• Ask The Doctor: Gorham's Disease and Acoustic Neuroma

    My son, who is sixteen, has been diagnosed with Gorham's disease in his right shoulder blade. His shoulder blade broke again yesterday for the third time and his doctor has told us that our only option is intravenous steroid treatments to strengthen that bone. We are very much opposed to these treatments because of the side effects.

  • Cushing's in Pets

    Luckily several natural solutions can help this adrenal disorder. Technically called hyperadrenocorticism, Cushing’s disease causes the adrenal glands to overproduce hormones, particularly corticosteroids, which can cause increased thirst and urination, panting, high blood pressure, and even hair loss.

    My 12-year-old Boston terrier was just diagnosed with Cushing's. Can I do anything natural to manage this disease?
