Dr. Geezer’s Clinic

old medical bottlesAn old geezer became very bored in retirement and decided to open a medical clinic. He put a sign up outside that said: “Dr. Geezer’s Clinic. Get your treatment for $500, if not cured, get back $1,000.”

Doctor “Young,” who was positive that this old geezer didn’t know beans about medicine, thought this would be a great opportunity to get $1,000. So he went to Dr. Geezer’s clinic.

Dr. Young: “Dr. Geezer, I have lost all taste in my mouth. Can you please help me?

Dr. Geezer: “Nurse, please bring medicine from box 22 and put 3 drops in Dr. Young’s mouth.”

Dr. Young: “Aaagh!! This is gasoline!”

Dr. Geezer: “Congratulations! You’ve got your taste back. That will be $500.”

Dr. Young gets annoyed and goes back after a couple of days figuring to recover his money.

Dr. Young: “I have lost my memory, I cannot remember anything.”

Dr. Geezer: “Nurse, please bring medicine from box 22 and put 3 drops in the patient’s mouth.”

Dr. Young: “Oh, no you don’t, that is gasoline!”

Dr. Geezer: “Congratulations! You’ve got your memory back. That will be $500.”

Dr. Young (after having lost $1000) leaves angrily and comes back after several more days.

Dr. Young: “My eyesight has become weak – I can hardly see anything!!!!

Dr. Geezer: “Well, I don’t have any medicine for that so, here’s your $1000 back.” (giving him a $10 bill)

Dr. Young: “But this is only $10!”

Dr. Geezer: “Congratulations! You got your vision back! That will be $500.”

Moral of story: Just because you’re “Young” doesn’t mean that you can outsmart an “old Geezer.”

Remember: Don’t make old people mad. We don’t like being old in the first place, so it doesn’t take much to piss us off.

12 New Behaviours: #1 EXERCISE

Couple walking in snowGo for a walk and live longer!

Dr. Sanjay Sharma, professor at St George’s University Hospitals in London, discussing his research findings at the European Society of Cardiology (ESC) Congress, stated that regular exercise, just 25 minutes of daily brisk walking, could add 7 years to your life. A group of 69 healthy non-smokers, aged between 30 and 60, who were not regular exercisers were tested as part of a university study.

 Fight Aging with Exercise

Blood tests taken during six months of regular aerobic exercise, high-intensity interval training and strength training showed that an anti-aging process had been triggered and helped repair old DNA. “Exercise buys you three to seven additional years of life. It is an antidepressant, it improves cognitive function and there is now evidence that it may retard the onset of dementia,” said Sanjay Sharma.

They said that by measuring the increase of telomerase activity and decrease of senescence marker p16 (both markers of cellular aging in the blood) over a six-month period, doctors were able to show that regular exercise had triggered the anti-aging process. (1)

Dr. Ray teaches Tai Chi and I teach Yoga. I also do strength training under barbells and am due to compete again in Spring.

Drs Ray and Charmaine return from 34th Homecoming

We have just returned from a wonderful time at our Alma Mater Sherman College of Chiropractic. The weather was just gorgeous and the atmosphere on campus ..electric. Apart from some 20 hours of continuing education credit classes that we attended, we had a chance to interact with some of our favorite friends and colleagues.
The overarching theme of the weekend was ensuring that we made the most of opportunity to provide our patients with the best information possible about posture, the rationale behind what we do and to really educate patients to the fact that Chiropractic is so much more than for headaches and back pain.
An interesting study in Illinois showed that when Doctors of Chiropractic were used as primary portals of entry into the health care system…….hospital stays dropped dramatically as did surgeries and most importantly of all prescriptions dropped by 85%. Needless to say vested interests were not happy AND the major bummer that came out of that is that is that Illinois will no longer cover chiropractic care.. When you do good work, some people are threatened and unhappy.

Lyceum 2009

Just got back from our 2009…29th Chiropractic College Homecoming in South Carolina.

The weather was wet and icky…needless to say I saw ( and heard!!) how great Michigan’s weather was and I am now one week behind in the gardening!!!!!

We has a great evening with daughter and friends of hers had a baby who had fallen off the bed a few days earlier. He had been checked and adjusted immediately afterwards.  When they came to see us, he was fussy and no really wanting to be held and refusing to drink his bottle.  Ray adjusted him and it was like a light switch being flipped!!! he became cuddly and was sucking on his bottle like a starving man…..He had a headache and couldn’t communicate it!!!!

Learnt a lot of stuff about the hidden truth behind ADD….Did you know there is no official diagnostic test?  Did you know schools benefit to the tune of $400.00 per diagnosed child per year?   Do you know what the side effects of the drugs are like????

There are several very interesting facts to consider:   Diagnosis of ADD has risen in direct proportion to the drop in recess and play time.

Diagnosis of ADD had increased as teachers are  forced to teach to tests and not to the children and their individual learning quirks.

School violence and children on drugs are so intertwined…its mind-blowing.

Get your kids checked lots and often and help them to express the best that they can be!!
