Gratitude and your Mood

 

By Alicia Maher, M.D.

 

One of the central tenets of Thanksgiving- gratitude, offers us a powerful tool for changing our mood.

Prolotherapy causes proliferative cells to migrate to the weakened area, targeting the problem.

Chronic joint pain is an astronomically common condition, especially given our aging population. In fact, ...
