Story Seed - The Spine

Image Source:

"Why do the towers protect us?" the child asked looking up at the great spires that marched off into the horizon in either direction. Beams of energy exited the top of each tower, creating a shield of sorts for miles to either side all along the length of the Spine.

The child's father looked down at his daughter and mused that sometimes the wisest questions came from the most innocent of sources. "They were left there by those that came before. They do what they do because that it what they were made to do."

"Jahan said his dad told him that the towers protect us 'cause we're special, an' the Gods want to protect us." The little girl was gazing upward at her father, eyes seeming overlarge and full of wonder.

"Jahan's father is a mystic and believes many things which are not supported by facts. Does that make him wrong? I do not know, but I know that what I believe is that which I can verify with facts and evidence." He picked his child up and set her on his shoulders. Pointing with one hand he said, "You see that tower far away there? That tower does not emit the energy that the other towers do, and the field that brings our mild weather and shields us from storms ends near there."

"Is it broken?"

"Yes, I believe it is."

"Can you fix it daddy?"

He was silent for a moment. He knew that the tower was the third to have failed. That the Spine has stretched for three more towers and a thirty miles more in his father's day. "I don't know," he finally admitted, "but I hope so."

  1. Recently, a business associate shared with me an intriguing story about someone with back pain...

    Michelle Onoff is a successful yoga instructor. Yet for some reason, she suffered with lower back pain.

    As a chiropractor, and someone in the healthcare field, I was fascinated by this.

    I don't know about you, but I was under the impression that yoga instructors, given their active, stretch-filled, muscle-focused, posture-perfect profession and lifestyle, would be the LAST PEOPLE ON EARTH to experience back pain.

    Actually, I was kind of shocked.

    If a health-minded yoga instructor can be dealt a crippling back pain blow, what does this say about the rest of us?

    Here's Michelle story in her own words. I think it'll inspire hope if you're suffering...

    "I was feeling very weak in my core area. And I was having some radiating pain in my lower back.

    And I was going to the doctors, and they were telling me things like you need to have disc replacement.

    You need to have all these surgeries...

    You need to be on these pain medications;

    And they wanted to put me through a lot of surgical procedures...

    I didn’t want to do ANY of that. But the pain was so bad... I needed some relief.

    So I went to two neurosurgeons and I went to a back pain specialist...

    The surgeons wanted to operate on me in different places...

    … and the back pain specialist wanted to do various procedures, including implanting something permanent in my spine.

    I’ve had four procedures that involved needles in my spine, epidurals in my spine and that only gave me a little bit of temporary relief for a couple days.

    But it did not cure or really help anything.

    It just put a band-aid on a pain for couple of days and that was it.

    After my first session of Back Pain Relief4Life, I felt an opening in my back that I haven’t felt in a long time.

    I felt stronger to my core and I felt that that radiating burning heat pain that I was feeling, seem to dissipate a little bit.

    It seemed to just open up my back in general.

    And then after my second session today, I noticed EVEN MORE the stretch in my lower back and more strengthening in muscles that had been weak that I think might help support my lower back.

    I was VERY SKEPTICAL about doing Back Pain Relief4Life. Because, as I am a yoga instructor, I feel very knowledgeable in anatomy. And how to help people that come to me in pain.

    But I was not aware of certain muscles that I was not using in the body that might help my lower back."

    Here's the back pain program she's referring to:

    I share this with you today because if you suffer from back pain (like 3/4 of the population), I'm told this pain relief program WORKS WONDERS.

    People, in as little as 16 minutes, have experienced nothing less than total relief. Do nothing more than a specific sequence of 8 simple, pain-relieving movements.

    Sounds incredible, but yet Michelle is a prime example.

    See for yourself. Especially if you're being told surgery, needles and medication are in your immediate future.

    PS: My personal takeaway? Michelle was humble to admit yoga wasn't working for her.

    To me? That takes guts.

    She was also smart enough to stay away from drugs and surgery when there were other more natural options.

    But sometimes, one gets to the point where you'll try ANYTHING to get even a little bit of relief. If you're at that point, I encourage you to check out:
