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?
REGION: Local parents increasingly skip children's immunizations
by Kevin Crowe and Roxanna Popescu
August 18, 2011
A growing number of California parents decided to skip some or all immunizations for their kindergartners in 2010 by signing personal-belief waivers.
Dana Tankell, a chiropractor in San Diego who has never vaccinated either of her school-aged daughters, was relieved to learn that more parents are opting out. Wooten said she is not surprised that the number of personal exemptions is growing and noted that autism isn't the driving factor anymore. Instead, parents are weighing fears of allergies and other side effects associated with vaccines, placing more trust in holistic medicine, and spacing out shots.
Replace Household Products with Coconut Oil
by Abby Quillen
July 23, 2015
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.

To a large degree traditional medicine focuses on the symptoms of fibromyalgia that occur after the knockout blow. The knockout blow is the original traumatic event.
Bergman's wonderful video seems like a much more reasonable approach. Okay, if the person with fibromyalgia has all these symptoms, how do you take care of the CAUSES of the symptoms, rather than just reducing the pain from the symptoms. This makes so much more sense to me. So, by chiropractice adjustments, and adjustments to diet and gut health, Bergman achieves powerful results.
Right from the start

New chiropractors are well advised to study those with more experience. But you can learn a lot from those who are just starting out of the gate, too.
But of course the Internet is useful in a variety of ways - not the least of which is marketing. "When I was in practice 40 years ago, you had to be listed in the Yellow Pages," Singer says. These days, the advice is different for the 1,000 practices he consults with each year. "Patients don't find you in the Yellow Pages. They find you on the Internet." But this isn't news, right? "You would be surprised at how many established chiropractors have no website or don't know what social media is," notes Nona Djavid, DC. In 2008, she started two businesses: her own practice and MyChiroPractice Inc., a marketing and branding company exclusively for chiropractors.
Rx drug program in Calif needs lifeline to survive
by Greg Risling
November 26, 2011
Traditional police work wouldn't have nabbed Dr. Lisa Barden for visiting 43 pharmacies to illegally obtain tens of thousands of pain pills to fuel her own addiction.
Nor would it have busted Dr. Nazar Al Bussam as the top distributor of controlled substances in California over a three-year period in a prescriptions-for-cash scheme. In both cases, a computer database did the essential sleuth work. The program known as the Controlled Substance Utilization Review and Evaluation System has exposed so-called pill mills that also has led to dozens of convictions in prescription drug abuse cases.

"The South Salt Lake clinic offers K-Laser therapy; [it] uses heat to help with arthritis," Ingraham says.
McDonald says the laser therapy also helps heal wounds. She explains the infrared wavelengths from the laser create a warm sensation in an animal's body at the precise area requiring attention. The noninvasive treatment is used as an alternative to drugs.
