Drugs Test Generator

Test Generator Software is another device that is used for the purpose of achieving the skill evaluation lab. This is a platform that has been devised to enable individuals to conduct studies on their own. It is used in the lab to enable students facilitate easier pumping of skills within themselves. It is possible for the users to easily create test files. It is possible for the users to use the test files with different types of the questions. At the same time, the students or those being trained in any field are able to share the files with others. However, you will share the files with the other people who are also using the Test Generator Software.

Test Generator is a device that has been designed to specifically be used offline in the labs. The users are able to create their own tests for the purpose of evaluation. Using the platform, it becomes very easy for the users to create questions of any form. On the same test platform, the Test Generator Software user can create questions with either single or multiple choices. There are features that allow the addition of drawn images in the questions. Using the Hypertext mark-up language or the HTML editor, the user will be able to add scenario or give description explanation to the questions that have been created.

Test Generator is a computer based technology that is intended to offer evaluation solution to the exam management body. This includes the evaluation of the performance by the employees in the industries. The software is also used by the resource manager during the recruitment process of the employees. Pre- employment process that is very common in the industrial set up can also be achieved through the use of the Test Generator Software. The software is recognized globally for the purpose of achieving post-employment testing for the newly recruited employees in a given evaluation. In addition to that, the companies and the working organizations are using the software for evaluation and training. Most importantly, exam preparation is still achieved by the software.

The reason as to why most people have fallen for the software is because of its nature of being cost effective. The human resource managers prefer the software for evaluation process and assessment of the employees due to its accuracy of prediction of the performance. The generator lab has been proven to be more effective a tool for assessment than any other product. It is also known to produce results very fast. EPractize lab is the company that came up with this skill evaluation lab tool.

There are different versions of the software that are available in the market. It is easy to download the Test Generator Software and install. There is the trial version which is available to users free of charge. The full version of the software is available to the user at a cheaper fee. There is no need of going for the other methods yet you have Test Generator Software which is next generation software.

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. QUESTION:
    Do You think drug testing violates students privacy?
    tell wether you are for or agianst drug testing why why not. and who you are (John Q. Student, a father of student who tested negitive of his drug test)
    in high school

    • ANSWER:
      In general, drug tests are divided into two groups. The first group is sophisticated lab drug tests. In this type of testing the donor gives a sample of urine, blood, hair, or saliva/oral fluid or hair to an employer, doctor, law enforcement official, or a dedicated testing center. After collection from the donor, the sample with a tamper-evident seal / integrity seal is sent for laboratory analysis. The primary advantages of this type of test are accuracy, legal defensibility, and the ability to customize tests for a particular demographic group. The disadvantages are typically costs associated with the need for collection sites (urine, blood), and the delay in receiving results (up to 5 days). The other type, on-site screens, done with an inexpensive kit, allow results within minutes. Besides urine, urine alternative samples, such as saliva or oral fluid have been used in on-site testing in order to eliminate the problem of "beating the tests" (otherwise known as sample adulteration or substitution). Unfortunately, current saliva/ oral fluid test methods are not sensitive enough to detect many drugs of abuse. Another improvement in on-site screen, is urine test cup that collects and detects in the same container device.

      In the United States today, random drug testing is used by corporations, drug rehab centers, prisons, the military, police and fire departments, government agencies, and more recently, schools. This method may also be used on teens by their parents, or mandated to be performed on teens at school. The point of a random drug test is deterrence, as the threat of detection is much higher versus other testing methods. Various questionable methods are utilized to determine who gets tested, ranging from drawing names out of a hat, to using more defensible methods such as robust random number generators. However, many random drug testing selection systems are legally indefensible because there is nothing to prevent users from targeting individuals by regenerating names with the random generator until the desired result is produced. Most systems have no tamper-proof audit trail (database records are easy to change, so employers or their testing agents must not have access to the audit trail records for the random selection to be defensible). Finally, hiring third parties to randomly select drug testing subjects is not legally defensible because there is no way of proving that there was no collusion to select a specific individual.

      The goal of random testing is to discourage drug use among employees, inmates, or students by not telling anyone who or when they are to be tested in advance. However, critics claim that random testing introduces a presumption of guilt, and is a violation of privacy if the user is not actually intoxicated during working hours. In addition, random testing is more likely to catch cannabis users, since THC metabolites have a longer duration in the body than those of many other drugs.

      Good luck to you.

  2. QUESTION:
    does the AAA call center drug test?
    i have a interview coming up at the call center for aaa (or triple a), im wondering if the actule call center drug tests or if its for truck drivers only,has any one worked at the aaa call center and know if they drug test and if they do is it immidatly or do they send u some wher?im a casule smoker
    soo evan if its just in the call center they drug test is it like right ther and then or later on in the week?

    • ANSWER:
      Triple A call center customer service representatives are required to undergo a pre-employment drug test. Not sure if they use a random drug test program (after hiring) or not.

      Whenever a drug test is mandated for any reason - the test is done at the first opportunity whether administered at the location, or at a nearby designated clinic/drug testing facility. They are never done "later on in the week", or even the next day. (See 1st link below for specific state rules about administering drug testing programs.) There was a time limit between notification and obtaining the sample in a company I worked for as an over the road truck driver, but I don't remember exactly what that limit was (seems like it was 2 hrs.), it might vary depending on employer and/or jurisdiction. My random draw was discarded that time rather than having me take the test beyond that limit. I have gone a year or two with no test and I have had two or three in one year as a result of the randomness of the draw. That was with a larger company - 2,000 drivers. I believe the drivers were in a separate pool from anyone else being required to take the test, if there were any others.

      Under any program I'm aware of, after being hired by a company - individuals can only be chosen for testing by random draws (normally done with a random number generator type computer software program), in which each employee in that pool is given an equal opportunity of being chosen, in case of an accident, or if there is a "reasonable suspicion", but they cannot choose in a manner that could be used in an unfair/prejudicial way (like directly picking 1, 10, 20, or whatever specific employees out of that pool - although "reasonable suspicion" does leave some room for abuse, IMO).

  5. QUESTION:
    Why will Obama not tackle the drug problem in the United States ?
    Was Obama required to pass a drug test before being allowed to accept the presidency? I had to just for the job as an electrician. Will he volunteer for one?
    Why will none of you admit that the problem is with the consumers and not the suppliers?

    • ANSWER:
      That is a good question for Obama. For someone who continually smokes cigarettes and has admitted that he took cocaine, which is incredibly addictive, he really should be taking a drug test every three months or so.

      Politicians have waged a war on drugs and they have also waged a war on poverty... neither of which has any exit strategy. Both of these "wars" are convenient crisis generators for the Democrats.

      UPDATED 3-5-2005: Bug fixed for PalmOS 5.

      Download FalseAlarm for your Palm Pilot. It s free! No more setting your clock ahead ten minutes: FalseAlarm creates a random alarm clock for your Palm Pilot. The random alarm clock functions like a normal alarm clock except the alarm sounds ahead by a random amount of time. For instance, if the alarm is programmed to go off at 7:00am it may actually go off at 6:54am. The clock, however, will display 7:00am. Thus, you ll see that it is time to get up even though you may have some extra time to do so.

