Chiropractic Benefits Your Life

Dr. Felix Starker asked me to share some photos of him riding his horse in a competition. He is an avid equestrian enthusiast and rides competitively - winning in his class at this show! Chiropractic is also his lifestyle and Dr. Felix Starker leads by example in improving the lives of others through his chiropractic practice.

There is a case study about chiropractic treatment changing a life for the better that I recently shared on my blog. It’s about a 35-year-old white female elementary school teacher that suffered from chronic neck and midback pain for 5 years following a motor vehicle collision. The source: Journal of Molecular and Genetic Medicine.

In another article, I shared some important information dispelling the myth that Chiropractic adjustments only help musculoskeletal pain or injuries.

Truth: Chiropractic is proven to help musculoskeletal and organ health while also positively influencing every aspect of human performance. Read more about the subject here.

According to an article in Pool Safely drowning is a tragic cause of unintentional death among children ages 1 to 4, and drownings send an average of 5,900 children younger than 15 years of age to the emergency room each year. Practicing simple water safety steps can help keep your family safer around water.

If you are not sure where to begin, start with these steps:

Never leave a child unattended in or near waterTeach children how to swimTeach children to stay away from pool or spa drainsEnsure that all pools and spas – both in your backyard and at any public pool you may visit – have compliant drain coversInstall proper barriers, covers, and alarms on and around your pool and spaLearn how to perform CPR on children and adults When I bought a house with a swimming pool I immediately made sure that the pool was secure and that my children could all swim without getting into trouble. When visitors came over we always made sure that we were there to watch the children swimming.

Fishing Nets - Rhino Nets

Rhino Nets specialize in fishing nets. Because the owner, Kevin Williams, is an avid angler he decided to design and manufacture the perfect fishing net.

When I received a call from Kevin to create a website for his fishing nets I was amazed at the beauty of his nets. They look colourful and strong. The design is also something I’ve never seen before. After you’ve unhooked your catch you drop the fish into the net via a spring-loaded trap door. Now, only a seasoned fisherman would think of that.

The circular design is constructed of very strong materials, is collapsible for transportation, and comes with a portable stand that also can be taken apart. He even designed nifty bags that you can stow the fishing nets in. It is a neat and compact system. They also come in different colours to choose from.

If you go to their website, you will see all the beautiful products that I photographed for the website. There are keepnets and stands, weighing mats for anglers, bucket holder bags, fish…

School Photography Done Professionally

School photographs get taken every year of pupils in their school uniforms to create a lasting memory. The high performers usually line up with their collection of certificates, cups, and medals. It is a proud moment for them. Some of the pupils do so well academically and in sports that there's sometimes hardly any room for all their awards.

Other pupils, without the accolades, also proudly pose for their school pictures to be taken. They know that their parents want to see them at their best in their uniforms. The photos will be shown to grandparents, family, and friends.

For the photographer, it is a very busy occasion. The lighting has to be just right and an appropriate backdrop has to be set up. Not all the children are always in the mood for photographs so the school photographer has to get them to smile. Then there's a shirt to be tucked in or a tie to be straightened - which could spoil the photo. Or their hair isn't combed nicely. So attention to detail is impor…

Improvements in Quality of Life Through Chiropractic

Here is some interesting information about chiropractic treatment changing a life for the better. Once again Dr. Felix Starker has provided important and useful information about the benefits of chiropractic treatment.
Objective: To present a prospective case study on the increase of telomere length, improvement in nocturnal polyuria, neck and mid-back pain, autonomic nervous system adaptability, and health-related quality of life following correction of the sagittal cervico-thoracic spinal alignment and posture using chiropractic biophysics® (CBP®) technique.
Clinical features: A 35-year-old white female elementary school teacher presented with chronic neck and midback pain for 5 years following a motor vehicle collision as well as nocturnal polyuria. Examination and radiography revealed forward head posture and loss of cervical lordosis consistent with vertebral subluxation. Patient telomere length was derived from nucleated white blood cells obtained from a blood test. Qualit…

A Beautiful Spider Lily - Updated

Life is constantly changing with challenges and decisions every single day. Time is a good teacher because what was very good last year can change to something totally opposite this year. That is very true when it comes to certain people. You think you know them. But you only know the false side they are so good at bringing to the fore. What they allow you to see. Deep down inside lies something they have become good at hiding - something the opposite to their day to day character - ugliness.
On the other hand the majestic white spider lily flower above is genuine. No hidden dangers. It's pure. It is exactly as beautiful as it is. Nothing false about it. Maybe that's why good women love flowers. When you give them with a good heart they tell a story of honesty. Flowers are pure and beautiful. So you are giving something pure and beautiful - a perfect gift.
This spider lily flower was photographed with my Canon camera using a 50 mm lens on today the 11th of February 2018. I to…

Chiropractic Delivers - Chiropractor Kempton Park - Dr Felix Starker

Chiropractic helps balance hormones by reducing central nervous system dysfunction that exists due to vertebral subluxation. Our family chiropractor, Dr Felix Starker, in Kempton Park sent us the following article. His website has more details.

Myth: Chiropractic adjustments only help musculoskeletal pain or injuries.
Truth: Chiropractic is proven to help musculoskeletal and organ health while also positively influencing every aspect of human performance.
The benefits of Chiropractic go far beyond simply alleviating back and neck pain. Research, medical science, and 120 years of Chiropractic foundation have resulted in millions of elated patients across the globe every single day. While Chiropractic continues to develop as the second largest healthcare provider in the world, many medical doctors and mainstream medical instruction remain unaware of the research and science behind the short and long-term benefits that Chiropractic adjustments provide for people of all ages.

Security Dogs For Hire

Security Dogs are without a doubt the most efficient and cost-effective way to guard your property or premises. A well-trained security dog can replace at least 3 guards. Dogs can be trained to respond to a command and will obey the command in a situation when needed.

German Shepherds, Rottweilers, and/or Belgian Shepherds ( Malinois) are excellent breeds for Protection Canine Training as security dogs. These dogs are fearless, alert, courageous, obedient, and eager to learn. They are extremely brave and faithful and will not think twice about putting their lives on the line.

They are very loyal to their handlers, which makes them the perfect candidates for protection and security. The handlers are trained to treat the animals in a firm, confident and consistent way.

Typical services offered by canine protection companies are:Private Attack TrainingProvision of Training GearSecurity and Guard Dogs on contractVIP Protection ServicesSpecialized Dogs - i.e. tracking dogs, tracking dogs t…

AI Restrooms

This is not an article about artificial intelligence as defined in Wikipedia where a device perceives its environment and takes actions that maximize its chance of success at some goal. It's also not about machines being smarter than humans. At its very basic level, it's about smart devices that monitor human movements and responds to meet needs.

This morning we had to return to the Mall of Africa. They simply have the best toilets ever. Not only are they modern and clean, they have what I term an AI system in place. Once you've finished and walk away from the urinal a sensor on the wall automatically flushes the cistern for you.

Your next step is when you want to wash your hands. The washbasins also have sensors that notice your hands under the taps and make the water flow. When you move your hands out of the way the water stops. The soap is in the form of a foam ball as you press the dispenser. I perceive that the system is aimed at reducing water wastage from start to …
