Ok, now I’m angry. Pass me my laser quickly! Statins side effects just seem to be constantly be ignored.

How is it that the holistic health industry is constantly gagged and stopped from saying that it can help people get better because there aren’t enough clinical studies to support the amazing work that is being done?…………..

 

Then the papers are allowed to report headlines like these:

  • Statins could treat breast cancer in future
  • Statins: A miracle drug that could prevent and reverse disease
  • Statins linked to lower risk of prostate cancer death
  • Statins may improve survival rate for aneurysm

Are there any clinical trials to back these statements up you might ask?

Well we will come to that in a mo.

What I want to know is why the media only wants to promote the allegedly positive side effects of taking statins. Are they getting paid to advertise by pharmaceutical companies? I wonder.

Tomato Allergy

Posted by: | Comments (115)

Allergy To TomatoesWho would have thought that you could be allergic to tomatoes? After all they are supposed to be healthy aren’t they?It is rare to have a severe reaction to tomatoes but it is not unheard of for a tomato allergy to cause anaphylactic shock and even death!

If you are reading this you or someone you love has probably had a reaction to tomatoes. During your research you have read that tomato allergies are rare. If that were true then why is this post viewed by a couple of hundred people every day?  I have so many people email me all the time who are reacting to tomatoes.

Most people have what would normally be classed as an intolerance to tomatoes rather than tomato allergy in the medical sense. So you may not even notice any symptoms, or may not relate the symptoms to the tomato. Remember it can take up to 72 hours after we have ingested something for symptoms to present themselves.

Alcohol Addiction Caused By Alcohol Intolerance?It seems that people are drinking a lot more than they ever have, especially women. I want to take a look at what the possible reasons  for that are and investigate whether alcohol intolerance or alcohol allergy could be causing alcohol addiction and what you can do about it. I think the two main reasons are:

1)  Using alcohol to numb emotions

It could be that you are using alcohol as an anaesthetic to numb some kind of emotional pain or pains in your life. If you deal with the emotions or trauma you might find that you no longer need to use alcohol as a tranquiliser. Or maybe you use it as a reward after a hard day at work or with the children. There are various techniques to help deal with the emotional side of alcohol addiction but I am not going to deal with them here as I am looking specifically at allergies in this post.

Allergies In Children - Signs To Look Out For

Some signs of allergies in children can be quite obvious but sometimes you need to really look for them. I have written this post to help make it easier for you to identify these signs of allergies in your child.

 

Dr Doris Rapp says that we should look for:

  • Red earlobes or cheeks
  • Dark circles under the eyes
  • Wrinkles under the eyes
  • Puffy bags under the eyes
  • Glassy, glazed eyes
  • Nose rubbing or nose crease across the centre of the nose from always pushing it upwards

 

The Allergy Kit

Then look for a child who:

  • Has allergic relatives
  • Acts like “Dr Jeckill and Mr Hyde”
  • Earns “A’s” ond day and “F’s” the next
  • Cannot write, draw or do maths at times
  • Has poor school grades in relation to I.Q
  • Craves certain foods or odours
