Beautiful gorgeous hair as celebrity people have (shiny smooth hair) taking all possible measures like taking nutritious diet, exercise, sls free sham?

My Opinion Only: The best way to ensure the healthiest hair is to be the healthiest YOU can be. Your general nutrition is the major contributor to healthy hair. The hair you see "on" so called celebrities more likely than not take HOURS of PROFESSIONAL work to obtain and "last" ONLY as LONG as the appearance or performance!! Just avoid such idiocies as FREQUENT BRUSHING which only causes premature hair loss! Z ...Read more

Ate marshmallows roasted  w/ fake fire log. Company says 'non toxic waxes' "california proposition 65... By-products known to cause cancer." concern?

Once?: If you did this once, it is probably not a problem. But burning those fake fire logs in the house often may increase your risk. There are a lot of other ways to decrease your cancer risk, so this is probably not a big deal. Eat healthy, avoid stress, get plenty of rest. These are your best bets for decreasing your risk of cancer. ...Read more

I've had EKG, echo, monitor, etc. Docs say nothing wrong...just wired this way.  98 heart rate, my pulse seems erractic. Sometimes I feel a click? ?

Likely normal: If you have had a full evaluation and normal blood work than your heart rate is probably ok. Certainly, a heart rate of 98 is above average but this can be a normal variant for some. Sometimes, things such as dietary supplements, anxiety and caffeine can cause an elevated heart rate. ...Read more

Is Supraventricular Ectopic Beats flurry of extremely fast beats in 6-8 inbetween beats?Dont get often! None on Betablockers Cardio said "normal"True?

Is Supraventricular Ectopic Beats flurry of extremely fast beats in 6-8 inbetween beats?Dont get often! None
on Betablockers Cardio said "normal"True?

Ask ten of your: friends if they experience the same symptoms. If more than 5 do it might be "normal." The fact that beta blockers suppress them should suggest to you that they are not normal otherwise at least some of the ten would also be on beta blockers to suppress their "normal" beats. I think you need to have them defined (diagnosed) and then treated. Beta blockers can be a treatment but EP could be cure. ...Read more

Oily products can make tinea versicolor worse .. Can loprox (ciclopirox) cream applied on face make it worse ?Is it an oily cream it contains mineral oil !

Occlusion is bad: Anything that occludes evaporation on the skin is bad for tinea versicolor, a fungal infection of the skin. Best to use products without oils like a water soluble cream. Lotrimin (clotrimazole) cream [over the counter] may help. Sometimes systemic antifungal therapy, prescribed by your doc, is needed. Make sure you wash towels in hot water and if possible bleach. This infection is spread on clothing & towels. ...Read more

Seb der: Unfortunately there is no test to find out if a food is triggering your hair loss or the seborrhea. To my knowledge there is no known connection. About the best you can do is to log a food diary in order to verify an association by trial and error. Alternative you could explore other causes of hair loss. ...Read more
