What is SCARY, however, are the ingredients in so much of the 'candy' and 'treats' that are marketed, bought and given in the name of Halloween. Typical Halloween fare consists of insane amounts of sugar, artificial sweetners, colours, flavours, preservatives, GMO's and other spooky ingredients that you can't pronounce. If you care about our children's health, read on to find out fun ways to make Halloween a healthier holiday for all...

When it comes to fertility, there is a lot of focus on what women can do to improve their chances of falling pregnant. But, as they say, it takes two to tango! It is just as important for the father-to-be to look after his health and make sure his reproductive system is in top shape for a successful and healthy pregnancy to take place.
There are many things that men can do to boost their fertility and increase the likelihood of conception with their partner.
In this series we take a look at some recent research into acupuncture from a Western scientific perspective, to help us deepen our understanding and appreciation for the many effective uses of acupuncture.
Acupuncture improves recovery time for Athletes
For athletes, whether amateur or professional, injury is an ever present but dreaded possibility. The rest time required whilst waiting for wounds and injuries to heal can be mind-numbing and infuriating. Once normal activities have resumed, the injury can flare up again if it has not been properly healed, leading to a vicious cycle of pain and frustration. This stressful scenario has led athletes, athletic doctors and physical therapists to search for better ways to treat sporting injuries and faster methods of healing.
