Avoid grains!: I agree with dr.Rothman ..... There is a lot of new research explaining that grains are the culprit leading to inflammation, high triglycerides, elevated liver enzymes, etc. Look into dr. Mark hyman, dr. Michael eades or dr.Loren cordain for some great research and information! you can take control of your health if you learn about good nutrition!

Emotion?: Before concluding that diet is the problem, i'd invite you to take a hard look at whether the ways of thinking and acting that enabled you to survive in whatever environment you grew up are perhaps now not working well for you. Anxiety, impotence and hypertension all suggest that life itself is treating you cruelly and perhaps your physician can hlep you find ways to beat it. Please consider.

Probably not.: Contrary to what you read online, side effects from rogaine (minoxidil) are rare. There are many common causes of palpitations. You need to see your family doctor or a cardiologist and find out exactly what is causing them. It could be the rogaine (minoxidil), or just too much coffee - but it could be something more serious. Don't assume it's the rogaine (minoxidil).

Endometriosis : Though you may have more than one condition causing these symptoms, endometriosis is common to all these. A gynecologic emanation and a laparoscopic diagnosis may settle the mystery. The illustration shows common locations for this disease.
