A runner ’ s hysterectomy recovery – Jo ’ s story
The post A runner’s hysterectomy recovery – Jo’s story appeared first on Hysterectomy Association. At 47, for eighteen months I’d been suffering excruciating pain every time I went to the loo. Sometimes, the pain was so horrendous that I would find myself subconsciously stopping myself midflow. Other things began to happen too; my constipation that I had suffered for many years at the time of my period became a permanent problem and I had a constant pain in my left groin that seemed to worsen when I sat for any length of time. An internal scan and an MRI scan drew a blank. Thankfully I had a fantast...

Amid Pollution Problems, China's Health Food Industry Blossoms
At first glance, the World Health Store seems like any other health nut’s paradise: Shelves are cramped neck-high with supplement bars, whey protein for bodybuilders, Nature’s Bounty Evening Primrose Oil and Navitas Naturals Chia Powder. But this is Beijing, and the store that used to serve almost entirely a health-conscious foreign clientele now has so many Chinese customers that they’re nearly outnumbering foreigners. “Questions around the safety of water, food and air in China have made people much more health-conscious,” says Howard He, a store manager. That growing fear of China’s ...

What Is Evening Primrose Oil? What Is Evening Primrose Oil Used For?
Evening Primrose Oil is extracted from seeds of the evening primrose plant (Oenothera biennis) - a wildflower that grows in eastern and central North America. Originally, evening primrose was used by Native Americans to make poultices and heal wounds. It was also traditionally eaten and used as a leaf vegetable. Nowadays evening primrose is mainly used for the production of its oil, which has a range of therapeutic properties.

Director's Message: Herbal Products: Be an Informed Consumer
As I mentioned in my January 2013 Director’s message, many visitors to the NCCAM website seek information about herbal products, such as evening primrose oil, St. John’s wort, fenugreek, echinacea, and aloe vera. And, while some herbs have had more research, others have had very little. This not only means we may be unaware of whether the herb has any potential benefits, it also means that we may know very little about potential harms, such as herb-drug interactions.
