Hello, are there any foods that will clean blood veins?

Hello, are there any foods that will clean blood veins?

No.: Cholesterol and calcification accumulate in vessels as we age. A healthy diet seems to prevent some of this plaque, but there are no specific foods that offer a short term fix. Need to have a long term lifestyle which includes not smoking, treating any diabetes or hypertension, eating well, maintaining a good weight and exercising regularly. ...Read more

Is white rice really that bad for you? I've been eating white rice for years. With clean blood tests. Since I've stopped I've noticed more issues.

White rice is fine: You're a grown man now and you need to be discerning. There are people out there who will tell you that everything artificial -- even removing the hulls from rice -- is 'bad for you.' Almost all of this is simply made up to frighten you. Don't waste your time on these people. Enjoy your rice as part of a sensible, balanced diet. ...Read more

From 134 lbs to 125 in less then 2 months. Diagnosed with sever anxiety. On meds. Clean blood tests. Lost weight just due to stress? Thank u!

From 134 lbs to 125 in less then 2 months. Diagnosed with sever anxiety. On meds. Clean blood tests. Lost weight just due to stress? Thank u!

Probably: Good for you that you sought help for your severe anxiety. A 9-pound weight loss could easily be explained by stress and anxiety. If the anti-anxiety medications do not stop the weight loss, then perhaps you should get a more comprehensive work-up. But, for now, try to keep the anxiety under control with regular exercise, healthy diet, good sleep, tapping (eft), and magnesium supplementation. ...Read more

I have bn coughing for year nothing hurts or blood. X-ray came clean, blood tests and mchc and basophil was slightly high, basophil abs was low 0.8?

Maybe GERD: Could be gastresophageal reflux disease (GERD). Would need a 24 or 48 hour pH study, best if done off anti-acid medication, to find out. May also need upper endoscopy, upper GI contrast X-ray, and even esophageal manometry. I would see a gastroenterologist for a consultation to find out more. Hope this helps! ...Read more

What would cause right side minor swelling, pain, and tenderness in hip lasting for months. Clean blood tests and ultrasound. No pain when walking?

What would cause right side minor swelling, pain, and tenderness in hip lasting for months. Clean blood tests and ultrasound. No pain when walking?

Further tests: I can't find any reports of side effects from either medicine that might cause this. You should obtain a referral to a physiatrist (if you have not already done so). An MRI may be more revealing. Sometimes, low grade, but persistent, problems require repeat studies before the answers become apparent. ...Read more

R- side neck pain, decreased appetite, weightloss, drenching night sweats, on/off thyroid swelling dry cough. Clean blood, x-ray, & u/s. Not lymphoma?

R- side neck pain, decreased appetite, weightloss, drenching night sweats, on/off thyroid swelling dry cough. Clean blood, x-ray, & u/s. Not lymphoma?

Many possibilities.: Lymphoma usually isn't painful, but the other symptoms could fit. However, there are a number of other possibilities. The thyroid swelling is suspicious for thyroiditis. If that is ruled out, ct scan of neck, chest, abdomen and pelvis may be helpful, or possibly a pet/ct. Various infections, and autoimmune diseases can cause similar symptoms to malignancies. ...Read more

Slight tingle in left hand (pink&ring)tingles in left foot too/ clean blood work and cat scan! Super nervous. I have been getting allergy/sinus headach?

Calm down: Don't let your nerves get the best of you. What body part got the cat scan and why?
I would see an orthopedist since there is hand and foot involvement and let them conclude if you have isolated nerve compressions i.E carpal and tarsal tunner syndrome or some radiculpathy more proximally i.E the back, or some systemic disorder. I do not think the sinus headache is related. Feel better. ...Read more

Is it possible, maybe in the future. To make a working kidney of graphene, to clean the blood like a transplanted kidney...

Future is unknown: Your specific question about graphene is not one of current, heavy research but we never know about the future. However, we do have working artificial kidneys now - this is dialysis. Current technology uses artificial membranes to filter the blood, leaving the good stuff in and filtering out the bad stuff. But a transplanted kidney does this much better without hooking up to a machine. ...Read more

I'm majorly confused what can I get from cleaning dried blood? What STDs Bc I want to get tested

Hepatitis B: If you have NOT been vaccinated for Hepatitis B, it is possible to get a hep B infection from dried blood since it is a fairly strong virus and can live outside the body for many hours. You can't get HIV, Herpes, or other STDs from dried blood. That is why all health care workers and first responders are usually required to get Hep B vaccinations before they start work. ...Read more

I used my nail cutter n cut a bit of my 3 month old's thumbnail skin while cutting his nails. I cleaned the blood n bandaid. Anything 2 worry r 2 do?

Monitor: I would monitor the site for redness, swelling or drainage. Most will heal well and this is not an unusual injury. Try to avoid the clippers in the future. You can use a small square of fine sandpaper to buff off the end of the nails as they grow. It flexes with the change in contour and will never cut. I don't use emery boards as they are too stiff and take off too much skin. ...Read more

Stye care: These are very common and care be treated conservatively 90% of the time. A warm compress and los scrubs open up the oil glass which are blocked. (http://eyewiki. Aao. Org/Stye). Make sure the heat is constant for ~3-5min. Uncooked rice in a stocking moistened and place in the microwave will hold heat for 5min. If this is not curative after 1-2wks then check with an ophthalmologist. ...Read more

So if the person dried blood that I cleaned had a blood Bourne pathogen should I worry that I might have that pathogen or I really shouldn't?

So if the person dried blood that I cleaned had a blood Bourne pathogen should I worry that I might have that pathogen or I really shouldn't?

That's tricky.: Lots of variables: what personal protective gear were you wearing? Gloves, face mask, gown? Is the disease communicable by air droplets as well? Did you have any breaks in your skin? Are you properly immunized? (ex Hep B). What exactly did you do to clean it? The rule is "universal precautions." Presume it is infectious, but know the right biohazard level. Not everything is as labile as Ebola. ...Read more
