FDA Drug Info Rounds, December 2010: Drug Shortages
It is FDA's policy to help prevent or alleviate shortages, primarily of medically necessary drug products, since these can have significant public health consequences. A drug shortage may involve either an actual or a potential shortage of a drug product. A product is considered to be medically necessary, or a medical necessity, if it is used to treat or prevent a serious disease or medical condition, and there is no other available source of that product or alternative drug or therapy that is judged by medical staff to be an adequate substitute. The FDA website provides information on shortages and limited distribution of medically necessary drugs. It includes information about the specific drug, the reason for the shortage and the manufacturers anticipated date of availability. FDA also posts press releases and other notices of recalls from the firms involved as a service to consumers, the media, and other interested parties. The article "FDA's Role in Responding to Drug Shortages" published in the American Journal of Health Systems Pharmacists (2002 Aug 1;59(15):1423-5), provides additional information. The ASHP guideline describes the contributing factors to drug product shortages and recommends a general process for inventory management in preparation for and working through shortage situations. ASHP Guideline on Managing Drug Shortages. Sign up for an E-mail notification Pharmacists may sign up to receive updates of drug products added to the Current Drug Shortages, and Resolved Drug Shortages lists on the FDA website.

DMT ~ The Best All Natural Drug On The Planet
ONE OF THE BEST ALL NATURAL DRUGS ON THE PLANET? DMT For more Videos like these subscribe to my channel and also visit: http://www.disclose.tv/Dmtshaman/?ref=Dmtshaman Dimethyltryptamine or N,N-Dimethyltryptamine (DMT) is a naturally-occurring tryptamine and psychedelic drug, found not only in many plants, but also in trace amounts in the human body where its natural function is undetermined. Structurally, it is analogous to the neurotransmitter serotonin (5-HT) and other psychedelic tryptamines such as 5-MeO-DMT, bufotenin (5-OH-DMT), and psilocin (4-OH-DMT). DMT is created in small amounts by the human body during normal metabolism by the enzyme tryptamine-N-methyltransferase. Many cultures, indigenous and modern, ingest DMT as a psychedelic in extracted or synthesized forms. Pure DMT at room temperature is a clear or white to yellowish-red crystalline solid. A laboratory synthesis of DMT was first reported in 1931, and it was later found in many plants. Several speculative and yet untested hypotheses suggest that endogenous DMT, produced in the human brain, is involved in certain psychological and neurological states. DMT is naturally produced in small amounts in the brain and other tissues of humans and other mammals. Some believe it plays a role in mediating the visual effects of natural dreaming, and also near-death experiences, religious visions and other mystical states. A biochemical mechanism for this was proposed by the medical researcher J. C. Callaway, who suggested in 1988 that DMT might be connected with visual dream phenomena, where brain DMT levels are periodically elevated to induce visual dreaming and possibly other natural states of mind. A new hypothesis proposed is that in addition to being involved in altered states of consciousness, endogenous DMT may be involved in the creation of normal waking states of consciousness. It is proposed that DMT and other endogenous hallucinogens mediate their neurological abilities by acting as neurotransmitters at a sub class of the trace amine receptors; a group of receptors found in the CNS where DMT and other hallucinogens have been shown to have activity. Wallach further proposes that in this way waking consciousness can be thought of as a controlled psychedelic experience. It is when the control of these systems becomes loosened and their behavior no longer correlates with the external world that the altered states arise. Dr. Rick Strassman, while conducting DMT research in the 1990s at the University of New Mexico, advanced the theory that a massive release of DMT from the pineal gland prior to death or near death was the cause of the near death experience (NDE) phenomenon. Several of his test subjects reported NDE-like audio or visual hallucinations. His explanation for this was the possible lack of panic involved in the clinical setting and possible dosage differences between those administered and those encountered in actual NDE cases. Several subjects also reported contact with 'other beings', alien like, insectoid or reptilian in nature, in highly advanced technological environments where the subjects were 'carried', 'probed', 'tested', 'manipulated', 'dismembered', 'taught', 'loved' and even 'raped' by these 'beings'. Writers on DMT include Terence McKenna, Jeremy Narby and Graham Hancock. In his book Supernatural McKenna writes of his DMT experiences with less skepticism than most and often presume that the drug's "intoxication" is indicative of realms of consciousness equally as valid as waking-life if not more so. In his writings and speeches, he recounts encounters with entities he sometimes describes as "Self-Transforming Machine Elves" among equally colorful phrases. McKenna believed DMT to be a tool that could be used to enhance communication and allow for communication with other-worldly entities. Other users report visitation from external intelligences attempting to impart information. These Machine Elf experiences are said to be shared by many DMT users. From a researcher's perspective, perhaps best known is Dr. Rick Strassman's DMT: The Spirit Molecule, Dr. Strassman speculated that DMT is made in the pineal gland, largely because the necessary constituents (see methyltransferases) needed to make DMT are found in the pineal gland in substantially greater concentrations than any other part of the body.

