New Studies Link Cell Phone Radiation with Cancer
by Charles Schmidt
April 3, 2018
Researchers call for greater caution, but skeptics say the evidence from rat studies is not convincing
Does cell phone radiation cause cancer? New studies show a correlation in lab rats, but the evidence may not resolve ongoing debates over causality or whether any effects arise in people. The ionizing radiation given off by sources such as x-ray machines and the sun boosts cancer risk by shredding molecules in the body. But the non-ionizing radio-frequency (RF) radiation that cell phones and other wireless devices emit has just one known biological effect: an ability to heat tissue by exciting its molecules.
Why Chiropractic Is Your Best Option for Pain
April 2, 2018
Pain is a major problem, but so is medication use to help relieve the pain. If you haven't realized by now that chiropractic care, not drugs, is your best option for pain, perhaps you'll be swayed by some recent research.
So, point #1: Opioids aren't your best option for pain. But neither are NSAIDs, at least when compared to chiropractic, according to a study that also appeared in the Journal of the American Medical Association. Chiropractic spinal manipulation reduced pain and improved function in back pain patients after six weeks of treatment, and results were similar to that achieved with NSAID use - but without the side effects and other risks associated with medication use (particularly use for more than 10 days at a time). So, point #2: NSAIDs aren't your best option, either.
Shining a Light on the Opioid Epidemic
by Dr. Peter Phillips
The quick fix a pill provides, in addition to an aging population that experiences more aches and pains than it once did, led to a rise in opioid use. When generic opioids hit the market, and the price began to drop, the prescriptions began to rise.
"Chiropractic treatments are gentle and effective and do not use drugs or surgery," Phillips said. "Decompression therapy is non-invasive. Exercising, stretching, and diet modification are all things that can help alleviate pain." The latest tool is the MLS (Multi-Wave Locked System) Therapy Laser, a device that was FDA cleared for use nine years ago. The first laser therapy was a breakthrough, giving health care practitioners another way to improve the quality of life for their patients. "In the past, you would work with other therapies to try to do this," Phillips said. "We would work with ice therapy or massage therapy. What we're finding is that through laser therapy, we can have a set treatment protocol that's shorter, and we are able to get people better faster.
Alternatives to Cymbalta
by Leaftv Editor
There are many herbal remedies that can be used as alternatives to the prescription medication Cymbalta. This drug is prescribed for several different reasons, including depression, anxiety disorder, pain from fibromyalgia and diabetic nerve pain.
The herb of choice for treating depression is St. John's Wort. This herb has been used extensively in Europe and has become very popular in the United States in recent decades as well. It is reported to have fewer known side effects than prescription and over-the-counter drugs used for depression. The compound hypericin is present in this herb and is said to be the substance that is responsible for depression relief in St. John's Wort.
Doctor Blows Whistle on Flu Shot: 'It's Designed to Spread Cancer'
March 8, 2018
Dr. John Bergman issues warning to the public of 'flu panic'. Dr. John Bergman says the flu vaccine is laced with cancer-causing ingredients.
A top doctor has gone on the record to blow the whistle in a video statement and reveal that flu vaccines have been laced with "cancer-causing ingredients." Dr. John Bergman has revealed the influenza vaccinations being used to combat the latest H3N2 strain, are virtually ineffective and being forced onto the public through fear tactics to spread cancer. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the current flu strain is the most severe to date, and leads to more extreme, and often fatal, symptoms.
Natural Prescriptions For Parkinson's Disease
by Bruce Scali
December 17, 2017
After 200 years of investigation, researchers and clinicians have identified neither the cause nor the cure for Parkinson's disease, the condition first described by James Parkinson in 1817.
Neurodegenerative symptoms such as tremor and a shuffling gait, also known as paralysis agitants, have been observed and recorded by physicians since ancient times. Much has been learned since about the characteristics of Parkinson's disease, but much remains unknown. Not only do the cause and cure of Parkinson's continue to elude us, but doctors still cannot identify those in early stages of the disease. Consequently, a definitive program for prevention remains uncertain.

Chiropractic Treatment for Scoliosis
September 14, 2017
Scoliosis is an intricate disease. Experts still don't know what causes 80% of scoliosis cases, and there is no cure. But there's still hope! There are proven methods to treat scoliosis and reduce its symptoms.
Traditional chiropractic treatment applies a general approach, similar to what the chiropractor would do for any other patient experiencing back problems. However, if the chiropractor is not practiced in scoliosis and familiar with its intricacies, traditional chiropractic treatment is unlikely to have much of an effect on the Cobb angle. This method is only recommended for patients over the age of 13 with very small Cobb angles of 20 degrees or less. Traditional treatment can be useful for relieving pain, but not for physically straightening the Cobb angle in scoliosis patients.
Portage doctor doesn't accept insurance, charges patients a monthly subscription fee for unlimited visits
by Giles Bruce
September 6, 2017
Dr. Timothy Ames had a traditional primary care practice for a quarter of a century, starting in 1987. He grew increasingly incensed by the bureaucratic obstacles being put in the way of doctors caring for patients.
So he went nontraditional. At his new practice, he doesn't accept insurance of any kind. He charges patients a monthly subscription fee for unlimited visits. He is available by phone, by text, after hours. He explained the difference between the two approaches:
