*******www.balancedhealthtoday****/endosterol.html The choice of treatment will differ for each individual. A person’s age, general health, grade and stage of the cancer, symptoms, lifestyle and personal choice will all be taken into account. It is important that time is taken to consider the treatment options available. Treatment options include: Watchful waiting Prostate cancer is usually slow growing. If no symptoms are present the doctor may recommend no treatment apart from regular PSA blood tests and monitoring. This approach will be most suitable for low stage (T1-2, N0, M0), low grade prostate cancers. Surgery If the prostate cancer is causing a decreased urine flow or a complete blockage, surgery to relieve this may be required before any other treatment is undertaken. Trans urethral resection of the prostate (TURP) is a surgical technique that allows blockages within the prostate gland to be removed. This surgery involves inserting a telescope-like instrument (resectoscope) into the penis and up through the urethra, until it is positioned within the prostate gland. A heated wire is inserted through the resectoscope and is used to remove excess prostate tissue that may be causing a blockage or restriction in urine flow. Hospital stay after a TURP is usually 2-3 days. In cases where the cancer has not spread beyond the prostate, surgical removal of the prostate gland may be recommended. Known as a radical prostatectomy, it involves removal of the entire prostate gland and possibly also the adjacent lymph nodes. It can be performed via an incision in the lower abdomen (retropubic approach) or via an incision in the perineal area (area between the scrotum and anus). A hospital stay of 4 – 5 days following surgery is usual. Urinary incontinence and erectile dysfunction are potential side effects of a radical prostatectomy. Surgical techniques that avoid the nerves responsible for bladder control and sexual function ("nerve sparing" surgery) can help reduce the incidence of these side effects. *******www.balancedhealthtoday****/products.html

*******www.skintag-s**** What is a skin tag? How do you get skin tags? What is a cutaneous skin tag? How to rid of skin tags? What are skin tags from? Removing tags from skin. Often confused with warts and moles, these are questions that have been asked by generations of people for hundreds of years. The answers to these questions are as varied as the people that ask them. Skin tags on dark skin is just as common as skin tags on white skin. The removal of a skin tag or acrochordons as they are called by the specialists who perform the surgical removal of a skin tag. Hangy wart, papillomas or pedunculated neoplasm are other less common names for skin tags. The methods of removing skin tags are also many and varied. There is laser removal of a skin tag (High frequency Light Burning) liquid nitrogen removal of skin tags (sub zero burning), curettage of skin tags (scraping with a sharp spoon shaped tool) skin tag surgery, (cutting it out with a scalpel) tying skin tags with a short piece of twine to cut off the blood supply causing the skin tag to die and fall off. These methods of skin tag removal are used by the medical profession. Other methods such as skin tag removal at home include things like skin tags removed with apple cider vinegar, or skin tag removal cream containing coal tar which is derived from salicylic acid. Glycolic acid removal for skin tags. Herbal treatments to remove skin tags. Kitchen remedies to remove a skin tag. Duct tape skin tag removal. Lemon Juice removes skin tags, also suggested is lime juice. Genital skin tags are vaginal skin tags & anal skin tags. A skin tag on the anus sounds like a not very nice place to find a skin tag but they are more common than you might think! Skin tags on the neck, and around the areas of skin that rub together are the more common places where skin tags can be found on the human body. To have a skin tag of the genitals can be a very upsetting thing to experience, and to seek methods of removing a vaginal skin tag, can leave the patient seeking the services of a genito --urinary specialist causing extreme embarrassment to the person who has them. This also brings in the question how much? The costs of removing skin tags? Are skin tags covered by medical insurance? Will removing a skin tag cause a scar? Child skin tags can have deep seated physiological problems caused by skin tags at an early age. Very few would see their children suffering with skin tags and not seek out the best treatment options for skin tags, regardless of cost. There are various topical skin tag removal cures offered on the internet, by a very large number of websites for skin tags, offering a huge variety of treatment offers for skin tag removal methods. Yet again we have the question of treatment costs for skin tag removal. These sites offer a huge difference in the costs involved in skin tag treatments varying from a few dollars to hundreds of pounds sterling. The people with the skin tags can attend clinics that remove skin tags, either in person or they can have the skin tag cream or skin tag lotions sent to them at their home where they can treat skin tags at home, in private. Skin tag home removal is getting more popular as this generally costs less and a lot of good results for skin tags removal are being reported, with no scars and no after effects.

