Opioids Are Killing Thousands Needlessly

We have all heard about the opioids crisis that is affecting the United States.  This study reveals just how crazy our addiction is.

Put this in contrast with the effectiveness of chiropractic care for a number of conditions that opioids are usually prescribed for and I just wonder WHY isn't chiropractic used as a first line of intervention?

Here is the clip with the details:

Babies Need Chiropractic Too!

I read a really cool research review that noted the amazing safety track record of chiropractic care of infants and children.

Pediatric chiropractic has become an advanced specialty of the field and Dr. Linda is one of the foremost expert in the practice.  She actually teaches the subjects to chiropractors, usually ones who already specialize in pediatrics.

Sperm Count Counts!

Sperm count is your cellular equivalent to the canary in the coal mine. The canary's demise is an early warning. When sperm count goes down, so does your overall cellular health and function. In simple terms: Normal sperm count=healthy cells=health. Low sperm count=poor cellular function=sickness and death.

Calcium? Wait 'till You Hear This!

Calcium?  Wait 'till You Hear This!

Calcium is necessary for strong bones, right?  Take calcium to prevent osteoporosis and hip fractures, right?


Worse.  Calcium supplementation is strongly associated with dementia.  That's all we need.  Broken bones and losing our minds...

Can Adjustments Make Birth Easier?

A neat study recently landed on my desk.  The findings are that when a woman gets adjusted, she gains greater control of her pelvic muscles and these muscles tend to relax more when resting.

These are the exact muscles Moms use to push a baby out and the get stretched to let the baby out.  The researchers concluded that the logical outcome would be as easy and trouble free a birth process as possible.  For mom and baby.

How bad is the media being used to manipulate you?  Really bad, that's how bad.

Here is a couple of examples that are just mind blowing.

First, what is astroturf?  Watch this Ted Talk.  It is illuminating.

Now, remember the hype about how everyone should be taking Statins?  Statins are the cholesterol lowering drugs that I have told you are bad for you for years, showing you study after study.  But there is this organized campaign to make them universal.  Crazy talk.  Astroturf!

Check out this article just published:

They don't prevent heart disease, they cause it!

Now watch; consider all the recent hysteria about measles.  A few cases, no one seriously ill, what used to be a normal part of childhood.  All this media frenzy has the hallmark of astroturf.

Now you know how someone, with something to sell you is trying to influence you.

If it sounds like hype, walks like hype... it is hype.  Crazy world.
