I have a strong cold? What do I do?

I have a strong cold? What do I do?

Not antibiotics.: Rest and lots of fluids. There are no antibiotics that will do anything, since he common cold is caused bt a virus. Ibuprophen and over the counter cold meds help some people, but make sure you read the instructions and warning labels very carefully. I personally use sterile saline washes in my nose to help. If your symptoms get markedly worse, or don't improve in about a week, see your doctor. ...Read more

My child gained 23 pounds in 16 months but only grew 2 inches dr won't do test  I'm concerned so what do I do. This isn't normal is it?

It would be: good to have all the biometrics meaning age, height, weight, BMI, body composition or lean and fat body mass, These numbers would give a useful set of data from which a better picture could be extracted. What you have provided actually tells me nothing that is of any use in helping to counsel you. Please obtain as many as you can and re-post. Thanks ...Read more

What do you think about primal/paleo diets?

What do you think about primal/paleo diets?

Love Them: If you don't have any major medical problems, or you have been told by your doc that it's ok for you to start this kind of diet, i believe they work great. The medical community is starting to realize that our belief that carbs are an essential part of our diets is not entirely correct. I have personally lost 40 lbs on this type of diet, and feel great. Blood sugar and cholesterol have improved. ...Read more

Root canel - what do I have to do if 80 percent. Broken out?

Root canel - what do I have to do if 80 percent. Broken out?

Discuss options: If your dentist told you that 80% was broken\decayed, the he\she has already seen you and along with the x-ray can discuss your options. If you are making that estimate and without an x-ray, it may well be worse than you think. If the tooth is salvageable, you would need rct, post and crown. Otherwise the best option would most likely be to have the tooth removed and replaced with implant\crown. ...Read more

I found out my girlfriend was lying to me by reading through her emails, what do I do know?

Talk to her about it: People read emails of others frequently and relationships end, then another one begins via some social network connection. When your girlfriend finds out you have been spying on her she will probably feel some anger and resentment. If you want the relationship to survive find a good therapist and start couples counseling. ...Read more
