Avatar f tn I've also read that cinnamon is effective in regulating blood sugar, especially in type 2 diabetes. It can be toxic in very high doses (but most things probably can). I also saw on CNN that cinnamon put on food (not in cap form) is not as effective due to the saliva interacting with it, so the capsules are supposed to be more effective. I was going to start putting it on my food instead of buying the caps until I heard that.
Avatar m tn Sugary Drinks Add to Global Death Rates By Chris Kaiser, Cardiology Editor, MedPage Today Published: March 20, 2013 Action Points This study was published as an abstract and presented at a conference. These data and conclusions should be considered to be preliminary until published in a peer-reviewed journal. That pick-me-up sugary soda may ultimately put you 6' under, given findings that linked nearly 200,000 deaths worldwide in 2010 with sugar-sweetened beverages.
Avatar m tn Fiber plays a key role in the report, since it has been shown to help prevent cardiovascular disease, cancer, diabetes, and obesity. Given how rich in fiber fruits, vegetables, and grains are, we're excited to see that a plant-based diet could be getting unprecedented attention as a healthy way to boost your fiber. A nod towards plant-based eating isn't the only twist in this report. They also say that dietary cholesterol isn't the threat people once thought it was.
429700 tn?1308011423 She said no, but then told me that she heard from her mom that her grandfather had been sick with a 'mysterious illness' that had left him half-paralyzed in his late 30s, 'after being working in the backyard in a hot afternoon'. This was in a small town in pre-WWII Latin America, so people thought he had been cursed or was just making things up. He improved and got worse over time now and then and, after a few years, passed away.
931217 tn?1283484935 If it is false, which I believe it is, it is at best a benign placebo, but as you shall read in the embedded link, it is at worst a harmful form of charlatanism, perpetrated on people (and animals owned by like minded people) who are at their most vulnerable and at risk. That is an immoral circumstance. The fact that all is not known in medical science, and that some disease cannot be cured, much less palliated, does not justify selling fraud infused with false hope.
Avatar n tn Ramos-Casals of Hospital Clinic, Barcelona and colleagues, using data from Spain and Latin America, identified 82 cases of antiphospholipid syndrome in patients with viral infection.

643717 tn?1224557818 It is totally doable and subs seem to have the effect you describe somewhere after around 3-6 years, depending on the individual. In Latin America, they call the people on subs a long time, bupe zombies. Stick with us and you can be free. Please, start your own thread.

Avatar m tn Now try this on -- right now there's a drug in trial for genotype 1's showing close to 60% response rates in only 24 weeks. Hopefully, that drug, Telaprevir will be on the market in a couple of years. Do you really think it's irresponsible to share an opinion that those geno 1's with little or no liver damage should consider waiting for these drugs? What would you advise a geno 1 friend with little or no liver damage? Would you give them both sides of the story or just tell them to treat?
Avatar n tn Would you have some testimonies, books or adresses to advice us in order to be updated in the comprehension of these sides effects and their potential treatments ? Any information will really be of great help, With my best regards.
Avatar m tn I can feel them crawling under my skin, they hang out in my ear (not sure if under the skin or just in the canal) all day, it's gross. No one in the house (my wife and 3 kids) can feel them. My wife has bites all up and down her legs and even a protruded ring looking this on her forearm. As you might have imagined I'm loosing my mind and life, nothing is the same.
Avatar n tn For a physical and get tested for thyroid, diabetes, celiac disease and I guess a herpes blood test (in reference to an above comment) I am going to ask to be referred to a gyno and dermatologist while I am there. Next, I am going to cleanse myself and hopefully purge anything in my body that is causing this. I am going to start with a bowel cleanser and then a liver cleanser. I am going to put myself on a strict diet and of course get off the nicorette and stop the occassional cheating.
Avatar f tn In Asia, East Asia, Africa, and Latin and South America, it is accepted by society and almost everyone believes in it. In fact when traditional medicine does not work, people then typically do go do "healers" to remove black magic. As I did my research, my suspicions were confirmed. I then had to choose the path of my healing. And it is only with the breaking of the black magic spell that I found any relief. There is no limit to what black magic can do.
Avatar m tn Yes, my spot shows up in the Amsler grid. It is in the upper right quadrant. It appears as a whole, with the grid lines becoming slightly distorted as they "fall into" the whole. Yes, I can see through the spot. It is not a totally blocked scotoma. Sometimes it appears light grey. Other times it is almost pinkish. Sometimes blue. It looks very much like the afterimage of a bright light and goes through the same variations of color. But it is never a black, opaque spot.
Avatar n tn tea in America. Herbal teas are in a different category. Purists don't even call them tea at all. Black, green and white teas all come from the same plant. If you're allergic to one, you're allergic to the other. If you are able to switch to green tea or white tea because of the lower caffeine content, do yourself a favor and read the information about green tea on mercola.com.
Avatar f tn I have gained 60 pounds over the last year and a half [thinking it's due to lack of sleep as well as chocolate cravings that are unbearable!] I have no sex drive at all, in fact I got married a year and a half ago and we have had sex once - that is not like me at all - before meno I had a high sex drive! But the biggest issue for me with meno is the tiredness I have. I am just so tired I can't do anything!
Avatar n tn I do feel in control of my depression but I seem to have no control over my weight. I am hopeful that after I am off the drug 100% that my body will return to some kind of normal - fingers crossed! Please everyone keep posting - I want to know how things are going for you too. Thanks.
Avatar n tn Hi I m a 28 year old and suffer some degree of ED in recent. I start masturbated since I m 19 and usually use porn as a form of visual stimiulation. I have observed that I have lost the ability to maintain erect during intercource or I only get weak erection. My question is: does masturbation in association with porn will "exhaust" my interest towards sex and create a negative impact on my ability to get aroused in real sex?