      Although you know there is a random offset and that you may have extra time, you don't know how much. Thus, you cannot compensate for the offset by sleeping in for the extra amount of time. You'll be surprised how effective the FalseAlarm is!

  8. QUESTION:
    Has anyone tried the ju99 life force generator? What was the result?
    I suffer from depression and since I've tried medications even shock theraphy I thought there might be something to this "life force" thing.

    • ANSWER:
      To me,i dont "believe" in the machine that you are talking about and my opinion would be to say your money.
      You didnt mention what you have tried specifically but there are also some herbal medicines that can help with some types of depression too.
      Assuming that you've tried them also,then to me you should get lots more diagnostic testing to determine whether your depression is really just depression or whether its a secondary process and if theres an underlying undiagnosed medical condition causing it because theres quite a large range of medical conditions that can cause depression/depressive like symptoms eg: carcinoids,hypothyroidism,vitamin deficiencies,drug sideeffects,coeliacs,liver disorders,heart disease,tumors,TLE,sleep apnea and many more, that quite often do get unnoticed/undiagnosed if you have an old fashioned doctor that doesnt see the connection between sometimes seemingly related symptoms & thinks that depression symptoms are always of "strictly" mind origin/process.

  10. QUESTION:
    Is Salar de Uyuni safe?
    So after researching ad researching, I immediately fell in love with Salar de Uyuni in Bolivia. It's grace and beauty is unbelievable and seems as if heaven is on earth. I would obviously LOVE to travel there one day, but is it safe? Are the jeeps safe? How long is the trip? Best time to go? Clothing for the weather? There are so many questions I have but if anyone has been to Uyuni can you please tell your experience? At times, it seems as if the place is completely remote and dangerous, but Iwould love to go someday! Thank you.

    • ANSWER:
      WikiTravel says :

      "Accommodation is usually provided in basic refuges and the weather can be very cold, but it is well worth it for the amazing scenery. Avoid tours that offer a night in one of the salt hotels - they are illegal as, not being part of the water grid, they pollute the environment."

      "Be cautious due to drunk drivers. Every year there are some accidents on the Salt Desert, with drivers from the various companies drinking more than is healthy. Do not risk your life by traveling with a drunk driver."

      "Some advise to bring emergency supplies (including up to several extra days of food and water) in case the truck breaks down in a remote place, but unless you are on a custom tour there will likely be another truck along in a few minutes."

      "Altitude sickness is a real possibility here. If you are arriving directly from the coast, you may need up to a couple days to acclimatize. Dizziness, shortness of breath and headaches are common symptoms, but extended bouts of nausea and vomiting are not unheard of amongst those that have rushed their ascent. The locals swear by chewing coca leaves to help, and although they do relieve the symptoms, they taste terrible and may cause you to fail a drug test. Anyone not already fully acclimatized is advised to pick up some Acetazolamide from the pharmacy in Uyuni before departure."

      "In order to avoid altitude sickness, a gradual adaptation to the altitude is advisable, visiting initially Bolivian flat located at 500 masl Santa Cruz de la Sierra, then moving to the valley Cochabamba, located at 2,500 masl, and only then making the trip to Salar de Uyuni."

      "What to Bring :

      "Flashlight (torch) - the lights go out when the generator runs dry.

      Coins and small bills - The bathrooms aren't free.

      Sunglasses - the salt flats are blinding.

      Extra water - The tour usually provides an inadequate supply. An extra 2-liter bottle per day."

      More at : http://wikitravel.org/en/Salar_de_Uyuni

      The US State Department says :

      "Much of Western Bolivia is at the same altitude or higher, including Lake Titicaca, the Salar de Uyuni, and the cities of Oruro and Potosi. The altitude alone poses a serious risk of illness, hospitalization, and even death, even for those in excellent health."

      "Prior to departing the U.S. for high-altitude locations (over 10,000 feet above sea level), you should discuss the trip with your healthcare provider and request information on specific recommendations concerning medication and lifestyle tips at high altitudes. Coca-leaf tea is a popular beverage and folk remedy for altitude sickness in Bolivia. However, possession of this tea, which is sold in bags in most Bolivian grocery stores, is illegal in the United States. "Sorojchi pills" sold locally at pharmacies contain high amounts of caffeine and are not usually recommended."

      "The majority of intercity travel in Bolivia is by bus, with varying levels of safety and service. Bus accidents, at times attributed to drunk drivers or mechanical failures, have caused scores of deaths and severe injuries. In recent years, there have been major bus crashes on the highway between La Paz and Oruro, Cochabamba and Santa Cruz, Oruro and Cochabamba and on the Yungas road. The old Yungas road is considered one of the most dangerous routes in the world. Taxis, vans, and buses dominate intracity transportation. From a crime perspective, public transportation is relatively safe, and violent assaults are rare. However, petty theft of unattended backpacks and other personal items does occur. For safety purposes, the Embassy advises you to use radio taxis whenever possible. U.S. citizens taking unlicensed taxis have reported being robbed and assaulted."

  11. QUESTION:
    all i have is a g.e.d. and i want to get a job on an ocean boat of some sort. what are my best choices?
    for a job what kind of work could i do. somthing on a boat that goes across the ocean

    • ANSWER:
      You could join the Navy, as some people suggested. I've never been in the Navy, but from all the stories I've heard it's not for everyone, and you may not get the nautical experience that you are hoping for. There are a lot of jobs on Navy ships that keep the floating city running, but aren't really related to the navigation or engine maintenance.
      You could also try to get on a cruise ship, but again, you're likely to end up being janitorial staff, or wait staff. While these jobs are decent jobs you may feel more like hotel staff than a sailor.
      If your goal is to be a sailor, to be involved in the working of a ship then your best bet is to work on a ship that exists to move cargo. The function of a Navy ship is to protect the country and to transport troops. A cruise ship's function is to serve the passengers. A tanker, container ship or bulk carrier exists solely to transit the waters carrying cargo and to deliver that cargo.
      Commercial ships have fewer support staff, because everyone onboard is working to make the ship's owner a profit. Without a degree you can't be the captain or the chief engineer, but you can be an ordinary seaman or a wiper (engine room hand.) Seamen work on deck and with the navigational and cargo operations aspects of the ship and the ones who get to monitor cargo loading & discharge. The wipers work in the engine room with the mechanical aspects of the ship. These guys work with the engineers to maintain the pumps, motors, generators, separators and engines.
      Both Seamen and Wipers work very hard (physically) and are "unqualified" positions - that is entry level that does not require special training; just a mariner's document. This document is not difficult to obtain - you must be 18, have proof of ID, proof of health (pass a drug test.) If you want to sail in international waters you will also need some basic safety training - most companies will help you find this training, and many will help you pay for it.
      You could also be a day laborer - usually these guys are chipping and painting and doing other maintenance type stuff.
      There are also stewards on commercial vessels. The steward is responsible for preparing the menu and the food on a ship. I do not believe that you could be hired on as a steward with out any experience, but most ships have SA's (steward's assistants). This certainly isn't the most glamorous job on the ship - the SA is responsible for cleaning up the captain's room and doing other janitorial work.

