Why Use Fluconazole Treatment

One of the nastiest types of infection is fungal infection.  Although they are more likely to grow on the skin, there are more serious ones though that develops in the respiratory system and infect not just the lungs, but also the blood and other parts of the body’s internal structure.  When you develop a fungal infection, it is vital that you treat the infection as soon as possible to prevent further growth, development, and spread of the infection.  Failure to do so may mean longer and costlier treatment.  Fluconazole treatment is needed for treating fungal infection.  Fluconazole treatment is an antifungal medication treatment that you take orally.

Most antifungals are applied on the skin directly to where the infection has developed.  However, if the infection has buried further or deeper in to the skin, or the infection has developed inside of the body, such topical type of antifungal will not work on such.  For cases like this, fluconazole treatment is necessary as fluconazole treatment comes in pill form which you take orally.  The treatment process in using fluconazole treatment is the purging of the infection from the inside of your body.  This effectively gets rid of the infection from your system.

For antifungal fluconazole treatment, it is necessary that you use fluconazole treatment for a course of several days.  The number of days you need to use fluconazole treatment depends on the type of infection that you have developed and the severity that it has.  Course treatment is necessary in completely getting rid of an infection from the body.  This is the very reason why doctors prescribe patients with several days of use of fluconazole treatment when they have a fungal infection.  By completing the course of fluconazole treatment, you will be able to completely purge the fungal infection out of the body.

MD claims Alzheimer's reversal "in minutes"
LOS ANGELES -- Sensational footage from a video released in early April has drawn suspicion to American MD Edward Tobinick. In the film he injects a dementia patient with an anti-arthritic, etanercept, and minutes later the man seemingly recognizes his wife who he hasn't identified in years. However, miracle cures tend to follow Dr Tobinick around. Last year he was reprimanded for calling the same drug a "breakthrough" for neck and back pain. "There is not a single study that shows my treatment methods do not work," he argues. (In the video below, the patient's family describes the man's recovery.)

"Nanoworms" target tumours
SAN DIEGO -- They travel through patient's veins, stealthily avoid the body's immune system, and may soon seek out and destroy tumours; , microscopic slivers of magnetic iron oxide coated with polymer -- created by researchers from UC San Diego, UC Santa Barbara and MIT -- bond to and reveal developing tumours that are too small to detect otherwise. The worms show up well on MRIs because of their superparamagnetic properties and in the future could carry targeted drug payloads directly to cancerous cells.

Inca skull surgeons had 90% survival rate

NEW HAVEN -- Inca surgeons had a detailed knowledge of cranial anatomy and used it to great effect when scraping away or removing plugs of patient's skulls to treat head trauma, says new research in the . Their patient survival rates approached 90% over 500 years ago, with low infection levels thanks to natural antiseptics the study says. The treatment, which emerged amongst the Inca around 1000 A.D., was used mostly to treat warriors with head injuries. Often they were anesthetized with maize beer.
