Reassessing Flu Shots as the Season Draws Near
by Roni Caryn Rabin
November 5, 2012
A report released last month said influenza vaccinations provide only modest protection for healthy young and middle-age adults, and little if any protection for those 65 and older.
It's flu-shot season, and public health officials are urging everyone over 6 months of age to get one. Many businesses provide on-site flu shots, and some hospitals have told staff members that they have to wear masks if they do not get the vaccine. By 2020, United States health leaders want 80 percent of the population to get yearly shots. For vaccine manufacturers, it's a bonanza: Influenza shots - given every year, unlike many other vaccines - are a multibillion-dollar global business. But how good are they?
Therapeutic Results Achieved with the Class IV Laser
by Robert L. Wertz, PhD
October 27, 2006
The trend in laser therapy for the past 10 years has been to increase power density and dose, since this has been shown to improve therapeutic outcomes considerably.
Controlled clinical studies have demonstrated that while laser therapy is effective for some specific applications, the most common reason for poor clinical outcomes is related to low power or dosage.
On the Bright Side
ADVANCE for Directors in Rehabilitation
by Robert E. Post, PT, PhD
April 10, 2007
An evidence-based look at laser therapy shows promise for musculoskeletal conditions.
As early as the 1960s, Endre Mester studied the effects of low-energy argon and helium-neon lasers on the behavior of biological tissues and cells, both in vivo and in vitro. In the following decade, researchers Freidrich Plog and Joseph Skovajsa presented data on the positive effects of low-energy lasers for wound healing, pain relief and laser acupuncture.
Could GMOs Be Behind Your Digestive Problems?
by Rhonda Burns
June 22, 2014
Do you have digestive problems? Don't wait for science to sort it out, do your own test on the GMO effects on your health.
Genetically modified organisms are in an estimated 80% of the processed foods in our grocery stores, and some say they're responsible for the growing number of people suffering from a wide variety of symptoms, particularly digestive issues. Take the alleged possibility of a connection between GMO foods and intestinal hyperpermeability, or leaky gut syndrome, for example. Leaky gut syndrome results when tight junctions, which help to maintain a barrier in the gut, are altered or damaged, and unwanted toxins, microbes, undigested food or even waste pass into the bloodstream.
Evidence-Based Proof Elderberry Syrup Is Better Than The Flu Shot
by Restored 316
February 9, 2017
But what offends ME is that the flu shot was only a pathetic 23% effective in 2014-2015 and the general public will still willingly back up the vaccine.
Even though the facts remain that the flu shot risk carries tremendous risk and injures countless victims, people still back it up and stick out their arms. And even though the flu MIST is a LIVE VIRUS and has the ability to shed and infect others with the flu (For up to 21 days!), people STILL run into the pharmacy and open their nostrils!
Man-Made Drought: A Guide To California's Water Wars
by Rep. Devin Nunes
June 12, 2015
For decades, extreme environmentalists have tried to remove 1.3 million acres of California farmland from production by depriving farmers of water.
From Merced all the way down to Bakersfield, and on the entire west side of the Valley as well as part of the east side, productive agriculture would end and the land would return to some ideal state of nature. I was stunned by the vicious audacity of their goal - and I quickly learned how dedicated they were to realizing it. Much of the media and many politicians blame the San Joaquin Valley's water shortage on drought, but that is merely an aggravating factor. From my experience representing California's agricultural heartland, I know that our water crisis is not an unfortunate natural occurrence; it is the intended result of a long-term campaign waged by radical environmentalists who resorted to political pressure as well as profuse lawsuits.

This is not a month for slouchers
Inside Bay Area
by Ray Orrock
May 6, 2005
This is National Correct Posture Month. The American Chiropractic Association, wishes "to broaden public awareness of the importance of correct posture as an integral part of everyday health care."
I tried sitting up straight when all those teachers told me to, but it never took. I've since pretty much resigned myself to slouching through life, shoulders relaxed, head down.
Coconut Oil Reverses the Effects of Alzheimer's in 50 Year Old Woman
by Raul Lora-Zamorano
February 6, 2014
Simple and routine tasks were becoming frustrating and burdensome. The symptoms persisted and soon the memory issue raised its head. At first it was sporadic, however it began to progress almost in a geometric fashion.
I opened my laptop and started to think. I remembered a friend commenting several years back that his father-in-law who suffered from Alzheimer's had benefitted from some sort of oil. I opened Google search, typed in Alzheimer's, oil. That was it. What followed was a genuine "Eureka!" moment. Up came a literal Tsunami of search results. At first I was bewildered: which should I look at first? Everywhere I looked the words "coconut oil" were staring me in the face. To this day I cannot tell you where I read first. Suffice to say that when I looked up it was 6AM.
