Why do I get sick after drinking orange juice? Is this an allergy?

Not necessary: Allergy to oranges (including juice) can present as itching, hives, wheezing, vomiting, diarrhea and less likely anaphylaxis. If symptoms are limited to stomach upset only, it may be only a food intolerance possibly related to the acidity. If a person can tolerate a small amount, but GI symptoms with larger amounts, this supports an intolerance. Either way, if it bothers a person, avoid. ...Read more

Can orange juice help with constipation?

Can orange juice help with constipation?

Not usually.: Orange juice does not usually help the bowels move properly. If it is just an occasional problem, you might want to consider prunes. In the long run, you will want to increase fiber in your diet. A fiber cereal is good for that. I mix mine up in yogurt each morning to give it a better taste. Often I add in fruit also. Good luck. ...Read more

Is orange juice the best way to kick start one's metabolism in the morning after waking up?

Part of a good start: In general, foods are in their healthiest form with a minimum of processing. So an orange provides a better ratio of fiber and vitamins to sugar than orange juice.

If you mix any juice with milk will that make you feel sick? Or is it just orange juice and milk?

If you mix any juice with milk will that make you feel sick? Or is it just orange juice and milk?

Most folks feel fine: Most people can have both juice and milk with their breakfasts, and drink them at the same time without any unusual symptoms. That means mixing juice and milk does not cause a person to become sick (so there may be another reason for one's symptoms, rather than the juice or milk themselves). Is there gastric reflux, lactose intolerance, food allergies, etc...? Also, juice has too much sugar. ...Read more

I've been sick all week so all i drank was orange juice and pedialyte. Is that ok? It's been 5 days. I'm finally better today.

Should be fine: The pedialyte and orange juice should supply the electrolytes and some vitamins you may have been missing since not eating properly. As long as you are feeling better, that is fine. Try to increase your nutrients now and perhaps a multi-vitamin and mineral combination will help. ...Read more
