Automated vending machines that provide medical marijuana are now in service in parts of West Los Angeles, California. The high tech machines, known as AVMs, will provide prescription marijuana users with after hours access to products like Wild Cherry and Purple Kush.
For those outside the state of California, this is no joke, the sales of medical marijuana have been growing throughout the state, and new cannabis dispensaries have been opening steadily in metro areas like Los Angeles.
The new medical marijuana vending machines are available in two locations of West Los Angeles, both in the mid-Wilshire district. What could be mistaken as the name of a personal injury based chiropractic office, or a physical therapy center, the Melrose Avenue located office called Melrose Quality Pain Relief, is a place to pick up one’s bud.
The other office, Herbal Nutrition Center (HNC), sounds like a place one could pick up organic produce and nutritional products. The only organics you’ll likely find here are their popular selling Purple Kush, which is an indica strain reportedly used to treat chronic pain.
A local CBS news station was recently on location at the HNC and filmed this broadcast which can be watched via YouTube.
According to the news reports these vending machines are the first in the state of California, the first in the nation, and first in the world, that dispense medical marijuana. How it works is that patients go to the dispensary first, show their medical marijuana prescription cards, pick out the choice of marijuana they want to purchase, are fingerprinted, and then receive an access card for vending machine use.
According to the news report, with the access card patients will have access to the store after hours, where they will be greeted by a security guard. They use the same card to access the AVM and receive their dosage of marijuana. Owners of the automated vending units believe the machines will provide greater convenience for patients at a lesser expense.
There hasn’t been much chiropractic coverage related to the topic of medical marijuana, except for this ganja guru article, but it’s an issue many chiropractors in the state of California are dealing with. It’s not uncommon for California Chiropractors to receive solicitation from local medical doctors seeking patient referrals for potential clients. No word yet on any joint (pun intended) offices run by pain based chiropractors and medical doctors, that would certainly be a Crack Pot facility. (Okay, lighten up)
Eli Stone Series Premiere on Thursday, January 31 has some pediatricians apparently throwing temper tantrums. The anticipated series premiere of this legal drama, which features actor Jonny Lee Miller in the role of Eli Stone, debuts with a story involving the topic of vaccines, the mercury-based preservative known as thimerosal, and a drug company cover-up.
The show will be airing on Thursday night after Lost, a very popular series about survivors of a plane crash.
The topic of vaccines in connection with any type of childhood disorder brings on some seriously heated debates. Topics such as autism, concerns about mercury preservatives in vaccines, and heavy-metal type poisoning symptoms have gained greater awareness in major media during the past year or so.
According to news reports, the American Academy of Pediatrics, has issued a reactionary statement regarding a recent New York Times article about the upcoming show. The organization has also sent a public letter to ABC asking that the network cancel the show’s episode. The reaction is similar to actions of chiropractic organizations strongly opposing the airing of a CBS broadcast of the show 2 1/2 men, in which several jokes were made regarding chiropractors.
ABC is defending its stance on the episode and the broadcast is expected to air as scheduled on Thursday night. At the time of writing this article, ABC is displaying Google adsense ads for searches related to the show’s title.
An interesting comment regarding the Thursday broadcast appeared in Google News, from David Kirby, author of the book Evidence of Harm. Kirby mentions that there are millions of unvaccinated children in the United States. He wants to know why the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention won’t support a study comparing unvaccinated children to those that have received vaccinations. A link was provided to representative Carolyn Maloney (D-NY) who has proposed funding for such a study.
Most interesting in the 2001 article (Vaccine Safety Concerns Are Up), was a report that nearly 70% of doctors surveyed stated patient worries have risen regarding vaccination, and more than one third of those same physicians reported having concerns of their own. That was seven years ago.
On September 18, 2007, actress and author Jenny McCarthy appeared on Oprah, to openly discuss her thoughts on autism and vaccination. While unlike ABC’s Eli, which is a comedy drama fantasy type program, certain groups were not particularly pleased with the increased attention the topic of vaccinating children received in that broadcast.
Have you ever woken up late and wondered what the people you’ve been following on Twitter have been up to? Maybe not, but I live on the West Coast and by the time I check in many UK and East Coast conversations have already passed me by.
Your twitter homepage displays 20 of the past tweets made by those you are following. If you scroll down to the bottom of your homepage you’ll see there’s a button that says “older” which allows you to view another page of 20 tweets.
For some, that’s enough to catch up on conversation, but others may want to go back a few hours more. The way the Twitter pages are currently set up, you can go back about 10 pages by continuing to click the “older” tab. Depending on how many people you’re following, that could be several hours of conversation.
Clicking the “older” button provides you with as many as 200 tweets, 20 per page with 10 pages of access. But what if you want to go even further back than that?
You may have already noticed that when you get to page 10 the “older” button is no longer displayed, giving you only the option to view newer pages. Fear not, there is an easy way to view up to 48 hours of missed twitter posts, you just have to make some manual adjustments on the displayed URL. Let’s take a look at some more screenshots and I’ll explain.
