Living Active and Pain Free with Sports Medicine

The human body is an amazing organic machine. Every system is interconnected. In some cases modern medicine has taken the pathway of covering up problems rather than fixing them. You wouldn’t pay a mechanic that fixed a dent on your car with duct tape. So why would you pay a doctor to fix your pain by covering it up with a painkiller? No matter how numb the drugs make you, the cause of your pain is still there, festering and causing more damage. 

Fort Lauderdale sports medicine is about much more than tracking and covering up symptoms. A trained professional in the field of osteopathy knows that all of your body’s systems work together. They will find the root cause of the problem so that their patient can heal. If you’ve been suffering from chronic pain for a long period of time and nothing seems to help you should take a different approach. 

Recover from Injury like an Athlete 

Athletes often frequent the offices of professionals who offer a holistic approach to healing. Athletes are led to these places because they have been referred by other athletes for whom this approach to health has worked wonders. You don’t have to be an athlete in order to heal completely. This approach can work for anyone who decides to give it a chance. Unfortunately, holistic healing is usually a last-ditch effort from normal people. They’ve tried everything under the sun to recover from pain or injury and nothing seems to work. More people every day are finding relief with an osteopathic doctor. 

Improve Performance and Relieve Pain 

Fort Lauderdale sports medicine  practices can greatly improve the performance of any person. This is why athletes love to receive treatment. Athletes know their body better than regular people. When something changes and works better, they notice an immediate difference. In the world of sports, attitude and heart can take you far. With a fully functioning body, you might be able to go even further. If you’re a normal person looking for better performance and pain relief for your body, just follow the athletes to your solution.

Hefty Delicious Big Brothers Burger

I’m a burger lover and when I’m down and at my low moments it’s one of the foods that will surely comfort me. Though one burger is enough to fill in my day’s calorie consumption I don’t mind getting more calories when I’m down and stressed. Anyway it’s not every day that I get those irresistible cravings because most of the times I’m happy. Now when I get to see pictures of my favorite burgers that’s the time when I love to eat burgers happy or not. 

Well I love these full sandwiches with beef patties in many forms, sizes, flavors and kinds. I also want it simple or special, cheap or expensive because they all have different taste for me. When my sister brought home a huge Big Brother’s burger to me I realized it’s not only big in size but big in flavors also and I really wait for deals so I can get cheaper than its actual price. As I love buying vouchers from different restaurants, bakeries and some other shops because it gives me a way to buy my favorite foods in volume. 

I’ve had numerous vouchers on pizzas, cakes, pastries, rice cakes, doughnuts, restaurants and some others but I’m always late in getting vouchers for Big Brothers burger. Now I just saw its promo in MetroDeal and instead of buying for P220 it’s offered for P135 only. That’s 39% savings off the regular price. You’ll get juicy, hefty and delicious 100% pure beef burger for lesser price. Here I know you’ll drool with this.

Choosing Quality Sounds for Special Events

I’ve watched the opening celebration of the new organization in our community and I’m surprised at their sound system which seems so modern and sounds so good. If there is something that I don’t want to hear when there’s a program it’s the sound that seem to give broken sound and not clear enough to understand what the people on the stage are saying let alone the performers that sings on the stage. The quality of the sound system defines the success of programs and ceremonies as it can make or break the turnout of events in the occasion. 

When you really want the best for your program or any activity that requires good quality sound system you should get brands that will deliver the crisp, clear and low noise sound. A friend of mine who is in charge of the instruments for their company’s events choose the brand that he knows so well like Yamaha and other similar brands. He wanted no failure in performing music and he knows he can only do it when he has the best instruments on hand. 

He reminded his staff to always ensure safe keeping and good maintenance of their instruments by putting instruments in their particular cases like the yamaha emx5014c case at musician's friend or other specific cases for their variety of instruments. When you take good care of your musical instruments and accessories you’ll be ensured that they will serve you for several years.

Effects on Economy and Health

These past few weeks has given many people something to be busy about their health and total wellness as the season has begun changing from hot to cold drastically. The country has experienced the impact of storms not only on economy and source of food but on personal health as well. We still have to experience two incoming this month and we pray and brace ourselves for what it will bring. I’m an optimistic person always and I know we’ll be able to get through it with the help of God. 

