How do I get a swimmer/surfer/skate- like body?

How do I get a swimmer/surfer/skate- like body?

Aerobic fitness: The "swimmer's body" is lean and has well-defined muscles that are not hypertrophied as in a steroid user or intense weight lifter. You'll need to eat as little as you can, or at least moderately, consistent with getting enough protein, while you exercise intensely burning calories; exercise will also help you control appetite. "swimmer's body" is the fittest. Good luck. ...Read more

My monther is a person who surfer from elderly constipation. How to do with it?thank you.

Define problem pls: How do you define "constipation?" a medical definition is bowel infrequency (less than one bowel movement every 3-4 days). I know of no patient who died due to bowel infrequency. On the other hand, an obstructed colon that ruptures, leaks, infarcts can be life threatening if the obstruction is not relieved. Is mother's abdomen distended, is there bleeding, weight loss, pain; acute or chronic? ...Read more

What is the procedure like for exostosis (surfer's ear)?

What is the procedure like for exostosis (surfer's ear)?

Ear Roto-rooter: Surfer's ear results in hearing loss as the bony growth closes the ear canal down for business. In order to restore hearing, surgery is required in the form of canaloplasty, a painful orgy of power tools within your head requiring an average two-month recovery. Shunning doctor's orders of a high and dry healing process is ill-advised and could land you back in surgery! ...Read more

Swimmers Ear: Amoxicillin is not the appropriate treatment for otitis externa (swimmers ear). Staying out of the water is part of the treatment but you may need ear drops. I like ciprodex which is part steroid and part antibiotic. Your swimmer's ear may never have resolved in the first place. I would advise you see a doctor and have them look in your ear to see if you still have it. ...Read more
