Is it true drinking a combination of lemon juice, ginger juice, garlic juice & apple cider vinegar, mix with honey will reduce cholesterol?
Probably not.: No study has been done to answer this question so I have to answer no. In a patient with known coronary artery disease, there is no substitute for regular follow up with a cardiologist that you know and trust. Setting up a treatment and prevention plan - and following it - is a must to reduce your risk of future problems. ...Read more

Possible miscarriage: It is thought that eating a large amount of bitter melon might cause miscarriage or pre-term labor. Many women do have some in pregnancy without ill effects but it might be wise to avoid.

Poor choice: Occasional constipation responds best to a real laxative such as milk of magnesia (magnesium hydroxide). Frequent constipation should prompt a check for thyroid disease and porphyria; if it's new, a check for colon cancer is of course indicated. If no medical cause is found, get some good advice on diet and drinking enough water. Best wishes. ...Read more
Could be...: A bunch of things. It could be originating from your digestive system - reflux can cause a sour taste. It also could be from an infection which can sometimes lead to a tinny or citrus-like taste.

Orange juice - sugar: Generally with diabetes, one has to be careful of the amount of sweets & sugars one is taking in. Orange juice is very sweet if u think about it --all those oranges squeezed dry into a glass of juice. The only benefit for diabetics in my mind for O.J. is when their blood sugar drops too low -& they need to raise it. A glass of juice will usually bring them up. We use this strategy in the hospital ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
More palatable: Apple cider vinegar seems to have entered the rhetoric of naturopathic medicine and organic enthusiasts. It is a source of calories and a minor adjust to the acid-base balance of the body, but has no independent health effects.

Whoa: If you have an elevated sgpt, you need to discover the cause. I'm going to assume it's not just heavy exercise. You'll get a decent workup for hepatitis b and c, medication effect (repeat off alcohol and all nonessential meds -- ibuprofen's notorious), hemochromatosis, wilson's, and a few others. If still up, your best move is heavy-duty fitness activities rather than hokey "magic food" remedies. ...Read more
Not known to but...: Apple cider vinegar is a widely used folk remedy, but like most folk remedies research on it is limited. As best as i can tell, it is not known to cause constipation (see http://altmedicine.About.Com/od/applecidervinegardiet/a/applecidervineg.Htm ) and on this website 17 of 21 people reported it was a useful home remedy to treat constipation: http://www.Earthclinic.Com/cures/constipation.Html#acv. ...Read more

I mixed zithromax(azithromycin) 200mg/5ml in mixed fruit juice for my 4 yrs old son. The taste became unbearably bitter. Why could it be?

Still effective.: I believe azithro comes in a bubble gum flavored elixir. ...Read more
High vitamin C: Hi! Camu Camu has very high levels of vitamin C. We know that vitamin C is helpful, but 1) there is no evidence that vitamin C from Camu Camu would be any better for us than that from other supplements; 2) the amount of vitamin C in a given amount of Camu Camu is not reported or regulated, so there's going to be a lot of variation in your actual dose. I can't recommend it. ...Read more
Depends...: Dr. Cole raises an important point. If you are using juicing in addition to a regular healthy diet to detox, then it is safe longterm. If you are doing a juice detox fast, then it can be problematic. The liver needs a tremendous amount of energy to work efficiently. Fasting longer than 24 hours can influence the metabolism of the liver. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Diet and exercise: The best approach to weight loss is diet and exercise. The rule of thumb is to consume less calories than you actually need. This will vary depending on your height/weight, build, and activity level. On average, i've seen 1500 calories per day recommended. Any less, and you are doing yourself harm. Exercise about 90 min per day. www.myplate.gov is a great website for info and tracking calories. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
None: The advertizing media would have you believe they can make your child super with a box of juice in their lunch or a superviatmin blend to bypass that pesky vegatable phobia. Garbage.The best nutrition from an orange comes from eating the real thing & the same goes for the rest. I liken juice intake to feeding them soda. The sugar content is similar and just as likely to add fluff to their tummy. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