      If your goal is to spend time on a ship you might prefer working on a cruise ship - they tend to roll less, and have a larger staff to make friends with. If your goal is to work your way up to a position where you really know what's going on with your ship, and you are responsible for ship activities you'll likely want to consider the less comfortable commercial vessels.

      Good luck!

  12. QUESTION:
    English project about liver cancer.. help!?
    I have to come up with a way to solve the problem (liver cancer) and since i cant solve cancer, I have to come up with a fundraiser or a way to raise awareness. There is a soccer field named after my grandmother who died of liver cancer, so i'm thinking maybe a soccer tournament?
    I need to make a 5 min speech about whatever i do. any suggestions?

    • ANSWER:
      I may be able to help you:
      If someone is diagnosed with liver cancer and the
      cancer tumor is only in one area of the liver, the
      doctor can do, what is known, as a resection.
      They will remove the part of the liver that has the
      cancer and the patient may be cured.
      The part of the liver that is left, should regenerate
      new cells and become a whole liver again.

      If someone has multiple cancerous tumors, that
      is in the liver only; they may be evaluated to
      be placed on the transplant list and receive a
      donor liver. This is usually the case if the tumors
      are small. However, they now have a way of
      reducing the size of the tumors by using
      Sir-spheres:
      http://www.umgcc.org/sir-spheres/about_sirt.htm
      http://www.sir.net.au/SIR_pi.html
      If this works, the patient may still be able to have
      the evaluation for transplantation.

      However, some people have liver cancer that comes
      from another area or the liver cancer goes to another
      area. This means that the prognosis is much poorer.

      Yet, there have been different developments to
      help all liver patients:
      IRE: IRREVERSIBLE ELECTROPORATION
      Radiologist used thin needles to insert probes around
      the tumor, it is then connect to a generator and it kills
      the tumors by using very high voltage electricity.
      http://innovations.coe.berkeley.edu/vol4-issue2-mar10/rubinsky
      PERCUTANEOUS HEPATIC PERFUSION OR PHP
      Use of catheters to deliver 10 times the normal amount of
      chemo directly to the liver and doesn't proceed any further
      than the liver. (This is still in trials)
      MRI GUIDED LASER ABLATION
      The lasers were guided to the tumors via MRI and destroyed
      them through heat.
      http://www.financialpost.com/markets/news/Mayo+Clinic+Finds+Early+Success+with+Laser+that+Destroys+Tumors+with/3677235/story.html
      MAGNETIC FLUID HYPERTHERMIA (MFH)
      Magnetic nanoparticles (each billionths of a meter in size) are in
      injected into the body intravenously and diffuse selectively into
      cancerous tissues. Add a high-frequency magnetic field, and the
      particles heat up, raising the temperature of the tumor cells...
      it actually fries the tumor cells (also in trial)
      NANO TECHNOLOGY gives us all hope in many different areas
      where surgery is concerned:

      People who support cancer research are not only helping those
      who have liver cancer, but many who have other kinds of
      cancer.

      I hope this information has been of benefit to you in giving
      a five minute speak on the subject.

  13. QUESTION:
    HIPAA, hospital and clinic violations?
    Bear with me, its long but certainly worth the read...
    I went to a low income clinic for prenatal care even though I had insurance and on my 1st visit was tested for illegal drugs without consenting to anything, I was not even 3 mos and tested positive for THC once the pregnancy was confirmed there were NO more positive results, however again I was tested a few mos later, again no consent, but results were negative, this was all unknown to me at the time, when I later gave birth to a very healthy child the nursery workers put a bag on my baby to collect urine and it was NOT a STERILE specimen,which they claim was positive for thc even though my prev tests had been neg,so CPS was notified and even though I took a UA for them and it too was NEGATIVE and no charges were filed the caseworker told a friend of hers in the office who who told an off duty cop pal of hers that I had TESTED positive which I didnt, and this cop told everyone she knew which made huge problems for myself and my husband at our high profile jobs, he was tested and his results were neg also, then the caseworker called after our tests to see what meds I had been prescribed during the pregnancy to see why the baby had a false positive, she then said she was closing out the case on her end but still had to notify family services who would also visit us at home for an assessment, which is sched. for later this week. During my 5 day stay in the hosp. because of an epidural that went way wrong, I was given 2 appts for the baby, the billi check at 5 days which turns out the place they sent me had been closed for 6 MONTHS!!! and the 2nd appt was her 2 wk check up but they had no record in the computer even though I had a comp generator paper with the appt on it, they then did yet another heal stick on her and this come to find out wasnt necessary as she had this test in the hosp.
    My questions are these...
    1. Are the clinics allowed to drug test you without your consent?
    2. Were HIPAA laws violated when an unrelated to the case CPS worker diclosed to an off duty cop my medical records and then LIED about the results?
    3. After 4 UAs that were ALL NEGATIVE isnt CPS harassing me by continuing to be in my life with no good reason even after multiple visits to our home?
    4. Cant something be done about this hospital that sent us to a place they should have known had been closed for 6 mos and then they unnec. stuck my child for a test they HAD ALREADY done?
    if they can mess up like that who is to say they didnt mess up on her urine test especially when all previous and following tests on myself and my husband were negatvie for THC (marijuana)? Can they take her urine without our consent?
    My hubby is a cop so we have insurance thru his job, but I also have medicaid to cover anything his insurance would not
    We are in Tx
    They had to know the place was closed, its affilaited with the hospital and was severly damaged by Hurricane IKE 6 mos ago

    • ANSWER:
      What an unholy mess!
      1. According to this, http://www.jointogether.org/news/headlines/inthenews/2001/supreme-court-rules-against-2.html , drug testing is a no no for pregnant mothers. See a malpractice lawyer.
      2. CPS is not subject to HIPAA, however such matters are supposed to be confidential. Meet with the supervisors for all parties and bring evidence. You can sue for defamation if you can prove it.
      3. Find an attorney to sit with you for the consultation. Inform them that if they continue, you will have them charged with harassment.
      4. Contact State Department of Health and file a complaint. It will hurt like hell if its substantiated.

  14. QUESTION:
    Management and treatment of Koch infection. Combined antibiotics.?
    Koch's infection is the medical term for TB infection.

    It is ok to include treatment with Fixcom4 and Fixcom3 conbination with common antibiotics like mefenemic acid/penicillin to control pain and swelling on other common ailment. Gum swelling, throat infection, wounds.... and intakes of multivitamin supplements.

    The best treatment is the conbination of 4 antibiotics considered most effective by the UN for infectious desease control and it has to be taken over a period of time. Fixcom 4 for two months at 4 tablets per day to bombard the infection and fixcom3 there after for 4 months at 4 tablets per day for maintenence to prevent recurrence.

    Would other medication interferre with the TB medications?
    If there is other ailment that requires other medication will you have to stop the Fixcom intake?

    I hate this tag of desease on my self and would like to get rid of it as soon as possible so i have to make sure I make all days intake of Fixcom4 and fixcom3.

    • ANSWER:
      Hi Ed

      I dont know about drug combos, but here is what I do know. Ideas on how to get well.

