Seed Service Samples

Below, you’ll find a pair of Seed Service samples.

As a Basic Seed Service subscriber, you receive a study synopsis, like the one below. From this synopsis, you can create your own article, with no co-author mention required; the authorship is all yours.

As a Premium Seed Service subscriber, you receive a full article, geared toward your patrons and potential clients. It runs at least 235 words in length, and it features an F-K score of no more than 9.0, meaning it can be read by your average 16-year-old.

You can post your respective article “as is.” Or, you can tailor it to suit your own content and marketing needs. You’re free to place added content or promotional items into the piece. (Note: while you can add your own content to the article, you may not parse the original piece in any way.) You can then place the augmented article into your blog, your newsletter, on social media, or use it as a guest post, in an info-product, or even as in-office literature.

One caveat with the Premium Seed Service: You must always give credit in the byline to the author that pens the original piece. So, whether you reshape it or just use it “as is,” make sure to attribute credit to the original author—even if you, too, will receive credit in the byline for penning a portion of the article.

Example: By John Smith and Nelson Pahl

Special Note

Please note that we run several weekly Seed Services: chiropractic care, acupuncture, and massage. The following examples serve as only a general sample of our Seed Service work.

Also note: each Premium Seed Service article comes with a high-quality, professional “feature image” included. The Basic Seed Service synopses come with no such images.

Acupuncture Relieves Headaches After TBI

Researchers from the Samueli Institute set out to investigate the role, if any, acupuncture can play in treating headaches associated with traumatic brain injuries (TBI). Employing a three-arm, parallel, randomized exploratory study, researchers observed previously deployed service members, aged 18-69, suffering from mild-to-moderate traumatic brain injuries (TBI) and headaches. The participants were split into two groups: one received usual care (UC) plus traditional Chinese acupuncture (TCA), the other received UC and auricular acupuncture (AA). They measured primary outcome via the Headache Impact Test (HIT). The Pittsburgh Sleep Quality Index, Post-Traumatic Stress Checklist, Beck Depression Inventory, Strait-Trait Anxiety Inventory, and Medical Outcome Study Quality of Life (QoL) were among those used to measure secondary outcomes.

The research team found that, in those service members suffering from TBI-related headaches, TCA and AA improved quality of life (QoL) more than did UC.

In summation: According to this study, acupuncture is a viable tool for treating headaches in those suffering from TBI.

Effect of Two SMT in One Client Session

Researchers from the Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College set out to analyze the pain pressure sensitivity of neurosegmentally–linked myofascial tissue after two consecutive spinal manipulation (SMT) interventions within the same client session. They observed 26 individuals, split into two groups: a control group, which received one authentic SMT then a “placebo” SMT intervention to C5-C6 segment; and the test group, which received two authentic SMT interventions to C5-C6, 30 minutes apart. Researchers measured pain pressure threshold (PPT) pre-SMT1 then 5, 10, 15, 20, and 25 minutes after treatment’s conclusion. Researchers found that participants receiving the repeated SMT intervention reported a significant increase in PPT.

In summation: According to this study, multiple SMT interventions during the same visit further benefit the client.

Manual vs. Mechanical: Which is Better?

By Nelson Pahl (and potential co-author)

A passionate debate has arisen in the chiropractic community: Which is the better alignment method, manual or mechanical?

Truth be told, certain chiropractors still practice one way or the other.

Now, perhaps you, yourself, have a preferred method. I know my chiropractor boasts clients that insist the mechanical method be used for the entire adjustment.

I, myself, am a manual guy. I both love and appreciate the sheer artistry exhibited by a gifted and meticulous chiropractor.

And I’m fortunate enough to have one of those guys in my life.

But what does empirical research say about the matter?

Manual vs. Mechanical: What Science Says

Well, a recent study indeed sheds light on the topic.

Swiss researchers set out to investigate whether or not manual alignment is more effective than mechanical. In the randomized, controlled trial, those researchers observed 54 patients. They followed the group over a six-month period. Each participant suffered from acute or chronic neck pain. He/she received three treatments, with four days between each session.

The researchers used a variety of measuring tools. These included industry standards like the Visual Analogue Pain Rating Scale (VAS) and the European Quality of Life-5 Dimension surveys (EQ-5D).

The Swiss team found that both methods are effective, in equal measure.

The ongoing study appears in the peer-reviewed journal Trials.

In Summary

So, what does all this mean to you?

Yes, you may prefer, say, manual over mechanical adjustment. However, this study concludes that citing your preferred method as “better” is probably not wise. 🙂

It also finds that you can trust both methods for your chiropractic needs.

Acupuncture Improves Female Sexual Dysfunction

By Aimee Hughes, N.D. (and potential co-author)

Have you lost interest in sex?

Maybe that youthful, eternal lovin’ simmer has vanished, cast out to sea…

If so, you’re not alone—especially if you’re a woman approaching menopause. Which, for most of us, happens in our mid to late-40’s.

When your sexual stoicism causes you subtle (or raging!) feelings of malaise, you might be experiencing what’s referred to as hypoactive sexual desire disorder (HSDD).

Hypoactive Sexual Desire Disorder (HSDD)

Defined as a chronic disinterest in sex, HSDD can wreak havoc in your marriage or love life—not too mention your identity as a divinely feminine, sexual creature. You know, the person once turned on by life but now struggling to get through the day?

Knowing that HSDD affects 43% of us on the verge of menopause, researchers set out to explore acupuncture’s impact on the disorder. The prospective pilot study, published in the journal Sexual Medicine, followed 13 premenopausal women previously diagnosed with HSDD. Each received 25-minute, bi-weekly acupuncture treatments. Participants received the treatment for five weeks.

And, guess what?

Acupuncture Improves Female Sexual Dysfunction

After the five weeks, participants displayed significantly healthier sexual function. The element of desire saw the biggest boost. Participants reported no adverse effects.

Exciting news, wouldn’t you say?

Acupuncture is a tried and true healing practice, deeply rooted in the ancient tradition of Chinese medicine. And this study further substantiates its power to heal.

In Conclusion

Therefore, if you’re one of the many women that sense your libido could use a boost…and if you’re living amid these precious years of wisdom and maturation associated with menopause…

Do consider treating yourself to acupuncture. Be patient, and give it some time. Before long, you’ll most likely find yourself, once again, open, sensual…

And ready to receive all the joys of sexual pleasure and union.
