one of the things too is
staying hydrated, I think I see this a lot and when I work in clinic, seeing a lot of
kids, because a lot of them were drinking so much soda so often. So especially for soda
drinkers and coffee drinkers, I think they can become dehydrated even easier with some
of the things they’re consuming every day. Jordan:Absolutely. Dr. Axe:Number nine here, taking a detox bath
is great for headaches. We call this a detox or healing bath. Jordan alluded to this earlier
when he was talking about essential oils. Taking one cup of Epsom salts, taking 20 drops
of essential oils like lavender and peppermint, other good ones can be chamomile is another
great one, and soaking in the tub for 20 minutes is tremendous. It helps reduce stress, and
really, this is very, very good, especially when it comes to tension headaches that can
start in the neck or jaw area, relieving those. So again, 20 minutes, soak in a hot bath with
essential oils and Epsom salts goes a long way. Jordan:Absolutely. Stretching and moving.
You know what’s really frustrating, I occasionally, and just probably once a year, get a headache
where when I stand up, it’s like someone’s punching me multiple times, like that kind
of hollow head, boom boom boom. And then when you stand up, you, like, make this really
scary face, so it’s hard to get up and want to move around. You know what would be great
if you have a headache, go outside, take your shoes off, and walk on the grass, or if you
live on a coast, walk on the beach. We know that that lowers cortisol levels. We know
that lowers certain adrenaline and adrenaline-like hormones, but that’s really good. But if you can do some stretching and moving
followed by a bath, that could be really, really good. Try to do it in a way that’s
easy. And you know what you’re doing is you’re really sort of diffusing the circulation.
Because when you have a headache and you’re all balled up, everything is focused on that.
Stretching and moving also takes your mind off things. That’s part of it. Your headache’s
worse when you’re wallowing in your headache misery. So, get out and move a little bit. Dr. Axe:Absolutely. We got a question here,
which is an excellent question here from Sandra. She says, “Can you drink or can organic coconut
water be used for hydration as well?” Jordan:From a long-term standpoint, yes. But
tried-and-true, the water cure works. I really recommend using just water, as pure as you
can find, certainly filtered. I have not tried it with coconut water. But because there’s
sugars in it and it still would require more digestion, I’m guessing it’s not going to
have the same effect. Dr. Axe:All right, great advice. Number 11
here, the cayenne muscle rub. Now, we’ve all seen the commercials, where people are using
something that is hot and cold in a cream, rubbing that on an area and getting relief.
You know, that’s one really the benefit of when you’re consuming a food that is hot and
spicy versus a food that is cooling, both of them, one constricts, one dilates, what
you want to do is use them in combination. So you can actually do a muscle rub, and cayenne
is great for this, because cayenne is a very hot spice that opens up the arteries. Remember
earlier, we talked about one of the causes of headaches is lack of circulation. Cayenne,
of all the things on this list by far, will promote the fastest and most immediate circulation
in the body. What I would do as a cayenne muscle rub, take
a teaspoon of cayenne, mix it with just a little bit of coconut oil, make a paste, and
rub it on an area. Now, another thing you can do is make your own warm, hot compound
by doing cayenne pepper, drops of peppermint oil with coconut oil, and rubbing it deep
on an area. Sometimes, again, you can do a hot compress on the area as well. But cayenne
pepper, really a master when it comes to improving circulation and it’s fantastic, especially
for tension headaches. Jordan:Absolutely. And there are few things
that we could have added to the list. Adaptogenic herbs, ashwagandha, rhodiola, schisandra,
fungi such as cordyceps and reishi, lowering long term cortisol exposure is really great.
A lot of people have headaches because of stress, thus my joke about getting a babysitter.
But how many people say, “You’re a pain in the neck. You’re making my head hurt. My head
hurts just thinking about it.” Obviously, people’s heads hurt a lot. And following these
11 headache remedies can make a huge difference. One of them, water is practically free, and
I promise you it’ll work so often. So, here’s a good recap. What we want to start
with is magnesium, magnesium in the form of supplements, fruits and vegetables, particularly
green leafies, magnesium oil that you can spray or rub on, and Epsom salt in the bath,
really great. Dr. Axe:Great stuff. Going gluten-free is
getting gluten, potentially casein and other food triggers, out of the diet. Here’s the
key, just eat real food, get rid of the processed stuff. Jordan:Peppermint and lavender essential oil
are amazing. Lavender, you can apply neat or straight up. You can breathe it in or inhale
it, the olfactory nervous system will create peace and harmony with lavender oil. Peppermint’s
a little invigorating. Combine the two and a carrier oil, such as olive, jojoba or coconut,
and rub it where it hurts, and you will be very glad you did. Dr. Axe:Well, the chiropractic care, one of
the most powerful natural treatments for getting rid of both migraine and tension headaches.
Again, seek out a wellness chiropractor for treatment. Jordan:And if you’re somebody who wants to
naturally treat, remedy migraines, try butterbur extract or feverfew, available at your local
health food store. Ask the person working there which brand they recommend. This works
so well in certain people. Dr. Axe:Yeah, I’m going to hit on a couple
here. B-complex, again, we talked about B6 supporting circulation. B-vitamins are also
critical for liver detoxification, so again, getting these in your diet is great for both
helping headaches but also preventing them in the future. And getting bone broth contains
some really, really crucial amino acids and also other things like hyaluronic acid, glucosamine,
chondroitin, which are good for the joints, good for headaches, especially as Jordan mentioned,
a broth that is cooked at a higher temperature for a shorter period of time. Jordan:Absolutely. And stay hydrated and more
importantly, use the water cure for headaches. Drink eight ounces of water as soon as you
feel it, ten minutes later, another eight ounces of water, don’t eat in between, maybe
wait a little bit after that to eat. I really think dehydration is a big cause of this. And one thing we didn’t mention I wanted to
bring up, some people have headaches because of jaw misalignment. Chiropractic can help
but also, seek out a biological dentist. So for me, I’m a tooth grinder, I don’t think
it’s at night. Nicki hasn’t told me that. But I clench. So I wear a night mouth guard
to try to get everything aligned. Not that I’ve had headaches as a result, but those
type of things can really cause issues. So make sure that your jaw is functioning in
good shape. Dr. Axe:Yeah, remember, take a detox bath
at night. Use some of those essential oils, lavender, chamomile, peppermint with some
Epsom salts in a bath to relax and relieve your tension headache. Jordan:And get up and move gently. Pull your
shoes off, walk outside, connect with the earth. They call it “earthing” or grounding,
helps to reduce stress. Also take some adaptogenic herbs, rhodiola, ashwagandha, eleuthero, schisandra.
They’re really amazing. Dr. Axe:Yeah. And try a cayenne muscle rub.
Again, they increase circulation in the area. Well guys, this has been Jordan Rubin and

Ohio Attorney Reveals What Makes A Strong Personal Injury Claim

Ohio Attorney Reveals What Makes A Strong Personal Injury Claim


Now as a personal injury attorney who is constantly
bombarded by people who may have been in an accident last week, last month, last year. Some people have very significant injuries,
some people may have more soft tissue type injury. How do you make a determination as to the
cases that you accept? Do you have a formula? Obviously you want people to be happy with
your services. How do you make that determination as to if
this is a case that you’re going to be able to help that person? Jonathan, that’s a great question, and it’s
a hard question. In some cases, well the first issue is, is
there liability? You can talk to the person and you can get
a pretty good feel for was the other person…just because the other person was cited by the
police doesn’t necessarily mean that they were…the other person was at fault. But you can hear the facts, get the police
report preliminarily. Or just even over the phone, make a pretty
good determination that there’s responsibility…Sometimes there may be partial responsibility, but clearly
you can pretty well decide…you get a rear end collision, left of center, T-bone intersection,
failure to yield the right of way…So you want to know what the liability is, and then
of course you want to know was there significant car damage. We all know Jonathan, all these seminars that
we’ve seen — low impact, soft tissue cases where there’s no car damage and you can spend
a heck of a lot of money getting experts, and people can get hurt. The cars are built so good now that they take
the bulk of the hit, but it’s really really hard to convince a jury when you look at a
car and see no car damage at least on one of the cars because cars can underride. So I usually am looking for some type of significant
damage — the bumper, cover underneath the bumper has been bent — something like that. And then of course, how fast have they gone
to the doctor? Did they start going the day of? That’s the ideal situation. If they get a broken and severe injury, they’re
in the hospital — those are the kind of cases I take and I can add value. Now the ones that are a close call or are
maybe somebody’s been trying to handle the case themselves for a little while — it’s
been about 4 months out, the insurance company is starting to jerk them around, they’re getting
the picture. They come in and they’ve really only seen
the doctor a couple of times. Maybe they did go to the emergency room. That may or may not be a case that I can take
unless I can with my intuition and judgement kind of think well is this just a strain or
a sprain that’s going to heal up or are they having radiating pain down extremity and it
could be a disc injury, then that can be very severe and serious — I may go ahead and take
that case and follow it. And maybe they get better in 6 weeks, but
I think they need somebody in there to help guide them.

