I'm getting endoscopy and colonoscopy on 18th, do I need to avoid alcohol ? How long before procedure do I need to stop drinking ?

Ask your doctor: You certainly need to avoid it after midnight the night before the procedure, since you will likely have sedation with these tests, but the final arbiter on how long you should be without alcohol before the test is the gastroenterologist who is going to perform the tests. It should be in the instructions you get before the procedure, and if it isn't, you should ask. Good luck. ...Read more

I want to do a detox and was told to eat fruit and i'm wondering is this all I should eat and how long do I do this?

Detox: Why do you want to detox? If it is from a medication or a drug you should talk to your doctor about that. If it is just to 'detox' it is not necessary. Your body is excellent at cleaning itself. To be healthy you need to have 4-5 fruit and vegetable servings a day, exercise for 30 minutes 5 times a week, and not smoke. Most of the detoxing regimens can cause imbalances in your body. ...Read more

Do I need to limit natural carbs like sweet potatoes on a plant based diet??? Or can I eat as much as I want?

Limit simple carbs: A plant-based diet is very healthy but I would limit processed simple carbs like white flour and white rice, as they tend to raise blood sugar. White potatoes and high-glycemic fruits like dates should also be limited but all of these are OK in moderation. Sweet potatoes actually raise blood sugar less than white potatoes!

Bad idea: The effectiveness depends on what "diet pills" you actually took. They have different mechanism of action and work differently depending on the individual person. In general, it is a bad idea to take a medication that was not prescribed specifically for you. Go to your doctor and ask for your own pills. You might have characteristics where one diet pill might be better suited for you than others. ...Read more

I need a diet that limits risk of cancer and stroke (my parents had them) and helps me lose weight at 60.?

See your doctor.: See your doctor to be sure of a diet that lowers risk of cancer and stroke. Stroke is mainly due to a history of hypertension, and atherosclerosis, so a low cholesterol, low salt diet would be best. A diet high in fiber can reduce risk for colon cancer, and fruits and vegetables contain antioxidants. Stop smoking and lower drinking to further reduce risk.
