Says McDonald: "Chiropractors are uniquely poised to work side-by-side with medical providers to assist patients with chronic pain and rehabilitation after injury. The increasing interest in holistic wellness, improved nutrition and non-drug based solutions to pain all coalesce now, creating the perfect scenario for a renaissance in chiropractic."

National Chiropractic Health Month: Benefits of Chiropractic Care
Clinician and Assistant Professor
St. Louis, MO or via phone
According to the CDC, more than 90 Americans die each day from opioid abuse and overuse, with many addictions beginning innocently enough as a means to reduce pain. In the wake of this national crisis, October marks National Chiropractic Health Month and offers an important opportunity to educate on the benefits of chiropractic care ? which utilizes a holistic approach, rather than drugs, for pain management and wellness ? and share patient success stories. Says Mattox: "Chronic pain is multi-faceted and requires a multidisciplinary, integrated health care approach. Chiropractic specifically can help curb opioid prescription rates through conservative care ? some patients get better with the trial of conservative care and never need the opioid prescription, and others tell us that, after starting chiropractic care, they no longer feel the need to take the opioids they were previously prescribed." Mattox is a Doctor of Chiropractic and has earned his Registered in Musculoskeletal Sonography (RMSK) certification.

5 Tips to Dramatically Improve PCOS
Laurentine ten Bosch
"Polycystic ovarian syndrome can be a painful and discouraging condition to deal with, but with the right attitude, an active lifestyle and a wholesome diet, you can minimize its severity and continue to live a vibrant, happy life."
Documentary filmmakers Laurentine ten Bosch and James Colquhoun created Food Matters TV, a revolutionary platform that gives people essential tools to take charge of their health. When Colquhoun's father became chronically ill in 2008, they quit their jobs to co-write and produce "Food Matters," an internationally acclaimed documentary about the medical and healthcare industries. Their revolutionary multi-media hub, Food Matters TV, has become a leading resource in the natural health world with over 54 million visitors since 2008. Their latest documentary, "Hungry For Change" (2012), reveals how the diet and processed food industries are the enemies of permanent weight loss, vibrant health and natural living. Since its premiere in March 2012, the film has been viewed by more than 1 million people worldwide. Colquhoun and ten Bosch both studied at the Global College of Natural Health in Santa Cruz, Calif. The duo dedicates their lives to transforming people's health and believe that "your body is worthy of good care and no one is more suitably qualified to care for it than yourself." Colquhoun was raised in Australia and ten Bosch is from Holland.

Approaching the Complex Topic of Circumcision
More Americans are asking questions about circumcision, but the information available is either overwhelming, incomplete, or one-sided. As a result, there is increased value in presenting all viewpoints and basic information on this complex topic. Chapin can discuss how to approach the topic with spouses, parents, friends, and doctors. Says Chapin: "A decade ago, the only people talking about circumcision were intactivists. Now it's become more mainstream, as evidenced by a stream of articles about it in the media. But it's still a difficult conversation for many people."
Chapin is a lawyer specializing in bioethics, and previously headed a successful nonprofit health plan for 25 years.

Promising Solutions for Terminal Illnesses Require Funding
Bridge to a Cure
"All the existing terminal-illness research has been focused on finding cures, and there are lots of promising solutions on the horizon that may only be a few years or a decade away. But this is too long to wait for kids who are sick now. We owe it to them to find a way to extend their lives until a cure is ready."
Martin, a children's advocate and author, writes books with his granddaughter Keira Ely, including the bestsellers "The Case of the Missing Crown Jewels" and "SuperClara ? a Young Girl's Story of Cancer, Bravery and Courage." Martin founded the nonprofit Bridge to a Cure Foundation to fund life-sustaining treatments for children suffering from terminal illness.

Stop-Loss and the Self-Funded Plan ? Why they Need Each Other, and Where do they Often Conflict?
The Phia Group, LLC
With many people opting for self-funded health plans, it's important to approach plans, contracts, and policies carefully in order to avoid falling into a trap. Says Bizarro: "One of the most important things a self-funded plan can do is to have their stop-loss contract thoroughly reviewed by a professional before they enter into the agreement ... Does the excess loss policy contain any definitions and/or exclusions which may be broader/narrower than those contained in the Plan? Is there any policy language that prioritizes the Plan Administrator's discretion or interpretation of language (over the excess loss carrier's, or vice versa)? Is there any general provision in the policy that provides that notice to and consent from the excess loss carrier is required in the event the Plan changes or modifies benefits or increases the Plan's exposure?"
Attorney Bizarro has written numerous articles on self-funded health plans for California Broker Magazine, The Self-Insurer, and BenefitsPro. As a member of The Phia Group's in-house legal team, Bizarro focuses on contract review, ERISA, ACA, and HIPAA compliance, claim negotiation, and providing general consultative advice on matters involving the health insurance industry and employee benefits law. He earned his B.A. from Boston University, graduating magna cum laude, and his J.D. from Boston University School of Law.

Growing Trend Towards Nontoxic Household Cleaning Products
Chief Executive Officer
"Just a few years ago, nontoxic cleaners were considered niche products, but today, they are moving into the mainstream as people become aware of what they're putting into their homes -- a lot like how people have become more aware of what they eat and the rise of organic foods. People don't want to use a bunch of harsh chemicals when they clean, especially those who have kids or pets. The problem is that nontoxic cleaners are often perceived as either ineffective or too expensive, or both. I believe that powerful, affordable, nontoxic cleaners are the future, and I see it in my own business as it grows."
Based in Austin, Texas, Eggemeyer grew his family-owned company from a one-product brand operating out of a garage in Midland, Texas, to a nationally distributed, leading brand of nontoxic household cleaners with 18 products that have transformed the cleaning product category and deliver a powerful, safe clean for every room in the house. Eggemeyer is available to discuss the growing trend towards nontoxic household cleaning products vs. traditional cleaners made with harsh chemicals.

"What's worse to have in your family's home ? dirt and grime or toxic chemicals? You can get rid of both through nontoxic cleaning solutions that really work and DIY hacks that make cleaning your house quick, easy and safe for the whole family."
Gates is available to share cleaning hacks covering DIY and nontoxic cleaning solutions, kids' cleaning chores, forgotten places to clean, etc. She focuses on family-centric, nontoxic household cleaning solutions that get the job done without the harsh chemicals. She received both her MBA and BBA from the McCombs School of Business at the University of Texas at Austin and has more than seven years of experience working with brands in the mass and grocery channels.

Dog Owners Are Happier People
President & CEO
"When we have the love of a dog in our lives, we are inspired to live more fully and actively on a day-to-day basis. Having a dog naturally requires us to spend more time outside, and many dogs are quick to make new friends, encouraging us to connect with others too. Now, studies are providing data demonstrating what dog caretakers everywhere already know: Dogs make human lives better."
Novello is founder of Mutual Rescue, a national initiative of Humane Society Silicon Valley (HSSV) that highlights the life-changing power of human-animal relationships. The initiative's first short film, "Eric & Peety," went viral around the world with 90 million views, prompting an influx of submissions to be considered for inclusion in the ongoing Mutual Rescue film series. Novello joined HSSV as president in 2010 after a year serving on their board of directors. Her work there has resulted in marked increases in the rescue organization's adoption numbers, save rates and the number of animals receiving care. A former senior software executive at Intuit, Novello earned her MBA from Harvard Business School and is proud to include three rescue animals in her family: a German Shepherd dog named Tess and two cats, Langley and Bodie. Connect with Novello or any of the people featured in a Mutual Rescue film for a compelling first-person adoption story.
