Yet, Another Happy Client!

Gwen Gaydos | Union Square Spinal Care

Dr. Lenny is the BEST!!!!!!!!!! I have been to many chiropractors in my life, and Dr. Lenny is incredible.

You see RESULTS from your first appointment. He actually takes a photo -before and after- on your first visit. His technique is the gentlest and yet most effective I have ever experienced. It seems odd, as he manipulates muscles and incorporates muscle testing, etc, but nonetheless, it works.

Also, there are no rules like “you must complete 20 visits until we consider showing you the exercises to do to correct your condition” or any other money making schemes that I have encountered at least in my time… He is honest, and knows his stuff. He has a fantastic, caring bedside manner as well and will take as long as he needs with you.

I travel alot for work and last weekend I was in AWFUL pain in my neck. Dr. Lenny got me right in, and i was so grateful. I figured he would be able to at least lessen the pain. However, the next day, it was totally cured! I couldnt believe it! i could turn my head without pain, nod, and the dull aching pain was gone!!!! nothing short of miraculous. truly.

Thank you Dr. Lenny!!!!

Another Happy Client Story

bio-pic-paraco2“Lenny is the classic example of what a care giver should be, Human First Doctor Second. 

Amongst other complications my nine year old daughter was walking around with her head on her right shoulder. Lenny’s first analysis was this will take a lot of work and time to get back to normal. 
Realizing the severity of the situation Lenny despite having scheduled time off for his own medical situation called me and offered to treat my child who was in severe pain. 
Needless to say Lenny’s first analysis was completely wrong, his deep concern and his care giving ability resulted in a solution with five visits.
Now we have a happy bouncing playful child again,thanks to a deeply committed care giver.”

Self Assessment, an important starting place

“Know Thyself” is credited to Socrates. In ‘The Art of War,’ Sun Tzu wrote: “If you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles.” And, John Lennon; “How can I move forward when I don’t know which way I’m facing?”

Living in the information age, what tools do we have to assess ourselves? Tests should be simple, inexpensive, and accurate. Equally important, they must point to solutions that allow us to determine choices.

-What small changes will greatly improve your condition (ex: quit smoking)?
-What large change will be worthwhile (ex: you may really need a surgery)?

I am currently reviewing several symptom survey forms that “cast a broad net” over a great variety of health issues.

Importance of Iodine and Iron to Child Health Recognized in EU

Positive European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) health claims linking iodine, iron and child development have been adopted and written into the EU legislature.

Commission Regulation (EU) No 958/2010 of 22 October 2010 refusing to authorize a health claim made on foods, other than those referring to the reduction of disease risk and to child development and health relevance.

The new claims state:

* Iodine contributes to the normal growth of children
* Iron contributes to normal cognitive development of children

Let’s start with the IODINE:

In my office, Union Square Spinal Care, I often test for adequate Iodine with a simple test you can do at home. Take regular Iodine tincture (2%), and paint a one inch square on the skin, where it won’t rub against skin or clothing. Observe how long this takes to absorb. I you can still see it after 24 hours, then your nutritional status is good. Of course the faster it is absorbed, the greater the body’s need.

My secretary recently did this test, and to our amazement the Iodine coloration was gone in fifteen minutes!

Another patient of mine started a daily supplement as a result of this test; she dropped nine pounds of fat in just a couple of months without any other dietary changes or exercise.

I have been very impressed with the Iodoral brand formula that is a combination of Iodine and Iodide. Do a quick “Google” search, and you will see the expert agreement here. What isn’t being brought to light is the simplicity of iodine deficiency testing, that I just described.
