In : In an 8 week study this supplement did not increase fat loss as compared to inactive pill (placebo). Heart rate and blood pressure have been elevated with this agent. It has not been tested beyond 8 weeks in clinical studies. I do not advise that you take this supplement which appears to be neither safe nor effective. See my blog site for more on weight loss. ...Read more

Could be many things: When this happens to my young and otherwise healthy patients, i first start with telling them to get good sleep, have a good breakfast, avoid excess alcohol, and work in at least 20 minutes of aerobic activity daily. If any other symptoms are happening like numbness, pain traveling from the back, or not getting better after a week or two, they should check in with their doctor. ...Read more

Dehydration ...: is a potential factor. But once you rehydrate, which I hope you would have done after two weeks (!), the vomiting should improve. You need to see your primary care doctor for a work up looking for reflux, gastritis, peptic ulcers, etc. Two weeks is TOO LONG for daily vomiting with no other explanation. Good wishes:) ...Read more

Hi. My boyfriend is a 35 yo male with recurring neck pain and headaches. No relief from manual therapies. Concurrent nausea and fatigue. Poor eating.

Would see a doctor: If he is having headaches daily or several times a week, it may be time to see his doctor. Could be anything from tension headaches from tight neck muscles or migraines or even sleep apnea that is not being treated. If symptoms are from headache, doctor may want to start him on a preventative headache medicine or muscle relaxant depending on the cause. Basic blood work may also help. Good luck! ...Read more

Marijuana addiction brings, hot flashes, nausea, dizziness, lightheadedness, poor eating when sober, won't eat all day. Only 18?

See your doctor: If marijuana has taken over your life, and is causing many serious symptoms and problems, and yet you are continuing to use it, then you have a problem and need help.

Easy to explain: It makes you sweat more and move less while sleeping. I'm glad you're eager to make a change. You're still young and probably vigorous. Head down to the local gym or sports center, let others see that you're working hard on your body, and they'll accept you as a friend and support you in your body transformation. A lot more is at stake than just the skin in your groin and neck. Best wishes. ...Read more

It is a matter of wi: You need to create strong will by setting goals and working on them slowly with small changes in your diet and exercise. To change behaviors, it takes one step at a time and keep working on it for 3-4 months. Then it will become a habit. It is a life long discipline, so you have to be patient and set modest goals like cutting out a little bit of food daily so that you can lose 1-2 lbs each month. ...Read more