Can You Heal Your Injured Rotator Cuff?  (Shoulder Pain & Weakness)

Can You Heal Your Injured Rotator Cuff? (Shoulder Pain & Weakness)


Hi folks I’m Bob Schrupp physical therapist, Brad Heineck physical therapist, together we are the most famous physical therapists on the internet, in our opinion of course Bob, Brad can you heal your injured rotator cuff? That’s the question of the day, and we have that question a lot in our comments Yeah, I mean it’s a good question because it can be a rather severe injury But you know are we gonna cut right to it Brad? The answer? Yeah, Well the answer is of course it can heal yeah, we can’t guarantee 100% of them are gonna heal But a lot as a matter of fact We were just talking beforehand right off the top of our head Bob thought of one person, was he scheduled for surgery? They were if Therapy didn’t work he was going to have surgery and it depends on the grade of the tear too, sometimes It’s just a little hole through the tendon sometimes it’s a partial tear You know if it’s a complete tear or rupture where the muscle is actually starting to retract obviously That’s the case where it’s not going to heal, but our movement’s gonna be almost nil But we had a woman that she was scheduled and the doctors didn’t offer therapy And she had to ask for therapy, and she ended up having full recovery without surgery, so it’s definitely worth the try And we want to give you some hope, again with Jay I’m sorry maybe shouldn’t say his name, hi Jay He actually Really had a great recovery. I mean he’s a rock climber so Anyways there’s seven steps, and if you can get through some of those, well there’s people first By the way if you are new to our channel. Please take a second to subscribe to us We provide videos on how to stay healthy fit pain-free And we upload every day also all this week Brad and I are begging people to like us on Facebook. Please please please Okay, so there’s seven steps if you can get through these first seven steps There’s a very good chance you’re gonna have a full recovery, okay, so I’m not going from After the injury to throwing a hardball But we’re doing the most critical Aspect of it and initially when you have that injury the first thing you need to do if it’s in pain And you got pain going down the arm, and there’s some swelling in there is get a cold pack out yeah There’s inflammation so you want to knock that down You may want to do some ibuprofen if that works well for you Cold pack and rest just give it a few days to settle down and then Once you start feeling a little bit better then This is probably the first everyone agrees with this is Cadman’s or the pendulum exercise If this is your injured shoulder you’re gonna get over and just let gravity Stretch it out a little bit get it moving forward and backwards you know and you can work right to left You can work circles okay, but you’re gonna get over because this position here if I look at it here I’m actually raising it this high and oftentimes the injured shoulder, it hurts to get that Elevation that much flexion and motion and actually if you go a little bit further I mean if you get it swinging this high You’re already that high so keeping the motion while it’s healing You want me to show the pillows Brad? Yeah The next rule is you got those are the first two ice and rest, get it moving with the pendulum exercise And this kind of all fits in the same time ranges, avoid sleeping on it which can be a real problem Yeah, so first I mean ideally you’re gonna try to sleep off the shoulder, so let’s say I injured this one I’d rather be sleeping on my good shoulder and Then you can actually support this one and actually put one by the side and one underneath the arm You want that shoulder in that loose pack position, it’s gonna heal better. It’s amazing how much more comfortable You’ll be if this is the injured shoulder and you put a few pillows to Support that arm and get it in the right position and even if you’re laying on your back Brad You’re gonna want to make sure that you have a pillow underneath it to keep it supported, now if you just cannot For some reason you feel like you have to sleep on that shoulder you’ve been doing it for a hundred years, right? I just had a patient like that he He’d fall asleep do his best and then he’d wake up and shoulder was killing him because he would just By habit in the middle of his sleep turn over and then the pain would wake him up. Oh yeah exactly So what we’re gonna do Is we’re going to create the canal so you’re gonna put a pillow here Maybe a smaller pillow here you got your head pillow here You might even have two And you just go like through this and here’s my painful shoulder And now I’m not laying it on the shoulder and you can even lay back a little bit like this and get off the point of it And it’s just gonna be a lot more comfortable You got to allow that shoulder to heal so you got to make sure it’s in a position so it can Yeah, if it’s allowed to be in the comfortable position 24/7 versus Healing and doing the right thing in the day, and then irritating at night by sleeping right on it and grinding it out That’s no good. You know Brad with the Kadman’s too do you mind if I mention the Mulligan one? Probably the back of a chair so You know after you’ve been doing the Kadman’s for a while and things have calmed down you can also do this one Just because I want you to make sure that That we’re no longer getting that