There is a lot of alternative medicine that works (in non-emergency situations).
all doctors say preventive medicine is very important but I'm not sure how many really understand how. improving the quality of health when not sick has a lot to do with trying to improve a skill like tennis. proactive thinking instead of being reactive. can't charge as much money doing this however.
Kite - you obviously take a very holistic view to things, are you also a creationist (genuine question)?
I should say at the outset that I have no problems with alternative medicine. It is wholly your choice to use these methods as it's your body. However, I do have issue with people recommending potentially injury-inducing techniques that only they have heard of. I understand that this is an internet forum and it's take it with a grain of salt or leave it, but there are no alternative medicine techniques which are directly harmful in an effort to improve health. That goes back to the days of blood letting and pain therapy. If you want to believe in alternative methods, then please do feel free to post them as many do in fact help lots of people. However, tearing a muscle, playing a close tennis match and then being fully healed in 4 days due to a potentially hazardous technique is not in that category.
Don't forget, 50 years ago, when you had pins inserted into a broken leg, it was thought best to REST the leg and the body, never work up a sweat or increase your heartbeat, to cure the break.
Less than 20 years later, it was believed moderate exercise was the call, even with the bones NOT set, right after pin insertion.
Now, it's pretty much normal to get the heartbeat up, work up a light sweat, and use your body to heal any bones that are held together with pins, plates, screws, or wire.
The times, they are a changing.
IN order to play the open player, the next day, with a broken bone in my frame hand, I took a vibrator to it, with a heat pad, after icing it, and then taped the broken finger to the unbroken ones, and made a temp cast, I could remove before and after the match. Hurt like hell, but healed fast in three weeks even after the match, but I kept vibrating it, and removing the cast nightly after work. During estimates, so people did not see I had a cast on, I wore a jacket over the broken hand to hide the cast.
Having track experience, and seen and felt many pulls, I know what a pull is. The open player I played was black also, very dark color. It's not relevant, except for visuality. If you've ever been mugged by a group, of punks, using weapons like sticks and such, you know what that feels like. Hard to see out of blackened eyes. The true point is, I am not normal. To be able to win any games at all would be abnormal. I took it to him by serving and volleying to his bh weak side only.
It's not a race issue. We all love the game otherwise why post? If it does not help you, don't do it, but to call it dangerous, is silly. What do you think happens to your blood pressure when you play? When you run? When you grunt or serve? It goes through the roof. This is raising blood pressure without raising heart beat. Shoving with energy and not just pressure. For you to call it dangerous is only due to ignorance. To review string you have not tried is also ignorant.
I don't believe that the universe was created by accident, in a trillion to trillion chance that life could develop. Why are there so many people who don't see that? I don't know. In our galaxy alone there are probably 10,000 water planets like ours. With life. Water is the most valuable element. In the universe. We are sitting on a gold mine and don't know it. Just because we can't measure divinity or even our own physical energy doesn't mean it doesn't exist.
No one told me to take a vibrator to my broken bone. Speeding up the molecular vibratory rate of my own broken bone made sense to me. Pain means nothing if healing speeds up. Increase the molecular vibratory rate of anything and it speeds up most processes.
Heart rate increases during exercise.
I've never been jumped by six white teens. Blacks, yes, many times having grown up in a black school. Berkeley is not all black, but Richmond was mostly. Happened to me on a weekly basis, and they did it for fun because I was white, and that them made them racist, not me. The most racist people I've ever met were black, not white. Or do you believe that it's impossible for a black to be racist? Whites deserve any violence?
There could be an infinite number of universes out there, not one. We may be living on the only one on which life evolved by chance.
The fallacy is in believing that the universe exists to support life. It may or may not be true. Just like a river exists whether or not you go boating on it, and if you go boating on it, it doesn't mean the river was created with you in mind. The idea that life and humans are central to the universe is called the anthropic hypothesis, and has its supporters.
Its about damn time!!!!
The universe exists to support me.
There are trillions of sentient races, and we are the only humans. It takes billions of years to develop space travel, and how many after that for gravity warp drive? Only a few hundred I'd guess. Then we get to go to stars nearby in a few days. Won't help us. Won't be able to survive the biosphere. Won't be able to communicate with the residents who will fire on us. We are pretty much stuck here for quite awhile regardless of tech. How many lower life forms does it take to create/support sentient ones? There must be some kind of parabolic curve. What does it matter to us? Only if we get evicted by some hybrid breed alien clan. Probably rules in place against that. It's our own energy we need to become masters of. We can't film or measure it, or love, or anything energetic or emotional that lives in the wisp. But many people have learned to master it.
