Alternative Goes Mainstream
Chiropractic, herbs, acupuncture and other so-called "alternative treatments" are clearly here to stay. And boomers aren't the only ones embracing them.

Their children--and their parents-are trying everything from aromatherapy to yoga to stay healthy or get well, according to a new survey by Harvard Medical School researchers. The survey found that 68 per cent of adults have used at least one kind of alternative or complementary therapy. Nearly half stuck with one treatment for as long as 20 years.



Alternative Route to Health
If you believe that the only road to good health is paved with pills, potions, and surgery, this is not the article for you. If your favorite part of watching TV is making a list of the new drugs you can ask your doctor or pharmacist about, stop reading right here.

If you are looking for a road where the foundation of good health is realized, read on. Educated individuals are disenchanted with the healthcare their parents knew. Simply seeing the medications their aging parents now take is enough to create concern. What they visualize is a future where one symptom is treated with a pill that creates another symptom without ever finding the cause of the first symptom. Add to this the terrifying statistics of deaths due to medical procedures and intelligent people just want something that is real health. They want different. They want BETTER.



Auto Accident Back Pain Years Later
With current legislation mandating the use of seat belts, an increased number of neck and back injuries have been reported when seat belts are used. While these injuries may be less significant than in unrestricted accidents, health care providers must address these potentially lifelong problems and not dismiss them as merely "Whiplash". Many cases of tension headache and Cervical Migraine may be the result of a neck injury that may have been forgotten or simply dismissed as trivial by the patient-according to a study published in Spine. In the article, Dr. MacNab reviewed 266 cases and found at least 45% continued to have symptoms 2 years following the settlement of court actions. Most people that are involved in "minor" rear-end collisions do not realize the potential for injury to the spine. If pain does not immediately ensue, the incident may be forgotten.
