Juice diet: Check out the movie - fat. Sick and nearly dead. It's an australian documentary that follows a 300 pound guy who lost more than 100 pounds following the juice diet. Great movie. The web site is jointhereboot. Com. But watch the movie first! Read more

If my child is on antibiotics, can he receive vaccination at his "well-child" visit or should we plan to go back after his cipro (ciprofloxacin) is done? How long off

If my child is on antibiotics, can he receive vaccination at his "well-child" visit or should we plan to go back after his cipro (ciprofloxacin) is done? How long off

Abx don't interfere: The presence of antibiotics will not alter a child's response to vaccines. Twenty or more years ago we often deferred the vaccines if a kid had a fever due the potential added stress of expected fever with the old pertussis vaccine. Todays vaccines are so free of issues that we seldom need to delay their use. Read more

I took Plan B and I am nursing. Will my baby technically get this pill as well since I'm nursing her?

I took Plan B and I am nursing. Will my baby technically get this pill as well since I'm nursing her?

No harm: Plan B contains a medication called levonorgestrel. Evidence indicates that levonorgestrel does not adversely affect the composition of milk, the growth and development of the infant or the milk supply. Expert opinion holds that the risks of progestin-only contraceptive products are acceptable for nursing mothers at any time postpartum. If you want a non hormonal contraceptive choice, use condoms Read more

How long should I breast feed? How long should I plan to breastfeed my baby? I know people that have only done it for a few months, and others who have gone well over a year.

How long should I breast feed? How long should I plan to breastfeed my baby? I know people that have only done it for a few months, and others who have gone well over a year.

Breastfeeding: Breastfeeding has numerous benefits for mother and baby that are very well proven. For mom, it promotes weight loss (burns up to 600 calories per day), bonding, is much cheaper and more convenient than formula (free and no bottle cleanup). For babies, breast feeding reduces the rate of infections (ear infections, colds, etc), reduces the chance of obesity and diabetes later in life, just to name a few. I say all that to encourage you and others to breast feed. As for how long, the aap (american academy of pediatrics) recommends at least 1 year of breast feeding. However, if that isn't possible due to social factors (work schedule, difficulty with supply, etc.), then the longer the better...6 months is better than 3 months, 3 months is better than 1 month. However, aiming for a year is a good goal...Not coincidentally, that is the time we recommend changing over from formula to 2% or whole milk anyway. One note, if you exclusively breastfeed, you should talk to your doctor about vitamin d supplementation for yourself and the baby. Read more

I took Plan B 5-6days after unprotected sex how well will it work and before the pill I was throwing up does this relate to me maybe be making a baby

I took Plan B 5-6days after unprotected sex how well will it work and before the pill I was throwing up does this relate to me maybe be making a baby

Not likely & maybe: Always take medications as directed. Plan b and other emergency contraceptive pills must be used within 72 hours of unprotected sex. It's most effective when used in the 1st 24 hours. After 3 days, effectiveness falls off to 50% or so, so you may very well be pregnant. If it's been 4 weeks since your last menstrual period, take a home pregnancy test. Don't forget to get check out for stds. Read more

I am 5 days away from having a baby, what is a good diet plan to follow? And I will not be breast feeding so is there certain vitamins I should take?

Veggie-rich, consider: I recommend a diet rich in organic fruits & veggies, nuts & seeds, esp. Green veggies that are rich in magnesium. Avoid GMO foods- see http://bit. Ly/19XAX7E Continue your prenatal vit. PLEASE consider breastfeeding- even only a few weeks protects your baby from many serious illnesses & has life-long health benefits- if you love your baby give it this irreplaceable gift!

Hi. At which age must a child speak well.?

Hi. At which age must a child speak well.?

Intelligibility to: Non-caretakers who do not know the context of the child's verbalizations goes like this: 50% intelligibility at age 2, 75% intelligibility at age 3, 90-100% intelligibility at age 4. Delays in language acquisition, the verbalization of ideas, confer a high risk of reading disorder at school age. Delays in articulation or speech, the motor aspect of talking, do not increase the risk of dyslexia. Read more

Why is my child's jra worse when she is sick or not feeling well?

Why is my child's jra worse when she is sick or not feeling well?

Yes: Infections are a prime cause of flares of jia/jra (and many other autoimmune diseases as well). Activating or "turning on" the immune system during many infections results in the production of chemical signalling molecules in the body that likely also cause the bad or "confused" white blood cells to become more active and attack the joints. Stress can also alter immune function and trigger flares. Read more

What happens at a junior high well check for a student? How do you prepare the child?

What happens at a junior high well check for a student? How do you prepare the child?

11 year well check: At the doctors office, an 11 year old well visit begins usually with the nurse checking height, weight, vision and hearing. Then the doctor answer questions, and examine your child. In the US, 2 vaccines are generally given TDAP which is tetanus booster with pertussis and diptheria required for 6th grade. The second vaccine is for meningitis. There should also be a discussion about HPV vaccine. Read more

My child seems generally well until he has a coughing fit. He coughs so hard he pukes and has a hard time catching his breath. Then fine again.

My child seems generally well until he has a coughing fit. He coughs so hard he pukes and has a hard time catching his breath. Then fine again.

He could be sick: Or he may have an allergy, or he could have ge reflux. Or even reacting to particulates on his airway surfaces. There are so many causes of cough it would be best to have an in person evaluation by a skilled pediatrician. If he cannot be evaluated, then I would make sure any smokers smoke outside, place a hepa filter, and a vaporizer where he sleeps. Keep him away from cats and dogs until well. Read more
