Cramping-up the NBA Finals

WHO SAW game 1 of the NBA Finals Thursday night as LeBron James was forced to miss the final minutes because of cramps as he was carried off the court?

How Applied Kinesiology can help:

When I caught “The King’s” post-game press conference, he mentioned his doctors “do not know” why he endured cramps as he was put on an IV in the locker room. This tells me that his problem is of a functional nature; not pathological one (In other words, it is not a disease; otherwise his excellent doctors would have found the problem and would be best suited to correct it). As I listened to greatest basketball player in the game explain why this periodically happens to him, I was struck to hear him claim, “playoff sweat is different from regular season sweat…” Well, he is right! The stress levels are very different, therefore you can lose more sodium through your sweat and become more prone to “cramp-up.”

The stress glands (adrenal glands) secrete a hormone called “aldosterone” and when the adrenals are fatigued they may not secrete enough aldosterone—so you lose sodium and suffer intense cramps (along with other symptoms such as fatigue, dizziness, light sensitivity, brain fog and more.)

The supraneal, or adrenal, glands are a pair of glands that secrete hormones directly into the bloodstream.

JUST LIKE LEBRON, many people need physical treatment to their adrenal glands.

This includes:

Chiropractic adjustments, acupuncture, deep percussion and nutrition such as Vitamin C, B vitamins.

Plus natural remedies such as:

Licorice root, cordyceps, rhodiola and/or withania.

There are standard functional tests for the adrenal glands that any doctor can do. Hopefully, Mr. James and others will get these tests done and receive treatment from a Professional Applied Kinesiologist who will help them to perform at their absolute best and be prepared to deal with all the stresses life has to offer.

 

Be well,
