cough medicine for little ones

I don’t know if it’s made major news in your area, but here in middle of nowhere Nebraska there has been a story running for days about the FDA and cough and cold meds for kids. http://www.winknews.com/news/consumer/10476382.html Seems there’s been a medical panel investigating the effectiveness and safety of standard cold meds in children under the age of 6. This…

more resources

http://www.bettyshouselifeafterms.com/ I ran across this website this morning and thought I’d share it with you. BTW, if anyone can tell me how to link to a nonxanga blog in a blog roll type box, I would be very appreciative. I’ve tried to start a resources section several times, but it keeps telling me I can’t do that.

Amazing

I was in the hospital last week for a nasty asthma attack. It seems I am allergic to the pollens here in Nebraska and my lungs revolted against the invasion of pollen and whatnot they’ve not had to breathe since I was a child. The FIRST time I was in the ER on Tuesday night the doctor sent me home…

one week on ldn

It’s been almost a week on the LDN and all seems to be going well. I increased my dosage to 3.0 mg and I feel great. I’ve had no dizziness or pain since I started the LDN. Although, after I increased from 1.5 to 3.0 my vision flaked out again. No worse than it usually is, but not as great…

3 days on ldn

On Sunday, I went off all my supplements in preparation for receiving and starting the ldn. I want to be supplement free so I know what, if anything the low dose naltrexone is doing for me.

making your own ldn

Several people have emailed me privately asking how to make LDN from the standard dose. So, Instead of answering everyone individually, I’ll post the info here, and leave the link, as well. Keep in mind, that I have not actually done this yet, although from what I’ve heard and read, it’s very simple. My naltrexone hasn’t arrived yet, so I’ve…

more ldn

So, I made the decision last week and ordered naltrexone to make my own LDN. Yes, it would be easier to have it prescribed and made for me at a compounding pharmacy. But the nearest Dr who prescribes LDN is several hours away from me, in a different state, and of course my medical insurance won’t pay for a visit…

How to change your diet

Recently, one of the email lists I participate in, a woman wrote the list asking how, exactly, she was supposed to change her diet. Her email mentioned a husband and children she was responsible for feeding, and she really didn’t have the energy to cook separate meals for herself and her family. She went on to say she was completely…

More on LDN

I was planning on researching low dose naltrexone and reporting my findings here, in essay/ article form, but I have com across so much information regarding the use of LDN with MS.   I think it will be easier and probably more objective if I post several links to good, solid info for everyone. The more I read, and talk to…
