Lithium: How Good is it?

Many people worry that lithium is one of psychiatry's "Big Guns", something we use for patients with really severe mental illnesses.  They think, "Hey, I'm not that sick", and conclude that lithium is not right for them.

They don't know that lithium, in lower doses, is used in plain depression (not bipolar, not severe).  In fact, for depression that hasn't fully responded to an antidepressant, one research group calls it  "Step 1A" -- the thing to do, in some cases, before switching to another antidepressant.

But one of the strongest arguments for lithium is the way it appears to protect neurons.  So I wanted to show you the world's expert on how lithium works, talking about this aspect of lithium's potential benefits.  His full comments, on a range of topics, from his interview with a great bipolar advocacy organization, can be read on this link at the Child and Adolescent Bipolar Foundation(CABF).

Poisoned! What to do when your dog is poisoned by criminals


What to do when your dog is poisoned by criminals

This guide dedicated to the memory of Misha, who died at the hands of criminals who poisoned him on the 8th of August, 2011, at the age of 14 months.

The research I was doing for this document was tested when the same criminals returned a month later to complete a job interrupted. Thankfully, we were able to save Ludwig, the Blood Hound, without any complications.

I sincerely hope that this guide will help others save their dogs when the unthinkable happens.

Signs of Intestinal Virus

Intestinal viruses cause a condition called viral gastroenteritis. According to the National Digestive Diseases Information Clearinghouse, viral gastroenteritis is the second most common illness in the United States, causing millions of cases of diarrhea each year. It is highly contagious and, while usually mild, can cause severe disease in the elderly, in very young children and in those with a weakened immune system.


There are several viruses that cause gastroenteritis. Rotavirus is the most common cause of gastroenteritis in children. It usually affects children less than 2 years old, mostly during the winter and spring. Caliciviruses cause disease in all age groups. One of them, the norovirus, is responsible for epidemics of gastroenteritis between the months of October and April. And even though viral gastroenteritis is called "the stomach flu," the flu virus usually does not cause gastroenteritis,

The Age of Treason: 1958 Book Exposes Chemical Attack on Humanity

By Daniel Taylor

Dr. R. Swinburne Clymer was in many ways a man ahead of his time, and most certainly controversial. He was attacked by the medical establishment for connecting diet with disease and mental health in his 1917 book Dietetics. Dr. Clymer received his medical degree in 1902 from the College of Medicine and Surgery in Chicago and began practicing Osteopathy. Accusations of fraud surround Dr. Clymer’s career, including this 1923 edition of the Journal of the American Medical Association which claims that, “Our records fail to show that this man was ever regularly graduated by any reputable medical college.” What Clymer had to say more than likely had something to do with the denouncement that he received from the medical establishment.
