Is it ok to f give berries e.G raspberries in fruit porridge to 7 months baby? He doesn't have allergy, but I was told it will cause it in the future.

Is it ok to f give berries e.G raspberries in fruit porridge to 7 months baby? He doesn't have allergy, but I was told it will cause it in the future.

It's fine: It's fine to give any berries after age 6 months. Their guts are mature enough to fully digest these. Just don't coat with honey - remember, no honey before age 1. Finally, as with any new foods, leave a few days in between new offerings to see if any problems with a particular food. Yummy, yummy, look out berries, here's my tummy!

Can food allergies, including to cucumbers or berries, cause itchy rashes on neck, back, legs? (does not look like hives)

Rash: Your rash may or may not be related to food allergies and the foods you mentioned, especially cucumbers, are rarely associated with this type of rash. I think you need to have your rash examined to determine what it is.

What natural oils and herbs should I avoid since I have hht? I suspect doterra vitamines are maken my nose bleeds worse! Or is it juniper berry oil?

What natural oils and herbs should I avoid since I have hht? I suspect doterra vitamines are maken my nose bleeds worse! Or is it juniper berry oil?

Call poison control: The best database on this is with your state's poison control center. They can actually tell you which supplements, herbs, essential oils, may have the potential to increase bleeding. If you're experiencing more nose bleeding now, it's it's best not to take anything until you know for sure what is causing this. Also, you need to call the dottera company back and let them know you are experiencing this. Speak to their clinical director/ceo.

That doesn't happen: Kidneys are not "dirty" nor "in need of cleaning". Supplements, natural or not, don't actually "clean" kidneys. However, there are people who will sell all sorts of stuff to clean various bodily organs. So, buyer beware.
