Just a Week of NSAID Use Tied to Increased Heart Attack Risk

I have often said that, "No one has ever had pain because of an aspirin deficiency." This means that taking a drug for your pain NEVER gets to the root cause of your pain. You can have pain from a bone not moving properly, a weak or tight muscle, a nutritional deficiency or from a disease or pathological condition...but never from an "Advil, Motrin or Celebrex deficiency." Things got worse because not only are taking drugs NOT getting to the cause...they can actually kill you in a week. Here is an important study that just one week of taking Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs can cause heart attacks:

Meta-Analysis: Just a Week of NSAID Use Tied to Increased Heart Attack Risk

Use of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) for even 1 week is associated with increased risk for myocardial infarction, a meta-analysis in The BMJ finds.

The following list is an example of NSAIDs available:
  • aspirin.
  • celecoxib (Celebrex)
  • diclofenac (Cambia, Cataflam, Voltaren-XR, Zipsor, Zorvolex)
  • diflunisal (Dolobid - discontinued brand)
  • etodolac (Lodine - discontinued brand)
  • ibuprofen (Motrin, Advil)
  • indomethacin (Indocin)

Using individual patient data from four studies from healthcare databases, researchers identified over 61,000 cases of acute MI and 385,000 controls without MI. Compared with NSAID nonuse, current use of each NSAID studied -- including diclofenac, ibuprofen, naproxen, and celecoxib -- was associated with increased MI risk. The elevated risk was not higher for celecoxib than for other NSAIDs.

The increased risk generally emerged during the first week of use and was highest during the first month. Higher doses were also associated with greater risks.

Dr. Harlan Krumholz, editor-in-chief of New England Journal of Medicine Journal Watch Cardiology, weighed in: "People, particularly those at high risk for cardiac disease, should be aware of these risks as they contemplate use of these popular medications. This large study further reinforces that these risks are large enough to be meaningful for many patients."

What is Applied Kinesiology Muscle Testing and How Does it Work?

"How did my muscle just get stronger when you pressed on my spine?"

This is a common question that patients, especially athletes who tend to know their bodies very well, will ask their Applied Kinesiologist.

When you experience your first examination and treatment with a doctor who specializes in Applied Kinesiology (AK) it seems impossible that your muscles will test at apparently different strengths in a matter of seconds. The reason this is possible is that Applied Kinesiologists are not measuring your muscle's strength... they are measuring your muscle's function. This reading of your muscle function can change just like your blood pressure measurement can change depending on current stimuli. (i.e. White Coat Syndrome)

Not knowing that a muscle test performed by a trained Applied Kinesiologist is NOT a strength test and actually represents a reading of your nervous system and therefore can change immediately is where much of the misunderstanding of AK stems from!

This Introduction to Applied Kinesiology Video is meant for doctors. However, I think you will find it illuminating.

You might find it interesting to know how this innovative and growing healthcare discipline can improve your health and help you to live pain-free.  Here is my explanation of What is Applied Kinesiology Muscle Testing and How Does it Work?

"Applied Kinesiology (AK) muscle testing represents a window into your overall health. Instead of using manual muscle testing as a measure of 'disability,' your Applied Kinesiologist uses muscle testing as a measure of 'ability'.

Before AK, the results of muscle strength testing were thought to be static like seeing a fracture on an x-ray. In 1964, Dr George Goodheart’s breakthrough discovery was that muscle 'weakness' was not necessarily a pathological problem, but could be a functional one.

When used as part of a thorough examination by a doctor certified in Applied Kinesiology, manual muscle testing can be a diagnostic tool as a dynamic measure of relative function not as a static label of absolute disability.

  Not only can muscle testing indicate the proper therapy to treat a specific musculoskeletal condition, but Applied Kinesiologists eventually found it could be a predicator of overall health.

  AK muscle testing magnifies the depth of the meaning of the muscle test similar to what a microscope does to the magnifying glass; it reveals more of what is happening deep in your physiology. This is why AK manual muscle testing can find health issues that many other less refined diagnostic tests may miss. A problem cannot exist unless a solution also exists and AK Muscle Testing may find the solution to what is causing your problem when it doesn't show up on x-rays, MRIs or blood tests."

