I am horrified to report that one vitamin tha I had been recommending to some people and using in my own family has turned up positive for lead. I am so upset about this. I am double checking another one I often recommend and think that it continues to be safe--All One, it comes in adult strength and children's strength. I will post when I find out. In any case, here is the article, and if any of you that are on it and I forgot to notify you, please stop immediately and email me.

Read this, it might save your life! The increasing number of prescriptions for high cholesterol medication over the last decade has been disturbing (to me anyway). I get really alarmed when all of the sudden so many people are being prescribed the same drug or knds of drugs for a problem that just seems, for lack of a better word--faddish. I have seen people with before acceptable cholesterol numbers being prescribed cholesterol medication fairly aggressively, and, I am not an MD, but it just has not seemed right. My own father died because of this kind of "preventive care".

Some of you have posted recently that probiotics are making you crazy. Actually, here is an article that promotes the use of probiotics for people that have been diagnosed with emotional/mind disorders. In my experience, people do often go through all kinds of emotional swings at the beginning of probiotic therapy. This is super typical. But, on the flip side, after having gone through treatment, they become emotionally well balanced. It is a super beautiful thing to watch someone go through. This aticle is filled with a lot of really great information.

MAny of you may know through being treated with me that people having chronic disease often have elevated, sometimes severely cholesterol levels. I have observed that in most cases the cholesterol normalizes without any extra intervention at all and even more interesting, during a diet that is rich in animal proteins. However, in some cases more is needed, and one common remedy used for this purpose is fish oil.
