    Pumpkin is an excellent source of vitamin A, beta-carotene and potassium.  Beta-carotene, which can help reduce cancer risk, is thought to provide anti-aging benefits.  Studies also suggest that chemical compounds in pumpkin can regenerate damaged pancreatic cells, possibly increasing insulin production and helping diabetics.  So, this season after you’ve carved the face on your favorite pumpkin, opt out of throwing away the inside and make one of these recycled treats.  Your body and skin will thank you!

    Football is a sixty-minute game consisting of four 15-minute quarters and on Sunday the Denver Broncos walloped the Washington Redskins in the fourth quarter. Up 21-14 after three quarters, the Redskins lost 45-21.

    The Broncos’ 31-point fourth quarter outburst was assisted by a Redskins offense that couldn’t do anything right.

    On their sixth fourth quarter possessions, the Redskins were forced to punt twice and threw four straight interceptions to end the game. The first two were heaved into the air by quarterback Robert Griffin III while the final two came from quarterback ... Read More

    Dry Needling is an invasive technique used by physical and occupational therapists to treat acute and chronic pain, and rehabilitation from injury with very few side effects.
