Can consuming raw turmeric powder with luke warm water harm pregnancy?

Can consuming raw turmeric powder with luke warm water harm pregnancy?

Possibly: No one does research giving herbs during pregnancy so we don't know for sure. It seems safe to use in cooking but taking medicinal amounts may cause bleeding or stimulate uterine contractions. I advise caution with all herbs in the first trimester. It is probably safest in the final weeks of pregnancy. See http://bit.Ly/16ma7p2 ; http://www.Nlm.Nih.Gov/medlineplus/druginfo/natural/662.Html. ...Read more

Any opinions on a detox bath? Detoxifying your body by laying in a tub with epson salt, ginger, baking soda, and essential oils?

Any opinions on a detox bath? Detoxifying your body by laying in a tub with epson salt, ginger, baking soda, and essential oils?

Son is 2y old,still boiling the drinking water for him(although bottled water),in egypt afraid of water even bottled,is okay? Or water loses sodium?

Boiled is safer: Water that has been boiled is safer, because germs and parasites have been cooked. People get their sodium from salt in food. In modern societies, we already eat too much sodium, and therefore need no additional sodium from our water. Other ways to make water safe include using special water filters and adding a specific tiny amount of bleach to partially treated water. ...Read more

Can you soak a wound in epsom salt water?

Can you soak a wound in epsom salt water?

Simple Care: The real question-what not to do that slows down healing. Avoid alcohol, peroxide, hibiclens, betadine, epsom salts, bleach solutions. Inflammation ( red, hot, swollen, tender) is important to healing so anti-inflammatories (motrin, advil) are bad. Cover the area with a clean dressing changed every other day and protected from trauma. Antibiotics do not help healing unless it is truly infected. ...Read more
