Health & Fitness

Health and fitness is achieved through proper nutrition, physical activity, and sufficient rest. It is a measure of the body's ability to function effectively in work, to be healthy, and to resist diseases.

Staying healthy

All adults should avoid inactivity to promote good health mentally and physically.

For substantial health benefits, adults should participate in at least 150 minutes a week of moderate-intensity, or 75 minutes a week of vigorous-intensity aerobic physical activity.

Aerobic activity should be performed in episodes of at least 10 minutes, and preferably, it should be spread throughout the week.

For additional and more extensive health benefits, adults should increase their aerobic physical activity to 300 minutes a week of moderate-intensity, or 150 minutes a week of vigorous-intensity aerobic physical activity.

Additional health benefits are gained by engaging in physical activity beyond this amount.

Adults should also do muscle-strengthening activities that are moderate or high intensity and involve all major muscle groups on 2 or more days a week, as these activities provide additional health benefits.

The Gardasil 9 vaccination provides protection against cervical cancer as well as warts. When a medication or injection is approved by the government, it relies on research to support the claims made by the medications. In this case, the claim is that: In the few thousands of patients that the co...

The short answer I have is No. There are lots of rumors and information on the net about what not to take together with durian and how they may be toxic when taken together. As far as I know, durian is a tropical fruit very rich in nutrients and with high potassiu...

It can be challenging and sometimes impossible even for doctors to be certain about appendicitis. The classical presentation of a central abdominal pain which move towards the right lower abdomen may not happen every time. In general, if you have a pain that is getting worse over...

Based on what I understand from your question, I think you are referring to the term "intestinal metaplasia" which is the presence of normal intestinal cells in your stomach lining. This is a condition most gastroenterologists consider a point of no return in terms of the potential ...

Stuffy Nose While Having Sex? A Singapore Doctor Tells You Why

Stuffy Nose While Having Sex? A Singapore Doctor Tells You Why

As pleasurable as the activity is, sex can be a complex and rather sensitive issue for many couples. An array of factors can come together and lead up to either a good time in bed or awkward situations that you would both rather forget about.

Aside from the more common culprits (such as erectile dysfunction or stress), there is another less severe but rather annoying condition that you may or may not have even heard of: a stuffy blocked nose, occurring during or after sex.

A reader on DoctorxDentist asked about why the nose can become stuffy and blocked after sex. Psychiatrist, Dr Ng Beng Yeong, responded. Here’s what he had to say.

Good question. The middle ear space is behind the eardrums, and it is linked to the back of the nose via the auditory tube or the eustachian tube as shown in the picture below. Sometimes, when you have a bad cold or a sinus infection, the phelgm can travel from the back of the nose, up thr...

Even if you had the chicken pox in your early twenties, the answer is still a yes (or at least a maybe) for someone your age (50s and above). Although it's widely accepted that most people do contract chicken pox only once and you do get immunity against it after, the same vir...

Athlete's foot is a fungal infection of the feet and is a common cause of scaly, itchy rashes on the feet. Feet eczema can also present with itchy scaly rashes on the feet and the rash can look quite similar to fungal infection. If in doubt, a fungal scraping can be ordered and this is a useful ...

Thank you for your enquiry. A common cold is caused by a virus and the symptoms that you've just described, "sore throat, fever, cough, runny nose and muscle ache", are very suggestive of a cold. However, in the early stages, bacterial sinusitis can also present in a similar fash...

I would see a dermatologist, who is also trained in identifying and managing diseases of both the skin and the mucosa (lining of the mouth), for evaluation and management. Lip ulcers that are persistent could be a sign of a viral infection (herpes simplex), a venous malforma...
