Q: 

Has anyone here taken BETA BLOCKERS for heart palpitations before?

A: Hi my name is Alan I had rhumatic fever age 9 and blew out my Mitral valve I was very lucky to survive and 44 years later I''m still around. The hart uses two types of adrenaline Alpha and Beta Alpha is used by your hart muscle to keep fireing when no simulation is applied this lets your hart beat at rest the drugs to control Alpha Adrenaline are Ace Inhibitors. Beta Blockers are for controlling beta adrenaline this is produced to help you jump over gates and run the mile. Palpitations result from beta adrenaline production when you not doing anything strenuous. Ive been taking sotocor (Sotalol) for 6 years. I have had atrial fibrillation for 40 years and palpitations are cool. I had a great specialist as a kid and...


Q: 

Is it OK for my 6-1/2 yr. old son to play with dress up clothes & wigs? He hides this fact from us

A: I am afraid if you had embarrassed him already that he might develop a complex over it. You should bring it out in the open and be comfortable with it and it will seem to him, not a big deal. He might be into it because it has become taboo and if you make it not taboo the urge to hide it will dissipate. I don''t think you should ignore it at all because he is struggling with it and he needs to know its ok and that it isn''t a naughty thing to do. People of all ages do unusual things at times that are not explainable. I just know that if a mother disagrees with a natural expression it can be scaring for life. My sister let her 8 yr old dress up like a girl for halloween and there hasn''t been much of it since because she didn''t make a big deal of it. People

Q: 

I thought she was a woman: My real-life crying game

A: Dear Really concerned and confused, First, a couple definitions: Cross-dressers are people who sometimes or always wear clothing and accessories traditionally sported by another gender — it''s something they enjoy. Crossdressers usually identify as their biological sex, and many male crossdressers are heterosexual. Transsexual folks feel their assigned or anatomical sex isn''t the same as the gender and related roles they identify with. Some may undergo hormone therapy and/or surgery to cause biological and physical appearance changes. Intersex people are born with an ambiguous biological sex. The old word for someone who is intersex is hermaphrodite, but intersex is now considered more respectful. People born...


Q: 

Signs of abuse

A: Hi Jennifer, Your husband knows he has a problem with alcohol.  People who do not have a problem do not feel a need to hide their use.  Look at it this way--who is going to pretend to not eat the donut, the person having the problem with obesity or the skinny person?   There are two categories of alcoholics--those who are abusers and those who are dependent.  The abusers are the ones who go on binges and the dependents (I was one) are those who do "maintenance" drinking.  We drink every day and often dont show the effects of our large consumption to those around us.  In other words, we drink a lot--an awful lot, but we

Q: 

How Can I Repair Damaged Hair?

A: A single hair is composed of three layers: the innermost medulla, the middle cortex and the outer cuticle. Damage to any one or all of these layers causes hair damage. Obvious signs of hair damage are brittle, dry and dull-looking hair. Split ends, tangles and hair loss are common in damaged hair. So is it possible to repair damaged hair? In truth, damaged hair cannot be repaired. It can be treated with various haircare products or home-made remedies to improve its look, but these measures are only a temporary fix and must be frequently repeated for the effects to last. The only real way to repair damaged hair is by cutting off the damaged parts and letting new growth take place. However,...


Q: 

HELP I need advise on Head Lice!?

A: They hatch 1-2 weeks after the eggs are laid. The adult lice can live up to 3 days off the scalp. My daughter had them when she was little. I did the over the counter treatment, picked out the eggs from her hair one by one (took a long time) and washed everything she came into contact with. Anything that couldn''t be washed I put into garbage bags and sealed tight for a week or so. That was long enough to kill any adults that may have been lurking about. Even after they were gone I repeated the over the counter treatment just to be sure... I even treated myself just in case... spray Lavender oil on her pillow before she goes to bed and also rub it into her hair after every shower Buy one of those over the counter shampoos and use the nit...
