R there any massages, exercises, foods, herbs, etc tht rly make breasts grow? Or look large? I have small ugly breasts but I don't want to have surgery
While media promotes large breasts, many find small breasts attractive.
Breasts are mostly fat, so when one gains weight breast size tends to increase. Also consider a herb from thailand, Puereria mirifica, which has phytoestrogens & is widely promoted to increase breast size. There is some research showing it really works &it appears to reduce risk of breast cancer! See http://tinyurl. Com/kottk9n ...Read more

Muscle building: Deep squats, walking lunges with weights and hip thrusts will all help to build gluteal muscles if done properly and supplemented with increased protein/calorie intake. Fat will also increase the apparent size of your gluteus muscles. The key is to add muscle without losing too much fat and this requires adequate caloric intake in addition to moderate to heavy weight lifting. ...Read more

I have a small bulge on my upper right side under a rib cage. It comes and goes and it is painful to touch. Usually it happens after exercise.
The best advice I can offer is to get a history and physical examination by a good doctor.
It may be a hernia, the chance of this would increase if you've had an operation in the area. It may even be a normal variation of standard anatomy.
The best way to evaluate it is with a physical examination. Ask the doctor to examine you while you simulate the circumstances of its occurrence. ...Read more

Nature-Nurture: Is an on-going controversy. Are we shaped by our genes or by our lifestyle is the question. Many researchers believe we are a product of both and less at the mercy of our genes than previously though. Eating well and moderate exercise will help muscle development to the degree that your genes allow. More protein in your diet will help. See your doc first. ...Read more

Knuckle cracking: Although knuckle-cracking has never been shown to cause arthritis, it is possible to strain ligaments when you pull on the fingers so hard. The cracking sound is from an air bubble that pops. It is a sign that you pulled too hard. Excessive hand exercises may just aggravate the soreness. Leaving your hands alone except for normal activities will eventually reduce pain. ...Read more
