Dangerous drugs to be aware of (and just the tip of the iceberg):
(1) The new birth control pill Yaz (Yasmin) – causing strokes, heart attacks, blood clots, and gall bladder disease in 18 year olds.
(2) Ambien (sleep drug)  РLaw enforcement is saying that traffic accidents from blackouts caused by Ambien are on the rise.
(3) Tamoxifen (cancer drug) – for every case of cancer prevented there is a case of blood clots, life threatening stroke or endometrial cancer caused by it.

(4) Cholesterol lowering statin drugs such as Lipitor and Crestor cause muscle breakdown, muscle atrophy, liver disease, CO-Q 10 depletion,pain and weakness, plaque deposits, increased cancer risk, decreased immune function and even death. The FDA’s David Graham named it one of the 5 most dangerous drugs

(5) Gardasil and Cevarix (use to prevent sexually trasmitted viruses like HPV)- as of September 2010, linked to 56 girl’s deaths in the U.S. alone.

(6) Chantix (anti smoking drug ) – banned for use by truck drivers, bus drivers, and air traffic controllers after being linked to psychosis and


(7) Singulair and Acolate (asthma drugs)-  leukotriene receptor agonists linked to children and hostility, aggression, irritability, anxiety, and hallucinations.

What did not make Martha’s list but should have:

(1) Ritalin – ADHD “wonder” drug that acts almost identically like cocaine. This drug causes increased levels of dopamine which is the “hit” that addicts crave. Scientists believe that the reason that Ritalin has not produced more addicts is that oral ingestion has slower effects for getting high whereas injected or smoked crack high is instant.

(2) Celebrex – this pain killer is linked to kidney damage, cardiovascular disease, liver damage, and stomach bleeds.

(3) Avandia  (Diabetes drug)- banned in Europe, this drug increases the risk of heart attack

(4) Fosamex, Boniva and all the Bisphosphonate drugs (bone density drugs) – double the risk of atrial fibrillation, thigh bone fractures, jaw bone rot, serious eye problems, liver damage, renal failure, and on and on. There are legitimate natural ways to protect bone health.

Dr. Brown’s fine tip on drugs is very simple. DO YOUR RESEARCH before taking any on them. It is so clear that most health conditions can be managed, treated, or cured with diet, exercise, and lifestyle changes. The choice is yours. Caveat Emptor!

Interactive Metronome (IM) has been widely recognized for improving motor skills and now research is finding unexpected benefits to IM treatment. Clinicians working with cognitive, behavioral, social, communicative, and academic functions are finding substantial improvements in these areas:
(1) Attention and concentration
(2) Cognitive speed
(3)Executive function
(4) Auditory processing
(5) Language processing
(6) Motor control and co-ordination
(7) Memory problems
(8) Self control (aggression/impulsivity)
(9) Reading & math fluency
(10) Phonological awareness
(11) Speech apraxia
(12) Tourette’s Syndrome, tics,
(13) Stuttering
(14) Sensory processing

What is IM?
IM is a brain based assessment and treatment tool that has been shown to improve neurological functions of motor planning and sequencing (core functions of the brain). Reaching, grasping, aiming, speaking, walking, and listening all utilize motor planning and sequencing. Before IM, objective measurements were lacking and there were two important questions that were unanswered:
(1) What tool can precisely and objectively measure and document the degree of impairment to motor planning and sequencing?
(2) What is the most objective and efficient way to restore these core brain functions?

IM is the answer to both these questions. Clinicians can objectively measure motor planning and sequencing and assign a level of impairment in milliseconds. As the student improves, her ability to motor plan and sequence is reflected in improving millisecond averages.

What age group is IM appropriate for? Age 6 and above have been traditionally qualified; however, today chiropractic neurologists have been using IM with infants, toddlers, and preschoolers in certain cases. Expected improvements in the areas of sensory processing, motor planning, language, and communication are measured and documented. Some students progress at a faster rate than others.

How does IM improve function? Timing and rhythm

IM has been shown to improve function and recovery of patients with:
Auditory Processing Disorder
Autistic Spectrum Disorders
Brain Tumors
Cerebral Palsy
Cerebral Vascular Accident
Developmental Delays/Learning Disabilities
Dyslexia and other Reading Disorders
Fetal Alcohol Syndrome
Limb Amputation/Prosthetics
Multiple Sclerosis
Non Verbal Learning Disorder
