Expanding interest in traditional Chinese medicine in the United States is fostering a potentially lucrative new niche market for farmers who plant the varieties of herbs, flowers and trees sought by practitioners. While almost all practitioners still rely on imports from China, dwindling wild stands there, as well as quality and safety concerns, could drive up demand for herbs grown …

In Latest Obamacare Fiasco, Most Low-Income Workers Can’t Afford “Affordable Care Act”

Just ten days ago we described the latest unintended (we hope) consequence of the Affordable Care Act known as Obamacare, when Colorado’s largest nonprofit co-op health insurer and participant in that state’s insurance exchange, Colorado HealthOP, announcing it was abruptly shutting down ahead of the November 1 start of enrollment for 2016, forcing 80,000 Coloradans to find a new insurer for 2016. …

The Real Reason Why RAW Milk Is Illegal

While the main argument by the FDA is that it has a higher chance of havingSalmonella, E. coli, or Listeria bacteria, the same can be said for many types of sushi and unpasteurized cider, believe it or not.

Fearless Parent Radio – Beyond Diet & Nutrition: Overlooked Healing Strategies – 08.19.15

Guest // Patricia Lemer, LPC

Host // Beth Lambert

palmer-reflexWhen a child is sick and parents are in “get it done” mode, stand back. We’re booking appointments, stocking up on supplies, recruiting therapists, setting up protocols, implementing new programs, and buying lots (and lots) of supplements. It’s a relief to be productive but the feeling doesn’t last. Our frenzied, sleepless activity gives way to a kind of unnatural calm where we ask:

What am I missing?

There are elements of a child’s growth and development that are almost always overlooked. This is true for all children but it’s especially true for those on a healing journey. For example:

State-of-the-art won’t mean a thing if the basics aren’t covered — think: sleep, sunshine, laughter.
What are retained primitive reflexes and what do they have to do with memory, sensory integration, emotional maturity, eating, handwriting, and stress management (among many, many others)?
Did you know that visual acuity (i.e., can your child see the blackboard?) is just one component of vision?

Obamacare continues historic downward slide by Joan McCarter

In the uninsured rate, that is. Gallup reports another low in the uninsured rate, which they’ve been tracking for the past seven years.

The Choice Ahead: A Private Health-Insurance Monopoly or a Single Payer – ROBERT REICH

The Supreme Court’s recent blessing of Obamacare has precipitated a rush among the nation’s biggest health insurers to consolidate into two or three behemoths. The result will be good for their shareholders and executives, but bad for the rest of us – who will pay through the nose for the health insurance we need. We have another choice, but before …
