Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) is a chronic, episodic intestinal disorder characterized by abdominal pain and altered bowel habits that affects one in seven Americans.

IBS can have a substantial impact on health and well-being. The health-related quality of life of irritable bowel sufferers can often rival that of much more serious disorders.

The first step toward successful treatment is for physicians to acknowledge the condition and not dismiss the patient as hysterical.

There is a huge unmet therapeutic need and the lack of effectiveness of available treatments often discourages sufferers from seeking medical care.  …read more of Peppermint Oil, a Safe Alternative for Irritable Bowel Syndrome that Actually Works? here

Eggs are the number one source of dietary cholesterol in the American diet. Just one egg contains 186 mg of cholesterol. That is the same amount of cholesterol as a Big Mac and more than 60 percent of the calories in eggs are from fat.

Hypercholesterolemia, particularly high LDL cholesterol is a recognized risk factor in the development of Coronary Heart Disease (CHD), but what about diabetes?

Researchers have found a graduated increase in the risk of developing type 2 diabetes with a corresponding increase in the amount of eggs consumed. Eating just one egg a week appears to increase the risk of diabetes by 76 percent. Two eggs a week appeared to double the risk, and just a single egg a day actually tripled the risk.

Some things are hard to give up, even when we know they are detrimental to our health, primarily because of the myriad of emotional attachments and associations that we all have with food.  …read more of Weight Loss … Supplements and Symbology here