Well for those who were badly affected by the recent storm I know that many private and public agencies have been helping them out to give assistance. They raise funds to give the basic needs while they’re relocated to safer place. Sometimes they need to ask some local drugstore to donate medicines to those who developed sickness and got ill by the bad season. Help from such suppliers here and abroad like the canadian drugstore or some manufacturers would be a great help. Anyway I learned that they have taken special measures to address the concerns of the victims and gave food, shelter and medical help.

Redge and Ruth's Food Birthday Feast

We had such fun and real bonding for my dear sister and my daughter's successive birthdays tomorrow and on the 19th.  When I gave birth to Ruth my sister is hoping that I'll be able to deliver my eldest on her birthday also but 5 hours before the clocks tick 12midnight to 19th  I already gave birth to my first baby.  Redge is my one and only sister and she's also like a second mother to my kids that we always celebrate their birthdays together.

We chose to celebrate today for a more relaxed lunch date and plenty of time to enjoy their birthdays.  We ordered monster meal deal good for 12 people but actually we're only 7 so you can just imagine how much we feasted on their group meal.  The meal consists of 2 large thin crust manager's choice and pepperoni which we exchanged for hawaiian, 2 large platters of classic spaghetti and carbonara supreme, 12 pc. party pack chicken 'n mojos and 3 pitchers of drinks - coke, root beer and iced tea.  

Kids were so happy and enjoyed their meal especially my little boy who asked me if he can also celebrate his birthday with the same monster meal deal.  Actually he just love the chicken 'n mojos and pizza, since the meal is really more than we can manage he's happy to take home some of it. After we eat and can't walk anymore lol!  we roam around the mall and shopped for blouses for my girls.  Since the weather is starting to show signs that there's a storm coming up in the next few days we went home early.

The Benefits of Cellulose Insulation for Your Home

To help keep your home at a comfortable temperature, you have heaters and air conditioning systems. The use of these systems contributes to a large portion of your home’s energy use, raising your energy bills. There are a variety of ways that you can help cut down on this particular energy use, such as by turning the system down when you are away and at night. Another excellent way to reduce energy costs is to ensure your home meets the recommended insulation values. Insulation values can vary by material type. Common types of insulation include fiberglass, spray foam, cotton, and cellulose. What are the benefits of choosing cellulose insulation in San Jose? 

Importance of R-Values

The effectiveness of insulation is measured by R-values, which are the insulation’s ability to resist heat flow. The higher the R-value, the better the insulation prevents warm air from moving in or out of your home. The appropriate R-value for your home depends upon your location, the space you are insulating, and the age of your home. For example, in the San Jose, CA, area, an R-value of R-30 to R-60 is recommended for the attic, R-25 for flooring, and R-13 to R-15 for wall spaces. If you have an older home, you would most likely need an R-value closer to R-60, whereas a newer home will usually be fine with an R-value closer to R-30. Cellulose insulation tends to have a higher R-value for increased heat-flow resistance. 

Benefits of Cellulose

Cellulose is composed of paper materials that are generally recycled. In fact, most cellulose insulations contain as much as 75% of recycled material on average. The material is treated with a chemical fire retardant that is safe for humans but helps to repel rodents, insects, and mold. While fiberglass has shown tendencies to irritate skin, throats, lungs, and eyes with exposure, cellulose has not shown any negative health effects for people. The cellulose material is blown into the space, helping to provide more coverage in odd shapes and around obstacles such as wiring and ducts for an increased R-value. This also allows cellulose to be easily applied to existing walls with minimal damage.

Cellulose insulation keeps its R-value despite temperature changes, but will be affected by moisture. Because it tends to retain moisture, it may be best to install other insulation materials in areas prone to moisture, such as basements and crawlspaces. While it is possible to rent equipment to apply cellulose yourself, professional installation is still recommended. Proper installation of cellulose insulation in San Jose can help to prevent settling. 

Planning a Good Combination of Instruments

We’re planning a fellowship during the coming holidays just before December to have a practice of what we’ll do in our outdoor fellowship in Baguio. It’s actually a fellowship cum vacation for the whole church and just like two years ago when we had our very first group vacation in the summer capital of the country we aim to spend more time in fellowship. On our practice we’re going to use musical instruments as it will be held only in the nearby town and we’re discussing if we should add one guitar like fretless bass guitar I saw online. 

