Bringing Back the Balance: A Chiro Mom's Perspective
by Lisa DeNardo
October 15, 2015
My introduction to chiropractic care came after the birth of my first child. As a new mother I found myself bombarded with facts, stories and ideas of what everyone else seemed to think was best for my child.
Walking into a mom's group at my local chiropractor's office was like a breath of fresh air, confirming my natural mother's instincts that told me to trust in my ability to make good decisions for myself and my baby. Chiropractic care not only supported this drive toward finding myself as a new mother, but also taught me to trust the inner wisdom of my body.

Natural Labour vs Induced Labour - 6 Main Differences
by Sam McCulloch
October 8, 2015
These days, a very common decision many parents-to-be face is whether to induce labour or wait for labour to begin spontaneously.
Women and their partners should be aware that induction of labour for a low risk pregnancy introduces a number of risks to a potentially normal labour and birth. Many parents are not aware of the reasons why waiting for labour to start without any interference is preferable and beneficial, when there are no medical complications. Unfortunately, it's not as simple as having some medication and labour begins (and ends) just as it would normally - it's actually very different.
Gov. Brown signs controversial assisted-suicide bill
by Los Angeles Times
October 5, 2015
Caught between conflicting moral arguments, Gov. Jerry Brown, a former Jesuit seminary student, signed a measure Monday allowing physicians to prescribe lethal doses of drugs to terminally ill patients who want to hasten their deaths.
"In the end, I was left to reflect on what I would want in the face of my own death," Brown wrote in a signing message. "I do not know what I would do if I were dying in prolonged and excruciating pain. I am certain, however, that it would be a comfort to be able to consider the options afforded by this bill. And I wouldn't deny that right to others."
'Raw' Cheese from the store is Not Raw!
September 22, 2015
In yet another case of labeling tricks and deception where store bought food is concerned, cheese produced in the United States and labeled as "raw" at the healthfood store and specialty shops is anything but.
Organic Valley, the corporate behemoth that has gone to the Dark Side where raw, fresh, organic, health giving grassfed milk is concerned is not surprisingly the worst offender of this loophole in the USDA regulations.
How To Make Egg Drop Soup - Cooking Lessons
by Emma Christensen
I find a bowl of egg drop soup to be one of the most soothing and comforting dishes ever invented. You only need three base ingredients to make it, two in a pinch. And yet breathing in that steamy broth and savoring the first spoonful of silky egg curd...
This soup is properly an appetizer. Despite its simplicity, I guarantee that your guests will be overjoyed to see this coming when you walk out of the kitchen. This recipe will make four small cups of soup, but can be easily scaled up if you have more guests at your table. I generally use 1 to 2 cups of broth and one egg per person.
More Americans Choose Chiropractic Care: Gallup
Far more adults than anyone thought are seeking help from chiropractors, according to a new nationwide Gallup report.
That's about 63 percent more than the 20.6 million adults previously estimated in less comprehensive studies, and likely indicates that the "chiropractic first" movement touted by health experts troubled by the overuse of addictive drugs and surgery has become increasingly popular.
Women in Weed: How Legal Marijuana Could Be the First Billion-Dollar Industry Not Dominated by Men
August 28, 2015
It seems fitting that a plant called Mary Jane could smash the patriarchy. After all, only female marijuana flowers produce cannabinoids like the potent THC chemical that gets users buzzed.
Pot farmers strive to keep all their crops female through flowering female clones of one plant, called the Mother. And women are moving into the pot business so quickly that they could make it the first billion-dollar industry that isn't dominated by men.
She Tells Her Grandma That She's Just Been Cheated On So Grandma Tells Her To Do This
August 25, 2015
This is a good lesson for all of us, no matter what stage of life you're in. You'll see what I mean.
A young woman went to her grandmother and told her about her life and how things were so hard for her - her husband had cheated on her and she was devastated. She did not know how she was going to make it and wanted to give up. She was tired of fighting and struggling. It seemed as soon as one problem was solved, a new one arose.

by Greg Botelho
August 18, 2015
California authorities on Tuesday reported they're looking at a second person with the plague in the state -- and, like the other case, this one visited Yosemite National Park.
The California Department of Public Health announced "a presumptive positive case of plague" involving someone from Georgia who had spent time in early August in the state.
