Common Questions and Answers about Coconut milk health risks


Avatar f tn Hello there! I never realized how important Vit D is to our body and health until my mom who has MS was diagnosed as deficient. Even without symptoms, too little vitamin D can pose health risks.
Avatar m tn Fermented soy products become nutritionally enhanced, more bioavailable, and reduce certain cancer risks… while promoting heart and bone health and relieving menopausal symptoms. During the fermentation process, the enzymes produced by the bacteria and yeast break down and become easier to digest. This makes the protein content of unfermented soy protein easier to digest also.

Choosing foods from the low to middle part of the glycemic index ranking system has proven to help many diabetics. And it could really help you too.
3060903 tn?1398568723 Most people actually need about 50 to 70 percent of their diet as healthful fats from organic, pastured eggs, avocados, coconut oil, real butter and grass-fed beef in order to optimize their health "When it comes to cholesterol levels, the lower the better, to avoid heart disease:" Cholesterol is actually NOT the major culprit in heart disease or any disease, and the guidelines that dictate what number your cholesterol levels should be to keep you "healthy" are fraught with
469720 tn?1388149949 Muscle weighs more than fat, for instance, and women and men who are very muscular and physically fit can have high BMIs without added health risks. Because of that, waist circumference is also a useful tool to assess abdominal fat. In general, men are considered overweight if their waist measurement is greater than 40 inches. And women, in general, are overweight if their waist measurement is greater than 35 inches. Even small reductions in weight can be beneficial.
Avatar m tn Conversely, for well over half a century, the media and a majority of health care officials have warned that saturated fats are bad for your health and lead to a host of negative consequences, including high cholesterol, obesity, and heart disease. There's little doubt that this wholly inappropriate fat phobia has had a lot to do with our burgeoning Alzheimer's epidemic. Fortunately, the importance of these healthy fats is starting to become more widely recognized.
Avatar n tn I am pretty desperate for some help and can not visit a doctor. Back when I did have health insurance it wouldn't pay for anything, was so expensive, doctors didn't think I needed to be tested for anything and basically told me to keep a good record of my daily eating habits along with my symptoms. I think they though I was crazy. So frustrating. So I tried to be very detailed below in the hopes that someone could help, in some way???
Avatar n tn I am shocked to hear that there are other health risks with high HDL...all my doctors, specialist, etc. are impressed with my numbers and think they are good. Should I be worried? How can I lower my HDL? Are there some underlying diseases that may be causing this to go up?
Avatar m tn HDL is what counterbalances LDL, although again, the risks of LDL are being questioned right now. Triglycerides are the worst type of fat. There are many good books on this and many recent studies being undertaken, but no consensus, so I'd do a lot of reading and then decide what I wanted to try.
476246 tn?1418874514 And as I'm sure you already know, you don't have to eat meat in order to get saturated fat into your diet. Coconut oil/milk and macadamia nuts are just a few delicious sources. And of course the objective wouldn't be to permanently raise the level of "bad" fats, but just temporarily elevate them to get clotting where you want it and then when the increased clotting factor is no longer needed, return to the healthier diet that's lower in saturated fats.
Avatar m tn The best professional way is for the doctor to explain why the patient needs to continue because the benefit outweighs the risks...or Chang the drug to an alternate one that better accomplishes prescribed then it's continued use must be discussed to ensualternative drug might be better tolerated and still give benefit then good medicine has been accomplished. be discussed suse must be existing ordiscontinued for a better medication of same or similar indication.
4973930 tn?1361793338 Also drink coffee and ice tea...use almond milk for cereal/oatmeal. Love coconut water. Use cinnamon/spices. Eat salads, beans, fish. You have to have a balance of fat, protein and carborhydrates. I was having a few problems were I would get violently sick and my hepatologist told me to eat smaller meals, and to eat several times a day instead of 3... Have found if my right back side starts hardening and contradracting it is on a day that I haven't hydrated enough.

