What is the best way to detox your body? A daily detox program aiming to improve health and wellbeing, eliminating toxins and free radicals.
Eat better: Detox programs haven't really been shown to work nearly as well as eliminating unhealthy foods from your diet and adding more fruits, vegetables, beans, nuts, seeds, whole grains, and wild fish like salmon and sardines. Focus on the long term health of your body and not on a gimmicky detox. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Depression does not: 30% of panic patients worsen with exercise due to panic response to build-up of lactic acid. 1/3 feel better and 1/3 don't feel any different. With generalized anxiety disorder people often feel better. The same holds for ptsd unless running is a trigger for flashbacks. Getting people with social anxiety out to exercise is sometimes difficult. I have no idea re: ocd. Colleagues? Best wishes. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
When replenishing good bacteria during/after antibiotics, which is better -- probiotic supplements or increasing intake of yogurt, kefir, etc.?
Little difference: Probiotics have had a lot of good press in recent years, but scientific proof behind them is weak. Yogurt or kefir probably will have no effect; theie bacteria do not survive in human intestines. None of these will do any harm; use whatever works best for you. But you don't need to do much; normal bacteria will repopulate naturally in a few weeks, with no special treatment. ...Read more

Which form of the following exercises do you think is best overall for one's fitness? Why? Brisk walking; jogging/running; rowing; elliptical; stairstepper or bicycling?
Cardio Mix: All of those are great options. If you have adipose tissue to lose (not everyone does), then consider an increase in cardio and a balanced diet. However, do not always do the same exercise or you will increase your risks for stress injuries. Mix things up with walking, running, biking, swimming, or circuit training. Ultimately you need to burn more than you consume. ...Read more
Low impact: Aquatics, body weight, or resistance bands/ tubing biking, and/or elliptical. Aquatics allow you to perform body weight exercises, but being in water actually reduces the stress on your body due to buoyancy. Once you are able to perform body weight activities then look to add light resistance w/ bands/ tubing. ...Read more
