My so Joseph will be 13 on Dec 9, and I wad wondering if it would be ok to give him emergency-c,?

Yes: Emergen-C is perfectly safe to give to 12 year olds. The main ingredient is 1000 mg of Vitamin C. While this exceeds the recommended daily intake, there is evidence that the optimal dose is much higher and 1000 mg is a reasonable daily dose for most people. See www. Lef.

After suffering a seizure people thought she was dead & dug her grave. However she awoke after 4 days. She was paralyzed for 3 years. She imputed her recovery from paralysis to saint joseph. In her autobiography she wrote "i took for my advocate and lord the glorious saint joseph. ...Read more

Joseph is a healthy 9 year old. He coughed up specks of blood in his sputum first thing this morning. What is the cause?

See Your Doctor: 9 yr old, "coughed specks blood this morning". It is important to determine if the blood was actually from the lungs vs. Upper respiratory tract. There is no other data given however sinus congestion/throat clearing over night can result in cough & can produce flecks of blood. It is important to have your child checked to make this determination. See your doctor for correct diagnosis & treatment. ...Read more

Anxiety/BP med?: Some folks develop a habit of coughing from habit and anxiety, especially if it is a "non-productive" or no phlegm cough. Psychologist can help. It may also be due to a blood pressure med but please see you doc and don't go off any medicine w/out checking w/him or her. The very best to you. ...Read more

Defer to the Doctor: The word "hole' is ambiguous and incomplete for any kind of medical description. If physicians have seen it and have pronounced it 'okay' (again not in any way a medical term) then there is little we can add to this description as written. ...Read more

It: It is very difficult in an open from such as this to answer your specific question. So I can not do that. What I can tell you is that a laceration on a finger that crosses the creases or folds at a certain setoff angles will initially not sam to affect the finger but with regular healing lead to a contracture (or tightening) of the scar and creases. The case of a laceration and missing skin that is closed tightly, this may occur too. One way to prevent this tightening is to "break up" the scar with additional inciosns at special angles to the laceration or scar and or add skin of skin graft. Even in this situation with a well applied and oriented skin graft and a well done surgical release of a tight scar, further tightening an contracture can occur. So it may seem that initially a finger feels loose, but later feels tighter. One has to ask, "what if the skin graft wsa nver done? " and the answer may be that if it were not done that the finger would feel even worse than it does now.



If someone has a result of a procedure that they are not happy with, the best thing is to go back to that doctor or seek the advance of another and see if anyitng else can be or needs to be done rather than question the need for the first procedure. Bu hopefully by reading the previous paragraph you you understand the complexity of this situation and that while initially a finger may seem looser, it can tighten up just by the direction of the scar that forms.

Finally there are other factors, general health, compliance, motion, pain, smoking, alcohol, genetics and many other factors that affect scar and scar tissue formation. Some are prone to keloids, others to dupuytrens contracture. Some have subtle arthritis in a joint adjacent to a scar while others have a concurrent joint injury (a sprain) that leads to increased stiffness ...Read more

I am 23 years old. Will I grow more inches taller at this age if I practice stretching exercises? I f yes. For how many minutes must I do them?

No: Bone growth occurs at a part of the bone called the growth plate (near the ends of the bones). The growth plates "close" (basically disappear) in men between the ages of 18-21. After that time there is no way to grow taller. Stretching may improve your posture to help you stand more straight but it is not possible to grow any taller. ...Read more

Is it an acceptable practice to perform cardio exercises (about 20-30 minutes) on fasting days when going through an alternate-day fasting program?

Carefully: It is acceptable. It does need to be done with mindfulness. An example of this is in professional football players of muslim faith who practiced during ramadan where they fast from sun up to sun down. Often practices were two times a day. No ill effects were noted. Having said this choosing a time when exercise can be done when heat/ humidity is low is preferable. Hydrate well days off fast. ...Read more
