Nail biting: Signals anxiety or nervousness. Finding the source off that and helping him develop other ways to get rid of his anxiety will help. Hypnosis can help as can acupuncture, chinese medicine. Homeopathy, and counseling. Fussing at him or punishing or that nasty tasting nail polish really do not help. ...Read more

What is the most frightening newly discovered disease (say in 2012)?

Bird flu: I think the potential for a worldwide pandemic of a more virulent influenza (h1n1) remains the most frightening "new" disease this year (and next).

If a variant gives the more severe form of the virus the ability to transmit easily, the result could be a pandemic. ...Read more

Can you newly be allergic later in life to some food which you've eaten frequently as a child?

Can you newly be allergic later in life to some food which you've eaten frequently as a child?

Generally not: True food allergies typically don't develop as an adult. As the digestive tract ages, however, it sometimes gets finicky, and some foods that have been well tolerated begin to cause some discomfort. The difference is that an intolerance can never become life threatening, but the end result is the same - whether it's an intolerance or a true food allergy, all you can do is avoid it. ...Read more

Does anyone know where I can buy blue lily of the nile extract locally and educate me on hw to use it?

Garden flower: This beautiful plant is mentioned in the harry potter series; some people are allergic to its leaves and in folk medicine it's been used to speed labor.

There are an awful: Lot of abbreviated words here but the sense I am getting is that you took treatment for STIs, chlamydia and gonorrhea, but because you vomited the pills, you had to take them again. The second time they apparently stayed down! Good! It sounds like you were given one of the approved single dose regimens for both. I think you're good if no pills came up the second time. But go in for recheck if? 's ...Read more

Do you have any recommendations for someone newly diagnosed with dysautonomia?

Do you have any recommendations for someone newly diagnosed with dysautonomia?

Integrative approach: Dysautonomia is a complex condition. Conventional medicine does not have a cure. I advise consulting an integrative practitioner to assess potential underlying causes including chronic infections, environmental toxins, nutrient deficiencies, food allergies, scar tissue etc. You may respond to acupuncture, homeopathy, neural therapy, relaxation techniques etc.
