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.
Natural Remedies for High Blood Pressure
November 9, 2015
Elevated blood pressure is when the pressure on the arteries and blood vessels becomes too high and the arterial wall becomes distorted causing extra stress on the heart.
Long term-high blood pressure increases the risk of stroke, heart attack and diabetes. Frequently, there are no symptoms as blood pressure increases but warning signs for very high blood pressure can include chest pains, confusion, headaches, ear noise or buzzing, irregular heartbeat, nosebleeds, tiredness, or vision changes.
Energy-saving Bulb Dangers
by Lt. James L. Jester
April 10, 2014
By now, we have all seen them. We probably all have some in our homes. We most certainly have come into contact with them in the homes to which we respond. I am talking about energy-saving light bulbs.
They have many different names; compact fluorescent lamp (CFL), compact fluorescent light, and compact fluorescent tube, all describe a fluorescent lamp designed to replace an incandescent lamp. Compared to their incandescent brothers producing the same amount of visible light, CFLs consume less power (from 1/5 to 1/3) and have a longer service life (8 to 15 times).
Understanding Different Types of Magnesium
by Dr. Hrkal
February 9, 2017
Magnesium is one of those supplements that is very well known for its benefits throughout the natural health community. Magnesium is involved in over 300 biochemical processes in the body.
Numerous studies have demonstrated that magnesium supplementation and correction of deficiency has improved the aforementioned conditions. The problem with this essential mineral is that most people do not have sufficient levels for optimal health. A gradual depletion of nutrients from our soils has left many vegetables with lower levels of magnesium. Another factor that contributes to magnesium deficiency is that it often is depleted by various common conditions (i.e. IBS, Crohn's disease) and medications (i.e. proton pump inhibitors, diuretics).
Sports-Related Injuries in Children: What Parents Need to Know
by Claudia Anrig, DC
August 22, 2009
Almost 75 percent of families with children between the ages of 5 and 18 have at least one child who plays organized sports, either at school or on a community team.
This may seem like a good thing; after all, there's the benefits of learning to work together as a team, building camaraderie and consistent physical activity. However, parents need to pay special attention to the potential injuries that can occur at any time and proactively involve you, their chiropractor, as a part of their child's health care team.
Chiropractic Treatment of a Medical Specialist for Headaches
by Nancy Martin-Molina
July 4, 2014
It has been documented in a variety of studies that general health and habit factors may perpetuate the presence of myofascial / soft-tissue patterns of pain.
These include nutritional, metabolic, endocrine and psychological influences; but often some of the worst offenders are contributors such as sustained postural demands and poor body mechanism. Thus one goal of chiropractic treatment has been to increase movement in the joints and relax the pain-producing contributory muscles.
Michigan Association of Chiropractors Wins Historic Court Ruling
May 6, 2013
On April 18, 2013, in an historic victory for the chiropractic profession, the Michigan Court of Appeals ruled that MAC lawsuits against Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan (BCBSM) and Blue Care Network (BCN) could move forward as class-action lawsuits, meaning that damages could be awarded. Michigan Association of Chiropractors (MAC) President Dr. Dennis Whitford was elated with the victory, which he called a "tremendous win and important step on the road to overall victory" in the lawsuits.
Improving Posture: Create a 24/7 Bubble of Health & Function
by Tim Brown, DC
December 30, 2011
No matter how well we've mastered our skills as chiropractors and no matter what techniques we use in our practice, our patients' patterned postural habits between office visits can dictate the level of success of our treatment plans.
One of my main motivations to become a chiropractor was my experience as an often-injured athlete. Innately, I was never satisfied with the symptom-oriented treatment the traditional medical model offered. I felt that given the right guidance, I could be doing things outside of the treatment and training room that would help my body heal faster and perhaps more effectively prevent future injury.
When Pain Persists: Implications of a New Chronic Pain Report
by Anthony Rosner
October 15, 2011
For far too long there has been hand-wringing over the fact that a minimum of 116 million Americans experience chronic pain every year, with a national cost ranging between $560 billion and $635 billion.
This turns out to be a conservative estimate because children and military personnel have not been included. Prevention and pain treatment are thwarted by inadequate treatment, delay or outright inaccessibility of health care.