      Cause
      TB is caused by the bacterium Mycobacterium tuberculosis. TB causes 1,800 deaths per year and 20,000 new cases are reported annually. The primary risk groups are older African-Americans, Hispanics, and Asians. Also at greater risk are people with illnesses that decrease immune function, such as alcoholics, malnutrition, diabetics, and people who are HIV positive.

      Caution: Drugs that act as immune suppressants, such as corticosteroids, can retrigger tuberculosis.

      --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

      Natural Cures

      Note: Prevention is the key to treating and minimizing the spread of TB. This is achieved through vaccinations, such as the Bacille Calmette-Gu rin (BCG) vaccine. Contact tracing using skin testing and x-ray should be performed on relatives and friends of patients with TB as an effective way to detect early cases of TB that have not yet presented with symptoms. Proper diagnosis must include a chest X-ray and skin and sputum tests, and proper treatment must include drugs.

      Diet: Eat an organic, whole foods diet that emphasizes raw vegetables and pure filtered water. Pears, pear juice, and pear sauce can also be helpful, as pears can help hasten healing of the lungs. Other helpful foods include fenugreek and alfalfa sprouts, garlic, pomegranate, and all forms of fermented milk such as yogurt and kefir.

      Herbs: Combine the tinctures of echinacea, elecampane, and mullein in equal parts and take one teaspoon three times a day. This remedy is very effective for soothing the lungs.

      Hydrotherapy: Hydrotherapy is the application of water, ice, steam and hot and cold temperatures to maintain and restore health. Treatments include full body immersion, steam baths, saunas, sitz baths, colonic irrigation and the application of hot and/or cold compresses. Hydrotherapy is effective for treating a wide range of conditions and can easily be used in the home as part of a self-care program. Many Naturopathic Physicians, Physical Therapists and Day Spas use Hydrotherapy as part of treatment. I suggest several at-home hydrotherapy treatments.

      Juice Therapy: Combine raw potato juice with an equal amount of carrot juice. Add one teaspoon of olive or almond oil and one teaspoon of honey, and drink three glasses each day.

      Lifestyle: Get plenty of fresh air, rest, light, exercise, and relaxation.

      Nutritional Supplementation: The following supplements are recommended for TB: Vitamin A, beta carotene, vitamin B complex, vitamin C, Vitamin E, multiminerals, essential fatty acids, zinc, garlic capsules, citrus seed extract, lipotropic formula, deglycerinated licorice, and lung glandulars.

      Topical Treatment: Eucalyptus oil packs applied topically over the lungs can help break up congestion and collected fluids.

      Alternative Professional Care
      If your symptoms persist despite the above measures, seek the help of a qualified health professional. The following professional care therapies have all been shown to be useful for treating TB: Acupuncture, Detoxification Therapy, Energy Medicine (Light Beam Generator, Ondamed), Homeopathy, Light Therapy, Magnetic Field Therapy, Oxygen Therapy, Qigong, and Traditional Chinese Medicine.

      Best of health to you

      Cheers

  15. QUESTION:
    How do I get blueberry stains out of camel-colored carpeting?
    A couple of the little guys escaped their cereal bowl a few weeks back and landed on my carpet. Since then, I've ground them in pretty good. So, what's a fellow got to do to get the stains out?

    • ANSWER:
      I second the "Stain Magic" approach. I carry it with me and just used it this morning. It is a high concentrate hydrogen peroxide that's catalyzed with ammonia. If you have some drug-store hydrogen peroxide, it might be worth a try. Put it on and let it sit until dry. It will continue to work as long as it's wet. A sodium percarbonate cleaner (Oxi-Clean, Stain Solver, etc.) is a hydrogen peroxide generator and might also be easier to find.

      >>>But, you must test for colorfastness (before using any cleaner) in an obscure spot first. <<<

  16. QUESTION:
    Intense Anxiety all day long, Plasma Norepinephrine is very High. Dr. doesnt' know what to do.?
    My body is making tons of Adrenaline, or so it feels. My plasma Norepinephrine is 429 on a scale of 0-399. Plasma Epinephrine is 40 on a scale of 0-99, Dopamine 15 on a scale of 0-142. What does all of this mean ? I feel intense anxiety all day long. Xanax does nothing. Benadryl helps a tiny bit. My Histamine plasma was 6 on a scale of 0-6 and that was with 50mg of Benadryl on board during the test. I've been tested for everything in the world that can be tested for and being told it's Dysautonomia, dysfunction of the Autonomic Nervous System. Thats great, but what do I do about it. I've tried SSRI's, whcih I can't tolerate the side effects. Benzos just sedate me, but don't combat the Anxiety. I get wired but tired.

    On on a High dose Beta blocker and that keeps my Hear rate from going through the roof, otherwise it does, especially from sitting to standing. My blood pressure hold just fine sitting or laying, so it's not POTS (Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome).

    Was thinking of trying Clonidine, but scared of the Sedation. I've tried Neuroleptics and they are terrible even at low doses. Which tells me it's not a 5HT2a problem. Since Benzos fail, it's not GABA related. Dr.s have been scratching their heads while I suffer with this 24/7. I wake up shaking out of bed, if I didn't have a night guard, I would have no teeth b/c of the grinding I do.

    Need some thoughts... It's like I have no Parasympathetic activity.. This was confirmed by a test called ANSAR. It's show I have 95% Sympathetic activity going on.. i.e. No Brakes, and stuck in Fight/Flight mode. Now my mood has gone down the toiled and I'm depressed. I take lots of 5-HTP, but this isn't helping my mood, so not sure if it's even a Serotonin problem.

    Thanks in advance...

    • ANSWER:
      I spent a lot of time looking into these brain chemical things, since I have bipolar that never responded to medications or ECT, and guess what - it turns out that it's a lot of hoopla about nothing. It appears that mental disorders are NOT caused by chemical imbalances, and this was a drug company lie all along. it was a good hypothesis, but has been disproven for like 20 years, and researchers have pretty much chucked it. Brain disorders are more complicated than that. Read "anatomy of an epidemic" for more on that, by robert whitaker. He also has a website madinamerica.com. You seem like a really good person to read that - he goes thru many, many studies and does a lot of statistical analysis. Another good book to read is 'the emperor's new clothes" by irving kirsch. Turns out antidepressants don't work except thru placebo effect. You can google him, too - his research got a lot of publicity. It's WELL proven that low serotonin does not cause depression. Japan has a new antidepressant that LOWERS serotonin, in fact (probably also a placebo drug).

      so . . .how come you don't get better? because the meds don't work very well, if at ALL, in the long term, and the side effects are as bad as the original problem, or worse, if you look at antipsychotics.

      I think you should look at if you are taking any meds that actually CAUSE anxiety, and some of it can be withdrawal from other meds. I'll give you my generic anxiety advice, too.

      Generic anxiety tips (print them out):

      Try turning the heat up in the house or dressing more warmly. It is hard to feel anxiety when you are too warm Hot baths work, and at work/school, you can try running hot water over your hands.

      Caffeine, cold remedies, antidepressants, stimulants like Adderall & other drugs can cause anxiety. Birth control, blood pressure, acne, sleeping pills, antipsychotics & others can cause depression.