The Allergy Technique ™- A Natural Remedy to Help You with Allergic Reactions

“Miracles do not occur in contradiction to nature.  They are only in contradiction 
with what we think we know of nature.”   - St. Augustine

My allergies are gone after two treatments…How is this possible?”



This was the question a patient asked me after I relieved his 30 years of suffering with seasonal allergies after just two sessions... You may be tempted to ask your doctor the same question.

I feel the reason the Allergy Technique™ is able to work so dramatically is that an allergy is basically an overreaction of your nervous system to something it should not be reacting to at all. Unlike other health issues such as low back pain, which can occur in varying degrees, allergies are an all or nothing phenomenon. You either have allergies or you don’t. It is like turning on a light switch. The Allergy Technique that your doctor is using on you simply turns the switch off. How?

By using applied kinesiology, chiropractic, acupressure and homeopathy your doctor is able to influence your nervous system to stop it in its tracks from overreacting to a stimulus or allergen (food or environmental). The acupuncture points on your head are believed to have been discovered 5,000 years ago and are known to be incredibly powerful. What your doctor is doing is stimulating these points to desensitize your nervous system to a very specific trigger (allergen).

The reason this technique can work immediately is because it is not the food or pollen that is the problem, it is your nervous system basically getting too nervous and overreacting to it. Your doctor is essentially calming down your nervous system in a very specific manner. This is why you need to have regular treatments to decrease nervous tension and this why your doctor may work on the bones of your skull to relieve tension there as well.

Since allergies also have a histamine or adrenal response, your doctor might have you take some natural anti-histamine or adrenal support supplements to go along with the technique. These are great because they nurture the healing process and do not make you dependent on them or cause you to become drowsy like drugs do.

Power Adrenal Support and AirMaxx are excellent supplements that can help you in naturally relieving allergic symptoms.

When Should You Call 911?

A patient called my office asking for an appointment for sharp chest pain. He left a message saying that I helped a friend of his who had similar symptoms. I recalled that in the case of his friend I discovered upon examination that one of his ribs on the left side of his ribcage was subluxated (misaligned slightly - as opposed to a dislocated or broken rib). Through a precise chiropractic adjustment I was able to get the rib moving properly and the sharp pain was immediately relieved. Unlike his friend, who is a long time patient of mine, I had no idea why this man was having sharp left sided chest pain and I recommended he immediately go to the Emergency Room to rule out a heart attack or other potentially serious condition. I related that if it is a rib not moving properly, like I diagnosed on his friend (my patient) then yes, he might have wasted his time going to the ER. However, if it was not a rib problem and something more serious...then NOT going to the ER could kill him!

He angrily hung up and we never heard from him again.

Unknown-1.jpegYou breathe about 20,000 times a day so a subluxated rib is incredibly painful and can mimic a heart attack; however, since DEATH is a lot harder to fix than a rib problem... common sense dictates that he should go to the ER and make sure he is not experiencing a more ominous condition - then we can move on to the more easily fixable rib problem.

Incidentally, the same rib deep breathing exercise that is so helpful for Hiatal Hernias (GERD, acid reflux) is also great for rib problems. Do 3 repetitions 3 times a day for excellent posture and rib health. Remember, your heart and lungs sit in the rib cage. See the exercise here:

Let me share with you a story that illustrates the urgency of this point. The father of one of my closest friends (a renown physicist) was lecturing in Europe. He complained about chest pain and his wife said,"Go to sleep and we will go the hospital in the morning." There was no morning... he died in his sleep. I want you to have a morning and not a mourning. When in doubt... always error on the side of caution. Call 911 when you feel chest pain, shortness of breath, blurry vision or any symptoms that you have never had before.

