Study reveals no cause and effect relationship between Chiropractic and stroke
A new study finds there is no evidence of excess risk of stroke following chiropractic spinal manipulation, according to a February 2008 report in the journal Spine. In the study, researchers noted that patients are no more likely to suffer a stroke following chiropractic treatment.  

 

One of the newest breakthroughs in health technology is ReDox SIGNAING MOLECUES. It is making a tremendous impact in the care provided by Chiropractors.  It’s also an amazing and easy to generate profit center for most practitioners.  Ten years old, the technology, the world’s first and only cellular supplement is now being taught at Harvard Medical School.  Available in a bioreplenishing consumable and a topical application, this breakthrough technology is truly loved by the patients and the results and profits are certainly appreciated by the practices embracing this new opportunity.

The drink, bioreplenishes the ReDox SIGNALING MOLECULES we all lose by ageing. This is the molecule that signals for cellular repair and replacement on the original DNA found within the cells. Without it we produce inferior copies of inferior copies resulting in aging and many of the health challenges we face as we age.  This reverses that process.

The topical solution creates an amazing and instant response by the body, increasing range of motion, circulation, and amplifies the healing process.

From a business standpoint this supplement is one of the easiest to have a client use in a long term way, requires no back office inventory, no front office transaction, and because of the authorship program no follow up resale of the supplement is needed.  

Statically, on a national basis, most DC’s have a client base of 600-800 patients, of whom a third will follow a supplement recommendation made by their DC.  However most offices only manage a 20% follow up sale of the supplement moving forward.  This program, with its auto ship component, and all transactions automated has a retention rate 4 times higher. With the per order commission paid to the practitioner, this works out to 60k-100k per year. A nice "NET" add to the bottom line of any practice.

The best win/win opportunity to come around in a long time.

For more information contact ReDoxBiotech or one of the current physicians to learn how you can add this protocol and supplest to your practice.

Chiropractic care for children is often an overlooked business opportunity. 

Chiropractic pediatric care offers a family a solid foundation for wellness. Throughout pregnancy, birth, and childhood, the chiropractic lifestyle offers choices and benefits for your greater health and well-being.

Children's Chiropractic Safety Research has initiated a ground breaking study on the safety and effectiveness of chiropractic care for children. The preliminary results are outstanding and show that chiropractic care is safe for children. Even more significant is that parents reported  unexpected improvements with their child's care:

Improved sleeping
Improved behavior
AImproved attitude
Improved immune system function

This research was presented in 2007 at the 14th Annual Symposium on Complimentary Health Care in Exeter, UK. Read the abstracts below:

Fibromyalgia Pain Management Update 

Nearly 600 scientific papers related to fibromyalgia have been published in 2013.  Most of this research focused on the management of pain. The abstracts below from the last 90 days support a number of treatment strategies. These strategies had only a mild to moderate ability to modulate pain.  Among the abstracts below are studies using alternative or complementary therapies like massage and manual therapy.  

Several new studies further support exercise for both pain reduction and improving symptoms of depression.  Other interventions addressed in the literature include the use of alcohol as a potential therapy, vitamin D, cognitive therapy, cranial electrical stimulation, and gluten free diets. At this point, fibromyalgia remains a complex issue with a weak understanding of its etiology, diagnosis, effective palliative management or cure.


 
 

 

 
 



Thirdhand Smoke: Understanding a Serious “New” Health Risk
 

 

Recent studies link DNA damage to thirdhand smoke and note that it is a special threat to children.  Cigarette smoking (first hand smoke) has long been associated with multiple and devastating risks to human health.  Subsequent research confirmed the dangers of exposure to environments where smoke lingers from those who are actively smoking (second hand smoke).  The most recent studies now describe the risk of environmental pollutants that remain even after the second hand smoke has cleared.  These pollutants remain on the surfaces of buildings, furniture, floors, clothing and other items exposed to smokers and are being referred to as third hand (or thirdhand) smoke. 
 
A research study published on March 5, 2013 confirms that “thirdhand smoke causes DNA damage in human cells”.  The concern is especially great for young children who crawl on exposed floors or put items in their mouths that are contaminated.  As another study concluded, “Another threat to health and environment of our children, is the nicotine coming from indirect exposure to tobacco smoke. Residual nicotine that persists in high concentrations on the interior surfaces, including clothing, is forming in the reaction of nitric acid carcinogenic compounds of specific nitrosamines. In addition, ozone and related atmospheric oxidants react with nicotine smoke or smoke coming from the second-hand smoke, giving the smallest particles with high risk of asthma.”


 
 

 

 
 



Time To Ditch The Guilt 


Want to possibly improve your brain power, reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease, or find an economical sports drink? If you do, chocolate may be an alternative. 

In an October 2012 article in the New England Journal of Medicine a loose relationship was established between the countries with the highest chocolate intake and the number of Nobel Prize winners. The study concludes that “Chocolate consumption enhances cognitive function, which is a sine qua non for winning the Nobel Prize…” Due to the limitations of the study design, the author warns that there has been no clear cause and effect established by the research. 

More rigorous studies have confirmed the reduction of cardiovascular disease and a reduction of the risk of stroke. A Cochrane study also concluded that chocolate had a small but statistically significant impact on lowering blood pressure and yet another recent study supported the effectiveness of chocolate milk as an inexpensive drink to help recovery after exercise.
