Unlocking the Power of Methylene Blue: From Fabric Dye to Neurocognitive Health
Methylene Blue is a blue dye that was created in 1876. It was originally used to dye fabric, but later it was discovered to be useful in scientific laboratories and medicine. As a stain, it can help scientists to visualize bacteria, parasites and fungus under a microscope. Allied troops used it in World War II in the South Pacific to prevent and to treat malaria infections. Non-medical grade methylene blue is used in fish tanks to prevent algae overgrowth and to keep fish tanks clean.

Dealers set up exhibitions in convention centers, meeting halls and hotels. Some o…
Treatment of Frozen Shoulder or Adhesive Capsulitis
Having been in the medical field since 1999, I’ve seen a lot of chronic pain. Pain interferes with activities of daily living and makes it harder to deal with everyday stress.

Most of the time, less invasive methods of treatment are suff…

Be Sure You Are Living In A Mold-Free Home
When someone has been diagnosed with problems related to mold and mycotoxins (toxins from mold), the first step in recovery is to be sure you are living in an environment that is mold-free.
