50 Uses for Essential Lavender Oil - around the home and for the family
by Jennifer Schulman
July 31, 2015
My husband used to be really skeptical of natural therapies like essential oils, until we had to try them for our little ones. He was trained up relying on modern medicine and innovation as the "best way" to take care of just about anything.
However, with a lot of in-home experiments, and a lot of studying the natural, organic compounds and phytochemicals (plant chemicals) that are produced naturally, he has had quite a "turn-around" and has begun to realize the benefits of natural essential oils and remedies, in addition to their diminished or lack of toxic build up and side effects we can get from man made pharmaceuticals. He also made the connection that many pharmaceuticals are derived and manipulated from naturally occurring (often harmless) compounds and the only way major pharmaceutical companies can patent them is to alter them in a lab in order to claim limited proprietary rights to market them. Lavender could be perhaps one of the most versatile herbs and essential oils in the world.

Replace Household Products with Coconut Oil
by Abby Quillen

Coconut oil can handle the toughest scrubbing, reconditioning, and greasing jobs. Learn how to replace expensive and toxic products with coconut oil.
If you haven't switched to non-toxic household products yet, now is the time. Each year the U.S Poison Control hotline receives thousands of calls regarding accidental poisoning by common household cleaners and products. The Environmental Working Group (EWG) warns that 53 percent of the household cleaners they reviewed contain ingredients that can harm our lungs. Some products also contain carcinogens, such as formaldehyde and chloroform. Even more concerning, just seven percent of cleaners adequately disclose harmful ingredients. And the EWG warns many commercial "green cleaners" are equally misleading.
Expectant Mothers Show Interest in Prenatal Chiropractic Care
by Bianca Castro
July 16, 2015
According to the American Pregnancy Association, 50 to 70 percent of pregnant women experience back pain. Mother-to-be Colleen Hartley of Frisco knew back pain was a possibility, but she said she didn't expect the pain she felt during week 29.
"It was pretty bad. I could not even walk my dog around the block without walking extra slow and it was pretty painful," said Hartley. When she talked to her obstetrician about the pain, the doctor recommended prenatal chiropractic care, an alternative form of medical care gaining popularity among pregnant women.
Dr. Lipoff: Your Solution for Headaches
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.

Arsenic In Your Food Investigated
July 15, 2015
Organic rice baby cereal, rice breakfast cereals, brown rice, white rice-new tests by Consumer Reports have found that those and other types of rice products on grocery shelves contain arsenic, many at worrisome levels.
Arsenic not only is a potent human carcinogen but also can set up children for other health problems in later life. Following our January investigation, "Arsenic in Your Juice," which found arsenic in apple and grape juices, we recently tested more than 200 samples of a host of rice products. They included iconic labels and store brands, organic products and conventional ones; some were aimed at the booming gluten-free market.

Chiropractic care for ankylosing spondylitis
by Christina DeBusk
July 7, 2015
Chiropractors can be the ones to detect and treat this painful condition. The Spondylitis Association of America defines ankylosing spondylitis (AS) as "a form of arthritis that primarily affects the spine, although other joints can become involved."
This condition creates inflammation in the vertebrae that can lead to pain. If severe enough, new boney structures form, fusing portions of the spine and immobilizing it. Often this results in a forward-leaning position, most commonly affecting the sacroiliac joints (the joints where the spine meets the pelvis).
The miracle that cured my son's autism was in our kitchen
by Mackenzie Dawson
June 17, 2015
When a doctor told Susan Levin her 4-year-old son, Ben, was autistic, she was shocked. It was October 2007, and autism wasn't mentioned in the media nearly as much as it is today.
"I remember thinking, 'Oh my God. What are we going to do?' " Levin recalls. "Everyone knew autism was a lifelong disorder and couldn't be cured." Levin is part of a growing group of people who are paying more attention to diet - organic, gluten- and casein-free among them - as a way to treat the symptoms of autism and other disorders. So strongly does she believe in the healing possibilities of food that she's now a family wellness coach working exclusively with families of autistic children.
