hello welcome to healthcare magic,
daily walking for 30 mins is good to start with.If possible walk in gardens ,beaches,or in a joggers park,avoid going to the gym because natural walking we can change the pace according to the body need and is less mechanical and more exhilarating.
Try yoga asanas and pranayam.it will be very benificial for you.
take care

What herbal remedy can I take for depression. I just turned 50 and I have had some personal issues contributing to my depression . I am currently looking for work with no luck. I am a type 2 diabetic, but not on any medication for it, because my last A1C was reasonable and my Endocrinolgist advised I discontinue using Victoza. However, I gained all the weight back - nearly 30 pounds that I lost last year, because I am using food as comfort to deal with my depression and stopped using Victoza, which helped me lose the wight. I have started exercising and meditation, but I still feel down. Can you advise anything that doesn t include Xanax or Prozac, which I have taken in the past and stopped because it made me gain weight? Black cohosh maybe.

How long will joint pain last after taking doxycylcine hydate? I took the medication 2 times a day for seven days for chlamydia. After taking a single dose of antibiotics, the std did not go away. So I waited about three months or more and tested positive for Chlamydian again. So the Dr. prescribed me doxyxylcine. On a couple of occasions, mostly morning, I had nausea. One of the mornings I went to grab the remote and got an alarming pain in my left elbow on both sides of the joint (bicep/tricep). And it has continued to spread throughout my other joints on both sides: knees, knuckles, and elbows. I stopped taking the medication on 5-28-14. I d like to know what s the usual recovery time from this side effect if at all? I work out and I have had to stop all activity due to this problem.

My husband has nausea, stomach cramps and diahorrea, along with generally feeling "unwell". Symptoms have persisted for 5 days or more. He is 53 years old and usually in reasonable health, although he takes medication for high blood pressure and sometimes diclofenac for arthritic-type joint pain. He is a smoker (pipe) and fairly heavy drinker (cider, 4-6 pints per day). He is also a coarse fisherman (lakes and rivers) and works in a dog day-care centre. Any ideas?
