Laugh Your Way To A Better Marriage

Posted by Dr. Gray on Wednesday, October 15, 2008

As you’ve read here, and I’ve told many of my patients, one of the three major causes of subluxation or dysfunction in the body is emotional stress. In marriage, we all know that stress is a regular event. Whether it’s with each other, with the kids, with finances, with work, etc., husbands and wives have a tendency to rely on each other for the alleviation of stress.

Unfortunately, when spouses try to communicate with each other, they often don’t know, realize, or acknowledge the most significant barrier to men and women arriving at a successful conclusion… Men and women speak different languages!

Let’s face it, folks. Men speak male, and women speak female. Although there are some similar words in the two languages, they often have different meanings. The result, of course, are misunderstandings that are blamed on one another… when neither is actually at fault. So… you may start a conversation with your spouse in an attempt to alleviate one stressful situation, and end up adding another stressful situation.

This added stress, therefore, can then lead to physical manifestations… aches, pains, headaches, etc.

Mark Gungor is a christian comedian who released a video series called “Laugh Your Way To A Better Marriage.” The following clip is a hilarious look at the difference between men’s brains and women’s brains. Enjoy!

A Short History of Medicine

Posted by Dr. Gray on Monday, July 28, 2008

Doctor, I have an ear ache.

2000 B.C. – “Here, eat this root.”
1000 B.C. – “That root is heathen, say this prayer.”
1850 A.D. – “That prayer is superstition, drink this potion.”
1940 A.D. – “That potion is snake oil, swallow this pill.”
1985 A.D. – “That pill is ineffective, take this antibiotic.”
2000 A.D. – “That antibiotic is artificial. Here, eat this root!”
