Is prune juice safe for everyone to use for constipation? How much should I drink to help with constipation?
Think it over-: There are many premade enema kits that are safe and effective. Perhaps you should try these if you are constipated. Miralax, (polyethylene glycol) natural fiber like prunes or oatmeal or fiber capsules may all keep you regular. Anything smaller than the size of your stool may be used to deliver an enema safely. Water may be used, HOWEVER there is probably NOT other entirely safe ingredient (soap/coffee/molasses). ...Read more
Can I use manuka honey to treat my chronic sinusitis? What is the recipe for the rinse? Thank you.
Yes: You can use manuka honey only if you have had surgery. Otherwise, the irrigation will not reach the sinus cavities... It will just run through the nose. The same for any nasal rinse. If you have had surgery, the sinus cavities are open to the nasal cavity and the rinse can get into the sinuses. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I have asthma and copd, I use a nebulizer for treatment along with the albuterol sulfate solution. Is there a better solution to use to help me?
Proper treatment: In my opinion, contrary to others, these conditions should always be treated with inhaled steroid first and then add. This prevents inflammation and twitchy airways. In COPD there is bowing of midsize airways due to tissue destruction. This is helped with anticholinergics (thiotropium or ipratropium) this allows the rescue albuterol to get into the distal airways for rescue, more mainstay in asthm. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Azole cream better: Gentian violet is an old fashioned, messy, and not very effective treatment for vaginal yeast (thrush) infections. If not professionally diagnosed, see a doctor. If you've had yeast before and symptoms are typical, try an over-the-counter yeast cream; look for active ingredient ending in "azole" (miconazole, teraconazole, etc). Any of these will be more effective and faster than gentian violet. ...Read more
How many times in a year should i use nasal deongestant spray safely? Why does it give temporory relief only?
Everything changes: and everything returns. If the underlying condition remains (allergy) but the medication leaves, then the relief is temporary. Giving stress hormones causes the area to get used to HIGH amounts, and NOT respond to normal levels (tolerance, addiction) and have even worse congestion when the spray isn't there. This is most likely with use close together. It's times in a week not year. ...Read more

Banana, garlic, lemons(calamansi), tomatoes, and honey are found to cure hypertension or help lower risk. If used as a mixed juice, can this still cure?
Hypertension: "help lower risk" is very different from "cure hypertension." some juices may be healthy when they contain antioxidants, like garlic. You really need to keep a close watch on your blood pressure, because even without symptoms it can still be high and affecting your organs (like blood vessels, heart, brain, and kidneys, etc). Please work with your doctor, and don't rely on juices alone. ...Read more

No: Pregnant women miscarry with or without drinking pineapple juice. Miscarriages happen as a natural part of the human life cycle, unrelated to fruit juice. That being said, fruit juice is an unnecessary food item... a little bit is ok, any more would just be extra sugar, and we know sugar is unhealthy. One can just eat fruit in moderation, instead of drinking juice. ...Read more

Is pineapple juice safe with Barrett's. Although it is acidic it is supposed to become alkaline in the stomach.It helps me with regular Bowel movement?
You're fine: If it doesn't make you uncomfortable. I suspect you're reading too much folklore about "acid" and "alkaline" foods. There's very little science here. Pineapple actually contains a few proteases that may enhance digestion; if you find it helpful, I'm glad. Often just a few extra glasses of water daily can keep things regular as well. Best wishes. ...Read more
