When you’re stressed out, it’s important to look at the big picture: Evaluate your stressful situation from a “big picture” point of view. Ask yourself “how important is this?” and “will this matter in the long run?” If the answer is no, it’s likely not worth your time and energy.


Pharmaceutical companies supply most medical journals with income (ads), and in return, these journals play a key role in suppressing studies that raise critical questions about vaccine risks (which would endanger profits). The pharmaceutical industry puts a particularly “high value on advertising its products in print journals” because journals reach doctors, the “gatekeeper between drug companies and patients.” Almost nine in ten drug advertising dollars are directed at physicians. Advertising is such an established part of journals’ income that high-end journals such as The New England Journal of Medicine (NEJM) boldly invite medical marketers to “make NEJM the cornerstone of their advertising programs,” promising “no greater assurance that your ad will be seen, read, and acted upon.” Many vaccine studies flagrantly illustrate biases and selective reporting that produce skewed write-ups that are more marketing than science. Dr. Marcia Angell, former editor-in-chief of NEJM, acknowledged that “It is simply no longer possible to believe much of the clinical research that is published, or to rely on the judgment of trusted physicians or authoritative medical guidelines.” Another favored tactic is to keep vaccine-critical studies out of medical journals altogether, either by refusing to publish them or by concocting excuses to pull articles after publication.


Be choosy about nighttime snacks. Mindless eating occurs most frequently after dinner, when you finally sit down and relax. Snacking in front of the TV is one of the easiest ways to throw your diet off course. Either close down the kitchen after a certain hour, or allow yourself a low-calorie protein.


For many seniors one of the most common problems related to aging is injuries that are associated with falling. Studies indicate that more than one third of seniors 65 and older fall each year, and that injuries related to falling can account for a large majority of the bone fractures in the elderly population. With regular chiropractic care, the risk of falls can be reduced. Such care can also provide increased balance, coordination, flexibility, mobility and strength; all of which can further reduce the possibility of bone fractures associated with falling as one grows older. Who do you know that could use chiropractic care?


Research shows that aloe vera contains a whopping 75 beneficial nutrients for the body, including choline, folic acid, alpha- tocopherol and beta-carotene. The gel also contains 19 of the 20 required amino acids and seven of the eight that are considered essential. Aloe vera is also packed with enzymes and phytonutrients that are known to be immune-boosting, antiviral and anti-inflammatory. It can help with constipation, control blood sugars, prevent stomach ulcers and help with various skin conditions!
