Veggie and fruit diets have health benefits but no proven anti-cancer benefits. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Fiber adds bulk to stool and improves bowel regularity. Fiber can be used as an adjunct to weight loss by filling you up without excess calories, and in so doing restricting fat intake. But too much fiber can make you gassy and increase stool volume. ...Read more

Beans and protein: Beans are valuable sources of protein, especially for people who eat vegetarian diets.

What's your opinion on moringa olfeira? I've heard it's great to boost supply and nutritional value of mothers milk but i also read that women of child-bearing age shouldn't take it?
Not well-studied: It is great for mother to provide breast milk to their infants. There are many health benefits for both involved. However, I do not recommend substances like moringa olfeira because of the lack of data. Does it help, i'm skeptical; could it harm either the baby or mom, not worth the risk. Disclaimer: I am a physician-scientist who likes data. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

You need to follow-up with your surgeon or at least pcp, to get a best answer of a return to work date. Best wishes. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I've had a jelly bean sized verruca on my big toe for 3 years. Home freeze treatment and trying to cut it out have all failed, any recommendations?
Avoid Scarring.: Warts, especially when located on the toes, can be a little more difficult. With limited skin area and very specialized "thick" skin on the bottom, care must be taken. Techniques that cause damaging or scarring of this skin can create more challenging issues in the toe. Using dehydrating chemicals to reduce the wart size as well as kill small satellite warts helps and often is all that's needed. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Anxiety, new obsession is bowel movements. Now I have on & off diarrhea for 2 weeks not watery, just big blob to somewhat normal. Saw green bean once.
Keep it simple: Assuming that you don't have inflammatory or irritable bowel syndrome and are not taking antibiotics, your body can take care of itself if you take care of it. Plenty veggies, adequate fluids, regular exercise and 7-8 hours sleep will put you in good shape. Any way you can focus on achieving those goals rather that on the BMs (that is, on the process rather than the results)? Hope that helps! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
