Which Of These Neuropathy Symptoms Do You Suffer From? If You Suffer From A Single One Of These Torturous Symptoms – Numbness, Tingling, Or Sharp Nerve Pain – THEN THE FACTS BELOW MAY BE THE MOST IMPORTANT YOU HAVE EVER READ IN YOUR LIFE! Neuropathy affects every part of your life -walking, sitting, and even sleeping.

Numerous studies have proven chiropractic's effectiveness in helping nerve conditions...

Maybe you've had multiple tests, only to find out no one has any idea what you have. Maybe you've even been put on a drug with heavy side effects.

“Manipulation [chiropractic adjustments], with or without exercise, improved symptoms more than medical care did after both 3 and 12 months.”– British Medical Journal

Do you have any of the following symptoms... • • • • •

Pins and needles feeling Numbness in the hands or feet Tingling or burning sensations Weakness in the arms or legs Sharp shooting or burning pains

If so you may have a condition called peripheral neuropathy. My name is Dr. Sarah Merrison-McEntire, owner of Carolina Chiropractic Plus. Our practice has been helping people with neuropathy and nerve problems for more than 13 years. More than 20 million Americans suffer from peripheral neuropathy, a problem caused by damage to the nerves that supply your arms and legs. This painful condition interferes with your body's ability to transmit messages to your muscles, skin, joints, or internal organs. If ignored or mistreated, neuropathy can lead to irreversible health conditions. Why not get help by those trained to correct the major cause of peripheral neuropathy? Data from the National Board of Chiropractic Examiners' Job Analysis of Chiropractic lists arm and leg neuropathy as the second most common nerve problem treated by chiropractors. Often neuropathy is caused by a degenerating spine pressing on the nerve roots. This can happen in any of the vertebral joints from the neck all the way down to the tail bone. The Single Most Important Solution To Your Neuropathy By using gentle techniques, I'm able to release the pressure that has built up on the nerve. This allows the nerve to heal and the symptoms to go away.

Patients showed an 85.5% resolution of the nerve symptoms after only 9 chiropractic treatments. - Journal of Chiropractic Medicine 2008 With chiropractic care, patients had “significant improvement in perceived comfort and function, nerve conduction and finger sensation overall.” – JMPT 1998 “Significant increase in grip strength and normalization of motor and sensory latencies were noted. Orthopedic tests were negative. Symptoms dissipated.” – JMPT 1994 What these studies mean is that with chiropractic care, you could soon be enjoying life...without those aggravating nerve problems. How To Find Out If This Will Work For You It’s time for you to find out if chiropractic will be your neuropathy solution. For 10 days only, $25 will get you all the services we normally charge new patients $250 for! What does this offer include? Everything. Take a look at what you will receive: • An in-depth consultation about your health and well-being where I will listen…really listen…to the details of your case. •

A complete neuromuscular examination.

• A full set of specialized x-rays to determine if a spinal problem is contributing to your pain or symptoms… (NOTE: These would normally cost $125.00). • A thorough analysis of your exam and x-ray findings so we can start mapping out your plan to being pain free. You’ll get to see everything first hand and find out if this amazing treatment will be your pain solution, like it has been for so many other patients.

The appointment will not take long at all. And you won't be sitting in a waiting room all day either. Here's What To Do Now The offer is only good until June 10th. Call today 828-245-0202 and we can get you scheduled for your consultation, exam and x-rays as soon as there’s an opening. Our office is located in downtown Forest City, at 152 West Main Street, two doors down from The Ray Rice Martial Arts Center. When you call, tell the receptionist you’d like to come in for the Neuropathy Evaluation so she can get you on the schedule and make sure you receive proper credit for this special offer. Sincerely, Sarah Merrison-McEntire, D.C. P.S. At our office, we have specialized treatment programs for treating patients who suffer from neuropathy. Why suffer with years of misery? That’s no way to live, not when there could be an easy solution to your problem Don't live in pain when we may have the solution you've been looking for all along. Call today...828-245-0202

If you decide to purchase additional treatment you have the legal right to change your mind within 3 days and receive a refund. Federal recipients are excluded from this offer

