The Body’s Last-Ditch Effort to Cleanse Itself Before the Heat of Summer

The Body’s Last-Ditch Effort to Cleanse Itself Before the Heat of Summer

One of Ayurveda’s important teachings is that our body should be properly prepared for whatever season is around the corner. Each season brings with it special challenges for the body (i.e. fat accumulates in the cold winter months, heat accumulates in the hot summer months) and if we take care to cleanse it and feed it the proper foods, we will be rewarded with better health.

FDA Releases New Warning About Antibiotics

FDA Releases New Warning About Antibiotics

It took the FDA decades to recognize the serious and potentially irreversible side effects of Cipro and Levaquin antibiotics. We hope the new warning works.

Fighting for Naturopaths

Fighting for Naturopaths

Recently an association of four-year trained naturopathic doctors (NDs) in Oregon brought a class action lawsuit against an insurance provider. They allege that the insurance company conducted unlawful and discriminatory practices by arbitrarily denying payments for primary care services provided by NDs.

The lawsuit also alleges that Obamacare actually prohibits insurance companies from discriminating against practitioners who are practicing within the scope of their licenses—and Oregon NDs are licensed to practice primary care, prescribe medicines, and order tests for their patients.
