This just goes to show you that this whole Panda scheme is just a smokescreen.
You use to have to turn off your web history even if you were not logged in as it defaulted to enabled. I would check this like once a week because it would always switch back on for me. Now this feature is only available for logged in users. Good for Google (I have been cursing them a lot lately).
~1.3% of English queries noticeably affected.

We strongly recommend using unique, compelling, and high-quality content, not content which was copied, rewritten, spun, synonimized, auto-translated or otherwise recreated based on existing content. When our algorithms have choice between these pages, which one do you think users would appreciate to find more in our search results?

People who drink alcohol also tend to wake up inside the middle of the night when the effects of an alcoholic “nightcap” put on off."
Personally, it looks like your site is trying to offer medical advice, and from the looks of it, the content appears to be scraped / spun from other sites. If your site is the original source of this content, then I'd recommend contacting the other sites. To me, this is not a matter of tweaking the wording to make it appear more natural.
Done well, it can only help, but .....
.... In the context of John Mueller's post on Google, is your content up to the standard he recommends ?
... and what other aspects of Panda have you considered working on to improve your chances?
previously it was hit and was sent to the bottom.
