Avatar m tn I had blood taken last week, and the symptoms are from my Hepatitis. I have an appointment with my doctor this Friday, and I'm scared. I worked at the Men's detox years ago, and have seen the effects of this disease first hand. I have a really lousy diet and have been compulsive about red meat and Pepsi. I am going to do my bets to get better. Any thoughts on nutrition and holistic treatments I might try. I am on Medi-Care, so I doubt they will fund interferon.

535904 tn?1213468238 i'm like you, if i eat unhealthy, i worry about my heart. there are many studies that have been done on nutrition and your mental health and how what you eat effects you. i think many kids with adhd and other problems would do so much better if their parents would take the sugar and fast food away. as far as the omega-3 caps, i would start out on a low dose because they can cause nausea and other problems if you know what i mean.
Avatar n tn I am sorry for your Dx. I am a female but also now hypo.Since the beginning of my illness everything I read regarding the disease, when I stumbled across the stats of men getting it, I read through it. Dx is rare. specially on sub clinical Hypo or Hyper thyroidism in men. I believe this b/c men are less likely to see a doctor when they have symptoms. and if they do go and get Dx'd - most do not have the patience and stay on top of it.
Avatar n tn If you're taking this pill just to loose weight, and not for a health reason, you should stop taking it, and see that if you keep eating healthy, and walking, you'll still loose! And BTW, taking this pill 10 mins before a meal to help with your appetite is crazy! All diet pills tell you to take it 30min.s before each meal.. b/c it takes 30 min.s to start working...10 min.s? that pill isn't doing anything for you when you're eating!
Avatar n tn I was prescribed Topamax along with an appetite suppressant (Adipex) for weight loss a bit over a year ago and stopped taking them after two and a half months. I did not lose all of the weight I had wanted to, but most of it. I had gained 55 pounds while on Paxil over the course of two and a half years. By taking a combination of the two medicines, I lost 22 pounds the first month, 10 pounds the second month, and 8 pounds the first half of the third month.
Avatar n tn *Find a free STD clinic in your zip code and get both you and your partner tested. Call the health department and they can give you information. *Consider the fact that you may be allergic to latex condoms. Swith to animal skin or non-latex condoms. Keep in mind that animal skin condoms are more porous than latex and can transmit certain stds. In conclusion, sex is not a bad thing, it's enjoyable, makes us feel good and the close contact makes us feel 'human'.
Avatar n tn Hi all. New to this. I am a 44 year old woman who is physically fit (gym 5 days a week) and eats pretty well. Approx 5 weeks ago I developed veins showing on both hands. They have not gone away and infact they are bulging most times, and I can "feel them". They have increased and I can see some starting to climb up my forearm now. Before this, my veins barely ever showed.
Avatar n tn I have infectious desease (plague) and becaues of it I have disposes blood in the body (soft part internal part and external part). And I do not have Bubonic plague. I have infections on Penis (plaque?) also I think this is because of Plague but I heard Peyronie's Disease? How can i solve this problem? Do you have any solution of it? And another important question is Tetanus (TT) vaccine, I have plague; Can i use Tetanus (TT) vaccine? If not please mention about the effet of it.
Avatar f tn Also, go to a nutrition store and see if you can get some Enzymes for his liver to help it not be so stressed from all the processing of alcohol. When he's sober, ask him if he'd at least drink some more water and some more vitamin water because he's flushing nutrition out of his body with the beer. I"m sure you've told him how much you care and are concerned..
Avatar n tn WOW! 22 pounds is a lot of weight to loose in such a short period of time! Good for you!!! I hope that I am able to loose 22 pounds in the next couple of months. Are you following a diet plan and working out? I have not started working out yet....maybe one day...I don't have a diet plan either I am just trying to make good choices and watch my portions. This way I know that when I stop the shots and medicine I won't gain it all back. Lets hope!!! Best of Luck to you...

92903 tn?1309908311 But this article from a Gay Men's Health web site is a good quick read on nutrition and the liver. http://www.gmhc.org/health/nutrition/liver/food.html Interestingly, nothing about coffee enemas. Maybe I'm wasting my time.