Prescription pills serious threat to our community Over the course of nine months the Polk County Sheriff ’s Office, in coordination with a handful of other surrounding agencies, has purchased 2,000 pills in an undercover operation aimed at shutting down dealers of prescription drugs. We say well done. While the selling of prescription drugs may seem insignificant to some in the grand scheme of crime, it is not. Sheriff Hill said we’re talking about trafficking level cases – large quantities of prescription pills. The department has seized painkillers such as oxycodone, oxycontin, Percocet, Lortab, hydrocodone and Xanax. And, as is apparent with several of the arrests already made, the individuals involved are being charged with other crimes, such as possession of marijuana and cocaine and with cases of child abuse. Hill reminded us that these drug dealers fall in all age categories, ethnicities, social statuses and occupations. So do the people buying them. Prescription medications pose a colossal threat to our community. They’re easily accessible and often highly addictive. We’ve already seen at least one case this year in which thieves broke into an older gentleman’s home, snatching up prescription pills from the medicine cabinet. It is essential our local sheriff ’s office work with surrounding law enforcement agencies and the N.C. State Bureau of Investigation (SBI) to catch these criminals. We’re proud to see such a coordinated effort and hope Operation Pill Sweep leaves us with a safer community.

‘Landscapes of the Carolinas’ opens June 4 at Skyuka Fine Art “Landscapes of the Carolinas” will be Skyuka Fine Art’s first exhibit dedicated to the art of the landscape. Show dates are June 4 - July 23, with the opening reception on Saturday, June 4 from 5 – 8 p.m. during the Tryon Gallery Trot. Eight galleries in downtown Tryon will participate by either hosting opening receptions for new exhibits, or hosting late hours. Future dates for other Gallery Trots are already scheduled for July 30, Aug. 20 and Oct. 8. Much of the artwork featured in the show will be of the Tryon area, as well as surrounding mountainous regions such as Asheville, Marshall, the South Carolina Upstate and Cashiers. Charming downtown streetscapes, vast rolling eques-

trian hills and rich farmland, all with a Blue Ridge backdrop, depict what locals call home. Not to be left out, the coast and low country will make their marks as well with Hilton Head, Charleston and Beaufort landscapes. William (Bill) and Anne Jameson from Saluda have a number of new landscapes to add to the show. Numerous low country oil sketches will be available as well as Bill’s introspective landscapes embodying the full range of local color and timeless contrasts he is famous for. Richard Christian Nelson, known for his expressive plein

air landscapes, will have fresh work from his recent workshops and travels. New to Skyuka Fine Art, Bill Lovett (a former advertising executive) lives for color. His landscapes translate color and light onto canvas in his characteristically brightly colored palette. L i n d a Cheek has been working in a new direction these days; producing numerous 6 x 8 oil paintings. She has created many landscapes in a very small scale. Bold strokes and a high contrast palette are always telltale signs of a Cheek painting. Richard Oversmith’s travels have produced many Carolina

Market Place

landscapes. Some oil sketches on panels will be on display by Oversmith, in addition to his larger framed paintings. Notable artists of the past from the collection of Tryon art dealer Nowell Guffey will also be featured. The artists selected have significant relationships with the locale. A wide variety of mediums round off the show, including pen and ink, watercolor and gouache. Skyuka Fine Art is located at 133 North Trade Street in Tryon. Hours are 10 a.m. – 5 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday, and by appointment. Call Kim at 828-817-3783, or email info@skyukafineart. com for more information. – article submitted by Kim Nelson

Family roots draw Pearsons to Italy

In my latest feature, we are to visit Italy again. A knitter, two painters, a horsewoman and a wine expert have all talked about this glorious place, and I believe a pattern is emerging. Italy may be the favorite world destination of Polk County residents. This time, we see it from the worldview of a photographer, taking a journey to visit her family roots. Who: Elaine Pearsons, Columbus. Pearsons is originally from New England, but has been in the Polk County area since 1986. She is a professional photographer, who brings colors to life, and teaches interesting techniques for embellishing photos in a new way.

Most people have their own vineyards, and make and often sell their own wine. Small or large, there are many more vineyards than in the United States. Pearsons is in love with Italian food as served in Italy. She said she still dreams of the tortellini she had in a village restaurant, and how the “welcome home” meals cooked by her great uncle’s family made dinner a whole new affair. Pearsons only warns that pasta is a third course, and it is so good, that one must remember to save room for the other courses, which can be up to seven in an everyday meal! She was touched by the people she met – both strangers and family members – and remarks that “la dolce vita” can mean “sweet,” in the way of kind and warm. Now, she emails photos back and forth with her English-speaking nephew, of two lives in two respectively beautiful places. How sweet life can be!
