Should be okay: As long as you are healthy and haven't had major surgery, such as a gastric bypass, your stomach has a tremendous ability to stretch. That being said, it is not recommended to do this often. It will eventually stay enlarged, resulting in difficulty emptying the stomach and slowing down your digestion.
If you were going to have a problem, it would have happened by now. ...Read more

In terms of aesthetics, what is the best type of crown for a tooth, lava zirconia?

In terms of aesthetics, what is the best type of crown for a tooth, lava zirconia?

Consult your dentist: It is important to discuss the individual patient's needs for the type of crown with the dentist. Needs vary based on not only aesthetics of the smile but also on the function of the tooth involved. The health of the gingiva or gum may play a role as well as the height of the remaining tooth. I work with dental colleagues in the treatment of cleft lip and palate patients but am not a dentist. ...Read more

Laurie found a yellow mushroom in my garden and ate 2 bites. We think its leucocoprinus birnbaumii. Is this poisonous? What should we do?

Laurie found a yellow mushroom in my garden and ate 2 bites. We think its leucocoprinus birnbaumii. Is this poisonous? What should we do?

Possibly poisonous: Leucocoprinus birnbaumii is considered "possibly poisonous" or "poisonous" by various experts. The most likely symptom is stomach pain/cramping and nausea/vomiting but 2 bites are unlikely to cause serious problems. One should never eat wild mushrooms unless they are willing to bet their life that they are safe. I advise you take the homeopathic remedy nux vomica and call poison control as well. ...Read more

My left inner labia is a bit red and swollen? Only hurts when I touch it, what could this be and what are some remedies?

Inner labial pain: Generalized redness and swelling here can be due to minor irritation from tight clothing, feminine care products or a mild yeast infection. Wear comfortable cotton panties and don't use perfumed products near the area. If there is a whitish discharge, it is safe to apply an OTC yeast treatment for a few days. Localized swelling that worsens or drains pus must be checked by a doctor promptly. ...Read more

Those outside the republic of Texas tend to show improvement within 4-6 weeks if they are at an effective dose, are being treated for major depression, and if they are among the 50-60% or so who are "responders". The blood level in most 1x/day medicines is reached within 3-5 days. The blood level is not correlated with Tx response. ...Read more
