Chiropractic Care in Children

Hi all you fabulous moms! I hope you are all having a great day! I recently started seeing a chiropracter and his office believes in treating the whole family. My husband who used to receive this care as a pre-teen has also started going too. You are not required to have your child treated to be treated there and as of yet I have decided to not have my child treated. At this time my train of thought is that I just could never forgive myself if my child was that one in a milllion where something went wrong. Still, I am curious about...

What Do You Know About High Blood Pressure?

I've always had high blood pressure... well, above 'normal' (which is 120/80)... The past few time's I've been to the doctor for various reasons, I've received letters: 'This is letting you know that you should schedule a follow up visit for your last BP reading'... I've always let it go, because usually, I'm stressed to the max when I go to the doc, so I've passed it off as that. Well when I went Monday, my BP was 150/100. SOOOO not good. I'm not obese, take relatively good care of myself, trying to quit smoking, eat pretty healthy,...

Anxiety over Stress Test...

My 61yr old mother is scheduled for a Persantine Stress Test and is extremely nervous/stressed about it. It is not the test that is taken while walking on a treadmill. She will be lying down and given an injection to speed the heart and blood flow. My mother is a very nervous person to begin with and this test has caused her to be even more stressed. She cares for my 3yr and 8 mo boys and can't help but feel that I am adding to the problem. I have since looked in to a day care...but that is another story. I would like to calm her with any...

I need advice about what vaccines are neccesary and what which ones my 4 month old daughter can do without.

Iam concerned that vaccinations might cause autism when they get them so young. Iam really worried about this especially with all the talk about autism these days. I'd like to know what other moms did. Your advice is greatly appriciated. Her Dr. appointment is...

Down After Daughter's Doctor's Appointment

I just returned from my daughter's 2-year well-child visit with her doctor and I am totally bummed. This is my only child and I know that I am a little over-protective, but I felt awful after I left there. She had not seen her doctor since her 18 month check-up and I don't call the doctor's office just for anything, so I had compiled a list of some questions since that last visit that I wanted to ask her doctor. It ended up being a little long and I tried not to look so anal with my questions, but they were genuine concerns I had and wanted...