The thread was only created for those who may gain from it, not for those who attack it, yet, this is the way of the free forum: attack anything you don't like or agree with. Why not try it objectively instead of the usual? If you do, you will learn to heal twice as fast as normal people do. I pulled my calf three times before learning this. Each took months/years. After this, a week or two. If you don't the only one who will care is you.
Murray has a great game and an extreme split step. Very fast. I just wish he would improve his emotional game. Perfectionism is one thing, and self destruction is another.
I do not think that these members are attacking your idea, but they are offering their advice so others are not harmed. This is just like if you suggested someone who is sick take homeopathic medicine. This will not help the person, and I know that I would want others to point out this fact before I decided to not take real medicine that actual might work.
Maybe you are/were repeatedly jumped because you continuously disrupt discussions / harmony / wa by pushing your quick heal schemes on them or irritate with narrow views or displays of intolerance when it comes to successful people who are "jerks" like 'andy murray' for not subscribing to your lull jam body clock engine methodology.
I went to high school also..
Was jumped by 3-4 guys a couple of times. They were white. I'm Asian.
As a SanFrancisco Night Taxi Driver for 7 years, I can honestly say I've had hijinx at least 20 times. 2 were white. NONE were Hispanic or Asian.
It was a weekly occurrence for me, only because I was white. Never jumped by asian, hispanic or whites. My school, won the state of Cal track championship, with four guys on the team who could all run 9.6 in the 100yd. dash. We had 1300 students, going against teams that had 30,000 and up to pick from. None of them were white. I was not credited for holding the schools distance records. My times didn't make state level. There were guys going under 4 min. miles. No one cares about race until you suffer for it. Talk to any minority in any school and they will tell you the same story of violence and misery.
If you can be harmed by intentionally raising your blood pressure, you should not be playing tennis or reading this forum. Nothing like reading something some jerk wrote to raise it. Murray is an all time jerk, yeah, but I still like his skill. Fake injuries, screaming at coaches and himself each time he loses a big point, etc.
That's a nine to one. For me it was a hundred to one.
20 to 2 is equal to 10 to 1, not 9.
The current men's world record for the men's 100 yard dash is 9.58 seconds, set by Jamaica's Usain Bolt, but you had 4 high school kids that ran 9.6??!!
When will we be seeing your upcoming infomercials?
actually, usain bolt holds the world record for the mens 100M in 9.58 secs not the 100 yard.
100 yards = 91.44 meters and so it's entirely plausible that fast high school kids can run 100 yards in 9.6 secs.
I sit corrected.
heart rate and blood pressure increases during exercise.
KB clearly states to apply heat AFTER the swelling has gone down. no where did he say to apply heat while it is swollen. i used to do a lot of running and quite a few docs (chiros, podiatrists, and primary care docs) would recommend ice to help keep the swelling down initially and alternating heat and ice after the swelling has gone down.
i don't know if what KB shared works or not, but i have seen and experienced enough things in life to know that different things work for different people. not every body responds to the same treatment. a healing technique that works for 1 individual may not have any effect on another individual. experienced and open minded doctors will tell you the same thing. people ridicule what they don't know because they only understand the world from their perspective since they are only able to see the world through their eyes. don't believe it? let me relate this in tennis terms. when Fed hits an amazing shot, how do we describe it? "Did you see that ridiculous shot?" it's no coincidence that we say this. when we don't understand something, we think it's ridiculous.
we are all unique beings so different things work for different people. for those folks who have practiced qi gong, they'll be familiar with the concept of energy and the use of energy to heal. for those folks, what KB is saying will make some sense.
No, 100 METER dash record 9.58 sec.
Someone else has probably beat me to this, but the 9.6 is 100 YARDS.
9.6 in HS is fast, but can be done. There is more speed in HS than you might think.
Four of them, with a few that were close behind at 9.9. I once asked the trach coach (we didn't have a track, only a straightaway next to the barbed wire/bart track), "Why don't you make them run 1/2 miles with me?" He did it once, and although they all had huge leads on me, by the last corner (at neighborhood park oval which had a howler monkey cage: Nicholl park, and they would hoot and scream each lap by), I smoked them all every time. Football players. Didn't care about distance training. This was Harry Ells high, now demolished, and four dead during my time there from gun shot. Even elementary school in Richmond had robbery/violence as a daily incident. Ghetto children, left over from the ship building era.
I would say it not only works with me, but with anyone who would try it as described, with pure intention/shoving pressure, stretch/strain on injury while doing so, alternating and three reps a day. Even if it's only a chance that it works, yet no one with guts enough to try it? To me, that says: "I'd rather be right than healed." Cowardly approaches gain cowardly rewards. How do you think a vibrator feels on a broken bone? Healed my break in three weeks.
Is there something you HAVEN'T experienced?
