Originally introduced into the market as sertraline, this SSRI (selective serotonin re-uptake inhibitor) is a popular anti-depressant. The drug hit a bit of a row in recent history largely because new research suggests that SSRIs have little to no effect on clinical depression, despite the high rates of use among those with health insurance

It’s three thirty in the morning.
First Wife is happily asleep (making the most of a night free of my snoring).
Meanwhile I’m in my dressing gown, tapping away at the computer, unable to sleep. My usual trick of reading and sipping hot milk isn’t working, so I thought I’d put the hours to good use and write about two problems that can cause serious misery in any household…
As you probably know by now, I’m loath to fill my body full of man-made drugs to get rid of pain. This only deadens the symptoms without doing a thing to tackle the root of the problem.
But now there’s a new remedy that could change the way we tackle headaches – especially aggressive sinus headaches – for good.
Next to migraines, sinus headaches really are the baddest of the bunch. They start when the network of passages that link your forehead, cheeks, nose, and eyes become inflamed. This blocks the circulation of mucus air, causing infection.
But as ever, a little digging around can reveal a whole host of natural remedies.Try Barberry (berberis vulgaris), echinacea or eucalyptus, all of which work wonders when it comes pain relief – plus they can enhance your immune system, prevent colds, and reduce sinus inflammation…

It’s horrifying to read the papers these days.
All sorts of terrible illnesses and conditions seem to be on the increase, despite the best efforts of medical technology.
It makes you wonder about the diets and lifestyle of modern man. We’ve got old evils like polio and tuberculosis under control in this country… but new ailments are on the rampage.
According to the organisation ‘Diabetes UK’, there are 1.8 million people with it. But there’s a million more who have it… but don’t even know it! What’s more, it gets more common as you get older. The average age of diagnosis for people with no family history of the illness is 52.
There are two basic types of diabetes…
“Type 1″ develops when the body is unable to produce any insulin. Sufferers need to take insulin to control their blood sugar levels.
“Type 2″ develops when you can’t produce enough insulin, or when the insulin that is produced does not work properly. This is the diabetes which usually appears in people once they pass 40 years old.
But I’ve got some good news for you. Protection from both kinds of diabetes can come in the form of a vitamin that’s not even a real vitamin!
