How can I prevent nausea? I am dancer and everytime after practice I get really nauseous and sometimes vomit.?

I am an active person, I social dance and exercise and I do not get nauseous. I have danced salsa professionally before and recently started practicing again. The nausea only happens during and after practice but never during exercise or social dancing. I visited the doctor and all he said was to keep a diary of what I eat before practice and to no eat an hour prior. It doesn’t make sense since it has happened at every practice for the past 2 months and nowhere else.

maybe you are very nervous? if deep down you are putting great amount of pressure on yourself to be excellent this could be a cause for the nausea and or vomiting

The Benefits/Challenges Of Detoxification Information From Dr. Mark Hyman M.D.

This interview is an excerpt from Kevin Gianni’s The Healthiest Year of Your Life Program which can be found at http://www.thehealthiestyear of your life.com. In this excerpt, Dr. Mark Hyman, M.D. shares more on helping patients using the Functional Medicine Model and the challenges and benefits of detoxification.

The Healthiest Year of Your Life Excerpt with Dr. Mark Hyman, M.D., a best-selling author, respected medical consultant and a leader in the field of functional medicine.

Kevin: So how do you approach it? If a patient comes in, how do you figure out between those seven things what it could be or what the combination is?

Mark: That’s a great question. We learn in medical school what we’ll call, the differential diagnosis and that means that we try to narrow down the information to a specific diagnosis and anything that doesn’t match that, we ignore. In other words, if you come to me and you say, “You know, Dr. Hyman I have joint pain.” I’m going to look at your joints. You say, “I also have irritable bowel.” “Well, go see the gastroenterologist.” “I have this rash.” I say, “Well, go see the dermatologist.” “And I get these headaches.” “Well, go see the neurologist.” But in my world, the headaches, the rash, irritable bowel and arthritis are all part of the same problem. It’s not that this person happened to get all these conditions simultaneously.

It’s that they have some underlying roots to all these things. So I do is an inclusive history, a 22 page questionnaire that allows me to understand everything about them, from whether they have root canals, to how many fillings they have, to whether they have itchy scalp, to whether they have foreign travel. Through this, a picture emerges and I can tell whether there is a predominance of inflammatory problems, or hormonal problems, or whether it’s probably digestive, or whether there’s major detoxification issues, or whether there are major energy issues.

So I use of those seven frameworks to think about problems. Now, they’re all related. They’re not separate, but I take that information at the end of the day and I say, okay, well it seems like this is where we need to start.

So for any of these systems, I have to ask two questions and it’s very simple actually. Functional medicine is really only about two questions. One is, what do you need to get rid of that’s making you sick. Is it a toxin, an allergen, an infection? Is it poor diet, or stress? There’s only five things. Sometimes it’s tricky, because people have multiple things. So you have to deal with all of them.

The second thing we ask is, what does the body need to thrive? What are you missing for your body to function optimally? We need the right quality food. We need the right nutrients in the right amounts, depending on our genetic needs. We need the right amount of light, air and water. We need exercise. We need sleep and rest. We need rhythm; daily, regular rhythms because we’re circadian beings that function according to biological rhythms and also, we need connection, community, love, meaning, purpose, all these things that make us thrive. We need all those things. So we have to figure out what are they missing, what’s bugging them and we need to fix those two things everywhere around the whole system of the body and we need to do it all at the same time, more or less. So you take away the bad stuff and you put in the good stuff and the body does the rest.

Kevin: What are some most prevalent factors of those seven? What do you see the most of?

Mark: Well, I think you know there’s a lot of ways to get entry into the whole system and the reality is that when you work on any one system it works all the other systems. So in a way you get to where the most important touch points are for people and what I’ve experienced is there are two major touch points. One is its inflammation, because we’re all on fire and two, detoxification, because we’re all toxic.

So what I do in my practice is I engage people in a lifestyle that is both anti-inflammatory and detoxifying and I do it through diet, through supplements, through various lifestyle treatments, such as saunas, cleansing programs and detoxification and exercise and stress reduction and mind-body therapies, all of which help fix these two major issues and then usually 90% of things go away, maybe 80%..

Kevin: When you had the mercury issue in your body, how did you find out about it and did you go through a specific protocol for that?

