Is this schizophrenia if somebody keeps talking about the government, I mean all the time, really?

Paranoid Delusions?: Paranoid delusions are often seen as a symptom in schizophrenia. A person talking non-stop about the government may just be exercising their first amendment right. This is a good example where a single symptom does not define a disorder or make a diagnosis. You may be annoyed by this individual, but there are other necessary details required before we can diagnose schizophrenia. ...Read more

Human growth hormone, what's the truth behind hgh? Are there really injections for that, if so what are results /consequences of the injections?

GH deficiency: Hgh is available, but should only be used for gh deficiency, and only in youth. Trials with gh in adults have not proven any real functional benefit. If you are a 19 yo woman, you should be making lots of gh still, and should not need any more. Too much gh can stimulate "growth" where you don't want it, eg tumors. ...Read more

What is the current scientific thought about episiotomies?

What is the current scientific thought about episiotomies?

Often useful: Though not always. There are anti-episiotomy militants online; I've looked at their stuff and it's emotional and inflammatory rather than scientific. When you hear a routine medical procedure that often prevents a woman being lacerated from her vagina to her anus described by activists as "violence" by wicked physicians, you know this is a personal agenda rather than real science. ...Read more

What's the difference between natural hormones and synthetic hormones in treating menopause symptoms? There is so much information about the different kinds of hormone therapy for menopause that it's confusing to me. Is there a difference between natural

NO!: The estrogen receptors in your body cannot distinguish between the two, therefore the response is the same. Be careful regarding "natural" hormones, particularly if they are compounded at a pharmacy since you do not know what you are really taking. There was a large recall from a compounding pharmacy today for progesterone, so this can really happen. Your body will not know the difference. ...Read more

Can anyone explain me in brief about binaural beats. How this phenomenon is produced and what are its benefits?

Can anyone explain me in brief about binaural beats. How this phenomenon is produced and what are its benefits?

This produces a subjective feeling of calm, controlled serenity--things long-term meditators experience. Very good for anxiety disorders... ...Read more
