In one paper, the recommendation is that in postmenopausal woman without vaginal bleeding, if the endometrium measures >11 mm a biopsy should be considered as the risk of cancer is 6.7%, whereas if the endometrium measures 11 mm or less a biopsy is not needed as the risk of cancer is extremely low.

The Daikon radish is the keystone of the Macrobiotic (Traditional Japanese) diet; a way of eating known for its many spontaneous cancer remissions. This powerful pungent root and leaf vegetable can change your life. I like to think of it as a 'stick of dynamite' as it will rock your socks and energize you and your liver.

Shingles and neuralgia due to prednisone prescription for viral respiratory infection

This past week I had a otherwise healthy patient reach out to me a little too late for help with their first case of shingles and painful neuralgia.  Usually this patient is reluctant to use medicines such as prednisone but was convinced by a physician to take a course of prednisone to help with his dry cough and aches from his viral respiratory infection.  Within 3 days of starting prednisone, the patient developed constant pain along his right ribs which was then followed by the development of the typical shingles rash.  Of note is that the pain has been so severe as to prevent sleep and the burning covered the entire right side.

In this large screening population, FIT showed equivalent or better diagnostic performance in comparison to reported performance of MSDT. FIT® is a fecal immunochemical test used by doctors and in hospitals for colon cancer screening.

My approach to medicine is similar to my approach to my personal life; when a salesman or marketing campaign pushes its way into my life to convince me to use a product, then it must be expensive and have a high profit margin. My job then is to look for the other alternatives that are better, more cost effective, and too inexpensive to support the use of high cost marketing. Colorectal cancer screening is an example of this.

FDA advises restricting fluoroquinolone antibiotic use for certain uncomplicated infections FDA warns about disabling side effects that can occur together with use of fluoroquinolone antibiotic like Cipro, Factive, Levaquin, Avelox, Noroxin, or Floxin

Since I continue to see patients who are prescribed Fluoroquinolone antibiotics for conditions for which no antibiotic is necessary or for conditions that could be treated with safe antibiotics, I am posting the FDA new labeling / warnings for this class of medications from 2016. Most physicians have not changed their prescribing practices it appears from my office experience so patients must be informed on their own. Cipro, Levaquin and Avelox are the most commonly prescribed Fluoroquinolones and can cause permanent disabling side effects. These include damage and rupture of major tendons, central and peripheral neurologic damage, and serious psychological disorders. See FDA link: https://www.fda.gov/Drugs/DrugSafety/ucm500143.htm

JUST SAY NO TO PREDNISONE AND OTHER CORTICOSTEROIDS whether it be topical, spray, oral or IV! OVERUSE OF CORTICOSTEROIDS ('Steroids') LIKE PREDNISONE

In the past years, I have seen an increase in the unbelievably ignorant and harmful practice of prescribing corticosteroids by physicians for infectious diseases including the common cold, viral respiratory infections, pneumonia / bronchitis and just about anytime a doctor wants to suppress symptoms, create a false sense of feeling 'high on life' while sick, and have a happy customer in the short term at long term expense to the patient's health.  There was a trend for decades where doctors tried to avoid these deceptively dangerous immunosupressive, anti-healing, anti-regeneration medications that rob you of your health behind a symptom-free facade (false front). But since most doctors have not been taught or independently researched Integrative medicine using Naturopathic principles to treat patients, they resort to quick fixes to get the patient 'out the door' and happy for the short term.