      Try meditation tapes like progressive muscle relaxation or guided imagery. Try The Anxiety and Phobia Workbook (library?) There are guided imageries in there, you could make a recording or get a friend to do it. Free 15 minute guided imagery download at healthjourneys.com.

      Go out with friends, and if you don't have any, find a club to join and MAKE yourself go until you look forward to it. Laughing helps reduce anxiety.

      Exercise at least 1/2 hour a day, and anytime you feel really anxious or depressed -research shows it is effective for most people.

      "Sleep hygiene" tips: Go to bed and get up about the same time each day, even weekends. Don't use your bedroom to watch TV and read and use the computer -just use the room as a bedroom. Don't do stuff that pumps you up right before bed, like exercising and using the computer. Wind down, instead - take a bath ? The light from the computer screen or TV wakes you up if you use them right before bed. Bluish light is the big offender try using old- fashioned incandescent bulbs right before bedtime. Make the bedroom dark, even cover up the clock display. Use a noise generator (makes wave sounds etc.) to cover up disturbing sounds. Try soundsleeping.com for free relaxing sounds downloads. Avoid caffeine in afternoon and evening.

      Put colorful, happy things around the house, and let the sun in. Make a list of things that make you happy. Part of my list: Bread fresh from the oven, fireworks popping on a warm summer evening, the crisp sound of a saltine cracker breaking, fresh sheets on the bed, etc. Read that list when you are down. I also use comforting scents, like Jergen's lotion, vanilla or cloves.

      Work on time management if overwhelmed. Cut back on other responsibilities temporarily so you can spend more time with friends and family. ASK for help. If there are people or situations that stress you , identify them and reduce them as much as possible.

      Learn to breathe: Put your hand on your belly. Now breathe deep, and feel your belly move up & down. That is the right way to breathe. You are probably breathing up in your chest area, instead, and that makes you more anxious. Now breathe slowly. Do a mantra in your head innnnnn ouuuuut innnnnn ouuuuut while slowly breathing. Focus on whatever 2 words you want as you breathe slowly.

      Are you catastrophising, always thinking of the WORST thing that could happen? Try to catch yourself doing this, then change your thinking to, what is the MOST LIKELY thing to happen hardly ever is the worst going to happen.

      For phobia issues, full blown panic can only last an hour or so after that, you run out of adrenaline & start to calm down. So some fears, if you can ride them out & tolerate the fear for that hour or so, you will conquer the phobia.

      Try free computerized Cognitive Behavioral Therapy at moodgym.anu.edu.au. Some have found the Lucinda Bassett program effective for long term reduction of anxiety. It's about 0, but I guess it's often available for much less on Ebay. (You need to be sure to get the workbooks as well as the tapes). There are anxiety workbooks at Amazon, also, by other authors, for much less, and again, check out the library collection. **You have to work thru the program that you choose nobody else can fix you you must fix yourself, with tools that are taught to you.**

      If things don't improve after practicing many of these things, you probably need professional help from a therapist.

      All the best!!

      PS it's ok to email me if you want to chat more. I have also done so much reading on mental health. I write kinda folksy so maybe you can't tell :-)

  17. QUESTION:
    Can you answer this important question?
    95% sentenced for a felony pleaded guilty
    The remaining 5% went to jury.
    So how many is 5%?
    Meaning out of all these %%
    How many actually have a court date?
    If 95% plea bargain,that cant leave to many trials?
    And if there are hardly any trials?
    How does that actually say we have a justice system? To me
    the plea alone is unconstitutional.
    But this is the reason I dont get paid to think!
    I am just very curious if people are giving away all their rights like that?
    I just find that wrong and
    really sad .

    • ANSWER:
      I sat on a grand jury that indicted over 1000 people over the course of 3 months. (That is typical where I live.) The courthouse was always very, very busy. All of those cases were felony cases, except for those involving official misconduct, officer-involved shootings, or vehicular homocides (the exceptions were a small percentage of what we heard). So, in a 3 month period, that would be 50 felony criminal trials if only 5% went to trial. Since most of those lasted several days, there were multiple courts holding trials, and all of them were very busy!

      I couldn't tell you what percentage of trials ended in acquittal and which in conviction. I do know that at the federal level, 86% of all cases end in guilty pleas.

      You need to understand that most of these cases (at least the ones I saw) were "open and shut". A typical case would be somebody hanging around a convenience store, and asked to leave by the management. The person wouldn't leave, the police would be called, and the person would take off running as soon as he saw the police. The police would see him thow something away as he ran. One officer would arrest the man, the other officer would pick up the object...it was a little packet of drugs. What would happen if he went to trial? The drugs would be in evidence. Two cops would testify that he ran as soon as he saw them, and tossed the little packet of drugs that was in evidence as he ran. One of those cops would testify that he stopped to pick up the packet, and the packet that's in evidence is the same packet he picked up. A lab guy would testify that he tested the packet and found that it contained drugs.

      What would be the point in going to trial on a case like that? It would only waste the jury's time. The judge would not be amused and would give the defendant a harsher sentence than his lawyer could wrangle in a deal with the DA. And that case was very, very, typical...every day, we'd see dozens of cases like that.

      There was the guy who was caught with a generator stolen from a construction site in his truck. He said two other guys said it was theirs, and that he thought it was legit when he gave them a lift to the site and let them load it in his truck. What time did he swing by the construction site so they could load up the generator? 3:00 am. Did he have any prior convictions? Yes. What for? Grand theft. Did he know the two other guys? No, they were strangers. Who on earth would have a felony theft conviction on their record, pick up two strangers and take them to a construction site to load up a generator at 3:00 in the morning, and not know that SOMETHING was going on?

      There was the guy accused of breaking into a store after hours and stealing cigarettes by the case. He gave a fire marshall permission to watch a video tape that he kept in a storage shed behind the house. What was on the video tape? Video of him breaking into the store at night, and emerging a few minutes later with his arms full of cigarettes.

      How about the guy accused of robbery? Someone called in a description of the guy and his clothes, and said he was walking around the neighborhood. Police started driving through the neighborhood, and found someone who matched the description. They asked him to come over to the car, they wanted to talk to him. What was the first words out of his mouth? "Oh, these aren't my clothes. I changed clothes with my cousin a few minutes ago...he's the guy you want." Nobody said anything, or even asked him a queston...he just walked up to the car and said that. Oddly, he couldn't identify the cousin...

      Those were TYPICAL. Over and over and over again, it was staggering just how dumb and guilty most of these people were.

      Undoubtedly, some people give up their rights without knowing what they are really doing. There are innocent people in jail and prison.

      But most of the people who plead , plead because they are so G-U-I-L-T-Y, and it's the best way to get a lighter punishment.

  18. QUESTION:
    my tinnitus just when uncontrollably through my ear?
    i have had problems with my ear making whistling sounds when sound is present and hissing the ear doctor did a number of test but hearing is fine a few minutes ago i was watching a video and my ear just rang crazy im so much more depressed now even with sound distorting my hearing im only 17

    • ANSWER:
      I've been using the Tinnitus Tamer which is a software tone generator to try to get rid of it. I've been researching Tinnitus for 4 months now and in a nutshell, when some of the nerves in the inner ear are deadened in some way due to noise, drugs, etc. the neurons that they communicate with in the brain never receive a signal to respond in a normal way. Instead the neurons fire spontaneously causing tinnitus.
      I ve been using the Tinnitus Tamer for a week now and it has helped quite a bit. They typically recommend using it for a month if needed.

