What food is good for me if I have fibromyalgia?Is green tea beneficial.?

Fibro foods: This is mostly a trial and error but foods high in omega threes like fish help with pain. Stay away from junk foods, and additives.

I have psoriasis and I heard ginger tea is good for this illness.. How many times a day should I drink this tea max.?

Moderation is best: Hi SweetC, Because this is a natural substance and not a pharmaceutical medication, I am unsure about the exact amount/dosage that you should be taking because there are no good clinical trials to guide us. But I would recommend moderation. In other words, a few glasses a day is fine but I don't feel that drinking a few gallons a day is a good idea. Hope this helps! ...Read more

Is regular decaf Lipton tea good for you and also is it low in acid bec I may have lpr.dont like green tea much ?

Decaf Lipton: tea is ok. You may find it easier to tolerate that some green teas. It does contain some beneficial compounds such as Theanine which keeps us focused and relaxed.

I eat daily 4 tandoori rotis ...is this good for health or not ...give me a suggestion...

I eat daily 4 tandoori rotis ...is this good for health or not ...give me a suggestion...

Likely healthy: I believe that the medicinal element in tandoori rotis is the fenugreek. Claims about fenugreek are extensive - apparently curing everything from stomach ailments to cholesterol to eczema. There is not enough scientific evidence for any of the claims to be able to confidently recommend this herbal supplement. That being said, it is safe, tastes good and if any of that's true, then even better! ...Read more

I know green tea is supposed to be good for you, but i prefer black tea. Are there antioxidants in regular black tea as well?

I know green tea is supposed to be good for you, but i prefer black tea. Are there antioxidants in regular black tea as well?

No, not same: The potent antioxidant called GCG in most green teas is sensitive to heat and fermentation. Thus black tea, albeit w other possible health benefits, is largely depleted of GCG. But some green teas are quickly roasted (ex few regions in China) and have less GCG. Most others dry the leaves without heat. Green tea should not be brewed in boiling water, but optimally 160-180F depending on type ...Read more

I would you like to talk about my health that is not good bcz only food is available is junk/fast. So guide me vitamins or for white hairs.

To make up for lack of fruits and veggies advise ORAC Energy Greens or similar product. ...Read more
