Carpal Tunnel Syndrome Sufferers Can Find Relief in Cold Laser Therapy
by Rachel Krech
August 8, 2007
People who suffer from painful carpal tunnel syndrome symptoms may have a new way to fight the pain. A new technology known as "cold laser therapy" could reduce the pain caused by the disease.
What cold laser therapy actually does is that it speeds up the healing process after injury to fingers, hands, and wrists. When one of these areas is injured, it creates an accumulation of watery fluid in tissue spaces, which causes extreme and painful swelling. It can also lead to long-time soreness from an injury that happened years ago.
The Dangerous Toxin in Your Home: Triclosan
by Dr. Craig A. Maxwell
August 18, 2016
Do you slather on hand sanitizer and use antibacterial hand soap? If so, you could be setting yourself up for neurological and autoimmune disease.
If your New Year's Resolution was to quit smoking, lose weight, and start eating healthier; congratulations, you're well on your way to living a longer, healthier life. Unfortunately, even if you're eating the best diet and working out regularly, you could still be setting yourself up for serious disease from a dangerous toxin you willingly use each and every day. That toxin is called Triclosan and if you carry around a small bottle of antibacterial gel in your purse or glove compartment, you may be slathering it on each and every day. You'll want to check that anti-bacterial gel, and many other products in your home, to make sure they do not contain this toxic substance.
10 Nail Symptoms and What They Mean for Your Health
by Joseph Mercola
November 5, 2016
Nails are often regarded as a purely aesthetic feature, and the $768 million spent annually on nail polish (in the U.S. alone) can attest to that.1 Yet, your nails are far more than a platform for bright colors and nail art.
The shape, texture, and color of your natural nails act as a window into your body, and while some nail symptoms are harmless, others can be indicative of chronic diseases, including cancer. As noted by the American Academy of Dermatology (AAD): "Nails often reflect our general state of health. Changes in the nail, such as discoloration or thickening, can signal health problems including liver and kidney diseases, heart and lung conditions, anemia, and diabetes."
Herbal Oil: Comfrey Oil Benefits and Uses
November 4, 2016
Comfrey, while considered an important herbal medicine, is controversial due to its toxic components which led to the banning of oral products. The dilemma is how to weigh the virtues of Comfrey oil while considering the safety concerns that surround it.
It has exhibited the potential to treat skin concerns and pain when used topically. Learn about comfrey oil and its practical applications, as well as its potential contribution to skin healing and maintenance.
The Many Health Benefits of Coenzyme Q10 and Ubiquinol
by Dr. Mercola
September 8, 2016
Coenzyme Q10 and ubiquinol are two vitally important supplements that many are still unaware of. Risa Schulman, Ph.D., is a biologist and functional food expert who has spent the last two decades researching these and other supplements.
Ubiquinol is the reduced version of coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10, aka ubiquinone). They're actually the same molecule, but when CoQ10 is reduced it takes on two electrons, which turns it into what we call ubiquinol.
In your body, this conversion occurs thousands of times every second inside your mitochondria — the "engine" of each cell in which energy is produced
"The reason it does this flipping back and forth between these two forms of the molecule is that this is part of the process that helps us to change our food into energy," Schulman explains.
"This is very important to healthy functioning, and obviously important for all muscles, in particular your heart muscle, which works hardest of all the muscles."
Why the Use of Glyphosate in Wheat Has Increased Celiac Disease
September 14, 2014
The use of glyphosate, the active ingredient in the broad-spectrum herbicide Roundup, has dramatically risen over the past 15 years, right in step with the use of GE crops.
Dr. Anthony Samsel and Dr. Seneff produced some phenomenal research1 on this connection, which was published in December last year. Previously, she has investigated the relationship between glyphosate and the development of a wide array of modern diseases, including autism. She believes that glyphosate may in fact act as a transporter for aluminum (a common vaccine adjuvant) into the brain. It also appears to transport arsenic into the kidneys. For more in-depth information on this glyphosate-autism link, please listen to the full version of Dr. Seneff's interview.
Chicago Bulls: Derrick Rose's back feeling good
by K.C. Johnson
February 22, 2012
For Derrick Rose's back pain to stay away, the routine must remain. Thus, Rose admitted he will continue to visit Stuart Yoss, the Bannockburn-based chiropractor he thanked by name on TV.
Injury update: C.J. Watson missed his second straight game after suffering a mild concussion from his collision with the Nets' Kris Humphries on Saturday. The NBA implemented a new concussion policy in December. To be cleared, a player must remain symptom-free through increasing tests of exertion. Then, a league-hired neurologist must clear the player.
What science tells us about the safety of genetically modified foods
by John Timmer
October 4, 2013
Many aspects of modern technology make people a bit uneasy, but genetically modified foods may be in a class by themselves. Labs all around the world make genetic modifications of organisms-bacteria, plants, and animals-365 days a year.
And some of the results of that work have been ingested by humans for years, often in the form of life-saving drugs. But genetically modified crops remain controversial around the globe, and while they're commonly used in the US, they have almost no presence in the European market. The worries about GMO foods largely focus on their safety, but much of the debate ignores the extensive studies that have been done to understand both the potential risks and what we've learned about them. In response to this perceived gap in understanding, a group of Italian scientists have now performed a comprehensive review of the scientific literature on GMO crops (we were made aware of the review by Real Clear Science). The results suggest that GMO crops are safe for us, but there are some remaining concerns about their environmental impact that need to be nailed down. In the meantime, the authors suggest that GMOs represent a serious challenge for science communication with the public.
Studies suggest chiropractic care can help dyslexia
September 3, 2008
Studies suggest chiropractic care can help dyslexia, specific exercises appear to "train" the cerebellum to respond normally to information.
There are several case studies that show the benefit of chiropractic care in treating children with dyslexia. The chiropractic approach is based on two models. The first is the vertebral subluxation/hemisphericity, which hypothesized to be a potential consequence of central nervous system dysfunction. The second model is vertebral subluxation/neurologic disorganization. This model is based on a theory that children with dyslexia and learning disabilities have a functional disturbance to the appropriate organization of higher centers of the central nervous system.
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.
