Can we now put this ancient myth to rest as being a total lie. This lie was used by the anti-chiropractic crowd as one of the reasons not to have your back treated with chiropractic manipulative therapy. The facts are clear:  Chiropractic care is perhaps the safest and most effective procedure for spine and body pain syndromes.  Dr. Press

BEWARE: Acetaminophen + Pregnancy

So what is a woman, pregnant and in pain supposed to do to find relief?  Acetaminophen, the active ingredient in one the most commonly used over-the-counter pain medications 'Tylenol', apparently increases the odds of an over active child and/or ADHD.   Article and Video here

The article suggests "...other pain relief methods, such as hot packs, cold packs or massage." What about chiropractic?  One of many studies indicated "Most pregnant patients undergoing chiropractic treatment reported clinically relevant improvement..."  See Article Here

Long-Term Use Of Benadryl, Many Over-The-Counter Cold Medications Linked To Dementia

Benadryl, and many over-the-counter cold medications have been used for decades.  Now we learn the end result may result in Dementia.  Article Here

I would suggest to not get sick in the first place, but we all get run down or catch a bug every once in a while.  If possible try alternative remedies. You may even try to battle your could and flu symptoms with tea, extra rest time, more sleep, chicken soup and/or herbal tonics. 

Regardless, if you can not cope with the symptoms by drug-less means, please consult with your medical physician for other options.

Best of natural health, always.  Dr. Press 

Killing our Heros One Pill at a Time

'...eight oxycodone tablets and several tranquilizers and muscle relaxants...'  Read More Here

This reoccurring tragic story is not right and it is happening too often.  As a country we need to admit the problem is real, admit that it is getting worst and not getting better.

Our heroes need more then just pain pills.  One VA medical facility was nicknamed the Candy Store, because of how easy it was to get  opiates and other pain medicines.

There must be a better way to help our heroes heal and recover without adding to the problem.  Perhaps our medical community should unite with health practitioners whom provide drug-less methods of pain control.  If a soldier is not prescribed natural healing procedures, such as chiropractic care, then they only know one way, opiates, and we are seeing the horrifying results. 

As health care providers, let us one work together to help our men and women on and off the battlefield.  Chiropractic care is one of many options for pain relief, such as acupuncture and physical therapy. Increasing the utilization of all available non-opiate treatments needs to be apart of the answer to the drug over dose epidemic in our armed forces.  Let's get started!  Dr. Press
