I just saw a post by Regina from 12/2007 about a product called Barley Life that she thinks is making her hair thicker. My hair has started to thin and I'm looking for anything I can find to help!

my wife had breast cancer 5 years ago. she had 8 lymp nodes removed under her left arm . she now has pain under her left arm. she has trouble sleeping. she is under going therpay which includes a series of exersises. this doesn't seem to do much good. the therapist told her that lymp nodes grow back & the nerves grow in different direction & this is what is causing the pain. the doctors aren't much help.

Has anyone tried the raisins soaked in whiskey for arthritis? If so what are the proportions?
My mother-in-law and her friends tried this. It didn't seem to help anyone.

I've read where some get good results from Tresemme' shampoo, but it hasn't done much for me.

I remember reading a letter that someone wrote to youlast year telling you about a shampoo that actually helps grow hair back in women. I am 65 and suddenly I am noticing my hair is getting very thin. Whats the shampoo so I can buy it?

I was unable to find the answer about the other drugs for cholesterol. What do you recommend and is there something in alternative medicine that can work. Somewhere, I read about cinnamon? Was that in your column? And if it was, could you please repeat it--I no longer have the article.

Dr. Gott
Some time ago you mentioned a drink to alleviate joint pain.It was grape juice mixed with liquid pectin. I failed to write down the amount of each item. Please send me the formula so I can perhaps get her off of the pain pills she uses both day and night.(Vicodin) She IS diabetic, has a stent in one kidney and is on kidney dialysis three times weekly.

Hi. I am a 34 year old female, and cancer runs in my family. My Dad died with prostate cancer, and my Mom currently has ovarian cancer. Now, to my question. I my left armpit, I have lumps that come and go. Well, they've came back, and been back since May 1st. This time, it feels like at least 3 of them. I noticed today, that my armpit is now leaking pus and blood. What could this be, or what should I do?

could someone email me when this gets a reply from a dr?
