Knowledge is power. ~ Sir Francis Bacon
Andrew Carnegie gained much of his knowledge from the library. Almost obsolete, the library is not the best place to get information anymore. I dare to say that I have learned as much from material on the internet as I have in all of the 3.5 years I spent in chiropractic school.
With that said, I thought I’d start to share some of the research, blog posts, or interesting stuff that I find. Stuff will be related to health, fitness, life, and things that are FUN…
Quick Fixes to Common Training Injuries @ T-Nation (By Eric Cressey, Nate Green, and Mike Robertson). As far as strength coaches around the country go, I have the biggest man crush on Eric Cressey out of Boston. While I would treat these issues a bit differently as a manual therapist, their strategies make sense.
Why Did the Russians Ban an Appliance Found in 90% of American Homes? @ Mercola.com. My mom used to yell at me to get away from the microwave as I’d ambitiously watch my food warm up before I could devour it. Now, I can’t remember the last time I used a microwave. It tastes much better to reheat foods in a cast iron skillet. Here’s research supporting my mom’s anxiety over food watching.
Being Attractive at Any Age @ Agemyths.com (By Madeleine Kolb). Confidence is attractiveness. I firmly believe that accepting aging gracefully, with confidence, is a key factor in having a healthy society. Having gone through high school ten years ago, it is my observation that MTV and the media are responsible for a large percentage of teenage depression in this country. Having two little sisters, seems like this culture around beauty in youth as queen is only getting worse. Madeleine helps fight the good fight.
