A chiropractor's point of view on pillows and sleeping position
by Dr. Daniel Zagst
November 20, 2015
Back sleeper? Side sleeper? Stomach sleeper? All of the above? Humans can sleep in a wide variety of positions. Not one position is technically the "right" way to sleep, although there are strong arguments for some over others.
The most common sleeping positions are back, side, and stomach. There are some other contortionist positions but we will stick with these for now. With each position, the placement and type of pillow should differ. If you always sleep in the same position, you may want to try the others to see if it makes a change in your comfort level and quality of sleep.
Make 2017 the year to avoid toxins (good luck) and master your domain: Words on Wellness
by Dr. Daniel Neides
February 20, 2017
I am tired of all the nonsense we as American citizens are being fed while big business - and the government - continue to ignore the health and well-being of the fine people in this country.
I, like everyone else, took the advice of the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) - the government - and received a flu shot. I chose to receive the preservative free vaccine, thinking I did not want any thimerasol (i.e. mercury) that the "regular" flu vaccine contains. Makes sense, right? Why would any of us want to be injected with mercury if it can potentially cause harm? However, what I did not realize is that the preservative-free vaccine contains formaldehyde.
The Dangerous Toxin in Your Home: Triclosan
by Dr. Craig A. Maxwell
August 18, 2016
Do you slather on hand sanitizer and use antibacterial hand soap? If so, you could be setting yourself up for neurological and autoimmune disease.
If your New Year's Resolution was to quit smoking, lose weight, and start eating healthier; congratulations, you're well on your way to living a longer, healthier life. Unfortunately, even if you're eating the best diet and working out regularly, you could still be setting yourself up for serious disease from a dangerous toxin you willingly use each and every day. That toxin is called Triclosan and if you carry around a small bottle of antibacterial gel in your purse or glove compartment, you may be slathering it on each and every day. You'll want to check that anti-bacterial gel, and many other products in your home, to make sure they do not contain this toxic substance.
How to Get Rid of Vertigo
by Dr. Axe
January 18, 2016
Have you ever experienced vertigo? If so, you probably have wondered how to get rid of vertigo so it won't become a chronic problem. Try these six secrets.
Our ability to stay balanced is maintained by several systems, including: the sensorimotor control system (which controls our senses, such as our sight and hearing), the proprioception system (responsible for touch) and the vestibular system (helps us move without falling over). The inner ears obviously help us see, but they're also an important part of the vestibular system, which allows us to identify where we are in space.
"If in doubt, try nutrition first."
by Dr. Andrew Saul

"Most epileptics are magnesium deficient. I wish I had found this out 40 years ago. Now I can even drive a car and ride a bike. It is so wonderful not to have seizures anymore plus not have to depend on drugs all the time and of course be free of drugs.
Sarah and her fiancé Richard wanted to have children as soon as they were married. Sarah had just been diagnosed with epilepsy, however, and was offered Phenobarbital as therapy. She and Richard read up on the drug, and now knew, as did their doctor, that pregnancy while taking a barbiturate was not ideal. "So we want to look into other options," Sarah said to me in the office. "Could vitamins replace the drug?"
Save the Gallbladder - PURGE!
by Doug Heise, D.C.
July 22, 2017
Color is incomprehensible to the blind. Harmony is beyond the senses of the tone deaf. To the King, the voices of peasants are lost and unheard! So it is with the tragedy of the citizen of this advanced technological society.
Gallbladder dysfunction is one of the most common health problems encountered in chiropractic as well as medical offices today. Unfortunately, it is also one of the most misunderstood. More than 600,000 cholecystectomies are performed in this country alone every year, despite overwhelming evidence that most are unnecessary. Repeated warnings have been printed in medical journals against this practice, but to avail.

Perennial Vegetables: Years of Bounty
by Dawn Gifford
March 4, 2013
With the exception of asparagus, rhubarb and artichokes, most gardeners are unaware of the tasty, nutritious bounty that perennial vegetables can offer.
According to Perennial Vegetables by Eric Toensmeier, most North American gardening and farming traditions come from Europe, where there are very few perennial crops except fruits and nuts. Cold and temperate Eurasian agriculture centered around livestock, annual grains and legumes, and early European settlers to North America simply brought their seeds and their cultivation methods with them, including draft animals for plowing up the soil every year.
