Doctor Touts Ultraviolet Light as Miracle Cure for Some Diseases

 

Summer is here and that means we will get a lot of sunshine. It also means that people will get a lot of warnings about the harmful effects of ultraviolet light (UV) that the sun provides.

“Just like plants, we humans must have ultraviolet light in order to be healthy,” explains Dr. Edward Kondrot, founder of the Healing The Eye & Wellness Center. “Ultraviolet light is absolutely essential to life and if we could bottle and sell it to help cure diseases it could become the biggest selling medication yet. It’s that important to our bodies.”

Can Antibiotics Cure Your Back Pain? Researchers Say "Maybe"!

McLean, VA - June 17, 2013 – New research from the University of Denmark indicates that 20 to 40% of all chronic, lower back pain is caused by bacterial infection and that treating this infection with an extended course of antibiotics can help many patients avoid back surgery.

Said Dr. Gary Kaplan, the founder and director of the Kaplan Center for Integrative Medicine in McLean, Virginia, “As a physician who cares for patients with chronic, low back pain, I am thrilled about this news!  Although surgery is necessary and effective for some patients, far too often we see patients who still suffer from chronic, low back pain even after undergoing surgery.  Learning that a bacterial infection may be the culprit in some of these cases gives us a very promising treatment option to explore.”
