Back Pain, Joint Pain, Knee Pain, Arthritis and a Host of Other Pain Ailments You Never Have to Suffer Again

Reno, NV (PRWEB) January 1, 2005

It is a well known fact that:

80% of Americans will battle with back pain at some point in their live

7 million people are treated for back pain every year

2 million new of back pain are opened every year

$ 100 billion is being spent annually in medical bills, disability and lost productivity at work.

Why are we in Pain?

Before we can answer this question, we need to understand how the body interprets and handles pain. The pain impulse begins a the point of an injury for example a cut or burn, a pinched nerve, bruised muscle etc.

Once the impulse starts, it triggers a number of bio-chemicals to be released at the site of the injury. Some of these bio-chemicals are histamine, bradykinin, prostaglandin, and Substance P. Each of these has one or more effects on the body. And many of these bio-chemicals are inflammatory — that is they cause the injury site to swell up.

Inflammation is actually a defense mechanism for the body. Inflammation serves to bathe the injury in healing fluids and acts as a cushion to protect against further injury. However. if the inflammation is prolonged or out of control, it can cause destruction. This is what occurs in arthritis where the inflammation actually destroys the joints. Also, inflammation can serve to compound problems by actually causing pain itself. This explains how an injury causes the body to release a number of biochemicals that can cause inflammation. Another action of these biochemicals, though, is to stimulate the nerve fibers of pain, the C fibers. (The body actually has three types of nerve fibers: A fibers. B fibers and C fibers. The main fibers which transmit the pain impulse are the C fibers.) Histamine, bradykinin, prostaglandins and the other bio-chemicals are actually the stimuli that cause the pain impulse to begin.

Types of Pain Relief – At the site of an injury, whether the problem is pain or inflammation, the pain impulse can be interrupted by:

Decreasing the levels of the “pain” bio-chemicals

Or by blocking the nerves of pain – the C fibers.

With that in mind, it would make sense to use a painkiller that can do both of these. Aspirin and NSAIDS (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs), such as ibuprofen and Motrin decrease the prostaglandins. This can result in decreased pain and inflammation, especially if the prostaglandins are the main causes. However, aspirin and NSAIDS do not directly affect the other pain chemicals and do not affect the pain nerve, the C fiber.

Narcotics, such as Darvon or codeine, have no known effect on either the “pain” bio-chemicals or the pain nerves. Acetaminophen (Tylenol) also has no significant effect on these at usual doses. And in fact, the way acetaminophen works is not actually known. But we also know we can interrupt the pain impulse away from the injury site, at the spinal cord. If our pain killer could also decrease the release of (or deplete the C fiber of) Substance P, the pain impulse would be blocked at the spinal cord level. Aspirin and NSAIDS have no known effect at this site. Narcotics and tricyclic antidepressants, such as amitriptylene or Elavil, on the other hand, actually can block the release of Substance P and stop transmission at the spinal cord level, but once again have no value in decreasing the levels of the bio-chemicals of pain. This new totally natural remedy provides the relief you need without using drugs and other traditional methods of pain relief does it all:

Decreases the levels of the “pain” bio-chemicals.

Blocks the release of Substance P, thus slowing down the transmission of the pain impulse along the nerves of pain, the C fibers.

And slows down transmission of pain along the spinal cord. offers an affordable, all natural and highly effective product that sells all over the world.

Torcetrapib and Rimonabant-Acomplia: Promising Next-Generation “Good” Cholesterol Raising Drugs


New York (PRWEB) November 17, 2006

Based on compelling evidence that raising high-density lipoprotein cholesterol levels (HDL-C, also known as “good” cholesterol) helps halt atherosclerosis, pharmaceutical companies are racing to produce the next generation of medications to replace the ineffectual ones currently on the market. Niacin, the current drug of choice, increases HDL-C by only 15% to 35%, and then only at daily doses three grams or higher, increasing the chance for unpleasant side effects.

Today at the 33rd annual VEITHsymposiumв„ў, Dr. Russell H. Sampson, former Associate Professor of Surgery at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine (Bronx, NY) and current President of Mote Vascular Foundation, Inc. (Sarasota, FL), provided a comprehensive overview of the current state of good cholesterol-raising drugs, including two of the more promising ones, Torcetrapib and Rimonabant-Acomplia.