Treat and Stop Acid Reflux with Natural Medicine - Dr. Patti Kim, ND
Low stomach acid causes most Acid Reflux symptoms, according to Dr. Patti Kim, ND (Naturopathic Doctor). In this video interview, Dr. Kim discusses: 1) The symptoms of Acid Reflux, including burning, heat or pain sensation in chest and/or throat area, regurgitation, belching due to the sphincter being weakened, feeling full sooner than normal, chronic sore throats or laryngitis. 2) The conventional treatment for Acid Reflux, including calcium carbonate antacids such as Tums, Maalox, Mylanta; or proton pump inhibitors such as Prilosec, Nexium, Prevacid and Protonix. 3) That neutralizing stomach acid or stopping stomach acid production with artificial drugs can be harmful to the body because of the numerous side effects associated with the drugs, and that this type of conventional symptom treatment does not treat the root cause. 4) That stress is a primary cause of lowering stomach acid. 5) That stomach acids leak into the esophagus because of a weak sphincter (often due to stress). 6) Factors that influence acid reflux: poor nutrition, foods that cause inflammation, eating spicy foods and alcohol. 7) Natural Medicine treatment of acid reflux includes: stomach pH may be tested; goal is to raise stomach acid (or lower if too high) through dietary changes, exercise, herbs, nutritional supplements, digestive supplements and Homeopathic remedies. 8) Especially important is removal of processed foods and eating whole, organic foods. 9) Dr. Kim has a great success rate of stopping acid reflux: most of her patients are symptom free within a week.

FDA Drug Info Rounds, May 2010: Single-ingredient Oral Colchicine
Although unapproved colchicine has been used for many years, FDA approved the first single-ingredient oral colchicine product, Colcrys, in July 2009 for the treatment of familial Mediterranean fever (FMF) and acute gout flares; in October 2009 Colcrys was approved for prophylaxis of gout flares (chronic gout). The approved prescribing information for Colcrys includes a new drug interaction warning, updated dosing recommendations and a medication guide. Pharmacists are reminded to dispense only FDA approved products. FDA Drug Info Rounds pharmacists discuss the differences between approved and unapproved colchicine products, concerns regarding unapproved single-ingredient oral colchicine, and how patients can offset the increased cost of Colcrys.

FDA Drug Info Rounds, August 2010: Proton Pump Inhibitors (PPIs)
The FDA is revising the prescription and over-the-counter (OTC) labels for proton pump inhibitors to include new safety information about a possible increased risk of fractures of the hip, wrist, and spine with the use of these medications. The new safety information is based on FDA's review of several epidemiological studies. Some studies found that those at greatest risk for these fractures received high doses of proton pump inhibitors or used them for one year or more. The majority of the studies evaluated individuals 50 years of age or older and the increased risk of fracture primarily was observed in this age group. As a precaution, the "Drug Facts" label on the OTC proton pump inhibitors (indicated for 14 days of continuous use) also is being revised to include information about this risk.

FDA Drug Info Rounds, July 2010: Long-Acting Beta-Agonists (LABAs)
Long-Acting Beta-Agonists (LABAs), a class of medications used for the treatment of asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), now have new recommendations in their drug label intended to promote their safe use in the treatment of asthma. The agency required manufacturers to revise their drug labels because of an increased risk of severe exacerbation of asthma symptoms, leading to hospitalizations, in pediatric and adult patients, as well as death in some patients using LABAs for the treatment of asthma. FDA believes that when LABAs are used according to the recommendations outlined above and in the approved drug labels, the benefits of LABAs in improving asthma symptoms outweigh their risks of increasing severe asthma exacerbations and deaths from asthma.

FDA Drug Info Rounds, September 2010: Evamist
Evamist (estradiol), an estrogen hormone, is used in women to reduce hot flashes during menopause. It is sprayed on the skin on the inside of the forearm between the elbow and the wrist. Evamist was approved by FDA in July 2007. Since then through June 2010, FDA has received 8 postmarketing cases of unintended exposure of children to Evamist. The reported adverse effects were consistent with premature puberty in females, including development of breast buds and breast mass. For males, reported adverse effects were consistent with gynecomastia. The signs and symptoms appeared several weeks to months after the adult patient initiated therapy with Evamist. Some cases reported symptom resolution after the Evamist user discontinued the drug or used preventive measures to avoid unintentional exposure of children to the drug. FDA is currently reviewing these reported adverse events and is working with the company to identify any factors that may contribute to unintended exposure. FDA and the company are also evaluating ways to minimize the risk.

