Would pollen (birch) immunotherapy help resolve OAS?  (Apple, hazelnut, peanuts ara h8, etc)

Maybe: Will birch immunotherapy help with oral allergy syndrome?

Does apple cider vinager help dimples in fat?

Does apple cider vinager help dimples in fat?

Evidence: It's hard to say if things like cider vinegar help for cellulite because no one has invested the time and money to study them properly. There might be anecdotal evidence, but no good reproducible studies showing they work. At the very least , rubbing some apple cider vinegar on your legs won't hurt you, and it's not expensive like some other cellulite "cures". So no harm in trying. ...Read more

I've seen prickly pear cactus promoted as a superfood. What's behind the hype?

I've seen prickly pear cactus promoted as a superfood. What's behind the hype?

Prickly pear cactus, also called nopal, is promoted for treating diabetes, high cholesterol, obesity and hangovers: It is also touted for its antiviral and anti-inflammatory properties. Some preliminary evidence shows that prickly pear cactus can decrease blood sugar levels in people with type 2 diabetes. Research also suggests that prickly pear cactus extract may lessen the unpleasant effects of a hangover. However, more research is needed to confirm these benefits. It's too early to call prickly pear cactus a superfood, but it can be part of a healthy diet. Indeed, prickly pear cactus is popular in many areas of the world, particularly Latin America, because it's high in fiber, antioxidants and carotenoids. The edible parts are the leaves, flowers, stems and fruit. Prickly pear cactus is eaten whole (boiled or grilled). It is also made into juice and jams. If you'd like to try prickly pear cactus, consider easing into it. Side effects for some people include mild diarrhea, nausea, increased stool volume, increased stool frequency and abdominal fullness. ...Read more

Is it normal for 7 month baby to eat 200gr of fresh fruit porridge (banana, apple, medlar, cherry, cherry plum, peach) between meals?

Childhood Obesity: Nope. Not at all. That is 800 calories. You are the parent. You are responsible for the health of your child.
