ANYONE HAVE THE JITTERBUG TOUCH SMART PHONE?
Am not a cell-phone lover in general… Have a small Verizon basic one… My eyes are not the best and hate the small numbers it has…
Have really wanted to get the Jitterbug for some time… I am impressed with the new Jitterbug touch since it has access to many different things.
There are different plans and am not sure which one to get? Do not use the cell phone i have for many calls.. Have land phones in my home… Do not text but the Jitterbug has this option in this phone… Your not tied up with a contract or cancellation fees…
To add am a Senior and not into to much technology.. To overwhelming with all the new stuff.
All i have is my desk top Pc with mouse… Another thing suffering with carpel tunnel and really want a touch screen type of device..
Would appreciate hearing from anyone that may have this one and comment?
Yogurt is a staple in my menu. I like it a lot. I even got a yogurt maker and am making my own, thank you pipman.* (Just FINALLY finished cleaning up burnt up milk from the pot [baked yogurt – check])
But theoretically, a decent bacterial mix is superior because it would have more different kinds and especially, more bacteria that is guaranteed to survive the acid pit of tarnation that is the stomach. It is not clear to me yet whether and to which degree yogurt residents survive to get to where they are supposed to be at.
To put my original post in perspective, – I was really just curious how it works. Because you’d sorta expect the bacteria to get into your stomach and do what Rowdy Piper did to save the Earth from exctinction brought on by evil frogs from outer space – repopulate it. But they don’t.
*That stupid yogurt maker is the first kitchen gadget not counting regular microwave out of all I gave my son that he actually uses regularly. I am impressed.
Massha, I think you would be better off and do just as well eating some fortified yogurt. But with the issues you are talking about, I KNOW what you are saying. I wish I could help you more.
Oh, no doubt, no doubt. The transplant is a serious issue. I reada bunch, don’t worry. I was just making a point that these bacteria do not regrow by themselves.
Unfortunately, this is one of those cases where doctors really are not much help. Candida overgrowth is not an officially recognized illness and there are no officially approved treatments for it.
So, between my refusal to believe in naturopathic voodoo and requiring actual emprirical support on one hand – and lack of interest in the official medical community on the otrher – I am a bit stuck.
Also, my current clinic is awful. It is sorta Wal-mart of medicine, and we have a team of doctors assigned to a patient, not an actual doctor. How awful is my clinic? Well, I had to PUT UP A FIGHT to get tested for vit D deficiency. Also, the nurse who was seeing me actually told me when I was asking her about weight loss issues, she literally told me "all it is is just eat less and exercise more". That statement was so idiotic coming from a nurse I was stunned. Mmmm … thanks? What would you suggest I do with fatigue and inability to work when ‘eating less’? How do you suggest… oh nevermind. A clinic where doctors tell you ‘just eat less’ is not going to be much help on things, does it? Funny story – I don’t think there are any good clinics in the area. It’s a … funny area. Service is generally bad here. Everywhere. People are rude and not very bright.
They were rather prompt in setting up that one surgery I had and the surgery was good – but the after care non-existant, and I was lucky I had an appointment with a different doctor when the infection started because otherwise I could not get attention from the folks who did my surgery and sent me home with no antibiotic prescription. Can you believe they actually have what seems to be India-based answering service? You call, select from voice menues, and that gets routed to central answering service, never to an actual doctor. So to sum up – there IS NOBODY around here to ask these questions of…
Now look, I am an empricist, a pretty well educated person. I would be the last one to recommend anybody self-medicating. What we are dealing here is a general wellness issue, if you will, one that current doctors do not treat right. Just that.
Massha, the "transplant" you talk about is only done as a last resort and in extreem cases…not a regular procedure.
As with most things like this, as a nurse, I suggest that you talk to you Dr about any medication, even suppliments. There are too many questions out there about Probiotics and the good and bad things that they can do for you. Your Dr is the best person to answer those questions for you.