This screenshot shows the URL of your second page of tweets (after you’ve clicked on the older button).
For the next 10 pages you’ll have two options at the bottom of the right hand side of your browser. You can view newer pages or older pages.
When you get to page 10 the URL looks like the one shown below…
and your only displayed an option to view newer twitter posts…
Okay, so the URL on page 10 reads like this… http://twitter.com/home?page=10
To view page 11 simply change the string in the URL to this… page=11. Follow that same procedure to go back and view up to 48 hours of posts. When I checked this last night I was able to get as far back as to page 54, which would appear in the URL as follows… http://twitter.com/home?page=54
This morning I was able to go back 60 pages. How many pages you can go back will depend on how many people you’re following on Twitter. Either way, it appears that you can get a total of 48 hours displayed using this method.
PS: I have found references to both tweet and tweat when describing twitter posts.
There are so many diseases to choose from these days, no one seems to know exactly how many there are. I have heard estimates from medical experts of least 10,000 different ways to be sick. By remarkable coincidence, many of these diseases were discovered and described just as a new prescription medicine came along to treat the new disorder.
But just like everything else in life, the answer you get depends on whom you ask. For example, ask the cells in your body how many diseases there are. Without any hesitation they will answer, “There are two.” Believe it or not, your cells operate under the assumption there are only two diseases, one called Too Much and the other Too Little.
I know this sounds rather simple-minded, foolish and hopelessly naive, but everyone is entitled to their opinion, including the trifling 70 trillion life units that make up the human body. Kind of ridiculous that human cells could go around claiming to know more about health than actual medical professionals, isn’t it? Such arrogance. Those little pipsqueak cells would have us believe that the body’s innate ability to organize health far surpasses that of doctors and drug companies.
One thing that the medical world and our cells can agree on is that all processes in the body depend on chemistry. Cells are chemical factories called upon by the central nervous system nanosecond by nanosecond to help balance body chemistry from the inside. Medical doctors, meanwhile, believe in experimenting with different chemicals (drugs) from the outside, placed into the body in the hopes of changing things for the better.
Every single thing we do changes the body’s chemistry. Our rate of breathing, exercise and rest, the food we eat and beverages we drink, even our thoughts affect body chemistry. When the body chemistry is balanced, all things improve including healing, coordination, endurance, success in relationships and the ability to be creative.
At any given moment each cell inside the human body is either a) growing and repairing itself, or b) defending and guarding itself. No cell is able to accomplish growth and defense at the same time, but within a single body some cells may be in health building mode while other cells are guarding and protecting themselves.
Which brings us to Too Much of anything: food, carbon dioxide, oxygen, toxins, even excess nerve signaling from irritated nerves. Any of these may create interference with normal, healthy cell function. Consider someone who drinks “too much” alcohol. Coordination, thinking and speaking (not to mention driving) all become impaired when the body’s cells have to cope with too much alcohol.
Alcohol and other chemical toxins are often described as “harmless” in small amounts, even though the same substance may be deadly in a slightly greater quantity. The cells’ side of the story tells us that this thinking may be dead wrong. Even the smallest exposure to anything toxic will cause some cells to switch to their defensive mode and cease growth and repair. Depending on the toxin and the dose, a certain number of cells will even die.
A toxin or chemical may be called “harmless” when the rate of cell disruption and cell death it causes is at or below an “acceptable” level of damage. This is not to be confused with “harm free,” which means no harm occurs at all.
Too Little is the flip side of the health and disease coin, according to our cells. This means a lack of vital nutrients necessary for healthy cellular activities such as respiration, ingestion, excretion and chemical manufacture. If there is lack, there will be disorder and disease first in the cells, next in the tissue made up of cells, then the organ made from the tissue, then the whole body. By the same token, when the proper nutrients are available to cells in the proper quantities at the proper time, the miracle of good health can happen in the body.
Biologists estimate that within one square inch of skin there are 1,300 nerve cells, four yards of nerve fibers, 100 sweat glands and three yards of blood vessels. During the time it takes you to read this paragraph, about 50 million cells in your body will have died and been replaced. For most people, the entire body is renewed on the cellular level every couple of years. If the replacement cells are healthy, that bodes well for overall health.
The body possesses an amazing intelligence that automatically controls temperature, blood pressure, breathing, heart rate and blood chemistry at every moment?even when we are asleep. A balance of body chemistry, regulated by the body’s innate wisdom and controlled by the central nervous system, delivers just the right quantity and quality of the body’s own chemicals to exactly the right place at precisely the right time. Think of the body as nature’s perfect pharmacy.
The two-disease theory is alive and well among cells, it always has been and always will. It is also popular among a growing number of health professionals who find that focusing on health at the cellular level allows people to regain their health naturally without risk of adverse reactions.
As long as we hold onto our health freedom, we are each free to decide whether the cellular side of the story is just simple-minded, or just another magnificent example of nature’s elegant simplicity. Simplicity is defined by the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers as, “The degree to which a system or component has a design and implementation that is straightforward and easy to understand.”