in order to make it possible for people with terminal illness to undergo organ transplantation procedures and be equipped with healthy, functional organs that are conducive to their survival. The process of organ donation is inclusive of the surgical removal of organs from the body of a human being (dead or alive) or an animal (in case of tissue transplants), and their insertion into the body of another human being, through operation under the effect of anaesthesia. The process is of an incredibly delicate nature and is governed by certain guidelines that need to be more widely known in case there is an absence of awareness regarding the cause amongst people.

*******balancedhealthtoday****/glytamins.html HOW GALLSTONES FORM Stasis or stagnation of bile or incomplete emptying of the gallbladder causes the bile to coagulate or precipitate and clump together into stones. The precurser to stones will be what is termed "sludge".7 A more scientific explanation would be that cholesterol stones are caused by the imbalance of cholesterol to bile salts, too much of one or not enough of the other. There can also be too much bilirubin. So what good is that information? How can we control the too much of any of the above? Useless, I say. The following research makes much more practical sense as far as we are concerned: "Formation of pure cholesterol stones is initiated by an excessive intake of highly purified carbohydrates, a large intake of animal fats and a restricted intake of vegetable fibers. When the protein content of the lithogenic diet was reduced, mixed or combined stones were formed in golden hamsters. These experimentally, dietarily produced gallstones had compositions and fine structures similar to those of human gallstones. Some mentions were made of black stones which were found in the aged golden hamsters fed with lithogenic diets." 4 Translation: Cholesterol stones are formed by eating a diet high in refined foods, especially white foods -- sugar, white bread, pasta, pastries, sodas, etc., lots of meat and by not eating enough vegetables. When the protein content of diet is low and just the sugars (refined carbohydrates) are eaten, the calicified stones began to form along with the softer cholesterol ones. The black stones that are sometimes passed during a flush or found in a surgically-removed gallbladder, seem to be older stones that have been there for a long time. Lithogenic means contributing to the formation of stones. *******balancedhealthtoday****/products.html

Foot Surgery and Ankle Surgery - Podiatrist in NYC Lower Manhattan - Jerry Leff, DPM Dr. Jerry Leff of Maiden Lane Podiatry discusses the symptoms, causes and treatments for Foot Surgery and Ankle Surgery. *******maidenlanepodiatry**** Foot and ankle problems usually fall into the following categories: • Acquired from improper footwear, physical stress, or small mechanical changes within the foot. • Arthritic foot problems, which typically involve one or more joint. • Congenital foot problems, which occur at birth and are generally inherited. • Infectious foot problems, which are caused by bacterial, viral, or fungal disorders. • Neoplastic disorders, usually called tumors, which are the result of abnormal growth of tissue and may be benign or malignant. • Traumatic foot problems, which are associated with foot and ankle injuries. The top foot problems are: • Bunions - misaligned big toe joints that can become swollen and tender, causing the first joint of the big toe to slant outward, and the second joint to angle toward the other toes. Bunions tend to be hereditary, but can be aggravated by shoes that are too narrow in the forefoot and toe. Surgery is frequently performed to correct the problem. • Hammertoe - a condition, usually stemming from muscle imbalance, in which the toe is bent in a claw-like position. It occurs most frequently with the second toe, often when a bunion slants the big toe toward and under it, but any of the other three smaller toes can be affected. Selecting shoes and socks that do not cramp the toes will alleviate aggravation. • Heel spurs - growths of bone on the underside, forepart of the heel bone. Heel spurs occur when the plantar tendon pulls at its attachment to the heel bone. This area of the heel can later calcify to form a spur. With proper warm-up and the use of appropriate athletic shoes, strain to the ligament can be reduced. • Ingrown nails - toenails whose corners or sides dig painfully into the skin. Ingrown toenails are frequently caused by improper nail trimming, but also by shoe pressure, injury, fungus infection, heredity and poor foot structure. Women are much more likely to have ingrown toenails than men. Ingrown nails can be prevented by trimming toenails straight across, selecting proper shoe style and size - not too tapered or shallow - and paying special attention to foot pain. • Neuromas - enlarged benign growths of nerves, most commonly between the third and fourth toes. They are caused by tissue rubbing against and irritating the nerves. Pressure from ill-fitting shoes or abnormal bone structure can also lead to this condition. Treatments include orthoses (shoe inserts) and/or cortisone injections, but surgical removal of the growth is sometimes necessary. • Plantar fasciitis (heel pain) - usually caused by an inflammation on the bottom of the foot. Our practice can evaluate arch pain, and may prescribe customized shoe inserts called orthoses to help alleviate the pain. • Sesamoiditis - inflammation or rupture of the two small bones (sesamoids) under the first metatarsal bones. Proper shoe selection and orthoses can help. • Shin splints - pain to either side of the leg bone, caused by muscle or tendon inflammation. It is commonly related to excessive foot pronation (collapsing arch), but may be related to a muscle imbalance between opposing muscle groups in the leg. Proper stretching and corrective orthoses (shoe inserts) for pronation can help prevent shin splints. • Stress fractures - incomplete cracks in bone caused by overuse. With complete rest, stress fractures heal quickly. Extra padding in shoes helps prevent the condition. Stress fractures left untreated may become complete fractures, which require casting and immobilization. Visit our website: *******maidenlanepodiatry****

