Keep Antibiotic Use Down In Children With Ear Inflections


In guidelines published by the American Academy of Pediatrics and the American Academy of Family Physicians it was reported that each course of antibiotics given to a child can make future treatments for ear infections more difficult to treat. In addition, the benefits of taking antibiotics for ear inflections called acute otitis media (AOM) is small and must be balanced against the potential harm of the therapy. About 15% of children who take antibiotics suffer from diarrhea or vomiting and up to 5% have allergic reactions, which can be serious or life threatening. To get rid of the pain you can get a device called Eardoc that provides almost immediate relief. The Eardoc generates vibrations which are transmitted into the ear and reduces pressure which allows trapped fluids to drain. Look for it on Amazon.

An Alternative To An Assisted Living Facility - A Cruise Ship!

Lee Lindquist, M.D. and Robert Golub, M.D. published a comparison of people who checked into an assisted living facility vs. those who took a room on a cruise ship. Turns out that the cost is about the same -$3000 per month - but the cruise ship wins hands down. On a cruise ship all the meals are provided; you get housekeeping; medical care is available round the clock; and you'll be escorted to your meals. On top of all that you get new ports of call to visit and entertainment every evening. Finally, wouldn't it be much nicer to visit your loved one on a cruise than in a home? So - if a loved one needs assisted living, take a closer look at cruising!

A Hot Tub Gives Your Body A Cellular Tune-up


Dr. Julian Whitaker reported that a hot tub or Jacuzzi can give your cells a
tune-up. Immersing yourself in hot water generates what are called heat shock proteins that protect against stress related damage. These proteins ensure that other proteins in the cell are properly folded and they tag old or misshapen proteins for destruction. So...get into a Jacuzzi, feel the heat and know you are tuning your cells to a healthier level.

Magnesium Prevents Type 2 Diabetes

We are in the midst of an epidemic of people getting Type 2 Diabetes. Two recent studies published in Diabetes Care found some amazing results from taking magnesium. One study of 125,000 people over an 18-year period found that those taking the highest levels of magnesium were the least likely to develop Type 2 Diabetes. The other study found that even overweight women with the highest levels of magnesium were 22% less likely to develop Diabetes. So...make sure you include 500-1,000 mg a day of Magnesium in your diet or your supplement.
