William Hartnell Doctor Who Episodes

In 1963, BBC aired a new children's show that introduced the world to a mysterious character known only as The Doctor. A grey-haired, professorial figure, nobody quite knew what to make of William Hartnell's Doctor.

Neither did anyone involved in the show, and that's what's so magic about this era of Doctor Who. When you watch Hartnell's episodes, you're witnessing the Who mythology being created before your eyes.

Even the direction of the show was unclear: originally the show was devised as an educational programme with a historical focus, but people like Terry Nation pushed it towards being more of a sci fi adventure.

Below are the five original Doctor adventures you must own!

The First Doctor Top Five Episodes

Doctor Who: The Beginning (An Unearthly Child / The Daleks / The Edge of Destruction) (Stories 1 - 3)

Doctor Who: The Beginning (An Unearthly Child / The Daleks / The Edge of Destruction) (Stories 1 - 3)

The adventure that not only introduced the genocidal pepperpots to the world, but made the first series of Doctor Who a smash hit and secured the show's future. The TARDIS lands on the planet Skaro during the war between the peaceful Thals and the dreaded Daleks. The crew of the TARDIS are forced to join in the fight after their ship is sabotaged - by The Doctor. It's one of the many great things about this classic adventure, as we see what a complex and ambiguous The Doctor actually is. This adventure gives a depth to The Doctor's character that would be explored by ten other actors over the next fifty years.

This DVD contains the second of our recommended stories:

Two concerned schoolteachers follow a young girl to learn more about her mysterious family life. Her "home" is a small police box in a junkyard. But when they open the doors, they meet the girl's grandfather and protector: The Doctor.

Imagine what it would have been like to watch this when it was first broadcast. To watch the doors of the TARDIS swing open and join a confused nation in exclaiming, "but it's bigger on the inside!". The pilot episode lays out a huge amount of the Who universe, introducing him as a time-travelling alien. He demonstrates this by whisking the teachers - Barbara and Ian, The Doctor's first real companions - away on an adventure to the year 100,000 BC.

Doctor Who: The Dalek Invasion of Earth (Story 10)

Doctor Who: The Dalek Invasion of Earth (Story 10)

The second appearance of The Doctor's arch enemies, the Daleks, this is probably the adventure that popularised hiding behind the sofa. It is terrifying: the entire human race enslaved; London as a ghost town; signs saying "It is forbidden to dump bodies in the river"; and the unforgettable sight of a Dalek slowly emerging from the Thames. This is an adventure that will haunt you forever.

Doctor Who - The Tenth Planet [VHS]

Two landmarks for the price of one in this story, which contains the first appearance of the Cybermen. It was also the episode where the producers found a novel solution to the problem of William Hartnell wanting to quit the show: they revealed The Doctor's ability to regenerate, and regenerated him into Patrick Troughton. The bad news is that the final episode of this story has been lost forever, although the remaining episodes are on DVD. The good news? Plans have been announced to recreate the episode using animation.

Doctor Who: The Aztecs - Special Edition (Story 006)

Doctor Who: The Aztecs - Special Edition (Story 006)

Of the historical adventures, this is one of the finest with an incredible performance by Hartnell. The story is not driven by aliens or monsters, but the mechanics and morality of time travel as Barbara attempts to convince the Aztecs to stop making human sacrifices, while The Doctor tells her it's impossible to change the course of history. Few other adventures over the next 50 years were based so much on concepts and emotions.

The Five Patrick Troughton Doctor Who Adventures You Must Own!

BBC in the 60s was a place of incredible innovation and bizarre decisions. Television was unlike anything else in history, and the staff and crew of BBC found themselves having to make everything up as they went along.

One of the great flashes of inspiration, and one of the keys to Doctor Who's lasting success, was the idea of Regeneration. With the ageing Hartnoll retiring from the role, the show's producers needed a way to explain the appearance of a new actor. Hence the ability of Timelords to regenerate; in this instance, regenerating into the second Doctor, Patrick Troughton.

The real genius of regeneration is that it's not just the Doctor's body that's affected, but also his mind, and the joy of a Regeneration is to see what kind of man the Doctor will become. Hartnoll's stern, manipulative grandfather was gone; Troughton was the "cosmic hobo", a good-natured uncle who could be scatty and forgetful at times. It paved the way for future Doctors like Tom Baker, David Tennant and Matt Smith, who focused on the Doctor's likeability and his affection for humans.

There were some terrible decisions made at BBC in the 60s as well though. The master tapes for many of Troughton's episodes were destroyed in the 70s, so a lot of the second Doctor's adventures are lost forever. Some have survived though, so here is a guide to the remaining adventures of one of the truly great Doctors.

Doctor Who: The Tomb of the Cybermen (Story 37) - Special Edition

Doctor Who: The Tomb of the Cybermen (Story 37) - Special Edition

Having caused his regeneration in The Tenth Planet, the Doctor finds himself battling Cybermen again in this classic adventure. A team of archaeologists on the planet Telos have uncovered a tomb full of the things, except it's not a tomb but a suspended animation chamber filled with functioning Cybermen ready to wage war. It's a cracking story with excellent writing and visuals that pay homage to Fritz Lang's movie Metropolis.

Doctor Who: The War Games (Story 50)

Doctor Who: The War Games (Story 50)

The final Troughton adventure and it's got a plot that rivals any classic Star Trek episode: an alien superbeing is kidnapping soldiers from all of Earth's previous wars and forcing them to recreate battles so that he can raise an army from the survivors. It's also the first story to explore the Timelords and Gallifrey, ending with Troughton exiled on earth, ready to regenerate into Jon Pertwee.

Doctor Who: The Mind Robber (Story 45)

Doctor Who: The Mind Robber (Story 45)

Following a catastrophic accident, the TARDIS arrives in a strange, blank world populated by fictional characters. This is a world where stories come to life and the Doctor must outwit The Master (no, not that one, a different Master) if he and his companions are to escape. It's a terrifically fun adventure, slightly psychedelic and shows off just how creative the writers of the show were.

Doctor Who: The Invasion (Story 46)

Doctor Who: The Invasion (Story 46)

One of the stories affected by the junking of tapes, the restored version of this adventure uses animation to flesh out the episodes where only the audio track has survived. The story sees The Doctor attempting to foil an alien plan to take over the world - something that happens every week in Nu Who but was a novelty for the second Doctor. The brigadier makes his second appearance in this episode and UNIT are introduced for the first time. It's often praised for its excellent direction by Douglas Camfield.

