What can you do to relieve a stomach ache caused by eating too much junk food.?

Junk food: Well, the obvious answer is not to eat junk food but you already know that. If the sugar load is causing your stomach ache, there isn't anything that will help that.

It will only hurt your body. ...Read more

What causes sudden vomiting? I vomit water, juice, milk, all kinds of food within 1-5 minutes of eating/drinking, sometimes even soon. What causes it?

What causes sudden vomiting? I vomit water, juice, milk, all kinds of food within 1-5 minutes of eating/drinking, sometimes even soon. What causes it?

A primitive reflex: The vomiting reflex is controlled by two units in the brain medulla--one receives nerve impulses from the GI tract, the other is a chemical receptor. Both have nerve connections to not only the GI tract (pharynx, mesenteric vessels, bile ducts) but also from brain corticobulbar areas that mediate smells, sights, & taste. Thus, vomiting apparatus responds to a variety of GI & brain inputs. Get eval ...Read more

Is it unhealthy to drink a large volume of soft drinks, e.g. Coke, Pepsi and eat a lot of junk food like chips?

Is it unhealthy to drink a large volume of soft drinks, e.g. Coke, Pepsi and eat a lot of junk food like chips?

Too much = unhealthy: Not all junk food is the same. Decent junk food is better than the bad junk food. If one is very healthy, meaning he eats healthy natural foods most of the time; exercises well; and has no personal nor family history of diabetes, obesity, high blood pressure, heart disease, or high cholesterol; then small amounts of junk food are ok to eat. Frequent or excess junk food will start these problems. ...Read more

Scientific Rx: You're a grown man now and you need a competent physician not just for this but for your other health issues. Your gilbert's is a non-problem and it's a mistake to be taking 'milk thistle' for it. Enjoying your body and sexuality in private is not a 'condition'. You've gotten scars from your acne being neglected. You'll need prescription-strength rx for it. This is the 21st century. Take charge. ...Read more
