Health and taxes: You may be able to deduct your chiropractic visits
by Kevin Ward
March 4, 2009
"Have you done your taxes yet?" Your co-worker is just making casual conversation over coffee and bagels, but the words send a wave of stress and maybe even panic through you.
Most people skip over medical expense deductions because the amount spent on medical expenses has to surpass a sizable minimum. It didn't look like I would make the minimum, but then Turbo Tax asked, "Did you visit a chiropractor or acupuncturist this year?" Did I?! You bet I did...
Scientists Have Figured Out How to Regenerate Teeth With Lasers.
by Kevin Loria
May 31, 2014
Using lasers to regenerate and grow body parts sounds like science fiction, but researchers have just demonstrated that it might be a tranformative tool in medicine-or at least dentistry-in the future.
A Harvard-led team just successfully used low-powered lasers to activate stem cells and stimulate the growth of teeth in rats and human dental tissue in a lab. The results were published today in the journal Science Translational Medicine. Stem cells exist throughout the body, and they fascinate scientists because they have the ability to become different types of cells - which means they have the potential to repair or replace damaged or worn out tissue. Figuring out new ways to make them useful has long been a goal of medical researchers.
REGION: Local parents increasingly skip children's immunizations
by Kevin Crowe and Roxanna Popescu
August 18, 2011
A growing number of California parents decided to skip some or all immunizations for their kindergartners in 2010 by signing personal-belief waivers.
Dana Tankell, a chiropractor in San Diego who has never vaccinated either of her school-aged daughters, was relieved to learn that more parents are opting out. Wooten said she is not surprised that the number of personal exemptions is growing and noted that autism isn't the driving factor anymore. Instead, parents are weighing fears of allergies and other side effects associated with vaccines, placing more trust in holistic medicine, and spacing out shots.
Organic Meat and Milk Higher in Healthful Fatty Acids
by Kenneth Chang
February 15, 2016
Organic meat and milk differ markedly from their conventionally produced counterparts in measures of certain nutrients, a review of scientific studies reported on Tuesday.
In particular, levels of omega-3 fatty acids, beneficial for lowering the risk of heart disease, were 50 percent higher in the organic versions. "The fatty acid composition is definitely better," said Carlo Leifert, a professor of ecological agriculture at Newcastle University in England and the leader of an international team of scientists who performed the review.
GAO: Feds lose $80M looking for Medicaid fraud
by Kelli Kennedy
June 14, 2012
Private contractors received $102 million to review Medicaid fraud data, yet had only found about $20 million in overpayments since 2008, according to a new report by the federal government.
"Significant federal and state resources are being poured in but only limited results are coming out," said Ann Maxwell, a regional inspector general for the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. The audits were found to be so ineffective they were stopped or put on hold, according to a report by the Government Accountability Office. The agency studied Medicaid audits performed by 10 companies.
What type of neck pain should I worry about?
by Katie StumbocloseAuthor: Katie Stumbo Name: Katie Stumbo

Neck pain has been burdening the human race for centuries. It can vary from occasional discomfort to chronic and severe pain and despite the commonality of it; little progress has been made in pin-pointing the exact causes and remedies.
Even today, it can be extremely tricky to diagnose and even harder to get rid of. The primary problem with neck pain is misdiagnosis. If you do visit a doctor you will likely be pigeon-holed into another case of "chronic neck pain," a very broad and not easily remedied diagnosis.
Natural Sunscreen Review: Over 80 Mineral Sunscreens Tested by One Family!
by Katie Kimball
June 25, 2017
Crazy but true - our family really has tested and reviewed over 80 mineral sunscreens, and we know the best natural sunscreens that really work! In this comprehensive sunscreen review, we share which ones stay on in the water or when you sweat...
Which brands make you look white like a ghost and which go on smoothly, what got us burned and what natural ingredients are REALLY the best (and the brands that are tricking you with their marketing). We've learned a lot about sun safety and sunscreen efficacy, and I continue to do research on things like Vitamin D. We started in 2010 with 28 of the 40 natural sunscreens that the Environmental Working Group (EWG) rated as "safe" at the time. (They now rank hundreds that way; exciting to see more and more brands getting on board!)
Oil Pulling Tips and Success Stories ~ Do You Swish?
November 9, 2015
Can oil pulling reduce gingivitis, tooth sensitivity, plaque, and bad breath, improving oral health AND even overall health? Can oil pulling even detox the whole body, fight heart disease and diabetes, and improve joint health?
I haven't been oiling pulling very often for the whole year-plus since my initial exploration, however. I renewed my commitment to the process after listening to Bruce Fife's talk via the HealThy Mouth Summit recordings that I am so fortunate to have been given access to.
Chicago Bulls: Derrick Rose's back feeling good
by K.C. Johnson
February 22, 2012
For Derrick Rose's back pain to stay away, the routine must remain. Thus, Rose admitted he will continue to visit Stuart Yoss, the Bannockburn-based chiropractor he thanked by name on TV.
Injury update: C.J. Watson missed his second straight game after suffering a mild concussion from his collision with the Nets' Kris Humphries on Saturday. The NBA implemented a new concussion policy in December. To be cleared, a player must remain symptom-free through increasing tests of exertion. Then, a league-hired neurologist must clear the player.
Chronic Or Permanent Stress Can Result In Mental Disorders Such As Schizophrenia
by Justin Caba
December 10, 2014
Long-term stress's impact on cells in the immune system, primarily microglial cells, can lead to the development of mental disorders, such as schizophrenia.
A recent study published in the Rubin science magazine has revealed that chronic or permanent stress's effect on microglial cells - immune-competent cells responsible for repairing synaptic links, removing damaged synapses, and facilitating the growth of new brain neurons - can lead to the development of mental disorders, such as schizophrenia.
