Small businesses need effective,
low-cost marketing strategies, and
tools like Facebook and Twitter de-
liver megahits for microbudgets. Yet
while many business owners are be-
ing advised to engage customers via
social media, not all are informed of
the risks.
Social network sites are fertile wa-
ters for Internet pirates who troll for
unsuspecting victims, hoping to steal
data by planting malware in the form
of computer viruses, worms, Trojan
horses and spyware.
If you are a small-business owner,
work for one or hope to become one,
these tips can help keep your business
data secure:
nShare carefully. Clearly identify
what kind of business information
should be on social networks. Dont
post confdential information, such
as fnancial information, passwords
or anything else you would not want
shared.
n Guide employees. Develop a
social media policy on the potential
risks and ways to participate safely.
Include personal and professional
best practices, and teach your people
how to avoid scams. Remind employ-
ees to limit personal comments to
their own personal pages.
n Beware new twists. Thirty per-
cent of all viruses that infect comput-
ers originate from spam, targeting us-
ers with seemingly legitimate posts,
such as I just checked how many
people have viewed my profle. Cy-
ber thieves target easy victims frst:
individuals and organizations that
havent adequately protected their
computers, networks, mobile devices,
Wi-Fi and Internet connections. An-
other technique is likejacking or
clickjacking: When users click on
a link, the site steals their Facebook
account and spreads the spam to all
their contacts.
n Dont automatically click on
URL links. If an offer in a social post
sounds too good to be true Click
here to win an iPad it probably is.
n Protect your passwords and
privacy. Using the same password on
every site can easily expose your busi-
ness to account takeover. If that pass-
word is hacked or leaked, hackers can
access your other site information.
Instead, use different, strong alpha-
numeric (both letters and numbers)
passwords for each of your social me-
dia accounts and keep them regularly
updated.
nStay current with cybersecurity.
Keeping your computer security up-
dated is the smartest way to elevate
your defenses against cybercrime. De-
luxe Security Solutions is a good se-
curity resource for current protection
products and services such as McAfee
AntiVirus Plus 2012, which defends
against online viruses, malware and

The Arthritis Cure
Many years ago I read, The Arthritis Cure by Joseph Theodosakis MD. It was my rst understanding that one could do something about
joint pain besides taking Motrin and Steroids. Since then I have found many great ways to actually rebuild the joints. This condition has a
long functional period before actual pathology or damage occurs in the joints. But even the pathology can be reversed in many cases.
Not all joint pain is arthritis, but that is what we tend to call it. A joint has many parts and to x the problem each needs to be
addressed. The bone ends are covered with cartilage. This is covered with a slippery membrane call the synovium. Surrounding each joint
are the capsule and ligaments that hold the bones in proper alignment. This lining of the joint capsule is lled with a lubricating gel made
from hyaluronic acid. Running across the joints are tendons that connect the muscle to the bones. The bones are covered by a membrane
call the periostium to which the tendons attach. Inside the joints, underlying the tendons are bursa. These are small gel lled sacks that
act like pulleys to lubricate a variety of structures to make for smooth pain-free operation. A problem with any of these tissues can cause
pain in the joints.
The most common joint pains are caused by wear and tear of the cartilages, ligaments, and tendons that hold the joints together. It
is important to note that all of these tissues are made of collagen which tends to have very poor blood supple. As a result, most of the
nutrients are supplied by diffusion through the tissues and not through tiny capillaries like muscle, bone, skin, etc. So, collagen structures
tend to repair slowly.
The slight concussion of mild exercise supports this diffusion of nutrients.
To make collagen our body goes through many steps. Two of these steps produce chondroitin and glucosamine. If we add these
directly to our diet we can increase the production of collagen and repair our cartilages faster. Dietary sources are Jell-O or gelatin and
animal cartilage or gristle from meat. Most of us do not eat much Jell-O and most throw away the cartilage. So adding a supplement
containing these will be very helpful (avoid chondroitin if you have a high PSA or prostate cancer). The third ingredient needed is
MSM. This helps break down the damaged collagen so it can be replaced with new. All three are in Osteo-Bi-Flex or Ever Flex by NSP.
Another important nutrient is Omega 3 from sh oil or ax seed oil. This acts as an anti-inammatory and also helps in the production of
the lubricating gel in the joint. Both, sh oil and axseed oil have benets, so we often recommend taking one or two of each once or
twice daily. The production of lubricating gel can also increased by dietary hyaluronic acid. We like Baxyl or Hyaluronan which is a stable,
absorbable form.
If there are spurs (calcication of the ligament and tendon attachments) present, the joints will be stiff and
painful, especially in the mornings. Small hard nodules may occur over the knuckles. These can be dissolved by
using herbal Hydrangea three times per day and Homeopathic Calcerea Carbonicum 6C or Heckla Lava 6C one
per day. Depending on how many spurs are present, 80% of them can be completely dissolved in three to six
months.
Taking these supplements ([Chondroitin, Glucosamine, and MSM-repair the cartilage], [Omega3 Oil and
Hyaluronan-make more lubricating gel], [Hydrangea, and Hom. Calc.Carb 6C or Heckla Lava 6C-dissolve bone
spurs]), following the blood type diet (to remove the inammatory foods from the diet), and doing mild exercise
(stretching and yoga type exercise, no high impact) will cure most cases of joint pain in three to six months.
Fortunately, you do not have to take these supplements forever. It is a good idea to take photos of your ngers
before you start. Send them to the Healing Center so we can see changes too.
