There is no cracking or aggressive movement involved in NSA. Lewis and business partner Amy Gunderson focus on gentle, precise touch to your spine and the connective tissues around it. "I honestly was at a point where I was willing to try anything," said Madeline Kiefer, who calls NSA a lifesaver.
Trouble sleeping? Experts say skip antihistamines
For people who take an antihistamine such as Benadryl for a cold or allergies, drowsiness is often a welcome side effect. But a Baylor College of Medicine sleep expert cautions against turning to this type of medication as a sleep aid.
"Many allergy sufferers know that antihistamines work for their symptoms but also make them sleepy. People sometimes turn to these medications to help them sleep, even when they're not sick. But the use of medication to force children or adults to sleep is generally not the best idea," said Dr. Philip Alapat, assistant professor of medicine.

Has The Cause of Crib Death (SIDS) Been Found?
by Jane Sheppard
December 6, 2016
Sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS), also known as crib death or cot death, is the number one cause of death for infants from one month to one year of age. 90% of all SIDS deaths are in babies under six months old.
Dr. James Sprott, OBE, a New Zealand scientist and chemist, states that crib death is caused by toxic gases, which can be generated from a baby's mattress. He says chemical compounds containing phosphorus, arsenic and antimony have been added to mattresses as fire retardants and for other purposes since the early 1950's. A fungus that commonly grows in bedding can interact with these chemicals to create poisonous gases (Richardson 1994).

December 5, 2016
Have you already heard about the traditional oregano spice for Mediterranean diet? The Latin name of the plant, dried leaves of which Italians willingly add to your pizza - is «Origanum majorana». Strictly speaking, this is wild oregano.
But today we will focus on other species of the family Lamiaceae. Meet oregano (lat. «Origanum vulgare»), - the oil of this plant. It has amazing beneficial properties, some of which was known centuries ago. The ancient Greeks, for example, called oregano as "The pleasure of the mountain" and used it for the treatment of infectious diseases.

"If in doubt, try nutrition first."
by Dr. Andrew Saul
"Most epileptics are magnesium deficient. I wish I had found this out 40 years ago. Now I can even drive a car and ride a bike. It is so wonderful not to have seizures anymore plus not have to depend on drugs all the time and of course be free of drugs.
Sarah and her fiancé Richard wanted to have children as soon as they were married. Sarah had just been diagnosed with epilepsy, however, and was offered Phenobarbital as therapy. She and Richard read up on the drug, and now knew, as did their doctor, that pregnancy while taking a barbiturate was not ideal. "So we want to look into other options," Sarah said to me in the office. "Could vitamins replace the drug?"
