Hello everyone and happy new year.

There was a great story on ABC news January 4, 2012 at 6:30 PM stating chiropractic care was the best at helping with neck pain. Better than Medication and better than exercise.

This blog entry is to give notice of the September 2011 Consumer Reports Magazine article on ALTERNATIVE THERAPIES. On page 20, this article showed chiropractic medicine to be the most helpful for back pain (45,000 people were surveyed). It beat prescriptions and over the counter medications. You can read the internet version by clicking the Related Link Below.

Food Combining 
Friday, January 7, 2011, 09:09 PM
Happy new year to everyone.

I have recently come across a technique in eating habits that I find very logical in my mind. Its called Food Combining. In short, the idea is if you eat foods that are "acidic" and you mix them with "alkaline" foods, the foods will not digest properly, and instead "rot and ferment", which further passes to your intestines for absorption, leading to health problems. So a sample person using this system would eat their Fruit in the morning, their Protein at lunch, and maybe a Starchy Dinner.

Its is much more detailed than this, and I want to give the link and credit where it is due. I found the web-site after seeing Marilu Henner's appearance on 60 minutes and hearing her on Howard Stern on Sirius XM. Her website is very informative and that is where I first learned about Food Combining. I will list the link to the food combinging chart on the RELATED LINK below this blog, or you can search through Marilu Henner's website at

How Pure is your Water???? 
Wednesday, August 12, 2009, 12:50 AM
Have you ever tested the water your drink in your home to see how clean it really is??? Well there is a way you can see. If you click on the Related Link below, you will be able to see a TDS meter. TDS stands for Total Dissolved Solids. Its the total amount of mobile charged ions, including minerals, salts, or metals dissolved in a given volume of water. TDS is expressed in Parts per Million (PPM). TDS includes any INORGANIC element present OTHER than the pure water molecule (H2O) and suspended solids.
What does all this mean. Simple. The LOWER the TDS level in the water you drink, the more efficiently your body's cells are HYDRATED. The HIGHER the TDS level in the water, the Greater the probability of harmful contaminants that can hinder the absorption of water and possibly health risks. The Instrument measures 0 - 999.

I personally recommended that you TRY to only drink Distilled water, preferably distilled in your home, and stored in glass or stainless steel canteen or ceramic, no plastics. Sounds extreme? well here were my basic readings in my home....

Tap water ... TDS meter reading 133
Filtered water TDS meter reading 94
zypherhills Spring water TDS meter reading 191

DISTILLED water TDS meter reading 1

Dont believe me. Click on the Related link below, and purchase a TDS meter from the company Applied Membranes. They got some neat things. If you are involved in agriculture or gardening, you may already own one.

One of the foundations needed to be healthy, is to be drinking Clean Water.
