What The Color and Smell of Your Poop Is Telling You About Your Health
by Dr. Mercola
April 5, 2016
If you ignore what you deposit in your toilet, you could be flushing your health down the drain!
When it comes to toileting habits, the topic is not exactly a favorite among Americans - at least for those above the age of four. Mention poop and you can easily clear a room - or at the least, generate some unusual facial expressions, nervous laughter, and wisecracks about "too much information." But your bodily emissions are an important health topic that deserves serious attention, regardless of the "ick factor." In fact, if you ignore what you deposit in your toilet, you could be flushing your health down the drain! Did you know the average person generates about five TONS of stool in his or her lifetime? Turns out, there is much to be learned from this mountain of poop.
What The Vitamin Industry Does Not Want You To Know
May 5, 2016
Do you pick up your child's dinner plate - sigh over the untouched veggies - and then think "oh well, at least he/she takes vitamins!"? Well then, I have good news and bad news. First - and you are going to LOVE me for this.
In other words, we should be focused on getting our kids to eat BUTTER with a side of broccoli instead of the other way around!* Not only will this increase vitamin/mineral absorption from the veggies they actually do eat, it will provide the kind of fat soluble vitamins that help develop beautiful straight teeth, strong bodies and good dispositions.
What type of neck pain should I worry about?

Neck pain has been burdening the human race for centuries. It can vary from occasional discomfort to chronic and severe pain and despite the commonality of it; little progress has been made in pin-pointing the exact causes and remedies.
Even today, it can be extremely tricky to diagnose and even harder to get rid of. The primary problem with neck pain is misdiagnosis. If you do visit a doctor you will likely be pigeon-holed into another case of "chronic neck pain," a very broad and not easily remedied diagnosis.
What would chiropractic be without children?
The Chiropractic Journal
by Dr. Terry A. Rondberg
June 1, 1992
It is no surprise that many reporters still think of chiropractic as a treatment for senior citizens and blue collar workers. The concept of chiropractic for children is still new and perhaps a bit startling to the general public.
Researchers conclude, "This study has shown that children raised under chiropractic care are less prone to infectious processes such as otitis media and tonsillitis, and that their immune systems are better able to cope with allergens such as pollen, weeds, grasses, etc., as compared to children raised under allopathic care."
What You Don't Know About Salt CAN Hurt You
by Erin Ter Beest
March 10, 2014
CDC studies suggest that a lower rate of salt consumption might actually be harmful. People who consume the least amount of salt were actually found to have the highest rates of cardiovascular disease.
The most commonly known additive found in salt is iodine, which has been added to salt for almost a century in order to help prevent thyroid disease. While iodine is important to thyroid health, the iodine added to salt is not a form that is very absorbable by the body and therefore, is largely wasted. When iodine is added to salt, it is necessary for manufacturers to also add in sugar, usually in the form of corn syrup (*GMO alert*). Iodine, in the form of potassium iodide, is unstable when combined with sodium. By adding sugar to the salt/iodine combination, the manufacturer is able to prevent oxidation and keep the iodine stable. The sugar also prevents discoloration that may make salt appear unpalatable. When looking for sugar on the nutrition label for salt, look for the word "dextrose."
What's up with that job?

The musculoskeletal system - bones, muscles, ligaments and tendons - is the domain of a chiropractor, who treats patients suffering from back and neck pain, headaches, muscle pain and various other ailments.
While most of us know that chiropractors manipulate a patient's spinal column and joints, they also make diagnoses and perform treatments like massage, acupuncture and ultrasound. A chiropractor uses equipment like TENS (transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation) machines, gravity tables and traction devices to help relieve pressure on the spine. They also may advise patients on overall health issues. Chiropractors aim to help their patients avoid the use of drugs or surgery to alleviate pain.
When it's all heavy going
The Irish Times

FOR MANY of us, chiropractic care is synonymous with neck-cracking antics we would rather avoid.
We imagine that if we are already in terrible pain with a back injury or neck strain, the last thing in the world we would want to do is place any one of our seven, precious cervical vertebrae in the hands of such a therapy.
When Pain Persists: Implications of a New Chronic Pain Report
by Anthony Rosner
October 15, 2011
For far too long there has been hand-wringing over the fact that a minimum of 116 million Americans experience chronic pain every year, with a national cost ranging between $560 billion and $635 billion.
This turns out to be a conservative estimate because children and military personnel have not been included. Prevention and pain treatment are thwarted by inadequate treatment, delay or outright inaccessibility of health care.
When you catch a cold, here's how to strike it out.. quickly!
March 1, 2016
You were working all day and when you arrived home, you began to notice, something's not right. Your throat feels scratchy, head a bit dizzy, and just when you are about to figure it out, you have begun sneezing. You just catch a cold.
Everywhere you turn and touch is a source of different microorganisms that are too nasty enough, they could ruin the whole week if you don't have the best countermeasure in your arsenal. The cost that ordinary cold could inflict on the entire economy is staggering...
Why American Apples Just Got Banned In Europe
by Joe Martino
April 29, 2014
Have you ever heard of DPA, also called diphenylamine? This is a chemical used widely on apples after they have been harvested. DPA is used to prevent what the industry calls storage scald -brown spots that appear on the fruit.
As a result of tests done in 2010 by the Environmental Working Group (EWG) which found 80% of apples on US produce shelves contain on average 0.42 ppm of DPA, Europe will be cutting its imports unless DPA numbers can drastically reduce. How will North Americans respond though? With there being 4 times more DPA than what's allowable in Europe, American standards seem much more lenient and the care taken to protect citizens from hazardous chemicals is not as strict a priority.
