Does cocaine help with weight loss?

See below: Please never consider an addictive substance to help you with any problem in your life including weight loss, anxiety, stress, fitting in etc. All of those issues can be dealt with with good support from doctors, counselors etc. Cocaine kills, and with an addiction will rob you of everything. Weight loss is part of a healthy lifestyle, just losing weight by unhealthy ways and you won't feel beter.

See below: I do not want to get preachy so lets consider Cocaine solely as a medicine. It is extremely short acting so any effects will be over within 20~30 mins. Tolerance will develop to its effects. The dosage of what you get will vary by who the "dealer"is. There is a risk of seizures and heart issues if the dose varies too much. The risk is just too much to justify its use for this reason.

How does orthosiphon help in weight loss?

Yes-diuretic effect: It can aid in weight loss due to fluid loss, however, if fluids are not also taken it can cause kidney damage. Understand that any weight lost from taking orthosiphon is water weight, so this is not a permanent weight loss solution - orthosiphon called java tea.

Can ganoderma help in weight loss?

Dr. Vasu Brown
Integrative Medicine 34 years experience
Yes: Ganoderma(reishi mushroom) is known to enhance your rate of metabolism. As your metabolic rate increases, your body uses more energy to digest food more effectively. To deliver this increased need for energy your body uses up more calories and your fat deposits in your body. This, clearly, can result in weight management. Reishi helps detox liver and naturally brings down blood pressure- good rx.

Can endocrinologist help with weight loss?

Yes, but: They can help you rule out endocrine causes, which aren't that common. After that you need a good regimen of education, diet, exercise and support -- plus changes of elements in your lifestyle that have led to weight gain.

Does blueberries helps in weight loss?

Maybe indirectly: Eating a balanced diet rich in fruits and veges including berries while maintaining a daily exercise regimen helps in losing weight. Blue berries by themselves have no weight reduction powers ... Though they are a good source of antioxidants and certain vitamins.
