Dangers of Essential Oils
by Tori Rodriguez
April 11, 2016
Odds are you know someone who sells essential oils for a multi-level marketing company, and they might just tout them as a miracle remedy for just about everything.
Anything powerful enough to have a beneficial effect on the body could also have negative effects, says Bauer. "Whether it's a drug, an herb or an essential oil, all should be treated with respect," he says. "What works for one person may not work for the next-or may interfere with medications," he says, or have other side effects. Don't assume it's safe because it's natural, and be aware that "not all essential oil companies test their oils for quality," says Roz Zollinger, a certified aromatherapist, instructor and founder of the Heal Center in Atlanta. Research the company before you buy.
10 All-Natural Allergy Remedies

April 8, 2016
Your allergies are driving you crazy, but you really don't like to take conventional medications. Or maybe you've tried over-the-counter allergy meds-or even prescription ones-but you're not getting the relief you need. What else might work?
You might be tempted to pack up the humidifier, but hold off, recommends John Salerno, DO, a family practitioner at Patients Medical holistic wellness center in New York City. "When it's still a little cool at night and indoor humidity is low, using a cool-mist humidifier can help get allergens out of the air," he explains. "Water droplets bind to the allergens, and they get heavy and fall to the floor so you don't inhale them." Getty
Can Quitting Gluten Be Bad for You?

Following a gluten-free diet used to be a dreaded challenge faced only by people who had celiac disease or gluten sensitivity.
Wheat is a major source of gluten. Following a gluten-free diet used to be a dreaded challenge faced only by people who had celiac disease or gluten sensitivity. Now gluten-free products are easy to find and going gluten-free has become a diet option for anyone. But it's not always the best choice. If you're not careful about your food selections, a gluten-free diet may lack essential nutrients. Gluten proteins in wheat, rye and barley trigger an autoimmune response in people with celiac disease. Following a gluten-free diet relieves celiac-related symptoms. However, a medical professional should make such a diagnosis. Deciding to go gluten-free can be risky. You might not be as strict about avoiding sources and forms of gluten as you must be. If you have celiac disease, eating even a small amount of gluten damages your intestines, resulting in health problems throughout your body. Undiagnosed celiac disease also can increase your risk of osteoporosis and thyroid disease. If you experience bloating, abdominal pain, diarrhea, joint pain or a skin rash, consult your doctor.
What The Color and Smell of Your Poop Is Telling You About Your Health
by Dr. Mercola
April 5, 2016
If you ignore what you deposit in your toilet, you could be flushing your health down the drain!
When it comes to toileting habits, the topic is not exactly a favorite among Americans - at least for those above the age of four. Mention poop and you can easily clear a room - or at the least, generate some unusual facial expressions, nervous laughter, and wisecracks about "too much information." But your bodily emissions are an important health topic that deserves serious attention, regardless of the "ick factor." In fact, if you ignore what you deposit in your toilet, you could be flushing your health down the drain! Did you know the average person generates about five TONS of stool in his or her lifetime? Turns out, there is much to be learned from this mountain of poop.

'Different' kind of treatment delivers chronic pain relief
by Sonia Azad
December 17, 2016
If you have chronic pain in your neck or back, you know how miserable it feels day-to-day. Perhaps your options have whittled down to pain killers, anti-inflammatories, physical therapy or surgery.
There is no cracking or aggressive movement involved in NSA. Lewis and business partner Amy Gunderson focus on gentle, precise touch to your spine and the connective tissues around it. "I honestly was at a point where I was willing to try anything," said Madeline Kiefer, who calls NSA a lifesaver.
Organic Meat and Milk Higher in Healthful Fatty Acids
by Kenneth Chang
February 15, 2016
Organic meat and milk differ markedly from their conventionally produced counterparts in measures of certain nutrients, a review of scientific studies reported on Tuesday.
In particular, levels of omega-3 fatty acids, beneficial for lowering the risk of heart disease, were 50 percent higher in the organic versions. "The fatty acid composition is definitely better," said Carlo Leifert, a professor of ecological agriculture at Newcastle University in England and the leader of an international team of scientists who performed the review.
Reassessing Flu Shots as the Season Draws Near
by Roni Caryn Rabin
November 5, 2012
A report released last month said influenza vaccinations provide only modest protection for healthy young and middle-age adults, and little if any protection for those 65 and older.
It's flu-shot season, and public health officials are urging everyone over 6 months of age to get one. Many businesses provide on-site flu shots, and some hospitals have told staff members that they have to wear masks if they do not get the vaccine. By 2020, United States health leaders want 80 percent of the population to get yearly shots. For vaccine manufacturers, it's a bonanza: Influenza shots - given every year, unlike many other vaccines - are a multibillion-dollar global business. But how good are they?
Chiropractors not just for people
by David Schwab
April 12, 2013
Many people who have aches and pains in their joints will visit a chiropractor. What many might not know is that it's a popular practice for horses as well.
Kristen Vetter of rural East Grand Forks gave us a demonstration of her chiropractic work on one of her horses at her farm. She was just certified last September and now is working on ten or more horses a week. This involves a series of touches and inspections that begin at the head and work towards the tail of the horse. Vetter can identify vertebrae that may be out of alignment by the horses tension to a touch, and then she gently moves the joint back into place.
Animal chiropractors say their drugless, non-surgical adjustments are cheaper than vet care
by Associated Press
April 17, 2013
Thirty years ago, Dr. Gene Giggleman was a veterinarian who thought chiropractors were quacks. Since then, he says he's straightened out thousands of dogs and cats, not to mention the occasional snake, hamster, gerbil and guinea pig.
In Southern California, Dr. Rod Block has tended to an elephant, a paralyzed iguana, a turkey, pigs, llamas and countless dogs and horses. "You have to be very much in tune with the being of the animal you are working with," said Block, who limits his work these days to house calls throughout Southern California, where he works with several veterinarians.
