I've got tonsallitus several times is that normsl? Any advise to prevent it?

Tonsillectomy: Recurrent tonsillitis is neither "normal" nor "abnormal"... It's just you. There's really not much you can do to prevent it other than general hygeine to prevent upper respiratory infections (cold) - wash your hands, minimize touching your face. If you want maximal prevention... Then have your tonsils removed. ...Read more

You : You may be having a recurrent infection with boils. Boils usually start out as tender, red areas which become hard and then eventually develop a "head" of white pus. Once this drains, the area usually heals on its own. Most of these are caused by staphylococcus aureas, a common bacteria found on the skin. Occasionally, however, the can be caused by mrsa, the antibiotic resistent kind of staph bacteria. Next time you develop one of these infections, start out by applying warm compresses to the area to help draw the infection out. Then, you should see your doctor so that they can drain it, test for what bacteria is causing it and be able to treat you appropriately - sometimes with antibiotics, sometimes just with drainage. If you ever develop fever, chills, or feel ill with this infection, call your doctor immediately. Don't be embarrassed about seeing your doctor - we see this kind of thing all the time and we're here to help, not judge. You can try and prevent these infections by practicing good hygiene and using anti-bacterial soaps. Your doctor may have other suggestions for prevention. Good luck! ...Read more

Not normal: Are you sure you're not pregnant? If not, then take a pregnancy test. Abnormal bleeding can be from all sorts of things: infections, medications, stress, travel, changes in your weight, uterine polyps, fibroids, to name a few. Any woman over 35 who has extra bleeding (between periods) or cycles shorter than 21 days should see a doctor for an evaluation. ...Read more

I've been an acute pancreatits patient for about 4yrs now. I would like to know if there is any permanent remedy thru Ayurvedic treatment? The problem is so severe that i had internal bleedin 3times.

I've been an acute pancreatits patient for about 4yrs now. I would like to know if there is any permanent remedy thru Ayurvedic treatment? The problem is so severe that i had internal bleedin 3times.

Worth trying: Pancreatitis can be a serious & debilitating condition & western medicine has limited approaches for prevention. Ayurvedic treatment may be quite helpful though may not always offer a permanent cure. Classical homeopathy is another treatment that can help- there are many case reports of homeopathy curing recurrent pancreatitis. It would be reasonable to try both ayurveda & homeopathy. Good luck! ...Read more

Canker sores: The cause of canker sores is unclear. It may be an autoimmune response, especially in the presence of stress and local irritation. Do you have any specific allergies or sensitivities? Try to eliminate these sources- acidic and spicy foods? Sls in some toothpastes? Certain mouthwashes? Food allergies? Speak to your md and dds for some one on one evaluation and advice. ...Read more

See a dermatologist: Without being able to visualize these skin lesions it is impossible to diagnose. Short of allergic responses, the only things that come to mind are cutaneous candidiasis getting worse, or an idiosyncratic reaction to the medication. But see a dermatologist and have them look at these lesions. ...Read more

Hi, I'm Molly. I've been trying to have a baby for about 8 months now, and it just won't happen. My partner is healthy, so what could be the problem?

Perhaps none :): Not everyone gets pregnant on their first few attempts! In fact, most docs don't have any suspicion that there's anything "wrong" unless you've been trying for one year without success. So, your situation may be completely normal. Eat healthy. Take PNV. Don't drink or use drugs. Time your cycles, and set up an appointment with your ob, who can either allay your fears or determine the next steps:) ...Read more
