Your Questions About An Impaired Immune System

Lizzie asks…

Supervisor very unprofessional RE sickness?

Hey 

The days I work are : Sunday, Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday

Last Sunday I was in work (Im a care worker) and I wasnt feeling great when I left but went in anyway. When I got to one of clients I actually vomited so I phoned in and went home. Booked a drs appointment for the earliest possible (wed). I was violently ill all the Sunday and Monday, could barely keep water down. Was ok with liquids on Tuesday but still couldnt eat. Wed morning and afternoon I was fine, managed to eat it and keep it down but I was sick again after dinner.

Anyway the Dr examined me and said I had gastroentritis and said I should leave 48 hours between the last instance of vomiting and returning to work as its quite contagious and can seem to clear then just come on all of a sudden. She also gave me a note to confirm this.

I was sick the early hours of this morning despite being fineish on Thur so I phoned in. He was quite rude to me and was short of calling me a liar “do you have a note?”. Yes. I do. Seemed to imply he was going to “get me back” or somthing. Im not being funny but his main concern should be the health of our clients, many of which have impaired immune systems due to old age so what does he expect me to do, ignore the doctors advice and put them at risk and even risk vomiting in a clients house again?

Im quite angry but Im not well enough to argue the toss with him right now. But Im right arent I?

admin answers:

Main problem you have is — not the professional conduct of your Supervisor– simply your clear lack of common sense. For after bringing up the food you ate, you need to take water until digestion is settled. You say you ate solid food soon after being sick. Then what else could you expect? Try not to be so “angry with your self”.

Jenny asks…

Are You Aware Tha Elevated Blood Sugar And Severe Stress Are The Real Enemies NOT Cholesterol In Coronary?

Are you aware that elevated blood sugar and severe stress are the REAL enemies, NOT cholesterol in coronary heart disease?

“High blood sugar promotes CHD in numerous ways; it stimulates free radical activity, reduces vitamin C uptake by our cells, impairs the immune system, decreases levels of nitric oxide in our arteries, inhibits the breakdown of blood clots, and dramatically increases glycation, a process in which glucose molecules irreversibly attach themselves to protein and lipid molecules inside the body.. Amoung other things glycation stimulates further free radical production and results in the formation of advanced glycosylation end-products (AGEs), also known as glycoxidation products.

It’s a pity so few of us would even have a clue what out fasting blood glucose is because monitoring one’s blood glucose levels is a far more useful and widely applicable predictor of one’s future mortality risk than one’s cholesterol levels. “

admin answers:

As I always answer to these questions, there’s a lot of junk “theories” from pseudo-experts that I don’t know or care about.

The last part of the question is apparently a quotation from one of the pseudo-experts.

Sandra asks…

testicle cancer causing urinary symptoms?

Can cancer of the testicle impair the immune system? Thus causing an overgrowth of yeast and urinary symptoms?

admin answers:

Testicular cancer and infection as you asked are usually not related. Cancer usually causes local mass effect and problems associated with its spread or metastasis. However, cancer can result in lack of blood supply or necrosis complicated by potential inflammation and infection. Cancer can certainly overwhelm or interfere with the immune system.
In addition, it is known that the symptoms of testicular cancer and inflammation of the testis and/or epididymis can be similar. That’s why when ones have the pain, discomfort, lump or problem with testis, they should seek medical help. The early diagnosis is the key to long-term survival.
Good luck.

Your Questions About Eye Exercises For Lazy Eye

Nancy asks…

Really paranoid I have bowel cancer? What could it be?

I’ve read lots about the symptoms online and have kinda mentally self-diagnosed myself, so I need to go to the doctor but have now made it seem far to scary because of what I fear the outcome will be! Just really need some reassurance so I can get myself there. Would prefer only medical professionals or people with some kind of experience in this to answer. Really don’t need people saying ‘go to the doctor’, you’ll just be voted down.

Basically, for about two years now I’ve had discomfort in my left side on and off. It’s usually there but I often don’t notice it and sometimes it seems to improve. I often sit badly, with my left leg bent so probably squashing all organs and things in my left side. I’ve made an effort to stop doing this so much lately but for the majority of that time I sat like it for hours and hours every day.

