I have been dealing with a lot of grief lately. This is usually the way it goes. A patient comes in who is suffering with loss. Perhaps it is the breakup of a relationship, the loss of a pet, or the death of a loved one. There is nothing more devastating to us than loss. It hurts the heart and leaves us with an emptiness that is difficult to fill. It is something that everyone on the planet will have to deal

When was the last time you had a check-up with your dentist? We’ve always known that taking care of our teeth and gums is important,
but new research, linking gum disease and plaque build up to early cancer death, suggests that it may be

Sexuality is a complex process and behavior. It is coordinated not only by various
systems of our bodies such as the endocrine, nervous, vascular and
others. It is also related to personal experience, social, cultural

different needs and response to the sexual relationship. Any disturbance
in any of these areas can potentially lead to sexual dysfunction.

A: Generally speaking, lymphocytes help to destroy toxic metabolites. They originate from lymphoblasts in the spleen, lymph glands, tonsils, bone marrow, and thymus. They help to determine the stage of infection: acute/recovery/chronic. Generally, when lymphs
are high, there is some systemic toxicity. Given the
