It was also determined that the women who had the highest intake of green tea had the biggest reduction in the risk of developing breast cancer compared to the women with the lowest intake.

More and more women come to see me with concerns about headaches; particularly migraines. Most of these women have been worked up by neurologists and have tried numerous prescription drugs that are either ineffective or cause unacceptable side effects.

Although she experienced the headaches in a random and frequent pattern, she ALWAYS had...