Mark: Very good question. What I found out about it was I developed chronic fatigue and I was sick for about a year. I finally came across a naturopath, who suggested to me that in cases of chronic fatigue there was often mercury issues. So I actually got my hair analysis done, which showed a very high level of mercury. I followed that up with a test, called a chelation challenge test. So I collected my urine after I took this chelating agent. Normally your level should be less than three. It shouldn’t really be any, but less than three is considered okay. Mine was 187.

Kevin: Oh, my goodness.

Mark: Most people are in the 50 to 100, range 30 to 50 range and very few over 100. There are maybe a handful of them are over 200. So I realized that I was quite sick. Then I began to search and read and study and talk to people and look at the research, which there hardly was any. It was the Wild West. There really was no clear, recommended protocol. They’re still really isn’t. I’d certainly tried and experienced almost everything, including oral chelating agents, intravenous chelation, high-dose vitamin C, saunas, which I think are extraordinarily helpful, infrared saunas in particular and over time I really was able to drop my mercury load down significantly to pretty much negligible. I did that through very deliberate processes of detoxification and so I not only learned on my patients, but I learned on myself, as well.

Kevin: Yeah. Well, a lot of people on this call have an incredible interest in cleansing, Detoxification and fasting. So what kind of protocol or how should someone recognize or figure out what sort of issues they are dealing with and then go on to a detoxification program?

Mark: Well, that’s a great question. I think we can assume, based on living in the 21st century, that all of us have a certain load of petrochemical, industrial toxins. There was a study from the Environmental Working Group on 10 fetal cord blood samples. This is blood that comes from the umbilical cord of infants who are just born. So they have not even been in the world, but it’s their blood. They found over 260 toxic chemicals. 210 were neurotoxic and they found things such as phthalates, which is from plasticizers, flame retardants, pesticides, heavy metals and so on and so all of us we have to assume are subject to enormous loads of petrochemical toxins. Most of us seem to tolerate them more or less, but on the flip side of that is the question, how many of our other illnesses are related to this. We’ve seen an epidemic, for example, of allergic and autoimmune diseases. There’s a hypothesis out of Johns Hopkins coming out now, that environmental toxins are connected and perhaps they are a very important cause of autoimmune disease, which I do believe and see in my practice.

So the first thing, you have to assume that everybody needs to be that detoxified some way and there’s really no reason to test for petrochemical toxins, although we can, because you have to assume everybody has them.

Second, is heavy metals and I think this is an area where we can test and should test and I believe that heavy metal mercury screening tests should be probably the most important way we assess for chronic toxicity, particularly chronic illness, whether it’s depression, or Alzheimer’s, or chronic fatigue, or heart disease. We saw, in the last few days, articles in the New York Times talking about mercury in fish in New York City and sushi. Just having one sushi meal every three weeks is enough to make you toxic.

Then there’s the issue of dental amalgams, which is a whole can of worms and dental fillings with silver fillings. They’re not really silver. They’re mostly mercury, which do vaporize and get absorbed and have also heavy metal issues. So I think heavy metal testing is very important and this should really be done or doctor supervision. Once you’ve done that, then there are very simple ways that you can use to help detoxify. I think, everything needs to be customized. There’s no one-size-fits-all.

In fact, I saw a case yesterday of a woman, who was very healthy, was a marathon runner. She was very fit. She’ thought, well, “I’m going on a cleansing program.” She followed a book, which talked about using greens and juices and she did it and got extraordinarily sick. In fact, she didn’t go to the bathroom for the whole time.

Kevin: Wow.

Mark: She didn’t have a bowel movement. So this is part of the problem. She went unsupervised and it probably would’ve been okay if she had eliminated, but she actually developed chronic fatigue syndrome after, from being perfectly healthy. So I tell you to be careful with it when you do extreme fasting. My preference is more gentle typeof fasting, which I wrote about in The Ultra Simple Diet, which is an anti-inflammatory detox program that simply takes away all the garbage. So you get rid of alcohol, sugar, caffeine, processed food, junk food. Then you add in and you also get rid of the common food allergens, because those create tremendous inflammation: gluten, dairy, eggs, corn, yeast and a number of other things.

Then you just eat whole, fresh food along with a vegetable broth and some detoxifying rice proteins and the reason I recommend that is we do need amino acids to detoxify. Our liver has some very clear systems that it uses to get rid of garbage, including amino acids. So if you’re not eating amino acids, you’re going to be breaking down your own muscle and tissue to get amino acids, because you body needs them. I recommend supplementing with amino acids that in the form of a form of a rice protein, which is hypoallergenic, but you can use other proteins or whey proteins if you’re not allergic to dairy, to help boost your own detoxification systems, as well as other nutritional and herbal support, it helps the liver maximize its function. I also recommend really being attentive to bowel function. As you can see from this patient who got very sick, you have to bathroom every day, once or twice a day.

I had a workshop last week and there was a woman there who was overweight and had many, many chronic symptoms and her symptom score was 111 on our quiz, The Health Risk Assessment.. Now, anything over 20 is sick. Over 100 is really bad. In five days, her score came from 111 to 30 and she lost eight pounds. So the benefits of this are fantastic. You’re eating plenty of food that helps you detoxify like lots of garlic, lcruciferous vegetables, green tea, which can be decaffeinated. I recommend things like watercress, cilantro, artichoke, burdock, pomegranate, all of which have very powerful detoxifying effects on the body.

How to lose 10-20 pounds before bikini season?

ok well im a 14 year old girl, and im in 8th grade. i am over weight; 143 pounds, 5 feet 4 inches tall. im extremely self conscious about my weight and its starting to get to me. all of my friends are pretty and skinny and i always feel like im the ‘fat girl’. i do wear bikinis during the summer but only because i don’t want people to know how self conscious i am. i used to wear tankinis ( it’s like a bikini but instead of your stomach showing there is another piece of the bathing suit fabric covering it.) but of coarse, all my friends would ask me why i wear those and not bikinis. well i want to lose 10-20 pounds by or before bikini season. i would love to lose 20 pounds because that’s supposedly the healthy weight according to my doctor. if its not possible to lose 20 pounds i will shoot for 15. i just want to lose as much as i can. i think that when i look at my self in a bikini its not the front of me that bothers me, its more of when i look at myself from the side. i have a big stomach that i would like to get rid of. well i obviously go to school so right now i eat lunch everyday at around 12 in the afternoon. this is usually how i eat during the day;

i usually skip breakfast because i don’t have time
for lunch i eat what ever my mom packs me (usually a sandwich or a wrap, with a fruit cup, a regular fruit, or a bag or baked chips.)
when i get home im usually really hungry and i try not to eat but its kind of hard not to. i will eat fruit, chips, matzo, or any kind of junk food.
for dinner, i eat whatever my mom makes, (pastas, steak, chicken, pork chop, salad, etc.) or ill eat a smart one meal.
afterwords i also try not to eat anything but i have a sweet tooth so i tend to eat a cookie or something because i have that sweet craving.

so this is usually my day of eating. and i also play softball and i have practice about 2-3 times a week and we do a pretty good amount of running, plus i am the teams pitcher so that requires a lot of movement and its pretty tiring. i really want to lose weight to look better, and to be healthier. some one help me please? thank you so much!

Dont ever skip breakfast! Breakfast is the meal that keeps you going. If you eat a breakfast full of fiber and fresh fruit, you will be satisfied until lunchtime, and then some. A healthy breakfast should be something like these:

A healthy cereal like Special K; any fruit (bananas are great because they are brain food and full of potassium which is energy food) as long as its just fresh, plain fruit; and a glass of low-fat milk.

A bowl of oatmeal (its actually pretty good) with some cinnamon for flavor; half a grapefruit with a no calorie sweetener on top.

An egg omelet with peppers, onions, etc. No meat. With this, drink a fruit smoothie. Throw in strawberries, banana, blueberries, blackberries, raspberries, peaches, anything you have. Its yummy and gives you, like, 2 servings of fruit, at least. Add a dollop of whipped cream on top. It’ll satisfy your sweet tooth and its very low-cal.

For lunch, your meals sound pretty healthy. For your sandwiches, use whole grain bread. It has a ton more fiber and way less calories. (BTW, fiber keeps you fuller longer and keeps your blood sugar even which helps prevent cravings.) Put in white meat like chicken and fish into your sandwiches, and if you like, add lettuce, tomato, etc.

