Weakness or pain in the shoulder and biceps can be disabling in cases, but usually temporary. Spinal cord injury can occur after surgery in rare cases due to loss of blood supply to cord. Loss of opening created at surgery and recurrence of symptoms. ...Read more

Michael's ultimate detox and cleanse, what to eat during?

Michael's ultimate detox and cleanse, what to eat during?

Don't: At least be careful. This is a mix of cilantro, pumpkin seeds, dandelions etc -- obviously a scam. Your body and your internal organs clean themselves naturally. Anyone telling you to drink something weird or do something off-the-wall is at best deceived and at worst playing a cruel prank on you -- some of the "health cleanses" on the internet can land you in the intensive care unit. ...Read more

Hello Dr Michael, on my scrotum, I've little bumps and doesn't itch me, it's just there. It happens when I mistakingly used an old shaving stick.

Hello Dr Michael,  on my scrotum, I've little bumps and doesn't itch me, it's just there. It happens when I mistakingly used an old shaving stick.

Most likely,...: ..., these little non-itchy bumps are the hyperactive sebaceous glands of hair follicles, which require no active care. So, just watch and see if they may change and evolve in shape and size over time. If stable, leave them alone. Remember: Shaving may induce inverted hair growth or ingrown hair or razor bumps. Of course, it is hard to make right diagnosis without a direct look. ...Read more

Avoid sugars & carbs: Helpful weight loss diets have natural foods that take time to chew but contain few calories. Examples include carrots, celery, and iceberg lettuce (little/no salad dressing). When shopping for fruits, buy small ones no bigger than a tennis ball, because fruits have sugar. Drinks without calories include water and green tea. A calorie is a calorie, but surely avoid sugar & simple starch calories. ...Read more

Is drinking 60oz distilled water a day dangerous? I am doing the Jillian Michaels Detox for 7 days (lemon, cranberry, dandelion root tea)is it safe?

Is drinking 60oz distilled water a day dangerous? I am doing the Jillian Michaels Detox for 7 days (lemon, cranberry, dandelion root tea)is it safe?

In context.: Drinking 60 oz of water (doesn't have to be distilled) is adequate for hydration. That amount of water, in general, doesn't have any health effects as long as you're healthy otherwise (no kidney disease, &c). However the "detox" plan & its duration isn't generally advisable. Detox is nutritionally deficient & you can get electrolyte problems. Check w/ your doctor before starting any "fad" diets. ...Read more

I seen that a doctor on here named Dr. Andrew Michaels said Anxiety can cause a heart attack. Not all people who have anxiety have one correct? True??

Anxiety & The Heart: Hi German, Anxiety (or chronic anxiety) is what we consider a "psychosocial risk factor" for cardiac disease and potential heart attacks. Other risk factors include work stress, social isolation, chronic anger, Type A behavior, etc. They increase the likelihood of experiencing cardiac events and/or risk for cardiac disease. You can have a heart attack without these but they increase your chances. ...Read more

Is it safe to take 2-b12, 2-b6, 3-lysine, 15000ui of d - vitamins, 4 tbls of crushed flaxseed and also 4 jillian michaels fat burner per day?

Is it safe to take 2-b12, 2-b6, 3-lysine, 15000ui of d - vitamins, 4 tbls of crushed flaxseed and also 4 jillian michaels fat burner per day?

Why do that?: No good reason to be taking that combo of stuff. Don't know doses of b6 (too much- nerve damage); 15k iu of d (d2 or d3-different dosing) daily is too much (liver toxic, etc). Jillian michaels product at least says it has 100mg caffeine/dose (from guarana). You have no idea how much of anything else is in the proprietary blend. Can't recommend this regimen-it's wack. ...Read more
