Benefits of Natural Medicine
People have practiced natural medicine for centuries. Before the advent of modern technology, doctors and their patients had to rely on natural techniques and herbal remedies to treat illnesses or heal injuries. Everything from the common cold to life-threatening conditions such as cancer, diabetes and heart disease have been purported to be successfully treated without the use of modern-day medical equipment.
Due to the widespread popularity and blatant dominance of modern medicine in Western society, natural medicine has received much criticism for being backwards and unreliable. Is there any wonder why the majority of medical students know just as much about herbal drugs as the general public?

The healthcare system is structured in such a way that natural remedies are now widely perceived as inferior or something that people use when they cannot afford modern medicine. However, there have been many reported instances and a wealth of substantive data that prove exactly the opposite.

Child Backpack Safety: It's Time to Lighten the Load
When you move your child's backpack after he or she drops it at the door, does it feel like it contains 40 pounds of rocks? Maybe you've noticed your child struggling to put it on, bending forward while carrying it, or complaining of tingling or numbness.
If you've been concerned about the effects that extra weight might have on your child's still-growing body, your instincts are correct. Heavy backpacks can cause a lot of problems for kids, like back and shoulder pain, and poor posture. Lawmakers in some states are beginning to push for legislation requiring school districts to lighten the load.
While we wait for solutions like digital textbooks to become widespread, there are things you can do to help prevent injury. While it's common these days to see children carrying as much as a quarter of their body weight, the American Chiropractic Association recommeds a backpack weigh no more than 5% to 10% of a child's weight.