Avatar f tn Either could be the culprit. 1. About a month ago I bought this organic shea hibiscus coconut shower gel. I've shaved with it about 5 times, I think. I think I might be allergic to something in it and it's gotten into my hair follicles. ?? I have discontinued the product. My last shave with it was 3 days ago. 2. Also about a month ago, I started an herbal supplement called Bacopa Monnerei. It's for increasing mental clarity/sharpness and memory.
Avatar f tn drink nothing but pineapple and pineapple juice for 3 days, worms can't take that much acid and die. You can also eat one tablespoon of coconut everyday in the breakfast. Also a small cup of grated carrot taken every morning is said to be offensive to all kinds of parasites. There are a million ways to get rid of the adult worms inside you, but avoiding reinfection is the hard part.
Avatar n tn OMG!! 46, will be 47 in June. Can't even tell you how everything seems to be failing, wrinkling, etc. & yes, it seems like it happened overnight. Perimenopausal as well. Had complete check up recently & no major health issues. However, my gyno has me hrt's(which I REALLY want to get off of). Added into the mix of all the skin issues mentioned, I am losing my hair like CRAZY. Anyone else having hair loss issues?
Avatar n tn I am 29 years old and 140 lbs/5'8" tall, I had my gallbladder removed February 98 in London, Ontario (where I lived). I first noticed pain one day in August/97, it came on so fast I fell to the felt like very bad hunger...just below my breast bone...this continued for about a half hour and then I got another one. The next day I went to the Doctor and she said it was an ulcer...without doing a blood test first! She wanted to start me on medication...
Avatar n tn At that point you will then know if you need to take steps to ensure your health in the future or maybe a clean bill of health will help ease your mind and maybe even ease your symptoms. Take care and keep us posted on how you are doing.
Avatar f tn put a capsule of the probiotic into your vaginal cream or better yet buy extra virgin coconut oil at vit store or any pharmacy area of walmart etc. WHILE u should never douche, using the coconut oil is safe and can be mixed with the probiotics for inside and around the area (use of clean fingers is fine) BTW there r other benefits to the above treatment; it will most likely get rid of any and all G.I. problems like, gas, bloating, flatulence, diarrhea, constipation etc.
Avatar n tn but now i have reduced the amount of panafcortelone I take daily as I am at the end of my course, as have been told it isnt something I can take long term and my eyes are becoming more irrated and puffy and my lips sore are getting worse. I havent changed any make up lately or products like toothpaste, washing powder. Does anyone have any sugguestions what it might be, as its dirvinbg me crazy!!!!
567228 tn?1318359066 I was sure it was one of the pills that I have been drinking and I mentioned it, but they said it might have been some coconut water that I have been drinking. CAN YOU BELIEVE THAT?!? Coconut water. I was prescribed prednisone 20mg 4x a day, Pepcid 20mg 2x per day and Benadryl 50mg per day. I contacted my ENDO and was told to continue my Methimazole and Propranolol as usual. She mentioned that if I broke out again to just take Benadryl. I grew up with asthma and allergic to the world.
Avatar n tn I'm very confused, and in a ton of pain right now, my lips are burning like crazy!! I am going to make an appointment with another derm (thank goodness I have health insurance) and see if this one is any better, and if he/she has any other suggestions. In the meantime I'll continue to use the antifunal, not eat any more shrimp(?).. and also continue to buy stock in the vaseline company, being that's what i put on my lips continuously all day.
Avatar m tn I also take a daily dose of 1000mg of Concentrated Extract Milk Thistle by Rexall, available at Wal-Mart. Sam-E proved not to really benefit the liver, so I stopped that after several years.
Avatar n tn eating yogurt (or douching with it) is useless, as are lactobacillus products you can purchase in health food stores. Intensive research has been going on for a decade to convert the protective kinds of lactobacilli into products that will successfully colonize the vagina, but to date success has been spotty at best. So maybe someday, but not yet. So what do you do?
Avatar n tn If he/she is unhelpful or unwilling to consider your health options, seek either medical or professional assistance elsewhere. Suggestions: Be responsible for knowing what goes into your body and what the risks are. Meat and milk these days are full of growth hormones... any links? Could be, but find out what is best for you. Believe it or not, mineral oil and biproducts can affect your hormones. Read all you can, ask questions and stay grounded.
Avatar n tn I think I/we can guess or prognose just as well or better than they can at times particularly if we know something about health and or ourselves and our own health. Never be afraid to speak up because I feel strongly that digestive tract problems are real and translate into other real nasty symptoms like this. Fortunately we can prevent much of this & need to prevent it from happening.
Avatar f tn I had upper and lower jaw surgery 3 years ago and my health has never been the same. I was given 4 plates and screws in the mandible and maxilla and got the same story about the bioavailability of titanium, but I question it. I have done some moderate research over the last few months and I found one excellent study about a very small percentage of patients having significant health systems since receiving Ti implants.
