meds out there were created to treat conditions that commonly -- or predominantly -- affect men (Viagra knockoffs, anyone?). That's partly because the fairer sex has historically been excluded from all kinds of drug trials, as researchers believed our fluctuating hormones and ability to get knocked up made us complicated study subjects. But over the past few years, the FDA has taken steps to include women in more clinical trials -- and scientists have been logging some serious lab time to come up with medicines that will make a difference for you.

The cure is radical, but the worms might just save his life.Looking at 45-year-old Tom "Bear" C. today, it's hard to believe the muscular 200-pound blacksmith from Massachusetts once suffered the effects of hundreds of allergies. From pollen to animal dander, seafood to insect bites, allergens kept his immune system on high alert. Substances that his body should have perceived as harmless or even beneficial were registered as life threatening. His system counterattacked violently, hurting Bear's own tissues as much as, if not more than, the imagined interlopers it hoped to destroy."As a kid I couldn't even eat green beans," he says. "I was deathly allergic to peanut butter. I couldn't touch my dog or my face would swell up. And if an insect bit me, the spot would stay swollen for 2 or 3 months."While certainly extreme, Bear's case is emblematic of how we've become America the Allergic. Surveys by the National Institutes of Health reveal that the percentage of people allergic to at … [Read more...] about The New (Ancient) Cure for Immune Disorders
(Natural News) Older individuals living with Alzheimer’s disease are often prescribed antipsychotic drugs. This controversial practice has been frowned upon for many years. New research has now found that the use of these drugs in Alzheimer’s patients substantially increases their risk of mortality — which begs the question: is this risky practice being conducted with malicious intentions?The majority of people who suffer from Alzheimer’s disease are 65 years of age or older. It affects over five million people in the United States alone, but it is estimated by the year 2050, that number will reach up to 16 million. And in 2016, it was estimated that Alzheimer’s disease and other types of dementia would cost the US roughly $216 billion. It is costly and time-consuming — by 2050, it is expected the costs of caring for people with some form of dementia will reach a devastating $1 trillion.In other words: to promoters of the depopulation agenda, old … [Read more...] about Prescription euthanasia: Elderly being killed off by antipsychotic drugs… is it on purpose?

Prescription drug rehab is big business — and what’s even better from the rehab centers’ viewpoint — there’s a lot of repeat business. But, when the public wakes up and says, “Whoa, seven times through rehab is enough!”, it’s time for the 900 lb. gorilla to step in and make sure those customers don’t go and make recovery from prescription drug addiction a do-it-yourself project with the herb, kratom. This seems to be exactly what is going on in the battle — on several fronts — to preserve Big Pharma’s profit margins. When mothers and dads decide they don’t want the risk of losing their child to vaccine injury — and they try to get a waiver — vaccine “experts” are quick to get articles published in major and smaller media saying everyone should be forced to get their shots, as if these parents are harboring a biological weapon in their home (an un-vaccinated child).
