A 44-year-old member asked:

which natural remedies can i take for anovulation?

There are several...: Some natural therapies may work, depending on why someone is not ovulating. For example, if it's due to pcos, then weight loss may help (if overweight). Acupuncture has helped some of my patients.. If it's anovulation due to anorexia, being too thin, or exercising too much, then weight gain may help (along with decreasing exercise). I hope this helps!

A 22-year-old member asked:

Do natural remedies for scabies really work?

2 doctor answers5 doctors weighed in
Dr. Robert Kwok
Pediatrics 33 years experience
No, not really: There aren't any herbs or teas that get rid of scabies. Sulfur creams and lotions have been known to get rid of scabies, but covering oneself with smelly sulfur cream is not exactly natural (more like 19th century medicine). The easiest way to get rid of scabies is to get prescription modern medicine from the doctor.

Are there natural remedies for anemia?

2 doctor answers4 doctors weighed in
Dr. Gary Birnbaum
Internal Medicine 44 years experience
Depends: Before treating anemia, one must determine the cause of the anemia. A most common cause is low iron. Low iron can result from blood loss (perhaps hidden in stool) but may also be due to poor absorption of iron and this may have many causes. Anemia may be associated with chronic diseases of the kidney and joints as well as many cancers. See your doctor to determine the cause prior to treating.

Healthy Habits: Constipation should be treated intially by examining your daily habits. Most individuals will benefit from 1. Eating regular meals at the same time each day. 2. Drinking 8-10 glasses of water per day 3. Adding fiber (1 teaspoon or 3 pills) with each meal 4. Gentle daily exercise. 5. Limit alcohol, and caffeine. If symptoms persist after 2 weeks of this routine see your doctor.

berries pack the most impact in terms of fiber from food. Lettuce/ salad is somewhat overrated. In older people, increased calories may be needed. colonic massage, or massaging your own belly serially along the route of the large colon (an upside down "U") can help.
