7 Simple Tips for Dry Eyes and Mouth
Dry eyes and mouth can have many causes. It is a common feature of CFS and fibromyalgia, and it often responds to simple nutritional support. In other cases, it may reflect autoimmune conditions such as Sjogren's Syndrome, which knocked Venus Williams out of this year's U.S. Open tennis championship — a consequence I think may have been avoidable. Fortunately for her, she changed her diet and was able to get back on the tour!
Have you ever suffered from dry eyes and mouth? If so, here are 7 simple tips you need to know!

Sleep Your Way to Lower Blood Pressure
In my recent book Real Cause, Real Cure (Rodale), I point out that lack of sleep can cause, or complicate, many different health problems, many of which you'd be surprised to find out are associated with poor sleep. These include heart disease, diabetes, and obesity. Now scientists are linking a lack of deep sleep — the most restorative kind of sleep — to high blood pressure.
Does Sunbathing Slow Down MS?
It has been clearly documented that people who get less sunshine are more likely to get multiple sclerosis (MS). This new study shows that in some of those who already have MS, getting more sunshine is also associated with better outcomes.

A Major Breakthrough in Fish Oil and Omega-3 Science
Omega-3 fatty acids provide support for healthy heart, brain, skin, immune and nervous system.
VECTOMEGA is the only Omega-3 with DHA/EPA in a biologically active, phospholipid form as it naturally occurs in salmon (not chemically altered or artificially spiked), which ensures absorption and improves stability.
Up to 50 times the cellular absorption of triglyceride fish oils, 1-2 tablets provides the Omega-3 DHA/EPA benefits equivalent to 8-16 capsules of most other fish oils (so 1-2 a day is plenty).
Optimize Healthy Eye, Mouth and Skin Hydration
Clinically shown to improve skin hydration (48% after 3 months) and increase softness and elasticity, Hydra-7 protects skin from free radicals caused by stress, smoking, and environmental pollution. It provides nutrients essential for proper functioning and renewal of dry mucous membranes, and enhances the health and beauty of the skin.
Hydra-7 nourishes the mucous membranes of the digestive tract (mouth, stomach, intestines), and respiratory and uro-genital (kidneys, bladder and vaginal) tract. The Sea Buckthorn Oil within it contains an exceptionally high content of Omega-7 fatty acid along with over 200 essential compounds to support overall good health.
Success Story From Barry C
Dear Dr. Teitelbaum,
I have to tell you, I have tried so many products in the last four years for my back issues. Nothing compares to Curamin. I still can't believe how well it is working for my pain and my mood. It is unreal. I have only been taking it for 10 days and I am 90% pain free. I know you hear this all the time from reading your site, but wanted to pass my feedback on to you. I am telling everyone I know about this. It has literally changed my life!
Dr. T enjoys interacting with visitors on his Facebook Fan page and has answered hundreds of questions from members. If you have a question you'd like to ask, want to enjoy the ongoing Q&A and discussion, or simply have a success story that you'd like to share on your battle to recover from CFS and fibromyalgia, we invite you to join us!
Would You Like a Private Consultation with Dr. T?
My greatest fulfillment has always come from working directly with patients in my practice. I'm happy to announce that I've decided to once again return to seeing patients for a few hours each week.

This Week's Joke
Four Worms in Church
A minister decided that a visual demonstration would add emphasis to his Sunday sermon.
Four worms were placed into four separate jars. The first worm was put into a container of alcohol, the second into a container of cigarette smoke, the third into a container of chocolate syrup, and the fourth into a container of good clean soil.
At the conclusion of the sermon, the Minister reported the following results:
First worm in alcohol … Dead.
Second worm in cigarette smoke … Dead.
Third worm in chocolate syrup … Dead.
Fourth worm in good clean soil … Alive!
The Minister asked the congregation, "What did you learn from this demonstration?"
From the back of the class, Maxine quickly raised her hand and gave the answer, "As long as you drink, smoke and eat chocolate, you won't have worms!"
