How can I reverse the effects of sitting on a chair 8 hours per day?

Move while sitting: You can still move while you're sitting. Stretch your arms, shoulders, neck, and legs while seated. It'll keep the blood circulating to your muscles and may help prevent fatigue. Every 90 minutes to 2 hours get up and move around, even if it's just to walk around the building or walk up a flight of stairs. Or you can use a resistance band either seated or standing. ...Read more

What will the long term effects of gout on my running program. I run about 5k four times a week.?

What will the long term effects of gout on my running program. I run about 5k four times a week.?

None should occur!: Gout is completely remmitible. You should be on a uric acid lowering drug (s), and one pill of Colchicine per day at a minimum. Nsaids and steroids (by injection or orally) are given for pain and acute inflammation. Afterwards, the need to lower uric acid is lifelong, and if managed properly, it should not affect sporting activities, provided joint damage is not significantly present. ...Read more

I walk on the treadmill every day for an hour at 4.1 mph. I've read that long slow  walking leads to weight gain because of muscle loss. Why?

Exercise: FirstA959~ weight loss is the result of negative calorie intake wrt work output (exercise). So, if you take in 3000cal/day and expend 3500cal/day the 500 burned = weight loss. As a guide the exercise must be > your baseline activity, and must be significant and protracted. If you are morbidly obese walking 4.1mph for 30- 60 mins is significant and wont cause weight gain.EXERCISE ! ...Read more

I run 4 miles in the am then 30 minutes kickboxing and 1 hour of lifting at night. How many days can I do this before needing a day of rest?

I run 4 miles in the am then 30 minutes kickboxing and 1 hour of lifting at night. How many days can I do this before needing a day of rest?

6 days but: You really should only weight lift every other day, or you won't get as much benefit and more likely to get injured. When you stress your muscles, you actually make tiny tears in the muscle fibers and when they heal, they get stronger. You can do aerobic exercise every day, but it's better to mix it up, or else take one or two days off a week to rest. Alternate run/bike for example. ...Read more

Was buspar (buspirone) 3x day - 15 mg total.  caused bad twitching of the muscles & limb jerking.  How long will this side effect last after getting off the med!

See MD: About 2/3 of BuSpar (buspirone) dose is out of the system in 24 hours. If you still have muscle twitching and jerking of your limbs after 2 - 3 days days off BuSpar (buspirone), you should see your prescribing MD to evaluate without delay. Hope this helps. ...Read more

I do kapalbhati pranayama every morning for 30 minutes at the rate of 50 to 60 strokes per minute with medium force. Can this cause hernia in future?

No answer, but...: Your concern is excessive at this time since we are not born equal physically leading to a great difference among all individuals in the strength and structures of abdominal muscles; that is why someone will never get inguinal hernia despite participating in strenuous physical activities lifelong, someone may develop it even without doing any physical straining, and many in between. so, keep on... ...Read more

My job forces me to sit in front of the monitor or laptop screen for more than 8 hours a day. Is it better to wear a powerless glass (zero power) to reduce the impact?

My job forces me to sit in front of the monitor or laptop screen for more than 8 hours a day. Is it better to wear a powerless glass (zero power) to reduce the impact?

Glare: My assumption is that you're either talking about cutting down glare or you were told that computer screens were "bad for you." No study has linked computer screens to poor eye health other than getting some dry eye by keeping them open longer than usual. You can cut down glare by putting of those filtering screens over the screen. No need for glasses here. Hope that helps. ...Read more

I just sat down on a dining chair legs sort of crossed for 4 hours while using laptop. I did get up a couple of times to eat etc. DVT?  I'm Pregnant.

Whoa!: If just sitting still caused DVTs, everyone would be dead soon, pregnant or not. That said, is it "absolutely impossible" to get a DVT as you described? No--just extremely unlikely. DVTs are UNCOMFORTABLE--that is what prompts Dr visit. Do you have a new pain in your leg? Is it hot compared to other one? Swollen (or more so) compared to other one? If no to these, then I would not worry. ...Read more

I am on a low carb diet, every other day I do 40 minutes on a cross trainer and 30 minutes on a bike... Will i loose much weight this way? Or will it tone?

I am on a low carb diet, every other day I do 40 minutes on a cross trainer and 30 minutes on a bike... Will i loose much weight this way? Or will it tone?

No way to tell: It depends upon your total caloric expenditure versus your intake. It takes 3, 500 calories to gain or lose a pound. Calculate your intake minus expenditure -- if the number is negative, divide 3500 by that number and the result is the number of days it will take to lose a pound. Focused exercise will, in general, help to tone you up, but there are many other variables. ...Read more
