Using Sunblock Vs Sunscreen

From the show the other day, thank you for pointing out that sunblock and sunsceen are different and to use sunBLOCK, not the sun SCREEN (if you have the option). Sunblock has organic and inorganic ingredients that sit on the skin and block out the sun, and is thicker. Sunscreen has chemicals that absorb into the skin and block the sun that way, and can cause skin irritation. Melissa.

Bunion Sugery

I just watched a taped piece where a consultation with a foot doctor gave the impression that bunion surgery is not a very big deal.  I realize every case is different, and there are several types of bunion surgeries, but the taped consultation seemed to minimize how tramatic this can be.   I am glad that one of the doctors of the show added the fact that bunion surgery is serious! I hope the patient...

Exercise Motivation + Knee Pain

I need motivation to exercise.  I can make every excuse in the world.  I have time, but I'll do other things around the house before I'll exercise.  I have apps on my phone to do quick exercises - I intended to use them but don't.  My doctor wants me to exercise.  I also have chronic knee pain from what I was told is a bad knee due to genetics and irritation from running in high...

What cause ADHD

I would LOVE for you to have giving an answer even if it was just an idea to the question that was raised about why have we seen so many more cases. I would LOVE to have the doctors look into GMO foods and synthetically made vitamins and the fact that there may be a correlation between  the rise in ADHD and gut related problems. I'm not sure most Americans know that they are taking  synthetically...

Energy and Calorie

A lot of talk about ow-calorie diet these days for losing weight.  Well, this particular trend is not for everyone since everyone isn't a desk-jocky (who sits on a chair all day).  For those who are not desk-jockys, they need high-calorie meals to fill their needs: energy. (I got this information below from my old Chemistry Textbook) Energy is defined as the capacity to do work (W = F x D).  All forms of energy...

For the Lady with IBS (Angelica)

Just wanted to say that I also have IBS with constipation, and no type of dietary change has helped me feel any better.  In fact, when I did the high fiber/lots of water it was worse and I will never do that again.  A lot of water didn't work for me either (without the added fiber).  Bland foods didn't help (although I did feel better than when I tried the high fiber diet).  ETC. Anyway,...

Using Baby Oil

Just wanted to say that if you put baby oil on wet skin and you are still standing in the bathtub/shower, be VERY careful because the bottom of the tub/shower is most likely going to be extremely slippery from the oil that drips down/off your legs/arms/etc, and could cause a fall. Melissa.

Today's Show 6/24/2014

I am normally not a commenter about tv shows, but today's show was a bit disconcerting.  I thought the the male doctor's reaction to the woman who was stuck to the toilet seat at Home Depot was seriously lacking in bedside manner.  Dr. Ian's attitude basically was that it was her own fault for 1) using the bathroom at Home Depot, 2) not hovering, and 3) at the least not lining the seat.  All the...

Low Blood Sugar/Anemia

The other evening I went for a walk with my dad, and my dogs, and when I was walking back home, I had very intense cravings for food. As soon as I got home, I rushed to the kitchen, and grabbed the nearest thing I could find. Let's just say I felt a little light headed, and my hands had somewhat severe shaking. So I grabbed so peanuts and cracked them open, the hard part...
