Dear I



Thank you for your question. I do not advise an aggressive form of "colon cleanse" that your refer to in your question. It is too harsh on the body, and prevents your body from learning how to naturally balance out your bowel movement itself. When I recommend psyllium husk to my clients I usually recommend a heaped teaspoon of the loose psyllium husk with a glass of water before bed followed by another glass of water. This regime should continue for at least three to six months but often goes on for longer. This slow-and-steady approach does not shock or stress your digestive system and provides a gentle healing stimulus instead of the heavy handed approach you refer to.



So to answer you I would recommend using 1-2 capsules or 1 teaspoon of psyllium husk before bed over a longer period of time than only for a short cleanse program.



Many thanks and warm regards

Thank you for your question. The answer will depend on the reason for your water retention, if it is indeed water retention that you are experiencing. I would recommend having a professional consultation to determine the underlying cause before you decide upon a course of treatment. I would much rather treat the underlying cause of any problem instead of just the superficial symptom. Once the cause is understood then you can decide on what products will be most beneficial, whether they are from Solal or another company.



Many thanks and warm regards

Dear T



Thank you for your question. The doctor who prescribed the Acnetane to you should have explained that a dry mouth is one of the more common side effects of the drug. Apart from stopping the drug you cannot stop the dryness, only manage it by ensuring that you keep well hydrated - always have a bottle of water handy and sip frequently. Ensure that you stay away from foods and drinks that dry the mouth out further - i.e. alcohol, sugar, etc.



You do not make it clear what part of your body you are referring to when you ask about cleansing so I'm going to assume you are asking about the oral cavity. You can continue to use toothpaste, floss and mouthwash to keep the oral cavity clean. Some products contain ingredients that are know to cause dryness in sensitive individuals so if you find that this is becoming a problem consider swopping to chemical-free options available at most health shops.



Many thanks and warm regards

Dear C

Many thanks for your question.

Your medical doctor has assessed you correctly. Your hormonal cycle is indeed out of balance. This imbalance now needs to be rectified. I suggest that you take both of the following products :

EVENING PRIMROSE OIL by Vital, as x 2 capsules daily after food. Evening Primrose Oil will assist in regulating your hormonal cycle, lessen a heavy menstrual flow, and even assist in settling an emotional imbalance where there is a sense of weepiness and mild depression.

VITEX AGNUS CASTUS BERRY by Viridian, as x 1 capsule, 3 times a day after food. Finish the full course.

Evening Primrose Oil can take up to a month before you feel the full benefit of a more regular menstrual cycle. Initally do take both of these products, and then stay with Evening Primrose oil as x 1 capsule daily.

I wish you well, and hope that you will soon feel more like your old self.

Warmest regards

Thank you for your question.

Pregnavit is a multivitamin, which has been formulated for expectant mothers. This mulivitamin alone will not make you pregnant. You need to understand that it will assist your body in being prepared for conception to take place. Many other factors have to be considered as well, e.g. eating a well balanced and nutritional eating plan, drinking sufficient filtered water on a daily basis, gentle exercise, and very importantly remaining destressed. Smoking is also a definite no-no!

Pregnavit is formulated presuming that all these other factors are being adhered to by a woman who is planning to fall pregnant. Hence, it is a good average multivitamin for this purpose.

Take Pregnavit as 1 - 2 tablets daily after food for ninety days. An omega supplement like MUM OMEGA by Equazen, should also be taken during this time span so as to assist in your baby having healthy brain, nerve and muscle tissue.

I wish you much luck with your future plans to have a baby.

Kind regards

Angela
