Swine Flu, Schim schflu, part deux

Swine flu, part deux.
Like the proverbial bad penny, Swine flu, or H1N1 just won’t seem to go away. Let me re-phrase, the media’s obsession and government’s over-reaction with the swine flu won’t go away. I can understand the media, it’s all about selling more papers (figuratively speaking, no one reads newspapers anymore). Fear mongering equals high ratings. The government? Who knows, maybe they’re trying to divert us away from the fact that they’re hiding the bodies of little green men shot down over New Mexico.

A while back I talked a little about the swine flu; and the fact that it’s not Ebola or Hanta, it’s the sniffling, sneezing, coughing, aching, fever flu, with a cool new name; there’s some 16,000 known variants of influenza. Now, I’m not saying let’s just ignore it and hope it goes away, I’m just saying let’s get a little perspective. At last count about 109 Americans have died from the swine flu this year; 30,000 have been killed by complications from taking Tylenol in the same time period.
As Ben and I have both said, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. And I’m not talking about a vaccine, that’s being pro-active, and a whole host of other issues. Over the past 30something years, I’ve eaten tons of watermelons, seeds and all; and have yet had a vine grow out my ear (thanks Uncle Mike for scaring the bejesus out of me). What I’m saying is, just because you plant a seed, doesn’t mean a plant will grow. The environment has to be just right.
So how do we create a flu-unfriendly environment? #1Vitamin D. Vitamin C is to Marsh Brady what Vitamin D is to Jan Brady. We all know how great C is, but no one ever talks about D. Ever notice how fewer people are sick in the Summer? It’s because the direct rays of the sun create Vit D in our body. Once the equinox rolls through and takes away our direct UV light, we no longer make Vit D; quite possibly the most important vitamin involved in boosting our immune system. #2 Proteolytic enzymes. All disease is manifested via the prostaglandin E2 pathway. Enzymes such as bioflavanoids, ginger, turmeric (mustard), paipan (pineapple), NAC and a long list of others that are hard to say and spell, act on said pathway stopping the tissue damage and thus “dis-ease” of disease. #3 Me. As we go through our daily lives, life inflicts stress upon our bodies. This stress causes our joints to stop working, which causes immobilization degeneration leading to a chemical reaction the body mal-affecting the immune system. Regular chiropractic care reverses this boosting your immunity and resistance while improving your function and vitality.


I have been having severe pain since 2014. I’ve had a full battery of x-rays/MRI done to diagnose my condition [as] severe arthritis. After I was prescribed an injection that I was told would take care of everything, the pain was back, worse than before. Dr. Lee reviewed my x-rays and MRI and set up a treatment plan... After the 1st visit my pain has decreased. I can already feel a big difference.

Before coming to Dr. Lee, my ankle pain would wake me up during the night because of its severity. Dr. Lee has helped alleviate the pain in my ankle. By performing specific exercises twice per week, the pain is non-existent!

I have been a patient of Dr.Lee's for about 10 months now. As a 22 year old, I have been suffering from back pain since I was about 13 years old. The pain increased a few years ago and despite physical therapy performed at other facilities, and pain medications from the doctor I was unable to control the level of discomfort. I found Dr. Lee and have been extremely happy with my results.

I came to Dr. Lee with several aches and pains. I was nervous about receiving chiropractic treatment but Dr. Lee eased my concerns by thoroughly making sure that I was a safe candidate for adjustments... After regular adjustments and Physical Therapy, my knee pain is gone, my elbow pain is gone, my ankle and wrist are improving AND I’m reducing the migraines I used to get too!

I began seeing Dr. Lee after noticing severe tenderness and pain in my left hip region... I was lucky to find Dr. Lee when I did, not only did he help me discover that the pain in my hip was actually related to a mass growing uncontrollably but he also gave me the comfort I’d been searching for with chiropractic. I’d recommend Dr. Lee to anyone who wants to be pain-free!

I have had lower back problems for about 35 years. As I aged, they were getting worse. I also noticed I was over weight. I came to Susquehanna Spine & Rehab because Dr. Lee could address both issues as part of a unified plan. The diet regimen, chiropractic, and personalized exercises worked!

Ever since I was a kid, I’ve had pain in my neck and shoulders... Now that I’m an adult, my pain continues, but Dr. Lee is helping me a lot. I have an appointment twice a week, and I can definitely tell a difference. I use pain management along with the tens unit and physical therapy. All three of these services are working great and I’m definitely feeling better.

I have had back problems for years. I have been to other chiropractors I have even gone to medical doctors no one has been able to make it feel any better. Then I found Dr. Lee I have finally found relief. I am feeling so much better after starting care at Susquehanna Spine & Rehab.

I began seeing Dr. Lee because of a shooting pain I developed in my left heel... After a brief examination, Dr. Lee explained to me that my pain was being caused by Plantar Fasciitis... Shortly after Dr. Lee began treating my heel, I noticed that I was experiencing less and less discomfort. In a few short weeks, I was able to continue my exercise routine and enjoy my daily activities pain-free!

When I came to Susquehanna Spine & Rehab I was very skeptical. After only 2 weeks at Susquehanna Spine and Rehab the severe pain in my neck, shoulder and arm had greatly improved … NO MORE PAIN! I can now sleep through the night without waking up in pain! THANK YOU SUSQUEHANNA SPINE & REHAB!!!

My daughter started falling up the stairs at school and having severe knee pain for no apparent reason... Dr. Lee did a thorough exam and walked us through his entire treatment plan. Every appointment was made at a time convenient to my schedule. Heather has made wonderful progress and is now pain-free. Dr. Lee was always available for questions and kept me well informed of her progress.