Doctor Who: The Krotons (Story 47)

Doctor Who: The Krotons (Story 47)

Who is famous for some very dodgy monster costumes and the Krotons rate fairly highly on that list, essentially being just large tin cans. But the story is good fun with shades of the original The Daleks adventure, with the Doctor attempting to rally a pacifist race of aliens who are under attack from the aforementioned tin cans.

Jon Pertwee Doctor Who Adventures You Will Want To Own!

Like Dorothy arriving in Oz, the Third Doctor found himself in a world that had suddenly gone from boring black and white to glorious color. Jon Pertwee's fondly remembered Doctor was modern in other ways too, a sexy, swaggering swashbuckler with a ruffled shirt and badass Venusian Karate to subdue his opponents.

This was a Doctor with elements of other TV characters like The Saint, although modern audiences might find themselves thinking of Austin Powers.

Pertwee was a far more physical Doctor than his predecessors, the first one to really engage in that popular Timelord pastime of running down corridors (often pursued by Daleks). His companions got a little sexier too, with the TARDIS being brightened up by the presence of Liz Shaw and blonde bombshell Jo Grant.

Towards the end of his tenure, Jon Pertwee joined forces with perhaps the most beloved companion of all time: Elisabeth Sladen's wonderful Sarah Jane Smith.

Meanwhile, the Who universe continued to expand. Stranded on earth at the beginning, Pertwee's Doctor finds himself working closely with The Brigadier and UNIT, while the mythology of the Timelords is expanded upon with the introduction of Gallifrey and perhaps The Doctor's most deadliest enemy: The Master.

Here are five of the finest adventures from a beloved era:

Doctor Who: Spearhead from Space (Story 51) - Special Edition

Doctor Who: Spearhead from Space (Story 51) - Special Edition

Evil mannequins featured in two of the big Doctor Who reboots. Christopher Eccleston faced down the Autons when the show relaunched in 2005, but they were introduced in this story, the first adventure of the Third Doctor. The Autons are aliens with the power to control plastic, leading to a genuinely creepy army of shop dummies attempting to take over England. A great story, a great introduction and a nice demonstration of how Doctor Who can make mundane things seem scary and exciting.

Roger Delgado's portrayal of The Master is what secured the characters place in Who history. Maniacal and scheming, but also quite funny and charming, he seemed such a natural counterpoint to The Doctor that you wonder why he didn't appear sooner. Here, he is on top form, attempting to manipulate a nuclear war on Earth while running rings around The Doctor.

Doctor Who: The Three Doctors (Story 65) - Special Edition

Doctor Who: The Three Doctors (Story 65) - Special Edition

The first of the anniversary episodes and sadly the only one with all of the Doctors to date, The Three Doctors contributes a huge amount to Who history. The legendary Timelord Omega is attacking Gallifrey and, in an act of desperation, The Doctor enlists his previous incarnations to fight the menace. A sickly William Hartnoll is only able to contribute by video screen, but Pertwee and Troughton have great fun together, and the dialogue between the three is wonderful.

The Five Tom Baker Doctor Who Adventures You Must Own!

Quite simply, for me Tom Baker is Doctor Who. The other actors to play the role have either paved the way for him, or expanded on the template he created. Either way, it was Baker's epic run as in the 70s that made The Doctor as important a science fiction icon as Captain Kirk or Darth Vader.

Tom Baker's Doctor was, as the current Doctor once described himself, "a madman in a box". With eager eyes, a wide grin, a ridiculous scarf and a bag of jelly babies, he was as funny and likeable as the Second Doctor, but with a keen intelligence and an ability to find a solution when all hope seemed to be lost.

This era sees some of Doctor Who's finest writing as well, with an editorial team that included the legendary Douglas Adams. It is universally beloved and immensely enjoyable; even when the costumes look dodgy and there's too much running down corridors, the very presence of Tom Baker makes every episode a classic.

Picking a top five is difficult, but let's give it a go.

Doctor Who: Genesis of the Daleks (Story 78)

Doctor Who: Genesis of the Daleks (Story 78)

The Doctor is called upon by The Timelords to put an end to the galatic menace once and for all: by travelling back to the moment when the Daleks were first created and stopping it. This is one of the greatest Doctor Who stories ever and absolute heaven for Whovians as we see the origins of these fearsome adversaries and meet their creators, the horrific Davros.

Doctor Who: City of Death (Story 105)

Doctor Who: City of Death (Story 105)

The only full episode written by Douglas Adams, this is a wonderful timey-wimey adventure that would inform later stories like "Blink". Filmed in the very sci-fi location of, er, Paris, it's a terrific story that gives Baker a chance to really show off what's so great and engaging about him.

Doctor Who: New Beginnings (The Keeper of Traken / Logopolis / Castrovalva) (Stories 115 - 117)

A Doctor regeneration is now a national news event, with the new Doctor appearing in all the papers months before the old Doctor meets his event. In the 70s, this wasn't the case and the nation's heart broke when Tom Baker fell from a tower at the end and regenerated into Peter Davidson. But there's a lot more to this story than the regeneration, with an unusually desperate and frustrated Master running around on a planet at the edge of the universe, where monks keep the universe in balance by performing complex equations.

Doctor Who: The Talons of Weng-Chiang (Special Edition) (Story 91)

Doctor Who: The Talons of Weng-Chiang (Special Edition) (Story 91)

A superb Sherlock Holmes pastiche, this sees the Doctor on the trail of a mysterious kidnapper in Victorian London. The title character of this episode is, by modern standards, immensely racist with some very British actors playing Chinese characters. If you can forgive that though, you'll get a cracking detective story, with a deerstalker-wearing, scenery-chewing Tom Baker relishing his role as the great detective.

Buy Now

Doctor Who: Pyramids of Mars (Story 82)

Doctor Who: Pyramids of Mars (Story 82)

A firm fan favourite, Pyramids Of Mars allows Doctor Who to have the best of both worlds: the nice period setting of a country manor in 1911, which is linked by an ancient Egyptian relic to a more sci-fi setting on Mars. It's a very tight, tidy adventure with The Doctor showing a lot more focus than normal, much to the relief of Sarah Jane Smith.

Dr Who - Peter Davison Best Episodes

Peter Davison's time in the TARDIS is a curious one. He was never quite embraced by audiences, who were either too familiar with him from other roles or simply upset at the departure of Tom Baker. That continues today, with few fans rating him as their favourite Doctor, even though at least one of his adventures is often ranked as the greatest Doctor Who story of all time.

Davison travelled with a number of companions, from Peri, who everyone fancied, to Adric, who everyone hated. The Fifth Doctor was a little more impatient than previous incarnations, a little quicker to anger, a vastly intelligent mind that got annoyed by stupid humans who couldn't keep up.