      I had a hearing test as well by the ear doctor but the test only goes to 8000 Hz or so. I passed it since it never matched my Tinnitus frequency which is about 11,000 Hz.

      You need to:
      1) Find the tinnitus frequency you're hearing by either using the Tinnitus Tamer or any tinnitus sound generator found on google.
      2) Use the Tinnitus Tamer over a period of at least a week or longer to continually match (as much as
      possible) the tone or white noise that you're hearing so nearby inner ear nerves close to the dead nerve respond and transmit that tone to healthy neurons. That response eventually drops the spontaneous firing of the bad neuron. The Tinnitus tamer gives you the ability to set it for sine wave, white noise, or frequency sweep for low, mid or high band sound range. You can also set it for a wide variety of other tone settings controlling duration, number of tone repetitions,etc. Set the tamer to match your tinnitus sound as much as possible.

      The Tinnitus Tamer is free for 14 days. I paid the dollar license so I can use it all the time after that.

  19. QUESTION:
    Are there any remedies to stop my husband's excessive sweating?
    Me and my husband are 22, and we have been together for six years, he has always had a problem with sweating so bad that it just literly runs and drips off him-this is happening all over his body and it doesn't take much to get it going (like 75% weather or spicy food, sometimes just doing the dishes he breaks a sweat) He is in good shape and all around a healthy guy (he is army active duty so he has to be!) anyway, it is really starting to take a toll on him, he gets so frustrated from it dripping in his eyes at work, and is so exhausted in the evening...everything i have found or looked up has to do with excessive sweating just in certian parts of the body, does anyone know what this could be or what we could do to help it?

    • ANSWER:
      Sweating is a natural phaenomenon necessary for the regulation of an individual's body-temperature. The secretion of sweat is mediated by a portion of our vegetative nervous system (the Sympathetic Nervous System). In some people (approximately 1% of the population), this system is working at a very high activity level, far higher than needed to keep a constant temperature. This condition is referred to as hyperhidrosis.

      Causes:
      1. Underlying diseases/illness:
      * Hyperthyroidism or similar endocrine diseases
      * Endocrine treatment for prostatic cancer or other types of malignant disease
      * Severe psychiatric disorders
      * Obesity
      * Menopause
      2. Hyperhidrosis without known cause (=primary or essential hyperhidrosis)
      This is a far more frequent condition, generally, localized in one or several locations of the body (most often hands, feet, armpits or a combination of them). It usually starts during childhood or adolescence and persists all life. Nervousness and anxiety can elicit or aggravate sweating, but psychological/psichiatric disturbances are only rarely the cause of the disorder.

      Treatment:
      In secondary hyperhidrosis, the underlying condition should be treated first. Patints on hormonal therapy for prostatic cancer (castration, LHRH-analoges) with disturbing sweat attacks can get relief by the administration of antiestrogens (ciproterone acetate).

      In patients with primary hyperhidrosis or for symptomatic treatment of heavy sweating in patients with secondary hyperhidrosis, not treatable otherwise, the following methods have been adopted. In psychiatric patients with hyperhidrosis, successful treatment this symptom often reduces the tendency towards emotional distress.
      ANTIPERSPIRANTS

      Usually recommended as the first therapeutic measure. The most effective agent appears to be alluminum chloride (20-25%) in 70-90% alcohol, applied in the evening 2-3 times/week. Generally, this treatment is sufficient in cases with light to moderate hyperhidrosis but has to repeated regularly.

      IONTOPHORESIS

      Can be tried if antiperspirants have not lead to the desired result. This method consists in applying low intensity electric current (15-18 mA), supplied by a D/C generator, to the palms and/or soles immersed in an electrolyte solution. The procedure has to be repeated regularly, initially in 20' sessions several times/week, gradually stretching out the interval between treatments to 1-2 weeks. The results vary: many patients, suffering from light or moderate hyperhiderosis, are happy with the method, some may consider it too time-consuming or inefficient, and comparably expensive. It is difficult to apply in axillary, and impossible to use in diffuse hyperhidrosis of the face or the trunk/thigh region.

      Equipment, specifically designed for the treatment of hyperhidrosis at home or in the physician's office, is commercially available from different suppliers.

      DRUGS

      There are no specific drugs available against profuse sweating. Psychotropic (mostly sedative) and/or anticholinergic drugs are often tested but show usually too many side-effects before any noticeable result can be achieved. Hence, they are, as a rule, not recommended. In those few cases who suffer from profuse sweating on the trunk (but not the extremities), a low dose of anticholinergic agent can slightly alleviate the symptoms without rendering life unsupportable from side-effects (dry mouth, accomodation difficulties of the eyes, etc), but a dosage necessary to normalize the amount of sweating will rarely be tolerated.

      BOTULINUM TOXIN

      A family of toxins produced by a bacteria known as Clostridium botulinum. This toxin is one of the most lethal poisons known, interfering with the effect of the transmitter substance acethylcholine at the synapses (the contact point of a nerve ending with another nerve cell or a muscle) and leading to progressive paralysis of all muscles in the body, including the respiratory muscles. In extremely low doses, botulinus toxin has been adopted in cases with localized muscle hyperactivity (lid spasms, torticollis, etc), resulting in a reduction in transmitting impulses to the muscle. Initial reports have been published regarding the use of botulinum toxin in hyperhidrosis. It seems to work adequately in axillary hyperhidrosis, lasting for 6-12 months depending on the dosage (0.5-1.0 Units/cm2;). A drawback are the costs of this treatment which has to be repeated at regular intervals, but the side-effects seem to be negligible if dosages are kept low.

      SURGERY

      * Excision of the axillary sweat glands

      Patients with axillary hyperhidrosis who are unresponsive to medical therapy can be effectively treated by excision of the axillary sweat glands. If sweating extends beyond the hairy portion of the axilla, several skin incisions may be needed, sometimes resulting in formation of hypertrophic and/or constrictive scars.

      * Sympathectomy

      - The principle of sympathectomy is to interrupt the nerve tracks and nodes (ganglia) which transmit the signals to the sweat glands. Basically, this can be achieved for all locations in the body, but only the nerve nodes responsible for the sweat glands of the palms and the face are accessible without the need for a major surgical procedure. Today, the treatment of choice for moderate to severe palmar and facial hyperhidrosis (but also axillary, especially if combined with palmar sweating), consists in a surgical procedure known as Endoscopic Thoracic Sympathectomy. This minimal-invasive endoscopic technique has been developed in recent years in a few hospitals in Europe, superseeding Conventional Thoracic Sympathectomy, a very traumatic procedure performed in the past. The endoscopic technique is very safe, if performed by a surgeon experienced in this type of procedure, and leads to definitive cure in nearly 100% of patients, leaving only a minimal scar in the armpit.

