410281 tn?1254232664 I had a really good friend tell me once that "you have to be your own health advocate." I think of that everytime I procrastinate making a doctors appointment because I'm sure that I can't handle being told "stress can do strange things to your body..." or "if the chemicals aren't balanced..." or "suck it up!" again. Thus the question: How are you your own health advocate? How do you get through "limbo land" without snapping?
Avatar f tn In May, 2003, a mental health support group filed suit in the Federal Courts aimed at the Federal Minister of Health, Anne McLellan, and Health Canada alleging in the suit that Health Canada and the Minister have acted outside their statutory authority and jurisdiction, committed errors of law, and abused their discretion by seizing shipments of the nutritional supplement. 2.

675347 tn?1365464245 For most of us "CHEMTRAILS" sounds like a wacky thing. Like maybe some new-age weird idea, or conspiracy theory, or paranoia..... Oh no it isn't! Increasingly, blue skies, throughout the world are being criss-crossed with wide vaporous lines which are obviously not aircraft (contrail) trails. Quite often a huge area is covered with a nework of these "trails". Aluminium has been found -to highly toxic levels -in "pure" mountain melt-water....

Avatar m tn It is possible that there are ILADS-leaning MDs in the UK but they stay very very quiet to avoid trouble with the NHS. Same thing seems to happen in Canada, and also in some states in the US. You could try looking at the ILADS website and search there for UK or England, and I think there is also a referral function on the website that you fill in a location for and they will answer you. I also just did an online search for ilads england and found some interesting things.

Avatar n tn I have been diagnosed with keratoconus in both eyes and it is causing great visual impairment at an alarming rate. I live in canada, and the only available treatments are the hard contact lenses. After an unknown period of time this fails and eventually requires a cornea transplant surgury. There are many known complications with both these procedures.
Avatar m tn From little I found so far it appears that at least few years ago it was not performed anywhere in the US. A search for it in my health insurer directory came up with nothing. Is it currently performed in the US? What about Canada, Europe, or elsewhere in the world? Google search found two places in Moscow, Russia, where it is performed, and one reference in Ukraine, but very little details on their websites. Anybody had it done there?
514494 tn?1376514748 While lower blood pressure can result from these unique spinal adjustments, a host of other conditions related to the nervous system could respond favorably as well. As a practicing Upper Cervical Chiropractor, I’ve witnessed tremendous health changes in the patients seen in my own office. Among these changes are sleep disorders, which can often be related to nervous system malfunction. Approximately half of our patients report much improved sleep quality after their first spinal correction.
Avatar n tn I'll think about it some more, I'm a University student in Canada doing pre-med, so I have resources such as the Universities online medical journals. I wouldn't mind helping anyone with any specific ideas they might have, since I would enjoy having something to research.
179856 tn?1333550962 07.08 A lesson that has been shared with me in the past few days. In life, we must find creative and constructive ways to negotiate conflict. The only conflict-free existence is death. Forgiveness transcends painful memories and grievances and redirects this energy toward peaceful and creative coexistence. Nelson Mandela once said that not to forgive is "like drinking a glass of poison and waiting for your enemies to die". "The weak can never forgive.
1626211 tn?1333545410 I feel very grateful for my good health so I don't want to look a gift horse in the mouth, but I have read in several journals and articles that the disease is very active in the first few months after a CIS. I have also read that there is a pretty high risk of conversion to MS in the first six months. According to my last MRI (November 2011) I have 7-8 supratentorial white lesions and one lesion from C2 to the top of C4 on my spine.
1926359 tn?1331591739 They cannot get me in any sooner due to the high number of surgeries that had to be rescheduled twice due to my surgeon's absence and the fact that she is performing no surgeries in September. I see her in person on August 8th to try to devise a better treatment plan- an adjustment in hormones...A pain plan. I am devastated for several reasons- 1. I have been in acute pain going on 10 weeks now. My symptoms began in October of last year.
470885 tn?1326332637 I have a history of depression and health anxiety which presented when my older son was just over a year old and I returned to work following my year long mat leave (I'm in Canada). My doctor didn't use the term PPD when we talked today....he said "blues" - but I do feel that he's still taking me seriously. He told me that I need to do more for myself. Get out, exercise, etc. And if I start feeling any worse (or this doesn't get better), I'm to call him.
483733 tn?1326802046 The article below is taken from Best Health Magazine. I know I've read in some places that the nightshade vegetables can contribute to inflammation. I am personally not believing this and keep them in my diet. What do you think? Food for thought. Some popular diets suggest avoiding eggplants, tomatoes, peppers and potatoes. They’re wrong! By Rhea Seymour Sometimes even vegetables get a bad rap.
999891 tn?1407279676 I agree cmoeller, unfortunately it is the same world wide. I found this group in my area made up of both Patients and health care professionals who are defecated to providing support and advice for people who have had a bad experience with our health service, there is also a Syringomyelia Support group here but their web site has not been updated for months and was offline for ages.
Avatar n tn These tissue salts are harmless, so please, if you can get a hold of it, try it out (about $7-8 here in Canada at Loblaws). I only mean this in a good way, so please don't take offense to this when I say this with my best intention: Relieving yourself will most definitely bring other problems, if not contribute to a vicious cycle with the existing one (your esophagus will suffer, your stomach acids will eventually get totally messed up).
Avatar m tn Father-daughter talk This gently explains the difference in thinking between people with opposite outlooks. A young woman was about to finish her first year of college. Like so many others her age, she considered herself to be very liberal, and among other liberal ideals, was very much in favor of higher taxes to support more government programs, in other words redistribution of wealth. She was deeply ashamed that her father was a rather staunch conservative, a feeling she openly expressed.

