Stresstabs with Iron

Multivitamin are a combination of many different vitamins that are normally found in foods and other natural sources.

Iron is normally found in foods like red meat. In the body, iron becomes a part of your hemoglobin (HEEM o glo bin) and myoglobin (MY o glo bin). Hemoglobin carries oxygen through your blood to tissues and organs. Myoglobin helps your muscle cells store oxygen.

Multivitamin and iron are used to provide vitamins and iron that are not taken in through the diet. They are also used to treat iron or vitamin deficiencies caused by illness, pregnancy, poor nutrition, digestive disorders, and many other conditions.

Multivitamin and iron may also be used for other purposes not listed in this medication guide.

What is the most important information I should know about Stresstabs with Iron (multivitamin with iron)?

Never take more than the recommended dose of a multivitamin. Avoid taking any other multivitamin product within 2 hours before or after you take multivitamin with iron.

"5 Things to be Thankful For"

5 Things to be Thankful For

Sometimes we get so busy in this crazy world that we don’t take the time to stop and think about the things we should be thankful for. Life is too short not to be happy, so take some time to sit back and contemplate your blessings. Here are a few things you can think about next time you are getting caught up in your problems.


What makes a family is different for some people, but these are the people you can turn to in your darkest hour who will love and accept you unconditionally. For some, it’s their parents or grandparents, for others, a brother or sister. Perhaps it is someone else who raised you and helped you to become the person you are today. Be thankful for your family and what they have done for you.


Faith is another thing that is in the eye of the beholder. Whatever higher power helps you to get through your day, be thankful for that. Not feeling alone in this world is a comfort that faith helps to provide, and you need to be thankful for this comfort.


It is a wonderful feeling to have people outside of your immediate family that you can talk with and share your innermost feelings with. Having friends is a tremendous blessing that shouldn’t be taken for granted. Show your appreciation for your friends and let them know how much they mean to you.


As the saying goes, “home is where the heart is.” Where is your heart? Having a place to call home is a wonderful thing that should not be taken for granted. Our world is full of people who have nowhere to call home, which is quite unfortunate. Be thankful for the shelter and comfort that having a place to call home provides. Many of us have more than one place we consider “home,” which is all the more reason to be thankful.

Creature Comforts

Again, many times we don’t see just how good we have things. Our modern world provides us with so many things that those who came before us didn’t have. From air conditioning, to automobiles, to cell phones and internet—these are all relatively new things that make our lives easier. Take the time to think about how your life would be different without all of these things and be thankful for the innovation and hard work of so many people to make our lives easier in the modern world.

Trigeminal Neuralgia

10 years of suffering... and finally we knew and we got the right medicine for my father's illness. Thanks to Dr. Floresca.

Trigeminal Neuralgia
I was searching and I found this website. Thank you for posting like this


Imagine having a jab of lightning-like pain shoot through your face when you brush your teeth or put on makeup. Sound excruciating? If you have trigeminal neuralgia, attacks of such pain may occur frequently.

You may initially experience short, mild attacks, but trigeminal neuralgia can progress, causing longer, more frequent bouts of searing pain. These attacks can be spontaneous or provoked by even mild stimulation of your face. Trigeminal neuralgia affects women more often than men, and it's more likely to occur in people who are older than 50.

Because of the variety of treatment options available, having trigeminal neuralgia doesn't necessarily mean you're doomed to a life of pain. Doctors usually can effectively manage trigeminal neuralgia with medications, injections or surgery.


You may have one or more of these symptom patterns with trigeminal neuralgia:

  • Occasional twinges of mild pain
  • Episodes of severe, shooting or jabbing pain that may feel like an electric shock
  • Spontaneous attacks of pain or attacks triggered by things like touching the face, chewing, speaking, and brushing teeth
  • Bouts of pain lasting from a few seconds to several seconds
  • Episodes of several attacks lasting days, weeks, months or longer — some people have periods when they experience no pain
  • Pain in areas supplied by the trigeminal nerve (nerve branches), including the cheek, jaw, teeth, gums, lips, or less often the eye and forehead
  • Pain affecting one side of your face at a time
  • Pain focused in one spot or spread in a wider pattern
  • Attacks becoming more frequent and intense over time


The trigeminal nerve carries sensation from your face to your brain. In trigeminal neuralgia, also called tic douloureux, the nerve's function is disrupted. Usually, the problem is contact between a normal artery or vein and the trigeminal nerve, at the base of your brain. This contact puts pressure on the nerve and causes it to malfunction.

Trigeminal neuralgia can occur as a result of aging, or it can be related to multiple sclerosis or a similar disorder that damages the myelin sheath protecting certain nerves. Less commonly, trigeminal neuralgia can be caused by a tumor compressing the trigeminal nerve. In other cases, a cause cannot be found.

A variety of triggers may set off the pain of trigeminal neuralgia, including:

  • Shaving
  • Stroking your face
  • Eating
  • Drinking
  • Brushing your teeth
  • Talking
  • Putting on makeup
  • Encountering a breeze
  • Smiling

10 Essential Health Tips


I was searching on world wide web and I found this article very interesting and wanna share this to you all. Please read with me..

""10 Essential Health Tips
(The Basics to Practice Every Day)

"He who has health has hope, and he who has hope has everything." -Arabian Proverb

1. Move More
Make it a daily challenge to find ways to move your body.

2. Cut Fat
Avoid the obvious such as fried foods, burgers and other fatty meats (i.e. pork, bacon, ham, salami, ribs and sausage).

3. Quit Smoking
The jury is definitely in on this verdict. Ever since 1960 when the Surgeon General announced that smoking was harmful to your health, Americans have been reducing their use of tobacco products that kill.

4. Reduce Stress
Easier said than done, stress busters come in many forms. Some techniques recommended by experts are to think positive thoughts.

5. Protect Yourself from Pollution
If you can't live in a smog-free environment, at least avoid smoke-filled rooms, high traffic areas, breathing in highway fumes and exercising near busy thoroughfares. Exercise outside when the smog rating is low.

6. Wear Your Seat Belt
Statistics show that seat belts add to longevity and help alleviate potential injuries in car crashes. Thought for the day: Buckle down and buckle up.

7. Floss Your Teeth
Recent studies make a direct connection between longevity and teeth flossing. Nobody knows exactly why. Perhaps it's because people who floss tend to be more health conscious than people who don't? Thought for the day: Floss and be your body's boss.

8. Avoid Excessive Drinking
While recent studies show a glass of wine or one drink a day (two for men) can help protect against heart disease, more than that can cause other health problems such as liver and kidney disease and cancer. Thought for the day: A jug of wine should last a long time.

9. Keep a Positive Mental Outlook
There's a definitive connection between living well and healthfully and having a cheerful outlook on life. Thought for the day: You can't be unhappy when you're smiling or singing.

10. Choose Your Parents Well
The link between genetics and health is a powerful one. But just because one or both of your parents died young in ill health doesn't mean you cannot counteract the genetic pool handed you.
