Pasture-Raised, Chiropractically Adjusted Meat
Know Your Foods
Know Your Food (KYF) sells grass-fed, antibiotic-free, hormone-free, pasture-raised and chiropractically adjusted meat. Most people are not able to raise their own animals for meat due to lack of space or living in an urban setting.
KYF provides an option for consumers to make the initial investment in an animal, which means they have ownership of the animal. In the case of cows, an individual buys the mother cow, and when her calves are old enough, the consumer receives meat for the whole family to eat.
The calves are born, raised and finished on open pasture, spending their life in a peaceful setting, and receiving veterinary and chiropractic care along the way. The initial investment can last anywhere from 10 to 15 years; as long as the mother cow is producing calves. Participants just eat their food; they know their food is healthy and was raised humanely.

Thermography is Not Just for Breasts
The Thermography Center
Regulation thermography (RT) is unique in that it detects dysfunction using a temperature response and provides a multi-page, highly detailed, analytical report on the whole body, including the breasts. For 15 years, the Thermography Center of Dallas has performed thousands of non-invasive thermography screenings on patients, which comprise a complete analysis of the body, especially for breast health. Unlike with mammography, there is no pain, compression or radiation of the breasts.
Because RT evaluates the function of organs and systems, it can show the real-time development and progression of disease, unlike X-ray or MRI. Used by a trained thermographer, RT can reveal where disease may be obscured and reports on all the internal organs, glands, lymph system, breasts and teeth in detail.
