The Shocking Truth About Calcium Supplements
February 27, 2016
Is Low Calcium Or An Acidic Diet The Primary Risk For Calcium Deficiency? A Recent meta-analysis of studies (Fenton et al, 2008) has found that increased acidity from the modern diet appears to increase urinary Calcium losses by at least 66mg/day.
Over 20 years this looks like a huge 480g of Calcium lost potentially from bones which contain a total of 1,150g calcium in adults. That is a third of our calcium stores. No wonder we are seeing more osteoporosis, osteopenia and reduced bone density in women and men. To understand this better, let's briefly recap the role calcium plays in our body. Most of us, I am sure, are under the impression, calcium is only important as far as our bone structure and strength goes. Nothing could be farther from the truth. Calcium is required in the body to regulate the pH of the blood. It is found in the bones because that is where it is chiefly stored. Calcium is alkaline and is used to maintain homeostasis of our blood pH. If our blood becomes too acidic our body can go into shock, acidosis and coma.

The Top 6 Reasons Why Parents Are Choosing Not To Vaccinate Their Kids
by Arjun Walia
February 15, 2015
More and more parents around the globe are choosing to opt out of vaccinating themselves and their children. As a result of this trend that's been gaining more and more momentum, a harsh response has come from the "pro-vaccine" community.
At the end of the day it's not really about "pro-vaccination" or "anti-vaccination," it's not one "against" the other or about pointing fingers and judgement, it's simply about looking at all of the information from a neutral standpoint. It's about asking questions and communicating so people can make the best possible decisions for themselves and their children. Parents love their kids and the vaccine "controversy" has made it difficult for many parents to know what to do.
The truth about chiropractors
by Liz Miersch
April 25, 2013
Chiro's resurgence is being fueled by high-powered CEOs, Hollywood studio execs, and A-listers-mostly via concierge services in their homes or offices or on movie sets.
"A patient of mine asked if I would leave my practice and travel around the world with him to treat him," says Los Angeles-based Brad Fazekas, D.C. The paparazzi snapped Leonardo DiCaprio leaving a chiropractic office in New Orleans; Kim Kardashian tweeted, "Chiropractors really are life savers. . . . I'm obsessed!;"and Jessica Alba is reportedly a fan. Why they're doing it: Because it's not just about easing back problems. Karen Erickson, D.C., a spokesperson for the American Chiropractic Association, says, "Besides relief of muscle soreness and pain, patients often report an overall feeling of well-being and reduced stress." Getting straightened out can have benefits for both your sedentary life and your gym performance.
The Truth About Secondary Drowning
May 24, 2014
The weekend of May 17, writer Lindsay Kujawa and her toddler son Ronin were at a family pool party. Kujawa sat at the edge of the pool while Ronin played on the top step of the spa, and for five seconds she shifted her position.
Suddenly, she noticed Ronin wasn't on the step and was instead being whirled around by the jets in the whirlpool, frantically trying to get his head above water. She pulled him out immediately and other than him coughing and being very upset, he seemed totally fine after a few minutes and they went on with the rest of the party.

The Wave: Arizona's strange and spectacular rock formation
by Jaymi Heimbuch
April 28, 2016
Considered one of the most photographed landscapes in the United States, The Wave is a sandstone rock formation in the Coyote Buttes near the Arizona-Utah border. Each year, hikers scramble to get one of the few permits granted to hike in.
Only 20 hikers a day are allowed, and tens of thousands of people apply every year to be one of those lucky hikers. But how is this strange, surreal beauty even possible? There are two major troughs: the first is 62 feet wide and 118 feet long, and the second is 7 feet wide and 52 feet long. The troughs were first formed by water erosion, as run-off carved deeper and deeper into stone from the Jurassic age. But as the drainage basin that fed water to the troughs shrank, water flow ceased, and the fascinating formation -- with steps and risers cut high into the steep sandstone walls -- has been continued entirely through erosion by wind as it funnels through the troughs.

October 27, 2006
The trend in laser therapy for the past 10 years has been to increase power density and dose, since this has been shown to improve therapeutic outcomes considerably.

There's A Simple Way To Make A Big Dent In California's Drought. Why Aren't Government Officials Promoting It?
by Leighton Woodhouse
April 8, 2015
If just one in ten Southern Californians were to install a greywater system in their home, the state would conserve as much potable water as it expects to generate through the massive $1 billion desalination plant that is about to come online.
So why aren't more state and local government officials encouraging California homeowners to install residential greywater systems as a key part of reducing urban water usage throughout the state?
