A man who lost his eyesight twenty years ago has now regained nearly all of it, and doctors have no clue as to why. I don’t know if Kevin Coughlin’s diet, prayer, and meditation are the reason, but I wish him the best. He is getting the most sonderful Christmas present, isn’t he?
How many times do we have to be told this before we believe it? The anecdotal studies all the cholesterol nonsense is based upon are derived from a study done in the 1940’s when scientists did not even know there were two kinds of cholesterol.
If you take statins, make your doctor explain why he thinks you should. If he hasn’t also advised you to take CoQ10, ask him if he even knows how statins work. They destroy your body’s naturally produced CoQ10, so the next question is why he’s good with a chemical which destroys something your body obviously needs and doesn’t replace it. Then ask him what the first warning for a statin is. He should say “muscle cramps”. Then ask him what the most critical muscle in your body is. If he manages to say “the heart” without his head exploding you will at least now you have forced him to think. I would then get swiftly about the business of finding yourself another doctor, preferably one less likely to kill you by following the standard medical advice.
The medical profession has developed the same bug about cholesterol as it has about salt. The fact is that you need both in order to live. Without them you will die.
Not a cure, but quite possibly a treatment which will improve the lives of autism sufferers and their caregivers. I can’t see how this will lead researchers to the underlying causes , nor will it stop the avalanche of doctors and psychologists who diagnose “on the scale” on autism even when it is not justified, but any help at this stage is appreciated and valued.
Are proton pump inhibitors, such as Nexium, safe? Apparently they are if taken short-term, but long-term use can cause serious health problems. Plainly more research needs to be done, but if a short course of a PPI doesn’t fix your heartburn, you should look at alternative treatments.
I’m fortunate in that I seldom suffer heartburn, but when I do, a small piece of candied ginger generally fixes the problem. Most modern medicine is poison, but can be very helpful . I suggest you find a holistic health practitioner, who will not have as narrow a field of expertise as many modern physicians do, and may also have training in herbal medicine, which can be not only useful, but quite safe. Do your health homework!
There is a new treatment for breast cancer which is proving extremely effective, and offers fresh hope for those who suffer from this disease.
Two Israeli scientists at the Weizmann Institute in Israel promise an almost miraculous cure for prostate and perhaps other cancers. The cure, based on two decades of research by plant scientist Avigdor Scherz and cancer researcher Yoram Saloman is now in clinical trials at New York’s Sloan Kettering Cancer Center.
