"My Goal Is To Have Perfect Health"

I think that is a great goal. When it's comes down to it, you really can't do anything without your health!

So what should I do?

First, make the decision to get healthy. Keep it on your mind and focus on that... Next, like many other things, you should write it down. And third, make a plan that you can start doing. Make changes to that plan when you need to.

An example may be to workout 5 days a week. Let's say that you can't get to the gym one particular day, have things at home you can work out with. Maybe have a plan in place to do an exercise you dislike if you don't follow your plan, etc.

Next, You see your Chiropractor regularly.

And third, you eat out less. This way you know exactly what you are getting...

"My Neck Still Hurts?"



I've tried everything but my neck is still hurting! I slept good, went to my chiropractor, you name it, I've done it?

Sometimes we just need more time, and sometimes we are doing something that aggravates it and don't know it!

I have found the tri-sectonal hot and cold pack to be real helpful. I like it because it can just sit on your shoulders. I use the heat in the morning when it's cooler and the ice pack later on when it's warmer.

I actually keep a cold one in the freezer and another in the cabinet I can heat up quicker.

We Are Going On Vacation, Should I Take The Pillow I Use At Home?



The quick answer to this question is: Yes! You don't want not enjoy yourself because you don't have your usual pillow.

For us, the whole family takes their own pillow. If you can't imagine sleeping without your usual neck pillow you may want to take it with you as well.

I know the hotel pillows will be comfortable but after a couple of nights bunching it under my neck, it gets old real fast.

Will Getting A New Pillow Help Me Sleep?



A new pillow may help you sleep. Some people have trouble getting to sleep, some getting back to sleep...

If you definitely need a new pillow, this may make a big difference. Most Neck pillows will lose some support as time goes on. So, I have found that getting a new pillow can help sleeping.

I have also seen many make lifestyle changes that have helped Sleep. Maybe that was making the room more sleep conducive, cutting out the technology right before bed, and much more...

Either way a new pillow may even help more than sleep!

Poor Neck Posture While Sitting



Many of us may slouch, which can get the low back, but I've seen many bad necks more often.

Most of us use the phone a lot these days. Think about it - looking at the internet on a little phone!

Or there's poor posture when on the computer, reading, or driving. I would have never really thought about it, but I even saw very poor posture while someone was eating.

So, check your posture no matter what you are doing...

Is Swimming Really Such A Great Workout?



So, there are a few things you need to add swimming to your work out. First, you need to have a pool or have one that's available. Your gym may have one! Also have to keep an eye on the weather, if the pool is outside; you have to make sure that the pool is clean, the water is healthy and a good temperature, etc. etc.

I thought everything was good, meaning the conditions I mentioned earlier were all good with the exception that was a little chilly out. So I did my swimming which was great however I think I caught a little cold maybe because the cold temperature getting out of the pool and drying off.

Lastly, I know that chlorine probably isn't the greatest but we don't always have a salt water pool to use.

Is Bike Riding For Your Health?



That all depends! I know some real hardcore bikers, cyclists anyway. I do have a friend who does off road stuff on trails and everything, but that's a little different. You do take some spills every so often and that can't be fun, in fact I know one of those guys just took a fall and I think he broke something.

Anyway, when I talk biking or cycling here I'm referring to guys that ride their bikes on the road or on the side of the road. This could be very dangerous, number one because when a car meets a biker in a crash, the car wins. Number two, you could take a spill just like anybody else or any other biker, and get really injured.

So, when somebody said they bike for their health, I'm not so sure. Riding the stationary bike down in the basement is a nice story. Same thing goes for the recumbent bike in the gym, you can get a great workout without the risks.

"What Are Some Things I Can Do To Sleep Better?"

Next, we need to make our rooms more Sleep conducive. What do I mean - get it as comfortable as possible, as dark as you can, as well as quiet.

Third, go to bed and wake up at a good time. This means, not to late at night, and be fairly consistent night to night.

Last, try not to eat or drink right before bed. You may think you slept but is it your best sleep?

Why Doesn't My Pillow Last Forever?



Here's the thing - if your pillow was built to last forever - it would be very firm. If they pack more fiber or foam into a pillow you'll feel the firmness.

It often comes down to what you like. Your body can get used to a lot of different things. Some people like a pillow that's really firm or hard. Here's what happens, the pillow starts out fairly firm, it starts wear down it gets softer and softer. In other words, the fibers start to break down. This mainly happens over time with usage.