After 2 or 3 more hours after eating lunch at school, its perfectly normal to be hungry! You can most definitly eat when you get home, but dont gorge on chips or junk food. The best choice is fruit or veggies, of course. If you want something crunchy, eat some lightly salted almonds or cashews. Popcorn is also a really good snack, but beware of "movie theater butter". I use corn kernels and cook my own popcorn on the stove, and only add a little salt on afterwards. Its delicious (I’ll never go back to microwave!) and saves hundreds of calories. Plus, its fun!

Your dinners also sound good. Grilled or baked chicken is a good choice, and fish, especially salmon, are natural fat burners. Pork is good because its a white meat.You should try to have salad every night before or with your dinner, so you wont stuff yourself at dinner. Pasta is okay. Steak is a red meat, which can increase your cholesterol and has some fat. Its okay to eat, but you should have much more white meat than red.

Having a small dessert isnt the problem with your weight, but it wont help you lose any. I limit myself to 3 desserts a week, and once you get used to it, you realize that you didnt really need those other 4. A good tip is to get in 65% of your calories in before 2:00 PM, because you have more oppurtunities to work it off.

-Brush your teeth after every meal (you cant do this at school for lunch, but when your home). It sends a signal to your brain telling your stomach that the meal is over.

-Eat slowly. It takes 20 minutes for your stomach to tell your brain that youre full, so its easy to overeat. Put your fork down between every bite, talk to your family…

-Drink LOTS of water. Substituting a glass of water for a can of soda (even diet soda) can save hundreds of calories. And dont let fruit juice fool you. Its better than soda, but it has lots of added sugar and other sweeteners. Also, dont think you can get away with Coke Zero or other "no calorie" sodas. Even though it has no calories, its still really bad for you and can ruin your weight loss efforts.

-Green Tea is really good for you. It has no calories (i know i just dissed coke for this, but this one is good) and green tea has natural antioxidants and fat burners, so by drinking it, your actually losing calories!

-Weight train. You dont have to bench press 100 pounds, but lifting small weights (5-25 pounds each) builds muscle and increases your metabolism. The higher your metabolism, the faster your body can burn fat.

-Dont skip meals. This can cause your body to go into starvation mode, slowing your body from burning fat.

Softball is a great sport, it’ll help you out a lot. You sound like you get a good amount of excercise. Running is also probably the best form of excercise you can get. Basically, do those and some pushups, sit ups especially will help your stomach, but remember: there is no spot weight loss. If you want to lose weight, you’ll lose weight all over.

If you have a wii or Kinect, those have great games that get some good aerobic excercise. Wii fit, or any dance game, ones that get you up and moving.

Be careful with this weight loss, dont overdo it, skip meals etc, but good luck!

Most importantly, dont get discouraged, and dont be too hard on yourself.



I’m wanting to become a doctor and have some questions.?

I was hoping there was some doctors or some on here in the medical field that could help answer some of my questions about becoming a doctor? To help you answer some of my questions you should know I want to work at a hospital and in a few years go to private practice.

1. I know when your going through school your probably not going to have very much money and you’ll have to take out lots of loans for school and stuff, but after you’ve been a doctor for a while will you be able to pay everything back and start making a lot of money? Or do people over exaggerate about how much money doctors make?

2. This kinda goes with the first question and that’s how much money do doctors make a year and whats the average cost it is to go to school and stuff? Also how long do you have to go to school and be an intern?

3. Do you have any advice for me when I become a doctor or start going to collage to be one?

4. If your a doctor do you have time for family and friends or do you always have to put your job first? And are you always on call if your not working?

1. Income varies widely. Some physicians are closing practices because the expenses exceed the revenue (it costs a lot to run a medical practice, and insurances are not keeping up with increased costs). Other specialties are doing well at the moment, but that could change. If money is your motivating factor, try law or business.

2. If income is your motivating factor, look elsewhere. You’d be miserable and we don’t want you.

School – 4 yrs college, 4 yrs med school, residency (internship = first year of residency) is 3-7+ yrs. You pay for school, but start earning $ as a resident. Not much, but at least it stops the financial hemorrhage.

