If you’ve never been miserable when your Occipital, C1 or C2 is out, you really won’t understand. When you are that miserable and you’re shoving 2000 milligrams of Ibuprophen down your throat just to get through the day, things are bad. I can see why some people might just want to end it because the pain is so bad. That was me 6 years ago.
I probably haven’t mentioned it per se, but I have been having Chiropractic problems since 1992. More recently, it has been a lot to handle.
I have gotten better and my wife even noticed my personality change back to the more laid back “Tom” when my upper cervicals are not killing me. My T1, T2 area has also been a struggle.
Last week my normal Chiropractor at Palmer College of Chiropractic went on a mini vacation. I ended up with a different Doctor who was not used to me. He couldn’t adjust my Occipital last Wednesday which prompted him to go and look my most recent X-rays. When I saw him on Friday he wanted to know if anyone had ever gone over my X-Rays with me. I told him I had been given a brief idea of what was on them but nothing else.
As it turns out, I have some Arthritis in my spine, particularly in the lower cervical region and T1, T2 region.
Ok, now that I’m done feeling sorry for myself I can bring you to the title of this blog. The Lucky Number Seven is the seventh health protocol that Dr. D’Adamo has created. Number seven is for Arthritis.
Since I’m Blood Type O, here’s my protocol:
BLOOD GROUP O
1. N-acetyl glucosamine, 250-500 mg: 3-4 capsules, daily, away from food
2. Frankincense (Boswellia serrata), 500 mg: 1-2 capsules with meals
3. Deflect O (Lectin blocking formula): 2 capsules between meals
4. Sprouted Food Supplement (Live Cell O): 2 capsules daily
GENERAL RECOMMENDATIONS USABLE BY ALL GROUPS
1. Green Drink (Harmonia Deluxe): 1 Tbsp daily in juice or water.
2. NOTES: Fish oil should not be taken by women who are or could
become pregnant. Consult your physician first.
3. Niacinamide (Niacin) is almost always safe to take, though rare
liver problems have occurred at amounts in excess of 1,000 mg per day.
4. Phloxicin (NAP joint formula)
I’m going to shift the focus of my supplements to the above Protocol and look at this as a long term investment. I don’t want to be “a cripple” when I’m 60!
I do exercise 4 to 6 days a week. I run 3 times on Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday. I do specialized core and back exercises on Monday, Wednesday and Friday. As long as I keep up the regiment I should stay flexible and in shape.
