Health Q&A: June 7, 2017


Question : Hi Dr. Glidden, I have a red scaly patch on my right temple. I have had it for 7 months. It was diagnosed as eczema by a physician assistant. He gave me hydrocortisone cream. It did get a little better. I saw another doctor (dermatologist) and she said it was a precancerous lesion called (actinic keratosis). She did not want to freeze it with silver nitrate, but prescribed Fluorouracil (topical) cream 0.5% to apply every night for 28 nights. What are your thoughts on using this cream? I'm 110 lb and 5'6. I have been taking the Plant derived minerals, BTT, beyond Osteo, Omega and Selenium for 2 months now.

Question : Hey Doc, I submitted a question Monday night last minute about my birthing situation.  As of today I am still not dilated and my doctor has me scheduled for an induction this weekend. He wants me to come in Fri night to insert a folly catheter to try & dilate me & then start the induction sat morning with Petocin.  3 years ago when my first son was born they tried to induce me two days in a row with petocin & my body did not respond at all & resulted in a c-section.

The doctor & I have a discrepancy on my due date. According to my dates of the first day of my missed period, my due date would be June 13th.  My first ultrasound scan measured my due date at June 2nd. The doctor declared my due date June 2nd & feels very uncomfortable letting me go two weeks passed that date (which I’ve heard is safe), due to increased risk for still birth.  I asked Monday which due date is considered most accurate to go by & you told me to come back tonight for that answer.  You also recommended the homeopathic medicine Caulophyllum in the 1M strength 2 every 30 minutes. Is that until I feel contractions start or throughout the contractions & labor. Is there a certain amount of days I need to take this? Also I haven’t found 1 M strength. I found 30x & 30c. Is there an equivalent I can take?  There have been some with a second name after Caulophyllum thalictroides, is this the same? You also recommended a midwife. I did have a midwife in OK & moved to AR During my pregnancy to learn that Arkansas does not allow midwives to perform VBACS. I am currently at 1 of the 2 hospitals here that do VBACS. I have thought several times about going back to OK for this birth(4.5hr drive)   Thanks for everything & thanks for pointing out to follow the baby in a hospital in case they try to vaccinate it. I did not think of that.

Question : Hi Dr. G, 3 weeks ago I wrote in about my husband having the trouble with his esophagus and difficulties expanding his lungs. You told him to take 1oz. of Calcium, 1oz. of Plant Minerals in 2 oz. of fresh squeezed OJ for a few days. He’s still on it but has backed down on the dosages.  He has seen some relief but the phlegm in the back of his throat remains, he’s constantly clearing it, feels nauseous, which keeps him from eating regularly and always yawning, tired and lack of energy.  His stomach feels bloated at times and he still can’t burp well to relieve the pressure because he still feels like there’s a restriction in his esophagus. Some small burps, but not all, causes a burning sensation in his heart and chest area, and he is salting his food, he’s always been big on salt. He’s still on the HBSP, Selenium, extra EFA’s, Gluco Gel and added the Ultimate Daily vitamins.  Would having an endoscopy be of any benefit to see if there was any damage in his esophagus from his choking incident?

Question : Hello Dr Glidden, Chula Vista Gary here. About 3 weeks ago I started my testimonial to you but have had to put it in a pending file. I had severe pain in my neck and headed to the chiropractor. I was suffering with a pinched nerve. Had had some bone broth, ordered Gluco-gel. That was seven days ago and today I am already pain free. The testimonial will come in time, hopefully my bladder diverticulawill be completely healed but am wondering if I cam get your Practitioner Code to order Selenium.

Question : I did the weight management plan two years ago using the ASAP drops. I have a friend doing the program now (she is a nurse). I noticed the weight management kit now has Rev FX, is this the same formula as the ASAP? She asked me this question and I don't have the answer. I just want her to have the same results I had with the ASAP drops (and of course the meal plan, nutrition, etc)
