A NEW LOOK AT CANCER PREVENTION 

A CRITICAL FACTOR:  MANAGING STRESS

Article #2 in a 3-part series

Read Article #1:  Promoting & Honoring Nature’s Rhythms

By Dr. David Martin, Acupuncture Physician, D.O.M.

 

The Opioid Crisis is making headlines these days.  National leaders are beginning to pay attention to this ongoing and expanding situation of overuse of opioids, a class of substances  which include heroin as well as prescription pain killers such as Oxycodone, codeine, morphine, or Fentanyl.  Essentially the opioids interact with nerve and brain function. These medications are very strong and have a powerful effect on the entire body, brain and mind.

 

Since the 1990’s, when the amount of opioids prescribed to patients began to grow, the number of overdoses and deaths from prescription opioids […]

CBD for You and Me!

By |May 1st, 2018|Aging Gracefully, Anxiety/Stress, Cancer, Cardiovascular and Diabetes, Drugs, Pain, Uncategorized|

CBD oil is a Natural Medicine found in the Cannabis plant.  No one can get “high” on it.  But it is an effective medicine for multiple issues as well as for longevity.  CBD regenerates the human body and brain to be more youthful.  It changes lives, and the cities and states who embrace it may experience significant growth and a revitalized economy.  But, as the popularity of the Cannabis plant has grown over the past decade, the pharmaceutical industry has been busy behind the scenes.  There are currently serious legal obstacles posed by the FDA (Federal Drug Administration).
