1000 A.D. - That root is heathen, say this prayer.
1850 A.D. - That prayer is superstition, drink this potion.
1940 A.D. - That potion is snake oil, swallow this pill.
1985 A.D. - That pill is ineffective, take this antibiotic.
2000 A.D. - That antibiotic is artificial. Here, eat this root.

Then There's Head Lice - enter Quit Nits

Around this time each year parents become concerned over the problem of head lice. Head lice are not dangerous and considered not to spread disease but do affect 10 to 12 million children annually generally age 3 to 12. Head lice are almost as common as the common cold and highly contagious easily spreading from child to child through direct contact.

These tiny, wingless parasitic insects live on human hair and feed on blood drawn from the scalp. One can visibly see them and their small yellowish-white oval shaped eggs called nits that are glued at an angle near the base of a hair shaft.

The products to rid a person of hair lice run a gamut of possibilities that can sometimes be harsh, cause allergic attacks or contain toxic chemical pesticides. Recently a product has entered the US market from Australia that seems to bypass these concerns and even leaves hair soft and shiny while eliminating the problem of both lice and nits. More importantly, it is 100% effective and has extremely high customer satisfaction — no returns in the last four years!

It’s called Quit Nits and was developed by Leanne Preston of Margaret River, Australia. The cream uses an Australian herb Quassia Amara 2X HPUS, containing quassin, one of the bitterest substances in the world. This cream effectively kills the lice and eggs in a manner that is gentle and non-toxic. No combing of hair is required and it has a pleasant smell. Unlike pesticide based products, Quit Nits does not contain any ingredient that is suspected of causing health problems for pregnant or nursing mothers. If in doubt then one should consult her doctor.

There is a second part to the kit called Everyday Preventative Spray. This helps prevent lice infestation both prior to exposure as a proactive measure and after infestation to avoid recurrence. What makes this formula special is that a few sprays on the hair and you now have a hidden alarm pheromone that warns lice to stay away from the hair. Pheromones have a history of effectiveness in the insect world. Using them eliminates the need for toxic chemicals and pesticides.

The Complete Lice Kit of Quit Nits contains two tubes of Advance Lice Treatment Cream and one Everyday Preventative Spray. It eliminates head lice and their eggs with the treatment cream and prevent re-infestation with the everyday preventative spray.  Save $2.00 coupon on the kit   Save $1.00 coupon on the spray The coupons state they are not valid for mail order, only for in store purchase.

Questions about Quit Nits:

I have completed the treatment but I can still see live lice in the hair. What should I do?

Sometimes the treatment has not had sufficient contact time with live lice and they appear to move quite slowly. These lice are dying and should be removed with the fingernails.

I can still see eggs attached to the hair the following day. Has the treatment failed?

Not at all, the remaining ‘eggs’ or nits which are visible are either dead or empty shells. Simply remove with the fingernails.

I used Quit Nits treatment but my child came home from school re-infested two days later. Is Quit Nits safe to use again?

Quit Nits does not contain any toxic pesticides so it is safe to use as frequently as required.

The kit does not contain a bedding spray. Why not?

Head lice can only feed on a human host and must feed hourly to remain hydrated. About an hour after being separated from the host they begin to dehydrate and become ill. After 24 hours, they will die. Simply laundering and drying head scarves, hats or pillows is sufficient to kill lice. Using bedding sprays only increases you child’s exposure to pesticides.

If I’m pregnant or breastfeeding can I use your product?

Unlike pesticide based products, Quit Nits products do not contain any ingredient that is suspected of causing health problems for pregnant or nursing mothers. The products should be safe for use except in circumstances where there is a history of allergy to the active ingredients. If in doubt, consult your doctor.

Why should the cap be removed overnight when using the Advance Treatment product?

Although it is important to keep the Advance Treatment wet, it is essential to remove the shower cap from your young children to avoid risk of suffocation while sleeping.

I have used head lice treatments before and the hair was left dry and brittle. Will this happen with Quit Nits?

Quit Nits products will leave the hair soft and shiny just like a regular conditioner. presents Professor Health-- Look for Professor Health every Thursday on page 2 of the San Francisco Examiner

A Good Night's Sleep!

Snoring is a common problem resulting in sleep deprivation harmful to health and adds extra stress on relationships. Usually the cause is a result of the nasal passages being blocked. When this happens breathing occurs through the mouth. As a person sleeps the body relaxes and the soft palate comes into close contact with the uvula causing irregular airflow resulting in a vibrational sound that can be loud, sometimes very loud.

Often snoring is an indication of allergy problems which can be due to mold, bedding materials such as goose down, and dust mites. Snoring can also be an indication of other health problems and often occurs with obesity.

There are two things a person can do to help stop snoring. First is to clear the nasal passageway. Rainbow Light's Supra Clear Sinus and Chest is an effective aid. Two tablets at bedtime are usually sufficient to keep the nasal passages open for the night. Other products such as Vogel's Pollinosan Nasal Spray and Vogel's Dentaforce oral spray give quick relief. The goal is to keep the nasal passages open. A good specific formula is KAL No Snorz. Another complete line of products are called Snore Stop. Some nutrients that can help solve the problem are  MSM and pantothenic acid (B5). Pau'dArco extract is a useful herb if the cause is related to mold reactions. 

SupraClear Sinus & Chest  No Snorz SnoreStop ExtinguishSnoreStop FastTabs   Pollinosan® Nasal Spray  Dentaforce Herbal Mouthspray  Dentaforce Concentrated Herbal MouthwashHere's a suggestion: buy the large Dentaforce and fill the spray bottle for a great savings- same formula.

There is no snoring when the mouth is closed. This brings us to the second important factor. The person must consciously keep one's mouth closed and breathe through the nose. That is what the nose is for. With snoring the mouth is always open and a person can consciously make it a habit to sleep with their mouth closed breathing through their nose. When the nasal passage is open this is usually an easy habit to acquire. If the nasal passage is restricted then snoring is more difficult to change.

With this comic both partners are getting the rest they need. They also took Source Naturals Calcium Night, an excellent formula for calcium and magnesium in a 1:1 ratio aiding necessary nutritional needs of muscles (aiding bladder control)) and nerves (aiding heart and energy) while helping to build strong bones, and getting that important regeneration of the body that comes from sleeping.

Vitamin D and Common Mold Allergies

Vitamin D is again in the news. The reports of its benefits keep increasing as studies seek out its applications in many areas of health. The latest good news is for asthmatics who have allergic responses to common mold. From a cell study published in the Journal of Clinical Investigation:

"We found that adding vitamin D not only substantially reduced the production of the protein driving an allergic response, but it also increased production of the proteins that promote tolerance," said lead researcher Dr Jay Kolls from Louisiana State University Health Sciences Center.

The common mold, called Aspergillus fumigatus, can result in severe complications for not only asthmatics, but also for individuals with cystic fibrosis. The study concluded that vitamin D deficiency is a high risk factor and vitamin D supplementation could be a valuable aid.
