How to Get Rid of Vertigo
by Dr. Axe
January 18, 2016
Have you ever experienced vertigo? If so, you probably have wondered how to get rid of vertigo so it won't become a chronic problem. Try these six secrets.
Our ability to stay balanced is maintained by several systems, including: the sensorimotor control system (which controls our senses, such as our sight and hearing), the proprioception system (responsible for touch) and the vestibular system (helps us move without falling over). The inner ears obviously help us see, but they're also an important part of the vestibular system, which allows us to identify where we are in space.

November 9, 2015
Elevated blood pressure is when the pressure on the arteries and blood vessels becomes too high and the arterial wall becomes distorted causing extra stress on the heart.
Long term-high blood pressure increases the risk of stroke, heart attack and diabetes.

Methylfolate Makes Me Crazy
April 10, 2016
We've talked about the MTHFR mutant problem before (right here) but haven't really addressed the actual taking of methylfolate. We mutants are out there, walking among you unable to convert regular old folic acid into methylfolate.
I will stand with pride among you my brothers and sisters because yes, I too am a mutant. Deep shuddering sigh. As it turns out, using gene markers alone to plan a healthy nutritional protocol is not as straightforward as it would seem. The reason being that every system in the human body has a glorious level of redundancy - we are literally designed to fail in eight hundred ways and still function normally. Simply having the MTHFR mutation doesn't actually mean that high-dose methylfolate like Deplin® which is prescribed in either 7.5 mg or 15 mg doses is a good idea.

Sarah and her fiancé Richard wanted to have children as soon as they were married. Sarah had just been diagnosed with epilepsy, however, and was offered Phenobarbital as therapy. She and Richard read up on the drug, and now knew, as did their doctor, that pregnancy while taking a barbiturate was not ideal. "So we want to look into other options," Sarah said to me in the office. "Could vitamins replace the drug?"