When it comes to health and healing, the simplest explanation may possess the greatest wisdom of all.

I’ve been talking quite a bit about getting more specific with creation of content for everything from local listings to classified advertising. I noticed some good examples earlier today of classified ad data that includes model number and location information, exactly the granular type of information I’ve been talking about.
There’s a subcategory of the classifieds that features ads for thermography and surface EMG units. Looking at the screenshot we can see there are ads for a Thermeter / Neurocalometer which is wanted in Metairie, Louisiana.
Someone in Downey, California is selling a Neurodyne Semg 7000 unit. They used a brand name, model number, and location. All features that are important in getting one’s advertisement the most recognition.
I talked about going granular with classified ads in an earlier post, and I explained why it’s important to not create ads that are super short.
The ad in the screenshot for a used Dynatron 950 is a great example of including details in ones advertisements. The ad includes specifications, warranty information, operational details, and granular terms (words that would be unique to items like this) such as interferential, pre-modulated, biphasic, microcurrent, and coupling sensing.
The advertisement below it for a MyoVision 8000 Static sEMG and Tytron Thermoglide is also well created and includes granular details. According to the ad one can hook up entire unit to computer, notebook, or projector with a single USB cable (included). Also includes carrying case, training manuals, 2 brochure packs, extra scan pads and the latest software update. $5000 Free shipping!
Nearly every advertisement, whether it be for a MyoVision unit, Surface EMG 7000, Tytron c-3000, or Insight Millennium, included details and model numbers, along with information as to where the items were located.
It may seem redundant since I have gone over this stuff before, but detailed ads like this are easier to find by both humans and search engines. It’s important that your information be unique from everyone else’s, in order to be easily found. I wrote about going granular and how small businesses can be differentiating location information in my Chicagoland Chiropractors post and the West Valley Chiropractic post.
Ground-breaking research (1) has, for the first time, identified the actual changes that occur in the body, the nervous system and the brain during chiropractic spinal adjustments.
The study was conducted by award-winning Auckland researcher, Dr Heidi Haavik-Taylor. It demonstrates that chiropractic care sends signals to the brain that change the way the brain controls muscles.
“The process of a spinal adjustment is like rebooting a computer. The signals that these adjustments send to the brain, via the nervous system, reset muscle behaviour patterns,” said Dr Haavik-Taylor.
“By stimulating the nervous system we can improve the function of the whole body. This is something that chiropractors and their patients have known for years; and now we have some scientific evidence to prove it.”
Research findings Dr Haavik-Taylor has spent the last seven years researching the effects of chiropractic adjustments on the nervous system. However, in her latest research, carried out in conjunction with fellow New Zealander, Dr Bernadette Murphy, she was able to measure how brain waves are altered before and after spinal adjustments.
“This is the first time that anyone has used EEGs to prove that there are definite changes to the way the brain processes information after chiropractic care.”
International awards Dr Haavik-Taylor recently gained international recognition by winning an award from the World Federation of Chiropractic Research.
She has also just been awarded two grants from the Australian Spinal Research Foundation to further her studies on how chiropractic care affects the function of the nervous system and alters muscle function.
Earlier this year Dr Haavik-Taylor was recognised by her peers and awarded the New Zealand College of Chiropractic Alumni Chiropractor of the Year 2007 in recognition of her research and her passion for the discipline.
“Heidi’s work is ground-breaking on an international level by proving that chiropractic adjustments do alter and benefit the nervous system,” said Dr James Burt, president of the New Zealand Chiropractors Association.

There was an article on Wednesday’s BBC news page about work stress causing changes in the body. The news coverage was of a study that showed findings indicating that a stressful job has a direct biological impact on the body and raising the risk of heart disease.
Don’t believe stress causes physical changes? Spend a few hours a day sitting in traffic on the Los Angeles 4o5 freeway, and then another eight to 10 hours at work, spending a couple of more hours in congested traffic, on your way home. That results in some serious physical manifestation of stress, which often presents itself as a chiropractic vertebral subluxation.
Stress is no foreign term to the practice of chiropractic. San Diego County chiropractor, Dr. Darrel Crain, wrote an article about stress management and freeway driving. In it he talks about the body and how it adapts to stress, thanks to the expression of the body’s innate intelligence.
Chiropractor Sharon Gorman authored an article about being too blessed to be stressed. She talked about focusing on one’s blessings, and the good that comes from what we focus on.
In December of 2006 I author an article about stressed college students seeking chiropractic when preparing for final exams. Midterms and final examinations can bring on some major stress for college and university students.
Stressed-out worker Kristin Sheimer authored an article in 2006 about why all workers need regular chiropractic care. She talked about her misfortune of being one of over 50 million people in the US that suffer from chronic pain, and the one thing she found that helped manage it.
Darrel Crain also talked about stress on the immune and nervous system when ingesting the wrong foods, like hormone saturated bovine glandular secretions, a.k.a. cow’s milk. Crain asks does milk do a body that much good?
There are a zillion things you can do to help decrease emotional and physical stress. Find a chiropractor and get to work on a critical component to being healthier.
