  1. DO YOU THINK THAT PREIMPLANTATION GENETIC TESTING CAN BE A USEFUL PROCEDURE FOR SOMEONE WHO IS SUSPECTED OF HAVING FAMILIAL CUSHING'S, AND DOESN'T WANT TO PASS IT ON TO THEIR CHILD? IS THERE JUST ONE GENE RESPONSIBLE FOR FAMILIAL CUSHING'S? WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS ON PREIMPLANTATION GENETIC TESTING? ALSO, DO YOU BELIEVE THAT "NATURAL" SUPPLEMENTS SUCH AS THOSE SOLD AT VITAMIN STORES THAT ARE MARKETED FOR GROWTH HORMONE PRODUCTION CAN BE BENEFICIAL FOR THOSE WHOSE INSURANCE DENIES GH, AND WHOM ARE SEVERELY DEFICIENT? THANK YOU FOR DOING THIS~
  2. Hi Peggy. I've been wanting to contact you, but you don't have enough posts to use the messenger. Please email at labellavitabrasil@yahoo.com so we can talk. Thanks!

  3. Saturday Sep 20 2008 (foodconsumer.org) -- Got hypertension? It may be time to try intravenous injection of vitamin C. A new Italian study found that vitamin C intravenously delivered can lower blood pressure by acting on an overactive central nervous system. Dr. Rosa Maria Bruno from the University of Pisa, coauthor of the study, was quoted by healthday.com as saying "our study demonstrated for the first time in humans that we can reduce sympathetic nervous system over-activity, and consequently blood pressure, (by) targeting oxidative stress." The sympathetic nervous system (SNS) is part of the central nervous system that controls blood pressure among other things. Low activity of the SNS is coupled with the onset of elevated blood pressure. The finding was presented Friday at the American Heart Association's Conference of the Council for High Blood Pressure Research held in Atlanta. Early studies have already showed that vitamin C and potentially other antioxidants in the blood may help lower the risk of stroke. The current study involved 12 patients with an essential form of high blood pressure who had not received any treatment for their high blood pressure. All the participants were intravenously administered three grams of vitamin C during a period of five minutes and then monitored for blood pressure and SNS activity for 20 minutes. It was found that SNS activity dropped by 11 percent and blood pressure was lowered by about 7 percent on average. The decrease in diastolic blood pressure was 9 percent while systolic blood pressure did not change significantly. VITAMIN C ARTICLE CLICK HERE

  7. Hi Nicole! I just wanted you to know I was thinking of you. So sorry you have to have more stuff done this coming week, I hope it takes care of all of it. Were you able to celebrate your birthday at all, or do you have to wait still until you are better. I will call you soon, but no worries if you are not well enough to talk.

  8. Does anyone know if they could do that test here?!
  9. Anyone want a trip to Brazil?! Thanks for the info Mary, it's very interesting!
  10. Hi Mary, I apologize for not posting on here sooner. I know I had discussed with you a possible June chat, but I'm just not up to it right now. I anticipate I'll be up to it in July though. This infection has really taken a toll, and I'm finally turning that corner. Thanks Mary:)
  11. Hi Nicole! I hope you can get out of the hospital today! I hope you feel better! Hugs!!!

  12. I would do it, although I haven't had surgery yet. Is there a guideline on who can speak based on diagnosis/treatment?
  13. I love the colors and shapes. I would have done different words, but that's just me! You certainly have a talent! I'm about as good as grabbing a pair of fiskars and rubber cement!
