November 12, 2010

Neck pain is a common condition affecting about 10% of the general population of North America at any given time, over a year up to 45%, and over a lifetime 70%. Neck pain results in a significant amount of disability and health care use in the United States, with large personal and economic consequences. As the duration of neck symptoms increases, especially beyond six months, one’s mental health is negatively affected.

It is well documented that the longer the pain persists, the more likely it will become chronic—with up to 7% of patients ending up with chronic neck pain.

Dairy-Free and Loving It! by Joanne Gordon, N.D., P.T.

November 12, 2010

I never had a blemish during my teenage years, but in my mid-20s I developed extensive facial acne. I washed and scrubbed my face daily, used blemish creams and took good care of myself. Nothing seemed to make a difference. If anything, my skin got worse. I couldn’t figure out why I was getting acne at this time in my life. I was active, healthy and vegetarian.
