Lumps over top of hip / low back Video

Here’s a video I recently made about a fairly common situation that affects at least ten percent of people and that is lumps that form over the low back or across the top of the hip.  In most people who have them they are nothing to worry about.  However, in a small percentage of those who have them, they can cause severe back pain, often mimicking a herniated disc.  It is one of the most overlooked cause of back pain because most doctors are not familiar with them.

These are commonly called back mice.  Other medical term are multifidus triangle syndrome, episacral lipoma, lumbar fascial fat herniation, and iliac crest pain syndrome.

I made an earlier blog post about it   For More information go to:  http://discomfortfree.com/2010/11/lumps-in-low-back-top-of-hip/

Third Leading Cause of Death in the US

Dr. Peter Glidden talks about the third leading cause of death in the United States. Can you guess what it is.

On a personal note, in 1980 my mother suffered a severe stroke.  She lost total use of her right arm.  She learned to walk with a walker by moving her hip because she lost most function in her right leg.  She lost her ability to speak and to read and write.

She was 63 years old (a year older than I am now).  Never smoked, was never overweight, walked over two miles every day.  She developed diarrhea that persisted.  Possibly from the water or bird droppings on the berries and garden vegetables, who knows.

She went to a doctor who gave medicine that didn’t work, so got different medicine.  She’d been on it a few weeks when she had the stroke.  Coincidence?  If she had been shot in the head there would have been an investigation.  The results would have been the same.  After the stroke she was healthy but disabled.  She died 22 years later, a horrible quality of life. 

Salt is Good for You, Salt Additives Bad

I’ve got a video posted here by Dr. Leonard Coldwell.  Although the video is about curing cancer within weeks, that is not what I want to talk about.

Starting at about minute 4:18 he starts talking about salt.  And what he says I had never heard before.  “Very often table salt is one third sand, one third glass and one third salt.”

He goes on to say that the “sand” causes abrasion in the arteries and they start to bleed.  Then cholesterol comes in to stop the bleeding.  That in turn narrows the arteries.  But the problem is not too much cholesterol and not too much salt, but the additives in table salt.

 Now I always thought that salt was salt.   So I looked on my box of IODIZED salt at home (a store brand).

Here are the ingredients listed.  They were listed all in upper case letters:

SALT AND SODIUM SILICOALUMINATE, DEXTROSE, POTASSIUM IODINE 0.006%, AND SODIUM BICARBONATE

The additive of concern here is sodium silicoaluminate which is added to keep the salt from caking.

According to Wikipedia, Sodium silicoaluminate, may also be listed as:
Amorphous sodium aluminosilicate
sodium aluminosilicate
aluminium sodium salt,
aluminosilicic acid,
sodium salt,
sodium aluminium silicate,
aluminum sodium silicate
sodium silico aluminate
sasil

Note there are other additives that are used for non-caking as well.

I just bought some Kosher salt which had no additives.

NOTE: Many brands of Sea Salt ALSO have non-caking additive. So if you want to avoid this problem — read the label. (And maybe buy a salt grinder).

Now I looked at several places on the web which had arguments of sea salt vs. table salt vs. what ever other kind of salt someone was selling.

Nowhere did anyone mention the abrasion of arteries from table salt as the reason for high blood pressure as did Dr. Leonard Coldwell in the video

Whether this is true, I personally don’t know.  Let’s hear your opinion.

Low Back Pain? Dance theTwist!

Are you old enough to remember the Twist?

Chubby Checker made it popular back in 1960.  It was all the dance rage.  See the video below to see how it goes.

In spite of the guy in the last second of the video, the dance is actally good for most backs.

Now if you have something structurally wrong with your spine and this does not feel good or your doctor says you shouldn’t, then don’t.

But in most cases the pain is in the low back muscles and the nerves within those muscles (muscles are full of nerves) are unhappy.  Why?  Because if the muscles probably aren’t getting adequate blood supply.  That not only restricts the oxygen and nutrients but slows down the elimination of waste products from the muscles.  And that pisses off the nerves and when they are pissed off enough they will let you know.

Well a dance like the Twist (or hey remember the hula hoop) gets the low back muscles moving – which encourages the blood flow.  Also to the muscles along the spine.  And the ligaments between the bones will appreciate getting some spinal movement too.

But before you go “Twisting the Night Away” limit yourself to one dance a day for the first few days to see how you feel the day after.

Now if you have bad knees, Twisting may not be your best exercise.
