Are vaginitis, itching, or women's candida truly related to diet (or is that a myth)? I take fish oil and a multivitamin, but also eat dark chocolate!

Are vaginitis, itching, or women's candida truly related to diet (or is that a myth)? I take fish oil and a multivitamin, but also eat dark chocolate!

Mostly myth: If you have a food allery, you can develop a rash and / or itching as a result and those symptoms could manifest as vaginal irritaion. Otherwise diet has no relationship to episodes of vaginitis that is more likely related to etioloies such as - infectious, hormonal, diabetes related, contact dermatitis, or foreign body related episodes of vaginitis. ...Read more

Crab: Shellfish are likely to cause dramatic reactions including anaphylaxis, but among the food items mentioned above, eggs, wheat, and dairy (cheese) are some of the most common food allergens even though any food can be a potential allergens.

Toasted pitta bread slightly brown/burnt be4 - no oil would acrylamide be formed? also would baked potato in oven without oil for 1hr? cancer causer?

Toasted pitta bread slightly brown/burnt be4 - no oil would acrylamide be formed?  also would baked potato in oven without oil for 1hr? cancer causer?

Life is not that way: One potato or one piece of bread, burnt or not, does not cause cancer. Life doesn't work that way. As they say, "Don't sweat the small stuff." Avoid unnecessary chemicals and suspected toxins when possible, but live life without so many worries. Here in California, everything causes cancer, as evidenced by the Cancer Warning Signs that are posted in every single building I have set foot in. ...Read more

Asthma symptoms aggravated after eating raw onions. Cooked onions ok. Vinegar and sauerkraut can cause symptoms. Any other foods to avoid? Allergy?

Asthma symptoms aggravated after eating raw onions. Cooked onions ok. Vinegar and sauerkraut can cause symptoms. Any other foods to avoid? Allergy?

Not necessarily: It sounds like these acidic and irritating foods may be just irritating your airways. This doesn't necessarily mean that you're allergic to them, although you should probably still avoid them or pre-treat with your asthma inhaler prior to indulging. See an allergist to be properly tested to ensure this isn't an allergy that is emerging and proceed as they suggest. ...Read more

I sometimes have foamy urine.I'm a vegan, blood sugar is 85. I rarely have processed food but sweets seem to tie in or excess fruit. I'm 56, 5'6" 118?

Proteins over sugars: Sugars occur naturally in fruits and grains at the end of harvest seasons. That's generally before winter. We did not evolve to eat so much carbohydrate and fructose. A little of this stuff goes a long way. Better to avoid it entirely most of the time. Once in a while is not bad, but only when most your diet mostly protein and vegetables [non starch]. ...Read more

Bacteria: in your intestinal tract break down food and produce methane and hydrogen sulfide causing the odor.
