Another believer. They left urgent care, and were headed to the local Whole Foods Market to pick up some Arnica 200C.  The 13 year-old boy had jammed his finger playing basketball yesterday. His finger was swollen, and a little bruised around the PIP joint, (the first joint in the finger).  It was hard to flex

I recently read an article in the Wall Street Journal about using acupuncture to treat soldiers with concussions and brain trauma, and PTSD. Isn’t that cool? They are helping soldiers with headaches, insomnia, anxiety, and nightmares right on the battlefield in Afghanistan using acupuncture. It seems to speed their recovery, and also diminishes the amount of

Ok, this is a little medical, but I am blogging about it anyway.  I recently read an article in the Journal of the American Dietetic Association how older people may still be not getting enough calcium, despite supplementation.

I was going through one of my throw-away medical journals and noticed the ads for drugs. These ads are several pages, (geared towards doctors), to get them to prescribe certain drugs, for varying conditions. It reminded me of TV commercials where someone is sad and down, because the have a yeast infection, or allergies, or

I saw a woman in the urgent care with an infected leg. She was obese, diabetic, and there with her friend. “My leg is infected again” she said. both legs were swollen, and had dark purplish skin over the front part of her lower legs. The sign of chronic edema and stasis changes. But the

I remember one Christmas in grade school when I wanted a microscope, and I got one. I remember because it was the same year one of my sisters got a little electic organ(and I mean little!), which is what she was begging for. These were “big items” to us, and to our parents at the time.