You actually don't want a pillow that lasts forever because then it would be too hard. You want a pillow that you can get used to and have a good nights sleep with.

"Why Am I Sore After I Slept On My New Pillow?"

The reason is because your body needs to get used to it. Many people have lost some of their neck curve. So when you first sleep or lay on something that puts more curve in the neck it can make you sore.

As a matter of fact, the loss of ones neck curve is the most common spinal misalignment there is. Sometimes it can be seen in ones posture too. If you see forward head posture there's a good chance some of that cervical lordosis is lost.

So, "what should be done to avoid the soreness"?

What one must do, is to gradually work that curve in there. Gradually do some neck traction at a short period of time and for a low intensity. Do a few reps of neck exercises. The same with anything else, do it little-by-little.

Your Health Can Be Like Internet Security?

What I mean by this is that if you don't take care of it, you can be in big trouble. Just like if you neglect your health, you can have many problems.

Recently my computer had some corrupt files. The problem with this is that things can get worse and worse until eventually your computer may just shut down and at this time you could be in a real pickle.

So the take home is to take care of your health, or your body, or it may take care of you.

What Causes Neck Pain?



Ultimately, there can be many causes of her neck pain. What most often it comes down to is pressure on the nerves. That pressure means pain or another unwanted symptom.

Now that we know that the question is how did we get that nerve pressure. Was it a sports injury, was it a slip or fall, was it sleeping on the wrong pillow?

Either way we, most likely, want to get rid of it. The best recommendation is to sleep on the right pillow. In the vast majority of cases that's the cervical traction neck pillow.

How Can I Prevent Getting Sick?



I think there's a few aspects to not getting sick. One needs to 1st focus on the opposite: staying healthy.

What does staying healthy entail: First we must eat right. Next, we need to get proper rest. Third, we need to manage our stress properly. Fourth, we need to do some form of exercise and Five, we need to get our spines adjusted. Things like the traction pillow accomplishes two of these things good because not only does it help you sleep, it also helps align your cervical or neck spine also.

On top of this I have found that staying warm, avoiding sick people, and washing hands makes a difference.

Keys To Aligning The Spine



The easiest thing I found for one to align the spine is good neck pillow. This helps to align the neck all while you sleep good.

Next is your posture. They say posture is the window to your spine. The reason for that is because if your posture looks one way, the spine inside you looks the same.

Lastly, is to see the professionals. This is what your doctor of chiropractic does. So when in doubt, make an appointment.

"I Am Used To Using A Feather Pillow"

Feather pillows or Down pillows are very soft. The only issue with that is they often lose their support or never really had any to begin with. You may often find yourself fluffing it up, trying to get more support under the neck. Some even end up using two pillows... Who wants to wake up in the middle of the night because yo're having neck pain? What you really want is something that will give you the neck support but is comfortable like a feather pillow.

"I Don't Have A Neck Traction Device Yet, What Can I Do In The Meantime?"

To start, you can lay on your Traction Pillow anytime. Next, you can lay with your your head hanging off the bed. I usually spin around so my head hangs off where my feet usually are. Last, when I'm sitting in a chair with a high enough back, I let my head fall back in extension. I like it when the back of the chair is at the spot where I want the most traction.

Of note, is watch the amount you do, you can be sore if you do too much. Also, make sure the spot that hits your neck isn't too hard.

I Work On The Computer All Day, How Can I Prevent Neck Pain?...

The first thing to do is to set up your work station as ergonomically friendly as you can. Try to maintain good posture, your eyes should look straight and slightly down on the screen, seated up straight on the chair with both feet on the ground.

Next, move around! Take regular breaks, and do periodic stretching. Go on a walk even for your break.

Last, stay hydrated, and get sunshine, and get some fresh air. So yes, you learned to take a break and move around. Even better if you can get out and get some sunshine, and breath in some clean air, drink some good water.

"I Sleep With Two Pillows!"



I've talked to some people who do, and I don't recommend it. One reason it often comes up is that they'll get the Traction Pillow and say it's too high. Then you find out they are putting it on top of another pillow.

It's not that they need the small Traction Pillow, you should just be using one pillow.

Two pillows pushes your head so forward, not to mention when you're on your side, it cranks the head to one side or another. The goal is to keep your spine in alignment - and pushing it in any direction doesn't do that...
