A Surge in Alzheimer’s Disease Predicted
A recent report has shown that 6 million families in the United States will be dealing with a family member with Alzheimer’s disease. Currently 150,000 Arizonians have Alzheimer’s Disease. That number is expected to increase to 200,000 by the end of 2025.
There’s Bad News and Good News

Sensory Deprivation and Activation
Our bodies have three sensory systems. They are the eyes, the vestibular system in the inner ear, and the cerebellum, the back of your brain. Our brain is a sensory and motor dependent system.
Solitary confinement for 30 days has been reported to cause hypertension, headaches and migraines, profuse sweating, dizziness, and heart palpitations. Many inmates also experience extreme weight loss due to digestion complications and abdominal pain. Many of these symptoms are due to the intense anxiety and sensory deprivation. So, if things get worse with sensory deprivation, imagine the opportunity with sensory activation?
Take Care of What You Want to Keep
A dentist once told me, “Mark, you don’t have to brush or floss your teeth, only the ones you want to keep.” Are you willing to do an exercise that takes less than 10 minutes a day to decrease your statistical chance of getting this dreaded disease?
Ignoring spine and brain injuries over time does not heal them. In my 35 years of chiropractic practice and 27 years of doing functional neuro rehabilitation, I know this to be so true.
