You'll see a lot of people wearing copper bangles. Why? For some, it's simply fashion - they like them. But many people wear copper bracelets because they've heard that they help a lot with arthritis and rheumatic pain.

When a vertebra loses its normal position, motion, or a combination of both in relation to neighboring vertebrae, it is then called vertebral subluxation. Just like a hose with flowing water being stepped on, it puts pressure on delicate nerves where the organ or body part at the other end of the nerve does not receive messages properly. When there is nerve interference, the communication from the brain to the organ is broken down, then there is a malfunction and disease may eventually develop.
I am unashamedly a fan of the Bioflow system of magnotherapy. It works, it's got medical evidence to back it up, and it uses the principles of the reliable, proven electrical magnotherapy equipment in hospitals and physiotherapy clinics.

Our hips do a lot of work for us. They support our bodies, put up with the repeated motion of back and forth while we walk and run, and help us to dance the night away when needed. They are not indestructible, however, and over time, they may begin to hurt. If you are experiencing hip pain, you might be curious as to what may be causing it. If so, we may just have the answers you need.
As each and every one of us gets to be older we all find different types of pain troubling our spirits. For some people, it will be pain in the back. For yet others, it may come in the form of arthritic pain of the joints, or just general aches and pains of an unknown origin. Pain can be a challenging thing to tolerate for extended durations of time, and may dramatically bring down a person's overall feeling of mental well-being.
Being tired or even fatigued once in a while is quite normal, especially since we live such hectic lives. This is a normal kind of fatigue, where you feel refreshed once you take rest and relax. However, if you still feel tired after long hours of sleep and rest, then you may be suffering from extreme fatigue. It is also known as chronic fatigue (CF).
Marijuana has no specific drug class, but legally it is considered a Schedule 1 Narcotic by the DEA. This means it's defined as having a high potential for abuse and no accepted medical use. Multiple states (15 now including Arizona as the latest), disagree with this and have laws on the books legalizing marijuana for medicinal usage. Low grade marijuana contains 1 to 3 percent delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) which is what is typically sold recreationally.
