Written by Dr Scott Rosenthal. Posted in Family Health.

As with any medical procedure, it is wise to consider the risks. Being an informed patient can help bring about better choices for yourself and your loved ones. Before we look into the safety of chiropractic, I’d like to provide some perspective.

Firmness, Fire and Focus

Written by Suzanne Eder. Posted in Self Growth.

Firmness, Fire ,Focus,self growthIn order to relax into the flow of our lives, we first have to get in the flow.
The great promise in following our dreams is that in doing so, we come into alignment with who we really are. We literally get in the flow of our own lives and start experiencing, more and more, the inspired thoughts, unexpected opportunities, supportive people and delightful synchronicities that affirm for us the “rightness” of our path.

Rate Your Mental State

Written by Karen Carlson. Posted in Personal Growth.

Rate Your Mental State
“Depending on our mood, we experience the identical circumstances—who we are married to, where we work, the car we drive, our potential, our childhood—entirely differently.”
—Richard Carlson From: Don’t Sweat the Small Stuff…and it’s all small stuff  (MJF Books, NY 10001, 1997).
Mood swings are a fact of life for everyone. Given the increasing scientific evidence that mind and body are interactive I have found the daily practice of rating my mental state helpful and healthful for life management. This is another mindful exercise in self awareness, a fundamental quality that elevates Homo sapiens from the rest of the animal kingdom. This practice pays huge dividends for my quality of life, so I will share my process for you to use. But first let me elaborate on some benefits of engaging a mood rating system.

How Do Nutrition And Chiropractic Work Together?

Written by Melissa Crispell, CNS, CNHP& Dr. Lisette Miller, DC. Posted in Integrative Health.

Functional Medicine &Integrative Health
Functional Medicine is an integrative, science-based healthcare approach that medical doctors, doctors of chiropractic, osteopathic doctors, nurse practitioners, and nutritionists  use to treat illness and promotes wellness by focusing on the bio-chemically unique aspects of each patient, and then individually tailoring interventions to restore physiological, psychological, and structural balance.

Although, functional nutrition seems to be more accurate as everything is food. Our primary foods are what we put in our mouths and our secondary foods are how we nourish our bodies. A balance of primary and secondary foods is imperative for optimal whole-body function.

The Digital World of Sex & Relationships

Written by Dianna Palimere, PhD, LCSW . Posted in Advice.

 The Digital World of Sex & Relationships
The technological advancements that have been produced over the past two decades have led to a fundamental shift in our interpersonal communications with one another at work, in our social lives, and in our homes.


Face-to-face communication has widely been replaced with what is now called Computer-mediated communication (CMC). In its most basic definition, this is “any human communication that occurs through the use of two or more electronic devices” (McQuail, 2005). With so many electronic devices now at our fingertips, the ways we interact with each other, and the ways we now form relationships are vastly different than even just a few years ago; and it continues to grow and change at a fairly rapid pace.
