Turn to kinesiology tape for 'treatment between treatment'
by Amy Verner
June 20, 2011
Since last week, people have been asking whether I have been sporting some stylish, new body art. In fact, I have had my foot and ankle covered in SpiderTech kinesiology tape to help heal a soft-tissue injury.
But while I am new to the world of kinesiology tape, kinesiology tape is not new to the world. But while I am new to the world of kinesiology tape, kinesiology tape is not new to the world. It dates back to the 1970s when Japanese chiropractor Kenzo Kase developed a cotton tape with an acrylic adhesive that could be used to treat a variety of conditions, from reducing inflammation to activating underused muscles. It also may offer some relief for cancer patients suffering from lymphedema.
Poor-fitting Athletic Shoes Can Lead to Back Pain, Chiropractors Say
by American Chiropractic Association
December 6, 2005
ARLINGTON, Va., -- Too many people choose fashion over function when purchasing running shoes, not realizing that poor-fitting shoes
can do more than hurt their stride; they can also lead to pain throughout the body.
Because footwear plays such an important role in the functional biomechanics of the human body -- especially for runners and other athletes -- choosing the right shoe can help eliminate pain in your back, hips, knees and feet, says the American Chiropractic Association (ACA). "Your feet are the foundation of your body, and if they are not properly supported you can have problems anywhere from the bottom of your feet up through your neck," explains Jeffery Solomon, DC, president of the ACA's Council on Sports Injuries & Physical Fitness.
Study Finds Scented Candles and Air Fresheners Pose Dangerous Health Risks
by Alexis Hobbs
February 12, 2017
The holiday season is the perfect time get out those scented candles and stock up on new ones. Apple pie, pumpkin spice, and evergreen are some of our favorites - year round, really. But some of the results from recent studies have given us pause.
It started when we spied an article by John Naish of the Daily Mail - the reporter said he found evidence to suggest that scented candles could actually make us quite sick. And it's not just candles; apparently "aerosols, plug-ins, gels, and incense sticks" are also troubling. The fear lies in the chemicals that can be found in the fragrance and wax. While more research certainly needs to be done to make a truly definitive statement, some researchers feel that extended, long-term use of certain scented items might lead to asthma, lung damage, or - in extreme cases - even cancer.
An alternative perspective

For many of us, homeopathy is one of those things we've heard of... but we might not be able to describe it, exactly.
Why are we talking about this? Well, the FTC will be hosting a free, public workshop on September 21, 2015, to take a closer look at advertising for over-the-counter homeopathic products. Because there are plenty of products, and plenty of ads for them. You can find the products in stores and pharmacies, on the shelf right next to conventional medicine - and you've probably seen the ads online or on TV.
Replace Household Products with Coconut Oil
by Abby Quillen

Coconut oil can handle the toughest scrubbing, reconditioning, and greasing jobs. Learn how to replace expensive and toxic products with coconut oil.
If you haven't switched to non-toxic household products yet, now is the time. Each year the U.S Poison Control hotline receives thousands of calls regarding accidental poisoning by common household cleaners and products. The Environmental Working Group (EWG) warns that 53 percent of the household cleaners they reviewed contain ingredients that can harm our lungs. Some products also contain carcinogens, such as formaldehyde and chloroform. Even more concerning, just seven percent of cleaners adequately disclose harmful ingredients. And the EWG warns many commercial "green cleaners" are equally misleading.
Back (or neck) breaking work

It is a moment of anticipation. Amidst a doctor's voice telling you to relax and saying that this is going to be such a simple procedure that you will leave saying, "that was it, that's all it took," you all of a sudden hear the noise ...
"cc-rr-ACK." For a second I took the time to realize that was indeed my neck that just made that usually horrifying sound. The loudness of my neck cracking was then validated by my doctor's reaction of, and I believe this is a technical term, "wowie!" Soon after it is done, though, I had feelings only of relief and confidence in my doctor.

Heal Your Pancreas With These 15 Foods That Produce Digestive Enzymes
July 29, 2017
Our pancreas is a small organ that plays a big part when it comes to our health. Pancreatitis is much more common than many people think. The most important function of the pancreas is to produce digestive juices and digestive hormones.
The pancreas also makes insulin, which controls the amount of sugar in our blood. Without insulin, we would die. The pancreas is hidden deep in the body between our other organs which makes seeing it for a visual inspection very difficult. The most common symptoms of pancreatitis include a burning pain in the upper abdomen that radiates to the back and nausea and vomiting that becomes severe when you try to eat. During an acute attack, people have a severe spike in their heart rate, respiratory rate, and blood pressure. Chronic pancreatitis leads to low energy levels, diabetes, nutritional deficiencies, and cancer of the pancreas.
