If I Want To Grow Faster What Should I Do With My Diet Nutrition
Balanced diet: Eating a balanced diet, rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains and low in saturated fats, will promote normal growth. Diet will not accelerate the growth and it is not a good idea to try to do that even though some medications have the potential of accomplishing that. ...Read more

If you have a good nutritional diet does it make your skin look healthier and generally nicer, and what is a good balance of food types to eat?
Good balance: 5-7 servings of fruits and vegetables a day. 3-5 ounces of lean meat, chicken or fish as protein, or eggs, or 1 cup of milk. Complex carbohydrates in the form of whole grains, should make up 1/4 of your plate servings. 1/2 your plate should be fresh fruits and or vegetables. And 1/4 of your plate should be protein. Beans and legumes are also healthy carbohydrates. Avoid too much fat, fried foods. ...Read more

There : There is not a simple answer to this question. A healthy juicing program is not about drinking a lot of juices from the can instead of eating food. There are many different juicing plans with goals that may vary from detoxifying the body naturally, losing weight to assisting with a large variety of health conditions. Juicing is also not a permanent approach when it is used as the sole source of calories. It is time limited (unless you are just using juicing to add healthy, fresh juices to your normal diet). Juicing can have extraordinary health benefits - when done correctly. Before starting any juicing plan, it is important that you discuss it with your doctor, to ensure that it will not be problematic for you. For instance if a diabetic person drank lots of fruit juice, they might have serious problems with their blood sugar. Juicing requires preparation. First, you will need a juicer. There a number of types of juicers, most often you will see juice extractors being used. (they extract the juice from the pulp). A regular blender will not replace a juicer (even though there are some juicers that work through pulverizing). There are many juicing recipes depending on the purpose you are juicing for. Juicing includes fruits and vegetables (emphasis on the word vegetables). It is best to juice with organic produce, as residual pesticides can be harmful to your health. The produce needs to be washed and chopped before you juice it. You need to be knowledgable about produce because not all parts of all plants are safe to eat (i.e., rhubarb leaves/ apricot pits). In order to get the most important benefits from juicing (enzymes); you will need fresh produce, which has not been cooked or frozen. You may need protein supplementation or supplementation with specific vitamins or minerals depending on your juicing plan. I am sure that you have figured out from what I have already said, that a juicing plan for weight loss is more complex than finding out how much juice to drink per day. I recommend that you do not engage in a juice fast or a juice weight loss regiment until it has been planned out. Many of the major medical centers, now have alternative/ complementary medicine clinics with providers who may have expertise in juicing. Juicing can be remarkably beneficial but if this doesn't sound like something you are interested in, you might consider having your doctor refer you to a nutritionist. Good luck. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Valproic & Fertility: There is not great evidence whether it is epilepsy itself or to antiseizure drug treatment that may lead to lower fertility. Valproate has been linked to an increased risk of polycystic ovary disease, a leading cause of infertility in woman. Most important thing is contraception/family planning while on and working with a neurologist for med management when deciding to have children. ...Read more
My mother is in desperate need of a nutritional drink without vitamin k, she is a heart patient and cannot have vitamin K in her diet, thank you.
On coumadin (warfarin)?: Is your mother taking coumadin (warfarin), (warfarin) a blood thinner? If so, her doctors might warn her against vitamin k because it could oppose effects of the coumadin (warfarin). As dr. Levy correctly says, vit k is essential to life. The idea is to be consistent with intake, so that bleeding times will be predictable & Coumadin (warfarin) dose remains stable too. Consulting with a nutritionist may help you find specific products. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Well balanced diet: For most people, your potential height is genetically predetermined and cannot be positively affected by diet. However, malnutrition can certainly affect growth negatively. Most experts (mds, nutritionists, etc) recommend a well balanced diet, with adequate protein, carbs, fats, vitamins and minerals. Fad diets and expensive supplements are not necessary and may be harmful. ...Read more
