Healthcare is Your Responsibility- May 2017

May 2017

Hi Everybody Dr. Norris here.

Often we want others to take responsibility for our medical decisions.  Some don't want to be bothered while others don't think they have time to be concerned about health care decisions.  It is common to procrastinate going to your general practitioner, dentist or chiropractor.  I've put off seeing my dentist for uh... a year now. So I understand when some patients wait until they are in "real pain" before call me for an appointment.  I once worked for an office that would call and charge people a fee when they missed an appointment.  I think we are all responsible for our own health care decisions; which brings me to my office policy regarding missed appointments. More on that in a moment…

People often ask me if I am related to the tough-guy actor Chuck Norris.  Chuck has become infamous because of internet websites dedicated to his rugged nature.  See below for a partial list of his superpowers.  Are we related... maybe? Well don't miss one of your appointments or I may have to call... Uncle Chuck.   
  • They once made a Chuck Norris toilet paper, but it wouldn't take crap from anybody. 
  • Chuck Norris has already been to Mars; that's why there are no signs of life there.
  • Chuck Norris is the reason why Waldo is in hiding. 
  • Chuck Norris has counted to infinity... twice! 
  • Chuck Norris can do a wheelie on a unicycle. 
  • The Grim Reaper quit his job when he found out he had to confront Chuck Norris. 
  • When Chuck Norris was born he drove his mom home from the hospital. 
  • Chuck Norris has a diary. It's called the Guinness Book of World Records. 
  • Chuck Norris can hear sign language. 
  • A cobra bit Chuck Norris in the leg. After five days of excruciating pain... the cobra finally died.
No matter how long it has been since I've seen you,
 I will still do my best to help you get out of pain.

“Because nobody has time for pain!”

Treatment for Hiccups

Most home remedies for hiccups are based on raising the levels of carbon dioxide in the blood, like holding your breath, slowly sipping water or breathing into a paper bag. They can work, but researchers don't really understand why.
