Happy Family


Research has found that people who watched just three minutes of negative news in the morning were 27% more likely to report their day as “unhappy” six to eight hours later, compared to people who watched uplifting stories. Other studies have had similar results: Negative TV can translate to real-life negative emotions. How do wish to start your day?


A new peer-reviewed scientific paper published in the journal Tropical Diseases, Travel Medicine and Vaccines has found that the DTaP vaccine for diphtheria, tetanus, and pertussis (whooping cough) is causing children who receive it to become more prone to contracting whooping cough later on in life. According to the study, children who receive the entire DTaP series of vaccinations are up to 15 times more likely to contract whooping cough at the five-year mark following these jabs compared to unvaccinated children. This completely obliterates the myth that whooping cough outbreaks are the result of “anti-vaxxers.” The vast majority of children being affected by pertussis outbreaks are vaccinated children, which some health authorities are reluctantly admitting. Even so, pro-vaxxers are insistent that all disease spread is caused by unvaccinated children, despite the fact that science continues to prove otherwise. The DTaP vaccine, along with many other vaccines, fails to provide permanent protection against disease. It would be better if children weren’t vaccinated with DTaP vaccines at all because research shows that they actually increase susceptibility to disease after the antigens have all worn off.


Diet Tip: Have a light starter course such as a salad or hot low fat soup, before diving into your entree as this will make you eat less. Ensure not to drown the salad in high fat dressings and avoid the heavy cream based soups.


This is a case study of a 30-year-old female with a clinical diagnosis of depression and anxiety. She went to a chiropractic office for care. It was confirmed that she had vertebral subluxations (spinal misalignments). She had a loss of the normal neck curve (which is fairly common these days) along with anterior head carriage (forward head posture) and dysautonomia (a disorder of the autonomic nervous system –ANS) were found. Under chiropractic care the patient’s anxiety and depression resolved, her sleep, energy and quality of life improved and she was able to stop taking medications for these symptoms. Her neck curve improved, anterior head carriage and dysautonomia were reduced. Conclusion: This woman experienced positive mental health outcomes following chiropractic care coupled with a reduction in vertebral subluxation and related dysautonomia. Who do you know that could benefit from Chiropractic care?
