Ongoing SLIT experiments with various irritants/allergens somewhat positive.

For all of 2010, and perhaps beyond, I intend to continue with my inexpensive (cost=ZERO), at-home SLIT allergy treatments for Asthma.

Bunionectomy - the good, the bad and the ugly

Posted 08-30-2011 12:35 PM by emmac25

I've had very bad bunions for as long as I can remember, as well as hammer toes on both second toes. My big toe was bent probably towards 2pm on my right foot! It was very very bad, and for my age (30) my surgeon said it was one of the worst she...

Also called social phobia, social anxiety is a disorder that is characterized as being more than just a little shy or introverted. With social anxiety, you have a very specific and very real set of physical and...