I eat a lottttttt of fibre and don’t exercise very much at all, keep meaning to but it doesn’t happen because I sleep badly. One of the other symptoms is tiredness but I guess I can count that out seeing as I generally don’t sleep till 4am and have a very lazy, inactive lifestyle.

I do get a bit of blood occasionally when I go to the toilet but it’s bright red and I also have what I think looks like a pile and some anal discomfort which I’ve heard is a symptom of piles?

I also get discomfort in my left hip area and occasionally in the lower middle part of my abdomen. I keep (without meaning to) convincing myself that this must be the cancer having spread and affecting other parts of my body. What are the chances of that having happened without it being blatantly obvious? Of course, this could just as easily be down to bad posture and lack of exercise I assume.

My left eye sometimes feels a bit sensitive and like there is a bit of extra pressure in it which I’ve read can be a symptom of yet another bowel related problem.

I’m 19 and female and there is no history of bowel cancer in my direct family (parents and grandparents) as far as I’m aware.

Sorry for the long question, was trying to list everything I could think of to include!

Thanks very, very much for any help and reassurance.

admin answers:

Hi
First of all stop worrying so much.Bowel cancer is very rare at your young age and would not be linked to the symptoms you describe.Its not good to read these medical online sites cause they can make you paranoid!-
You say you eat A LOT of fibre and sit around for hours and hours per day.That could be the problem- if you have a sedatory life sitting around doing nothing then you wont be tired at night.Too much fibre can give you indigestion problems.My advice would be-have a balanced diet and do some exercise daily -youll sleep better,feel better and not sit around worrying–at 19 you should be enjoying life!
I should see your gp though re the fact that you have slight piles-cream or suppositories will cure that. Above all get active!

Mary asks…

My coworkers dog is getting sick and having problems?

The dog is having digestive problems, eye issues, weight issues, and all sorts of problems. I baby sat the dog for 2 weeks and took it on walks 2x a day and all of her issues cleared up. Within a week of coming back, the dog was back to her old problems. She said she had no idea why this was happening. I asked her,”Why don’t you take the dog for a walk?” It doesn’t take that much time. She said, “bulldogs don’t need to be exercised.” Seriously?! How lazy/stupid/delusion can she be? I wish I could get that dog taken away from her. It seems like abuse. Is there anything I can do? I feel bad?

admin answers:

The dog should be exercised and taken to the vet.

Ruth asks…

Feeling heavy headed and dizzy?

So for a while now sometimes I will feel heavy headed and it makes me lazy. Also my eyes feel heavy and when I look around it sort of hard to move my eyes and my vision is sort of dizzy. I feel really dumbed down persay. And I have been having insomnia and headaches. Any advice? I always keep myself hydrated eat healthy and exercise. But I can’t say I sleep well since it’s hard now a days. I’m 16 and I don’t think it’s normal that having these problems.
I forgot to mention that whenever I’m relaxing or just laying down and I get up I feel very very dizzy. The other day I got so dizzy I couldn’t see for a couple of seconds.

admin answers:

It is normal, because a LOT of 16 year olds have sleep trouble. And the second thing you included, that’s called a headrush. TThis problem will most likely go away when you get more sleep, but if it doesn’t, you really should see a doctor.

Your Questions About Eye Exercises For Astigmatism

Michael asks…

Natural Treatment for Improving Eye sight?

Hi guyz,
Just wanna know about the Natural treatments available for Correcting or Improving vision.I have a slight Astigmatism of less than 1 in both eyes. I am planning to have a career in Armed forces(may be flying). So i want to know about any Natural or Alternative treatment available for Rectifying this condition. I dont want to go for Surgical procedure like LASIK or PRK.Lasik and PRK are not a strict taboo in forces and they can be easiy detectable thru a test. I have heard about Bates method and Exercises, but dont know how much effective they are in correcting Astigmatism. Please advice.
Thanks in advance.

admin answers:

ACCORDING TO THE SECOND SITE LISTED BELOW THESE EXERCISES DO IMPROVE EYESIGHT IN THOSE WITH ASTIGMATISMS………

Exercises for a Better Vision – Palming
Palming

“Palming” was originally a yoga technique. After Bates noticed its beneficial effects on the visual system, he “borrowed” it and incorporated into his system of vision improvement.