Previously we have two electric guitars but suddenly they stopped using the other and just concentrated on the other one. Anyway I believe that it’s either that we replace the existing one or we just add a piano or keyboard for solemn praising. Sometimes I find the drum set too loud that the voices were drowned and can’t be heard. We’re still thinking if we should have all the musical instruments played all at once or choose better combination of instruments. We’ve experienced having all of those instruments played on our fellowship regularly several years ago and I must say it depends on the musician on how they will blend all of it to give an inspiring music.

Proper Maintenance and Storage of Instruments

Keeping our home neat and organized needs some planning and creative ideas on how to come up with an orderly storage system. Well it’s just the same with your musical instruments and accessories because proper maintenance and keep up will ensure longer usage of your precious instruments used in music. Anyway we don’t need a real big storage cabinet for all of your instruments and small accessories because each of them can be stored separately and securely by always putting those in their respective cases each time you finished using it. 

This reminds me that I saw a nice skb molded drum case which we need in our church. We don’t want intruders or small kids playing with some of our music things that we really need to keep them in their case when not in use or after the service. It’s really tasking to take note of all things we need to do, implement and keep in mind when it comes to regular cleaning and maintenance of our church’ musical instruments but in the end it will pay off because it would mean several years of good music coming from the instruments.

Securing Your Future

With a lot of things to do and think about in the house I forgot what my friend said to me about being smart in whatever field you choose to join. She herself wanted to secure her money and got herself a piece of investment. Well if you’re one who loves securing your future but don’t want to spend your time in new business it’s time to look for some alternative ways of having investment. 

You can look at various companies who specialize in finance and money matters and you’ll see that some really recommends having investment in various forms. Of course it should be tangible like the ones I saw at and one that will give you higher returns after several years. Well there are many to choose from and it’s better if you study about them before taking it seriously. It’s better to be prepared and well educated.

Suggestions for Starting Road Racing Events

CGI Racing is the type of company that promotes local races, whether they are half marathons, marathons, or triathlons of all types. It is easy to see the upcoming events and sign up for the one or ones you plan on participating in. The Ironman Triathlon starts out with participants swimming 2.4 miles, then biking 112 miles and finishing with a full marathon of 26.2 miles. You have to be in the elite athlete class to tackle this monumental race. So, starting out with untimed races that go shorter distances is a great place to start.

Getting Started and the Equipment

Seasoned triathletes suggest that your first triathlons should be close to home. If you are trying triathlons out because you don’t know if you will like them enough to continue with more training and more races, find a wetsuit for the swimming portion of the triathlon that you can rent,or only sign up for events that let you do the swimming portion of the event in a pool. At the least, you will need a swimming suit and goggles. To start out with, the bike you have right now is a great place to start. You could even borrow one from someone to try the whole experience out first, before you invest the money in a bike specifically for triathlons. The only equipment you will need for the running portion of the event is running shoes. If you don’t already have a pair, a shoe salesman will be able to get you hooked up with the right shoes for what you need.  


There are triathlon training plans all over the Internet, in books, and out of the heads of the people you know who are currently participating in triathlons and who have had years of experience. The excitement of the race may cause you to hurry when you shouldn’t. Resting during the race is allowed. The transitions between events is part of your time and they need to be smooth and done as quicklyas possible. Once you have completed a couple of events, you will be hooked and your speeds will get increasingly faster. Keep checking with someone like CGI Racing for information on all upcoming events.

Harmonizing Furniture with Musical Accessories

We only have simple speakers in our house made by DH on one of his projects in his electronic course. It’s just perfect for us except that it doesn’t harmonize with the furniture unlike the leslie speaker I found online which complements the color of our home furniture. Although I appreciate modern homes and furniture a part of me always look back to old traditional furniture made of wood and in deep brown colors. 

Well the colors and looks of speakers doesn’t affect music but it’s nice to have singing and instruments playing with a speaker that doesn’t just sounds good but looks good as well. My family loves music and has inclination to music from old generations until now that we love collecting musical instruments and accessories that complements our music room also. I would love to design a real music room when our plan to renovate the house begins next year. Dreams are made to achieve.
