What will green tea with honey and lemon strepsil do?

Green tea is: A metabolism booster, thus it has a reputation for helping w/weight loss. The benefit is minimal in my estimation, but worth adding to to a health food plan an exercise. Peace and good health. Honey is soothing to the throat and an anti-microbial but it is in the sugar family so it's not a free pass because it is "natural." It's a far better choice than refined sugar. I don't know about Strepsil. ...Read more

I mix wheatgrass, barleygrass, maca powder, spirulina, chlorella, psyllium husk and scai berry with carrot and apple juice every morning, is it good?

It is an interesting combination of ingredients. I presume you did some research before choosing them? If you feel it helps you then there is no reason that i know of not to continue with it. ...Read more

Why does the media say eating "gluten free" can reduce glycemic spikes as gf still allows rice and buckwheat which is high carb?

Why does the media say eating "gluten free" can reduce glycemic spikes as gf still allows rice and buckwheat which is high carb?

The Media is Wrong: Good observation. "glycemic spikes" are due to carbohydrates not gluten. Gluten is found in wheat and many people who go "gluten-free" subsequently reduce their carb intake. Changes in glucose control attributed to lack of gluten are actually due to carb reduction. For people who have celiac disease, going gluten free is important. There is little evidence that it helps others. ...Read more

I don't have any known food allergies, but it occurred to me that I've never had buckwheat before. What would I monitor as a sign of allergy?

I don't have any known food allergies, but it occurred to me that I've never had buckwheat before.  What would I monitor as a sign of allergy?

Not to Worry: Just because you haven't tried buckwheat before doesn't put you at an increased risk for allergy. Rare to develop a food allergy later in life, shellfish/peanut more common. Food allergies are typically immediate, minutes to a half hour after ingestion of concerning food with symptoms ranging anywhere from hives, wheezing, itching, shortness of breath, wheezing, vomiting, or fainting. ...Read more

I had Naion 4 months ago, when I had a MRI for it, they also found a small secular aneurysm.  I started taking turmeric for a gout flare up. A chiropractor recommended that I take a buckwheat supplement for vascular health. Any issues with these 2?

Tumeric may help: You will know quickly if tumeric eases the pain of your gout. There are excellent medications for this however - you should see a rheumatologist for gout. I seriously doubt almost anything that a chiropractor proposes. That goes for any presumed relationship between buckwheat and vascular health. ...Read more
