Evidence 3 Oils May Lower Effects of Chronic Stress

Dr. Patrick B Massey, MD, PhD is well known as one of "America's Top Physicians" in Internal/Integrative Medicine. In a new opinion piece published by the Natural Health Reseach Institute, he writes: "There is evidence that three oils are important for chronic stress. Two are fish oils: eicosapentaenoic acid and docosahexaenoic acid [EPA & DHA] and one is found in cell membranes, phosphatidyl serine." (See "Some Supplements May Lower Effects of Chronic Stress," posted June 28, 2012.)

Unsuspected Aspirin Allergy May Translate to Food Allergies

Here's some intriguing information - "Aspirin Allergy May Translate to Food Allergies" by Dr. Rivkah Roth, a specialist in gluten and other sensitivities. According to Dr. Roth, many people may be allergic to the (acetyl)salicylic acid in aspirin, and in many common vegetables, spices and fruits, which she lists, as well as many personal products. As with other true allergies the more exposure to salicylic acid (as in the daily baby aspirin habit), the more severe the allergic symptoms as the years go by.

Most Food Pros Uninformed about Gluten; Online Training

According to a report on, fully 96% of chefs and restaurateurs at the National Restaurant Association Show in Chicago failed to answer 4 simple questions about gluten that are crucial for the safety of gluten sensitive people.

Study to Unravel Differences in FM Medication Response

The drug involved in this case will be the prescription drug pregabalen (trade name Lyrica®).


Large Lyme Vaccine Market Awaits Pharma Encouragement

Dogs can be vaccinated for Lyme, but 'expert' disagreements quashed marketing of the FDA-approved Lymerix vaccine in 1998.

When They Say, "You Can't Be That Sick"

Re: 'You're too young to be that sick!' and other misconceptions about invisible Illness

Unless you have cancer, a terminal illness, a broken arm or leg, something [people] can actually see, they think it's all in your head. Their comments are cruel and they haven't a clue what you're dealing with… I will not go out in public looking the way I do at home… If our critics could see the way we look while at home maybe they wouldn't be so quick to judge… This article says, find someone to talk to, like a support group. Well, I've tried to talk to my family and friends. They still don't fully understand. Finally, I found someone - a good Therapist. At least I have someone who will listen and who tries to help me. - J

I understand that the ones closest to you can hurt you the most. I have been ill with ME/CFS and fibromyalgia for the past 18 years... I have spent all these years trying to help my family to understand to no avail. I have come to the conclusion that we should just stay away as much as possible from everyone who doesn't get it, because it gives us a lot of stress, and increases our pain. - M


FDA's New Long-Acting Opioid Strategy

Karen Lee Richards, HealthCentral's fibromyalgia patient guide, has summarized key things to know about the FDA's new strategy regarding extended release opioid drugs. Her concern has been on "whether or not they would discourage some doctors from prescribing opioids for chonic pain patients who need them," she says. But "as they currently stand, I don't see anything in the new REMS that should have a negative impact on chronic pain patients.”


'Patient Expert' Corps Trained to Work with Others

An NHS project in North Lincolnshire, UK, is an "idea worth spreading," as the TED talks would say. The program trains people with chronic health conditions such as fibromyalgia to help others take control of their health - and have helped many - as explained in this article published July 12 by the Scunthorpe Telegraph ("Support Group Helped Me Regain Control of My Life").
