An Interesting Website

    I am interested in alternative medicine.  I don't like to take prescription drugs unless it is absolutely necessary so I am always trying to discover things that may be missing in my diet to help my body overcome disease.  As I was looking for information on a product I saw advertised, I came across this website:  The site has several pages of alternative treatments for common ailments.  

This disclaimer is posted at the top of each page:

"The information on this page was obtained from various consumer-oriented Medical Newsletters. It is presented for informational and research purposes only. Transformation Technologies can not guarantee the accuracy of information on this page. This information should not be construed as medical advice. Please consult with your health care practitioner before you start a new health care regimen. Even though many of the products listed below are naturally formulated, they can have powerful effects on the body and some products, supplements, herbs, etc. could potentially have adverse interactions with prescription medications. The URL links listed may have changed in some cases. We do have a list of some favorite supplement suppliers at the end of this page. Be sure to scroll through this entire page to find the health tips you need. Topics are presented in a basic alphabetical order."

I found many interesting ideas as I was browsing the pages.  One in particular, I passed on to two of my children who have suffered from kidney stones.  

Kidney Stones 

Magnesium /B6 - research shows that a small dosage of daily vitamin B6 (10 milligrams) along with 100 milligrams of magnesium, in the form of magnesium citrate or malate (not magnesium aspartate) - significantly inhibits kidney stone formation. Magnesium also reduces the painful spasms associated with a kidney stone attack and helps to dislodge the stone from the tube leading from the kidney to the bladder (the ureter). Look for combination formulas or take individually. 

This seems to be a common sense idea to try.  What can it hurt?  And maybe it will help.  So if you, too, are interested in discovering what research is finding in many different health areas, you may want to check out the site.
