A Drug Recall That Should Frighten Us All About The FDA - Forbes
by David Maris
October 10, 2012
Pay attention, as I can't say this seriously enough. Last week, the FDA took a drug off the market, and the reasons should send shivers of fear down the backs of consumers, investors, generic drug companies - and the FDA.
The FDA announced last week that the 300mg generic version of Wellbutrin XL manufactured by Impax Laboratories and marketed by Teva Pharmaceuticals was being recalled because it did not work. And this wasn't just a problem with one batch - this is a problem that has been going on with this particular drug for four or five years, and the FDA did everything it could to ignore it. The FDA apparently approved this drug - and others like it - without testing it. The FDA just assumed if one dosage strength the drug companies submitted for approval works, then the other higher dosages work fine also. With this generic, American consumers became the FDA's guinea pigs to see if the FDA's assumption was right. It wasn't.
A chiropractor's point of view on pillows and sleeping position
by Dr. Daniel Zagst
November 20, 2015
Back sleeper? Side sleeper? Stomach sleeper? All of the above? Humans can sleep in a wide variety of positions. Not one position is technically the "right" way to sleep, although there are strong arguments for some over others.
The most common sleeping positions are back, side, and stomach. There are some other contortionist positions but we will stick with these for now. With each position, the placement and type of pillow should differ. If you always sleep in the same position, you may want to try the others to see if it makes a change in your comfort level and quality of sleep.

A chiropractor says we should never sleep on our stomachs
by Megan Willett
July 28, 2016
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.
A better approach to beating chronic fatigue
by Dr. Isaac Eliaz
February 9, 2016
While researchers and standard doctors try to understand how to treat chronic fatigue with drugs, the integrative medical community has made a ton of progress in helping patients regain their energy and quality of life naturally.
The unifying symptom of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome is persistent and debilitating physical and often mental/emotional fatigue that results in at least a 50% reduction in activity. Other symptoms and signs can include but are not limited to muscle pain, muscle weakness, mild fever, recurrent sore throat, painful lymph nodes, headaches, joint pain, sleep disturbance, depression, digestive disorders such as IBS and neurological dysfunction. Typically these symptoms are ongoing and progress over months and even years, however, some individuals experience sudden onset of multiple symptoms as well.

by Isabelle Rousseau-Caron

As chiropractors, we all have essentially the same mission statement: to contribute to people's health through chiropractic care and inspire them to move toward wellness. Fulfilling the first part of the statement is easy for a chiropractor.
Be the person you ask your patients to be. You want people to be healthy? Be healthy. You want them to exercise, to eat well and to control their stress level? Do it yourself first. Then share your experiences, your accomplishments, your challenges and your tips, knowing what you're talking about.

8 Health WARNINGS Your Fingernails May Be Sending
by Jesse Cannone
May 29, 2014
Fingernails and disease don't go together in most minds... but they should. Your fingernails can give you valuable health warnings and signal the presence of serious disease.
Take a good long look at your nails. Hold a hand level with your nose about a foot out from your face and scrutinize each one. Look at the curves, dips, ridges, and grooves. Check out how thick or thin they are and if your nails are chipped or broken. Make a note of the color of the nail itself, the skin under it, and the skin around the nail.
75% of physicians in the world refuse chemotherapy for themselves
July 11, 2014
Doctors used to think that if they drained a sick person's blood it would purge the "evil" infection or disease right out of the body, but all that did was make the ill person much weaker, unable to fight off whatever was invading their body.
Research using polls and questionnaires continue to show that 3 of every 4 doctors and scientists would refuse chemotherapy for themselves due to its devastating effects on the entire body and the immune system, and because of its extremely low success rate. On top of that, only 2 to 4% of all cancers even respond to chemotherapy or prove to be "life extending," yet it is prescribed across the board for just about every kind of cancer.
7 Seasonal Affective Disorder Natural Treatments
December 13, 2016
The winter blues and lack of sunshine can take a toll, but seasonal affective disorder is even more serious. Fortunately, there are natural ways to stop SAD
The winter blues are well known and quite common - after all, these months come packed with a lot of holidays that can be emotionally draining. Combine that with minimal time in the sunshine, especially if you work in an office, and cold weather that seems to scream "stay home and get in a blanket," and it's no wonder that people tend to be a bit anti-social and grumpy from November until about April.
