Neck Pain and C5

Neck Pain at C5

Neck Pain at C5

Recently a woman asked about a pain in the neck, shoulder and radiating down the arm. I referred her to a neck pain article I wrote a couple of years ago. She took the advice to heart, stopped eating sugar and a few weeks later she was mostly fine. Still a little twinge from time to time, but a lot better.

In the video on C5 neck pain I talk about Vagus nerve that runs from the back of the brain along side the spine to the fifth cervical. At that point it branches out with nerves that reach into a lot of different systems throughout the body. Many of them carry information about sugar and how to deal with it.

Dealing with sugar is difficult for the body because it evolved for millions of years without it — ground up grains count as sugar in this case as they break down into sugar very quickly. It has only been a few thousand years that we have had access to processed foods out of millions of years of evolution.

Side Bar:
Did you know that when an archaeologist finds the remains of an ancient human that they can determine if they were hunter gathers or farmers just by looking at the holes in their teeth? The hunters had great teeth while the grain eaters had cavities. They tended to osteoporosis as well.

Our bodies evolved eating mostly meat. This has been proven. About 90 percent in fact.

Look in your local supper market. 80 to 90 percent of what you see is processed foods. This is how we eat today.

Is it any wonder that diseases that were rare in history are major epidemics today?

Back to the Neck Pain
So, all this weird information is coming into the brain through Vagus nerve. Thousands of nerves into one big one. Just like a freeway during rush hour, a jam up occurs. This causes a tension in the local muscles (actually, a little more goes on, just trying to keep it simple) which pulls C5 out of alignment.

Just a Little Sugar?
My new friend recently had a “couple bites of ice cream.” The next day her neck and shoulder pain was back like before. She wondered if it could be psychological. Sorry, I’ve seen it too many times, experienced it too.

Biochemistry Tells All
As I’ve said before, the biochemistry of most major illnesses can be traced right back to adrenal fatigue. Stress is the real culprit, but sugar stress is a really big one that we can eliminate. C5 neck pain can become major too, a very common area for spinal fusion surgery.

Meet the Author


Hello and welcome to my blog! There are several reasons I decided to start writing a blog on natural self-healing. The main thing I want to do is to share information on health and healing so that people can take action to heal themselves using natural techniques. I have met so many people who couldn't afford natural health care. They may have had health insurance, but they didn't trust that model. Many people want to know how to be healthy naturally. They want to know what really works and what doesn't. They want to be health conscious and often fail because of poor information, lack of knowledge, bad science and other factors. This blog is intended to help demystify the body and its various functions and to help people understand what is really needed to obtain optimum health. One of the great things about knowledge of the body is that once you know and understand how it works it becomes easy to know what the right things to do for it. And, it is much easier to do the right things when the consequences of the wrong things are fully understood. To do this I will be drawing from the knowledge of many people that I have learned from. I will talk about biochemistry relating that to what is needed to obtain optimum health. There will be information about the physical structure of the body and how to keep that aligned and functioning well. A major part of yoga has to do with health, so information about yogic techniques will be included. Mental and emotional health are important for the health of the body/mind, so articles about these topics will be included. And, there will be an occasional article about me and what I am up to. Hopefully I can relate that back to some health issue as well. The title Self Adjusting Technique comes from my technique for self-adjusting the structural part of the body, that is adjusting the body's various vertebrae and joints. For this blog it will include the idea of how to adjust health issues for yourself and those you care about. With a little knowledge there is a lot people can do to help heal themselves and stay healthy. I want to explain complex information about the body in a way that is easy to understand and useful. The comments section will help in that goal as people can ask for clarification if there is something they don't understand. And maybe we can get some helpful input from people smarter than me that will benefit us all. I hope you find information that can help you with your health issues. Kalidasa
