I encourage you to watch the video of this young man who died right around Christmas time.
If you have ever wondered about ‘life after death’ questions, this may renew your hope or questions.
I hope you enjoyed this inspiring video.
If you are facing death or just wondering what happens after you die, there is a fairly extensive collection of near death experiences at a website: near-death.com .
The stories told there have similar elements as the one told in this video by Ben Breedlove.
Doesn’t it almost seem like this guy lived on Earth just so that his video, carrying his message of life after death would become popular and help people who are worried or fear what might happen after they die?
He was a remarkable man with a remarkable message. The near-death.com site is also filled with stories about people who have had ‘near death experiences’ like Ben’s.
I do believe that life will continue for most people after death. I also believe that their is a time after death when you will ‘review’ your life and you will feel happy or sad about the things that you did based on the pain or joy that you brought to others. That is really something to think about, isn’t it?
You might consider reading the book, Falun Gong or if you feel more ‘advanced’ Zhuan Falun by Li, Hongzhi

I want to start by telling you a story.
I was playing frisbee one night. I stepped off a curb to catch the frisbee and felt something funny happen to my back when I did.
I was in a bit of pain so I sat down to sort it out.
I made the mistake of allowing someone who was on a Rugby team, who had experienced spinal manipulation before, wrench on my back.
TIP: never allow anyone who is not a licensed chiropractor or DO do that to you.
Of course, he thought he was helping. But I should have known better.
The pain did not go away.
The next morning, I got out of bed and immediately fell on the floor.
My back had completely locked up in pain. I was unable to stand up. The muscles had shortened themselves to the point where I could not stand.
This is how the body will guard itself when it perceives danger.
After crawling on the floor for ten minutes, I was able to partially stand, but I was in a lot of pain.
I could not walk properly. I made an appointment at an urgent care center.
How awful that this back problem happened to me! I was worried that I might have permanent problems.
The pain was great and my inability to move was awfully ridiculous. I was really worried that guy really hurt my back. The worse case scenario would be a disk problem!
Now, here is the interesting part. If you suffer from back pain you might want to pay attention.
The Doctor at the urgent care center told me that this is typical. He said the brain has a sort of reset button. The muscles tightened down to make me immobile because the body was worried that there was real damage there.
He said that the the only way to ‘reset the brain’ so that it would allow the muscles to become longer and less contracted was through stretching.
He did not mean that things would get better after a few days of stretching. This was going to take a lot of work and a lot of time. This was essentially the problem though, the body had to be coaxed into allowing the muscles to work normally again.
Oh, he did give me painkillers and muscle relaxers. But, the only long term fix was going to come through stretching. He said that it would be hard and even painful.
He was right about that.
Do not underestimate the amount of stretching that was needed to rehab my back.
I think the key point of this story is that after a doctor says you are safe to start stretching your back, it is going to be a long process to get your back back…
If you avoid the work, your body’s muscles may not elongate on their own and you could end up with chronic pain. This is something to think about.
Now, I have not tried this guy’s exercises out because I have developed my own stretching routing. But what he says on his site sounds plausible.
Remember to be cleared by your doctor before taking up any exercise program. Here is the site. Interesting stuff…
Please keep in mind that what I said here was said in general terms. For specific questions about your own unique health problems, you must consult your doctor for answers and advice.

I am still recovering from my bicycle accident on Friday. I have had the feeling that I have been walking around within a dream for the last couple of days.
This is very likely the result of a concussion received while being thrown to the ground when the front wheel got caught in some local trolley (public transport) rails that are unfortunately a part of the road in the local city.
I thought I was safe from such accidents because I opted to use mountain bike size tires. However, I did not realize that there are rails in this city that are even wider than the usual ones.
After examining the accident site, I have realized my mistake.
The hospital wanted to keep me for 2 days.
That seemed like a bit much.
Here is a picture of my face after the accident. Be forewarned I look very haggard in this picture. Click here to view

Bianca made a fantastic Cheese fondue today. We used a baguette from the local bakery that was enhanced with olive oil when it was made. Very tasty!

But, even if I am not: Happy New Year!
This last year for me has been a very busy one with many changes.
From business to personal life, I have been learning and changing.
I am not sure that there has been another time in my life that has seen so many changes.
This year, I must learn to speak and write better German.
Unfortunately, I am not as young as I was. I also received a recent bump on the head from a bicycle accident.
I hope that I will overcome the challenges and learn at least enough German to get by when visiting Germany where I now have a number or relatives.
Should be an interesting year!
Please be careful during any New Year celebration parties you may attend.
Be vigilant and protect your safety as well as the safety of those you love!

Happy New Year 2012
SOPA is a bill that many believe is designed to censor the Internet and concentrate power and control to the few rather than the many.
The successful redditors suggested that they might be able to turn their attention to one member of Congress or the Senate at a time. Picking out his skeletons, exposing them and even donating to their competitor’s campaigns.
The idea is to focus on one and dig up all of the dirt on him. This would be in response to supporting SOPA. – Or anything else the Redditors find appalling.
The question comes up whether this could be a new element to democracy and politics.
Could it be that voices could have meaning collectively?
Is it possible that a group could have more influence on what happens in Washington without engaging in dirty lobbying or without being a big corporation with a lot of money that can essentially ‘buy’ or ‘influence’ (same thing?) votes from corruptible politicians?
It will be interesting to see if this type of activity can have a meaningful and ultimately more positive impact on how our system works.
Many are outraged over the whole derivatives scandal and how many of the people who voted for, had input into and were responsible for shaping deregulation are now in positions of power and are supporting the continuity of what is believed by many to be a (derivatives) racket.
Furthermore, people are outraged that none of the people perceived as ‘crooks’ both in corporations and in government are going to jail, let alone losing their power positions.
What do you think? Could a group like the Redditors on the Internet form enough power to have an impact?

In other words, being denied coverage or denying payment for a condition you had before getting health insurance will become illegal.
That is a very good thing.
If we are going to have a functional health care system, we absolutely need to do away with the abomination of preexisting condition clauses and benefit caps.
Insurance companies have gotten away with not doing their job for a long time.
They have basically stolen from the people who need quality health care treatment.
Horror stories abound about these insurance companies practices and the hardships they have brought to people.
Another great thing about 2014 is they will no longer be able to cap what they pay any one person.
In the past, these predatory companies would cut you off from any future payments if your ‘lifetime’ benefit exceeded a certain amount.
Some medical problems can require long term and expensive care. These companies do not have the right to deny benefits on these grounds.
That’s why it is called insurance. The insurance company’s job is to take on the risk.
The worst part of this dirty behavior is that many people have become financially unable to climb out of a mountain of debt because insurance companies have conveniently dropped their coverage.
I think that any insurance company that has done this should be dissolved and not allowed to do business ever again. The owners of these businesses should be barred from ever creating another insurance business.
They have belied the public trust and should be punished.
How terrible that in their greed they have caused great and irreparable harm to a great number of people.
Disgusting, dirty and greedy behavior like this tears at the very fabric of society. It creates instability. All this for corporate greed.
The laws should have been changed a very long time ago.
Did you know that in Germany, they have had universal health care for well over 120 years?
Did you know that insurance companies there are not allowed to deny coverage for preexisting conditions? They are certainly not allowed to cut off benefits because they have ‘paid too much’ either.
What the US insurance companies have gotten away with for such a very long time is very disgusting.
But the danger still exists because these insurance companies invest a lot in lobbying our lawmakers. Let’s make sure they don’t get their way any longer.

In this video Richard Holden who has his own youtube channel under RichardHoldenDVM explains the problem with the US health care and insurance system.
Here is the video:
Mr. Holden explains what others have said before but have been largely ignored to this point.
General practitioners have been bypassed in too many ways. There needs to be someone overlooking your health care and it should NOT be the insurance company.
Even with doctors on staff they have too little information and history to make valid decisions with.
In addition, Mr. Holden addresses the question of why Insurance companies have been working hard to avoid paying. This is one of the most outrageous parts of the US health care system today. People who thought they were insured and even went so far as to have treatments pre approved by their insurance companies have found that the company will not pay when it comes right down to it.
When you are saddled with an impossible debt to pay, how do you pursue your version of the American Dream?
There have to be logical intelligence answers to these problems. The people who have been entrusted to uphold the rights and privileges of the American people must get to work ASAP.
There is no excuse for the injustices of this broken health care system.
It is time that a system is created that is able to do what it ought to do: Help sick people get well without burdening them with rediculous bills because some insurance company has decided that it is not going to pay for that finger to be sewn back on or for that treatment that is necessary to restore quality of life.

Date: December 27th, 2011.
She was found dead last night.
The girl was reported to be partially blind and deaf.
Her two sisters, fortunately, were unharmed.
They were all staying at the same neighbor’s house.
To the women of the world: Please watch your daughters and do not put them under the care of a male you are not 100% certain won’t harm your children.
There are too many men in the world who would take advantage of such trust. Children and teenagers, particularly girls, need extra protection.
I am sure the mother thought her girls were safe. This man was a family ‘friend’.
It is a known fact, that the majority of rapes and sexual abuse occur at the hands of someone the child already knows.
Please take care of your children until they are old enough to care for themselves.
It is still a very dangerous world out there.

It seems to me that in the long history of science, dentistry and medicine, that there should have been a solution to this problem by now.
Again, if there is one, it has been kept hidden.
It would be great to know if there was a simple substance we could easily apply to the teeth in an area where dentin is exposed that would cause the regrowth of enamel.
Dentists currently limit themselves to putting / molding some type of material over the area and either blending it to the color of the tooth if visible or leaving it alone if it is in a spot that is not visible when you smile.
It would be a great benefit to mankind if we knew the answer to this riddle and a way is found to stimulate the growth of the enamel.
Of course, this post was made in general and does not offer advice of any kind. If you have a question about your specific health or dental health situation be sure to ask your doctor for the answers to such questions.