3. See #2 above. Be prepared to sacrifice your life for 7 or more years while you train. Learn proper English (college, not collage; you’re, not your) – details matter in medicine, and sloppy English is a sign of lack of attention to detail. People expect us to be perfect – you should expect nothing less of yourself.

4. Call depends on your practice situation. I do not currently take call. I have a practice situation that allows me to have free time. Your mileage may vary.



How long does it take for a pretty bad knee sprain to heal?

i sprained my knee skiing a week ago and i cant put any pressure on it – it hurts too bad. I went 2 the doctor and i am getting an MRI. My swim team practice starts in 10 days and I wanna b able to swim. So how long will my knee sprain take to heal?

Nope, you won’t be ready, sorry. An injury of that type can take 6 weeks to heal and likely another 6 weeks before it gets back to normal – that is of course if it is a sprain. If it is more, then the time to heal could be significant, especially if you require surgery.. You should avoid all exertion that could cause additional damage.



San Diego Pedestrian Accident Lawyer’s Top Ten Things You Don’t Want to Hear in the Hospital After a San Diego Pedestrian Accident

1. Well, you look like you went fifteen rounds with the heavyweight champion. A truck hit you or do you always look this bad?

 

2. I can’t say I ever remember one person with more fractures.

 

3. We’re going to have to quarantine you.

 

4. I hope you’ve had all your vaccinations.

 

5. A few shots in the buttocks and when the pain starts to set in, you’ll think even the food in the cafeteria looks good.

 

6. They don’t call me Doctor for nothing. Still, in over fifty years of practice, I don’t think I’ve ever seen anything quite like that.

 

7. Why didn’t you come right in instead of waiting out there for six hours. You could have gone into shock. Actually, you may be going into shock right now, by the way you look.

 

8. We’ve got the results of your blood test back and they are a real doozy.

 

9. And you say that’s been itching for how long?

 

10. Sorry, we mixed up your X-rays. Still the guy next door is relieved. As for you, though….

 

Now here are ten actual tips of advice from a San Diego pedestrian accident lawyer to follow if you have been in an accident. You can also learn more about how to handle a personal injury in San Diego, or any city, by calling the Law Offices of R. Sebastian Gibson at any of the numbers which can be found on our website at http://www.SebastianGibsonLaw.com  and learning how we can assist you.

 

Obviously, if you have had an accident, and you are reading all of this advice, it may have been a few hours since the accident. However, if you ever have another accident, or if it’s only been a few hours since you were hurt, here’s what you should do from the start.

 

First, take a look around and determine if you or anyone, are hurt. If so, taking steps like trying to prevent further injury or loss of blood are the most important thing you can do. Even if some other driver caused you to be injured, it’s just good manners to help the other driver if they are hurt. They may even be so thankful that they admit their fault to you. The worst thing you can do is get angry or start a fight.

 

Second, make sure everyone is safe from being injured further. If you are in the middle of traffic, and you are dizzy, sit down away from traffic. If your vehicle is a traffic hazard and you have accident warning devices like flares or triangles, put them out on the road to warn other drivers and get away from the car. Let the police an other emergency personnel investigate the scene with the vehicles in place and move them more safely at a later point.

 

Third, call the police. Accident reports are extremely helpful if the police will do such a report. Let the police know you are injured immediately. Answer the police questions honestly. But if you are dazed or confused, let them know you need medical treatment and answer only what you feel sure about. Remember, your statements can and will be used against you if you admit fault, and it will be too late and too fishy to later say you didn’t know what you were saying at the scene. Police know that your best recollection is immediately after an accident.

 

Fourth, get the other driver’s information including their names, addresses, driver’s license numbers, make and model of their vehicles, license plate numbers, and their insurance company name and policy number. If there are witnesses, get their names, addresses and telephone numbers as well. If the other driver makes any admissions of fault, write those down as well.

 

Fifth, if you have a camera on your cell phone or in the car and you aren’t too injured, take some photos of the vehicles and the scene. If you can’t do it right away, do it after you are released from the hospital.