Torcetrapib (discovered and developed by Pfizer), is a cholesteryl ester transfer protein (CETP) inhibitor. In theory, by blocking CETP it should be possible to improve the ratio of HDL-C to low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C, also known as “bad” cholesterol), thus slowing the development and progression of atherosclerosis. Early Phase 2 data published in April 2004 showed that inhibiting CETP with torcetrapib at 120 mg per day produced significant increases in HDL-C when given alone (46%), as well as in combination with Lipitor (61%). When the dosage of torcetrapib was increased to 240 mg per day, HDL-C increased by over 100%. However, patients taking 60 mg of torcetrapib with Lipitor also experienced an increase in systolic blood pressure, a drawback which may outweigh the benefit of raised HDL-C. It is currently estimated

that Torcetrapib will be in the U.S. market in 2008.

Rimonabant-Acomplia (discovered and developed by Sanofi-Aventis) is a CB1 endocannabinoid receptor antagonist. CB1 blockers act on the endocannabinoid system, a system controlling energy and nicotine dependence, reducing the overstimulation thought to lead to obesity and nicotine addiction. In a recent study, 1,036 overweight or obese patients with blood lipid disorders were randomly placed in one of three groups (placebo vs. 5 mg or 20 mg per day of Rimonabant-Acomplia). After one year of treatment, patients receiving 20 mg per day of Rimonabant-Acomplia lost an average of 20 pounds, compared to only 5 pounds for patients on placebo. Further comparisons between the placebo and 20 mg per day Rimonabant-Acomplia group showed that the latter patients enjoyed significant improvements in waist circumference and HDL-C and triglyceride levels, all important factors in maintaining heart health. The drug was said to be well tolerated, with only mild and transient side effects like dizziness and gastrointestinal distress. The drug is currently only approved for sale in Europe, with a date for U.S. availability still uncertain.

Dr. Samson said, “We are about to see a whole new generation of medications to help control atherosclerosis the leading cause of death and disability in the USA and most industrial nations. Current medications may halt or slow down progression, however, it is predicted that these medications may revolutionize treatment by actually reversing this disease that is responsible for heart attack, stroke, and amputations. I am extremely excited by the prospect.”

Serelax Delivering Unparalleled Results for Depression Sufferers


Serelax Delivering Unparalleled Results for Depression Sufferers

Manalapan, NJ (PRWEB) November 30, 2009

In a marketplace where prescription antidepressants rise and fall for one reason or another – typically due to known side effects, drug interactions, or failing their clinical trials prior to their FDA approval – one all-natural antidepressant is standing firmly in first place: Serelax. The reasons why this natural antidepressant is currently enjoying such wide usage is because it incorporates all-natural and side effect-free ingredients that truly balance the chemicals in the brain by replenishing and restoring vital neurotransmitters necessary to maintaining a happy, healthy, anxiety-free and stress-free lifestyle.

Unlike the myriads of other antidepressants that are currently available, both as over-the-counter products, or as prescribed medications – Serelax begs to differ in several key areas.

One, it has never been known to cause any side effects whatsoever.

Two, it does not require a costly visit to a medical doctor, a pricey RX plan, or frequent checkups and monitoring.

Finally, this all-natural antidepressant only utilizes the most potent, active ingredient complexes that are derived from all-natural, organic sources that have been PROVEN to treat the associated symptoms of depression, anxiety and insomnia effectively.

It seems that nearly every day in the news, more headlines are warning consumers of the dangers of using prescription antidepressants; generally newly-learned side effects, or dangerous drug interactions that have been discovered.

And according to 2009 national statistics, there has been a 10% increase in the usage of antidepressants since early 2000. This trend of more people seeking treatment of their mental ailments has spurred a bandwagon barrage of numerous natural ‘cures’ popping up–all that make a wide variety of claims.

But one thing remains clear about Serelax: it is one of the first and only, PROVEN all-natural antidepressants. And currently, it is the most widely depended upon supplement of its kind.

