Q. I don’t want to go on non-vegetarian. This is Tom Greg; I have been vegetarian for about eight months. Often I’m really feeling tired. I’m taking iron supplements but that does not seem to help. Can my vegetarian diet be the reason for getting tired? If so what can I do to stop it, I don’t want to go on non-vegetarian. Thank You.

A. it is a known fact that vegetarians knock at least 10 yrs off their lives just by being vegetarians. you must take in proteins and all the other minerals and vitamins your body and brian needs in order to function and survive. you cannot and will not make it on veggies alone. i know this because i am a doctor. and i would never suggest a vegetarian only diet to anyone. your body must have the vitamins and minerals found in meats and dairy products, no ifs ands or buts about it. if you are going to be strictly on veggies, then yes, you can expect to be tired, and slown down.

Q. I don’t have any idea about herbal medicine. Hi! My 7 years old daughter is suffering from asthma and this gets severe with cold. I would like to know, is there any herbal medicine or syrup that my daughter can take for her asthma and cold. I don’t have any idea about herbal medicine. Thank You.

A. HELLO JUSTIN,their is herbal meds out there,to help people from getting a cold,because when a person with asthma-gets a cold,it will bring on a attack. once an asthma attack starts,you have to use conventional meds.bronchodilators(inhalers)-steroids-methylxanthines-and sometimes oxygen. Herbal meds work slower than conventional meds-you cant use them for a disease like asthma,because time is everything when a person has and asthma attack,because no one can predict how long an attack will last---my suggestion to you is to find a pulmonologist(DR).--not a regular dr. IF you can keep your child from getting a cold--from being around dust in the house-smoke--fumes,and some odors--an asthma attack can start from exertion(exercise-induced asthma)---foods/wine-some dyes found in candy(yellow dye)--aspirin some cheeses--spores-pollens,animal danders.If you decide to try herbal meds(PLEASE)check with your DR. first------mrfoot56