Digestive Problems - Hiatal Hernia

"A grateful mind is a great mind which eventually attracts to itself great things." - Plato Hope you had a Happy Thanks-Giving. Along with giving thanks; you probably gave your digestive system quite a workout. Overeating can lead to or exacerbate what is known as a Hiatal Hernia.

I have been helping people with Hiatal Hernias (which is now commonly called GERD - Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease) for over 30 years.

*You do not need drugs for most cases of GERD, Heartburn or Reflux; many of which can lead to a Vitamin B12 deficiency. Frequently, it is a Hiatal Hernia…see below. ****************************** Hiatal Hernia (from Web MD®) Any time an internal body part pushes into an area where it doesn't belong, it'scalled a hernia.

The hiatus is an opening in the diaphragm -- the muscular wall separating the chestcavity from the abdomen. Normally, the esophagus (food pipe) goes through the hiatus and attaches to the stomach. In a hiatal hernia (also called hiatus hernia) the stomach bulges up into the chest through that opening. There are two main types of hiatal hernias: sliding and paraesophageal (next to the esophagus).


In a sliding hiatal hernia, the stomach and the section of the esophagus that joins the stomach slide up into the chest In a sliding hiatal hernia, the stomach and the section of the esophagus that joins the stomach slide up into the chest through the hiatus. This is the more commontype of hernia.


*Applied Kinesiologists are trained to pull the sliding stomach back into the abdominal cavity thereby alleviating symptoms.

**Symptoms are not just stomach related: Along with heartburn a Hiatal Hernia (as I said, now called GERD to make it sound like a disease) can also cause:

1. Heart palpitations 2. Midback pain 3. Ear ringing 4. Insomnia 5. Shortness of breath - often leading to fatigue 6. Skin problems - in Chinese Medicine the skin and digestive system are related 7. Chronic infections - new research shows that 70% of your immune system is located in your gut

***Poor posture is a major contributor so make sure you are not hunching over when you are sitting and standing. Do NOT lie down immediately after eating.


The Wall Stretch is very helpful in keeping a Hiatal Hernia at bay. (after it is corrected)

Daylight Savings and the Pineal Gland

Daylight Savings Time ended this past week. This means along with adjusting the clocks in your house it is TIME for you to come in and have your "internal clock" adjusted - this clock is known as your Pineal Gland. The Pineal makes melatonin and controls your internal rhythm and helps with sleep and wakefulness, mood, hormone balance and energy levels.


NOTE: It is also a good idea to have your internal clock calibrated whenever you fly between time zones!

Chiropractic / Applied Kinesiology (AK) Approach

When you come in for your exam your doctor can either block light from your eyes or apply a mild pressure to your jaw…if either one causes you to weaken you may need your Pineal adjusted. This is done with a very simple chiropractic alignment to your jawbone (mandible).

One treatment usually corrects the condition. You may need the mineral Zinc also.

  *If you or someone you know is feeling “off” since the changing of the clocks; have them come in and see if we can help you...and them get back in rhythm and feeling in a better MOOD.

The Pineal Gland controls sleep and remember you HEAL when you sleep. I believe sound sleep the ultimate anti-aging elixir.

**You can get into a “ slump” just like any athlete. When people get their Pineal Gland adjusted they often say that things seems to start flowing better and some even go so far to say that they feel LUCKIER!

  ***Lastly, according to the research below... adjusting the Pineal might help with weight loss; along with Dr. Charles’ Weight Loss Recipe.


Can Bright Light at Night Lead to Obesity? By Lisa Rapaport March 11, 2016

(Reuters Health) - Obesity rates may surge in places where artificial lights blaze all night compared to communities where people tend to live in darkness after the sun goes down, a recent study suggests.

To explore this connection, researchers analyzed U.S. military satellite images of nighttime illumination around the globe and country-level data from the World Health Organization (WHO) on the prevalence of overweight and obese people.

Artificial light at night contributed to excessive weight in men and women about as much as eating junk food, the research team reports in the International Journal of Obesity, online February 23.

"Because of artificial light at night, we often eat in the wrong time, that is, after the natural dusk, when metabolic processes slow down," said N.A. Rybnikova of the University of Haifa in Israel.