Even if the Fifth Doctor is not the most beloved, the era itself is something special, with ferociously good writing and stories that weren't afraid of being a bit complex. Here are the top five that you need to see:

Doctor Who: The Caves of Androzani (Special Edition) (Story 136)

Doctor Who: The Caves of Androzani (Special Edition) (Story 136)

A recent poll named this as the best Doctor Who story of all time. And what a story it is; an intelligent, cynical political drama where the lines between good and evil are forever being blurred. The Doctor and Peri arrive on Androzani and find they've been fatally poisoned. In order to survive, they have to negotiate some kind of peace between ruthless industrialist Morgus and deformed rebel leader Sharaz Jek. It's hands-down the best Doctor Who script ever, and Davidson plays it to perfection.

Doctor Who: Resurrection Of The Daleks (Special Edition) (Story 134)

Doctor Who: Resurrection Of The Daleks (Special Edition) (Story 134)

The Daleks had actually faded into the background of Doctor Who a little during Tom Baker's era. This adventure saw them return with a bang in what is a remarkably violent tale. The Daleks, aided by their creator Davros, are kidnapping important historical figures in an attempt to rebuild their empire. Notable for being the last appearance of Tegan, the razor-tongued Australian companion who joined the TARDIS during the Baker era.

Doctor Who: The Black Guardian Trilogy (Mawdryn Undead / Terminus / Enlightenment) (Stories 126 - 128)

Doctor Who: The Black Guardian Trilogy (Mawdryn Undead / Terminus / Enlightenment) (Stories 126 - 128)

Mawdryn Undead is one of the Black Guardian stories that formed a large chunk of Davison's stay, this episode is notable for introducing Turlough, the alien schoolboy who starts as a traitor before being saved by The Doctor. Turlough is one of the most complicated characters to ever step inside the TARDIS, forever battling with his own true nature. His presence shows just how adventurous the writers of this season were when it came to tackling serious drama.

Doctor Who: Earthshock (Story 122)

Doctor Who: Earthshock (Story 122)

There is a particular reason that Who fans love this episode, and they're not proud of it. First of all, let's point out that it's a really good Cybermen story, with those naughty guys in tinfoil hijacking a space cruiser and preparing to crash it into the Earth. There's some great dialogue between The Doctor and Cyberleader. But the reason Who fans love it? Adric, one of the least popular companions ever, gets killed at the end. Told you we're not proud of it.

Doctor Who: The Five Doctors (Story 130)

Doctor Who: The Five Doctors (Story 130)

Another anniversary episode, this one cheats slightly. William Hartnell was unavailable on account of being dead at that point, so another actor, Richard Hurndall, fills in for him. Tom Baker had no such excuse, but chose to stay away for his own reasons, so his appearance is limited to some unused footage from an episode of Shada. It's a great Gallifrey story in its own right, building up Timelord history and explaining the legend of Rassilon. Just to make fans love it that little bit more, it's got both Daleks and Cybermen thrown in, as well as some help from The Master.

The Five Colin Baker Doctor Who Adventures You Must Own!

The Sixth Doctor's tenure in the TARDIS is easily the most controversial, and almost killed off the series for good.

From dressing like a deranged jester to attempting to strangle his companions, Colin Baker pushed the boundaries of the character of The Doctor. His series is, it has to be admitted, wildly inconsistent, and yet you can't help but wonder what would have happened if his unhinged, aggressive Doctor was allowed to develop a little further.

We'll never know. The suits at BBC hated the Sixth Doctor, and pulled the plug on the show so violently that Colin didn't even appear in his regeneration scene. Almost 30 years later, he's still famously bitter about the experience but he's left behind a legacy of some of the most interesting Doctor Who adventures in the show's history.

Here is a small selection of Colin Baker stories that you should watch while making your own mind up about his contribution:

Doctor Who: The Trial of a Time Lord (Stories 144 - 147)

Doctor Who: The Trial of a Time Lord (Stories 144 - 147)

There are many flaws in this adventure, most famously the casting of fading pop idol Bonnie Langford as The Doctor's Companion. But it attempts to do something that's never been attempted before, which is to tell one season-long story. The Doctor is put on trial by The Timelords and a number of his travels are submitted as evidence, allowing mini-adventures like Mindwarp, Terror Of The Vervoids and The Mysterious Planet to be told. The prosecuting counsel is a Timelord known as The Valeyard, who has a shocking secret that still haunts modern Doctor Who stories.

Doctor Who: Vengeance on Varos (Special Edition) (Story 139)

Doctor Who: Vengeance on Varos (Special Edition) (Story 139)

Although this is a classic, it was one of the reasons that BBC execs took such a dislike to Colin Baker's Who. One of the darkest adventures ever, this strangely prophetic tale sees a world dominated by TV. Viewers are hooked up to an endless stream of garbage, and they get to vote on what happens, including being able to torture or kill the people on their screens. Remember, this was nearly 20 years before Simon Cowell got on TV.

Doctor Who: Revelation of the Daleks (Story 143)

Doctor Who: Revelation of the Daleks (Story 143)

Another great Dalek story, this actually sees the Doctor caught between two warring factions of the genocidal pepperpots, with Davros leading one side and the Dalek Emperor leading the other. The intrigue and politics are allowed to build nicely in a story that's excellently directed by Graeme Harper, who also made Caves Of Androzani and returned to the director's chair for many of David Tennant's episodes.

The Rani is a character that should be an important part of the Whoniverse, but isn't. A sexy, intelligent renegade Timelady with elements of both The Master and River Song, The Rani perhaps suffered from appearing in some of the weaker Who episodes. This isn't one of them, and the chemistry here between Kate O'Mara's Rani and Anthony Ainley's Master is superb.

Sylvester McCoy Episodes To Watch!

Poor old Sylvester McCoy. He faced the most deadly enemies in the Doctor's history, and lost. No, it wasn't the Daleks or Cybermen, but an apathetic public and BBC executives who had grown disinterested in the show.

Colin Baker's time in the TARDIS had done irreparable damage to the Doctor Who brand, the BBC had begun tinkering with the format and broadcast slots, and after 25 years on the air the show was starting to look tired. Oh, and Bonnie Langford was still the companion.

McCoy can hold his head up proud though. He was a terrific Doctor in his own right, with just the right air of mystery, intelligence and alien-ness, and he probably would have been beloved if he had arrived ten years earlier. The eighth Doctor got off to a shaky start in terms of stories, but was beginning to rediscover some of its previous form.

