Issue 173  February 29, 2016


This month we will be discussing the serious issues of overweight and obesity and what to do about it. The difference between being overweight and being obese are as follows:  

Overweight is a condition in which a person’s weight is 10%-20% higher than “normal,” as defined by a standard height/weight chart, or when body mass index (BMI) of 25 to 30.

Obesity is usually defined as a condition in which a person’s weight is 20% or more above normal weight or as a BMI of 30 or more. “Morbid obesity” means a person is either 50%-100% over normal weight, more than 100 pounds over normal weight, or sufficiently overweight to severely interfere with health or normal functioning.

Obesity is a growing concern in the United States.  Approximately 60 million Americans, nearly one-third of all adults and about one in five children, are obese.  Overweight rates have doubled among children and tripled among adolescents.  Maintaining our ideal weight is not only a "look good"  issue, it is a serious health matter.  According to a Surgeon General report, obesity is responsible for 300,000 deaths every year in the United States.

According to Dr. Mercola, there 20 diseases or conditions that can be attributed to obesity.
  • Diabetes (obesity is one of the main causes)
  • Cancer
  • Congestive heart failure
  • Enlarged heart
  • Pulmonary embolism (blockage of an artery which can be fatal)
  • Polycystic ovarian syndrome
  • Gastro-esophageal reflux disease -common in overweight people.
  • Fatty liver disease
  • Hernia
  • Erectile dysfunction
  • Urinary incontinence
  • Chronic renal failure
  • Lymph edema .
  • Cellulitis - a spreading infection
  • Stroke
  • Pickwickian syndrome
  • Depression
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Gout
  • Gallbladder disease

NeuroCranial Restructuring (NCR)

"Medicine and natural healing treat the body as if it were HEADLESS. Unfortunately,
your skull shape controls your mental abilities, personality, and many of your diseases."
–Dr. Ben Eversage

Wednesday, April 6- Saturday, April 9
NCR with ABC consists of 4 procedures done 4 days in a row.
Cost: Adults - $600; Children - $350
  • NeuroCranial Restructuring (NCR) permanently corrects damage to the brain caused by life's traumatic events be it birth trauma, infections, illnesses, accidents, falls, work injuries, medical procedures, surgeries, severe emotional trauma and biochemical damage caused by drugs.  NCR  is the newest and most powerful therapy in physical medicine. NCR is a cumulative manipulation process involving controlled release of the body's connective tissue and meningeal tensions-resulting from traumas-to unwind the body and its bony structures and return it to its original and optimal design. NCR utilizes careful analysis of the body's patterns of balance to determine the precise areas of the skull needing to be unlocked during each day's treatment. More information may be found online at:
  • Advanced Biostructural Correction (ABC) is real and immediate posture correction. One of the first things to note is that the body will stay upright by itself without significant muscular effort. ABC unwinds twisted and locked frames, giving pain relief and/or elimination of pain. As a result, a person will breathe deeper and fuller. This is the best type of care when no other profession has been able to help. Much information and videos are available on the website:
