WELLNESS: Eat More Nuts, and Sooner Too Compared to people who avoid nuts, those who eat nuts on a regular basis tend to have a lower risk for diabetes, better cardiovascular health, a reduced mortality risk, and greater longevity. According to the most recent research, eating 10 grams of nuts each day may reduce your risk of death from any cause by 23 percent. Research suggests that exposing infants and young children with peanut allergy to trace amounts of peanuts at an early age can help de-sensitize their immune systems and boost their tolerance.
CHIROPRACTIC: MY STORY by DR. JOHN KEEFE It is a scary thing to see your first born child sick, tied down to the bed, crying and scared. Being in a hospital you assume they would know what to do. That evening the doctor came by to explain that they didn’t know what to do and left us alone with a desperately sick child. My six-month old son was in the hospital fighting for his life. As babies do from time to time, Brian developed diarrhea. Only in his case after two different medications failed and he became dehydrated with a temperature, I had to rush him to the hospital. I watched for four hours as they tried to put a needle in one of his blood vessels. When I was allowed back in the room Brian was tied to a hospital bed, his arms tied down, his legs tied down and a needle in his leg because they couldn’t find a vein. After a day and a half I realized if I wanted to save my son’s life, I would have to do something completely different. I called my chiropractor and explained the problem. Telling me what to feed him and having spinal adjustments, I saw my son start to recover. In a matter of days, he started to return to his normal self. The power that made the body can heal the body.
