I Have Throat Ulcers! Now What!?

I received an email from a Rescue Fan that had a severe soar throat and wasn’t sure if she should go to the doctor. I suggested they do, and she was diagnosed with throat ulcers. I thought I’d do a RoyOnRescue to help explain what they are and why you should see a doctor. I hope it helps.

3 Ways To Stop Ebola Infection…Today!

Hello Rescue Fans!   I’ve debated as to whether I should discuss Ebola from either a professional or lay person level or even discuss it at all.  Because of an experience I had where I walked into a contaminated bathroom that could have been an infectious problem, I decided it was definitely worth taking about.  In this episode, I talk about Ebola, it’s risks and how breaking the chain of infection through disinfection and barriers, it’s almost impossible to contract an infection.  My hope is that rather than simply re-discussing the same things you’ve been hearing about Ebola, I’ll help shed light on how to arm yourself with awareness, and the techniques required to stop an infection in it’s tracks.  I hope this helps.

How Do I Treat Neck Injuries On The Ice?

In this episode we answer a question that was sent in by a Rescue Fan that wondered what the best course of action would be if a person suffered a neck injury on the ice. It’s important to remember that if the patient has any pain, movement minimization is the goal while maintaining the patients core body temperature while waiting for EMS to arrive. If the person doesn’t feel hurt, they may elect to slowly get to their feet and recover. If they do feel pain, numbness, tingling, weakness or loss of consciousness, the best course of treatment neck injuryin my opinion is to call 911 or EMS. I hope it helps.

Flu Shot…Or Not?

Hello again rescue fans!

In this episode, I dig into a subject that is sure to cause controversy.  But…for those who know me, when have I ever steered clear from that?  So, after being made aware of a situation where a mother was forced to sign a waiver that stated something to the effect, “I understand that by not getting my children vaccinated with the flu shot, I am endangering society…blah…blah, etc.”.  This caused me to be a little curious about what all this unreasonable pressure is about in getting the flu shot.  Is it really that good?  Is it really that effective?  Is it really that safe? I mean, since when has an epidemic every been prevented by a flu shot?  The last flu pandemic was in like 1969  but it still was not like the one in 1918! And since then, we suddenly think that in 2008 we should be developing a flu vaccine to save countless lives?  Well,  this would all be fine and well if we didn’t have to worry about potentially dangerous substances found in the medium of the vaccine.  In fact, more and more reliable research is being uncovered all the time about the potential risks of vaccinations that contain toxic substances like Thimerosal which is a mercury derivative and a highly toxic heavy metal and a carcinogenic called Polysorbate 80 (also known as Tween 80): Generally contaminated with the carcinogen 1,4-dioxane. Not to mention the possible side effects of allergies, asthma and autism linked to the adjuvant. So, before you take the plunge, I think it’s a good idea to do your own research, find credible websites including the CDC itself and look at the real research to see if the risk of injecting these chemicals are really worth the possible but not guaranteed benefits of getting the flu shot.  I hope it helps.

And For My Next Heart Attack, I’ll Take An Extra Dose Of Estrogen Please!

SaladAn article found in this news provider wrote that higher levels of the hormone estrogen are associated with an increased risk of sudden cardiac death in men and women, a new study suggests.  Could there be something to this or should we just blow it off as another scare tactic?  Well, when we consider all of the different ways humans get exposed to estrogen in the form of xenoestrogens(pronounced: zeno-estrogen and are a type of xenohormone that imitates estrogen. They can be either synthetic or natural chemical compounds.), it becomes quite clear that we have a problem on our hands and the side effects are coming to roost.

How do we become exposed to these synthetic or foreign hormones?  Well sit back and take a look at this pretty comprehensive list provided by a site dedicated to endocrinology.

* Commercially-raised, non-organic meats such as beef, chicken, and pork
* Commercial dairy products including milk, butter, cheese, and ice cream – Use only organic products that do not contain bovine growth hormone
* Unfiltered water, including water you bathe in – Use reverse-osmosis filtered water such as Dazani or get your own filter
* Laundry detergent – Use white vinegar, baking soda, or tri-sodium phosphate (TSP)… According to some experts, avoid even the Seventh Generation and Eco brands
* Dryer sheets and fabric softeners – Use white vinegar is a marvelous natural fabric softener, no smell after it dries
* Avoid Primpro, DES, Premarin, Cimetidine (Tagamet), Marijuana, and Birth Control Pills.
* Hormone replacement therapy (HRT)
* Progesterone creams made with paraben preservatives
* Soy
* Ground flaxseed – If you’re looking for the Omega-3 effect, use fish oil instead
* No sunflower oil, no safflower oil, no cottonseed oil, no canola oil – Use olive oil or grapeseed oil
* Avoid Tea tree oil (melaleuca) – I know, I love tea tree oil, this one is tough
* No lavendar oil
* Avoid coffee and caffeine
* Sage and rosemary
* Shampoos, lotions, soaps, cosmetics that contain paraben or phenoxyethanol – Almost all contain them, you have to look far and wide. Be diligent, you’re getting hundreds of times more exposure through your skin than through your diet. So far, I’ve found Kiss My Face brands to be okay.
* Shampoos that purposely include estrogen (these are shampoos that cater to the African-American market)
* Avoid reheating foods in plastic or styrofoam containers
* Avoid drinking out of plastic cups and containers
* Air fresheners that contain pthalates
* Avoid naturally occurring plant estrogens:

* Coffee
* Clover, red clover tea, alfalfa sprouts
* Sunflower seeds
* Queen Anne’s lace (wild carrot)
* Pomegranate – The Greeks used this plant as a contraceptive!
* Dates
* Fennel
* Licorice, red clover, yucca, hops (beer) and motherwort
* Bloodroot, ocotillo, mandrake, oregano, damiana, pennyroyal, verbena, nutmeg, tumeric, yucca, thyme, calamus rt., red clover, goldenseal, licorice, mistletoe, cumin, fennel, chamomile, cloves

* 4-Methylbenzylidene camphor (4-MBC) (sunscreen lotions)
* butylated hydroxyanisole / BHA (food preservative)
* atrazine (weedkiller)
* bisphenol A (monomer for polycarbonate plastic and epoxy resin; antioxidant in plasticizers)
* dieldrin (insecticide)
* DDT (insecticide)
* endosulfan (insecticide)
* erythrosine / FD&C Red No. 3
* heptachlor (insecticide)
* lindane / hexachlorocyclohexane (insecticide)
* methoxychlor (insecticide)
* nonylphenol and derivatives (industrial surfactants; emulsifiers for emulsion polymerization; laboratory detergents; pesticides)
* polychlorinated biphenyls / PCBs (in electrical oils, lubricants, adhesives, paints)
* parabens (lotions)
* phenosulfothiazine (a red dye)
* phthalates (plasticizers)
o DEHP (plasticizer for PVC)

When we think about some of the complications of high estrogen levels in either gender, including increased risk of hormone sensitive cancers, increased cardiac inflammation(http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1002/iub.48/pdf), blood clot risk increase, and men have the same with the addition of impotence and infertility.

I’m glad to see there are more studies confirming that we have an estrogen problem in society.  And along with this, we are going to see many more complications of disproportionate sex hormones and their effects.  etc.http://endojourney.wordpress.com/2009/07/31/a-list-of-xenoestrogens/

It looks like organic and natural living isn’t just for enthusiasts anymore.  It’s something we should all be more aware of and do our part to begin living a healthier and happier life.
