Benefits of Having a Fever
by Avery Hurt
February 15, 2017
Back in 1980, a prominent pediatrician named Barton Schmitt coined the term "fever phobia" to describe the understandable desire of many parents to bring down fevers in their children as quickly as possible.
A fever, not surprisingly, indicates that your child is fighting off some kind of infection, such as a simple cold, the flu, or an ear infection. It is not an illness in itself. In fact, a fever may do some good. A study published in the February 2004 Journal of Allergy and Clinical Immunology found that children who ran a fever during their first year were less likely to develop allergies later in childhood than children who did not have fever. More importantly, according to the AAP, a fever can help your child's body fight off infection.
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.
Free the Children

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.
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.
Natural Prescriptions For Parkinson's Disease
by Bruce Scali
December 17, 2017
After 200 years of investigation, researchers and clinicians have identified neither the cause nor the cure for Parkinson's disease, the condition first described by James Parkinson in 1817.
Neurodegenerative symptoms such as tremor and a shuffling gait, also known as paralysis agitants, have been observed and recorded by physicians since ancient times. Much has been learned since about the characteristics of Parkinson's disease, but much remains unknown. Not only do the cause and cure of Parkinson's continue to elude us, but doctors still cannot identify those in early stages of the disease. Consequently, a definitive program for prevention remains uncertain.
Sex May Lead To Migraine Relief For Some
Personal Liberty Alerts
March 6, 2013
Some case reports suggest sexual activity during a migraine or cluster headache may relieve the pain in at least some patients, researchers in Germany say.
"We asked for experience with sexual activity during a headache attack and its impact on headache intensity," the researchers wrote in the study. "The survey was strictly and completely anonymous." Thirty-eight percent of the migraine patients and 48 percent of the patients with cluster headache responded.
The Anti-Aging Aspects of Stretching
November 20, 2015
Many people stretch, but few truly understand that it's an art and a science. There's a right way and a wrong way to derive all the inherent benefits.
There's an ancient adage that proclaims: "You are as young as your spine is flexible." People who've retained the elasticity of their spines and limbs appear youthful and "alive" in middle age and beyond. Consistency of practice and relaxation are two of the biggest keys in the art of stretching.
Let it shine

With every hand movement, secretary Pat Brigode would flinch at sharp pains she said reminded her of a thick rubber band being pulled and snapped hard. "We added light therapy to my other treatments, and I felt immediate relief," she said."
Professional sports teams and college athletic departments -- including those at Pitt, Penn State and Indiana University of Pennsylvania -- are using light therapy for healing and pain relief. Nursing homes use it to speed wound healing and ease the ache in arthritic joints. Physical therapists and chiropractors say it also works for bursitis, backaches and other muscle and joint pains.
How important is it that we tell people about Chiropractic?
by Sharon Gorman, DC
August 15, 2006
How important is it that we tell people about Chiropractic? How much urgency do you have about sharing it with others? Most of us have seen the benefit to us in more than just the removal of symptoms.
To most of us Chiropractic has become a way of life. The principles have become a set of principles that we have grown to live with and we allow to guide our lives. When we have a symptom we don't look outside of ourselves for an answer, we look for the cause. We have a certain respect for our bodies and for the intelligence that resides in it. We are pro-active in assuring our good health by including regular adjustments as a way to make sure that our nervous symptom is working the best that it can.
Pregnancy and Chiropractic
by Martha Collins, D.C.
February 6, 2005
As I write this today, two of our beautiful practice members are awaiting the arrival of new additions to their families. Adjusting women through pregnancy is one of the most rewarding parts of our work, because a healthier pregnancy means an easier labou
On Monday night at our workshop, a young woman told the story of the traumatic birth of her son, and the subsequent eight years of poor health he has suffered as a result. She was unaware that Chiropractic care through pregnancy would have given him a better start, and angry that she didn't know this prior to her son's conception. I promised her I'd get the word out. This article is dedicated to her and her son with the intent that this information will prevent another mother and child years of heartbreak.
