If you type 'candida treatment' into the blank search box at the top right of the page (to the right of the main menu) and hit the return key it will show you a long list of pages worth reading.

    Sinus headache when it rains

    Maff Hi Rabdawgs, it certainly sounds like sinus headaches triggered by rain would be classed as an 'environmental illness' you've come to the right place!
    Can you give us any more information so that maybe we can help you? Do your sinus problems only occur when it is raining and and have you found anything that helps treat them so far? Also, do you have any other health issues - they may be related even if they don't seem to be at first glance? We see this all the time with allergies and chemical sensitivities etc.

    I am trying to get answers, my son has been suffering from heart problems for years, he is only 45, has undergone three open heart surgeries and they still are not able to figure out what is wrong to help him. They say his heart looks like the heart of an 80 year old man. He fought in dessert storm and I think it could be connected to something he was exposed to. I have to find answers before...

    Maff Sorry to learn of your son's heart condition Karmakid - your instincts may well be correct as the cocktail of chemicals vets were exposed to during Desert Storm have been linked to all manner of illnesses. Have you taken a look at our Gulf War Illness News, Articles and Research papers under the 'Information' tab of the main menu at the top of the site? I think you will find much to help you help your son there. Also our main Gulf War Syndrome information page discusses the possible effects of various exposures in detail - you'll find that under the 'Conditions' menu tab. I hope you find the answers you're looking for.
