What is the effect of drinking red wine? Also I find it difficult to stool the following morning because the stool was very strong, what caused it

Two questions: Red wines contain tannins which enhance taste. There are about 50+ varietals. Some people do not tolerate wines for various reasons. Hard stools, if related to the wine are likely caused by dehydration. Wine acts as a diuretic, causing you to urinate more, and because you are imbibing the wine you may reduce your water intake. Of course, your stool issue may not have anything to do with wine. ...Read more

Its ok to drink whey protein with out exercise? Just only push up. No side effect when you drink with out exercise?

Yes it's fine: Protein drinks typically have less than 30g protein per serving, which is perfectly safe as a snack or meal supplement.

How do you treat constipation for a 12-year-old? He has not had a bowel movement for three days. He took two doses of "little tummies" OTC medicine the first day with no effect. He's been drinking juice and water more than usual. He recently allowed me

The: The way I treat constipation in my clinic is to use a medication called polyetheylene glycol (miralax). It is now available over the counter. The nice thing about this medication is that it melts and softens the hard stool making it much easier to pass. You may want to try 1 cap full or packet in a large glass of water and see how that goes. You should not use more than 1 dose a day without speaking to your child's doctor. Below I've linked to a website with information on this medication. If constipation becomes a more chronic problem for him, then you should make an appointment with his doctor. Good luck! ...Read more

Is there any side effects or bad effect to the body drinking whey protein?

Is there any side effects or bad effect to the body drinking whey protein?

Controversial: There is much debate about whey protein, derived from dairy, regarding its effects on health. I don't believe one should get protein from dairy and prefer non-animal sources like quinoa, nuts and beans. I also like wild salmon for protein and mostly healthy fats. Books like the china study demonize whey and claim it causes cancer and autoimmune disease. No one knows for sure so use other sources. ...Read more
