Placebos, Nocebos, and Chiropractic Adjustments
by Samuel Homola, D.C.
April 10, 2005
Appropriate spinal manipulation provides both real and placebo benefits in the treatment of mechanical-type neck and back problems.
But chiropractic adjustments based on the vertebral subluxation theory may offer a placebo effect that is outweighed by a nocebo effect. The word placebo, which is Latin for "I shall please," first appeared in the literature in 1785 and was eventually defined as "make-believe medicine." There is plenty of evidence to indicate that spinal manipulation has beneficial effects -- both real and placebo.

by Lee Enterprises
December 28, 2012
A passion for travel and an instinct to help has driven Dr. Lona Cook to Haiti and the Dominican Republic for the second straight year.
Cook is a chiropractor. "A lot of times, people want to know: "Well, as chiropractors, what can you do?" Cook doesn't leave them unimpressed. On her second mission trip to Costa Rica, Cook met a wheelchair-bound man who, after one adjustment, came back the next day with a walker.
Prominent Chefs Serve Up a Message to Congress: Label GMOs
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?"

If you're a stomach sleeper, chances are you're not getting the best possible night of rest. "It's the worst thing," New York chiropractor Dr. Jan Lefkowitz of Body in Balance Chiropractic told Business insider.
Unless you rest with your head face down into the pillow, you're probably turning your head to one side and that can put a lot of strain on your neck and cause misalignment problems, according to Dr. Lefkowitz.

Forced Vaccination is Equivalent to Human Experimentation and Subject to the Nuremberg Code
February 5, 2014
The loss of our basic right to determine our own health care including Forced Vaccinations is coming and in many cases the precursors already exist. When We The People no longer have the right to decide what goes into our bodies...
This article will discuss this point and the reasons so many of us choose not to vaccinate and will stand by that decision. Only the use of tyrannical force will overcome that objection. Study after study is proving that vaccines are ineffective, may cause the very disease they are purported to prevent and in some cases may cause more harm to us than the actual disease. Peer Reviewed studies now link vaccines and psychotropic drugs to such physical and mental diseases as Cancer, SIDS, Dementia, Autism, ADHD, Behavioral Disorders and a host of other maladies we as a nation suffer on a massive scale, some of which we as a nation lead the world in.
Brandon chiropractor reveals dark secret in book
by Jill Meier
December 30, 2011
The words were the actual thoughts of a young boy, David Ward, contemplating suicide in the mid-1970s. A variety of emotional incidents â€“ his fatherâ€™s unexpected death and ongoing bullying - led him to those life-ending actions.
Later in the book, Ward tells how God's intervention stopped him from climbing the tower that day to end his life. Now, nearly four decades later, Ward shares his emotional story and powerful message in a 79-page book, “A Life Almost Wasted." Dr. Ward said he initially felt God's calling to share his story about six years ago.
Americans Are Dying Younger, Saving Corporations Billions
by John Tozzi
August 8, 2017
Steady improvements in American life expectancy have stalled, and more Americans are dying at younger ages. But for companies straining under the burden of their pension obligations, the distressing trend could have a grim upside.
If people don't end up living as long as they were projected to just a few years ago, their employers ultimately won't have to pay them as much in pension and other lifelong retirement benefits. In 2015, the American death rate-the age-adjusted share of Americans dying-rose slightly for the first time since 1999. And over the last two years, at least 12 large companies, from Verizon to General Motors, have said recent slips in mortality improvement have led them to reduce their estimates for how much they could owe retirees by upward of a combined $9.7 billion, according to a Bloomberg analysis of company filings.
Cancer Drug Shortages Force Doctors to Ration, Delay Treatment
by Shannon Pettypiece
June 3, 2013
Shortages of medicines for some of the most common cancers have caused nearly half of doctors to delay treatment and forced about a third to choose between patients needing a particular drug.
The findings from a survey of 250 cancer doctors highlight the anxious situation some of their patients have faced during the past year as manufacturing lapses and changes in the generic-drug industry have cut off supply of key medicines, said Keerthi Gogineni, a cancer doctor at the University of Pennsylvania, who presented the finding in Chicago at the meeting of the American Society of Clinical Oncology. More than 80 percent of cancer doctors surveyed said they haven't been able to get needed medications, including potentially life-saving drugs for breast, ovarian and prostate cancers.
