Common Questions and Answers about Effects of smoking basil


Avatar n tn It also improves focus and has a huge list of health benefits, probably why they drink it three times a day in India -- where it is known as the escort of Shiva, the elixir of life, Holy Basil and many other names of reverence. It is now also commonly mixed with Yerba Mate, to make Holy Mate; which is a great alternative to coffee that I have now been consuming almost daily for a couple of months.
Avatar n tn Baudelaire was right. However, all things in moderation (including moderation) has always been my motto. I have grown my own, but that is not practical at present. And I do know how to cook with it. And my short term memory is so far gone that I have enough trouble driving as it is. The AD my PA prescribed for sleep (trazodone) has a bunch of bad effects. (OK, "men with erections lasting longer than 24 hours should seek medical assistance" sounds OK, but the rest are scary.
Avatar m tn Basil juice is an effective remedy for sore eyes and night blindness, which is generally caused by lack of Vitamin A. Two drops of basil juice can work wonders for the eyes. It soothes eyes and reduces stress. Also it can protect from conjunctivitis, boils and other problems of the eyes which are caused mainly due to bacterial and fungal infections by washing eyes with water soaked in tulsi leaves. 9.
Avatar m tn I am going to see my doctor again soon, just to go over a few things, and hes well aware of the pot smoking, and doesnt see it as a big problem either. I was thinking about seeing a naturopath too, i guess it couldnt hurt. I'm not concerned about the money, and I think I have coverage for that through my work. At this point i'm willing to try anything.
280700 tn?1210287416 My side effects were hot flashes, moodiness, breast tenderness, cramping, fatigue, nausea, and extreme hunger which lead to weight gain and I'm still feeling those side effects. Since so many of those side effects are symptoms of pregnancy it was very upsetting to find out I didn't ovulate and I'm not pregnant. Hoping for better results next cycle...
5553641 tn?1369843747 Some people are experiencing high blood pressure in response to excess salt intake or caffeine, while others don't. If you are drinking a lot of coffee or eating a lot of salt, you may try to modify your diet. So, natural ways to reduce blood pressure are: - Exercise a lot (aerobic exercise or relaxed hiking in the nature) - Lose weight (if overweight) - Get the daily necessary amount of magnesium, calcium and potassium.
Avatar n tn That said, in the spirit of full disclosure, I have never been a big fan of Basil on Pizza and much prefer a mix of pepperoni, fresh garlic and raw onions. No studies btw on this, and I'm sure others will chime in with their own opinions -- just my personal opinion after close to 50 years of eating pizza.
Avatar m tn We may associate cholesterol with fatty foods, but most of the waxy substance is made by our own bodies. The liver produces 75% of the cholesterol that circulates in our blood. The other 25% comes from food. At normal levels, cholesterol actually plays an important role in helping cells do their jobs. But cholesterol levels are precariously high in more than 100 million Americans.

Avatar n tn Hi, I haven't started treatment due to the fear of the side effects. I go in to a panic just thinking about them. My doc also told me that they don't know the long term effects of treatment either. It could bring on some other terrible illness for all I know. That just sets the panic mode off more. I am being treated at Duke University. Since I've put treatment on hold, my doc wants to see me every six months. He is going to do another biopsy in a couple of years.
Avatar m tn I've got a bit of OCD (mainly with turning things off) and have suffered a bit of paranoia from time to time which I partially blame on my cannabis smoking days, which are long since over!
501944 tn?1224059621 I rather vomit then go threw all the side effects I've heard of!!! But vomiting is affecting my daily life. I think its been about 5 days since I last threw up and thats the longest of gone since probably November. Now its coming out the other end (I think is worse) Im going any where from 4-10 times a day and its not nice! So I dont think theres much you can do. Its just living with crohns!! Ive tried changing how I eat and even that hasnt made a difference.
358304 tn?1409713092 1. Are the adrenal surges and night sweats at night from anxiety? He did answer this one and said he does think so yes. 2.

