Coming Back to Life…

By AltMed1-Peggy  

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!

    It was so nice to see your blog on the list of people participating in the blogathon. I’m also interested in alternative medicine, specifically dealing with zootherapy. Maybe I can recruit you as a guest poster for my blog as well? You seem to have a lot of people interested in your work already, though. Just let me know!

    I appreciate that you write about research. That’s something that I want to do, but I feel like I don’t have the guts to do it yet. How do you take a research article and make it digestible for the general public?

    Looking forward to learning more about CAM. And if you want to guest post for me, my blog is your blog. 😉

    Peggy, I am a huge fan of alternative medicine and Dr. Weill. Not huge on medications, and your blog is a great fin for me. So glad you’re participating in the Blogathon this year. I’ll be back.
