Research on Health
In October 2018, I had an injury which actually stopped the blood flow and nerve signals to my right arm. It was immediately numb and completely limp. This condition threatened to be long term, if not permanent, and for a professional hand drummer, a total nightmare. So the short version of this story is that I dove straight into deep tissue / Chiropractic therapy and diet patterns that seemed to really work for me. I have always been a ‘proof is in the pudding’ type guy, and a bit skeptical of the plethora of healing / diet methods out there. But since my health & career were literally on the line, I did hundreds of hours of research and found some things that have actually helped me in profound ways. Now (9 months later) I am back doing concerts around the world and have lost 30lbs with a greatly improved mind & inspiration to dig deep into the art forms & relationships that are meaningful to me. The real silver lining however, is that it has inspired me to take an honest
look at my life, my over all health and my vision of how I want to live the years ahead. Some of the main research I have been doing on health, I’ll share below. I will add, and replace articles & videos as I continue researching, and as new research comes out. You may find something in here for yourself or someone you know. But even if this doesn’t seem right for you, there are some very interesting topics to browse through.
Dr. Dale Hameister at Mountain View Chiropractic is the therapist who helped heal my arm injury and without a doubt a miracle worker and gifted healer. I can’t recommend him strongly enough for any condition, but in particular for musicians and athletes with conditions which should receive some attention, or in stubborn peoples cases (like me) I waited until a full on, career threatening injury arrived. Even if you are not in the Boulder/Denver area, and can’t come see Dale, simply finding an expert in your area that knows about body mechanics, deep tissue and the Chiropractic arts, can help asses and hopefully prevent you ever having an injury like mine. If you contact Dale, give him my name and get an extra smile out of the deal:)
FASTING MIMICING & LOVGEVITY DIET
Dr Valter Longo is a leading researcher into the science of keeping the body free of disease through a combination of diet & fast-mimicking cycles. He is a deep well of information regarding what is going on in our bodies as we age and how the body can rebuild healthy systems. Check out some of his interviews below (there are a bunch more if you get interested). Also, check out his website here and his book is just out as well. Highly recommended to at least check his work out.
SLEEP & TIME RESTRICTED EATING
Satchin Panda is the leading expert on the science of Circadian Rhythms & Sleep. The data that is coming out now is powerful and eye opening about the importance of paying more attention to these rhythms. He also has done amazing studies on the revolutionary benefits of ‘Time Restricted Eating’ which has made amazing changes in my ‘musicians style - eating late’ type of behavior. Amazing knowledge and well worth spending a little time with the videos below & beyond.