The study doesn't prove light bulbs cause obesity, and scientists aren't yet certain how lamps or the glow from gadgets like tablets and televisions might influence how much people weigh, researchers caution.

But it's possible artificial light might contribute to obesity by suppressing the production of melatonin, which helps regulate sleep cycles. (from the Pineal Gland)

These lights may also contribute to what's known as social jet lag, or disruption of the body's natural circadian rhythms that happens when people sleep and wake at times that are at odds with their internal biological clocks.

For women and men, higher birth rates appear to be one of the stronger predictors of excess weight and obesity.

Urbanization, as well as calorie intake of oils, fats and carbohydrates also appear to predict excessive weight in men and women alike. Consuming more roots and tubers was linked to a lower likelihood of excessive weight, the study also found.

Together with variables like eating habits and exercise levels, nighttime light explains up to about 73% of the variation in rates of excess weight and obesity in women and up to 68% in men, the study found.

The study builds on earlier research linking excessive weight to the use of tiny screens and other sources of light in bedrooms at night, the authors note.

"The evidence that exposure to artificial light at night is associated with metabolic disturbances is continuing to accumulate," said Laura Fonken, a researcher at the University of Colorado who wasn't involved in the study.

"Overall, it seems that there aren't any downsides to trying to keep a consistent sleep schedule and avoid nighttime light exposure," Fonken added by email.

"Anything to improve one's 'sleep hygiene' like reducing light and noise at night should help improve sleep quality, and this may help your body work more efficiently," Karatsoreos added.

"We seem to be finally waking up to the realization that disrupted sleep and biological rhythms are associated with many health problems, including metabolic disruption, obesity, and cardiovascular disease," Karatsoreos said.

******************************************** Dr. Charles’ Lemons and Black Coffee as Weight Loss Aids

"I have a theory that bitter and sour taste bud stimulation helps digestion and weight loss. Whereas, it looks to me that sugary and salty foods promote weight gain. (Actually this should be pretty obvious to everyone by now) Please take this with a grain of salt, actually skip the salt if you are looking to lose weight, and strive to stimulate your bitter and sour taste buds by:

  1. Sucking on a lemon 3 times a day and putting lemon in your water with meals. (Real lemonade SHOULD be sour)
  2. Drinking black coffee (No milk and sugar) with the following recipe."

America's Opioid Addiction

Last week HBO presented sickening statistics and facts about the staggering damage that opioid drugs are inflicting upon America.    Opioid Addiction The first fact is that, "As of 2015, 2.6 million Americans were addicted to prescription opioids (oxycontin, vicodin, percocet) and heroin. As a consequence these same drugs are involved in nearly 30,000 deaths a year."

Also, "75% of heroin addicts used prescription opioids before turning to heroin..."

Therefore, people got hooked on these highly addicted drugs through their doctors and then as one person said, "I switched to heroin because it is cheaper."

One woman who was featured in the original oxycontin commercial, seen playing with her grandchildren, said in the interview that she became so addicted to oxycontin that she lost everything: her house, her car, her job and the only reason she is now alive is that her medical insurance ran out and wouldn't pay for her monthly prescription.

In fact, two of the seven people featured on the original oxycontin commercial died as active opioid abusers.

To their credit, The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recently issued guidelines suggesting doctors use nonopioid therapies when possible and limit the dosage and duration of these highly addictive drugs.

I believe one of the most powerful nonopioid therapies is a Precise Chiropractic Adjustment. 

You might be asking why is this?

The answer is because chiropractic adjustments are like getting a natural dose of healthy opioids from the inside - out.

Now you might be asking how is this?

According to the Journal of Manipulative and Physiological Therapeutics, Chiropractic Adjustments increase beta endorphins in the blood. Endorphins are your body's natural opioid. Actually, when Candace Pert discovered "endorphins" she gave her discovery this name because she considered them to be "endogenous morphine." Meaning morphine made from within the body.

