How many household cleaning products are sitting under your sink? Americans plunk down billions of dollars each year on germ warfare to keep their homes more sanitized and better smelling. Seeing that we all probably have at least a couple of cleaning products, the question is, are they all necessary? The even bigger question is: are they safe? Many say no. According to the EPA, many everyday household cleaners present a real health risk, and it's no wonder given their ingredients. Formaldehyde, petroleum and sodium hypochlorite (bleach) are just a few toxins proven to contribute to memory loss, asthma attacks and dizziness, to name just a few.

MILAN - On the average day in the United States over 11,120 babies are born. That means that there are more than 3 million women in the United States that are pregnant on any given day. Although giving birth to a new baby is a momentous and extraordinary event, it is often times painful to go through, and some times quite difficult to recover from. For the 30 percent of women who give birth in the United States via C-section, including Kelly Bleile Dete of Sandusky who gave birth to her first child two months ago, recovering from childbirth can be even more challenging. Dete recalls, "When I was pregnant with Joslyn Elizabeth and was told that a C-section procedure would be the best way for me to deliver, I had many questions for my doctor. I was told that the surgical incision would be sore and most women report that walking the first few times after birth is very painful. Most women I knew needed narcotics to cope with the pain, but I was concerned about how that would affect the baby and me. When Dr. Dorman told me about a new non-narcotic therapy that was being used in lieu of narcotics and would keep me pain free, I did some online research and decided because of the positive patient experiences I read about, I decided to give it a try."
