May 6, 2013
On April 18, 2013, in an historic victory for the chiropractic profession, the Michigan Court of Appeals ruled that MAC lawsuits against Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan (BCBSM) and Blue Care Network (BCN) could move forward as class-action lawsuits, meaning that damages could be awarded. Michigan Association of Chiropractors (MAC) President Dr. Dennis Whitford was elated with the victory, which he called a "tremendous win and important step on the road to overall victory" in the lawsuits.
Methylfolate Makes Me Crazy
April 10, 2016
We've talked about the MTHFR mutant problem before (right here) but haven't really addressed the actual taking of methylfolate. We mutants are out there, walking among you unable to convert regular old folic acid into methylfolate.
I will stand with pride among you my brothers and sisters because yes, I too am a mutant. Deep shuddering sigh. As it turns out, using gene markers alone to plan a healthy nutritional protocol is not as straightforward as it would seem. The reason being that every system in the human body has a glorious level of redundancy - we are literally designed to fail in eight hundred ways and still function normally. Simply having the MTHFR mutation doesn't actually mean that high-dose methylfolate like Deplin® which is prescribed in either 7.5 mg or 15 mg doses is a good idea.

Maybe You Aren't Actually Gluten Intolerant. Maybe You're Just Poison Intolerant.
March 2, 2017
Over the past couple of years, I had the unpleasant experience of having bloodwork done to confirm that I am gluten intolerant, only to have it come back and say, "Nope, you're just crazy."
It's happened to scores of other people, who pass the test for the anti-gliadin antibodies but still know that their health issues directly correlate with what they eat. Now we may know why. The tests were right. I'm not gluten intolerant. I'm poison intolerant.
Marjoram drug racket in Coles herb aisle
by Monique Bowley
May 21, 2015
Coles' prices may be down down but one man has accused the company of helping consumers get up up on a drug induced high, selling Marjoram willy nilly.
The herb, with sweet pine and citrus flavors, is synonymous with oregano, with varieties including sweet marjoram, knotted marjoram, and even "pot" marjoram. It goes brilliantly with roast chicken, tomato based dishes and quiche. There are no known cases of it causing a disorientation, lack of physical coordination, often followed by hysterical laughing, paranoia or sudden and unexplained craving for snack food.
Manawatu Chiropractor Greg Oke Out Of Olympics Job
July 4, 2012
Manawatu chiropractor Greg Oke's skills won't be needed at the London Olympics, thanks to a "polyclinic" in London which has put him out of the job.
Oke has been to two Olympics as the New Zealand team chiropractor - Athens in 2004 and Beijing in 2008 - and was also part of the teams that went to the Commonwealth Games in Melbourne in 2006 and Delhi in 2010.
Man-Made Drought: A Guide To California's Water Wars
by Rep. Devin Nunes
June 12, 2015
For decades, extreme environmentalists have tried to remove 1.3 million acres of California farmland from production by depriving farmers of water.
From Merced all the way down to Bakersfield, and on the entire west side of the Valley as well as part of the east side, productive agriculture would end and the land would return to some ideal state of nature. I was stunned by the vicious audacity of their goal - and I quickly learned how dedicated they were to realizing it. Much of the media and many politicians blame the San Joaquin Valley's water shortage on drought, but that is merely an aggravating factor. From my experience representing California's agricultural heartland, I know that our water crisis is not an unfortunate natural occurrence; it is the intended result of a long-term campaign waged by radical environmentalists who resorted to political pressure as well as profuse lawsuits.
Make 2017 the year to avoid toxins (good luck) and master your domain: Words on Wellness
by Dr. Daniel Neides
February 20, 2017
I am tired of all the nonsense we as American citizens are being fed while big business - and the government - continue to ignore the health and well-being of the fine people in this country.
I, like everyone else, took the advice of the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) - the government - and received a flu shot. I chose to receive the preservative free vaccine, thinking I did not want any thimerasol (i.e. mercury) that the "regular" flu vaccine contains. Makes sense, right? Why would any of us want to be injected with mercury if it can potentially cause harm? However, what I did not realize is that the preservative-free vaccine contains formaldehyde.
Low back pain a universal problem
by Dr. Paul Reese
October 23, 2007
Osteoarthritis is commonly considered a "wear-and-tear" process and is associated with degenerative changes in the disc.
This derangement causes an increased strain, as well as a loss of motion of the gliding joints of the spine. These gliding joints (facets) are found in pairs, along the entire spine, and their function is to allow for movement and flexibility of the spine.
