Q. What kind of treatment he may receive? my alcoholic dad who is declared with alcoholism will be given treatment from next week and now he is on detoxification…what kind of treatment he may receive?

A. Your dad will be given drugs and some education and counseling support to reduce on alcohol. Drug treatment will be like antabuse to cause nausea every time he takes alcohol or some other drugs depending on his counseling. The most important part of treatment is to make him accept that he is alcoholic so he takes the courage himself to leave alcohol. These will be combined with psychological support.

Q. From where can I receive better results: from a gym or my home? I have recently bought some gym equipments for home. Now my friend sowed a doubt that the investment I made is for waste. From where can I receive better results: from a gym or my home?

A. From your question I think you have invested MORE for the equipments. But anyway past is past. It greatly depends on your fitness goals and your schedule. Both locations may yield the results you want. It's just good to know what you are aiming for. For example, if you are a busy mom of two and you want to lose those stubborn 10-15 pounds, but you don't want to join a gym because it is inconvenient to drive, plus you don't want to leave your kids with people you don't know, and additionally you prefer a more private setting, then, in-home training may be a good solution. Progressive resistance training performed in-home, mixed with cardiovascular exercise, and good eating habits will help you lose those 10-15 pounds. On the other hand, if you are a middle aged guy who is overweight, and you want to get into the shape of a bodybuilder, then joining a gym may be a better idea.
