-Troll postings are often inflammatory (flamers), attacking threads because they "disagree" with the content....

Study finds negativity tied to physical pain

Baby Robin Today

Posted 05-30-2011 at 08:10 PM by kind2creatures (NatMedTalk and Beyond)

I have pine and spruce trees in my backyard, and every spring there's lots of chirping from the local birds. I love springtime and watching the birds, but unfortunately there's usually a baby bird that gets tossed from its nest and ends up in my yard. Sometimes my dogs will get to it before I even know it's there. Other times, I'm able to locate the nest, and with the help of my husband, we place the baby back in its nest, and hope for the best.

Medicine Savvy

Posted 05-27-2011 at 06:46 PM by kind2creatures (NatMedTalk and Beyond)

It's always smart to exercise caution when using any medications, whether prescription or natural. Many pharmaceuticals have a historical connection to herbal medicine, and are derived initially from herbal extracts.

Both prescription medicines and herbs affect the person taking them very individually. Some may experience allergic reactions, some may have side effects that exacerbate their already existing medical conditions. Some medicines should not be given to pregnant or breast-feeding...

Do Yourself A Favor...Embrace Happiness!

Posted 05-20-2011 at 07:10 PM by kind2creatures (NatMedTalk and Beyond)

There's many things in our lives that create stress, and It's how much power we give to those occurrences that can have a negative effect not only on ourselves, but on those close to us. Sadly, health is one of those things that is not usually appreciated until it is lost, and a positive and happy state of mind has an enormous influence on our physical and mental well-being.

It's a good practice to lighten-up and be open to accepting little things in our daily lives that can bring...

Controlling Urinary Tract Infections without antibiotics.

Posted 05-09-2011 at 02:56 AM by Ted_Hutchinson

I though it may be an idea to copy a series of posts from another forum to this site as it may be relevant to readers here.
Controlling Urinary Tract Infections.
I mentioned on another thread how I no longer get UTI infections although I have to self catheterise every time I need to pee.
I don't have to explain to people how tiring, stressful and debilitating having repeat UTI's can be. For those who aren't aware if you continually insert a foreign body into a part of your...
