Michigan Chiropractors Win Class Status Against Blue Cross and Blue Care Network
In Michigan Association of Chiropractors and Toby A. Mitchell, DC, v. Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan, the MAC asserts that our members who are or have been participating providers with BCBSM have been harmed because BCBSM has engaged in a practice of not paying chiropractic providers for covered chiropractic services, while paying other non-chiropractic providers for providing the same services. We further assert that MAC members who are not, and have not been, participating providers have been damaged by being discouraged from entering into provider contracts with BCBSM by these same policies, which we believe to be in violation of not only Michigan law, but also the individual provider contracts themselves and the 1999 Settlement Agreement.
Is Food Packaging Affecting Your Health?
by Marcelle Pick, OB-GYN N.P.
May 19, 2011
Most of us are genuinely trying to do our best to be healthy -- we buy organic food, try to drink filtered water and include more fruits and vegetables with every meal. But what about the packaging surrounding our food?
Chemicals like Bisphenol A (BPA), phthalates and PCV (polyvinyl chloride) have all been found in plastic food packaging, the linings of soda cans and canned food. These chemicals, often referred to as endocrine disruptors, do much more than simply help to protect and contain our food. They can mimic our natural hormones, turning on or off the body's native hormone signals to block natural responses or trigger excessive action.

by Jessica Cohen
Doctors nowadays would likely diagnose Einstein with attention deficit disorder, chiropractor Dr. Susan Cunico told a small group of parents, mostly mothers, assembled at Belle Reve senior facility in Milford.
The symptoms include "constant talking, inattention, fidgeting, and blurting out," said Cunico, who practices in Sandyston, N.J.

Turn to kinesiology tape for 'treatment between treatment'
by Amy Verner
Since last week, people have been asking whether I have been sporting some stylish, new body art. In fact, I have had my foot and ankle covered in SpiderTech kinesiology tape to help heal a soft-tissue injury.
But while I am new to the world of kinesiology tape, kinesiology tape is not new to the world. But while I am new to the world of kinesiology tape, kinesiology tape is not new to the world.

It also may offer some relief for cancer patients suffering from lymphedema.

by Dr. Michael Jones
Chiropractors and pediatricians agree backpacks are a problem for a child's spine.
It is usually not the backpack by itself that causes the issues, but rather the improper carrying of the bag as well as overloading that can lead to headaches and neck, shoulder and lower-back pain. The question that arises with backpacks is how heavy is too heavy?
