Minimally-invasive migraine treatment for adults works on kids, too
[Image from Tagosaku on Flickr]Migraine treatment that has been safe for adults has recently proven to be safe for use in children as well. The minimally-invasive treatment only takes a few minutes for children and teenagers to be able to feel the effects. The treatment involves a sphenopalatine ganglion (SPG) block that does not need needles. It uses a small, flexible catheter that is put into each nostril that delivers a local anesthetic to the SPG, which has often been considered the nerve bundle that causes migraines, that is in the back of the nose. The treatment disables the SPG and resets the headache circuit, reduc...

Don't Repeal Me, Please!
I am luckier than most. After 20 years of having multiple sclerosis I am still relatively healthy. I have a spot on my foot which is mildly numb most of the time and markedly numb when I have an exacerbation. This is damage I got from not treating an exacerbation with steroid therapy. Sometimes when I am dancing I can feel weakness in my legs, but I still dance. I will always dance. Heat and I have a love/hate relationship. I love a sauna in January. That first sweat is such a cleansing feeling. But a prolonged heat wave in summer will sap me like an iPhone battery. I have extreme vertigo whenever I ride a canoe, an amusem...

Many people who live to be 100 or more have something in common. And it’s not that they’ve followed conventional “wisdom” about healthy diet and exercise. It’s that their bodies make more of a powerful antioxidant called glutathione than the average person. It’s what keeps them from being ravaged by the toxic world we live in. Glutathione is an important antioxidant produced by the body By now you know your body is under attack every day from the air you breathe, the chemicals you use, and the processed foods you eat.

Chelation Remains A Hopeful Heart Therapy
Maybe you know someone who has suffered a heart attack. You're concerned about their well-being, particularly if they're diabetic or suffered a large heart attack. You want to make sure that absolutely everything that can help this loved one stay healthy and alive is discussed with their doctors. Odds are very high, however, that there's one promising therapy the doctor won't tell them about: chelation therapy. Chelation therapy was designed decades ago to trap and remove serious environmental toxins like arsenic. While using it, some practitioners noted improvements in symptoms of heart disease, and chelation began to...

IV Therapy “Cocktail” For a Cancer Patient
Today, I want to talk to you about my patient D.B. A key treatment I offer at the Sears Institute for Anti-Aging Medicine turned her life around and boosted her chances of recovering from cancer. D.B had been a vivacious 47-year-old woman, who’d always led a healthy life. For years, she’d watched her diet carefully and exercised regularly. But then she was diagnosed with endometrial cancer. This is cancer of the inner lining of the uterus. When she came to my clinic, she’d already undergone a hysterectomy and chemotherapy. Unsurprisingly, she felt terrible. She was pale. She felt lethargic and she was experiencing s...
