What should I take for my skin extremely wrinkled. I’m 70 yrs old and have more than 7 years taking 50 mg of thyroid medicine but I don’t see any improvement in my health. All the Drs. I have seen said the same ” my thyroid is under control. However, my hair, nail, skin, stomach, and my mood are in a terrible shape. Please help me!!
Hello Doctor Bob, I’ve got question for you. 3 weeks ago, I noticed I have floaters on both eyes, on the right eye I have one big, and on left eye I have three small. My doctor told me, It´s caused bleeding into vitreous by pulling the retina or something like that ( I don’t know this medicinal concepts ). I am your fan, your website is wonderful, and I read on your website the carrot can be helpful to get rid of these floaters. True is, last month I had three anginas in a row, and few days after floaters appeared. Do you think eating one carrot a day, or drinking smoothie consisting carrot, floaters will disappear ? Is it bleeding into eye caused by lack of vitamin A ? Thank you for advice!
Carrots will help floaters MAYBE if there is liver compromise. If you have angina, there is a vascular issue. Vitamin C (red, yellow, and orange bell peppers) would be a wise suggestion. (More info in video)

I have taken this along with 5000 units of vitamin D but my last dexa scan showed no improvement. I have also been walking almost every day for at least a mile. What do you suggest for your patients?
I talk about osteoporosis in my female hormones and #PreventSurgery book. I would encourage you to have your vitamin D levels tested (available in liquid form), and stay away from sugar. (More info in video)
My daughter is 15 years old and has been losing a little hair and weight. I was told its because, she is not having enough bowel movements. Do you have any other suggestions that can help me?

You said at 1:45 and at 2 something just flipped around. Which one is it? Elevated cholesterol and triglycerides or elevated cholesterol and normal triglycerides?

I’m 30 years old and I recently a few months ago had the hand foot and mouth disease that I caught from my toddler. Ever since then I have had a ringing in my right ear only. The doctors only want me to take steroids I don’t think that that’s going to do anything.