Avatar dr m tn are continued by mouth for 7-10 days. We have made immense progress in pain management. There are profesionnal journals, seminars, associations dedicated to that sole purpose. Well, let's use these drugs and techniques! If such a protocol is not offered (which I would suspect it is not commonly), or if the client can't afford the added cost, then we are dealing with a different issue, -not whether declawing is humane or not.
Avatar n tn massive amounts, but she also ended up ill, with crazy things going on in her body. Diabetis all of a sudden, and other health issues. She finnaly died of kidney failure at age 60, and spend 50% of her life ill. I have been studying on and off for a couple of years the impact, or outcome of HCG shots, combined with a low calorie diet. I undestand that there is an impact to the immune system from taking HCG injections daily, over an extended period of time.
366811 tn?1217426272 I've received so many questions about privacy on and in Medhelp that I believe the time has come to disclose as much about it as I know, or think I know. The bottom line: very little -maybe NONE- of what we write on MH is private. By design, MH is a very open community. The only exceptions to this of which I am immediately aware are photos and journal entries which may be marked as visible to only you or only your friends (or the default: "everyone").
367831 tn?1284262544 BROADER DEFINITIONS Each successive edition of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders--the bible of mental health--has revised the criteria for identifying autism in ways that tend to include more people. Two conditions on the milder end of the autistic spectrum--Asperger's syndrome and the awkwardly named PDD-NOS (pervasive developmental disorder, not otherwise specified)--were added to the DSM in 1994 and 1987, respectively. CLAUDIA WALLIS Is the Autism Epidemic a Myth?
Avatar m tn Americans don't live longer than people in other countries because the innovations that get funded in America get used around the world. In Canada and some European countries drugs are sold for lower prices than in the US. Drug companies make most of their profits and therefore get most of their revenue to fund research by selling products in the United States.The United States is subsidizing medical research for the rest of the world. That is my point, so tone down the smug factor.
233488 tn?1310696703 Incredibly many physicians and the public have misinterpreted Pheidippides’ fatal run as healthful. In 2014 there are 739 marathons scheduled in the United States and Canada. It is estimated that over a half million people will complete a marathon this year. 100 mile ultra-marathons are common and worldwide months long extreme-endurance races of over 3000 miles exist.
