I smoked weed for the first time in 2yrs and I feel so guilty. Im 135lbs how can I get this out of my system fast so I can breastfeed my son again?

Feed him now!: In a risk v benefit analysis, it's better for you to go ahead and breast-feed your son. He needs the nutrients, immunity benefits, touch and bonding more than you need to worry about some trace of his exposure to cannabinoids ...Read more

Every time i take a hot bath, i get very dizzy, vertigo, and sometimes i even pass out.I can't figure out why! I am from az, so I am used to heat. Ideas?

Every time i take a hot bath, i get very dizzy, vertigo, and sometimes i even pass out.I can't figure out why! I am from az, so I am used to heat. Ideas?

Dehydration: I see you have a history of bulimia. If you aren't hydrated enough (or if you are a person with an overall low blood pressure), the heat of the bath can make your vein dilate and the blood sink to your legs, or causing a "vasovagal" reaction. Maybe drink more fluids before a bath, and try to take baths that aren't quite so hot. ...Read more

When i go out ... After a while i get so tired. . Basically i lose my energy!  what should I eat in order to have enough energy? Any vitamins?

Hard to say but...: This is impossible to answer as there are many possible causes; i advise an evaluation by a holistic md- check thyroid ; adrenals, etc.. If you get tired only when you go out, what do you do when you go out? It may be what you should not eat. Most restaurant food (fast or not) is loaded with gmo's, cooked in gmo corn, soy or canola oil- see http://bit.Ly/19xax7e you can try a good multivitamin. ...Read more

On february 23 of 2011nowhere I went to the hospital for having low potassium. And im fully recovered, but when I drink soda I start to get dizzy why?

Unclear to me why: This should not be related to history of low potassium although you need yearly lab to make sure that you do not have that again. Why is being dizzy with soda intake? Could it be related to abdominal distension or ulcer disease? Unclear. Need to check with a doctor who knows your medical history and your vital signs to be able to get a better answer. ...Read more

Dizziness?: As my colleague said, shortness of breath is potentially life threatening and demands prompt attention. If you mean dizziness though, you're probably dehydrated. First the pre-op starvation, then possibly a large amount of fat removal, with possibly insufficient rehydration can, and frequently does lead to some dizziness due to a lowered blood pressure. Rehydrate with electrolyte-containing fluids. ...Read more

Im not a everyday oxygen person, but lately i have been getting out of breathe fast when i take off the oxygen i start to wheeze y is this?

Asthma: In general, the most common causes of shortness of breath are either heart disease or lung disease. Although there are many reasons for a person to wheeze, with your history of asthma it may just be your asthma flaring up especially as the season begins to change from summer to fall. I think the bigger question is why are you requiring oxygen in the first place? Talk to your doctor about this. ...Read more

Anxiety disorder: These sound more like anxiety events. Often the heart with beat strong and fast and you will feel weak and faint and must fully relax. It is worry that is causing the events, and the events that cause worry. This can be a vicious cycle. You may benefit from supportive counseling. ...Read more