Serelax spokesperson, Gerald Silvers, infers that the widespread popularity of their all-natural antidepressant is paramount to several biding factors that currently exist within our society.

“People are changing, times have been tough for quite some time, and currently, the US is embattled in two wars overseas,” Silvers explains. “Combine these stresses with returning soldiers, folks losing their homes and valued credit ratings, and, of course, the common stresses that are experienced with running the affairs of your daily life, and you have the reasons why more people are coming to rely upon the PROVEN power of Serelax to offer them the natural and safe, effective relief that they seek.”

Serelax is an all-natural natural cure for depression and anxiety. It is taken by capsule form orally, twice daily.

Most people will notice a significant reduction in stress, anxiety and depression within the first few months of using Serelax.

Serelax is able to effectively treat the symptoms of anxiety and depression by using premium, propriety ingredients complexes like Suntheanine, clinically documented as being beneficial in relieving physical, mental and social symptoms of depression, anxiety, insomnia, and irritability.

This all-natural cure for anxiety and depression also utilizes other ingredients such as 5-HTP, Valerian, and Kava Kava, all which have been proven to assist with improving the symptoms of anxiety, insomnia, irritability and depression.

Serelax is available over-the-counter and does not require a prescription from a medical doctor.

Currently there are no known or documented, adverse side effects associated with using this natural supplement to treat anxiety, insomnia or depression.

Most people will realize noticeable reductions in anxiety, stress and mental depression within the first two months of usage, when taken as directed.

Hormone Therapy Victims Win Important Appeal


Hormone Therapy Victims Win Important Appeal

Austin, TX (Vocus) November 11, 2009

On November 2, 2009, the United States Court of Appeals for the Eighth Circuit issued its long-awaited decision in Scroggin v. Wyeth (Case No. 08-2555). The decision gives the green light for federal trials on Wyeth’s and Pfizer’s hormone therapy drugs. In affirming judgment on a jury verdict of compensatory damages, the federal appellate court rejected the defendants’ claims that plaintiffs like Donna Scroggin cannot prove that hormone therapy caused their breast cancer. It also found that the statute of limitations began to run from the announcement of the startling results of the Women’s Health Initiative study (“WHI”) in July, 2002.

Erik Walker of Hissey Kientz, LLP in Austin, Texas handled the appeal for Ms. Scroggin, writing her briefs and arguing to the court. Walker lauded the court’s decision. “The opinion reveals the court became well-versed in the complex issues presented in this litigation. The decision finally forecloses Wyeth’s cynical claim that even though its drugs caused countless women to develop breast cancer, Wyeth can never be held accountable because no woman can prove that her particular cancer was caused by the drugs.”

Donna Scroggin took Wyeth’s Premarin (estrogen) and Pfizer-subsidiary, Upjohn’s Provera (progestin). She then took Wyeth’s Prempro, which combined estrogen and progestin (E+P) into a single pill. After 11 years using the products, Ms. Scroggin developed hormone-dependent cancer in both of her breasts, compelling a double mastectomy and debilitating treatments. A jury awarded Ms. Scroggin $ 2.75 million in compensatory damages. The jury also found that Wyeth and Upjohn’s negligence reflected reckless disregard to women’s health, awarding nearly $ 20 million in punitive damages against Wyeth and nearly $ 8 million against Upjohn. The district court rejected Wyeth’s attacks on the compensatory award but set aside the punitive awards. The Eighth Circuit found there was sufficient documentary evidence of reckless disregard to warrant a new trial on punitive damages against Wyeth.

Jim Morris, who tried the case, looks forward to the new trial: “We appreciate the opportunity to once again present evidence of Wyeth’s conscious disregard for the rights and welfare of Ms. Scroggin to a jury. Most juries find Wyeth’s conduct to be reprehensible and we expect Arkansans to be equally incensed yet again.” Walker said the decision is great news for breast cancer victims throughout the country. “Studies show that E+P has caused over a quarter of a million women in this country to develop breast cancer. Only a fraction of those women have filed suit. This decision ensures that these women may continue their pursuit for justice.”

