Does Pure Oxygen Cure A Hangover
Ask your neighbors: HealthTap is a website that serves to dispense medical information, not necessarily best buys on water treatments. Best to ask your neighbors as to what they have installed & (dis)like. Of note, when it comes to medicine, there's quick, cheap & good/correct but you can only have 2 out of 3. In other words, if you want good but cheap, it may take a while. ...Read more
Doesn't matter: If that is the only abnormal lab value, it doesn't matter. You don't try to fix the co2 specifically (unless it's severely abnormal in which case you'd probably be in the hospital). Other things like renal or lung function affect the co2. Thiamine won't specifically fix it. ...Read more
Is it true that overdosing vitamin C can really make a person whiter? Is glutathione even effective?
No and yes: Vitamin c is almost impossible to "overdose" on- if you take excessive amounts you stop absorbing it & it has a laxative effect. I have never heard it making anyone "whiter" in any dose. Glutathione is a powerful antioxidant with many health benefits. It can be very beneficial when given iv.It is not well-absorbed orally unless given in liposomal form or as acetyl glutathione-these are effective. ...Read more
A concentration of 0.01 % co is lethal. How is it possible to smoke a cigarette and not die immediately?
Apples to oranges: Your concentration is looking at the measurement in the air that is being breathed. And it makes a great difference the concentration as it exists in the body. Obviously the amount delivered in cigarettes is less than immediately lethal. It does however attach to red blood cells and stays till they die reducing oxygen deliver to the tissues of the body. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I eat almost 30 goji berries a day and acne it has mega doses of vitamin a does that mean I will get toxic overdose? How much goji is too much?
I have a better idea: You're taking a proactive approach to your health, but why not choose something that will actually work? Diet's not the key to managing acne. Anyone telling you that goji berries are especially nutritious, or that acne is best treated "naturally", is misleading you. If topical benzoyl peroxide or retinoic acid haven't cleared you in two weeks, your physician can add something that will. ...Read more
Is fresh lemon water good to drink every day? Is there a limit of how much lemon juice a person can have in a day? How does it effect the body?
Does drinking a small amout (4-6 drops) of another person's urine cause brain damage to a teen boy???
Uh, no...but...why?: Notwithstanding the close to impossible likelihood the urine was highly concentrated with a neurotoxin (in which case the donor would probably be dead) a couple of drops won't do anything. Interestingly, a gazillion years ago, doctors used to taste urine to see if it was sweet. If it was, it had glucose in it, which was suggestive of diabetes mellitus. Thank goodness for urine dipsticks... ...Read more
What does high urine pH 7.5-8.5 that fluctuates a lot mean? Is it bc i drink a lot of water or systemic alkadosis?
Alkalotic urine: Why are you so preoccupied with the ph of your urine? It seems that you are having repeated urine analyses to assess your urine's ph. Water intake does not, per se, make your urine alkalotic. Causes of an alkalotic urine are: urinary tract obstruction, pyloric obstruction, salicylate intoxication, renal tubular acidosis, chronic renal failure and respiratory failure. Do you have one of these? ...Read more

Not Effective: I guess if you're drunk enough, you won't care about your toothache for a while, but alcohol doesn't cure or help a toothache in any significant or long-term way. Your symptoms may subside for a while, but they will definitely come back vehemently in the future. The only way to take care of this problem is to see a dentist. The sooner the better! ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Is it true lcarnitine helps with angina and exercise tolerance? If so does alc provide same benefit? Or does alc affect brain only?
Probably true: There is some evidence that acetyl-l-carnitine helps with exercise tolerance in people with angina. There is minimal evidence that it helps healthy people with exercise however. This issue has not been well studied, so even though there is minimal evidence that it helps, that doesn't mean that it doesn't. Here's a nice summary: http://ods.Od.Nih.Gov/factsheets/carnitine-healthprofessional/. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I've heard a FEW cups of coffee a day is okay, but how much IS that really? Is that 8 ounce cups? Does that include the liquid creamer?
Is it true that mint or peppermint water/tea is great for headaches? Taking butalb- acetamin - caff.
Not that I know.: First, identify what kind of headache you have and what may be underlying cause. Furthermore, your medication can lead to increased and more frequent headaches, "chronic daily headaches", and i would not suggest using this preparation in this day and age. See your doctor and work together, as better approaches are available. ...Read more
