Facing the recurrent vertigo of meniere’s disease

DEAR DR. ROACH: My wife is suffering from Meniere's disease, a condition that causes, at times, severe vertigo and disorientation. Although she's never actually been diagnosed with the condition, after several months of numerous tests on her heart, brain, ears, eyes and balance, the doctors "think" it's Meniere's disease. It came upon her rather suddenly, which is another puzzling aspect of her condition.

Who even wants to be Speaker?

Rep. Tom McClintock of California is about as conservative a Republican as you can find in Congress. As a state legislator in Sacramento, he was a well-known budget hawk. In the House, writes The Almanac of American Politics, he has been "a faithful conservative vote, though an occasionally nettlesome one to GOP leaders seeking to limit internal dissent." Former California Gov. Pete Wilson has such marked antipathy for McClintock that he took the unusual step of supporting a GOP challenger in McClintock's latest re-election bid.

Pope gets served House Specialty

Business financial ratios

Much like the speedometer, fuel gauge and oil pressure gauge on your car, financial ratios provide a useful way to pinpoint strengths and weaknesses in the performance and solvency of your business. Also like cars, different businesses are conceived and designed to travel at different speeds. Try to run your diesel pickup (or Prius, to be politically sensitive) in an Indy race and you will soon realize this fundamental truth.

Shoot first; ask questions later

After America learned of the latest mass shooting at an Oregon community college, President Barack Obama delivered remarks in which he lamented the loss of good, innocent people and then added: "Somehow this has become routine. ... We've become numb to this." By the next day, Obama had a remedy: "Be a single-issue voter."

The role of alternative therapies in cancer treatment

DEAR DR. ROACH: I wonder why you never talk about holistic measures to prevent illnesses, such as cancer. I just read an article by an oncologist who said there are certain anti-cancer supplements that work, including vitamin D, magnolia extract and artichoke extract, all of which have been shown in laboratory studies to kill a variety of cancer cells, including colon, breast and liver cancers, and leukemia. Artichoke extract also contains cynarin, which decreases inflammation. Other compounds that can reduce cancer growth are black cumin seed oil and bee propolis, which is rich in caffeic acid phenethyl ester (CAPE), chrysin ...

I’m going to miss Boehner

I am going to miss John Boehner as speaker of the House. The GOP looks like the fun party with its ring-a-ding leader and his dash of Dean Martin. Boehner even sauntered into his resignation news conference Friday while crooning, "Zip-a-dee-doo-dah, zip-a-dee-ay. My oh my, what a wonderful day." The speaker chose not to cling to power but to walk away without compromising his supporters.
