The Cincinnati Zoo says one of three Malayan tiger cubs at its nursery has been treated by a chiropractor.

What You Don't Know About Salt CAN Hurt You
by Erin Ter Beest
March 10, 2014
CDC studies suggest that a lower rate of salt consumption might actually be harmful. People who consume the least amount of salt were actually found to have the highest rates of cardiovascular disease.
The most commonly known additive found in salt is iodine, which has been added to salt for almost a century in order to help prevent thyroid disease. While iodine is important to thyroid health, the iodine added to salt is not a form that is very absorbable by the body and therefore, is largely wasted. When iodine is added to salt, it is necessary for manufacturers to also add in sugar, usually in the form of corn syrup (*GMO alert*). Iodine, in the form of potassium iodide, is unstable when combined with sodium. By adding sugar to the salt/iodine combination, the manufacturer is able to prevent oxidation and keep the iodine stable. The sugar also prevents discoloration that may make salt appear unpalatable. When looking for sugar on the nutrition label for salt, look for the word "dextrose."

Heal Your Pancreas With These 15 Foods That Produce Digestive Enzymes
July 29, 2017
Our pancreas is a small organ that plays a big part when it comes to our health. Pancreatitis is much more common than many people think. The most important function of the pancreas is to produce digestive juices and digestive hormones.
The pancreas also makes insulin, which controls the amount of sugar in our blood. Without insulin, we would die. The pancreas is hidden deep in the body between our other organs which makes seeing it for a visual inspection very difficult. The most common symptoms of pancreatitis include a burning pain in the upper abdomen that radiates to the back and nausea and vomiting that becomes severe when you try to eat. During an acute attack, people have a severe spike in their heart rate, respiratory rate, and blood pressure. Chronic pancreatitis leads to low energy levels, diabetes, nutritional deficiencies, and cancer of the pancreas.
Do Not Kill a Fever: Fever Kills Viruses
by Paul Fassa
February 18, 2017
Have you been influenced by modern allopathic medicine's obsession with lowering fever? Has this been a concern of yours?
Fever is the immune system's response in addition to sending T-Cells to fight antibodies. The T-Cells can kill bacterial pathogens. Those pathogens are killable by T-Cell attacks. Fevers are also part of the clean up process for toxic bacterial waste products.
Health Basics: Why are fried foods terrible for your health?
by S. D. Wells
July 29, 2016
Fried foods damage your body and brain in many different ways, and it's not just a long term consequence, but a short term detriment as well. Just as a car needs good clean oil to run efficiently and not break down.
You simply can't lie to yourself much with fried food because the ill effects are just too obvious. Simply grab some belly fat or pinch an inch on a hip or thigh, and then try to convince yourself it's okay. Plus, obesity basically means people are storing fried foods and carbohydrates as body fat, and for about a third of Americans, it's like carry-on luggage you can't set down, or at least not until you sit down. Face the facts:
The 10 most popular websites that consistently LIE about important health topics
June 22, 2016
Millions of Americans are growing to distrust medical doctors, dentists, dermatologists and oncologists, mainly because we're finding out that most of them are paid big bucks by Big Pharma to dish out chemical medicines that only cover up the symptoms.
Medical doctors learn next to nothing about nutrition in school. Dentists push toxic fluoride for "stronger teeth," and insert highly toxic mercury "amalgam" silver fillings in the mouths of our children. Dermatologists use "cut and burn" methods to try to eradicate cancer, when most skin cancer is caused by consuming toxic foods, applying toxic lotions and using carcinogenic personal care products. Oncologists push deadly chemotherapy, mammograms, CAT scans, surgery and radiation for cancer treatment, when most cancer spreads in the blood, and when those treatments create new cancers anyway.
A chiropractor's point of view on pillows and sleeping position
by Dr. Daniel Zagst
November 20, 2015
Back sleeper? Side sleeper? Stomach sleeper? All of the above? Humans can sleep in a wide variety of positions. Not one position is technically the "right" way to sleep, although there are strong arguments for some over others.
The most common sleeping positions are back, side, and stomach. There are some other contortionist positions but we will stick with these for now. With each position, the placement and type of pillow should differ. If you always sleep in the same position, you may want to try the others to see if it makes a change in your comfort level and quality of sleep.
The health benefits of blackstrap molasses
by Michael Ravensthorpe
June 4, 2015
Molasses is a thick syrup produced when the sugar cane plant is processed to make refined sugar for mass consumption.
Whereas the toxic and unhealthy refined sugar is destined for our supermarket shelves, the highly nutritious molasses - which contains all the minerals and nutrients absorbed by the plant - is more likely to be sold as livestock feed instead.
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."
