Blood Pressure Cuff

Blood pressures taken in a doctors office have been shown to be less reliable than those taken at home due to factors like traffic stress getting to the office, worry about illness, and wait times (frequently experienced in other offices, of course <smirk>). Use this to check your blood pressure progress toward your goals and attempt to reduce your need for medication.

Vitamix Professional Blender

Vitamix is a great blender to completely blend entire fruits and vegetables into a fiber and juice smoothie. I agree that it is better to get the nutrition as a real meal, but this allows us to retain the fiber that is present in the fruits and veggies. There are so many recepies to get flavors and nutrients that you may have been desiring. And, if you drink your smoothies slowly, you wont get a rapid rise in your sugar levels. This is a perfect way to get that nutrition when you don’t have the time, energy or hunger to get the nutrition that you know you need. And cleanup is so easy.

Snore stopping, sleep apnea device.

The Tranquility PRO 2.0 Professional Bruxism Night Guard is the most advanced and effective product on the market. With a smaller overall size than the competing brand. Tranquility PRO 2.0 Professional Bruxism Night Guard works well because it re-positions the mouth which in turn opens the airway that gets restricted by the soft pallet when sleeping.

Mobility

The worst thing you can do for a sore back is to slouch when you walk. Unfortunately the back pain induces a stooped position. Canes seem like they should fix the problem, however the downward facing handles force the person to lean forward and effectively slouch again. By using athletic walking sticks instead of canes, you can keep the fists pointing forward as you walk and retain an upright walking posture that won’t contribute to further back pain. 

Athletic Walking Sticks

Nimbo Posterior Walker

Canes seem like they should fix the problem, however the downward facing handles force the person to lean forward and effectively slouch again.

Nimbo Handles for Walker

The worst thing you can do for a sore back is to slouch when you walk. Unfortunately the back pain induces a stooped position. When your injuries and pains have forced you to rely on a walker, their handles perpetuate the stooped posture and relegate patients to worse and worse back pain and less independence. By getting a posterior walker in which the handles face forward, you can allow yourself to stand upright as you walk reducing pain. By reducing that stooped posture, you can even build strength without pain, eventually allowing you to stop using the walker all together! This almost never occurs when you settle for the standard walker. But make sure to get the walker too, this is just the link to the forward handles!

Nimbo Walker with Seat

By reducing that stooped posture, you can even build strength without pain, eventually allowing you to stop using the walker all together! This almost never occurs when you settle for the standard walker. But make sure to get the platforms for the handles too! This walker is specifically equipped with a seat if the walks you take often require a brief rest in the middle.

Back Health

Leg Wedge Pillow

For those with problems with back pain that need their legs elevated while sleeping, or for those who need their legs elevated to prevent edema, this is the key tool. Pillows will not retain their shape to continue holding the feet high enough to drain the swelling. Lazy-boys do not elevate the legs high enough above the heart to reduce swelling. This leg wedge pillow is comfortable to the legs and keeps the feet high enough that the swelling reduces dramatically after a few hours depending on how severe the edema.

Tempur-Pedic Cloud Pillow

Neck pain is often a problem that is made worse by sleep position. The cloud pillow allows the shape of the pillow to be manipulated and the shape retained all night. You can sleep on your back and wedge the pillow over a shoulder to support your head facing he side. This can reduce snoring or reduce back pain that can be caused in side sleepers.

Wedge Pillow

Lying in bed may not be as comfortable for those with severe acid reflux or with various back problems. An elevating hospital bed can be expensive and even uncomfortable. The tempur pedic material in this makes the semi-upright position much more comfortable.

Side Sleeping Wedge Pillow

CLINICALLY PROVEN. MedCline Reflux Relief Bed Wedge and Pillow System has been validated in 5 independent clinical trials. This system is proven to be the most effective treatment for heartburn, regurgitation, coughing, choking, nausea and many other symptoms of acid reflux & gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD).

