18 Hours and Counting…

Posted on 20. Oct, 2009 by drpeters in Uncategorized

NC Chiropractors are required to take 24 hours of Continuing Education every year. I actually love to learn new things and recently came away with some of the following at a recent class:

- A one day dosage of over the counter NSAID’s (e.g. Ibuprofen) raises the risk of heart attack by 47%
- Chiropractic is 5 times more effective than drugs for pain management
- Research shows that it takes only 1000 accumulative doses of Tylenol to reach Kidney failure
- Omega 3’s are the number one missing nutrient among Americans
- $5 Billion total yearly Chiropractic economic production. $32 Billion yearly total marketing expenditure by pharmaceutical companies.
- Vitamin D supplementation, particularly at higher doses, may protect against colds and flu
- Good and proper biomechanics (“movement”) is important to physiology and systemic health and wellbeing
-The lowest exposure of aspartame at 80ppm caused a 62% increase in lymphomas and leukemia
- There are no significant (high potency) vegetarian sources of EPA (a vital Omega 3)

Of course there is more, but it would take alot of space…
