Learn About Alternative Medicine


Belina Storrey

There is so much to be learned about health and medicine, sometimes it is easy to get overwhelmed. Most people I know do not really take the time to think about the ways they are taking care of their body and the effects of their choices on their short and long term health. I have been learning a lot about various types of alternative medicine and I have become convinced that more people need to be informed that there are options for your health and fitness needs.

Basically, alternative medicine deals with a wide variety of non-traditional medicines and methods of treatment for all of the medical situations people can find themselves in. People have begun to be more concerned lately with the things that they are putting into their bodies, so alternative medicine has become somewhat of a buzzword that is being thrown around among health-conscious people right now.

I became interested in alternative medicine when I had to research and write about the latest trends in it for an article in my magazine. I had quite honestly never given much thought to the doctor’s orders for certain medications and methods of treatment until I began researching for this piece. I soon realized how cautious we should be about anything that we put into our bodies. After all, we only get one body to live in and take care of, so it is solely our responsibility to be knowledgable about ourselves and to make the best possible choices for our own health.

I think this ownership factor is the thing I appreciate most about people who are interested in alternative medicine. They are mostly proactive people who are looking for new ways to treat their symptoms and who are convinced that the more natural something is, the better it is for them and for their health.

There is far too much to say about alternative medicine here, so my simple purpose is just to inform you that you are responsible for your health. You are responsible for all of the foods you eat, the drinks you drink, and the medicines and treatments that you choose. So choose wisely. Take time to consider all of your options, and see if alternative medicine might provide a better solution for you and your health needs.

You can easily learn more by doing an internet search or by grabbing some books on alternative medicine. There is a ton of information out there, so just begin today to sift through the resources and find information that is helpful for you.

What Is Uric Acid.

Submitted by: Eric DeBuck

Gout can be caused by high uric acid levels in your blood. Learning about uric acid and how it effects your body can give you the knowledge to make changes and possibly avoid future attacks. Uric acid is produced when our bodies digest foods that contain purines. Uric acid is also in your body naturaly.

Most of us run into problems when we consume to many foods that are high in purines. A few foods high in purines are: red meat, organ meat, mushrooms, shrimp, and sardines. When your body can’t filter out the uric acid fast enough it can begin to form crystals on your connective tissue. This usually happens in your lower extremities. The crystals are shaped like needles and cause the pain.

Staying hydrated is very important to help your body filter out the uric acid in your blood. It’s water soluable, so help your kidneys out by drinking a lot of water. Drink water during the day even if you are not thirsty. Try to drink 10 to 12 glasses of water per day.

Stay away from alcohol and caffine because they are diuretics and dehydrate you. Plus, beer contains purines. Stay away from foods high in fat. Fat can bog down your kidneys. Makeing it harder to filter out the blood in your body. The harder you make your kidneys work the harder it is for them to clean your blood.

There are a few ways to lower uric acid levels in your body. Avoiding foods high in purines is the first thing you should do. Do a little homework and learn about foods high in purines. Exercise can lower uric acid levels. 20-30 minutes of exercise 4 times a week will help to lower uric acid levels. Low fat dairy products are great for controling uric acid levels.One glass of low fat milk daily can help lower uric acid levels.

People are often overwhelmed when their doctor tells them they have gout. They have no idea what they need to do. Most people don’t even know what gout is or what causes it. The doctor told them to take this pill for a week and the pain will go away. What about the rest of your life? Yah, the doctor told you to stay away from red meat and don’t drink as much. That doesn’t help much. Pork is the other white meat? Right! No, pork is high in purines. When you think you are eating the right foods you are not. That is why it is so important to do your own research. Don’t believe what your friend or neighbor tell you.

If you think you have gout and haven’t been to the doctors office yet. Do some homework and write down any questions you have for them. Remember, you are paying for their services, so get your moneys worth out of them and ask as many questions as you can.

About the Author: I hope you found this information helpful. I have suffered from gout in the past. I have done a lot of research and applied what I learned to my daily life. I haven’t had a gout attack in almost 3 years. Everything I learned I put on my website. Check out

What’s Really In Your Supplements?! More Creatine Testing!

By Will Brink

An Update on Creatine Purity


As some well informed readers might recall, I wrote an expose on the various impurities and contaminants found in certain creatines on the market a few years back. The article was called “What’s really in your creatine?”. The article took a close look at the large variations in the quality of different creatines and killed the long standing myth that “creatine is creatine.” I expected the article to have an effect on the creatine market both from a wholesale and a retail perspective, and it did. As I predicted in that article, It also got me into hot water with many companies and individuals who sell less than pure high quality creatine. My exact words were “What I am about to tell you is not going to make me a very popular person with many supplement manufacturers. In fact, some of them are going to be down right pissed off at me.” I recall the drunk owner of one well known supplement company coming up to me at an after hours party at a convention and slurring “Hey Brink, you cost me a lot of money with that article of yours” to which I responded “serves you right for selling low grade creatine!” I knew where he got his creatine and it was junk. The article examined several key impurities often found in low grade creatines such as Dicyandiamide, Creatinine, Dihydrotriazine, and Sodium. Those who want to know more about those specific chemicals need to read the prior article. From the tests that were conducted on a dozen or so brands of creatine using high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC), it appeared the creatine made by a large pharmaceutical company out of Germany was far and away superior to creatine manufactured elsewhere, particularly China where the above chemicals could be found at very high levels.

