Homeopathic remedies can help with the health of the eye and improve symptoms of conjunctivitis. As you may know, homeopathic remedies are suited to one's unique symptom picture, not a disease name. Thus the remedy mentioned herein may not suit your symptoms, and if so, consider consulting a registered homeopath for guidance. One example of a great homeopathic remedy called Euphrasia. This remedy is very common for the symptoms of conjunctivitis. Is is good in the first stage, that occurs from exposure to cold. The conjunctiva is reddened and vesicles are enlarged. Tissues are loose and bruised. The eye secretions are at first watery and slight and then progress to milky and purulent.

If you end up in the emergency room with a heart attack, make sure you insist on a 2 cc injection of magnesium sulfate.

In double-blind, placebo-controlled scientific study, they looked at 273 patients who were admitted to the hospital for a heart attack. The study published in one of the most prestigious medical journals revealed that after 4 weeks, the people who received the magnesium, only 7% died versus 19% who did not get the magnesium. That means magnesium cut the death rate a walloping 63%.

What was interesting is the fact that the study indicated that the people in the study were given far less than the 2 cc of magnesium recommended above.

Furthermore, the injection of magnesium decreased arrhythmias by 55%. Remember having a heart arrhythmia is one issue doctors are seriously concerned about following a heart attack.

In another study in the same medical journal approximately ten years later revealed that magnesium produced a 24% reduction in the number of deaths in one month after the heart attack.

Besides the proven benefits for victims of a heart attack, another study showed people who were given IV magnesium had a 76% reduction in death from a fatal blood clot. And by the way this same study showed that aspirin made no difference.

It is in your best interest to insist that your doctor check your magnesium levels. However, don't settle for the serum magnesium commonly ordered by most physicians. This test only evaluates the extracelluar magnesium which makes up only 1% of the magnesium in your body. You want your doctor to order the gold standard "intracellular magnesium test" which gives you the “real” picture of your level of magnesium in your body.

Your best protection is to keep your magnesium level high enough to possibly prevent having a heart attack in the first place. Considering that government studies show the average American diet only provides 40% of the magnesium that we need in a day, your best protection against a heart attack is to keep your magnesium level high enough. The best absorbed form of magnesium I've seen in 31 years is Magnesium Chloride Solution 200 mg/cc, and use half teaspoon once or twice a day.

The natural healing power and goodness of black rice has been very well noted in modern times. Loaded with antioxidants, Vitamin E, fibre, and valuable anti-inflammatory properties, this special rice is truly remarkable in its abilities.

Increased appetite and canine hunger, calc. and lyc. and no less silic. have shown themselves the most efficient remedies in my hands, likewise ver. alb. for excessive hunger after typhus. For the voracious appetite not exactly canine hunger, which torments people who are otherwise healthy, derived the best use from china, cina, verat. alb., and sometimes mec, sep and sulphur. For attacks of nocturnal hunger china is likewise an excellent remedy. If such attacks are accompanied by waterbrash and nausea, no medicine surpasses silic. and in children calc.
