The Power of Humility
Just as water cannot collect on mountain peaks, so good qualities and blessings cannot gather on the rocky peaks of pride.
If, instead, we maintain a humble, respectful attitude toward everyone, good qualities and inspiration will flow into our mind all the time,  like a stream flowing into a valley.
Learn how to cultivate the powerful mind of humility.

Health Tip of the Week
In science, most of the time when you see the letter “a” placed in front of a word, it means absent of without. Aphantasia is a new word to describe a rather odd phenomenon, the inability to visualize or have a “mind’s eye.” People who have this cannot “see” things, people’s faces, places they have been and the like, in their mind. Want to count sheep at night? It isn’t possible for people with this condition. They cannot visualize the sheep or the fence! The first reported case of someone losing this ability was in 1964 when a man recovered from heart surgery. It is estimates that 2.5% of the population experience this lack of “sight.”
Football and Brain
The last ten years has seen a huge uptick in post-concussive research from sports-specifically football. This has led to new recommendations for safety and care for those who have concussive events. New research into the effects of repeated head impacts on high school football players has shown changes in brain chemistry and metabolism even in players who have not been diagnosed with concussions. “We are seeing damage to neurons,” said Dr. Nauman in Developmental Neuropsychology. Data showed that neurons in the motor cortex region produce 50% less glutamine, a neurotransmitter.
That Voice in Your Head
Inner speech is the term used to describe that voice in our head. Some of us have more conversations internally than externally. For over a century we have known that inner speech is accompanied with tiny muscular movements in the larynx, detectable by EMG. (The same technology that many chiropractors use to detect the presence of subluxation.) The part of the brain that is responsible for this inner speech is know as Broca’s area in the left inferior frontal gyrus.Researchers are now using functional MRI studies to determine the difference between inner speech and those that hear voices in their head. Why? To better understand our brain and how it functions. This understanding can help people with brain injuries heal faster by activating specific regions of the brain through exercise. The physical and neurologic parts of our bodies are not as separate and distinct as traditional anatomy is taught. Changes or modifications in one area can have a dramatic impact on other, seemingly unrelated, areas. Chiropractic patients often experience this when an adjustment in one region can have a tremendously powerful impact in another.
