What do you think about the recent studies on AHCC treating HPV? I know that currently HPV is incurable even if it "goes away", but maybe someday?

What do you think about the recent studies on AHCC treating HPV? I know that currently HPV is incurable even if it "goes away", but maybe someday?

Very doubtful: AHCC (active hexose correlated compound, an extract of certain mushrooms) is being studied for its effect in cancer, various viral infections, and other conditions. It's in very early research. From what I know, I would not expect it to be any better than other currently available treatments for HPV, and I doubt it will offer permanent cure. If effective at all, it's years away. ...Read more

From oral sex My Dr. said that i don't have herpes symptoms,i do not need testing. But some webites say that it can be asyptomatic. Should i worry?

Herpes: You are thirty years old. I just say that to be frank with you. It is time you learned about STDs. Every single adult should be tested for their herpes status. This testing is the blood testing. 75% of Americans have HSV one or the 'oral' herpes. 90% of them do not get recurrent sores, but are still contagious. Everyone must know their herpes status. Everyone. No excuses. ...Read more

If you know you have oral cancer early it always cure?

If you know you have oral cancer early it always cure?

Not always: Not always but if you catch it early you definitely have a good chance of a better outcome. If you suspect you or someone you know has oral cancer, please see a dentist as soon as possible. The dentist can biopsy the area and get it analyzed at a lab, or refer you to an oral surgeon to have this done. Stop any bad habits such as smoking, dipping and drinking alcohol in excess. ...Read more

Someone posted " is hypothyroidism curable" a dr stated that it is if you continue taking meds . So if a cure meant taking meds for life that can't me curable just regulated. Doesn't cure mean heal?

Someone posted " is hypothyroidism curable" a dr stated that it is if you  continue taking meds . So if  a cure meant taking meds for life that can't me curable just regulated. Doesn't cure mean heal?

Maybe: It really depends on the reason why one is hypothyroid. If it is due to environmental toxicicity, such as heavy metals or endocrine disrupters, avoiding exposure and decreasing toxic load may help and your thyroid may recover in time. But it is not easy, and you need a skilled doctor to help you. ...Read more

I have prostatitis (bacterial). I know that if a person doesn't have symptoms it means infection is cleared, but is there any other way to check it?

I have prostatitis (bacterial). I know that if a person doesn't have symptoms it means infection is cleared, but is there any other way to check it?

There are: But you should know that there is great truth to what you mentions as if you clinically no longer have symptoms and have completed your antibiotics you are likely fine, but often doctors will recheck at least a urine culture to make sure no further bacteria grows or sometimes both a urine culture and urinalysis to make sure no inflammatory cells remain in your urine too. ...Read more

What do you suggest if I have cataracts.Is there any successful treatment that doesn't involve surgery?

What do you suggest if I have cataracts.Is there any successful treatment that doesn't involve surgery?

Cataract Prevention: N-acetylcarnosine (NAC) in small studies showed improve vision in cataract patients. However, it has not been studied in double blind, randomized, prospective way & studies were paid for by company who has vested interest. It is not FDA approved. Likely sun protection & eating a diet rich in antioxidants is just as good; so there is still not enough proof. More info at: eyedoc2020@blogspot.com ...Read more
