What is homocysteine
Homocysteine is a normal amino acid found in the body. It is formed by "demethylation" of another amino acid called methionine that is abundant in meat, fish, cheese...
Homocysteine should then be immediately re-methylated into another chemical S-adenosy methionine - a very important anti-depressant, anti-arthritic, anti-ageing antioxidant...
When this doesn't happen, we get sick and sore. And die prematurely.
This is a very interesting book for everyone who wants to be healthy, painfree, and enjoy your grandchildren growing up, without Alzhiemers.
Your homocysteine levels can be dramatically reduced by some very simple dietary
changes... read all about it. I recommend this book highly.
Many insurance companies now only pay for physical therapists to provide a chiropractic adjustment; that's in the face of powerful research proving that inclusion of DCs to perform their own technique would save them a good deal of money. One has to conclude that political medicine has gone off on another tack to contain our profession.
It's being successful with some doctors of chiropractic quitting. Others become involved in some dodgy practices, like demanding that patients sign up for a whole year of treatment in advance, in order to stay in business.
In recessionary times, the going is tough when the insurance won't pay.
Is the day approaching for a new Wilk versus the AMA and the insurance companies?
The chiropractic profession has tried hard to stay on the moral high ground; those who stoop to unscrupulous practices need to be exposed and disciplined if we are not to stoop to the low blows that medicine has often resorted to contain and eliminate us.