      - Individuals with combined hyperhidrosis of the palms and soles have a good chance to improve the sweating of their feet after an operation aiming to suppress sweating of the hands. Isolated plantar hyperhidrosis can, however, only cured by Lumbar Sympathectomy, an open abdominal procedure.

      - Diffuse hyperhidrosis of the trunk or general sweating of the whole body cannot be treated by surgery.

      OTHER TREATMENT OPTIONS

      * "Alternative Medicine"

      In the experience of the author, many patients, disappointed by the treatment offered by their doctors, have tried different methods of alternative therapy including homoeopathy, massage, acupuncture and phytotherapeutic drugs, in almost all cases without noticeable improvement.

      * Hypnosis

      There are no systematic studies on this method. Few patiens have tried it, reporting poor results on palmar hyperhidrosis.

      * Psychotherapy

      Very limited effect in the absolut majority of patients. Psychological problems are in most cases a consequence of hyperhidrosis, not the cause. Hence, psychiatric or psychopharmacologic therapy cannot cure this disorder, at most it may help the patient to accept living with the problem.

  20. QUESTION:
    what is it I tends to lose thing and forget thing quickly?
    i do have epilepsy and taking meds for it: Zonegran, and Lamictal

    • ANSWER:
      I'm not familiar with zonegran, but epilepsy drugs can affect memory - for me, lamictal screwed up my ability to recall words. i just couldn't access my vocabulary, so I'd have to explain things roundabout a lot.

      also, nowadays people multitask all the time, and lots or research, if not ALL research, shows that people are not very good at this - performance at each task goes down dramatically. so maybe you are not able to pay attention to begin with, and never form the short term memories you need to have to put something into long term memory. Try turning off the cell phone and focus on one task at a time. i really think texting - those CONSTANT interruptions - are messing with people's memories. Do one thing at a time! Also, are you getting about 8 hours of good, restful sleep? Sleeping only 6 hours a night for a few days is proven to reduce people's functioning to the level of a drunk person, but the folks involved have zero insight into their performance drop - but cognitive testing shows this result. If barking dogs and jet planes are interrupting your sleep at night, run a fan at night to cover up the noise, or get some kind of a noise generator or play a CD with ocean waves or the like at night. If you are very overweight and a snorer, sleep apnea could be screwing up your sleep. the medications could be causing sleep problems, also.

      so there are some things to look into, to track down the source of your trouble. try googling memory and see if you can find some other possible culprits.

      One way that helps me remember things is to always form an association - if I meet someone new, and her name is emily, I think of emily post, and ettiquette, and imagine silverware place settings at a table and all the rules for that, in a picture, so I can remember "emily." Or the other day, I put down a novel and didn't want to fold over the page corner and didn't have a book mark, so I remembered 76 by singing "76 trombones in the big parade. . ." to myself, so now I had associated the number with music, another form of memory, and here I am, days later, I still remember page 76. I have serious memory problems from bipolar disorder, and this method can be used maybe half the time - any type of memory where you can figure out an association with OTHER kinds of memory.

  21. QUESTION:
    which is more sedating trazedone or seroquel?
    Trazedone only helped me sleep for a couple of nights and then stopped working, is that how it's with seroquel? Has anyone been taking it for a while and gets a lot of sleep on it. I've had a lot of anxiety for the past six months. I've tried everything for sleep and nothing seems to give me more then five hours. And some of them like trazedone, klonopin, ect stop working pretty fast. Just curious if seroquel is also this way. Any advice would be helpful. Thanks

    • ANSWER:
      Seroquel is an antipsychotic drug with serious health risks - avoid it for your purpose. It is too dangerous a drug to be used for anything but severe mental illness.

      Counseling is more effective for sleep than sleep meds are. It's proven that sleep meds help only fora week or two at most, but when you get hooked on them, you get rebound insomnia when you try to stop them (even though they are no longer helping). Based on what I've read at sleep disorder websites, you're going down the wrong road, looking for meds to help you sleep. I'll give you my sleep tips, compiled from a lot of reading.

      Google "sleep hygiene"

      Here are my sleep tips:

      Go to bed and get up at the same time every day, even weekends.

      Do only boring things that last hour before bed. no exercise, no computer or TV time. Avoid bright lights (the TV and computer screen light wakes you up too). Blue light is the big offender if you read, use an old-fashioned 60W incandescent light bulb. It has more red & yellow light, and less blue light, than a fluorescent bulb.

      Make sure your bedroom is totally dark, including covering up that digital clock and shutting the drapes/blinds/shades.

      Exercising during the day will tire you out so you sleep well later.

      Avoid caffeine. A morning cup of coffee is OK, but nothing after 1 PM or so. Some meds like cold remedies (Sudafed, etc.) can ramp you up, too, look for the "agitation in children" label-some adults get trouble too,

      Try meditation like progressive muscle relaxation or guided imagery. It reduces stress. See The Anxiety & Phobia Workbook by Edmund Bourne for examples. There is a free 15 minute guided imagery download at healthjourneys.com. Try a noise generator or CD of ocean waves or soft music to sleep if you live in the rackety city. Get some MP3 downloads at soundsleeping.com

      Don't use your bedroom for anything but sleep (or sex, if you are an adult). No computer, no TV, no reading in bed.
      If you are worrying about what you have to do the next day, then get up and write down a list of what to do, then go back to bed with your mind more at ease.

      If these things don't work after a month or so, you may have depression interfering with your sleep, and you should screen yourself for that. there are online depression screening tests. Or there could be something else medically wrong. Don't take Ambien, Lunesta, etc. they are addictive and only work a week or so, then you're hooked and they aren't really helping anymore. (But you will get rebound insomnia if you quit).

      Good luck! Google this topic and you will find some things I'm sure I forgot.

  22. QUESTION:
    ambien cr helps improve your sleep?
    i was just wondering if ambien cr disrupts normal sleep cycles. it says its safer than (ex: xanax,valium, etc) in reserving REM sleep. is this true? it has no eefect on any stages of sleep and if so why?

    • ANSWER:
      Rather than try a drug, try these non-medication sleep tips. medicines only help for a few days or a couple weeks, after that, patients will swear the meds are still helping, but sleep studies show otherwise. What they are getting is rebound insomnia. Sleep meds can cause memory problems, and a certain percentage of people freak out & get aggressive on them (happened to me) and that information is now, finally, on the warning label. Benzos are the same (ativan, xanax, etc).

      Google "sleep hygeine"

      Here are my sleep tips:

      Go to bed and get up at the same time every day, even weekends.

      Do only boring things that last hour before bed. no exercise, no computer or TV time. Avoid bright lights (the TV and computer screen light wakes you up too).

      Make sure your bedroom is totally dark, including covering up that digital clock and shutting the drapes/blinds/shades.

      Exercising during the day will tire you out so you sleep well later.

