Help please! is aspirin good for you or bad for you?

It depends: Aspirin is very good for heart attack prevention. It is also an antiinflammatory. The problem is that the incidence of stomach problems including severe bleeding is high with aspirin. Since other antiinflammatories tend to be more gentle on the stomach we usually prescribe those instead. Aspirin thins blood more so than other anti-inflammatories as well. Discuss options with your physician. ...Read more

What is a good meal to have for breakfast that will give me a good start for the day?

What is a good meal to have for breakfast that will give me a good start for the day?

Balanced...: Good balanced meal with adequate protein. Protein will help keep you satisfied, and prevent quick return of hunger. Some carb is good to help fuel brain, and fat is necessary, but not excessive. I like a small omelet made from egg whites + one egg for a little yolk (fat), with whole grain toast, maybe a little fruit. About 400-500 cal. Quick stuff (donuts, pastries etc) will have you craving more. ...Read more

What is a good idea for nausea?

No good idea: There are many causes of nausea and most are non-specific. It is not clear what you mean by a "good idea for nausea". For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually.

What is a good way to deal with stress when you have a baby and have no more time for yourself?

What is a good way to deal with stress when you have a baby and have no more time for yourself?

Build it in: Children do change everything and "me" time does diminish. Build it in like homework or appointments. When the baby sleeps (and you are not exhausted) then do something for yourself. Find babysitters you can trust and begin to have a little time for yourself. As the children grow, maintain that time. My mother had a hair appointment every week! another mom went to the movies once a week alone. ...Read more

Is it ok to give your child a good old fashioned beating as a last resort to get them to do what you want?

Is it ok to give your child a good old fashioned beating as a last resort to get them to do what you want?

Absolutely not!: The only thing a child learns from being beaten by a parent is not to trust that parent for support or love. That and maybe it's okay to intimidate and hurt others when they're less powerful than you. Many of us have learned these lessons as kids -- but do you really want to pass that on? Please consider some parenting classes or groups where you can learn healthier options. Be well. ...Read more
