Where do I find cotton root bark? What is it used for in medicine?

Ask a pro: Cotton root bark (from the cotton plant) has several folk uses.

Is any top doctors list out there really credible? Generally, what is the skinny on the castle conolly lists?

Is any top doctors list out there really credible? Generally, what is the skinny on the castle conolly lists?

Great question!: Think these lists as one source of information. You may also want to go onto the department of medical licensing website in your state to see if your candidate has had any actions taken against them, i.e., restrictions of practice. Ask your friends for referrals. Ask nurses, particularly if you are looking for an OB reference. And trust your gut. Try another doctor if the first one isn't a match. ...Read more

My cousin has leukemia, but he is he is illegal immigrant in the united states. Is there an organization that can help reduce the hospital bills?

Consider: Community fund raising. Alternatively, seek out information from the american cancer society or the community cancer support groups located in cancer centers. Lastly, if he has insurance in his home country and is stable to travel the best idea is to return home for treatment as this is the least expensive method for receiving treatment, again assuming he has insurance in his homeland. ...Read more

Regarding cancer rates. Looking at leukaemia in califnornia vs. Nv. In la county it is 11/100,000. Clark county it is 19/100,000. Is this a big deal?

Regarding cancer rates. Looking at leukaemia in califnornia vs. Nv. In la county it is 11/100,000. Clark county it is 19/100,000. Is this a big deal?

Most likely not: Epidemiology (study of disease in a population) is tricky. Both rates quoted are very small so a doubling is very likely not a concern. Also, when comparing two areas and a very specific disease, you really should adjust for age, gender and ethnicity. Differences in a city's population can dramatically affect the incidence of certain diseases--many diseases occur only in men or women, kids, etc. ...Read more

What is natropathic treatment that treat fibromyalgia.Could I find a physician that makes such a treatment in khobar, saudi arabia since I work there.?

Not real medicine: Naturopathic medicine is one of the non-scientific "medical" practices. The naturopath "doctors", like other traditional folk medicine "doctors", try to make a person feel better with talking, massage or manipulation, herbs, etc... It's unproven, but if it seems to help, looks harmless, and is inexpensive, then it may be ok to try. Finding a "doc", checking credentials, etc..., may be difficult. ...Read more

Weird mix: This is a mix of botanicals including oat straw (!), two Amino Acids and some other stuff. Don't expect any magic.
