  • 1812 War - The 1812 war acually began with an invasion of Canada by the US in an attempt to force the British from North America. While both sides claimed victory and neither gained territory, the war is notable as the last time a foreign power's army set foot on American soil.
  • Britney Spears Wedding Photo - When my editor asked me to write an article about Britney Spears, I thought "hmmm, this freelance writing gig does have its downside."
  • Cause of Bladder Infection - An understanding of the traditional chinese idea still yields some insight into the cause of bladder infection.
  • Cause of Urinary Tract Infection - It is always important to determine the actual cause of urinary tract infection. Some women who have a condition called interstitial cystitis are misdiagnosed with urinary tract infections and then mistreated with repeated rounds of antibiotics.
  • Home Remedy for Toothache - Echinacea, the well known immune stimulant used for colds and flus actually has a very long history of use for pain and abscess. I have found it quite reliable as a home remedy for toothache due to its various traditionally observed actions.
  • Hypothyroidism Symptom - If constipation is a hypothyroidism symptom, it won't be effectively treated with standard methods such as increased fiber or essential fatty acids.
  • Pregnancy and Yeast Infection - For handling pregnancy and yeast infection prior to conception, one is best advised to consult a naturopathic physician who meets the criteria of the AANP.