impingement that might have caused the tear in the first place So you’re gonna find a chair you’re gonna push down against the chair And you’re gonna keep pushing down pushing down pushing down and then come back up again And that’s trying to help set that shoulder down in the socket So that it’s not putting as much pressure on the tendon anymore This one when you do it should feel better as you’re doing it. It shouldn’t create any sharp pain Just in case there’s something else going on but You’ll know it’s the right thing It’s like oh now I can move it it feels better with this and this one along Once you’re doing the Kadman’s once you’re doing this one, You can do these every hour, this isn’t something you do once a day I want you to try to do this five to ten times an hour, and then you’re gonna see some results Oh, yeah I meant five to ten reps an hour Every hour I mean maybe eight to ten times a day or whatever you got time for So all right next one Brad. Oh by the way, Kadman’s it’s the same as the pendulum I know I called it a pendulum before but therapists kind of do that with that particular exercise Next thing is to start strengthening Once you get some movement, and we’re going to start strengthening and we oftentimes will start with isometrics You could go up to a wall And here’s the motion, we call them outies or innies and that works the rotator cuff muscles If you go up to a wall, I’m gonna go out you go up to a wall You can push there, and there’s just an isometric and hold it for about six to eight seconds, and then do the other direction Here if you happen to have some tubing You can do it like this get some strong tubing if you got a Something to hold it like a wall anchor, and I’m just gonna hold it here And I’m gonna come over this way and hold it here, with tension on it That’s a good point so So you step out a little bit even and hold it. Yeah. I’m not gonna just hold it here With tension and just hold it and that’s a real nice way to start because once you get strong enough the very next step is get some tension off of there and Start working this exercise and internal rotation probably is going to be the easier one to do to start So this is the outie one, I’ll do it on this arm so that you can see it better That’s a really good idea To make sure your mechanics are right you take a little towel roll or something of this and you put it right there and That forces you to have good mechanics And if that falls down that means your elbow came too far away from your ribs You don’t have to have it as long as you keep your elbow there, and these outies are one of the key exercises and then we do want to add Posture, scapular retraction bring in the shoulder blades together, we can show how we’re squeezing them together By the way the thing under the elbow here or the arm, they do that in golf too Golfers glove. Yep to try and keep your arm So you don’t go flying out like this when you’re swinging, sure it’s amazing how things all fit together It’s kinda like physics yeah there we go Now we’re gonna go on to the next thing is we need a big ball Bob So once you get things We got some the isometrics innies and outies with motion and it starts to feel better that way Then we want to start getting some strength and movement If this is my sore shoulder both hands, the good one is going to help The weak one and if you can do this And actually come up to here too, it’s starting to feel pretty good Then the next step is to take the strong or the uninvolved hand away and use the injured arm and see if you can do that and push by itself And I have my patients I say roll right up Don’t let your hand, sometimes people think they have to have their hand glued down to the ball Cuz you can get a lot more motion if he goes way down, now look how high up He really is, want to stand up, look at that so and the ball’s supporting the weight so it takes a lot off and Once this becomes good, and you’re feeling stronger at this point you can start to lift your shoulder up, and it’s feeling pretty good Then you’re gonna take the ball and go to the wall so I call it the ball up the wall exercise He’s using both arms to start off with, you’re kind of getting active assistive device Wait Brad, this is a very good suggestion. I have not done this. I am gonna incorporate this Ball up the wall, there’s nothing better, then once both arms work well Then you take the weak arm the injured one And then you start to incorporate that and then you can also put a little pressure on the ball and lean onto it Which causes more co-contraction on the Joints and really have good posture while you’re doing these Yep, good posture and because you want that shoulder to be supported by its base And also I don’t know what else I was gonna say yeah, that’s good That goes with age Bob, it happens to me all the time so when you get to this point and you can do this one arm You got to be feeling really good And we’ve got some advanced strengthening exercises if you want to be a thrower or something like that Well if you’re up to one arm you’re doing pretty good You’re starting to get back to normal, but there are more exercises that are a little more advanced yeah And we have those, just look it up on Bob and Brad and rotator cuff for throwers is a good one for example So I want you to be careful Bob about anything that you do and you know if you’re not careful have fun Alright sounds good. Thanks for the advice Brad