It wasn't to be though. McCoy is one of the most overlooked Doctors in the show's history. He didn't even get a proper regeneration scene, and had to settle for being shot by gangsters at the start of the Doctor Who TV movie a few years later. Does he deserve to remembered? Yes, and here are five reasons why:

Doctor Who: The Curse of Fenric (Story 158)

Doctor Who: The Curse of Fenric (Story 158)

Although this has many scifi elements, it's really an old-fashioned English ghost story in the style of MR James. The Doctor and Ace arrive in World War II where codebreakers are using a supercomputer to decrypt Nazi cyphers. But in their spare time they're also decoding some ancient Norse ruins, which warn of a great evil known as Fenric. He's a vampire (sorry, haemovore) with the ability to control humans, making them his 'wolves'. A spooky story that was possibly too intelligent for a tea-time kids show, but is a real pleasure on DVD.

Doctor Who: Survival (Story 159)

The final episode of classic Doctor Who, and the final episode of what is sometimes known as "the Ace trilogy", where the Doctor's companion is seen to really grow and develop in way that's directly related to her adventures in time and space. Survival pits The Doctor against The Master on a planet where violence is mandatory. It's a very confident episode that will leave you wondering why McCoy wasn't given just one more season.

The eighth Doctor Who was of course Paul McGann who we only ever encounter in Doctor Who The Movie. It cannot rate amongsth the Best Ever because in so many ways for the dedicated Whovian it is truly awful!

Christopher Eccleston As Doctor Who

The Complete First Series (2006)

Christopher Eccleston and Russell T Davies had previously collaborated on the mini-series Messiah, where Eccleston played a man who may or may not be the Second Coming. This was the perfect warm-up for Doctor Who in many ways; his character in Messiah was confused, conflicted, barely understood his own powers, loved humanity with all his heart but was quick to anger when he saw greed and injustice.

Eccleston's Ninth Doctor was bruised and battle-weary. As the series went on, we learned more about the offstage drama that had occurred while the show was off air. The biggest war in history - the Time War between the Timelords and Daleks - had been fought and left The Doctor as the only survivor, having destroyed both his nemeses and his own people.

Entrusted with the task of healing of wounded soul was former teen pop icon Billie Piper. Her role as Rose Tyler was a revelation, showing her impressive acting skills in delivering humour and pathos.

Eccleston was critical to making the reboot of Doctor Who a success , but sadly the Ninth Doctor's adventure came to an end after just one series. Here are the five stories that make it a series worth revisiting:

Doctor Who: The Complete First Series

Doctor Who: The Complete First Series

1) Dalek

So, The Doctor wasn't quite the only survivor of The Time War. A millionaire with a penchant for alien artefacts recovers a broken Dalek, and an act of compassion by Rose restores it to full power, leading to a breathless underground shootout and The Doctor forced to face his own morality. It's a superb mix of emotion and things being exterminated, a true modern classic.

2) The Empty Child / The Doctor Dances

Steven Moffat's first contribution to the new series is one of his best, a deeply creepy tale of Blitz-era London under assault from malfunctioning nanobots. An excellent story with terrifying baddies is what you expect from Moffat; he also throws in an uplifting ending and the first appearance of pansexual swashbuckler Captain Jack Harkness.

3) Rose

"Hello. I'm The Doctor. Run for your life." With that, The Doctor was reborn. This season opener sees The Doctor facing down the Autons once more, but really its a celebration of his return to TV screens. Even now, there's still a thrill that comes from watching the TARDIS doors swing open once more.

4) Bad Wolf/The Parting Of The Ways

It starts as a satire on reality TV and ends in one of the Doctor's most dramatic battles ever, with Eccleston showing us a passionate, snarling, angry Doctor the likes of which we've never seen before. A fantastic way for him to bow out of the role, which he does at the end of the story, allowing us a quick glimpse of David Tennant right at the end.

5) Father's Day

RTD was often criticised for shows in his era being too emotional. This is one of the most emotional of all, but it works wonderfully with some great digressions about the nature of time. Rose succumbs to the temptation of using the TARDIS to prevent her father's death. At first she's overjoyed, but soon she learns that only a Timelord knows how to meddle with time.

David Tennant's Doctor Who Specials

The Tenth Doctor caused a lot of division in the world Doctor Who. Hardcore Whovians didn't like a Doctor who was so young, energetic and handsome. Everybody else loved him... mainly because he was young, energetic and handsome.

Tennant's Doctor was the most popular in the show's 50 year history, a smash hit in its native UK and helping to bring the sci fi show to American audiences.

David Tennant started and ended his Doctor Who career with hour-long special episodes. "The Christmas Invasion" begins with the Doctor, still recovering from his recent regeneration, unconscious for most of the episode while Rose (Billie Piper) battles against the hoards of Sygorax who are trying to take over the world while the Doctor is indisposed.

It's memorable for the excellent "What kind of man am I?" scene at the end, where in just a few moments David Tennant explains exactly what his tenth Doctor is going to be like. It's available as part of the Doctor Who S2 box set.

Tennant's time in the TARDIS came to an end in 2008 with a series of five hour-long specials. The doctor who david tennant specials are available in a single set on DVD.

Doctor Who: The Complete Specials (The Next Doctor / Planet of the Dead / The Waters of Mars / The End of Time Parts 1 and 2) [Blu-ray]

Doctor Who: The Complete Specials (The Next Doctor / Planet of the Dead / The Waters of Mars / The End of Time Parts 1 and 2) [Blu-ray]

It all begins with the very cute The Next Doctor, a fun steampunk adventure when The Doctor, still grieving the loss of his most recent companion, arrives in Victorian London to discover the presence of Cybermen. Except the Cybermen are already being battled by a man called The Doctor, played by Neil Morrissey.

While they attempt to unravel the mystery of the two doctors, they stumble upon a plot involving kidnapped children and the construction of the largest Cyberman in the universe.

It was followed up by Planet Of The Dead, where David Tennant teamed up with a Michelle Ryan, previously seen in The Bionic Woman. Ryan plays a very sexy, rich cat burglar who has just pulled off the theft of the century and is escaping on a London bus. But when The Doctor climbs aboard, you know this is no ordinary bus trip. They are transported to a desert world with no tools, no water and a horde of hungry aliens ready to chow down on them.

The Waters of Mars is very different from the previous specials. Set in the future, this extremely dark tale sees early human settlers on Mars discover a lethal virus in underground water deposits which turns them into violent zombies. Genuinely scary throughout, this episode ends with The Tenth Doctor facing some of the most difficult choices of his career.

For Tennant's swansong, The End of Time pt 1 & 2, he faced off against his oldest enemy, The Master.

Matt Smith As Doctor Who

The genius of Matt Smith is that, even though he's the youngest Doctor ever, he feels like the oldest. There's something very frail and tired about him, helped by the tweed and bowtie, and it's easy to believe that he's seen almost 1,000 years of history.

