Help,son 15 months old,opened whole fish oil 1000mg,wheat germ 100 mg per caps,2 caps and ingested,mouth smells fish,don't think mercury free?

About 6 oz of wild salmon will provide about 2000 mg of DHA, and it is thought that infants over 6 months can have up to 3 oz a week, so avoid further fish in your infants diet for the next few weeks to be sure. ...Read more
Ate spaghetti squash (w/olive oil, goat cheese, salt, pepper). Nose swollen inside, sinusdrainage, asthma. Allergic to squash?!? Other food allergies.
Food allergy: If you ate the squash and had an immediate reaction (minutes to 2hrs) that included hives, swelling, shortness of breath, wheeze, throat tightness, vomiting or passing out then I would be concerned for a food allergy reaction.

You hear so much about natural remedies for cleansing and detox; like probiotics, lemon water, honey, diatomaceous earth, essential oils, etc. Do they really work?
No, not that way: Humans, designed or evolved over millions of years, are self-cleaning. That means we should eat what we are designed to eat, and our bodies will clear out unneeded materials without help. No supplements are needed, unless one wants extra fiber to move the bowels better. Proper diet, enough exercise, and a healthy mind should normalize bowels. Diseases may need treatment, but seldom supplements. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
