Apple Cider Vinegar And Honey Cough Remedy
I have a bad case of viral conjunctivitis. Have seen an ophthalmologist. Any effective home remedy? Apple cider vinegar, lemon juice, honey, anything?
Eye wash?: The viral infection will run its course. Saline eye drops or eyewash may provide some soothing effect but will not change the course. Don't try any of the stuff in your eyes or they will get even more irritated. ...Read more

Have a plan: Better: have a plan for getting the right number of calories, balanced nutrition, exercise, fluid intake, sleep & accountability.

Lose weight = short term goal & alone never succeeds. Lifestyle is better ...Read more

Aloe, calendula: A burn like this should heal fairly quickly even without treatment, as long as it does not get infected.

Hi doc, wondering if apple cider vinegar & pomegranate concsntrate juice really good/ suitable for gout treatment? Don't want to rely on pills only
Tue. I had sex, wed. I took my bcp 3 hours late, yesterday I used apple cider vinegar as a BV treatment and today I woke up bleeding. What's going on?
Many possibilities: But the most likely are simply breakthrough bleeding or irritation/trauma from your vinegar treatment. I would not normally expect a 3 hour delay with your pill would matter, but it's possible. The vinegar is not a good idea. Using douches is not a good idea. They tend to disrupt your natural defenses and create more problems than they solve. There are specific BV treatments. Get checked. ...Read more
