How To Make Egg Drop Soup - Cooking Lessons
by Emma Christensen
September 22, 2015
I find a bowl of egg drop soup to be one of the most soothing and comforting dishes ever invented. You only need three base ingredients to make it, two in a pinch. And yet breathing in that steamy broth and savoring the first spoonful of silky egg curd...
This soup is properly an appetizer. Despite its simplicity, I guarantee that your guests will be overjoyed to see this coming when you walk out of the kitchen. This recipe will make four small cups of soup, but can be easily scaled up if you have more guests at your table. I generally use 1 to 2 cups of broth and one egg per person.
'Raw' Cheese from the store is Not Raw!
In yet another case of labeling tricks and deception where store bought food is concerned, cheese produced in the United States and labeled as "raw" at the healthfood store and specialty shops is anything but.
Organic Valley, the corporate behemoth that has gone to the Dark Side where raw, fresh, organic, health giving grassfed milk is concerned is not surprisingly the worst offender of this loophole in the USDA regulations.
Gov. Brown signs controversial assisted-suicide bill
by Los Angeles Times
October 5, 2015
Caught between conflicting moral arguments, Gov. Jerry Brown, a former Jesuit seminary student, signed a measure Monday allowing physicians to prescribe lethal doses of drugs to terminally ill patients who want to hasten their deaths.
"In the end, I was left to reflect on what I would want in the face of my own death," Brown wrote in a signing message. "I do not know what I would do if I were dying in prolonged and excruciating pain. I am certain, however, that it would be a comfort to be able to consider the options afforded by this bill. And I wouldn't deny that right to others."
Natural Labour vs Induced Labour - 6 Main Differences
by Sam McCulloch
October 8, 2015
These days, a very common decision many parents-to-be face is whether to induce labour or wait for labour to begin spontaneously.
Women and their partners should be aware that induction of labour for a low risk pregnancy introduces a number of risks to a potentially normal labour and birth. Many parents are not aware of the reasons why waiting for labour to start without any interference is preferable and beneficial, when there are no medical complications. Unfortunately, it's not as simple as having some medication and labour begins (and ends) just as it would normally - it's actually very different.

Bringing Back the Balance: A Chiro Mom's Perspective
by Lisa DeNardo
October 15, 2015
My introduction to chiropractic care came after the birth of my first child. As a new mother I found myself bombarded with facts, stories and ideas of what everyone else seemed to think was best for my child.
Walking into a mom's group at my local chiropractor's office was like a breath of fresh air, confirming my natural mother's instincts that told me to trust in my ability to make good decisions for myself and my baby. Chiropractic care not only supported this drive toward finding myself as a new mother, but also taught me to trust the inner wisdom of my body.
Benefits of Earthing | Discharging to Heal the Body
October 19, 2015
Numerous health professionals are evermore stressing the great health benefits of earthing.
Various studies have proven the healing effects of earthing, which has surprisingly been found to be more powerful than the use of antioxidants, pain killer medication, blood sugar regulators and at times even cancer medication. Earthing provides the body with natural balancing effects, which is done by shifting and stabilizing charged particles to and from the earth. Earthing is essentially ridding your body from free radicals, pollutants and heavy metals by discharging the body through direct contact with the earth.

4 Benefits Plantar Fasciitis Sufferers Gain By Using Chiropractic
One of the most difficult medical conditions to spell is also one of the most common. Plantar fasciitis is the most common cause of heel pain.
A person is afflicted with this medical condition when the tissue tears in the long ligament that runs along the bottom of the foot, called the plantar fascia ligament. The resulting symptoms include pain and inflammation that can be acute and often ongoing. It's estimated that 2 million Americans suffer from plantar fasciitis. However, many different factors cause the condition.
Free the Children
by Charles Eisenstein
October 20, 2015
I've been seeing a lot of news articles recently about parents being arrested and their children removed from their custody because they let them play unsupervised outdoors. The first thing I felt upon reading these stories was intense indignation.
Why is this happening? Why has there been this tremendous change from my own childhood, in which it was normal for us to wander far and wide, unsupervised, as young as 6 or 7? There are a few reasons. First, the decline of community. During my childhood, all the neighbors knew each other and would keep an eye on each other's kids. The boundary between home and not-home was more fluid, more gradual. The neighbor's yard or the cornfield at the end of the street was still home territory.