Sixth, if you are hurt, obtain medical treatment. Don’t decline the ambulance or hospital examination to save your insurance company money or to be stoic. Take your valuables out of your car if you can and get checked out at the hospital. If you are not hurt, don’t get treatment you don’t need. However, remember, after an accident, you may feel a rush of adrenaline that causes you to only start feeling symptoms of pain a few hours later. If you have a health plan that requires you to obtain permission first, call them and find out where you are allowed to seek treatment.

 

Seventh, call a good San Diego pedestrian accident attorney as soon as you have had your initial treatment, so the lawyer can gather other important evidence and prevent the insurance company from taking advantage of you and obtaining such things as recorded statements that you feel fine, when many of your symptoms have yet to manifest themselves. A good San Diego pedestrian accident lawyer can save you from making a great deal of mistakes and can shoulder much of the hassle of knowing what to do about car repairs, car rentals, medical treatment, witness statements and the like. If you think you will save money by not having an attorney, think again. A good San Diego pedestrian accident lawyer can almost always obtain much higher settlements, obtain reductions of medical bills and insurance liens and prevent you from making costly mistakes. Also, most San Diego pedestrian accident attorneys advance costs of obtaining police reports, medical records and the like and are paid and reimbursed for these costs only out of any settlement.

 

Eight, you will need to report the accident to your insurance company, but since they will want to take a recorded statement from you, just like any other driver’s insurance company, it’s good advice to retain an attorney first. And if the other driver did not have insurance, remember that it is your own insurance company that will be your adversary. You will also need to report the accident to the Department of Motor Vehicles and your lawyer can give you the form for this.

 

Ninth, do not agree to settle your claim privately with the person at fault for the accident. This almost never works out to your advantage. Don’t agree not to call the police. Police reports that determine the fault for an accident are golden. Your agreement to not involve the police only affords an opportunity for the other driver to change his story and blame you when the police will no longer investigate the accident.

 

Tenth, don’t pay a traffic ticket without a fight if you weren’t at fault or agree to accept a small payment for your vehicle repairs without knowing that the amount will in fact cover the cost of all the repairs.

 

If you’ve had a pedestrian accident in San Diego, Carlsbad, Oceanside, La Jolla, Del Mar, Escondido, Chula Vista, El Cajon, Vista, San Marcos, Solana Beach, Encinitas, Pacific Beach, or anywhere in Southern California, we have the knowledge and resources to be your San Diego Pedestrian Accident Lawyer and your Carlsbad Pedestrian Accident Attorney. Be sure to hire a California law firm with auto, motorcycle, truck, bicycle, pedestrian, car, bus, train, boat and airplane accident experience, wrongful death experience and insurance law expertise who can ensure you are properly represented and get the compensation you deserve.

Does being a doctor really take over your life? How is medical school?

I am a senior in high school. I was wondering if there are any doctors here that could let me know all the bad things that you have to deal with. Does being a doctor really take over your life? I want to be in family practice…
What do I need to know about med school?
What do I really need to know before starting this off? I know most doctors say that you should not be looking at the money when I go into this program…but besides that what else do I need to know?

I don’t know anything about medical school, but I did a google search for you and found this: http://www.bestpremed.com/hs.php

I hope it helps. it seems to have a lot of information, although I did not read much of it! Make sure you click the "Ins and Outs of Med School" thing near the top of that article, too. Actually, I’ll just link that:http://www.bestpremed.com/MDprof.php
I hope I helped.



About how much schooling would I need to become a practicing doctor?

I would need a college degree and graduate from a medical school as well, but how many years would that be combined? Wouldn’t it be around eight, depending on how many classes I took per semester? And after med school I have to complete a one year internship right? How long should my residency be? I’m looking to become a surgeon, so after I finish my residency I join a fellowship right? I’m entering high school and want to know a few classes I should take when I start taking college courses in a year or two.
I know I’ve got a lot of questions. I’d be really greatful if someone could help me find some answers.

Four years college, 4 years medical school and 4 years residency assuming you just want general surgery if you want Neurosurgery or such then it would be longer. Fellowships are usually for research or specialize. "Interns" are generally those who are in their 3 and 4th year of medical school doing mandatory rotations through the different specialties. If you start college start with basic chemistry and biology since those are required for medical school and will give you a feel for the type of material you will study for the next 8 years.
