"You have it easily in your power to increase the sum total of this world's happiness now. How? By giving a few words of sincere appreciation to someone who is lonely or discouraged. Perhaps you will forget tomorrow the kind words you say today, but the recipient may cherish them over a lifetime." Dale Carnegie -


A study published in the European Journal of Clinical Microbiology and Infectious Diseases, found that honey destroyed every bacteria or pathogen they tested it on. It can be applied topically and taken internally. “Our research is the first to clearly show that these honey-based products could in many cases replace antibiotic creams on wounds and equipment such as catheters. Using honey as an intermediate treatment could also prolong the life of antibiotics.” Turmeric is another natural miracle with a myriad of health benefits. Its most important compounds are called curcuminoids, and it has powerful healing, antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, antiseptic, antibacterial and anti-fungal properties. The combination of these two is the most powerful antibiotic we can use. It is also known as Golden Honey and has been commonly used in Ayurveda medicine for thousands of years. Combining turmeric with honey enhances its anti-microbial activity. Together they can act against many bacterial and fungal strains known to cause infections in humans. Recipe: 1 teaspoon ground turmeric (therapeutic quality), ¼ cup raw honey, 2 drops lemon essential oil (optional): Mix ingredients, stir well, and cover. Store the mixture at room temperature, and stir before each use. To fight the flu or a cold, take half a teaspoon of the mixture, several times daily.


Diet Tip: Choose vegetables without a lot of added fat:  Creamed spinach, cauliflower fritters, and zucchini chips are more of a fat than they are a vegetable. Choose simply prepared vegetables and fill up on them, as they tend to have the least calories.


Chiropractic care’s side effects are largely positive effects. Virtually every intervention can have an “unintended consequence” or “adverse reaction.” Even chiropractic. Fortunately, these are overwhelmingly positive, even if unintended. For example, a person whose allergies improve after receiving chiropractic care for headaches. Or the person whose indigestion disappears after receiving chiropractic care for back pain. Or the expectant mother whose restored fertility seems to have coincided with her chiropractic care for low back pain. And the list goes on and on… The danger when seeing these frequent associations is to make the leap that chiropractic treats allergies, indigestion and fertility. Of course chiropractic doesn’t treat anything. However, with a revived nervous system, just about anything is possible. Even the relief of headaches and back pain!

PEACE: It does not mean to be in a place where there is no noise, trouble or hard work. It means to be in the midst of those things and still be calm in your heart. ~unknown
