Taking A Holistic Approach To Chronic Pain And Inflammation....

Apr 25, 2016 by

Attention to the risks and side effects of traditional treatments for pain and inflammation has been growing among consumers and physicians for many years. It’s driven many of those affected by chronic issues such as joint pain, autoimmune disorders, arthritis, injuries, and other ailments to seek treatment alternatives. For those considering a holistic approach to pain and inflammation, there are a few important things to keep in mind: 1. Make It A Lifestyle: Chronic pain and inflammation occurs consistently for those who are affected by it. Treating it can require the same degree of attention and care. Approach holistic resources as part of an overall, complete life effort to help alleviate issues. Small changes can make a big difference, like getting more movement or changing the mattress you sleep on. 2. Do The Homework:...

Fortify Your Life: Your guide to Vitamins, Minerals and More by Dr Tieraona Low Dog. M.D....

Mar 19, 2016 by

I have been following the works of Dr. Tieraona Low Dog, M.D. for the past several years. She was a collaborator on the (at the time new) concept at the Princess Fairmont Willow Stream Spa in Scottsdale, AZ. I was intrigued by this physician of Native American decent who has the attention of Dr Andrew Weil and the tony spa I love to visit. One of her relevant works was a book in the spa store called Life is Your Medicine. Now her newest title was sitting in my mailbox a couple of months ago and I am just beginning to read it called Fortify Your Life Your Guide to Vitamins, Minerals and More. It’s published once again from National Geographic Books. I highly recommend this book; this astute MD is highly credentialed and...

AAC Journal Article – State of Vaccination Choice in Arizona...

Mar 6, 2016 by

Vaccine choice is an issue that is important to many chiropractors (and families) across the nation. Arizona is no exception. In Arizona, we are fortunate to have all three exemptions available: medical, religious, and philosophical. However, there is a trend across the nation to remove exemptions, limit exemptions or make it more difficult to obtain exemptions. The AAC recently adopted a position statement on health care freedom, which includes the vaccine choice issue. This position statement is as follows: The AAC supports an individual’s right to freedom of choice in determining health care decisions for themselves and their children based upon informed awareness of the benefits and possible adverse effects of all types of treatment. We further support medical, philosophical, and religious exemptions regarding any mandatory health care laws thereby maintaining an individual’s right...

Staying True to Your Word Power in Honesty by Madisyn Taylor for the Daily OM...

Jan 29, 2016 by

Your honest word is one of your most precious and powerful possessions. Promises are easily made. Keeping them often proves more difficult because when we are pressured to strive always for perfection, we find it simpler to agree to undertake impossible tasks than to say no. Likewise, there is an infinite array of circumstances that conspire to goad us into telling falsehoods, even when we hold a great reverence for truth. When you endeavor to consistently keep your word, however, you protect your reputation and promote yourself as someone who can be trusted to be unfailingly truthful. Though your honesty may not always endear you to others—for there will always be those who fear the truth—you can nonetheless be certain that your integrity is never tarnished by the patina of deceit. Since frankness and...

5 Paths to Better Bone Health

Jan 10, 2016 by

Five Non-Pharmaceutical Paths to Better Bone Health By Kyle Zagrodsky Bone health may not be something most people think, but it should be. Approximately 54 million Americans suffer from osteoporosis or have very low bone density, and studies show that about one in two women and one in four men age 50 and older will break a bone because of osteoporosis. Throughout the human life cycle, the body naturally loses bone and then rebuilds it. This is a continual process, and the good news is that the more active we are as young adults, the more bone density we add to our personal bone bank. The bad news is that around age 50, everyone’s ability to rebuild lost bone plummets. This is especially true for post-menopausal women, which is why women are especially prone...
