10 Nail Symptoms and What They Mean for Your Health
by Joseph Mercola
November 5, 2016
Nails are often regarded as a purely aesthetic feature, and the $768 million spent annually on nail polish (in the U.S. alone) can attest to that.1 Yet, your nails are far more than a platform for bright colors and nail art.
The shape, texture, and color of your natural nails act as a window into your body, and while some nail symptoms are harmless, others can be indicative of chronic diseases, including cancer. As noted by the American Academy of Dermatology (AAD): "Nails often reflect our general state of health. Changes in the nail, such as discoloration or thickening, can signal health problems including liver and kidney diseases, heart and lung conditions, anemia, and diabetes."

Yosemite's Half Dome climb gets a bit easier
by Joshua Emerson Smith
July 15, 2012
YOSEMITE -- The permit process to climb Half Dome has made the iconic destination safer and more enjoyable, according to park officials.
But hikers making their way up the set of steel cables on the final 400-foot ascent must still cope with the inevitable moment when a nervous hiker freezes up, forcing the entire line into a vertical midair traffic jam on the side of the 8,800-foot granite monolith. It is dangerous especially if you're not prepared, said Duane Poslusny, a law enforcement ranger who checks permits using an iPad at the area known as the Sub-Dome.
Chiropractic allows natural self-healing
The Appalachian Student Newspaper

April 29, 2008
"Medicine is the study of diseases and what causes people to die," Chiropractor Meleah Mauldin said. "Chiropractic is the study of health and what causes people to live."
Mauldin said her favorite part of chiropractics is witnessing the miracle of the body healing itself. A common misconception of chiropractic care is that only people with pain can benefit from the adjustments, Mauldin said.
Tattoo ink poisoning Americans
by Julie Wilson
August 22, 2014
If you're reading this, there's a good chance that you have a tattoo. After all, nearly half of the population has decided at some point in their life that it was a good idea to permanently ink an image, or special symbol, onto their skin.
But now there's a new reason to rethink getting inked. Have you ever considered exactly what tattoo ink is made of? The ink is really pigment, and most are made of metal salts; however, some are made of plastics or vegetable dyes, and if organic, they're usually plant-based.
Arsenic In Your Food Investigated
July 15, 2015
Organic rice baby cereal, rice breakfast cereals, brown rice, white rice-new tests by Consumer Reports have found that those and other types of rice products on grocery shelves contain arsenic, many at worrisome levels.
Arsenic not only is a potent human carcinogen but also can set up children for other health problems in later life. Following our January investigation, "Arsenic in Your Juice," which found arsenic in apple and grape juices, we recently tested more than 200 samples of a host of rice products. They included iconic labels and store brands, organic products and conventional ones; some were aimed at the booming gluten-free market.
Chronic Or Permanent Stress Can Result In Mental Disorders Such As Schizophrenia
by Justin Caba
December 10, 2014
Long-term stress's impact on cells in the immune system, primarily microglial cells, can lead to the development of mental disorders, such as schizophrenia.
A recent study published in the Rubin science magazine has revealed that chronic or permanent stress's effect on microglial cells - immune-competent cells responsible for repairing synaptic links, removing damaged synapses, and facilitating the growth of new brain neurons - can lead to the development of mental disorders, such as schizophrenia.
Chicago Bulls: Derrick Rose's back feeling good
by K.C. Johnson
February 22, 2012
For Derrick Rose's back pain to stay away, the routine must remain. Thus, Rose admitted he will continue to visit Stuart Yoss, the Bannockburn-based chiropractor he thanked by name on TV.
Injury update: C.J. Watson missed his second straight game after suffering a mild concussion from his collision with the Nets' Kris Humphries on Saturday. The NBA implemented a new concussion policy in December. To be cleared, a player must remain symptom-free through increasing tests of exertion. Then, a league-hired neurologist must clear the player.
Natural Sunscreen Review: Over 80 Mineral Sunscreens Tested by One Family!
by Katie Kimball
June 25, 2017
Crazy but true - our family really has tested and reviewed over 80 mineral sunscreens, and we know the best natural sunscreens that really work! In this comprehensive sunscreen review, we share which ones stay on in the water or when you sweat...
Which brands make you look white like a ghost and which go on smoothly, what got us burned and what natural ingredients are REALLY the best (and the brands that are tricking you with their marketing). We've learned a lot about sun safety and sunscreen efficacy, and I continue to do research on things like Vitamin D. We started in 2010 with 28 of the 40 natural sunscreens that the Environmental Working Group (EWG) rated as "safe" at the time. (They now rank hundreds that way; exciting to see more and more brands getting on board!)
Oil Pulling Tips and Success Stories ~ Do You Swish?
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.
