Bottom line: Always wash your produce thoroughly and buy organic wherever possible.

Are you preparing for your 2014 tax-free healthcare?

Healthcare Savings Accounts (HSAs) and Flexible Spending Accounts (FSA) are sometimes confused in everyday talk, but while these benefit plans are very different, they achieve the same end: reducing your taxable income while boosting your spending power on healthcare essentials.  Both withhold pre-tax dollars from your paycheck to pay for qualified health care expenses, the difference is FSA is a spending account-"use it or lose it" in the same year the money is set aside - whereas HSA is a savings account, available when you need it, even if that's not for many years down the road.

Thank you for sharing, Amanda Pederson!
This is a very short, very good article from a patient.

Many millions of adjustments have been given in the past 118 years. Happy birthday chiropractic! I hope people will continue to learn that natural chiropractic care is a vital component in being your healthiest you. Don't keep it a secret, spread the word.

16,650 overdose deaths in 2010. Is there a safer option?
The Food and Drug Administration is requiring stronger warning labels on prescription painkillers like OxyContin and Vicodin, in the government’s latest attempt to reduce overdose deaths caused by the long-acting medications.
   The changes are designed to remind doctors and patients about the fatal risks of misusing and abusing opioid pain relievers, which include extended-release forms of oxycodone, hydrocodone and morphine. Abuse of prescription painkillers is up more than 12 percent.
   The new label emphasizes that long-acting opioids are only for patients with “around-the-clock” pain that cannot be treated with over-the-counter medications or immediate-release opioids. The FDA has issued a number of warnings about the dangers of prescription pain relievers in recent years but with little effect. Inappropriate use of opioids caused more than 16,650 overdose deaths in 2010, up more than 12 percent from 2008.
   The Best Bet:
Patients often rely on medications to treat acute and chronic pain, but they should always check with a health care provider first to see if safer options are available.  Dr. Meyer is an expert in drug free pain relief which is safer and more effective at treating the most common conditions resulting in the use of strong medications.  In fact, according to the American College of Physicians, the most effective treatment for acute lower back pain is spinal manipulation.  For chronic back pain, it is a combination of spinal manipulation and exercise.
