Summers Eve Extra Cleansing Medication
Hi doctor. My aunt is 72 y.O with hypertension and arthritis. She's not taking any medication. Can i give her fish oil and vitamin e? Thank you
Ask her & her doctor: Her doctor would want to know about any vitamins or supplements she's taking. Generally fish oil and vitamin e should be fine, as long as she's not on additional medications that can interfere with blood clotting. Make sure the vitamin e is natural, not synthetic. You want d-tocopherol, not dl tocopherol. Also make sure the fish oil comes from a reputable company that checks for heavy metals. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Which medications should I stop taking before my male breast reduction surgery? I am not on any prescribed medications, but I do take vitamin e, gingko biloba, and a drink a lot of herbal teas. Should i stop using these herbal and vitamin supplements befo
It's a waste of $: Ginkgo biloba failed clinical trials, It's NOT effective. Since it's not a drug, the FDA can't stop the quacks who market it from doing so. As for herbal teas: they taste nice but a typical herbal tea brewed in the typical American way is EXTREMELY weak tea; so dilute that the likelihood of any real biochemical effect is essentially none.

Vitamin B/D/E: If you are eating a healthy, well-balanced diet, you probably don't need to take vitamin supplements. Regarding your question, B-12 is water-soluble and therefore if you take excess amount, you will excrete it in the urine. However, fat-soluble vitamins (A,D,E,K) can be toxic if taken in excess. Recommend discussion with your primary care physician before embarking on vitamin supplementation. ...Read more
Vitamins: A good multivitamin is a good idea. It's like an insurance policy for when we don't eat right, don't sleep well, or are especially stressed.

Prenatal vitamins seem to have 30-100 iu of vitamin E but i thought vitamin E wasn't safe in excess mounts during pregnancy. How much is too much?
Currently i'm taking vitamins that i bought in nearby drug store. I have vitamin c, calcium, and vitamin E capsules is there a sequence in taking it?
I take a multivitamin daily + D3 suppl for a total of 1800iu. But is it ok to take extra supplementation of vitamin E and vitamin c? What about zinc?
Yes - depends a bit: Most adults need 5-8000 iu of d3/day to achieve optimal levels of 50-80. Most multivits have 30-60 iu of e but there are benefits to taking 400-800 iu of e a day, but only as natural e with mixed tocopherols- Alpha tocopherol alone may be hazardous.I advise people take 1-2, 000 mg of c 2x/day. Too much zinc can be toxic but doses up to 40 mg/day are safe-but balance with copper in a 10-15:1 ratio. ...Read more

Hmmm....: It's not super bad, but usually is not needed. The outside is the vulva and can be be gently washed during baths and showers. The inside is the vagina. Vaginas are not meant to be washed. That means washing vaginas is not natural, and can mess up the inside, balanced conditions of a vagina. It's nice to have good hygiene, but know that vaginas are "self-cleaning". ...Read more