Avatar m tn Keeping healthy in general is prime by following good nutrition and exercise. Do not concentrate only on your sex organ, as this will distract you from other important things with interpersonal relationships.
287246 tn?1318573663 This is an e-mail I received today but the e-mail had pictures of all of these things. This has so much about general health, women's health and men's. I just thought it would be something good to share...... God's Pharmacy! Amazing! A sliced Carrot looks like the human eye. The pupil, iris and radiating lines look just like the human eye... and YES, science now shows carrots greatly enhance blood flow to and function of the eyes. A Tomato has four chambers and is red.
Avatar m tn a body that never realizes its full potential. But you can fight back with food; start today and you'll hit your peak from head to toe. Skin Carrots are loaded with vitamin A, which helps balance the pH of your skin's surface, making it just acidic enough to fend off harmful bacteria.
Avatar n tn This is really illuminating to find so many others suffering almost identical symptoms. I am a 58 year old male pretty fit and in generally good health. My problem is the intense tearing pain I get in my right knee when I bend at a certain angle and at a certain time. I can't define either because it's so uncertain. I can do situps now with no problem. We all seem to refer to this pain as a tearing pain as it feels like a wound that has been stiched together is tearing apart.
Avatar n tn I used Palmolive mixed with Tea Tree oil from the health foood store and let that sit for 2 mintues or so, then I used the CVS version of TGel shampoo, then I used Nutreogena Clarifiying shampoo. I didn't use conditioner. But my hair was so dry I used some frizzease on the ends after I blowdryed my hair. So I think tomorrow I am going to use the same three shampoos and hoefully it will be the end of this monster oily waxy greazzy thing on my head!

Avatar f tn read the story of tim mcgraw in this month's men's health magazine or google it. great example of how to change your life and live without alcohol. also, read through the alcoholism section of this site and you will thank your lucky stars you are not that far. good luck p.s. alcohol ages you dramatically. almost the same as before and after shots of meth addicts.
1591337 tn?1297104949 Beef is the perfect muscle food because it's packed with protein, zinc, and creatine. Down a hefty portion of each with this taco-salad recipe from Men's Health cover model Gregg Avedon: Brown ½ pound of extra-lean ground beef over medium heat. As it cooks, sprinkle it with black pepper, 2 teaspoons of chili powder, and a couple dashes of Tabasco. Place the cooked beef, one diced tomato, and 2 tablespoons of low-fat cheese over a bed of lettuce, and top with salsa.
1376247 tn?1278892259 I jogged, danced or swam every day and ate fresh foods. I stopped drinking alcohol and meditated. I also played little mind games with myself, forcing myself out of my comfort zones in various situations. I allowed myself to fully imagine the worse case scenarios and go through the feelings, desensitizing. Talking to the anesthesiologist- and officially requesting him - really helped a LOT with trust and info.
374593 tn?1257883550 Also things like smoking, too much alcohol, being overweight and bad nutrition may also hinder the semen. Maybe there are some good supplements out there that improve the sperm?? Good luck.
Avatar f tn It's easy to make ahead of time, and by tweaking the conventional recipe to include cranberries, Men's Health resident chef Matt Goulding has added a hint of jellylike sweetness. 1 6 oz can solid white tuna 2 Tbsp dried cranberries, roughly chopped 1/4 yellow onion, minced 1 Tbsp mayonnaise 2 tsp balsamic vinegar Salt and pepper to taste Mix all the ingredients together. Serve a scoop on a piece of toasted whole-grain bread.
1126418 tn?1326169592 Vitamin D deficiency is associated with the onset and progression of MS and other autoimmune diseases. One study found low vitamin B12 levels in the cerebrospinal fluid of people with MS even though their blood levels were normal. I recently read an excellent article by Dr. Mercola entited "Doctor Reverses MS in 9 Months by Eating These Foods" that also features the video from Dr Terry Wahls. An amazing article and video for anyone with or without MS.
1007653 tn?1259389567 , who studies exercise and nutrition at McMaster University in Hamilton, Ontario, highly trained athletes thrive on 0.77 gram of daily protein per pound of body weight. That's 139 grams for a 180-pound man. Men who work out 5 or more days a week for an hour or longer need 0.55 gram per pound. And men who work out 3 to 5 days a week for 45 minutes to an hour need 0.45 gram per pound. So a 180-pound guy who works out regularly needs about 80 grams of protein a day.

Avatar n tn I have read and I do take Selenium in case of conversion problem and thyroid health in general. However its more involved than just selenium alone. Iron deficiency, iodine deficiencies or excess protein intake (high protein, low calorie diets) takes a part in conversion problems. Selenium, Chromium, Zinc (copper - Iron) and magnesium are required for this conversion, as well as other nutrients. And must be taken in the proper dosage to each other or one will deplete the other.