      Avoid caffeine. A morning cup of coffee is OK, but nothing after 1 PM or so. Some meds like cold remedies (Sudafed, etc.) can ramp you up, too, look for the "agitation in children" label-some adults get trouble too,

      Try meditation like progressive muscle relaxation or guided imagery. It reduces stress. See The Anxiety & Phobia Workbook by Edmund Bourne for examples. There is a free 15 minute guided imagery download at healthjourneys.com. Try a noise generator or CD of ocean waves or soft music to sleep if you live in the rackety city. Get some MP3 downloads at soundsleeping.com

      Don't use your bedroom for anything but sleep (or sex, if you are an adult). No computer, no TV, no reading in bed.
      If you are worrying about what you have to do the next day, then get up and write down a list of what to do, then go back to bed with your mind more at ease.

      If these things don't work after a month or so, you may have depression interfering with your sleep, and you should screen yourself for that. there are online depression screening tests. Or there could be something else medically wrong. Don't take Ambien, Lunesta, etc. they are addictive and only work a week or so, then you're hooked and they aren't really helping anymore. (But you will get rebound insomnia if you quit).

      Good luck! Google this topic and you will find some things I'm sure I forgot.

  23. QUESTION:
    Has a cure for Tuberculosis ever been found?
    I was watching some kind of documentary last night that was talking about how in the early 1800's it was called consumption and later to be named tuberculosis. They did not mention if a cure for it had been found. I'm just curious because I know that nowadays people are still being tested for it. What happens if they come up positive?

    • ANSWER:
      Hi Pamelita

      Here you go.

      Cause
      TB is caused by the bacterium Mycobacterium tuberculosis. TB causes 1,800 deaths per year and 20,000 new cases are reported annually. The primary risk groups are older African-Americans, Hispanics, and Asians. Also at greater risk are people with illnesses that decrease immune function, such as alcoholics, malnutrition, diabetics, and people who are HIV positive.

      Caution: Drugs that act as immune suppressants, such as corticosteroids, can retrigger tuberculosis.

      --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

      Natural Cures

      Note: Prevention is the key to treating and minimizing the spread of TB. This is achieved through vaccinations, such as the Bacille Calmette-Gu rin (BCG) vaccine. Contact tracing using skin testing and x-ray should be performed on relatives and friends of patients with TB as an effective way to detect early cases of TB that have not yet presented with symptoms. Proper diagnosis must include a chest X-ray and skin and sputum tests, and proper treatment must include drugs.

      Diet: Eat an organic, whole foods diet that emphasizes raw vegetables and pure filtered water. Pears, pear juice, and pear sauce can also be helpful, as pears can help hasten healing of the lungs. Other helpful foods include fenugreek and alfalfa sprouts, garlic, pomegranate, and all forms of fermented milk such as yogurt and kefir.

      Herbs: Combine the tinctures of echinacea, elecampane, and mullein in equal parts and take one teaspoon three times a day. This remedy is very effective for soothing the lungs.

      Hydrotherapy: Hydrotherapy is the application of water, ice, steam and hot and cold temperatures to maintain and restore health. Treatments include full body immersion, steam baths, saunas, sitz baths, colonic irrigation and the application of hot and/or cold compresses. Hydrotherapy is effective for treating a wide range of conditions and can easily be used in the home as part of a self-care program. Many Naturopathic Physicians, Physical Therapists and Day Spas use Hydrotherapy as part of treatment. We suggest several at-home hydrotherapy treatments. Please seek the advice of your alternative health care practitioner before undergoing these procedures to make sure they are appropriate for you.
      *Purified water is essential for any hydrotherapy treatment. Remedies for Treating Chlorinated Bath Water offers clear instructions and recommendations.

      Juice Therapy: Combine raw potato juice with an equal amount of carrot juice. Add one teaspoon of olive or almond oil and one teaspoon of honey, and drink three glasses each day.

      Lifestyle: Get plenty of fresh air, rest, light, exercise, and relaxation.

      Nutritional Supplementation: The following supplements are recommended for TB: Vitamin A, beta carotene, vitamin B complex, vitamin C, Vitamin E, multiminerals, essential fatty acids, zinc, garlic capsules, citrus seed extract, lipotropic formula, deglycerinated licorice, and lung glandulars.

      Topical Treatment: Eucalyptus oil packs applied topically over the lungs can help break up congestion and collected fluids.

      Alternative Professional Care
      If your symptoms persist despite the above measures, seek the help of a qualified health professional. The following professional care therapies have all been shown to be useful for treating TB: Acupuncture, Detoxification Therapy, Energy Medicine (Light Beam Generator, Ondamed), Homeopathy, Light Therapy, Magnetic Field Therapy, Oxygen Therapy, Qigong, and Traditional Chinese Medicine

      Best of health to you

    • ANSWER:
      If you talk to any web developer the one thing they'll tell you is the hardest part of their job is getting their web page to work on IE. The code you provided is pretty long to have to go through and finding where IE is having trouble rendering the page. Honestly, your best bet is to find a different code generator and test it on both IE and Mozilla.

  25. QUESTION:
    What would you do?
    So, after people complaining that the government not doing all it needs to, what would you do if you were able to have full control over decisions in these areas:

    The Iraqi War
    Homeland Security
    Immigration
    -- Those already in the U.S.
    -- Border control
    Education
    Economy
    -- Includes gas prices
    Environment
    Other
    -- In case I missed anything

    POLL: Are you voting Democrat, Republican or Other?

    • ANSWER:
      The Iraqi war... get out of the middle east all together we have no need for anything over there

      Homeland Security.. actually make homeland security about the homeland, defend our borders from drug cartels, appoint them to help with natural disasters

      Immigration.. that would be part of homeland security UCAV the borders add motion sensor activated cameras with overlaping visuals meaning two cameras can see the samething at any given point. For those already here either they have to become legal citizens in a legal manner or get out, no flag flies higher than the US flag. I have recently come to a understanding that NAFTA is forcing alot Mexicans across the border to eat, we need to fix NAFTA and stop the construction of the superhighway.

      Education.. more money.. more emphasis on innovation instead of test taking...if we can spend 300 bil a year on war we can put half that towards public education. Stop the no child left behind drama, cause its a front just to leave kids dumb.

      Economy.. i have a radical idea for the economy and i'm sure lots of uneducated Americans wont go for it, but legalize cannibus (marijuana). Cannibus is the number 1 cash crop in America, and thats while its illegal. Normalize cannibus with the same restrictions as alcohol, and allow it to be bought in the same manner. Tax it just like ciggerettes, with it being illegal its not very hard to find, and impossible to control so just mainstream it and the illegal market will dry up. If prohibition didnt work on alcohol why would it work on cannibus.

      This has alot to do with gas prices we can have a car that starts on electricity, and runs on ethanol. Instead of using our food sources as gasoline use the hemp from the cannibus crops, it yields more usable product than corn does anyway. The mayjor hurdle is the legalization of marijuana, the reasons for making it illegal hold no ground with todays scientific knowlege. Hemp is easily reproduced and can grow anywhere.

      Environment.. by reducing our usage of fossil fuels we will lower the mark we leave on the environment, that includes drilling, and burning of fossil fuels. We are smarter than we give ourselves credit for, but we are a greedy people here in America. What other reasons are we not using technology off the shelf like, wind generators, water generators, solar generators. If it was up to me solar panels would be a requirement on everyones home.

      Its long enough im gonna leave it at that

      I'm writing in Ron Paul
      I dont believe in being a democrat or republican im an American.
