Patient discussion about idea

Q. Please give any idea to try? I always tend to eat a lot, I am food lover & my mom cooks very good and I can’t stop overeating….I am obese yet I cannot…….I have tried thrice on a good diet plan and fitness program, which I failed to carry on……………please give any idea to try?

A. My dear …the problem is that you don’t eat to live but you live to eat. There must be a strategy that you first eat when you are hungry and this needs mental exercise not a physical and no diet plan even. This craving must be reduced. You can leave your house for some time and join some yoga village and have the diet they give and exercise under the trainer. You don’t need any diet plan you need diet management with physical training and to start on that you need mental motivation.

Q. I don’t have any idea about herbal medicine. Hi! My 7 years old daughter is suffering from asthma and this gets severe with cold. I would like to know, is there any herbal medicine or syrup that my daughter can take for her asthma and cold. I don’t have any idea about herbal medicine. Thank You.

A. HELLO JUSTIN,their is herbal meds out there,to help people from getting a cold,because when a person with asthma-gets a cold,it will bring on a attack. once an asthma attack starts,you have to use conventional meds.bronchodilators(inhalers)-steroids-methylxanthines-and sometimes oxygen. Herbal meds work slower than conventional meds-you cant use them for a disease like asthma,because time is everything when a person has and asthma attack,because no one can predict how long an attack will last---my suggestion to you is to find a pulmonologist(DR).--not a regular dr. IF you can keep your child from getting a cold--from being around dust in the house-smoke--fumes,and some odors--an asthma attack can start from exertion(exercise-induced asthma)---foods/wine-some dyes found in candy(yellow dye)--aspirin some cheeses--spores-pollens,animal danders.If you decide to try herbal meds(PLEASE)check with your DR. first------mrfoot56

Q. Why is it such a bad idea to take drugs. For the past two months I am not peaceful at home. My parents always advice and irritates me to avoid drugs. Why is it such a bad idea to take drugs? Why they behave like this?

A. You risk also to make each day suicide for a nothing. You are too precious to leave us all here alone - starting with your family. Talk with us, chat with us, send us messages, but please don't shoot you or stay away from a computer. I smoked during 9 years cigarettes - heavy, superheavy sometimes, 80 cigarettes a day. I stopped abruptly, but that you can manage the missing of each cigarette-kick you must be prepared, because the new problems will instantly start after your very last cigarette. Today i had to smoke two cigarettes to bring me down beause i have a crisis to manage of bipolar disorder and ADHD plus Sanpaku eyes. You need very hard medications usually. But because I have enough from "heavy-metal" pharma-trash, I look and run around to get natural products to have no smashing side-effects. Drugs are not fun at all. You are depending to a needle, some white powder, sniffing if you can and perhaps loosing the lifeline to reality. Don't make this very stupid thing!We
