Burdock Root (Arctium lappa or Arcticum minus):

One of the greatest things you can do for pain, joint or otherwise, is increase your intake of essential fatty acids. Burdock contains fatty oils which (along with its sterols and tannins) contribute to burdock’s reputation as an anti-inflammatory. You can eat burdock root in stir-fries (very popular in Asian cuisine, by the way), make a decoction (To do so: chop 2 tablespoons of fresh burdock root—if you do not have the fresh root available you may use 2 teaspoons of dried root as an alternative. Add the root to the boiling water and allow to simmer for 10 minutes then turn off the heat. Strain and drink while still warm—3-4 cups a day is ideal), or take the herb in capsule form (follow dosage directions, but remember, these are for a 150lb adult—calculate the appropriate dose using your own weight).

A third article suggested potential ethical, clinical and financial conflicts of interest at work in the execution of the JUPITER study”.

Over 300 Drugs Can Damage the Lungs - 9/24/00 

 There are hundreds of drugs routinely prescribed against a variety of disorders that apparently can

cause all kinds of lung diseases and damage, according to a recent report.



If you want to feel what its like to have emphysema, try taking a deep breath and hold it. Without letting out any air, take another deep breath. Hold that one too. One more time, take one more breath. Okay let it all out.

That second or third breath is what it feels like to breathe when you have advanced emphysema. Emphysema is a disease where you cannot exhale air. Everyone thinks that it is a disease where you cannot inhale but in fact it is the opposite. When you smoke you destroy the lungs elasticity by destroying the tissue that pulls your lung back together after using muscles that allow us to inhale air. So when it comes time to take your next breath it is that much more difficult, for your lungs could not get back to their original shape.  Imagine to live struggling each breath like those last two breaths. Unfortunately, millions of people don't have to imagine it, they live it daily. It is a truly miserable way to live and a slow painful way to die.  But its still not too late! The moment you quit smoking, your lungs begin repairing all the damages immediately. Your risks of lung cancers and other cancers drop significantly, even if the cells are already in a pre-cancerous state. Your risk of developing smoking related diseases such as emphysema and chronic bronchitis also declines at once.

Save your lungs. Make your choice to quit smoking today.  (I've never regretted making that choice 25 yrs.ago. L.Scott)

23 million Americans suffer from some form of unusual migraines that could be termed complex

 Complex migraines: Searing pain, disrupted speech

  • National Headache Foundation says 23 million Americans suffer from unusual migraines
  • Expert says complex migraines are when neurologic event outlasts the headache
  • Complicated migraines can go hand in hand with a number of other serious conditions
  • (CNN) -- Barbara A. Mosgrave of Annandale, Virginia, doesn't remember the first time it happened. It's still a blur. But she thinks the episodes began about 50 years ago. At least that's when she remembers someone telling her she was talking gibberish.

    "My friends would look at me and say 'What are you talking about?'

    At 71, Mosgrave knows to expect the unexpected. Since she was a teen she has suffered from serious migraines. "The kind that cause you to go into a dark room, and shut the door; the pain is that bad," she says. But she knew how to control them, and why they were happening. Yet, when it came to her speech, that was different.

    "I had no idea that I was babbling," she admits.
