Diseases that progressively worsen with age...Heart disease, alzheimer's, hypertension, COPD, Parkinson's, MS, Arthritis and diabetes...
1. Do you think people who get diagnosed with these conditions are "unlucky"? Or, have "bad" genes (not the kind you wear)? 2. Do you know why these diseases are commonly referred to as "Lifestyle" diseases? 3. Do you think the only issue that stands in your way between having diabetes and not having diabetes is a "sluggish" pancreas? 4. Do you think there's a specifc set of directions to follow that will allow you to "jump start" your pancreas?...And, you can purchase these instructions for only $30!
5. Diabetes is the #7 cause of death, worldwide, and gaining.If Gnuh Monix Diabetes Theorem "really works", why is Mr. Gnuh and Mr. Monix only asking $30 for their "stuff"? Alternatively, why are they charging any money, at all? If 2 million lives can be spared, each year, why would the answer be provided to only those that have $30...
...& a computer...
...and, a credit card???
PS: If you try it and it works, will you please, please, please let me know? I mean, I may be a skeptic but I'm "flexible".View Thread
Deepest apologies. I confused you for someone else. I'm very sorry and there is no need to change a thing.
PS: your wording has nothing to do with the responses you received. My nephew had a "stabbing pain" like you described. Stage 4 testicular cancer had spread to his liver. Massive distention of the liver caused the pain. He saw a doc because he thought he tore a muscle. He survived...by the skin of his teeth.
People are telling you to go see a doctor, immediately, because why "speculate" (about the cause of pain)? That's a ridiculous thing to ask of anybody,imo. Tell the truth (and be an ahole) or lie to not worry you, unnecessarily, and, then, you decide to take your sweet time to see a doctor.
I'm telling you the truth because, 1. I'm sorry, and 2. I already know what I am. Please go see a doctor, asap.View Thread
Could you please refrain from creating multiple usernames? This is a very deceptive practice and to employ this tactic to draw responses from members, here, is just not cool, imo. This aint twitter; this is a medical community. This has nothing to do with being "snarky" or "mean" & I'm not suggesting your issues aren't serious. They are very serious!
So, please, stick with one name. I'd really appreciate that. Thank you.View Thread
No, Celebrex is not an allergy med. Its a "nsaid" like ibuprofen used for pain relief. Thanks for the correction.
I believe this is the most current warning on Celebrex: Celebrex has been associated with an increased risk of serious adverse cardiovascular (CV) events in a long-term placebo controlled trial. Based on the currently available data, FDA has concluded that an increased risk of serious adverse CV events appears to be a class effect of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) (excluding aspirin). FDA has requested that the package insert for all NSAIDs, including Celebrex, be revised to include a boxed warning to highlight the potential increased risk of CV events and the well described risk of serious, and potentially life-threatening, gastrointestinal bleeding. FDA has also requested that the package insert for all NSAIDs be revised to include a contraindication for use in patients immediately post-operative from coronary artery bypass (CABG) surgery.
I'm not suggesting that people stop taking the drugs that make daily life bearable. Pain is pain and we do what we must do to live.
It's drug abuse, the chronic, long term use of drugs, that we must be wary of. It's when we take drugs like it's "normal" & "nothing new", then, develop "problems" and treat them like it's "nothing out of the ordinary". That's what is happening in America, now. This is how our doctors have failed us. They should know, better. In truth, they do know, better. In many respects, their hands are tied. The fact is, prescription drug use has quietly become a perfectly acceptable way to cope. And, as a consequence, people are falling apart...slowly. It is what it is.
Note: Here's that reference I forgot: "The 30 Worst Foods in America"
Two things to consider. One, a lifestyle is like an addiction. It's hard to change (or stop). I'm your father's age so I can appreciate his life and the changes he's made. He is to be praised not knocked. ie. the glass' half full.
Second, his age. Both body and mind changes at your father's age. We begin to observe and, hopefully, acknowledge our "limitations". This affects our perspective on just about everything. What was "critical" an "imperative" (money, sex, life expectancy) lessens over time, I think. "Happiness" and "less stress" take higher priorities. I'm not suggesting these things are better...Just different. Maybe this helps to explain his appearance to be "stubborn" and "not trying, enough". Or, maybe not. lolView Thread
Here's a list of the top 5 drugs that cause kidney damage... 1. Antibiotics 2. Pain Killers (Tylenol and Advil) 3. Allergy Meds (Celebrex) 4. Heartburn Meds (Prilosec) 5. High Blood Pressure Meds
When it comes to diabetes, everybody talks about "carbs. Not one lousy word about salt (sodium), though...
Salt is a greater killer than sugar (don't get me wrong, you're an idiot if you over consume sugar, whether diabetic or not), imo. When you mix rampant use of drugs (like the ones, above) as we do in Western medicine with over consumption of salt (see, ref, below), you basically torpedoe your kidney's ability to remove excess salt from the body. Once that takes place, your body begins to retain water. Blood pressure starts to rise. Once that happens, the heart is forced to work harder to pump the larger volumes of blood. Remember, obesity is about water retention than fat accumulation!
When you combine a diet high in salt (too much processed food consumption) with diabetes, you're "messin' w/ Sasquatch". This combo wreaks havoc with your immune system, your body's center for infection protection, damage control and tissue repair. Once the immune system is compromised, it opens the flood gates for additional disease, especially, cancer.
This is an elementary school explanation for metabolic syndrome. If left unchecked, it's a cascading downward spiral. Each new infection, allergy, rash, cavity, cold leaves the body with less ability to protect and recover from each day's wear and tear. This explains the increasing amounts of daily pain and fatigue experienced.
Just two mundane, innocuous examples: Salt and Drug Use ...You can have two people consuming identical low carb diets. One exhibits normal blood sugar. The other lives in glucose hell with a new problem cropping up every freakin' month!
Thus, this is why you will see more and more physicians in the future with the title, "Integrative Medicine" included with their other credentials. It's because, effective healing can't be dispensed without examining and dissecting a patient's lifestyle for clues: "Where is the damn inflammation coming from."View Thread
Some thoughts (and questions) 1. Is diabetes "avoidable"? Once you have diabetes, can you regain normal blood sugar control without drugs to the extent you are "cured"? 2. Why do you think the #1 risk factor for diabetes is being overweight? If you are overweight and you lose the excess weight, why do you think your (for most people) blood sugar can return to normal, again? 3. Why do you think family history and age are the next biggest risk factors for diabetes? How are these two factors related to diabetes? 4. How do people lose weight, long term? Why do you think people with lifelong weight issues can often times lose the weight but it always comes back? What does this say about our ideas about effective weight loss? 5. Why is it that people with diabetes rarely have diabetes as the only problem problem they have deal with? 6. Why is it that people think that "conditions" that increase over time...obesity, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, diabetes, osteoarthritis, osteoporosis, kidney and liver disease, macular degeneration, depression...why do think they "have it" when some stranger with a fancy diploma on the wall tells them they "have it"? Is it conceivable that they had 2 weeks before? 2 months before? 2 years before? 20 years before? Is it possible they "had it" all along??? 7. What's the difference between your body 20 years ago and now? Do you think you can "recapture" the body you had 20 years ago? If you were to try, do you think "low-carbing" will get you to the body of your dreams?View Thread
