Osteitis pubis: Osteitis pubis is a central ache directly over the junction of the pubic bones. It can be very difficult to distinguish this from a groin pull as the groin muscles attach on the pubic bone. Stress fractures can also mimic osteitis pubis. These are seen more commonly in runners. Diagnostic injection into the region may help. Mri is also very sensitive in helping determine the source of pain.
Osteitis pubis: Inflammation of the pubic symphysis or osteitis pubis may or may not respond to dietary supplements. To my knowledge there is no evidence that dietary supplements change the symptoms of this condition. However dietary supplements such as those used for osteoarthritis, may provide relief. Some patients report released with supplements such as chondroitin and glucosamine.
No: It's almost always the result of a mechanical problem of some sort and should respond well to conservative management. Mescape is quite good on this http://emedicine.medscape.com/article/87420-overview

Where?: Cystic change in the breasts is very common. Of course if you have a dominant breast mass, it needs to be seen as a possible cancer. Mainstream medicine has little to offer. I've had colleagues tell me that evening primrose oil is the first herbal to try for painful / lumpy breasts. An evidence-based holist in your community may be able to offer more.
IPL for Rosacea: Intense pulsed light (ipl), or "photofacial", is an appropriate treatment for the redness of rosacea. A few treatments spaced approx. A month apart will be needed. A topical antibiotic like Metronidazole may be used in between sessions. Also, avoidance of triggers such as sun, heat, cold, spicy foods, and alcohol may help reduce redness. http://www.dranthonycorrado.com/procedures/non-invasive.
