What To Expect On Your Initial Visit With The Chiropractor Plan at least an hour of your time for the first visit.
Acupuncture 5,200 Years Ago? The Tyrolean Iceman died in the Alps about 5,200 years ago, but his mummified body is exceptionally well-preserved -- so well-preserved that 15 groups of tattoo marks on his body stand out vividly. These punctures do not seem to be ornamental, like those on a sailor's biceps, nor are they on parts of the body usually displayed. What is most interesting are their locations; some groups are placed at traditional Chinese acupuncture points. Bolstering this suspicion is the determination from computer tomography (noninvasive imaging) that the Iceman suffered from arthrosis of the lumbar spine.
Jupiterimages By Kerri-Ann Jennings, M.S., R.D., Associate Editor, Nutrition for EatingWell Magazine I was a vegetarian for most of my college years, but I was not yet a nutrition major (that came in grad school). My diet in those days consisted of lots of bread, cheese, yogurt and fruit. Not surprisingly, I gained weight and became iron-deficient. Now years later and pounds lighter, I still favor a meatless diet (although not exclusively). However, as a registered dietitian and associate nutrition editor at EatingWell Magazine, I now know how to go meatless without missing out on the nutrients my body needs (nutrients in meat and fish that I can also get through certain "must-have" plant foods).
Scientists have calculated that for a period lasting one million years and beginning 1.2 million years ago, at a time when our ancestors were spreading through Africa, Europe and Asia, there were probably between 18,500 to 26,000 individuals capable of breeding (and no more than 26,000). This made them an endangered species with a smaller population than today’s species such as gorillas which number 25,000 breeding individuals and chimpanzees (21,000). Researchers have proposed a number of explanations , such as events in which a significant proportion of the population is killed or prevented from reproducing. One such event was the Toba super-volcano in Indonesia that erupted around 70,000 years ago, triggering a nuclear winter. Only an estimated 15,000 humans are thought to have survived. Another explanation is that the numbers of humans and our ancestors were chronically low throughout the last two million years, sometimes with only 10,000 breeding individuals surviving.
To illustrate how important the quality of the food you ingest on a daily basis is, just imagine your body as a perfect engine (Which it is!)
Is Your Drinking Water Safe? Fluoride Turns Drinking Water Toxic! Did you know that fluoride, known by many as the substance which helps protect teeth from tooth decay, was one of the toxic chemicals evaluated for use in the production of the atomic bomb during World War II? Fluoride is so dangerous that a family-sized tube of fluoridated toothpaste contains enough fluoride to kill a 25-pound child! The Nazi regime also allegedly planned to use fluoride to control a population in any given area by fluoridating drinking water to alter the inhabitants’ physical and mental state.
Ever had one of those days that just seemed to get started on the wrong foot… and as a result the whole day seemed ‘off’? Perhaps it had something to do with how you began the day… Isn’t it time to rethink lightning speed breakfasts of nothing but processed ‘stuff’ containing who-knows-what? Why not ADD a speedy, wholesome, energy-infused drink to your breakfast to boost the value of whatever else you eat?* No longer do you (or your child) have to sit at your desk feeling droopy or lethargic all morning because you had to get up ‘too early’ for work or school.

Homeopathy medicine information to promote safe healing at home is crucial especially these days when a trip to the doctor is more than many of us can afford, and we want a more natural form of healing without dangerous side effects. Just recently my son woke up with a harsh, barking cough loud enough to awaken the whole family. I remembered reading about it in one of my favorite homeopathy books and gave my son Aconite. Within minutes he was sleeping again and his cough went away. Once again, I was grateful for the homeopathy medicine information I have acquired over the years, and this form of medicine that is far less expensive and less dangerous than a trip to the doctor's office. So why isn't everyone using homeopathy?
The European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) has confirmed that the omega-3 fats, DHA and ALA, can benefit eye and cognitive development in babies. EFSA supported the role of these fats in fetal and newborn eye and brain development but said there was an adequate supply in breast milk. Their rejection of the need for supplementation did not please those that back omega-3 supplementation in infants and other population sub-groups. These groups say that EFSA ignored intervention studies, and did not take into account the totality of evidence before it.
Laboratory tests commissioned by the Environmental Working Group have detected bisphenol A (BPA), a plastic component and synthetic estrogen, in umbilical cord blood of American infants. Nine of 10 randomly selected samples of cord blood tested positive for BPA, an industrial petrochemical. BPA has been implicated in a lengthening list of serious chronic disorders, including cancer, cognitive and behavioral impairments, endocrine system disruption, reproductive and cardiovascular system abnormalities, diabetes, asthma and obesity. In all, the tests found as many as 232 chemicals in the 10 newborns, all of minority descent. The cord blood study has produced hard new evidence that American children are being exposed, beginning in the womb, to complex mixtures of dangerous substances that may have lifelong consequences.

Happy New Year! I breast-fed my son exclusively for the first six months of his life, and then I supplemented his meals with some homemade baby foods. For his first twelve months, most of his food was breast milk. I didn't do this out of cheapness, but I did save thousands of dollars on feeding my child.
