I thought that the vast majority of bromine came from sea water (and then was dangerously engineered to unnatural forms).
Yes, I know that i need to do exercises - but there is a catch-22 in play. I am in so much pain and so sleep deprived (sleep, what is that?) that it is hard to do any exercises. And I have compounded the problem by being a world-class procrastinator. I have a very good quality Marcy inversion chair kit. I have had it for over two years. It is still unassembled and now, besides being a rather complicated two-person job to assemble it, my back is so farkled that it will be difficult for me to assemble.
Always before, a bit of exercise, time, walking and using the Back2Life machine I bought a couple of years ago eventually ended up making my back manageable. And then I would slack off and overdo lifting heavy objects or go banging around in a four-wheeler and the problem would return. This last time I must have really screwed the pooch, because it does not appear to be getting any better. I cannot even take a 30 minute car ride without intense pain. My legs and especially my feet and ankles are very painful as well as partially numb and tingling. It is like I need to get in shape in order to be able to do the things I need to do to get in shape. Sigh . . . .
Someone really needs to kick my butt!
BTW, I do watch having too much heat. More often I use ice-packs, as per the instructions of the chiro that fixed me up a couple of years ago. I may end up having to go back to a chiro who has the wonderful DC9000 spinal decompression machine. That and electrical stimulation worked wonders eventually - but that entails a long car ride plus about $100 per visit.
