When you’re feeling a bit under the weather in terms of your health and overall well being, what’s the first thing that you do? Do try to listen to your body’s needs in the form of symptoms or do you seek to dull the pain with over the counter medication?

Undoubtedly, veterinarians are a key part of life for many Americans. In 2013 alone, veterinary care accounted for $14.37 billion dollars spent on pet care. However, that doesn’t mean that vets are getting rich off of what they do. Far from it, in fact. Many veterinarians in this day and age are finding it difficult to stay afloat. This isn’t because pet owners are taking poor care of their animals. Nor is it because they can’t afford the services offered by veterinarians. In fact, sometimes the opposite is the issue. Veterinarians are not in this for the money, but rather for the love of animals. Nor are they monitored by the same oversight that doctors who treat humans experience. That is, when it comes to paying for human medical bills, insurance companies are often involved. This can result i
Sweating is a normal part of life, and in most cases can even be good for you! It can help cool you down, as well as rid your body of dirt and toxins. Although sweating in moderation can be good for your body, excessive sweating is not.

Chronic pain can be a massive hindrance in our lives. Whether it’s from an old injury or the side effects of medical treatment, it can sap us of our vitality and leave us feeling weak and empty, like a shell that washed onto a beach.

America’s problem with weight is no secret. At least two-thirds of all people in the United States are either overweight or outright obese. When a person weighs more than 20% more than what might be considered to be a normal body weight, they are classified as obese. At the moment, approximately 30% of Americans are obese. This is one of the reasons that there seems to be a new weight loss program come out every season that promises easy weight loss without diet or exercise.

Perhaps one of the greatest — if not the greatest — joy in life is creating life yourself. Regardless of whether you’re a man or a woman, doing your part to conceive a child in your respective capacity is natural, primal urge that is natural to feel and experience. It has little to nothing to do with your sex, gender identity or presentation, sexual preference, or sexuality; the desire to procreate is normal, natural, and strong. Even parents that experience unplanned pregnancies experience a sheer sense of joy after the initial shock and fear wear off. Unplanned pregnancies are truly blessings in disguise!
Unfortunately, not all couples are able to conceive naturally and may need a little help due to infertility. Although many couples find this process frustrating, emotionally draining,
There are approximately 24,000 babies born every year that have some sort of hearing those. This number does not even include children that lose all or part of their hearing within the first few years of their life. Having hearing aids or listening devices are a very good way to help them continue or begin to hear. Understandably, there is some controversy related to hearing equipment among the deaf community but hearing consultants agree, for the most part, that children should have the opportunity to hear what is going on around them. If an adult chooses not to get a hearing aid, that is one thing but to never give the child that chance is something that they should not be deprived of. Here are some reasons why children might benefit from hearing aids according to hearing consultants.

Nearly 27 million American adults and children visit Doctors of Chiropractic (DC) for care every year. People who start their care with a chiropractor after a back injury are much less likely to end up having surgery as people who start with a spine surgeon.
