Sir my  homeopathy dr says duchenne muscular dystrophy is curable with homeopathy should  l trust him?

Quackery & delusions: If that "doctor" really could do that, he'd win the Nobel Prize in Medicine. Homeopathy is not medicine. Practitioners have no real medical knowledge. Would you want your MD to practice 214-year-old medicine on you? Because that’s when homeopathy was invented. Join the 21st century.

Can i drink yogi honey lavender stress relief tea that contains chamomile,lemon balm ,and lavender with 1mg of ativan tonight?

Both the tea and Ativan may make you sleepy so you'll be more sleepy and relaxed if you take the tea and Ativan together than Ativan alone, but it is safe to take both. But maybe if you take the tea you could get by with 0.5 mg of Ativan. The tea is healthier for you than Ativan. ...Read more

Med books all say smthng different re sperm lifespan.1 book says max is 4 dys, 1 book says max is 5 dys, 1 bk says max is 6 days, another book says max is 7 days. Which book is correct? Very confused!

It's all the same: In real life, in one woman, nobody knows exactly when all the sperm are dead, when the egg actually pops out of an ovary, when an egg is fertilized, nor when a fertilized egg implants into the uterus... All dates are estimates, so 4 days = 5 days = 6 days = 7 days. They are all the same day in real life. As long as the husband is the only source of sperm, none of this matters. ...Read more
