Should I buy fruits high in water from places with a lot of pollution?

Your choice?: If i had a choice, i'd want it from an area that was pollution free. However, foods are checked regularly by the usda. If unsafe, they would not be able to sell it. More risks from pesticides if used! ...Read more

Eating a lot of fruit and drinking a lot of water daily (being healthy!) makes me really bloated, is this normal?

Eating a lot of fruit and drinking a lot of water daily (being healthy!) makes me really bloated, is this normal?

"What's normal?": Fiber is a good thing, but too much of a good thing can become an annoyance. If you eat too much fiber, you will definitely become more bloated and uncomfortable. As long as you do not have water restriction because of heart, kidney or liver disease, drinking a lot of water is also a good thing. ...Read more

Many possibilities: While dietary fiber and fluids help prevent constipation there are many reasons one might have constipation anyways, such as hypothyroidism and imbalances of intestinal flora. I advise evaluation by a gastroenterologist and/or an integrative doctor who practices Functional Medicine. Acupuncture and herbs like Triphala may help but the cause should be evaluated.

How to cure acne? Is changing the way you eat like trying to eat lots of fruits and vegetables and water a good idea?

How to cure acne? Is changing the way you eat like trying to eat lots of fruits and vegetables and water a good idea?

Not curable, but...: Acne is a cruel disease and this is compounded by telling victims it's from "bad diet" or other lifestyle issues. The link to dairy is a minor factor; others even less so. If 5% topical benzoyl peroxide 2x/day hasn't cleared you in two weeks, get with your personal physician for prescription-strength meds. Fruits ; veggies are helpful for other reasons. ...Read more

Is it okay to drink brisk tea which is 80 calories. I drink about 2 bottles of water a day. I don't eat a lot of fruit to lose all this weight?

Is it okay to drink brisk tea which is 80 calories. I drink about 2 bottles of water a day. I don't eat a lot of fruit to lose all this weight?

80 calories per ?: You say 80 calories but in how much - ? 8 ounces? If so, then every ounce you drink is adding 10 calories to your daily intake that provides NO nutrition for you. If you drink 16 ounces a day, you could have had a healthy apple instead and would have gotten nutrients and fiber from it! 2 bottles of water a day (24 ounces?) not enough - you need about 60-80 ounces a day! ...Read more

Check up time: Having increased thirst and increased urination could be related to hormonal issues, kidney issues, diabetes to name a few. Only a complete history, exam with testing will give you the diagnosis. I would suggest seeing your doctor for more answers. Good luck. ...Read more
