Which oil is good for body masaj?

Massage Oil: I would advise you that there may not be a right answer to this question. Medically my thoughts would be to choose an oil that is not harsh on your skin and one that you do not react to as like allergies. I would think that most oils used for massage are safe. ...Read more

If too little body fat leads to organ failure, then why do people say to avoid things like oil in our diet?

If too little body fat leads to organ failure, then why do people say to avoid things like oil in our diet?

Separate issues: Excess body fat is MUCH more common than too little. One has to be on an extreme diet (or anorexic) or have malabsorption to get dangerously low body fat. Avoiding oils does not reduce body fat much; eating carbs is the main cause of fat. The reason some say oils should be avoided has to do with the fact that many oils are pro-inflammatory & cause oxidative stress- see http://tinyurl. Com/metmg3w ...Read more

What body types does virgin coconout oil help to lose weight?

Hmmm: Weight loss is driven by a simple principle: eat less calories than you use every day. Coconut oil can only help if you eat less calories than you burn. Body types are irrelevant. There are select people who are morbidly obese who require surgery to decrease daily intake. Most other folks just need to cut down portion size and exercise more. ...Read more

I just recently purchased some sweet almond oil, how can I use this to cleanse my body of toxins?

I just recently purchased some sweet almond oil, how can I use this to cleanse my body of toxins?

Do not need it.: I am not sure what this is supposed to do but- if you feel normal then you probably do not have toxins. People speak of having toxins and using a colon cleanse, or gall bladder cleanse, etc. If you are young and healthy the body rids itself of what it does not need. It takes care of itself. I would recommend against a cleansing. ...Read more

Got few vitiligo patches at one side of body, can I use tan oil and expose it to get it a little bit darker? Had vitilgo since 8-9 y/o never increased

No: If it tans dark from this, it is not vitiligo. As you tan darker, the vitiligo, by contrast, will become more conspicuous. You can use fake tan spray to hide the vitiligo. Are you SURE of the diagnosis? ...Read more

My boy is 10weeks old. Some of family members suggest me to massage his body 3-4times in a week with mustard oil. Is this hygienic or healthy practice?

My boy is 10weeks old. Some of family members suggest me to massage his body 3-4times in a week with mustard oil. Is this hygienic or healthy practice?

Seems healthy but...: This is a traditional ayurvedic practice. I am not an expert on ayurveda but have great respect for it. I am not aware of research on this, so modern science has little to say on this, but it seems safe. However, I would probably only do it twice a week and not use when it is hot out.

Pure coconut oil is it good for body skin?

Pure coconut oil is it good for body skin?

Sort of.: Coconut oil is a very light moisturizer that sinks in quickly, which appeals to a lot of people. It works well for some, but not those with very dry skin, as it does not moisturize deeply enough. It also tends to clog pores. That doesn’t bother some people, but if you have a tendency to get clogged pores (blackheads, etc), coconut oil might exacerbate that problem. ...Read more
