Coming to terms with sudden, unexpected loss of a loved one

You may recall the day you learned of your loved one's death with great detail and clarity. On the other hand, perhaps you can't really remember much of anything that happened in the near aftermath of tragedy. After receiving a phone call, informing you of a terrible accident, your whole world seemed to come to a screeching halt. In the days and weeks that followed, you wondered if you'd survive your own grief.

Mass shooting devastation leads to class action lawsuit petition

You may be one of many Hawaii residents who were shocked and dismayed last October when a mass shooting occurred in another state. Reporters labeled the tragedy the worst of its kind in the nation's history.

In this particular situation, the focus was on a particular product known as a bump stock.

How can morning sickness lead to birth defects?

Whether your pregnancy was a happy surprise or planned, you may have been elated to hear that you were going to have a child. Then, morning sickness kicked in, and you felt miserable.

When unfair practices and other illegal means begin to affect your business, your profits and your bottom line, you do not have to put up with it.

FDA-approved drugs don't tell the whole story

You may be among the many patients who felt relief to learn that medication could control your medical condition instead of resorting to more drastic measures such as surgery. When your doctor prescribed a relatively new drug, you probably felt no concerns because you knew the drug had received the approval of the Food and Drug Administration.

Can you trust the labels on your herbal supplements?

What does your morning routine look like? Do you eat a healthy breakfast, do a little cardio, spend some time in quiet meditation? For generations, health advocates have recommended these activities as part of a wellness regimen. Finally, before you leave for work, do you pop a ginseng supplement into your mouth, maybe some ginkgo biloba or a garlic supplement?
