The walking drugged
“Drugs never cure disease. They merely hush the voice of nature’s protest, and pull down the danger signals she erects along the pathway of transgression. Any poison taken into the system has to be reckoned with later on even though it palliates present symptoms. Pain may disappear, but the patient is left in a worse condition, though unconscious of it at the time.” Daniel. H. Kress, M.D.
In honor of October, the upcoming new season of the Walking Dead and all zombie lovers everywhere, I want to discuss zombies. Not the hollywood version, but the real zombies. Zombies are real and present today. I have previously written about the growing zombie epidemic in our culture. The zombie epidemic continues to grow. The glaring new fact is that those effected are younger and younger. Now, our children are targeted.
Kansas has declared October Zombie Preparedness month. Could this be the real zombie apocalypse?
September is Menopause Awareness Month.
In support of Menopause Awareness Month, and women struggling with Hot Flashes everywhere, I want to highlight 5 unlikely causes of Hot Flashes. Sure low Estrogen can cause Hot Flashes, but is that all there is to a Hot Flash?
For so many, Menopause or Peri-menopause for women means Hot Flashes. Hot flashes are the #1 identified menopausal symptom. Whether they be day or night, they are still Hot Flashes. Some women struggle with severe Hot Flashes, other women battle almost no Hot Flashes. Why the difference? Simply stated, Hot Flashes are complex. If Hot Flashes were simply the result of a decline in Estrogen during the Menopause transition, as most marketing implies, then all women would struggle with Hot Flashes in the Menopause transition. But obviously, Hot Flashes (and Menopause for that matter) is so much more than declining Estrogen levels. The following 5 unrecognized causes of Hot Flashes will reveal the complexity of the dreaded Hot Flash.
