1. Technology

80 % of all Americans complain of lower back pain at some point in their lives. Every day activities like sitting at a desk, putting your shoes on, riding a bike, etc., can lead to debilitating back pain. Overuse and abuse over time will eventually catch up to us all and our daily lives are conducive to living fast and convenient. Poor lifestyle choices throughout the years have contributed to back pain, but you can be proactive and address many of the issues before they become unbearable.

I know no one wants to hear it but our obsession with technology has not helped our long term health. The neck and back are strained through texting, working on a computer, watching tv. The list really goes on and on. While no one expects you to give that up completely, taking breaks and doing exercises will pay off in the long run.

Blepharitis is a chronic inflammatory condition of the eye lid margins.  Dr Michael Lange says this condition can be very mild and symptomless or marked with severe symptoms.  Blepharitis is a combination of scaly, flakey, red , swollen, crusty,  greasy eye lids.  Patients with blepharitis are more likely to experience eyes that burn, tear, feel sandy and gritty these patents often times wake up in the am with their eyes matted together. Blepharitis also increases the risk of a sty or chalazion forming on the lid margins. Many of these patients will also loose lashes along the lid margins.

There are three basic types of blepharitis: 1. Bacterial  2. Seborrhea  3. Demodex ( Mites).


Cliradex for blepharitis, if in doubt use Cliradex

Natural treatment for blepharitis consists of proper lid hygiene. Scrubbing the eye lashes extremely well before bed time with Ocusoft foam will reduce the cause in most cases however a certain percent of patients will have demodex ( mites) on their lashes and will need to use a diluted solution of tea tree oil applied to lid margins or will need to use Cliradex a commercially prepared wipe with the components  of tea tree oil in it already.  The eye lid margins must first be heated well with a warm wash cloth or use the Bruder mask ( mask developed to heat the lids) , then clean lashes well with Ocusoft scrubbing foam and rinse well. Prior to bed wipe the cleaned lids with Cliradex wipes and do not wash off. The Cliradex  will kill the demodex mites that are laying eggs in the hair follicles and creating a marked case of blepharitis. So heating and cleaning the lid margins is the most important step at treating blepharitis.  When the heat is being applied to the lid margins gently massage the lid margins to help open the potentially blocked Meibomian glands along the lid margins.

Fortifeye Super Omega for blepharitis & Fortifeye Focus helps inflamed lid margins

Dr Michael Lange uses Fortifeye super omega-3 two times a day orally in his patients to help reduce the inflammation associated with blepharitis. He states this is a crucial step in the natural treatment of blepharitis. The Fortifeye Super Omega ( or a triglyceride form omega 3 fish oil with approx. Epa 900 and Dha 600) will get into the Meibomian glands and help to produce a much clearer healthier tear film and this will reduce the dry eyes associated with blepharitis.  The anti inflammatory properties associated with the Fortifeye Super Omega will also reduce the eye lid inflammation and redness. Dr Lange also likes to add 6 mg of astaxanthin along with some lutein and zeaxanthin in moderate to marked cases of blepharitis for the additional anti inflammatory properties when used together with omega 3.  He uses an astaxanthin, lutein product he developed called Fortifeye Focus combined with two Fortifeye Super omega for most of his moderate to marked blepharitis cases.


Great for dry eye associated with blepharitis.

Most of the blepharitis patients will have a dry eye as well so using a good unpreserved artificial tear if very important. Most of the artificial tears purchased over the counter do not work well however. Dr Lange recommends using a preservative free lubricating eye drop that has hyluranic acid in it like Oasis Tears Plus or Blink tears. These both work quite well in dry eye patients with blepharitits. In the more advanced dry eye patients he recommends using one of those two (blink or Oasis) combined with Retaine tears. Retaine replaces the outer lipid layer of the tear film that may be compromised in blepharitis patients.

In summary the natural treatment of Blepharitis is Heating the lids, cleaning the lids and utilizing the nutritional benefits of Omega 3 fish oil and astaxanthin. Treating the symptoms with good unpreserved lubricating eye drops. Blepharitis is a chronic problem and patinets will need to follow these instructions daily for one month then maybe cut back to lid hygiene and heat every three days but continue taking the omega 3 and astaxanthin indefinitely.  If you have blepharitis go to your eye care provider for continued follow up care.   You can purchase the items discussed from your local eye care provider or go to   or call Fortifeye Toll Free at: 866 503 9746.  You may also come to any od the 10 Lange Eye Care locations in Florida for  Natural treatment of blepharitis.

It’s basically unfair that celebrities get all the good genes, and it’s double unfair when they pass them onto their equally-as-gorgeous children. And even though we’re jealous, it’s time to take a look at famous moms and dads and their identical offspring, from A-Listers to housewives to Oscar winners.









Aside from their hair colors, Jen’s daughter, Violet is her mini-me. They both have the same little laughter based eyes. They also share the same unique dimples in their plump cheeks.

Over the years, many celebrities have opened up about their health issues. There are countless stars who have battled cancer or other illnesses, but far fewer who have chosen to talk about diseases that are considered embarrassing.
While the Internet has its theories about which Hollywood stars are infected, there are only a few celebrities out there who are brave enough to talk about their STDs or their battle with hepatits C (which can be transmitted sexually in some cases, but is a bloodborne pathogen more often associated with drug use).
  1. Pamela Anderson


After a routine tattoo procedure in the 1990s, the Baywatch star was infected with Hepatitis C from sharing a needled with then husband, Tommy Lee. The star attests that before the incident, she was free of any kind of diseases. She also reports that Lee never told her he had the disease.
