Helped yes, cured???: Tinospora is an interesting compound. It has many immune stimulating properties, which is how it likely helps with swine flu.

Can tinospora be used to treat type 2 diabetes?

Can tinospora be used to treat type 2 diabetes?

Will any of the substances, turmeric, fenugreek, and giloy (Tinospora cordifolia) help protect against the loss of bone mass ?

Voodoo snake oil: Hi. No. You're right about at peak bone mass in life at age 29. Get enough dietary calcium and vitamin D (that will probably require supplements). You can buy that herbal junk, but you're just enriching the snake oil salespeople. Also for skeletal health, get weight-bearing exercise, and don't smoke. Good luck! ...Read more

What is a healthy diet to follow daily?

Same as everywhere: Eliminate juices, sodas, or other sweet drinks. Drink water. Don't eat fried foods (chicken nuggets, french fries etc). Watch the sugar content in cereals and snacks. Serve few starches, including breads, pastas, and (white) grains. Add more vegetables and fruits, but not too many fruits because of all the sugar they contain. In short, eat an organic, whole grain, no added sugar diet. ...Read more

Trying to lose weight I am 130lbs over healthy. I diet and excercise daily and want to know if too much exercise can bring back my migraines?

It should not: It depends on what you mean by too much exercise.
