    Everything Health & Wellness

    Thought I'd start a health thread.

    If you guys could, maybe chime in with some workouts, healthy recipes, lifestyle stuff etc. Interested to see what people are up to and I'm looking forward to some healthy recipe ideas. I'm sick of chicken stir frys.

    Also, my workouts are boring, and although there is a million of them on the internet most of them suck or aren't practical so if you're doing something cool at the gym let us know.

    Being told by the Doctor that he recommends that I stop playing basketball was pretty terrible to hear.

    I had just gotten my 3rd Knee surgery about a week ago and I'm 20 years old.

    I don't know where else to put this but I just wanted to vent a little.

    Has anyone ever heard of something like this? It's like I have the knees of a 60 year old.

    I'm still probably gonna play but no more serious games which is gonna suck really bad.
    Not sure where you are located but, if you haven't already, you should get a referral to a sports medicine doctor/clinic. They are generally pretty easy and quick to get in with referrals (as opposed to specialists) and they have more experience than the average physician or most specialists in these areas. Something worth checking into.

    Whoa ! Really sorry to hear that Mack. What were you doing playing on concrete? Or are u overweight?

    Have you got another opinion especially because of the drastic nature of this one?

    And rest for a year or so isnt going to do it (with rehab)?

    You can still stay in the game....become a coach

    Sorry.

    ps...a wild thought...maybe you can write a note to ALex Mckechnie on the Raptors outlining your problem and diagnosis. Just ask for advice on any experience he may have on such a condition and your goal to at least be functional on the bb floor. These guys have probably seen it all and if he is a good shit might reply back at least.

    Not knowing anything about your condition see if there is a connection with anything in the link:

    The whole area of stem cells treatment alongwith HGH therapy are getting quite advanced I hear but not in the mainstream and there could be permissibility issues with their usage in Canada. Anyway...just some food for thought.

    Shit man, sorry to hear that. A buddy of mine was in the same position and ended up getting into coaching and he loves it. Still able to shoot around and run up and down the court, just nothing super heavy.

    Not to mention that I think with proper work to strengthen the muscles around the knee, and perhaps playing in a bit of pain, you can definitely still go out and shoot hoops for sure. I mean, I'm no Doctor, but ya, ya really stinks man.

    Agreed about gluten only being linked with celiac, those with interolerances may be reacting to a different part of the wheat protein, or something else altogether. The thing is that even on a gluten free diet (ie eating a lot of foods marked "gluten free"), apparently many celiacs still suffer from leaky, inflamed gut. And those who think themselves intolerant may not be doing themselves any favours by eating GF.

    My wife is celiac, its a pain to say the least, and she may be doing long term damage when she cheats.
    I feel the pain. Mine is not celiac but has autoimmune issues which requires a whole range of diet watching including gluten. And she pays for it especially after occasions like Christmas.

    I would go absolutely bat crazy if I had to give up on my bagels and other breads and cheeses.

    But vaccines do cause autism. I know this because my co-worker's, brother's, yoga teacher's, cousin has an autistic child who was diagnosed after the needle.

    You are extremely ignorant on the matter. I don't have it but I am allergic to wheat and so I have learned a lot about gluten intolerance, celiac and what have you by nature of the afflictions leading to the same conclusion: don't eat wheat products and products containing wheat. I also know people who are celiac.

    There are many people out there who were misdiagnosed or told there was nothing wrong with them in the past when in actuality they have a gluten intolerance or celiac. Migraine headaches, various levels of chronic skin problems, gastrointestinal problems, etc. Celiac is an autoimmune disease. We're not talking about people hopping into a pair of short shorts because its trendy, we're talking about a real thing that plagues and tortures many and is a growing issue. I suppose you think peanut allergies are bullshit too, lets them die, right? It can't be real because you don't have it.

    Modern medical science allows for more accurate diagnosis. It's called progress and with direction people who suffer have a shot at living life without always being in agony.

    Less than 1% of the population has celiac disease. It is real but it affects very, very few people. Same with peanut allergies that affect less than 1% of the population. NCGS is, as of today, completely unproven by any large epidemiological study. Now, some of these people might have a wheat allergy or a sensitivity to FODMPAS but there is no linkage between gluten and any medical issues outside of actual celiacs.

    Look, if you want to believe that certain foods are cursed and others are magical and eating them makes you feel better good for you. Whatever works. People also believe that vaccines cause autism and that eating vegetables can cure genetic diseases. Again, good for them, but don't confuse superstition and magic with science.

    Nilanka, that's awesome. Everyone and their dog is a fucking celiac now. What a load of crap. I have no doubt that there are a few people affected (like less than 1% of the population) but the rest of it is pure garbage.

    Lol Ok, well my comment was a joke, so I wasn't really looking to do an actual comparison. No doubt its super tough raising kids. But its also pretty tough caring for an animal that at no point will be able to tell you exactly what is wrong or what is bothering them, or what they want, or don't want, or anything.
    So while I agree with your point, I'd also say that non-dog owners have no idea of the magnitude required to properly care for a Dog.

    and plants. i killed a lot of plants before i figured them out
