  • Screen Shot 2014-05-17 at 2.06.10 PMDo you feel stiff when you get up from sitting?
  • Are any of your joints sore when you fully move them?
  • Do your hands feel stiff?
  • Do any of your joints feel swollen?
  • Do you have unexplained nasal congestion?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, you have inflammation, and maybe pain going on in your body right now. What most people and doctors don’t realize is that it comes from the food you eat every day!

Foods that can cause inflammation in your body are:

  • SUGAR!
  • DAIRY!

To help decrease the pain and prevent disease in the long run you need to find out what is causing the pain & inflammation in your body and calm it down. It can be figured out!

It’s worth it at ANY age!

“Your back pain will require SURGERY”

“Without these pills, you face life-long PAIN”

“Your child’s behavior requires MEDICATION”

That’s what the doctor tells you, but who tells the doctor what to say?


A visit to the doctor can be traumatic enough. Now we learn about the “influencers” – the people you never see, but whose job it is to turn you into a compliant, pill popping, revenue generation unit. And at all costs. Doctored reveals the unseen tactics of these “influencers” in an investigation that leads to the highest levels of the American Medical Association (AMA) and reveals an alarming portrait of deception and criminality. Along the way we wonder: Is much of what we “know” about modern medicine just slick marketing from companies that profit when we’re in pain (or by putting us in pain)? Why aren’t we being told about the successes of natural therapies? Why do so many people think chiropractors are “quacks,” nutritional supplements a waste of money, and acupuncture a fringe therapy?

Medical Monopoly

Is it because the “Medical Monopoly” spends millions a year attacking, ridiculing, and trying to discredit these natural therapies? The answers are almost beyond belief, until Doctored takes us into the courtroom with five chiropractors who, having been labeled “an unscientific cult,’ fought back and won a landmark verdict. Their heroic story forms the backdrop of one of the most personally compelling documentaries ever. Because of their bravery, the medical industrial complex is no longer blocking access to safe natural alternatives, pill popping is giving way to smarter preventative care, and purveyors of sickness are being shoved aside, resulting in a healthier life for us all.

Come join us for a fun and informative “Movie Night”
with a lively discussion afterwards!

Screen Shot 2014-07-20 at 2.29.13 PMEveryone knows salt is bad for you, right? That’s what we’ve been told for many years. We’ve heard it promotes heart disease and that sea salt is the best salt for you. Is this really true????

There is salt that’s actually good for you. It has lots of minerals, 70-80 in fact, unlike regular table salt or even some sea salt that has only a few.

The research is flawed! Here are some things that most people don’t know:

  • Too little salt may actually cause heart disease – In one European study, subjects were followed for eight years. They discovered that a low salt diet was causing more heart disease in these subjects.
  • Salt is not associated with high blood pressure – It’s when you don’t have enough minerals that you can get high blood pressure
  • We need salt! Sodium keeps fluid in the body balanced. Without it, our heart cannot function properly. Chloride keeps our acid-base balance.

Don’t use refined salt. Do use salt in moderation and use the right type of salt. Most are bad for you like table salt, some sea salt and even some kosher salt!

Anti-caking agents can be put in salt to increase the shelf life. Sea salt may also be refined so it is a marketing gimmick.

You need salt that is good for you. Some examples are:

  • Himalayan Salt
  • Celtic Salt

You want a salt that has lots of minerals to keep your body in balance. Avoid processed food, fast food and most restaurant food overall to avoid the “bad” salt.