The real excitement of the Matt Smith era though has not been The Doctor himself, but the man behind the scenes, Steven Moffat. Moffat has an incredible track record in TV writing that includes some of the best recent episodes like Blink and The Empty Child. He wheels out the big guns for his era in charge of the show, giving humour, excitement, adventure, and the unusual decision to give The Doctor a newly-wed couple as companions: Amy and Rory Pond.

Smith had some big shoes to fill, given how beloved David Tennant was. He's shown himself to be more than up to the task though, and Doctor Who is enjoying a golden age the likes of which haven't been seen since the heyday of Tom Baker.

He's still piloting the TARDIS - with the odd driving lesson from River Song - but let's look at his best adventures to date:

1) The Eleventh Hour

Moffat had been waiting his whole life for this moment: The Doctor, done his way. And he didn't disappoint, with an electrifying opening episode. After a crash-landing and a difficult regeneration, the Doctor finds the Earth is about to be destroyed in order to capture an escaped prisoner. And all The Doctor has to help prevent this catastrophe is the feisty Amy Pond, and a Post Office. Which is shut. One of the most enjoyable Who stories ever.

2) The Doctor's Wife

Classic Who could boast of Douglas Adams, but Nu Who now has another writing legend on its script team in the shape of Neil Gaiman. His first Who story is everything you'd expect from Gaiman, and so much more. The TARDIS is lured to the domain of a creature that feasts on Timelords, and the TARDIS itself has its soul captured in the body of a human woman. After almost 1,000 years, the TARDIS finally gets to tell The Doctor how it feels about him, and the results are unforgettable.

3) The Angels Take Manhattan

More emotion in this glorious Moffat-penned adventure of a whole army of Weeping Angels seizing control of 30s New York. Rory is abducted by the Angels and The Doctor and Amy must rescue him from a city that's under siege. The ending is utterly heartbreaking, and it also features the best use of the Statue of Liberty since Planet Of The Apes.

4) The Impossible Astronaut/Day Of The Moon

Moffat may have invented one of The Doctor's most terrifying adversaries with the Weeping Angels, but he wasn't content to stop there. The Silence are, if anything, even scarier. Weird, mouthless creatures in black suits, they feast on humans, shape world events and have a power that means they can never be stopped: if you stop looking at them, you forget they exist.

5) A Christmas Carol

Maybe the most retold story in history, it's surprising that Doctor Who had never done a version of a Christmas Carol before. But Matt Smith gets the job of unlocking Scrooge's heart at Christmas Eve, or risk losing Amy and Rory forever.

These and all the other great stories can be found in the following DVDs

What Is The Best Weight Loss Diet

In today's society that are a lot of folks that would like to improve their health, fitness level, and transform their lives through weight loss and diet. The challenge for most people is figuring out exactly what they should do and what's the best strategy to use in order to lose weight. One very important tactic that you can implement in order to start seeing results quickly is to begin by approaching weight loss and improving your health as a lifestyle change. This approach will help you to develop new and empowering habits.

The Magic Pill

The obesity epidemic is a very real problem in American society and most people are on a constant lookout for the next 'big thing' or 'product' that will help them lose weight. It is our nature as people to look for the easy way out in everything and weight loss is no different. This attitude makes us search for that magic pill, diet, or product that will produce the results we desire when the truth is that we are the ones that have the power to change our body. Manufacturers of pills and products will have you believe through their advertising that their product is the magic pill that you're looking for but in reality this is not the case. Now there are some legitimate products that can help you with weight loss but they're not to be solely relied up for long term results.

Now although there isn't a magic pills there are actions you can take to help speed up your weight loss.

1- "Clean the house"

Okay okay, I know this is a vague ridiculous statement but allow me to clarify. I am certain in your quest for weight loss that you've decided to adopt new eating habits and I am assuming that your current diet is not the same as how you plan to eat to lose weight. So go through the house, pantry, living room anywhere in your home that you keep food, drinks or snacks and get rid of ALL ITEMS that are not part of your new eating plan. You can't keep anything that has the potential to derail you from your goals. You need to remove the temptation from your living space and create a supportive environment by only keeping the foods in your home that you know will help you to achieve your goals. Donate the food to a soup kitchen or someone else.

2- "Move"

Hopefully by now you notice that I have a knack for a somewhat ridiculous way of stating things. Laugh at me and read on. By move I simply mean exercise (I know I could just state that, right?). Some people down play the importance of exercise in weight loss program because there are countless people who lose weight without exercising. But there will come a time when the weight loss will stop and a plateau will be reached. It is at this point that the light bulb goes off and people start exercising. You need to build muscle tissue to replace the fat that you're losing. No one wants to be skinny and flabby. We want to be healthy, fit, and firm.

3- "Realistic Goals"

This is obvious but you would be surprised how many people screw this up without realizing. For example, I want to lose 30 pounds in 30 days to fit into that dress for my reunion. I know this is an incredibly desirable goal and people do achieve it but most times it's not lasting, sustainable or healthy. A realistic approach would be to focus on short term and long term goals and incorporate exercise goals into the weight loss goals. And give yourself time. Remember how long it took you to gain the weight you want to lose and keep that in mind because if you gained 30 pounds in six months do you think you could lose it in 30 days? Doesn't make sense does it?

4- "Talk to a trainer"

You'll notice I say 'talk' to a trainer not necessarily 'hire' a trainer. Although I'm a personal trainer I will say frankly that a lot of people don't need one on one instruction but what you do need is some advice on exercise selection, program design and exercise performance (doing the exercises properly). Most of this information can be discussed verbally as opposed to actually training. You may need to meet with a trainer for a few times and then you're ready to go on your own.

5- "Don't Starve"

I am sure it's not the first time you've heard that but you may be wondering how can I not starve when I'm going to be eating less than I have in the past? And also what about cravings? Well studies show that most cravings last about two minutes so the next time that you're craving something wait a couple of minutes until it passes and try to determine exactly what you're craving. Maybe your body is trying to send you a legitimate message of some nutrient you're lacking. If the craving does not go away, drink 16 ounces of water and then take a walk. As you're walking use your imagination to visualize the you that you want to be.

6- "Keep A Journal"

This will help you to chart your progress as well as be a place where you can be truly intimate with yourself. You would be surprised how good it feels when you have a place where you can be truly honest with you. Sometimes getting things out on paper helps you to deal with them and makes you more self aware. This journal will be extremely powerful because you would have a record of your success and will allow you to repeat the process if necessary and know exactly what works for you. There are a few ways you can keep this journal. You can simply write in a notebook or some people even start their own blog to share with the world.

