Q: My mom was recently diagnosed with breast cancer and is following alternative protocols – the Budwig diet and the Kelley enzyme protocol. Both are well-recognised internationally, but we’ve been battling to find someone locally who could monitor her progress, or suggest a diet or supplements, or even just help with her everyday problems while on the protocol, like nausea. I think very few people here know about it, and we’re not doctors so we’re worried about just mixing a lot of different remedies. Do you know of these protocols, would you recommend them, or could you perhaps help us in any way? I know your book is for common ailments, but thought I’d at least find out!

Haemorrhoids are small, blood-filled swellings caused by dilated varicose veins. At first, they are located just inside the anus but can sometimes protrude. Haemorrhoids are not dangerous but they can be painful and uncomfortable. Many people have haemorrhoids at some point in their lives. Constipation and prolonged straining when using the toilet are believed to contribute to the formation of haemorrhoids by increasing the pressure in the veins. Haemorrhoids are also very common during and after pregnancy, and in those who may be carrying a few extra pounds.

Q: I was listening to your talk on 702 a while ago. I really would like to try a natural remedy for post-nasal drip. I have used tablets with cortisone in them, plus other tablets from the chemist. They help for a while then it starts up again, especially at night, and I start coughing.
