3 doctors agreed:
Do japanese garlic tablets treat arthritis?

It's possible!: If you ask most allopathic physicians, the answers will be no. I am an allopath too, but, being a japanese and possibly biased, i must say garlic in general with its compound called allicin does have anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, antibiotic, anti-fungal, and antiviral properties. Garlic in my opinion is underrated. It can possibly help with symptoms of arthritis. ...Read more

Can I take pharmaton capsules while taking 200mg sertraline daily?

Can I take pharmaton capsules while taking 200mg sertraline daily?

Consult doctor: It is prudent to consult your doctor who prescribed sertraline. Pharmaton will not do you any good, if you are taking regular mixed diet. You may, if you wish, take regular multivitamins without other supplements. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Drink enough water daily so that your urine is mostly colorless. Practice safe sex. ...Read more

The only one that has been scientifically studied and has actual medical benefits without significant risks is the vitamin d. Calcium can't hurt. The rest are a waste of money and possibly health. Don't get your medical information from friends, tv or internet scams. ...Read more