7- "Rest And Relaxation"

Stress can cause weight gain. Read that again. You can be on a strict diet, good exercise program and still not lose weight if you don't learn to manage everyday stress effectively. Find a few different outlets to release your stress. You can try massage therapy, more sleep, or some people find exercise helps them to release stress. Whatever you do is personal preference but you must reduce your stress.

There is no One way to lose weight. If there was, there would only be one diet, or one exercise program. For some people diet and exercise is not enough. In these cases there may be a psychological or medical reason that prevents weight loss. Psychologically the self image which is the image we have of ourselves affects how we look. How we 'see' ourselves is what we become. Now if there aren't any mental issues then it's possible that you could have something physically wrong that is preventing you from losing weight and you should check with your Physician.

Liver And Diabetes

Millions of people around the world are diagnosed with diabetes, also known as diabetes mellitus, every year. It is a condition in which a person s blood sugar level is higher than is considered healthy. This situation arises when your body is unable to produce insulin or fails to respond to the insulin produced. Diabetes mellitus can be divided into two groups: Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes. In case of Type 1 diabetes the body is unable to produce insulin, while Type 2 occurs when the body is unable to respond to the insulin produced. Type 2 diabetes can be treated by maintaining a healthy diet and monitoring blood sugar level regularly. However, when the condition is progressive you need a suitable treatment for Type 2 diabetes so that you can manage the condition properly.

There is a wide range of treatments available from which you can choose depending on your needs and severity of your disease. The most reliable and safest medication for Type 2 diabetes is Metformin. It belongs to the class of medications called biguanides, meaning it lowers blood sugar levels by reducing the amount of glucose produced by the liver. It also helps in increasing insulin sensitivity along with lowering LDL cholesterol and increasing HDL cholesterol. LDL cholesterol is considered bad for your health while HDL cholesterol helps in weight loss. Metformin does not cause weight gain, unlike other diabetic medications. It may even cause weight loss in Type 2 diabetic patients who are overweight.

Although, metformin anti-diabetes tablet are effective, it is not prescribed for Type 1 diabetes as it can only be treated with insulin injections. It is generally advised to take this medication twice a day in the form of a 500mg tablet. You should not take the medication longer than the prescribed time by doctor as it may cause serious side effects. You need to take this tablet with food and it should not be chewed. For maximum effectiveness, you should monitor your blood glucose levels regularly.

This medication can cause some common side effects which include nausea, weakness, vomiting, diarrhoea, abdominal discomfort, gastritis and headaches. However, there are some more rare side effects which you need to take care of. Metformin tablets can cause hypoglycaemia i.e. low blood sugar sometimes. Hypoglycaemia can cause dizziness, vertigo, sweating, hunger, tingling around the mouth and pale skin. It is always recommended to consult a doctor if you experience any unusual symptoms during the course of the treatment. Metformin may also cause a severe condition known as lactic acidosis which refers to the build-up of lactic acid in the bloodstream. It can be avoided by consuming less alcohol while taking the medication.

Precautions with Metformin:

  • You should not take this medication if you are suffering from kidney problems.
  • Avoid this medication if you drink excessively on a daily basis.
  • Do not take this medication if you have a medical history of congestive heart failure.

Overall, metformin works wonders for diabetic patients when accompanied with a proper diet. Find more information on Metformin tablets at euroclinix.net.

High Liver Enzyme Causes

CoQ10 is a nutrient produced naturally in the body and found in the energy-producing centers of the cell, called mitochondria. CoQ10 plays an important role in energy metabolism and production of Adenosine Triphosphate (ATP), a basic energy molecule that provides energy to each cell of the body.

The highest amount of CoQ10 is found in the heart, kidneys, and liver. The amount of CoQ10 in the body decreases with age, stress, and through poor diet, necessitating supplementation. Using CoQ10 as a high blood pressure treatment also requires extra doses through supplements. So how exactly does CoQ10 improve your body's ability to cope with modern life, and lower high blood pressure?
CoQ10 helps widen arteries

A number of studies suggest that CoQ10 is an effective high blood pressure treatment by widening the brachial arteries. This increases the flow of blood by up to 38% and so lowering blood pressure. CoQ10 supplementation also helps in the treatment of hypertension(http://www.mitamins.com/disease/High-Blood-Pressure.html) by inhibiting inflammation of the arteries, which would otherwise constrict blood flow and increase pressure.
CoQ10 is a super antioxidant

A randomized, double-blind, controlled trial suggested a role for CoQ10 in the high blood pressure treatment removing cholesterol(http://www.mitamins.com/disease/High-Cholesteol.html), a major cause of high blood pressure, from the blood vessels. CoQ10 is involved in the oxidation of cholesterol and the lowering of levels in the blood.
CoQ10 strengthens the heart

CoQ10 also protects the cells from free radical damage and strengthens the muscles, including the heart muscle, making it better cope with hypertension. If the heart has less strain on it then it is less likely to develop disease and the risk of heart attack is also reduced.

Research clearly shows that CoQ10 lowers blood pressure, and is an effective treatment for people with mild hypertension. Improvements in the condition of the patient were seen in 6-8 weeks. However it is still not completely clear that CoQ10 deficiency can cause high blood pressure in the first place. Therefore, even with a normal amount of CoQ10 in the body, extra supplements can help in high blood pressure treatment(http://www.mitamins.com/disease/High-Blood-Pressure.html). It's certainly less of a lifestyle change than giving up your job, and cheaper than air tickets to Tibet.

What Do Elevated Liver Enzymes Indicate

No serious expert questions the dangers of asbestos exposure to people. In fact, there is a growing consensus as to how dangerous the Mesothelioma menace has become. One interesting study is called, Asbestos bodies in pulmonary hilar lymph nodes. by Roggli VL, Benning TL. - Mod Pathol. 1990 Jul;3(4):513-7. Here is an excerpt: Abstract - Asbestos bodies (AB) have long been recognized in light microscopic (LM) sections of pulmonary hilar lymph nodes (LN) from patients with asbestos-related diseases, but the presence of AB on LM has not been correlated with the lung AB burden. The purpose of the present study was to determine whether AB in histologic sections of LN are indicative of heavy lung asbestos burdens. Twenty cases (17 with asbestosis, 15 with carcinoma of the lung, and two with malignant pleural mesothelioma) with at least one AB on a hilar LN section were identified. Bleach digestion of lung tissue in 15 cases demonstrated a median of 24,000 AB/g by LM and 44,000 AB/g by scanning electron microscopy. Digestion of hilar nodes demonstrated 21,800, 15,500, and 3,200 AB/g by LM in three cases which had lung burdens of 22,000, 481,000, and 5470 AB/g, respectively. A fourth LN specimen contained 322,000 AB/g in a case with no lung available to digest. Mean AB lengths in the LN in three cases were 48, 45, and 27 microns. Fourteen control cases of men over 50 without known asbestos exposure or asbestos-related disease had no AB in LN sections even after staining for iron. Among fourteen patients with parietal pleural plaques and an elevated lung asbestos body content, AB were observed in iron-stained LN sections in only two cases. These two patients had 3240 and 610 AB/g lung tissue, respectively (normal range 0 to 20 AB/g). We conclude that the finding of AB on a histologic section of hilar LN is generally indicative of a heavy lung AB burden.

