Dr. Joel Franck – Neurosurgeon – Diagnosis and Surgical Treatment For Migraines

06 Jul

Dr. Joel Franck has been extremely successful in helping patients who suffer from migraines, or have experienced a trauma to the head or neck.

The techniques and tests used by Dr. Franck are state of the art.

If you have been involved in an automobile accident, a sports related injury or are suffering from whiplash, you owe it to yourself to read what Dr. Franck has published. He states:

“Numerous post-traumatic whiplash migraine headache patients remain unsuccessfully treated, with chronic pain, disability, and huge medical expenses.

Anatomical correlation of this complex with C1-C2 lateral ligamentous instability and alar/transverse ligament injury is now possible using digital video- fluoroscopy (DMX) and positional MRI. Utilizing the STEALTHSTATION and O- Arm, we afford these patients a unique methodology of C1-C2 stabilization.”

Dr. Joel Franck NeurosurgeonI have personally received treatment from Dr. Franck and can tell you first hand that he is an amazing neurosurgeon.

After experiencing a serious fall from a horse, my world was turned upside down.

Even Mayo Clinic was unable to offer a solution.  They said, “I see this all the time but don’t know what it is”.

It wasn’t until I was put in touch with Dr. Franck that I was offered some hope.  He requires his patients to have a DMX (Digital Motion Xray) and an upright MRI before he will see them.  At the time of writing this post, most physicians haven’t even heard of these tests.

To make a long story short, I had the surgery(fusion of C4-C7) that Dr. Franck recommended and my life has returned to normal.  I never thought that was going to be possible.  I am forever grateful!

Dr. Joel Franck Neurosurgeon Patents

Only a few of the patents displayed on his office wall.

Do yourself a favor and read his published paper.  I don’t know about you but I have never been in the presence of someone who has been responsible for at least a dozen patents.  This man is passionate about what he does and truly cares about helping his patients.

When you are sick it is difficult to be persistent enough to find an answer to your health concerns, but in my case, if I had not been persistent and found Dr. Franck, I would still be seriously disabled.

Read the rest of Dr. Franck’s report right here.

I pray that this article will help to bring someone closer to finding the answer they need to bring them back to good health.

You can also read about another success story right here.  and find out  more about Dr. Franck’s impressive credentials HERE.

All About Me And You – Maybe?

11 Jun

An interesting thought came to me this morning as I walked the dog.  Ever heard that phrase “it’s all about me”?

Every morning I see the “all about me” in action as I listen to my favorite podcast on the iPhone that I am holding in my hand.  The walk lasts approximately 25 minutes and so does the podcast.

It works perfect for me!

The difference between myself and many of the walkers who pass me is glaring. Yes, glaring.

Before we go any further I do want to say that my walk is important to me, (as it seems to be with others).  Since I am recovering from surgery it is a must do in order to maintain my health.

Walking has become a habit now and both the dog and I look forward to it. In fact, this walk has largely become “all about her”.

So here is what I am noticing. The determination, focus and energy that other walkers are putting into their morning workout is quite noticeable.

They are very deliberate about what they are doing. They don’t want anything to come in their way and cause them to deviate from their course.

I am saying all this to tell you what the glaring difference is between them and me. (Stay tuned for the awesome video at the end)

You see, I learned early on in my new habit of walking, that there is a distinct possibility of getting run over. The dog and I have had to hit the ditch more than once.

So here is the deal. The drivers are focused on getting to their destination and so are those who habitually walk or jog for their morning exercise.

All about me, walking with headhones

Listening, not watching

So here is the glaring difference. Many are wearing a headset that is attached to their ears, that affects their feet and their mind.

They are like purposeful zombies not wanting to communicate with anyone or interact with their environment.  Kinda gives the appearance of that “all about me” attitude.

What about the grandma standing on her lawn who smiles and just wants someone to say hello. How about the neighbor they are ignoring as they jog by intently focusing on their goal and their ear phones.

The dog and I on the other hand, are noticeably different. By the way, it doesn’t mean we are any better, just different.  The dog is wagging her tail and my iPhone is in my hand and I do not have headphones. I am able to listen and wave to my neighbor, or say high to grandma and for me, that is important!

This isn’t to say it is my way or the highway. I just couldn’t help but notice the differences.

I am sure the headset gang have accomplished their purpose at the end of their walk, but in the big scheme of things, it appears to be “all about them”, at least at that moment and during their “headset time”.

