The Pros And Cons Of Using A Chiropractor Part 3

The Pros And Cons Of Using A Chiropractor Part 3

Apr 21, 2014 by

How does the cost effectiveness of chiropractic care compare to medical care for musculoskeletal conditions? This is important to keep in mind when visiting a chiropractor. You also need to recognize the limitations of chiropractic care for a number of health conditions for which chiropractic is often performed. In this article I will also discuss the safety concerns of spinal manipulation. Cost Effectiveness Of Chiropractic Care A 2004 study [1] evaluated access to chiropractic care for back pain and concluded that because it is more effective and less invasive than traditional medicine, it may reduce overall health costs. The authors reported that patients with chiropractic insurance...

The Pros And Cons Of Using A Chiropractor, Part 2

Apr 14, 2014 by

The scientific research on the benefits and limitations of chiropractic care substantiates the effectiveness of chiropractic care for musculoskeletal conditions. However, studies show there are other health conditions that chiropractors cannot handle very well. The Scientific Literature Supporting Chiropractic Chiropractic is a natural, medication-free, nonsurgical form of healthcare for the diagnosis, treatment and even prevention of musculoskeletal system disorders. Chiropractic affects nerves exiting the spinal column that innervates other body organs. Additionally, your chiropractor likely has valuable nutrition training and may have picked up acupuncture or other skills along the...

The Pros And Cons Of Using A Chiropractor, Part 1

Apr 07, 2014 by

Chiropractors and medical doctors have never really seen eye to eye. But because chiropractors offer a holistic approach to healthcare, they have become family physicians to many people in America. And medical research does support many of their practices. Even so, medical doctors have traditionally complained that chiropractic care lacks scientific evidence. In rebuttal, chiropractors have asked medical doctors to take a look at their results and the scientific data that has been published. In my next few articles I’ll explain chiropractic training, philosophy and methodologies in general. I’ll examine chiropractic care fairly so you can know what to expect from this intervention...
Eliminate Constipation, Part 4

Eliminate Constipation, Part 4

Mar 31, 2014 by

Constipation can be a serious issue. To solve it and help you stay healthy, it’s important to take a deep look at bowel and body cleansing as a way to eliminate causes of constipation and the progression of chronic diseases. The Toxic Load And Constipation Connection Reversing constipation permanently can become more than just a simple fix. As I’ve pointed out previously, consuming larger quantities of dietary fiber should offer a significant long-term improvement. If fiber doesn’t reverse your constipation, there are many natural and prescription medicines to get your bowels moving. However, you may still be plagued with constipation. And unless you can cleanse your...

Escape Constipation Naturally, Part 3

Mar 24, 2014 by

There are safe and effective ways to reverse constipation. Lifestyle, natural supplements and prescription medications, along with bowel/body cleansing and detoxification methods, help many people. Dietary Treatment For Constipation In 2004, it was reported that 5.3 million prescription medications were written by physicians to treat constipation. [1] There are several natural ways to reverse constipation that you should consider before taking a prescription drug for it. Let’s first look at dietary lifestyle. In January 2011, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) came out with dietary recommendations. [2] In concept, I am quite happy that they wrote,...

Don’t Make These Constipation Mistakes

Mar 17, 2014 by

It’s generally recognized that constipation is having a bowel movement less than once daily. But because the large intestine (colon) reabsorbs water during this time, the longer stool sits there, the harder and dryer it can become. This contributes to painful bowel movements and impaction of fecal matter. And it can eventually lead to complications like megacolon, hemorrhoids, anal fissures or rectal prolapse. Moreover, stool contains chemicals that were just previously detoxified by the liver and excreted with the bile (water insoluble molecules) and that were intended for elimination from the body. The longer stool sits in the colon, the more likely it is that these unwanted...

Don’t Let Constipation Ruin Your Health

Mar 10, 2014 by

Constipation is much more than just a bothersome symptom. It has serious, long-term, adverse effects on your body, producing complications and increasing the risk of chronic inflammatory diseases. Constipation Difficulties Constipation affects 12 percent to 19 percent of the adult population in North America, between 42 and 63 million people. [1] It affects women two to three times more than men. That could be because pregnancy and pregnancy-related pelvic changes contribute to the problem. Constipation also increases dramatically as you age and is especially problematic after age 65. At the same age that constipation becomes more of an issue, so does cardiovascular disease,...
Superfood Supplements

Superfood Supplements

Mar 03, 2014 by

There are several types of supplements that are so beneficial, just about everyone should be taking them. And if you suffer one of a number of common illnesses and conditions, certain targeted supplements may also be well worth your time. Superfood Supplements The title “superfoods” can sound arrogant to some of you. I believe these fruits and herbs deserve this title because of their extremely high concentrations of healing properties. These properties have been extensively studied for decades and proven to reduce disease when provided in food. Superfood supplementation goes far beyond the benefits of synthetic vitamins and minerals. My favorite superfood powder contains...
Only The Right Vitamins Can Save Your Heart And Fight Cancer

Only The Right Vitamins Can Save Your Heart And Fight Cancer

Feb 24, 2014 by

In thinking about dietary supplements, you have to keep in mind that there’s a big difference between synthetic vitamins and whole food vitamins. You also have to remember that your health can be improved with the power of superfood nutrients, too. Is Every Vitamin Really A Worthwhile Vitamin? Big retailers like Costco and GNC would have you believe all vitamins are equal. Not so. It’s a bit like the situation with white bread and sprouted wheat: They are both called “grains,” but they certainly create different health effects. Similarly, synthetic vitamins are not the whole, complex vitamins that nature provides. I believe that this explains the failure of vitamins A, C...

Save Your Life With Supplements

In my previous article, I discussed the large published studies in which supplementation with vitamins A, C and E; beta carotene; and selenium apparently failed to provide health improvements. This has led scientists to what is now called the antioxidant paradox, which I’ll explain in a moment. While large studies have demonstrated inconclusive results of multivitamin use, I can direct you to the nutrient supplements that have clearly been shown to be effective in reducing a variety of chronic illnesses. Antioxidant Paradox Preliminary science has consistently proven the mechanism and beneficial effects of antioxidants in reversing disease processes for many years prior to these...
