Is it okay to have black tea & date-palm during spring detoxification?

Go right ahead: I amazed from the questions posted here how many people think they need to be detoxified. If your liver, kidneys and gut are all healthy, your body does a great job cleaning itself. I've looked at a lot of guts over they years and if you've not eaten for a few hours everything except for the distal colon is empty. There ain't no retained waste to flush out. Sorry. ...Read more

Medication?: An allergic reaction to a medication will often be the cause of itching of the palms and/or soles.

If the symptom continues it might be time to see an allergist. ...Read more

Unlikely: Ethanol is a sugar. Humans do not demonstrate allergies to sugers, but rather, to proteins. Alcohol is a vasodilator and this could be what is causing your symptoms. Regardless, although it seems fun, try and reduce the binge drinking because it is taking a toll on your health. ...Read more

I was wondering if i know i'm going to eat something I am slightly allergic to, should I eat allergy medicine before hand?

People with food allergies should have an epinephrine auto injector in the event of reactions especially if it is hard to avoid the food. An allergist can evaluate your allergy and make appropriate treatment plans. ...Read more
