Health Basics: Why are fried foods terrible for your health?
by S. D. Wells
July 29, 2016
Fried foods damage your body and brain in many different ways, and it's not just a long term consequence, but a short term detriment as well. Just as a car needs good clean oil to run efficiently and not break down.
You simply can't lie to yourself much with fried food because the ill effects are just too obvious. Simply grab some belly fat or pinch an inch on a hip or thigh, and then try to convince yourself it's okay. Plus, obesity basically means people are storing fried foods and carbohydrates as body fat, and for about a third of Americans, it's like carry-on luggage you can't set down, or at least not until you sit down. Face the facts:
The 10 most popular websites that consistently LIE about important health topics
June 22, 2016
Millions of Americans are growing to distrust medical doctors, dentists, dermatologists and oncologists, mainly because we're finding out that most of them are paid big bucks by Big Pharma to dish out chemical medicines that only cover up the symptoms.
Medical doctors learn next to nothing about nutrition in school. Dentists push toxic fluoride for "stronger teeth," and insert highly toxic mercury "amalgam" silver fillings in the mouths of our children. Dermatologists use "cut and burn" methods to try to eradicate cancer, when most skin cancer is caused by consuming toxic foods, applying toxic lotions and using carcinogenic personal care products. Oncologists push deadly chemotherapy, mammograms, CAT scans, surgery and radiation for cancer treatment, when most cancer spreads in the blood, and when those treatments create new cancers anyway.

Ocular Migraine Causes, Symptoms: Home Remedies For Migraine Relief
December 5, 2016
Ocular migraine, medically known as ophthalmoplegic migraine affects the eye. Ocular migraine should not be confused with a migraine aura that affects the vision.
Migraine is a neurological disorder, the precise cause of which is still quite ambiguous. Migraine is linked to abnormalities of the blood vessels of the head. Ocular migraine occurs when the blood vessels suddenly constrict, thus decreasing blood supply to the eye.
Natural Labour vs Induced Labour - 6 Main Differences
by Sam McCulloch
October 8, 2015
These days, a very common decision many parents-to-be face is whether to induce labour or wait for labour to begin spontaneously.
Women and their partners should be aware that induction of labour for a low risk pregnancy introduces a number of risks to a potentially normal labour and birth. Many parents are not aware of the reasons why waiting for labour to start without any interference is preferable and beneficial, when there are no medical complications. Unfortunately, it's not as simple as having some medication and labour begins (and ends) just as it would normally - it's actually very different.
Patients seeking pain relief are beginning to see 'the light'
by Sameh Fahmy
July 30, 2004
Ruptured discs in her neck and fibromyalgia left Sandy Butler with pain so severe she was bedridden for a year. Today she's back on her feet and credits a little-known treatment with easing her pain and restoring her independence.
The treatment, called cold laser therapy, or low-level light therapy, directs light energy at tissue to help it heal. It was approved by the federal Food and Drug Administration two years ago for the treatment of carpal tunnel syndrome, and chiropractors are increasingly using it to treat back and neck pain, shoulder and knee injuries and other joint pain.
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.
Can Quitting Gluten Be Bad for You?
by Sandi Busch
November 26, 2015
Following a gluten-free diet used to be a dreaded challenge faced only by people who had celiac disease or gluten sensitivity.
Wheat is a major source of gluten. Following a gluten-free diet used to be a dreaded challenge faced only by people who had celiac disease or gluten sensitivity. Now gluten-free products are easy to find and going gluten-free has become a diet option for anyone. But it's not always the best choice. If you're not careful about your food selections, a gluten-free diet may lack essential nutrients. Gluten proteins in wheat, rye and barley trigger an autoimmune response in people with celiac disease. Following a gluten-free diet relieves celiac-related symptoms. However, a medical professional should make such a diagnosis. Deciding to go gluten-free can be risky. You might not be as strict about avoiding sources and forms of gluten as you must be. If you have celiac disease, eating even a small amount of gluten damages your intestines, resulting in health problems throughout your body. Undiagnosed celiac disease also can increase your risk of osteoporosis and thyroid disease. If you experience bloating, abdominal pain, diarrhea, joint pain or a skin rash, consult your doctor.
Source of golfers' back pain? It's all in the hips
by Sandy Thorn Clark
April 17, 2011
A Westmont chiropractor says often golfers mistakenly think their pain originates in the back. Take a look at the hip joints and that may very well be the origin of the pain.
If hip motion inhibition is confirmed, Wehrend then administers massage, electrical stimulation, acupuncture and/or Kinesio Taping to help alleviate pain and promote healing. He also has the patient perform customized in-office and take-home exercises to build strength.
Beam of light gives ray of hope for those in pain
by Sara Diamond
September 19, 2008
Laser treatment has been around for several decades, but just recently became more mainstream. This new treatment, which is approved by the FDA, is used to treat musculoskeletal injuries, chronic and degenerative conditions and wounds.
Miguel Cruz, D.C., a chiropractor in Burnsville, North Carolina says the light is absorbed by micro-molecules in the skin and initiates a powerful reaction skin. It also causes the body to produce endorphins, which inhibit the sensation of pain, and cortisol, which helps the body combat stress associated with injury or disease.
