Children and Alternative Remedies

Children and Alternative Remedies

A new study shows that today, children under the age of 18 are taking advantage of alternative remedies much more often. These alternative remedies include chiropractic adjustments, vitamin and mineral supplements and regular exercises such as yoga. Though often it’s the parent who insists on these types of treatments, kids are more likely to stay on these routines taught to them by their parents at an early age. Millennials are a good example of this. This group was born between the early 80’s and the year 2000 and they are much more health conscious than previous generations. This could be the result of good teaching from their parents, but it may also be simple common sense. People now seem to be experiencing more serious health problems at earlier...

Dealing with Acute Sinusitis? Chiropractic Can Help With That

Dealing with Acute Sinusitis? Chiropractic Can Help With That

Sinusitis has become fairly common, especially if you live in a highly polluted area around factories and chemical plants. Sometimes this starts out as a simple stuffy nose and develops into a sinus infection. Common symptoms are dense nasal mucous, facial pain, fever and a plugged nose. Some people suffer with a sore throat and cough as well. Many of us don’t go to the doctor for a sinus infection anymore. We just buy an over the counter sinus medication and take that for a week. This often works but sometimes, you will need to see your doctor and get on prescription medication. This illness has become more common due to air pollution, our American diet, allergies and air-borne bacteria, just to name a few. You might have fever at times, but normally you have...

Common Causes of Headaches

Common Causes of Headaches

Everyone has a headache from time to time. It’s usually brought on by stress. We get too busy going in too many directions, and then suddenly, your head hurts. Most of us reach for a few over the counter pain relievers like Motrin or Advil and this takes care of it. But there are many other causes of headache and children are now experiencing headaches almost as frequently as adults. Primary headaches are brought on by over activity or dysfunction in the pain sensitive regions of the brain. Secondary headaches can be caused by just about anything. Though we can get used to the common headache, the truth is that you shouldn’t get headaches daily, on a regular basis. If you are, then see your doctor. There might be an underlying cause. Below are just a few of...

How A Compromised Immune System Can Affect Our Health

How A Compromised Immune System Can Affect Our Health

So much has been said about how poor the overall health of our nation is and it’s nothing anymore to hear of young people getting all forms of cancer. One of the leading factors is a compromised immune system. Our immune system was designed to fight off infectious diseases. Sometimes that means a simple cold or the flu, but it can also mean the lack of ability for our bodies to fight off serious diseases. With a compromised immune system, our bodies have a limited capacity to fight off harmful substances. And we do encounter harmful toxins each day simply from breathing the air. In addition, many people work around chemicals, x-ray machines, bacteria, viruses and many others. The human body is supposed to be able to fight these toxins, but someone with a...

Choosing Natural Healing Methods Over Big Pharma

Choosing Natural Healing Methods Over Big Pharma

For years now, the battle has raged over whether chiropractic care is indeed a viable option for help to heal the human body. Today, more and more people are beginning to understand how important it is to make the necessary lifestyle adjustments and live healthy. Why? Because simply taking drugs for what ails you is just not working. The big pharmaceutical companies want us all to take a pill for whatever hurts. They’re making billions of dollars each year. Though there is a time and place for certain drugs, we can’t just take a pill every time we have a new symptom. The huge increase in natural remedies has come after years of people trying to take the other route and then realizing that they were only treating symptoms while ignoring the root cause of the...
