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.

What is Reflux, GERD and Heartburn?

Have you ever suffered from heartburn, felt acid in your throat or having had this repeatedly told you you had a disease called GERD?   GERD stands for Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease.

Where you told that your stomach had too much acid and given antiacid medications?  Did it work?

Where you told that it was due to a problem with the valve at the top of the stomach?  What remedies where you given?

Well, here is anew look at these ailments, what really happens and what you can do about it which brings relief.

What do your Medical Tests Show?

Have you ever been confused because the doctor says there is nothing wrong with you, yet you feel terrible?  You know someone that had to have bypass surgery due to the fact that he had a lot of blockage?  The procedure saved his life.  But, why didn’t they catch it when it was 75% blockage of 50% or 30%.

A medical doctor will consider that a person is “healthy” if they don’t have a disease.  Their tests are designed to find disease.   This means that sometimes drastic measures need to be used to save a life.

What about health?   Isn’t it better to keep healthy?  Isn’t that the ultimate health insurance?   What you eat counts.  Getting exercise counts.   What do you need to do?

What is the difference between Structural Medicine (drugs and surgery) and Functional Medicine.   Treating disease as opposed to building health.

The Diet of the Plague

Most of us have heard about the 1300s plague or Black Death, or Bubonic Plague. I didn’t know much about it so watched a special on TV. At the end of the show, they talked about how it was the microbes that created this problem, and that man’s deadliest enemy was the microbe. I thought that was a strange idea and wasn’t sure what they were selling except maybe “fear”.

Now, an interesting part of the show talked about how after 1/2 of the population was killed by the plague, that there was more food to go around and they even had luxury foods like fruit, vegetables and meat. What? Luxury foods? Yes, it seems that before the bubonic plague, the diet of most of the populace was grains. If you follow it back that was because there had been a famine earlier. Not enough food. Now what does that type of diet do to the immune system? If you read about the plague it affected the lymph glands. What was the cause of this epidemic?

I’m sure I can find out more about this and will be writing more, but seriously, although I know that some people claim that grains are good for you (mostly the people who grow and process grains) that sort of diet is not healthy. The immune system would be compromised. So, man’s deadliest enemy isn’t the microbe, but the fact that he allows himself to eat foods that would lower his immunity and become effect of these microbes.

Here is a new article about the Diet of the Plague, What Went Wrong?

How Do Drugs Create Side Effects?

Anyone who has watched a drug commercial on TV has heard the long list of possible side effects that goes along with taking the drug.

The only reason I can think that someone would still want to take a drug is that they either don’t believe it or have a gambler’s desire to play the odds.

A Balanced Diet – How do you start?

Been doing a lot of study lately on the type of foods we should be eating, and what it will do for health.

It’s much better to eat a good diet, then to deal with the consequences of nutritional deficiencies and the health problems they create.   Underlying all else should be a good diet.
