The OTC Med. That Can Kill You: New warning admits popular painkiller causes liver damage, death...
by Jonathan Benson
December 24, 2016
It has been a common household name in over-the-counter pain relief for more than 50 years, but the popular painkiller drug Tylenol is getting a major labeling makeover following a string of personal injury lawsuits.
Even when taken at recommended doses, acetaminophen, the primary active ingredient in Tylenol, can cause major damage to the liver, potentially leading to liver failure and even death. In fact, acetaminophen is currently the leading cause of sudden liver failure in the U.S., as its toxic metabolites have been shown to kill liver cells. The drug is so toxic that as many as 80,000 people are rushed to the emergency room annually due to acetaminophen poisoning, and another 500-or-so end up dead from liver failure.

Rhett Earhart lies calmly as chiropractor Cecelia Mikles runs her hands down his spine. When Mikles reaches the bottom of his spine, she notices a little curve to the left. She extends Rhett's legs so they're straight and checks their length.
Rhett, who is 13 months old, is just learning to walk. But he's been a patient of Mikles since he was just 6 days old. "I just want him to be healthy," Dearey said. The Vancouver mom isn't alone in that desire, nor is she alone in seeking infant chiropractic care. A 2007 study estimates there are 30 million pediatric chiropractic visits each year.

by Sonia Azad

There is no cracking or aggressive movement involved in NSA. Lewis and business partner Amy Gunderson focus on gentle, precise touch to your spine and the connective tissues around it. "I honestly was at a point where I was willing to try anything," said Madeline Kiefer, who calls NSA a lifesaver.
Trouble sleeping? Experts say skip antihistamines
For people who take an antihistamine such as Benadryl for a cold or allergies, drowsiness is often a welcome side effect. But a Baylor College of Medicine sleep expert cautions against turning to this type of medication as a sleep aid.
"Many allergy sufferers know that antihistamines work for their symptoms but also make them sleepy. People sometimes turn to these medications to help them sleep, even when they're not sick. But the use of medication to force children or adults to sleep is generally not the best idea," said Dr. Philip Alapat, assistant professor of medicine.

Has The Cause of Crib Death (SIDS) Been Found?
by Jane Sheppard
December 6, 2016
Sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS), also known as crib death or cot death, is the number one cause of death for infants from one month to one year of age. 90% of all SIDS deaths are in babies under six months old.
Dr. James Sprott, OBE, a New Zealand scientist and chemist, states that crib death is caused by toxic gases, which can be generated from a baby's mattress. He says chemical compounds containing phosphorus, arsenic and antimony have been added to mattresses as fire retardants and for other purposes since the early 1950's. A fungus that commonly grows in bedding can interact with these chemicals to create poisonous gases (Richardson 1994).
14 Reasons To Take Oregano Oil: Benefits
December 5, 2016
Have you already heard about the traditional oregano spice for Mediterranean diet? The Latin name of the plant, dried leaves of which Italians willingly add to your pizza - is «Origanum majorana». Strictly speaking, this is wild oregano.
But today we will focus on other species of the family Lamiaceae. Meet oregano (lat. «Origanum vulgare»), - the oil of this plant. It has amazing beneficial properties, some of which was known centuries ago. The ancient Greeks, for example, called oregano as "The pleasure of the mountain" and used it for the treatment of infectious diseases. Oregano oil kills bacteria, fungal and yeast infections, expels parasites from the body and fights viruses.
Ocular Migraine Causes, Symptoms: Home Remedies For Migraine Relief

"If in doubt, try nutrition first."
by Dr. Andrew Saul
"Most epileptics are magnesium deficient. I wish I had found this out 40 years ago. Now I can even drive a car and ride a bike. It is so wonderful not to have seizures anymore plus not have to depend on drugs all the time and of course be free of drugs.
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?"