Palming works by calming the visual system. Our eyes see by receiving light signals. If there were no light entering the eyes, one should expect to see nothing. Instead, in eyes with defective eyesight, there appears swirling patches of colours, creating pictures where there should be none. This is a symptom of the eyestrain causing defective vision.

The act of palming makes people aware of the strain. The warmth from the hands helps relaxes the tense eyeballs. Some people claim to be able to the “inner energy” or “chi” emanating from the palms. I think we can safely dismiss those claims.

How to do
Place your palms over your closed eyes, letting the fingers cross over at the forehead. Slightly cup your palms such that you are not pressingon the eyeballs. Feel the warmth of the hands radiate and diffuse gently into your eyeballs. Think of the most peaceful scene that you can imagine. Relax…

A few things to note

Do not press against the eyeballs with your palms. This will put pressure on the blood vessels in the eyeballs and reduce circulation of blood and nutrients. Make sure that as much light as possible is blocked out by the palms. The exact position of the palms is up to the individual. Crossing the fingers at the forehead usually helps.

Put yourself in a comfortable and proper posture e.g. Don’t slouch
Remember to keep your eyes closed, behind the palms.
And keep your hands clean, otherwise there will be the attack of the pimples!
The most important thing is to relax. Of course, one can’t try to relax. The harder you try, the more tense you become. The trick is to imagine pleasant scenery such as floating clouds in a blue sky, a peaceful sunrise at the top of the mountains.

Nancy asks…

Unbalance eyesight~! help~!?

My old specs was sph: right -5.50 and left -5.25, worn for 8 years. I always sit in front of the class and didn’t really notice the changes in the power until this beginning of the year. Just recently I got myself a new pair of spectacles with:

Sph: Right -7.00, Left -6.00
Cly: Right and left 0.00
axis: Right and left 0.00

This year i will be turning 21 and I am really afraid of my eyesight deteriorating as i age. My friends told me that I am lucky that I do not have astigmatism which will cause blindness (as they say). However the right eye and left eye have a very large difference which worries me. My optometrist told me not to worry and eat more veggie, and exercise my eyes more by looking at greenery and trees. But still it is very unsettling, what do I do? It seems that i depend on my right eye more than my left~!
thank you for all answers~! ^^

admin answers:

LOL, astigmatism will not cause blindness. Anyway, eyesight naturally deteriorates with age anyway. It might happen more rapidly with bad eyesight, but it WILL slow down and eventually stop until you’re quite old. :P And yes, you are lucky to not have astigmatism, it’s rather bothersome.

The One Eye Exercise That Will Strengthen Your Vision Rapidly

The One Eye Exercise That Will Strengthen Your Vision Rapidly

I am going to prove to you that within five minutes of reading this article, you are going to be able to see far better. Just five minutes, that is it.
Whether you are wearing glasses or contact lenses… Or even if you’re not, but would like to see miles better, there is a simple eye exercise you can do to right away enhance your vision.
So lets get to this eye exercise.

The exercise is quick blinking of your eyes. What you do is blink as quick as you can for roughly one minute. And it’s got to be fast. Not casual blinking. Just keep blinking as quickly as you can… Even though it will be slower than the 1st 10 seconds of blinking.

The rationale why this works is perhaps because it offers a surge of blood flowing to your eyes. This rapid blinking helps answer both of those Problems due to the overwhelming surge in blood to the eyes ( which nourishes them with nutrients ) as well as strengthening your capillaries which allows for better use of that blood.

So if you did this quick blinking for one minute at a time for a total of 5 times in a day, your vision will improve. You’ll notice an improvement after just 1 minute. Now, this improvement is transient to start with.

You’ll see the improvement immediately. So that should provide motivation for you to resume doing the quick eye blinking so that the better vision becomes permanent with repeated eye exercises.
So do the rapid eye blinking for five minutes a day, one minute at a time. You can do all 5 minutes right in a row or spread them out during the day. It doesn’t matter. Just get in 5 minutes each day. You’ll be rewarded with improved eyesight.

Would you like to discover more eye exercises to effortlessly and permanently improve your eyesight?
