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

Are there home remedies for delayed sleep phase?

Are there home remedies for delayed sleep phase?

Sleep restriction: Sleep restriction therapy - you figure out how many hours you're actually sleeping, then limit your window of sleep time to that amount. Gradually, as you sleep for that whole time you lengthen it. It is hard because you will be tired for days/week as you implement it.

No: There are not proven non-medical remedies (such as homeopathic products, herbal products, foods, or drinks) that are effective for social anxiety in a child.

Good treatment is behavioral. ...Read more

They are offered with the statement "your doc doesn't know about this" or they are trying to "hide" the benefit. Autism gradually improves over time in most cases with loving supportive care.These programs are a waste of time but do what you wish. ...Read more

Doctors - up to what extent one can stick with home remedies for health related problems?

Depends: This is a complicated question because the answer depends on the problem. You can treat a cold at home but you can't treat a heart attack at home. It depends on the severity of the symptoms and the underlying cause of the problem. Better to err on the side of caution and consult a physician when something that appears serious comes along like an irregular shaped black, bleeding, and itchy mole. ...Read more
