What Happens if You Only Drink Soda vs. Water?
by Melodie Anne
November 9, 2015
Drinking too much soda can cause an array of negative effects in your body, even if you drink diet soda. Carbonated soda drinks do not contain any beneficial nutrients, but typically contribute excessive calories and sugar to your diet.
High levels of caffeine in some sodas may lead to dehydration. Caffeine is a natural diuretic and causes your body to excrete fluid through urine. Since caffeinated sodas can make you need to use the restroom frequently, do not consume them if you are exercising or if you live in a hot climate.
12 health benefits of apple cider vinegar

Legend has is that Cleopatra once dissolved a pearl in a measure of vinegar before drinking the concoction, thus winning a wager against Marc Antony that she could spend a fortune on a single meal.
Truth or apocrypha, we may never know, but the Queen of the Nile most likely knew the special qualities of vinegar. Since 5,000 BC, the Babylonians had been using it as a preservative and condiment; and long before Cleopatra's costly cocktail, Hippocrates had extolled vinegar's medicinal qualities. In fact, the Vinegar Institute touts the tart liquid as one of our earliest remedies.

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.

With every hand movement, secretary Pat Brigode would flinch at sharp pains she said reminded her of a thick rubber band being pulled and snapped hard. "We added light therapy to my other treatments, and I felt immediate relief," she said."
Professional sports teams and college athletic departments -- including those at Pitt, Penn State and Indiana University of Pennsylvania -- are using light therapy for healing and pain relief. Nursing homes use it to speed wound healing and ease the ache in arthritic joints. Physical therapists and chiropractors say it also works for bursitis, backaches and other muscle and joint pains.
Gluten Intolerance and the Herbicide Glyphosate: A National Epidemic
by Martin michener
August 21, 2014
Everyone has noticed the recent rise of gluten intolerance. Grocery store shelves are now lined with products which avoid using gluten in any form.
But we still have little idea why this food allergy has swept through our population to produce such widespread problems. Articles associate it with celiac disease (sprue) and leaky gut, in which undigested food proteins are allowed to enter the blood stream, causing numerous inflammatory problems. Gluten sensitive friends and family of mine have tried eating USDA organic wheat products. Some have had positive results, others still cannot tolerate gluten from any source.
Pregnancy and Chiropractic
by Martha Collins, D.C.
February 6, 2005
As I write this today, two of our beautiful practice members are awaiting the arrival of new additions to their families. Adjusting women through pregnancy is one of the most rewarding parts of our work, because a healthier pregnancy means an easier labou
On Monday night at our workshop, a young woman told the story of the traumatic birth of her son, and the subsequent eight years of poor health he has suffered as a result. She was unaware that Chiropractic care through pregnancy would have given him a better start, and angry that she didn't know this prior to her son's conception. I promised her I'd get the word out. This article is dedicated to her and her son with the intent that this information will prevent another mother and child years of heartbreak.
The Definitive Guide to Oils
by Mark Sisson
February 8, 2017
Before you can hope to make it as a speculator and start slingin' barrels for big money, you've got to understand exactly what's gushing forth from the earth's crust.
Today's post is actually about edible oils. Well, they're all technically edible - they can all be swallowed and digested - but as for being palatable, let alone healthful? That remains to be seen. Not all oils are created equal, especially given the fact that most of the ones people use nowadays are actually created in an industrial laboratory. No oil "exists naturally," mind you. Olive oil isn't harvested by leaving open containers under leaking, dripping olives on the branch, nor is that liquid sloshing around inside a coconut pure oil. I'm not trying to disparage processing in and of itself.
Why Magnesium is the Most Powerful Relaxation Mineral Known to Man
by Mark Hyman

Magnesium is one of the most beneficial minerals you can supplement with most individuals are deficient. Learn more about the health benefits of magnesium.
I find it very funny that more doctors aren't clued in to the benefits of magnesium, because we use it all the time in conventional medicine. But we never stop to think about why or how important it is to our general health or why it helps our bodies function better. I remember using magnesium when I worked in the emergency room. It was a critical "medication" on the crash cart. If someone was dying of a life-threatening arrhythmia (or irregular heart beat), we used intravenous magnesium. If someone was constipated or needed to prepare for colonoscopy, we gave them milk of magnesia or a green bottle of liquid magnesium citrate, which emptied their bowels.
Chiropractic care can be kids' stuff
by Marissa Harshman

Rhett Earhart lies calmly as chiropractor Cecelia Mikles runs her hands down his spine. When Mikles reaches the bottom of his spine, she notices a little curve to the left. She extends Rhett's legs so they're straight and checks their length.
Rhett, who is 13 months old, is just learning to walk. But he's been a patient of Mikles since he was just 6 days old. "I just want him to be healthy," Dearey said. The Vancouver mom isn't alone in that desire, nor is she alone in seeking infant chiropractic care. A 2007 study estimates there are 30 million pediatric chiropractic visits each year.
