Avoidance is first : If you are avoiding things that cause your heartburn, and you still have symptoms, then you'll need to try an acid blocker. First try antacids, like Tums and if this doesn't work, try histamine 2 blocker, like zantac (ranitidine). If that doesn't work, you can escalate to prilosec. If this doesn't even work, see your doctor. If the symptoms happen with exertion, see your doctor before doing anything else. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Raw food diet is great, but some raw veggies cause gas and bloating for some. How to improve digestion of raw food? #nqlu i'm trying to eat more raw food but get way too much gas or just don't digest some veggies and seeds. I try the food combining sugges
Unfortunately : Unfortunately there is no way around this problem, the issue here is Cellulose (fiber found in raw vegetables) this is a carbohydrate that is very difficult for the human body to digest. For this reason, if a lot is consumed the result is gas, bloating and nausea. You should also be aware that for this reason many of the valuable nutrients in raw vegetables are actually not being absorbed by the body, which defeats the intended purpose of eating this way. I believe that steaming your vegetables would be better on your digestive system, and would give your body more nutrients. On the other hand, you can try using a digestive aid before consuming raw vegetables. Examples of naturally occurring digestive enzymes include aloe vera and papain. These can be found at your local vitamin and herb retailer. Good luck! ...Read more

Why do some people eat anything at anytime e.g bread, soda, e.t.c and don't seem to gain weight, but others eat same and gain so much weight?
Metabolism... )o:: Metabolism refers to how our bodies break down and use the food we eat, and actually has to do with a bunch of different factors, including physical activity, current body weight and body composition (seems unfair but muscular people metabolize quicker than other people do), and genetic predisposition. Also certain endocrine problems (like thyroid, adrenal, diabetes...) can affect metabolism. ...Read more
I find difficulty in chewing things like large burgers to piled foods with varies consistencies. I do take small bites but i also fear choking. Advic?
Why the Fear?: Unless you have some dental/oral problem, you should not have any problem chewing or swallowing. Nature has set up very effective defenses inside our throat that food is guided towards the right passage as long as we are alert and not under the influence of drugs or alcohol. I would not hesitate and become so cautious as you are...It is not helpful to you. So relax, take big bites and quit worryi. ...Read more

Does child with tonsillitis usually like to eat soft stuff she eats yogurt and pudding a lot wants to eat other food but scared?
Tonsillitis diet: Indeed kids (and adults too for that matter) prefer soft foods when the throat hurts a lot. Push fluids, and concentrate on protein containing foods like the yogurt she is eating, scrambled eggs, soups, etc. If it goes on for more than a few days, then worry, but go with the flow for a couple of days when she's not feeling well. As throat symptoms improve, add in other foods. ...Read more

Nutrition & exercise: Don't go on a diet b/c that's only temporary. Instead, focus on changing your lifestyle.

Then start exercise program. Just a little bit each day. Aim for 30min/d leading to 500kcal/d deficit or 3,500kcal/wk. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Minor mystery: The truth is that in spite of what anybody else may tell you, acne is not a lifestyle-related or diet-related disease. I was surprised by the controlled studies as well, but it's a robust finding by now. I'm working hard in my own life not to speak unkindly of others even when i'm resentful of their good fortune, but to think of the good that I do have. Hoping your own acne rx is successful. ...Read more

13yo who doesn't want to eat. Normal weight. Always refusing to eat most foods apart from sweets and junk.Does eat proper food if she feels like.Prob?
Let go: I am not a child development specialist or a psychologist, but this may be time to let go. When u have a teen, u have less control and they need to make their own mistakes. In studies, kids allowed to eat entirely as they wish eat junk for a week, then switch to healthy choices. Offer a vitamin-mineral supplement, offer reasonable autonomy rather than a chance to rebel & she'll probably wise up. ...Read more
Why do people need to eat healthy foods? Can't people just eat what they want (big macs and candy bars) and take a multivitamin daily?

The nature of the questions on this forum clearly indicate that poor diet is making millions sick. Trouble is that they are being treated for headaches, abdominal pain, diarrhea, constipation, anxiety state, pains and aches, post nasal drip/allergies etc. ...Read more