Therefore, when a person receives a precise chiropractic adjustment the body will release its own natural supply of opioids in a safe, deliberate dosage. This is will lead to a decrease in pain and an elevated mood. (with no side-effects)

Perhaps the best way to stop dependency on external drug use is to get the body to make its own "drugs" by the utilization of nonopioid therapies such as: precise chiropractic adjustments, acupuncture, exercise, meditation, laughter, goal setting and proper diet all to naturally access the greatest pharmacy in the world - the human body!

Common Sense in American Health Care

Happy 4th of July to you, In honor of our country I decided to read Thomas Paine’s Common Sense. It was said to be the deciding factor in America’s decision for Independence.

As a healthcare provider for 30 years I saw the similarity between what Paine wrote and what I feel about our current health care system.

I hope you can see the importance in this new version of Common Sense in American Healthcare

Thank you and I appreciate you reading this and sharing it with loved ones,

Dr. Eugene Charles

*Here is an example of a young boy whose life would have been derailed before it started if it wasn’t for his father’s persistence in using “common sense" in health care.


Common Sense in American Health Care

America decided over 200 years ago to free herself from the shackles of European colonialism and become master of her own fate. Even with all sorts of problems, the United States has become a haven for freedom, innovation and opportunity; yet she remains enslaved to a different outdated monarchy.

Why is it that America has the most expensive Health Care System in the world and yet when graded for results year after year she ranks LAST among all industrialized nations in overall health?

Why is it that healthcare costs now consume an ever-growing percentage of total economic expenditure and is said to be the greatest threat facing the U.S. economy. The threat of terrorism represents a real danger; however, statistically speaking the odds are slim it will cost you your life. In fact, according to statistics the odds are far greater that medical errors (the 3rd leading cause of death in the U.S.) will kill you before a terrorist attack does.

Likewise, statistics have shown that more people die yearly from taking aspirin and ibuprofen properly than die from AIDS in America. There is much talk and money invested in AIDS awareness and treatment (and rightly so) and yet why isn’t there a simple campaign to save the lives of the greater number of loved ones who die from this no less tragic cause of taking over the counter medications?

Could the answer be that the money is not being wisely invested? Could it be that we are searching for answers to our health problems in the wrong places? Could it be that we are entrenched in a stifling mindset that we are afraid to speak out against? Could it be that we are afraid to take responsibility for our lives and our health and to live as a free people?

The opening statement that America continues to be enslaved by a European Monarch is derived from the fact that American health care is rooted in European discoveries. In France, Louis Pasteur discovered the germ theory and a Scottish born physician, Alexander Fleming, discovered penicillin. The germ theory and antibiotics should be applauded as tremendous breakthroughs and have unquestionably saved innumerable lives from the scourge of infection.

However, do you think that is all there is to health? Antibiotics saved lives but did it promote health? Do you see that perhaps scientists became enamored with their science and forgot the purpose of their mission? The overutilization of antibiotics and the “pill for a problem” mentality have pushed us to the brink of Orwellian destruction by antibiotic resistant bacteria that threaten human existence. These superbugs were created in response to the irresponsible use of wonderdrugs.

Let me be clear, I believe in cleaning wounds and sterile operating rooms as advocated by Dr. Joseph Lister (of Listerine fame) but what works in extreme cases may not be appropriate in promoting health on a day-to-day basis. You coddle a body too much and it weakens and atrophies. Drugs don’t strengthen a person; they weaken him by doing the work for the person when they are taken unnecessarily.

Except in cases of a weakened immune system perhaps the germ is not the problem. Modern research is working on drugs that get the body’s immune system to destroy cancer cells and repair other bodily tissues because the direct drug approach has failed miserably. I see this as a step in the right direction because the body can cure what it has created. It is the body and mind that cure…not drugs unless they work with these two. The question remains, “Why do we support this drug-based system when, according to health standings compared with other countries, it is failing?”

Is it because we are afraid to question? What would you do if your favorite sports team had the highest payroll year after year and yet it came in last every season? Would you think they should keep following the same plan? Do you think that spending more on the same players, coaches and manager would solve the problem?

