Doctor-chiropractor team can ease low back pain, project finds
June 14, 2012
Family doctors working closely with chiropractors to ease a patient's low back pain can lead to fast and effective treatment, a pilot project found.
Doctors reported sending fewer patients for tests and surgical specialists after an assessment and recommendations by a chiropractor during the Ministry of Health-funded study by the Ontario Chiropractic Association. The traditional route is referring patients to an orthopedic surgeon and ordering MRIs to determine if surgery is necessary, a long process and in most cases surgery is not warranted. Meanwhile, a patient can often become inactive out of fear of further aggravating the condition and simply because of the discomfort.

More and more teens are spending time text messaging and looking at their smart phones, but it can be a real pain in the neck, especially for the younger generation.

Daily Times (Pakistan)
December 7, 2005
LAHORE: It could be time to discard the adage that an apple a day keeps the doctor away.
According to Guardian, a British newspaper, with Apple Computer's iPod digital music player continuing to sell well, and the tiny iPod nano set to be one of the must-have gifts this Christmas, physicians are now warning that the first cases of a condition they are labelling "iPod finger" have started to emerge. "Handheld music machines are extremely popular and users are constantly using small, difficult buttons with the same finger in a repetitive motion," said Carl Irwin from the British Chiropractic Association.

Dr. Lipoff: Your Solution for Headaches
July 16, 2015
n your lifetime at least 95 percent of all women and 90 percent of men will experience a headache. All of this pain will account for over 150 million missed days of work and $13 billion in lost productivity.
Many people take medicine but that only temporarily helps the symptoms. It's like taping over a hole in a damn. It temporarily stops the symptom of water leaking out but hasn't corrected the problem. Water will find its way. That's okay. I'm fine with medications if they help you get headache relief so you can sleep or are able to work but what about preventing them and solving what causes them? That's where you need to look a little further.
Durbin Attack on Supplements Fails Again
by Lee Bechtel
May 24, 2012
The Durbin amendment, # 2127, to S.B.3187 to reauthorize the FDA Prescription Drug and the Medical Device User Fees has failed on the Senate floor.
The Durbin amendment would have heaped yet more reporting requirements on supplement manufacturers with those companies who launched, reformulated, or discontinued supplements having to report those products and any changes within thirty days of the launch, reformulation, or change. What does any of this nonsense have to do with food safety? Absolutely nothing. It's all about making supplements more expensive and less affordable for the average consumer.
Ease the pain of gardening with stretches and proper tools
by Lois Abraham
May 28, 2012
Lugging bags of potting soil, turning compacted flower beds and pulling hard-to-reach weeds offer plenty of exercise, but when these tasks are done incorrectly they can result in stiff and sore joints along with muscle, neck and back pain.
Chiropractors and other specialists who treat people for aches and pains often see a surge in business after the weekends from people who try to get all their gardening done in one go. The association's public awareness program, called "plant and rake without the ache," was launched because chiropractors were seeing so many patients with aching backs from gardening.
Eat your words, all who scoff at organic food

In a unique experiment, its rolling pastures and ploughed fields have been split into two so that conventional and organic produce can be grown side by side.
It has enabled scientists to test the alternative foods rigorously and answer a question that most shoppers ask themselves on a regular basis: is buying organic better for you? Already one conclusion is clear: organically produced crops and dairy milk usually contain more "beneficial compounds" believed to help to combat disease.
Ebola cure: WATER! Drinking a gallon of fluid daily recognized as key to survival
by Ethan A. Huff
November 22, 2014
One of the primary lessons being learned from the Ebola crisis is that fancy meds and vaccines aren't needed to cure the disease. Simple water, it turns out, is one of the best treatments for the hemorrhagic illness.
Drinking four liters, or about one gallon, of water daily is critical for surviving the infection, say scientists. And rehydration solutions containing water with added minerals like potassium and magnesium are even better for overcoming the extreme shock that occurs when the body loses too much water, such as with Ebola. "When people are infected, they get dry as a crisp really quickly," said Simon Mardel, an emergency room doctor advising the World Health Organization (WHO) on Ebola in Sierra Leone, the second-hardest-hit country besides Liberia. "Then the tragedy is that they don't want to drink."