Another interesting study is called, Asbestos exposure, smoking habits, and cancer incidence among production and maintenance workers in an electrochemical plant by Bjrn Hilt MD1, Sverre Langd MD, MSc, Aage Andersen, and Jan Rosenberg MD - American Journal of Industrial Medicine - Volume 8, Issue 6, pages 565577, 1985. Here is an excerpt: Abstract - The incidence of cancer was studied in a cohort of 287 men who were exposed to asbestos at a nitric acid production plant from 1928 onwards. During the observation period from 1953 through 1980 all cancer cases among the cohort members were identified in The Cancer Registry. For the whole cohort 42 cases of cancer were observed versus 30.6 expected. The figures for cancer of the lungs and pleura combined were 17 observed versus 3.7 expected. The corresponding figures for a heavily exposed subcohort were 11 observed and 1.2 expected. In that group there was also an increased incidence of colon cancer with 3 cases observed against 0.8 cases expected. Within the whole cohort four cases of pleural and one case of peritoneal malignant mesothelioma were found. There was also an increased incidence of malignant melanoma of the skin with 3 cases observed against 0.6 expected. For cancer cases that were registered as of unknown origin there were 7 cases observed and 1.4 expected. There was no increased rate ratio for cancer at any site before 20 years after the first asbestos exposure. The smoking habits of all cohort members were recorded and the relative rates for lung cancer were calculated in relation to smoking habits. In common with previous studies the results indicate a multiplicative model for the interaction between asbestos exposure and smoking in regard to lung cancer risk.

A third study worth examining is called, Inhalation and injection studies in rats using dust samples from chrysotile asbestos prepared by a wet dispersion process. By Davis JM, Addison J, Bolton RE, Donaldson K, and Jones AD - Br J Exp Pathol. 1986 Feb;67(1):113-29. Here is an excerpt: Abstract - Long term inhalation studies and intraperitoneal injection studies in rats were undertaken with a series of chrysotile asbestos dusts. Three dust samples were generated from chrysotile modified by the wet dispersion process (WDC) and one was from unmodified chrysotile. Following a 1 year inhalation period, all the chrysotile samples proved extremely fibrogenic and carcinogenic and there were no significant differences between the WDC dusts and normal chrysotile. In all experimental groups approximately 25% of animals developed pulmonary carcinomas and in the oldest rats advanced interstitial fibrosis occupied on average 10% of all lung tissue. In the injection studies all the dust samples produced mesotheliomas in over 90% of animals. Very little chrysotile remained in the lungs of the animals that survived longest following dust inhalation and what there was was present as individual chrysotile fibrils. It is suggested that chrysotile is potentially the most harmful variety of asbestos as shown in these and other animal studies but that it is removed from lung tissue quite rapidly. In the long lived human species this may mean that except where exposure levels are very high and of long duration, chrysotile should be less hazardous than other asbestos types.

We all owe a debt of gratitude to these fine researchers for their hard work and dedication. If you found any of these excerpts interesting, please read the studies in their entirety.

Gas Disorders

Just because something is natural doesn't mean it's desirable. Take the almost unmentionable problem of digestive gas. Please. Anyone who has ever expelled gas in a public setting knows that excuses such as "I couldn't help it" and "everyone does it" are of little comfort to either the perpetrator or the victims who must endure the aftermath.

But it is no longer necessary to live with this situation, thanks to a handful of entrepreneurs who offer practical solutions. Several products offer fast, reliable relief for those who suffer from digestive disorders. And those products are even available online, where you can shop in private without facing store clerks and cashiers.

What causes the problem of excess gas, commonly known as a fart? Many digestive disorders can cause this condition, including Irritable Bowel Syndrome, lactose intolerance, diabetes, gastric bypass surgery, spastic colon, Crohn's disease, colitis, and other gastrointestinal diseases.

However, the source of flatulence need not even be that serious. Many ordinary foods will cause gas-related embarrassment. The usual suspects include dairy, baked beans, dried beans and peas, fruits, bran cereals and breads, wheat products, fatty meats, fried foods, broccoli, brussel sprouts, cabbage, cauliflower, and onions, among others.

Anti-flatulence products

To eliminate the gas at its source, many people use CharcoCaps to absorb the toxins. One bottle contains 100 capsules of activated charcoal. The manufacturer recommends taking two capsules with water after meals, and not to take more than 16 per day.

CharcoCaps capsules attract and condense gas molecules into the tiny pores on the surface of the charcoal, a process called adsorbing. You can shop in private for CharcoCaps by visiting stores online that carry the product.

Those who prefer not to ingest anything for their gastrointestinal distress might consider a Flat-D filter. Each pad is lightweight and only one-sixteenth of an inch thick. At 7 inches long and 5 inches wide, the pad fits easily into underwear. It contains activated charcoal that filters and deodorizes flatulence.

Each Flat-D filter pad is reusable and can last for several weeks. Each package contains 10 pieces of double-sided tape to attach the pad to the inside of clothing. To shop in private for a Flat-D filter pad, go to an online store.

Another product that can be used in clothing is called Subtle Butt. One package contains 5 Saving Graces pads that stick discretely to underwear or pants. The pad is made of two layers: soft fabric with an antimicrobial treatment, and activated charcoal with a vast surface area to neutralize odor. Each pad is only 1/32 of an inch thick.

To shop in private for these embarrassing products, go online to look for web stores that offer many ways of coping with everyday problems that people don't want to discuss with strangers.

Raw Juice Diet

A juice fast is a kind of detox diet. The juice fast requires a the short-term consumption of raw fruit and vegetable juice and water. Advocates of juice fasting make use of juice since it is regarded as an exceptional source of supplements and minerals.

Juice Fasting is recognized as an intensive type of detoxification mainly because no solid food is taken. More mild detox methods, like the detox diet consist of solid food.
Nursing and pregnant women as well as children should not try any Juice Fasting Plan.

