Heart Attacks: Test & Techniques (Diagrams) - Part 3
Sam Biser & Steven Lavitan, D.C.
Edited By Tom Harrelson (Revised 6/3/99)
Press HARD into the Bottom Section of the Left Thumb Pad area, that is labelled No. 1 (see Diagram below).
If it is TENDER or SORE, it means that there is probably some degree of Hardening of the Arteries. If, on the
other hand, there is TENDERNESS in Area No. 2, it is quite possible that the Heart Arteries are CLOGGING UP.
NOTE: If the Thumb on your Right Hand is also SORE, then you are probably NOT in DANGER of a Heart Attack.
The Left Thumb Pad is the FLESHY part of the Left Palm, where the Thumb joins the Hand. Grasp this portion
of the Palm (see Diagram below) and massage DEEPLY. Feel for a tender Spot or Knob underneath the Skin and RUB
the Spot, until it DISAPPEARS. Do NOT let PAIN DETER you! You can grasp the Hand as shown (see Diagram below),
or you can do it the OPPOSITE way, with the Thumb pressing in the Thumb Pad and the first Finger on the other side for
Sometimes when you massage the Left Palm, a PAIN appears in the Left Shoulder. Simply massage the Left Shoulder
Reflex Point about 1 1/2 inches above the Left Armpit (see Diagram below). You find a small Bony Lump In this area
under the Skin. Rub back and forth across the Top Half of this Spot, until the PAIN and SORENESS subside.
There are 3 Contact Points on the Body (see Diagram below) for this Chiropractic Procedure. You will NEED
someone else to do this Adjustment for you.
1 > The first Contact Point is about 1 inch underneath the Right Shoulder Blade, and 2 inches to the Right of the
Spine. Press LIGHTLY on the this Point for 10 to 20 seconds.
2 > Second, go down to the Middle of the Back and place your fingers about 2 inches to either of the Spine.
Press for another 10 to 20 seconds.
3 > Finally, REPEAT Step 2 at the next Contact Point, 2 inches to either side of the Spine. This Contact Point
is about 3 inches above the Rectum on a person, that is about 5' 8-10". It doesn't matter, if you are EXACTLY on
the RIGHT Points, you will probably get RESULTS as long as you are in CLOSE proximity to the Contact Point.
If you don't get RESULTS, then you could go to a Chiropractor, who is familiar with this particular Technique.
Have the person sit up in Bed and bring their Knees up to their Chest. Then place your Hands (see Diagram
below) or get hold of the Ribs from the Front Side of the person. Lift up the Rib Cage and give it a little TUG,
allowing PROPER Movement of the Ribs and Diaphragm. It RELEASES Muscle Tension in the area (also see
Lobelia Tincture), thus making it EASIER to breathe.
The Psoas Muscle (see Diagram below) starts at the Middle of the Back and runs down to the outside of the Thigh.
When the Psoas Muscle is in SPASM, it pulls down the Diaphragm and stretches the Ligaments surrounding the
Heart. This in turn pulls the Heart OUT-OF-SHAPE, causing the Valves to fit POORLY, which results in REDUCING
the EFFICIENCY of the Heart by about 50%. Relaxing the Psoas Muscle allows the Heart to RETURN to it's NORMAL
Shape and IMPROVES it's ability to pump Blood, according to Dr. Goldthwait of Harvard Medical School.
Place Hands (see Diagram below) and take hold of the Muscle, which is just underneath the Skin. Pull
one Hand to the Left and another to the Right to RELAX and STRETCH the Psoas Muscle. REPEAT this
Procedure on the other side of the Rib Cage.
