In a recent issue of
magazine, an article entitled, "It's Only Natural", discussed a recent gathering of 300 pediatricians in Tucson, Arizona. The speakers included, Stephen Straus, M.D., head of the National Institutes of Health's National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine and Andrew Weil, M.D., director of the program in integrative medicine at the

That Tingling Feeling
The foot is a remarkable mechanism and is as complex as any system in the body. Containing 26 bones, ligaments, tendons, muscles, a complicated nerve supply; it isn't surprising that it is reported that 75% of Americans complain of foot problems each year.

That is a familiar sensation to us all. You cross your leg and then find that it has gone numb. The ensuing "pins and needles" sensation is referred to as "gone to sleep."
These tips can help you steer clear of pain & keep you feeling your best.
