931415 tn?1244681111 Unfortunately, in marked contrast, Oprah has about as close to no critical thinking skills when it comes to science and medicine as I’ve ever seen, and she uses the vast power and influence her TV show and media empire give her in order to subject the world to her special brand of mystical New Age thinking and belief in various forms of what can only be characterized as dubious medical therapies at best and quackery at worst.
Avatar n tn I have yet to find a definite answer, though I have had my hormones tested and discovered all of my hormones are out of balance. I'm in the process of trying bioidentical hormone replacement to see if that helps. Hope you find some answers.

14470851 tn?1434688164 Hi, I am a mother of three. When the news of the spread of counterfeit medicines was released, I was literally shocked and I even panicked to the point that I even used herbal medicines for my children in fear of using the wrong drugs. How am I to know which one is a fraud? Can you please help me?
Avatar m tn Weeks of Washington state and he uses both LDN and IV lipoic acid, plus IV phosphatidylcholine, glutathione, human placenta extract, B complex, Folic acid, B12 and megadose vitamin C.

748543 tn?1463449675 For the past few weeks I have been throwing around ideas as to the best way to respond to this matter. You see a recent article ( Feb.3 , 2009 NY times) titled "Best treatment for TMJ May be Nothing" nearly made me clench my jaw to pieces. While well written, I found that the author, Ms. Brody, relied heavily on out dated and narrow perspective supplied to her by a small group of dentists.

1530171 tn?1448133193 I am so excited to come across this post as I'm all for natural stuff instead of loading my body with more medicines. I have trouble sleeping because of Fibro pain and also have extreme fatigue. I plan on doing the Magnesium Transdermal Therapy and the Malic acid supplement . I have been searching online and looks like most of the Malic acid supplements come with Magnesium. Can I take these supplements while using the Tansdemal Magnesium oil?
Avatar m tn "--273 out of 358, that is 76% ("S" seroconverted)" 76%, that's it? In seriousness, I could find a cure with above 90% "S" seroconversion with labs and labs charts to back it up in herbal stores in all three of NYC's Chinatown. Does this impress anyone? "which spontaneous seroconversion turns HBcAB negative" It doesn't. But actually, this reinforces shady labs, not a cure.

Avatar n tn This stops the pain impulses from ever reaching her brain. Now, she uses 2% (two) of the morphine she used to take orally, and has had her life transformed. Could you be helped by something like this?
Avatar n tn I am not a young woman and a mother myself, and can tell you, there is absolutely no question of the mother's love and commitment. I have oftentimes been amazed by how much this mother DOES for and LOVES her daughter. It is out of love that she is looking for other alternatives. But no one feels shame or guilt ... that's not even part of this. In my research and taking the time to read through this forum, it is out of the respect I have for the people here that I posted my question.
Avatar f tn I have gone to a Chinese herbalist, and I tried Butterbur, as well as an herbal oil I put on a Q tip and sort of line the inside of my nose with, that does help slightly some days. This really hurts my ability to work, I am a realtor, and I have opened the door to some homes, hit with a horrid odor, and unable to go inside! I have had to let the clients go in while I wait outside, because I can't handle the stench.
Avatar m tn Read lots on the net about past and present pharma and natural herbal therapys,side effects and degrees of success on both sides. Without being derogatory, I'll call'em the Suits and the Hippies. The Suits have some very convincing momentum in the battle against HVC for us but at a cost, both financial and side effect prone with varying success.

Avatar m tn Just move from state of trying to fit in and please other people into state of just existing and enjoying the moment. Let life take care and balance your energy. My other theory is that all the negativity in our self is just being carried over to others who prob need that energy to balance ourselves.
97676 tn?1340408973 I see that the price on her web site is 8 easy payments of about $60 each -that's $480 buckos. And I see that Ebay has it for about half that or less. So that gives you of an idea of how the market values it when a "free economy" is involved. And I also see that to even FIND the price on her web site involves some digging -so it appears to me she's a bit nervous about presenting her price right up front (and she's all about NOT being nervous -go figure).
Avatar n tn I'd insist on bloodwork b4 the 3week mark given your symptoms ... I finally leveled out at 88mcgs after 11 mos of ups/downs and combos of strength of Synthroid and my TSH is 1.7 and I feel ok. I had a partial 1/07 and the other side stopped working which sometimes happens. WELCOME TO ALL those new names on this thread!!!
Avatar n tn 5) An improper diet, which probably includes many of the items noted above, along with a lot of baked goods, sodas and candies, and a lack of consistent aerobic exercise, will most likely not help any reported problems. Now, as much as everyone would love a quick fix to all of their problems, change is something that happens gradually.
Avatar n tn I did some reading about toxins in the body and found out that fat may also be a mix of cellular waste, water, unprocessed hormones and other nasty stuff. I guess if your liver is metabolizing this fat, kidneys have to work over time to remove this extra waste. Some might end up back in the bloodstream and you would feel icky. Sort of like the drain backing up in your basement. As I understand it, constantly flushing the kidneys is a good thing.
Avatar n tn I have pulled out all my beautiful hair to catch a bug.I have bottles of the fly and every stage of growth and I am in the process of sending them to the bug olosist for him to identify. For me I beleive the fly had laid eggs in a cut on my scalp and the hatch eggs every 2 or 3 weeks, by the way i have spent alot of money for doctors to say i am on drugs and or crazy and they see nothing. but the facts are I got tired of these flies flying out wherever i went, I got my mothers house invested.
Avatar f tn I don't know if my shakes are due to meds or just part of the disease. So many effects of the disease and so little knowledge about it. I hope someone can advise you a little better, I feel for you, 24/7 must be wearing for you. All the best.
Avatar n tn I've had the same thing happening to me for the past couple of years and it seems to get worse over time. I've been taking 500mg of niacinamide and 750mg of GABA twice a day and it definitely helps some.

Avatar n tn They appear on my hands, fingers,palms, and sometimes even the back of my hands and my wrists. When they pop, they have clear fluid and then dry up and the area around it gets scaly. And then they'll go away for a while and then all of a sudden i'll have dozens of them! Any new advice for them? So glad to see that im not the only one!!!!!
Avatar n tn pressure point message), Physical Therapists (waste of money) and a Neurologist that is currently performing acupuncture. I self medicate with Ibuprofen, and sleep on an ice pack every night. In addition, I lay on a baseball and roll over the rhomboid muscle while stretching to break up the spasms for some relief, the ball hits an area that feels like a rope that is in a horizontal position across the rhomboid.