The Danger of Counterfeit Drugs (Second of Two Parts)
This is the VOA Special English Development Report, from http://voaspecialenglish.com We talked last week about counterfeit medicines and how the problem is especially bad in Africa, Asia and Latin America. The World Health Organization says up to thirty percent of the medicine sold in many developing countries is not real. It also estimates that up to fifty percent of the medicine sold on the Internet is counterfeit. That can put people at risk even in wealthy countries that represent only a small part of the counterfeit drug market. Today we look at what is being done to fight counterfeit drugs. Several companies are developing ways to make counterfeits easier to identify. And there are existing methods, like a machine that can quickly identify chemicals in pills to confirm if the pills are real. Other ideas include things like special tracking codes for drug packages. People could send a text message with the code and get a message back confirming that what they bought is listed in a database. Some drug makers and other companies put three-dimensional images called holograms on their products as a security device. Other anti-counterfeit efforts include the use of radio frequency identification tags. Many companies use these electronic tags to follow products through the supply chain from the manufacturer. The American Food and Drug Administration says RFID tags act like an electronic safety net to make it easier to catch counterfeits. Last July, the Food and Drug Administration advised manufacturers to add what are called physical chemical identifiers to their medicines. These are special chemicals, colorings or tastes that counterfeiters could not easily copy. Bryan Liang is with the Partnership for Safe Medicines, an organization in the United States. He says the Internet is not only a place where people can get tricked into buying counterfeit drugs. It is also a place where counterfeiters can find all the materials they need to make them. He says the most important members of the "counterfeit detection team" are the patients themselves. He says raids on counterfeiters are often the result of information from people who bought fake medicines. Bryan Liang says people who know their drugs and the effects of their drugs are the best security against fakes. And that's the VOA Special English Development Report. You can find last week's report on counterfeit drugs at voaspecialenglish.com. (Adapted from a radio program broadcast 01Mar2010)

On The Edge
This project was a Commonwealth Government Initiative, Resilience Education and Drug Information (REDI). On the Edge is a set of classroom resources for students in upper secondary schools that explore issues of drug use, in particular around alcohol, ecstasy and cannabis. It also emphasises the development of resilience and transition skills from school to adulthood. Skills addressed include: decision-making, critical literacy, evaluation and judgment, finding information, being assertive, forming and maintaining relationships, independent thinking, developing a sense of identity, communication and developing coping strategies. As Co-producer, Instructional Designer and Writer, my roles included finalising production of the CD-ROM by developing instructional plans and additional content, liaising with the project manager, consulting with key content advisors and usability testers, coordinating Screen Designers, video Editors and Programmers. I also developed content for two Teacher guides. The suite of REDI resources was distributed to schools across Australia in 2002, supported by a website.

The Russian Foreign Ministry's website says the United States has been in breach of several arms-related treaties, including the Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty, also known as START ONE, and a pact on conventional weapons. The Ministry also accuses the US of violating the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty. In particular, Russia says, the US has failed to provide assurances that some nuclear missile launchers and bombers converted to carry conventional weapons can't be retrofitted. In Washington, the State Department is dismissing the charges. Russia also accuses the US of preventing international supervision of its compliance with the Biological and Toxin Weapons Convention. The Ministry adds that secret information from the Los Alamos Nuclear Weapons Laboratory ended up at the hands of a drug gang in 2006. Russia and the United States signed a new START treaty on April 8th, replacing the START ONE agreement that expired in December. http://english.cntv.cn/program/newsupdate/20100808/100653.shtml Fidel Castro israel zionist mossad explosion remote controlled al qaeda 9/11 september 11th twin towers false flag illegal massive cover up war of terror cia bush fema camps brown blair iraq torture bin laden cybersecurity hacking nwo endgame conspiracy theories truth WTC World Trade Center US inside job cover-up obama nanothermite nuclear bomb evidence pentagon

MEPS Background & Security Screening  !! MUST SEE !!
http://www.IGuardCalifornia.com MEPS Background & Security Screening Every applicant who goes through MEPS is given an FBI-level background check. This check looks for past criminal offenses, misdemeanor and above (this does not include parking tickets and minor traffic violations). MEPS staff will also ask applicants a series of questions about their backgrounds, for example, if they have used illegal drugs. It is crucial that applicants answer honestly. Admitting a past offense does not necessarily mean an applicant will be automatically disqualified, but dishonesty does. In some cases, lying at MEPS is a criminal offense. Applicants are also fingerprinted for their records at MEPS. Additional processing may be required of applicants whose future military job calls for higher security clearance. Security is of utmost importance at MEPS. A lot of personal information is being submitted, and great care is taken to respect applicants' privacy and protect their identities. Biometric screening has been implemented at all MEPS to increase efficiency and safety. This equipment scans for points of recognition on each applicant's face to guarantee an accurate ID. **For information about joining the military contact Army National Guard recruiter Staff Sergeant Brito at 562.900.0575 or visit http://www.iguardcalifornia.com **For more information about MEPS and the ASVAB visit http://www.asvab2enlist.wordpress.com For information about surviving Army Basic Training visit: http://www.howtosurvivebasictraining.blogspot.com
