Avatar m tn Drink plenty of water! The following is for Kidney stones There are nutrients you need to add—and to limit. Vitamin A (not betacarotene) promotes healthy functioning of the urinary tract, so people who are deficient in it sometimes form kidney stones more easily than others. You’ll find vitamin A in most good general multiple vitamin and mineral supplements (which you and everyone to take even when you supplement with individual nutrients).

Avatar f tn (The “vitamin C causes kidney stonesmyth has been largely disproven.) Echinacea. Some readers may be surprised to read that echinacea can be used daily to prevent infection as well as as a treatment once infection is present. Astragalus, Andrographus, and Picrorrhiza. If used as individual herbs, 2 to 6 grams of dried Astragalus root or dried Andrographus daily is appropriate and safe.

Avatar n tn Someone said they thought distilled water can cause kidney stones. They were wrong. Hard water is the cause of kidney stones and cataracts and distilled water is the cure. My cousin had cataracts at 50 yr of age because he only drank tap water because some bimbo told him distilled water was bad for him. He had to have cataracts removed from both eyes at 50 because he was so blind he could not see the the biggest letter on the eye chart.
Avatar n tn I have a nineteen year old young man in my office currently who has shingles. There you go, another myth put to rest.
Avatar n tn It's an urban myth...gallstones, unlike kidney stones can not be dissolved - and even if they could, you would NOT want the remnants of them "passing through" as this "flush" suggests would happen....the fragments or small stones would become trapped, possibly in the bile duct. This old wives' tale is at best useless and at worst dangerous...please don't even try it....
Avatar n tn Cynocobalamin is the medical term - These injections have been livesavers for those suffering from Pernicious Anemia - and a boost of energy to those willing to use them, but they don't keep weight off not to a degree worth noticing and certainly not for the long term - its a bit like the cabbage soup diet, interesting, a fad, but not a longterm solution. Best regards with your weight loss endevours - I know it can be a bloody nuisance when it won't shift!!

Avatar m tn It has that traction because of a combination of folklore, myth and word of mouth which is much more than the science has borne out.” Medical science is full of unknowns, and maybe it works for some people at a different dose. Scientifically, echinacea follows the Last Cure Rule: Whatever people are taking or doing when the illness goes away gets the credit.

Avatar f tn It could also be that you have tiny kidney stones that your body is trying to expel and they are not big enough to cause you pain as they are traveling down from your bladder. It may be good that you get your ursine checked when you feel these symptoms. That is the only thing I can think of that could be causing these symptoms.
Avatar f tn DON'T!) Endometriosis is caused by too much estrogen in your diet and enviroment. If you're not aware of it and don't make lifestyle changes, you'll probably get it again as it is the disease of the 21st century that 1 in 20 women have, most unknowingly. There is WAY too much estrogen in our world that is sterilizing us women!
Avatar n tn If it brings on the symptoms, you've probably found the cause. If not, add something else into your diet to test for that. But also, if you haven't already, do get some medical advice to rule out the nasties. The odds are very much that it's not anything really scary, but you definitely should check to make sure. My doctor told me that approx 25% of people have IBS. Wishing you well.
Avatar n tn LATER I RESEARCHED THAT THAT WAS A MYTH. [14 DAYS THING] THE SITE THAT TOLD ME IT WAS A MYTH SAID...MOST WOMAN OVULATE 12-16 DAYS BEFORE EXPECTED PERIOD...WELL I HAD SEX THOSE DAYS TOO.

I GIRL HAS TO KNOW, IF THERE'S A LITTLE HUMAN IN HER, OR IF SHE'S EXPERIENCING ONE HELL OF A FOOD BABY!!!
Avatar n tn I tried so long not to get pregnant and now that I want to it isn't happening. I'm healthy, I exercise regularly, I eat a good diet, I'm taking a prenatal vitamin, I don't know what to do from now until I see my doc and I feel like there is no one to talk to!
Avatar n tn Just some data on myself... I'm 41 years old non-smoker No history of migranes Current headaches (again, docs say stress induced but I have mine 80-90% of time). Has anyone had success with a Home treatment? (heat? ice?other)?
Avatar n tn Follow up with her for blood work to determine the incidence of kidney stones and if they'll develop while taking this medication. She says this blood test will determine if I'll get them or not. Bloods come back negative, no stones ever from the Topamax. I don't buy it so if anyone here has better or different insight, please let me know. I won't mind the Topamax for the weight loss side affects, but something tells me I won't get that lucky.