3 Steps to Prepare Your Finances for Natural Disasters — consumerfinance.gov

3 Steps to Prepare Your Finances for Natural Disasters — consumerfinance.gov


Natural disasters can happen anywhere. You can protect yourself by planning ahead. Consumerfinance.gov has the information you need to make a plan and help safeguard your financial future in the event of a disaster. Whether you’re at risk of hurricanes, tornadoes,
blizzards, wildfires, or earthquakes, here are three steps you can take right now to
protect yourself financially and weather any storm: Step one: download FEMA’s
Emergency Financial First Aid Kit and fill it out. Gathering all of the paperwork and filling
out the forms may take some time but it’ll be worth it if disaster strikes. Once you complete the kit you will have everything
you need in one place. You’ll have gathered important documents
like your ID and your social security card. You’ll have written down the phone numbers
and account numbers to your credit card companies, utility companies, insurance companies, and
more. If you need to apply for disaster aid or contact
your insurance company you’ll want this info on hand. Step two: find a safe space to store
the kit and the documents you gathered. Consumerfinance.gov recommends that you
make a copy, and store the original and the copy in separate places. If it’s digital, password protect it, and
if it’s printed or on a thumb drive, make sure to store it in a waterproof and fireproof
container. Step three: make sure you understand your
insurance options, and the extent of your coverage in case of a disaster. Renters, homeowners and auto insurance
policies generally don’t cover all aspects of a disaster. You may need to look into specialized coverage
like earthquake insurance and flood insurance. A weekend of prep now can save you months
of frustration and lots of money if your property is damaged in a disaster. For more information on how you can protect
your property and finances, and to download an emergency financial first aid kit before
disaster strikes, visit consumerfinance.gov/prepare.

How to Use a Tourniquet

How to Use a Tourniquet


So I’m going to show you how to make a basic improvised tourniquet using the contents of an
everyday family first aid kit. Within your first aid kit you should have a calico
triangular bandage and a pair of Tuff Cut scissors. Just remember that if you are
using your Tuff Cut scissors in order to tighten your tourniquet, then you will lose those scissors because you won’t be able to access them because they’ll be caught up. So if you don’t want
to lose your scissors, an ordinary table knife
is a very good option or something that is strong
enough that you can use because you are going
to be winding that up in order to create the pressure you need to stop the bleeding. So the first thing you need to do is get your triangular
bandage out of the packet and fold it into a broad bandage. So you’ll will fold it like that, you’ll fold it like this, and you’d fold it again. A tourniquet shouldn’t be less
than four centimetres wide because if you have it too narrow, it will actually cause localised damage because you’re going to put this on tight. The most important thing with tourniquets is that you put them on tight enough. If you put them on and you’re pushing the veins but the arteries are still bleeding, then the arteries will bleed in then they come out of the wounds because there’s no venous
return for them to come through. So if you’re using a tourniquet it needs to be put on really tight. And to put it on really tight, it will hurt the casualty a lot. Once you have made the decision that direct pressure will
not stop the bleeding, and you’ve made the decision
to go and use a tourniquet, then you will never be
undoing it or removing it. It can only be removed by a
doctor in a hospital setting. You need to explain to the
casualty that it will hurt them, however this is stopping the blood loss, and it will save their lives. Okay so you’ve got a wide bit of very strong material to be used as your tourniquet, and then you’ve got a pair
of scissors or a table knife to be used as your windlass to wind it up. Now we need a casualty. So you’ve made the decision
that direct pressure is insufficient to stop the bleeding. There is a lot of pulsating blood. This is serious, putting on
an improvised tourniquet, and not something you would do lightly. If the wound is here, what you’re trying to
do is put the tourniquet on a single bone. You’ve got two bones here, one bone here, single bone, as close
to the joint as possible because you want to save
as much tissue as possible. So you’d be looking to put
the tourniquet on there. If it was on a knee joint, you would never put a
tourniquet over the knee, but you’d put it just above. And if the wound was above the elbow, you’d put it five
centimetres above the wound. So you get your broad arm
bandage that you folded, and you put that round the arm like this, and you tie a knot tightly like that. You then get whatever you’re
going to use as your windlass to wind it up. This case we’re using a
pair of Tuff Cut scissors, and you are going to
tie that over the top, again like this. And then what you would do
is you would wind this up. So this is your windlass, and you’re going to wind
it as hard as you can in order to stop all the
blood coming out of the wound. Then what you do is you will need a second triangular bandage
or a second piece of material, and you would tie that
round in order to secure it, to make sure that that doesn’t unwind. It’s really important you
put this on tight enough, and it will hurt you a lot. So even if she is screaming with pain and asking you to remove it, once you have made the decision
to put this tourniquet on, it will only be removed
by a medical professional or a doctor in a hospital environment. And then really importantly, you need to write the time
that you applied this, and you need to get your
casualty transferred to emergency medical help very quickly.

