Low Carb, High Fat Diet

This is one of the better websites I’ve come across for information about implementation and benefits of a low carbohydrate, high fat diet.  Diabetic or pre-diabetic?  Or trying to lose weight? Take a look.




R​easons for use of yoga, supplements, and spinal manipulation – analysis

“General wellness or disease prevention” was the most common wellness-related reason for use of each of the three approaches.
More than two-thirds of users of all three health approaches reported that their use improved their overall health and made them feel better.
Nearly two-thirds of yoga users reported that as a result of practicing yoga they were motivated to exercise more regularly, and 4 in 10 reported they were motivated to eat healthier.
More than 80 percent of yoga users reported reduced stress as a result of practicing yoga.
Although dietary supplement users were twice as likely to report wellness rather than treatment as a reason for taking supplements, fewer than 1 in 4 reported reduced stress, better sleep, or feeling better emotionally as a result of using dietary supplements.
More than 60 percent of those using spinal manipulation reported doing so to treat a specific health condition, and more than 50 percent did so for general wellness or disease prevention.

First-Contact Care With a Medical vs Chiropractic Provider

The purpose of this study was to identify differences in outcomes, patient satisfaction, and related health care costs in spinal, hip, and shoulder pain patients who initiated care with medical doctors (MDs) vs those who initiated care with doctors of chiropractic (DCs) in Switzerland.  


Although spinal, hip, and shoulder pain patients had clinically comparable pain relief irrespective of the initial provider seen, overall health care costs were considerably lower if patients initiated care with DCs compared with those who initiated care with MDs. Moreover, patients initially consulting DCs had greater satisfaction levels with care compared with those initially consulting MDs.



Too many antibiotics may be making kids fatter
In the largest study on the subject to date, researchers from Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health found that children who take antibiotics regularly throughout their childhood gain weight significantly faster than those who do not. The findings were published in the International Journal of Obesity.

Chondroitin outperforms Celebrex in knee osteoarthritis study

Team studied 194 people with knee OA and inflammation of the synovial membrane in the knee. The participants were followed for two years and were divided into two groups. The first group took 1200mg of chondroitin daily, and the second group took 200mg of celecoxib daily.


At both one and two years, the researchers found a better reduction of cartilage loss in the whole knee, and more particularly in the inner half, of the participants on chondroitin when compared to those on celecoxib. Additionally, there was a decrease in synovial membrane thickness in some of the participants on chondroitin, showing far better results for this group.
