I have bronchitis &am taking Mucinex (guaifenesin) to help keep coughs productive. Can I drink tumeric milk to help as well while taking Mucinex (guaifenesin), or just one of them?

Cough meds: AngelaM543 ~ cough meds and antibiotics to treat bronchitis is a well guarded urban myth that the Pharma world keep going with great positive effect on their bottom line and next to no effect on you, and lots of s/effects in some cases. Mucinex (guaifenesin) won't harm you, and it will happily do very little for your cough as well. STREAM inhalation probably does as much. Maybe more. Tumeric milk? Well.....?? ...Read more

Help docs, is gatorade healthy when working out? Should I drink before or after

Gatorade: ...just tastes good, but it probable no better than regular water... There are some electrolytes ('salts' and sugars) in Gatorade, but it is often much more sweet than good for you.
It is basically the same a drinking soda; it is better to hydrate with water both during and after- to wash out the waste products of muscles from working out and maybe dilute Gatorade 75% if you enjoy the taste.. ...Read more

What would be healthier to drink - diet coke or gatorade?

What would be healthier to drink - diet coke or gatorade?

Diet soda: My vote would be gatorade if done in moderation. There are studies that have shown that people who drink alot of soda are obese even if it is diet. The absolute right answer would be water. I usually tell my patients that if they eliminate liquid calories from their diet, that alone will help them drop significant pounds. Liquids pass through your stomach faster and do not keep you full. ...Read more
