It depends: Even natural sugars have calories and can lead to weight gain if consumed in excess. However, our bodies process natural sugars better than refined ones. You are better off getting your sugars from natural products like fruits and honey because of the other nutrients they contain. As long as you are not diabetic your body should handle the sugars without difficulty. ...Read more

Add Miralax (polyethylene glycol): Constipation or stool holding is not uncommon at 22 months of age. It is very difficult to make a toddler eat the required amount of fiber/juice daily to overcome hard stools. To treat the stool holding/constipation I recommend 1/2 capful of MiraLAX (polyethylene glycol) daily-an otc stool softener-adjust the dose so your child has 1-3 soft easy thin stools daily. I would continue it for 4-6 months. ...Read more

Keep haveing mild kidney pain like a dull ache had catscan doc said have kidney stones in kidneys bloodwork can't fig out why alway aching doc stumped?
Likely not kidney: In general, a stone in the kidney will not cause pain. Only if the stone leaves the kidney and either travels down to the bladder or worse, if it gets stuck in front of the kidney and obstructs the kidney, would a stone be a cause of pain. A dull ache in the back, especially if related to certain positions, is likely musculoskeletal and you should try motrin/advil, heating pads and rest. ...Read more

Healthy diet & supps: I am not sure what you are asking. The foundation of nutritional support is a healthy diet. No one diet is best for everyone but a diet emphasizing a variety of organic fruits, vegetables, beans, nuts, seeds & possibly organic dairy/eggs/meats in moderation is a good foundation (though it can be argued that a vegetarian or vegan diet might be healthiest for many). See comments for further advice. ...Read more
