Doctors could identify typhoid fever

Topic: Doctors Smelled Diseases


October 3, 2019

I've read that doctors could identify typhoid fever by a patient odor strongly resembling that of fresh-baked bread. Typhus victims, on the other hand, have breath with a "peculiar musty odor," according to an old encyclopedia I have.

Paula - USA



Thanks for the information. It is a shame that the old ways of diagnosis have gone by the wayside.

Thermo-Sentinel cookware handles

Topic: Waterless Cooking


January 9, 2019

Would you have any information on where I can purchase replacement handles for Thermo Sentinel stainless steel cookware bought in the 70’s
Thanks for your time.

Flo - USA



It looks like your cookware has lasted a long time. That is great,

I think Thermo-Sentinel was bought out by Vita Craft cookware. You can try their website at Vita Craft or call 1-800-359-3444.

Another possibility is to check your local hardware store or handyman for generic handles.

Best wishes for solving your problem.

Is Camelot cookware dishwasher safe?

Topic: Cookware Companies


September 1, 2018

Can you please tell me if Camelot temp-tone cookware is dishwasher safe. Just remembered that I bought it over 40 years ago and never used it.

Jacquline - USA



Since the cookware is stainless steel, it should be dishwasher safe. Camelot is now owned by Regal Ware so you can get information from them.

You also can see questins about Camelot from the FixYa site.

40 years! You had better start using the cookware.

My team and I recently created a guide for families/households concerned with making their homes wheelchair accessible, and I thought it would be a helpful addition for your site's visitors if they find themselves in a similar situation.

When I'm not working with homes, I like to help people out with home-related questions, and I found a lot of guides covering this subject were either too thin or incomplete. I wanted to make something comprehensive that addresses every part of the house, inside and out, to show people that wheelchair accessibility is an achievable goal when approached systematically.

Thank you for your time, and please let me know if there's anything I can do on my end to help you out with this.

All the best,

Greg - USA



Sorry for the delay. I added a link to you page from Health Resources - Special needs - Disabilities.

Best wishes for success in your work.

Cookware parties

Topic: Cookware Companies


March 28, 2018

Looking for recommendations of leading cookware doing parties and recurring help?

John - USA



You might check with some local stores that sell waterless cookware for referrals concerning cookware parties.

Also, a Google search on "cookware parties" can give a listing for the various brands. I've seen some from cookware salesmen promoting their services, but of course you want someone local.

Best wishes in your efforts.

Doctors not helping health condition

Topic: Meniere Disease


March 12, 2018

Dear Champion
I live in a country with wishy washy health protocol and doctors who operate within 'boxes'; not really caring whether patients are healed or get some form of relief; not as my health condition kept deteriorating. My health challenges began with environmental hazard-mold and carbon poisoning. Severe breathing and oxygen deficiency. Only to learn after five years of being treated for symptoms of....that there is no medical protocol for mold and carbon poisoning.I have so many symptoms it is confusing.
One I am sure about is a severe mineral deficiency main one being magnesium which I have been trying to fix on my own. the correct blood test does not exist to test magnesium deficiency.
What do I do? This is my life and I cant give up. After reading and reading and researching I am on a vicious looping cycle of Hyperhidrosis. All the symptoms are there with excruciating vicious cramps crippling me twisting all of me into weird shapes...I see my muscles sinking into pits in my arms hands legs toes..... Pains in head, vertigo, dizziness I have fallen many times - there is damage to my help THERE IS NO MEDICAL HELP. over the years so many other challenges - glandular etc.

Usha - USA



I am sorry to hear that you are having these health problems. And I agree that there are many doctors who simply "go by the book" and don't really analyse symptoms and possible solutions. This is especially true concerning environmental hazards and poisoning.

I don't think excessive sweating is caused by forms of poisoning. But it might be a side effect. More importantly, you want to regain your health and get relief from your pain.

With many symptoms, you probably have a number of health issues. Note that forms of poisoning can create numerous symptoms.

Try to live as healthy of a lifestyle as possible, and in the meantime look for some doctors or clinics that can help you. Perhaps your doctors can recommend some specialized help, even in some other city.

Best wishes on getting relief and in getting healthy again.

Too many x-rays?

Topic: X-ray Risks


December 26, 2017

I am a 31 year old person and my chest x-ray done by a doctor two times in a month.I want to know that there is any risk or not for my body.


Narendra - India



Having x-rays two times a month seems excessive unless it is to monitor a fast growing ailment. Ask your doctor if having x-rays twice a month is really necessary.

Being 31 years old, you need to make sure your reproductive organs are protected by lead shielding.

If the x-ray equipment is modern, the radiation is much smaller, and the risk is less. However, it still is best to not have the x-rays unless really necessary.

Best wishes for good health.

Ultra Craft waterless cookware handles

Topic: Waterless Cooking


November 2, 2017

Do you know where or what company took over Ultra Craft waterless cookware? I need some replacement handles. Thank you

Joleta - USA



You might try Regal Ware or Kitchen Craft, since they bought out many cookware companies. Otherwise, you can try some repair shop to get generic handles that may fit.

I hope that helps.

Warm bath after overeating

Topic: Vomiting


September 30, 2017

Does taking a nice warm bath help stomach aches after overeating?

Eli - USA



Although a warm batch can relax you, I don't think it does much to relieve stomach aches after overeating.

You should try not to eat too much. A stomach ache should be a warning to you.

Digestive aids can help relieve the stomach discomfort. But they should not be taken all the time.

Best wishes for good stomach health.
