I take flp product containing stabilized aloevera gel, fructose, natural cranberry and apple juice, sorbitol, ascorbic and citric acids. What are uses?
Many uses: I'm curious why you're taking a product you don't know the use for. The active ingredient is aloe vera gel- everything else is for flavor or preservatives. Aloe vera has many proven health benefits- it helps reduce inflammation, lowers blood sugar & cholesterol, soothes inflamed GI tracts, etc. You might look for aloe with less added sugars.

Is a natural toothpaste made of baking soda, sea salt and organic coconut oil effective in preventing tooth problems during pregnancy. ?
Dental Hygiene: Excellent dental hygiene including regular brushing 2 or 3 times per day, flossing ideally everyday and regular checkups will help keep you healthy during pregnancy.

I would recommend at least 2 cleanings during the pregnancy, at the beginning and sometime toward the 5th or 6th month. ...Read more

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
Wrong approach: Uric acid levels have little to do with diet, though a few foods, notably organ meats, contain so much uric acid that they can drive the values up and alcohol can raise uric acid. The internet is full of total junk, and whoever told you that coconut lowers uric acid simply made it up in order to appear learned and perhaps make crooked money. Your physician is your best guide. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

How safe is the master cleanse? This cleanse includes 10 days of drinking fresh lemonade sweetened with maple syrup and cayenne, and no food.
It's relative.: If you are a healthy 26 year old male without diabetes or any major chronic illness, the master cleanse is safe, but quite extreme. It is basically a ten-day fast, which is not good for your metabolism. I would suggest you find shorter "cleanse" options at your local health food store, that contain vitamins and nutrients to keep your body running, and in balance. ...Read more
