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.

December 2, 2014
More than 700 chefs - including Tom Colicchio, José Andrés, Art Smith and Sam Talbot - are urging members of Congress to support legislation to mandate labeling of genetically modified foods and to oppose efforts to block state GMO labeling laws.
"This is about transparency in the marketplace and preventing consumer deception," agreed Colin O'Neil, director of government affairs at the Center for Food Safety. "Consumers can only make informed decisions when they are given the information to do so. We require labels on everything from juice from concentrate to foods that have been irradiated; why should genetic engineering be any different?"

Question: Are you subluxated?

For more than 100 years, chiropractors have been viewed as many things. Some people think that chiropractors are "back pain, neck pain doctors." Others think that they are great with ear infections and asthma. Others think chiropractors fix headaches.
Chiropractors only perform one function, and that is to identify, locate and correct the interference to the nervous system. The nervous system in turn is able to do its job, controlling and coordinating every organ, tissue and cell of the body - like an orchestra. This allows the symphony within your body to play at its highest possible level of perfection.

Raw Cacao vs Cocoa: What's The Difference?
February 14, 2016
Cacao and cocoa are kind of the same thing... They're also very different! We don't want to confuse you but we want you to discover the truth about their differences.
The studies that boast of chocolate's amazing health benefits are not referring to your average store-bought chocolate bar (damn misleading researchers). The chocolate that they're referring to is raw cacao. Raw cacao is made by cold-pressing unroasted cacao beans. The process keeps the living enzymes in the cacao and removes the fat (cacao butter).
Reassessing Flu Shots as the Season Draws Near
by Roni Caryn Rabin
November 5, 2012
A report released last month said influenza vaccinations provide only modest protection for healthy young and middle-age adults, and little if any protection for those 65 and older.
It's flu-shot season, and public health officials are urging everyone over 6 months of age to get one. Many businesses provide on-site flu shots, and some hospitals have told staff members that they have to wear masks if they do not get the vaccine. By 2020, United States health leaders want 80 percent of the population to get yearly shots. For vaccine manufacturers, it's a bonanza: Influenza shots - given every year, unlike many other vaccines - are a multibillion-dollar global business. But how good are they?
