Posture makes a difference
by Fairfax Regional Media
May 15, 2013
EVERY year two million Australians are affected by back pain. Chiropractors such as local Sol MacKenzie of MacKenzie Chiropractic are asking Australians to focus on posture during national Spinal Health Week.
Mr MacKenzie said chiropractors used to focus on more technical aspects of healing but were now looking at the importance of diet, exercise and posture to improve health. Many people with office jobs could spend eight hours a day sitting, which created a set posture, he said.

The More Vaccines An Infant Receives In Its First Year, The Higher The Mortality Rate
by Dave Mihalovic
May 2, 2013
How many babies have to die for Doctors to get it? Synergistic toxicity is a well-known phenomenon where the combination of toxic substances can be greater than the sum of its parts.
Therefore, mixing two non-lethal levels of chemicals inside a vaccine can lead to an extremely toxic mixture. The medical community appears to gloss over this very pertinent fact that appears to be progressively killing more infants every year. "Synergistic toxicity" refers to the effect that when exposed to two toxins, the toxicity level is far greater than the additive toxicity levels of the two toxins.
The truth about chiropractors
by Liz Miersch
April 25, 2013
Chiro's resurgence is being fueled by high-powered CEOs, Hollywood studio execs, and A-listers-mostly via concierge services in their homes or offices or on movie sets.
"A patient of mine asked if I would leave my practice and travel around the world with him to treat him," says Los Angeles-based Brad Fazekas, D.C. The paparazzi snapped Leonardo DiCaprio leaving a chiropractic office in New Orleans; Kim Kardashian tweeted, "Chiropractors really are life savers. . . . I'm obsessed!;"and Jessica Alba is reportedly a fan. Why they're doing it: Because it's not just about easing back problems. Karen Erickson, D.C., a spokesperson for the American Chiropractic Association, says, "Besides relief of muscle soreness and pain, patients often report an overall feeling of well-being and reduced stress." Getting straightened out can have benefits for both your sedentary life and your gym performance.
Sevierville's Hood finished Boston Marathon hour before blasts
by Stan Voit
April 17, 2013
Dr. John Hood had finished his eighth Boston Marathon and retrieved his complimentary bag in which his clothes and cellular telephone were stashed before the race began. He was about two blocks away when he heard the first bomb go off.
The chaos has begun, and it was so wild that Hood and most of the other racers and spectators didn't know nearly as much as the TV watchers did. They heard rumors that it was a gas leak or a pipe bomb. That didn't lessen the feelings of anxiety among those, like Hood, who lacked information.
Animal chiropractors say their drugless, non-surgical adjustments are cheaper than vet care
by Associated Press
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.

Chiropractors not just for people
by David Schwab
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.
GMO's Do you know what you're eating? Flounder in Tomatoes? Should food have to be labelled?
April 9, 2013
In the US and many countries there's a refusal to force manufacturers to clearly label products that use GMO's. Wheat, Corn, almost all food stocks are now GMO's and many are used as feed to animals.
Look at low chicken and pork prices in the US and what are those animals fed mostly? GMO's. When I was a kid in the 70's the news talked about vaccines being implanted into crops in Africa to help fight disease. A noble goal indeed. Instead this has turned into a vicious money game with big players like Monsanto controlling whole markets with government support. The big questions other than following the money is simply why not label foods GMO and give the public the choice? Why suppress information? Why suppress studies? Even foods labelled as Organic or with organic practices may be grown from GMO seeds.
