Are All Vitamins the Same?
Now, vitamins are not all the same and if you're not aware of that fact, you're going to learn about it now. Some vitamins that you go to buy in the health food store or the drug store are made from petroleum – they're made from coal tar. In fact, most vitamins are made from that and these synthetic types of vitamins are not well assimilated in the body. Do you think if you plop in a plastic coated One-A-Day or Myadec or Centrum in your body that your body's going to know what to do with that plastic coated stuff?
I do a lot of intestinal fasts with people to give them a good cleansing. The patients call in and they reported "I have this black tar like stuff coming out of my body!" I explain to them this substance comes from the drugs and all the coal tar vitamins that they have been taken over the years. They are amazed when they see it and realize how much it really resembles actual tar.
Salmonella in a Nutshell
Upwards of six hundred cases of salmonella that could be linked to peanut contamination have been reported in 44 states in the US. Several deaths have resulted.
The outbreak is probably more widespread as only a small percentage of cases are laboratory-confirmed and tracked. The recent outbreak has been traced to contaminated peanut butter and peanut butter products from Peanut Corporation of American located in Blakely, GA.
Voluntary recalls for over 2,000 products have been issued and the list is expanding. Despite FDA assurances that they are not affected, sales of national brands have slumped.
What You Can Do
Salmonella bacteria pass from human and animal feces to humans and animals. It is usually transmitted through meat, eggs, vegetables and other contaminated foods. It can be transmitted by infected people who touch food without washing their hands. Symptoms include abdominal cramps, diarrhea and fever. Typically, symptoms occur 12-72 hours following infection. The elderly, infants and those with compromised immune systems are most likely to be affected severely.
The majority of salmonella sufferers recover without treatment. Those with severe cases should drink fluids. Extreme cases may require intravenous hydration and/or antibiotics. A small percentage of cases can lead to Reiter's syndrome, typified by joint pain, eye irritation and pain when urinating. This can lead to chronic arthritis.

(NaturalNews) There are many nutrients available to individuals with hypertension who wish to take a more natural approach for addressing their condition. Clearly, improving diet and increasing physical activity are key to achieving normal blood pressure, along with a host of other positive benefits. Still, there are specific supplements that can assist in lowering blood pressure.
One very important mineral for regulating blood pressure is magnesium. Unfortunately, magnesium also represents one of the most common nutritional deficiencies in those who follow the Standard American Diet. There appears to be an inverse relationship between blood pressure and blood levels of magnesium. Furthermore, the Honolulu Heart Study showed that magnesium intake had the strongest association with blood pressure out of 60 other variables that were evaluated.

Diabetic--Protect Your Feet
Nerve damage, circulation problems and infections can cause serious foot problems for diabetics. Controlling your sugar levels and not smoking can go a long way in preventing feet problems. Here are some suggestions below that can also help.
See your physician four times a year to check our feet.
Have your sense of feeling and your pulses checked at least once a year. If you have nerve damage, deformed or misshaped feet, or a circulation problem, your feet need special care. Ask your health care professional to show you how to care for your feet.
Check your feet daily.
Look at your feet daily to see if you have scratches, cracks, cuts or blisters. Always check between your toes and on the bottoms of your feet. Call you health care professional at once if you have a sore on your foot.
Wash your feet and trim your toenails carefully.
Be sure to dry between your toes. Moisture between the toes will let germs grow that could cause an infection. Don’t soak your feet as it can dry out your skin and that can lead to infections. Rub lotion or cream on the tops and bottoms of your feet but not between your toes.
Trim your toenails after you’ve washed and fried your feet (the nails will be softer and safer to cut). Trim the nails to follow the natural curve of your toes. Don’t cut into the corners. If you can’t see well, or if your nails are thick or yellowed, get them trimmed by your foot doctor.
Protect your feet:
Always wear shoes and socks, indoors and outdoors. Don’t wear shoes with plastic uppers and sandals with thongs between the toes.
Physical activity can help increase the circulation in your feet. Ask your health care team about things you can do to exercise your feet and legs.
