Thermo-Sentinel cookware handles
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 (28909)
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?
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 (28685)
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 (28660)
Sorry for the delay. I added a link to you page from Health Resources - Special needs - Disabilities.
Best wishes for success in your work.

Looking for recommendations of leading cookware doing parties and recurring help?
John - USA (28489)
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
March 12, 2018
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 spine....no help THERE IS NO MEDICAL HELP. over the years so many other challenges - glandular etc.
WHAT DO I DO?
Usha - USA (28472)
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?
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 (28367)
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

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

Warm bath after overeating
September 30, 2017
Does taking a nice warm bath help stomach aches after overeating?
Eli - USA (28268)
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.
Hearing high frequency pitches
August 25, 2017
WHAT COULD BE PUT IN A HUMANS BODY THAT WEEKS MAKE THEN HEAR HI PITCH FREQUENCY'S FEEL IT AND DESTROY THEIR TEETH RAISE INTERNAL BODY TEMPERATURE TO DEADLY TEMPS AND CAUSE HEART CRAMPING TORTURE TERRORISM ACTS ON A MULTIPLE DISABLED WOMAN THAT CAN BE ACTIVATED BY FLYING DRONES OR TELEPHONE?

Tina - USA (28198)
Some people are sensitive to high frequency electrical signals, such as come from high power electrical lines. Also, a defective microwave oven can emit electrical signals that affect some people.
For people with older metallic filling in their teeth, high frequency electrical signals can even heat of the fillings. It is good to check with your dentist on this issue.
Such sensitivity can cause anxiety attacks, as well as other symptoms. If you have some device like a pacemaker, you should make sure it is not defective and causing you some problems. It is good to check with your doctor to make sure devices working properly.
I hope this helps you solve your problems. Best wishes for good health.
Permission to provide a link
May 12, 2017
Nick here; I’m reaching out to introduce myself as Footprints Behavioral Health Center founder, 12 Steps advocate, and small business peer. As a business built on strong community support and professional referrals relationships, I know the many hours and energy went into building these relationships. Kudos on the impressive list of professional contacts on your resource page. I want to extend our professional relationship by adding your website to our website's Resource Page.
Let me know if that is okay.
Nicholas - USA (28043)
You certainly can add a link to our Health pages. Best wishes for success in your endeavors.

My name is Jeron McFarland and I work in the outreach department at Mesothelioma Guide, an advocacy organization dedicated to helping patients diagnosed with asbestos illnesses. In addition, the resources and support you provide are commendable and something I personally admire. I can’t thank you enough for everything you’ve done assisting and guiding individuals throughout our communities.
Because Mesothelioma is a rare cancer and very few treat it, we specialize in connecting patients with doctors and treatment options that are best suited for them. Our services and resources are 100% free to patients and family members.
Unfortunately, that means we don’t have the necessary funding to advertise our services. Therefore, I'm reaching out to webmasters that have visitors who may have been exposed to asbestos or may be suffering from an asbestos-related illness.
I noticed you already have a mesothelioma resource in your links sections however, our resource separates itself from the rest for the simple fact that we have a Veteran and nurse, in-house, ready to answer questions from anyone all over the world. Would you be willing to add our resource to help us spread awareness? A little help can go a long way.
Jeron - USA (27944)
Thanks for the suggested resource. I added it to our Health Resources page. Best wishes for success in your work.

First off, I hope your week is off to a great start! I'm reaching out to you today as someone responsible for disseminating health and specifically sleep-related resources. As you may or may not be aware, sleep disorders affect over 73 million people in the United States alone and my team at Tuck sleep aims to help reduce that number would love your help!
We created pieces to help everyone from newborns to teenagers to college students to our aging population understand sleep disorders, sleep hygiene and an gain an increased understanding of the often confusing science behind sleep.
We're trying to raise sleep awareness worldwide and would your help in this effort. We’ve been lucky enough to be featured on NPR and TedEd, as well as referenced by organizations like the ADAA and the American Sleep Apnea Association to name a few and were wondering if you might be interested in utilizing our information as well. Would you consider sharing this information by adding a link or our resources here alongside the other great organizations you’ve featured or wherever you see fit?
Kayla - USA (27949)
Thanks for the resources. I added them to Health Resources and Aging Resources.
Unmarked saucepan needs fixing
February 10, 2017
I have a double boiler saucepan 2-3 qt with no brand mark. It's heavy and appears to be waterless. There is a circle on inside bottom of pan. The lid is Saladmaster and fits well. Did Saladmaster make a pan not branded??
Also missing handles on both pieces and the rectangular metal stub that handle fits onto is 1/2" x 3/4". The handle from the marked Saladmaster pan that came with this unmarked one fits on either pan. Need to know a possible brand so I can order handles to replace them.
Diane - USA (27873)
It is unlikely that Saladmaster would not have a brand mark on their cookware.
You can try to order parts from Saladmaster Parts. Personally, I would check into getting a new saucepan instead of trying to fix the old one.

January 29, 2017
1. what are the pressure points in foot reflexology?
2. what are their functions in each pressure points?
Jesus Ramon Neopolo - Philippines (27837)
I don't have the specific pressure points. You can check the various Resources near the bottom of the Reflexology page.
Best wishes for your work in reflexology.
Recommending mesothelioma resource
January 16, 2017
My name is Virgil Anderson, and I’m a cancer patient at NCI. I saw some information on your site about mesothelioma and asbestos, and I was hoping you had room for mesothelioma.net. The medical professionals behind mesothelioma.net got me into NCI, and have been responsible for my continued battle against mesothelioma. They sponsor The American Cancer Society, ALA, Make a Wish Foundation, MD Anderson and many, many more.
Please, if there’s anything you can do to help, let me know.
I appreciate your time in advance, and hope you’re off to a good start in 2017.
Virgil - USA (27809)
Thanks for the information. I checked an saw that I already have a link to mesothelioma.net. However, I moved it to a more prominent position.
Best wishes for a full recovery from your cancer.
