Does Anyone use TEETER HANGUP to reverse spinal compression.?

Does Anyone use TEETER HANGUP to reverse spinal compression.?

I have been using TeeterHangup about 12 years now and I'm pretty sure it's the only thing that has saved me from being crippled. The inversion therapy is like a blessing. I don't mind hanging upside down for a few minutes a day or a week. It's less expensive than going to get stretched on a table. Does inversion help anyone else.?

Could the nausea be caused by the condition of my spine effecting the nerves to my stomach?

Could the nausea be caused by the condition of my spine effecting the nerves to my stomach?

I usually don't pay much attention to physical discomfort bit yesterday it got so bad I took myself to the ER. I was having severely nausea and loan up the sides of my back. Blood tests and a cat scan showed nothing wrong, in fact a couple of nurses commented on how they rarely see a healthier specemin of my age.

What role does orgasm play in stress reduction and/or pain relief?

What role does orgasm play in stress reduction and/or pain relief?

I've not seen this question asked. I recognize the challenges of ongoing pain, discomfort and backing away from physical contact and intimacy. What I've heard is most people don't want to be bothered, it's another task and/or imposition. What I know is it's difficult to nurture relationships when you're feeling miserable and you want to be left alone.
Physiologically/psychologically speaking, there is a pleasure zone that can lift us out of… read more

Weary about biologics

Weary about biologics

Hi there,

40 year old male diagnosed this year but likely have had it for 20 years.

2- regular gym, massage, stretching - this helps
3- no starch diet for 3 months (not sure yet if this is helping)

Doctors have all recommended I go straight to… read more
