It's fine: Minerals -- not at all. They can only be destroyed in a nuclear reactor. Vitamins -- maybe a little, notably vitamin C, but you probably get plenty. Causing cancer? That's internet scare hoax stuff. Taking proper care of your food is key to avoid food-borne illness. Best wishes. ...Read more

Can breastfeeding help decrease or alleviate a newborn's symptom severity from withdrawals associated w/ 3rd trimester, high-dose RX Xanax (alprazolam) exposure?

Can breastfeeding help decrease or alleviate a newborn's symptom severity from withdrawals associated w/ 3rd trimester, high-dose RX Xanax (alprazolam) exposure?

Not good idea: While Xanax (alprazolam) does cross into breast milk, the keve l s can be very erratic and thus not a good plan for withdrawl. Otherwise, you are basically asking about keeping your newborn addicted to a controlled substance by passing him the med through your milk to "alleviate withdrawl". You are not alleviating withdrawl, you are keeping them addicted. Don't do it. Do withdrawl supervised in hospital. ...Read more

Can we use L-carnitine or vitamin E or selenium or milk thistle as a treatment for idiopathic chronic liver hepatitis of unknown origin?

Yes, also...: All of those are perfectly safe & reasonable to try, but i would make sure the e is natural with mixed tocopherols, as the evidence suggests that synthetic vit e is toxic! selenium often helps with viral infections, as does vit. C. Consider seeing a homeopath & acupuncturist, since conventional medicine has little to offer in this situation. See a holistic doc: http://www.Abihm.Org/search-doctors. ...Read more

Could an increase in dose of vit d from 1000iu to 4000 iu cause any harm or side effects? Recommendation from homeopath

Could an increase in dose of vit d from 1000iu to 4000 iu cause any harm or side effects? Recommendation from homeopath

None at all: The optimal blood level of vit d is 50-70. Most adults need 5000-8000 iu/day to achieve these levels. While vit d can be toxic, toxicity is virtually unheard of with doses below 40, 000 iu/day. 4000 iu is totally safe with no potential for toxicity. But it is ideal to make sure you are getting adequate vit a ; k as they work in synergy with d. See http://bit.Ly/1dc7vna ; http://bit.Ly/1d6mkhq. ...Read more

HIV 1&2 antibody production can get delayed by factors like immunity, medications, other diseases, treatments etc..Same is applicable to P24 antigens?

Conclusive at 4 wk: Your opening statement is mistaken: HIV antibody development is NOT delayed by any known immune problems, medications, etc. The antibody-only HIV tests always are conclusive by 6-8 weeks after exposure. If somehow antibody were delayed, p24 antigen would appear sooner, not later. The Ag-Ab (4th generation) HIV tests therefore are ALWAYS 100% conclusive any time 4 weeks or more after catching HIV. ...Read more
