Irritable Bowel Syndrome – What is it, What to do about it

It is an intestinal disorder.

Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) affects the large intestine. Signs and symptoms include cramping, abdominal pain, bloating, gas, and diarrhea or constipation, or both.

Only a small number of people have severe signs and symptoms.

Most people with IBS experience times when the symptoms are worse and times when they improve or even disappear completely.

Antibiotics – natural or not?

How did “antibiotics” so freely dispensed come about?

Well, Alexander Fleming, Scottish physician, biologist, pharmacologist and botanist returned from holiday on September 3, 1928, he looked at his petri dishes containing colonies of Staphylococcus, bacteria that cause boils, sore throats and abscesses  He found something unusual on one dish. It was dotted with colonies, save for one area where some mold was growing. The zone immediately around the mold (later identified as a rare strain of Penicillium notatum) was clear, the mold had secreted something that inhibited bacterial growth.  He found it was capable of killing a wide range of harmful bacteria.  And thus, Penicillan was created.  It was not till 1941 that it was developed enough to be used on a human.

It is now 76 years later, do we use anything other than mold, which is a type of fungus actually, and ….. well, the basis of the “modern” day antibiotics is still mold.

Now, even the CDC is telling people to look for fungus when the body is not getting well through standard medical treatment.

So, do you take these chemical antibiotics/mold or do you find something natural.  There is a host of things you could be taking.

See: What is an Antibiotic with a list of natural antibiotics.

Sinus Infection & Fungus

Time after time you hear from others or from yourself, that despite constant treatment with antibiotics, their sinus infection continues to return.

There are many symptoms, and it makes life miserable. No matter how often you go to the doctor and how many different antibiotics you try, nothing seems to work.

When a remedy doesn’t work, you are addressing the wrong problem.  Maybe it isn’t bacteria that is causing the infection.

Zika Virus, What is it? What should you do?

We now have another threat to our health in the term of another threatened “pandemic”.  This has been going on since the “bird flu”.   I believe we are supposed to get very afraid and run out to our medical doctor and get a vaccine.  At least that is how it appears.

I remember the dreaded “swine flu” which didn’t sound serous enough so they renamed it H2N1. or some combination of letters.   Now, this was all so bad that when the news heard that someone in LA had it, they rushed out to the Valley to interview the boy.  They couldn’t find him.  They finally located him in his backyard where he had a batting cage set up.  They asked him what it was like?   He said – “it’s the flu”.  No big deal.

Okay, so now we have the Zika Virus.  Call to arms, delegate our taxes to develop a vaccine.   Of course, this time, since some people get this virus and don’t even have symptoms, the target is the unborn child.

What is the truth?

Why Supplements Send People to the ER

Now that is scary, isn’t it?  Can the supplements I take be so bad for my health that I can wind up in the ER?

There was this quiz and I am skeptical that it wasn’t just written by the drug companies who want you to switch from taking things to build your health to taking their drugs.  But it might be someone with incorrect information trying to make sure you chose wisely.

Either way, here is an article written that evaluates this.
