Alternative Medicine Wordle

On this Memorial Day (in the US), as we honor those who have fallen in wars and we take a day off from work to reflect on the past and honor their memories, AltMedForYou brings you a lighter topic.


Today’s theme for the WordCount 2012 Blogathon challenges bloggers to create a Wordle “word cloud” image composed of words that define the blog or that are used in the blog. Users choose the layout, colors, fonts, and other design elements that best suit the blog.


Here’s our AltMedForYou Wordle for today:





It’s interesting to see the same image presented vertically, too:



Coming Back to Life…

As the old Big Bands song said, It’s been a long, long time…  But now, at last, Alternative Medicine For You is coming back to life.


To help start the ball rolling, this blog will be participating for the first time ever in the annual WordCount Blogathon (learn more here: The 2012 WordCount Blogathon), starting May 1, 2012.


Tomorrow, you’ll see a report on a September 2011 study on the effectiveness of saw palmetto, a popular herb that many men use to relieve the problem symptoms of enlarged prostate.

During this month, other topics we’ll cover include:

  • Acupuncture for migraine pain


  • Cancer five-year survival rates dramatically higher for cancer survivors treated with integrative medicine


  • Medicinal food research news including olive juice for antioxidants, chili pepper for cholesterol reduction, prunes for osteoporosis


  • Verdict on vitamin E: to take or not to take, that is the question


  • Resveratrol related compound in red wine and grapes wine fights fat


There’s so much news to share, so many important developments in alternative medicine to report, so many good sites to link… it’s going to be a great month!


Stay tuned … and stay healthy!

Welcome to Alt Med For You

If you are interested in real world applications of alternative medicine, this site is for you.

My goal is to share information about a broad range of AltMed products, treatments, and therapies.  Future posts will explain how alternative medicine therapies work, what is worth trying and why – or why not – and what the latest studies say.  I’ll share my favorite sites and references where you can find additional information from reliable sources.  You’ll find a section where you can ask questions and get answers in everyday language.

You’ll find no advertising here and no sponsors’ influence –just information, opinions and personal experiences.

I hope you find this site informative and useful.  And I hope you will add us to your Favorite bookmarked sites and visit often.

Best wishes for good health, naturally,