Hand Held Massager

Often stretching is difficult or insufficient to get muscles to relax and relieve pain. This is a rechargeable massager that can help loosen the muscles. It is important to focus on technique when using this, so if you wonder how it might apply to your muscle pain, please look at our patient education section to watch a demonstration of this device on your piriformis and psoas muscles in the low back and leg.

Back Extension Bench

Sculpt your way to perfection with some assistance from the Fitness Reality X-Class Light Commercial Multi-Workout Abdominal/Hyper Back Extension Bench. This multi-purpose bench boasts a seven-position adjustable bench, four-position adjustable seat, and a preacher curl/leg development attachment that lets you work every core muscle group with a little bit of tinkering. From training to toning, this bench is an ideal tool, supporting up to 1,500 lbs.

Resistance Bands

Great with any workout. This resistance band set can be integrated seamlessly with every popular workout program including Yoga, Pilates and more. Or use them for general exercise, stretching, strength training, power weight programs. The included carry bag makes it easy to take your bands with you and do any workout away from home or your home gym.

Heating Pad

This is a better muscle relaxant than any medication and has fewer side effects. All muscle relaxants are no better a relaxant than Vodka and they work in essentially the same way with the same problems of side effects and addiction. But a heating pad increases blood flow and allows the muscles to relax. Do this with sore muscles as you go to bed instead of taking that Soma or Flexeril.

 
 

Supplements

L-Methyl Folate

Those with MTHFR mutation are not able to process the vitamin Folate and can thus have problems with blood clotting and with nerve function that can express itself in many different ways. By taking this supplement you can reduce the risk of dangerous blood clots that might travel to the lungs, but it can also improve moods of those with MTHFR and depression. 

Papaya Leaf Extract

This product helps resolve bruises faster. This ingredient Papain is actually the ingredient in meat tenderizer. It works naturally as an enzyme to break down proteins. When you form a bruise, that is a collection of iron and proteins which have woven around it to contain it. By helping this to breakdown, the bruise will go away usually 3 times as fast.

Wellness

Mentholatum

When nasal passages get inflamed, irritated or even worse when dried by the air we breathe overnight. This ointment can be use by rubbing it INSIDE the nostrils, unlike VICK’s vaporub which should never be rubbed inside. When you wake you will feel like your nose was healed, even if there are other symptoms of your cold still lingering.

Zilactin

This is a key medicine to treat cold sores. In addition to getting Valtrex to kill the virus, this medication will attack the sore locally. This medication is better than Abreva because it creates a solid sealed barrier between your cold sore and the world so you cannot accidentally spread it to another part of your body or to a loved one giving you that welcome home kiss before they realize you had a cold sore.

Books

Undoing Depression, By Richard O'Connor

Like heart disease, says psychotherapist Richard O'Connor, depression is fueled by complex and interrelated factors: genetic, biochemical, environmental. In this refreshingly sensible book, O'Connor focuses on an additional factor often overlooked: our own habits. Unwittingly we get good at depression. We learn how to hide it, how to work around it. We may even achieve great things, but with constant struggle rather than satisfaction.

Wherever you go, There you are. Mindfullness., By Jon Kabat-Zinn

When Wherever You Go, There You Are was first published in 1994, no one could have predicted that the book would launch itself onto bestseller lists nationwide and sell over 750,000 copies to date. Ten years later, the book continues to change lives. In honor of the book's 10th anniversary, Hyperion is proud to be releasing the book with a new afterword by the author, and to share this wonderful book with an even larger audience.

Wheatbelly Diet, By William Davis

Dr. William Davis is responsible for exposing the incredible nutritional blunder being made by "official" health agencies: Eat more "healthy whole grains." The wheat of today is different from the wheat of 1960, thanks to extensive genetics manipulations introduced to increase yield-per-acre. Founder of the international online program for heart health, Track Your Plaque, his experience in thousands of participants uncovered how foods made of wheat actually CAUSED heart disease and heart attack. Eliminating wheat yielded results beyond everyone's expectations: substantial weight loss, correction of cholesterol abnormalities, relief from inflammatory diseases like arthritis, better mood--benefits that led to prevention of heart disease but a lot more benefits in other areas of health.
