Placebos, Nocebos, and Chiropractic Adjustments
by Samuel Homola, D.C.
April 10, 2005
Appropriate spinal manipulation provides both real and placebo benefits in the treatment of mechanical-type neck and back problems.
But chiropractic adjustments based on the vertebral subluxation theory may offer a placebo effect that is outweighed by a nocebo effect. The word placebo, which is Latin for "I shall please," first appeared in the literature in 1785 and was eventually defined as "make-believe medicine." There is plenty of evidence to indicate that spinal manipulation has beneficial effects -- both real and placebo.
Piers Morgan offered $1 million to survive 1,000 vaccine shots; Alex Jones and Health Ranger announce vaccine challenge on national radio
by Mike Adams
September 23, 2013
Following an hour of discussion about the toxicity of the destructive chemicals and heavy metals still used in vaccines -- a fact openly admitted by the CDC -- Jones suggested that executives of vaccine companies should be executed if found guilty...
Adams suggested that instead of a regular execution, they should simply be injected with large quantities of their own medicines -- the very same vaccines that are routinely injected into infants and children across America. This conversation soon morphed into the idea that Piers Morgan should be offered $1 million if he agrees to be injected with 1,000 vaccines. [Watch the video...]

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.
Pediatricians recommend organic food to avoid pesticides effects
by Hope Gillette
November 4, 2012
Avoiding the nocive effects of pesticides may be as simple as buying organic foods, states a report from the American Academy of Pediatrics, which conducted an extensive look into organic produce, dairy products and meat.
Pediatricians concluded that, while nutritionally similar to conventional foods, organic foods may be lower in pesticide residue. Lower-levels of pesticides are an important consideration when it comes to a child's diet.
Patients seeking pain relief are beginning to see 'the light'
by Sameh Fahmy
July 30, 2004
Ruptured discs in her neck and fibromyalgia left Sandy Butler with pain so severe she was bedridden for a year. Today she's back on her feet and credits a little-known treatment with easing her pain and restoring her independence.
The treatment, called cold laser therapy, or low-level light therapy, directs light energy at tissue to help it heal. It was approved by the federal Food and Drug Administration two years ago for the treatment of carpal tunnel syndrome, and chiropractors are increasingly using it to treat back and neck pain, shoulder and knee injuries and other joint pain.
Patchwork of state regs on raw milk blankets the country
by Cookson Beecher
January 18, 2016
There's more than one way to skin a cat. That's especially true when looking at how states are tangling with the dilemma of how to regulate the sale of raw milk.
Raw milk is milk that hasn't been pasteurized with heat to kill pathogens such as E. coli, Salmonella, Listeria and campylobacter. The controversy comes because many raw-milk advocates tout it as a natural, clean product that offers a wide range of health benefits, among them preventing digestive upsets and asthma. Many also say it's a matter of food freedom - that consumers should be free to choose what they drink or eat.
Parameters of Chiropractic Care for Pediatric Patients
Medical News Today
September 13, 2005
The Council on Chiropractic Pediatrics of the International Chiropractors Association, released today a document entitled, "The Child Patient: A Matrix for Chiropractic Care."
This groundbreaking document, authored by Dr. Joan Fallon, for the first time outlines the parameters for necessity of chiropractic care for children of all ages. "The foundation of chiropractic care is the presence of subluxation," states Fallon. "For children, subluxation manifests itself differently than in adults, and also may occur as a result of multiple non- pain producing activities especially in the very young child.
Over 650,000 Meals in Hospitals Will Now be Served ...
by Ryan Koronowski
June 10, 2013
University of California at San Francisco Medical Center in an almost-unanimous vote by the Academic Senate of the university, over 650,000 meals served to hospital patients each year will now be free of meat that has been treated with antibiotics.
Livestock are often fed everything from penicillin to macrolide to ensure their health, but often to the detriment of the people who consume their meat. Ranchers and farmers discovered several decades ago that feeding their livestock just small doses of these antibiotics could fatten them up for market, and bring in larger profits. This practice isn't often publicized, so many people are unaware of the practice. A doctor who has studied this subject Stuart B. Levy, M.D., estimates that there are 15-17 million pounds of antibiotics used sub-therapeutically in the United States each year.
Organic News: After reading this, you'll never look at a Banana in the same way again.
by Jonathan Kalan Mashed
April 12, 2014
Bananas contain three natural sugars - sucrose, fructose and glucose combined with fiber. A banana gives an instant, sustained and substantial boost of energy.
Research has proven that just two bananas provide enough energy for a strenuous 90-minute workout. No wonder the banana is the number one fruit with the world's leading athletes. But energy isn't the only way a banana can help us keep fit. It can also help overcome or prevent a substantial number of illnesses and conditions, making it a must to add to our daily diet.
