Doctor insights on:
Actually some very: Smart folks smoke mj, but they act very dumb while under the influence. They think they are profound and brilliant, but they really are just stoned. Many not so smart people smoke, and they do not get any brighter afterward. It can be psychoaddictive and can tempt you to smoke and do nothing else. That is indeed not productive, if not dumb. ...Read more
That depends: On how much you smoke over how many years. Count on a month. ...Read more
Brain function: The research is equivocal about actual brain cell loss with use of marijuana.

I have tumor on left temple for a few months... it is 1 inch across and 1/2 inch high. Can I split the skin and take it out my self? Jane van Dis
Try to remove: Depending on age, the most common cause of a large painless nodular lesion of the temple is keratosis. These lesions never bleed since they represent accumulation of skin in layers and at times can be peeled off. Other nodular lesions like an amelanotic nevus would bleed if irritated as would be true of an exophytic squamous malignancy. ...Read more
Thanks dr. Jane van dis, I took the 1st pill around 11 hours after unprotected sex. So how will be the pregnancy chance?
Timing is everything: It looks as if you took the pill very quickly. So your chances at preventing pregnancy are good. Likely you have a 60-75% chance of preventing a pregnancy. This assumes, by the way, that were ovulating when you had the unprotected intercourse, and were going to get pregnant. It's possible that you had no possibility of getting pregnant because no egg was release or available for implantation. ...Read more
Have overpronation & wear orthotics. Need supportive shoes. Do they have to have hi vamp? Mary janes large strap in front near ankle ok?
Good morning doctor I have horrible pain on all my teeth, not decayed. Why and what can I take for relieve. Jane?
You may simply have gingival recession. The roots of our teeth are sensitive to: cold air, cold water, sugar, metal and other objects, etc.
If this is the case, try a desensitizing toothpaste. In fact, try several-they have different formulas and not a single one works for everybody.
In a severe case, a dentist can desensitize your teeth. ...Read more

I have celiac, sjogren's and C4 immune problems. Need surgery -knee and cateract = can it be a problem - worried. Jane?
Cataract surg risks: Risks for small incision surgery has improved significantly over the years. The vast majority of patients have no complications. Immune issues do increase the risk of infection, complications, but closer follow up and an awareness of this risk allows pt & MD to be on top of any unusual post op symptoms, like pain, decrease vision, etc. ...Read more
9 weeks pregnant and constipated. I drink water and gatorade. And Jane been eating bran cereal. Haven't had a normal bowel movement for about a week.
Include more fiber: In diet! Gatorade is mainly sugar, and not so great for electrolyte replacement. There is something with less sugar called Vitamin Water, but what is even safer is coconut water (fresh). That was used in WW2 to treat wounded soldiers IV! In any case, call your OB/GYN for further direction, and eat more cooked greens and veges. Better to use organic steel cut oats, than bran (GMO). ...Read more
Lose weight: Eat healthfully. Try to eat at least 5 servings of vegetables & 4 of fruit per day. Increase nutritional fiber. Avoid refined sugar & junk carbohydrates. Avoid alcohol, sweetened juices, soda & caffeinated beverages. Aim for 7.5 to 8 hrs of sleep / night. Hydrate w at least 64 oz of water / day. Calories burned must > calories consumed. Be physically active with both cardio & weight training. ...Read more
What do you suggest if my child said her last cycle was in june. Is everything ok or should we be concerned?
It depends.: This could be normal, depending on how old your daughter is and when she had her first period. If it is possible she is pregnant, obviously she should be tested for that. Otherwise, it could be secondary to changes in eating, weight loss, exercise level or, if it is within the first 2 years of having her period, a normal occurrence. ...Read more
My DD will be 6 in June and has gained 6.5lbs and grew 2 1/2 inches in a year... That seems like a lot of weight. What do you think! ?
No: That would be unusual.Get a more detailed answer ›
Absolutely: Read up on simple calisthenics and go at them with great intensity and variety. My favorite are "killers" -- stand, drop to pushup position, do a pushup or three, stand up. Keep it up until you can't, do many sets daily. Watch what you eat -- enough lean protein, fruits ; vegetables, and not that much else. What worked for young mr. Wahlberg behind bars will work for you. ...Read more