Individuals with diabetic issues, eating diseases, renal system ailment, liver illness, poor nutrition, addictive problems, anemia, affected immune system, nutritional deficiency,infection, low blood pressure level, colitis, terminal illness,cancer, epilepsy, along with other serious health problems should never consider having a juice fast or ought to do so only if under tight healthcare guidance.

People ought not consider using a juice fast before or after surgery. A juice fasting can lower blood proteins and alter the way prescribed drugs respond in your body. People taking prescribed drugs should check with a health expert knowledgeable in detoxification before attempting a juice fast, and must never stop or decrease their drugs independently.

It is advisable to talk to a knowledgeable doctor before attempting a juice fast. Frequent short-term effects of a juice fast involve severe headaches, weariness, hypoglycemia, bowel irregularity, acne breakouts, elevated body smell, and smelly breath.

Other typical effects of a juice fasting include dizziness, fainting, heart arrhythmia,low blood pressure, hunger,weight loss, diarrhea, vomiting along with renal system disorders. If these negative effects take place, there's a deteriorating of symptoms, or perhaps different symptoms will appear, the fast needs to be ceased and it needs quick visit to a skilled physician.

A different probable complication of a juice fast is looseness of the bowels, which can cause electrolyte loss and dehydration. Should you continue a bit longer, juice fasting can bring about nutrient inadequacies, especially calcium and protein deficiency.

Grapefruit juice, one of the Best Detox Juices, shouldn't be used for a juice fast, specially by individuals having certain medicines. A substance in grapefruit can modify the way specific drugs are absorbed within the body. Recent research shows that pomegranate juice can also have a similar outcome.

Advocates of juice fasting proposed that fasting should only be done during on warmer months of the year. Springtime is assumed to be the optimum time for juice fasting.

Organic vegetables and fruits are the Best Juice Cleanse suggested. If organic products is not available, experts suggests peeling the skin of the fruit or cleaning vegetables with a non-toxic cleaner, normally offered at your nearest grocery stores.

Different versions on the strict Juice Fasting consist of eating a single meal a day besides the juice. Selected fruit and veggies and their parts shouldn't be juiced, just like the pits of peaches, cherries, apricots along with other fruits like apple seeds, carrot and rhubarb tops, citrus peels, hard skins and avocados and bananas.

Meal Plan Diets

Though there are countless eating plans available to help people lose weight, for some people, meal replacement diets are simplest. Having every meal mapped out with a meal replacement product is a good strategy for a person who has a busy schedule and no time for careful meal planning and preparation. Products designed to replace meals, such as meal replacement bars, simplify weight loss meal planning because they provide energy in the form of calories, along with nutrients the body needs. And even for people who are not trying to lose weight, having a pre-packaged snack or meal replacement on hand during a busy workday makes unhealthy vending machine and snack cart fare much less of a temptation.

The Role of Snacks in Weight Loss Programs

Some people have little trouble cutting out between-meal snacks, but others find it difficult to make it from one meal to the next without a snack. Believe it or not, snacks have a place in many weight loss plans. If you are trying to lose weight and force yourself to resist between-meal snacks, you risk becoming so hungry by the next mealtime that you overeat. In those cases, between meal snacks can be helpful in curbing hunger enough that overeating at meals is less of a problem. If you want to incorporate snacks into your weight loss plan, high protein snacks are great choices because they help you feel full, do not result in a rapid spike and drop in blood sugar, and do not result in the sleepiness that often follows high-carbohydrate snacks.

Varied Snacks are Healthiest

If your weight loss program includes daily snacks, your best bet is to go for variety. Fresh fruit makes a terrific snack, and many fresh fruits are available all year. Snacks with some protein, like low fat yogurt or cheese, are good choices. Particularly with pre-packaged meal replacement programs, a variety of healthy snacking options makes it more likely you'll get the nutrition you need without the empty calories you don't need. Include high protein snacks and fruit into your snack choices and you'll have the perfect pick-me-up when you know it will be a long time till your next meal.

Supplementing Meal Replacement Plans

Whether they consist of pre-packaged meals for the microwave or meal replacement bars, this type of weight loss program can get boring over time. This is another great reason to have nutritious, low-calorie snacks on hand. Good snack choices to go with meal replacement plans include:

Grapes
Low fat yogurt
Low fat cheese
Apples
Cherries
Carrot sticks
Celery sticks

People on meal replacement weight loss plans eventually must transition back to preparing their own meals. If this is you, you'll have a much easier time making that transition if you learn to have a variety of healthy, low-calorie foods on hand that require little or no preparation. In addition to the produce section of your grocery store, many online stores offer healthy meal and snack options that you may not be able to find locally. Variety keeps your weight loss plan from becoming a chore and is healthier for you, whether you still have weight to lose or have reached your goal weight.

Urine Infection Medication

Is passing out urine suddenly turning out to be a tough task for you? Or you may be feeling a severe pain accompanied with burning sensation while urination. All these and any other urinal disorder can be a warning sign for you that you might be affected by cystitis or urine infection. Don't worry; D-mannose is there to help you out to get rid of it in every possible way.

To be more certain whether you are already trapped by this malicious disease, check out some more common symptoms.

Recurrent urge for urination

Lack of ability to hold the urge to urinate

Despite repeated urge, inability to empty the bladder totally

Urine with foul smell

Hazy and red colored urine

In severe cases of cystitis fever can also be one of the symptoms.

The first thing to do after the detection of this disease is to ensure early treatments without delaying. Any negligence of treatment from the part of the patients can help this urine infection to spread further and attack the upper urinary tract or even the kidneys. This can be fatal. So don t ignore its treatment. Just go for D-mannose without any second thought.

Generally, bacterial infection is the main cause of cystitis. The bacteria e-coli are mostly accountable for this. The digestive system of human beings provides the primary shelter to these bacteria. But problems appear when these germs somehow enter into the urinary tracts and cause infection. Sexual interaction is known to be one of the major reasons for such flowing of germs. Moreover, the short structure of urethra keeps women at a higher risk of urine infection as bugs can flow into their urinary tract very easily.

Most of the doctors usually prescribe antibiotics to let the patients get rid of cystitis. Antibiotics can of course kill the germs and give the patients relief from pain. But this solution does not last long. One of the reasons for this lies in the fact that bacteria e-coli cling to the bladder wall and antibiotics cannot throw them out of human body permanently. In addition to that, these bacteria can become immune to antibiotics due to regular habit of consumption. As a result, these prescribed drugs make no impact on the patients after a few days. Thus, it is hardly impossible to cure this disease permanently with the use of antibiotics. Here comes the effective role of D-mannose. It attracts the bacteria towards its molecules and kills them, and after that flushes away from the body in the next urine.
