DRUG THOTS

Antidepressant Use Rising Among Kids
A November 18, 2004 Reuters News story with the above headline starts off by noting that according to a new study doctors are prescribing more antidepressants for children and adolescents although there is little evidence about their safety or efficacy in youngsters.

Dr. Ian Wong of the Centre for Pediatric Pharmacy Research at the University of London was one of the several researchers who conducted the study. They compared prescribing trends in Britain, France, Germany, Spain, Canada, the United States, Argentina, Brazil and Mexico by using information from an international database that contains a representative sample of medical practitioners in each country. Dr. Wong noted that Britain had the highest rate of increase with 68 percent while Germany. with thirteen percent, had the lowest. He commented, "The number of prescriptions in different countries for children with mental illness is increasing."

Take A Deep Breath

Want to boost your health? Here's a simple solution: Take a breath. Your lungs are larger at the bottom than the top, but most Americans are "top breathers." We live in a shallow breaths common to the sick and sleeping.

Learn to breathe from the gut. You know you are breathing correctly--from your diaphragm-- if you see your stomach move in and out. if the only thing that moves or expands is your chest, then you are still taking only shallow breaths.

Deep breathing literally massages and moves the soft internal organs inside your rib cage, allowing your lymphatic system to rid itself of collected toxins. Only deep breathing allows you to tap this bonus power in your lower lungs. Singers, stage performers, broadcast announcers, and professional athletes pay great sums to voice and dialogue coaches to learn how to breathe and project through diaphragm breathing. With some practice, you too can take advantage of your lungs' full power.

The Antibiotic and Asthma Link

The Antibiotic and Asthma Link  When scientists at the university of British Columbia analyzed data from eight studies on antibiotics and asthma, they found that children who received even one dose of antibiotics within their first 12 months had double the risk of developing asthma later on. Each additional dose upped the possibility by 16 percent. 
The researchers theorize that use of these drugs decreases natural exposure to germs and overstimulates the immune system's response to allergens, which may lead to asthma.
"There are a lot of childhood viral infections such as bronchitis that are being over-treated with antibiotics. This study is more evidence that antibiotics should be used only when necessary," says lead study author Carlo Marra, PhD.

5 Essentials For Proper Bowel Function And Elimination
How to GO on a regular basis
1. Salt.  Here we are NOT talking about table salt, or the sodium found in packaged foods.  For proper muscle contraction and movement your bowel needs ¼ to ½ teaspoon of Premier Pink Salt (or another high mineral, high quality salt) each day.
2. Fiber.  Fruits, vegetables, nuts and whole grains act like a broom, cleaning out your colon.  They make stools softer and easier to pass, thereby reducing straining and hemorrhoids.

3. Water.  You should drink half your body weight in ounces of water each day.  So if you weigh 100lbs, you would require 50 ounces or about a liter and a half.  You will need to drink more water if you have had any of the following de-hydrating beverages – alcohol, coffee, soda or if you have been sweating a lot from heat or exercise.
4. Digestive enzymes.   Whenever you eat a cooked meal, it is important to supplement with some digestive enzymes to help your body break down the pa…

WHAT WE GET WHEN WE GIVE

By Christine Carter, PHD

Did you know that kinder people actually live longer, healthier lives? People who volunteer tend to experience fewer aches and pains. Giving help to others protects overall health. People 55 and older who volunteer for two or more organizations have an impressive 44% lower likelihood of dying-and that's after sifting out every other contributing factor, and many more. This means that volunteering is nearly as beneficial to our health as quitting smoking!




It isnt just that kind of people also tend to be healthier and happier, or that happy , healthy people are more kind. Experiments have actually demonstrated again and again that kindness toward others actually causes us to be happier, improves our health, and lengthens our lives.

We feel so good when we give because we get what researchers call a "helpers high," or a distinct physical sensation associated with helping. About half of participants in one study report that they feel stronger and mor…

HOW DO I GET WELL?

There are 2 reasons people get sick:

          1. They are deficient in a requirement to express health. This could be a vitamin or mineral. It could be water or oxygen. It could be movement of the body.

          2. They have something toxic in their system. This could be withheld anger. It could be artificial colors from foods. It could be drugs, alcohol, caffeine, or nicotine.

These are chronic stressors. So how do we get and stay well? Imagine this analogy.

We are born into a swimming pool with a backpack and a flotation device. The flotation device has a small leak in it that will last about 120 years. This is the average life expectancy. What stress represents in your life is a rock in the backpack. Every time you put a rock in the backpack, you sink a little lower in the water. Day to day life becomes more of a struggle and it is harder to keep your head above water.

Do you think that the answer to the backpack full of rocks is to take a blood pressure medicine to keep your blo…

The Truth

"We Chiropractors work with the subtle substance of the soul. We release the imprisoned impulse, the tiny rivulet of force, that emanates from the mind and flows over the nerves to cells and stirs them into life. We deal with the majestic power that transforms common food into living, loving, thinking clay; that robes the earth with beauty, and hues and scents the flowers with the glory of their air." - B.J. Palmer, developer of Chiropractic

The whole is greater than the sum of its parts. We see this every day as Chiropractors. If we were merely the sum of our parts we would be nothing more than a cadaver. But we have an innate (or inner) intelligence that keeps us living, moving and breathing.

So, just like B.J says, we work with that innate intelligence every time we adjust you.Yes, the adjustments will help your back pain, your headaches, your carpal release that inborn healer inside of you that knows how to create new skin over a cut, that knows how to regulate all your …
