When dealing with stressful situations, consider this: How you feel and the way you deal with a situation is a choice. No one can drive your car unless you give them the keys. You cannot control others’ actions, but you can be responsible for your reactions. The serenity prayer states, “God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things that I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.” Knowing and applying this can be a great stress reliever.


There are 271 New Vaccines in Big Pharma’s Pipeline. Many states are currently considering (or already passed) laws criminalizing the right of refusing vaccinations on the basis of religious or philosophical beliefs. For parents whose infants’ brains and bodies are immunologically and developmentally immature, they need to be aware that if their infant dies, is sickened or is made chronically ill by vaccine ingredients, they will be forbidden to sue the guilty drug company (or the doctor that administered them) for damages, thanks to the Vaccine Injury Act of 1986. Parents need to know that many of these new vaccines will be containing contaminants (like bacterial particles, monkey kidney cell fragments, human fetal cells, peanut oil (a likely cause of the epidemic of peanut allergies), formaldehyde and aluminum, all of which are known genetic toxins and known causes of brain damage, vaccine-induced epilepsy, autoimmune disorders, the so-called “shaken baby syndrome” (now known to be a vaccine-induced encephalitis), SIDS (sudden infant death syndrome), dementia, autism spectrum disorders, mitochondrial toxicity, etc. Call your Senator/Congressman and let them know how you feel about this!


Diet Tip-Be goal-oriented: Set a tangible goal with a firm deadline. For example, schedule an 'after' photo shoot. It will help you stay motivated.


Do you know about "Text Neck?"  For every inch your head moves forward from its natural position (ear opening centered over the middle of your shoulder), it gains 10 pounds in weight as far as the muscles in your upper back and neck are concerned. This also contributes to nerve compression in your neck and upper back. This nerve compression may cause headaches at the base of the skull. Pressure on certain nerves can also mimic sinus (frontal) headaches. Rene Cailliet M.D., of the Univ. of So. Cal. states that forward head posture (FHP) can add up to thirty pounds of abnormal leverage on the cervical spine. This can pull the entire spine out of alignment. FHP may result in the loss of 30% of vital lung capacity, too. Persistent FHP puts compressive loads on the upper back and is also associated with the development of Upper Thoracic Hump (Dowager Hump). Left uncorrected, FHP will continue to get worse. Chiropractic can be very corrective for FHP by reversing the joint fixations (subluxations) and in re-invigorating the muscles that normally retract the head.


The common weed known as purslane is actually a vegetable that has extremely high levels of omega-3 fatty acids, as well as significant amounts of fiber, vitamin A, vitamin C, B-family vitamins, iron, magnesium, manganese, potassium, calcium, and copper. In traditional Chinese medicine, purslane (known as Ma Chi Xian) was widely used to treat everything from diarrhea and intestinal bleeding to hemorrhoids and dysentery and is still used today for many intestinal issues.