First Aid Treatments : How to Treat Chigger Bites

First Aid Treatments : How to Treat Chigger Bites


You know one of the insects that can cause
a great deal of discomfort after being bitten is the common chigger bite. Hi I’m Captain
Joe Bruni and what we are going to talk about is how to treat the common chigger bite. Chigger
bites can cause a great deal of itching and discomfort. Wash the area with soap and water,
and then apply some type of hydro-cortisone type cream to the area. Trying to eliminate
the itching and scratching that can come from chigger bites. Also there’s some commercially
made anti chigger bite types of products available over the counter and through prescription.
Also commonly what has been found to bring some relief and work are things like anti
lye shampoo, applied to the area and left in place over night.There have been reports
of limited use of petroleum jelly and even clear nail polish applied to the area, but
these won’t be as effective as using some type of commercial product designed for chiggers
or some type of anti lye shampoo. I’m Captain Joe Bruni, stay safe and we’ll see you next
time.

East Prov. firefighters handle house fire Sunday morning


(JP) WHILE SO MANY OF US (JP) WHILE SO MANY OF US WERE TRYING TO BEAT THE HEAT TODAY, OTHERS HAD NO CHOICE BUT TO BE OUT IN THE SWELTERING CONDITIONS. EYEWITNESS NEWS REPORTER BRIAN YOCONO WAS ON THE SCENE OF A HOUSE FIRE WITH EAST PROVIDENCE CREWS TODAY… HE SHOWS US HOW THEY RESPOND DIFFERENTLY TO A CALL WHEN THE TEMPERATURE PUSHES 90. I WAS READING THROUGH INFORMATION FROM THE CENTERS FOR DISEASE CONTROL ABOUT WORKING IN EXTREME HEAT. FIRE FIGHTERS ARE LISTED AMONG THE POSITIONS AT RISK FOR HEAT STRESS, WHICH CAN LEAD TO HEAT STROKE, EXHAUSTION, CRAMPS, AND RASHES. WITH THE TEMPERATURE ALREADY IN THE 80s BY MID- MORNING SUNDAY, YOU CAN IMAGINE HOW HOT THIS SCENE WAS ON WATERMAN AVENUE IN EAST PROVIDENCE. Battalion Chief Glenn J. Quick – East Providence Fire we had a fire in the rear of the building. fire companies advanced the hose line to the rear of the building and put the fire out pretty quickly. BATTALION CHIEF GLENN J. QUICK TELLS ME THE CALL FOR A FIRE IN THE BACK OF THIS SINGLE FAMILY HOME WENT TO A SECOND ALARM BECAUSE OF THE HEAT. “The fire fighters, they carry about 50-60 pounds of gear and they get pretty worn out pretty quickly at a fire with the heat index approaching the 90s.” CREWS RESCUED THREE PETS. THE FIRE WAS CONTAINED TO A REAR ADDITION. HOLE CUT IN THE ROOF TO LET SMOKE AND HEAT ESCAPE. “we were really worried it was going to spread over the back wall of the original building and that’s a concern with balloon construction and these types of structures.” WHILE THE CLEAN-UP CONTINUED, FIRE FIGHTERS TOOK TURNS IN THE SHADE, SEEKING RELIEF. COLD WATER AND FANS ON SCENE TO HELP THEM COOL OFF. I ASKED BATTALION CHIEF QUICK HOW HE PREPARES HIS CREWS WHEN THE FUTURECAST SHOWs SEVERAL DAYS OF HOT WEATHER. “we just make sure all the on-duty fire fighters are well hydrated both at the fire house and at an incident like this.” AMONG THE C-D-C’S RECOMMENDATIONS FOR LIMITING HEAT STRESS IS INCREASING THE NUMBER OF WORKERS FOR THE TASK BEING DONE, WHICH IS WHAT THE FIRE DEPARTMENT. I’M BRIAN YOCONO, EYEWITNESS NEWS.