For what ever reason, I have gotten the unenviable reputation as some sort of defender of the of the sports supplement consumer. The results came to me through the back door so to speak but the company who did the tests is a multi-billion dollar pharmaceutical company and one of the largest producers of chemical intermediates (including the chemicals used to make creatine) in the world.

They know their stuff when it comes to testing for chemical impurities, not that it takes a multi-billion dollar pharmaceutical company to do such tests anyway. I sat on the test info for a few months seriously considering whether I really wanted to write another such article and deal with the next drunk guy at some convention who gets mad at me because I exposed the fact that he sold low grade creatine. Hey, it’s not my fault what people do to save a few bucks rather than shoot for the good stuff like an honest business person should. I know the words “sports nutrition” and “honesty” seem like an oxymoron, but there are a few good people and good companies out there, not to mention the fact that a quality creatine really is one of the best supplements going and is perfectly safe as many studies have shown. In the end, I decided I could not sit on this information and live with myself. So, I dug through the giant pile of papers on my desk, blew the dust off the test results, and sat down to write another article on the current state of some of the creatine supplements we stick in our mouth. You ain’t gonna like what you read unfortunately.

The Current State of Creatine

In some ways, the current state of creatine is pretty much the same as it was last year. A few -though growing number- of companies willing to sell the more expensive and purer creatine and the rest selling creatines that range from OK to really bad! In some respects, at least from these tests, it appears that several of the US manufacturers have improved while the Chinese manufacturers have gotten worse! The accompanying chart is a whole new batch of tests from that of last years tests and shows some creatines are loaded with impurities, in some cases up to 34,000 parts per million (ppm) of a single impurity which is almost 3.5% of the product! Now remember, people don’t take say 200 milligrams of creatine, they take 5,000 or even 10,000 milligrams (5-10 grams) of creatine at a time. So, if the product has as much as 3.4% of an impurity, that’s 340mg of the impurity per 10 gram serving. During the loading faze the number would be even higher! It’s just a good thing that these chemical impurities don’t appear to be toxic though one of them (dihydrotriazine) has no toxicity data and therefore should always be found in the non-detectable (n.d.) range in my opinion. A high quality creatine will contain 50ppm or less of dicyandiamide, 100ppm or less of creatinine, 100ppm or less of sodium, and non-detectable (n.d.) amounts of dihydrotriazine. The “good stuff ” easily meets these standards and the rest often fall well short as the chart clearly shows. Now of course there are always going to be some batch to batch variations in the above numbers for any manufacturer, but those figures would be the average for any good creatine.

The State of Liquid Creatines and Gels

Where do I begin with the liquid creatine issue? As you can see from the testing chart done on liquid creatine and gels, it was not a very large sample size. However, the tests were done on the better known brands of liquid creatine and gels. What if a larger sample size of liquid and gel products had been tested? I would expect to see pretty much the same results. Why? Well, even though every company selling liquid creatines and gels wants you to believe they are the one company who has discovered the magic chemical formula for keeping creatine stable in any type of liquid/gel, there is no reason at this time to believe it’s true. What I do know is some of the top R&D scientists in the world have told me repeatedly that creatine will not and does not stay stable over months or years in a liquid or a gel period. I was told point blank by one of the largest creatine manufacturers in the world that they had been asked by one of the largest sports drink manufacturers in the world to design a liquid sports drink with creatine in it. They were unable to find a way to make the creatine stable in liquid no matter what they tried and lost millions in potential sales by being unable to produce the product. I suppose it’s possible that some small company or entrepreneur has discovered a stabilization process that eluded one of the top laboratories in the world that works with creatine, but I highly doubt it. Now, I actually have to back up somewhat from those harsh statements about liquid creatines and gels. I was recently contacted by a scientist from a company who said they are 90% sure they will have truly stabilized liquid creatine to be launched in the near future but none of them felt anything currently on the market was stable. Our small test results would seem to agree with that assessment, but anything is possible right? As the reader can see, one gel was as low as 11.2% creatine with lots of creatinine and the liquid was only 14.4% creatine. I leave it to the reader to make up their own mind regarding such products.


