4 Easy Steps: Declare Your Independence From Pain

4 Easy Steps: Declare Your Independence From Pain

4 Easy Steps: Declare Your Independence from Pain “My back for no apparent reason was so painful.  I couldn’t move.  After two days in bed a friend recommended I see Dr. Rosenfeld.  I could barely drive or sit when I came in.  This had happened several times in the past.   A medical doctor had given me muscle relaxers only.  They weren’t all that helpful. I experienced miraculous results after visiting Dr. Rosenfeld.  I am able to do more than before in movement and strength with no pain. My whole outlook each day is more positive and I feel more energized.” GM Use RICE method–Rest, Ice, Compression, Elevation—for initial 24-72 hours after an injury.  Ice for 20 min about every hour or two. Then alternate: heat 10 min, ice 10 min, heat 10 min.  Eat a diet rich in whole, unprocessed foods emphasizing magnesium and calcium foods found in: kale, collard greens, almonds, blackberries, mustard greens, oatmeal, oranges, navy beans and sunflower seeds.  Avoid or limit foods that contribute to acidity such as refined sugars, caffeine, salty foods and alcohol.  Limit foods high in saturated fats, including red meats, dairy products, warm-water shellfish and partially-hydrogenated oil. Drink chlorophyll-rich, green drinks, such as extracts of wheat grass.  Eat more fatty fish (mackerel, herring and salmon) and preferably wild. Decrease animal fat consumption as it is a primary source of arachidonic acid, a precursor of a number of inflammatory prostaglandins.  Identify and avoid food allergens. We have specific tests to check for food allergies. Calcium and Magnesium relax the muscles.  Analgesic Herbs: Chamomile, Skullcap, Passion Flower, Kava Kava and White Willow Bark are sedative...

Even Einstein spoke about light energy! Cold Laser Therapy has been proven to show major advances in the healing process and what is possible for chronic pain and injuries, neurological impairment and enhancing healing in many other medical conditions. “With over 200 clinical studies (double-blind, placebo-controlled and many more planned), and in excess of 2000 published articles on Low Level Laser Therapy, this innovative new technology has a well-documented research and application history. Having grown far beyond its distant Institutional Review Board (IRB) and experimental treatment status, Low level Laser Therapy is now being considered a therapy of choice for difficult pain management challenges including fibromyalgia and myofascial pain.” WHAT ARE THE GREAT BENEFITS OF COLD LASER THERAPY? This effective FDA approved therapeutic modality is non-invasive, requires no medications, is easy and safe to use and does not interact with the molecules in metal joint replacements or plastics. Research is demonstrating that Cold LASER (Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation) reduces pain by accelerating tissue repair and cell growth, reduces swelling and improves joint mobility, speeds up post-operative scar and wound healing, increases metabolic and vascular activity (improves circulation and immune response),stimulates nerve function, increases prostaglandin synthesis, enhances superoxide dismutase (SOD) levels, etc. HOW CAN A SHINING BLINKING RED...
