New Way To Diagnose Sciatica May Point To A Different Cause
by Cedars-Sinai Medical Center
February 2, 2005
Researchers have found that new nerve imaging technology called Magnetic Resonance neurography was effective to reveal that a pinched-nerve in the pelvis called piriformis syndrome caused sciatic leg pain in the majority of patients who had failed diagnos
For the last 70 years, a damaged disc in the lower back has been widely accepted as the most common cause of sciatica - a condition where the sciatic nerve is pinched, causing pain to radiate down the leg. As a result, treatment for sciatica is based on diagnosis of a damaged disc, despite the fact that nerves cannot be viewed with routine imaging tests. Consequently, over one million patients each year undergo magnetic resonance imaging scans (MRI) for sciatica and many are told there is no obvious cause for their pain.

Non-drug treatment works in neck pain
by Niall Hunter
January 13, 2012
Getting treated by a chiropractor and taking light exercise may be the best way to relieve neck pain, according to new research.
The support group Arthritis Ireland says the findings underline the fact that arthritis and muscular pain require more than just a drug-treatment approach. Researchers found that this type of non-medical treatment results in better outcomes than common pain relief drugs such as aspirin and ibuprofen.
Nurture the Nervous System, Nourish the Baby
by Sarah Clark
August 29, 2017
We all know the benefits of breastfeeding for a newborn, but we also must not underestimate the joy and emotional well-being that follow when a mother is able to feed her infant as planned and find empowerment through her own natural ability.
Yet far too many women suffer from unexplained pain, latch problems and even infection when they attempt to breastfeed, one of the most natural things in the world. This overwhelming pain and trouble when a woman is at her most sensitive can cause the early cessation of the nursing relationship and considerable emotional turmoil. This not only results in disappointment for the mom, but also an infant who misses out on the very best in early nutrition.
Ocular Migraine Causes, Symptoms: Home Remedies For Migraine Relief
December 5, 2016
Ocular migraine, medically known as ophthalmoplegic migraine affects the eye. Ocular migraine should not be confused with a migraine aura that affects the vision.
Migraine is a neurological disorder, the precise cause of which is still quite ambiguous. Migraine is linked to abnormalities of the blood vessels of the head. Ocular migraine occurs when the blood vessels suddenly constrict, thus decreasing blood supply to the eye.
Oil Pulling Tips and Success Stories ~ Do You Swish?
by Katie Kimball
November 9, 2015
Can oil pulling reduce gingivitis, tooth sensitivity, plaque, and bad breath, improving oral health AND even overall health? Can oil pulling even detox the whole body, fight heart disease and diabetes, and improve joint health?
I haven't been oiling pulling very often for the whole year-plus since my initial exploration, however. I renewed my commitment to the process after listening to Bruce Fife's talk via the HealThy Mouth Summit recordings that I am so fortunate to have been given access to.
On the Bright Side
ADVANCE for Directors in Rehabilitation

An evidence-based look at laser therapy shows promise for musculoskeletal conditions.
As early as the 1960s, Endre Mester studied the effects of low-energy argon and helium-neon lasers on the behavior of biological tissues and cells, both in vivo and in vitro. In the following decade, researchers Freidrich Plog and Joseph Skovajsa presented data on the positive effects of low-energy lasers for wound healing, pain relief and laser acupuncture.
One in Five Pregnant Women Take Opioid Painkillers
May 6, 2014
And what doctors are prescribing as an alternative is just as dangerous. Action Alert! We've told you before about the dangers of prescription opioid painkillers: drugs like oxycodone (OxyContin) and hydrocodone (Vicodin) are incredibly addictive...
Alarmingly, a full 20% of pregnant women now use these prescription painkillers, according to the New York Times. What's worse, not all women are being prescribed opioids equally: those with Medicaid, as well as those who live in the south, are being prescribed painkillers during pregnancy at much higher rates: 23% of women on Medicaid, compared to 14% of women with private insurance, are being prescribed opioids.
One Writer Breaks Down The Real Deal On Ditching Shampoo
by Tara Rasmus
January 23, 2014
Recently, we learned that you all have serious opinions about washing (or, more accurately, not washing) your hair when we wrote about a blogger who hasn't washed her hair in five years. Jacquelyn Baers told The Huffington Post.
Well, writer Lauren O'Neal at The Hairpin is here to make a new case for "alterna-poo." O'Neal abandoned shampoo three years ago for a new routine: She rinses her hair first with apple cider vinegar, then with baking soda (she does this routine about once a week).
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.