Have we become a “Me Only” society? Don’t bother me, don’t talk to me, don’t look at me, “just don’t” period.

How do we live our lives? Do we give off that “just don’t” impression, or do we live life in an approachable manner?

Would our neighbor feel they could approach us, or is life centered and focused on what we are doing?

Have you ever done all the listening in a conversation and the other person leaves thinking you are wonderful, but you hardly said a word?

Of course you are wonderful, because it was all about them and not you.

Our time is precious, once it is gone it never returns.

I feel we all need to be approachable in life. Colossians 4:5-6 reminds us to:

 5 Conduct yourselves with wisdom toward outsiders, making the most of the opportunity.

6 Let your speech always be with grace, as though seasoned with salt, so that you will know how you should respond to each person.

What are people learning from you – what are they learning from me?

In fact, the world could learn a lot from our dog. She is always happy. Someone even asked me if she wags her tail in her sleep. She is more than approachable, she wants to be approached and given attention, maybe like that grandma in her yard.  One thing is for sure, she doesn’t give off that “it’s all about me” attitude.

I made a cute 30 second video about her happiness. Enjoy it and “Be Happy”.

Happiness comes from within, flowing out of a personal relationship with the one who created us.

 

I would love to hear your thoughts and experience on the new head set age? Please comment below as I am sure others would love to hear what you have to share.

P.S. – if you are looking for a great morning devotional podcast, here is the link to what I listen to.  Hope you enjoy it as much as BJ and I do.

Have a great day as you make someone else’s day!

Our Dog Hates the Rain, Does Yours?

06 Jun

 I took this video on a day it was pouring and our dog hates the rain.

She usually brings my shoe for her daily walk, but today it was pouring and I knew she wouldn’t be interested in going.

I took a video of her reaction when she got to the door.  Does your dog do this?

Leave a comment below and let us know what your dog does?

God Cares, Even For Our Blue Bird

05 Jun

Although God cares for our “Blue Bird”,  He cares even more for “US”.

Every day as I go for a walk with the dog, I notice that our mailbox isn’t the only one that neighborhood birds are attracted to.

I often see birds with their beaks full of food or nesting material.  It just so happens that a beautiful blue bird has taken up residence in our mailbox.

Of course, we are particularly protective of our new resident.  When mail is put in we quickly remove it so the mother is not disturbed.

The funny thing is, no matter what happens, she is not discouraged.  Talk about a positive attitude. This blue bird always looks on the bright side of things and expects the mail to be removed, the eggs to hatch and the babies to grow up and leave their nest.  In fact, as I write this, she is on her second batch of beautiful little baby blue birds.blue bird nest in mailbox

It amazes me that even when birds have their nests removed or destroyed they still come back to the same place and try again.  I am sure you have seen this over and over again.

I shouldn’t be, but I continue to be in awe as God cares for us and directs our paths day by day. In fact this is what Matthew 6:25-26 says,

25 “For this reason I say to you, do not be worried about your life, as to what you will eat or what you will drink; nor for your body, as to what you will put on. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothing?

26 Look at the birds of the air, that they do not sow, nor reap nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not worth much more than they?”

Our God cares for the birds (and even our resident blue bird), so why wouldn’t He take care of us.

Funny thing is, we have a lovely picture of a blue bird that has followed us to every home we have lived in.  In fact, it is one of the first pictures we seem to put up.blue bird photo  These pretty little birds are not all that common and to have one build a nest right where we can watch it, makes me think of how God cares for us even in the most insignificant areas of our lives.

It could have been any bird that built that nest (in Florida they are everywhere), but God allowed that little blue bird to come to our mailbox.

Are you missing out on the little things that God is doing for you?

Living every day in awareness of His presence, helps us to look at life in a different way.

Yes, God cares for the birds and He knows what each bird is going through every day.

Isn’t that amazing?

He also knows what we are going throughout every day as well.  He protects us like we protect that little nest in our mailbox.

This doesn’t mean life is always rosy.  The birds in our mailboxes don’t seem to give up and neither should we. They often have to rebuild their nests several times and remain focused on their goal, to raise their young.

After all, if the birds of this world gave up, we wouldn’t have many birds flying around would we?

The next time life gets a bit rocky, think about all those birds out there that overcome life’s challenges and keep on keeping on.

Remember that God cares about the birds and He cares even more about “You”.

 

If you have overcome a challenge in your life, I would love to hear about it.  Please feel free to leave a comment and share it with the world.  You could be an encouragement to others.
