12 health benefits of apple cider vinegar
by Melissa Breyer
January 24, 2014
Legend has is that Cleopatra once dissolved a pearl in a measure of vinegar before drinking the concoction, thus winning a wager against Marc Antony that she could spend a fortune on a single meal.
Truth or apocrypha, we may never know, but the Queen of the Nile most likely knew the special qualities of vinegar. Since 5,000 BC, the Babylonians had been using it as a preservative and condiment; and long before Cleopatra's costly cocktail, Hippocrates had extolled vinegar's medicinal qualities. In fact, the Vinegar Institute touts the tart liquid as one of our earliest remedies.

So with its nontoxic friendliness and status as an endlessly abundant resource, let's swap out some toxic solutions for ample, innocuous, and inexpensive salt.

by Dr. William Cole
January 22, 2014
Millions of people struggle with low thyroid symptoms, and millions more experience the symptoms of a low thyroid only to have their labs come back negative. They're told they are "normal," and are left with no answers.
Symptoms like anxiety, irritability, depression, brain fog, weight gain and fatigue can debilitate lives for decades. One major underlying factor that isn't being addressed in the standard model of care is toxins. Whether they're synthetic or natural in nature, toxins are a piece of the complex thyroid puzzle. Here are 11 offenders that may be affecting your thyroid function:
Do NOT Let Your Child Get Flu Vaccine -- 9 Reasons Why
by Dr. Joseph Mercola
October 6, 2009
This year it is more important that you protect your children and loved ones from the flu vaccines than influenza itself.
The swine flu is simply another flu. It is not unusually deadly. This is the first time both seasonal and pandemic flu vaccines will be administered. Both seasonal flu and swine flu vaccines will require two inoculations. This is because single inoculations have failed to produce sufficient antibodies. This is an admission that prior flu vaccines were virtually useless. Can you trust them this time?
Yosemite's Half Dome climb gets a bit easier
by Joshua Emerson Smith
July 15, 2012
YOSEMITE -- The permit process to climb Half Dome has made the iconic destination safer and more enjoyable, according to park officials.
But hikers making their way up the set of steel cables on the final 400-foot ascent must still cope with the inevitable moment when a nervous hiker freezes up, forcing the entire line into a vertical midair traffic jam on the side of the 8,800-foot granite monolith. It is dangerous especially if you're not prepared, said Duane Poslusny, a law enforcement ranger who checks permits using an iPad at the area known as the Sub-Dome.

by Justin Caba
December 10, 2014
Long-term stress's impact on cells in the immune system, primarily microglial cells, can lead to the development of mental disorders, such as schizophrenia.
A recent study published in the Rubin science magazine has revealed that chronic or permanent stress's effect on microglial cells - immune-competent cells responsible for repairing synaptic links, removing damaged synapses, and facilitating the growth of new brain neurons - can lead to the development of mental disorders, such as schizophrenia.

Medical News Today (UK)
March 7, 2005
There is a growing body of evidence that wellness care provided by doctors of chiropractic may reduce health care costs, improve health behaviors, and enhance patient perceived quality of life.
In a landmark study published this week in the Journal of Vertebral Subluxation Research (JVSR; http://www.jvsr.com), chiropractors collaborating with researchers at the University of Lund found that chiropractic care could influence basic physiological processes affecting oxidative stress and DNA repair. These findings offer a scientific explanation for the positive health benefits reported by patients receiving chiropractic care.

Medical News Today
September 13, 2005
The Council on Chiropractic Pediatrics of the International Chiropractors Association, released today a document entitled, "The Child Patient: A Matrix for Chiropractic Care."
This groundbreaking document, authored by Dr. Joan Fallon, for the first time outlines the parameters for necessity of chiropractic care for children of all ages.

Natural Health from A to Z - Columns

If you are GRUMPY, DEPRESSED and IRRITABLE, read this. Your mood is determined not only by what you think and feel, but by physiological things such as blood sugar, food sensitivities, liver function and vitamin and mineral deficiencies.
FOODS greatly influence the brain. Poor diets, particularly those with too much sugar, caffeine and junk food are a common cause of depression and irritability. The brain will produce stress hormones when we eat the wrong things. However, on a good, balanced diet, the brain will produce serotonin, which is a relaxer. So fix your diet!
The Definitive Guide to Oils
by Mark Sisson
February 8, 2017
Before you can hope to make it as a speculator and start slingin' barrels for big money, you've got to understand exactly what's gushing forth from the earth's crust.
Today's post is actually about edible oils. Well, they're all technically edible - they can all be swallowed and digested - but as for being palatable, let alone healthful? That remains to be seen. Not all oils are created equal, especially given the fact that most of the ones people use nowadays are actually created in an industrial laboratory. No oil "exists naturally," mind you. Olive oil isn't harvested by leaving open containers under leaking, dripping olives on the branch, nor is that liquid sloshing around inside a coconut pure oil. I'm not trying to disparage processing in and of itself.
