IN THE NEWS: Heartburn Can Be Easily Eliminated Without Hazardous, Habit Forming Drugs Proton pump inhibitors (PPIs) like Nexium, Prilosec and Prevacid are designed to treat a very limited range of severe problems, yet as many as 20 million Americans take them for mild to moderate heartburn. PPIs have been linked to a heightened risk for a number of serious health problems, including chronic kidney disease, pneumonia, osteoporosis, hip fractures, dementia, heart disease, and heart attacks. There are many ways to eliminate heartburn or acid reflux without drugs, starting with eating real food and probiotic-rich fermented foods. Helpful supplements that help treat the underlying cause are also reviewed.
WELLNESS: IS YOUR BODY A TOXIC DUMP FOR CORPORATIONS? More than 200 industrial chemicals, found in products like pesticides, jet fuel and flame retardants, are found in Americans’ blood and breast milk. Chemical companies spent $100,000 lobbying per member of Congress in 2015 to successfully block serious oversight. Toxins you’re exposed to while in your mother’s womb can end up impacting the health of your great-grandchildren through inherited epigenetic changes.

CONDITION OF THE WEEK: HEART DISEASE is a condition that is best treated through natural methods. Studies show that most medical approaches don’t extend life as much as reports would indicate. Balloons, stents and bypass surgery come with several complications. Chiropractic adjustments help balance the parasympathetic and sympathetic nervous system which is crucial to heart health. Targeted nutrients to the blood vessels that surround the heart can cause dramatic improvement in short periods of time. Following your body type diet with emphasis on anti-inflammatory foods and balancing the body’s pH can take a surgical heart condition and turn it into a healthy heart in the matter of weeks.
FUNNY BONES: Laugh and the world laughs with you, snore and you sleep alone.@@ If you’re naturally kind, you attract a lot of people you don’t like.@@ We owe a lot to Thomas Edison – if it wasn’t for him, we’d be watching television by candlelight.@@ The first time I sang in the church choir; two hundred people changed their religion.@@ When we talk to God, we’re praying. When God talks to us, we’re schizophrenic.@@ I hate housework! You make the beds, you do the dishes and six months later you have to start all over again.@@ When I eventually met Mr. Right I had no idea that his first name was Always.
