“George Clooney Has Back Pain.. Too”
A lecture demo by Dr.Ali AlAttar , On Tuesday January 24 2016 , 10-00 Am @ Bait Alsadu.
As Dr. Ali Al Attar says, Everything starts in the brain, your pain as well as your health. Aging.. is a big myth.. age is only a number.. aging is a perception. Your emotion, thoughts, beliefs and sprit will control your muscles, bones and joints, so carefully select what you store in your mind.