How long can I physically go with little to NO sleep? 5. Can you die from insomnia? 6. I've gotten SO much better over the past 2 years with my anxiety without meds. How can I become EVEN BETTER without meds?
173975 tn?1216261375 I've been undetected since January 2003, finished tx April 2003. I'm dealing with long term effects of genotype 3, namely steatosis (NAFLD). Just had another sonogram and it looks like not much has changed from three years ago when I was first dx with this. I'm scheduled to go back to my gastro to find out if there's anything I can do for it besides diet and exercise. Also have a member of my extended family with chronic HBV which is why I started coming to this forum.
544292 tn?1268886268 Good Morning Tramadol Warriors! Welcome! So happy to see all of you, and welcome new friends. This is a good place to be if you want to get off Tramadol ... You can do it!
544292 tn?1268886268 And Like Nancy in my crazy red shoulder padded double breasted BLAZER, I JUST SAY NO TO DRUGS!!! ... and now I'll rest, try and let some of the bad energy of the pain and this last week go so I can work all weekend and next week too. One day at a time. I was pretty sure last night when I got home and was so tired and disoriented that today might be like this. It is worth it.No matter what. Getting off this stuff will save me a HUGE amount of pain in the future. I liked waking up happy!
163305 tn?1333672171 Absolutely under no circumstances do I want my kids using/smoking pot or anything else. But when they are out of the house and paying their own bills and making their own way in the world, there really isn't a whole bunch I can do. If I saw that their drinking or smoking was becoming an issue, you're damned right I would say something. I don't know.... There are inherent risks to everything we do, including walking across the street.
192055 tn?1263559137 I also have drug-induced Lupus that mimics Rheumatoid Arthritis mainly in my fingers and wrists that moves around about every 3 days. There are an awful lot of side effects that go along with drugs. Please do the research. There has to be a reason.
Avatar f tn Every one wants the pills and artificial drugs to make them better,and if you do that is alright, modern medicine is amazing and helps many, but you are also ok with all of the side effects that drug is going to give you to treat this ONE problem. As long as you do not have that stupid frame of mind from all of comercials,ads,ect... have told you, you will enjoy food again.
Avatar n tn 1. Holy basil (tulsi): Consuming few leaves of tulsi (2-3) leaves anytime gives relief from acidity. 2. Drinking water in the early morning controls acidity, as water is a good neutralizer for acid. 3. Pranayama: Deep breathing the right way until body feels relaxed or for about ten minutes is a good home remedy. 4. Indian gooseberry (Amla): One table spoon Amla with one table spoon haritaki (chebulic myroblan) is best acid pacifier. 5. Turmeric (Haridra): This is well known healer.
Avatar n tn first of all if you have plants around where you are to then you should get rid of them, plants are one of the main places that Gnats/fruit flies are attracted to because of the moist soil from being watered. good luck keeby and let me know how it goes.
Avatar n tn that isn't enough to cause any type of side effects, water retention or pregnancy. A much higher intake of hcg would be needed to increase your chances or pregnancy or multiple births.. don't let that scare you.
Avatar m tn Formication refers to the sensation that resembles that of insects crawling on or under the skin. This can be associated with onset of menopause or hormone withdrawal, or medical conditions such as diabetic neuropathy, skin cancer, syphilis, or herpes zoster. Have this checked by your doctor for proper evaluation. Take care and regards.
Avatar n tn My psychiatrist is weening me off the Lexapro and is giving me Topamax which should induce weight-loss and also lessen the side effects of going off the Lexapro. Unfortunately, there is a lot of side effects of Topomax as well but weight gain is not one of them and need to loose the weight now !!!!
Avatar n tn I do have tingling and swelling in the right thigh and hip and the doctor says it's neuropathy from the Celiac but never mentioned the effects of high B6. I'm going to go off the multivit with Bs and try to eat less red meat. Thanks to this blog, I've got some answers. Thank you to everyone who shared their stories. They all have a similar thread, don't they?
Avatar n tn I'm on day 4 of cold turkey. It's not easy, but cold turkey got me off smoking and it suits my personality; I enjoy a challenge. I prefer to see this as me against the drug and just focus on winning. Fortunately I do go to the gym, Judo, play football and play in a band so I have lots of good, healthy distractions, and this keeps my endorphins in good order and helps alleviate withdrawal. It's not doom and gloom folks. For me, it's a state of mind and this is one fight I am winning.
Avatar n tn Hi- There are a couple topics in this forun that seem to be similar. One thing that is a different approach I'll suggest is neck problems. It took me seeing 2 different ENTs and all the other specialists for me to even open up to the idea that it might be my neck. I had a clean CT and MRI and was on antibiotics without much gain. I'm not sure my neck is causing 100$% of my problems, but its a least a contributing factor. See this page: http://www.chiroweb.com/archives/09/08/15.
Avatar n tn Be sure that all of your questions have been answered. What are the possible side effects of methotrexate?
