Crap in a can--UGG!!: Did you read the ingredients? Water, artificial flavor and acid. Not only will too much rot your gut, but you'll destroy your teeth in the process. Not enough medically useful ingredients to do good; plenty of stuff to do bad. If you are working out. Drink water. Period. If I had to guess, i'd estimate that close to 80% of the dental disease I treat is from some marketed product to the-unaware. ...Read more

I need to stop snoring I have a problem with snoring, I have tried the following...I only drink water after dinner, I don't smoke before bed, and I am currently using the nasal strips but my relationship with my girlfriend is falling apart because I snore

I need to stop snoring I have a problem with snoring, I have tried the following...I only drink water after dinner, I don't smoke before bed, and I am currently using the nasal strips but my relationship with my girlfriend is falling apart because I snore

Snoring,: Snoring, though frequently associated with sleep apnea, is not always amenable to treatment by an oral appliance. Snoring is frequently due to elongation of the soft palate (roof of mouth) or due to the loss of tone of this tissue. Most treatments are aimed at shortening or stiffing the soft palate.

Oral appliances are usually designed to position the lower jaw forward to open the lower airway and typically do not address the tissues of the roof of the mouth.

An assessment by a obstructive sleep apnea team should be performed to rule out the presence of sleep apnea which sometimes is associated with snoring. These teams are usually affiliated with a regional medical center / hospital. They will perform a history and physical to determine if there are any medical / pharmacological causes for your symptoms. You will be asked to undergo a sleep study to determine the presence of sleep apnea and to determine its severity and to further rule out causes. An apnea / hypopnea index will be determined.

Depending upon the severity of the sleep apnea you will be offered treatment solutions by this team. Usually a trial of CPAP is encouraged. Occasionally an oral appliance or surgery may be recommended.

There are many types of oral sleep apnea appliances, each having their proponents. Typically, if an oral appliance is required, it is custom fabricated by either a dentist or oral and maxillofacial surgeon. You should seek care from a dentist / oral and maxillofacial surgeon who is board certified by their respective specialties and has an affiliation with your sleep apnea team. ...Read more

How many litres of water we should take daily ideally? Is drinking water just before going to bed at night is good/bad for health?

WATER INTAKE: It's not what goes in that's most important, it's what volume of urine you make. A non-stone forming person with normal heart should make 1-1.5 liters of urine per 24 hr. If you're a stone former this # is 2-2.5l/24 hrs. To prevent stone formation. Hot days will take more and inactive days will take less. When you drink it only determines when it will come out. ...Read more

Over hydration and too much consumption over a short period can lead to low sodium in your blood stream & b harmful. ...Read more

Is it bad to drink cold water after you spent all night crying? I don't want to sound dumb. What are you supposed to and not supposrd to do.

Is it bad to drink cold water after you spent all night crying? I don't want to sound dumb. What are you supposed to and not supposrd to do.

Cold hides thirst: If somebody has been crying so hard to the point that they are dehydrated (either from tear flow, or drinking fluids and eating) replenishing hydration can be important. Cold water will start to replenish hydration, but it will take away thirst, sometimes too quickly. Room temperature water does not artificially hide thirst. Be sure to address the causes of the crying and feel better soon. ...Read more

Is it bad to drink out of a plastic water bottle after it has sat out for awhile and gotten warm? I've heard it is.

Is it bad to drink out of a plastic water bottle after it has sat out for awhile and gotten warm? I've heard it is.

Probably bad because: Plastic water bottles contain hazardous chemicals and trace amounts leach into the water. When bottles sit in the water that will increase the leaching of these chemicals into the water (though the common idea that dioxins leach into the water is a myth). I advise not using plastic water bottles. It is far better to use glass or steel water bottles filled with filtered tap water. See comment:. ...Read more

Is it bad to drink 2 glasses of water at night? Wife says it will overload the kidneys n must avoid drinking too much water at night

Water and kidneys: If your kidneys are healthy the 2 glasses of water taken at night will not harm them, although you may find that you will need to get up before morning to urinate. Your kidneys work 24/7 and to them there is no difference between 2 glasses of water at night or 2 glasses of water at any other time. ...Read more
