Proven vs unproven: By definition, "alternative" is different than modern western medicine. Generally any drug, herb, treatment, or procedure that stands up to rigorous scientific scrutiny is included in modern medicine. The problem is that many alternative practices, herbs etc do not stand up to scientific scrutiny and cannot be shown to work. They therefore remain "alternative". Be careful and watch your wallet. ...Read more

White rice is our staple food and I always eat that evry lunch and dinner. Can it even worsen constipation?

White rice is our staple food and I always eat that evry lunch and dinner. Can it even worsen constipation?

Yes, however...: White rice has very little fiber (whereas brown rice has more fiber). However, you can minimize the constipating effects of white rice by eating more food rich in fiber: fruits, vegetables, beans, nuts and seeds. Try brown rice too- it's more nutritious.
I also recommend magnesium supplements and the ayurvedic tonic triphala.

Calculating other relative variables involves differential calculus and a deep knowledge of Madelbrot Sets and is therefore beyond the scope of this discussion.

If you eat a food with a glycemic index of 80 with an equal amount of a food with a glycemic index of 20 the average for the meal is 50. So it is unwise to eat high-glycemic foods on their own but if eaten in moderation and combined with low-glycemic foods they are relatively safe to eat. ...Read more
