My Brother Has Spinal Stenosis

Sad to say but my brother just found out he has a spinal stenosis.  He's suffering and will continue getting treatments.

The narcotics help a little but he still finds it hard to move.  He told me he lost his balance and almost fell out his window.  Grabbing on to the bureau saved him.

This is just in time for Christmas! I hope and pray he will be better soon.


  1. Sorry to hear about your brother, but glad to hear they've put a name to what he has and can now move forward with treatment and care.

    1. He goes for treatment tomorrow morning. It will take about 2 hours

  2. Sending best wishes to your brother! Sorry to hear he is in so much pain. That's a real bummer, especially right before Christmas.

  3. Your brother must be terrified at his prospects. I wish peace and no pain for him. Please keep us informed about him. I know it is scary for you too. Please breathe deeply and try not to worry too much.

  4. I'm sorry to hear that. I hope he does feel better soon, too.

  5. I am so sorry to hear this, John. It is a very difficult time, too, right before Christmas. I hope he won't be in too much pain.

  6. My brother had a severe Herniated disc when he was in the Army. He couldn't stand for a long time. He eventually got better, but it sounded so painful. I hope your brother gets better.

  7. I wish your brother well. Apparently it's very painful indeed. Let's hope it soon improves for the better..

  8. Recently, a business associate shared with me an intriguing story about someone with back pain...

    Michelle Onoff is a successful yoga instructor. Yet for some reason, she suffered with lower back pain.

    As a chiropractor, and someone in the healthcare field, I was fascinated by this.

    I don't know about you, but I was under the impression that yoga instructors, given their active, stretch-filled, muscle-focused, posture-perfect profession and lifestyle, would be the LAST PEOPLE ON EARTH to experience back pain.

    Actually, I was kind of shocked.

    If a health-minded yoga instructor can be dealt a crippling back pain blow, what does this say about the rest of us?

    Here's Michelle story in her own words. I think it'll inspire hope if you're suffering...

    "I was feeling very weak in my core area. And I was having some radiating pain in my lower back.

    And I was going to the doctors, and they were telling me things like you need to have disc replacement.

    You need to have all these surgeries...

    You need to be on these pain medications;

    And they wanted to put me through a lot of surgical procedures...

    I didn’t want to do ANY of that. But the pain was so bad... I needed some relief.

    So I went to two neurosurgeons and I went to a back pain specialist...

    The surgeons wanted to operate on me in different places...

    … and the back pain specialist wanted to do various procedures, including implanting something permanent in my spine.

    I’ve had four procedures that involved needles in my spine, epidurals in my spine and that only gave me a little bit of temporary relief for a couple days.

    But it did not cure or really help anything.

    It just put a band-aid on a pain for couple of days and that was it.

    After my first session of Back Pain Relief4Life, I felt an opening in my back that I haven’t felt in a long time.

    I felt stronger to my core and I felt that that radiating burning heat pain that I was feeling, seem to dissipate a little bit.

    It seemed to just open up my back in general.

    And then after my second session today, I noticed EVEN MORE the stretch in my lower back and more strengthening in muscles that had been weak that I think might help support my lower back.

    I was VERY SKEPTICAL about doing Back Pain Relief4Life. Because, as I am a yoga instructor, I feel very knowledgeable in anatomy. And how to help people that come to me in pain.

    But I was not aware of certain muscles that I was not using in the body that might help my lower back."

    Here's the back pain program she's referring to:

    I share this with you today because if you suffer from back pain (like 3/4 of the population), I'm told this pain relief program WORKS WONDERS.

    People, in as little as 16 minutes, have experienced nothing less than total relief. Do nothing more than a specific sequence of 8 simple, pain-relieving movements.

    Sounds incredible, but yet Michelle is a prime example.

    See for yourself. Especially if you're being told surgery, needles and medication are in your immediate future.

    You've got nothing to lose.

    PS: My personal takeaway? Michelle was humble to admit yoga wasn't working for her.

    To me? That takes guts.

    She was also smart enough to stay away from drugs and surgery when there were other more natural options.

    But sometimes, one gets to the point where you'll try ANYTHING to get even a little bit of relief. If you're at that point, I encourage you to check out:
