I was a competitive cheerleader for about ten years. It involved lots of hardcore conditioning and gymnastics training. By age 17 I started feeling pain in my right shoulder so I started seeing doctors to try and figure out the problem. I would come home after a rough practice or just on an ordinary day and the pain was almost nauseating. Throughout the past ten years, I have been to physical therapy on and off. I have several MRI's/ CT-Scans/X-Rays, 3 cortisone shots and dye injections. I've seen up to ten different doctors and had 3 major surgeries. I had my last surgery in May of 2012 by one of the best Doctors in the U.S. and was fortunate enough to figure out the problem and get it fixed. It's been over 1 year since my surgery and my shoulder is ten times better than it ever was but I still feel muscle, bone, and joint pain in my shoulder, neck, and back. I was recently introduced to the Power Strips by Dr. Gilson and was skeptical at first because I had tried everything. Once I applied the strip to my shoulder and neck area I felt relief within minutes. Everything felt relaxed and I was able to take the focus off my shoulder for once. The great thing about them is that the ingredients are all natural herbs so there is no strong scent or cold, uncomfortable feeling and they last up to 2 days! As a former athlete, childcare worker, professional artists, and someone who enjoys exercise - I highly recommend them. If you are someone with constant bone/joint/muscle pain/arthritis/ inflammation then give these a try. You will not be disappointed!

As a Chiropractor, I have so many different patients walk into my office with an array of problems. Herniated Discs, muscle spasms, Rheumatoid Arthritis, tennis elbow, rotator cuff tears, sciatica, headaches, whiplash injuries, plantar fasciitis, strained knee ligaments, carpal tunnel syndrome and that was just yesterday! The common denominator in all of these issues is pain! My job is to align the spine to remove nerve interference so that the human body can function at 100% of its incredible ability that God created in us. We don't get enough sleep, eat diets full of junk foods and sugar and stress our bodies more then ever in 2014. Chiropractic care is a must to keep our bodies free from vertebral subluxations to allow us to function at our optimal potential.
I have recently come across a product, the PowerStrip by FGXpress, that is a tremendous complement to my care and something that you must try for yourself. It is an amazing combination of technology and natural ingredients that my patients and people around the globe are finding to be the answer to their problem of pain. It is an FDA listed medical device for pain relief that is Doctor formulated and recommended, affordable and a lot of times gives immediate results! PowerStrips have 2 layers. Our bodies give off heat and energy, an outer layer of germanium reflects that heat back into the deep tissues where we will see increased blood flow and oxygen. Infrared Images prove how effective this is and can be seen on this video by Dr. Adam Saucedo: http://youtu.be/lSzvPO5K4mg The inner layer is composed of Silver Ions, Korean Red Ginseng and Marine CMP Phytoplankton, three amazing ingredients that work synergistically to decrease pain and infuse nutrition into our tissues. All of this is blended together with a water soluble adhesive in a plant based matrix that is gentle on the skin and can be worn for up to 48 hours, which is unheard of in a typical pain patch!
PowerStrips are not healing these many problems that cause pain in our bodies! They supply nutrients and heat to fuel the body and give it more of the ingredients needed to allow us to function at our best. Doctors and patients are seeing incredible results when applying PowerStrips! Stories from around the world are pouring in about the amazing power of our product: avoiding surgeries, no more pain, reducing or eliminating harmful and addictive prescription medications that can have horrible side effects and joy and activity returning to people who have been unable to exercise or enjoy their lives. Healthcare changes have driven up costs and people are having to pay hundreds of dollars a month for prescription drugs with higher deductibles and co-pays. PowerStrips are an affordable all natural alternative!
Chiropractic and PowerStrips are a perfect combination for optimal health and wellness!
Please contact me for more information. Healthcare Practitioners will love how our product fits into their practice and your patients will thank you for getting them into their hands.

I remember the story but I don’t think I ever thought about it until a couple years ago. I was teaching a lesson to a high school youth group and as I read it I realized something that I never noticed before. Look at the title again, the little engine that could, not couldn’t. I can see the little guy struggling to get up the hill, huffing and puffing, saying “I think I can, I think I can”. But the whole time he was worrying about not making it, deep down, he had the ability to do it. He could. The story isn’t about trying but about doing. It’s about a little train that was made to travel along the tracks and take people here and there. It’s about action, belief and commitment. He had to start up his engine, believe in himself and move down the tracks toward the hill. He had the ability to get up the hill all along but didn’t think he could do it. You and I are exactly the same as that engine! We have abilities that we’re afraid to use. We can get up the hill but a lot of times we don’t even start the engine. You have to realize that whatever you want to do in life, whatever your desire is, whatever drives you, you can accomplish. If you have the desire to become a doctor, then God has put in you everything you need to succeed. If your passion is to be an Olympic athlete, and you possess the God given talent, then you have exactly what is required to do it. Not everyone gets the gold medal and a lot of Olympic hopefuls don’t even get to the Olympics but if the desire is there, then you can’t ignore it. You were made for a purpose, you could end up being the coach that uses years of experience to lead another athlete to the ultimate prize. You don’t know what’s around the next corner of your life, but enjoy the journey, start your engine and go up the hill. As Jimmy Valvano said, "Don't give up, don't ever give up!" You can!

That was our day, Tuesday. For the last few years I spent some time with my oldest patient who would have been 100 years old in September. 99 years, 5 months and a day, an incredible life. Josephine went home to be with the Lord early this morning. I have mixed emotions, selfishly wanting our Tuesdays to continue but happy knowing that she is at peace after a long battle with congestive heart failure, on hospice for the last year. I didn’t have to hop on a plane every Tuesday like Mitch Albom did to visit Morrie, she was just a couple miles away. I enjoyed our conversations, talking about her dinner menu or her egg for lunch that day. She couldn’t bowl any more, that ended when she was 95. The days of cooking dinners, shopping with her daughter and babysitting were gone too. She wanted to hear about my kid’s games or what was happening at the office. She loved to tell me about her husband, the chiropractor, her grandson the musician or her granddaughter the teacher. Last Tuesday she was looking forward to seeing the snow. She enjoyed the simple things of life: a smile, a flower, a good meal and her family. Our lives get complicated and hectic, we forget the simple things. If we could only be more like Josephine, enjoying relationships, laughter, and a good night sleep, which for her was few and far between. She displayed contentment, optimism, faith, hope and love. She had faith in her Savior, loved her family and friends, and was hopeful of her future eternity. Josephine was a beautiful woman who had a wonderful life. I will miss our times together and look forward to seeing her again in heaven. Tuesdays will definitely not be the same.
