Can I take super b complex, magnesium, fish, flax, and borage oil, and wormwood black walnut together?? Thanks
Taking super b complex, magnesium, fish, flax, borage oil and wormwood black walnut may produce loose stools. The Magnesium fish, flax and borage oil have a laxative effect.

Will taking pumpkin seed oil supplements 1000mg for hair loss, negatively effect my thyroid functioning? I have hypothyroidism taking 75mcg synthyroid
Not studied: Hi. No one has studied the effect of pumpkin seed oil (PSO) on thyroid function; just like no one has studied its effect on hair loss!

Good luck! ...Read more

Whenever I eat foods with a lot of oil continuously I get dark spots on my chest, back of the neck and back shoulders and they last for long also when?
Wrong question: The question is why you have dark spots and what can you do about it. The dark spots are in no way related to any food. A dermatologist will help you if you need to understand and treat this. Since "dark spots" can be due to several different causes there is no specific advise in the absence of more information. ...Read more

Hello, I bought Castrol oil I put it all over my skin mainly because I wanted to get longer lashes but I got acne all over my face+neck. What to do?
Good for engines but: Not good for your skin. Castrol is a brand of regular and synthetic motor oil used in cars, such as the one in my driveway. Castor oil is an oil obtained from castor beans. Wikipedia says Castrol got its name for adding castor oil to its motor oil. Anyway, eyelashes won't grow any faster with this kind of stuff. If oil is not washing off of skin easily, massage body cream into it before washing. ...Read more

I have lost 122 lbs so far but my neck is saggy, I heard that olive oil w/vitamin E in it can possibly help a little. Is there any truth to that. Tyvm?
Congratulations: On the weight loss. Skin stretched to that degree does not go back to its tighter shape to any large degree. Stay neat, clean, treat others the way you would like to be treated. This can be the most attractive part of life. Beyond that, surgery can be very helpful. Peace and good health. Vitamin E oil directly on the skin may help if there was scarring but please see your doctor. ...Read more

Cold pack may help: I would use a bit of soap and cool water to wipe off the oil, then use a cold pack (ice in plastic bag and wrapped in thin towel will do also) will help. The peppermint will "burn itself out" in about 1-2 hours (must wipe off the oil). Hope this will help. If not better, call doc for eval. Good luck. ...Read more
