I purchased the Ancient Minerals magnesium oil spray a few days ago and began using it. Today my arm began itching and rashing. I wondered if this means I need to increase my calcium?

Dandelion (despite being an herb) is a very powerful medicine. It combines liver detox and is bad for people with SIBO. I am not saying you have SIBO, but... lay off the dandelion for a while. Some people get reaction to it. I get reaction from... (more)

hey john...this is tough. I feel for you. you know you're not alone! There's a lot of anecdotal experience on this site linking diet to skin conditions so I think a paleo type diet is the right start. However, it seems to be a mixed bag on... (more)

If the antibiotic you took was a fluoroquinolone, then you might have had a reaction to it. They cause damage to tendons, ligaments—basically all connective tissue. This might be the reason you're afflicted with tendonitis throughout your body. (more)

In my opinion, the best alcohol to drink is a high quality one that you enjoy. If alcohol becomes 10%+ of your caloric load then you are probably consuming too much. I am pretty sure most here understand that alcohol is not optimal -- from a... (more)

Everybody's body chemistry is different, so it's hard to give a straight answer about what's causing your hives. It could very well be allergies, as they can develop any time throughout your life. The best thing to do is what you're doing:... (more)

We have decided to declutter and get rid of some stuff that's been lying around in our garage/house this weekend. My OH sold his motorbike last year and he still had his leathers, so we put them up on eBay. Anyhoo, I handled them and came out in... (more)
