I have a very good health food store with a knowledgeable owner. If she suggests a certain root or herb, can I use it safely for infertility?

Difficult: In reality, there are very few doctors that deal with ehlers danlos. Geneticists are usually the experts in diagnosing this but there is no true treatment. Non-narcotic pain rx and physical therapy to try to strengthen joints are used. Other than that, learning coping skills to live with this bothersome but non-fatal condition is key. Good luck. ...Read more

There : There are a few options to fill the gluteal region. The most well known is a gluteal implant procedure. Gluteal implants are similar to breast implants. However, these implants are infrequently embraced by legitimate plastic surgeons because they are associated with a complication rate nearing 50%. Fat transfer is gaining popularity, but still is an imperfect procedure. Fat transfer involves the harvest of fat from a donor site (usually the abdomen, thighs, and/or lower back). The fat is then separated from any blood or tumescent fluid. It is then transferred through small cannulas into the recipient region. In this case, it would be the gluteal region. The down side is that very thin people are not good candidates for this procedure. Additionally, some of the recipient fat is reabsorbed or nonviable. It is generally accepted that 30-70% of the fat will be reabsorbed at one year following the procedure. ...Read more

For instance, a teen can seek treatment for STD's or contraception in many states without parental knowledge/consent but can't consent to having their acne treated. In some states having a child emancipates you, in some states not. ...Read more
