Be the Change – Save a Life

On December 28, 2010, in Uncategorized, by Andrea

ABC News is doing a great new series about small things that normal people — people like you and me — can do to enact REAL change in the world.  Not people who have millions upon millions of dollars, or those with IQs of 187 or eidetic memories.  Normal people.  You.  Me.  The elementary school down the street.

So I watched the first show and was thinking about our own little community.

So I walk up on high and step to the edge to see my world below.
And I laugh at myself, as the tears roll down.
Cause it’s the world I know, it’s the world I know.

Promo Code for Labtests

On December 13, 2010, in Tests, by Andrea

WLSVG will get you 15% at – the “Amazon for labs” I mentioned last week.  Take advantage of the deal!

Not really.

Susan Maria posted on her message board about her vitamin this morning.  I’m guessing she isn’t getting the sales she was aiming for and needed to write a commercial for it.  But I feel it’s important to share her words that she has FINALLY provided (we’ve only been asking since the beginning of November..) and lay the science out point by point to either counter or agree with what she says.  She will not answer any questions about the science — will only reference people to the Albion happy science papers — which are nothing but press releases.

The post below can be found (by those not banned, of course, at her message board here.  This is, assuming, unless it gets deleted (which she has a history of doing — to me personally).  I give my word, as much as it is worth, that I am not abridging her post whatsoever, changing her words at all, or changing any intent.  This is her entire post, word for word.  All I am going to do is break it down into sections to discuss the science in points.  That is all.

Need Labtests…

On December 9, 2010, in Tests, by Andrea

… but have a pissy doctor that won’t order the tests that you know you need?

There’s a new alternative.

By going here, you can pick your own tests, pay the Medicare costs (up front, but at the MUCH reduced rate), pay a $9.50 service fee, print out a lab sheet to take to a local LabCorp, and have the results emailed to you and faxed to your doc.  No one knows that YOU chose the labs, that you prepaid, etc.  Additionally, if you submit the labwork after you pay to your insurance, it will most likely be covered assuming labs are covered by your insurance, once meeting your deductible.

Magnesium Diglycinate Absorption

On November 30, 2010, in Minerals, Reviews, by Andrea

Yup.  More damning evidence against Journey.  Oops.  And folks?  This isn’t good.

This comes from a paper about magnesium chelation.

The magnesium chelate used is magnesium diglycinate.  The supporting documentation that Albion uses is a study that compares it to magnesium oxide in patients with ileal resection, mostly due to Crohn’s disease.
