    A headache that keeps on lasting

    Monday of last week I went to the gym to lift weights and I got the worse headache of my life. It took me to my knees in which I experienced a headache that I've never experienced before. I put down the weights and could barely make it home. I'm not sure if it was a migraine, because I really...

    foot and elbow pain

    I hurt myself in the gym lifting weights a few weeks ago. It was something I was doing that was really stupid, so my foot is in pain and I'm not able to do many exercises. A friend of mine who is a physical therapist says I have plantar fasciitis, which seems to make sense as I'm in pain in the...

    What supplements can be warmed up?

    I figured this was the correct place to post, because I'm talking about my child. They recommend Vitamin D for infants and we supplment my son with Vitamin D drops, but we put it in his breast milk bottle we give him once a day. My question is that the person who feeds him heats up the...

    What age to start resistance exercise?

    When I was a kid I would always hear that lifting weights would stunt your growth, which I believe to be a myth as even the American Academy of Pediatric states "Strength training programs do not seem to adversely affect linear growth and do not seem to have any long-term detrimental effect on...

    Long term creatine use?

    I've been using creatine on and off for years and I'm just wondering if there's any negative use of creatine? I typically take it for 2 months, then I'm off for a month or two before cycling on it again. I'd just prefer not to take it if I knew for sure that it can cause issues. Only thing...

    making kefir

    I tried kefir a few months ago and I really liked the taste of it. I just wasn't impressed with the cost, so I've been putting greek yogurt in my shakes in the morning. Somebody was telling me how much easier kefir is to make than yogurt and how much better it's supposed to be, so I was...

    Kefir versus Greek Yogurt

    I keep seeing some foods that have probiotics pop up on lists of foods you should eat daily. Kimchi and sauerkraut are always on the list, which I do eat kimchi once a week, but found out that the process of making it requires them to both be high in sodium. I still love eating kimchi once a...

    We just had our first child about a month ago, so I haven't been on the board that much as he's a little bit time consuming and I have less free time. The question I have is my wife has been drinking one cup of rooibos tea every night lately and was wondering if there's anything wrong with...

    flax, chia or hemp seeds?

    I started putting in flax seeds every morning in my shake as I saw it listed on a few sites as things you should eat every day. Then I read things about estrogen and how it might be better to go with chia seeds instead if your a male. So I've been putting in some chia seeds in a shake I make...

    Tea safe from which country?

    I've been drinking green tea from Japan, but after seeing a post here about radiation, it's made me second think drinking green tea from Japan. On weekends I tend to change it up a little bit and drink oolong and most of the oolong tea I've seen comes from China. I honestly don't trust...

    cooking with turmeric

    I keep reading that to get the benefits of turmeric, you need to cook with a fat and black pepper for absorption. My question is does it have to be black pepper? I've been making rice with turmeric and red pepper, because I love the taste. I'm also cooking rice with turmeric and then...

    hepatitis B shot for an infant

    We are pretty much against the hepatitis B shot for our infant who we are expecting in a few weeks. My question is that we are probably going to refuse it at the hospital, but in my city it appears that day care and schools will require it. I have more of an issue giving the shot when his...

    white, black, brown, Red Rice and Turmeric

    Has anybody try Red rice before? Seems like there are a lot of health benefits to it, but not sure if it's any good? I was eating brown rice, but switched over to black rice recently. I'm starting to think I should probably make a mix of black and brown rice, because the black rice I'm...
