Are there home remedies and a healthy routine for curing nocturnal emmisions(wet dreams)?

No: If you are a normal, sexually-mature male and do not masturbate or have a partner, you will have wet dreams. One of the cults teaches that these are unhealthy. This is a lie intended to frighten teenagers. I personally know one pastor who left the cult rather than teach this. Being a man is difficult enough without having this frightening and false put into your head. ...Read more

My 87 year old aunt has been diagnosed with breast cancer. She's had it for over a year. However, she doesn't want treatment, are there home remedies for this?

Not really: I would not recommend home therapies. A lot depends on her health. If the tumor is advanced, surgery may be needed to prevent chest involvement or skin ulceration. If the tumor is small and not aggressive it may be possible that an agent like tamoxifen (estrogen receptor blocker) may give some local control without surgery. Consultation with a compassionate breast cancer specialist is in order. ...Read more
