Sleeping Position And Health | Prevention

Sleeping position doesn’t just impact how comfortable your rest is, it can also affect your health. And this goes beyond just heartburn and snoring—it could help you avoid neurological diseases, like Alzheimer’s disease or Parkinson’s disease, according to research published in the Journal of Neuroscience. Sleeping on your side, as opposed to sleeping on your back or stomach, may be a better position for your brain to clear out its waste while you sleep.

Why is this medication prescribed?

Prescription ibuprofen is used to relieve pain, tenderness, swelling, and stiffness caused by osteoarthritis (arthritis caused by a breakdown of the lining of the joints) and rheumatoid arthritis (arthritis caused by swelling of the lining of the joints). It is also used to relieve mild to moderate pain, including menstrual pain (pain that happens before or during a menstrual period). Nonprescription ibuprofen is used to reduce fever and to relieve minor aches and pain from headaches, muscle aches, arthritis, menstrual periods, the common cold, toothaches, and backaches.

Horny Goat Weed extract supplement for libido, side effect

What is the right dosage and what are safety issues that you need to know, by Ray Sahelian, M.D. author of Natural Sex Boosters, a guide to safely and effectively using natural aphrodisiacs from around the world

December 18 2014

Horny goat weed is a pungent ornamental herb found in Asia and the Mediterranean. The Chinese call it Yin Yang Huo, which loosely means “licentious goat plant.” Legend has it that the name came from a herder who noticed his goats becoming more sexually active after eating the plant. Supplement companies have adopted the provocative name by which it is known in the U.S. Horny goat weed plant has the botanical name epimedium because it is similar to a plant found in the ancient Asian kingdom of Media, now a part of Iran. Epimedium is a genus of many related plant species and some are used for medicinal purposes, including E. sagittatum, E. brevicornum, and E. koreanum. Although it has a history of traditional use for disorders of the kidneys, joints, and liver, its principle use in the western world is as an aphrodisiac and to combat fatigue. It is appropriate for use by a woman and a man. Most sex herbs work in men and women.

FDA Limits Acetaminophen Doses Citing Potential Liver Damage

Before reaching for a bottle of Tylenol, popping a DayQuil pill or downing a dose of Tylenol Cold and Flu this flu season, Americans should know these popular drugs and their generic counterparts may harm their liver.

Acetaminophen effectively lowers fever and relieves minor aches and pains without stomach discomfort and heart issues associated with ibuprofen and other non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs). For years, Tylenol – and the drug’s manufacturer Johnson & Johnson – has claimed it is the pain reliever most recommended by doctors.

But, earlier this month, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) urged healthcare providers to stop prescribing combination drugs products that contain more than 325 mg of acetaminophen, the active ingredient in Tylenol and similar products, over concerns of liver damage.
