Here you will find information on several illnesses, different medications, alternative care, and the like. Not all of these sites have been "tested" by myself, but I wouldn't include them if I didn't think someone could benefit from them.
If you have anything important to add to any of these pages, you would like to have me add a link to your page, or you know of a link I should add, please drop me an e-mail. Thanks!!
I support the following sites because I have noticed that I get severe headaches when I drink sodas with sweeteners. Although, my Fibromyalgia worsens incredibly when I drink carbonated drinks in general, it gets even worse if they contain Aspartame!! I also believe that Aspartame can cause or at least worsen Benign Intracranial Hypertension, which I suffer from!
I know that snopes tries to say that my claim (and others') is wrong, but from personal experience, I know that it isn't!!
Aspartame and Obesity
Aspartame Side Effects
Not in My Water Supply
The Dangers of MSG
This is another site I fully support. It's not quite as dangerous as Aspartame, but I know of enough people who have allergy like symptoms after ingesting MSG, that it should not be in food unless we, as the consumer, put it in there.
Adverse Effects of MSG
Recognizing Adverse Effects of MSG
Food Issues in Veterinary and Human Medicine
This site has a lot of information I already had before I even set "foot" on the site. I think it's a great source of information for anyone who has any type of illness. I found that a lot of what John is talking about on his site, you can also find on my site in one form or another, but it also has a lot of information that I don't have here.
Chiropractic Care and Maintenance is important for your overall health, not just your back. Why you ask? Because when your back is going out of wack, all hell breaks lose with your nervous system, due to the fac that your nerves go up and down your spine.
This site belongs to a wonderful Chiropractor (Paul Gasch) who is extremely knowledgable and has a delightful personality!
Are Vaccinations Safe?
I was worried about giving my child vaccines. I did give my youngest all the 'dead' vaccines. He did get the MMR as well, but not until he was older. The first vaccine he got with a life virus made him very ill, so naturally I was scared of the side-effects of vaccines. Too many times I have seen adverse reactions in my profession as a Daycare Provider, some minor, some severe. Nowadays we don't have to worry about Mercury in children's vaccines anymore, so that's one step in the right direction, but what other chemicals in those vaccines cause harm to our loved little ones? And how beneficial are those vaccines anyway?

A LAUGHING MATTER
According to psychologist William James, we do not laugh because we are happy. But rather, we are happy because we laugh. The happiest people alive are those who know how to laugh often and well.
In his book "A Touch of Wonder", Arthur Gordon tells of a friend of his who knew about laughter. Though deaf and almost blind, he went right on working, laughing and making the most of his life.
One Christmas season Arthur and his friend entered a crowded drugstore. On the back of the door was a mirror, visible when the door was closed. As they turned to leave, Arthur's friend saw his reflection in the mirror. He thought the door must be open and that the figure he dimly viewed before him was a customer attempting to enter the store. He stepped aside and, naturally, so did the image. He moved forward again and once more met himself. Again he retreated.
By now an uneasy hush had fallen on the spectators. No one quite knew what to do or say. But on his third advance the man realized that he was facing a mirror. "Why," he cried, "it's only me!" He made a grand bow.
"Good to see you, old boy! Merry Christmas!" The whole store exploded in delighted laughter. And why not? Here was a man who knew how to laugh at himself! He accepted his problems and limitations with a grace and humor that was contagious. We're given the power of laughter, not only to laugh AT things, but to laugh things OFF. We'll always know difficulties and we will never be without our share of troubles, but the happy person learns how to laugh most of them off. And that's the reason they're happy -- it's a laughing matter!
