Is my vegetable intake okay? I eat mostly green veggies(broccoli, mixed greens, green pepper, green beans, etc.). My fruit intake is quite colorful.

Sounds good to me: I recommend people eat fruits & vegetables of all colors as the colors are made by different beneficial micronutrients. It's great that you're eating the veggies you do & that you're getting colorful fruits, so you're doing fine, but consider adding in some red/orange/yellow peppers, onions, carrots, tomatoes & purple cabbage. You might also consider seeing a good homeopath for your thought issues. ...Read more

Is 1 avacodo, handful almonds, sunflower seeds, walnuts, spinach leaves, tomatoe and onion a healthy lunch?

Surprisingly fatty.: Sounds good on the surface, but would be rather caloric because of the amounts of healthy fats in the avocado and nuts and seeds. Would cut back on those ingredients, perhaps choosing one per day and switching them up. ...Read more

My toddler ate curried rice with green onions & stir fried vegetables with ginger.His balls became red after poop & painful on touch.What should I do?

My toddler ate curried rice with green onions & stir fried vegetables with ginger.His balls became red after poop & painful on touch.What should I do?

Possible irritation: Poop can often be very irritating to the skin. If the redness is limited to his scrotum following his poop, that is probably the cause. I would wash him with mild soap and water and use a moisture barrier such as vaseline or desitin (zinc oxide diaper cream) on the red areas. If the irritation persists, plan on seeing his pediatrician in the morning. ...Read more

I mixed smoothie with apples, grapes, berries, raspberries, romaine spinach, almonds, and flax seeds. Will this help my skin? & do I drink it 2 a day?

Maybe (not) . . .: I'm not aware of any randomized double blind placebo controlled trials demonstrating any benefit from a smoothie as described above in an adequate sized population of otherwise similar men & women. Nor am I aware of any dosing recommendations. However, I'm sure it's better than eating junk food! ...Read more

One thing for sure, you're on the right track in terms of WHAT you eat, although you didn't specify what KINDS of meat you eat or if you ever might eat some vegetable sources of protein.I think that just might cover it. ...Read more

Eat 5 banana, 1orange , 1 apple. 2cup green tea and 2 cup of nescafe(coffee). Is it healthy?

No: Where is your protein? This is mostly an all sugar albeit natural sugar diet. You need a more balanced diet with protien and whole grains. This is not a healthy breakfast or diet. And tea AND coffee? I'd stick with just the green tea myself. ...Read more
