Are 10-15 gr of goji berries per day safe in pregnancy? So far, I've taken this amount every day (i don't eat meat):is my pregnancy (4 month)in danger?

Unknown, prob. Fine: As is often the case, there is little research on this subject. Some people say that goji berries contain betaine (; perhaps other compounds) that can cause miscarriage but if you did not have a miscarriage in the first 3 months it is unlikely now. Others recommend 10 gr/day- see http://www. Thesuperfoods. Net/goji-berry/should-you-take-goji-berries-during-pregnancy

Colon cleansing: Is not necessary. It is a scam and can actually create problems.

Do not waste your money on colon cleansing or risk your health for that matter. ...Read more

I applied tea tree oil on my face and it caused redness &little lumps on my cheeks. Can I use silver ex &aloevera? How much time will it take to heal?

Facial redness: This may not be an allergic reaction but is a primary direct irritant reaction. I would favor applying a cortisone type ointment rather than aloe Vera. If there is deepening or spreading redness, secondary infection may be present and is a serious situation. See a physician promptly in that case. ...Read more

After getting my eyebrows waxed my skin around it had a bad reaction would tea tree oil calm the redness and get rid of the tiny itchy pimples?

After getting my eyebrows waxed my skin around it had a bad reaction would tea tree oil calm the redness and get rid of the tiny itchy pimples?

Tea tree oil may sting: If the area is already irritated, using tea tree oil may sting, burn, or irritate the skin. So it may make the area more red and inflamed. You're better off using something that's much more mild and less stinging. Pure lavender oil (lavandula agustafolia) is more soothing, because it has less camphor in it, but if it's made from (lavandula), it will be just as irritating as tea tree oil. So read your labels. ...Read more

I know pregnant women should avoid salicylic acid; however, I heard that berries are high in salicylic acid. Is it safe to eat berries when pregnant?

Salicylates: An insightful question, that taught me a bit. Yes berries do rate "high" in content for salicylic acid as do a lot of other spicy or tasty foods. Compared to an aspirin your consumption is miniscule, so enjoy most healthy foods as you are eating "for two" now. ...Read more

I eat almost 30 goji berries a day and acne it has mega doses of vitamin a does that mean I will get toxic overdose? How much goji is too much?

I have a better idea: You're taking a proactive approach to your health, but why not choose something that will actually work? Diet's not the key to managing acne. Anyone telling you that goji berries are especially nutritious, or that acne is best treated "naturally", is misleading you. If topical benzoyl peroxide or retinoic acid haven't cleared you in two weeks, your physician can add something that will. ...Read more

I'm currently 9 weeks prgnant. Is coffee/tea okay during pregnncy? & since I'm lactose intolerant, what can I take for my baby? Pls advise.

Decaf and lactofree: You can enjoy your teas and even some coffee, but I would realy stick to decaf as much as possible. As far as being lactose intolerant (and I know from personal experience), there are many lacotse free products out there now. You can buy lactose free milk (tastes exactly like regular milk), and can use that to make things like pudding, etc. Also, yogurt is a good addition for more dairy. ...Read more
