See your MD: First, you need to eat, so do not starve yourself. It could be your thyroid or some other metabolic condition, like a prolactinoma. It may also be water weight you are retaining in your legs or abdomen which should be checked out. ...Read more

Dr. Phillip Miller what is a support ticker? & Who do I contact to get it?

Support tickler: I am not Dr. Miller, but if you are referring to a Male support tickler, it is a device to maintain an erection and provide the female with increased sexual pleasure during sex. I assume they can be bought on line or in an adult sex toy shop. ...Read more

What are some food items that are usually unhealthy due to added oil but will not be unhealthy when cooked in Phillips air fryer (due to no added oil)?

What are some food items that are usually unhealthy due to added oil but will not be unhealthy when cooked in Phillips air fryer (due to no added oil)?

Not the key: For decades, the "pop" wisdom is that fried foods containing a great deal of this-or-that type of fat are "bad for you" and this actually matters. Especially for the past 15 years, this is extensively questioned and there's even much skepticism about whether we should ever have taught this. I'd urge you to exercise intensively, eat sensibly, stay trim, and not focus too much on food choices. ...Read more

My boy is almost 5 month old, I am feeding him with aveno phillips bottles but its writen 1+ should I change bottle?

No: If he is doing fine with the bottle you are using, he is fine to use that bottle. Quite honestly, I'm surprised someone markets a bottle for 1+, because that is when we like to wean infants from bottle to cup - so I'm not sure why someone would make a bottle aimed at this age group! ...Read more

Batman v Superman: Think Batman v Superman. Or Team Cap vs Team Iron Man.

Is phillips milk of magnesium as good as citrate of magnesia before sigmoidoscopy?

Is phillips milk of magnesium as good as citrate of magnesia before sigmoidoscopy?

Neither?: Many centers do not even recommend a laxative before flexible sigmoidoscopy and simply suggest one (usually 2) prepared enemas (Fleet's) be done within 2 hours before the procedure. It often helps to have a day of clear liquids before. I think most people believe mag citrate is "stronger" than milk of magnesia, (magnesium hydroxide) but, again, neither may be necessary. Good luck! ...Read more

Is phillip's milk of magnesia (magnesium hydroxide) harmful if you put it on your face everyday to control oil?

Is phillip's milk of magnesia (magnesium hydroxide) harmful if you put it on your face everyday to control oil?

Depends: Milk of magnesia (magnesium hydroxide) is full of some good things for skin, like magnesium, and zinc, and it has anti-bacterial properties. It has been mentioned as a way to control acne when it is used as a mask. It works best for oily skin. However, it is very drying, and so can cause problems for people when used too frequently, or if left on too long, or if your skin becomes dryer, or if you are allergic to it. ...Read more

What type of bottle nipple should I get for my 7 weeks baby? She uses Phillips Avent bottles level 1 but I don't know when to start on level 2.

Trial and error: There is no rules on when to alter nipple selection. Nature gives baby no such choice when breast feeding so they figure it out. When bottle feeding you can gather several together and let baby decide which one seems to work well at the time. ...Read more

Dds/dmd: is there any value to j.E. Phillips (dds) blotting technique when brushing my teeth? I'd like all the opinions I can have.

Dds/dmd: is there any value to j.E. Phillips (dds) blotting technique when brushing my teeth? I'd like all the opinions I can have.

Little Value if Any: This technique is too complicated, too time consuming, and minimally useful. The best and simplest technique is to use a soft bristle brush only, place the bristles where the tooth and gum join, then move the brush in circles. Do this on the face side of the tooth and the tongue side uipper and lower. For best results, use a water pik and pulsate the water the same as you brushed. Fast and works. ...Read more

Ate two crab cakes (phillips lump crab that comes from se asia) when 6 weeks pregnant. Anything to worry about with crab from that area?

Not a problem: The seafood from that area is processed and inspected. It then enters the consumer chain and when you get it, cooking should eliminate anything that might make you sick. There is nothing in seafood from that area which would harm your developing baby. ...Read more
