Doctor insights on:
For the past few months, I've had small stones in my stool don't look like pics of kidney stones, more like small lemon seeds... Should I be worried?
Wonder about food: It is sure not related to kidneys. Partially digested material? Go over everything you eat, you probably will find a reason for stool stones. ...Read more
Yes: We try to avoid feeding a little kid any product with loose seeds that they might inhale. Those can lead to recurrent pneumonia that is hard to understand/treat. These may require us to look into their airways and retrieve the seed. I don't feed kids any loose seed like products (including popcorn) until they are old enough to tell me they got some down their windpipe. ...Read more
Stop and enjoy them: You're the victim of a mean, stupid internet fraud. And even if you use a freckle remover, even from a dermatologist, you risk disfiguring yourself. Freckles are endearing, they're distinctively you, and a majority of your friends probably like them. Ask them. If you want them less prominent, avoid excess sunlight -- wise in any case. ...Read more
Should not affect the viral illness and may make u feel better!
Acne: I am not familiar with treating acne in this manner. Wash face w gentle cleanser 2x/day & use oil free products. No oily hair or heavy foundations. Exfoliate occasionally. Try not to pop pimples. Avoid touching face (cradling chin in hands). Remove makeup before bed. Shower after strenuous exercise. Consider otc products (salicylic acid or benzoyl peroxide). If > mild acne see dermatology. ...Read more
Phytonutrients: Plant foods contain not only vitamins and minerals but a wide array of nutrients called phytochemicals that have many health benefits.

Not a good idea: Fasting for 2 weeks is not a good idea and is generally considered unsafe from a medical perspective. Clearly, for various reasons it has been done and people have survived it, but it is very unhealthy and I would strongly recommend against doing so no matter what the reason for desiring to do so. ...Read more
For the gullible: This is a mix of tea, lemonade, maple syrup and pepper, with no sold food. You'll lose weight mostly because it's nasty and you'll take in fewer calories. I hope you are not so foolish as to believe it "removes poisons from the body" -- your body actually cleans itself. Long-term users have ended up very sick from it. Short-term it's safe enough if you're reasonably healthy. ...Read more
Sure: I can't recommend you waste your time or effort on a procedure like "cleansing" that has no real health value. The "master cleanse" is maple syrup, lemons, and cheyanne pepper for two weeks. You'll lose weight like the actress did by following any dumb, boring diet. If you're looking for real health and lasting weight loss, get with a fitness club instead. ...Read more
No - but why?: Lemon has minor anti-oxidant activity and is a little astringent. But it will not penetrate the skin and while the scent might make you feel better, it will not enhance your face. However, there is no harm in doing this/. ...Read more