So what can the reader do with this information? As I stated in the first article: “As for the consumer, if it were me, I would demand the HPLC test results from whom ever I was buying my creatine from regarding the chemicals listed in this article.” The same still holds true today and the tests should of course be done by an independent lab. Most companies when asked for test results on creatine will send you a simple purity test.

A purity test will tell you little to nothing. The purity level of all the creatine products were also tested and they generally fell between 88 and 92%. Now before you go off yelling “but my creatine says 99% pure creatine monohydrate on the bottle,” you have to remember there is a small amount of water in creatine monohydrate which leaves plenty of space to hide impurities. So, if these impurities concern you, you should ask for the HPLC tests on those specific impurities. If you don’t care about it hey, that’s your business. So, more today than ever, the old expression “creatine is creatine” fails to hold water. However, a high quality creatine product it still the hottest thing going in bodybuilding/sports supplements. It increases strength, lean body mass, and, to a lesser extent, endurance, so a high quality brand of creatine is still a safe and effective supplement.

Supplements And Their Affects On Dogs

Submitted by: Brent Jones

Dogs can exist on a diet of meat, fruit, and vegetables. The benefits of supplements are overwhelming and can add several healthy years to your dog s life. Lifestyle and the foods and nutrients our pets receive make up 70 percent of their longevity, and 80-90 percent of the diseases in dogs are due to the degenerative processes that come with aging.

Major health changes occur in a short amount of time in dogs, as they age seven times faster than people (on the average). Aging is a process in which the body s systems deteriorate faster than the body can repair them, and dogs have different nutritional needs at different life stages.

Supplements can pick up where dog foods leave off with the added benefit that some medical conditions, like arthritis, and hip dysphasia can be treated with supplements. Vitamins such as A, B1, and Folic Acid; and minerals like potassium probiotics can help dog s live longer, healthier lives. The ideal supplements for your dog are those targeted to your dog s particular health needs, as determined by your vet.

Supplements are available in many forms, including liquid, pill, and powder forms. Features to consider in dog supplements are; the ingredients, efficacy , form-powder, pill or liquid, easy to give, veterinarian approved, and most important, appropriate for the age, weight, breed, and health of your pet.

Always remember to consult your veterinarian before choosing or giving supplements to your pet. Make sure the supplements you choose are for dogs, not cats or people, there are differences, and a follow-up exam by your veterinarian would give you a better indication of how well your dog s metabolism is benefiting from the supplements. Once the ideal supplement is found, regular use is the key to success for good health.

Supplements can be the key to good health for your pet. But remember to always use them in moderation and do not mix supplements, this could be potentially dangerous to your pet.

Exactly What Can I Do So I Could Lose Weight

Submitted by: Giovannipi Drake

For most people it’s not always his or her fault. More than likely you have so much happening in your life you do not have the opportunity to sit down and appreciate a healthy home cooked meal. Rather they pick up something from a road side stand or a fast food joint and scarf it down on their way to work, or even to a conference.

While some people will simply by all that unhealthy foods anyway since it is much easier to just pop something inside the microwave than it is to cook a nice meal. There are those individuals who can’t find any time throughout the day to eat and wind up eating just before bed. Each one of these small things are leading to your unwanted weight. It’s high time you give up eating late into the evening as well as start consuming more healthy items each day rather than big mac’s. In this article we will cover a couple of things you can do to get rid of some weight.

A number of people don’t get moving in the early morning and have to by pass breakfast, this is often a massive mistake. I know a lot of you probably miss breakfast, however without breakfast your metabolic rate will end up being sluggish throughout the day. It really is simple, whenever your body has food to process your metabolism goes to work. I am also not really stating that you ought to consume a huge breakfast. Merely something little like a couple of eggs or perhaps a grapefruit. This little change by itself can certainly help you lose weight.

Another excellent idea would be to take some healthy snack food items together with you when you leave your house for the day. For many individuals, at 10:00 each morning they have to go grab something to eat simply because they’re hungry, and this is normally something not good for you. Having the junk food may be avoided by having good snacks you can snack on. I realize that individuals need to have those in between meal snacks, but when you eat healthy snacks you will find that you can still shed the pounds you want to.

Rather than going out to lunch just about every day and not eating nutritious foods, try packing a nutritious lunch. This might surprise you but sensible food doesn’t originate from a drive up window. The same thing is true of your supper, prepare something nutritious.

Cook only enough food that will actually be the correct servings for consumption. This could seem kind of silly but let me explain. If you finish your supper and your still hungry, you’ll go back for seconds. And so simply by making just what you should eat, you won’t end up being tempted to only have a little more. Of course, if you really are still that hungry, your going to have to prepare something else. However, when you ate your food you will, most likely, just leave it at that.

Be sure to have something you can eat every couple hours. And this suggests healthy foods not something in the snack machine down the hallway. As a result you will help with keeping your metabolism in high gear assisting you to lose weight.
