Will drinking a glass of turmeric milk every night help in getting full body fair complexion like Britishers?

No, but...: No, drinking various flavorings of milk doesn't alter one's complexion. However, milk is part of a healthy diet. Dairy has lots of calcium and vitamin D. So, if one already eats enough animal fats, buy the nonfat milk. Also, if one drinks sugary drinks, and then switches over to nonfat milk (not chocolate nor strawberry-flavored milk), her generally nutrition improves and may get healthier skin. ...Read more

Are there natural sources of Carbonic Anhydrase Inhibitors? I've read pomegranate, milk thistle and turmeric are? True?

Verify your sources: Sadly, despite a huge level of interest in the medicinal properties of foods, or maybe because of it, there is an enormous amount of false, half true, or exaggerated information on the internet. In regards to CAI in Pomegranate, I found a review article in an Iranian pharmacy journal that cited 2 chemistry review articles, neither of which makes any mention of Pomegranate whatsoever. ...Read more

Can you tell me if I could use orange peel, neem, turmeric and milk face pack for acne scars?

Can you tell me if I could use orange peel, neem, turmeric and milk face pack for acne scars?

It won't work: No "pop" remedy will help. I'm sorry you ended up with acne scars in the first place. It means your disease was neglected -- all acne is manageable nowadays using scientific rx. If it was neglected because someone "believed in natural healing", I hope this helps you see through the sham. A dermatologist or plastic surgeon can use microsurgery, laser or filler to make the scars less visible. ...Read more

I have Pseudotumor Cerebri. I've read Pomegranate, milk thistle, turmeric, capsaicin all hold Carbonic Anhydrase Inhibitors naturally. Is this true?

Use with care: I can confirm that pomegranate and turmeric contain some carbonic anhydrase inhibitor activity. However, these do not have enough of this to be clinically useful. It is much more straightforward to take a small dose of diamox (acetazolamide) instead. Although it does not work for everyone with PTC, it helps many. The side effects would be the same if the medicine dose was the same. ...Read more

Cough meds: AngelaM543 ~ cough meds and antibiotics to treat bronchitis is a well guarded urban myth that the Pharma world keep going with great positive effect on their bottom line and next to no effect on you, and lots of s/effects in some cases. Mucinex (guaifenesin) won't harm you, and it will happily do very little for your cough as well. STREAM inhalation probably does as much. Maybe more. Tumeric milk? Well.....?? ...Read more

Medications: Metocloparmide can be very effective for increasing breast milk production. The side effects happen only to some people and are reversible when you stop the medication. If you feel muscle rigidity with the medication you can take Benadryl (diphenhydramine) to counteract, and stop taking the medication and call your provider. An herbal alternative used is fenugreek tea/capsules. ...Read more

I am curious to know if a drink or two is safe and what the side-effects if it were to pass through the breast milk?

Hard to comment: There are arguments back and forth about the safety of alcohol consumption during breastfeeding there are some basic facts. Alcohol will pass through the breast milk and it lingers in the milk after it is made. Alcohol converts to byproducts (formaldehyde) that are toxic to the developing brain. There is no level of alcohol exposure that is considered safe to a developing infant. ...Read more

Breast feeding stopped for 5 years. I wanted to know side effects of restarting and how to start milk after such a long time. Please guide me.?

Breastfeeding: Hmm. I do not see any negative side-effects of restarting to breastfeed but I am curious why. However, it will work better if you have a new baby you can nurse. Start by breastfeeding every 1-2 hours for about 14 to 48 hours. Drink 8-12 glasses of fluids a day and consult your OB or a lactation specialist. You can also use a mechanical breast pump. ...Read more

Not necessary: Although breastfeeding has many benefits, its greatest nutritional value is for chidlren under 12 months of age. A preschool age child can eat a variety of nutritious foods and does not need breastmilk to be healthy.
