Home Birth Safer Than Hospital Birth: Nation-Wide Study Netherlands
by Heidi Stevenson
June 26, 2013
Yet another study, this one consisting of every birth in The Netherlands over two years, demonstrates that home births are safer than hospital births. Women are more than twice as lifely to end up in intensive care if they give birth in a hospital!
In The Netherlands, the majority of births occur at home, not in hospitals. A study reported in theBMJ found that women whose pregnancies were low-risk suffered far fewer severe negative outcomes from home than hospital births, especially after the first pregnancy. The study, published 13 June 2013, focused on two serious adverse events: postpartum hemorrhage and manual removal of the placenta, both of which are life-threatening, and also included admission to intensive care, eclampsia, and more than four packed cells in a blood transfusion.
Pediatricians recommend organic food to avoid pesticides effects
by Hope Gillette
November 4, 2012
Avoiding the nocive effects of pesticides may be as simple as buying organic foods, states a report from the American Academy of Pediatrics, which conducted an extensive look into organic produce, dairy products and meat.
Pediatricians concluded that, while nutritionally similar to conventional foods, organic foods may be lower in pesticide residue. Lower-levels of pesticides are an important consideration when it comes to a child's diet.
Why We're All Deficient In Magnesium
by Howard Tseng
March 25, 2015
Signs of magnesium deficiency are everywhere in the United States, if you know what to look for. Unfortunately, the symptoms are so incredibly common that they constantly slip under the radar!
Unfortunately, conventional medicine has not woken up to the amount of research that has been done on magnesium deficiency. One of the reasons Western Medicine is so off base with magnesium is how they test it: with blood tests. Blood tests do not yield ANY information about magnesium... why? Because the body controls the levels of blood magnesium very tightly. If the magnesium in the blood drops just a little bit, you're going to have a heart attack. It's that sample. So to prevent this, the body will rob all of its cells, tissues, and bones of magnesium in order to keep the blood levels constant. If you do a blood test for magnesium, the cells could be completely empty while your blood levels remain constant.
Learning the limits of overuse injuries
by Ira A. Shapiro, DC, and Edward C. Camacho, DC
November 20, 2015
A recent study by the American Journal of Sports Medicine found that teens between ages 15 and 19 now account for almost 60 percent of all Tommy John surgeries. This is followed by the 20-to-24-year-old age group.
Most often, these and related shoulder injuries are caused by extreme stress placed on the shoulder by overhand motions repeatedly performed at high speeds. This is especially true for young pitchers, swimmers, and athletes who are not only developing physically but are also continually overwhelmed by repetitive stress to the shoulder and surrounding ligaments, muscles, and tendons. In fact, "Little League elbow" is now a common diagnosis for many 10-to-14-year-olds.
8 Ways: Inspiring People to Move Toward Wellness
by Isabelle Rousseau-Caron
June 17, 2011
As chiropractors, we all have essentially the same mission statement: to contribute to people's health through chiropractic care and inspire them to move toward wellness. Fulfilling the first part of the statement is easy for a chiropractor.
Be the person you ask your patients to be. You want people to be healthy? Be healthy. You want them to exercise, to eat well and to control their stress level? Do it yourself first. Then share your experiences, your accomplishments, your challenges and your tips, knowing what you're talking about.
Himalayan Salt Lamp Benefits + Real vs. Fake Salt Lamps
by Its Inherent Nature
January 12, 2017
If you buy a true Himalayan salt lamp and use it regularly, you may just notice easier breathing, a calmer demeanor and better sleep in your near future.
What on Earth is a Himalayan salt lamp? Himalayan sea salt is believed to be composed of dried remnants of the original, primal sea dating back to planet Earth's creation. I've talked before about the health benefits of Celtic sea salt and Himalayan salt , but what if I told you that there are actually lamps made from Himalayan salt? It's true! They're called salt lamps or salt rock lamps, and yes, they're actually made from pink Himalayan salt and are able to light your surroundings - but they're really not bought for their moderate lighting abilities.
Salt Lake Tribune - Good needling
The Salt Lake Tribune

"The South Salt Lake clinic offers K-Laser therapy; [it] uses heat to help with arthritis," Ingraham says.
McDonald says the laser therapy also helps heal wounds. She explains the infrared wavelengths from the laser create a warm sensation in an animal's body at the precise area requiring attention. The noninvasive treatment is used as an alternative to drugs.
Why it's worth paying more for organic food
by Jacquie Hayes
March 4, 2016
When the going gets tough, the tough (and smart) get going to health retreats. This has been my fallback position for almost a decade now since I started searching for ways to reset in an increasingly manic life.
Organic devotees are attracted by the prospect of clean food devoid of harmful pesticides that tastes as it should and a diet built of produce that is seasonal and fresh. But unless you live in Queensland where the culture and the climate make for easy organic pickings, tracking down the good stuff can be tricky. Not to mention that organic food is still relatively expensive compared to conventional produce. Some consider it the domain only of "the rich".
Shaking Up The Salt Debate!
by James Colquhoun
April 5, 2016
A mineral that has received a lot of bad press, salt is actually fundamental to our health. Ironic, isn't it? So why are we led to believe salt is bad? I am blowing the lid on the salt debate.
So here it is: SALT IS GOOD FOR YOU Salt? I hear you say. Are you sure? And this is where the camp of traditional believers might jump in, yelling 'NO. IT'S NOT!'. And they would be right if I was talking about the chemically produced table salt that is added to most processed foods, meats and snacks (that IS bad for you). But I'm not. I'm talking about REAL salt - 100 percent natural salt that is extracted from a legitimate natural source and is not bleached or processed.
The Most Overlooked, Effective Prescription Drug
by Jamie Deckoff-Jones, MD
September 23, 2013
Oxygen makes up almost 21% of every breath we take. It is fundamental to life. Without it, we die in minutes. It is an odorless, colorless gas that is poorly understood by most doctors, even though it is regulated as a prescription drug in most countries.
An oxygen concentrator delivers oxygen through a tube to the patient via a cannula in the nose, a simple mask, or a non-rebreather mask. A non-rebreather mask has a reservoir which holds pure oxygen until the breath is taken; it has one way valves to prevent inspiration of ambient air and to allow exhalation gases out so carbon dioxide is not retained. Tanks are quieter, but at the high flows I'm using, need to be replaced frequently. Concentrators are noisy, but easier to move around and never run out, as they extract the oxygen directly from the air in the room. Concentrators can be portable, but most portables only produce 1-2 L/min (liters of flow per minute).
