Blog / 11/06/2012

Hypothyroidism Treatment – The Truth By Tom Brimeyer, Author of Hypothyroidism Revolution   There’s a big problem within the medical community today with their approach to treating a number of health problems and diseases. And 9 out of 10 times, this problem exists because their treatments are driven entirely by financial interests and NOT the best interests of the patients who are suffering. And their current sub par approach to hypothyroidism treatment is one that understandably fits the bill. In just a minute, I’m going to give you some important tips that your doctor isn’t telling you about, which are necessary for any successful hypothyroidism treatment. But before I do, I want to talk a little bit about why none of this is even discussed within the medical community. Hypothyroidism Treatment – Then and Now Here’s something that most people don’t realize. Long ago, before the pharmaceutical industry was pulling in over $500 billion dollars (yes, I said billion) each year from drug sales, the doctors at the time were far more successful at treating hypothyroidism than they are today. Long ago, doctors clearly understood the far reaching effects of hypothyroidism. It was extremely common for doctors to find that…

It is probably the biggest harm of the society and it struck almost every individual from the society. As nowadays everyone gets affected by stress, the asthmatics could not make an exception. Yet, what is worth in their case is the fact that it can further increase the asthma symptoms and make the asthmatic feel worse when stressed.

Blog / 11/03/2012

Nasal Polyps Treatment   Nasal polyps should not be left untreated, as they will keep growing and cause serious problems and embarrassment. Conventional nasal polyps treatment is via two routes – steroid therapy or surgical removal. In most cases, the first line of treatment is a steroid course, which may involve steroid sprays, steroid tablets or a combination of the two. Steroids can shrink down the polyps in about a week; however the shrinkage will be sustained only as long as the steroids are used. Once the steroids are stopped, the polyps will start growing again, and often to a larger size than they were before. Unfortunately, steroids can only be used for the short term, as they cause side effects such as headaches, nose bleeds, sore throats, vision loss, and increase the risk of glaucoma and cataract formation. In children, steroids can cause stunted growth. With steroid tablets, weight gain often occurs. If you have not started steroid therapy, DON’T! This will save you from getting stuck in a vicious cycle where you’ll have to rely on steroids to keep the polyps down. The other conventional cure for nasal polyps is surgical removal, and this can be done in…

We have been conditioned to believe that glasses and contact lenses are the only way to correct vision, when in fact this is simply not the case. The pioneering ophthalmologist William Bates who was born in the Unites States dedicated his life to creating a series of exercises which enable people to improve their eyesight without actually wearing glasses. In fact he made the astounding discovery during thirty years of research, that rather than helping vision problems, glasses actually make them worse.
