Q. I am planning to switch over my son to vegetarian diet.

I am planning to switch over my son to vegetarian diet as he develops a allergy while consuming Non-Vegetarian diet. I do not understand why he has developed this strange issue and we have been having Non-Veg diet for generations. I feel pity for him as every time he consumes Non-Veg diet, he develops a problem and I can never understand the reason. I did try several veg dishes and he feels comfortable in them. I would love him having chicken and mutton dishes and I really feel sorry for him. I am feeling nervous as I have several doubts on vegetarian food. Do you think by carrying out Veg foods can he develop good health? I hope someone answers by question
AHey…Please understand that many people are switching over to vegetarian food these days and you need not worry. He can increase on lentils sprouted beans, milk, and other veg food items as they do have good source of energy.

Q. My close friends have switched to Chinese medicine and they say it’s good with their experience.

My close friends have switched to Chinese medicine and they say it’s good with their experience. I want to know in what way does Chinese medicine is different from western medicine?
A1it's an holistic method that tries to help people live a balanced life in order to achieve health. i can't say that they are wrong, but i can tell you that combining it with western medicine could be more beneficial. Chines medicine cannot help too much with things like infectious diseases or Diabetes type 1.
A2If you are trying to compare, then let me tell you some. Chinese medicines are found with fewer side effects, it concentrates on whole body, and it concentrates on the real problem and not the symptoms. Western medicine has done well in surgical methods and techniques to identify some disease with genetic link and any fractures by the help of x-rays, etc. If you have an advance cancer a Chinese medicine cannot cure but western medicine can treat them by its removal. Over all Chinese medicine concentrates on prevention and western medicine focuses on cures. I think I answered you…..
