Doing some research for a migraine patient recently, I came across a new article giving some credo to the use of IV magnesium for acute migraine pain. If you’ve ever had a migraine headache, you know how absolutely debilitating the pain and associated symptoms can be. The next time you’re triggered, it would be worth exploring the use of IV magnesium.

Gluta-what? If you're reading the title of this post and have no idea what I’m talking about, you’re not alone. In fact, many of my patients who I regularly inject with glutathione have trouble pronouncing the name - but most know at least one of the benefits of glutathione, it’s the body’s master antioxidant.

The environment in which egg cells are growing during the process of recruitment and development has a major impact on the quality of the egg cell that is ovulated every cycle.

Something interesting happens at the clinic when one of our patients has a baby – more often than you’d think, we hear about babe’s arrival (yay!) and shortly after, life changes so drastically that we don’t often hear from them again for a little while.
