Many women (and men) suffering from yeast infections resort to the remedies found in a drug store: creams, suppositories, and other "medical" remedies. The problem with these is that they tend to help for only a short period of time and then the yeast comes back with a vengeance. In my experience, there are other, more effective ways to combat this evil menace.

A number of medications are available for skin yeast infection in the form of tablets, capsules, creams, and suppositories etc. A popular family of anti-yeast drugs called Azole drugs (ending in the suffix azole) is effective against yeast causing infection of skin. These drugs act by blocking the manufacture of a compound ergosterol, lacking which the yeast cell dies soon. Since ergosterol is not a component of human cells, the drug is not harmful to human cells.

[Best Syndication] Young women that exercise and don’t eat healthy that are under the age of 30 can be at an increased risk for bone loss, which can eventually lead to osteoporosis. Researchers are recommending women that exercise a lot should eat healthy to avoid bone loss. A study was reported on this bone loss risk at the Endocrine Society annual meeting in Toronto.

“Thousands of women severely restrict their diet and practice rigorous exercise programs for fitness and weight control,” said Anne Loucks, professor of biological sciences at Ohio University and lead author on the new study. “Because some don’t see obvious signs of undernutrition, such as a disrupted menstrual cycle, they may think they’re eating enough. If their diet does not supply enough energy to fuel their exercise level, though, they may be harming themselves. They need to replenish those calories.”

[Best Syndication] Yesterday, Dr. Oz answered a number of questions that viewers asked him. We have discussed some of the questions answered in previous articles. In this article we will cover the remaining questions that were asked.

On ABC’s ‘Grey’s Anatomy’ TV show, the showed a creature that was in the penis of a man. The actress goes, that is a penis fish! Oprah wanted to know is this real or made up for TV? Dr. Oz said that it is a real fish that is attracted to urine. It will swim up the penis or the vagina and will be stuck there until it is removed surgically. The good news is that these creatures are found in the Amazon waters, so it is very unlikely to ever happen to a person in the US. If you are planning a vacation there, you might think about swimming in a pool instead.

Dr. Oz visited on Oprah TV show yesterday and discussed a number of topics. One topic that he discussed and also demonstrated on Oprah was acupressure.

Acupressure is similar to acupuncture. Instead of using needles to trigger the nerves and energy flow in the body, you can use your fingers to apply pressure to different areas in your body to achieve similar results.

Acupressure is an ancient Fareast medicine. The idea is that there are energy lines called meridians in the body that can become disrupted or blocked. By triggering certain parts in the energy system you could restore energy flow in the body. While Western medicine does not practice energy medicine, Dr. Oz says that our current medical system haven’t been able to measure energy in the body, and that may be why it isn’t acknowledged.

Women With Breast Cancer Can Benefit From Prostate Drug – UK Researchers Found that LHRH Is As Effective As Chemotherapy

(Best Syndication) Women with hormone sensitive breast cancer may benefit from a drug used to treat prostate cancer, according to researchers in the UK. The drug, known as Luteinizing hormone-releasing hormone (LHRH), has been shown to be as effective as chemotherapy, but without the negative side effects.

Chemotherapy can increase the risk of becoming permanently infertile. After the treatments stops the ovarian function usually returns to normal. Because of that, patients may save themselves from the long-term menopausal side effects. The hormone works by stopping the pituitary gland from producing luteinising hormone, and removes the stimulus for the ovaries to make oestrogen.

Professor Jack Cuzick, Cancer Research UK scientist and lead author of the study, said: "We analysed 16 trials involving LHRH agonists and these results point to an important additional approach to treating breast cancer.
