Physical Therapy – Age Gracefully – with Erin Blackford :067

I used to think that Physical Therapy is something that people do after an accident or injury.

Although I am very much a preventative maintenance person, I didn’t consider it as a part of my wellness care until I learned about Motion Care. Manual adjustments from Erin have helped me to feel more in alignment for what’s proper for my own body – allowing muscles to relax and for my body to move more freely in my delay activities as well as in dance, martial arts and yoga.

 

In this casual conversation we talk about a number of wellness-care topics in relation to physical therapy and what you can do to feel better – to prevent the proverbial wheels from falling off!

  • What it’s like to come from a family of physical therapists
  • What’s the difference between manual physical therapy and chiropractic?
  • Why it’s important to treat the body BEFORE experiencing pain
  • What are the signs of degradation to look for to seek treatment before seemingly falling apart
  • Why working on the 3-planes of motions is important (longitudinal, rotational, diagonal)
  • Sleeping through the night due to physical therapy
  • Why it’s so important to find the exercise that is right for you or the patient!
  • What Erin wishes everyone would do for their bodies
  • What increases chances for falls
  • The adjustment that relieved upper back tension that helped better than yoga!
  • Why “back extensions” are as important as “tummy time” for babies
  • The importance of preventative care for the lay person (non-athlete)
  • How to use our healthcare system more efficiently – saving hassle and money
  • The value of self-awareness and self-care
  • How physical therapy can help Osteo and Rheumatoid Arthritis
  • Suggestions for Back pain
  • “Keep moving – keep your body going.” – Erin Blackford – Physical Therapist

How to Beat Cancer Naturally with Jack Kungel :045

Jack Kungel Beat Cancer Naturally 2 Times and is Eager to Share How He Did It!

It’s easy to think that chemotherapy and radiation are the only ways to beat cancer. Well, Jack is here to tell you emphatically that there is another way. In his opinion, there is a better way to beat cancer and beat it for good!

 

“It was diet and cannabis. [that healed my body from cancer]”

– Jack Kungel, Cancer Survivor

Jack Beat Cancer (oh, and diabetes and other dis-eases) with Cannabis

Jack has beaten cancer twice and has been cancer-free for over 5 years!

In the early 90’s he had a devastating accident and was immediately put on a long list of medications – many for pain management.

Not only was he left with a debilitated body from the accident, he suffered life-altering side effects from the medications; particularly vomiting (for 20 years 15-20 times a day) which wore down his teeth, caused breakage of ribs and pain on top of pain. He realized that he was in chemical toxicity from all of the medications.

With his first diagnosis of bladder cancer which also affected the prostate, the doctor left him with the option of surgery. Jack took some time to think things over, time that was becoming increasingly more valuable.

 

“I took 28 days from the 3 or 4 months they said I had after being diagnosed with cancer, and began to educate myself.” – Jack Kungel, Cancer Survivor

Jack mentions that he had a serendipitous meeting in which a man introduced him to the healing powers of cannabis. He began taking in this medicinal plant in every way possible immediately: smoking, vaporizing and ingesting.

The therapeutic effects of cannabis allowed him to easily wean from his medications; from 22 medications a day to zero in a matter of a couple of months.

When he was cleared of cancer he dramatically reduced the cannabis protocol he was following. But, the cancer came back.

 

“Your body is the computer and the cannabis is the anti-virus. You take it and goes to where the body needs to heal… We are hardwired for this plant.” – Jack Kungel, Cancer Survivor

 

What it Took to Beat Cancer Again

This time Jack took a “no holds barred” approach. He not only aggressively began his cannabis regimen again, he drastically changed his diet to eliminate all meat, dairy and sugar. He now eats a mostly vegan diet consuming eggs only about once every 4-5 months and using bone broth regularly. He says he eats a lot of veggies and nuts and only whole fruits.

Jack explains from what he learned along his healing journey that cancer cells feed off of sugar and an amino acid called methionine. Methionine is predominantly in animals products, which is why Jack avoids these foods.

In the interview Jack explains the healing components of cannabis and dispels the belief that CBD (the non psychoactive component of the plant) is just one aspect of the healing component of the plant. He confirms that THC not only is the part of the plant that knowingly produces the “high” but is the most healing.

Well, it’s a fun and lively conversation… and there’s so much more!

 

“We want full plant medicine… You need the THC-delta-9 to heal… CBD just addressed the symptoms.” – Jack Kungel, Cancer Survivor

 

“I couldn’t walk before. Now I walk four or five miles a day.” – Jack Kungel, Cancer Survivor

 

Other topics we talked about:

  • Endocannabinoid System
  • CBD1 and CBD2 receptors
  • Decarb cannabis (baked, dried cannabis at 240 degrees) which converts THC 8 to TCH delta 9 which is curative
  • How cannabis extended the life of Jack’s dog with hip dysplasia
  • Why cannabis became illegal
  • Evolution of cannabis becoming legal in Canada
  • What we can do in the US to legalize cannabis
  • Friends with Osteoarthritis and Multiple Sclerosis sufferer can thrive due to cannabis.
  • Run From the Cure (video that Jack mentions)
  • How high estrogen cancers needs to be treated differently
  • Bone marrow (bone broth) boosts the T-cells
  • How a friend helped him figure out that his intense skin reactions was acidic reaction (burns)
  • The perspective of gaining LIFE!
  • How quantum hypnosis helped
  • How a friend with glioblastoma (an aggressive cancer that begins in the brain) has survived 2 years (when given only 2 weeks to live!)
  • How Jack deals with negativity
  • Why not to say “My (disease)”
  • The role of Methionine and Serrapeptase

 

There are so many nuggets!

“All I did was give my body the proper tools to heal. I removed all the toxins and stepped back and allowed the body to do its thing.” – Jack Kungel, Cancer Survivor