This Year, Get In the Mood Again, by Making Just a Few Simple Changes in Your Lifestyle


This Year, Get In the Mood Again, by Making Just a Few Simple Changes in Your Lifestyle

Jacksonville Beach, FL (PRWEB) January 4, 2010

Surveys report that over 40 million Americans live in a no-sex or low-sex marriage! For those Americans, lovemaking is increasingly infrequent and, on the rare occasion they do have sex, it just isn’t as much fun as it used to be. Many people blame their dwindling sex drive on age, stress, weight gain, and fatigue. They are resigned to a sex-less life.

The dynamic husband and wife team Genie James, M.M.Sc. and C.W. Randolph, Jr., M.D. are natural hormone health experts who offer, not only hope, but a solution for such couples with their latest book, In the Mood Again: Use the Power of Healthy Hormones to Reboot Your Sex Life – at Any Age (A Fireside Paperback Original; January 2010; 978-1-4391-4916-4; $ 14.99). In the Mood Again shares their unique three-step plan that has helped thousands of women and men safely and naturally regain their sexual spark.

For all men out there – they can throw out their Viagra because this book is for them too! Containing separate chapters and advice for men and women, In the Mood Again tells readers that no matter how old you are or how long it has been since you felt “in the mood,” you can once again enjoy regular, passionate and relationship-enriched sex. Even better, medical research shows that a renewed sex life can become a secret fountain of youth giving you more energy, helping you lose weight, improving your overall health and well being and also contributing to extended longevity.

Genie James and Dr. Randolph have created two natural solutions that can either intersect or stand alone, both approaches beginning and ending with your hormones. The first approach involves replacing the hormones your body is missing with ones just like it used to make. This approach is not accomplished by prescribing previously popular synthetic hormones (such as the brand names Premarin or Prempro) that many recent medical studies have linked to an increased risk of breast, uterine and prostate cancers, heart disease, stroke and dementia. Instead, these experts recommend bioidentical hormone replacement therapies (BHRT), which are plant-derived hormone molecules that are synthesized within a laboratory to have exactly the same molecular structure as the hormones produced by the ovaries or testes.When BHRT is used to restore optimum hormone levels, the human body safely and effectively recognizes and receives them.

For more than a decade, Dr. Randolph has used BHRT to treat thousands of women and men suffering from low libido and/or sexual performance problems. After only 3 months on an individualized prescription of BHRT, 92% of Dr. Randolph’s patients report a complete restoration of sexual desire. 99% of all patients indicate they have more energy and 87% say they have lost 10 pounds or more.

If you aren’t sure BHRT is for you, Genie James and Dr. Randolph offer an alternative holistic approach to boosting lagging hormone levels. This 3 step program combines a hormone-healthy diet with clinically-tested herbal approach to boosting lagging hormone levels and specific lifestyle choices. It is safe, simple, relatively inexpensive and best of all – it can work for life! In the Mood Again offers these simple steps along with a weekly shopping list of foods and supplements, and a checklist of lifestyle choices readers can make every day to help transition to a happier and healthier life.

1. SEXY-HEALTHY EATING: Change your diet to foods that balance estrogen levels and boost testosterone production. While this plan promotes weight less and a healthier body mass composition, it is not a calorie counting program. It is a lifetime approach to eating your way towards better sex.

2. HERBAL MEDICINE: In contrast to bioidentical hormone replacement, herbal medicine takes a more gradual and gentle approach to boosting lagging testosterone levels (the hormone of desire and pleasure) and restoring balance between all sex hormones. It is a centuries-old science using plant-based medicine to increase libido, stamina and pleasure.

3. EXERCISE: Regular exercise positively impacts your hormone levels, increases blood flow to your genitals, whittles away those pounds around your middle, shifts that stress off your shoulders, and gives you the confidence and energy you need to get naked and have a great time. Exercise equals more of the hormones you need to want and enjoy more sex.

Including client stories, reader quizzes, and scientific studies to support their program, In the Mood Again is the definitive guide to helping couples revive their sex life. The side effects of this no-drug, no-porn program? A trimmer body, more positive moods, better health, extended longevity, and happier, closer relationships!