No you wouldn’t would you? A dedicated, intelligent fan would say we need a fresh, new approach. We need new players with a hunger for success with a burning desire to win. The beauty of this example as it applies to healthcare is that when this new team wins…we all WIN!

What can The United States best do to foster its dictum of promoting life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness? The most obvious answer is to first provide the best healthcare system possible! How do we convert our current sickcare system into a healthcare system?

Common sense dictates that the things help us to stay healthy will also improve health when it falters – rest, exercise, wholesome foods, clean water, fresh air, sunshine, an optimistic attitude, laughter, love, spiritual convictions, honest hard work and consistent healthcare treatments with experts that work with the body not instead of it.

Where should you look for these healthcare experts? We should, as always, start in the acre of diamonds at our feet; in the USA. The healing systems of chiropractic and applied kinesiology are two disciplines born in America. In Davenport Iowa, Daniel David Palmer delivered the first modern chiropractic adjustment in 1895 (I say modern because Hippocrates said over 2000 years ago to “look to the spine for disease.”) when he realigned a spinal segment and restored hearing to his janitor.

In Detroit Michigan Dr. George Goodheart performed the first applied kinesiology technique in 1964 and healed the chronic shoulder pain of the man who delivered water bottles to his office.

It looks like another American Revolution is needed – a wellness revolution some have called it. America has the resources to make people healthier than ever. She needs to stop investing a penny to tell people to exercise while spending a dollar to convince people they need to be on some sort of drug.

The addiction to drugs is rising and why not. The average American is bombarded to a nonstop cascade of drug commercials, advertisements and billboards. Sadly, if people are getting addicted to legal drugs it may be unethical but it’s not a crime. In fact, to those promoting drugs it’s good business. To this cartel the only shame is when someone dies; the shame not being loss of life…the shame being a loss of revenue. Remember, the drug never proposes to cure anything, just keep a person limping along until he finishes his life of quiet desperation hopefully with one last prescription filled. Are drugs needed some times? Yes, but not to the sickening degree it is currently.

America is called the land of opportunity and paradoxically her chance for the greatest opportunity to her children; namely, that of supreme health lies within her own borders. I feel that if The United States Health Care System adopted a more holistic approach and utilized the home grown healing disciplines of chiropractic and applied kinesiology instead of the European model of emergency medicine that it is currently based on, America would climb from the cellar of being the sickest country in the industrialized world and rise up to first place and be the healthiest country within 3-5 years of adopting this approach of focusing more on healing and less on medicine.

Here is the first step in my new Power Kinetics® (PK)

5-step program to the most intelligent and healthy way to get the perfect stomach.

The Power Kinetics abdominal exercise. Step 1—Part 1

BEGIN by pushing your feet into the floor and  contract your gluteus muscles. This will slightly elevate the pelvis off of the floor and increase the intensity of the abdominal contraction. Most ab exercises contract the hip flexors. (i.e. by raising the knees up towards your head) This is biomechanically unsound and creates tension in the low back—a MAJOR reason why so many “well meaning” people hurt their backs while trying to strengthen their abdominal muscles.

These PK Sit-ups are safe and protect your low back! Also, contracting your buttocks develops the gluteal muscles while you also strengthen your stomach.

The Power Kinetics abdominal exercise. Step 1—Part 2

FINISH by exhaling; blow-out forcibly (this further contracts and tones the abdominal muscles) as you bring your body, and your hands up—TOWARDS THE CEILING!  Do not squeeze yourself into a ball. This compresses the very sensitive abdominal organs that you are developing your stomach muscles to protect! If you find your neck muscles are not strong enough and you feel them straining then put your hands behind your neck for added support.

Do as many repetitions as you can. Do these three days a week. Perform the Power Kinetic® exercises on the alternative days, so you are stimulating the muscle fibers six days a week.

*Check with your physician before starting any exercise program.

Bonus: To help remove fat from the stomach region take 2 Relora with Bacopa daily. The PK exercise DVD and the Relora are available here:
