Scary Truths about Lipozene OTC

ShareTweet Over-the-counter Diet “Pill” Lipozene is all the rave, lately. The premise is it claims you are fat because of excess cortisol in your body.  What it doesn’t explain is that there are true medical reasons that you could have high levels of cortisol in your body. If Lipozene works for you, you probably are in desperate need of an endocrinologist. Your body produces cortisol through glands in the body , either because it is enlarged or even has a tumor on it. This makes using an over-the-counter product (mail order too) negative to your well being and health. I have not seen any of these warnings on the commercials I’ve seen about Lipozene.  I’ve seen more negative side-effects in commercials about pharmaceuticals than I have about this dangerous product that no one should risk their lives … Read entire article »

My personal secret, coming out of my cave to speak about my disability

ShareTweet Hello friends and family, I’m sorry for the distance between my posts. I hope that when new people find my pages, they find enough to enjoy, but I do always wish they had something new to keep them coming back, so I’m working on several new posts to come out in the next few days. Tonight, I want to tell you a little secret that may not be secret to many of you, but I’m going public with it now. I’ve spent the last year, or more, holding down my bed. Literally. My prescriptions total up to 30 now and I’ve gained 100 pounds of my lost 160, from my weight loss surgery, in less than six months. They always say that you gained it slow, don’t expect to lose it slow.. but I didn’t … Read entire article »

Have you seen the commercial about the lady on the laying on the couch in the mall?

ShareTweet This particular commercial about the lady on the red couch in the middle of the mall is about migraines and 1/2 living. I have to relate this situation and peek at how my life is.  I’m holding down my couch. I can see the Endo in the end of January, and I made the appointment in October. Now, new problem and I’m seriously considering a complete hysterectomy like my hematologist wants.  This health is just getting to the point of ridiculous. I’m the one on the red couch..  think of me when you see it. Life is moving around me. Well, what more can I say? The only test that came back abnormal was my upper high cholesterol. The HDL?  What a zoo. … Read entire article »

You Must See These – Its time to be disgusted

ShareTweet You’ve heard about how you should see Food, Inc.  And you should.  You should also add SuperSize Me to that list of Must See’s.  But I just finished watching King Corn and if you have Netflix, you should go watch it now.  I’m amazed.  I’m not sure any food is all that great for us anymore. We are killing ourselves one sip and bite at a time and only we can do something about this. I stopped eating fast food a long time ago.  I’m an avid food label reader.  I live with others who demand foods i would never buy.. but they are in my refrigerator. I <3 Dr. Pepper.  I can live on Pepsi Throwback from Publix until I can switch off the whole soda bandwagon. I’m not there, yet.  But … Read entire article »

Lowered body temperature and cold hands and feet to start..

ShareTweet I’ve been asking so many people, for the last year, what the medical words for “generalized lowered body temperature” were.  I just know there must be a name for this condition, yet no one has had an answer, yet. Recently, I’ve started back on some medications to help with the side-effects of my Fibromyalgia, because the pain has started to interfere with my daily life.  I spend countless hours, in my bed, under an electric blanket, being used like a heating pad for my hip and back pain. So, today, in my IN Box appears Dr. Mercola talking about Fibromyalgia.  It got my attention and I began to read many articles that I’d like to share snippets with you.. From http://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2011/02/26/dr-john-lowe-on-thyroid-disease-part-1.aspx A common give-away that you may be hypothyroid is feeling cold most … Read entire article »

My spoonfuls of Peanut Butter are sticking to my thighs!

ShareTweet Or maybe its the the Lindt Chocolate with Sea Salt.  Or maybe its the Dr. Pepper. This is becoming a very serious weight problem that my doctor is getting involved with.  That’s how you know your weight is getting out of control. Your doctor mentions it to you and tells you to lose four pounds before you see him the next month. (Forget the 3 I lost from seeing him the week before.) So, after my appointment, next week, I’ll publicly announce my weight and go from there, reducing it. (I don’t think I’m over 212.) My weight loss surgery honeymoon was over 7 years ago.  I’ve done real well, for a long while.  I seem to gain with certain medications that I take. (But, I fear its really the Dr. Pepper. :) … Read entire article »
