Scary Results From Last Week’s Email

 

We’ve had a ton of feedback on last week’s email, and the truth is pretty scary–dangerous drug/herb interactions, improper use of herbs and supplements, and more are happening all too commonly. We also discovered that not everyone discloses or remembers everything they are taking when they fill out the physician intake forms at our clinic or their other primary doctor’s offices. We want to stress how vital it is that your medical professionals know everything that you are taking, down to your powdered green supplements. Because we are concerned that there are more of […]

How Ebola’s Most Lethal Aspect Works
And What’s the Rest of the Story?
“As noted by (renowned viral expert) Dr. Robert Rowen, Ebola hijacks your immune system and suppresses it. Once your immune system realizes the virus is there, it launches a cytokine storm, and it is this cytokine storm that leads to massive tissue destruction and capillary leakage.” – Dr. Mercola’s article published on 11-4-14
Sensationalism and Fear abound in the news media about this potentially-deadly disease. And, it’s time for a dose of Natural Medicine and Sanity on this topic, don’t you think? First of all, here are some of […]

Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine for Autoimmune Disorders

Over 50 million Americans suffer from autoimmune disease. An autoimmune disease occurs when the body’s immune system attacks healthy tissue. Autoimmune disorders include rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, thyroid disease, Addison’s disease, pernicious anemia, celiac disease, multiple sclerosis, myasthenia gravis and Guillain-Barré syndrome. This is real suffering…and there is a LOT of it out there, but few real answers. Most of the standard treatments in Western Medicine have unpleasant or even dangerous side effects. The problem is they are not solving the problem…and they can be causing others.

Due to the complexity of treating autoimmune disorders, […]

Medication mistakes causing hospitalizations.

By David Martin – Acupuncture Physician, practicing Holistic medicine, in Fort Myers, Naples, Cape Coral.

A recent study released by the New England Journal of Medicine found that for people 65 and older an estimated 99,000 visits to the emergency room can be contributed to adverse drug events, between 2007 and 2009. Of this number half were over 80 years of age.  Two thirds of the hospitalizations were due to unintentional overdoses. The top four medications responsible for these visits are Warfarin (33%), insulin (14%) antiplatelet agents (13%) and oral hypoglycemic agents (11%).

What Killed Seymour?

The death last month of actor Seymour Hoffman raised the awareness in our nation that there may be a direct connection between prescription painkillers and heroine use.  Indeed, there are plenty of studies providing evidence of this.

Not only that, but researchers have been gathering shocking data about the over prescription, inappropriate prescription (e.g. to pregnant women!), and overuse of painkillers.   People get hooked on the painkillers, and then when they can’t get the prescriptions, some resort to street drugs.  That’s what killed Seymour.  He apparently got a super powerful batch of heroine, and the needle was […]

Prostate and hair growth drugs raise the Risk of Prostate Cancer.

A recent article in Reuters discussed several drugs that can increase your risk of Prostate cancer.  This group of Drugs include Proscar, Avodar, Jalyn, and Propecia.  I thought it would be useful to blog about this and provide a link to the article.  These drugs lower  the odds of getting a lower risk form of prostate cancer  but increase the risk of getting a more virulent form.