Ingrown Toenails - Podiatrist in Fairfield CT, Roslyn and Huntington NY Dr. Pedram Hendizadeh of Associated Podiatrists discusses the symptoms, causes and treatments for Ingrown Toenails. *******www.greatfootcare**** Ingrown toenails, also known as onychocryptosis, is usually caused by trimming toenails too short, particularly on the sides of the big toes. They may also be caused by shoe pressure (from shoes that are too tight or short), injury, fungus infection, heredity, or poor foot structure. Ingrown toenails occur when the corners or sides of the toenail dig into the skin, often causing infection. A common ailment, ingrown toenails can be painful. Ingrown toenails start out hard, swollen, and tender. Left untreated, they may become sore, red, and infected and the skin may start to grow over the ingrown toenail. In most cases, treating ingrown toenails is simple: soak the foot in warm, soapy water several times each day. Avoid wearing tight shoes or socks. Antibiotics are sometimes prescribed if an infection is present. Note: Please consult your physician before taking any medications. In severe cases, if an acute infection occurs, surgical removal of part of the ingrown toenail may be needed. Known as partial nail plate avulsion, the procedure involves injecting the toe with an anesthetic and cutting out the ingrown part of the toenail. Ingrown toenails can be prevented by: • Trimming toenails straight across with no rounded corners. • Ensuring that shoes and socks are not too tight. • Keeping feet clean at all times.

Neuromas are caused by tissue rubbing against and irritating the nerves. Pressure from ill-fitting shoes or abnormal bone structure can also lead to this condition. Depending on the severity, treatments may include orthotics (shoe inserts), cortisone injections, and, in extreme cases, surgical removal of the growth. • Plantar Fasciitis—an inflammation on the bottom of the foot that leads to heel and/or arch pain. A variety of foot injuries or improper foot mechanics can lead to plantar fasciitis. Treatments range from icing and foot exercises to the prescription of custom orthotics to correct the foot position and help alleviate pain. • Sesamoiditis—an inflammation or rupture of the two small bones (known as sesamoids) under the first metatarsal bone. Proper shoe selection and orthotics can help. • Shin Splints—pain on either side of the leg bone caused by muscle or tendon inflammation. Shin splints are related to excessive foot pronation, but also may be related to a muscle imbalance between opposing muscle groups in the leg. Proper stretching before and after exercise and corrective orthotics for pronation can help prevent shin splints. • Stress Fractures—incomplete cracks in bone caused by overuse.
