Acid Reflux Drugs: Over the Counter or Over The Top?

By Dr. Ronald Stram, M.D.

A ground-breaking study made public recently has revealed that common over the counter acid-reflux drugs such as Prilosec and Nexium can be detrimental to users’ health and have potentially fatal side effects.  Petitions have been presented to the U.S. Food & Drug Administration urging law enforcers to place the strongest warning labels possible on these over-used over the counter drugs.

Acupuncture Proven to Reduce Nausea and Vomiting…Again!

By Christopher Reilly, L.AC

The July 2011 issue of the Journal of Anesthesia features an article comparing acupuncture to the anti-emetic drug odansetron for reducing emetic episodes (vomiting) in women having cesarean sections. Odansetron is also known as zofran, and is a very commonly used drug to prevent nausea and vomiting after surgery.  The study followed 450 patients, and found acupuncture to be just as effective as zofran during, and following the surgery.
